The rating isnt about the beach its self. Its about the people that come here. I was on the beach for 30 minutes and i picked up so much litter it was an eye opener for me. I cant wrap my head around how people are still litering on our already dirty beaches in ct. This really needs to stop. You bring stuff with you take it back off the beach with you.
Nice little nature center where children can learn about the local aquatic wildlife. There is a room where the kids can touch various seaside (lobster, skate, horseshoe crabs, etc). Volunteer at the touch tank to explain the different ocean life in the tank. Front desk staff watched us like hawks which made me feel a little uncomfortable .
Everyone was very nice, and was knowledgeable. It was fun, I saw kids at the touch tank, full of delight... Even my friends from South America were excited to see the camouflage and defenses, of the ocean life, horseshoe crabs, skates, flounders... And we touched the snakes too.
Arrived late and felt very rushed by staff. I do not understand the need to inform the public every few minutes you close at 5. Simply telling people were closed when the time comes should suffice. Otherwise, was very informative.
The beach at the Meigs Point Nature Center is nice. There is a pavilion with restrooms, showers, picnic tables and vending machines. The water is good, WATCH OUT FOR JELLYFISH. Overall, nice place to go wading in the water.
Its a must-do long with camping at Hammonasset every summer. The new building is amazing and the events that they do for the kids to learn about science and nature are well worth our time.
If you go to Hammonasset you must stop at the nature center. Wonderful collection of labeled animals, history of Hammonasset, knowledgeable staff and so much more.
Available for birthday parties/events, lots of parking (even on busy weekend beach days). Friendly and knowledgeable employees, great family destination!
My kids love going here every time we go camping. They love to see the animals and touch the ones they can.
Always something new to see at the Meigs Point Nature Center! Free admission. Open all year round!
A great place to go with the kids, and dont miss going downstairs to play with the lobsters!
A beautiful state park, beautiful beach!
First time here. It wont be my last.
Great beach, tons of seashells
Great views. Clean beaches.
