Very nice day trip from the city! Variety is the spice of life and this park embodies this saying perfectly (with a beach, park, trails, 911 memorial, animal watching (prairie dogs, army of geese, lots of birds and pink seashells). Will visit again next year.

Pretty views of the sound, but this trail is not really dog friendly. Maybe I didn’t go to the right spots, but I am very disappointed that it was rated as dog friendly on the app.

Its been a long time since I've been to Sherwood Island State Park, but as I remember it... it was fun. Typical state park; picnic areas, restrooms, softball diamonds, but this one has a beach too.
