2020 The beach and boardwalk will open with a reduced footprint starting on 5/23/2020. When there is good weather we will have at least one concession stand open. When the weather is good, waterslides are open 11:00-5:00 as well as several kiddie rides. The olympic pool, mini golf, playground, cafe, banquet rooms and arcade are closed for the summer. We anticipate that we will often close our gates on weekends to cars and walk in patrons when we reach our new lowered capacity so don’t recommend that you come here from far. Earlier arrival is recommended. If you do visit, all swimming is at your own risk. You should maintain 6 feet of distance from all others. Maintain 15 feet between beach blankets. 5 people maximum per group (same household) Stay to your right on the boardwalk and all walkways. Wear face covering where close contact, and always at concessions, service areas, restrooms and attractions, unless you have health concerns or are under 2 years old. If you don’t feel well, please stay home. If you develop symptoms while here, please go home. Do not litter..please protect our staff. We value you and want to do all we can to keep everyone safe
