First Time CampingI am a grandmother of three married to a man that has to have his sink but he allowed us to go anyway. Well, first tent etc. Neighbors were tired of watching 'the comedy show' of us trying to put up the tent, that they did it, leaving us only a few touches like screen windows and doors. My first tent had been up in father-in-laws yard for a few months being tested so of course most of the seams were weak. After we got it up, I notice many weak spots, well the funniest was when we jammed the blow-up beds to gether of course on the outside due to a weak seam was half the bed!!!! So I went to the store the next day and purchased another tent, but more sofisticated and of course we still had kind neighbors..After all was set, we noticed the tent was too close to the fire grid and would have to go without!! The weather did not go over 70 in August. My experience was enlightning but I intend to do it again, the actual reservation was great with many conveniences, beach walking distance, showers and bathrooms, store and lots of oppurtunity for bike riding for my city children. That place is so clean and comfortable and of course secure, police patroling etc.
Go At Low TideI just took my 18 month old daughter to the Salisbury Beach reservation and it was very nice at low tide. Very clear water, not too cold, and plenty of space for her to run around. It was nicer than I remembered.
Dirty And Horrible ... What A ChangeMy husband and I often visited Salisbury beach in the last couple years but yesterday was our first and last visit this year! It was dirty and overall the people around were not friendly - we saw several being loaded into police cars for fights or other issues. I was very upset about how much this area has changed!
Salisbury Beach State ReservationOur family visited Salisbury Beach State Reservation for the first time this summer, after 10+ years of going to a popular beach in Gloucester!! Paying $7 in Salisbury sure beats the $20 we were paying in Gloucester. The boardwalks to the beach are awesome...the bathrooms were clean and well maintained-I must admit that my 12 year old daughter would not use the toliets though, as they are kind of like a porta-potty!! No smell though. A definite visit again beach!
