At Breezy Point Beach, there’s fun for the whole family. Our beach is a popular destination for fossil hunting, swimming in the bay and fishing. Because of the popularity of the beautiful beach, especially during summer weekends and holidays, the park often fills to capacity. We highly recommend you visit our Facebook page  or call ahead of time to ensure the capacity status of the beach. 

Breezy Point Beach & Campground is open for the 2022 season through October 31.

Please be aware that during warmer month jellyfish may be present in the water. All patrons swim at their own risk and there are no refunds. 

During periods of high visitation, when we have reached maximum capacity, the beach will be closed and traffic will be turned away from the entrance. When that occurs, no additional vehicles or visitors will be allowed to enter; including additional members of a party that may have already entered. If you are not traveling in the same vehicle with others in your party, we suggest you arrive at the same time or carpool. If any vehicle leaves the beach, it will not be permitted to reenter until the park reopens.

Based on recent experience with visitation trends, Breezy Point Beach & Campground will fill to capacity and close by midday on Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Labor Day weekends. Many other warm weekends will likely reach capacity as well. Please take this into consideration when planning your outing.

For information about beach capacity, visit our Facebook page  or call 410-535-0259.
