Breezy Point Beach and Campground is a popular destination that serves a high volume of visitors during summer weekends and holidays. To ensure the safety of our visitors and protection of the facilities, the park has a limited capacity.

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

When Breezy is closed due to being full to capacity, individuals and groups with camping reservations and/or groves reservations (25 parking spaces) will be admitted, as parking is reserved for those purposes.

Based on recent experience and visitation trends, and depending on good weather, Breezy Point Beach and Campground will fill to capacity and close on Memorial Day and Fourth of July holiday weekends, Labor Day weekend and likely to fill many other weekends during the course of the season. Please take this into consideration when planning your outing.
