False Cape State Park


Featuring six miles of unspoiled beaches in an ocean-to-freshwater bay habitat, False Cape State Park also includes dunes, woodland, farm fields, salt marsh, maritime forest and wooded swamps. The extensive wildlife boasts over 300 species of nesting and migratory songbirds, shorebirds and ducks (inclusive of a returning snow geese population of 10,000), otters, white-tailed deer, red fox, loggerhead turtles, American bald eagles, feral pigs, wild horses, and a number of interesting reptiles. From April through October, visitors may travel into the heart of the park on a tram and explore by foot from there. Other times of the year, the park can be accessed by boat or on foot through Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge.
