Details of Demarest Lloyd State Park

Overview of Demarest Lloyd State Park

This park is one of the best kept secrets in the Massachusetts forest and park system. Here, an 1800-foot saltwater beach is backed by rambling hills of beach grass and shaded, grassy picnic sites. A broad, scenic marsh lines the Slocum River on the park's eastern edge. The beach is ideal for families with children. The Buzzards Bay surf is calm and shallow, meaning warm water temperatures through most of the summer. It is also a great spot to see egrets, herons, ospreys, terns and hawks.
