Report Details

At Wallace St you sometimes see vehicles cutting firewood on the beach, and there are almost always tire tracks on beach. There is no sign prohibiting anythng; there was a State sign telling beach rules, but it was knocked down by winter seas a few years ago. There are also people camping on the beach in the summer, and no sign prohibiting it. I've called State Police a dozen times over the past ten years, and they have gotten rid of the most obnoxious ones.

Remarkably little debris - anticipating a different story after the King tides!
