If you are thinking about tying the knot or just want to renew a lifelong commitment to the one you love, why not consider John U. Lloyd Beach State Park? The park is host to hundreds of weddings and vow renewals each year. Easy access to the beach for set up and our staff’s friendly service makes this the perfect location for an unforgettable beach wedding or ceremony. Please contact us for more information and details.

Tuesday, November 11th is Veterans Day. In honor of all our active, retired, and deceased military personnel we are offering free admission into the park for everyone. Please join us on this very important day.

On behalf of our entire staff we look forward to serving you and hope that we can satisfy your appetite for some fun in the sun at the beach.
