John U. Lloyd Beach State Park
About John U. Lloyd Beach State Park
A NOTE FROM THE MANAGER
While most people around the country are covering themselves with more clothing to prevent frostbite… visitors at John U. Lloyd Beach State Park are covering themselves with suntan lotion to prevent sunburn. It is that time of the year when both the air temperature and the water temperature remain at an average of 75 degrees Fahrenheit. Cooler temperatures at the park give visitors the opportunity to see manatees in Whiskey Creek while other visitors may be seen on the jetty wishing that they could be on one of the departing cruise ships.
The combination of rough surf conditions and unusually high tides during the past few months has created considerable beach erosion at the park. I am happy to report that a maintenance dredging project has been scheduled for early January and, hopefully, will be completed by the end of March and just in time for our sea turtle nesting season. Your patience and understanding during this project is appreciated while we attempt to preserve and protect our most valuable asset.
On behalf of our entire staff, I would like to wish each and everyone one of you a safe and happy New Year.
