Shadmoor State Park is named for the abundant shadbush that grows there, though it is probably best known for the two…More concrete bunkers that remain there from World War II, when they were built to hold artillery guns and protect the East Coast.
With more than 2,400 feet of ocean beach, visitors can access Shadmoor State Park by two stairways or lookout over the bluffs. On the hiking trails, you'll also see black cherry trees and clusters of the federally endangered sand plain gerardia plant. The elevated platforms are great for birdwatching; there is a fresh water lake; and salt water fishing is allowed. Dogs are allowed, as long as they are on a leash no more than 6 feet long.
