A real highlight to visiting Hammonasset Beach State Park in Madison is a trip to the Meigs Point Nature Center. The Nature Center is home to various native animals including those that have been injured and cannot live on their own in the wild. Visitors can get some hands on experience with the touch tank or visit resident Blue Jay, “Cutie,” that likes to mimic noises produced in the nature center. The Nature Center is open year round so you can stop in and visit.
Hours 10:00AM - 5:00PM Tuesday-Sunday
During the summer there is a parking charge to get into Hammonasset Beach State Park. In the off-season parking is free.
