Anyone planning to go to Gunnison Beach should be prepared for biting flies. My girlfriend and I went there for three days during the July 4th weekend and the bugs were worse than I can remember in 10 years of going to that beach. The wind changed one afternoon and brought a nice breeze off the ocean, blowing the flies back into the woods and making the afternoon a pleasant one. The rest of the time, a strong wind brought vicious flies from the woods and we left with plenty of welts. They're not big, but they start to bite as soon as they land. Males beware: they love to get you where it hurts the most!

We brought along repellent with an extra-strong concentration of DEET and it made no difference. Applying heavy sunscreen worked for maybe a few minutes. The flies even followed us out to the ocean and surrounded our heads above the water. A number of people had tents with mosquito netting which I plan to buy for our next trip.

Pay attention to the signs in front of the bird nesting area at the south end of the beach (to the right as you face the ocean). You may not set up and sunbathe there, although walking is permitted. Rangers made frequent visits in their SUV's to enforce the rule.

The best thing to repel the flies is Skin So Soft - works like a charm.

I'm going to Gunnison on Saturday the 15th in the morning (7-8ish)& I've been away for a while. Does anyone know if it will be open ? If so I'd like to possibly meet some new people. It gets boring being solo & I'd feel safer about my stuff. Call me paranoid, since I'm pretty sure no one grab my keys or other stuff but why take the chance.
Thanks,
Jim

Sure Jim, they are open every day. Getting there early in the morning, as you plan to do, will ensure that you get a parking spot in the nearby lot. When nice weather is forecast for a Saturday or Sunday, the lot fills up quickly. On one occasion, I saw it nearly full at 8:15 AM.

Thanks nurserobin. Back when I was a horse owner, I sometimes used Skin So Soft on the horses to keep flies away. At the beach last weekend, I thought of this and wondered why I didn't come better prepared. We will have a bottle of it with us next time.

Just wondering if anyone knows where to purchase a season pass for Sandy Hook. I'm going this weekend, and want to get one. I'll be spending a week later this month there, and know it is cheaper for the pass than to pay $10.00 each day. Any help would be appreciated.

You can buy a season pass at the booths you pass through when you get onto Sandy Hook - the far left booth is for season pass holders to pass through and the others are where you can buy either season or day passes. Your best bet on these nice summer weekends is to get there before 9 a.m. for optimal parking. Enjoy! We'll probably be there this weekend as well..

Season passes are $50.00. That's a good deal if you plan to visit Sandy Hook more than 5 times during the summer. As nurserobin said, they are available at the same booths where day passes are sold.

Thanks nurserobin and nudeguy. I usually only go a few days out of the summer, but thought I would take a week this year. I just wanted to make sure the booths was where they were available. I agree, you can't beat the price if you go more than 5 times. I can never get there enough. lol Hope the weekend is a good one.

I am planning a drive in to the Jersey Shore this Saturday. This will be my first time at Sandy Hook,



Thanks for the warning about the flies and the advise about Skin So Soft.
My wife and I spent a day at Harlan Beach in Toronto Bay last year and the flies made her first CO experience horrible. I will buy a bottle of SSS before I leave WNY tonight. I hope to get to the beach early and sleep off the over night drive.

If we are all lucky, and I know I seldom am, the wind will be coming off the ocean and the flies won't be a problem. I'm heading down on Sunday, and will also get Skin So Soft, just to be safe. No need to let something like flies ruin a enjoyable time at Gunnison. Hope your day there is enjoyable, parscore, and anyone else heading over.

Thanks for the heads-up on those flies!
My wife and I plan on visiting Gunnison in a few days, so we'll make sure we have plenty of Skin-so-Soft with us.

Skin so Soft doesn't work for everyone. I use Deep Woods Off. It's my favorite summertime fragrance.

The flies weren't too bad on Sunday, the wind shifted from the north to the east, helping to cool it off a slight bit. I used Deep Woods Off also, as I couldn't find any Skin So Soft. I am wondering if if depends on the person that makes things work or not work when it comes to that. Anyway, the flies were minor compared to the sand. When it gets real hot, the sand is unbearable. I actually left earlier than planned, it was even tough to stand right by my towel for a minute. If there is one thing about Gunnison, it is the quality of the sand. Not the best, but who goes there for the sand? lol Good crowd there, also. By 10, the beach was mobbed, and they actually shut the whole park later on in the day. Traffic was backed up for miles on Rpute 36. Always remember to get there early, even week days. Why ever take a chance on not getting in. Well, one nude mans story for the weekend.
