Compo Beach, a 29 acre park, is open year round with an extensive clean sandy beach bordering the Saugatuck River and fronting Long Island Sound. Included are a boardwalk, pavilion, concession stand (Joey’s By the Shore Restaurant), volleyball courts, a wooden playground, bathroom facilities with lockers, softball field, basketball courts, a skate park, open skate area, and one multi-purpose field. A permit is needed to use the marina and boat launch. The grade to the water is gradual with lake-like waves due to the Long Island Sound. The sand has a light mix of shells and pebbles with sparse bands of seaweed left behind from high-tide. Beach wheelchairs are available.
