Red River Beach, also known as Uncle Venies’ Beach, is a mid-sized beach. The beach area is only steps away from parking. Numerous stone jetties separate the beach areas creating a unique landscape which never seems to get overcrowded. The slope to the water is mild with wave size varying from small to mid-sized with warmer water for the New England area. Sand has a light mix of debris throughout; near the water’s edge thick bands of shells and rocks can make entry into the water uncomfortable in areas near jetties. Beach wheelchairs are available.
