Wagener County Park - Beware!

Wagener County Park was not very crowded and the view from the shoreline was beautiful but there is a problem with this park, it is a health hazard for anyone camping there and using the beach.  There were children dressed in swimsuits at the campsite and I don't know how it could be enjoyable when you have to watch every step you take.  The beach is not a clean beach; there were animal feces all over the sand. It is not a bathing beach; it doesn't take a rocket scientist to know the beach sand contains more fecal bacteria than seawater.  I don't like it when people walk their dogs at the beaches in St. Augustine.  Even if the owners clean up after the dogs, it still contaminates the sand.  I hate to ruin someone's visit to the beach this weekend but be warned.  Multiple scientific tests have detected high levels of fecal bacterial in sand.  Beach authorities routinely monitor beach water for high levels of bacterial but they don't monitor the sand so sun bathers beware!
