As of July 26, 2017 - Umbrella Policy Announcement: 

We are immediately suspending enforcement of the current rule forbidding umbrellas at Eichler's Cove Beach, but would ask that you exercise good judgement in your use of such umbrellas, particularly with regard to securing them. Umbrellas and baby tents must be anchored to prevent uncontrolled movement in good weather and closing them when breezy conditions are anticipated.
Finally, please note that we will continue to forbid the use of the canopy-type shade structures (most commonly 10’ by 10’ or larger) at least for the remainder of this season.
Thank you for your patience, and enjoy the rest of your summer!
