  • Although I only stayed in the primitive camping area, I was fully impressed with this campground. There are a number of wonderful trails and boardwalks offering plenty of opportunities to experience nature or watch birds. Plenty of beachfront to enjoy and watch the sun rise and the waves roll in. The primitive sites are well organized, clean, have fire rings, bear boxes and lantern stands and are a very short walk to a restroom and running water. There is a covered pavilion just outside for picnics or to get out of the sun. I will return to continue exploring this little gem.
  • A beautiful, well maintained park. Nice beach access, clean restrooms, gift shop and plentiful walking trails. The campground is also very nice and within easy access to the beach. I would highly recommend a trip to this park if you are in the area!
