  • Fun beach. Tide pools were awesome with large star fish and crabs (be respectful, though). Sunset would've only been more romantic if I was with my wife rather than brother in law, but it was still special for us. We made it work. Cool, cool place. If you're driving through stop on by. There was a nearby campground that looked really cool/ fun that I will keep in mind for future trips.
  • This is one busy park and sites are most private I have ever stayed at. Busy place due to LOCATION! Pacific ocean and nestled on the coast is the place to be. Privacy for camp sites provided by mother nature. Natural hedges between the narrow sites make them very private. Some sites are terraced to allow best view. Real clean facilities and in top condition.
  • Wild and beautiful place to visit. We had a great time there and had a picnic there as well. The weather was perfect. The air and surroundings was wonderful. We will be back someday.
  • Nice sites and recently updated bathrooms. The beach and views are spectacular and maybe the best park on the coast. Can be foggy in the morning and we had several skunks in our site every night but other than that it is hard to beat.
  • We loved this place! It is a great place to walk along the beach or go tide pooling. We saw 15 star fish while tide pooling! We also saw a seagull fighting a crab. This was our favorite tide pool spot!
