  • The Walking Dunes trail is through a unique natural phenomenon. You get to walk on top of a forest and get amazing vistas. All the other trails in Hither Hills are great too.  more »
  • was a very nice campground. Lots of fisherman and surfers. only part I didn't like was I picked a site to far from the restrooms. other than that, a great stay  more »
  • I love that you can walk on these dunes and watch them cascade into the forest. This is a short but beautiful hike. There is a cranberry bog and wonderful water views. The trails are marked well also.  more »

  • Really a great park! New bathrooms are some of the nicest I have seen. Lots to do in surrounding areas. A fellow camper offered us some fresh seafood bass he had just caught!
  • Wow, I would wholeheartedly agree about the rude service, and I didn't even stay there overnight! I called to get clarification on the seven-day minimum, since I would only be in town one night for a wake/funeral (and during Labor Day weekend, last-minute hotels are nearly impossible). The woman who answered the phone couldn't have been less helpful or more rude. And I'm not easily offended! Can't speak for the accommodations, and likely will never be able to.
  • Just reviewing the beach itself. Clean beach and clean facilities. Has a private feel to it. The parking is small ... So plan on arriving early or late in peak season. Or else join the others parking on the main road and walking in.
  • This is a great place for camping. You get a both amazing sunset and sunrise views. The beach is beautiful! A hidden gem!
  • Perfect. Great getaway!
