  • This is a great campground. Heavily forested area makes each camp site feel pretty private. Rustic but suitable for tents, campers and RVs. Clean toilets, hot showers and a sink to wash dishes. There are even handicap accessible camp sites and showers. There is some traffic noise but it wasn't too bothersome. I would definitely recommend this campground.
  • Spacious, beautiful sites. Nice little camp store. My only complaints are about the shower house. Water temperature varied from freezing to scalding several times during my showers, usually turning cold right when I was shampooing my hair. The most annoying thing was discovering the "Closed for Cleaning" signs when walking up on the day we checked out. Why would you close the bathrooms an hour before checkout time?!!! Totally inconsiderate.
  • Secluded, quiet, park rangers don't bother you or check up on you. Overall great experience every time I go!
  • Very fun. Near ice cream place and beach. Camp here.
  • It's my local campground. Clean, well-maintained, free of trash.
