We booked this campsite because all the other campsites around us were full but we were surprised at how great it turned out. We had so much fun here. It was a great price and the area was great. We camped for the night and getting to the campsite was easy. We did wish we had reserved one of the shadier sites. The campsites on the same side as the bathroom have less shade and less privacy but a little more space. The bathhouse was pretty clean for a park bathroom. It did not smell and the showers get hot if you turn them the right way (left). There are some bugs but there's lots of bugs everywhere. We will definitely come back because all we had time to do was swim. The water was nice and a pretty large swimming area with not too many people.
This was a small little park with nicely spaced spaces some open grass some shaded .Do you know if for some bigger rigs but no hookup. Restrooms are a little older but they function you were clean. Large shallow lake nearby for canoes and kayaks and fishing. Not too far from the ocean for day trips. $ 26 For my truck camper. Ranger was very nice.
