Lovely beach area at Seaforth Beach. We took the trail-it’s not a level or smooth trail, so be aware. We loved it, but it wouldn’t be ideal for older people or strollers or anything like that... more »
Poplar Point campground is fantastic. This was our second time here. We have found that Loop E has some of the most scenic, enjoyable sites but they are walk up only so it is first come, first serve. Both times we have been here we spent Friday night at a different site, and then found people leaving Loop E on Saturday morning and were able to move into their site. E50 is a favorite with great water access and perfect launches for kayaks and paddle boards. The park also offers a military discount so for $20 a night (non-electric) this place is tough to beat!
Great place to go with the family. It's convenient and very well kept. The sites and facilities are kept clean. Cleanest bathrooms I've ever seen camping! Can't wait to go back!
