  • A totally beautiful park, not too remote-feeling with lots of infrastructure: roads, managed and raked beaches, snack bars, etc. It was a bit loud from other campers at night, but nothing egregious. There were a lot of rules to follow that we butted up against—for example we weren’t allowed to walk on the beach in the morning before the lifeguards were there. If you’re good at following all the rules you probably won’t mind!
  • White loop trail was great! Not too difficult to follow with a map, excellent views and water. Mostly empty of other people going up, starting on the white trail, met lots of people coming down though. Also not much parking and had to park on the road. 10/10 recommend
