  • Nice new looking very clean restroom and showers. Stayed Thursday night April 7th 2022. Good water pressure at my campsite for cleaning things. Everyone has their own water source. I wish there were some walking trails but I did walk from my campsite to the Bay and walk along the bank. Tie your shoelaces tight cause you will walk through some deep mud to get to the bank. You can also walk down the road a little ways and there is access to the Bay so you don't have to walk through the mud. It was a beautiful walk and beautiful sunrise. Be sure and get the combination to the lock if you wanna leave b4 7 o'clock in the morning when they open the gate. I got a reservation online and when I got here there was no one manning the entrance so I drove on in.
  • The last time I was here I walked the clapper rail trail. This is a nice flat path over mostly marsh and some boardwalks. There are large platforms to bring you up higher for some nice views. Wear shoes that can get muddy with good grips. If it has been rainy prior to your walk, expect mud! If the weather has been dry it will be less so.
