  • Nice sites with hookups. The spaces are ample & great shade with trees. Convenient trash disposal. Bathrooms pretty clean - needs an upgrade. Shower nozzles are inefficient at best, spraying...

  • Very secluded beach, not many people there, and it's pretty large. There's an old fort that's worth taking a walk through. Small gift shop with ice cream and snacks nice to stop off at. There's a boardwalk that goes out pretty far, gets really windy there though. Feels like a place forgotten by time, not in a bad way though.
  • Such a beautiful and fun park where you can fish, bike, kayak, and enjoy the beach. The fort is also cool to check out. You can walk on the top and have a wonderful view of the beach. Only downside their bald park ranger guy is a DB. It's unfortunate they have someone like him working there.
