This place pretty awesome for RV camping right off the beach. Location we have was in a optimal spot for overlooking the ocean and catching Good sunset. Easy access to the beach. Only down side was we were right across from the camp host and they were a grumpy couple that came of as very Uppity. He made a few negative remarks about my older truck and came over more than a few times to make sure we understood the rules. Other than that this place was awesome I would recommend this anybody looking to do some beach camping either for tent or RV. Book well ahead of time as the spaces fill up quick .

Easily one of my favorite places to camp and relax by the ocean. I’ve been at least 4 times now and every time has been a good experience. Neighbors are always kind and respectful. I also enjoy speaking with the staff. They are all very courteous and easy to talk to.

Fun in the sun. Beach has a lot of rocks but you can walk a bit and find some cool spots. Camp grounds are kept clean and have plenty of amenities fire pits, bench, showers, local mart has everything you need for camping here. Took my kids and we had a blast. Make sure to reserve a spot months in advance.

Lovely place, I'm just kinda upset they didn't allow dogs on the beach. They have good reason but I was looking forward to seeing how my dog reacted to the beach for the first time. Oh well.

Amazing. About 2/3 full when we slipped through the North Pedestrian gate and rode a couple miles on 15mph camp roads above the beach. Wonderful, old, twisted shrubbery between camp slots. Each has a picnic table overlooking the beach and restrooms with showers nearby. Even a camp store in the middle!
