We loved our first group camping trip here and our only complaint was it rained for most of our trip,but,nothing to do with the park. It was newly renovated and lots of services including a playground, nature house, naturalist and the washrooms. The beach is awesome and our visitors loved it!! Our location was excellent as it was right across... More

Great beach and awesome ocean side bike/walking path great for getting out and getting some exercise. Camping is supposed to be awesome but location to the beach and fun for kids is already an attraction.

My Wife and I have just returned from another wonderful trip to Rathtrevor [Aug 6-8]. We were on site # 60. No nabors to the rear and privacy from the sides. Not that we are anti social, but it is nice to have a buffer between sites. We had enough room for 2 visiting cars and my camper van. It... More

My family and I have been visiting this beautiful beach for the past 65 years. The tide coming in over sun heated sand makes for nice, warm, safe ocean swimming. The water is shallow enough for small children to play safely for hours. Bring their buckets & spades! Lots of sand for digging and building sand castles. We have camped... More

Love Rathtrevor Beach especially when the tide is out. Miles and miles of awesome sandcastle sand. Lots of wonderful creatures to discover.

This beach is clean, plenty of nature walks and an amazing beach for kids and grown ups too. When the tide is out you can walk forever on the sandy beach.

Amazing shallow beach; great for kids! Walk out for over a mile at low tide; easy swimming at high tide. :)

We have stayed at Rathtrevor many times and enjoy it with each visit. The campground is large, many campsites, but hard to get into in the summer as it can all be reserved ahead of time. We love the overflow camp sites. It is sunnier in them and you are very close to the beach. In the summer the tide... More

You could not design a more kid friendly beach. Warm water, loads of small tidal pools, crabs and shallow water that goes on for miles. Kids just love this beach.

We met relatives at the beach and used one of the covered picnic areas (reserved in advance). The playground area for children, and the beach for exploring and swimming made for a great place to gather. The tide goes way out, so it is a long walk to the water.
