Overall very enjoyable stay. The park is as stated the "quiet side" of the park. The rangers were very friendly and will sell you your park pass right at the station. Our site was loop a site 23 for 8 days. We were in pop up camper and were happy with our choice. We made our reservation a early as... More

We are novice tent campers when it comes to camping in the woods, but we had a marvelous time at Seawall. The only wildlife we saw were small red squirrels that kept their distance, which was just fine in our opinion! We did have a problem with mosquitoes the first night we were there, but the rest of the week... More

We liked this park, and the price can't be beat, but there were a few things that made camping there difficult for us. For one, the wood we bought in the area was damp, and the fog there kept it damp, so building fires took a long time. There were no showers, but the bath houses were clean. We had... More

I had "tent only non-electric" site 35 in the A-loop. I stayed for 3 nights, but slept in my car instead of my tent, because it was forecast to rain later in the night I arrived(it did), and rain the morning I was to leave(it did), and I would have no place to put my tent up to dry in... More

Trust what you read in the other reviews: the campground is beautiful, quiet, well-maintained (spotless facilities!), and in a great location just a short walk from the ocean. To add a note on the park ranger staff: my wife and I spent two nights at Seawall, and arriving home afterwards we couldn't find her engagement ring. We were afraid it... More

I stayed at this camp ground while visiting the National Park and was generally very impressed. The staff were friendly, the bathrooms were clean, and the campsites weren't right on top of one another (always a plus!). It would have been nice to have a shower on site but for the price of $14 a night it really can't be... More

If you are looking for amenities (hookups), this is not the campground for you. If you are looking for a rustic setting, Seawall is a beautiful place. Sites are somewhat private and spacious with lots of trees and shrub between sites. The bathrooms are flush toilets, very clean and looked like they had recently been remodeled. Fresh water and dump... More

We stayed in B20. Smaller site, but well laid out. If you have a large family tent, consider a slightly larger site. Great picnic options down at the beach area. Much less travelled part of the park, which is particularly nice on a major holiday weekend.

This campground was by far one of the most beautiful places I have camped. The hike in lots are incredible and easily accessible. Bathrooms were very clean and the park rangers were funny and full of advice.

Stayed for six nights in Aug. Site D87. A great location on the quieter side of the park. All sites come with pad, picnic table, and fire pit or BBQ grill. Heavily wooded and beautiful. Like all the Seawall sites, the pad is gravel. Bring a heavy weight ground tarp to protect your tent as well as sleeping pads or... More
