My family visited this park/campsite last August and LOVED it! We stayed on sites 160 & 162. We had 3 families with a total of 6 adults and 5 kids. We had plenty room but might stretch out to 3 sites next year. Our sites were decent in size and shady as the map explained. Although i may have to argue "level". We parked our pop-up camper all right, but there were a few areas that were completly useless due to a cluster of trees or unlevel ground.
Just a warning - you can only have 2 motor vehicles parked on a campsite at any given time. We did have to shuffle cars a few times.
Overall, It was very quiet most of the time and at night there were NO CRITTERS! We couldn't believe it! From prior stays at other camp grounds we were planning to lock up every crumb with locks and chains but there was nothing! There was still plenty of wildlife in the area. Our kids hunted for bugs, saw chipmonks and squirrels. The south side (side we stayed on) seemed to be much quieter than the north side. There was a movie playing Friday and Saturday night near the entrance.
Facilities are clean. The only issue I came across was in the bathrooms, there are plugs for hair dryers/irons etc but they are direcly next to the wet sinks with no where to set the blow dryer. Seems like an electrical nightmare waiting to happen. Luckily I like to camp without these things, but I saw a few other people struggling. The bathrooms didnt seem to smell either so i wouldnt hesitate to have a spot closer to the bathrooms, although its not a long walk at all from our sites. There was a short path between a few sites so you could easily cut through to the bathrooms and not disturb other campers on thier sites.
The walk to the beach was not very long. We had a couple babies in strollers in our group - I dont reccommend taking the footbridge. Dodging traffic is faster and there isnt too much traffic on that road anyway. Just be careful because when there is, they are going very fast! :)
On to the beach - it was beautiful. Very clean and not crowded at all. The tide was pretty low when we went so there was a nice sand bar the little kids could play in the water and not have to worry about waves knocking them over. I did not venture into the bathrooms at the beach but the area seemed pretty clean for a state park.
