I haven't camped for years and we decided to give it a whirl, albeit in a tent. :) I felt the showers were nice, clean, and available. I didn't have to wait to use them at all. The campground itself is very clean as are the restrooms. We did not utilize the pool as it was unseasonably cool. The miniature golf was a bit rudimentary, but I'm sure the little ones enjoy it. The store has lots to offer and the prices are reasonable. The lots are smaller, but we didn't need the space others seem to complain about. Yes, the beach is rocky to no fault of the campground. If you've ever visited up north, specifically that area, that's what you expect. The views are breathtaking. Now the reasons I would rate this as average is simply because I did not like the oil pans that the campground gives you for free to use. It wasn't conducive to cooking and something I didn't expect at all. They are small. They clean one of the bathrooms at peak times when people actually use them. I'm not talking about the showers, but the bathrooms themselves. I'm sure there is a reason, but I had to go and didn't want to use the rustic ones and the wait was a bit long . One other thing... the rooster was a pest. I'm not sure who owns the rooster or where the thing lived, but hearing it crow BEFORE dawn and continuously thereafter was not ideal. I think what would make this a 5 star is bigger fire rings, make a few sites bigger, clean the bathrooms at off-peak times, and dispose of the rooster. :) Sorry, PETA fans...
