We had a great week at this park. The park is small with just a few spots. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the onsite bathroom was clean. Because of the closure to day visitors, we had a large section of the beach to ourselves. It is a short walk across the pavilion to the beach. We stayed in our RV, and though the spots are small, we spent most of the time at the beach or in the bay right across the highway.

The beach was fairly clean and not over populated because of the pandemic. We were able to find a spot e reasonable distance from other people. The air Quality was terrible because of the African dust and who knows what other undesirables in the air. The price every day of $14 with $2 refundable if you return your trash bag upon leaving is ridiculous. Us senior citizens tax dollars paid for all this and the fee is a rip off. There should be something like a $10 annual pass for senior citizens.

Beach access is nice. Different accesses are fee and another is free. If you’re not in a 4WD or AWD; you just need to be aware of loose sand areas. Nice to be away from the crowds. Nice beaches. Great for a long walk or just lounging.

Not suited for campers. Awkwardly narrow entrance with sharp curves is difficult to navigate with a dually truck - nearly impossible when towing a 40’ 5th wheel. I’d say it was the worst entrance we’ve ever tried to get into with our rig and we’ve been camping for over 30 years. Only appropriate for very small campers. Larger than anything 24ft? Stay far away. Once a small miracle helped us enter the park, we found what was basically a slab of uneven blacktop With campers parked next to each other like a dealership. I understand that this is premium property, but the ability to sneeze without bumping into our neighbors would’ve been appreciated. The worst part: the hookups. The sewage connections were not only obnoxiously far from our rig, they were also about 6-8 inches higher than the dump on the RV. Never seen a place where crap flows uphill, but I guess whoever designed the park was expecting that physics would not be an issue. This (small?) miscalculation made it impossible to dump with a soft pipe. So, some tenants simply let their sewage run into the ditch behind the RV park. I saw 3-4 rats every morning - so if you’re looking for wildlife you should definitely choose Andy Bowie.

Wasted my 10$ for this park. I mean there is nothing special in this park, there are so many things to do near by
