Had a really good time camping here and looking for shark teeth. We loved that you had a choice of the beach or the pool. We will be going back each year.

My family and I have been coming here for years. Absolutley the place! We have stayed in the cabins and also set up tents. We love to search for sharks teeth and use the boat launch for our kayaks. Beautiful views.

We were in campground A. it was quiet and clean. We walked around to campground B, and it was not as quiet. We walked to the beach -- don't do that if you're older or have heart problems. It's a steep walk back. Many people...More
