Living Forest Campground was a huge disappointment to our family. The view of the ocean is beautiful, but the sites are small and under harsh patrol of the security. There is a set bedtime at this campground, so if you stay up past 11:00 pm at night you will be harassed until you put your fire out and go to bed. There is absolutely no noise after 11:00 pm. We were approached rather rudely by a man telling us to quiet down when were just calmly talking in our site. After that we all were made to feel uncomfortable and unwelcome. These campsites were insanely over priced and the fact they think they can tell a bunch of adults when they should go to bed is ridiculous to me. The firewood we got was soaking wet and the wifi did not work at all. All in all a really bad time. I will never be going there again and I will never recommend it to anyone.
