“been going here for 50 + years”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2014

great camping - lots of sites, including sites for people with disabilities - washrooms (including showers), water, wood. The whole campsite is very well taken care of (on site parks people) who monitor the whole site. Two minute walk to the beach (ocean), which has a grassy area and a large covered area, both with lots of picnic tables and of course a great beach with lots of adventurous fun for kids (i know, i used to go there as a kid - it was where our family went for a two week vacation every year). not too far away (10 minute drive, or a 20 minute bike ride) there is a great local grocery store, liquor store, medical clinic with pharmacy and coffee/pizza place. also close by another great beach - Saratoga - lots of sand! the camping fills up quickly and in advance (popular place). Also had day parking if you don't plan to camp. lots of fun, laughter and happiness here!

“Very nice walkway by the Ocean”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2013

Walked all the way to the river mouth, was surprised to see a large area of the beach has nice sand. Popular even in November, definitely worth a return, one of the nicest beaches in the area.

“Miracle Beach - calming and refreshing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

A stop here is well worth the time. Off season is quiet and the weather is still nice in the fall (overcast but only threatening to rain).

“Skimmin'”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

Hey it's a pretty park. I am there for the skim boarding so I watch the tide chart and find a good stretch of sand as the tide recedes. The interpretive centre has an eagle and cougar and stuff. No I mean they are stuffed. Just as well. A little buddy of mine got wrestled to the ground by a cougar and lived to tell about it. He heads into the centre, does a double take at the cougar, smiles checks out the hands-on displays and then heads over to the little shop to get himself a book and a cool drink. It works.
