We stayed 2 nights in tent site #11. There is a steep hill that descends into a dense marsh, which I was a little nervous about with 3 little kids, but it wasn't a problem. I was worried about the tar and wind that most reviewers complain about, but we must have it a good weekend, because there was NONE of EITHER. My only complaints are that the marsh stunk a bit like sewer, and the frogs were LOUD at night.
The campsite was spacious (could have easily fit a second tent!) and clean. Our neighbors were friendly, the bathrooms & showers & playground were clean. The beach is a short walk away, and wasn't crowded at all. It was early spring, so we had COLD nights and some drizzle (anything you leave outside overnight will be SOAKED in the morning).
Well worth the drive, and better than any hotel! Can't wait to go back!
