This beautiful campground is only 30 mins from my house in the city but it feels like a distant place miles away in the country. The oceanfront sites are beautiful with great views of the bay. The farm is fun to explore with kids and the employees are always very friendly and accommodating.
On my last couple of camping trips, however, I've been kind of disappointed by the condition of some of the sites and general maintenance of the grounds. For $40 a night, I would expect the sites to be in better condition. Also, both of my last two trips have been ruined by rowdy campers drinking all night not obeying the quiet time of 10-7 which is a real turn-off when camping with young kids. I wish the staff would do more to enforce the quiet time hours.
