This was our first time camping at Adventure Bound but not the first time camping on the Cape. Adventure Bound was nicely located near places we wanted to see and beaches we anted to visit.
I'm not sure why people complain about paying for the showers. I thought that $0.50 was very reasonable for the time allowed. Actually, we paid $2 for less time when camping on Mt Desert Island in Maine. There was plenty of hot water here. But, there seemed to be a need for more shower stalls. In one men's room there were only two. Another men's bathroom had 4 but 2 were out of order. I didn't look at any more so I'm not sure how many other stalls there are. We were pleased to noticed that the bathrooms were cleaned on a regular basis (why are people such slobs?)
The office staff was friendly and efficient. We got checked in quickly and our site was ready with the firepit in place. One thing about the firepits: while I don't mind paying for the shower, it seems to me that firepits could be on all the primitive sites instead of having to rent one for $5/night. The $40/night for a just primitive tent site was a bit high without the additional charge for a fire pit. If charging to rent a fire pit, why not charge to rent the picnic table? And they want you to buy wood that they sell. You'd think they'd sell more wood if the firepits were on each site.
We didn't buy anything at the camp store - except wood which was just over $6/bundle
Access to Coastguard Beach is a pleasant walk through the woods. It can be biked but a baby stroller might be difficult because of the sand. I measured the walk with my GPS as 1.18 miles from our campsite.
Campsites were a bit closer together than some places we've stayed. The RVs are really packed in tight. Because of this, we thought that the camp would be noisier than it was - especially with all the kids biking and riding the rented pedal carts. But, where we were in the primitive tent sites, things quieted down as it began to get dark. Maybe it was louder near the office and the WIFI.
Overall, it was good. We'd stay here again unless we were to find a less expensive similar location. I think next time we'll ask for primitive sites further in the back.
