The staff was so friendly and pleasant. The woman who ran the camp store made a great dark roast coffee and talked to you like she knew you forever. The sites were a beautiful, forest like setting. The pine needles collect water from the ocean mist that sprays, so the are always dripping faint little drops of water...very unique!
The showers are decent, the ones on the ends by the exit doors in the woman's room have a real shower head which is nice. The bathrooms can attract quite a few bugs but they are clean otherwise. The staff takes great care of the facilities overall.
There is a trail to the beach which helps avoid hefty beach fees which is nice but stay on the trails and be WATCH THE POISON IVY.
Head of the Meadow beach is amazing. There is a unique water and sand bar that run just before you get to the real ocean. Go early in the morning while its low tide to easily cross or you may be swimming across. During high tide you can float down this water bar as we did, like a lazy river! There were so many seal sightings while swimming I lost count. Be careful though, seals are shark food!
My family and I stayed a week and I just didn't feel like it was long enough!! This was a very special place and I'm so glad it was our selected vacation spot this year!
