I’ve stayed at a number of campgrounds in the US and Canada, and this is easily one of the best.
Location, location, location the campsites are steps from the beach and you can hear the ocean and feel the breeze even while sitting under your awning.
Last year’s hurricane = brand new facilities this year.
Spotless bathrooms and magnificent pool
Wonderful friendly staff.
Family style bathrooms provide a much better experience than typical bathhouse (much more private).
VERY poor internet access. Even when the campground was empty, performance was painfully slow and unusable at many times. I can’t imagine that it is at all effective when there are more users logged in. Plan on checking your e-mails elsewhere.
Family style bathrooms are more prone to be dirty (guest 1 takes a shower and gets water on the floor; guest 2 walks in with sand on their feet/shoes; guest 3 gets a muddy floor). This isn’t a comment on how well the staff cleans/maintains the restrooms, because they do a great job – it literally can get ugly after a couple of guests, so shower early and be guest 1.
If you want a fire, get ready to fork over some bucks. You have to rent a fire ring at $9+ per day. One night’s fire ring and one bunch of wood was over $17. That makes for some expensive s’mores.
