“Great Tidal Pools”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

We went to Tongue Point at low tide and it was definitely worth the drive. Kids loved seeing all the crabs, starfish, anemones, and much more.

“Very Scenic and Great Tide Pools”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

Salt Creek is a beautiful beach and the tide pools were very fun for our entire family. There were little crabs that were small enough to pick up all of the place. We also saw a large jellyfish in the shallow water to the edge of the tide pool area and some tiny crabs were grabbing its tentacles and gradually pulling it in. It was a discovery channel type experience. Amazing.

“Beautiful rocky beach”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

Tide pools, water spouts, deer, crashing waves, old bunkers, super beach for rocky beach lovers! We didn't see much of the tide pools, since the tide was coming in, but visually stunning beach area! Enjoyed it immensely!

“Good RV location, watch the tides.”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Tidepools were fun to see and explore. Not much else to do, especially if you visit during high tide. Great location for RV campers.

“Beautiful landscape, great campground”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

The Area is so beautiful, nice views and lovely campsites.

The campsites were pretty big and private. The washrooms close and clean. We had nice views from our site along the coast over the sea. We really enjoyed it.
