Overall Rating

I travelled here with a 35’ 5th wheel, long bed pickup and parked in site #41, an E/W, BI site for $53/night with all fees, county pass and taxes. Upon arrival I made the mistake of driving up to the side window of the park station. I didn’t see a sign saying to park first so I just proceeded. Mistake. They made me make a U-Turn around the back of the station which was tight quarters for my rig and go park back out front. Then I walked in and the guy handed me my tags. I stood there for a moment and asked if he needed anything else. He said no. So…why did I have to do the turn around which put my rig and some cars at risk? The roads are asphalt and the sites are a mixture of sand, grass & gravel. Road ok to navigate. The campground has two sections: sites closer to the entrance station are the partial hookups and the sites further away are full-hookups and are larger. Given that the sites in the near end are closer together and the road is narrow, I needed some back and forth to get in to mine. Luckily the site across the road was empty so it made it a bit easier. The sand toward the back on one side was pretty soft which was worrisome so I pulled up and put some boards under the wheels. I had to park the truck sideways at the end of the site. The sites are all totally open to the sun and there is always a breeze. The sites that are just E/W actually share a water spigot so you may be pretty far from a connection so bring a long hose. The bathhouse was clean but the showers didn’t have curtains between the shower and the bench so your stuff might get wet. Connectivity: 3 bars 5G with Verizon, 14.4 mbps download, was able to stream, no wifi and tenuous OTA connections. I would recommend paying for the full hookups just to get more room around the rig and have a bit more space to park your tow vehicle. The access to the National Seashore is nice and the Wertheim National Wildlife Refuge is close by where there are some wooded trails for hiking. I probably wouldn’t come back here because the vibe was more of a big party with lots of loud music being played and the music venue near the park was really loud as well. Not my scene. Otherwise, it was a fine beach campground if you don’t mind being in close quarters with your neighbors.
