“Beautiful campgrounds”

Reviewed Oct 06, 2017

Overall Rating

There are four campgrounds here: Ridge, Birch, Lady's-slipper, and Angler's, as well as a group campsite.

I stayed at the Ridge Campground. Many of the spots have tight 90-degree back-ins and I'm not sure I could have managed backing in, but a few of the spots are better due to curves in the road. I stayed here in autumn on a Friday night during peak fall colors, and I had the entire place to myself somehow. Which is good because there's not much privacy between sites. Campground was completely quiet.

No electricity at any campground here. The generator policy is: they're allowed, but not at night.

There's not much hiking here, and there really should be. Most of the "trails" are actually roads that cars drive on. The only actual hike is out to the entrance to the bay (labeled Coast Guard lights at end of rock jetties on map), which is about 30 minutes round-trip from the picnic area.

Verizon was 1 bar LTE, good enough to watch Hulu in 720p. AT&T went in and out of "no service" but with an external antenna I did get a steady one bar LTE.
