The youth camp ground is probably one of the nicest places we have ever camped. Grassy area for tents. Pavilion with picnic tables. Bath house with outside showers. Right next to shallow water for kids to swim and play in. We will definitely be back.

An absolutely gorgeous reservation. Naval live oak trees are one of the most beautiful trees. The whole place has been kept in it's natural state.
