Nice paved trailer sites, miles of paved campground loops, and paved trails and roads to the beach for the kids to ride bikes. Bathrooms and showers were clean and well maintained. Also offered daily ranger-led nature programs for the kids.

South Beach was our destination for a holiday planned five months ago. The park was clean and well laid out. I would suggest booking in one of the loops as all traffic must drive along the main road to access each of the loops. We...More
