We have taken our RV here several times and love how close it is to the ocean. The park is clean and well run and there are many things to do at the park and the surrounding areas.

If we're all lucky, it will stay that way. Marsh, beach, wetlands, historical artifacts, wildlife of all types. Still mostly hidden away from view and passing motorists. Last visited on a cool, drissly, wet, October day, but it was nevertheless beautiful in its iconic austerity....More

Really great marsh with good piers and signage. Bike and hike friendly. Convenient and clean restrooms. We didn't use the camping area, but the hookups and shower houses appeared to be in great shape and were nicely situated.
