best campground ever!

ThisCampground is by far our favorite. We had a nice level back in sight with some shade from palm trees. This site had a marsh in the background and was steps from the beach. This campground has two loops. We have only stayed in the beach loop. If you stay in the Live Oak Loop it would be a drive to the beach. It is not a walkable distance. Our site was Sandy but packed down and easy to park and back into.We had hook ups for electric and water but had to stop at the dump station down the road for sewer. The water is potable but salty so they recommend a filter or bringing drinking water. We ended up bringing our own drinking water because it was salty even with the water filter. They do sell firewood at the campground for seven dollars a bundle and we got ours for about five dollars a bundle at the Bilo across the street. The Bilo has just about everything you could need for groceries. Lines were long but prices were about average. The price for this campground is a littlemoreThan most but worth it to be right on the beach. Sites fill up quickly so definitely book ahead for this one. We happen to get a last-minute cancellation and felt so lucky. This was an amazing trip and I hope we can stay longer next time. It was relatively quiet, there are areas for kids to ride bikes. No pool or play ground but who needs that with the beach right there. This was a very dog friendly beach and Campground.

Wooded, relaxing, not so quiet

We spent a pleasant, if muddy, weekend at this campground recently. Sites were not all level. This applied more to be pulled through site we were on, 425, then some of the more level back in sites that were smaller. Our pull through site was quite large. It backed up to the river which was about a two minute walk through the woods away. It was a rainy weekend but we had a great time at the spa. We enjoyed both massages and one of their signature soaks in their mineral tubs. These tubs are private and are filled with heated water from a volcanic fault line. It was great for taking off the damp chill of a Rainy camping weekend. One thing we did not see mentioned in reviews when we were booking was the fact that a train runs directly against the campground. We watched it from the playground. Sidenote, the playground is quite small, see photos. The train was charming the first few times we saw at pier But it was not so great in the middle of the night running about every three hours.
