I practically grew up in the woods. I went on my first camping trip when I was an infant and I've been in love with nature ever since!

One of a kind

I stayed here on a whim. I was alone, but I felt safe. The park staff was friendly and very helpful. The trails were wonderful. Definitely bring the bug spray. They don't allow swimming at the beach, but there are some lovely, free beaches just a few miles down the coast as well as some adorable shops, amazing donuts and a boardwalk. I saw an amazing Pitcher plant while I was there. The landscape is very unique and there are miles of trails throughout. I highly recommend this place to anyone who will listen!

Great for families

Though the campground was fairly full, it still felt calm and somewhat private. The wooded area were lovely. It felt safe and family friendly. The bathrooms were clean and the campsites were well kept. Over all, a great experience for those looking for something in the woods, but with a few comforts of civilization.

Nice place!

The campsites are lovely and the facilities are nice. The rangers are friendly and informative. The trails were gorgeous; winding through other - worldly landscapes, containing carnivorous plants. The only reason I'm giving this 4 stars instead of 5 is because there is no swimming allowed anywhere in the park. Drive for a few miles (like 5 mins), however, and you can swim to your heart's content!
