Great Beach Camping!

We loved the Bay Side loops at Assateague. It was a little quieter and with more spacious sites, when compared to the beach sites. Awesome place to camp and enjoy the beach and nature.

First to Review
High Elevation, Wooded Campdround Near Capitol Reef

We were happy we stayed here over the Fruita Campground in Capitol Reef. It was cooler being at a high elevation, and way less crowded.

Sites were in good shape and flush toilets were clean.

Awesome Spot Deep In Arches

One of the best campgrounds we have ever stayed at. Sites in the back loop were largest, and most secluded. Campground had flush toilets, and sinks, but no showers.

There are nice hikes right from the campground.

Well run campground on an awesome beach, but privacy is limited.

Hither Hills campground is clean, well run and is just one dune away from an incredible stretch of beach. It's also conveniently located to town, Montauk Point and other nearby parks with great views and some cool hikes. The campground has plenty of clean bathrooms, with flush toilets, sinks and showers. There is also a general store that sells most of the necessities, if you run out of something.

The campground is flat and has little shrubbery, and with the crowds that it attracts the sites have very limited privacy. You don't really get the sense of relaxing in nature when you are at your site. However, in a minute you can walk over the dunes and see all the nature you want! Camping here is a great way to spend some time at an awesome beach.

Large Private Lakeside Sites

We recently stayed at site 3 at the campground at High Point State Park in NJ. It was our first time there, and we were surprised at how nice it was.

There are about 40 to 50 sites around Sawmill Lake. Many of these sites , like ours, are walk in sites (about a 50 yard walk) that sit lakeside. The sites were large and spread out, and we felt like we had a good amount of privacy.

Our site had a picnic table, and a fire ring with a cooking grate. Although, we didn't have one, we saw some sites had tent platforms

There are a few sites that sit higher up, and further from the lake, for RV and or car campers not looking to walk to there site. These had less privacy because they sit close to the road.

The bathrooms with flush toilets were ok when we were there. There are water spigots around the campground, but there are no showers or sinks. It's noted that there is no camp store at the campground, and the closest grocery was about 1/2 hour away, so come prepared. They did sell firewood at the park headquarters , which is about 10 minutes away from the campground.

It was pretty buggy (including ticks), so don't forget your deep woods.
