Amazing views right from your tent!

We camped here off and on for a couple weeks.  We absolutely LOVED that we could camp as close to the ocean as we were able to, especially on such a beautiful bay.  This was also a wonderful bay to swim in.  Most of the cleared tent spaces also have a large picnic table nearby to use.  We were advised to pull our tent back for 1 night when the ocean levels were supposed to be extra high.  If you're friendly with the locals (who are friendly and pretty much live in the park) they may help you out with info and advice. The roosters were louder and started earlier here that any other place we stayed.  We loved them but others may find this annoying.  Showers were outdoors and semi-private.  We recommend having someone guard the entrance if you're at all worried about it.  We camped here at the end of December / beginning of January when the weather is extremely unpredictable.  It was QUITE an adventure to say the least - but we LOVE a Great adventure! Make sure your tent is VERY wind & water proof.  And know that if you do want the view right from your tent, you will have to carry your gear for a couple minutes since you can't drive right up to where you'll set up your tent.  

Make sure you get your camping permit well ahead of your trip!!!
