This was our first time at Castaway Resort. Actually, our first time camping. We are very happy with our choice. Bathrooms were close to all sites. There is water and electricity at all sites. The pool was great. There were a lot of families and everyone was quiet and respectful at night. We stayed in a tent on a larger RV site for just a few dollars more. It sure beat the $325 a night for a hotel at the ocean. They have a small beach right in the campground. It beat walking all the way through the sand to get to the water from the board walk. I could see someone staying there and never having to leave the resort. They have a deli, a store, laundry facilities, a small arcade, the beach, a pool, dog park, dog beach, a large playground, fishing, crabbing and they will even deliver wood to your site for a campfire. Even though I thought the resort itself was great, I do not recommend renting jet skis there. I made a reservation for a jet ski for an hour. My husband and I wanted to each go out individually for a half an hour, but when we got there they told us that we had to go out with an employee for the first 20 minutes and could not switch during our hour. They did not explain any of that when we made our reservation. All they wanted was my credit card number. When we decided to cancel, they demanded to charge my credit card FULL fee. They were very over priced to begin with at $80 per hour. They argued with me for at least 20 minutes before I gave up and just canceled my credit card so they could not charge me. Very unprofessional, but I would not let that stop me from enjoying the campground again.

This campground is as basic as it gets, besides just going out in the woods. It it mostly for scuba divers. This was a large rock quarry that has been filled with water for scuba diving. They have sunk a few neat things, like a bus, to make it interesting. I stayed here several times for my scuba certification. You basically just pitch a tent or pull your RV into the woods. No electric, no water besides at the main bath house. The biggest complaint is that in the middle of the night, there is a train that comes right through the middle of the campground, usually blaring its horn. It is very scary to be woken up by. The ground shakes and it feels like the train is going to run right over you. But, if you are there to scuba dive, you don't have much of a choice for places to stay.
