The sites were level and the campground was very clean. Sites were very close together, but not too crowded. We were extremely disappointed in the beach area. The website is misleading. The park is not on the gulf, so the water was dark and murky. It was more like a pond than the ocean. The beach area itself was VERY small and rocky and did not allow much room for the kids to play safely. They have created a separate raised sand platform for beach chairs and sunning, but even that only allows space for 4-5 families at a time. Although the staff was pleasant, a previous post mentioned the mowing right next to the campers. This did happen, and we were a bit shocked at the carelessness. We were outside grilling and actually had to move out of the way as the mower zipped in between the camp sites. I know that the grounds have to be kept, but I would think the best time to accomplish this would be between checkout-checkin when spots are vacant. Overall, this is not a campground that is worth the trip for us to visit again.

We LOVED camping here! The campground itself does have a couple of negatives in that some of the sites are very close together and sometimes the traffic can be a little too much in some of the loop areas. However, we were amazed at the level of service by the staff. One of the staff members showed us to our site and helped us to get set up. The campground actually has a garbage pickup each morning, where you can place the bag at the edge of your site and someone will take care of it for you, which we had never seen at any other campground. We had to report a bees nest near our camper, and someone was there within 10 minutes to take care of it. The playground for the kids was very well kept and we felt safe allowing the kids to play near the creek and around the campsites. Although we weren't able to attend, we were also told that the campground organizes a family outdoor movie night on the weekends, so the staff interacts with visitors on several levels. Overall, this was one of the best campgrounds we have visited so far, and we definitely plan to return!
