First of all, the 22 mile drive from Hwy 101 to this place is a real nail biter, especially pulling a 35 foot trailer. This town is a fishing village and if you don't fish ( we didn't) there is nothing to do. Campground is dismal as there are really no designated sites. No trees. We did not use the facilities except laundry and the washer and dryer were very old and rusty. Weather cold and foggy. We planned on staying for 6 nights but left after 3. Never again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The road in and out is a real tricky one, slow and easy. You're dropping to sea level here folks; those are mountains you came from! This is as rugged a get-away-from-it-all campground as you will find with accessability. A gorgeous BLACK SAND beach, nice owner, great fishing and tremendous beach combing and birding. Stayed a week and HAD to leave but WILL return. If you are into remote beaches, THIS IS IT and fairly easy to get to. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
If you can traverse the steep and harrowing road to Shelter Cove, the reward is the nearly 180* view of the Pacific Ocean from the RV park. The owner and hosts were friendly and accommodating, generous with firewood, and entertained us with fishing stories and the local color. Located next to the airstrip, the view is unobstructed and only occasionally interrupted by small aircraft. We saw whales spouting from our campsite! The lighthouse park and the Shelter Cove black-sand beach are short walks from the park. The park includes an on-site deli and store with great fish and chips and cinnamon rolls. The laundry room could use a new washer/dryer as the salt air has taken its toll on the old appliances. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
