Nice campground, clean restrooms, lots of shade. Not ideal for trailers or Rv's, spaces are tight and roads are narrow. There are only a handful of sites that are RV friendly space wise. Mainly a tent campground.

My sons absolutely love this campground. Beach and hiking are both accessible, but really who are we kidding it all about the beach.... My sons are now 16, 12 and 10 and they all want to come back. The camp hosts are super friendly and helped us get our fire going... First

Sunset glory!
The check in time is 2:00 but it is a very busy place. It really depends on the day you are camping. If you are checking in on Friday or Saturday then line up early and talk with the Rangers

There is a fire ring at each site, which has a grill covering about 1/3 of the ring - works well for cooking and/or you can also bring a gas camp stove. (We use both) You do need to bring your own wood (if a Camp Host is present, you can buy wood onsite from them, but they may not be there - and it's cheaper to buy it at the grocery store). Enjoy - we love it there!
