Was concerned initially about booking here, because of reviews, but we just stayed here for 5 nights, including a move of campsite because we stayed an extra night and we had a wonderful experience. Yes, there are a good many rules, but where are there not rules in this life and I believe the rules made for a better camping experience. This was our first ever beach camping experience and we would definitely come back here. The whole campground was very clean, the bath house was great. Loved showering after a long day at the beach with relaxing music overhead. A lot better bath houses than the mountain camping we have done over the years. We had wonderful customer service, Blake even went above and beyond with us and figuring out the tv/cable issue we had. This place is hopping and we moved sites because we chose to stay an extra night, check out is at 11 and check in is at 12. Our move went smoothly. These people move a lot of campers in and out and think that having to walk back to check in is minor. When they have 4 massive motor homes, fifth wheels, etc coming in at once everyone can't park at the check in site. 4 1/2 miles per hour was a little different speed, but have to say our kids were able to run around without the fear of being plowed down by a massive rv or speeding golf cart. When we go back we picked out a great site midway in the park with a large shade tree, recommend walking or riding around to pick out a spot you prefer for your next trip. Renting the golf cart was a must with all our beach gear and 5 kids in our group. It is a first come first serve basis, which was a little effort as we had to walk to front for rental two times, but no big deal. I would not personally want to stay right on beach due to sand and salt spray, but that is just a personal preference. Great pools north and south, great hippo slide, basketball courts, pool tables. Our kids ranged from 3-14 and they had a great time. Yes there are rules for them too, but they are within reason. I think it is just like good parenting. I know I have rambled about rules, negative reviews, but I just want others like me, middle class, hard working, family oriented family to know this is a great place to stay! Our group of two in their 60's (grandparents) and family of 5 and family of 4 had an awesome first beach camping trip. Would for sure go back here!!! Great family vacation for us!
