We booked this campsite online on New Years Eve, December 2013. Camped in August 2014.
The location was the best for the National Seashore, Rail Trails, fishing and hub for travel/site seeing.
The site itself was flat, level and clean. Our camper fit nicely with the hookups correctly placed. Another nice amenity is the night light on the power panel. It gave enough light to see the trailer service area should you need to start the hot water heater, drain the waste or connect the domestic water after sunset. We marveled at the service the ground crew took when a camper left, they would clean the site and empty the fire pit shortly after the party departed. There was no animals scavenging the area because the entire campground was kept clean and tidy.
The lodge was esthetically pleasing, a New England Cape style building. Spacious, easy flow with an arcade, gift shop, lavatories and most of all, a very pleasant staff. After sign in we were given the typical magnetic gate key to pass and repass thru the gate. My truck is lifted and it was a real pleasure to have the 2nd card reader at an elevated height so I didn't have to fold myself out of the window to enter every time. I assume the coach drivers would appreciate this as well!
The domestic staff keep the showers as clean as possible. I have to say that of any of the many campsite we have stayed in, these showers are by far the cleanest! They are free as well. No quarter for 10 minuet showers here. After a long day of playing in the surf with the children, a good hot shower is exactly what I need. There is the laundry area as well, nice and tidy, coin operated service which is more than fair I believe.
In short, if you plan on coming to the Cape, by all means make your reservations here! Do it early to reserve a place in this most desirable location.
As for the few who have chosen to leave the lowest possible score, think of it this way. Nature has bugs that are not in control of any human, that's not in this campsite control. Make a reservation and abide by the rules. You have signed a contract, if you are unable to cancel within the allotted time, it's your loss. It's not the money but the mortgage these fine people have. If you have a breathing problem, perhaps a camping trip is not a good option for you and your family. Milk and cookies, peanut butter and jelly, peas and carrots and campfires and camping go hand in hand. The Town of Eastham Fire Marshall has an ordinance that states the fires must be extinguished with water no later than 11:00 pm. After the water is placed on the fire pit it is not smoke but steam you blithering idiot. I do have compassion for you and your poor health, go rent a room at the local hotel, but don't bash this fine establishment for things that aren't in their control.
Oh, buy the way, I wish I had taken my dog with us. The campsite was very accommodating to K9's.
Thanks in Advance,
