We had reservations here for a week in early April 2012, just after Easter. The day we got here it was beautiful, sunny and just a light breeze. The park itself is in a perfect location, quick walk to the beach which was clean and the ocean water was a beautiful clear blue.. exactly what we came here for. Sites are nice and spacious for a big rig like our 38ft 5th wheel, the ones closest to the park office get good WIFI speed, not so sure about the others. Very impressed with the bath houses, modern, clean and lots of toilets and showers. They aren't open to the general public, campers get a key card to access them. You even have your choice of stair or elevator access to them if you have physical limitations.
Next day, things went downhill. A bad weather system moved in and stayed for the entire week we were there. Extremely high winds whipped the sand around so much that it wasn't even pleasant to be outside...you got sand blasted. Cooking outside was impossible without a tarp to block the wind but it didn't help much with the sand. All of our equipment, bikes, chairs, trailer got coated in sticky, gritty, sand. What a mess! The same system also threw tons of seaweed in the water and on the beach.... made swimming or fishing next to impossible.
Our timing really sucked because the day we left, the weather was gorgeous. The county workers were already working hard removing the seaweed from the beach that morning. So if you stay here when mother nature is having a good day, you'll love it. If she's have a bad day or week like we got, you won't have much fun.
