I should begin by saying that I am not a fair weather camper, nor am I a rookie. I have been camping with my family in every type of weather since before I can remember. Before taking this trip I have never bailed on a camping trip before...
The campground was clean and the staff/ rangers very nice. The beach was very close with a beautiful view. Seeing and watching the ponies were cool!
However, when I booked the campsite the web did not say anything about the campground being entirely sand. If I had known that I would have brought the proper stakes to keep my tent anchored and it wouldn't have blown over...in the middle of the night. Also, when reserving the site, the web said the site was partial shade. It neglected to say the shade was from whatever shade your tent cast. I would have brought a shade tent so my husband, daughter and I would not have had heat exhaustion. Then there was the black flies...3 different bug repellents were like sugar water!
If we would have talked to the rangers in the first place instead of the web we would have been better prepared.
In short...a good day trip for someone who has never seen the ponies...but I won't be returning!
