This little park is right on the beach. It's a great place to watch birds and the sunsets.
While we were there it was quiet and peaceful. The only drawback is the distance from town and cell service.
Overall, we really enjoyed our stay here and would definitely come back if we are in the area, although, probably just for one night due to the mosquitoes and lack of nice bathrooms. I'd love to get another sunset experience like we had. So stunning.
The nearest town with a decent selection of stores is about 30 minutes away.
The cell service is pretty slow, but Starlink works great. The park does have wifi, but it's pretty slow and you'll need to be
close to the office to get a signal.
When we were there in December, the mosquitoes were terrible, so bring bug spray. It wasn't too bad on the beach or in the wind, but on the lee side of our van, they were pretty bad.
This park is very afforable at $20 a night for water and electric and only $3 per person a day for the entrance fee. These daily fees really add up though, so if you are going to stay for more than a few nights, it's probably worth it to buy the annual pass for $70. Another bonus to the pass is that it gives a 50% discount on camping fees for the second night of a reservation.
Our total for 2 nights of camping with water and electric was just $30. That's a great deal for a beachfront campsite.
The park office does sell a few items like firewood, water and souvenirs. They also had a bin of loaner beach toys.
There is a gate that probably won't close, but they give you a code
The campsites are decently spaced out but there is no privacy between sites and there is no shade in the campground at all.
The toilets at the park are pit toilets, but they are very clean and well maintained. There are no showers at the park other than the salt water rinse off showers.
The dump station for the campground is located about 1 mile down the road. If you need directions to it, ask at the office.
There are 2 short trails at this park since this park mostly focuses on the beach.
One trail is over boardwalks through the marsh area and is very open to the sun. The boardwalk gives good views of the marsh and has a few benches to sit on.
The other trail is a much shorter boardwalk to the beach.
We saw many different kinds of birds, racoons, oppossums, and crabs. We didn't see any alligators, but they are said to be in the area.
There may be primitive camping on the beach, have to look into this.
