Report: I don't live far from this park so it makes thins much easier going to it. Not saying it is bad or anything, and the sites with full hookups are good and level. However, the water tastes terrible, and privacy is non existent. Overall I can say this is a some what good park,....weather makes a big difference even if going with an RV. I will always keep in mind that the park suffered severe damage from a bad storm. I would say,..."try it at least once."

Report: The campground is wooded and pretty with a creek running through it, but the sites themselves are tightly packed together and a small site may or may not fit your car and a 2 man tent at the same time. Ambiance, however, is the sound of the freeway running next to it. The "lagoon" is a football field-sized basin that is controlled by the tide so it is only filled when the tide is up, meaning much explanation is needed for unhappy and expectant children wanting to swim. When the tide is out, it is a mud basin. The water in the canal was as warm as bath water, unfortunately, if the tide is out, the "shoreline" turns into a sucking mud pit. Those that dare to venture will lose shoes, animals, and small children as the mud quickly comes to your knees. Once you lose your shoes, your feet become the victims of thousands of oyster shells. Bring your first aid kit!
