There is NO camping allowed here anymore. All camp fees for peninsula are out of date too. Be prepared to pay $30 minimum per night for a tent alone in the area.

Nice quiet campground, with only toilets. Safe beach for swimming and kayaking. Eels were definitely a hit with the kids. Planning to camp there again soon.

Beautiful campground, lots of space. Great place for kids to explore. Lots to do...beach, walks, mountain biking, see the eels, jump off the jetty. Kids want to go back.
