Yesterday we checked out the camp site only to be met with an INCREDIBLY rude man, who told us to leave immediately in an very rude and aggressive manner. We did not expect such a disgusting attitude - we won't ever be camping here, and will definitely be telling others of our experience.

A great friendly spot on the beach for self contained vans. Some sites have good views of the ocean. It can be a little noisy with the logging trains passing close behind the camp. Good fishing for surf casters and kontiki fishers.
