The campground itself is nothing more than a parking lot, but you can't beat it's proximity to New York. When driving there, keep an eye on the road signs as well as the GPS because it can be somewhat overwhelming. The PATH train is a short and SAFE walk, and it only costs $1.75 to get into New York. Although the PATH tickets and the Subway tickets look the same, they are not interchangeable. The tour bus will come to your campsite. There is no water during the off season, but there is water available. Also, if you pay for six nights, you get the seventh free.
The nice thing about this park is that you get to tell your friends you stayed at a plantation along the Mississippi river. Mark, the owner was very friendly and offered us a free tour of the facility. It was very interesting. We parked in what looked like overflow along the fence. It was dry while we were there, but if it rained, that area would get very messy. There are sites with concrete pads, so if you are staying for a long time, request one of these. The park roads are very narrow, but most of the sites are wide with plenty of shade. Make sure you go to Hymels seafood restaurant down the road; the food is incredible. We would stay there again.
I would like to rate this park higher but I can't. The staff was very friendly. They were always ready to go the extra mile. They offered free breakfast at the office which consists of coffee and a danish. The people who are full-timers at the park are all very friendly, they treated my children like royalty. The bathrooms were immaculate. On the downside was the noise. Between the trains behind us, the fire engines next door, and the garbage truck at 3:30 in the morning, it was hard sleeping at night. You also have to plan ahead when you drive into the park. The median on the road makes it impossible to enter from the west. You have to find a place to turn around and enter from the east, and most of the side roads are very narrow with low trees. Having said all that, would stay here again though
This was an amazing campground. It was very family friendly. The staff were always pleasant and helpful. The pools were always warm and clean. There were quite a few permanent residents, but everyone that we spoke to were friendly and nice. We actually stayed an extra week because we loved it so much. We would definitely stay here again.
KEEP DRIVING!!! DO NOT STOP HERE!!! Although the facilities and store are very clean and beautiful, the campsites themselves are absolutely horrid. They are so tiny that our slides were nearly touching the RV next to us. They were dangerous to back into, and there is no room to park. Everyone is instructed to park in front of their unit which leaves a virtual obstacle course when trying to drive down the "streets" of the campground. We were told that we could not have a pull through because the length of our stay was too long, but when we finally got backed in to our site our hitch stuck way out into the street. Backing in was a nightmare. A professional trucker finally did it for us and he even had a difficult time. When I went to the office to ask for a more suitable site because we could not fit, the "helpful" staff handed me a tissue and said: "Stop crying and try again; we are not moving you." We ended up with a dent in our slide from the people next door leaving. But really, the fault was not theirs; it was the tiny sites. Children are expressly forbidden from even entering the laundry room, which for a family campground or any campground is totally ridiculous. We have been full time RVing for 6 months now, and this is hands down the worst campground we have found in Saskatchewan, Alberta, BC, Washington, Oregon, or California.
This park is 3/4 full of permanent residents. 2 out of the three showers were closed for half of our stay. Someone behind us decided to build something at one in the morning. Having said all that, the pool and Hot tub were great. The staff was friendly most of the time. If we had to, we would probably stay here again.
Don't let the picture on the website fool you, it's still a good hike to the beach. Having said that, the campground was very nice with each site secluded from each other. We stayed in #28 and truly felt like we were the only ones in the park (we weren't of course). The mini mart on site is just that, mini. You can buy the bare essentials there. Staff was always really friendly. I would recommend straying away from the campground and exploring Highway 101. This section of road is incredible with many places to stop and take pictures. Florence is only about 5 minutes away. We would stay here again.
We had a wonderful time at this campground. We were skeptical at first because the sites were so close together with very little shade, but the short walk over the dunes and to the ocean made up for it. It was quite windy while we were there, but we found a small alcove in the dunes and settled down for four days. The kids loved to play in the lighthouse that is on the site, and would go there before they ate breakfast. The sound of the ocean lulled us to sleep each night. The site we were in was paved and level.
This was our first stay in a fairground type RV park so we didn't know what to expect. It wasn't a fancy resort, but it was great for the price. The kids loved to see the horses in the stables, along with the deer and raccoons that lived in the area. The showers could use some maintenance and upkeep. The Wifi was great though.
