This campsite has definite pros. Easy beach access, gorgeous beaches and great clean bath houses. Cons: the noseeums, mosquitoes and biting flies were horrific. We thought by waiting to camp here in November would ease that problem. It did not. Camp sites are not set up efficiently. We had to manually swing our camper around in order to not have power cords running across our entire site. We made the mistake of arriving after dark to find that we had the least desirable camp site. We chose another site to set up and the park ranger made us move to another camp site the following day. We knew this might have been a possibility but we were surprised when they actually made us move. At our originally assigned site, our water hookup was forty feet away and we couldn't find it. The only possible way we would camp here again is after a hard freeze, possibly February. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
On the website the sites all look big and secluded but when we got there they were all bunched up. The beach was brown and dirty. We drove up to Mexico Beach to go in the water. They had a basketball court. No ball! They had Horseshoes, No poles! Pool looks big and large on the website. Very small pool. Sewer dump site. I had to back up several times to get to it. Did'nt think I was going to be able to do it. I woke up the camper next
door to the sewer dump. I told him I was sorry that I was leaving so early and had woke him up He told me that he could not believe that he was so close to the dump station. Don't get the State Park mixed up with this park. Two totally different parks I will not stay at this park again. We camped here in a camper.
