There is no potable water at all for this and the other two campgrounds nearby (Grassy Flat and Patrick Creek) for the 2018 season due to water system failure so bring lots of water (there are still flush toilets here). Great site to camp by the river for swimming.
Pros: They have hot showers for free (wow!) and a playground, host sells firewood and ice, beach is right next to the sites.
Cons: The sites themselves are not private at all you're kind of all camping right next to each other without much brush dividing between but it's no big deal unless you are really looking for privacy. It can get pretty windy there depending on the day so you may not get to play cards that night.
The view is as pictured above, spectacular place to have your lunch on top of the little rock clearing (access from behind is easier). There isn't a ton of space up there on the rocky viewpoint so it can get a little crowded but I'm sure if you went early you could avoid the big groups. Pretty good work out but not too hard that a kid couldn't do it, my 8 year old had no complaints. Don't wear any brand new sneakers you don't want to get muddy.
We lost track of the markers about half way, not sure if they may have become buried or we just missed them but keep in mind you can't just walk to the beach anywhere from that area, there is a line of brush that divides the dunes from the beach that you can't cross unless you know where to look but it stretches for miles. We had fun exploring anyway. May want to bring a handkerchief to tie over your nose and mouth for windy days, you can get pretty sandblasted
Potable water near all the sites, very quiet and right on the dunes; pretty decent bathrooms
