Brigadoon Glamping RV
My family had a fantastic time over July 4th week staying in the Brigadoon RV. It was clean, well stocked with dishes, utensils, keurig, and had a good sized fridge/freezer. There was enough room for my family of 7 to sleep comfortably and the dark pull down shades were a huge plus to getting the kids to sleep in until a decent hour :) The RV is in a partially shaded and somewhat protected area so we never had to use the heater or the AC. The whole area around the RV/tent sites is covered in a fine gravel which is great with kids because its not dusty and feels super clean. We ate and cooked all our meals outside where there is a fire pit, table, carpeted area, and awning for shade. While my wife and I cooked the kids occupied themselves with ping pong, corn hole, the putting green, and disc golf. The two other tent sites are located such that noise or privacy was never an issue. We actually had a great time hanging out with the people at the 2 other sites. There is fantastic outdoor shower with great water pressure and instant hot water. We spend most of our day at Manresa, Sunset, or the Boardwalk but Brigadoon was perfect for our mornings and evenings. Dawn and Sven are super friendly and were responsive to all our needs.

Oak Grove at the Barn
When we arrived we were greeted by the sweetest girl, a black dog that visited us often through our stay. She is such a delight. My 21 & 6 year autistic son enjoyed this site greatly with many activities like ping pong, bean bag toss and a beautiful lounge area by the barn and an option for smores. The lights at night created such a romantic ambiance. Also the property was very accessible for our Aunt and Uncle in their 60’s. We all chuckled a bit when we heard the cars pass by as this site is by a main road, with the layout of the land and all the vegetation it has a wilderness feel. We really appreciated how close we were to all the attractions, trails and beaches!! Our lil family will definitely return to this gem of a spot!

Oak Grove at the Barn
Had a wonderful couple of days at the Barn. Dawn's attention to detail was very much appreciated. Location was great with easy access to fabulous beaches and I loved having the place to ourselves. There are two roads right by the barn which were busy at times but when the roads were quiet it felt like you were more immersed in the forest. Plenty of activities provided for the kids which was appreciated. There is a street light at the entrance which lit up our tent all night which could be a problem if you are sensitive to light when sleeping. Luckily I packed a sleep mask.

Sweet little campground
Very sweet little campsite, nice and flat for tents and lovely touches for kids and grownups. There’s a little road noise that starts early in the morning, but just bring earplugs. Only 3 spots so not crowded at all :).

Oak Grove at the Barn
We absolutely loved camping in our camper van on Dawn’s land, Oak Grove at the Barn. It was a quick 5 minute drive to Manresa Beach (an awesome beach). The site itself was beautiful and wonderfully appointed - a really high end site. No better feeling than an outdoor shower after a beach day. Our dogs loved it and we will be back.
