Hike to the lighthouse for a sunset, you won't regret it.

Great campsite! The mile hike in is not hard at all, but there isn't any running water once you get there, so fill up your bottles beforehand. A few hundred yards from the beach make for great sunsets and hearing the waves crash on the shore throughout the night.

Though the almost 1 mile hike to the sites was long with our poorly packed rolling cooler and backpacks, the proximity to the beach and lack of smothering by other campers was well worth it! We reserved site E, which is the most secluded and tree covered, other than the firepit that is awkwardly placed near the entrance of the site looking over on site C & D.

Really nice campground - felt very rustic, but also had clean outhouses and a water pump! Site G was nice and large, but not great for hammock camping (we had to go back to the car for our backup tent because we could only hang one hammock). Sites F, H and E would have been better for hammocks. Was great for a tent though - lots of soft sand and very level area for tent, and it had a shortcut path to the outhouse through the site (which was very nice for those midnight bathroom trips!). All in all, it was a cool campground to go to. We did it to take our 5 year old daughter on her first "backpacking" trip to get her used to more rustic camping and carrying everything in. Since it was only 1 mile, it was a perfect starter trip for her!
