Best part of this campground is proximity to a beautiful beach (and warm showers). It was kept clean throughout our stay despite being nearly full. Another plus is that it is very close to the cute town of Nye Beach. Downside is the sites are...More

I made a reservation for two nights but stayed only one. Positive was that the campground is near the beach. Negative includes pretty much everything else. Generally RV campers don't mind being packed like hotdogs but tent campers generally prefer more space. Tent sites are...More
