Even though I went in winter, it was still all really beautiful. It was great to think about how could see Mexico just on the other side of this body of water. I would definitely like to go back for a swim in warmer weather.

A little out of your way but walking distance to a restaurant/bar and other public facilities. The Camp only offers about 6 spots without accommodations for hook-ups. Being a National Recreation area, the cost to stay for those with a senior pass is very cheap....More

We were camping nearby and would walk the nature trails often. They are very clear and guided paths..short or long, depending on what you are looking for. Saw so many deer. Very peaceful!
