We enjoyed our stay and the park didn't fail. Great campsite, amenities (showers, clean bathrooms, great staff). The kids loved it and our camping neighbors were very social.

Well maintained park with boardwalks. It is not overly manicured so it feels very natural. It is usually quiet, but can get packed on the holidays. Go and enjoy!

It is a drive but it is worth it. Outdoor showers and clean bathrooms are everywhere. No crowd ever. Just don't venture out too far into the surf and run for cover (go home) when it storms. You don't want to be the tallest item...More

There are plenty of free beach access opportunities, but I will gladly pay the $5 entry fee to access the tranquil, clean beaches at Talbot. Before you visit, be aware that the southern most beach is fishing only, NO swimming/wading due to strong currents. There...More
