Campsites have nice vegetation between neighbors so you have privacy. We were there in late August and there were few other campers. Friendly and helpful campground host. Great boardwalk trail around the estuary. Other trails too. Camping for hikers, tenters and smaller RVs. No utilities...More

We rode bicycles here from town. It was a great ride. The trail system in this park is amazing. Could be easily and comfortably walked in the rain. The bird watching observatory is beautiful.

Love it here. The hike to Mosquito Cove is very pretty and fun too. I also like going across to the Estiary Life loop.

We tent camped for five nights and it was beautiful! Sites built right into forest. Primitive camping.

Nice peaceful area. Be Bear aware on any of the trails. Make sure you check out the artesian well on the campground side.

The trail is excellent to take a nice hike any time of the day. They keep the trails nice and cleared of debris. The trail has varying terrain but anyone can hike them without too much trouble.
