Camping Thanksgiving Week

I am planning on camping at Sea Camp the Saturday through Wednesday before thanksgiving. Has anyone had experience camping there this late in the year? It seems like the best time for us to go with family but didn't know if the ferry would be running the day before thanksgiving to bring us back. I've also never camped there before. Does anyone have a favorite campsite at Sea Camp?

First of all, check the ferry schedule before reserving a campsite.


I have camped there in early November. The main drawback to that time of year is that days are so short, but I have friends who think Thanksgiving is the best time to be there. I prefer the sites that are in the loop to the left of the road as you walk in but there aren't any really bad sites except that some would be tight for a full group. I can't recall numbers of smaller sites but if you have a group with more than 4 tents, you might want to email the park. Rangers are very good about responding.
