This is a huge park with lots of great sites. Beaches are great although a bit of a hike from campground. Unusually windy and cold weekend but still had a lot of family fun.

Beautiful park. Clean, spacious, fairly private camp sites. Facilities are extremely well maintained. Friendly, conscientious staff. Only drawback to our visit was the number of neighbouring campsites with crying toddlers and infants.
