We visited Curio Bay just in the afternoon and did not stay at the campground. We parked in the lot that indicated there was a petrified forest on the beach. We walked down and hunted around and found a few petrified logs. We then walked...More

Hi. For November it would be advisable to book if you wanted a powered site, if not we have plenty of options for non powered sites so no need to book.
