If it rains you will be walking in standing water. This park never seems to have a good spot for us to park our 34' 5th wheel with 3 slides. Our spot always seems to be too tight and I hate the back field parking....More

We lucked out with a clear windless day and took a walk out from the place where campers and surfers park at the end of the road. Closer inland, there are lots of sand-buggies raging up and down the steep dunes, but out here it's...More
