  • Beautiful beach, nice quality sand, and facilities. Great post beach clean up amenities: outdoor showers, hot water inside showers. We had some dramatic clouds roll in just as we were leaving. $10 parking fee. Please respect and preserve this gem. Will definitely return!
  • Hither hills campground. I have to say one of the best bathrooms I've ever seen at a campground. They also have family bathrooms and super large showers 😜.No pull string water control is the best. There's a nice size playground for the kids or big adults. All the sites are back in. There is no privacy between sites and every site is completely open.Everyone is very friendly. They actually have a general store that sells beer. They sell wood at the main office $7 a bundle. It was worth it . On the back side of the main office building they have air fill up the station. If you're coming back from wheeling this is nice. From where we camped we were literally on the other side of the dune to the beach. There are no hookups so you have to be self-contained. There are water spickets around the campgrounds. So if you do pick a site that is close to one of these water stations you might get some extra foot traffic near your site. Something to think about when choosing a spot. We really had a great time and you're only 10 minutes away from town which was also very nice. We will definitely be returning.
  • Incredible beach! $10 daily fee as of July 2022; Empire Pass gets you in free. The sand is beautiful and soft, not rocky. The water is cold and has waves big enough for kids to splash in and get soaked without needing to worry much. We spent three hours with a three year old and two year old on the beach and loved it. You can’t do ANYTHING for three hours with kids that age! 😂
  • Quite an awesome natural preserve area, with unique "features" and so many options to offer to everyone. Camping, surfing breaks, kitesurfing or wingfoiling around the bays, "mountain" biking, fishing, hiking cliffs, dunes, and pine groves (plus there are several 4x4 car beach access options). Explore remainders of past military installations or wonder about mother nature and its full force. This park can get pretty magical. Cool vibe, good energy. I'd just avoid main season though (from Memorial throughout Labor days) - it gets really overcrowded (and pricey).
  • Very friendly guard. Passing by and walked around and enjoyed a lot to see the people with family, friends, in the great nature by the beautiful ocean. Wonderful camping place.
