We took shady hikes, explored tide pools, and every evening watched deer grazing near the RV sites. Per certificates posted near the check-in area, a local newspaper proclaimed the park "Best place for a weekend getaway," "Best place to watch the sun set," and "Best county campground." We thought the park should also win "Best view from an RV dump site" because it's not often you get to look at a huge strait with snow capped mountains in the background as you empty your black tank. I tried to take a photo but it just didn't do it justice.
