a shelter, BBQ grill, diagonal gravel parking and a
marked parallel parking space on the asphalt. Some
face the SE and some the NE - pick your site based
on wind direction if possible. This campground is
close to the water and with a  nice sea breeze
through the RV, I survived with just a fan - no air
conditioning in mid July.
None of the campsites on the west side of the road have
shelters or BBQ grills. They are fully paved. Bring your
own grill and roll out the awning.

There are several parking spaces, about 9 or 10,
dispersed on this side of the campground for primitive
beach campers. No grill, shelter or picnic table.
This is a long narrow campground, everybody is
close to the water.
The restrooms have flush toilets. There are three
lavatories in the mens room. What the NPS calls
The shower rooms are large, private with locks,
shelves, adjustable shower seats, grab bars, a regular
shower head and a shower for your feet. Unlike the
cold rinse off showers in so many parks, these have
warm water.
There are also outdoor rinse off showers
Nicer than most.
