“Where’s a Great Spot to Take my Family Camping?”
Here at the Visitor’s Center, we are frequently being asked about local campgrounds.
“Are there campgrounds with clean sites for tent camping, RV’s and yurts”
“Do the local campgrounds in your area have picnic facilities and easy access to the beach?”
“Is there a place we can take our family fishing, swimming, and boating and hiking?”
If you’re looking for a place to get away in a quiet, natural setting that’s conveniently located close to “must see” attractions like Simpson’s Reef, the Cape Arago Lighthouse, Shore Acres State Park and Cape Arago State Park, our answer is Sunset Bay State Park.
Click here to find out why Sunset Bay State Park is one of the most consistently recommended camping destinations among families, couples, kayakers, paddle boarders, picnickers, hikers and everyone in between!
