Lovely campground
August 24, 2015
Large, well-separated sites with lots of trees. It's across the street from the ocean. Lobster and showers less than a mile away. Very good evening programs. Large stone fire pits.

We stayed here in a Tent.

Enjoyable dry camping experience

If you're camping at Seawall Campground, be prepared to rough it a little. I say a little because although this is a no-hookup campground, it does have water spigots and good, clean restrooms. The sites are wide and surrounded by trees for privacy, although it can be a challenge to get level. We really enjoyed ourselves here.

We stayed here in a Travel Trailer.
