We just got back a couple hours ago, and I have stuff to do, but a quick report.
We arrived Monday right at check-in time, 11 a.m. Unfortunately, we started at the North Inlet, the wrong campsite. So off we went over the big beautiful bridge to the South Inlet. As it turned out, I reserved a great site. Anyways, we had pre-registered, so no hassles at all there. Very friendly staff at check-in.
Soon as we pulled in, a couple fellows had followed us over from the North Inlet camp site to look at the Parkliner
. They had a Casita
. We chatted a bit, and then they left and we set camp up. They were leaving the next morning, so we never got a chance to see their camper.
We were on the north side of the campground, closest to the inlet, as well as the camp store, but a hike from restrooms. Rest rooms were okay and great, depending on what you needed. The showers closest to the check-in site were the best. Constant on water, and a range of temperatures from very hot to cold. The other one close ton us was the push button type shower, never very warm, and a pain.
It's an easy walk over to the seashore, easier bike rid, or just jump in the car and go. Long as you're staying at the campground, entry is free. The ocean was very active while we were there, somewhat unusual from what more experienced campers told us. After the first day, Gail wouldn't go back in. Me, I threw caution to the wind, and spent considerable time in the water.
It's a great place for bike riding and kayaking in the inland waters. There are kayak launch sites just north and south of the campgrounds.
The last day we were there a Casita
pulled in, but the day degraded quickly and when I did go over, no one was around. When I say degraded, I mean it. We go deluged with water around noon Thursday and Saturday to the point most of the campground was either flooded, or you had to go through flooded areas to get to restrooms or about anywhere. Turns out I got a great site - we did not get flooded at our site. Others did to the point they were stepping in water over their ankles getting out of their campers. We happened to be in Bethany Beach Thursday when it happened and Rehoboth Beach Saturday when it happened. It was so sever lots of folks pulled over till it let up. Heavy duty rain!
On the way home earlier today, saw a Burro
going south, but that was about it for eggs.
More later and pics as well.
