Our Guests Say...

We truly have enjoyed our stay at "The Cove". This summer we have traveled over 5000 miles in the past two months since leaving our home in Surprise, Arizona. In our opinion we have yet to experience a campground with the caliber of hospitality, cleanliness, organization, and facilities in our ten years of RVing. Most of all is the fabulous ocean front view at many elevations giving all sites an awesome view. This aspect of "The Cove" is priceless!
