Great little site

Submitted by Guest on August 22, 2014

Just returned from a few days at Cougar Creek, we were fortunate enough to get a spot right on the ocean overlooking the docks. Campsites are in amongst tall trees and are tight quarters but the camp is primarily for fishing so everyone doesn't seem to mind. I am told when it is busy there are over a hundred RV's using up every square inch of available sparking pace. We enjoyed our stay, the host was very friendly and helpful. Only gripe I heard was the limited moorage space as most nights people had to "raft up" to tie up for the night... but on the other hand moorage is free so can one really complain? Good fishing limited out on springs. We will be back next year!
