The Five Islands Ocean Resort

Photograph of Five Islands Ocean Resort, Five Islands
9 OUT OF 10 Campground has a beautiful location with a friendly staff who try to work with the customers. Owners do enforce rules including quiet hours so everyone gets to sleep at night. In other parks I have been awakened too many times by loud partying. I appreciate owners who are willing to make rules .....
