There's a congenial atmosphere at this lively family-owned lodge-campground-marina. It's a happy mix of tent campers (who have the fabulous waterfront real estate), RVers (who look pretty permanent), and motel-dwellers who like to mingle at the rooftop pool and challenge each other to a game of poker. Rooms have tile floors, wicker furniture, and doors that allow sea breezes to waft through. A skywalk joins the upper story rooms with the pool and deck. Campsites range from rustic to full hookups. Everything is spotless—even the campground's bathhouse—and the service is good-natured and efficient. The staff will book you a room, sell you bait, or hook you up with a fishing charter. There are plenty of family-oriented activities, so the youngsters will never complain about being bored. Discounts are available for weeklong or longer stays. Pros: local fishing crowd; nice pool; great price. Cons: RV park is too close to motel; deer will eat your food if you're camping.
