Hi-Tide Reviews

We had a fantastic time at Hi-Tide! We had a full hookup site near the seasonal campers. Everyone was so nice and welcoming! The owners are really nice people who care about ensuring safety and enjoyment for their campers. The campground was alive with campers and there was a ton of fun activities for families. There was no wifi or cable tv, but that just made us enjoy our neighbors and all the fun events! The DJ dance party was really fun! We will be back for sure!

We love Hi-Tide. Great people and lots of activities that will keep the kids busy and off the electronics. It's always a fun time at Hi-Tide.

I freaking love this place!!! If my husband would allow me to get a seasonal site, this would be the place. I can't wait to go back! Sad I found out about it such a short time ago!
