Our Spot at Boulder Beach Campground
The view of Boulder Beach from the campground is absolutely stunning.
There is nothing better than sitting in the campground amphitheatre and taking in all of the beautiful surroundings. We enjoyed Campground Kareoke at the amphitheater on the night we were there. Check out the video of Mack singing on our Facebook Page
We have to shoutout Tedi the Camp Host at Boulder Beach Campground, she was very welcoming and made us feel at home.
