We arrived at Caribou on Thursday afternoon, and although the park was fairly busy, we had no problem getting a site to our liking - sunny and with a view of the ocean. Site 10.

Date of visit: Aug 2009

If you like to be out in the open, then sites 1-24 are for you. They are arranged in a circle in a large grassy area right beside the beach. These are sites 4-8.

You can get a little afternoon shade in the back of the loop, such as sites 21 and 23 here.

Sites 25-95 are all wooded sites; here is 54.

As is site 45.

The bathhouse is located in the middle of the wooded loops, a pretty good walk from the sunny sites, 1-24. It was clean and provides free hot showers.

Scattered throughout the campground are some more primitive facilities.

What do you do at Caribou? Why, hang out on the long sandy beach.
