Anthony at the gym is now in charge of Carr Point. Things seem a little more organized so maybe we'll see some improvements. It didn't appear that any maintenance had been done on the gravel pad areas since last year; thin to no gravel in places with weeds growing through. Grounds are kept mowed and trash is routinely picked up. The bay view is good from the RV, but the shoreline tress/shrubs are starting to obscure it if you're sitting at the picnic table. If they had sewer this would be great. Police do make occasional cruise-bys into the park in the evening.
Sites are gravel and sort of level with water & electric. Sites are back-ins, but everyone pulls in, as hookups are on the drivers side if you pull in plus you get great views of the bay. An unusal, but welcome touch is individual trash cans on site that are regularly emptied. The CG is in a great location, being near Newport, but security is non-existant at the campground. It's a favorite spot for locals to come down and fish, evenings and weekends. The price is high since amenities consist of one portapotti that is changed once a week, but great compared to the couple of public CGs in the area. There are great facilities on the base. The back gate is about 3 miles down the road, but is only open during normal work hours M-F. Other times you have to go around the base to Gate 1. The dump station at Melville is easy to access.
Just stayed one night. Very clean, nice little campground. Without sewer, it would not be a great place to stay very long. On site office closed and looked like it had been for a long time. No one around. Made reservation on phone, so no need to check in. I think it could be a nice campground for someone just doing the tourist thing in the area, but it is a little out of the way for a one night stop like I did. I think $20 was a little high for what the campground offers, but again, location. The trains did run, but not late and not that noisy.
