The Islay Creek CG was nice but could use a little attention to the fire rings and the critter lockers. Our grill was unusable and we were provided a temporary rusty grill from an old BBQ set. Despite that, the location is gorgeous! A misty and damp place with beautiful rock formations and dramatic surf. Easy hikes for the whole family along the bluffs with plenty of photo opportunities. Plenty of mountain biking and strenuous hikes for the more athletic types. The Spooner Ranch house is lovely. All in, a great place to spend a couple of days. Spots 50, 40 and 25 are best for tents.
