Reason #1 - Sand dunes! Walking on the beach is fun, but sand dunes are even better. The park has a "cordwalk" system that floats on top of the sand and will move with the shifting forms. Cool, right?
Reason #2 - cryptobiotic soil can be found on the dunes, and it always reminds me of our time in Utah. Don't walk on the sand, People, new plant communities struggling to grow and thrive!
Reason #3 - the variety of plant life is amazing as the park goes from beach to dunes to woods to marsh.
Reason #5 - Lots of birds and small mammals around, and of course deer. Every night when I'm camping I'll wake up at some point to listen to the owls and coyotes too.

Oh, and it's easy to make friends. Some you want to hang around with...and some you don't. Happy camping!
