Rose Bay Campground was the second stop on the trip where we stayed for one week. Upon arrival there is a small parking lot to the side where you can park your rig and walk-in to check in. This campground did have up to par amenities such as wireless internet, laundry, shower/restrooms, and weekly music events at the clubhouse. One thing that was noticed was how narrow the roads were and how tight all the sites were together. It took a bit of reversing and pulling forward several times to get properly within the site.

The campsite was not bad, had all the utilities that were needed and a bit of space. Utilities were far from the parked rig which means we needed extensions to the sewer hose, the clean water hose, and the electric. I don’t believe all sites had the utilities far from where the rig is parked, but the site we were at the time definitely did. There was a concrete slab which helped level the stabilizers, but where the extra car was parked in front of the RV turned to muddy mess when it rained.

Just a couple minutes’ walk up the street was a small building which housed the showers, restrooms, laundry, and a few soda vending machines. The showers were very clean, spacious, and private. Campground internet offered was paid internet but provided free internet at this building which means you can bring your device and sit at the building to use the internet free.

Doing some exploring around the grounds, happened to come across a small body of water teaming with life adjacent to several campsites. During the duration of the stay, we happened to attend several music events at the main building. Some reviews online will state that Rose Bay Campground is not to be considered a campground as there are a lot of mobile homes and permanent residents there, which could be true. Even so, the place was a decent campsite to stay for a week and if needed to, would happily stay there again.
