There are no showers at Wright's Beach Campground, but campers are permitted to drive down to Bodega Dunes Campground and use the showers there. The campground has no hook-ups for RVs. A dump station is located at Bodega Dunes Campground. During times when the campgrounds are crowded an overflow area is available for self-contained RVs.
