We came in on a Sunday afternoon in early August and had no problems finding an open site in Loop C. Most sites are fairly level, but some do have a bit of grade. Most of the double sites were taken by tent campers, but we had no problems with a single wide site. No over-the-air TV or cell phone reception at this NP. Nearest place for limited supplies is Torrey, about 10 miles west. Forget going east for anything. The campground hosts were right on top of things here. Just what we normally expect in a NPS campground. Deer are all over here, we had six mostly bucks show up one afternoon. We would come back if in the area. The only negative would be the very limited generator hours. 8 to 10 in the morning and 6 to 8 in the evening. It gets light at about 6, so waiting until 8 makes for a later start to the day.

Good value about sums it up at $20 a night after taxes added. We had a 50 amp full hookup somewhat level pull-through; our front left corner was pulled right up to a small bushy tree. When we called, we had asked about getting one of the bigger sites on the top level and were told they fill fast at the beginning of the season and then stay that way. He said that they have 'opened up' some of the sites on the lower level, but these sites are still tight as can be and are 15' x 55'. Some of these sites have a rail fence on between them making them extra tight. We were OK the three nights we had empty sites on both sides of us. But one night we had someone pull into the site on our curbside making things really tight. We could not walk around our RV without going into another site. It's that tight. They do have some wonderful 30 amp and water sites behind the office that nobody seemed to use. These sites are cheaper at $14.95 a night. You could have all the room you need in these sites, so if you don't have a 50 amp RV, it would be well worth checking out these sites. OTA TV was very good, the Wi-Fi was mostly very good. As long as you know what to expect, this place works as a base for visiting the local NPs.

We paid $25 plus 11% tax for a large level pull-through with 50 amp full hookups. Most sites came with a pile or two of dog crap at no extra charge. If you look up 'the middle of nowhere', this is it. The review about 47 over-the-air stations was that poster's idea of a joke. No OTA TV reception here at all. Verizon cell and broadband both on extended 3G networks. The broadband varied with the time of day, OK early (very) AM and not usable at all in the PM. This is a 24 hour establishment with a lot of very early traffic. There are several mobile home style trailers here and the people who live in them just drive through any empty site. So we had traffic passing through the empty site next to us. A Sysco food delivery truck towing tandem came in before 6 AM with his delivery in the rear trailer. Lots of shuffling around for that. There really are no other options around if you have a decent RV.

Good Sam discount, lower marks due to high cost for this part of NV. Overall a very nice stopping point. We had a nice long and level 50 amp full hookup with cable & Wi-Fi. The Wi-Fi was mostly very good during our two day stay. Interesting cable lineup, I found network stations out of Vegas, Reno and Salt Lake City. So no matter which way your headed you can see what's going on. Very friendly check-in. The laundry was small, 2 of each, $1.50 for washing and $1.00 to dry. The dryers looked new and all machines worked great. The only negative was when they just shut the power off to our row to fix a problem at a site. It was during the dinner hour, fortunately we had just finished ours. No warning at all, there were only 3 or 4 sites occupied and it would have taken less than 5 minutes to notify us. Instead, we are checking for tripped breakers and looking for a problem that was not there. A complete lack of common courtesy by the maintenance staff.

We stopped for two days and it was like being in hell it was so hot. There are NO 50 amp outlets here and we could not run both ACs on 30 amps. The electric boxes are locked with a padlock. So the RV turned into a sauna while we were checking in. The girl who checked us in forgot to come out and unlock the electric for us and we had to go back in to get her to come out. Which she did, only she unlocked the electric box and water on our curb side we moved to. We could reach, but it was more time in the blazing sun making the water and electric connections on the wrong side. I was in the process of moving the coach as the first site we had chosen was at the US-50 end of the middle row. Cars and trucks would come flying into the RV area from the side street passing within a couple of feet of us and while driving through empty RV sites. The side street next to the RV sites becomes one way from here to US-50. So lots of traffic cuts thru this "RV Park" to bypass the one way portion. The first row closest to the motel had what appeared to be 3 permanents in it taking all of the east facing sites. The other open sites in that row all faced west. The Wi-Fi was extremely slow from the RV sites. Over-the-air TV was limited to a couple of PBS type stations, no networks. Verizon cell and broadband were both good. OK for a one night stay here, but that is it.

As reviewed before, this is a great campground with large mostly level sites with 50 amp electric and water. We had no trouble finding a site in late July mid-week, but did end up with a lot of sun late in the day. The turn off is 5.5 miles down from CA 36. After making the turn off of 89, the first left is the dump station which also has potable water available, Legacy Campground is the second left. If you are in a big rig you really don't want to go any further down the road unless you have been there before. We took our toad through the North Campground and it is tight, we did not see one site that would work for a large motor home. Going further down there did not appear to be any place to turn a large rig around. Legacy Campground has no over-the-air TV reception and no Internet access with Verizon. We did have marginal cell service coming through as 1X.

Good value with Senior pass. We had a fairly tight pull-through and were barely able to keep our tires on the asphalt. The campground is mostly level, but no effort was made to level out the sites. So they do have some slope to them, but we had no problem getting level. The 50 amp electric was good, we did not use water. No dump station is available here. The bathrooms had a code to access them. The host who we never saw has the code for them. Very quiet and dark at night. Lots of empty spots when we arrived mid-week. Over-the-air TV was OK, we did pick up a few stations.

Very good value with Passport America. Transient sites are all pull-through 50 amp full hookups with cable on a concrete pad. WiFi was very good and site also had a picnic table. Washing RVs is allowed here. Great location on 99 (Old Pacific Hwy) between exits 103 and 106. Nicely kept grass separates the sites. Very quiet at night. Interior roads are a bit tight in the corners when a lot of vehicles are parked. We came in for 3 nights and spent 6. We would stop again.

Lower value rating due to $10 reservation fee. I really hate places like this, they have a full time person on duty during the days and they think they can charge extra for making a reservation. On a short stay, that really gets felt in the nightly rate of $31 for a back in site. Most sites are fairly level and are hard packed gravel / stone surface. We had a 50 amp FHU with cable. The cable lineup was good, but the picture quality was borderline. The wi-fi was so so, we were getting dropped or not able to get on at all most of the time. For what they charge, the cable and wi-fi should both be outstanding. But they are both less than acceptable.

High marks for value and location. This place has a lot of potential, but it is not used. The CG was almost empty when we pulled in, two sites occupied. The first thing we saw on our arrival was a 5th wheel with all kinds of crap around it. Tent, tires, wooden lawn chairs, etc. Something that is not allowed by most commercial RV Parks. At first it looked like they were living here. We were able to pick a site a good distance away (the other occupied site had done the same) and had no problems during our stay. All sites are very level hard packed gravel (maybe recycled asphalt, no dust at all) and there is water available when you first pull in. Do not look for Airport Rd per Google Maps, just follow the airport signs, not the turnoff for the museum. We had very good Verizon cell and broadband. Several OTA stations, ABC being the only network. If they added electric to some of the sites this place would really catch on. Lots of wind off the ocean so we picked a site facing the airport and had no one near us. That protected our curbside from the wind.

Sites are arranged somewhat like a wagon wheel. The back of the sites are very close to each other and have a very large bush in between them. These are way overdue for trimming. The grass is at least 18" tall and appears that it simply never gets cut. At $20 this place is probably ok, but $25 puts it on the edge value wise. The hookups are all at the rear of the site, so it took a bit of time to position our motor home where we could put the slides out and still reach the sewer connection. But once setup, it was very nice. No OTA TV, the wi-fi was very fast and dependable.

This NPS gem of a CG is located right on the Pacific Ocean between MP's 154 and 155. The CG is shaped like a long narrow U running along the ocean. Larger RV's and people with slides should keep right when the CG road splits. This is the upper level and the sites are longer and wider on this level. We had no problem looking over the smaller units on the lower level. Sites on the lower level closer to the ocean are much narrower and have some side to side slope to them. No water or dump station here, but it is available a couple miles up the road at the Kalaloch CG. We spent 4 nights (Thu thru Sun) the weekend after the 4th of July and there were plenty of open sites available every night during our stay. Verizon cell and broadband were mostly good, but calls did drop not and then. No OTA TV reception. A great quiet place to spend a few nights.

Good value with Passport America, $39 for 2 nights. We had a nice level 50 amp FHU with cable. The wifi was usable, but on the slow side. Site had a very course stone base which was tough on the feet. Some sites are back to back, so if the other half is empty it works like a pull thru. We were able to pull thru into our site, but someone backed into the site behind us the next day. Speed bumps were made of gravel and somewhat hard to see. They had just recently been redone, so they were on the severe side. Parking for the toad was tight as it was between our motor home and a tree. Overall, a nice stopping point and the cookies were excellent.

Sites are not all that wide here. We had people sitting only a couple of feet away from us near their fire ring. We could not open any windows because of the smoke from their fire. Kind of a sketchy place, but we had no problems. There are people living in tents here who spend 7 nights, leave for 1 and then come back. Sites are mostly level and paved. Verizon cell and broadband both very good. OTA TV was poor, no networks found. We had ION and a couple of PBS type stations. Not a place we are likely to return to, but our stay was acceptable.
