Nice NFS campground near a very scenic lake. No hookups and no shade. Paved roads and parking pads. Pads are all over the place with a few long and level but many that are shorter, or unlevel (both side to side and front to back). Seems better suited for smaller motorhomes, trailers, and tenters. Bathrooms are basic flush with cold water sinks, and were very clean. Campground road is a good mile long so depending on your site location you could be a long way from bathrooms and dumpsters. Would come back again.

This is a national forest campground with hookups, not a resort. With that expectation, the sites are shaded by towering pines, were paved, long (could handle any size rig), and had great separation. Most sites appeared to have a slight slope front to back which would require minor leveling. The loop closest to the lake are dry camping while loops farther away have hookups. Bath houses are numerous and modern and kept clean. No showers. Dump is across the street and costs $5. Was able to get steady two/three bar Verizon signal. The nearest town, Susanville, is 20 twisting miles aways. Also, we encountered lots of mosquitos here. Summing up, if you are comparing to a resort and want convenience and amenities this would rate as average (5 or 6); if you rate it as a campground and place to relax it rates as excellent (9).

Nicely forested campground. Level asphalt parking pads. Full hookups available. Good site separation throughout the park, although A loop has better separation than B loop. Seemed like lots of camp hosts in park and they were very visible all day long. Bath/showers were clean. Would stay here again.

Beautiful park - there is a reason this is called the 'Crown Jewel of Oregon State Parks'. Excellent site separation, good working utilities, friendly hosts and rangers. Sites are level asphalt. Absolutely NO cell coverage here. Baths and showers were mostly clean, however lots of families and tent campers stay here thus the facilities get heavy use. More frequent cleaning could compensate for the heavy usage.

Date of Stay:

Nice quiet location. Park was completely full and still had good electric. Absolutely no cell coverage. Bathrooms and showers are older but kept clean. All sites are back-in, no pull throughs. Most sites are perpendicular to camp road instead of angled thus longer rigs could have problems. Nice hedging between sites provides great privacy. Small creek runs through park thus a bit buggy (mosquitos) if winds are calm. Sunset Bay across the road was a bit littered and not that impressive to us. Overall, a notch below other Oregon State Parks we have visited. If you have never been here, it is worthwhile to come. Glad we came but next time we travel the Oregon coast we will probably stay somewhere else.

Date of Stay:

Water and electric only. Very spacious sites, good park if you have pets. No checkin with host when arriving, you either self check at kiosk or go directly to your site if you have reservations. Extremely weak Verizon signal, barely one bar. About 150 yard sandy path the goes under Hwy 101 to small beach on ocean. Hosts and park rangers all friendly. Would stay here again.

Used as an overnight stay while traveling through Oregon. Small park in the pines. Level gravel sites. Full hookups. Strong electric. Good Verizon signal. Excellent wifi. Has cable but did not try. Only one bath and shower each for men/women, both very clean. Bath/shower was a combo room so if someone for instance is taking a shower, you have no access to toilet. Site separation range from good to just OK depending on where you are placed. Since we were overnighters in a shorter motorhome (29 feet) and arrived late in the day, we were placed in one of the lesser visually attractive sites. Manager/owner was friendly and works hard to keep park in good shape. Would stay here again if in the area.

Excellent State Park. Sites are level, bathrooms and showers both kept very clean. Sites are good size. Hedges between each site provides great privacy. A loop is sunnier and closest to ocean, B and C loops offer more shade. Good utilities, and some sites even have cable. Good verizon signal. Short 10 minute path to get to ocean. Would stay here again.

An OK park, just not our cup of tea. Easy access off I-80. Traffic noise is constant but was not a problem. Trains running about 5 times a night and blowing whistles was a problem. Just about time you would fall asleep, another whistle would blow. Site was decently level, with good separation and strong electric. Bathrooms could use some attention. Not sure if this is always the case or just bad timing on our part. Mens restroom was OK; women's had one of two toilets out-of-order and dirty showers. They make it a point to tell you no mats or rugs outside your rig yet the site next to us had a wood platform set up and was cluttered with propane tanks and plastic bins. Other sites similarly cluttered with charcoal bags, toys, beach towels, etc. Park seemed to attract clientele that had no respect for neighbors - time and time again kids, dog walkers, 20-somethings carrying there beer cans would cut through sites even if you were sitting out. Between less than ideal bathrooms and inconsiderate campers would probably look for another park if in area.

We really liked this park. Right off Hwy 101 so easy access. It also means you hear traffic noise but nothing that really bothered us. Excellent baths/showers. Level sites and utilities worked well. About 10 feet between sites but angled accordingly so we did not feel squeezed. Good cell signal and strong wifi. Park was very tidy and we felt very secure here. Would recommend as an overnight or as a destination to explore the area. Would come back.

A welcome oasis as temps outside were 105. Nicely shaded with mature trees. Park was maybe 2/3 full and had no issues with electric even though everyone was running air conditioners 24/7. Level paved sites with decent separation. Strong Verizon cell signal. Our site was towards the back of park away from the pool, playground, and lake thus a bit quieter. Check-in was a snap and office ladies very pleasant. Would stay here again if in the area.

Have stayed here a couple times. Most sites are well spaced. There is no shade but sites come with a covered picnic table. There is even an electric outlet by the table. Leveling will be needed at almost all sites. Its about 30 miles to nearest gas/food, so come prepared. Also, the only water in the park is a single faucet outside the bathroom. Bathroom is modern and was always clean. Not that big a park and being so far out, advance reservations are recommended (about half the sites can be reserved). Park was extremely quiet, both during the day and at night. Dump is at front of campground and has easy in/out access. The park visitor center is walkable from the campground. A great base camp if you want to see Canyonlands NP. We most likely will come back here again.

There are two options here: Side-by-side hookup sites that are extremely tight or dry camping that is well spaced out. We went with dry camping. Sites are paved but there is no shade, and it does get hot here. Bathroom and shower were clean. Shower was strange in that there was an overhead chain you would pull to trigger the shower head. It worked but was a bit inconvenient. Very scenic area. Would come back again.

Nice enough in-town park. Can handle big rigs but it can be tight maneuvering. Was packed with motorcycle/ATV/outdoor enthusiasts who were louder than what we are used to. Also seemed to be many unsupervised children wandering around. Being in-town I suppose there was nothing else for them to do while in camp. This may just have been bad timing on our part, but will probably look for something a bit quieter outside of town the next time in area.

Used the park for an overnight while passing though the area. Level gravel sites. Good working electric. Bathrooms and showers have a rustic look but were modern and clean. Staff was friendly and respectful. Being April, it appeared there were mostly traveling retirees staying while we were here mid-week. We had a back-in W/E only site. Back-in sites are designed so you can park your vehicle next to your rig (in front of your picnic table). Since both occupants on either side of us chose to park this way, it made our site feel a bit squeezed in. There is a nice grassy play area in the middle of park which was a nice spot to sit and relax with our dogs. Kudos to the park as it was real grass, not just a weedy field! Would stay here again if in the area but would probably opt for a pull-through to avoid possibility of neighbors that park cars tangent to their trailer.
