Date of Stay:

After reading the earlier reviews, we almost decided not to stay here. Glad we did, anyway. All sites are pull-throughs, a little narrow, but adequate. Most have a semblance of grass between sites. Rate I posted is the Passport America rate. All sites have full hook-ups. Check-in staff very friendly, we had no interaction with other staff. Lots of things for kids to see and do. Two restaurants on site. The park was dead quiet after dark, no rowdy parties. A perfectly adequate over night stop. We would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Very adequate for an overnight or to explore the nearby mountains. Very friendly and professional staff. Long pull-throughs will accommodate the longest rigs. Easy on/off I-80. Gas stations nearby. Only downer was the dumpster was by the office, and our site was at the other end of the park. No big deal, though. Gravel interior roads, gravel sites with an attempt for grass by your site.

Rate reflects Good Sam discount. Cable TV only works on digital TVs; your converter won't work as you must borrow a special converter from the office (if it's open). The previous reviewer hit on the pull-throughs. Super narrow pads, arched front to back and side to side. A challenge to get parked and level. Lots of raised concrete curbs to eat your tires if you are not careful. I'll find another park, even for just an overnight stay.

A real gem adjacent to lots of sightseeing. Popular with Europeans in rental RVs. Adequate size spaces, all back-ins, center ones have a big grass yard behind them. Long Beach and LA bike trails go right by the park. Management was nervous about bike theft; we brought ours in each night. Only negative comment would be about the laundry - not too clean, old machines. We did no expect such a nice park in this area. We would come back again!

Date of Stay:

Totally full when we were here. Lots of kids, lots of tents in the tent area. Seemed to be a popular summer vacation spot. Lots of park sponsored activities, huge playground, Saturday band on the office patio, hay wagon rides. WiFi is provided by Tengo. Verizon signal is strong, internet 4G. Did I mention lots of kids? Drive very slow! For the amount of campers, park was very clean. A huge fenced in dog park is available.

This is a county recreation area - roads are paved, most sites are fairly level, albeit very close together. We were in Blue Jay 6, plenty long enough for our 36' coach and toad, but the trees made it the hardest back in spot we've been in our RV'ing history. Being July, the parks was full; we could only get one night. Lots of wildlife, too. Scenery was great but the lake is very low. Hiking trails all warn of bears and mountain lions. We saw lots of deer. Extra charge ($3.50 ea.) for our two dachshunds. No over-the-air TV or Verizon.

Parked was packed; I guess we were lucky to get one night there. Sites share a pedestal, one rig N-S, the other S-N. Adequate space between neighbors. Friendly staff, seemed like there were lots of rules and extra charges. It bills itself as "voted best medium size RV park in California" -- I think it was just OK. The beach is about 1 1/2 miles away, and that is an Off Road Vehicle beach. Oceano does not offer much in the way of beach community stuff, but Pismo Beach is nearby and Arroyo Grande is very close. There are lots of RV parks nearby, this is one of the nicer ones. There are hundreds of RVs stored nearby, too.

Mostly filled with permanent campers. Lady who checked us in had no personality, park workers friendly and full of information. There were two long pull through sites, we had one of them. There is grass by the sites. The park is surrounded by farm fields; when we were there it was very windy and dusty. Oh yes, a nearby train track and HWY 101 are a 100' away. An OK overnite stop, but price seemed out of line.

This is an old park, 50 years old, according to manager. The spaces next to the lake do not have sewer hookups, while the spaces across the road do. Not all spaces have 50 amps, be sure to ask. We stayed in #14, which had 50 amps and a cement patio. However, site was so short, patio was not at our door. Also patio was much higher than parking area -- don't run your tires into the edge! Manager was very helpful, the lake is beautiful, and there is a great bike trail on the west side.

What a find! Our new "must stay" when traveling Hwy 99. Good spacing, paved interior roads, sand parking, ample room for slide outs, a restaurant/grill on site (good food, too), long pull thrus - Just a really nice park. Their map/info page is labeled "Guidelines For A Pleasant Stay" instead of "Rules". I think that pretty well sums up the management. We will stay here again.

Rate reflects Good Sam discount and two small dogs. We stayed here about five years ago and decided not to return. However, with family nearby and favorable reviews, we gave it another chance. Glad we did, as there have been many improvements and it is now a nice park. We had grass on both sides, ample room for slide outs, and a site that was easy to get level in. Restrooms, while clean, are old, but I'm told that is this winter's remodel. We'd stay here again.

You might ask - "How can it be a 10 without sewer hookups?" Easy -- sites are spacious, paved, and wide enough to park your car next to your rig. At least 20' separation between sites, and landscaped mounds and to the feeling of privacy. Close to downtown, yet on the water. Good over the air TV. Well maintained, and the lady who checked us in could not have been more helpful. The kind of park where we wished we could have stayed a month. We would go out of our way to stay here again.

I can't add too much to the previous review. The river is part of the Erie Canal and occasionally gets some interesting traffic. The person who checked us in was very friendly and accommodating. She took our reservation over the phone and did not ask for a credit card -- just asked us to call her if our plans changed. The interior roads feature some very tight turns -- a challenge if you want to avoid driving on the grass. AC voltage is low, we measured 112 V at our site, # 57. Every thing seemed to work OK, though. Lots of room between sites -- a very pretty park. We'd stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Park was bought by current owners two years ago. Great family, very helpful. Sites are grassy, huge for an RV park. Lots of seasonals, but everyone made us feel welcome. Out in the country - very quiet. About 8 miles from shopping. Several over the air TV stations available. We would stay here again.

Don't know how this gets such high ratings by Good Sam. Big rig sites are east-west, and very close together. Restrooms and showers were clean, but old. Laundry facilities were barely adequate, with two of the six dryers out of order. Lots of recycle containers around the campground, but one dumpster for garbage near the office. Staff friendly and helpful with tips for the Cabot Trail.
