Rate reflects Resorts of Distinction (ROD) rate. This park is nicely situated, one exit west for those wanting to go to Los Algodones, MX. The utilities worked fine. This park is gravel, and most occupants observe the 5 MPH speed limit, so the dust isn't too bad, but if you are on the back row next to the BLM land, the dust from traffic driving by can be a real hazard. The hot tub did not have HOT water, and the jets did not work.

Date of Stay:

Beautiful area, very quiet and peaceful. This campground is a standard BLM campsite....nothing to write home about, everything is well used and well worn, but adequate for a day or two of exploring the area. Campsites and the road around the park are not level and are narrow for larger rigs. We did just fine with some finagling. There are a couple of pull-through sites, too. Read the website description for the location. Milepost 40.5 on Highway 93.

Date of Stay:

Not too bad for an overnight stay. The tree pools as described by others are exactly as they say. We used the pool that was 104F., and wonderful heat, and private. We could have stayed in the pool as long as we wanted, 20 minutes was plenty. As witnessed by others, the 30 amp power was sketchy; we used it anyway, but did not connect to the water or sewer. We had to back out of our pull-through site. Use this place only as an overnight stay and nice soak in the hot pools after a day of driving, don't expect good RV park amenities.

Amazon paid for our 9 week stay here while we worked for the Camperforce in Fernley. We paid only $100./month for electricity. Very quiet, very clean, nice management....they even delivered our mail. Electricity was perfect 50 amp power, water pressure about 60 psi, most of the sites are pull-throughs that are paved and well marked. Pads are concrete with nice metal tables.....the faux grass is actually not bad. This place is VERY clean with the exceptionally friendly staff.

Rate reflects Senior Discount +$3 extra fee for shoreline site. Beautiful setting. This is an old USFS campground and has many low hanging branches that touched the antennas even on the main road. These branches could have easily been removed, but the park personnel seem more anxious to drive around in their shiny trucks, than clean restrooms, empty fire rings, or check for who and who had not paid. We saw several people fail to pay. Thankfully, we scouted the place out before picking a site and with some negotiating and swerving around branches and other obstacles, we were able to get our 36' motorhome situated in a very stunning spot. Most of the sites are not level, they are narrow, and don't have much privacy. We did use the shower in the GH loop, and it was not clean, but lots of hot water.

Rate reflects $0 for ROD. We stayed here for a week, great access to the beach which is just a few miles away. We had no problem with the 30 amp power, it worked just fine with better than average voltage, no voltage drop was detected. The staff is very friendly and we really enjoy the area. The park itself is nothing special, but fit our needs.

Great overnight stop. Rate reflects Good Sam discount. The Buffet is a real bargain at half price on Tuesday and Thursday nights. Utilities were easily accessible, sites are all wide and pull-through. There's not a lot to look at here, but very centrally located in California.

Rate reflects RPI membership. We stay here every year for a week while visiting Seattle. This is one of our favorite parks. It is very quiet on the weekdays. Satellite can be iffy, but can be found with patience and a portable dish. Our site only had 30 amp service. There are a few 50 amp sites, but they have always been taken by long term occupants. The pool and hot tub are very nice, but very noisy and crowded on the weekends. There are no sewer sites, and the access to the sewer dump is tough because you have to turn around to get to the proper side. The sewer dump has many pot holes, mud, and disgusting green algae.

Nightly Rate reflects ROD. ($0) If you like signs with posted rules, this is your place, they are plastered everywhere! We tried the Tengonet Wifi service for one day to see how well it worked. It only connected to one of our 4 devices, and was so slow that it was virtually impossible to do anything on the internet. There are very few 50 amp sites with full hookups. The campground is very quiet, clean and well maintained. The office personnel were very courteous.

Date of Stay:

Staff was very courteous as we had to change sites to be able to get in because maneuverability for our 36 foot motorhome was a bit of a struggle. Sites are semi-level, all utilities work well. We found the walk to the beach was very short in spite of what other reviewers have said. The swimming pool is small, but enjoyable. The location is very convenient. We will stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Electricity went off at 6:45 am. Reset the breaker at pedestal but still did not work. Called the office and got a recording. Drove to the office at 9:00 am, and found they don't open until 10:00 am. At 10:00, called office, still got the recording. Finally, at 10:20, called office and they said they would send someone. 30 minutes later, a lady showed up. I watched her trip the breaker on the main panel, it wobbled and was obviously worn out. Reset the panel breaker myself 3 times. Will not be coming back to this park.

The management is very helpful. This is a pretty little park. Unfortunately, the noise from I-90 on one side, and the train tracks on the opposite side, lower the overall rating. We also felt that the fee was a bit high considering they offer no discounts.

Price indicates Senior Pass rate. Great stopover! All sites are pull-throughs, very wide and roomy with large picnic tables and fire rings. The water is not in each campsite, but easy to get. The dump station is only $5, and free to paid campers. Lots of wildlife, including pronghorn, osprey, deer, moose and heard the fishing is good. The camp hosts were fantastic, very helpful!

Date of Stay:

Price reflects the Passport America discount. Many local workers who start their diesel trucks at 6:15 am and leave at 6:45. A bicycle event while we were there, the showers were overflowing with people lots of dogs. Leash law was not enforced. All gravel sites, no "it" factor at all. Wi-Fi was fine even on the weekend. The staff was very friendly, but not sure why they need 4 women running the front desk.

The rate is RPI. This park was a real pleasant surprise. The owner/managers were very friendly, knew the area so well, and were very helpful with directions. Make sure you feed the fish!
