Will do for an overnight. Sites very close together and few pull thrus. Some of the back-ins were so narrow that a pop-up with a slide would have a hard time fitting. Pay for Wi-Fi. Golf nearby. Pay for guest - even if you are only being picked up. Not impressed, but if you want to be here, it will do - for an overnight.

Not a bad park. I suggest that you pay the little extra for a pull-through to have a better site with breathing room. Sites are bi-directional, so utilities for adjoining sites are between the two units, and length of sites means that you actually have a sense of spaciousness even on the site that shares the utility island. Pool and spa are open until 9:00. Fire department only 3 minutes away and the firemen are very wonderful. But that's another story.

This is a hard one to rate. As to the site: if you are OK without shade in the desert, these sites are top notch. After so many years of staying in campgrounds owned by people who don't seen to know what big rigs need: it was a treat. The low rating created by: Wi-Fi not working and the rally room was not open. Is that where the book exchange is? That's where the spa is. We did the dinner thing: perhaps if you are from Texas, you would enjoy the food. They are applying for a liquor license. Note: Beware of the wind here, it's ferocious. If the wind is coming in from the SW, turn the coach around. It tore the door from my hand, slamming it into the mirror and springing the hinge.

I've been in worse, so for an overnight, it's not bad. It's a shame that the owners don't take greater care of what could be a lovely park. Friendly enough though. Pool not opened because it needed cleaning. Park was full though, so perhaps they don't have to take care of things.

Rather overpriced considering no TV (not even local), pool not open even though it isn't end of season and they advertise pool open. Trains do run constantly (like every 3 - 8 minutes or so) but they don't blow their whistles, so its not bothersome. I'm quite surprised by how quiet it is. Dust and gravel sites with a little sage in some places. Keep doors and windows closed for easier breathing. Easy in/out for our big rig with tow. I can't imagine wanting to stay here more than a night, but for an overnight, it's OK I guess. Owner very friendly, but if that's all you have going for your business, it makes sense that she would give it all she has. One last note about the trains, because they are so quiet, it was a nice replacement for troublesome evening news. We were front row nosed to them, so we had an interesting show. Railroad enthusiasts would love this place, I think.

This was a nice little park. Our site was shaded, as were all of the pull-throughs that face the lake that was obscured by City Maintenance buildings. A large privacy-fenced lawn in front of the pull-through sites served as drive-out in the mornings and a lovely large lawn in the afternoons. Our site was gravel and all in our section had nice little patios with a small picnic table (seats 4) and a grill: all under a large shade tree. Beyond that was not another site: but more grass. So nice to relax after a day of travel and so nice to be "unsquished" after too many days of bad RV parks in CA and OR. The only downside is that if you are not here by 5:00, you aren't going to get in. And if you want to use the bathrooms, you have to get a key from the office before it closes. Price includes taxes: don't remember pre-tax price.

Nice little desert RV park. Pretty, friendly, welcoming, and a nice pool. Downside: sites set up so that none of the lovely landscaping offers any shade.

What a dump. Sites are small and not level. Pretty filthy and unkempt. Don't bring your big rig here if you have alternatives available. We moved around a bit before finding a pull-through that would hold our 36' plus tow length, but the front of the coach is jacked up so high that we had to put lumber under the portable step to make it possible to get in and out. (We have a diesel so and the door is in the front.) There is no room for a chair or picnic table beside the coach because the sites are so narrow. They are cut into the side of the dirt hill that is the park. This lousy site was not because of lack of available spaces. The place was almost empty. Its because of shameful park management and dishonesty on the part of people who pretended not to know that they have almost no long or level sites. The pool is pretty and a swim would have been nice in this place, where late September (9/29) brings temps of well over 100 degrees. Unfortunately, it closes at 6:00PM. We were told we would have on-site Wi-Fi, but even at the site closest to the office (that we eventually settled into), the signal was so weak that it came in and out. At least the TV is somewhat decent, with clarity on its 14 stations. The owners of this park should be ashamed. The fact that they aren't, speaks volumes about what to expect. Make this the park of last resort. It is the second to the worst campground I have ever been in during my five years of full-timing.

Read the past comments. This is a parking lot with sites so narrow that fire code prevents you from using your awning (even window awnings) unless you rent two adjoining lots. Still, it's the location that will always bring people back, in spite of the down-sides. HINT: Try to arrive during the day when others are out touristing. That way you'll have more room to maneuver into your slot. Not all sites are equal in width, and when everyone is home, with toads and trucks parked in front of their units, it can be a delicate operation: especially if you are between two large fifth-wheels with many slides and a large truck. One person said that the lady in the office was snippy. I found her fun, friendly, and very helpful: ready with plenty of information. Cable TV is terrible: few local channels. The lady in the office even apologized for it before handing me the cable sheet.

This is a new park. It's not complete but what is done is first class. Make a point of visiting the gift shop. It's a good one and not over-priced. Trees are just babies, so no shade, but the park is surrounded by trees. Redwoods on one side and a mix on the other. Good for satellite systems. Owners are super friendly and helpful. When this park is done and the trees grow up, it will be a really fine park. It's certainly a good one already.

Wow! What a great park. We nosed in for a magnificent ocean view and only 50 steps or so from the beach. Level concrete pads, with no shade, but who needs it here? Super friendly owners and wonderful facilities. Verizon signal doesn't come in (phone or Wi-Fi) but you can use the campground's phone and they offer Wi-Fi. A little pricey, but for this treat, it's worth it.

Let me begin with the part of this place that makes it spectacular and worth driving to just for this. It's not the RV sites with hook ups. They're just OK. Nothing to complain about, but not great either. It's the part of the park that is a grove of giant redwoods. That's the kamping and kabin part. It is the most wonderful place for taking a walk. Almost as wonderful as the nearby Howland Hill Rd (a 10 mile drive) which is an experience every nature lover should have. So, you won't complain much about the RV part of the park, but the rest: top notch!

I've been reviewing parks for four years now and find it interesting how my values have changed with the times. Four years ago, I would have rated this place a 3 because of the narrowness of the sites. Now I call it a 7. What has changed? As more and more RV parks work to cram more and more big rigs into too-small places, what WAS offensive is now what IS expected. Still, we did have a two foot strip of grass and it is obvious that management really cares about the park. The grass was "lush" and the cable selection reasonable. I would stay here again for an overnight. It's surely not a destination place.

We reserved a 50 amp site. We called back to confirm the 50 amp site. We got there and were told that the people we had talked to made a mistake. Our reservation, we were told, was not for a 50 amp site. If you are a gambler, this place will suit you well. Shuttle service will take you to the casino and back. If you don't gamble, see if you can find better. No trees and too few 50 amp sites in this hot, desert climate.

Great place for an overnight. Not a place for enjoying the outdoors. Sites mostly level. Door opened onto a four foot wide concrete sidewalk that served as our patio (no picnic tables). Next to that about two and a half foot strip of grass. All sites curbed. Though too narrow for our tastes, the campground was friendly, helpful, and and a good lay-over. Biggest downside - poor cable.
