Lovely park, very friendly staff, uncrowded in the spring. This park is adjacent to Big Sur Campground & Cabins and it's possible to walk from one park to another. We hated to leave. Would be a "10" if we'd had a a sewer hookup. Lack of cell phone and wifi was a plus for us, but if you have teenagers traveling with you, they might not agree. Drive time from here to the Monterey Bay Aquarium was 40 minutes, to Pfieffer Big Sur State Park 5 minutes.

We stayed overnight on the way back from Easter, in Northern CA. Campground is several miles off the highway. Self-registration was in progrees and reservations are non-site specific. Campground not very well marked for ease of site identification in the dark, but ample and level. We pulled in around 10 PM and found a site where the nearly-full moon shone on the water, directly across the camp road from the toilets. Pit toilets, very clean. Hookups for water and electric only. Lovely in the springtime, probably quite hot and dusty in the summer.

Though location is listed in Anaheim, this park is in the very east end of Anaheim, I'd really call it Anaheim Hills. 20-minute drive to Disneyland and other theme parks. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Spacious grounds including several group camp areas. Bathrooms and showers plentiful and clean. Sites not crowded too close together though riverfront sites book well in advance. Looked to us as though there were a number of long-term renters here. New camping cabins look really nice. The Oct. 2007 fires came right to the riverbank on the north side, but the area is still wooded and quite pretty. The noise where we were located from the 91 freeway was noticeable, but didn't really detract from our enjoyment of the space. We were here President's Day weekend for our first trip in our travel trailer, and it was everything we needed. Lots of retail and restaurants in the area, so you don't have to cook unless you want to, and can get to a theme park or a movie easily if you wish. There is what looks to be a really nice bike trail that routes through the campground. We didn't use the pool as it was February.
