The rate is $20 a night, but you only pay for six nights when you stay a week. Showers and bathroom were clean. The campground is basic but has everything you need. You have to be military or other military connects to stay here. We would stay here again.

This was a great little find. The property is extremely large and beautiful. It is comprised of several houses far away from the RV spaces. The park is about 30-45 minutes from the Kings Canyon Visitors center. They have a great little fishing pond where we had some pretty good luck. There was a little shop which provided free WiFi, phone (cell service works but is weak there) and free loaner DVDs. The owners are beyond friendly and helpful. There are cats and toys which kept my child occupied and happy. We were quite delighted and would stay again in a second. Make sure you ask about the creepy but pretty cool history of the park. It made the stay a bit more intriguing.

They raised their prices $5 a night at the beginning of the year. While you get great accommodations, it is is still a bit pricey. The sites are nice and level concrete slabs. The biggest draw is the smokey casino. We actually use this as a base camp to explore the historical area. The park has a nice pool. The office staff is very accommodating and friendly. We have stayed several times and would stay again.

We stayed here several years ago and decided to stay again. We were not disappointed. Our site was fairly woodsy. The wifi was great (we were next to the antenna though. The bathrooms and showers were immaculate. The one thing that brought me back though the was the fishing pond. They have a little pond stocked with trout that you can use for free. The fishing was good the first day, but lacked after that. We would stay again in a heartbeat.

We moved to this location after reading about it. You get what you pay for. We got full hookups close to the center of town. It was no frills, but the price was right. The location was quiet and secure. There are enough channels to get some decent television with your antenna. The only complaint was the need for a long sewer hose. Luckily I had that. Other than that, this place was great for the price.

Nice facility especially for the price, but need to have military affiliation or sponsorship to get on post. Military jets flying overhead were a plus and add to the ambiance. Sites are pull-through and hooks-ups are easily accessible. The employee at the desk was extremely helpful, and provided excellent tourist options. There is a newer and older section of the park. We were in the older section, which has a bit more shade at the right time of the day. Generally there is no shade. Very good location to the activities available in the Tuscon area.

Very clean park and friendly staff. The Wi-Fi was a bit slow. The showers and bathrooms were some the cleanest I've ever seen at a park. We would stay again.

Our price reflects the 'convenience fee" for making on-line reservations. We only stayed three nights, so we did fine without a sewer hookup. There is a dump station available. The lake had water, but we were advised not to eat any fish we caught due to DDT. We used the campsite as a base for other activities in the Carlsbad area. It was only 10 miles from the edge of town and a whole lot cheaper than the other commercial campsites. Our Sprint cell phone coverage was good. Well worth the price, especially if you are not staying for the lake.

Great military campground. Clean bathrooms and showers. Mostly retired military were staying so it was quiet. We would stay again in a seconds.

Date of Stay:

Great location overlooking the ocean. Easy beach access. The only complaint would be with the ants. They invaded out trailer the first night and stayed the whole time. We would stay there again.

Date of Stay:

Nice campground with sites spread out. Great off-season rate. We would camp here again.

Nice campground on the river. It's a little pricey for the off season, and they don't offer any Good Sam or AAA discounts. Nice facility overall.

The best way to Yosemite is to stay in the park. Lower Pines is one of the smaller campgrounds in the park, as much of it was flooded and destroyed in 1997. It also has the amphitheater and the ranger presentations at night. Otherwise they are all about the same in the valley. Yosemite is always beautiful, especially in the spring.

The price is pretty good considering you get free wifi and cable. Both worked well. It's very close to the park entrance and downtown stuff. The staff was very nice. We would definitely stay here again.

Overall, a decent campground. It was our second time staying there. We stayed in early May, avoiding the busy time. Had some luck fishing in their pond, so that was fun. The biggest gripe is that they want to charge $2.50 each day for TV! We spent family time instead. It was nice. We'd stay again.
