This is an older park badly in need of attention, with many permanent campers with old, poorly maintained camping units (tarps, etc.) The shower rooms were in need of maintenance and a good cleaning, but had good hot water and paper supplies. The sites need improvement and some cleaning as well, but we were provided the use of an adjoining site for our toad as the park was not near full. We initially had some sediment in our water, but once it was run for a while it was good. That being said, the setting is terrific, right in the middle of redwoods and next to the creek down a steep embankment with steps to the water. The Roaring Camp Railroad is nearby with accompanying train whistles and was a very entertaining ride to Bear Mountain. A short distance to Santa Cruz and the boardwalk, etc. The owner was very helpful in providing local information about activities, and the cable was good. We would stay again when in the area.

We spent one night as Passport America guests, and found this to be a good overnight stop. The shower facilities were clean and water hot. We used a satellite for TV and the sites were long pull-through's (up front), so we wouldn't even have had to unhook had we not done some sightseeing in the area. Limited road noise and some permanent campers. We would overnight here again.

We stayed here early off-season and there were only about four campers, and in response to the basic nature of the park, management said "This is not a resort," but we were very pleased with the park overall. The park is set up so that a motorhome can nose-in to the river (right on the bank) and we awakened each morning to birds on the water and in the shrubs, fog lifting off the water, sunsets at night and a general sense of tranquillity not to be expected right on Hwy 101. The facilities are old, but very clean, with plenty of hot water. The cable was spotty, but we used a satellite so only used local news in the evening. Management ("Bob") was very friendly and allowed us to pick any of the paved spaces we wished, even allowed us to move to a second "better" space. Lots of beauty to visit in the area. We would stay here again.

Membership park, we used Coast to Coast. Very clean, both open and treed areas, gravel sites with lots of grass, very family friendly with putt-putt, fishing, swimming pools, arcade games, etc. Very friendly, accommodating staff. Clean showers and restrooms, will soon have WiFi. Occasional train, but very quiet rural setting about 1/2 mile from highway (old Rte 66).
