We have been coming here for about 5 years and have already made our reservation for the following year. We really enjoy this campground for the beach, the bay, the location and that is why we continue to return. It is right on Mission Bay, only 5 minutes to Pacific Beach, close to shopping, right on the bike trail and close to anything you want to do in San Diego. The sites are level and the hook-ups are easy. The bathrooms are always clean although there are leaves in the sites. The internet was fine but not high-speed. The whole park could use a bit of freshening up like paint but for a beachfront park, this is pretty good. Someone said there were rats but we have never seen rats nor lots of insects in the 7 months over the 5 years we have been here. The price above reflects the monthly rate. We have stayed here and will definitely stay again. Others continue to return year after year and we look forward to seeing our neighbors again.

We have stayed here before and will stay again when we are in the area. The sites are level, have good hook-ups and are spacious enough to keep your car hook-ed up if you wish. There are several trees for shade but the sites are mostly dirt. The owner is very conscientious: he gave us a site so that our front windshield was not facing the hot sun. There are no showers and bathrooms. It's not the prettiest campground in the world but is clean, handy to the highway, has 50A service, good hook-ups and was fine for us.

We enjoyed this park. We arrived on a Wednesday after the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta so there were about 15 RV's in the park. The sites are all dirt but level with a picnic table (pretty old and used), a cement pad and 50/30/20 amp electric service with water. There are 2 dumps - and we used the one closest to the campground. It was a huge cement pad with 2 dumps. We got there about 4:00, after the office was closed so found a spot under some trees, hooked up and waited for the camp ranger to roll around and we paid then. She gave us some maps of the area, a nice park brochure and a nice booklet about Gallup itself. We were extremely lucky when 2 balloons took off one of the mornings we were there. We volunteered to help them launch and they told us to hop in. Wow. We got an hour long ride over the Red Rocks. What a thrill and so unexpected. We got a key to the restroom from the ranger. They were clean but old. A nice park and I'll agree with others that it was a hidden gem but it could be dusty in the wind. Verizon worked but there was no over-the-air TV.

This is a fair campground with level, grassy sites. The hook-ups were easy and we had a picnic table at our site. This is not a destination park, there is no pool, no clubhouse, no golf course. However, it is close to grocery shopping and restaurants.and is the closest campground to visit the Ford Museum. There was a community garden with vegetables ripening. We picked a cabbage and some beans. Our neighbors went for the tomatoes. We're not used to walking around a campground and watching the elephants walk around, aerial artists practicing their routines and bareback horseback riders. But, the circus had a bit of time off before its next destination and were waiting here. Easy to get here and easy to get on your way. We would definitely stay here again.

Very nice Provincial Park in Ontario. We had a very private level grassy site surrounded by bushes and trees. 30A electricity and water with a sewer at the entrance to the park. We especially enjoyed the trails around the lakes and down to the beach. There are picnic areas on the beach also. The road into the campsite area is a bit narrow but quite manageable. We would definitely stay again.

We stayed for 4 nights in a level, stone, pull-thru site. We had a well-used picnic table and a fire pit. Grassy area around us. They have a small store in the office. Very full and a rally of 100 were coming the day we left. Close to many things to visit and see in the area.

We have stayed in this park at least once a year for 3 years and have always enjoyed it. This is a county park but it has so much available to entertain everyone: a marvelous hiking trail around the lake, a nice lake, a golf course, picnic areas, boating, birding blind, dog training area. Just a lot of things available. The pads are rock and, in the 5" of rain that we had over the last night and day, we were high and dry. Each site has a fire pit and a picnic table. We have been there on weekends and weekdays and it has always been quiet though full. You need to get there early in the week for a full-hook-up site during the summer. However, there are ample water/electric sites available. We have a 35' RV and our friends have a 42' motorhome. Neither of us had trouble maneuvering. The best place to hook-up a car to the motorhome is in the parking lot of the functions building. This is a real gem of a campground and we always look forward to staying here.

The sites here are level, large and come with a picnic table and fire pit. Water spigots are between every other site. We had terrible trouble with the electricity. We have a surge protector in our RV which kept shutting the electricity off with every surge that occurred - and there were a lot. Thus, we unplugged from the electricity at night and plugged back in when morning came. When we checked with the campground maintenance, they told us that New York allows a 10% difference - which is huge. There is a beach, a place to launch boats, a small store, and large fields for kids to play in. Over the air TV is good and our Verizon worked well. The campground is huge and, if you want a good place to walk, you can walk here. I doubt that we would stay here again with the electric problems. (Interestingly, we've stayed at 2 other NY State Parks this month and neither of them had problems with electric surges.)

Nice campground with large sites with a picnic table and fire pit. As others have stated, it can be difficult to level on several sites. Our neighbor's site is so unlevel that everyone who has ever had that site parks 30' away from the electric pole and has to have a lo-o-o-ng cord. Some sites are shady and some sunny. As others have mentioned, there are water spigots throughout the park but some are difficult to reach from the road. The road from Niagara Falls to the park is 'disgraceful' as one of the Park Rangers called it. Every joint in the cement is loose and pitted. That said, we would return to the park. The positives out weigh the negatives - if you can get the right site. We had no trouble with out Verizon coverage.

We had a back-in rock site that was level and had a picnic table and fire pit. The sites were close and we closed our window so our neighbors could have some privacy when they had company. The hook-ups are fine. Wi-fi was good even at night. The pool was nice and always clean. We found this campground very convenient for what we wanted to see in the area.

We liked this campground and would stay here again. It is pretty basic with a large, level, stone site, with water and electric (at our site), picnic table, fire pit, cement patio and wonderful trees shading the area. It is close to a walking trail along the river. There is train noise but not so loud that I couldn't sleep. Wi-fi is nonexistent at out site, they do have cable. Close to shopping. We had a back-in site but there are 5 pull-thru sites.

There are many things to like about this campground: the view from the marina, the many benches along the shore, the proximity to downtown and to the Willows, the beach, the crew that works here, the over the air TV reception and other things. We enjoyed our stay. However, as hard as the crew worked to clean the bathrooms and sometimes they cleaned them several times a day, they could not keep up with all the people who were at the campground. People who used the beach were not helping matters any when they did not wash their feet off with the spigot on the side of the bathroom before they used the showers. On weekends, there were parties in the pavilions, picnics all over the park, quite a few at the beach and then there were all the campers. On week-days there were school groups. And, there are only 2 bathroom stalls and 2 shower stalls for females and 2 of each for males. Way too few. They desperately need to build new bathroom facilities. We used the restrooms and showers every day but could have wished that there were more available. I would have liked to say that the bathrooms were 'sometimes' clean. But my choices above were either 'yes' or 'no' not 'sometimes.' The RV sites were level and had a picnic table with them although they were plenty close. There was water and we had 50A electricity but no sewer. The closest sewer is down the road a mile and into the town sewage facility. We drove our 35' motorhome to the sewage facility and turned around without problems. We asked about a honey wagon but were told there were none in town. Wrong. On the last day we saw one emptying another RV. So, yes there is a honey wagon in the area. Don't count on the wi-fi. Wi-fi worked great the first 10 days of our stay but was hard to get onto the last 3 days. Would I stay here again? If I wanted to visit the Salem area again.

Interesting campground and I find it hard to rate. The previous reviewer covered all of the varying site differences and road conditions so I won't cover them. There are charges for everything: pets cost $3.00 per night, showers cost money, the water slide costs money, they have 2 large clubhouses which are always locked unless you have paid for an activity in them. To use the free wi-fi, you must sit outside the store on picnic tables, at least it is under a roof but can get cold and windy when it rains. For $45 a night, I would think that one could use the clubhouse for wi-fi. Their website directions send you to Google which gives the wrong directions through a RI park and into the campground the back way. You cannot get to the park using these directions. I mentioned this to the office and the woman didn't seem concerned. Luckily I had called the office in advance and came in the right way. Our hook-ups were straightforward but leveling was a challenge. There is a well-used picnic table and a fire pit at each campsite. The sites were spacious and grassy.

We liked this campground and found it an excellent way to visit Mystic and New London. The sites are quite large in our section, and have easy hook-ups. Each electric pole serves for two RV's. There is no sewer but the camp will give you one free dump per 3 days of visit. However, the showers and bathrooms are quite clean and look fairly new. (I liked the fact that their honey-wagon is 'discrete' meaning that you can't see it - it is inside a white trailer.) The sites are level and come with a fire ring and a table. We found their wi-fi and cable to be quite good both in the evening and during the day. The pool is new and someone told me it is heated to 85 degrees.

We were here for 17 days both visiting New York and Hyde Park and West Point. This is a marvelous center for traveling to all three of these. The level, treed sites are rock, have a picnic table, spaced out, have good hook-ups with 30 A and are just delightful. There is no wi-fi and no cable but we had some over the air stations. Getting to New York took about 45 minutes by train and costs $5.00 on weekends and $9.00 on weekdays and between $30 and $40 depending upon your age. The station is about 1 1/2 miles from the park and there is ample parking (you might have to use the north side of the street.) There are nice trail through the park.
