We stayed for a week in April 2016 and our price reflects that. There are 4 kinds of sites: back in on the side, long pull-throughs in the middle and either back-in sites on the water for 5th wheels OR pull-in sites on the water for motorhomes. How cool. We had a motorhome site which we pulled into and our view out of the front window was exquisite. How many other RV parks have this option? There are 50A hook-ups, cable and good wi-fi (although there are only about 15 other rigs here using it but the wi-fi towers are throughout the park.) Our site is mostly level, we have a patio pad and the site is mostly small rocks so we aren't dragging in dirt or dust. This is definitely the place to stay in town for the view and the facilities. Yes, the foghorn sounds every 7 seconds but, remember, it saves lives. It never bothered us. We also enjoyed listening to the sea lions. But the view - awesome.

My rating is judging this park for what it is: a campground with great access to San Francisco. It is, as others have said, a parking lot with red-painted railroad ties to separate sites. The sites are level, are on rocks so you're not tracking in dust and dirt and the hook-ups are easy. The bathrooms are cleaned every day, the staff is fun and full of knowledge about the area. It is extremely close to shopping and within walking distance to Trader Joes. But, the best part is that it is within a 15-minute walk to the ferry to San Francisco and within a 15-minute drive over the bridge if you want to take your car to the city. We like to hike and it is close to a plethora of hiking locations, in China Camp SP, or in Marin Headlands or in Point Reyes National Seashore. If you like lighthouses, there are two within a 40-minute drive. There is a wetlands trail right outside the park which can be a short or a long walk, depending upon which route you take. There are bike trails all over the area for walking also. We liked this park for what it was - location, location, location and we'd definitely come back. Our cost was for a month and we were given an extra site for our Jeep.

We've stayed here before and will stay again. The sites are level and the hook-ups work well. The bathrooms are clean and so are the lodges - both family and adult. There have been quite a few improvements since we were here last: new pool, new 'grass' on the miniature golf course, nice pool tables, and probably others that we did not notice. They serve breakfast on Wednesdays and have other activities throughout the week. Our Verizon wi-fi worked well and so did cell service. You can park in the shady sections on in open sections. We especially enjoyed the view of the mountains out our windows.

We've stayed here before and will stay again - it is one of our favorite campgrounds. We love the trees, the hiking in Palm Springs and the delightful sunshine and warmth. Do the trees present a bit of a problem with parking? Ah, you have to watch them but most people I noticed didn't have any problems parking. If you're concerned, try the pull-thru section on the left hand side. Pull-thru have 30A, back-ins have 50A. There are lots of activities but most people seem to be enjoying their own. The pool was filled the several times we walked by, the library is nice and has lots of choices and the bathrooms are always clean. Shopping is nearby and the entry-exit from Rt 10 is very easy. Yes, there is more dirt and sand than usual but it is a drought in southern California and has been for several years. And, yes, the sand will filter in through your closed windows if it's breezy. There.

We are Thousand Trails members so we used this as one of our 50 free stays. We have camped here before and will do so again. Most sites are level, we had a picnic table and a fire pit. We like the trees in the area and, actually, wonder how they have survived so well during this drought. And, yes, there was little grass and mostly dirt but then, it is a drought and there has been no rain to speak of for several years. We like the park and the campground atmosphere. The bathrooms and laundries are always clean, the store was well stocked and the pool looked nice though we did not use it. We like the family atmosphere and the kids riding their bikes around. All in all, a pleasant place to stay. By the way, we have used this campground for several overnight trips into the Los Angeles area. One time we drove into Long Beach to see the Battleship Iowa and stayed in the Queen Mary. A wonderful trip. Anther time we drove into to the Huntington in Pasadena and stayed over night. Absolutely marvelous museum. Richard Nixon's birthplace and Presidential Library are in Yorba Linda, a day trip. You can also take a day trip into Temecula or to Idlewild.

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.
