Date of Stay:

Supposedly under new management but they are hugely incompetent. After calling three times and leaving messages, arrived to find they would not honor PA rate, despite the fact that they show a PA logo on their website and PA lists them on theirs. Check your rate well in advance to avoid bait and switch. Very average campground and overpriced for the area at the full rate. Would not stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Convenient stop off I-20. Passport America rate for 1 night, but $4.95 extra for internet (Tengo), a bit high. Restrooms were very clean and spacious. Laundry room fine. Staff was pleasant and welcoming. Dusty roads (probably very muddy if raining). Roomy to maneuver, even with a big rig. We would stay here again, but would like internet if it was fair.

Date of Stay:

Convenient exit off I-20, but a little bit of highway noise. Good location for Jackson or Natchez Trace Trail. Bathrooms are clean and spacious, sites are paved, but tight to negotiate for larger rigs. Located in mobile home community, but fairly well kept up/ Wi-Fi included and excellent. Staff was pleasant and helpful. Would stay here again, but price is rather high for what you get, even with Good Sam discount.

Date of Stay:

Owners were friendly and helpful. Convenient to Taos from the north side. AAA discount rate. No shade, gravel/dirt sites. Beautiful sunsets and mountain views. Bathrooms were spacious and spotless (one men's, one women's), store was basic but reasonably priced. Would definitely stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Kind of a tired, sketchy campground, but owners are friendly and accommodating for the most part. Previous review about dogs is accurate. Kind of annoying when the CG owners dog is running all over and leaving little presents outside your door, in addition to annoying other dog owners whose pets are tied up. Pretty wild "temporary" sewer hookups above ground (no plumbing code in SD, I guess...), but we chose no sewer and used a dump station instead. Base charge for campsite then electric & sewer are extra. Very convenient to Badlands NP. Small town is walking distance with general store and gas station. Tired bathrooms, but reasonably clean. Would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Previous review a little harsh. Not a bad little stop between Bismarck ND and Pierre SD. An open field just off the road north of town, with sign in front. Understaffed with pay box in building. Pull up, hook up and pay $20/nite, or $10/nite Passport America rate. Bathroom & Shower in steel barn building. A little dirty around the edges, but easily cleaned up to acceptable. Water & Electric OK. Dump station across field. Pretty quiet after dark when slight highway noise settled down. Adolescents nearby riding quads and shooting fireworks, since it was the 4th of July. All in all, not a bad stop for the price. No Wi-Fi. Would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Park is conveniently located right off I-40, close to Flagstaff. No 30 amp (adapter needed), only 50 + 20 amp hookups. Has some pretty unsightly permanent rigs. It's dusty, dirty, windy. Laundry, bathrooms and showers were tired and filthy. Only "light" cleaning every few days. Bathroom/shower area is shared with on-site Steak House restaurant (which serves tour buses), so be prepared for high traffic and filth during operating hours. Kind of bizarre. Staff was pleasant, but not especially helpful or knowledgeable about much of anything. Not recommended, but pricing is modest for area. Probably wouldn't stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Stayed one night on Passport America rate. Bathrooms, showers and pool area were spotless. Not especially fancy, but adequate. Lots of pull-throughs, convenient to highway. Extra charge ( $4 sign-up online) for internet, but it was fast and dependable. Would definitely stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Beautiful location right on the beach. $15.00 more for beachfront row of sites. Clean site. Paved pad. Nice host on-site. All CA State Campgrounds have jumped in price due to budget crisis, which allows private CGs to raise prices also. Consumer loses. Near charming town of Half Moon Bay - walkable. Nice walking and bike path through park. Would stay here again, although expensive for what you get. Area choices are ALL expensive.

Date of Stay:

Convenient to Sonoma wine country and charming town of Healdsburg with shopping. Nice, wooded setting by river. NO DUMP STATION OR SEWER HOOKUPS. Grass sites (a little tight) with paved roads. Small store on site. Management was very accommodating for early-season stay.

Date of Stay:

Lovely spot in the hills about 20 minutes from Monterey. As with much of CA, price just seems to keep going up because of budget crisis. Run by Monterey County. Supposed to go up to $40 soon. Extra star if you like race tracks, as it overlooks Mazda Raceway. Clean, well-kept, self-registration. Definitely would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

A nice little campground nestled in a grove of tall Redwoods. BEWARE of rain before or during your stay though, as it does turn into a muddy mess. Very nice, helpful management. Clean bathrooms (despite constant muddy footprints) and plenty of hot water for showers. Dump station on site. A little tight navigating between trees, but can be done. Not a lot of choices in the area that are any better. State park is expensive with no hookups. Andrew Molera SP is gorgeous for day hikes!

Date of Stay:

Perched on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean, this CG is a beautiful spot to stay on a trip along the coast. Kind of tight for big rigs and only a couple of suitable sights for them. No hookups, although water and flush toilets available. Reasonable rate for a beautiful spot to camp. No showers or hot water. Managed by a third-party, parks management company for the NFS. Loved staying here!

Date of Stay:

Located in the Los Padres National Forest, this pretty, old-growth tree/meadow CG is right off Rt 1 (east side) about 20 miles south of the town of Big Sur. Water is available and it has flush toilets, but no hookups. Very scenic area. Somewhat level in places, but not flat. A few sites would accommodate a 40', with toad unhooked. Nice host on site. Reasonable price for overnight in area. Managed for NFS by third-party parks management Co. A nice break along the coastal drive.

Date of Stay:

A hidden secret on PCH (Rt 1), just north of Rincon Parkway. This small county CG has spectacular views from the dry sites along the stone seawall, and is quiet, except for the continual roar of the surf. Fun to watch surfers morning and evening time. Sites can be reserved in advance ($45 Apr-Nov, $40Nov-Apr for full hookups - $30 Apr-Nov, $25 Nov-Apr for non-hookups). We dropped in for a night and stayed for a week. A few sites can take 40'+ rigs.
