This is a FS campground and can be reserved but has some walk-in sites. It is located near the town of Gasquet, CA and is the largest of the 3 FS campgrounds in that location along 199. The restrooms and showers were clean. The showers were pay 6 min. for $1. The first loop was derivable with our 40' MH but the last loop was very tight with low overhanging branches. The sites were spaces nicely but lots of branches sticking into it, and the last loop was not very level. Had to tie the limbs back to get the slides out. With antenna and amplifier we were able to sometimes get a Verizon signal for MIFI but not the phone and not reliably. After a week there we were ready to get out to a sunnier place.

For a BLM campground it is a little run down, in need of a face lift but for the money it was a real bargain. The views are spectacular from all sites. The steep hill coming down was a little unnerving at first and the gravel road through the campground was disappointing but again the price is right. Great Verizon signal, long pull-through sites that were quite level for our 40' rig, nice Safeway in Hawthorne and a free dump station at the Shell station. No water or dump so come prepared.

We stay at a lot of government campgrounds and love them. This one may be the exception. First, there are two kinds of camping here: RV park and Campgrounds (no hookups). 3/4 of all the Campground sites are blocked off and in the two loops that are open the sites are very small. Our 40' MH had trouble squeezing into the larger ones. There is a lot of road construction going on which is a good thing to see but there is only one road in and out and there are 30 min waits going in each direction. The oleander bushes really need some trimming. Verizon service is OK 4G for data but only 1X for my 3G phone.

We were the only camper there for a 2 night stay. A few more signs would be helpful to find the campground but the GPS got us there OK. This would be a nice place if it were taken care of. The water leaked, some of the electric didn't work, the roads were falling apart. But it was quiet and easy to get to from I-10. Looks like it is used mostly for off-road vehicles a lot in the summer. No host but did run into a FS employee who told us where the dump station was because the sign was only for people leaving and it was partly fallen down.

We had no problem finding a site that fit our 40' MH, although they could do a little tree trimming. It did get quite busy though because some of the reserve-able sites where having the electric repaired and those reservations had to be moved to the non reserve-able area. Great views of the lake, quite and dark for star watching. Good Verizon phone and internet and strong 50 amp electric. There were no fire rings but lovely covered picnic tables and bq grills.

We love COE campgrounds. Large level sites with cabanas over the tables. Beautiful view of the Arkansas River and the barges going and coming from the locks. Except for the loud humming (mentioned by others) it is a very good place to stay for a few days. Good Verizon service.

We stayed there because of the Golden Age pass but like almost all COE campgrounds you get a lot for your money no matter what you pay. Verizon was weak but with the amp and antenna we got by. Very clean and level and large sites. Busier than I would have thought for Nov. still lots of empty sites. The sites have been improved and sit a little high with steep drop to the picnic table. Would definitely stay there again and again.

What a lovely little park. Glad I read about it on Review. Sites are long a level. Hosts are friendly and helpful. Verizon is good. It is a little tight driving around the outside of this little Chautauqua like community but we did OK in our big rig. There is no sewer but they come around twice a week for free with a honey wagon. The dump station is a little awkward. The trees between the sites are a little low and need trimmed but we did OK with 4 slides.

Just an overnight stay but it was easy to get it and out. Level at site directly behind the repair shop. Good Verizon.

Lovely COE park. Obvious improvements with larger gravel sites. We were in site #6 in the first loop and it was very level and very large. There was good Verizon service and good 50 amp electricity. You MUST be CAREFUL of the turn-around loop at the end of each loop. Even after we disconnected it was hard to get turned around.

We went there because of the previous comments made on this CG. At first we were very disappointed. The Garmin took us there on a road that looked like a path through a corn field with no where to turn around. There is infact a better route just up the road. The campground is grass sites and with rain it could be pretty bad with evidence of mud thru-out, but the electricity is good, it is very quiet and after walking around we found it to be VERY interesting. There was no one around but there were instructions to pick a site and someone would be around in the morning. Indeed, that person was the most pleasant and informative elderly lady who drove me to the office so I could pay by CC. Besides the roller rink (which still operates) and a church (still has services on Sundays and many weddings), there is an old hotel, miniature golf and an old mineral springs. This place is way out in the country and not easy to find but it is a gem that I would highly recommend you visit.

Just a one night stay to get some rest. Nice lake. Sites have just electricity, couldn't find the water. New gravel in the sites so it was a little messy. Found just one level pull-through big enough to fit us. Besides the $20 camping fee there is a $5 use fee for the park. The restroom look impressive on the outside but they were not clean and not well maintained. Verizon was good. This is a BOR park but managed by the state.

Sites behind the RV store and repair shop. Level, easy access FHU sites with 30amp electric. Good Verizon service. There were a few planes flying over but the didn't bother us. Permanent residents that bothered us repeatedly. Good cheap place to stop when we need repairs on the car.

Just a stop over on the way east. Plain dirt parking lot with FHUs. The laundry was very clean and reasonably priced. Sites were level. Verizon was strong.

We stayed here because we needed a spot for Labor Day weekend. As seniors we have a discount pass. The electric was 50amp but went off twice while we were there for low voltage. The sites are not level enough for a 40' MH with a long wheel base but we survived. There were supposed to be host working for the concessionaire but they were gone most of the time and consequently the restrooms and showers were not cleaned. People stopped at our site to ask how they were supposed to pay. The location is quite remote but there is a little store with the necessities close by. Verizon is very weak and we had to use an antenna and amp to get internet but no phone. ATT was strong.
