We used to go here all the time, but this was our first visit back in almost 10 years. Good old Sam's. It has not changed much at all. The hot tubs and the showers have all been redone. Also, they are not as permissive about cigarette smokers as they were, which is a good thing! One of the reasons we stopped going was all the people smoking in the spa area. The hot tubs are great and everyone is very friendly.

This is a very nice county park - on the edge of encroaching suburbia. The park has a lot of trails, some ponds and is nearby a large old adobe. We were there on a holiday weekend, and it was mostly full, but with some of the quietest campers I have ever had the privilege to camp among. We were there to go to Legoland, which was about 25 mins drive away.

After 3 weeks of traveling in Utah, I was thrilled to be in an RV park with paved roads. The sites a big, mostly very long, but with a decent separation from side to side. The park is well maintained. The bathrooms were the nicest I think I have even seen in an RV park. The laundry room is a bit small (and some people suspected non campers were competing for the few available machines). I loved that it was an easy walking distance to the small town of Williams (try the Thai Restaurant). It loses two points for lousy WiFi. Really, they should be able to do much better.

It is a nice place in an amazing location, but it is only $2 less than Watchman which is close by, but they get so much more - including modern bathrooms and electrical hookups. The real problem is that there are no reservations, but this place is very popular, so weirdness happens - coming in after 10am? well, you will need to find something else, and then show up at South first thing in the morning to get a spot. This makes for a cumbersome first day or two. The hosts do everything to help, though. If it were me, I would up the prices at Watchman and put the money into the infrastructure at South.

It is another gravelly lot with RV sites. But, it is clean and well run and in a great location. The sites are small. Check out the Outfitters across the street and down the hill just a bit - they had great pizza. There is an ok grocery in town and a cool gourmet place.

It is difficult to rate this place, but I am giving the review I wish I had read. Yes, the bathrooms are clean, but careworn. Yes, there is internet, but it was iffy at times. Yes, the people running it were very friendly, but I wish they had more of a presence around the actual park. It is near a busy road. Now here is what I wish I had known when I booked: This is a great park if you are into jeeps or dirt bikes. You will be welcome and among friends. If you are not a OHV person, this place will be hell. While management does not allow OHVs to drive around the park, they certainly will be coming and going. The entire park is dirt and rocks, and with all the OHVs and big trucks that means dust. I could not cook outside of my rig, because the air was so dirty. There does not seem to be any limit to how many vehicles someone can have at their site. My last night I got a neighbor with a truck camper pulling a long trailer carrying two jeeps. Both jeeps were taken out and one of them actually ended up on my site. The other one was parked sideways, so also partially on my site. I did not say anything because I was leaving the next morning, but why was no one from the office telling them not to do that? The sites are pretty small, but so over parked they can be claustrophobic. I would never go back there. I think this is the worst place I have ever been to.

I think this might be one of my favorite CGs ever. It is first come, first served, so we got there early and had a choice of several sites, but it filled up early. We planned to stay three nights, but ended up staying six. Maybe it is because it is surrounded by natural beauty, but this is the friendliest place ever. I ended up getting to know at least 10 other campers quite well. There are some wonderful hiking trails near the CG, or you can drive. There are no showers, but there are places in nearby Torrey where you can shower. The visitors center has a list.

I really liked this place. Since we were only going away for a one night trip I asked if it would be ok if I checked in at 10am on the saturday and leave about 5pm on the Sunday, and they said they were fine with that. I asked if I should pay extra (or even and extra night) for the late departure on Sunday and they told me it was not necessary. The place was mostly empty so it was very quiet. It was fun to see the gliders taking off. I wished I had seen one land. We will go back, because this is a great place for a one nigher - about 1:45 hours from home.

We showed up on a Thursday morning at 9:30am. All the hook up sites were taken, but there were still a half dozen dry sites. Ours was right in front of the ocean. We could see crashing waves from our bed window. This is a very friendly place. I think a lot of locals come often, and over the years get to know each other, but everyone is friendly to newbies likes us. I suspect it would be hopping on the weekend. I really hope to go again sometime.

I found this campground from reviews here, and I was not disappointed. I have camped in many deserts in AZ and CA, and this had to be the prettiest and lushest desert I have ever seen. You are also 10 minutes from shops and amenities (and a good library in Mesa) The sites are spacious and well spaced. Bathrooms are good. It was very quiet - except for the coyotes. If you are reasonably fit, try hiking to Wind Caves.

This is a friendly and very well kept RV park. I am marking it down for three reasons. 1) It was pricey. 2) The Wi-Fi was not very good. 3) And it's noisy. I asked for a quiet site, and they put me in the back away from the pool, but that bordered a hotel parking lot, with a bar. Very noisy! Also they say they strictly enforce quiet time, but the group of 3 sites across from me had a pretty loud time of it until past 11pm, and no one stopped them.

This is a lovely park, and an easy drive to the Plaza area - there is also a city bus stop right in front. If you need to do shopping or run errands, everything is nearby. It is very clean and well run. The people in charge are friendly and efficient. I think the sites near the front would be noisy, but we were further back and had little noise. Although the attached Mobile Home park is 55+, the RV park is not, but they do not allow children. My only complaint is the Wi-Fi. I think if parks say they have Wi-Fi, they should have good W-Fi. This is an 11k connection, and usually a very weak signal.

Please note. This Campground reopened in March 2011. This is our first visit to this campground, so I cannot comment on how it used to be, but I found it in excellent condition. Although the website said there was no water at the sites, there was a working spigot at each site. Showers and bathrooms were clean and in good order. This is in a lovely location. Although it is only a few minutes from the highway, it seemed like we were far away from it all. They had not yet remarked all the hiking trails, but that should be soon.

We just came back from five nights, and were very impressed with this park - though it is what I have come to expect from Arizona State Parks. This is a clean, well run park. Great showers/bathrooms. Everyone was very friendly. We were there in some very rainy weather, and we needed to know what the weather would be like on the drive home. They looked up the information on the internet for us, and convinced us to stay another night. Lake Havasu City is an easy 10 miles drive.

The rate included the KOA discount, but also included an extra $20 a day for my son's tent (in our site). I thought that was too much, and I dropped them in the ratings for that reason. We really liked Costanoa! It is an RV park, not a state campground, so the sites are smaller, but bigger than most RV parks. We camped in the Coastal Village Loop, and the sites are deep, if a bit too close together. Also, the sites on the even numbered side have the hookups rather distant (almost as if they put them on the wrong side, and rectified it by just having you use the ones on the correct side, even thought they were sort of in the neighbors site.) Whale loop is for pull thoughts and those sites are pretty small, but handle large rigs. Seaside Sites (which are no closer to the beach than any others) are considered 'deluxe' and cost more. I am not sure they are worth it. I think Coastal Village is the best of the RV loops and the only one they will allow tents along side your RV. We were here for 8 days. On the one weekend we were here, it was wall to wall kids. I enjoyed watching/hearing them, but if you do not like kids, you might want to stay away. During the week it was very quiet. The area is amazing. It is a walk to the beach, but it is a wonderful hike over dunes, with wonderful bluffs and coves. The store and restaurant is expensive, so we did not use them.
