Please note that the rate I paid was with a AAA discount and includes taxes. As mentioned in previous posts, gravel sites and paved road. The showers were clean and worked well. They had pretty fast Internet with no connection issues. Verizion data also worked well. The whole park slants downhill from where you come in and I had to use about 4.5" of blocking on the down hill side to get level. The place is also hard to spot the first time you drive by. All in all, it's a nice clean park, close to sights. We would stay here again.

Wolford CG is located on a sage/grassland bench right next to a medium size reservoir with boat ramps and fishing 50 miles from Steamboat, Grand Lake, and Silverthorn. If you are into satellite TV there are none of those pesky trees to get in the way or reception or views. The down side is that there is no shade or wind breaks available; however, 50% of the sites have a flat roofed shelter over the picnic tables. The roads and sites are gravel and most not even close to level. The sites are laid out so the power hook ups are on the right side of the vehicles and located at the back of the site so you need a long cord to plug in. Most of the sites are 30 amp with only a few 50 amp hook ups. The restrooms are pit toilets with running water for the sink and no showers. They advertise camping at $20/day but they have a mandatory $5/day/vehicle fee which means if you are driving a MH with a toad you pay $30 and your neighbor in a 5th wheel only pays $25. For $20/night this was a great CG. However, with no showers, no water or sewer at the sites, the wrong location of the power post, and being 50 miles from anywhere with a decent grocery store, it is overpriced for the $30/night we had to pay.

If you're in a site with electricity one word describes this place. TIGHT!!. We had enough room to open our slides but just. If you have slides on both sides you'll have to figure out what side you want open because there's not enough room for both sides. You are also right on top of the the other sites. That said they have the nicest picnic tables I have ever scene. Good lighting under the shelter you are right next to and have outdoor power. The showers we clean and they had good hot water but you have to pull the chain down and hold it down to get water. This place fills up fast this time of year and we got the last 1st come site. The non power sites are much nicer and have more room. The generator hours are kind of screwy 12 noon till 4 pm. Probably the worst time of the day to run them if you want to hike or cook dinner. Verizon MiFi and phone works pretty well, the views are great, the roads and sites are paved,and the sites aren't all that level. We would stay here again if we're in the area.

Great place. Paved roads and paved sites reasonably flat but there are some on the side of a hill. Go to the web site and look at the picture and dimensions before you book a site. Reservations are recommended for weekends and pretty much from March through the summer season. It's the only body of water around this part. There's lots of nice hiking and if you want to paddle around it's a nice lake for that because most of the power boats here are here for the fishing. Verizon MiFi works well when the park isn't too crowded but gets very slow when all the sites are full. Showers had plenty of hot water and good pressure, the only downside is their industrial type shower head. It's a nice place and we'd stay here again.

As all the previous reviews state, this is a very nice park and probably the nicest in Ajo. A couple of things to note. Cash only no credit cards accepted. There is only 1 shower in each bathroom and they are a bit small, but there's plenty of hot water, good pressure, and the bathrooms are clean. Also, the address doesn't show up on my GPS, the Google Earth is wrong, but the map location on this website is correct. As the previous post indicates it's across the street from the IGA, Olsens's Market (which is in the GPS), But here are the coordinates : N 32.39294 w 112.87096 That is our location in the park at site 19. I'd stay here again in a heart beat.

The streets are paved; the sites are gravel. The roads are wide and it's easy to get around. They have a full activity calendar and a fair amount of longer term residents (months not yrs) the park is clean and the sites have enough room to put out your slides and awnings and not be in the next sites living room. The staff was friendly. It's far enough away from Phoenix that you do not have the maddening crowds but close enough to make a trip to town for supplies. The rate reflects the PA. They have internet access that you have to pay for and Verizon MiFi works OK. Propane is available on site and a large club house and other amenities. All and all a nice park and one of the nicer ones in the PA system. I'd stay here again.

First off you are in an area with very limited water due to the water grab L.A. made the early part of the 20th century and 1970 and the fact that it is in the rain shadow of the Sierras. With that in mind do not expect lush vegetation or manicured lawns. The camp ground has water enough for shade trees, a pool, a hot tub, full hook ups, and a nice shower. They have cable with limited channels and WIFI. Verizion also works fine here as does the MiFi. The roads are gravel as are the sites and they are level. The views are fantastic. The staff friendly and helpful and coffee and homemade muffins in the morning are great. They have a nice club house available complete with an industrial size kitchen. The rate reflects a GS discount. If I'm back in the area again I will be happy to stay here again. The only reason I gave it a 9 and not a 10 was that a lot of RV'rs have some unrealistic expectations about having lawns in an rv park in the desert and I did not want them getting their hopes up.

Ok you're 49 miles from Big Pine and 27 miles from Stove Pipe Wells. There is nothing but desert, steep roads, and great vistas. The only reason Panamint Springs Resort is here is that it has year around water available. They have full water and sewer hook ups with 50 amp service available. We were the only ones hooked up to the power and our surge protector kept kicking in. Their power comes from a generator at 128v and tends to spike. The water they have is not all that tasty but is safe. The roads and sites are dirt and rocks you have to watch overhanging branches and maneuver with care. The sites are reasonably level. Your cell phone will not work there. You can drive 8 miles one way and 12 miles the other and maybe get them to work. This is a good place to come with full batteries, fuel and water tanks and empty waste water tanks. The shower was clean and the water was warm to hotish. Fuel($6+/gal) and some limited supplies are available in the store. They also have a restaurant but we didn't eat there. Full hook ups are $30/night. I'd stay there again but I wouldn't make a habit of it.

The streets are paved and the sites are gravel and level. The showers are GREAT. Plenty of hot water, pressure and heat. The folks at the front desk were very friendly. It wasn't too noisy. About the only thing on the down side was the selection of channels on the TV are rather limited. But this is the only show in town but the prices are fair and the park is clean and well kept. I'd stay there again if we were in town.

This is a nice federal park and the rate was $12.50/night for power with the federal geezer card. It is right next to the Sacramento River and has some extensive bike and hiking trails that run through the park. The roads and sites are paved. We grabbed one of the electric sites and found that it had a bad leg on the 50 amp, and no ground (be sure and always test before you plug in). We moved to another electric site and it worked fine. The problem was fixed a couple of days latter. Verizon Wi-Fi works sort of. It seems to do OK in the morning but gets extremely slow at night. The showers have a code that you get from the host and cost 25 cents for 2-3 mins but the water is hot. The area is pretty quiet and it's a pleasant campground. If you have a boat, the ramps are very close. All in all, this is a nice spot and the only down side I see is that there is no dump station. I'd stay here again.

This is a nice basic RV park right on the banks of the Klamath rive. The sites are grass the roads are gravel. We had a site right next to the river and had great views and the site was level. Their wifi worked well as did Verizion MiFi. They have a club house with tv and some books. As I said this is your basic RV park in a great area. Apparently this place rocks during salmon season but when we were there we got winter rates and a PA discount of 50%. The only complaint I have is the showers. While they were clean, had great hot water with plenty of pressure they were small. They seemed like they were smaller than the one in our MH. I'd stay there again it's a great place to check out the Redwoods.

Paved roads and sites. Some of the sites are a bit tight and hard to get into and put out the slides due to trees. Also the sites are tight for parking the toad. Verizon MiFi works, sort off and very slowly. We were here at the end of October and had no problem picking a site that we would fit in. It's right next to the beach and our site was sheltered by trees which helped out because one night we had gusts of 60 mph, but the trees broke it up pretty well. Showers were great and spotless. The loop closest to the ocean seem to have the longest sites. One thing to note on all the Oregon State Park maps that they have online is that in addition to the location of the site it has the length so you don't have to guess. We'd stay here again in a heart beat.

I noticed that there were a couple of negative reviews of the park based on the the TV hook ups. This is the first state park I've been to in any of the 42 states we've been in that had TV hook ups. The sites were a bit tight with room for the toad, but it fit. The roads and sites were paved and the sites were pretty level. Good location close to town and sites in the area. The showers were clean and had plenty of hot water. Verizon MiFi worked great. The TV was nice, but usually I'm reading or on the computer so it was no big deal for me. For the price it's the best deal in town this time of year. I'd stay here again in a heart beat.

Paved roads and sites. Good power. They have shut down the loops by the beach for the winter but the loops with power and sewer are still open. The rate reflects the winter rate. Verizion MiFi works well here. This CG is well located to check out the sites in the area. The showers were clean but it was just a push button shower and all I can say was that it was warm but the ambient tempature bathroom did not encourage you to hang out in the shower too long. The trash is located by the front gate so it's a bit of a walk to the reycyling center. I'd stay here again.

This is a nice park located close to the beach. The sites and the roads are paved. It is listed as having 50 amp sites but as far as I could tell there were only 2 sites and they were located in the group camp area and had now sewer hook up available. The rest of the loops that were open either had no hook ups or full hook ups with 30 amp. A note on their sewer hook up. I have never ever seen anything like it. A pipe comes up about 10" out of the ground and makes a 90 degree bend. It looks like it's designed to fail if you hook up and dump a full tank. We just went down to the dump station on the way out. This place like all the rest of the CG's run by Washington State had pay showers. They were clean but the mens had no shower curtain but the area was enclosed and my cloths didn't get wet. Verizion MiFi worked well here. We'd stay here again if we were in the area.
