The price is much less if you stay for a month or more. We are here for 6 months. We love it, the folks are friendly and the grounds are beautiful. The park is complicated until you have been here awhile and the spaces are difficult to get into but there is an assistant. We love the dozens of activities, cards, pools, closeness to everything, dog areas, people, etc. We will return for the beautiful winters here in Arizona.

Very old park, we had a pull thru across the city street from the rest of the park, I think that is where the overniters stay: tight, long pull thru. Bathrooms are very old and funky and the shower costs a dollar. The manager is quite friendly. Worth the money. No internet or TV but we were able to receive a few channels on our antenna.

Cute little park with many full timers. We had some troubles with the fees. We were charged $5.00 per day for electricity and there was no hot water in the shower, which is why we stopped instead of boondocking. Made us pretty mad; they were having a temporary problem; would have appreciated knowing that beforehand. No TV. The manager is the nicest person to deal with thru email, etc., and was kind enough to send us a $6.00 refund for the electricity charge and the lack of hot water in the showers. She is a doll.

We think this is an average park and a little over priced...Wifi is dicey, no place to put your clothes in the shower area, "resort" is a stretch...management was nice. It was quiet, lanes were muddy after recent rain, full time areas mostly looked neat and well kept.

This campground is very small and we were told at the park entrance we would not be able to get our rig into it. We did find a spot for our 29 foot 5th wheel but we had to unhook. The asphalt is breaking down on the spurs, probably the entire campground needs to be revamped for larger RVs. There is an RV park nearby which is more expensive than this campground which gives us 1/2 price for out National Park senior pass. The area is beautiful, the bike trails are wonderful (and in wonderful shape) and the old hotels and gift shops are great. Can't beat Grand Canyon.

This park is half way fixed up and revamped and we didn't notice that so our site was unlevel and old, be sure to stay to the right when driving in and you will rate it a 10...they have reworked everything: level concrete sites, long enough for any rig. The bathrooms are still old. The lake is maybe a mile away now, it is sad.

park is closed, hotel was sold.

We have stayed at or visited the other regional parks in the Phoenix area and we like McDowell Mountain Regional park better than this. This is a long drive into the campground past the entrance. The entire park is on the side of a hill, which makes biking down to the nature center/library a problem. Good hikes around the place, with some strenuous hikes and bike trails included. I understand they recently added electricity and water at individual sites which is wonderful. Bathrooms are old, probably original and clean.

I will repeat what a previous review from a long time ago says: very cute and kitschy and wonderful owners who give each and everyone a great amount of attention. You are greeted warmly and taken to your site and then you return and pay. You can have satellite and the gentleman will bring the dish and set it up for you if needed (we needed it as the cord was damaged). I would highly recommend staying one night in this RV park just for the experience, and reservations are recommended.

As has been stated before, this is a large parking lot type of RV park. It is not near the river nor do you have much of a view unless you walk around the park. The permanent residents leave out tools, stuffed furniture, trash. That part of the park is a real eyesore. The manager was quite friendly and helpful to us. The pool and hot tub, although small, is very clean. We will be looking at other parks in the area. It is okay for the price and for an overnight stay.

This is a rather unique campground in the winter. The river is a dry sand bed, but apparently is a full river in the summertime. I don't know if that applies to the current drought in California. This is an old campground with old restrooms and the laundry is tired and worn. The layout is nice, with lots of room between sites on grass or maybe a cement deck area (if you are lucky) We enjoyed the peace and quiet, the safety of the coded gate with gate card (you can enter at all hours with the gate card). I would return again although it is a few miles off Hwy 99 and away from town.

We have stayed here out of necessity three times. The park is a mess with overgrown weeds and seedy buildings with lattice and different wood attached at odd angles. There are many permanents in the park with old trailers and new trailers. There are many work trucks parked by each trailer. On one site, the permanent resident has even been able to trim bushes at his site into a dog shape. The bathrooms are old and moldy but the owner has pulled a trailer into the park with individual shower and toilet on each side (two units) That makes a total of 4 toilets for the entire park of 110 sites. This toilet/shower area is new and fairly clean. I was curious about another campground next door, it seems to be neater and designed better and looks cleaner. Both parks are old and heavily used. There are not many other parks this close to San Francisco.

We have stopped here many times and we always enjoy it, especially because of the long spaces, wide open feel and neat and clean premises. Enjoyed our stay again. WiFi a little slow because park was full. Showers take a few minutes to warm up. Dog wash is still $5.00 which is a good reason to stop and wash a large dog. Food Maxx is within walking distance. Highly recommend to anyone in an RV.

Great USFS campground on Lava Lake. More sites available at Little Lava Lake (USFS)close by. Shaded with pine trees, outhouses only...the RV park next door may allow showers ($). Lava lake has a store, fishing, dock, boat rentals. Calm and peaceful as expected. This lake area along Cascades Lakes Hwy near Bend is fantastic.

We stayed in Little Fawn campground within the Paulina Lake area. A little down the road from Paulina Lake Campground. A smaller campground with sites right on the water. Boat ramp available. it is beautiful and was quiet this time of year. Easiest to get a site out of season.
