Date of Stay:

Efficient staff, great showers & laundry room, good location for visiting Solvang. However, they seriously need to segregate the dog sites. If you LOVE dogs, you will LOVE this park. Else, be prepared: "well-behaved dogs welcome." But like children, well-behaved is a matter of opinion. Sounds like a kennel in some areas (the RV 2 sites from us had 6 dogs).

Date of Stay:

A clean, well-maintained park with lush landscaping. The office staff is efficient and welcoming, and the friendly maintenance staff is constantly working. Perfect location on the bay, and bicyclers will appreciate the extensive Los Angeles/beach bicycle trail that connects outside the gate. We did not give a perfect score because there is a charge for internet and because this was the lowest voltage we have had in 3+ years of full-timing.

Date of Stay:

Excellent showers, good laundry room, uber-friendly staff. Close for exploring the quaint Danish village of Solvang. Last time in the area, we spent $95 to stay at another park. This will be our new highway 101 stop.

Date of Stay:

We split the rating between a Weekday 9 and a Weekend 7. Appealing landscaping, great showers, clean laundry room. Minuses: no night security patrolling (loud Friday night partiers til 11:45 pm); park-sponsored live country music blaring all afternoon Saturday (not our cup of tea /wine). Low voltage (114 with nothing connected yet). Would stay overnite if migrating thru, but NOT on a weekend night.

Date of Stay:

A "wow" entry, and a friendly, efficient, welcome desk. Great for overnight, though all back-ins. Wide spot, meticulously landscaped. All facilities clean and very nice. Voltage great (120). WiFi better than most. Coyote Creek bicycling/walking trail next door was paved, level, and enjoyable. Be warned: $5 a day for a patio table (?!), and trains with blowing whistles come through at night. We would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

A little weird for snow birding seniors. After being given wristbands that we were told we must wear (like little kids). We went to our dusty site to watch Monday night football (without our wristbands. Oops! They advertise cable, but only 10 local channels. And the Wi-Fi dropped constantly. Overall, we felt this place is for young'ns. But for us, it felt as fake as their western building fronts. We would not overnight here again.

Date of Stay:

Clean asphalt meadow in the middle of the Humboldt redwoods, perfect for exploring the area. Wide, level spaces, one row shaded by fir trees, the others satellite friendly. We had no Verizon reception, but the park has their own WiFi (it can drop once per minute but immediately reconnects). Low-key friendly office does not require deposit or first-born (how refreshing!). Great voltage. Clean bathroom & shower, but only one of each. Will stop here again when passing through.

Date of Stay:

Hmm... perhaps it depends on whether you have one of the back-in deck sites. The pull-through sites are claustrophobic; narrow with walls of greenery and not much room to walk next to the RV. The fire pit was twenty-four inches from motorhome step. Interior roads are gravel but the all-grass site was soggy from rain. This was the most leveling we have required in 3+ years full-timing. The voltage was low (114 on arrival). The Wi-Fi was poor. The dryers were weak (paid double to dry every load twice). A comically excessive number of speed bumps. The office was friendly, but obviously we will not stop here again.

Date of Stay:

Stopped here again on our exit from the Pacific Northwest. Flawless welcome desk, spotless individual toilets & showers, nicely landscaped. In 3+ years of fulltiming, this place has become our benchmark for whether we give a 10.

Date of Stay:

After experiencing expensive WA state parks, we found this Oregon state park unusual: Full hookups(!), inexpensive for non-residents(!), clean, free hot showers(!), some sites have cable TV (!), on-site laundromat (!).

Date of Stay:

The hospitable, hard-working owners get a 10+ rating, and are the reason we will stay again. Very, very clean park and facilities, but small. Enjoyed watching grey whales at the jetty, and the spectacular Pacific sunsets.

Date of Stay:

Pluses: Asphalt pads (almost 100% level). Satellite successful. Easy in & out. Private bathroom/shower units. Minimal freeway noise. Minuses: No WiFi as advertised. Did not like being next to long-termers with kids. Conclusion: Would stay here again when traveling in area.

Date of Stay:

Showers okay, light leveling needed, slight highway noise. Good, convenient over-nighter.

Date of Stay:

Price reflects out-of-state. We stayed in the lower (open beach) campground. Good hookups, clean but institutional (cement) pay showers. Good walking/hiking/biking. Would stay again.

Date of Stay:

No sewer. Hot showers (coin), but restrooms can be muddy from rainy days and/or lake swimmers. Hilly park roads. Beautiful woodsy sites. Best kept secret: reserve for 4th of July and get a front-row seat on beach for spectacular fireworks show, with homes around the lake competing for most money spent in professional fireworks.
