Where else can you get a paved, clean full-hookup site for only $13 for us seniors? Agree with all others, but want to add that it is in a very quiet place, away from major roads and freeways, which is nice. No view of the Columbia River because of brush, unfortunately. Also, I had site 18 and was able to get Dish satellite signal and good Verizon service. It was very hot the days I was here, so I appreciated the shade from trees. I will be sure to come back here whenever I am passing through.

Park is a mixture of long-term residents and short-term visitors. Kids enjoyed the heated pool and laundry was clean with multiple machines. Sites are gravel and paved with grass in between. Reasonably sized for a commercial campground. Landscaping was well taken care of. One benefit is that this is walkable distance to a shopping center with Target and several other chains, but unfortunately not a big grocery store. A bit noisy, like all urban campground, but if you are visiting the city, a good place to stay at a reasonable rate. Got 3 bars of Verizon cell and data service.

This is an older state park and like nearly all California state parks, is expensive considering it has no hookups, and showers are quite a walk from some campsites. We stayed in Agate Campground, which has fewer overhead trees, but very thick vegetation between sites, resulting in a lot of privacy. Sites are dirt and mine was very difficult to squeeze into because the entrance had trees and branches to avoid, making it narrow. Picnic table and grill were in a more open space in the back. This campground is not too far from the beach, but because it is on a high bluff, there is quite a hike down to the beach and would take substantial effort for me. Very nice views, however. There are several other scenic hikes in this area which are not so strenuous, however. Got 2 bars of Verizon cell and data.

This is one of the very few west coast state parks that is really and truly on the beach overlooking the Pacific Ocean, so it is a great value for the price. There are electric hookups on some sites, but no water or sewer hookups, but the dump and fill station is very close. Sites and roads are paved with grass between sites and in fairly good condition. It is a fairly small state park compared to a lot of others and is minimally manned, but the location and ocean view makes up for all of that. (There was a camp host but he had a sign out the entire three days that we were here that he was not on duty.) This is one of the deepest and flattest beaches I have seen on either coast--you could get worn out just getting to the surf! There is a small river that many of the sites overlook as well. But the best part of the constant wind makes for fantastic kite and windsock flying, which my grandkids really enjoyed. Decent Verizon service, but no AT&T.

The location gets a 10, but the facilities get a 2, which is generous, so I averaged it as a 6. The beach is absolutely gorgeous, but there should be an easier way to get to it, such as a boardwalk. Getting to the beach requires a climb up and down several hills on soft, very hot sand. Also, I can deal with dry camping, but for this price, they should have real restrooms instead of porta-potties. The one real restroom, toilets only, no showers, is locked for some reason. Also, water hookups are few and far between. I have not used the dump station yet, so no comment on that. Sites are close together and on dirt and sand, and very uneven. Ours had several small hills and depressions from old fire pits. I also found trash in the dunes area immediately next to our site, which is really a turn-off. One positive was generous generator hours and excellent Verizon service. Ocean breeze also slightly makes up for lack of facilities.

Yes, it is windy here, and the road coming in is narrow and on the levee, but it is passable, and the campground is more than worth the drive from Route 12. Sites are very large, not crowded together, and very clean and well-taken care of. It is also very quiet because it is away from traffic and main roads. It is nice to have plenty of room to park a vehicle next to your RV and still have room to sit outside with chairs and a picnic table. Verizon data signal was 3-4 bars of 4G service.

This is a relatively new campground, convenient to SLC airport. I stayed here for one night before and after I had to fly out, leaving my motorhome at the airport for five days in between. Sites are clean and paved, with grass and young trees in between. Very well maintained, but negatives are heavy freeway noise and what sounded like some sort of nearby race track one morning. Another irritation was the call center where I made a reservation. The first time, they put me into a very large space, which was corrected by the lady when I checked in and she noticed that I was in only a 32' vehicle with no tow. She put me in a smaller space and gave me a refund of $15. When I made the second reservation, I again was going to be charged $56 and put in a 40' space. Told the lady on the phone that I had been charged much less just 6 days before. So first she gave me the Good Sam discount and then when I argued some more, grudgingly put me in a 35' space for $37. I don't like those sorts of upselling games. but on the other hand, the office staff could not have been nicer, so I suspect someone in the call center is making these decisions. I would definitely stay here again.

This is a very pretty state park nestled in a small valley surrounded by hills and facing a lake. Roads are paved, as are sites, and many sites are double-wide. Sites are also spread fairly nicely apart. My only warning is that there is no cell service here, and I was only occasionally able to pick up a tiny bit of Verizon data, in spite of the fact that the Verizon coverage maps show 4G coverage here!

It is important to know that there are several campgrounds at this state park. I chose Cottonwood because it has electric and paved roads. What I did not know was that while the interior campground roads are paved, you need to drive two miles on a very rough dirt road to get here. And once here, you cannot get to the dam or other parts of the state park. Cottonwood in near the San Juan River, but not on the lake. I will try one of the other campgrounds with electric sites next time because I hate to drive on washboard dirt roads with my relatively clean motorhome. I watched one truck pulling a small trailer do a very awkward turnaround and head back. Verizon here is 1-2 bars of 3G, which was also disappointing. Pads are asphalt with nice covered picnic tables, and water, but only 30 amp hookups. Really need to list each campground in this state park separately because they are quite different.

This was a group campground until this spring, but it is now open for individual full-hookup camping unless reserved by a group. In fact, the sign out front still identifies it as a group campground, but in fact individual sites are reservable on Reserve America. Located about a half mile north of the visitor center museum, it is tucked into a small canyon and is a very pretty location, only about a mile off I-70. Roads and sites are gravel, but in good condition and fairly level. Sites are large and adequately separated. Best part was that in spite of canyon and nearby mountains I was able to get 2 bars of Verizon voice and data, and also got a good satellite signal.

Very happy to find this place. It was cold and rainy, but I was just looking for a place for a night on my way from Provo to Zion National Park, and this was perfect for what I wanted. Sites and roads are paved and in good condition. Most sites have water and electric, and if you get here off-season, you can use the host sites with full hookups. I also picked Site 12 because it was a very long pull-through with a terrific view of the lake, which is low on water, but still very scenic because of the mountains in the distance covered with snow. Sites are spread out nicely, with covered picnic tables, but no shade otherwise. Only three other campers here on weekday, so lots of privacy. Be warned that there are no showers here and restrooms look pretty basic--maybe pit toilets? I did not go in. I will definitely use this place for a quiet, peaceful, scenic place to hang out in the future. I got 2-3 bars of Verizon LTE service, which made me happy.

I love this place and will be coming back for more times next year. They have to truck in water, so make sure you fill your fresh water tanks before you arrive, but that was the only real negative. Sites are adequately large and paved, and electric worked well. Sites on the north and east sides are a little high so they have a slight view. And the view less than I mile down the road were incredibly spectacular--actually much better in my opinion than the views in the next door Canyonlands National Park. You can see several oxbow bends of the Colorado River and the cars and boats on the river 2,000 feet down the canyon. Also, I was able to get just a tiny bit of Verizon, so I was able to make calls and use my jetpack for internet. Extremely quiet because it is so far from highways.

This is really just one of two campgrounds within 30 or more miles, and the only one with hookups. The other is a dry-camping gravel parking lot near the entrance to the canyon. I was satisfied with the sites and getting in and out. Laundry was also OK, although a bit expensive at $3 a load, but this is desert and water is scarce here. The check-in lady did not seem to know the answers to many of the questions I asked about exactly where the tour I scheduled went and what the tour bus was like. One problem for those who do not have a car is that the hotel and market are quite a ways down a hill on the roadway. I got a small amount of Verizon voice and data, which I was happy with. I tried the campgrounds free Wifi, and it did not work well, even with my booster. In any case, I would stay here again.

I stayed in one of the upper, new section, full hookup sites and was very pleasantly surprised by the view and the pleasant breeze. The campground is on a hill and is terraced so nearly all sites have terrific views of the valley and mountains in the distance. Sites are large with greenery in between and lots of separation between you and your neighbors. Pads are wider-than-usual cement with asphalt entrances and roadways. Patio areas are raked gravel and very well taken care of. This upper section is fairly new so hookups worked and were well-placed. There is a little road noise from the freeway in the valley, but a lot better than some places. Also, 5 bars of Verizon coverage. I was here on Easter weekend, and it was busy, but no problems with overly noisy neighbors. Did not see any ants, which may be more prevalent in the older camping area.

This is going to be a campground I come to often! I even like it better than Catalina SP, for several reasons: the desert and view of the mountains is prettier here, it is bike riding distance to the Sonoma Desert Museum and Old Tucson, it has a nice dump station and water fill area, it is $10 cheaper, and sites are nicely spread apart. There are a limited number of spaces for larger rigs, and they do not take reservations, but they do assign spaces based on RV size, so the larger sites do not get taken up, leaving only small spaces. I had plenty of room in the space they assigned for me, and they found me a spot where my refrigerator would not be facing the sun! Good Verizon voice and data service throughout campground. Only real improvement would be wider shoulders or a bike path along the roadway through the park and Saguaro National Monument, which is also right next door. Another negative for some people is that they do not allow open fires. May use only charcoal for cooking.
