We camped as a group and were well attended. They gave us a group rate. Management is very friendly and willing to help. The park is older so the spaces are narrow. Enough room for slide out but not slide out + awning. Power is 30amp only, with clean water, sewer, and cable hookup (didn't use) at each space. The park is well used by families and groups. There is a huge BBQ pit (rents for $50) with concrete tables and benches around. There is also a small children's playground with lots of swings, and climbing apparatus. There is also a well maintained baseball field that if fully stocked with good pro gear, the field was always under use while we were there. The lake has small rowing boats and a large solid ground pier to fish from, the lake is well stocked with fish. The park closes to the public at 8pm. Each camper is given a key so they can get in and out after hours ($5 deposit). We camped with 5 rigs and felt we got a good deal in a nice quiet place.

This was our first and last visit to this campground. We requested a range of 10 sites and got none of them. We were actually assigned a site on the middle of the park right next to the entrance and had to listen to noisy pick-up trucks come and go day and night. The site size was minimal with barely enough space to hook-up and put up our awning and single slide out, it was also short as we were on the grass just to get the front off the road. Getting around the park with your coach is not the easiest as a lot of the campers have trucks and a 2nd car which stuck out onto the interior roads. The park does little to manage this situation. They park has a rule about large and aggressive which we found the do not follow as we were attacked by a pit-bull, which the parks seemed to do nothing about when advised. When they mention family friendly on their web site they don't mention how friendly; that place is loaded with kids tearing around on bikes and skate boards. Which is OK if you are a family and good for the kids, but a little disturbing to the older set. The bathrooms were small but clean. The front gate crew were friendly and ready to answer any question. The on-site restaurant was sub-par at best. Their clam chowder seemed freshly made but was tasteless, fish & chips were straight out of the freezer bag. They list there burgers as 1/3lb but seemed a bit small to me. The store is well stocked with a little bit of everything and friendly staff. The miniature golf is hidden in the back and in poor condition. The Clubhouse is a large room with a small lending library, Ping-Pong tables, and little else. The pool was large enough and looked to be well cared for. It was well-used by the kids. As was the nice laundry facility. My conclusion: for couples or older set it’s a bit too noisy and busy, for families or groups it would be a great place, the restaurant should take a big miss, cramped spaces (web photos are deceptive)

This is roughing it in the millennium!!! The entire park has less than 100 sites. No Full hook-ups. Power only; water is never far away though with a long hose. There is a dump station that has easy access from either side. We have a 36ft coach, and it was a tight turn to get into top row space (the best place) but worth the effort. You head in and the view out of your front window (day or night) is the very best with great sunsets. We had 4 days/nights of great weather, rained one night but was sunny and warm every day. Surfers seem to love it as do the beach fishing crowd. They now accept reservations via their web site. The park is 20 miles from Lompoc, so make sure you either bring it all with you or a small car to drive to Lompoc to buy it. The rest rooms are older but clean and functional; the showers need quarters (usually 2 does it). There are a few new cabins with great views. All the tent camp sites are on the lowest level along with all the trailer sites. There are a few sites that are actually on the beach. On the top row is where most of the coaches go and is the pick of the place. There is a very small café inside the small store that makes good burgers, etc. Watch out; the portions are huge. We ordered fries and couldn't come close to eating half between us! CONCLUSION: Great fun for all. Everyone was very friendly, park workers and other guests. Jalama Burger didn't live up to bragging but still good. Basics only. Good surfing & beach fishing.
