This was our first time staying here and we were very pleased with this campground. Most of the sites have numerous tall pines for decent shade. In April, before the campground was open, we scouted out sites we liked before making a reservation. About 1/3 of the sites are first come / first serve. If you're into hiking, the 5 mile loop around Woods Canyon Lake is only about a 5-10 minute walk from the campground. The Rim Trail is about 1 mile away via a trail that runs from the lake to the rim. Basics necessities are available at the store by the lake. On our hike around the lake, we saw several elk along with a pair of nesting bald eagles and their two 6 week old youngsters. Very cool experience for our 9 year old daughter to see.

What a beautiful place to stay. We had spot 110, on the top row, and had enough room for our 35' RV. Maneuvering into position took a little work as most people want to face west for the view as opposed to the normal back in. But after the 14 mile warm up on the narrow road to the park, getting into the spot was easy. Electric panel has 30a & 20a outlets. We just used the 20a into a 50 adapter. Beach was really nice and the remoteness provides for no crowds. We did try the famous Jalama burger but it wasn't for us. The only negative, and it wasn't the facility's fault, was that tar balls were starting to show up along with some bigger pieces. I'm not sure wether or not it was related to the oil spill north of Santa Barbara, but became very noticeable on our last morning walk.

After reading so many mixed reviews, I was somewhat reluctant to stay here. However, after the wife and daughter decided that staying at Rincon wasn't a good idea for keeping the dog from making a mess in our rig, we headed here. I can definitely see where depending on what part of the facility you stayed at can make quite a difference. As for our site, 52, I have no complaints. Noise wasn't an issue and space was adequate. Here were our negatives; expensive, charge for everything and LOTS of rules. The one that bugged me the most was having to wear wristbands during your stay. That being said, I can see the reason as the proximity to the beach and it's local homeless has the resort security guards constantly patrolling the perimeter. Verifying who belongs is easier with the bands than security questioning every guest. We only stayed one night and I wouldn't hesitate to do it again.

Very nice shaded spot. We only used electric and sewer as water is trucked in and they advise there could be odd smell due to chemicals added. Perfect spot to stay for the night on our return to Phoenix from Yellowstone. We plan on staying here again when making a visit to the north rim.

We had a spot that backed up to stream. Site was clean with average space. Good stopping point on our way into Yosemite.

Very nice, clean and wooded campground. As previously noted, some of the sites, including the one we stayed in (62), have the picnic table and fire ring on the opposite side of the RV door entry. We would not hesitate to stay here again.
