This was an incredible campground. It was very windy the whole time we were here. The peninsula sites are private and you share a beach with the 4 RV's on your peninsula. We were there in April and felt like we had the place to ourselves. The bar and grille was good but the "bucket" drinks were very pricey.($30 for one drink!) Full hookups right on the Colorado river. The RV sites were on dirt and gravel and required several blocks to get our trailer level. When I called and made the reservation the girl at the front desk said all sites and hookups are back in. That is not the case. Some sites are made to drive in for motorhomes. The site they gave us had hookups made to drive in and not back a trailer into. However it was easy to change sites. The only negative thing that happened was on our last night. The group who was coming into our peninsula site the day we left were let in by the security guard at 2AM. They woke us up and were very loud. They should of been put in overflow parking until we left in the morning. Checkout time was 11AM and we felt rushed out of our site due to the 3 rigs who had pulled onto our peninsula and were waiting for us to leave. We called the front desk and complained and they were very friendly and apologetic. The girl at the desk said they are not supposed to let guests in so late and the security guard should not have done that. If it weren't for that I would have given a 9 (no 10 because of no cable TV.)

Was a great stop for a 2 night stay. Weather was fantastic this time of year. If you stay at the RV park you have full access to the pool and private beach at the casino across the street. A little bit of road noise but it was manageable. There is a beautiful golf course right next door. The only reason I'm giving an 8 and not a 10 is because the ground is gravel and dirt.

The beach and campground setting is beautiful. That being said this is the worst Oregon State Park we have ever stayed in! It was truly disappointing. The showers and restrooms were filthy. I would not have given my dog a bath in them! There was an enormous amount of traffic coming in day and night. It was an extremely large park and we stayed in site C6. There was so much traffic I did not feel comfortable with my children playing out in front of the trailer. The only good loop in this campground is the B loop which is by the beach entrance and away from all the traffic.

The park itself is beautiful and one of the nicest we've stayed in. I gave it an 8 for two reasons. It needs a pool to justify the $69 a night price tag. Plus there are only two showers for the whole campground (2 mens, 2 womens). The showers have no ventilation and no windows to air them out. The showers were wet, moldy, and the floor would flood. There is only a small privacy curtain to cover you up while getting dressed. The curtain was only held up with Velcro and would fall periodically. If these two issues were fixed it would we a magnificent place.

This was such a better stay than my previous review last year. I gave it a nine rating because there is only direct TV hookups and no cable. The campground hosts were fantastic and much more kid friendly that last year. They were a tremendous help with my friend's 8 year old daughter who required a visit to the urgent care facility in Medford.

Stayed two nights to take our children to the nearby waterslide. The park grounds are very well kept. The bathrooms and pool were very clean. The rate posted reflects a Good Sam discount. The employees were very friendly upon check in and throughout our stay. There is a great walking path through a vineyard to get to a nearby winery or the waterslide across the street. Seems a littler overpriced, but would definitely come back.

The park is beautiful. Spaces are large and the deepest I've seen anywhere. Good water pressure and hookups are in a good location for your rig. The owners got on to several kids for running in a common area (behind our trailers.) Telling kids they can't run in a campground--that's crazy! There is no cable TV, but you can rent a Direct TV receiver. There is a nice fishing lake about a 4 minute walk behind campground. There is a general store up the road for food, ice, and fishing licenses, etc.. There was a very talented country band playing on Saturday nights, and when my kids got up and danced they were told (by the owner) to sit down. I wouldn't say he is rude, but they're just not used to having kids in the campground.

Sites can get very muddy when it rains. Very wide and spacious sites. Very kid friendly. I paid for a premium site and they put me in a deluxe site so I had to bring it to there attention to get a refund on the following day.

We stayed here at an off season rate of $70 a night (buy 2 nights get 3rd free.) It's a good deal at that price. Would not pay full rates. The showers, pool, spa, and bathrooms were spotless. Excellent grounds keeping staff. Only about 20 or so cable channels. Good Wi-Fi reception. Nice views of the ocean, however El Capitan State Beach has much nicer ocean views with beach access. The staff was friendly, and check in was painless. Would definitely recommend.

Great area. Beautiful scenery. Lots of cable TV channels. Great access for diving and fishing. They promised us a boat slip and were able to make good on the promise when we arrived. The only two downsides to this trip were the loud drunk parties here on the weekend. Also the dump station was broken so traffic was very rudely directed to the empty spot next to us for the trailers to dump. We got to smell 20+ trailers dumping there sewer next to us on Sunday morning. Very disgusting!

This is one of the best campgrounds we've stayed at. The area is fantastic. Waterfalls all around the lake. Do yourself a favor and rent a boat to drive around the lake. Also check out Courtright Reservoir about 30 minutes up the road. The scenery is incredible. The RV sites are some of the largest we've seen in a campground. Would have given it a 10 if it had cable hookups.

Let me start off by saying that the surrounding area is stunning. This is possibly the most beautiful scenery I've seen. Now we'll get to the campground. The office staff is not very organized and somewhat clueless about what is going on with the reservation process. I had a full hookup site reserved, and they had lost it due to a computer crash. I was only able to receive a partial hookup site upon arrival. My buddy rented the rental cabin which was supposed to include a boat slip. The boat slips were overbooked and had no room for our boat. On the second day we were able to get our boat on the commercial docks. The access for fishing and diving is fantastic from this location.

The $40 per night was ther average price I paid during the promotion of pay for 2 nights get 1 free. Beautiful park. All the employees were extremelly friendly. Some sewer connections are a bit of a reach. Make sure you have a 20ft sewer hose.

Excellent park!!! The owners and employees were fabulous. Very nice people. What service!! You buy firewood from the office and they deliver it to your campsite. Very pretty area up in the redwoods. I would have given a 10, but some of the sites looked very, very small. Do not tow a trailer up highway 9 (incredibly tight and twisty), instead go up highway 17 through Scotts Valley. Great hiking trails right from the park into Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park. Also, see the Roaring Camp railroads. Our kids loved the train ride!!!

Great place to camp and take the kids to the Mustang water slides. Pretty lake. Very convenient to stay here and go to the beach also. Saw some great wildlife. I would have given it a 10, but the website says nothing about the $7 reservation fee until you get your bill.
