We had a family reunion at the park for 4 nights. Spaces 62 and 63. Clean Park. It was full. Beach is not the best for swimming as entry is through pebbles not sand. Surf was high with a lot of kelp from an off shore storm. Metrolink/Amtrak runs next to campground so you will have some train noise. Will stay again.

Nice clean campground. Upon arrival host escorted us to our site and assisted with backing in. Very friendly staff. Site was exactly level side to side, almost perfect front to back. Sites are all compacted red-rock. Lots of trees. 1/4 mile from Santa Margarita Lake. The campground is cut into a hillside so your views are not blocked by other RV's. The dirt road in is a little steep, we dropped into 4 wheel drive for the steep part. This is not your asphalt parking lot, but is a nice more rural campground miles from any traffic noise.

Yes there are signs everywhere. But with good reason. When people follow the signs it is easier for the hosts to keep the park clean and quiet! Our space #49 overlooked a small creek, was mostly level with manicured gravel. A wash tub fire pit and wood picnic table filled out the site. The site was roomie and separated from the other sites by large redwood trees. The campground hosts were very different from each other. One gentleman was very friendly and helpful. He gave us a quick, interesting history of the area and good tips on hikes to take. His partner, we didn't learn her name, was quiet and short in her conversations. The location is in the middle of a redwood grove with a small stream flowing through the campsites. It is an old park but well maintained. It is bordered by the Cowell State Park, with trails that lead from the campground into the park. It is about a 15 minute walk to the Roaring Camp Railroad. We will be back again this spring.

This is a small park run by the city of Lompoc. We wanted to stay at Jalama Beach but it was full. The sites are clean with nice trees. There is a river behind the campground and an active farming operation on the other side. It was noisy during the day with dirt bikes in the river bed and some farm machinery working the farm. The road in front of the site is the main access into River Park, a large, heavily used day park. It quiets down after dark. The hosts were friendly. We probably won't be back

What can I say, Sequoia is my favorite place on earth! Our site was about 75 feet from the river with partial shade. The site was rocky away from the parking area. We didn't see any bears but did hear one being chased from the other end of the campground. There is a restaurant and store a short walk from our site. We didn't eat at the restaurant so I can't comment on the food. Even in the middle of summer it wasn't that crowded. I will be back.

We stayed on the first weekend they reopened after a major rebuild. It was our first trip out with our new trailer. The sites are clean, the restrooms were brand new. The hosts were very helpful. The park is wonderful. Make reservations early it books up fast.
