At this price, in this resort area, this campground is a great find. Cash or check only. Call ahead to make the owner aware of your set up. He will help guide you into your spot. The campground is shaded but level and I think could handle big rigs fine. Don't know about 50 amp. A mixture of weekenders and summer campers we were here on the weekend and it was very quiet. We used this as our base to explore the Lake Almanore area which is 1/4 mile away, National Forest hiking and Mt Lassen National Park 40 miles away. The campground is right on 89 just into the town limits when traveling from the west. Be sure to get cheaper gas in the bigger cities. The drive on 89 is not bad. Entrance easy to negotiate, sites are gravel but level. We were suppose to stay one night but stayed 4. We would come again and recommend to friends. Did not get a 10 because the bathrooms were old but were very clean. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We spent one week here over Independence Day with 5 trailers in our group. All of us were in Toy Haulers and we could ride our Rhinos and quads right out of the park into the forest. The area for riding was dusty but we still had a great time The campground has pull troughs but is heavily treed and if you had a big rig (our biggest was 40 ft.) there are low hanging branches so be VERY careful. Full hookups were good but there are no pads …it is all dirt but a friendly park. Verizon cell does not work but ATT will work and a Sat.dish is hard to get located due to the trees. We will be back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here from May 1, 2011 to August 1, 2011. This is a small park, however very large spaces. We have a 40' motorhome and still had lots of space left. The park is designed for seasonal R.V.ers. The owner works overtime to make sure everything is just right for you. I have Verizon Cell service and it does not work. If you go up the road a short distance to Lake Almanor it works. The park has a very good Wi-Fi system and I used my Majic Jack phone service that worked very well. We enjoyed our visit and are planning on returning next year. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This place is a gem. It is mostly overlooked as there are other more prominent parks in this little mountain town of Canyon Dam. This park is unique as it is small. 12 spaces total. Half of them have year round homes while the other half are available for RV use. As they are mobile spaces, they are huge and can easily fit any rig. The park is very close to the lake and free boat launch. We had a great time, our space was shaded and the park was clean. Its located directly behind the post office in Canyon Dam so its not easy to see. Check in is across the street at the Kayak rental business. The owner of the park runs the kayak business and we found him friendly and enthusiastic. Again, a hidden gem that you have to look for to find. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
What a little gem of a park. We were here in big rigs (40 and 43) but got by fine on 30 amps in back-in sites. It's well maintained with immaculate restrooms and laundry and a soothing lawn. We checked other Lake Almanor locations, and this was the best. We had planned for 7 days and stayed 12. There is a train track nearby, but after the fist day it became a point of interest rather than a nuisance. The seasonal guests were very friendly and welcoming. And you can't beat the owner for energy, helpfulness, enthusiasm and personality. We'd certainly come back: just to see him. Big rig sites are few so call ahead. AT&T cell service worked but Verizon was spotty. We camped here in a Motorhome.
