Our $9 half-price rate was based on our Senior Pass (which I think is overly generous) but, at the same time, this was strictly dry camping so that's about all I'd be willing to pay anyway. This is a typical NPS CG with LOTS of people crammed in. The sites are reasonably level asphalt. The one thing I dislike about NPS is the Reserve America (RA) system. At this CG, RA essentially owns Loop A. Even if there's an empty space in Loop A, park employees can't edit the RA system to show I'm in it. Bottom line, an RA customer can boot me from a site at any time. Otherwise, the CG is acceptable for a few days while exploring the area. The restrooms and showers ($1.50/3 minutes) are clean and the dump ($5 regular/$2.50 Senior Pass) is well maintained. We had zero signal on either Verizon or T-Mobile devices. We camped here in a Motorhome.

We spent two nights here and really enjoyed this campground. The campground wasn't very crowded, although there were lots of reserved sites for campers who were being displaced by the fires in the area. There are four loops, A, B, C, and D, which is for tents only. We chose site B46, which was a pull-through, because it was fairly easy to level. Many of the sites would require significant leveling. The biggest drawback was the dust...it's basically dirt camping except for the pad. This is the kind of dirt/dust that sticks to everything, so the dogs required a lot of clean-up before being allowed back into the RV. Neither AT&T nor Verizon worked in our site, but they were usable near the store. Nice walk around the lake. Nice campground host. I'd like to come back in the spring when there might be a bit of grass in the campsites. We camped here in a Motorhome.

At store, before entering camp loops, the camp road is not visible ahead. I found signs confusing, especially having a big rig. The sign at the store has a right turn to Manzanita Lake and cabins, but no sign to camp at that point. The camp sign is back several feet, and does not indicate where to go, which is straight up past the store. The pull-through sites are limited with big-rigs. I backed into pull-through site 45B, because the trees made a tight curve in the middle of the site. My RV is 10' high, and there was a dead branch scratching my solar panels. The pull-through sites have issues with branches, low hanging limbs, trees making the curve tight. Don't go by the length alone, because many sites are long. Threaded spigots throughout camp. Camp road and site pads are paved. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
