This park exceeded our expectations. It is well maintained. The all gravel sites are not very appealing but they are level and well kept. Staff was quite helpful. - RPFawcett

Generally we prefer more "woodsy" campgrounds but quickly and happily settled in here for 3 nights. The folks in the office were so welcoming and friendly that the tone from the start was great! The spaces are moderately spacious and there is no privacy... yet that didn't matter as it was probably the friendliest campground I've been in. The ability to rent a fire pit for $10 day made the stay perfect - they delivered it along with the wood we purchased to our site! - Mksea

I agree with all the previous reviews, however we were struggling to level our rig, everything is on a down slope. the bathrooms are clean but appear dated, perhaps a new shower curtain and more chairs. There are lots of hooks which is great. This park feels very protected from the ocean/bay as it is surrounded by trees. I might check out the harbor campgrounds next time if the wind was not blowing hard. - saturn7

We have stayed here several times in the past. It has different managers than last time but they are really great. We reserved the last site available in the park. There was ample room for motorhome and our towed vehicle. They are so friendly and tried to see if there's another spot that I might like better but none were available. Site was super level which is very important for our motorhome would highly recommend this if in the area. Close to everything. - signaloil

We will go back. Not necessarily because of the RV park, but because of the things to do in the area. The location is great. The park is pretty bare minimum. The sites are small without any privacy shrubs. You will see your neighbor's hook-ups in your seating area and hear their conversations but if you can live with that, not a bad place. We liked the size of the park, which is pretty small and the fact that you can take some nice walks, even to a couple of restaurants, and can sit in the sunshine, watch the boats feel the feeling of a marina and enjoy staring at the water (if you have a water view.) We like the location. - Good Witch

This park is right on Bodega Bay with full hookups and you can have a campfire! Lots are spacious with some shade. Site surface is gravel and features a fire ring and picnic table.
Yes, it's a little pricey, but so is everything else in that area and the ambiance is worth it! - Endeavor03

This campground has nice spacing between sites with lots of shady spots and a few sunny ones. Most sites were suitable for a trailer. There are no hookups but there are flush toilets and hot coin operated showers (although we didn't use the showers). There is a dump station. We got good Verizon reception. - bdornbush

We wanted to come to Bodega Bay for a few nights and this was the only reservation we could get on a Sunday in August. You reserve a spot with Reserve America and when you drive in the ranger asks you to drive around and pick out 3-4 sites and then come back and let them know which one you want. We arrived between noon-12:30 and they were letting all of us check in early. We found several that would work well with our 24 foot RV. Most sites have a fair amount of trees around. We tried hiking to the beach access but it was probably a mile and a half from our campsite so we just drove over. The beach is spectacular. You can walk for miles. We had no AT&T data but our Verizon data had 2 bars. No TV. Pretty protected from the wind and a nice amount of space between your neighbors. - WinnebagoTraveler

We love this park. No electricity or hook ups for motorhomes, and you need a mat to keep the dirt out, but you can hike to the beach, go through the fence to get to the harbor, bike and generally relax. The state is so poor than they close 90% of it for the winter - proving yet again they are idiots. Camp hosts are nice and rangers OK. - mellie

This was 2nd time stayed here and first time they only had 2 sites w/electricity. Upgraded to maybe 9 sites w/30 or 50 amp. No sewer. Some sites are basically in the grassy field with a fantastic ocean view (All the RV sites/platform tents and many of tents do also). Scattered tenting site and/or platform tents throughout. Something like 378 acre ranch, with riding stables and guest house accommodations, too. Not for everybody, but my grandsons (25 & 13) loved it. Located just north of Bodega Bay almost to Salmon Creek. Really great camp hosts have been there quite awhile and are helping the new owner transition. Non-barking, friendly dogs have been welcome (don't want to scare horses). Trail riding is a separate entity, but they do great trail rides, are very helpful and friendly. Will go back. They do have Passport America, but not sure if any other discounts at this time. - 5er Pam

No hook ups, no trailer dump. Wonderful sites, great beach. We were treated to a perfect sunset. Loved going to sleep hearing the sound of the surf. - Trekking

This campground is all about location. It is literally right on the beach. The sites are on sand, not level, they have a picnic table and fire ring. The bathrooms are fairly new and clean. If you want a shower, you have to go about five miles to the Bodega Dunes campground. Big rigs would have some problems getting into some of the sites. Our rate reflects a senior citizen discount. Site number 8 is the best of the best. We love this place and will continue to return whenever we can get a reservation. - Atnt Life Grand

In a large motorhome you have to park in the parking lot, for the same price as the actual spots. It was quiet and we hiked on the beach, undisturbed, with our dogs and again along the shore the next day. Not sure why the state won't let motorhomes park in the main parking lot at night. We live nearby so it was an ok stay for 1 night. We prefer Bodega Dunes but it was sold out. - mellie

We have been going to this park ever since we bought our 40-foot motorhome. We like it for the fact that you can choose a side right on the bay at Bodega if you reserve far enough in advance. The site is about 62 to 65 feet long so there's enough room for my motorhome and the toad behind it. We really enjoy the all asphalt parking and nice interior roads. Is very close to some of the best places to eat in the entire area. - signaloil

Great park. My family and friends come to Bodega Bay a couple times a year to salmon and crab fish. Lots of other fishermen and boats in the park during the season. Close to the marina and boat launch, and if you like telling fish tales then this is the place for you. - Mike Jhonson

A favorite park of ours, even though no hookups. Always clean (pay) showers, and you can normally feel comfortable letting children (of appropriate ages) make friends with other camping kids and playing on the rocks, etc. Some sites are back-ins and they are up against a row of trees, and if you're on the bay side, that row is a bit more protected than pull-throughs. Sites are paved, picnic tables on grass (yep, weeds, I'm sure) and fire pit with partial rack. Good place to camp with several families. Always nice to watch the activity in the harbor. Have camped here in every month of the year and some are more quiet than others - have never been there on a weekend when there wasn't another camper. - 5er Pam

Beach campgrounds always seems to have trashed restrooms/showers -- Doran County Park is no exception. Park personnel appeared daily to replace TP, but did not clean the dirty shower stalls or restrooms. Apart from this, the park has excellent walking-distance access to ocean/beach and Bodgea Bay; excellent views. Besides campers, there are many day visitors, some arriving just after dawn. There is a steady stream of vehicular traffic along the road separating the campground from the beach. Most sites are windy in afternoon. There are two separate campgrounds; the one at end of spit is more exposed. Persistent foghorn 24/7. - Taco stand

Just stayed there 7 nights dry camping. Place was booked heavy for MLK weekend. We managed to grab a first come first served spot, of which there are only 20-30, and some are only deep enough for small trailers or tent trailers. You are allowed up to 10 days in those spots. Very close walk to the beach. Most sites are reservation sites which have to be made 10 days in advance. Those sites have the best views of the bay and Pacific Ocean. The rate is now $32 plus $2 per dog. Dump station is $7, any credit or debit card. Check in was cash or Visa, Mastercard, no American Express. They just repaved with new asphalt, except the campsite areas. The turnoff from the highway all the way to check in and the main road is all fresh, very nice. Satellite service with our Kingdish was spotty, but AT&T air card worked great. Would stay here again. - road glide

Great beach. For northern California. The beach sand is fairly soft on bare feet. Ready to walk to. It can get foggy and windy. - calicoastgirl

This was our third stay at this park. Very close to the ocean, nice walk down to the Russian River. 30 amp power, but sewer included. We use this as our week between stays at Thousand Trails Russian River and TT Morgan Hills and really enjoy our 'quiet' week here. Rate reflects our $0/night cost under ROD. - PugetSound

This is a private membership park, rate was $0 under ROD. Probably the cleanest membership park we have experienced. Although not new, everything seemed to be clean and well maintained. I have a volt meter by the door and never experienced any power problems like some have mentioned. We stayed 4 days and used the park to explore both North and South on the coast. The only reason I have for not rating it a 10 is the lack of a swimming pool although they do have swimming access in the river. - bdpreece
Sep 2014 - $1.00
Rate reflects $0 for ROD. We stayed here for a week, great access to the beach which is just a few miles away. We had no problem with the 30 amp power, it worked just fine with better than average voltage, no voltage drop was detected. The staff is very friendly and we really enjoy the area. The park itself is nothing special, but fit our needs. - simonsrf

I read reviews on this place and as far as I'm concerned they are overrated. Neighboring lots are nearby and have sunny/open exposures. Site surface is dirt and features a fire ring.
We have stayed at much nicer places with way friendlier people! - karenwerf

The check-in was simple and quick. The camp store is very complete and everyone was very friendly and helpful. The sites were level, clean, and hookups were easy to get to.
My only complaint are the burrs...those little round prickly things...they got into the toes of my dog...to the point of a visit to the vet when we got home...infection and had to be on antibiotics! Next time he is going to wear booties...warning for other dog owners!
I would highly recommend Casini...location is great for visiting other small towns! - nicholsm

This is a great campground - close to the Pacific Coast, and nestled in the Russian River Valley. Sonoma wine country nearby (Korbel is just down the road). Redwood forests (some on the property). There is a seal colony at the coast.
The park offers a store, kids activities, farm animals, hayrides, lots of water activities (1 mile of riverfront), and organized activities.
Updates are taking place - like new ADA bathrooms (very nice), rental RVs, and electrical upgrades.
The big charm of this park is the historical aspect. In the Casini family for over 100 years, with a historical barn still on site, it has a an old west, great family friendly feel.
If you want to stay up late partying, and making noise - this IS NOT the park for you. It is very family focused - and they enforce their quiet hours for the enjoyment of their guests.
Bottom line - there are lots of ways to stay entertained here. - AngelaS

The location gets a 10, but the facilities get a 2, which is generous, so I averaged it as a 6. The beach is absolutely gorgeous, but there should be an easier way to get to it, such as a boardwalk. Getting to the beach requires a climb up and down several hills on soft, very hot sand. Also, I can deal with dry camping, but for this price, they should have real restrooms instead of porta-potties. The one real restroom, toilets only, no showers, is locked for some reason. Also, water hookups are few and far between. I have not used the dump station yet, so no comment on that. Sites are close together and on dirt and sand, and very uneven. Ours had several small hills and depressions from old fire pits. I also found trash in the dunes area immediately next to our site, which is really a turn-off. One positive was generous generator hours and excellent Verizon service. Ocean breeze also slightly makes up for lack of facilities. - judy_online

Was our first stay at Lawsons Landing which is a dry campround on the coast. We stayed in the meadow section and came prepared with our generator. If you need a full service park with hookups, lawsons is not for you. However, if you like boondocking, don't mind a jamboree feel and want great access to the shore and dunes, give it a try. - castleshade

The campground has been reduced to a small area called the Seawall just beyond hundreds of "permanent" trailers - most of which are very old and dilapidated. Gone are the days of camping anywhere you want in the large grassy meadows or near the sand dunes due to environmental concerns. The ocean views and the beach access are still very good. The outhouses are suprisingly clean but the restrooms are old and dirty. - ap_obs
