Love-love this place. Spaces are staggered so when you look out your window you don't see your immediate neighbor. Grounds are maintained and everything is so green and lush. A bus to the casino comes around every 20 minutes in case you want to go gamble or have a bite to eat. I feel very safe and secure here. - jmzumer

Very nice park. Large concrete, pull through and back in sites. Grass between the sites. Some small trees. A nice picnic table is provided. WI-FI was excellent. Cable TV was digital, AT&T worked well. Only propane fire pits are allowed. Everything about this park is first class. A convenient shuttle provided rides to the casino that contains reasonably priced restaurants with good food. - travelcouple

This is our third stay here. We like this campground quite a bit. It has many amenities for families during the summer (water park, mini golf, swimming pool, arcade). These things are closed during the off season when we come (rates are lower then as well) so I cannot comment on them. This is a campground with many tent sites, and two RV loops. The resort in the name comes from the amenities, a motel building, and some cabins. When we have been here (May and Sept) the place is quiet with maybe one or two tents and a dozen RVs (not counting the "extended stay" folk in the lower RV loop). As with most RV places with "extended stay" residents the WiFi bogs down to just about useless in late afternoon and into the evening. The sites in the upper (transients) loop are arranged in a long line across the top of a low hill, a mixture of pull throughs and back ins on both sides of the road. Access is pretty good with a few very large sites that will fit just about anything down to smallish backins with ok clearances. I would not call this campground "big rig friendly", but, I have seen some pretty big units squeeze into the long sites. There are lots of trees with most sites having shade at least part of the day, some pretty much all day. Bathrooms are not plush, but, functional, well maintained, and kept clean. There are plenty of restaurants, small town shops, and an nice market in the town of Pine Grove all within a couple of miles. We will be staying here again. - Keager

Family campground with lots of things for kids. Swimming pool, water park, arcade, mini-golf, playground, movie night, pool table, and a hiking trail. We had a pull-thru site, level, gravel, with a picnic table and fire pit. WiFi was slow and worked best closer to the Office. Cable TV. Biggest problem was the sewer connection was 8" off the ground, so had to lift the hose to dump. Quiet at night. - zigzag

Our site was nice and wide, as are most of the sites, and required only a couple Lynx blocks to level. The sites are definitely more rustic, but that's a positive. We like having the feeling of real camping while still being able to run our A/C and take warm showers in the RV. The sewer hookup in the site is beyond bizarre. They are raised considerably higher than the sewer connector on the RV.
The staff is very friendly. The biggest problem we had was that the power kept cutting out. They do not have the power capacity for the number of sites they have. That meant not being able to run the A/C during the 100 degree day.
This might not be a problem, except we're paying for that power in our nightly rate and they really nickel-and-dime you in other ways. For example, my father-in-law (who lives 10 minutes from the campground) came and visited us for an hour. He had to pay $5 for parking. If we would've had 4 people staying, he would've had to pay an additional $5 to get into the park. I realize there are probably people who take advantage of liberal policies on visits, but charging family members $5 for a 1-hour visit is beyond ridiculous.
On top of that, we had a very noisy neighbor. They ran their stereo at very high volumes, had a dog that barked constantly and the staff did nothing about it.
The staff does not wear any type of uniform, so you have no idea who works there and who doesn't. That's really convenient for the staff, but inconvenient for paying campers who might need help from the staff in one way or another. - tylersdad

The construction is completed, and it is now quiet both day and night. 12-full hookup sites, with a reservation fee of $10. The showers and restrooms are now operational. No TV, and WiFi ($) reception was only at the Office. Fishing is the primary activity. No body-to-water contact is allowed on the lake. They have a swimming pool, which is only open in the summer months. Nice Marina with fishing supplies and the office sells firewood. Good discount for senior boat rental. - zigzag

There are no showers or restrooms, only portable toilets. We had planned to stay for 2 weeks but had to cut it short because of construction noise. They are in the process of constructing some RV pads. Noise started at 7am and didn't end until 4pm. We though we would at least get a break on the weekends, but construction still happened on Saturday. The only way to get WiFi is to pay through the cable company. Went to the web site, paid my money, but then couldn't log in. The campers there were very friendly. - newbies2016
May 2016 - $39.00
This park has 12 full hook-up sites which are very clean and well spaced. Picnic table and fire ring. Pool in summer. Good campground if you want to fish. Park very well maintained. The unfortunate is that there is construction going on starting at 7am even on Saturday. Kind of ruins the atmosphere. - NaniJ

This is our go-to park for Amador County wine tasting. The park is tree-lined and well-maintained. Some sites are a little tough to get into due to the trees, but it's worth the effort. - TahoeWino

Old park, narrow access and in need of upgrades. Park office/management personnel were unprofessional, rude and obnoxious, with the exception of one gentleman. Overpriced for weeded, unevenly paved sites with tons of ducks and poop. Have stayed here numerous times in the past, but will not return again, the management'attitude is not customer friendly or accommodating. Spaces are so tight that we had to move our tow vehicles three times so other rigs could have room to back into their sites. Watched one motor home scrape it's top on un-trimmed branches. - Jxex
Dec 2016 - $50.00
This is an older park, (40 years) and very large. RV spaces are good but access can be a problem for bigger rigs as the road is narrow and lots of tow vehicles parked along it. Owners need to start putting some of the money back into park. It is very popular as near foothills and wineries.
There is cafe and ice cream. Saw lots of the kids with ice cream in the cold weather.It was raining so lots of mud everywhere, not the parks fault.
Also they do not seem to enforce the 10 pm quiet time as a group was partying until at least 12:30 or so.(And this was not New Years night.) - chily3

Condition of the Park ranges from good to bad. Some of the trailers look like they are falling apart and need to be towed away while others are brand new. The bathroom and showers work but the water is luke warm at best and the pressure is terrible. Extremely slippery floors. Roads are in good condition, but with aggressive speed bumps all over the place. They weed whack fairly often so the weeds stay down.
Manager and Owner not pleasant or understanding. Made me feel inferior. Park has Loud Bass Booming Music, Loud Cars with Exhaust, Highway right next to it, and kids you don't know who get into your stuff and ask for stuff. Don't go here. - CornDog1982
Oct 2011 - $30.00
This is a pleasant park. The manager is very friendly and accommodating. Lots of long term residents but lots are kept clean and tidy. Surprised at the trees and shade. Pool is beautiful. Restrooms and showers are extremely clean. Keys are given out to the over nighters. The only complaint is some lots are parked next to three big propane dispensers. Kind of unnerving. - Snooker2

We have been staying at this park for six years usually for a month long stay. We typically have to trim a few branches to slip into our site with our 40' rig. Park personnel are always helpful and willing to trim as needed to make the site suitable. There is plenty of shade in the upper campground. There are also RV sites available in the mobile home section of the park. Those are usually given to longer term stays. We enjoy visiting the gold hills region of California with its mining heritage and newer wine country heritage. - LivinTheDream

Although we did not spend the night here we did spend the day walking around it. It is COE, most sites are open (not shaded) and a lot of them can hold large RVs and are very spacious. Not all are level by any means but some are, like site 18. There is no cell reception and only vault toilets. It does have an easily accessible dump station. - rhianna

It's easy getting in and out with good paved roads. This is dry camping with water available, but not in each camp site. It is NOT an RV Park. It is a nice camp ground. There is a table and fire ring. No electric hookups. What we liked: camp sites are large and nicely spaced such that we didn't feel crowded. It was quiet at night. The place was clean. There is water in the lake. Needs Improvement: Sites have fairly level tent areas. However, RVs will take some work to get level. Be careful of the large rocks and curbs. We'll be back. - Lamplighter

We love COE, FS, BLM campgrounds, not just because we can get the "old peoples discount" but because they are usually quiet, sites are roomy and they are protected natural parks. This campground though should have a sign at the entrance that says "rigs over 35' BEWARE". The roads are VERY tight with lots of sharp curves and lots of trees. We pulled into Site #1 because it was the longest and most level. #3 could also have been OK. Those 2 sites are just inside the entrance gate so you don't have to drive the other loops. Anyone that drives a large motorhome knows how difficult it is to get level and almost ALL the sites here have a flaw. We are not really picky people even though this review may sound like it but I just want people with large rigs to be forewarned. After all that, we really liked this park. We may not have had any cell service or Internet or TV but we took lots of beautiful walk through the park and along the trails. It has 2 dump stations with easy access and water stations throughout. - rhianna

We love Army Corps of Engineer campgrounds. They are always near water, always scenic, and always quiet. We can live comfortably for a week with no hookups so we are very content in this type of setting. Acorn COE is very picturesque and just about any site will have a nice view. The area is abundant with wildlife. We had deer come through our campsite and saw turkeys numerous times. The nightly rate is $16 but with the Golden Age National Park Passport it is 50% off, so cost us $8 a night. We camped here with another couple and we had adjoining sites. We enjoyed many a campfire in our 5 day stay here. - RoamingRetirees

Miners Camp is 1 of 2 full hookups RV sites in Comanche Lake resort. We came in on Sunday of Memorial day weekend and had to book a minimum of 3 days. We made reservations over the phone and paid for the 3 days over the phone. When we arrived the attendant at the gate informed us we owed 30 dollars and I said no that we had prepaid. He said yes but there is a $5 a day charge for a dog and I had 2 small dogs. The employees at the gate entrance were friendly and courteous. The interior roads are paved and the sites seemed spacious enough and are paved about 15 feet in from the road and the rest is weeds. We were kind of in disbelieve from this point on. We had campsite 18 and literally had weeds waist high that were all over our site. All the short term campsites from 4 to 20 were vacant with waist high weeds. The electrical panel had thick cobwebs and black widow eggs with a live widow in it. The sewer hookup was elevated about 18 inches above ground which makes for some interesting drainage. The water was heavily chlorinated and smelled much like a swimming pool. There is no Wi-Fi or cell service . A very nice gentleman staying long term across the street I think felt sorry for us and had offered to let me use his lawn mower. Our little dachshunds did not like the tall weeds and we were concerned of fox tails going up their noses. We did not use our 3rd paid day; my wife's hay fever was acting up big time. A little maintenance would have gone a long way. The front office did offer to comp us one day. Needless to say I will not be back. - wolfman76
May 2008 - $30.00
We stayed here three nights in a travel trailer. The description of the campground sounded nice, but when we arrived we should have turned around and left before registering. However, decided to stay since we were there and were sorry we did. Old campground with lots of permanent residents in the RV section, no restrooms or showers near the RV section, the lake level was so low we could not launch our kayaks, RV section was located away from the other camping area. Would not recommend this to anyone. - bobnrobin
Sep 2007 - $48.00
We stayed here on Labor Day weekend 2007 because it looked good in pictures and wasn't too far to drive. However, the majority of the RV campers were residents and were not on the friendly side. The kids got yelled at for riding their bikes around the camp too "noisily". The water in the swimming pond was scary and there was broken glass in the sand surrounding it. The playground was older than me! The only good thing is that the office staff was very helpful and nice. Regardless, we left first thing Saturday morning to go stay at another RV park. We will not stay here again unless the locals (aka: residents) change. - grtmomx3

Always a good time camping here. Sites are good size. Nice beach on a small bay for swimming (no wake zone). Nice Trout pond with small dock for row boats only. - warrior
Jul 2016 - $54.00
We have stayed here every year for several years and always enjoy it. The service is good although you should expect delays at check-in if arriving on a Friday. The sites back up to the Trout Pond. True to its name, this is a fishing pond only--no motors, no swimming, not even for dogs. All of these are accommodated at the main lake which, in this year of higher water, is just a short walk away. Even if you don't fish, the pond is beautiful and peaceful, especially early in the morning and late evening. - 3peaks

This review is for the Monument RV section at Camanche South Shore. Level asphalt sites, roomy and wide, a few with shade. Campground was clean, with recycle bins. Sites had full-hookups, fire pits, and picnic tables. $48 per night, no discounts, you can avoid the additional $9 reservation fee this time of year as no one is here. RV needs to be fully contained as there are no showers or restrooms in the Monument RV section. Showers and restrooms near the beach area were clean but old. No WiFi internet in the campground, nearest WiFi is at the Starbucks in Valley Springs. We were able to get ten channels on our antenna TV. They charge a $5 per person, per day, fishing fee, purchase these as you enter at the Main Gate. Park is pricy for what you get. Quiet at night, friendly staff. - zigzag
