2 Parks near Manchester, California
Mar 2016 - $58.00
We stayed at the KOA Manchester Beach after dry camping two nights at Stillwater Cove SP (wonderful spot) so wanted hookups and services for a few days. Very friendly and helpful staff, easy checkin. They let us pick our spot; the park was virtually empty on a mid-week March day.
We enjoyed how this KOA was much more "natural" than most - grass/gravel spots with large trees around and a good amount of separation between sites. We picked one of the "premium" 50A full-hook up sites in the back, (believe it was 90 as noted below but not sure). The 30A pull throughs looked a little close together by comparison but were nice being in the trees.
They went above and beyond with service; both evenings we stopped at the office for firewood which they quickly delivered to our site in their golf cart.
Did not use the facilities/showers/pool/kitchen, but enjoyed a fire each night and watching the stars and moon among the tree branches. - brucemcdou

This is a pretty nice campground for a KOA. It's spacious, has a nice big dog run, various levels of service to choose from ranging from tent only sites to FHU's. It's overpriced IMHO like most KOA's (obviously, I don't have a high opinion of KOA's), but at least it's nice. There are a bunch of "amenities" like bocce, horseshoes, volleyball, playgrounds, pool & hot tub etc. Probably a pretty nice place for families to camp...lots for the kids to do. There is a trail to the beach but we didn't take it. We were here on a Monday night in June and there were tons of spaces available. Price includes $3 extra for the little dog. What's with California charging extra everywhere for the dogs? - Pdxjoanne

This is well maintained clean quiet park that is located well away from any city life or sounds. The spaces in the full hookup area are nice size but all the ground is natural dirt, sod, pine needles etc. lots of massive trees for shade. The WiFi is not so good and even my Verizon only gets one or two bars. The TV has very limited channels but there is a nice big screen TV in the outdoor common area. The only thing that will keep me from coming back to this area is that dogs are not allowed on the dunes or beaches. - MJHP*28

We stay at this park often because it is much less crowded than the park next to this park. It is a short five minute walk to the beach and the sites are huge. It is dry camping, but they do provide water to fill your fresh water tank, and there is a dump station. We are set up for dry camping, and we enjoy staying at this park. It can sometimes get windy here, but the wind dies down at night. - 10540

This park is a fine park for over night or to visit the light house. There is a dump station and water available to empty and fill your tanks if needed. The park has several projects going on but they did not bother our camping. We saw several deer, rabbits and birds and had a nice walk on the beach. Keep going past the KOA to find the camp ground. - wavefarer
