Definitely should look at the spaces before you book. They are VERY close together. There is no vehicle discipline in the park. There were so many vehicles parked on the street we couldn't back in. We had to move to Wesport, sister site to Casper. They told us they would refund our money for Casper but of course they didn't. I would never stay here again. We camped at Caspar Beach RV Park in a Tent Trailer.

We stayed here because it has access to Caspar Beach. W&E sites were very short with bark mulch base. We felt our 24' MH wouldn't fit or be level so we had to upgrade to a full hookup site. A substitute person was at registration. She was friendly but didn't seem to know what she was doing. They are "dog friendly" but charge per dog. It must be to pay for all of the poo bag stations. Sites were very close together. I'm glad it was mid-week and off season. This park only gets a 6 because of the neighbouring beach. We won't stay here again. We camped at Caspar Beach RV Park in a Motorhome.

I loved staying here. The ladies are nice at the store and they have a very nice abalone cleaning station, if you're a diver. I've stayed a few times now and the grounds are pretty nice. Each site was fenced off with a small fence that gave you a little privacy and the firepits are always nice. The beach is a short walk away and the convenience store they run has a lot of good things. One thing I really enjoy about this campground is it's quite far separated from the main road, making you feel like you're really in a rural area. The only knock is one time we stayed, they started weed-whacking some overgrown weeds around the wooden fencing at 8 or 9 am. We were literally the only camper in the site, all the way in the back, and she decides to fire up this weed whacker about 20 ft from us. I forgive them, though, and will come back again. We camped at Caspar Beach RV Park in a Tent.

Tips for other Campers:

Go try out the sushi place, ice cream shop and the Brewery in Ft. Bragg

Very tight spots. Some of the road is one lane and could use a mirror to see if anyone coming before turning down into campsites or pulling out. Restrooms were clean. Showers were coin operated (did not use). Give it a plus for short walking distance to beach (walked down for sunset). Quiet time is supposedly 10 p.m. but neighbors were noisy for a couple hours after. Will probably not stay here again. We camped at Caspar Beach RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Although this park is near a beautiful cove on the ocean (calm enough for kayaking), the park itself is very crowded. The sites are very close together (our slide out was within 6 inches of our neighbor) and not that level. The personnel were friendly and helpful. It was a good base to tour the area of Mendocino and Fort Bragg (be sure to check out the Skunk Train) but I doubt we would camp here again. We camped at Caspar Beach RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed one night at this park. The sites are very close together and access for large RVs is not easy. The wi-fi was spotty. The laundry room had three washers and dryers and was expensive compared to other RV parks. The staff was friendly. The park was across the street from the beach, not on the beach. We would not stay here again. We camped at Caspar Beach RV Park in a Motorhome.

We have stayed here about a dozen times over the past 5 years (family in the area). It is the best park in the area. That said, it is going downhill. We last stayed here in June 2012 and now (October 2012) the park is noticeably less maintained, less clean, and less appealing. It looks like a change in ownership / management with no one really taking care of things. Trash containers without lids, debris in the park, etc. We really did like this park and have rated it highly in the past. I really hate to see it go downhill.

We feel as though we were mislead by the website. It shows beautiful sites with grass and spacious vistas. Wrong! It was packed with barely enough room between RVs. It was also dirty and loud. The only redeeming feature was the beach directly across the road from the park. We will never visit this park again. We camped at Caspar Beach RV Park in a Motorhome.

Not a bad campground. Very busy, but it is summer and it is right by the beach in California. Lots of friendly families, everyone respectful. Has tight sites but otherwise a great place to stay . We will visit again. We camped at Caspar Beach RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This RV park is great for groups (such as ours) where a bunch of people can reserve way in advance and take out all the long sites closest to the front of the park. Then we set up about 4 tables and feed 24 to 30 on abalone every night. Electrical is iffy sometimes, and some had trouble keeping breakers from breaking. Have stayed here for 7 years in a row with 6 or 7 sites taken yearly. Great times, and staff is friendly and efficient. Could use some upgrading, but a great place from which to explore. Convenient location between Mendocino and Fort Bragg. We camped at Caspar Beach RV Park in a Motorhome.

The location is great for visiting Mendocino and the State Parks in the area. We paid $35 for a back in site with 30 Amp and full hookups with our Good Sam discount. The campground was not busy during our stay which was a very good thing as the campground is not designed for newer RV units - perhaps it was built back when no one had slides and everything was shorter in length and width or the owners are too greedy and care more about the number of sites than comfort of their clients - not sure which, but it is brutally tight. The roads going in and out were difficult to navigate with our 34 ft Class A and it really doesn't help when park staff park their vehicles on the narrow roads at turns. The bush across the road from the bathrooms needs a trim. The dump station is horribly located. Good luck getting out if someone is using the dump and good luck using it if you have a big rig. The campground has a lot of mobile homes and long term residents. The long term residents have their own area. The sites are way too close together and are partially dirt and partially concrete pads - two lines of pads - our front tires were on the mud. If we had neighbors, our slide would have been over there picnic table and I had to move our picnic table so that our step wouldn't hit it. The back in sites were lacking grass and were muddy. We backed on to a very small, slow moving stream. We had no room for our tow vehicle. I can't imagine this place full. Furthermore, many tent behind the RVs (across the creek). I have no idea where they would park. I would not be happy if a neighbor had a fire nor would we ever think to have one - the fire would be WAY TO CLOSE to the motorhome. The road to get to the campground is also a bit of an adventure, but if you made it on the 1 from the 101 heading south, this road will be similar - go slow and you'll be fine. Big rigs with large tow vehicles may want to detach if the road is really busy. The lady in the store was polite and happy to take our money, but would not provide any information on the area and then wondered why the campsite was so dead. She couldn't wait to get rid of us - "okay, bye bye now" - code for stop asking me questions about the area. The store does have kayak rentals, surf boards, and diving gear. It is also a short walk to a nice beach and we could hear the gentle barking of the sea lions in the morning and evenings. The Wi-Fi worked well. We would not stay here again.

We camped here over the new year's holiday and it wasn't that busy. We had some rain & some gorgeous sun but this place was pretty wet nonetheless. The location cannot be beat as it is directly across from the beach and Mendo & Fort Bragg are both a few miles away. I would agree that this place is not for big rigs as the spots are really tight. We have a 27ft Class C with no slides, but no one was on either side of us so it was great. All utilities worked great, including Wi-Fi, but cell service was very spotty. I would definitely come back here in the fall/winter/spring but in summer I bet it is too crowded. We camped at Caspar Beach RV Park in a Motorhome.

Very crowded and hard to get into sites. Very narrow winding road in from the highway. Great location across road from a beautiful beach. Lots of potential. Okay facility, great location. We camped at Caspar Beach RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

My spouse and I are veteran campers/backpackers from the northwest. Hands down this was the absolute WORST camping experience of our lives. We regret having just not kept on driving instead of wasting our time at this campground, not to mention risking our health. 1. The tent sites are horrible, tiny and crowded in between RV's. 2. Our site smelled like rotting fish guts and dog doo. 3. The restrooms were filthy, unkempt, and stinky. 4. We never bothered with trusting the water for teeth brushing or even washing after our visit to the toilet. 5. Warning: this is more of a permanent RV park than campground. Consider yourselves warned! We camped at Caspar Beach RV Park in a Tent.
