Friendly couple of people managing the place - very helpful getting set up. They assign the sites when you get there. Sites are very close together, but there are lots of trees scattered out, and our site was very level. No picnic tables or fire rings, and the campsite surface was dirt. But the hookups worked fine.

Fairly quiet at night, but there were a couple of groups of loud talkers after 10pm with no enforcement by management. They were quiet by 11:30.

Bathrooms were kind of old and dirty at times. They were out of toilet paper once in the ladies room. No place for kids to play - gravel driveways. But there are some woods just across the street which our kids enjoyed.

Overall it just seemed like you didn't get much for the top dollar ($45/night) price. But Shaver Lake is in high demand in the summer and especially holiday weekends, so I'm sure that's the reason. It's about half monthly renters and lots of big rigs. Not bad if you don't plan to hang around the campsite all day. We camped at Ponderosa Trailer Park in a Tent Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

You're about a 5-10 minute walk to the little town of Shaver Lake with casual restaurants, a decent little hardware store, etc.

The Park is nice and shaded. I felt like we were staying in the forest. I love the town and the staff was great. This is a great place to escape the city and enjoy the mountains. We camped at Ponderosa Trailer Park in a Motorhome.

This was a convenient park to stay in while exploring the Shaver Lake area. The sites are all dirt so you need to watch the dust and bring mats. You can walk into town or to the shore of Shaver Lake. No amenities (cable or Wi-Fi) since it is mostly long term residents or folks who leave their RVs and come up on weekends. We got cell but no Wi-Fi. Nice friendly managers. It's impossible to get into Camp Edison as they book a year out. This worked well for short notice. We camped at Ponderosa Trailer Park in a Fifth Wheel.
