24 Parks near Woodfords, California

This a great find during the busy camping season. We stayed there the weekend after the fourth of July. Everywhere else was booked but this nice little place had several spaces. It is heavily wooded in tall evergreens with incredible mountain views and near a rushing creek (the West Fork of the Carson river) the sound was pleasing. The sites are short, we have a 22' class C but over 24-26' could be a problem. A few spots were longer but I saw only one pull through. Not for big rigs! Tent campers and small rig paradise. No hook ups but clean restrooms, some road noise. We loved it and with senior pass $8,(US Forest Campground) a bargain. Definitely will stay here again. - Syncro

This is a old forest service campground which is now being run by concessionaires and is keep up very clean. Primitive in the sense, no-hookups of any kind but very relaxing. - monaco cruiser

We loved this RV/tent park! Almost all the sites have water, sewer, and power. Some of the 'walk-in' tent sites don't have any amenities except gorgeous views. The host is fantastic! Very helpful and very friendly, as is Ryder, the host dog. All of the sites are spacious and nice. Some of the lower sites are right on the Carson River, but all are within walking distance of great fishing. There are restrooms and showers in the lower campground. If you are in the upper campground be aware that it's a longish and steep walk to the restrooms and showers! During business hours the cafe has a restroom available...but not in the middle of the night. There is some road noise from Highway 88 but at night it's very quiet. All sites have a fire pit and a picnic table- but at this time you can only use the fire pit at night since they are in a drought season. No fires during the day! The cafe is awesome- great meals and amazing pies, cookies and scones baked all day. There is also a small store with ice, some supplies and cold drinks. Sorensen's is 1/4 mile away and has a full restaurant. Everyone is very helpful and nice. We loved staying here but we aware that there is no phone service at all. Wi-Fi is available at the cafe during the day but very spotty. Sorensen's has Wi-Fi and no phone service. We will be back. Wonderful place! - Michelelyl

Small hillside/creek site in wooded valley. Eric was very friendly host. Pretty quiet site. Didn't use restrooms or showers so don't know about them. Really enjoyed a coffee and home-made scone and cake at the bar by the entrance. Would return if in the area. - visitor to usa

Pleasant campground in an incredible setting. Coming in on Hwy 88 from the West, it's not the first "Sorensens" venue. Each driver in our party made the same mistake. It's the second "Sorensens". At first we thought we made a mistake booking this campground. Quite the opposite! The beautiful trees and sounds from the Carson River made this an unforgettable journey. Sites 13 and 14 are the largest. Our 31 foot 5th wheel fit just fine in 14. The road is in need of some smoothing out. Beware that road has no turnaround. The campground manager is friendly and helpful. The cafe and store convenient. Would return here again. - Maltaman

Stayed during Memorial Day weekend. The park is far from everything, closest town had a population of 200, no cell nor Wi-Fi for the teens. Most camp driveways were a bit short and narrow. Restrooms and showers were kept fairly clean but showers need updating. Bring coins for showers. Nice hike to the waterfalls! The park has two pools, a warm swimming but full of kids and hot wadding pool with brown-green hue but no sulfur odor. Get to the pool early, waiting lines can be long in the afternoon. - RetUSAF

Great park. The hot springs pool is inexpensive and open daily. Well-spaced sites allow lots of privacy. Nice hikes in the area. - MysticRaven

Very quiet and scenic -- located in Giant Sequoia National Monument at 7000 feet, east of Porterville. Campground is not big rig friendly but is ok for smaller rigs and trailers. Roads to and from the San Joaquin Valley are twisty, steep, and narrow, but not impossible at all. There are a few water spigots available, but not at each campsite. There is a small store and restaurant nearby in Ponderosa, 2 miles away. Lots of hiking nearby. We will be back. - Prof Dan

This is a new Elks lodge and features 5 electric-only back-in sites at the front of their parking lot near the street entrance. Self-registration. AC voltage was good. The grounds were exceptionally clean and well manicured. If needed, water can be obtained from a lawn spigot near the edge of the RV parking sites, but no sewer dump is available here. There's some noise from Kimmerling Rd. out front during the day (which is surprisingly busy) but it's quiet at night. Verizon had a strong signal and AT&T medium signal strength here. This is a good place for a quick overnight stop and we'll definitely stay again.
NOTE: For the use of current Elks members only. - Gyropilot

Very nice smaller campground next to the casino. Doggy friendly, allowing small pens and plenty of shade and grass. Nice area to park while you wait for space available. You pull up to the kiosk and call into the main lobby for site number. Very nice and friendly. Restrooms and laundry are very clean and nice.
The park is small and a bit tight to navigate, but is doable. Recommend unhitching a tow car. Pull thrus look a bit short for longer motorhomes (>34ft) or fifth wheels. We would definitely stay again. - ButterflyDogs

My first review of this park. This web site is usually dead on but not this time. We had a back-in at the rear of the park. Very, very tight. Just a blacktop parking lot. The proverbial pass the Poupon with your neighbor. Slides very close to neighbor. Other sites may be OK but we could not wait to get out of there. Terrific park ten miles down the road. If you want easy access to a casino it might be the place for you. Did not go to casino. Would not go back. - pjstewart51

We stay here every year for about 3 total weeks on and off. We just love the area and consider it home away from home in summer. So pretty looking to west with view of Sierra's. Sites all have lawn and asphalt for parking rigs. Full hook ups with cable and good wi fi. Access to pool and Jacuzzis as well as exercise gym in adjoining hotel. Security patrols area and we have never had any negative activity in the park. - signaloil

This is an above average KOA but the price is above average as well. It it is Lake Tahoe! It is located right beside Hwy 50 and you do hear road noise. The sites are on dirt the road is paved and a little tight in spots and some sites would be a big challenge to park big rigs. Here are many tent sites and a few pull-throughs the rest are back-ins. The staff is friendly and quick to respond to any questions or concerns. This is bear country but we didn't see or hear of any while we were there. We had a site that had the small river behind us so the pleasant sound was awesome. I would have rated this park higher but the price was just too steep. - MJHP*28

The rate is based on Thousand Trails Elite membership using Encre Ready Camp Go. Sites are dirt, fairly level. Only a handful of satellite friendly sites and most were occupied by camp workers. Ovet the air reception was ok and cable as well but mostly basic channels. Family oriented and packed on weekends. Bears are a nuisance and get into garbage nightly. The disposal company does not provide bear proof dumpsters. Nice store, planned activities, decent pool but to cold for me. Staff excellent. Close to everything. Mid week the park is very quiet. We had site 306, that had low voltage. Fortunately we were able to plug in to box behind otherwise would have had to move. Park electrician had not made repair after 4 days. - venice

The rate advertised is not what we paid because of the extra charges. There is a $5 per day pet fee for each pet. When we ask what we get for the $5 no one could tell us. OH, you also pay extra for each child over a certain age. The park is full of pine tar. I had to clean my dog's paws every time we took him for a walk because he would have pine tar stuck between his pads. The Internet is only free for 1 hour in every 24 hours. To use it after your free hour it will cost you $3 per day per device. So, if you have a pet or a child over a certain age and have two devices you would like to connect to the Internet your rate increases by $11 per day. The sites are paved, with dirt side yards. The sites themselves are adequate but you will only have 30 amp service. If the price was not so high and they did not charge for all the extras I would have given this a slightly better rating. - joepi

The Blue Lakes Campgrounds are close to the junction of Highways 88 and 89 only 12 miles south of Lake Tahoe. There are three locations; Lower Blue Lake, Middle Creek and Upper Blue Lake with a total of about 50 sites for RVs and tents. To get to Middle Creek and Upper Blue lake, you need to travel on a good dirt road for about 1/2 mile but many big rigs as well as my class C had no issue. This is a remote and pretty primitive area. There is well water but no hookups of any type - -so be prepared to be "off the grid". Having said that, the area is beautiful and the lakes are stocked with trout. If you are looking for a great place to get-away this is a nice location - -and at this time of the year - - very few other campers. The elevation is about 7500 and the area closes when the snow flies - -about late October. - Charlie262

Tried to get into another park and just couldn't.... for months, so had to stay here.
This park is huge: lots of sites. The loop we were in was loud at night. People playing music in one site and people up late drinking right next to us (loud). We called in at night after hours, but nothing happened. We found out later the people staying next to us in a van and two tents, were employees. They have a 10pm quiet time listed in their literature, but their employees didn't follow it.
This is an older park and we noticed the big rigs having issues. They eventually got in, but it was not easy.
The did have a nice pool. Sites are dirt, roads are paved. The laundry was very big and worked well for us. There are no fire rings and no ground fires. The front office said we could rent a ring for 8.00 / night. We didn't do that.
For what you get it is over priced, but there are not many other options. - daa10496

We had a premium site that was level and long enough for or rig. Paved interior roads but dirt sites. Only had 30 amp service and it was hot but only able to run 1 AC. Pool was clean a b d temp was good. Super friendly staff and very accommodating. Was nice but 50 amp and paved sites would earn it a 10. Caught the restrooms just before cleaning. - signaloil

We made our reservation via their website, selecting a 50 amp FHU "prime" spot. Upon arrival, we were assigned a non-"prime" 30 amp site. After several minutes of near argument with the check-in staff person about "not needing a 50 amp site" he reluctantly changed our site to what we needed and had already paid for. Even though this part of the facility is open year around the water to our site was turned off and it took some effort to get staff to come turn it on. The sites in this section are close together and all dirt.
This facility is showing it's age. There are large potholes in the access roads and a number of bumps caused by frost-heaves and tree roots. The roadways wind through the trees but if you take it slow and are cautious most rigs can probably navigate them. The non-prime sites in the area we camped are generally 40' long and back up to another 40' site. They will be cramped if there are two long rigs back to back. The "prime" sites are back-in sites generally on the outside perimeter.
We have stayed here before but this will be the last time for us. - Saggio

After a long drive from Yosemite NP we found this park for the night. Our site wad very large and level although without any hookups. There is a nearby restroom and shower facilities but we were pretty much self-sufficient. We were fairly close to US Rt. 50 which meant road noise throughout the night but it was tolerable. We did the self check-in so we can't comment on the staff. If we ever return to this area we would use this place but would try to make reservations ahead of time. - KC8RXQ

We have camped here several times over a 20+ year period. We have had enjoyable visits in the past, but our latest was just adequate. The park is set among mature Ponderosa pines, which are beautiful, but maneuvering a large rig through them takes care. We saw several people having problems! The location is a mixed blessing. It is convenient to town services, and the beautiful Lake Tahoe with a nice beach is right across the road. The downside is the constant noise from busy route 50. We are full timers and travel in a 40' motorhome and pull a truck carrying an ATV and a motorcycle. I was not allowed to unload my motorcycle, as only 2 vehicles per site are allowed. The motorhome counts as one, and the truck counts as another. It makes no difference that the truck was towed in and there were only the two of us on the site. We had a site on the perimeter of the campground and there was a constant flow of people walking and riding bikes through our site to get to the road. I have been camping and RVing for 50 years, and have never seen so many rude and inconsiderate people. Based on this experience, you might want to avoid a site on the perimeter by the highway. All things considered, I don't think we will be in any hurry to return. - Boundertom

Really pretty park. We stayed in the B loop at the noise from HWY 50 wasn't unbearable. Nice trails lead off to across the street to beautiful Lake Tahoe. We will definitely stay again. - longlivethebullies
