The wind becomes very strong daily, from mid morning to after sun down (it was blowing hard when I went to bed at 10:00). This was my experience, and that it is constant is evidenced by the new trees all being wind blown from the N.E. The park was not oriented towards having rigs block the wind, but instead, generally you park with the wind. Amenities are nice, but, don't plan to spend any time outside of your motorhome. You can't put your awning up, because of the wind, and, the RV spots are mostly southern exposure! When we stayed, there were about five RVs in the park. We voiced that we were not happy with the spot due to the sun, and no offer of a different site was offered. Plan on getting tears in your slide out awnings. Here's the kicker, they give a disclosure that they are not responsible for "awnings" due to wind, and they should not be left out. Great, a resort park that suggests you stay with your slideouts retracted! The price point is on par with other "resort" parks, but, when you consider the inherent deficiencies in the park, it seems pretty high.
This is our fourth time here. Nice campground, particularly for the location. The workers are very accommodating. We called on the way from a very long day of driving and asked for a pull through instead of our the site we had reserved. Asked what was available, they gave us the sites, and allowed us to pull right in without stopping, and select the site. As to the tent city aspect. Yes, there are a lot of people, children running around playing, and enjoying the "beginning" stage of camping. They are not particularly near the RV camping, and, unless you are VERY sensitive, this should not effect your enjoyment. Well deployed security (I mean handcuffs etc.) walked around all evening. Not that there was a hint of a problem, but, if you had a concern, they were available. The RV sites are narrow, although, some on the end, are quite nice. However, we're here on a Friday evening, and, no one is next to me, or across. Most of the activity is in the "tent city" If you want to be in the middle of the wine country, this is as good as it gets. We've stayed at the Fairgrounds in Napa and Calistoga, and believe me, I'll take this place any time. Just have the RV spirit, and you'll love it!
One of the nicest parks we've ever stayed at. HOWEVER, the state of Colorado is a bit greedy, they charge a daily use fee for both the TOAD and the M.H. What is really ironic is that they do not charge the same if your living unit is towed. The nightly rate shown above reflects this. Great trails, well maintained campground, you cannot get better rving than this!
Everything you could want in a campground at 1/2 the price. Perfect location, beautiful views, terrific trails. Each campsite has a nice fire pit, although, the rustic nature of the picnic tables are not very functional. Wifi is free, and good reception, but did not work the first night. Staff was much less then helpful with this. Did I mention how expensive it is. On the other hand, it's Santa Barbara, if the state campgrounds are full, and you want the facilities of an RV resort, you just cannot beat this place. One side benefit to the price is there are many sites available without need of reservation, at least this time of year.
Pleasant Park, nice if you have a particular reason to be near town. The pool and jacuzzi were NOT working when we visited. Quite a few permanent residences. WIFI access was excellent, and, fairly reasonable at $20 for the week. Boomers's arcade next door could be noisy if you have the wrong spot. Near wineries, on N. side of town though. Good SAM and AAA discount brought down cost by 10%
Sites very close together, but, close into town, very convenient location. Very accommodating in office, cannot reserve spots, but, always seem to have some place to park with at least power. Also has a common dump area.
