This campground is a gem! Friendly staff, clean sites, quiet, easy access, good security, it has it all. But, if you're afraid of rattlesnakes, I wouldn't stay here. Given the proximity to the freeway, I am surprised to always hear about one or two snakes sighted during our visits. Come to think about it, we saw a very large coyote on our last visit who boldly came into our campsite. Of course, that is what camping is supposed to be about, right? Nature at its best! Keep your dogs close to your rig and they'll be fine.
While our site, F09, was excellent for it's location, water front, size, spacious, and cleanliness, the rest of the park was so densely populated that RVs were shoehorned in at an alarming rate. I have never seen more people in one spot in my life. Realizing that summer season is filled with kids on bikes, the campground management has figured out how to slot some type of trailer, tent, 5th wheel, Class A, or Class C into every square foot. Unless you have a waterfront location, do not go there for peace and quiet. The beach, market, or rental facilities can't make up for the congestion. On a plus note, there were security people everywhere for crowd control and check in was efficient.
The number one thing going for this park is that can be completely quiet, I mean, dead silent. If you want to get away from freeway noise, plane noise, the sound of cars and city, this is the place for you. It is far off the beaten track and you almost feel like you're lost when you see the entrance signs. The only real problem is that they have full timers sprinkled amongst the grounds and those folks have a different agenda than most travelers. When a full timer pulled up with their stereo blasting I assumed they would turn it off when their car stopped. Not so. They opened their doors and proceeded to "entertain" the rest of us with their music. It was so loud that we moved to another more remote spot. The other problem was that the asphalt roads were filled with potholes making walking dangerous. I don't know if we'll go back because of the funkiness of the park. That is a shame because this park could be so much nicer as the location is serene. The office staff were friendly, the sunrise wonderful, but all in all they've got a lot of work to do with their site.
A last minute reservation got us in this very quiet park. Since we were at the end of the winter season, things were very mellow. This is a senior resort so I don't think children would be made to feel very welcome. That aside, the grounds are clean and neat, the feeling is very relaxed. I'd go again.
The only downside to this park is that the advertised wi-fi doesn't cover the whole park. If this is important to you, request a site near the clubhouse. Other than that, this park is quiet, clean, and serene. Door to door service to the casino is a plus. While I don't gamble, the restaurant selections are numerous and we had a great meal.
Set in a beautiful valley, Lake Skinner is one of our favorite locations. The camp hosts are very helpful, the restrooms clean, full hookups for a very reasonable price are some of the many benefits. The only downside is that you can get very noisy groups playing loud music, which destroys the peaceful ambience. This time we didn't have that problem. Christmas Eve and Christmas Day were quiet and peaceful, just what we wanted. An extra benefit is the county website for reservations, it couldn't be better.
The owners work overtime to make your experience here enjoyable. Excellent walking trails, cozy meeting areas, quiet spaces with enough room between them for quiet time makes this park and excellent choice. We truly enjoyed our long weekend there.
We just got back from Ocean Mesa, and it was a lovely experience except for two major faults. I was hoping for a quiet weekend to catch up on some work, and chose this campground since WiFi was advertised. I figured the extra cost was worth it. Much to my chagrin, there was no WiFi available. Walking up to the office I was told that they didn't know what was wrong, and although the office staff told me they had rebooted the system, I was never able to connect. Ergo, no Internet. And while the park is immaculately clean, and the view nice, $70 for one night is too steep given the amenities. I wish I could go back again, but the cost to benefit ratio just isn't there for me.
