Wow, what a location! 15 min to Santa Barbara and directly on its own incredible beach with pounding surf. Sites are somewhat parking lot style with dirt patch behind them but the setting made up for it. Train behind park is Amtrak so I didn't notice anything before or after 8am-8pm and wasn't bothered by it. Definitely on the spendy side but worth it for a few days. Staff was friendly but camp host was a little rude and intrusive. There is almost no lighting so carry a flashlight at night, it was pitch dark.
You can definitely see the affect of CA budget cuts here, but this is still a wonderful park. Bathrooms marginally clean, overall setting is unbeatable and sites are huge. Even though the CA State Park map says there are hook-ups, there are none. Come prepared to dry camp and plan to dump out elsewhere. Extra cars are add'l $10/nt.
Beautiful park, most sites have water and electric only. Large, grassy sites, wonderful walking trails. Unbelievably nice for $20, especially after camping in CA state parks where it is up to $60 to dry camp.
Very clean, nice grassy sites, across the street from the water. You do enter past a lumber yard and almost think you might be in the wrong place but the access was wide open when I was there and I had no problem manuevering with my 38' truck/trailer combo. Wifi was free and reliable. Would definitely stay here again.
So the septic and bathroom issues mentioned in previous reviews seem to be resolved. There was no smell and a brand new building with bathrooms; the old building is being torn down. You can hear highway noise but where I was in #7 it was faint enough to sleep through. I liked the setting in the woods and I noticed lots of family friendly amenities such as a fort, mini golf, pool, activity center etc. The hike down the creek is a steep but well maintained trail. Wifi is $3.00/day.
This small, family owned park has a great location and lots of charm. Most of the campers there are long term but they have a few nice sites available for short term/overnight. Road within the park is rough (broken up pavement and/or gravel) and it is on a steep hill. Sites 7-10 are the easiest access and back up to a creek.
Absolutely loved this place and extended my stay by several nights. Beautiful lakeside setting, large lots with picnic table and BBQ/firepit. Only a few of the spots have sewer, but the dump station is convenient and easy to use. Lots of grassy areas; paddle boat and kayak rentals; WiFi access under a canopy at one end of the park. You can walk around the entire lake (about 3 miles). It's behind an upscale residential neighborhood and is a wonderfully quiet and relaxing spot. What an incredible find! If you have Passport America, it's only $11/night Sun-Thurs. Only downside: no swimming allowed in the lake.
There is road noise, no pool, no grass, not great for dogs as there is nowhere to walk them. It is an older park, level lots with picnic tables. There is a water refill machine at .25 cents a gallon, laundry room, pool table, lending library including movies, activities, friendly residents and the wifi access is good. It is not a place I would stay again unless I just needed to sleep, do laundry and run.
