This is our fourth time at Christmas, visiting Campland. Loved it the other three years; this year, I had to give it a 5 out of 10. As I checked in, a flyer was posted on the registration door saying the fireworks were canceled, which is the least of my worries, but when you pay in advance of 100 per night, you would hope they would send an email. The registration clerk (female) has checked me in the last three out of four years, and needs work on her professionalism, politeness, and just being nice. Used the Jacuzzi that night, and the temperature needed to be elevated, in addition to the hot water in the locker room. Complained, but it was the same, and then reduced to 90F on the 1st and the 2nd. I guess they figured the high rollers left, but we were still paying 100 per night for our bay front site. No tent for New Year's Eve Party, no explanation. Something was mentioned about a city ordinance(?) Also, our neighbors in H18 were a bit loud with their wonderful speaker system of their toy hauler, and had a good time with games, laughter, and of course music until 11pm. I think the park should reevaluate their Quiet Time of 10pm.
Love this park! We just returned from the Memorial Day Weekend and yes it was full, but the clientele is very respectful of everyone, no "ya-hoos." We camped near one of the ponds, and even though it was pretty, the ducks did wake us up one morning. We brought our sound machine, and that was cured.
After living and camping in California, this campground is nothing as what I feared: it isn't that tight; yes we were able to pull our slide out and could have with the awning (but it rained early the next morning). I found the sites to be what it is: a large campground for 325 RVs. I would come back here again, especially in June, as one night the temperature was down to 33F!
We were pleasantly surprised to find the Rye Patch campground, while returning from Wyoming. It was in the AAA campground book, and we decided to give it a look. We stayed next to the river, and the campground was quiet, due to after July 4th weekend. I would definitely stay there again, en route to or from our journey.
