Clean park, well kept. Very close to highway. Very small place, no amenities, no place for children to play. In town. Room to walk dogs behind the park. Good for a stopover to see Joshua Tree National Park.
The park is clean and green. It's more of a full-time resident park rather than a vacation RV park. We were handed a couple of dozen pages of rules. The park is near a fairly busy road and also has planes flying overhead. Children are to be kept next to your RV, so it's safe to say it's not really child-friendly. It's quite suitable for a one-night stay. We felt safe here. The residents are quiet. Both restrooms were closed for repairs. Wi-Fi is no longer free: It's $3.99/day or you can buy a weekly or monthly Tengo plan. The Wi-Fi is strong.
This park has it all: it's immaculate, it has Wi-Fi, full hookups, a huge laundry room, a huge pool, a gym, a fenced dog park (separate for the size of dog), several large TV's and lounge areas. Plus, on weekends they have dinners you can buy for $8 or so in the dining room. There are tons of social activities. The place was full of RVs of all sizes. And both staff and guests are very friendly. Typical of Arizona, there was minimal grass (but what there was was wonderfully green) and lots of rock, but the park was also landscaped with beautiful cactus. And it was spotless! There is some train noise, but it wasn't significant. Only one problem: we moved midway through our stay because we extended it, and the Wi-Fi wasn't as strong as in the far back right corner. If Wi-Fi is seriously important, the back right corner seemed to be a better spot for it.
Lovely state park with very large sites, large, new bathrooms. Water/electric only; dump station. Lots of fairly easy to hike trails. Very quiet even when at capacity. Close to shopping. We would certainly return here.
Super quiet, good-sized spots, very popular winter destination for snowbirds. Beautiful sunsets. Lovely views. Some permanent RVs in one part of the campground. Large campground. Very pet friendly. Many places to walk dogs off leash right outside of the campground. This place literally shuts down around 7 p.m. - it's very quiet all night. We've camped here before and will return.
Large dirt sites in an old ghost town. The town itself is a short walk up the hill and is a neat tourist attraction. Lots of places to roam and walk dogs. The camp is kept very clean. It's in a quiet area.
We were one of two rvs in this park in Jan. 2012. It's very well kept. It's hard to find, however; although it's on Chance, there is no signage. Look for the guard shack at the gate. We rated this a 6 because there is a nearby train, and the fairgrounds is next to the CA Air National Guard and those planes are loud at night. If you're just looking for a one-nighter, this place is a good deal for the price. There is also plenty of dog walking room.
We have been camping at Dillon Beach (Lawson's Landing!) since the 1950s. It's our #1 favorite place. Lawson's is completely rural. You drive in, fill up your water tank, and find a place to park. It's all open --mostly green pasture land -- with no designated spaces. (There are some way in the back by the Marina that may have actual designated spaces, but for the most part, it's just "find a place you like and set up camp." There is no electricity. RVers use generators. There is a dump station to use on the way out. If you're looking for a place with fabulous restrooms, lots of services, and full hook-ups, this is not the place for you. If you want some place absolutely beautiful where kids can run around and make noise, where you can walk your dogs off leash on the beach (most people do this), and where you can create family memories, this IS the place for you. There's a marina with a dock at the end of the road with lots of fishing and boating. There's also a great little store just before you get to Lawson's, with a nice restaurant next door.
Another reviewer stated that Lawson's has ocean views. Most people camp on the dune side, which doesn't have an ocean view. Some (monthlies?) park near the Marina, which has a fabulous view. We've been camping here for 25 years in tents and a trailer; my husband's family has camped here since the 50s. This is a fabulous place if you love being near the ocean, don't want to feel boxed in (warning: summer weekends, it's crowded), and don't mind that you don't have any hookups AT ALL. RV camping is best for stays of longer than a day or two. You fill your tank when you come in and use the dump station when you leave. There are only a few water spigots so tent camping = roughing it. There are only a few restrooms but many outhouses. We travel all over the US and Lawson's is by far our favorite retreat. It's a fabulous place for dogs and kids, too. Great for walks. I can't say enough good things about it.
This is a fabulous place to take children since there’s a fenced pool and enough space to ride bikes. Kids are every where. The park is literally right next to the freeway (you can see the tops of the trucks going by) so noise is constant; however, you get used to it. It is particularly kid-loud in the RV spaces next to the pool. This is a dog-friendly park. Dumpsters are emptied really early – 6:30 a.m. or so. The RV sites are tiny: about the width of a 2-car driveway. The park is conveniently located. It has strong WiFi. Also, there’s a mini farm with a free “petting zoo” type of atmosphere right next door (a short walk away) where you can buy produce, hot dogs, and treats, and also pet goats, sheep, a pony, etc. While we prefer nearby El Chorro Regional Park because it has large sites, privacy, costs less, and it is super quiet, we would stay here again if El Chorro were not available and if we couldn't find a site at one of the nearby RV parks in Grover Beach and area.
This is a small, quiet park with easy access to shopping. Strong Wi-Fi. It was very quiet at night: others really observe the quiet hours. Small, fenced dog area. Very dog friendly. Plenty of room to walk the dogs. Hand mini-store on site. Friendly and helpful staff. Gravel and dirt sites with lawns and picnic tables. Great pool for the kids. Right up our alley! THIS is camping! We would stay here again.
This is the noisiest park we've stayed in: and we have stayed in dozens in the past few years, traveling the US. Other reviewers failed to mention the multiple train crossings right next to this park, one of which is less than 3 blocks away! The train whistle blasts loudly several times in the middle of the night. Park workers are out early with leafblowers and emptying garbage cans to keep this place immaculate. The Wi-Fi is fast. The laundry room is large and spotless. The RV spaces are large and the "clientele" consists predominantly of very new, huge RVs (mostly motorhomes). We did not see or hear any children, and there is no playground. Children need to be supervised constantly. It's dog-friendly: there are lots of leashed dogs, with a huge open space next door to run dogs. The dog park in the RV park is not open yet. The spa was down for maintenance for 2 days (at least). The park is way overpriced; most similarly-equipped parks range in the $30s. They do not offer a Good Sam or AAA discount but do give a 5% VA or military discount. We would absolutely not stay here again. We need sleep and peace and quiet to enjoy an RV park.
Gravel park with little bits of lawn at most or all sites. Clean park with no amenities. Wi-Fi didn't work; laptop air card worked intermittently. Laundry room was spotless but was very busy, apparently because non-RVers from town also use it. Extremely windy town: too windy to enjoy being outdoors. It is OK for a one-nighter. There are other RV parks in Biggs nearby. Easy after-hours check-in.
This is a lovely RV park with large sites, picnic tables, lots of grass, huge trees, and great decor. The back area was our favorite as there is a huge open lawn behind the RV spots. It's a great value for the $. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The park has strong Wi-Fi internet. There is a wonderful dog park (one huge area for large dogs, the other for small dogs) just a short walk down the street. We extended our stay, it's such a nice place. We would certainly return here.
This is an exceptional park on waterfront property. We paid ~$50/night with a waterfront view "in the circle"; it costs less to have a non-view spot. On the circle, people walk by the water (and your RV) all day because the view is spectacular. Lots of grass; gravel parking spots. The park is pet-friendly, on-leash, with nice walking areas. Lots of dogs. The park attracts really big RVs; no tents are allowed. The WI-FI was super strong. We would absolutely stay here again.
This is a wonderful little park in a rural part of town; it's part of (next to) a working ranch, with cows, horses, a sheep, and a goat next door. It's quite beautiful here with grass, huge trees on the perimeter, and gravel. This is not a typical big-rig cement RV lot, and that's what makes it charming. There is plenty of free-run dog space next door. The owners are very dog friendly. There are no bathrooms, only a porta-potty, and there is no Wi-Fi (but air cards seem to work fine). But the lack of amenities are more than made up by the views, the peace and quiet, and the space.
Small, tidy park. Most sites are close together but newer sites at end offer more space and privacy. No picnic tables are provided, but there's not really room for them. Park has 2 single unisex bathrooms (1 stall/shower each). WiFi worked fine. There are few RV parks in this region. We would stay here again.
This is a lovely, wooded park with large sites that have plenty of shrubs/trees to offer privacy. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The park has a huge back lawn area which is great for walking dogs. This is a campground that would appeal to RVers who want a little wilderness around them, as opposed to lots of cement and manicured lawns. It's just 3 miles from "civilization" (shopping) yet it feels remote.
This is an exceptionally well-kept RV park with full amenities. It has lovely landscaping, excellent staff, and everything the big rigger wants. The staff was very helpful when we asked for a spot near the large dog area, which gave us a bit of extra room. It is not a rustic sort of place, so if you're looking for dirt/trees/wildlife, it's not for you. Even though the place is exceptionally clean, they aren't rule-crazy (no signs about keeping dogs off the grass or anything: just clean up after your pooch). We stayed 4 nights and would return. It's very dog friendly; there are nice fenced dog runs for small and large dogs. Plus, there's a trail that runs around the entire park. It's a quiet park.
Rate is with Good Sam discount. This is an exceptional park. The spaces are large, the park is full of huge trees and grass, and the grounds are immaculate. It's a holiday weekend, the campground is full, and it's still quiet. The park is some 9 miles from the freeway so there's no traffic noise at all. We have stayed at RV parks all over the country and this is now one of our favorites.
Rates: $18 dry camping, $22 with electric, $110 for 7 nights. There are lots of shade trees and mild winters which makes this a great snowbird location. It's quiet and pretty, surrounded by mountains. Dogs are supposed to be leashed, but there are nearby dirt fields where you can take your dogs off-leash. This is not your typical cement or gravel park, nor are there excessive rules about leaving your stuff outside. (I noticed a lot of comments about snowbirders who live here for months.) There are also lots of activities here, such as potlucks, book-sharing, etc. We'd certainly come back.
Somewhat near the train tracks but not so close the train is noticable, as it would be in some of the other RV parks in this town. Spaces are close together. Park is gravel but has some nice grass at each little site. Fairly quiet. Not a destination campground but fine if you're doing things in this area and need a place to stay.
Park was located next to an airport and train tracks. Nice amenities with a pool, small store, etc. Place was fairly barren (gravel and dirt sites, no scenery), but so is the entire region. It was fine for a one-nighter. Not a destination campsite.
Our family has camped here for 6 decades. It is one of our favorite places. This "campground" is a beautiful, open pasture land, an easy walk to the beach, and next to the sand dunes. There are no hook-ups. There are 2 bathrooms, but they're some distance away. Mostly, people use Porta potties. You fill your RV water tank when you arrive. There's a dump station to use when you depart. If you're tent-camping, this is a real roughing-it place. Love RV parks full of cement, gravel, where you're parked 5 feet from your neighbor and there's not much to see, but where you have full hookups and TV? Then Dillon Beach is not the place for you. Want a place that's lovely, quiet (except for summer holidays, when it is absolutely packed and can get rowdy), a place great to walk around, relax, take the dogs, etc.? Then this is your place. It's easier on families that have RVs. We've been here in everything from pup tents to trailers.
This is a lovely park, away from freeways, trains, and airports. So it's quiet! It's a huge lawn surrounded by trees, which makes it exceptionally pretty and unlike cement-and-gravel parks. The staff is very friendly, the bathrooms immaculate, and the neighborhood is a great place to walk dogs.
Easy to find near interstate. Small fenced dog park was very handy, plus you can walk dogs around the neighborhood. Has a playground for kids. Has a large laundry room. Special feature: this park has prepared, on-site bbq (pulled pork, ribs, etc.) which was delicious and less expensive than the bbq restaurants we've frequented in the midwest.
Park is conveniently located right next to the interstate. Amenities include a small store, a pool, laundry, and a nice playground for small children. The unfenced dog run parallels the frontage road next to the freeway.
Conveniently located right next to a major highway. Nice amenities such as a small store and restaurant. Very clean park that is big on rules such as parking, 5 mph speed limit, etc. Security force is out to enforce the rules. Would stay there again.
Park is immaculately maintained. Small sites but there's lots of grass so it beats a gravel lot. Huge, mowed grass dog run was wonderful. Near freeway but that's similar to most RV parks. Office staff was friendly. More of a resident park than a travel park; park is full of permanent RVers who keep their places spotless. No amenities other than the dog park, but for dog people, it's great.
Clean, well-managed park with huge RV spots, grassy areas (not just a gravel or asphalt park). Has a fabulous indoor pool and an adults-only jacuzzi. Right next to I-40, a heavily traveled-by-truckers freeway. Not too close to the airport. Stayed 3 nights, would stay here again.
This is an exceptionally clean, well kept park. The public restrooms are immaculate. The live music at night was very nice, as was the bbq and ice cream social. This park is right next to an airport (as well as train tracks) so it's fairly noisy for sleeping.
This is a no-frills park but with its absolutely beautiful view, who cares? It was quiet and convenient. The Wi-Fi was almost non-existent; it only worked if we sat next to the antenna with a laptop. But for one night, that wasn't a problem. I'd certainly stop here again because the reservoir view was truly spectacular.
This park has a nice indoor pool which was clean. It was unheated, but that's not necessary in the summer. We loved the park and have stayed here before. The only improvement I would suggest is that their WI-FI is somewhat unreliable. It was unavailable in the morning and late afternoon, and the park was fairly empty. We were there 3 nights this time.
