There are four loops so you can decided if you want to be in mostly full sun (Maple Loop), part sun/shade (Oak Loop), or heavily wooded (Hickory and Trillium Loops). I was in Maple Loop and loved it. Had heavy greenery all around, but clear enough skies for satellite TV from rooftop of the motorhome. Lots of elbow room between sites. Heron Lake and the beach down the road is great with boat rentals, little store, etc. Would definitely return here!
I was concerned about leveling from some of the comments I saw, but when I called and spoke to the manager, she was so nice and friendly and told me about the sites on the creekside. They are mostly pull throughs and very level. Bonus for me was the nice trickling sound of the creek that could be heard from my open bedroom window: Site K. Would definitely stay here again.
I guess it's all in what you're looking for, or what your expectations are, but this campground was perfect for me during my stay. No, it's certainly not a fancy "resorty" type place with cement pads and perfectly landscaped grounds, but I really liked how it was a natural setting - like being in a state/national park but with full hookups. The kayak trip down the river was great and I found the owners and work campers extremely friendly and helpful.
This worked out as a great stay for me as I was heading north on the Parkway. Being able to stay close to the parkway in a scenic, quiet, safe campground with full hookups was good enough. But it was great being just a couple of miles from Mabry Mill. That put me there in the morning when I was fresh and able to really enjoy walking around the beautiful grounds there. I'd definitely stay there again - only problem is Verizon cell phone and air card for internet access rarely worked and reception was terrible. But if you can do without that for a while, this is a fantastic stop.
Great park for enjoying nature at its finest. Huge cypress trees on a scenic lake, big sites spaced far apart, immaculate park and facilities, friendly campground hosts and staff - what's not to love? I really enjoyed my time here and wish I had more than 2 days to spend. Would definitely return.
While KOA is not usually my choice due to corporate "cookie-cutter" qualities, I was really impressed with this campground. More spacious sites than usual with good but not intrusive tree cover and easy in and out - and the most convenient full hookup park for exploring Savannah. But besides that, when you find nice sites with great management, you've really found a winner! The managers were some of the best I've seen in almost 6 years of full timing. They're experienced RV'ers themselves, so know what they want in a park and go above and beyond to provide it to their guests. Immaculate restrooms/showers and friendly service. Highly recommend it!
Being able to camp not only near the Redwoods National and State Parks, but to be surrounded by these trees at your home campsite is the best! The new owners are friendly and enthusiastic about the upgrades they have in the works and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
A nice, quiet park only 4 miles from Sequoia National Park entrance. Enthusiastic, friendly new owners are in midst of big upgrade process following major cleanup effort from previous owners' neglect. Plans are in the works for free wi-fi and 50 amp service in 2006 - then it will be a "10" for sure!
I stayed 4 nights and really enjoyed the riverfront site and being able to have a big campfire right on its banks. Even though there are long-term residents, the park is immaculately maintained and the owners obviously are very "hands-on" and care about the place a lot. I thought it was an excellent base from which to explore the area and check out Wildlife Safari!
