This is a nice clean State Park campground. Sites are pretty much level and very roomy. Some have electric for a few $ more, ours did not. While it is mostly dry camping, there is a dump station with good fresh water available. The kids enjoyed a clean playground. Some sites are pull through, others are back in. Pay showers are clean. The big draw, of course, is the cavern tour. It cost about $50 for our family of 6. We were with a group of about 30 other folks, following a guide through chambers of beautiful underground formations. This tour requires some physical strength, as there are some 600 stairs to climb/descend if I recall correctly, and there are lots of places to bonk your head on. It's kind of out of the way, but if I come through here again, I'd consider staying here.
We stayed here based mostly on the price (with Passport America discount), and for $13 for a site with full hook ups, we didn't expect a whole lot. Entry off the narrow, two lane road is very tight. The whole park is tight, and we needed to disconnect our toad to make it in our site due to small radius turns and other vehicles (our motor home is only 31 feet: good luck with bigger ones). Staff is very friendly and helped us with parking. The whole place has a "fish camp" kind of feel to it, with crab boats, cookers, etc. available at extra cost. Showers weren't dirty, just not what I'd like to call clean. Leave your flip flops on. Wi-Fi worked fine. I'd love to come up again as a "guy's trip," and do some crabbing (they say September is the best time), and for that, I'd stay again.
We happened upon this park on our drive down the coast, looking for a place the kids could go play at the beach. The site we had was huge, easily a pull through with our toad attached. We had full hook ups, and the Wi-Fi worked well. Shower house was only about 30 yards away and they were clean. The beach is fantastic. It is one of those beaches you can be 50 yards out and only in waist deep water. At low tide, really fun tide pools were there to explore. Our kids were delighted, and at the price, we were too! We will definitely be back.
We stayed here after a long drive down the coast, and we were simply looking for "any port in a storm," as we were tired of driving and the kids were done. If you don't know it's here, you'll drive right past the place, as it doesn't exist in the Good Sam book we have. Basically, this place is a field with hookups. Ours was W/E only, and there is no dump site. Wi-Fi worked well. It's mostly level, and if you're in the front row, you'd have a view of the ocean, otherwise you're looking at other rigs. While kids are welcome, there's nothing for them to do that I saw. There is a nice paved pathway that leads out to a place to view the rugged ocean shore and scary looking harbor entrance (as well as a Geocache). At the price, I didn't expect a whole lot. I'd stay again if the price remains low.
Stopped here as it was about the only place to stay before we crossed the bridge into San Francisco. I normally won't spend $54 ($60 if not Good Sam member) for a camp site, but the kids needed a pool. Pool is small and fairly cold. Nice warm showers though, and no timers or quarters needed. The rest of the park is very clean, with fairly level gravel sites. One thing that was irritating was the traffic noise in the morning. Apparently a lot of trucks use some nearby road and are fond of using their Jake brakes. We'll stay here again if no other options.
Second time for us at this park. Clean and quiet park, with a small pool for the kids to play in. They were not allowed into the hot tub due to age. Morning pancake breakfast for a couple dollars. The big draw for us is the 4th of July fireworks show, which is lit off about 1/8 of a mile away from the park. They shot off over 17,000 shells in 1/2 hour. Lots of stuff to do in town all day, too. We'll definitely be back.
Nice grassy areas around decent size sites. Attached water park with extra cost was the big draw for our family on a 100+ degree day. Clean and quiet. Cost mentioned could be a dollar or two either way. Can't remember exact price. We'll stay here again if it's on our way.
We stopped here for night one of our long trip. We had called ahead for reservations after reading the description in the Passport America book. Rate was $10 + $3 for a "resort fee". Not sure what that buys, as I never saw anything I'd consider a "resort". Campground is clean, and has a decent pool. Other than that, it is a kind of unremarkable place. Not bad, just not great. For $13 it was a good deal.
This park is very nice, with a clean, well groomed look to it upon arrival. Sites are level gravel, with a paved area for the picnic table. Wi-Fi is only available in the reception/pool area, which is irritating when they advertise Wi-Fi. The only real problem we had was with the fact that they charge an extra $3 per child (we have 4 traveling with us), then they close the pool early (7pm) to kids so that seniors (who did not pay extra) get the last hour of pool time by themselves. With the extra fee for kids, this was one of the more expensive campgrounds we stayed at on a 2 month summer trip.
We stayed one night on our 2 month trip here. The staff was amazingly friendly, giving us a tour of the facilities. The campground is basically a gravel parking area for motor homes and trailers, and a grassy area for tents. They also have 5 cabins for rent. There is a nice common area with books and big tv. A kitchen is available for use as well. The main draw is the hot springs. There is a pond that is about maybe 1/5 acre, fed by hot springs that made the average water temperature on the day we were here 100 degrees. Wade over to a different section and the water would be warmer or cooler, depending on proximity to the water inlet... different and fun!
