This is a real Diamond of a park. Beautiful spot right on the bay with an on-site marina! Very clean and beautifully kept grounds and amenities. The sites are grassy and are all flat and look pretty level. The pool, bathrooms and showers are all very clean. Great deal for the price! They charged us $2 for cable TV (which was not mentioned on their website), but is still a great deal for the location. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again!

This is a beautiful park! Pretty ponds, impeccably kept grounds. Great price for what you get (our price was after our Good Sam discount). Very nice, roomy sites, concrete pads with grass in between. Really nice/clean recreation room with pool table, ping pong, foosball and air hockey table: all in great shape. Nice community room and an exercise room. The owners were very nice and friendly, they even gave us a little "welcome gift." We would stay here again.

Great location right on the ocean. Can hear the waves. Large, grassy sites, but no buffers between rigs. Mostly pull-throughs. Extremely nice/friendly hosts. They let us have a late check-out so we could sight see before heading down the road. Our rate was the cost without cable (I think cable is $4 more). We would stay here again.

The normal rate is $25, with a $5 discount for Good Sam/AAA etc. No frills, but its a good inexpensive place to base from for going through the Redwoods and Avenue of the Giants. Ferndale was a wonderful town with lovely restored Victorian homes. The host is very helpful and nice.

This feels like a campground! Very woodsy and rustic-surrounded by redwoods. We had to do a lot of adjusting to get our 30 foot 5th wheel into the space they gave us. They have a path to the river for hiking. For us it was fine for an overnight, but we could have done without the speed bumps and narrow drive through the park. The office personnel were friendly and nice.

We dropped in for an overnight. This is a very clean, well kept park. Sites are fairly close together, but they have nice grassy grounds. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The $37 price was with our AAA discount.

This is a good place for an overnight stay. Most of the sites look like seasonal rvers so they don't have a lot of empty spots for drop-ins. We were in a nice level, long site. Convenient location-close to town and harbor. The owners are extremely helpful and accommodating. The website advertised $22. We dropped in and we were quoted $25. I told them the website was $22 ,and they honored that price. (Checks and cash only). Good laundry $1.50 wash 25 cents to dry (15 mins).

This is a great find! It is one of 2 Douglas County parks on Winchester Bay Harbor (Park "A" and Park "B" which are right next to each other. ) This one is Park "A". Park "A" is for drop-ins only. Park "B" accepts reservations. Check out the website for details. We paid $20 + $3 for cable which is optional. The sites have a view of the water and boats in the marina just across the street. (Note, they didn't have an option in the review to show it is on a harbor, so I had to choose "no" under the water category, however, you can see the water and walk across the street to it). Our site backed up to the woods -very nice and private in the back. Plenty of room for backing into the space. The hosts were wonderful. Delicious food at the fish and chips restaurant just across the street,(which is a boat floating on the water - Ungers Bay restaurant). We would stay here again.

This is a "stopover" type of place to park. It's the closest place to this entrance of the park without driving too far on mountain roads. We were hoping to stay at a campground in Sequoia National Park, but after pulling our 30' fifth wheel half way up on 180 towards the Wilsonia entrance, decided we had had enough of the steep pitches and narrow road so went back down and parked at King's Canyon. It is primarily a mobile home park, so lots of long-termer's, however, the RV parking is right near the entrance, all in the same block area. They did have 30 amp, but I don't think I saw any 50 (not sure about 20). The weird thing is that the switches show from 50 to 60 amp written on them, but the plug-in is only for 30. The sites are on a grassy area so not perfectly even, but not too bad to level. There are a couple of shade trees here, but mostly full sun. The caretaker was pretty non-existent, so just write your check, put it in the envelope and check out whenever! (A neighbor told us check-out was noon, but that the caretaker was really laid-back and flexible).

Beautiful setting overlooking Jordanelle Reservoir and the mountains. The sites are situated far apart from each other so are fairly private (although no large trees), but they are very poorly designed. (Did they have any idea of what width/length spot is required to park a rig?) We were in a 30' fifth wheel and even though we were in a pull-through, we had to go back and forth a lot just to fit in, and it was impossible to get into the site without going off the narrow paved path. None of the sites looked very level: all required lots of leveling. We were lucky to get a spot by just dropping in. It was full over the weekend so make reservations if you can! We would stay here again in spite of the difficulties, because it is a beautiful setting and very inexpensive.

Good inexpensive place to base from, to tour Yosemite if you don't want to drive on steep mountain roads. It is 36 miles from Arch Rock entrance. The RV Area 1&2 is in a wide open nice grassy field. It has water and electric only, and road noise, but we didn't have a problem sleeping. We tried parking in RV Area 3, but it was too much of a leveling problem. Area 5 has full hookups but is basically on a dirt driveway. The dump station is at the far end of RV Area 5. No office: just grab an envelope and write a check. (There are no space numbers, so grab any envelope. The envelopes have numbers on them so they can figure out who paid for which RV. There is a 'receipt' inside the envelope to put on your vehicle). Plan on at least a 40 minute drive to the entrance of the park and lots of driving once inside. It is beautiful though: well worth it. It would be nice to camp inside the park since it is a lot of driving to and from each am/pm.

Great location! $38 including tax with no discounts. It is right on the shuttle line and walking distance from shops/restaurants. Sites on the river are very nice. The mix between tenters and campers was nice since tenters usually have campfires which we enjoy smelling. We only stayed 2 nights so they put us near the bath/showers which were noisy and busy. They demanded that we tell them if we were staying 2-3 nights or more, because that determined where they put us. We have never had that stipulation before: we like to "play it by ear" depending on how we like the area. The convenient location made up for the lack of helpfulness shown by the desk workers. They offered no extra info or help, such as which road was best to take, to enter our site (which we had to find out the hard way). The "heated pool" was COLD! They had two Trailway busloads of teens tenting (good for them, but a bit noisy since we were right by the bathrooms). We would stay again mainly due to the great location.

We paid $33 for water/electric. To add sewer was $41. Beautiful campground nestled in the trees. Feels more like a campground than RV park since there are tents, tepees and lots of space between sites. The roads inside the grounds are quite narrow due to overhanging and encroaching trees, although we didn't have a problem in the 30' fifth wheel. Very clean campground with weekend activities and a breakfast option every day at the KOA Breakfast Wagon. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Great place to base for day trips to Sedona (Oak Creek Canyon is a must!), Walnut Canyon, Sunset Crater, Wupatki National Monument and Grand Canyon. We would stay here again.

We stayed here for 6 months-from Nov 09-May 2010. It was a great experience. We paid $1,000/mo in Jan/Feb and $810/mo Mar-May. (The Bay side sites are more expensive). Not a lot of room between sites, but they do have beautiful shrubs and palms as buffers. The hot tub is great - 102 degrees. The pool at 80 degrees felt chilly, but was good once the air temp got into the 80s. The park, pool area, bathrooms and community/workout room are kept very clean. They have lots of fun activities for the Winter Texans - happy hours, Saturday breakfasts (cheap - $2/3!!) The employees are all very nice and friendly. They have added poured patios to most of the sites now. The white rock is actually great because it keeps the bugs/mosquitoes to a minimum. We have friends in the County Park next door and they complain about bugs, mosquitoes and burrs. It gets busy with kids during Texas week and Semana Santa, and the music from Schlitterbahn next door is really loud. Overall, it's a great place, but is quite expensive, however, you get what you pay for.

Great place to park if you want an inexpensive, safe place close to the sites. No frills, no bathrooms or any other amenities - just the basics. Be sure to call first since the entrance is different than what is listed on the website. Manager will give you the code to get in. If you don't like the smell of a farm or dirt surroundings, don't stay here. The RVs are backed up to the cattle pen-there were only a few steers and 2 horses, but they do smell when the wind is blowing towards the RV sites. Bring cash.

Very clean, nice park. Well lit at night when arriving after dark. Some palm trees, but not a lot of shade.

Note - their nightly rate ranges from $42-64 and we are paying by the month, so not sure how much it is per night right now. Anyways, we have been here for almost one month and are enjoying every minute! It is a very well-kept, safe, family oriented campground. The sites are roomy enough and are covered with white rock which gives a very clean look. It is walking/biking distance to the beach and county park and convenient to lots of restaurants and shopping. The employees are all very friendly. The sunset deck is perfect for dolphin watching and taking in gorgeous sunsets over Laguna Madre. The pool is kept @ 80 degrees and the hot tub nice and hot (@ 102 degrees). Included in the rate is floor and pool aerobics, (3 days a week), and a Tone and stretch class one day a week. They have monthly social gatherings too. We will definitely be back in the future.

We stayed one night just for a place to rest. Since it was Sunday, I couldn't make a reservation-just got a recorded message, but it had the phone number for the Park Ranger, so I called and left a message and he actually called back! He was very helpful and friendly and said we could show up whenever, and gave us the code to get in if it was after 10pm and gave us directions since he said the GPS would send us to another location about 6 miles away. His directions worked and we made it just fine. There are wooded sites and bay side. The wooded are $16 and the bay side $20 plus $3/per person for the state park day fee. We stayed at the bay side area and it was okay - nothing special but we do like being by the water. It's on a seawall rather than a slope to the water.

We stayed at this park based on previous reviews which had comments about their free shuttle into New Orleans. When we called to make the reservation, we asked them if the shuttle was running the next day and the staff told us 'yes'. We got there at 7:30 PM and again asked about the shuttle and was told I had to sign up so I did. The shuttle driver was there listening, and told us that it was full. The staff person argued with him and said there were still two spots left,(thankfully she was right). You would hope that they would be thoughtful enough to let me know when I made the reservation that I needed to sign up for the shuttle in advance (apparently, if it is full - too bad for you!). The shuttle leaves the park at 9 AM. We were there early, and watched a couple who showed up for it (but obviously wasn't told they had to sign up) get turned away. Fortunately for them, there were some no-shows. So make sure when you call for reservations that you sign up for the shuttle, and then make sure your name is on the list when you get there! The park is nothing special - very close quarters, but we were there to go into downtown so we didn't care. Although the staff was very friendly and we were given history on the area on the shuttle drive in, they didn't impress us with their customer service (or lack thereof).

Loved this park! Right on the ocean yet wooded. Some spots looked tight, but we were in a pull through. Great for families.

Very nice well-kept campground. Secluded and quiet with plenty of tree coverage, but not too much. We came in after hours and the office had detailed instructions on choosing a site. They have a great system where they list each open site on a chalkboard as well as a sheet of paper with info and a map with each available site and you take the one you want, which means the next late check-in knows it is no longer available. It is only about 1/2 mile from the beach and all the action. The laundry room is clean and convenient and worked well $1.00 ea for wash / dry. The only weird thing was that they advertised $28.50/nite on the sheet and she rang up $32 on my credit card without a breakdown for taxes. I asked her about it and she said the difference was tax. No AAA discount.
