This is a nice park with OK facilities and certainly good for an overnight stay. The Wi-Fi is Tengonet and while you can get a free coupon, getting the staff to part with enough for your devices isn't going to happen. In fact there is a big sign in the lobby says "Limit of 2 per rig. Do not ask for more!" Not really good customer service. So I would not say they have free internet. It is free, but far from unlimited. And the more you use, the slower it goes. Also the staff person we checked in with was very grumpy and abrupt. Not at all a pleasant experience. This park could be rated a lot higher if they made customer service a priority. There are other options not too far away and we may consider them just because of grumpy. After a long day's drive, we really don't need that kind of "welcome" if you can call it that.

Overall, this is a great place to stay! We really enjoyed our stay here. The sites are not huge, but plenty large enough. The park is located adjacent to the beach and within an easy walk to downtown Pismo. The park has many amenities (pool, clubhouse, store, etc.). The staff is friendly and actually cares about what goes on in the park. If you want to have a wild drunken loud and obnoxious party, you do not want to come here. The 24 hr security cares about guest satisfaction, which explains why most love this park and a few hate it. The WiFi works well and they have great cable TV including local channels in HD. We have been here often and will definitely come again.

This is a nice park with a great location run by caring and friendly people. Our rate varied as some nights were on Passport America. We were here for 4 nights. The sites are grass with great hookups. Watch the water pressure and make sure you use a regulator as the bib pressure is about 85psi. Once you set it, it is great! And appears not to be affected by the number of other sites occupied. The location is very near the city center and you can easily walk to Main street in town. You are central to many activities from here. The management is superb. While we were out one day, they called to tell us that a strong wind had come up and they noticed that our awning was out. That is great customer service! Internet here is Tengo and while it is free, it is not always 100%. Most of the time it was solid, but then seemed to become intermittent for a while. We heard they are thinking of changing to their own system and hopefully when they do, it will be better. We would definitely stay here again!

This is a small park run by friendly people. They were extremely accommodating as we tried to find a level site with 50amp. Most of the sites are not level, but a few blocks fixed that. All sites are grass and if you use small blocks, they can sink into the grass. The WiFi was not the greatest, but it worked most of the time. The water pressure was pathetic. With the park about 25% full, we were down to barely 30psi which didn't begin to cut it. As a result, we shortened our stay by a day and moved on. I wouldn't mind staying there again (we had the Passport America rate) as the cost was very reasonable, but only if they get the water pressure fixed.

We have stayed here before and our only gripe is the poor WiFi. You get a free hour which doesn't even begin to meet minimal needs. Also the signal is not all that consistent. I know, some folks try to download movies and the like and eat up bandwidth, but there are fixes for that (try packet shaping). Overall the park is very nice and well maintained. The speed limit of 8.5 mph tells you a lot about the management though. Yes, we will stay here again, but only for a night or two.

Overall this campground is OK. Not great, not bad. The sites and roads are all gravel which is OK except that in heavy rain, they get some rather large puddles. The hookups are fine and easy to work with and well located. The staff at registration is great. They sell propane for $2.55/gal which is a decent price. The WiFi is terrible. The signal is strong, but the response to any web request is terribly slow most of the time. Even in the mornings when you would expect usage to be low, it is very slow. I often switched to my phone's mifi to get a decent signal. The water pressure is quite low and that can make for some weak showers and other slow faucets. Also, as we were exiting, another rig was trying to turn in from a major state highway to come in the wrong way through the exit. He held up quite a bit of traffic until he realized that he was going the wrong way. Much better signage from the road is needed. Would we come back? Probably if we were going to activities in the local area. We got the Passport America half-price rate of $17/night which is a good rate. Sadly, given the poor water pressure and bad Wifi, it wasn't as good a deal as it should have been.

This is a great RV park. The sites are a bit close, but the location, facility, and staff are superb. My only concern was that on many of the sites, the campfire ring is too close to the adjacent site, and if someone were to create a large blaze (like with fire starter) they could damage the adjacent unit. Moving them 2 feet further away would solve it. (See 160-161) We are definitely coming back!

Overall this is a nice park. Two glaring problems keep it from a much better rating. First, the water pressure is low. It was marginally acceptable at best. Secondly, and more importantly, the internet was not acceptable. We saw previous reviews with that as a concern and mentioned the concern when we checked in. The staff person indicated that they had made a major upgrade to it within the last week. We did find that the signal was very strong. So if that is what was upgraded, it worked. However even with a strong signal, either the router or the connection from the park to the provider was poor. Many web requests were slow to respond - 5 or more seconds and in the evenings, about half of the requests timed out. The same web sites responded quickly when using mifi on our 4g Verizon phones. Hopefully, the park can fix this problem. We would really consider staying here again if we see reviews indicating that the internet issue has been resolved.

We stayed in an upgraded site, so had to pay extra. We needed the outside refrigerator because the Norcold in our rig died earlier in the trip. So we stored our food outside until we replaced the Norcold with a residential unit using Apache RV. (Across the street and up 1 block). The staff was really helpful in finding the only site in the park with the full size refrig outside. We love this park. It is very pricey, but you get what you pay for, and this park is it. We too wish we could afford a spot here. We visited 2 years ago and the internet was great then. Not so good now. They switched to Tengo internet service, and we had real problems getting and staying connected. The tech's answer was to take our computers outside under the antenna! NOT! Also, there was a planned water outage that they put signs up on the doors of the pools and clubhouse, but if you didn't happen to go to one of those, you didn't know it was going to happen. We got caught in that, and I let the staff know that this was not good notification. They had to turn it off again the next day and we got a phone call telling us. Much better! But I am surprised they could not have figured that out on their own.

This is a nice park with paved sites and reasonable space between sites. They have a nice pool and are adjacent to the casino for food and entertainment. The Wi-Fi signal is strong and reliable. Staff is OK too. We will definitely stay here again!

This park is marginally OK. It is away from the freeway by about 1/2 mile so it is relatively quiet. The sites are all gravel but the gravel is in good condition. Some sites are very close to each other while others have a bit of grass between them. There are a lot of trees, so if you want satellite, careful positioning of your dish is critical. The hookups are good and the water pressure is high, so bring a regulator. The Wi-Fi appears to work ok. When we arrived, we were the second RV in line and the office was closed with a sign saying that they were "working in the park." The owner of the first RV had called the office and they answered from wherever and said they would be back to the office in 10 minutes. After 20 minutes, a 15 year old came to process the registrations. We wasted time sitting in their driveway waiting for customer service. We understand that they need to work in the park but then why not post a list of names and reserved sites so that we could just go to our site? Other parks do this. When we suggested this to the clerk, it fell on deaf ears. Also the trees in this park are badly in need of trimming. As we drove to and into our site, several branches scraped either the roof or side. A 40 foot rig would have done even worse.

This is mostly a nice park, and the folks running it are very friendly. Sites are spacious, and though made of gravel, there is a lot of it, and it is in good condition. Good spacing between sites, too. On the down side, the water pressure was anemic!! The staff is aware of the problem but nothing is done about it. Interestingly enough, one neighbor had excessive pressure, and when he flushed the toilet, water jetted out into the room. Also the internet was very spotty and not reliable. We would probably stay here again but would try to get a site with better water pressure if there are any.

We stayed here for 7 nights including the 4th of July. Overall the park is alright. Most sites are fairly spacious and gravel. Hookups are in good condition and work well. Because of the gravel, there is some dust. Internet Wi-Fi worked OK, but did fade out at times. They did have a water problem and we were without park water for about 6 hours one night. When water came back on it was very cloudy. Also, they only have one trash dumpster and it was often overflowing. After seeing some of the parks in town, we would stay here again. They do rent ATVs and carts at this campground, which is a nice plus.

This is a small park behind Jack's Campers. You actually enter through Jack's and the park is up behind the lot. It is quiet and the roads are well covered in gravel. We stayed here 4 nights. The hookups are great. The Wi-Fi works well. The closer you are to the cabin at the entrance, the better the signal is. They do use some sites to "store" units after working on them. For some reason, they seem to take the closest spots to the Wi-Fi for that, which isn't smart. I mentioned that to the manager so you can see if it changes. For price and features, we would certainly stay here again.

We stayed here two nights and it was a great place to visit Devils Tower only about 30 miles away and there is a nice loop of highways that you can take. The park has gravel sites with excellent hookups. The Wi-Fi is marginal but usable. The people running the park are great.

Good park overall. WiFi was not solid. Finally gave up and used my phone because it was so slow. Sites OK, good hookups. We stayed one night while on the road and I would certainly stay again if coming this way.

We only stayed here overnight while traveling. The park is nice, clean, but near the interstate and you do get some noise from that. The roads and sites are gravel but are clean and in good condition. The internet works but is spotty sometimes and slow. This was a good overnight spot and we would stay here again

There is good news and bad news about this park. Sites and roads are all gravel and somewhat hard to walk on. Many trees which I am sure are great for shade in the heat of summer. However, there are many low hanging branches that will sit on your roof and, in a strong wind, could cause damage. Management needs to get them trimmed so that taller rigs aren't damaged. A few sites are good for satellite but not all. The pull throughs are in rows nose to tail and may be space limited. There are backins that are nice. All sites have 50 amp power. The park is right next to the interstate so it is noisy. But for an overnight stop it should be fine. The staff here is friendly though the guy helping you back in doesn't have a clue and his signals are not all that helpful. Be sure and double check your alignment.

This park has a very friendly staff. The WiFi was good and the hookups including 50amp, were fine. The sites are part lawn and part gravel and the gravel only fits under the rig so you end up entering and exiting your RV onto the grass. Unfortunately, when they mow the grass, they leave the clippings lie and your shoes track grass into the RV, the hoses and cables of your hookups likewise get a lot of grass on them. The roads are paved but extremely narrow. For a park built in the 90s, the roads are way too narrow. Overall, this park is OK for a one night stay, but nothing great.

This is a tale of two parks, one of them inexpensive and in usable, but old condition. The other a new area where they are trying to sell ownership lots, that is paved with wide concrete pads and a pool. Unfortunately the wireless does not work. We stayed here 5 days and never did get it to work on either of our two computers. We stayed in the newer area and the hookups and site were great. This park has great access to the national parks on the north side of town. We might stay here again, but not if the wireless does not work.

This is a nice facility, in fact it is the nicest for miles around. The owner is friendly and very easy to work with. There is a nice duck pond that has a walking path around it. The owner recently purchased the park and is keeping the price down by not offering discounts. ($25 for this park is a great price!) Sites are roomy and with good gravel in all. Hookups are excellent. There is no cable TV and the WiFi is not reliable nor fast. When it worked, it was marginal and most of the time it didn't. Also the owner had mules in an adjoining field and she keeps the males separated from the females so the result is them baying at each other through the night. While this is the best park for miles, with cable TV and decent WiFi, it would be super.

This is a great park overlooking Lake Powell. I wish it had cable TV and better water pressure (45lbs). The WiFi was intermittent, even though we were less that 75 feet from the antenna. The sites are all paved and many are pull throughs. Also, there are campfire rings. The hookups were well located and modern. The camp store is open 8-5 and I wish they stayed open a couple of hours later. Staff was friendly and easy to work with.

This is a very nice RV park. The sites are all concrete and well maintained. The hookups are well placed and easy to use. There is a pool, exercise room, and small store. The staff is friendly. Some sites may be a bit close together, but it really isn't a problem. I thought it would have too much freeway noise, but that really wasn't a problem. Great location to make day trips to Sedona, Prescott, and surrounding area.

This is the tale of two parks: one bad, one good. On the bad side, the roads are paved but worn out with major chuck holes in them. Likewise, our site had gravel at one time, but now there was hardly any gravel and there were ruts in the site. The sites are a bit too close to each other, especially if you have large slides on both sides. On the good side, the rates are good, the staff is superb. They don't actually charge you for the site until you know how many days you will be staying. We reserved 6 but had to leave after 3 because the park is at 7,000 feet and I couldn't breathe at night. No problem, they closed out our account after 3 days with no problem at all. The hookups are good, though the water pressure could be better. The park's free shuttle has a stop at the entrance and that worked well for us. The National Park folks could really improve directional signage in the park to make it easier to find the RV Park. Make sure you get directions when you come into the park.

This is a great place. Each site is concrete, wide enough for the motorhome with space to spare. You can only come here in a motorhome. The hookups are great and well situated. The park is clean, well maintained, and has amenities like 5 pools, golf putting course, tennis courts, workout room, laundry, etc. WiFi works great! Ditto for the 69 channel cable TV (plus another 20+ digital channels on the cable with HD.) Some of the sites have been sold to private parties, and it is really interesting to see how they developed them with outdoor entertaining spaces. The staff is very friendly and there is gated access with a guard 24/7. Very secure here. The residents are also very friendly. We will be coming back for sure.

This is a new park and I am surprised that they made the roads so narrow. It is very hard for the larger rigs to turn to enter and exit their sites. The sites are concrete, however the concrete is way too narrow, barely fitting our tires on side to side. Our front steps let you down onto lawn instead of concrete due to the narrowness of the site. The staff here is very friendly and helpful. When we arrived, there were about 10 low hanging tree branches that either hit our slides or prohibited our awning from being used. The staff quickly trimmed them upon my request. (A better thought would have been to alreay have them trimmed.) The Wifi in this park is very poor. We are located about 150 feet from an access point with direct line of sight. Yet the signal is very poor and shifts between 1 and 3 bars randomly. Sometimes the access just dies and nothing happens for some time. There are access points scattered around the park, but none are any stronger for me. There is no cell service here without a signal booster. Even then, it is poor. The park has cable tv connections, but no cable tv! You have to rely on over the air signals which are very poor. No major networks are available, only BYU tv which isn't much. Overall, for a new park, this is a major disappointment. We are not sure we would stay here again just because of the tight spaces and poor TV & WiFi.

This park has location and overall is clean and well kept. The Wi-Fi isn't the greatest as the throughput was very poor. I actually used my cell for a while to get connected. Tengo is their provider and they do have access points scattered around the park, but they weren't great. The site we had was gravel and the left side bordered a building with a hill. So access to my outside storage on that side was precarious at best. Overall, the park seemed a bit pricey, but you pay for the location.

Second time we have stayed here. They need better signage from the main road to the RV park. The Wi-Fi here is superb. 4 remote antennas guarantee a great signal anywhere in the park. Has nice spaces and friendly staff. Casino food is OK, not poor nor great. Golf course is superb!

This is a good park. We were looking for solid fast WiFi, good satellite reception, 50 amp power and decent space. This CG fit the bill nicely for only $25/night (30 amp is only $20). Sites and roads are gravel, but level. We only stayed one night as we are on our way elsewhere, but we would stay here again without question.

I would not recommend this park. The WiFi is limited in speed because some have abused it. So now you can't go over 1mb speed. Unfortunately, for much other than email, it is totally worthless. Browsing any complicated website is impossible unless you bring a pillow to rest on while you wait. The cable TV signal was unwatchable on the local NBC channel. The audio was broken and there were many dropouts in the video. Almost like it was a bad satellite signal. The 50 amp power worked fine. The water faucet had a steady leak around where the handle goes into the base. Sites are gravel and there are many trees. The cost was $40 plus tax, which is way overpriced for a park of this vintage, with the amenities being in such bad shape.

This is a great place. Others have already written about the views, friendly staff, etc., so I won't be redundant. Two things not previously mentioned: The clubhouse facility is superb. A nice relaxing area with a small workout room which we used. Also most of the sites have two sets of hookups so that you can take maximum advantage of the great view, regardless of the type of RV. Yes, it is pricey, but go ahead, treat yourself to a small bit of luxury!

The park is simple, clean, and well maintained. There is a laundry room, meeting room, and small store area. No real amenities like swimming pool, exercise or any of that. The golf course is the main reason for coming to this park. It is in superb condition and is well run with very friendly staff. If you call the pro shop in the early morning (or the night before), they will drop a cart off at your site first thing in the morning - a very nice service! The course is long and the holes are challenging for the average golfer. If you don't know the course or are a high handicapper, play from the gold tees until you know the course better. Driving range, sand bunker and 2 putting greens are available to fine tune your game. The front nine is easily walkable, but the back nine is hilly and I would not recommend walking it on a hot day or if you are not in great shape. The back nine is enough of a challenge without being tired when you go to take your shot. Their golf carts are electric and in great condition. Be sure to take in the views from holes #4, 10, 16, and 17. They do allow fivesomes which can really slow play. On one of my rounds we were behind a fivesome and then two twosomes. This really slowed things down. But that is about the only complaint I have with this course. We've been coming here on holiday weekends (usually Memorial Day) for 6 years now and it has been a great golf-RV destination for us.

The campground is a recent development. The spots are clean gravel and the street is paved. The electrical hookups are 20-30-50amp, though the 30amp has a non-standard socket, so I used a 50amp adapter. The lady who runs the park is not always available, but both she and husband are very friendly and willing to work with you on late stays, etc. The golf course is about what you would expect for $10/9 holes. There is one par 3, one par 5 and 7 par 4s. The fairways are fairly good, but the greens are a major disappointment. The size of the greens is about 25% of what you would expect. 7 of the holes have mats for the green which means your approach shots will not hold like they would on a normal green. The mats do not give a true roll. The apron around the green is very weedy and uneven. On the other two holes, the greens are cut fairway grass and the hole is about 7 inches or so in diameter! None of the holes give a true chance to work on approach pitches and chips. Many of the holes lack the distance markers alluded to on the scorecard. The real sad part is that I think this course could really be something. With real greens of a fairly normal size and some other small maintenance, this could be a real gem. Sadly, it isn't so. By all means visit the park, but if you are at all serious about golf, modify your expectations accordingly.

This is our favorite park in the area and we go there at least once every year or two and have been for the last 7 years. The trees were small back then but have grown. The concrete and pavement is in great condition, there are biking and walking paths and the park is right on the Columbia River. There are tennis and basketball courts within walking distance in the park.
