This membership campground was recently purchased a year or so ago by Colorado River Adventures with major renovations completed and continuing. Nice quiet campground in tall pine trees with a friendly helpful staff. Spotless restroom facilities and activities building. Great facilities with a fine pool area. Plenty of beautiful topography to challenge the beginner RV handler while maneuvering. The stated rate is promotional. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Rvers should expect back in only sites. The turn radius for our 40' 5th wheel on unlevel ground crushed the hitch cover into the side of the truck damaging both. We left and found a big rig friendly park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park was recently acquired by Colorado River Adventures membership club and the rate reflects that. The last two miles of road prior to the entrance are indeed tight but have obviously been trimmed since the earlier reviews. Go slow, it is do-able. The interior roads are very tight and the pavement occasionally drops off to ruts along the edges. If you have a toad, disconnect inside the entrance, as some of the turns further in are very tight. Virtually none of the sites are level. They range from a gentle slope to "I wouldn't put a tent there!" The pool and its yard are lovely. The staff is very friendly and the new owners are trying very hard to upgrade the place, for example new picnic tables at the sites. Once parked the experience was nice. My score is mainly for the interior park roads. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It's been a few years since we have stayed at this park and we were a little disappointed on how much the park has changed, and not for the better. The staff is very friendly and the pool area is well kept but the rest of the park was in need of a major overhaul. We stayed over the Fourth of July weekend and the kids loved it but I wish the management would remodel the restrooms and showers. Because the staff was so friendly, we will probably come back in the fall so we can enjoy the Apple Hill area, but our plans are not set in stone. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is not suitable for big rigs, but we didn't check the RV Park Review on it beforehand. The last mile of road is too narrow, just barely room for a motorhome and maybe a small car to squeeze by. And no way to turn around until you arrive at the park entrance. Fortunately for us in our 40' big rig, they have a large parking lot and allowed us to dry camp there one night since it was off-season. Great area for rigs 30' or less if you like forests on a hillside. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We are in a 40' motor home with an internet satellite rooftop system. The 3 mile access road is essentially a narrow, tree-lined one-way road with many potholes. The park is poorly laid out with all sites in trees, thus not usable by us. We ended up dry-camping one night in their ghost town parking lot. People camping here that we talked to said power is low voltage and irregular. Water pressure low. There is a dump station which is difficult for a big rig to access. Sorry but this is not a big-rig friendly place and we will not return!! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Resort park in the pines. Sites are short, tight and hard to get into. The have one way roads going the wrong direction to get into most spots at the right angle. Honey wagon comes only once a week. We had to pay a $4 a day energy fee and we were still in the yellow most of the time and red if we had the refrigerator and water heater on( on our line tester ). Very poor electricity. Very kid- and family-friendly. They had movies all day and entertainment in the evening. Pot lucks and special family dinners. Horseback riding and a ghost town were a plus. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was an excellent place to be in the Fall. This campground is huge! Lots of stuff for the kids to do (swimming, horseback riding, ghost town, movies, etc) and the park is only 5 miles from the Apple Hill area. The facilities were clean but in need of some extra care. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This campground is located on Union Valley Reservoir in El Dorado National Forest. We stay in site 19 or 22 (which are first come/no reservation). We can get satellite without the portable dish in site 19. We have AT&T and cell service is great. Most sites have a view of the lake, and some are actually on the lake. There is 2 miles of dirt road (logging road) to the campground, but the campground is paved, as are the sites. You can safely leave your boat on the beach overnight. Vault toilets. Bear boxes, and there are bears in the late summer. Launch is at Sunset Campground. This is a beautiful lake for fishing or water sports. Lake level is very low after July. But it is still a great campground. Sites 16, 18, 21, 24, 25 and 26 are not good for RVs. We have a senior pass, which saves us half of the nightly fee of $22. We camped here in a Motorhome.
