This year we stayed over a month which greatly reduces the daily fee. All sites are on frequently mowed grass, and, when the campground gets full, can be very narrow utilizing side-by-side hook-ups. The campground host tries to leave a space empty between the sites when not so busy as is more usual. At Fair and Rockfest weeks, non-participant campers are in the electric/water sites only. There are sites along the grandstand that have shade trees. There is train, jet, and traffic noise during the day which decreases significantly or is not present after 11pm. The bathrooms are adequate only and can be messy during busy times; we use our own. Free W-ifi is available from near the office building. The campground host and office personnel have been personable and accommodating when we've camped there over the past 7 years for different lengths of time.
Wi-Fi, cable and utilities all worked well. Office personnel were cordial and efficient. Camp sites are wide, gravel, level. We would not stay there again however. Many of the sites are occupied by long term residents. Multiple vehicles and assorted 'stuff' cluttered many of these sites. Two sites were taken by those long shower trailers and 2 porta-johns were parked there, too. The front of our motorhome faced neglected single-wides. The RV area of the park is visually very unappealing. Besides the tolerable train and highway noise, there was the less tolerable long idling diesel pick-ups and rumbling motorcycles of the residents during nighttime and early morning.
NOTE: Campground is now privately owned and site price has doubled. Explanation (from the man who took our payment) for the increased price is "to clean it up". We did not see any proof of that except for piles of cleaned-up brush. The campground has 3 sections off the paved road. Sites on the left are shaded and facing the mountains. Sites on the right are shaded and lakeside. These sites, of varying lengths and widths, pull throughs and back ins, are separated by logs, have picnic tables and fire rings. Farther on are more lakeside dispersed sites, not obvious as to placement except by occasional picnic tables. Signs ask that parking be perpendicular to lake but some RVs were parked parallel. All sites are on dirt or grass and most are level. Numerous water faucets are available for tank filling but not hookup. A very roomy group site is available. We did not use or look into the restrooms. Diaz Lake seems to be very popular for water sports and fishing; the area is scenic. Because of the price increase, unless major improvements are made by the new owners, we will most likely choose the other county park or BLM camping options in the area next time.
