The Good: It is in a great location. There is a $4/day shuttle to Disneyland. It is nearby Angels Stadium. It is very clean and has a nice pool/hot tub. It is clean and well maintained. The staff was very helpful in suggesting activities/directions/restaurants. The Bad: the wireless was terrible. We kept getting kicked off and when we contacted the office we were always told "Someone must be streaming. We tell them not to, but they do it." well...if you always lose bandwidth due to streaming, you need a stronger router/booster for the park. We would stay here again.
We stayed here mid-week. The park is beautiful. The golf course is convenient and beautiful, as well. Our site was level and the hosts had manicured the spaces well. Very friendly hosts: and I'm not saying this just because they are my sister and brother-in-law. :-) The Park is easily accessible from I-35. We have a 40 foot motorhome and our site was back-in, however, access was easy. This is a very nice greenbelt walking path around the lake and along the river. We would stay here again.
We stayed here in the middle of the week. Very friendly staff. Our site was slightly downhill to the front of our motorhome. The staff allowed us to turn around and pull through the opposite way. The utilities were actually on the opposite side, so the switch worked well. There were plenty of shade trees. The only suggestion would be for the owners to set more trash recepticles around the park. They only have three or four big dumpsters and those are located along the "lower" lake road: probably so the trash truck doesn't need to drive up hill and down throughout the park. We would stay here again.
We stayed here over Father's Day weekend. Wonderful experience. Gene guided us to our pull-through site. He even trimmed a tree branch because it was too close to our front door. He said it wasn't an issue for him to cut the branch because if it was too close to our door, it would be too close to others. The sites were newly completed. At 7:30pm on Friday's Gene plays guitar around the campfire. Great time. 60's and 70's songs. The office staff was very friendly. They gave us great suggestions of fishing. We caught several fish at Clear Creek Reservoir. We highly recommend this campground.
We camped here as a result of our other choices for campgrounds being full. The checkin was excellent. We were towing a 25 foot car trailer and they allowed us to unhook and stow the trailer in a lower parking area. Everything was fine. We were guided into our pull through space. Nice cement slab w/ picnic table. Fire ring (yes, its an old tire rim). it provided for a couple excellent fires during our stay. Now for the unpleasant part. My sister-in-law, from Denver, came to stay with us a couple nights. We had told the managers she was coming and they were "OK" with her checking in later. She arrived, paid her additional fee and told the management that she needed directions to site 52. She was told that wasn't right because the seasonal worker's trailer was in #52. My sister didn't know what to say. She reiterated that we were in #52. The host became rude and told her that he would not escort her to #52 because that was his site. Another worker asked his wife (the check-in lady), what site they were in. She said #51. He just said "Oh." No apology, no admission of being wrong, just "Oh." Another employee escorted my sister to SITE #52. Host's attitude and actions were not acceptible to us. I've also read other reviews of Mary's Lake Campground, where one of the workers is referred to as "the grumpy man." The owners need to counsel him to lighten up, or he should find other employment.
We stayed here for five days in early April. The park was only 1/3 full. We had a nice space. The office staff was very pleasant. The vegetable and shrimp vendor came by each evening. San Carlos is a bit commercial, but we enjoyed trying different restaurants. The RV park is about a quarter mile from a beach. The beach is clean. We had a good view of the marina. Directions are fair...good signage until you come to the turn-off, then there is no sign. We and others missed the turn and had to backtrack.
We stayed at this park for 10 days in early April. We had a beachfront site. Water pressure was pitiful, but not a problem. We, and others, filled our tanks and used our waterpumps. The remaining winter residents were polite, friendly and pleasant. The wifi was excellent. The staff was friendly. Old Kino was quaint. We truly enjoyed our stay.
