Rate reflects Good Sam discount. We stayed here one night on our way home from CA. Park convenient to I-80. A cowboy in a goff cart led us to the site. Free coffee in the am. Propane available on site. Staff was friendly and helpful. We would stay here again.
Rate reflects Good Sam discount. We camped here overnight on our way to CA. Convenient to Meteor Crater. Clean albeit sparse campground, clean restrooms and showers. Campground is popular with scientists doing research at Meteor Crater.
Rate reflects 30 amp service. We spent one night here on our way home from CA. This is a good, no-frills campground. Campground and restrooms are clean. Although the registration process is self-service, the campground owner came by to greet us and make sure we were settled in. Only disadvantage is the road noise -- campground is very close to I-29. Would stay here again if in the area.

Rate reflects Good Sam discount. We spent one night here on our way home from CA. Place changed hands in November 2013 according to new owners, who were friendly and helpful. Park and restrooms were clean and well-maintained. We would stay here again if in the area.
Rate reflects Good Sam discount. We spent two nights here as we visited Crazy Horse and Mount Rushmore. This was one of the few campgrounds open in Custer in early April. Nice place, clean restrooms and laundry rooms, helpful staff. Will stay here again when we return to the area.
Yes, this is Big Sur, so you would expect to pay through the nose for a campground. However, for $70/night, you would still expect the showers to be free. More importantly, you would expect the campsites to be level, and for the campground owners to have a realistic sense of what size vehicles can fit into each site. We were lucky that other campsites were available when we arrived so that we could move into a different site after making multiple attempts to fit our 32' motorhome into a tiny unlevel site. The people who arrived at 11 pm with a large fifth wheel were apparently not so lucky -- it took them an hour, in the dark, to get their RV parked. Not sure I'd stay here again.
Rate includes Good Sam discount. We spent about a week here while we visited our daughter who is a grad student at UC-Davis. In 40 days of camping across country, Vineyard was one of the more expensive RV parks we visited, but considering the area, we did not feel ripped off. Park is clean and spacious, with nice landscaping, clean restrooms and showers, and good laundry facilities. After spending many days on the road in cold climates, Vineyard was a nice oasis. Our dog enjoyed the two dog parks. One nice amenity (free) was the air hose for adding air to the tires of our motorhome. We rented a car from Enterprise while in town and they picked us up at the park without hesitation. When we return to the area we will stay here again.
We spent a night here on our way to Davis. In 40 days of camping, this was by far one of my favorite campgrounds. Like many other campgrounds, it has clean restrooms and shower facilities. But beyond that, Shady Lane is a friendly and delightfully kitschy place. Among other things: 1) when I called to make a reservation, the woman who answered the phone gave me directions and told me she would come get us if we couldn't find the place; 2) the campground office is an old Airstream trailer; 3) there is free candy in the office; 4) when I asked whether there was an extra charge for our dog, the owners looked surprised and asked whether other campgrounds impose such a charge; and 5) the owners took us to our campsite and gave us a copy of the local TV guide as well as the campground rules. Yes, this is silly stuff, but it added to the down-home feeling of the place. My husband loved the fact that the full-timers in the park were desert characters. We will definitely stay here again when we are back in Barstow.
We camped here one night on our way to CA and we will not return. In 40 days of camping cross-country in March and April of this year, this was the worst campsite and the most expensive. For over $50 a night, we expected a level campsite, and we didn't get it.
