I would stay here again, the only reason that I did not give it a 10 was that the sewer hookups are on the opposite side and I had to run the hose under the trailer. Real quiet in the evenings and the view was real nice. Camp host was friendly in giving directions and advice to other campsites. Only 5 minutes from CalPoly and has a great golf course next to it. No reservations and fills up fast in the summer. I have a small trailer and it was tight. Anything over 20' you will have problems getting into several sites.
I stayed one night and then had to leave. The noise was horrible from Hwy 101. The dirt from the camp site got inside everywhere. The site was so close to the other trailers that it took over 1/2 hour to back in. The smell of sulphur was unbearable and had to keep the windows closed. The overall camp ground was run down, dirty,dusty. The sewer was opposite the trailer, so I had to run the hose under the trailer. Even the cabins looked run down. The staff was friendly. I ended up going to the county and stayed there where it was great and at least quiet and did not smell. I did not even try the pool for the sulphur smell was too over bearing. I will never go here again. I will go to Morro Bay before coming back.
Owners were great to work with. Fun area for kids to fish, rent boats etc. The only problem was that the restrooms/showers get a lot of sand from the beach area next to the office, and the restrooms become muddy from the use. There is a lot of clutter around the office from old broken down equipment, so they could clean it up some. Rates are reasonable for camping and the rentals.
Park service was great, Rangers kept it under control. Lots to do for the kids. The bathrooms were sandy, and were dirty due to the sand. The showers had a lot of sand in them, so we used the trailer to shower. Have to hunt down full hook-ups. Otherwise it was easy to get a electric and water only. If I had to do over, I would stay in the State Park across the 101 from this, where it was not crowded with ATV's. Even though they are not allowed in the park, you could hear them all around the park, which got old real quick, especially if you wanted to read outside.
Place is packed in like a sardines. I had the exhaust of both diesel rigs pointing at me. If anyone of them started up the exhaust would have hit my rig. No tables, barely any room to sit next to your rig or truck. Have to pay for showers. It was tight even to move a 17' travel trailer in these slots. The hook ups are far away from the rig, and I almost needed to get my 30 amp extension out. I will be staying in Grand Tetons in the future and go back and forth from there into Yellowstone.
Very new trailer park. Owners very friendly. All sites were pull through. Rest rooms and showers were the cleanest I have ever seen. It was very windy when we camp there, and the pilot went out several times. You are right next to I-80 and could hear the trucks and train through out the night. I left the AC fan on all night to baffle the noise. Good place to stay for 1-2 nights
Had a great time over Thanksgiving. Was one of the lucky ones to get electric and water. The bathrooms were very clean. Make sure you carry some quarters when using the showers, it requires $.25 per every 2 minutes. The fire rings needed to be cleaned out more frequently. Access to beach was very easy. Pines trees dumped a lot of Sap on top of trailer. Good reception with the TV antenna. Would go again in a heart beat.
Clean restrooms, cool air, very short walk to the beach. Rangers very friendly, and had programs for the children. Loved this place!!! The only drawback was our site was directly behind the district office, so we had a view of their shop. Other than that great experience.
Moved our site when we arrived to a full sun site. They charge for everything including the showers. It was clean, no access to the beaches from the campground. Friendly service. Would have to think about coming back again. They do give discount for Good Sam. No credit cards are taken. Only cash or check.
Great park to camp in. The rest rooms are clean and showers clean and lots of hot water. We found out that this campground was bought out by KOA, so we do not know if we will be able to get our usual group setting next year. I hope this new KOA will be as nice. It will become a KOA in January 2007. Either way, you can guarantee that the rates will go up!!!!
Off the beaten path going to San Francisco. Our group had 11 rigs here for 2 days and had fun. The Gazebo was nice, plus it was close to the Jelly Belly factory, golf, and the Anheuser Bausch beer factory. Place was clean. Will come back next year with our camping group.
Beautiful RV site in the Redwoods and a river. This is a tight RV area, so if you have a large RV it might be tight to move around. The owners were very nice. No dump stations and not a dump station too close by. They do have a truck that comes around on Mondays and you can pay to dump into their setup. Very quite and will be nice to camp in summer. It is 10 minutes from San Jose and it is also in the direction of Big Basin State Park. Camped one night in November 2005.
Had a great time at this KOA during Thanksgiving 2005. The owners cooked up the Turkey and mashed potatoes for the entire park. Very friendly service, and helpful. Even though this RV site was very pricey ($60/night), I think it was worth it. Would go again given the chance!! Lots to do for the kids. Clean restrooms and showers. The owners helped out all Rv'ers that came in late by taking them to the site and helping to set up.
Stayed with a group of other RV'ers. It was dusty, when others went by. Some sites have shade, most did not. One branch did fall, and almost crashed into a trailer. Nobody got hurt. Water pressure was pretty low, and the trailers who lived there, got the best sites and left the worst for anyone else. The meeting room (double wide) was in bad shape and surprised it was still standing. Lucky for us, we went fishing on the lake. This park did have a boat launch, but was dirt, instead of concrete.
We were turned away when we arrived, because we were not Western Horizon members but Passport and Sam's Club members. The management made us turn around and leave!! There was no negotiations or anything, rude people. Lucky for us there was a State Park 1 1/2 miles away off Hwy 50 (That was a nice park $10/night). Be careful and call ahead.
