We just got back from a great stay at Pismo Beach. It's been awhile since we were at the PCV and the place looks great. They are always making improvements to the campground, which is great since they charge a little more to stay there. My kids and I love the fact that everything is within walking distance from the park. The beach is beautiful and there's lots of great places to eat at in town when you don't feel like grilling anything.
This was our first time here and it was a lot nicer than I thought it would be. It appears that the campground is undergoing some major upgrades which is nice, but I thought they should have waited until the off season to do this. The employees are great and the sites are large. The restrooms and shower are well kept, but not spread out throughout the property. The clubhouse was closed due to remodeling but their private dock offered some great fishing for my more kids. The Delta is a nice area and if you are in the area, you have to stop by Spindrifts.
The park is nice and we have been coming here for years. However, the park has made some policy changes and if you are a ROD member, you are not going to like them. We had to camp in the "A" section, which used to be the employees' sites and all of them are 50 amps, which means you have to pay an additional 3 dollars a day. This is unfair for us ROD members, since the beauty of this park, are the sites by the river.
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.
This was our first to Harmony Ridge and it was a little difficult to find in the dark. However, once we got there, we were greeted by a friendly and helpful staff. There are a lot of great amenities at this resort and the kids had plenty to do. The city of Nevada City was having their annual Mardi Gras celebration, and it was a lot of fun for the family. Great music and great food. I would have rated the campground higher if they would make more routine checks on the restrooms. Once in the morning is not enough. The resort does not have a store but it does have a restaurant that's open on the weekends. We'll be back soon.
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.
This park is in a great location! Near Bass Lake and 45 miles south of Yosemite. Lots of great ammenties and activities for the kids. The staff is friendly and helpful. However, the sites are small and difficult to get into. The pull thur sites are stacked on top of each so you don't have much room to use you pop outs properly. Do NOT arrive on a Saturday! We made that mistake and we had to wait until Sunday to get a better site. If you come, there's a waterfall about a mile down the road. The rocks are slick so kids will have fun sliding down them.
Lots of activities for the family at this great little campground. We were fortunate to get a semi-shady site by the river, but the the nice spacious sites are away from the river. Friendly staff and nice fellow RVers during our stay. For a Thousand Trails' campground, I was very impress. I would have gave them a higher score if they would have more sites with sewers. However, the girls working the deli are all young and attractive.
It's been awhile since this park has been reviewed, and it is important for everyone to know. This park still has issues. Last week a group of R.O.D. members voted this membership park, The Worst Park in California. Small, dusty sites. No water access or shade.
Disappointing. Avila Beach is a beautiful area and we loved going there, but this campground was very small. The sites were stacked on top of each other! The campground looked more like a dealership lot than a RV park. The campground was not located near anything you would like to go to (beach, town, etc.). The pool area was nice and the staff was friendly. What's really SAD about this situation is the fact that this is a public/membership park.
We were fortunate to be invited back for another free weekend at this beautiful campground. We enjoyed our stay so much, we decided to join. The staff members are very friendly and the campground is in very good condition, considering that they were flooded last month. The membership price was a little high compare to other parks we visited in the past. However, the overall condition of the park is far better than most parks we have been in. Kayaking is free and they have a nice big Hot Tub. They also have two clubhouses: one for kids and one for adults.
For a membership park, this was very nice. The people are very friendly and the park is clean. However, the river sites are in direct sun and it was a little tough for our dog. The cost to join was $3500, which wasn't bad compared to other membership campgrounds, but up the road was a nicer campground that did not require membership. If you want a free weekend and you have a hour to kill, give them a call.
This campground caters to tent camping. My family used to camp here before we got out Trailer and it was nice. However, the sites for trailers are not very desirable and I wish I would have continued up HWY 1. Duncan Mills is a nice area but this is not a nice campground.
Duncans Mills C. C. is a membership campground that will let you stay the weekend if you are inteerseted in joining. Even if you don't join, they will still not charge you for staying. It is a very beautiful campground and it is part of the R.O.D. membership program. They don't have a pool but they do have a large hot tub and clubhouse. The campground is within walking distance of a little town, Duncans Mills, and it has a great coffee shop worth going to. The membership is $5000 to join and $1000 per year for dues. This would be a perfect set up if I was retired and had more time to camp. However, this might be something one of you might be interested in.
Fall is the best time to be in Coloma. We have been here a lot over the years and we love it. It is a little pricey but well worth it once you are settled in. Keep in mind, they charge 6-10 dollars for parties over 2 people.
This is a great park in a great location! My family have been coming here for years and we are heading there for spring break in 2006. The only problem I have with the park is the fact that there's no easy access to the beach.
I discovered this campground by surfing the web. I was aware they were a membership park but they told me that they take reservations from non-members all the time. When we arrived, they asked me if we were members, and when I told them no they directed us across the street to a vacant lot in front of their maintenance building. If I wanted to camp inside the park, I would have to join. I told the idiot at the gate that this was explained to me when I made my reservations and he did not seem too surprised.
After being mislead by another campground in the area, my family and I had to scramble to find another place to stay. The folks at Yosemite Pines were very accommodating and they helped salvage our vacation.
