Stayed here while visiting relatives in the area. Nothing fancy but it's conveniently located and there are not many alternatives within 30 miles. Nice grassy spaces, all hookups worked, friendly host. We will return.
Park is mostly long term residents who go to work every day, with a few very tight spaces for over night guests in the middle row. We were advised that one bathroom was out of service and not to use the other close one since the locks did not work. Long term residents cut through open sites with no regard for adjacent guests, driving extremely fast, in spite of many children in the streets. Easy access to propane and diesel at the adjacent truck stop, though speaking Spanish would definitely make your purchase experience easier. We were here for a quick overnight stop, and for that purpose it's OK.
We stayed here for a few days on recommendations of a friend who visited before but not stayed. A family friendly park with many small children zipping around the streets with little or no parental supervision. Sites are tight but angled for easy access even for large rigs, but no pull-through sites, only back-in. Sites closer to the beach access are mostly occupied by shareholders who reserve months in advance, with casual visitors placed closer to the highway or in tighter spaces at the south end. A lot of traffic moving rental and shareholder units in and out of spaces every day. Clubhouse, pool, arcade, and patio appeared very popular with the aged crowd. If you want a family friendly resort with many things for the kids, and not an actual beach, this is the place in Pismo Beach. If you want good beach access and quiet, look elsewhere.
This small park a few miles south of Tucson is a unique experience. The owners are two of the nicest, most friendly and welcoming hosts we have encountered in our years of RVing. Quiet desert setting, great views of the surrounding mountains, and the loudest sound was the coyotes at night in the desert. The owner has spent years building everything in this park himself, from the iron fencing to the adobe walls to the "Tiki Bar/Patio with Waterfall". Free laundry rooms are provided with Tucson sunshine for drying. If you want a quiet place near Tucson and don't need swimming pools, exercise rooms (hiking in Tucson Mountain Park is only a couple of miles away), or bingo games, check out the Bar J. We will return every year!
Rate reflects current Good Sam rate for a "premium" site on the lower level. These sites are closest to the ocean and well shaded, although more tightly packed than the "less premium" sites further back on the same level. There was little road noise and lots of sea lion sounds. It appears that about half the park is full timers and rental park models, but all are well kept. The staff was very friendly and the restrooms were clean though in need of some upgrading and repairs (plywood covering skylight openings). Some sites have small wooden decks; ours had a ocean view half round table made from a slice of a large old redwood tree. Nature path/dog walking area is several loops of grass mowed through the blackberries, and the dogs thoroughly enjoyed all the smells. We would definitely stay again.
We had reservations at a campground in Grand Canyon National Park, but that campground does not have hookups. We spent one night, then an early April snowstorm drove us to find power when overnight temperatures dropped to the mid-teens. Since the campground with hookups within the NP was full, this campground was recommended by the ranger on duty. It's convenient to the south entrance of GCNP, and that is the ONLY reason to stay here. Muddy dirty sites which badly need more gravel and leveling. Staff was friendly.
Older park with a mix of mobile homes, long term residents and overnight spaces. Sites are crowded and short, with tight turns in many areas. Staff was friendly and helpful. OK for an overnight stop only.
Nice desert campground at the regional park adjacent to Calico Ghost Town. We were looking for an overnight stop, and this was in the right place, but we ended up staying two nights so we had a day to explore. Recent (and continuing) upgrades to the campground include new restroom buildings and a new entry for easier access. Sites in the full hookup area are tight, but those in the power only and no service areas are more open. Calico Ghost Town was good for a short visit, but was much more commercial than we expected with several tour bus with loads of foreign visitors swarming through the town. The location is good for access to other nearby desert areas, and the campground appears to be a place for individuals and groups who want to use their ATV's or Jeeps during the day but have a campground to return to at night.
If you enjoy exploring ruins this park is a must visit. Just outside of Winslow, close to I-40 with easy access, roomy, well spaced sites with a view of town in the distance. Site water is turned off during winter, but water is available at the dump station.
Excellent place for an overnight stop. Level gravel sites, paved roads, great dog walk area on the south side. Regular security patrols, and they will pick you up for a ride to the casino if you want to enjoy the buffet or play some games. We stay here at least once a year and will return.
Rate reflects 10 percent Good Sam discount. Nice grassy sites and park appears well cared for. We arrived when the office was closed and envelopes were provided for available sites, with honor system to pay in the morning when the office is open. Will return when in the area.
Basic level gravel lot with full hookups attached to the local fairgrounds. Six of 40 sites are pull through, the rest are back in. No restrooms or showers, but all the hookups functioned. Adjacent old RV park is very run down and gives the area a bad feel. The fairgrounds raised their rates this year from $25 to $35 a night, a bit high but they have no competition. We will definitely use this for an overnight stop again.
Older park in need of a lot of TLC. Much of the park is long term residents with many rigs in very poor condition. The staff and residents we spoke with were friendly. Close to freeway and truck stop, but noise wasn't an issue. Fine for a quick overnight stop at a reasonable price. We will return.
Beautiful green grass, pet friendly, with nice views of the mountains. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Since we have our own shower I saw no reason to pay extra for theirs, and with a full hookup site for $26.49 (with Good Sam Discount) I thought the price reasonable. When we return next year for a longer visit this park will be our place to stay.
Owner was outgoing and friendly...and it shows they are working hard to renovate this park. Tree cover was a bit iffy for satellite TV, but he told us to pick whichever site would work... and a pull through at the back worked fine. Electrical outlets are upside down for 30 amp cords... usable but needed a bungee to keep surge arrester connected. I would definitely stay here again.
Late arrival and there were no after hours check in slips in drop box, so we just picked a site. While this park is right next to the freeway noise wasn't an issue. Everything worked, office staff friendly when checking out in the morning. Good place for an overnight stop, and we would stay again.
It appears this park was designed by someone who has never used an RV before. The sites are long an narrow, and utility hookups are at the extreme end of the sites, requiring parking at the end or using long cords and hoses. Tables are on the "driver side" of sites, not convenient. Office staff was friendly and helpful. OK for an overnight stop.
Nicely laid out park with good site access. For travelers with dogs there are two fully fenced dog runs so your dogs can stretch their legs. We arrived after hours but check in was simple with per-numbered sheets for open sites. Will definitely stay again.
