Everything within Yosemite Park was booked so we decided to stay here. The swimming pool, which was well maintained, sealed the deal, as we have teenagers & it was close to 100 degrees. Great park for families, with many activities, petting zoo, gold panning, hayrides, hamburgers on grill, etc. Small store and deli onsite were handy. Campground is in a gully so no cell service. Had to use pay phone at office. Wi-Fi was good by the pool/store, but not reliable at campsite. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Restrooms and showers in excellent condition. There is daily bus service (YARTS- $15 RT) to Yosemite valley for those who don't want to drive 45 minutes each way.
In San Juan Bautista near mission/SHP. Just off highway but very quiet. Well kept park with shady sites. Interesting historic buildings on property. They don't seem to advertise much; not crowded. Staff was friendly and helpful. Excellent restrooms. My kids relocated near recreation building to use the Wi-Fi. The signal was weak at the campsite. Don't understand previous reviewers concern about long term residents. There were some but immaculately kept spots. I could see why someone would want to stay for a month or two. We used the location as jumping off point to visit attractions in the San Jose/Santa Cruz area. Would definitely return.
Pleasant campground by Green River in Dinosaur National Monument several miles from Temporary Visitor Center. Several sites near entrance occupied by larger rigs had water hookups. Flush toilets, no showers. Not all sites are shaded. We arrived late in day, secured a roadside pull-through in the sun. Friendly NPS staff stationed in campground, with ranger talks offered in evening.
A mixed bag here. Beautiful riverside location near end of free Steamboat Springs bus shuttle line. Tent area across private Yampa River bridge has breathtaking views. Arrived in middle of busy summer season without a reservation. Clerk said they keep several sites in reserve, and amazingly, we were given a beautiful riverfront site (with lawn chair). My daughter enjoyed the sparkling swimming pool. Barn swallows nesting in rafters near laundry area were a treat to see. If it rains some areas are muddy. Twenty-something clerk not able to advise us where to locally buy trailer supplies or auto parts (we located them, but this upscale town seems RV hostile). Onsite management was minimal. Lack of shower/restroom maintenance was unacceptable. Poor ventilation in humid ladies restroom, $10 portable fan on floor completely inadequate with dangerous puddles of water on floor. Came back five hours later there were still large puddles in restroom, so I found the mop and cleaned them up myself. Mystery solved when I discovered brochure in office advertising campground for sale. Stay here while you can, next year it may be gone!
Perfectly serviceable campground just off I-80. Limited amenities, but fine for overnight stop while on the road. Far enough away from interstate that the noise wasn't an issue. No sign of problems noted by earlier reviewer. Restrooms were clean. My kids enjoyed catching the toads hopping about at night.
