Much, much nicer than Fishing Bridge campground. Sites are well positioned, although tight for a 40 ft rig. Close to the river with lots of places to walk a dog. Even in the rain a pleasant place to stay. Very convenient to the west side of the park.
An awful campground. Uneven sites, very dusty, too close together. Not convenient for anything. We left after 1 day. Would not go back. Also, in case you get stuck there, a small store/diner near the entrance may have the worst service in Wyoming
Good location in Jackson, convenient to walk downtown or get on the bike paths (of which there are many.) Sites are crammed in and in the summer very dusty. Would stay again as it is convenient. The Virginian Lodge is a bit odd, lots of tour buses and a funky bar.
Stayed here 2x, once in mid August and on the 3rd. Lots are clean and flat. There is a small dog park and you can walk along the river for a few hundred yards. Store is basic, but personnel pleasant. Best part of staying here: 2 Charlie Trotter restaurants in the hotel. The Italian one is superb, the other OK - spotty service. There is also a driving range for golf enthusiasts. The casino is fine, strange to be there when the Burning Man people descend!
We stopped to check this campground out on our way north, stayed on our way south. Lovely location, only a couple of large flat sites for a big motorhome. The views were great. Visitor center personnel very nice and friendly. We played Disc golf, they have 2 courses, and easy one and a longer harder one. Great fun.
Am a bit late posting. We stayed here at the end of August, had a wonderful time. We even extended our stay an extra day. Fishing, with Phil, was great fun. We had our own kayaks so went out on the lake every day. The dogs also had a lovely time, not least owing to their fascination with golden mantle ground squirrels - who they watched for hours. We shopped at all the stores - surprisingly good grocery selection and fair prices. Will definitely go back.
Good location. Not the best maintained KOA. A very grumpy camp host. No recycling. Store almost empty. Easy to bike ride and good access for a kayak. Would return as it is convenient, but will look at other options too.
We stayed at Dutcher Creek over July 4th, a spontaneous booking 2 days before. We have a 40ft coach so they gave us the pull through opposite the pool looking out at the valley. Despite many permanent residents the park is very clean, quiet, and well kept. We really didn't see anyone except the camp host ( a very nice man) and some other overnighters. Wi-fi worked well. Pool was clean. Site was gravel and our dogs got a bit dirty - we will now buy a camping mat. We biked to Lake Sonoma, 6.1 miles to the hatchery and wine tasted on the way back. A great location in wine country for a couple of nights.
I love this park, even out of season when many of the loops are closed it is great. Some of the spaces are very tight for a large rig. Hiking on the dunes is spectacular, only wish there were less ATVs. The State of Cal could learn a lot from Oregon and their fabulous state parks.
We stayed here on a rainy weekend, we were the only ones parked at the Russian River. People were very nice and it was clean. River was beautiful. Not sure what this would be like on a packed sunny weekend, but we loved it alone with our dogs in a motorhome. Biked to Duncan Mills to the stores and had drinks at the Blue Heron.
We love this park. No electricity or hook ups for motorhomes, and you need a mat to keep the dirt out, but you can hike to the beach, go through the fence to get to the harbor, bike and generally relax. The state is so poor than they close 90% of it for the winter - proving yet again they are idiots. Camp hosts are nice and rangers OK.
In a large motorhome you have to park in the parking lot, for the same price as the actual spots. It was quiet and we hiked on the beach, undisturbed, with our dogs and again along the shore the next day. Not sure why the state won't let motorhomes park in the main parking lot at night. We live nearby so it was an ok stay for 1 night. We prefer Bodega Dunes but it was sold out.
