We love coming to the Stockton Delta KOA. We come here every year for our family reunion. This is a wonderful facility with a well stocked store and great activities for the kids. Many of the sites are well shaded. One of the draw backs to tree shaded sites is the grass doesn't grow very well and then there is some dust, but we'll take cool camping over hot camping any day of the week.

First off, it is important to note, that we had a wonderful time at Bear river in our 40 foot motorhome! They have a great little store, that is open until 9:00 PM, where you can get a large number of provisions that you might need. They have a restaurant and Bar as well. The windows from the restaurant and the bar, look out onto the lake, presenting a view that can’t be beat. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They do have Wi-Fi here, though it costs $4.95 for 24 hours. Everyone staying here seems to be real respectful and tries to keep the noise down. There is a lot of fishing here and a place to put your boat in the water if you’d like too. That being said, it is important to keep some things in mind when staying here. This is a vast ‘campground’ that is very rural and above 6,000 feet with well over 100 sites. As such, all of the amenities, (Power and water) are provided by the resort, not by some general utility. Because of this, there is only 15 amps at each site. Plenty to run the TV, VCR, blender and Microwave, but not enough to run the Air conditioner or washer/drier. Also, you are in a forest area, so setting up a septic system here isn’t practical, but there is dump station for when you are ready to depart. This is a mountainous area, so some of the sites aren’t terribly level. If you are coming here with a 5th wheel or travel trailer, you should be able to level your rig in almost any site with a little effort. However, if you are coming here in a Class A motorhome, leveling, as it was for us, may be impossible depending on the site you are assigned. If you are in a class ‘A’, you may want to see if there are other open sites available and scout those out for the most level one, before parking your rig. In our case we would have needed to raise the back end of our 40 foot motorhome 2 feet or more to get it level. But, we made do. Because of the altitude, the ground freezes in the winter time. This is very hard on pavement and as such the sites aren’t paved. The sites are dirt. The dirt is very fine, so if dirt freaks you out, this is not the place to come. However, if you are looking for a place that is a little rustic, to get away from it all, with all of the amenities, clean bathrooms, clean showers, laundry facilities and the like, this is a great place. If you love to watch the squirrels and the kids or grand kids run and play, this is the place to come. If you like to hear birds chirping and check out the night stars, this is a great place to visit!

We wanted to get away for a 5 day weekend to the coast and we picked this location. The only way we give a park a 10 is if we get things like a paper delivered to our sight every morning and the entire facility is paved with lush grassing lawn areas at each site, with a dog run at every turn, but that isn't realistic. This park has a nice store with RV stuff in it, a great little restaurant just at the entrance to the park, SOLID Wi-Fi signal, strong CATV signals to the rig and a nice quiet atmosphere. We probably would have given it a 9 if it had fenced dog runs. Some of us have dogs that won't do their business on a leash. If you go towards the community center, be sure to pick up after your dog! We will come here again when in this area.

We were here for Memorial Day weekend. We made the reservation 2 months ahead of time. We had a wonderful time here. They had a large number of activities to partake in this weekend. There were hot dogs, a band, sports competitions, just all sorts of stuff to do! We have been here twice before and love this resort. The only reason we didn't give them a 10 is because their WI-FI doesn't have enough IP addresses for all of the various wireless devices 200 rigs brings on a weekend like this. Other than that, we love this place! We will definitely come back again!

Yes, it is a drag not having sewer hookups here at this park, but I find that to be the case at many RV parks that reside on delta land. As long as you know that is going in, this is a great place to stay. The park is very clean and well maintained. Usually, we find a lot of corrosion on window and door frames on buildings, but I was surprised to not find much. It isn't near the ocean, but usually with a park of this age you see some. We really enjoyed the sunsets. Although you do have the occasional boat with blaring speakers, that is not something the park can control. The park can't control people picking up after their dogs, so we don't hold the park accountable for that either. There is no park store but it is such a short drive to local stores so that is not a problem. Also, Stockton gets a bad rap! Like many medium to large cities, Stockton has its bad parts. But you don't have to travel through or anywhere near any of them to get to this park! We will come back here again.

For fair grounds camping, this is pretty good. The pedestals are in good shape, the water pressure and volume is good and the sites are nice and wide. This camp ground is very dog friendly and clean. It is pretty much asphalt and packed dirt, but it is surrounded by seasonal trees so in the summer time, there would be plenty of shade. In the winter time, there is plenty of sun, so it is a great fit for us. The park is within walking distance of the golf course and even the town of Calistoga, though that is about 1/4 of a mile to town. If you are looking for a safe place to camp with solid utilities, this is the place. If you are looking for a fancy resort, you better keep looking. Though we would definitely come here again, we understand that some like more upscale accommodations.

We came to the Betabel RV resort for 4 days for our 12th wedding anniversary. We wanted a nice central location to explore the Monterey, Gilroy area, and we found it. This is a wonderful park that has everything you could need. It's nice and quiet, yet easy access to the highway. Lots of green belts which stay lush because dogs are not allowed on them, but also a couple of nice wide open areas where you can take your well trained dog and throw the ball for them. There is a pool, horse shoe pits, putting green and Boce ball courts. For those familiar with RVing in California, I'd equate it to 49er in Plymouth, and JGW or Durango RV resorts in the Redbluff/Redding areas. When we are back in this area, we will return to this RV park.

This was our base camp for 5 nights as we explored the Zion and Bryce Canyon areas. This is a great location in a beautiful area. They are fully set up with laundry facilities and a wonderful staff. Everyone works hard to keep the grounds and facilities clean and in good repair. These folks are very pet friendly. The sites are dirt sites with Grass strips so very enjoyable. The wifi works great. We would definitely come back here again.

We stopped here on our way to Glendale Utah. This was a great place to stop at because we were too tired to make it all the way to Glendale that night. The sites were nice a long and level. We didn't even need to level our rig when we got there. The owners just purchased the KOA recently. They are making great strides on the park. They are putting in a dog park that I'm thinking should be done before the end of July. The store is well stocked and the grounds and utilities well maintaned. Though it is close to paths for ATV's, the owners ensure that the ATV'ers keep the noise down. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at this park as our base camp while we explored the Reno, Carson City and Virginia City areas. This park is in a great location to do just that! Yes, the park is right under the flight path for the airport. We heard about 4 to 6 large jets cross over the park on any of the given 4 days we were here. They do stop flying after 11 PM and don't start up again until 6:00 AM. There are so few flights though, that it really is not a detractor in our minds. It is an all asphalt park, but the spots are plenty wide to slide out all the slides and still have plenty of room for chairs and such. There is plenty of room for the toad, but in some sites you may have to park it across the front or back of the Moho. Leaving the toad attached to the back of a 40 foot moho may not be an option. There is a great river area next to the park, but it moves fast! The park is about 30 percent 'permanents', but they all keep their sites very clean. All in all, we really enjoyed our stay at this park and will definitely stay here again.

We stayed here for two nights on a quick get away weekend. The staff here is wonderful and the convenience store is well stocked even for the spring time with the essentials. The bath rooms and showers are spotless. The laundry facilities and the Recreation hall are great. Some of the buildings are older, but they are completely up to date inside. We were able to walk to the nearby Starbucks for a coffee. The dog park is simple but just what the doggies ordered to blow off some energy. We will definitely be here again.

We stayed here at this KOA as we travel in our RV with our dogs that are all over 50 pounds. Most RV parks in the Las Vegas area have a 25 pound weight limit, if they allow dogs at all. The thing to keep in mind is you come to Vegas either for gambling or a conference and not much else. Even with that in mind, this park fit our needs just perfectly. Though is pretty much an asphalt park with rock flower beds, it is easy to understand why. It is very hard to keep grass green in the summer time at this place. And with the wear and tear of an RV park that caters to families, the rock flower beds is the only way to go. The laundry and bath rooms were dated but clean. The store was very well stocked. We will definitely come here again the next time we are in Vegas.

This was a great rustic RV park to stay at. And I mean rustic, in a good way. We came here for our 11th wedding anniversary and found this a wonderful central location for our exploring of the northern San Francisco peninsula. If you want a great place to relax that feels like you are camping, this is the place for you. If you are looking for a RV resort with concrete slabs, this is not the place for you. Happy camping!

We stayed here for a birthday celebration of a family member. It had rained a lot over the last few days. This is an older park with narrower sites. However, the sites are long, allowing for extra parking. Some of the sites don't drain very well, so they are pretty soggy during the rainy times. About a third of the park is filled with full timers who have stuff sprawled all over their small sites, so it is a little un-sightly in places. The park is clean of trash and such, so from that perspective the staff does a nice job. We would come here again, in the summer time when things are a little less soggy. In that case, we would probably give the park a 7 rating.

For a place to spend the night, this was a great location. We pulled in here when the winds through the 395/14 area were really kicking up. It was a very clean location with all the basics. However, there is no cable and no Wifi. If we were passing through again for the night, we would stay here, but we would not stay for a protracted amount of time. Cell service and 3G (ATT Wireless) worked very well here. Happy Camping!

We stayed here on our way home from Lancaster as we headed to the Sacramento area. This is the first park that we have ever rated a 10. Frankly, would have given this park a higher rating if it were not for two problems. One, the scale on RV park reviews doesn't go any higher and two, there was no picnic table at our site. The restaurant, made up for there not being any picnic table. The food at the restaurant surpasses anything I have ever had at any sort of RV park or truck stop before. I would rate the restaurant a 4 out of 5 stars. And the only reason for that is because that I know there are those in the world that won't give a 5 star rating unless the dress is formal. The steak and the chicken were both exquisite and for a great price too. We will definitely be back here again. Happy camping!

This is a wonderful destination with great facilities. The only drawback is the dirt sites get a little dusty when the winds kick up. Other than that, this place is an A+. Happy Camping!

We stayed here while checking out the Bridgeport area of California. This is a beautiful area of the eastern sierras. We would love to stay here again. We plan to return, hopefully next year. The Laundry facilities are wonderful! The convenience store is great!

We found this RV park somewhat charming. The drawbacks are that the sights are hard to find and the roads are lumpy. But the scenery more than makes up for the lumpy roads. Some of the buildings have undergone upgrades. The Wi-Fi worked great.

We made late plans to come to the Felton area for our 10th wedding anniversary. We tried to get into Catillion Gardens and another RV park on the same road with River Grove RV park. The other two parks were full and could not take us. We were however able to get into River Grove RV park. Frankly, on a holiday weekend, we were thrilled with our fortune. Though this park needs some more repairs, especially to the cable TV infrastructure, we really enjoyed our stay here. We checked out the other two parks and all three have the ability to make you feel like you are stacked like cord-wood. A large majority of the sites (in all three campgrounds) are one right on top of the other. The tree coverage was best in River Grove RV park. All have paved roads but dirt sites. We would definitely come back here again. Happy camping!

We stayed here with a Good Sam club. The group site (which holds about 16 rigs) is down behind the pool area. The Wi-Fi worked really well. The power was a little weak and even though we didn't have all 16 spots taken, we blew the breaker that feeds this section. Even without the breaker blown, the power is a little weak. So, you might want to visit here in the fall, winter or spring. The group area is also pretty dry and the only grass is weeds. And in the summer time, they are pretty hard to find, so there isn't much greenery. There are a number of trees. About half of the group sites are shaded. The pool was very clean. The roads were in good shape. The bathrooms and showers are very very clean. There are no sewer hookups in the group sites, so if you are part of a group, go prepared with empty tanks. Also there is no cable or TV reception down in this bowl. The individual sites are very clean and full hookups. There is no convenience store in the area. There is another section of the park where there are permanent residents. Some of their sites are very clean, others not so much. If I was staying in an individual site, I might rated a 8 or 9. Happy camping!

We spent easter weekend here hooking up with some other family members. As others have stated, the location of this park is perfect. It is close to the highway from a drive time perspective, but far enough away for the highway noise to not even be heard. The RV park is in a suburb area of Chico. The 'Convenience store' has very little in it. No other retail establishments within walking distance of the RV park. There are a couple of grocery stores within about a 5 minute drive of the RV park. The WIFI seems to work fine and the Cable TV has over 50 channels to pick from. There seems to be a two class system going on though in regards to the way the RV park treats those with dogs. There are two rules in regards to dogs. Dogs cannot be tied up outside the rig and dog pens are not allowed. Well, we did make the mistake of tying up our dogs (we don't carry dog pens on board) and we got scolded for being in violation. However, there were others with Dog pens that they did not say anything to. We don't mind so much being told we were in violation, but it was the way the lady handled it, especially since they don't seem to say anything to those with dog pens. There is a dog park near the elementary school at Esplenade and Eaton. It is a great place to take your pooches to run. The sites are very clean and well maintaned, however the pads and the law areas are pretty narrow. The pool area seemed to be well maintaned as well as the other buildings within the facility. We would stay here again, but more than likely if we return to the Chico area, we will try some place else first. Happy camping!

We stayed here so that my wife could attend a conference near the Arden Fair mall. This location was great because it was centrally located to things we needed while we were here. It was very quiet. It is a large asphalt slab with water, Electric and Sewer. We were about 50 yards from the Office and could only marginally maintain a Internet connection while we were outside. We could obtain no connection from inside the rig. There were a bunch of Wifi signals out there, but I think they were part of the video surveylance system 'cause none of them would authenticate. The park is as advertised for the most part, just really wish the wifi worked better. Maybe the high tension powerlines cause interference as well. I don't know. We would stay here again if we needed to be in this area. Happy camping!

We just returned from a Family reunion at this KOA. We found the facility to be perfect for our family get together. There staff was very, very helpful. It looked like the other ‘Random’ campers were placed closer to the gates of the back campground which meant that we were less likely to disturb the other campers in the park. We love the fact that the store is so well stocked and the wonderful restaurant that is right next door. This is our favorite KOA and we have been to many up and down the state of California. We had such a good time that we’ve already made reservations for next year at this same park. We only live an hour and a half away, so we will try to return here again soon.

This was a wonderful campground. We found that it had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. We had a site with water, power and sewer. It was very quiet and the sites are very nicely sized! Everyone is very friendly and there was excellent access to the beach and some great walking paths. The bathrooms were clean and well maintained. The only drag for us was the spotty Cell phone coverage, but you know, that can be a blessing too. :-) If you want a place to relax, this is the place. If you want to have a place where you can keep a constant eye on the kids, the KOA might be a better place. If you want them to go explore, this is the place to be. If you want a place free of dirt, you won't even find that at the KOA so you may need to go to some place in Astoria, but if you don't mind a little dirt (sandy in texture) this is the place for you. We will definitely be back here again, next time for longer than 3 days!

We stayed here while on vacation to the pacific north west. This area served us fairly well as far as a 'Central location' though it really isn't close to anything. The park is small with about 75 percent of the rvers being permanent residents. They keep their sights pretty clean for the most part. They are adding some more sites at the bottom of the park. The sights are all terraced. There isn't much room between the sights especially if you have opposing slides. They frown on you walking dogs through the park so that was a negative for us. The laundry was very nice, new and clean. The bathrooms were also clean. Because they are not all that dog friendly (they want you to take your dog outside the park to walk it) we probably will not stay here again. Next time, maybe we will go with our original plan of going to 'Gig harbor'. Oh yes, Office staff hours are very limited and there is no wifi.

We stayed here for 3 nights as part of a reunion. This turned out to be a wonderful location. In the past we have stayed at Tahoe Valley Campground where they do have full hookups. In fact we have driven through in the past just to check this place out. We had thought it might be too close to State Highway 50, but the trees kill so much of the noise you don't notice the road noise at all. Yes, the bathrooms could stand to be updated, but for the price you pay, they were very clean and functional. The electrical was solid and the water pressure was good. They only have electric and water hookups. There is a dump station with two ports in it, so traffic through the dump station moves at a pretty good clip. The sights are much larger than Tahoe valley, and much easier to get into.

We stopped by here on a lark on our way home from a two week road trip. We had originally planned to boondock, but thought this might be a nice stop before the last push home. We are delighted that we did. This is a first class resort from the second you drive through the gates. As some one else stated, they spared no expense in this park. All it took was a the walk from the rig to the office to decide we would want to come here again. The price is a little higher than we are use to paying , but the beauty of this facility goes a long way to make up for that. We were only here for the night, but we had a chance to check out everything. The meeting rooms, the store, the dog wash, the river access, laundry the whole shooting match. This resort is second to none as far as we are concerned. The laundry works great (at $3.00 a load, $1.75 wash, $1.25 dry) and even the jeans dried the first time around in the drier. There are two dog walk areas where you can let your pooch off leash to take care of business, then there is river access to let them go for a run if you like. If they get a little mucky, there is a first class self service Dog wash area ($5.00) that will let you clean up your pooch just like at a groomers. The pads are nice and level as well as long and wide. The staff is very friendly. We tried out the pool as well as the hot tub and just fell in love with this place. The bath rooms and showers are very nicely done and well maintained, though we always use the facilities in our rig for the most part. Though there aren't many street lights, there is adequate pedestal lighting so that you can safely walk around the park at night. Though we won't make this our only RV destination, as we like to stay at state parks on occasion, we will be here a number of times each year, despite the 170 mile trip one way. We look forward to our return.

It all kind of depends on what you are looking for when it comes to campground reviews. Our family likes a nature sort of setting as opposed to the concrete slabs of some RV resorts. That being said, we have enjoyed many of those too, but this Jelly stone park is a real gem! :-) We were here about 4 years ago and at that point there were over 20 single wide mobile homes in the RV spots and the place was a real dump. We swore we would never come back here. Some friends told us that Jellystone had bought the park and were working on cleaning it up. Well, they have done a wonderful job. The park is spotless. Though the sites are not as wide as some of the Concrete slab parks, this one has character (in a good way) that many parks do not. We had no problem getting our fiver (with two slides) in to its spot. Though things were a little tight on the sides, there was a spacious area to the rear of our rig with a Picnic table and fire ring that allowed us that secluded feeling that we can't find in most other parks that we go to. Yes, the sights are dirt, but we don't mind this. They have installed all of the latest features in this park. The WIFI is wonderful, very reliable and fast. The pool area has been completely redone the Pool looks great compared to the algea filled mess from 4 years ago. Yes, there is still work to be done, but what a face lift in just a year since the ownership changed. The price was a little steep for our liking, but I guess it was in line with some of the KOA's in the central California Region. We will camp here again.

This is the third time we have stayed at this park. The first time was in 2000, then again in 2003 and this year. There were about 20 campsites still available when we arrived here on Friday. Most of the sites are lined and well covered with trees. They are well trimmed so as to not get in the way of your rig, yet many provide full coverage of your rig from the sun. So, if you have satellite, you'll need to have a tripod to get the signal. Though they have a limited staff, it looks like they try hard to keep things clean. This is an older park. The restrooms are clean, but need a little TLC. The Laundry room looks fairly well maintaned. There is a large presence of 'Permanents' here. It looks like the permanent encrochment has continuned, but for the most part, it looks like management is trying to keep the park clean. We enjoy this spot 'cause it is an oasis in the valley. They work hard to water the grassy areas around here. The ball fields are exceptionally green for as arid an area as this is. The river is really low this year because of limited snow pack, so they may not have that water for a watering source much longer, though site water is from the city. We probably will come here again, but the hot summer months make this a pretty warm place, even in the shade.

First off let me say, we do not have Quad runners, dirt bikes or BMX bikes. We are both in our mid forties and the extent of our adventuring usually involves walking the dogs. That being said, we really did enjoy the walker river resort. And yes, we will come back here again. There are a couple of reasons I gave this place an 8. One, no Wi-Fi, but not everyone needs that. The other is the fact of the sand. We managed to keep the sand out of our rig for the most part, but we did track some in. The sand is courser than beach sand, so it doesn't get everywhere like beach sand does. For those that enjoy the high desert, and like to use Quads, dirt bikes and such, this place is pretty near perfect. For those who enjoy just casual camping this is a great place until probably Memorial day. Then I would imagine, it would get a little busy and dusty. The management team is very pleasant, and does a very good job of letting Off roaders know what the rules are. I will admit the 9 hole golf course is a little corny, but fun none the less! The buildings, have been there for a while, but all are very well kept. Though we always use the facilities on board our rig, we would have no concerns what so ever using the bathrooms or showers. The Convenience store is one of the better stocked ones we have seen. There are acres and acres of places to let your pooches run. The pool area appears to be seasonal as it was closed this weekend, but the beautiful vista's make this place a must see in our book. However, if a little dust and sand bothers you, you may want to avoid this campground as all of the campsites area surrounded by packed sand. Undoubtedly though, we will make this a place we will visit again. Happy Camping!

This park opened in February of 2008. It is close to the Jackson Rancheria Casino, Hotel and Conference center. It is about 4 miles off the highway, quiet with very easy access. Nice wide pads with all brand new amenities. It has a pool and two hot tubs. It even has a lift to help those that are handicapped get in and out of the pool. All of the sights have grass behind them so even though about a 1/3 of the sites back up to one another, they are adjacent to one another so that if you have a rear window, you have a view. This is a beautiful area. It is on the top of a hill within a valley so there is a very nice view all around. Good news is, there are not many lights, so you sleep well at night. The bad news is, there are not many lights so it is a little dark here at night for a late night stroll. We highly suggest coming to visit this RV park. If you like to gamble (which we do not) you will really enjoy that too.

This campground is right next to part of the Castle Air Museum. Both are on part of the old retired Castle Air Force base. We found our selves really enjoying this location. I rated it a 5 because I know most may find it a bit privative. The existing sites have 30 amp service with water and sewer hookups. They are currently in the process of installing 50 amp service. There are 18 total sites. Six of them are water, sewer and electrical. Twelve of them are for dry camping. There is a large area behind the camp sites to allow you to let your favorite furry friends go for a run. For those looking for a resort, look elsewhere as there are now showers or bathrooms here. If you are looking for an in-expensive place to park with water, power and sewer and a place for the pooches to run, this is the spot. It is very quiet here. Occasionally, you will here the horn from the distant train, but the key word here is 'Distant'.

We camped at this campground as part of our daughter's 18th birthday. Her big goal on her birthday was to go to Disneyland a couple of days and to go to Medieval Times for dinner one night. Though our first impression was that this campground was a little out of the way for our Anaheim and Buena Park adventures, it's proximity to the Highway was a bonus. Some RV sites are within a stones throw of the highway, but if you ask for a site nearer the river, you won't be able to hear the cars passing by. Even when we took our dogs for walks in the areas near the highway, you had to really try to hear the traffic noise. The 20 minute drive (both weekday and weekend day) was a breeze to Disneyland and the drive to Medieval Times was about the same. This is a beautiful older campground (I remember it being there 40 years ago) with lots of shade trees well kept facilities. The campsites were nice and big. There are only two reasons I took some points off of what I might have called a 10 rating for this park. Well, Ok a 9 ('cause nothing is perfect). The WiFi was down and the staff didn't seem to have a clue as to when it might be up and running again. The second reason was the lady at the office (in her 50's or so I would guess) was on the gruff side. She never really liked to make eye contact and didn't really strike up conversation any of the 4 times we visited the office. Despite that, this was a great park to stay at and I think we may have found our central location for future RV trips to the Orange County/LA Basin in the future.

This was the third time we have camped at this campground. The access to South Lake Tahoe is great. The pedestals work well. There is a nice area of ranch land behind the park to take a walk or run your pooch. The draw backs are they don't hop on repairs that need to take place. For instance, the handicapped bath room in the Ladies room was out of service and no one was going to work on the toilet until after labor day weekend. This is the second visit where we had requested a specific campsite, knowing there would be plenty of room. We would find out when we arrived that the site we were told to park at is over 300 yards from the one we requested and too small to fit into. Then at the last moment having to have the campground move someone else who hadn't arrived yet so there was room for us. Why don't they just give us the site we asked for in the first place. No one was able to give us an answer except "We're sorry".

This is an older campground where the sites and roads are very close together. There are a few super-sized sites, but the majority don't have much more than about 10 feet between the pads. The afternoon staff at check-in was a little on the surly side, but the morning staff was more helpful. These sites are set up in such a way that you can pull your rig through and face another rig if you so desire. There is only one set of bathrooms for this campground and they are attached to the office. Which, is not a problem unless you are in a tent site which is at the other end of the camp ground. This makes for a bit of a mid-night hike. The pedestals are older and your plug can pull out pretty easily from some of the recepticals. The pool area is very clean and well maintained. The Landscaping also looks pretty good. We would stay here again if need be. There were no cable tv hook ups.

This is a park that appears to have been here for a while. None the less, it is very well maintained. There is some wear and tear on the lawn strips of the campsites that is consistent with the use by campers. You can see that they are making an effort to upgrade the campsites as time and money permit. This is a nice big facility to roam around in. We were traveling with another family and though the campground is not set up with opposing campsites, you can turn things around and make it work. They have 'Dog Runs', but they are not much bigger than a dog kennel at your local doggie bed and breakfast. The pool area is very well maintained and there is a arcade room and a Play ground for the kids to entertain themselves. The staff was very friendly and helpful getting us in on very short notice. There was a major fire at Lake Cachuma that caused us to make a last minute change in our plans.

This was a very clean newer park. The office staff was very friendly and helpful. All of the buildings, pool, grounds etc are clean and new, probably no more than a year or so old. There are dog areas to walk your four legged friends, but they are not very big so there is no place for medium size dogs to get up a good run. When they are more to capacity, such as during the Mid-state fair, they will do their best to get you into a site, but we were too big for our site so it was hard to get everything parked. Since we were traveling with another family, we liked the fact that we could face our units to one-another. It was pretty pricy for our tastes. Because of the price, we probably would not stay there again.

Very nice park. A little bit of Highway noise but not too bad. They don't allow fire pits, so don't bother packing any fire wood. They will let you bar-b-que with briquets however. All in all a very nice campground.

Some of the sights are a little close to the highway and as a result you get some highway noise. But if you make reservations a month in advance like we did, you'll get in a sight far enough away that you can't really hear it. Very clean and newer campground. We will definitely stay here again.

We love this camp ground, for a number of reasons. They have done a lot over the last year to spruce things up around the camp ground. They have remodeled the bathrooms and other facilities as well. The camp ground has WIFI through link-spot. However, I we found the Linkspot to be very flaky. Before you sign up for a week or month, sign up for a day only and try it at different times during the day. See if you are near a node that responds well. Other wise, you'll love this camp ground too. Though it is a bit pricey, it is quiet and yet has easy access and is close to a grocery store.

If you are looking for a place to get away from it all and enjoy the scenery, this is the place to come. Though the hook ups are simple and the store isn't much to write home about, this is a very peaceful place to come. The sites are nice and wide with lots of grass. There are only 12 sites with full hook ups, but at least 50 if you don't mind boon docking to some degree. What this location lacks in services it more than makes up for in looks. We highly recommend this.

This was a wonderful campground. It was added to the KOA family in August of 2005. It has a great store and resturaunt as well as boat rentals. Nice grassy camp sites. This is an older facility but they are very busy updating the facility. The bathrooms, showers and Laundry facilities were just recently remodeled from head to toe.
