At this point, this facility is dry camping only--there are not even water faucets in the campground. There are some clean portal-potty's available. Other than that, the campground staff is friendly and helpful, the sites are well maintained and level, and have new picnic tables and fire rings. Most sites are lakefront. A big launch ramp is available for boats. Hook-ups are planned for the future.

Very mixed feelings about this place. On the good side, hookups all worked perfectly, and the Wi-Fi was excellent. But, the dirt and gravel sites are very narrow, the park is not attractive looking, and there was a loud party at the fairgrounds one night.

A meticulously maintained park amongst the tall trees. It is a short drive to Santa Cruz for beach and boardwalk. There is access to a couple of short state park trails from the campground. The Wifi and cable work well. It's on the pricey side, but they do offer a three nights for price of two special.

Good park with plenty of trees near Leesville. Office personnel very accommodating and helpful. There are permanent residents in this park but they are friendly and respectful. One negative was train noise.

The park is acceptable in that everything works and sites are level. However, it does not look very attractive and the permanent residents tend to be noisy and cause some issues.

Good location, well maintained, but sites are very tight and rules enforced somewhat arbitrarily. Rates are very high considering how tight the sites are.

This is a beautiful campground with many trees, some waterfront sites, and views of the giant granite cliffs that are Yosemite. There is much wildlife (including a bear in the campground both nights we were there). Free shuttle to other points in Yosemite is available at the campground entrance. From an RV point of view, you need to be aware that: there are no hook-ups, no dump station (though there is one in Yosemite at another campground) and the roads through this park are extremely tight. We had to maneuver through two trees that were barely far enough apart for the motorhome to fit.

Beautifully landscaped park on the Sacramento River. Close to I-5, and you will hear the highway throughout the park. Mostly pull-throughs and all sites have concrete pads. Many cable channels, all very clear. Small, but immaculate pool. Biggest negative for me was that they close the laundry room at 6, last load needs to be started by 4:30. Its 100 degrees here in summer, so why not be able to quietly do your laundry in the evening?

This property used to be known as Wyntoon. Heavily wooded area, satellite will not work, but nice sites amongst the trees. Hookups look old, but they work. Some sites very level, others not. Good things for kids to do, basketball, bikes, pool. Office staff very friendly and helpful, nice store and a grill if you don't want to cook. Boat slips are available, but the lake is a long walk from the sites. Also, keep in mind the drive here from Redding is windy and hilly. Free Wifi works well.

Nice stop while passing through Northern California. Sites are a little too close together, but there is well kept grass between them and the gravel you park on is level. Also, buckets of flowers throughout the park. Many large trees, all are trimmed so that they don't hit RV roofs, but satellite may not work. Cable TV is 12 channels, picture clarity just so-so. Small but immaculate pool. Large dog run, but dogs must be kept on leash in it. Best showers I've ever seen in an RV park! A half a block away is Green Barn Restaurant, stop in for a great meal and ask for Melissa to get great service!

This membership resort now offers free, good quality wifi and has an exercise room. Small but clean pool, nice little store and on-site meals on weekends. Some sites level, "parking-lot" style", others off in the woods. Bass Lake walking distance. I would rate higher but saw issues this visit with site policies. Officially its always first come, first served, but saw issues with confusion in the office and less than polite service from the staff.

The attraction here is Don Pedro Lake. If you are not a boater or fisherman, there is not much reason to go here. Roads and sites are paved with fresh blacktop. Many sites are cramped; some require a steep back-in. Hook-ups worked well. Store is well stocked and staff is friendly. Bathrooms were not serviced during the weekend. Their website is a plus, there are photos and a description of every site.

Now have Free Wi-Fi available. Our site was a pull-through, and when I parked by the hook-ups, I was level. Office well staffed and friendly. Park is well patrolled. Nice store where you check in. We had our kids in a tent next to us, they got a little loud at 11PM and the security asked us (very nicely) to have them be quiet--that was the right thing to do! Bathroom could have been cleaner, yes its currently a holiday weekend--but the rates they charge are sufficient to keep the bathrooms clean.

Yes, its tough for a large vehicle to maneuver in, but its an absolutely beautiful setting amongst big redwoods. Very friendly staff, quiet hours enforced. River access, basketball and playground in the campground. State parks for great hikes are nearby.

Full hookups right next to the beach. That about says it all! Couple useful points, the sites are a fairly narrow, paved, level parking spot with a picnic table and fire pit on sand next to it. The sand is kept in with a curb, so you need to be careful backing in so you don't scuff your tires/rims. Several mile long walking path runs right behind the RV's. Camphosts are friendly and have a table of reading material you can borrow.

Be careful if you arrive here at night. There is almost no lighting, and no signs saying where the RV area is. Sights are roomy, all hookups work perfectly. Showers and restrooms were clean, but need renovations. Nice little store with very friendly staff. Bike trail is one-half mile away, but uphill on Highway 89. Short walk to the lake, they have a small marina and a nice little beach area.

Still not a destination park, but the improvements are very nice. Concrete pads (but you will still need to level) and full hook-ups are now available. Not all sites have a picnic table. Camp hosts are very friendly and helpful. They do not take reservations, and the gate to the park locks in the evening.

Agree with the previous review. Wifi is now available for $10 per day, and it only works near the store.

Acceptable park on the way to Yosemite. Check in staff not very friendly. Large attractive store. Electric, water, cable and WiFi all worked well (WiFi is free for the first hour, then $6 per day after that). Beautiful location amongst the trees, but the sites are so close together that it feels more like a parking lot than a forested campground. Pool is kept clean. Noisy septic system runs 24/7. Of note, there is a city bus to Yosemite Park for $12.

Site had some litter on arrival, otherwise great. Friendly staff at check in, beautiful lake front site. Quiet after 10 PM. Electric and water were fine, my site did not have sewer, but they have 3 dump stations on the way out. Holiday weekends book a year in advance.

RV amenities are outstanding. Best hook-ups I have ever seen. Management comes out and helps you back into your spot, and the spots are level concrete. However, the spots are cramped and there are no recreation facilities in the RV park. If you fish, this park is next to the marina. A couple good restaurants and antique shops are walking distance -- Phil's has some of the best seafood anywhere.

Park is in the middle of the forest adjacent to a state park. Our site was cramped, but there are larger ones available. All sites have a movable fire pit and picnic table. All hookups worked perfectly. Park is well cared for and offers basketball, playground, pool and game room.

You're either going to love this place, or hate it. You are literally on the beach, and chances are you will get stuck in the sand at some point. No specific spots or hookups, but there is a truck that comes around and sells water at .50 per gallon and will pump out for $30. If you like ATVing, this is paradise as there are great dunes right behind where you camp: you are in between the ocean and the dunes. Be sure to register and pay, as there is a stiff fine if you just park without doing that. People drive their loud ATVs 24/7, and it can be hazardous to walk around because of them. So, if you are looking for relaxation, stay away. But for the unique experience of camping right on a beach and being right by outstanding ATV riding, you can't beat it.

It's just a big, level, grassy field--but it gets the job done. Partial hookups at the site and a dump station by the entrance. No reservations. Very convenient location for visiting the wineries in the area. Watch out for gate locking time, we were stuck outside at about 10:30--but the friendly security guard saw us and let us in.

Beautiful heavily wooded location. Some sites have a view of Bass Lake. Adjacent to Millers Landing which offers showers, store, marina, and grill. They have sites which can accommodate a 40 footer, but it will be a tight squeeze both on the road and in the site. The friendly camp host sells firewood and each site has a fire ring. No hookups, and bring a water-thief to fill your tanks.

Mediocre campground in a beautiful location on the shore of Lake Rollins. Sites are gravel or dirt, waterfront sites may require lots of leveling. Store is well stocked, staff friendly. Could be a 10 with work to the sites, installation of electric and sewer hook-ups.

Membership resort, we were comped as perspective members. Located in the woods, some sites tricky to get into. Excellent amenities, pool, store, game room, activities. The amenities are the highlight of this park. Some staff members were rude, that is why I did not rate higher. Bass Lake is close, but this is not lakefront.

Was comped as I was a potential member. I agree with the previous reviewer, its a nice park--but not special enough to want to be a member as there are several equally nice parks in the area. We had a shaded spot one row back from the river. Spots are gravel, but quite level. I entered $10 for fee as the site would not let me put 0.

Electric hook-up hardly worked, no sewer hookup despite having been told this was a full hookup site. Otherwise, nice area, some spots hard to get into for larger RVs.

Great location on the shore of Lake Camanche, can keep your boat right by your campsite. All hookups work well, spots are paved with grass and new picnic tables in between. No bathrooms or showers in the RV area, you need to be self contained. Helpful campground host.

Located adjacent to Lake McClure, most campers will be boaters. Lots of trees in the hilly campground. Some of the sites require backing in up a hill, I was able to do this with my 30 foot Class C, my friend with a 34 foot Class A was not--but the friendly ranger moved him to another spot close by. From up on our hill we had nice shade trees and a nice lake view.

This is a membership resort that allows use by non-members at higher prices. Beautifully landscaped throughout with many top-notch activities/amenities such as horseback riding, swimming, mini-golf, and a bartender who mixes great cocktails. I would have given a 10, but the sewer backed up on me. When I informed the front desk of this, I was told the same thing happened at the same site last week. They should have fixed it last week!

Gorgeous location on the shore of Lake Havasu. Waterfront sites are worth the price, you will be right on a beach. Sites are wide enough for slides, but not much room once they are out. Staff is helpful. Only drawback is that the last 7 miles is a very windy and narrow road. Also, you can't drive an RV over the dam so you have to go by Parker, AZ--just keep in mind it takes a while to get this place.

Outstanding customer service! We got lost (best not to follow on-line mapping directions) and the manager met us in his car and led us to the park and into our site. Once near the site his assistant took over and told me exactly how to turn to get the rig (Class C + boat) into the spot perfectly to be by the hookups and be easy to get out in the morning. The park is older, but well maintined.

Very close to I-5 (they warned us when we made the reservation) so it is somewhat noisy at night. Shuttle to Disneyland runs every 30 minutes, and the staff is very accommodating. Park is clean, everything works, but there is not much landscaping. Good place to stay if you are visiting Disneyland.

Had a site directly on the river, very pretty place. Had to share the 30AMP, but there was no one next to us so it didn't matter. Nice playground, and they rent tubes to float down the river in. They seem to generate their own electricity, so there is a noisy generator on. Dump station is conveniently located. Staff is very accommodating, they even have a supply of small things that you might forget (e.g. can opener) that you can borrow at no charge.
