This park is always a favorite of ours and a very good RV destination for the San Diego area. We have stayed here a number of times and have always had a good experience. It did seem the park was a bit worn this time and that probably was due to what appeared to be heavy usage. As fast as one rig pulls out, another will pull into the same space thus there is little time for sprucing up the site for the new tenant. We found park staff friendly and helpful. Easy walking to restaurants and the harbor. One useful upgrade we found this time was that keys to access points have been changed to combination keypads. No key deposits or carrying of keys necessary! The park has cable TV, and if planning to do satellite, check in advance as a number of the sites are shaded thus blocking signals. Park is also very dog friendly and has three dog areas within easy access to different parts of the park. Even though this is a busy park and spaces are tight for the bigger rigs, we have found neighbors to be helpful in moving vehicles and spotting each other when needed. You will not be disappointed when visiting this RV park!

This park is a spotlessly clean, well laid out park with easy access to major roads. It is an "adult" park and has few amenities. Does not have showers or restrooms but does have a laundry with new, clean machines. Each site is huge, with parking for two vehicles in addition to the RV. The site also has room for a free standing canopy and other picnic gear. We had our own Wi-Fi so did not use the park's but it was offered free. 4G signal is very strong in the area for both AT&T and Verizon. For those campers not having satellite local TV reception seemed to be popular. Very pet friendly. Lots of restaurants and provision stores in the area. Easy access to all San Diego Destinations and Mexico. It is possible this park will become condos in a few months but that is not certain at this time.

An older park, but well maintained. There seem to be a number of long term folks staying here, but all sites are kept up and folks we talked to friendly. Each site has a cement pad, table and narrow but adequate black top parking site. Numerous free cable channels. We had our own Wi-Fi so cannot comment on the parks free service. The park is handy to local businesses, even though located right on Highway 395. The park is quiet.

Limped in on a Sunday evening with a disabled tow vehicle. Had called them prior to arrival and had been given a direct in site via phone. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Park is clean, easy access with a small store and gift shop. The pool and jacuzzi were busy, but a welcome relief after traveling. Only negative thing was that we did encounter some brisk winds for the afternoon. Seems most of the travelers are overnighters with a few permanent sites. We have stopped here several times in the past and have never had a bad experience!

This is an older campground with a number of long term tenants. The campground was adequate, but the price was very high for quality of the campground. There did need to be some minor repairs in the showers, and the electric pedestal only had a 50 amp outlet (had an adapter to 30 amps). Many sites are pull-through and are gravel or dirt. Just was not up to par for the price charged. Our price was after the Good Sam Discount. Prices at this park are as high as $49 per night.

After reading some of the previous ratings, and after walking around the park, I wondered if I was at a different location! Perhaps the management has changed, but what I found was a park located in a meadow setting with a small irrigation canal and lake. There are a number of trees around so a camper has a choice of being in the sunshine or finding a shaded site. The restrooms and showers were older block construction (this is fairground property), but the showers and restrooms were clean, swept, and dry. Showers were free and upon check in each camper is given a lock combination for the facility. Parking is on gravel/dirt (remember this is a fairground parking lot!) but we found dried forest grass at our campsite. One can buy a newspaper at the park office but anything else can be obtained in town which is close. Good value for the money, easy access and this is a park we would come back to again.

This is a spotlessly clean park. Easy access off SR 395 with a restaurant on site for breakfast and lunch. Price seemed a bit high for a basic facility. Last stopped here two years ago and have been treated well both times by staff. When calling ahead to check for availability ( Holiday) they said they only had a few spaces left and wanted to lock us in with pre-pay. On arrival the place was almost empty and remained so. Still a nice park, clean, well maintained and with only a little highway noise.

This is a rustic US Forest Service campground located at 10,000 feet. It is one of the closest parks to Bodi State Historic park. The camp host was helpful and they take the federal senior pass. Have vault toilets and no showers. They do have water. A steep climb for RVs so only smaller ones recommended. Quiet and abundant fishing in several lakes. They do have bears. A great rustic campground if you like high altitudes!

Very clean park on the Nevada / California boarder. Each site is paved and you step out of your RV onto soft grass! Very nice and relaxing. Casino, restaurant and small store across the parking lot from the RV park. A bit pricey but this is Reno and the park is spotless. Have stayed here before and will stay here again when in the area.

This is an excellent travelers' park, easy access off 395 and close to a number of points of interest in the area. Staff was friendly and easy to work with. Campground was clean and everything worked.

This is a membership Excapee co-op park. Spotless and well laid out. Many, many rules as this park is governed by a Board of Directors. Rural and friendly and a great place for a hike!

An older park set in Oak Trees. Many residents appear to be permanent and RV tend to be older. Passport America welcome. Recommended that you find this campground in the daylight as parking can be tricky in the dark due to the placement of the trees. Does have some pull through sites but recommended for smaller rigs. Campsites are individual and restrooms and showers are a hike up the hill. Older and need of some maintenance and cleaning but worth the price. A great Casino Buffet dinner is less than three miles away!

National Monument rustic campground. Camped on the Senior Pass so raters were very good. Not crowded and plenty of places to explore. Currently the road from the Cactus garden to Interstate 10 is closed due to a major wash out. Unknown time until repaired. The best part of the park is northern from Jumbo rocks north. Outhouse toilets and plenty of them and clean! No other amenities, you pack everything in with you. No water or phones

A park with lots of grass and trees. There is a lake but no water contact is allowed. They have a children's water splash area that was a welcome relief for the kids in the 108 temps while we were there. Park is well maintained with boating and fishing available. They also have a store and restaurant there happened to be a concert on the weekend we were at this park and it was free to campers! A nice bonus to a good park One important note we made, even though it was very hot and the park was almost full, there was no electricity interruption. Made for a good air conditioned weekend for the oldsters while the youngsters played in the water.

Have stayed here several times as the last night before arriving at home. Park roads are not paved and some of the sites seem quite permanent. Don't let this fool you! The park is well maintained, and the staff are helpful and friendly. Restrooms and showers are rustic but clean and maintained. This is not a high end park, but you are not paying high end prices. A great place for an overnight stop when traveling through the area. They are a Passport America, camping club, and Good Sam park.

This park is about half way between Watsonville and Gilroy on Hwy 152 (Heckler Pass Highway) It is about 15 minutes east of Watsonville in the mountains. This is also a county park and was a very beautiful place for RV, Tent and they have Yurts for rent too. Road is steep and would be difficult for a big rig, but a small RV 22' 30' would have no problem. Sites are back in, they have flush toilets and showers. Showers are brand new and spotlessly clean. You are in tall Redwood trees so minimal air card and TV available. Most all sites are in the trees. Each site has a table and fire pit.

This is an RV park associated with a Motel, Restaurant, Gas Station, Store and truck stop. There appeared to be extended guests staying here, possibly construction workers or farm help. Park was neat and clean. Good Wi-Fi. Everything was convenient as it all was on premise This is not a vacation destination but a good overnight stop when traveling 101 through the King City area. They charge for showers. Showers and bathrooms are locked and guests given keys. Has some freeway noise.

This resort is clean and has flowers here and there. Restrooms and showers are clean. That is about all that is good about this park! RV's are jammed so close you can not extend an awning. Lots of permanent types living in older RV's. Lots are very small with hookups near the front of RV so you have to stretch hoses to reach. Overpriced for amenities. Is both a Passport America and a good Sam park but very much overpriced.

This park was another of those pleasant surprises at an older park. It has been recently redone, and while looking a little tired from the highway, once into the park it was discovered that the amenities were well above par. Restrooms and showers were spotless and camping was on the flat with a great view of the redwoods. Your Passport America gets you a great discount with friendly hosts! This is a great place for a lot less money than some of the other expensive parks in the area. This park is at the northern entrance to the avenue of the Giants so would make a perfect place to stop for a while to explore the area

As stated by others, sites are oddly shaped but adequate. We found Wi-Fi fast and dependable. Nice park and in a great location. Road noise is not a big factor as Hwy 199 has very little traffic at night. Showers were very clean, but restrooms could use some work. Stopped up toilets and lack of paper. Would return as it is an easy in and easy out park and reasonably clean and taken care of.

Restrooms and showers were spotlessly clean. Campground is generally in very good condition. There are some minor blacktop issues in various spaces but that would not affect your stay. They charge for showers which is a cheap shot as this is a high rate park. Staff very pleasant and helpful, We had a problem with one site and they promptly moved us to a site we choose that was available. Nice creek runs through the park and restaurants are within walking distance. Stores and provisions are a short drive. Easy on and off the freeway

A very clean and spotless campground. As stated by other reviewer, sites are narrow and all are blacktop. No tables or shade. Restrooms and showers are spotless. Staff is friendly, and shopping is close. Right off SR101 so egress is easy. A great stopping place for the night or to use as a base for area exploration.

This is a very busy park during the summer and appears to be a snowbird park along with a number of fisherpersons. Sites are blacktop with grass. Quite an expensive park for this area of the country as the park appears to be a bit worn and in need of minor maintenance in the restrooms. Locks broken on showers and shower curtains soiled and needing repair. While the amenities are satisfactory, one would expect a pristine park for the high daily fees.

Nice rustic campground that appears to be an older park with some refurbishing. A bit difficult to find as signage is poor. Clean restrooms and showers, nice pool lots of lawn and shade. Many campers at this park appear to be long term or permanent. We did find everyone very friendly. Accept Passport America and other discount cards. would definitely stay at this park again.

What a surprise and a very nice treat! This park was spotless in every way. There are nice wide grass sites, warm pool and a hot pool to soak away the hours on the road. It is a bit off the beaten path and up a short dirt road, but there is easy access back to the freeway and fuel stations. The park gets hot sulfur water from up stream at an old hotel/sanitarium site (that is worth a visit also) Lots of grass with friendly staff, kid friendly, nice clean. A fair price for a spotless summer park. They advise they are closed in the winter due to high winds and cold in this area. Overnight like we did on this trip, or I could stay in this park for days, it is so nice!

Nice shady park. They even have a Tornado Shelter for Guests! Bathes and restrooms were acceptable and quite clean. Unique design the way they park vehicles in a wagon shaped park. Friendly staff. One negative item was the bird droppings all over the motorhome during the time at this park. If you park under or near a tree during certain times of the year, you will need to wash their droppings off your awnings before leaving! It is nasty!

Large very friendly and clean park. Upon check in we were escorted to our site. The sites are all cement pads surrounded by grass. Facilities are spotless. Price for what is provided is very fair. Easy to access from several directions, Wal-Mart, Pilot fuel, and other providers are in the immediate area. Full hookups include Wi-Fi and cable TV. Everything works, which is rare in any RV park!

This used to be a Passport America park but dropped the discount. No issue as the price is very fair for value received. Appears to be in the process of upgrading so hopefully the price will remain the same. Spotless clean and brand new restrooms and showers. Parking sites are large, level and all the utilities are new. The park is next to a major highway so there is road noise, but that is exchanged for easy access. Good value.

A sparse but adequate park. Not a vacation destination, but a good value for an over night stop when you are not looking for anything fancy. Passport America Discount

A real neat little 50's RV park! Located next to Camping World and it looked like it was right out of mom and dad's era! Restrooms and showers clean and neat and a great pool and spa. Nice store and the real treat was the registration clerk had a theater organ hidden in the recreation room. He played the organ during the evening and the stop was very enjoyable. Great value for the money spent. We will be back.

Clean friendly park. They know they are the only park in town but they still work hard to make their campers comfortable Close to Pipestone Monument and other tourist attractions in the area

Level park with clean restrooms and showers. Attitude of the check-in clerk left a lot to be desired. First said no Wi-Fi was available than when reminded they advertised WiFi he suddenly found a site! After charging a premium price per night in this park -- Our rate was with the Good Sam discount, they still charge for showers! It will cost you about a dollar per shower so if two of you are camping add another two dollars to the daily rate. Chatted with other campers who also noted problems with the desk staff. I will probably avoid this park in future trips.

This park was a pleasant surprise. Looked pretty shaky when we drove in, but we were met by a very helpful host and soon were in place. Park is rustic. The view of the Black Hills is great and this park is close to town. It is a passport America Discount park so rates are very reasonable. Bathrooms and showers were rustic but clean and everything worked.

Campground was run down with lack of maintenance. Problems viewed were 50% of showers not working, holes in restroom floor, keys issued for restroom were not necessary as locks were not working, camp site markers down and damaged, poor attitude of registration staff when problems were brought to their attention. This could be a nice little park close to Mt Rushmore. It is very run down and associated with the Travel lodge Hotel Chain. One would expect to pay premium prices for a park close to an attraction, but price was high for a good quality park in the area, let alone the very poor shape the park was in.
