We stayed here one night while traveling through. Since it is off-season, most of the sites seem to go for the same rate. We had a pull-through site near the dog area which was great for us. Sites are gravel and, had we been staying longer, we would have worked on leveling but for one night, we didn't bother. The park was probably about 1/6 full. It looked like they had a lot of nice amenities for the summer months including miniature golf and a pool but they were closed for the season. We would stay here again.

We stayed here one night so that we could visit friends in Santa Cruz. We weren't towing and this was the most convenient location for them to pick us up for dinner. It is basically part of the overall parking lot for the harbor with 12 spaces designated for RVs. I think it greatly overpriced for what it is. We probably would not stay here again.

This park is right on the beach, and right under the flight path of planes taking off from LAX. Amazingly, after the first day, you don't really notice the planes all that much. Our rate was for the back row. It's $10 more a night for the front row right next to the sand. You park facing the ocean though and we had a great view. I see no reason to pay the higher price. Weekends are more crowded with lots of kids running around on bikes and skateboards so you have to watch out for them when you are coming and going. The restrooms were key coded and the showers had no doors or curtains so you had to be OK with being walked in on or time your shower to off peak. I had no problems. We were in LA to sight see and Dockweiler is a great starting spot with easy access to all of the other freeways. Nothing we wanted to visit was more than 40 minutes away in LA traffic. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed in this park several years ago and so stayed here again on our way both south and north for a total of 3 nights. The park has mostly long term residents, but there are also a number of spaces available for short term. They post a lot of rules about pets and where you can walk them, but no one actually hassled us. We walked our pets outside the park, across and up and down the street the park is on which is a country road. There is a pool that we didn't use, but we did use the hot tub every night we were there - that was delightful. The Wi-Fi worked well and we were very satisfied with our sites. They are covered in pea gravel and marked with a line staked in the ground. They are quite wide so you can park a vehicle alongside your rig without any difficulty and there is also street parking just outside the RV park proper. A park host checked us in the first time when we arrived late and was very nice and helpful. We would stay here again when in that area. It is one exit south of Morro Bay off Hwy 1 so it's easy to go into town for activities.

When you look up this park's website, they talk about it overlooking Lake Chabot, but from the RV sites, we didn't see any water. The 12 RV sites are at the top of a hill and only 2 are drive through. The pads are paved, but not necessarily level. I didn't see a shower in the bathroom but I didn't look very hard for one. The one ladies room toilet was partially outdoors and one night when I went in, there were little paw prints on and in the toilet from some little critter looking for water. The only activity you could participate in from the RV sites (without another vehicle) is hiking. The rate above didn't include our two dogs (another $2 each for each night) or the rental car that we got our second day there. That cost us another $8 a day to park it there. So hidden costs made it more like $44 a day. Their breakers tripped on our rig every time I tried to plug in our 30 amp system. They sent someone immediately after we reported it, but the people they sent said it was us and there was nothing wrong. I asked to move to a different site, but all 12 were rented. There was a sign at the entrance about not using generators so we were really stuck. We did string a couple of power strips together out the window to plug into the 20 amps for our coffee maker and toaster. (Now we have a heavy duty extension cord but we didn't when we got there.) When we tried the full rig on 20 amp with an adapter, that also tripped the breaker. Over the next 3 days I talked to 3 different repair people who said it was not us, it was them. I reported that when a worker stopped to tell us to unplug as they were working on the electric but no one checked further. At that time (our 2nd night) they said we could run our generator which we did for a while. We ended up having to run our generator for a while each of the remaining nights to keep our battery up for our lights. Luckily, it wasn't hot there. We were on a 24 day trip and this was the only place where we had trouble plugging in. I talked to another RV repair guy about a week later and he said breakers on a service are like surge protectors, they wear out over time when they are tripped and eventually they break. I think that is what happened here, but no one would check it our any further. Perhaps, if the next campers there had trouble they did. I sure hope so. If you like hiking, quiet and not many RVs around you, this is a nice park. It is quite a drive to get to it though. And there is a gun range nearby that is open Friday - Monday so if your dogs are gun-shy, I wouldn't recommend it. This is about the only RV park in the Oakland area but I probably wouldn't stay here again.

As other reviewers have noted, the entrance to this park is through a used car dealership and the directions to it call for two quick turns - as the park is just off a street that parallels route 273. It is a well kept park, all back in sites with concrete pads that are quite wide and deep. There is a nice strip of grass between each one. The park is quiet. It is near a railroad track but the trains don't seem to run during the night while you are sleeping - at least I didn't hear any. Our Wi-Fi signal was excellent - one of the fastest I've experienced so I don't know what the previous reviewer ran into. We were across from the laundry - perhaps that is where the equipment is - I don't know. I was very surprised to find out there were no bathrooms or showers here. I don't think I've ever encountered that before. The camp hosts were very friendly and helped us get backed in and set up when we arrived after dark. The owners were also pleasant and most helpful in working to correct an error of accidentally paying twice. I forgot to mention I had booked a reservation online to the camp host and I also forgot my credit card had already been charged so I paid twice. Everyone was most apologetic and prompt in rectifying the situation when I reported it. There is a nice swimming pool behind the laundry facility though we didn't use it, and a cute goldfish/koi pond. Beyond that there are concrete shuffleboard courts. There is also a nice dog walk area towards the front of the park. The rate we paid was with Good Sam and doesn't include local taxes which brought it up to a little over $30 a night. We would stay here again when in the area.

I would agree with other recent reviews. This is a nice park for a stop over. I was confused about where to go to get to the site until I pulled back in the street and saw the signs for Row 1 and Row 2. Our site was long enough for our trailer and truck without having to unhook as we were only spending the night. The wi-fi and cable were excellent. The owner was very friendly and accommodating. She told us about a number of things to see in town including many murals and several restaurants. We weren't interested, but appreciated her sharing the information. We would stay here again.

We were about to pass by this park on our way to Dubois when we decided to see if they had room for a couple of days. They did, but the $54 a night was with a 15% discount. To me, that is extremely expensive for what you are getting, but the choices near Jackson and the Grand Tetons with hookups seem rather sparse and even more expensive, so we took this. The sites around us were all gravel and dirt and not perfectly level. We had to use leveling blocks on one side of the rig. The site was wide enough that we were able to pull our truck in along side which was a plus. Each site had a picnic table but there are no trees around any of the sites so in the summer it would be pretty hot. The threaded top to the sewer had been broken off and the cap was just sitting on top of the opening. I didn't realize that until we went to dump just before we were leaving. Even with the top two inches broken off, the pipe was higher than the surrounding land. I was able to dump by using the setup I have to keep the hose off the ground but had I not had that, it would have been very difficult to dump at the site. We were in a side area not directly behind the main park. It was quiet there and the Wi-Fi was very good. There is no TV. The only trash site is a garbage truck with a bear proof opening over by the store. That is quite a hike from most of the sites. They also have a restaurant, gasoline station and propane. The gas and propane are very expensive, but nice to have available when the nearest town is 30+ miles away. We didn't eat in the restaurant so I don't know if it's any good or how expensive it was. You're fairly close to the Moran entrance to Great Teton National Park and about 38 miles from Jackson. If your goal is to see the park and you are OK not having any amenities, this is a good place to stay. There are a few other parks closer to Jackson, but the ones I checked out were even more expensive. It could be a great location if they put some of the money they are getting into improving the park. They get away with the prices they charge because the other places are even more expensive. The people in the office were friendly and I did not have any trouble there. This park served our needs and we would probably stay here again if we came back to this area.

The park was in it's final few days before closing down for the season so many sites were unavailable. We were in a basic site which did not include cable TV. We did have Wi-Fi but the reception was spotty - quite good sometimes but interminably slow other times. There was an indoor heated pool and hot tub. We used the hot tub. The pool was being used by unattended children when we were there. They have a miniature golf course and other activities for kids. All in all, it seemed like a nice campground. We were on a gravel site and had to use blocks to get level on one side. There were shade trees but not for every site. It's about six miles outside of West Yellowstone but with the 70 MPH Montana speed limit, it didn't take long to get in to town. I think KOAs are a bit expensive for what they offer. That and the spotty Wi-Fi is why I only gave it a 8.

We found this park delightful. The sites are in the trees and as others have said, many are gravel or grass and a few are quite narrow. We have never before seen pastel painted picnic tables, and we never expect to again. We asked for W/E only and were placed in a grassy site near the office. The road noise is definitely a factor during the day, but we were not bothered by it at night. The owners also operate a B&B and offer a great breakfast every day: wonderful baked goods, no preservatives, and a camp fire each night. We didn't miss the TV as our Wi-Fi coverage was superb. There is a phone booth on the property. I didn't check to see if it worked, but assume it does. There is a playground area for children though there were not many children here when we were here as it was after Labor Day. The owners were very helpful and we really enjoyed our stay here. We would most definitely stay here again.

We called ahead and made a reservation the same day over Labor Day weekend. The owner asked how I was on backing up, and I said OK if I had a lot of room to maneuver. I told him we just wanted a place for the night and to not unhook if possible. When we got here, he had us in a pull through which was very convenient. It was long enough so we didn't need to unhook. The part of the park we were in was all grass, but had all the hookups including cable. Like someone else said: no station list was provided but we found what we wanted. The site was fairly level and the next morning we were able to just drive out and around with no trouble. There are some paved sites, and it looks like there are quite a few full timers. Some even appeared to be permanently set up, single wides. The Wi-Fi was great: among the top few we have ever had. For what we paid, we were very happy and would stop here again for the night.

Our RVW group (22 rigs) camped here for four nights. The camp ground is beautiful - it's one of the nicest I've been too and more like a state park with hookups - you really feel like you are camping as you are among the trees. There are two "fire circles" with picnic tables for campers to use. On Saturday night the park hosts a hot dog and marshmallow roast. The weekend we were there they also had live music which was very nice. It was very hot while we were there - over 100 during the afternoon (though it cooled off at night) - and one afternoon the power went out to the whole park. They were quick to respond - letting people know what happened and getting the power company in to fix it. I think everyone using their AC overloaded the system. Some people with voltage meters said the voltage was close to being in the red (on the low side). Our site had great Wi-Fi but the site next to us could not get on. I think your location in relation to the trees and the Wi-Fi tower makes a big difference. The only place there was cell phone coverage was right by the office. They only have satellite TV and will rent you a box to hook into their system. It was on the expensive side and we didn't. I heard one of the camp hosts say that the owner is considering running cable TV (25 channels) to all the sites and pulling the Satellite TV as that system is aging. I don't know when or if that will really happen. They do have a large DVD collection they will loan out. Their website is incomplete with many unfinished pages and has been that way for a year or more so don't rely too much on that. It says that there is a whole set of rules concerning dogs, but I never found it on the website and they didn't hand it out with literature at the park when we signed in. However, no one bothered us about our dogs and there are some lovely trails to walk your dogs in the shade of the trees. As some other reviewers have noted, the camp hosts were very helpful but the owner can be difficult to deal with. I had problems with him while setting up this rally, but it worked out pretty well in the end. If you're traveling as a single rig I think you will find this park delightful.

We camped here as part of a group of RVing Women for the weekend. The owner went out of her way to accommodate us. They worked hard to finish a brand new clubhouse for our use. While small, it met our needs as we usually have between 24 and 40 women at one of these events. The sites are a tad narrow and they ask you to stay off the grass so parking is a bit tricky in the back in sites. They have a large field available for tenting and boondocking as well as sites with all utilities. The wi-fi at our site was good. In the summer months, there is a trolley that runs on weekends and comes right through the park to pick you up. It will take you into downtown Seaside for $1.00. Many of the ladies took the trolley and said it was a lot of fun. Parking in Seaside in the summer can be tricky and not everyone has a vehicle so this is a wonderful plus. There is a lot to do in Seaside so if you are camping with your children, it can be a great destination. We enjoyed our stay here and would definitely camp here again.

We stayed in this park two nights on our way home. When we called, we asked if they had any pull throughs and were told they had one which happened to be available. That is true, this is the only pull through site in the park and it is new. It was easy to get into and we had plenty of room. It's on the curve of one of their streets. It isn't level side to side: you'll need to put boards under your wheels on the side away from the road. It's gravel and there is no concrete pad though for our rig, the pad is usually in the wrong place anyway so we didn't care. I can definitely see that many of the other sites are small and getting in to some of them would be a challenge. We received a "goodies bag" upon checking in that contained very helpful info about local businesses, some advertising about the park (pens) and a little bag of Famous Amos' Cookies. No park ever gave us cookies before! We did have trouble with the Wi-Fi the first night but after calling the Customer Service number on the card we were given, it did improve. The park is quiet, the landscaping is lovely and we were most pleasantly surprised. We would definitely stay here again. The nightly rate with a Good Sam discount was $40.50.

We camped here two nights on a trip to see the National Parks in Utah. What we discovered on our trip is many parks in this part of the world close on Oct 31st but this one stays open until the middle of November. It appears to be a relatively new park - the sites are all pull thrus with plenty of room for big slide outs. Some of the sites have trees - mostly young. It will be a while until there is real shade here. The park is all gravel, but the sites are level. There are little islands of green here and there. The bathrooms and showers were great. There is a small basketball court and playground area for kids. There isn't much in the area so you should buy groceries before you get there. It was a good location for us. There are a lot of parks in the area to see and this is a good, central location. Originally we had thought we would stay in Monument Valley, but when I couldn't ascertain if Goulding's allowed pets from their website, we went on and found this place. It was cheaper and served our needs very well.

This is an older park and kind of funky in a nice way. They have some interesting cacti and other landscaping and a cute "White Bee Hive". You'll have to come here to see what that means. The sites are wide enough once you get in, but we had trouble getting into ours as the turn was too tight. Someone at the park helped us get situated. The sites are gravel and dirt with concrete pads but because of our slide-out we couldn't use the concrete pads. They were pretty level anyway, but they could use some more gravel to cover up the dirt. When wet, it is red mud and tracks in on everything. There are quite a few shade trees on the property. The hookups were all good and the free Wi-Fi is one of the best we've had, plus did I mention it's free. The bathroom/shower facility is old but it was clean. They provide you with a key as opposed to a code so you have to remember to take the key and also leave it when you check out. I couldn't figure out how to get the heater on. The thermostat was set to 80 but I couldn't feel that there was any heat at all, so I didn't use the shower. The park is right in downtown Kanab so you're within walking distance to a number of fast food places and restaurants. There is a laundromat across the street with a large vehicle car wash. Our main reason for staying here was it is pretty much equal driving distances from several of the national parks we wanted to visit. It was a good place for our needs, but wouldn't be for everyone.

This place is definitely "off the beaten path" if you take Old Highway 91 to get to it. Part of that road is dirt and washboard like and goes through an old creek bed. We discovered upon leaving that we could go through the nearby state park and have a much better road. We used a Tom Tom GPS to get here but it took us out via the state park. We didn't have reservations as the CampClub USA literature had said they didn't take reservations, but that is not true. You can make reservations. The office folks were very friendly and accommodating. They allowed us to pick our own site from those that were available. It wasn't quite level, but we were able to remedy that with some boards under the wheels. We had enough room for our slide out, but the connections were on the opposite side from the rig hookups which was a bit inconvenient. Sites are close together. There were lots of nice trees and grassy spots as well as a nice path to walk the dogs on. The park is on a hillside so there is some hiking up and down unless you use your vehicle for every little thing. They charge extra for cable TV and Wi-Fi, but we were able to do multiple computers for one fee which has not been the case at other parks. The facilities were great. We didn't make use of them all, but we did see them: pool, hot tub, shuffle board, great game room, nice bathroom and shower facilities. This was a great place to stay and we would definitely come here again. The rate I quoted was the CampClub USA rate without extras.

As others have mentioned, there are some pretty tight turns to get into this park. The sites are grassy and would be muddy if it rained. Most of the extra features they offer in the summer were not being offered while we were there. They did have a potluck on Saturday night which we didn't attend. They had one of the nicest dog walk paths through the woods that we have encountered. We were camping with the Camp Club USA discount, but by the time we added an extra person, 2 dogs, Internet and cable we were up to $30 a night so the savings wasn't that great. It is conveniently located to the redwoods and for fisherman it is right on the river. A river site was $5 extra. A camp host helped us get situated. The park wasn't busy, but I would say in the summer months when it is, you would find the sites a bit narrow and on top of each other. We would stay there again if we wanted to visit this area.

We stayed here over a 3 day weekend with a group of RVing women. Our trailer was put in an overflow area which was actually the parking lot right outside the office. We had everything we needed except dumping ability, but we were free to dump upon leaving. We got a reduced rate for this inconvenience. Our Wi-fi connection was great, but some of our members who were farther away from the office did complain of dropped signals. The park owners went out of their way to make sure the group had everything we needed. We had use of their clubhouse area and they brought in extra tables that allowed us to sit outside for our group meals as well as inside. With our group, the park was full for the weekend. Saturday morning they provided coffee and pastries to everyone in the park. The setting was lovely with some sites right across a driveway from the Rogue River. You could hear a little noise from I-5 but overall it was very peaceful. About half the sites were occupied by long term residents. We would stay there again.

This appears to be a fairly new park with young landscaping. It will be a few years before they can say they have any shade. We only stayed one night. The sites were paved and level and hookups were all good. We arrived at 5:30 and found the office closed. Posted hours were 8 to 8. An envelope was taped to the door with our site number, but no information for the bathroom/shower code or Wi-Fi code. A friend traveling with us in another motorhome called the number on the literature we were given and got no answer. The next day we found out an employee had recently quit and they couldn't cover all the office hours listed. The man we spoke to, who appeared to be the owner, said he didn't include the bathroom code because homeless people sometimes took down the envelopes and camped out in the bathrooms. When we said we tried to call and got no answer, he made excuses. He was unable to take our credit card info because he didn't have the computer up yet so we were forced to pay cash in order to get on the road. It's a decent park with nice facilities but they need to figure out a better way to get the needed information to late arrivals. We were camping with Camp Club USA memberships so we only paid half price. If I had paid full price and been that inconvenienced, I would have been very upset.
