For our setup this park works fine. We are a 17' trailer and we like a woodsy setting. Reminds me of a USFS campground. Being February, I expected the water to be turned off at the sites, but it was on! Bathrooms were closed for the season in the camp loops - a bit inconvenient but we had our own in the trailer. Very shaded. Great trails. I'd stay again.

A large variety of sites that should suit everyone. We were prepared to camp without hookups and that's what we chose. We had a woodsy site with stairs down to the water. Lots of hiking trails. Though our hike up to Striped Peak was cut short due to the closeness of gunshots. Camp hosts were very nice and fellow campers were quiet. There is a very nice children's play area and basketball courts. This is a well known area for tide pool exploration.

This is operated by the US Bureau of Reclamation. New Melones Lake has two recreation areas as the lake spans two counties. The Glory Hole Recreation Area in Calaveras County has two campgrounds Ironhorse and Big Oak. The sites are big and paved. Each has views of the lake and surrounding hills. This is a very popular lake for boating and fishing. It has a large marina and many boats and jet skis for rent. There are also 18 miles of mountain biking trails. We would stay here again.

This is the most we've ever paid. Small sites and dirt pads. Nice facilities and lodge. Lots of activities for kids. Nice tent sites. Nice laundry facility. Manager seemed scattered. Stayed one night and found another place for the next 3 nights.

Park would rate much higher for us if the noise was less. Highway noise and train noise! Wow! I would estimate one train per hour. It wasn't necessarily the honking but the fact that the track was 15 to 20 feet away. The park was clean and the bathroom/shower facilities were top notch: Warm and well lit. Maybe that's why they charge extra for its use.

Former KOA. Park is pretty well kept, but we were put in a site in a row with full-time residents' pretty run down trailers. They came and went all evening. The hot tub was nice; some laundry machines were out of order. If we ever need to stay here again we'll pay a couple extra $ for the "Prime" sites. They are primarily occupied by travelers and seem better landscaped with grass and plantings.

This resort is on Clear Lake and is a popular place to hold family reunions. There is a large clubhouse, cabins, houses, marina, dock, pool. Drawback was the dirt sites and tricky access to some. View is nice; landscaping around office, pool, and clubhouse is lush. Laundry facilities work well. The modem hookup is in the clubhouse, and it was in use when we walked down with our laptop. Arrived the next morning as soon as the office opened and used it then. We would stay here again. Reservations are probably needed for summer. Weekends are often reserved through fall.

Beautifully manicured park. Excellent restrooms and showers. Modern laundry facility. Pool is open. Convenient to I-5 and Redding. The big downfall was the I-5 noise (constant drone) and the race track that's nearby. Saturday night racing went on well after 10pm. Ask for free wifi passwords in office.

This park is undergoing renovation which hopefully will be a good thing. Most buildings are very run down. We chose not to use their bathrooms or showers. Remote and quiet. Full-time residents occupy approx. 15-20 sites. Staff was friendly and helpful. DVDs available to rent from the office/store. 5 miles to great mountain biking trails at Bogg's Mtn.

Wonderfully kept park. Asphalt drives and pads. Restrooms/showers were great. Each one was unisex with its own private door. Staff was friendly. Nice laundry facilities. Kind of spendy, but convenient to S. Lake Tahoe and the Marlette Flume Trail.

Chose this over all the parking lot type RV parks in Carson City. Very quiet, nice views. Some sites had shade shelters over the picnic table. Many trails for walking, biking or horses. Would stay here again.

We really like this campground, but many others do too. Often the hookup sites are reserved even in the fall. Very handy to Bend activities. I appreciate the electricity-saving solar showers but wish the temperature could be adjusted. I like my showers hotter. Shaving legs with goosebumps isn't fun.

Very scenic, lots of birds to entertain you. Quite windy when we were there. We chose a protected site to make it tolerable. Showers had great water pressure and adjustible temperature. Middle of summer would probably be a better time to visit. Dump station available in park.

Paved pads, large grassy sites with mature trees. I-5 can be heard but it did seem muffled a bit. Loop F has laundry facilities, something I haven't seen at a state park. River trail and access for fishing.

Paved sites, nice separation between them. Frozen water spigot in the morning. Thankfully the sun was out and didn't take too long to thaw. This is our second visit and we'll return again. Lots of new trails for walking/biking.

Very friendly staff and camp hosts. They have really worked on the facilities at this campground since we were here about 18 years ago. Falls are still beautiful. Lots of new trails for hiking, bicycling, and horses.
