Very overpriced. It is basically an old parking lot which has been modified to serve as RV park. The restrooms and toilets are clean. Also the pool and hot tub are very well maintained. It is conveniently located near San Francisco. The view was fantastic but the park itself requires some maintenance. It is the first park were we had fast internet. In term of facilities we had a very positive impression. But: two issues are serious. There is no management after 5 pm. That is a serious issue as we saw unpleasant, uninvited persons on the campground. We did not feel very safe. Also there are pertinent residents that liked to smoke marijuana just behind our RV. Not something we would like to expose our children to. We were happy to leave, and will not return.

Very friendly staff. If you wish to enjoy fauna, than this is the place to be. We saw many seals and sea-otters. The campsite is small and located at the harbor. It is overpriced for what it has to offer. The free Wi-Fi didn't work when we were here. The restrooms are spotless and well-maintained.

Beautiful clean campground. A bit pricy though. Not clear why it has to be that expensive. We stayed on many places of the same quality for half the price. It has a nice swimming pool and on a walking distance of 15 minutes you will find a great beach with seals and dolphins. The restrooms and showers are spotless. Great place to stay.

Everything you may expect from a good state park camping. It has clean showers and bathrooms and it is very near a beach. Friendly and helpful staff. There are rangers that give guided tours for kids. Worth a recommendation.

If you are looking for an unique experience come here. If you are into having a decent vacation, drive further to one of the many state park camp sites starting 30 miles further down the road. This camp is unique for several reasons. 1. It has a unique price. $132 for a family of five. 2. You are treated in a unique way by the managing ‘landlord’ who feels that guests are employees. 3. You will learn how to wave away all the complaints by referring to disclaimers without solving them: unique. 4. Your will experience a unique shower with vomit on the floor in the evening and still there in the morning. 5. You will experience how it feels to be a sardine in a can. 6. The positive thing is the magnificent view on the ocean. Some explanation. We arrived here around 20 hours. We made a reservation. We picked up a meal from the downstairs fish shop. During the meal the manager came up to us. He commanded us to move the picnic table to the back of the site and to drive our RV to the back as one of our wheels was on the pavement. We told him we didn’t touch the table but I do not belief he really cared. We wanted to wait to after the meal but the ‘landlord’ was not amused. He forced us to move the table to the edge of the rim. The total space left for a family of five was two feet. Unacceptable (we felt like sardines). We complained that the internet was down. Without a glimpse the ‘landlord’ said there is a disclaimer in the contract we just signed (?). My daughter took a shower and came back with a sweater contaminated with vomit. She told me somebody vomited in the shower. We went up there and it was really bad. The ‘landlord’ only cleans the bathrooms between 10.30 and 12.00 hours in the morning. It seems that there is no checkup during other moments. Simply believe the reviews. I even feel bad to give them a rating where they earn one point. It is a horrible place. You may expect much more for the amount of money they charge. For $132 you can camp several days in a much better fashion, 30 miles down the road.

It is all about the money. That is what applies to this campground. We chose this camp site because of all the advertising on their website. Full hook ups, fire pits, rafting on the Colorado River. It really was a lot of promises. When we arrived after visiting the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, we were really exhausted and not in the mood for trouble. This is, looking back, why we probably didn't leave. The unpleasant surprises started with the registration. We are a family of 5 and had to pay an additional $4 for our third child (nine years old). This added to the extreme high rate (in relation to the quality of the camp) of $35. The second surprise came a minute later. The kids wanted to build a fire and we asked for firewood. The desk officer said, "Oh but than you have to decide whether you want a fire pit or a sewer." We asked why. Well, there are places with a fire pit and without sewers or places with a sewer without fire pits. The price is the same (?). We still do not understand the rational. We were two days in national parks so we needed a sewer, so ended up at a public fire pit. Then the toilets. They were basically chemical without lighting. Not a surprise, that it was a risk to enter in the morning. There were showers but you had to pay $2.25 (in quarters) and not convenient. So that added another $11.25 to the rent. Then the promise of a river. There was nothing: to the big disappointment of the kids. The rafting was far away from the camp site. The site has nothing more to offer than the many government owned campsites in the area. Come here for half the price and avoid disappointments.

Divine, never have been on a RV resort like this. It has the exposure of a luxury hotel but is still a RV resort. Very conveniently located near the strip and equipped with a wonderful pool to survive the killing heat of Las Vegas day time. The only minor comment is the way the Wi-Fi is managed. It is pay-Wi-Fi ($5.99) and very slow and instable. It only works on one device which is a problem with a family of 5 which all have their own Apple device. Except for that, it is a perfect place for families.

We stay here on our way to Las Vegas and coming from Tahoe. The park was a happy surprise. Very friendly staff. It is basically a park for permanent residents with a few spots for RVs on the move. It is however very clean and the manager is very helpful and dedicated. The only issue that can improve, is that the internet works with coupons. As we are traveling with a family of 5 with 5 iPods, iPads and Mac's, it is not very efficacious to work in this way. It however is a minor comment. The bathrooms were very clean and this is one of those few campgrounds that understand that a wall between the toilet and the shower is hygienic!

We ended up here after failure in finding a good spot in Yosemite. The park is not more than 15 miles from the park. Unfortunately it was not really what we expected. It took us several hours to come into contact with the staff. There was no shower and the toilets were basically holes in the ground. Not a place I would recommend for a family with children. In the evening a trailer did put on his loud generator and disturbed the peace of the whole camping ground. Not a place a would want to stay again.

A convenient located place when you leave Yosemite via the south gate. For a family with three children, the place to be when coming back from hiking trips. A nice rocky river adjacent of the park provides opportunities for the kids to swim. The camping is mainly gravel with not really large sites to camp but this was not really disturbing. Free Wi-Fi, a beach volleyball area and a lot of other families with children made the feast complete. The camp site is a 10 minute walk from the main street of the town where you will find several different types of restaurants. The only disadvantage is that it is really overcrowded in summertime but that goes for all the camp sites in the vicinity of Yosemite.

We came in late and were helped by the very friendly manager. The facilities are ok but it is more a camp for residents than for campers. We would stay here again but not longer than a day due to lack of facilities for children.

Very friendly staff. We stayed here because of all the positive signals we received. The park is very child friendly. We stayed here with three kids which enjoyed the pool and the swings a lot. The camping site is conveniently located and not more than a hour drive from Yosemite. It is very clean.

We planned to stay here for one night only but within a couple of hours we decided to extent our stay with two more night. It is the place to be if you want to escape from the craziness of the south part of lake Tahoe. The campground ends at the beautiful lake of fallen leaf. Stay there a few days and you will fall in love in with this camp site. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Certainly a recommendation and worth a visit.
