A favorite park of ours, even though no hookups. Always clean (pay) showers, and you can normally feel comfortable letting children (of appropriate ages) make friends with other camping kids and playing on the rocks, etc. Some sites are back-ins and they are up against a row of trees, and if you're on the bay side, that row is a bit more protected than pull-throughs. Sites are paved, picnic tables on grass (yep, weeds, I'm sure) and fire pit with partial rack. Good place to camp with several families. Always nice to watch the activity in the harbor. Have camped here in every month of the year and some are more quiet than others - have never been there on a weekend when there wasn't another camper.

Have stayed in this park several times in last few years. Very well run. Park is sloped and graveled sites are easy to get in to. Some (if not all) are divided by "trellis" fence for a bit more privacy. Park is surrounded by trees that serve as a bit of a wind break, so more protected park than Porto Bodega, Westside, or Doran (I've stayed at all). They also have "clubhouse rooms" if you've got a crowd or club and need them. Also, a laundry room, which I haven't used. A small gravel dog run for them to do their business. There is also a grassy area without hookups for overflow. BBRVP is next door to the community center and also abuts the Bodega Dunes State Park and campground. Lots of opportunities to take walks.

Enjoyed the campground - clean pool and it was well occupied in early evening 1st night we were there. Other sport areas, too, plus the petting zoo, all of which my grandson took advantage of. Have a small store (Popsicle time) and a deli which we didn't try. Activities like marshmallow roast/hay rides/line dancing, but too early for us this trip as we weren't back from Yosemite in time on 2 of the nights we were there. Is about 22 mi from Big Oak Flat gate to Yosemite, which was probably about a 25 minute drive, which we really enjoyed both days. Each site also has a light on top of the power stands - most worked. The sites are terraced and they do have nice tent sites, too. Most sites seemed accessible by most rigs. Bathrooms clean enough and well lit (some stains in fiberglass showers) to be comfortable using. They also have cabins and yurts, which my daughter and son-in-law peeked in and said were nice, and they have a nice "training" course on the trail which they explored. Reasonable rates. Would definitely stay there again. Very nice people both as staff and guests. They even led several rigs in after dark (and probably after their work shift would have required it). We had full hookups, but they also have some with just electric and water. No cell service (but the entire area is sporadic and I was told in town that Verizon seemed to work best). Used the Wi-Fi a couple of times and it was easy and worked pretty well, but I was using at off-peak hours. I felt the roads were well marked, so unless they've changed the signs since someone else posted in July, I'm not sure what they are talking about. Also, you probably won't see much green grass/weeds, etc., unless you are there in spring/late fall/winter because there just isn't much water. Considering the sites in the area we were in were all dirt, you might not want to stay there in really rainy weather - I didn't notice any gravel or paved sites, but that might just be me. Very pleasant and relaxing park.
