It is a place when you need a place. Many families live here full time, low income, victims of foreclosure and the bad economy. It has all the hookups water, utilities everything you need to take care of you and yours. Nothing fancy but it works. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The owners are friendly and helped us back into our site located between two rusting ancient storage trailers. That is the only positive thing at this campground. It is really a place where people live, not for "campers" or overnight stays. It is filthy dirty. There is junk everywhere. We were placed in a site next to a huge mercury lamp that shown all night. The showers were so awful I wouldn't bathe my dogs in them. We arrived in the dark and left first thing in the morning. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

We called in advance and we were greeted with friendly young lady. She asked us about our rig and explained that there had been several people who drove in past the sign saying that there was no room for big rigs. We did not have that. They explained that they get very few over nighters, we enjoyed out stay (especially the price). Managers had a big Bonfire and the eclectic group of Berkeley types were a joy and it was a must experience night. Thank you for having our site number ready on the door and everything waiting for us. Being Willets, we were grateful to have such a wonderful inexpensive park with great heated bathrooms We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We called and questioned the bad reviews this park had, and was assured that things had changed. Bad choice, but you never know! Do not stay here EVER if you have a BIG rig! It was off of Hwy 101 and hard to get into with a narrow bridge at the entrance. (FIRST CLUE) Then we were greeted by the manager who was a little cocky to put it mildly, "Move your coaches so our regulars can get by." But there was no place to move 2 forty-foot rigs with cars in tow, or even turn around. (SECOND CLUE) Then he told us we would have to unhitch even if we wanted to turn around and leave. (YIKES) Might as well stay if we have to unhitch. So finally, we found 2 back in sites, (they said they had pull throughs for us, they didn't) that would fit us and we set up. Park has thick woods and a lot of regulars in travel trailers from the 60's. What a junky park, but we all agreed it that it was only for one night. So after a night of restless sleep (because the regulars were up BBQ'ing around midnight) we headed out carefully. Pulling back on to Hwy 101 was just as dangerous as pulling in. Oh, and even with a Passport America discount, this was still 23 dollars a night! Rip off. We camped here in a Motorhome.
DO NOT STAY HERE YET! I have given this park a "2" which is generous only because there is a new manager and she just started the day before. This park is a MESS. Garbage everywhere. The park is 90% permanent residents. Husband was actually asked whether he had any "smoke". We made the mistake of driving up to the top of the park to turn around and found about 50 "dead" rigs. Horrible mess. The park is gated, but I think you are less safe with the residents than you would be with others. Gate does not allow you to change your mind as it is right off the 101. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I made reservations at this park after reading that the rates at the local KOA were too high. We did not pay in advance (thank goodness!) and when we arrived, the office was closed. There was a note on the door as to which campsite was ours. We drove in and felt like we had found a leftover commune from the 60's. Most everyone was living here full time, including the people staying in their tents. As we started to back into our spot, my husband and I noticed the shirtless man coming out of the trailer next to ours with a long beard smoking a joint, and we both said, "Let's get out of here!" I wouldn't have spent any amount at this KOA right then! We didn't actually stay, nor would I recommend this campground to anyone. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
