A Quiet Gem

This was our first visit and we were impressed. The campground is clean and quiet. No generators are allowed which isn’t an issue since there are full hookups at all 12 RV sites. All sites seemed relatively level. We stayed in site #5. Sites #1-4 back up to the Towhee Trail , so expect hikers to pass by close behind you. The better sites are #5-12 with #11 and #12 being the best. Not all sites were open during our visit likely due to the pandemic.

As someone else mentioned, there is a $2 per day dog fee that caught us off guard. I’m sure it must mention it on the website as it’s mentioned in the brochures they hand you when you check in. They’ll have you pay at the kiosk so be prepared.

There are plenty of easily accessible hiking and biking trails in the area. While you can get down to the lake easily, there’s no swimming for either dogs or humans. Keep in mind that if you walk the single track trails with your dogs, you’ll be spending some quality time with them later picking off ticks. Be aware of the poison oak as well.

Not sure what this campground is like during peak season, but it was a great little getaway for us during the first week of March. We’ll be back.
