A nice campground, but...

I was looking for a campsite where we could actually book a reservation and since most places were booked and only offering first-come-first-serve spots, I reserved this one. The pluses:

- Nice location, far away from cities, right in the forest. 

- Large campground

- Lots of open space…

Secret tunnel under the road

First come first serve spaces available on a Saturday afternoon. Not too many people. Pretty quiet. Beautiful, well kept spaces. Bathrooms weren’t very clean and did not have a sink or shower- toilets did flush though. Nice walk through a secret tunnel out of the park to a little river nearby.…

Great Campsite with access to SB, Cachuma Lake, and hiking

Reserved this campsite about 1 month in advance on Reserve America.  11 total sites in this camp and all filled up with reservations on a weekend.  Each campsite is very nice with shade under large oak trees, fire pits, bbq, and nearby trash and water.  Bathrooms were clean.  Camp host very nice.
