Big Trees Everywhere!

Clean, quiet campground nestled in the big trees. Friendly staff and a quick drive into the Santa Cruz beach communities.

Great for family camping

We camp with a minivan and two small children. The trees are thick and tall. The site and bathroom are clean. There are many short and easy trails.

There is a slight road noise before dark and in the morning but otherwise it is very quiet.

Great for Families

We have been here a few times and can’t wait to go back, any time of the year! We have a two and a half year old and it’s perfect for us in a 28’ fifth wheel. Paved roads for bikes, huge playground, nice store, warm pool. It’s perfect for families. I wouldn’t recommend this for campers who like…

Large and well-maintained with excellent nearby hiking

Great campground, stayed 4 nights in December. Highlights include sunrise views over the lake and hills with rolling fog, wild turkeys everywhere, smell of eucalyptus, warm showers, and scores of dedicated staff who genuinely care about this place. Sites are also nicely-spaced apart. (Though this…

A fun campsite

It’s a cozy place with boat rentals! Plenty of shade and bathrooms available. Only reason got 4 star is the constant blue-green algae, making the water unavailable for swimming. Regardless of that, you can still fish and go on boat rides.

A close and easy spot for Bay Area campers

This is a great spot for people looking to get away and camp but not trying to drive for 3-4 hours to do so.

Made a reservation night-of on a Friday, wasn’t going to make it there before sunset, so I called and they gave me a gate code in case the gate is closed by the time we arrived.

There’s 25…

Nice campsites, good location!

Camped with electricity and water, situated on a bluff near the ocean. Easy walking distance to the water, nice roomy campsites with fire rings and tables. Not too close to other campers.

Delectable Del Valle

What a find! This hidden gem hides behind the vineyard crested mountain range just due south of Livermore. Once you get off the 680/580 highways, you'll be immediately swept into a different wind-strewn, rocky landscape that you'll have to wind around several bends on some decent inclined…

Delightful beach camping

Absolutely wonderful spot to camp! Just a quick walk down the hill to the beach (there are stairs, so can’t pull a wagon as a heads up). Beach wasn’t busy and the waves aren’t too big.

Epic sunset views. Most campsites are quite big. Some trees and shade too. Super clean bathrooms.

Great easy camping

Cozy clean campsites easy to navigate. Valley view point was pretty nice will make a good painting spot next time. Bathrooms were clean but didn’t use the showers, assumed they worked just as well. Archery ranged looked like a great trail I’ll have to bring my bow next time.

Nice quiet place

Nice big campsites, well spaced between neighbors. Very open with trees shading most spots Beautiful birds and tons of turkeys, a few deer too. Very dry while we were here. We didn’t go to the lake as this was just a travel stay for us.
