Simple and Basic

A 5 mile hike from the Bear Valley Trailhead leading to a small campground with 12 sites.  We stayed at #9.  Potable water and vault toilets are available, with each site also having a picnic table, charcoal barbecues and bear boxes.  Wood fires are not permitted.  A stream runs beside the…

Great family camping

Campsites are decently spaced for the type of campground. Awesome river access, and a short drive to restaurants or the beach. Clean bathrooms and a ton of amenities. The dog parks were clutch, since my dog needs to run. Had some neighbors who were really loud really late and Casini staff were all…

Picture Perfect

Got to Ocean Cove mid week and was able to snag a spot on the bluff overlooking the cove. Clean sites with picnic tables and fire pits. $30 cash or $35 cc. No amenities. I saw Porta potties but didn’t use them. No ATT service. Although went for a walk down on the rocks south of the camp and my…

Fun for crabbing

We went here to try crabbing for the first time. The site is very nice and all spots are walking distance to the coastline beaches. The campsite we were able secure was in the vehicle meadow area. Each spot has enough room, but each spot is right on top of the other. If you don’t have friendly…

Not bad

This is a big campground. The spaces are nice and big. You can camp on grass, gravel and cement whichever you prefer. Weather was good. Overcast in the morning and sunny in the afternoon. Nice big beach you can take dogs on.

Beautiful Spot on the Sonoma Coast.

In the coastal town of Bodega Bay California is a state/regional beach called Doran Beach. It is a beautiful place to go for a day trip or for overnight camping trips. Doran's campground is right on the beach with the bay on both sides of the road. There are several areas for RV's and also for tent…

My new favorite place!

We stayed here in Aug after canceling a Tahoe trip due to smoke. We were not disappointed! Such an amazing location! We stayed in the Meadow View sites cause most of them were available but after walking through the campground that's where I would go back. The sites are quite large which was really…

Nice private campground, $35 a night or $30 if you pay cash. Private beach/boat ramp and path leading to the state park and trails along the bluffs. Not a lot of privacy between sites. Porta Potty’s and the showers were outdoor stalls with no roof, but water got hot fast, $2 in quarters for 5 mins.…

Don’t waste family time here

This was a place my dad took me every year! Lots of great memories were made! Snipe hunting in the dunes, crabbing from the dock…Even as a younger adult(20-25) I made great memories introducing my friends to this great camping spot by the beach. Recently, taking my family, was a huge…

Perfect tent site for the night

Traveling north from the Bay Area, we used the Dyrt app to find a suitable place to pitch a tent and stay the night on our way north to the redwoods. Online reservation was so easy, drove right to the campsite, pitched our tent just about an hour before dark giving the kids enough time to find some…

Family oriented campground

Spent 4 days here with my 2 kids (6&8), and had a good time. The campground is a good size, and they really pack them in there. Some spots aren't worth the price they're asking, but some are (questionable). Be sure to do your research using their website and looking at the photos of the…

One of the best family campgrounds

A few Rental activities for the River. Also has a store that pretty much has everything you’ll need.…

Not for me

I like to camp further away from neighbors. Although the huge park has “premium” sites where you are farther apart, even those are too close for my comfort. I literary can see and talk to my neighbor with both of us inside our trailer. Aside from that, the kids enjoyed the sand dunes a lot. There’s…
