Three perfect days at the coast

Got there on a Monday morning. The grounds were mostly empty So it was very easy to claim a spot. We stayed until Wednesday afternoon. A few people came, a few people left in that time but, Everyone we ran into was very friendly. It’s dry camping so no running water or flushing toilets but if what…

Hidden Gem

This place was a true hidden gem. I didn't understand why there were cabins available when usually everything in California is booked up months in advance!

This park I think only has rustic cabins, no tent/RV sites. We booked through hipcamp. They are all spaced out very nicely, with some…

Great family time

Great lake to go camping with a family. Had great swimming and a nice little hiking trail. There are only a few spots so it makes it nice. Hotter during the summer months. Would be nice to camp either spring or fall.

Small campground with beach acesss

I’ve been coming to this campground as a kid for many years and still enjoy this place. A small campground with beach access, hot coin operated showers and clean restrooms. A quick trail takes you to the small town drag of a grocery store, coffee shop, laundry mat and two restaurants.

Nearby swimming hole

Average pay site with pit toilets and picnic tables. 5 min walk to swimming hole under overpass on main road, across from country corner store with food, beer and supplies.

Perched on the edge of Stony Creek

If you drive past all the OHV-filled camps, you’ll eventually get to this little gem. No water or trash (though you have both at the sites back down the road), but the location is so perfect - you can hear the creek rushing, and the big groups are too far away to be bothersome. There’s limited…

Secluded, very basic, lovely

A long way down a dirt road to arrive. Fire pits + bbq grill + picnic table on each of the six or so sites, and a vault toilet at either end of the camp. I went in a Friday night in April and there was only one other couple there.

Beautiful location

Excellent park for a mid week stay. There were lots of vacant spaces and weather was fabulous. We stayed in site 59 and will definitely return. View of the lake was great and watching the bass tournament was fun. Dry camping only but lots of fresh water hydrants, clean bathrooms and coin operated…

Beautiful place

First time staying in a private campground. After a month on the road with pretty much no service, WiFi is great to watch a movie. Paid $50 a night with dog. Sites are extremely close together, hopefully your neighbors are cool, ours were. Coin operated showers. On a nice wind protected beach.…

Great campsite off the beaten path

Stayed here for 3 nights with our 2 toddlers and our dog. Lots of shade and some space between campsites. Only the lower loop of sites was open when we stayed here early April. Very dog and kid friendly. There's an easy trail that loops around the lake that's just over a mile long and a place…

Our site and tent were burglarized

Our site and tent were burglarized while we were gone for part of a day. They stole all cooking equipment since it was closest to the car then they started on the tent. Sleeping bag and clothes are completely gone. The only saving thing was they were scared off by some unknown reason, probably a…

Beautiful Spot Along the River

This spot was a great little find. There is a trail from the campground to the park and beach area which is nice for a stroll. The campground is amongst the trees along the river. I would recommend the spots along the river over those on the inner side. Make sure to get a reservation in advance as…

Heaven can wait.

I give a four star only cause the showers were pure evil. One was like pin needles and hurt very bad and the other one was only luke warm. The air draft was 100% blowing and super cold. Freezing from Hypothermia in a shower. Who would have thought? The Beach was Gorgeous, really close and easy…
