This campground offers a peaceful retreat with electric and water hookups at many sites, making it a comfortable spot for both tent and RV campers. The sites are spacious and clean, though they can be a bit close to each other. However, end sites provide a bit more privacy.

    The park itself is a haven for nature lovers. The trails are perfect for a leisurely hike, and dogs are welcome to join you. The campground is also a great base for exploring the surrounding area, especially if you're into rockhounding or local history. The views are stunning, with mountains and desert landscapes providing a picturesque backdrop.

    One of the standout features here is the cleanliness and quality of the facilities. The bathrooms are well-maintained, and the showers, which require a quarter for four minutes, offer good water pressure and privacy. There's also a little free library for those who enjoy a good book by the campfire, and firewood is available for a donation.

    Families will appreciate the shaded park area, complete with a playground and a wading pool for the kids. The picnic areas are perfect for a relaxing meal under the trees. For those who enjoy stargazing, the lack of city lights makes for an incredible night sky.

    While cell service can be spotty, especially for T-Mobile users, the campground does offer WiFi for a fee. Just be prepared for a bit of a digital detox. Overall, Kershaw-Ryan State Park is a fantastic spot for a quiet, scenic camping experience with plenty of amenities to keep you comfortable.
