Stayed at this campground in early fall when temperatures started to drop. Because of this I think it was easy for us to not make any reservations ahead of time. It's a 4 minute walk to the beach, perfect if you're staying in the area for surfing.
Showers and bathrooms were clean and well maintained; camp hosts are very attentive to their campground. We ran into an issue where our car battery died and they had jumper cables for us to use.
While you're in the area, I would suggest hiking the sand dunes, surfing, or checking out the coffee shop/Pelican Pub nearby(all within a 5 minute walk!)
If you like bunnies, I highly recommend staying here. They roam around the campsite and I counted 47 during our two night stay there. Dogs are allowed with an additional fee.
We selected this campsite due to its proximity to Paulina Lake. We brought SUP boards and only had to make a 7 minute drive before we got to the boat dock. It was also an easy drive back into town in case we needed something.
My only advice is to try to pick a campsite close to the river. The terrain is a little more flat around the river and you'll be able to listen to the water as you fall asleep. We stayed further away and I found myself sliding a little during the night.
Be sure to bring your own water to this campsite, there isn't potable water here!
