So nice, stayed an extra day!

Very large park. Showed up on Wednesday, and was assigned a spot in loop 700 up on a hill in the center of a ring of trailers, past a lot of full-timers. Cable does not work. No internet. 2 bars LTE on T-Mobile. We stayed in loop 700 - very nice, new and well-maintained area with mature trees and lovely fall colors. It appears locals keep their rigs here and use the area as vacation homes… outer ring of area had unoccupied trailers, but they were well kept and cute. Stayed over Thursday night as well. Laundromat with 5 washers/dryers. Coin machine empty, but they had change at check-in building. They have showers, but we didn’t check them out. Peaceful park.

Something for everyone

This park has a sad history and is probably haunted, but it’s got ocean bay views, fishing, and historical recreations to visit. The campground is really nice, with water and sewer connections on the tulip loop. We used the web site to reserve our site ahead of time, and got a really sweet spot! There are a few mosquitoes, so don’t forget your spray. COVID-19 precautions have closed everything indoors, like the little museum, nature center, play ground and camp store.

Want to camp in an amusement park?

This place has staff that doesn’t seem interested in renting spaces or assisting customers. Much has closed because of COVID-19, and apparently this camp ground is subsidized. It is chocked full of gnomes and other overly cute plywood cutouts. Surprised they don’t just go ahead and add a tilt-a-whirl!

Comfortable Campsites

Enjoyed a two night stay during COVID era. Many parks closed, believe this state park had restrictions on how many campers could stay overnight. We reserved 2 night online, and arrived just as the friendly ranger was closing for the day. Good location; easy to find off of freeway. Wooded RV sites with paved pads. Several areas were closed. Dam area under construction. Overall, a very relaxing, pleasant experience. Very quiet. Boat rentals appeared to be closed, and small lake looked a tad stagnant and overgrown with aquatic plants. Wouldn’t plan on fishing in “stocked lake.” No collecting firewood; charcoal fires only within ring. Comical amount of paperwork stuck by rangers/park hosts to our van the first morning.
