Beautiful setting, but not much to offer for RV

Beautiful setting, most sites are under the redwoods. We did see elk in areas nearby, but not in the campground. We were there in a small travel trailer. There was no place to fill with water (bring your water bandit). And there is no dump station, the one at Patrick’s Point State Park is also closed. We were told to go to Emerald Forest RV to dump for $20 if you are in an RV you may want to consider a private RV Park for the price

A quiet Saturday at Clear Lake State Park

Why do people in state parks think everyone in the campground wants to hear their music. This is the second day of this! And they are old farts! I am done with best of the 80’s. I don’t know if I can wait til 10pm for rangers to enforce quiet time.

Been there, done that!

Why do people pay $80+reservation fee to camp here? True, it is June the weather is typical June gloom, unable to see Catalina and the oil islands are not much of a view. I tried a hike at the Bolsa Chica Reserve, but when the police helicopter started flying above me, I decided to go back. We came here because we had business in the area and were able to pickup some cancellations for a few nights so we did not have to do the 405 commute. So that is one positive. Also, sites do have water and electricity. Negatives are:

  1. Cost $80/night plus reservation fees.
  2. Sites are very close together
  3. No table or fire ring at your site (May bring your own or use large ring on the beach) was too windy while we were here, anyway.
  4. Right on PCH, highway noise 5.premium sites are right on the bike path, no fence. parents watch your children closely! Not my idea of beach camping. Also, we avoid the 405 anyway, just saved ourselves some commute time by staying here.
Nice RV park for over night

Nice RV park with level pads, a restaurant, and a pool. Also across the street from camping world. Only con is parking is on DG rather than cement and in the morning it is muddy. Paid $49.50

Is anyone there?

I tried contacting this place for two days to check availability on a trip we were taking to Northern California. No one answered the phone so I left messages. No one ever returned my calls. I tried using the website contact information but it was not operating correctly and I was able to even send an email. I believe they had trouble with flooding a couple years ago when we tried contacting them so I figured maybe they are no longer in business? We found another place to stay, I’m glad because Lindy’s is away from the 99 and away from train tracks but still only 80 miles from Yosemite Village.

Peaceful stop on the way to Yosemite

We were Looking for a place to stop on the way to Yosemite. We tried 2 other campgrounds with NO response, by phone or email. We decided to try calling Lindy‘s Landing and Campground to see if there was an availability. They answer the phone! She told us there were plenty of sites.The staff are friendly and helpful. There are not a lot of campers here, and it is quiet and peaceful. It is 81 miles from here to Yosemite Village. Hope to get an early start so we can beat the line going into the park. Hidden gem in the Spring. Happy we found this park. $35.00 for full hookups. No good Sam or auto club discount. But still a better price than most private campgrounds
