I just don't get the negative comments from some earlier reviewers. This is a lovely spot. Maybe it gets loud and crowded in the summer. We stayed here for two weeks, and liked it a lot. It's only about 200 yards past the end of the Galveston seawall, for a terrific bike ride into town along the seawall. Staff were friendly and helpful, each site has a concrete patio and picnic table, and we've been in many places with much less space. This is a municipal campground, and we thought it was excellent.
Nice state park in wooded area near stony beach across a nice flat biking road to nearby summer village of Birch Bay. We had a hookup site - there are only 20 so a reservation would be advisable in season. The campground was a bit dark under the big trees, but otherwise it was delightful. Large sites, reasonably private.
Primary advantage is location, 5 minute walk to Park Royal shopping malls and HQ for buses to downtown. Easy walk/bike across Lions Gate bridge (though the height made me queasy) to Stanley Park. No WiFi, improperly latching toilet doors, late-opening laundry, extra charge for pets. Not scenic, but satisfactory - except for lack of either WiFi or HiSpeed Internet access which we deemed unacceptable in this day and age. There was no Internet cafe nearby except the expensive Cactus Club near Whole Foods, 3/4 mile walk away.
Great location, adjacent to the Chester Creek bike trail which goes to the waterfront, downtown, and along the Coast. This is an older campground, and it shows signs of age. Sites are very tight, you'd have trouble in a big rig. Several permanent residents. Friendly staff, adequate bathrooms and decent laundry. You can walk to Sears Mall, or catch a bus downtown if you don't want to bike. We chose this place for its location and we were perfectly satisfied for a short stay.
This is a busy and often noisy place, reservations are a good idea. Campsites are small, picnic tables and some fire rings provided. Front row on the beach have no hookups. We had a site in the next row, slightly elevated, spectacular view over the tenters. Bathrooms were clean and kept filled with supplies including hand soap. Showers, $1, were excellent. This is an old campground and not spiffy, but the people are great and if you want electricity on the Spit, this is the place to go. We stayed here 2 weeks and were very happy.
Nice state park, restrooms perfectly acceptable if a little mature. Good showers (50 cents for 3 minutes) but only one shower in each bathroom. Good level paved sites behind dunes, easy access to beach and Fort Worden. Free WiFi at the Commons, the Park Conference Center, a short walk away, which has nice a coffee shop. Hourly bus service to Port Townsend (or you can walk, it's only 1.5 miles). Nice place, good views, great hiking up and around artillery hill to see historic batteries along the north coast.
Our experience was much different than the previous reviewer. We liked this place a lot, though it was a bit expensive - on the other hand the location is prize. We stayed here in order to pick up a relative at the Sea-Tac airport (less than 5 miles). The campground wasn't busy, we felt no security issues, nice shady sites, and the fabulous Green River bike trail goes right by the edge of the campground. While the campground is older, which explains why some of the sites are a bit short, we thought it and the staff, and the cooked breakfast, were terrific. We'd come here again in a minute.
Nice place. Gravel sites each with a concrete sitting pad and a small strip of grass between the sites. No picnic tables, and only a few trees. Excellent facilities and extremely friendly staff. We stayed here 4 nights and worked out on the treadmill in the rec hall when the weather tanked. We'd come here again.
We spent 4 nights here, it filled up on the weekend. We liked it a lot, sites are big and paved with picnic area with roof/shelter over the table, fire ring and grill. Perfectly decent bathrooms, good hot showers, easy access to trails and beach on Willard Bay Reservoir (fresh water) on the edge of the Great Salt Lake. New WiFi was just installed. We chose this place to stay because we wanted to visit the Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge. We'd come back again. The only downside to the park is that it's near I-15 and freeway noise is audible at night.
The spectacular beauty of this campground, its terrific value for money, (especially if you're a senior with Golden Age passport) terrific access to hiking trails, majestic silence and stars at night, combined with nice scenic and spacious well-separated paved sites with picnic table etc., more than make up for the lack of facilities. Decent flush toilets but no showers or hook ups. You'll definitely need a reservation though and no wonder. Generators only from 8am to 10am and 4pm to 8pm made it a little tough on us early morning coffee drinkers.
Very nice place, ideal for a vacation. Only 30 hookups, though, so make a reservation if you need one. Lots of eucalyptus trees which drop bark and leaves and may make it look messy to some people. Fabulous birding, I saw 42 species on our first day. Nice hike up Black Hill and easy bike ride into Morro Bay or to Bayside. They were having difficulty with the hot water system for showers so showers were free when we visited.
If you want to visit Monterey, this is the place to stay. We were here in the winter, it might be busy in the summer. It's basically a parking lot (the sites aren't dead level but we found it tolerable without levellers) next to a golf course, with some lovely big trees shading some of the spots. Ideally located for touring - 1/2 mile to outstanding Coastal Bik Trail, and 1 block from frequent bus service. Bathrooms could have done with more frequent attention, but since we were almost the only people there we didn't complain. Quite a bit of noise from planes to-ing and fro-ing the airport, which is close by.
This park has location, location, and location if you want to visit the San Francisco area. You can walk to the Larkspur ferry or take a bus (40 minutes) to the city's downtown. Great laundry, fine bathrooms. An added plus is the excellent network of biking/hiking trails in the area. Also, the park is adjacent to the Corte Madera ecological reserve (marsh) which had fabulous birding when we visited. Staff very friendly, new office under construction - due in the spring along with WiFi. Downside is it's basically a parking lot and adjacent to the freeway, so there's lots of traffic noise.
About the only good thing about this park was its location - right in Port Angeles, letting you walk to everything. A distinct advantage. However, the park is basically a parking lot with mostly seasonal occupants, and pretty rundown. The bathrooms were a disaster.
Great place, nice warm bath house. Very scenic across harbour to Victoria or at the marina and floating houses. Easy walk to shopping center in Esquimalt, terrific biking on Galloping Goose trail. Terrific access to Victoria by waterfront trail (2+ miles, very scenic) or frequent bus service. Restaurant on the premises, very friendly staff. WiFi free and adequate, with occasional interruptions.
Great campground, very nice ambience and very friendly staff. Very well kept. The groundsman, will wash your RV on site for you - he did an excellent job on our filthy motorhome. Terrific bathrooms and laundry room. Bus #12 to Portland very convenient.
This is very convenient to downtown Sequim. The park is new and very manicured. The spaces are small and close together, though there is a grass strip between each one. The management reserves the right to refuse conversions and RVs that are not well maintained.
Brand new restrooms and showers were terrific. New laundry room, also. It was chilly while we were there, but the restrooms maintained a very comfortable 68 degrees. Waterfront sites are fabulous, though you might not want to be on the south side in a winter storm. Wonderful place, extremely friendly staff. Easy walk to town and shuttle bus stop right at the entrance. This is one of our favorite places. WiFi was good, choice of two providers - both a bit expensive.
