Beautiful small campground in a lush forest. There are several beautiful trails in the park's redwood forest. The nearby Bale Grist Mill State Historic Park is very interesting too with guided tours during weekends. A great place to camp and enjoy wine country. Restrooms and showers are basic but there's plenty of hot water. Gravel sites require leveling.
Small and beautiful park with an amazing private beach. We camped there during the off-season, a few weeks before they closed for the season and it was nice and quiet. Price shown here reflects off-season and regular price is $45 per night. The place was nice and clean. Showers and restrooms looked new/renovated and were in great shape.However, hot water was inconsistent. Please note the showers are coin operated and coins can only be bought at the general store that closes on 4:30pm everyday, so you need to plan ahead. Wi-Fi is available but expensive, something like $5 for 2 hours or $7-$8 for the day. We will definitely come again, though from reading other reviews I understand that if you want to come during the summer you have to book many months in advance
We camped here during Labor Day weekend. Practically all campgrounds around Tahoe were full and this one was one of the few parks that had some sites available about two weeks in advance. By the time we checked in, pretty much all the >400 sites were taken. The place is huge, and was quite crowded, though site spacing is decent. There's lots of shade too. My kids loved the playground, though it is run down and like the rest of the park, in immediate need of renovation. The "heated" pool was very cold. Staff was mostly friendly. The restrooms and showers are very run down and in desperate need of renovation. Staff did not keep up with the pressure of heavy usage, and so hot water was not available at the Camp A showers. Restrooms were dirty at times, and occasionally ran out of all supplies (toilet paper, toilet seat covers, paper towels, etc.). You'd expect more when paying the high season rate of $61 (including $3 "resort fee"). Overall, we're glad we found that spot and had a great time hiking and biking around the lake. But this will not be our first choice next time in Tahoe.
Very nice, upscale resort. The pool is great and the restrooms and showers are super clean. Bear in mind it's right next to I-5 so noise is significant, especially when sleeping in a tent trailer. Also, the trees are very young; hence, there's no shade. And when temperatures are over 100F, it's an adventure.
Beautiful campground inside this amazing national park. Sites are well spaced surrounded by trees. As mentioned by others, there is only a handful of electrical sites - all in loop F - and they are allocated on a first come first serve basis. Restrooms and showers (coin operated) near the camp store were nice and clean.
Be aware that they close at 9pm. There is a couple of free showers 24/7 at loop F too, though you may need to wait. Water spigots throughout the campground don't have threading to screw in a hose so you will need to fill tanks the hard way. There's also no place to wash the dishes, other than at the same spigots using cold water.
We camped there for 4 nights because it's a great location for a base camp to explore the Redwoods National and State Parks, the pacific coast, Patrick's Point State Park, etc. We were generally pleased with the park. It is clean, well-maintained, and has a nice playground for the kids. On the downside: (a). there was some road noise from highway 101, though it wasn't too bad. (b). people not far from us who camped in a tent had got a visit by a bear one night though no major harm was done. (c). the swimming pool is really small so we didn't even try it. (d). this family run business is at times a little bit disorganized.
One of the most beautiful, spacious, cleanest and best-maintained RV parks I've ever been to. We camped in loop E that does not offer "preferred" river-edge sites, but is ideal for kids since they could ride their bikes and scooters with no fear of any pass-through traffic. The space between the sites is huge and they are all nicely shaded by huge pine trees.We camped there for 3 nights as a base camp for hiking in the beatiful Lakes Basin. I only wish they had more facilites for kids, like a pool and/or a playground. Staff was nice and friendly. We'll definitely go there again.
Well-maintained park with very clean restrooms and showers. Family-friendly with a nice playground, mini-golf, pool (was closed for the season) and more. The only drawback is noise from nearby I-50, so if you're sensitive to it you should ask to get a site as far away from the highway as possible.
We camped there looking for a decent RV park near Burney Falls, which was our hiking destination. Other than that, the location is not really close to many other family hiking attractions. Owner is very friendly. Showers and toilets looked brand new and were spotless. Swimming pool was too cold to use and gravel roads are not suitable for young kids to cycle. So all in all, not as family-friendly as we hoped it would be. It seems most/all sites have only partial shade. In addition, we had way too many bees and other bugs flying around, which compromised our stay. All in all, a decent RV park and we may camp here again for 1-2 nights next time we're in the area.
This nice and friendly park, is surrounded by tall pine trees. There is a nice fish pond right next to the sites - I walked around it several times with my two preschoolers. Showers and restrooms are very basic but clean. Two showers+restroom buildings exist, one near the main office and one more remote, close to the "dry camping" (i.e. water and electricity but no sewage) area. The ones next to the office are fine. The other one is very old and has no hot water. We had a good time and will be happy to come again.
We camped here for 3 nights in late August. Beautiful campground with lots of trees, fire rings, friendly and helpful staff. Our kids rode their bikes on and on. Restrooms and showers were clean. The showers are a bit tricky: you pay 4 quarters and a 3 minutes shower, and on occasion the hot water started only about 2 minutes or later. So make sure to bring extra quarters. No hookups. Water needs to be taken from fountains spread throughout the camp. All in all: highly recommended for people wanting to explore this amazing park and who don't mind roughing it. Don't miss renting a kayak on the lake, enjoying amazing views of Lassen Peak.
Nice looking park: wide sites, trees. Friendly staff. Our kids loved the playground. The "heated" pool was too cold to bath in. Some of us found it hard to sleep due to train noise - the camp is right next to the railroad and the train honks really loud when it passes through the city. And also, we camped during Labor day weekend which was very busy, and the toilets and showers were always too crowded, occasionally disgustingly dirty and poorly maintained. The folks at KOA clearly did not build enough toilets and showers and more importantly, did not adjust the frequency of cleaning to the level of use during a very crowded holiday weekend
