“Quiet relaxed campground. Very easy access”

Reviewed Jan 08, 2018

Overall Rating

Spent a week here. The campground has dirt roads and dirt pads. There was very little traffic, in fact, there were only 3 other campers over the course of 7 days. The park also functions as a staging area for horse trails as well as a parking spot for the PCT. As a result, there are some decent, easy hiking trails.

It's $14/night, and you're not getting much, but I figured it's worth it for the water supply and ease of access to the campground. They also have a $5/day vehicle fee, but we were exempt thanks to the 4th grader in our family. (4th graders get a free pass to all national parks/forests!)

Sites were clean. There's a dumpster near the entrance to the camping loops. Pit toilets weren't the nicest but got the job done.

Access is right off old CA-80, which runs parallel with I-8. The highway is relatively close, but the highway noise was barely noticeable.

Not a very strong signal from T-mobile, but incredible speeds. I'm currently getting 54 Mbps down and 11 Mbps upload speeds. We've learned that signal strength and speed aren't necessarily related. When I get a phone call my speed drops to 2g speeds, but then when I'm done it's right back up to the LTE speeds noted above.
