Overall Rating

Campo Alto is a small campground with 17 individual and 2 group sites with an 8 mile 2 lane route from the main road up to flat mountain top. Roads entirely paved with mostly gravel unlevel parking near sites. Easily traveled by Class B rigs or trailers if enough power for steep inclines. Most sites can handle unlimited length but may not get large rigs leveled. My 30ft class C was fine. No utilities. Had 2 clean lit vault toilet buildings of 2 stalls. Go to my same review on either Google Maps or Dyrt since it was easier to load pictures of each site.

Two objections discussed with service personnel. An arrow painted at end of road up at stop sign was demonstrated one way road. It was on the wrong spot, so ignore since most of the sites are to the right. The other serious issue was the large population of cut dead trees laying on the mountain top. A service came up 2 years ago to thin the area but didn’t bother to pick up logs leaving beetles and potential fire more fuel to consume and spread. A disaster waiting for either problem. (Had to help clear private property of down trees since city told us the beetle would spread further.)

Was able to get a few text messages out randomly via Verizon, but no voice service.

With senior pass at recreation.gov was half price for $48 including service fee for 2 nights.

Has 17 individual sites with 2 group sites on end of road. No utilities at all and no trash containers. It is a 2 lane wide road up and you need to watch for debris from hillside occasionally. New posts placed limiting car to be closer to a few campsites, but no walk more than 30 feet at S2 & S3 for instance. On campsite 4, I drove near site due to lack of level street parking for rig. They need to add entrance for parking.
