“Historical and relaxing.”

Reviewed Mar 30, 2017

Overall Rating

Allensworth is a small campground with 15 available campsites, most were vacant during our stay. The park is the only California town founded by African Americans and it has been nicely restored! We enjoyed a leisurely walk around the buildings listening to the self guided tour on our cell phones. While walking we saw several bunnies, squirrels, many birds as well as a American Kiestrel! In addition to the historic portion of the park there is the remoteness to it which allows one to sit back, enjoy the scenery and relax! There are trains that pass by, however that did not disturb us in the least! We enjoyed beautiful sunsets, a very pleasant staff (Ranger) and a nice variety of wild life, there was even a lone coyote that strolled across the meadow. The sites are dry site with no hook ups (water avail), but there are clean bathrooms and showers. We originally had planned to stay for one day, however we enjoyed it so much we stayed for three!

“Camp in history”

Reviewed Jan 07, 2016

Overall Rating

This interesting historic state park has a little camping with 15 spots. We did not make a reservation, and were the first ones to make our pick. Later in the afternoon, one other camper showed up. We learned from the ranger the next day, it hardly ever fills up. There are no hookups, but water is available. We did not try the shower, but it was promised to be hot.
The campground is in agricultural surroundings, with a very slight manure smell. Since we could access the state park at night, we took some night shots of the buildings. And then the owls come out, too! Lots of birds and other little creatures to see.

The trains go by, but are not bothersome, we did not hear them at night. There is a dump station at the back of the campground.
