“Park Is Nice, Campground So So”

Reviewed Jun 25, 2017

Overall Rating

This campground is kind of an expensive disorganized free-for-all. We checked in early and I'm glad we did. The entry station area is a confusing mess with the store, day-use parking etc all in the same place. There is only one lane for entry so be prepared to wait. The kiosk attendant was very nice but we were asked to pull forward wi... more

“Sorry, Cali....not a fan”

Reviewed Aug 25, 2016

Overall Rating

Temps in the mid-90s probably didn't help, but we were definitely not impressed with this California State Park, especially at $35 night without hookups. The yellow jackets caused a buzz and the campsite was littered. When checking in we were told how busy the park has been and that a site just opened up. The park employee wasn't certa... more

There are large pine trees that create good shade at most sites.There are two loops of sites, rim and pioneer. I prefer the rim sites although they are ol... more

“Beautiful clean park”

Reviewed May 31, 2015

Overall Rating

The falls and the hikes around this area are fantastic, there were few people around and very quiet. In typical Cali fashion it is very expensive for only water hookup. Bathrooms were decent and showers were available.

“Good size sites, beautiful falls, clean park”

Reviewed May 21, 2015

Overall Rating

We were only able to stay 1 night here but I enjoyed it very much. The falls are really spectacular. There is no Verizon service here. We stayed in a "pull thru", I think it was number 11. While technically a pull thru you really needed to back in to use the spot. Not that big of a deal for us but know that going into it. There are ... more
