Beside hwy 99, easy to reach, paved road, only cash, no cards, sites are not too bog but as we were the only rv we fit into no 17 very well, in fact we occupied no 15 and 17 with our 25 ft rig with view on an open trash container (what for the bear foodstorage?)
Shower ( cannot lock the door) needs token (75 c for 3 min), not clean and a bit rotten, only 1 coathook, no bench drinking water yes but no dump

“Quiet Natural Setting”

This park is only a short distance off of busy Hwy 99, but is a world apart. Located on the banks of the Merced River the park has an abundance of large oak and sycamore trees. We stayed here on 2/13/2015, and only one other camper showed up. No rangers or host were on site. The grass needed to be mowed, the campsites raked, and the bathrooms and showers repaired. But, we loved the quiet setting and the abundance of wildlife, birds, squirrels, fish and coyotes. We would definitely return. Twenty camping sites, no hook-ups, & no dump station.
