“Quiet Natural Setting”

Reviewed Feb 14, 2015

Overall Rating

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.
