“Partial hookups and boondocking overlooking a gorgeous lake”

Reviewed May 31, 2016

Overall Rating

All in all, we enjoyed our stay here. Topaz Lake is beautiful, and it's a great place to go boating or fishing. There's a large rock outcropping that campers can climb from the park and get a bird's eye view of the lake with the mountains beyond -- very picturesque.

There is a 2-RV dump station (free for campers) that has easy access, and the place is very quiet, at least in the off-season. There were days we were the only people there in April.

We had 3 minor complaints:

  1. Partial hookups (water and electric) are $35/night, and boondocking is $25/night. It seems like a steep cost.

  2. The sites are shallow. We had to park our towed car to the side at a weird angle to make room for our 32' motorhome.

  3. The road the park is on, Topaz Park Road, descends narrowly and steeply from Route 395. Take it very slow, and possibly even downshift to go easy on your brakes. The speed limit is only 25, and we found it hard to stay within that limit.

“Waterfront sites with great views of the mountains. Empty in Jan but could be a lot busier in summer!”

Reviewed Jan 25, 2015

Overall Rating

Stopped here after crossing the Sierras from a South Lake Tahoe. The place was absolutely empty at the end of January but this year at least, the temps are really moderate (60's in the day, 40's at night). We had our pick of waterfront sites with great views of the mountains. My guess is this place is pretty packed during the rest of the year.

We had a dilemma on our hands. We were currently in Desert Hot Springs, California, and we knew that we wanted to head to the Oregon coast.Our first inclination was to check out places like...
