"Disappointing compared to other Maricopa parks"

We've stayed here before, so we were surprised to see how it's changed over the past two years. Current next door neighbor in site #69 has 6 large pit bulls in a medium size tent. She yells at them constantly. I asked park host what the policy... Read more

"Bucolic off-season beach camping"

The signs at Bermuda Flats actually divert campers to the North and South Horse Pasture areas. However, there’s no pasture, corrals or horse accommodations. That’s cool with us! This area had about two dozen large RVs scattered about a 2 mile... Read more

"Sad privatized NFS campground"

Very expensive $26 a night for dry camping. Lots of road noise, restrooms and showers locked for no reason. Dump site is on the premises but it's another $10 on top of the nightly fee. Three large, unsightly host sites (in the Elk loop alone) with... Read more

"Doesn't get much better than this!"

Three distinct loops, two high, one low. Rushing stream at the rear of our site puts it over the top. Seriously wish we could stay more than one night but we'll be back for sure. Don't miss the nearby Manzanar Japanese internment camp and the... Read more

"Tired NF campground in a lovely location "

We arrived in early October without reservations but we're able to identify a spot with good solar and a reasonable approach for our 23 foot trailer. Most sites and loops were off limits due to machine grinding every bit of ground cover, most... Read more

"Awkward shallow sites on a scenic lake "

I'd give this campground 5 star if it weren't for the challenging layout. Thankfully there was no one here on this clear but Chilly first day of October. Stubby sites are meant for pickup campers, trailers less than 20 feet. We made it work for... Read more
