We stayed here over the 4th of July weekend. As many other reviewers have noted, this campground can get VERY busy. However, many of the sites are quite large and readily accommodate a large number of people.
We stayed in an RV site and had plenty of room for 1 or 2 tents. Altogether there were 6 of us and we all fit in the site quite comfortably. The sites on either side of us were very full but there was sufficient room so it didn't feel like people were right on top of us. Each campsite has a metal fire pit and at least one picnic table, most have two.
Our site was very level and very clean when we checked in. Checking in was a breeze. I had pre-paid a few weeks ahead of time (which was also a breeze) and we were setting up camp about 5 minutes after pulling up to the main office.
There is a small pool which was nice and an excellent little store on the premises....they had soft serve ice cream, very good on a hot summer day. The team that supports the campground is very attentive and always patrolling the area to be of assistance and maintain the area.
The full hook-ups were nice, so I can't really review the showers or bathroom since we used those in our travel trailer. There are tent only sites as well for those of you that want a bit of a rougher experience while camping. Those sites are back further and even more wooded than the RV sites (which have a lot of trees). Most looked like they would accommodate more than one large tent per site.
As most of you are aware, CA is in the middle of a drought so accessing water from this campground is a bit difficult. It is now quite a hike down to where the water flows. However, there are still plenty of areas within 20 minutes of the campground that allow for you to play in the lake or even launch a decent sized watercraft.
We will definitely be back to this campground....hopefully the next time the water will be higher.
