Stood here for the weekend in March 2013 and had a great time! We stood with some friends who had a water front spot (2123) while we had a spot in the row behind them (2122). Although our spot was nice, it doesnt compare to the waterfront spots! As stated in other reviews, all of the spots are pretty narrow, unless you get one of the end or corner spots, you have just enough room on one side for the picnic table and a little bit of walking space and thats about it. You back straight up to your neighbors behind you, but it really insnt that bad. If you are going with a large group though, make sure you get a waterfront spot so you can have room for everyone to hang out together out in front on the grass area. We spent all of our time at our friends spot up by the water so it wasnt a big concern for us.We took our own fire pit, but you can use the ones over down by the beach area, or even rent one from the store if you forget yours! The front desk staff was nice and very helpful. When I called to make my reservation and let them know I wanted to be near our friends who had already reserved their spot, they did everything they could to get me right next to them! The market was great for snacks & treats for the kids and has the best soft serve Ive had in a while! We forgot to take coffee with us and it was so easy to head over to the store to grab a cup of fresh brewed java every morning! A lot of the reviews I've read say they had problems with dogs doing their "business" right in front of them, and although we saw plenty of dogs, not once did we see any inapproiate behavior from either the dogs, or their owners. There are quite a few long term residents and some older guests who are not too happy with young kids or guest with large families and although we did have one uncomfortable moment with one of our neighbors, it wasnt too bad. By the end of the weekend, we had chatted a bit, so things ended up being ok. And I did feel that majority of the guest there were very welcoming and nice. I do think it would be better though if they had a section identified in the park as the "quietier" section. This way families with young children can do what they came out here to do, camp, have a good time, ride their bicycles and just enjoy themselves and not worry about waking the neighbors at 2pm. The park feels very safe and you have no problems letting your kids ride their bikes throughout the resort! We did the bike ride from the resort over to balboa and took the ferry across the way and rode down to newport beach pier and back and had a great time! Wifi worked great, the bathrooms and the park over all was very clean and well maintained. We will definitely be back!
