The road in is VERY narrow and steep. Fortunately we weren't pulling a trailer and our RV is smaller. Couldn't imagine driving in with a 40' diesel pusher. The address is Santa Barbara, but it is over a steep mountain pass from the city of Santa Barbara and the coast.
It was very dry and dusty, though to be fair we were there in August during the drought. The photos on www.rvonthego.com were clearly taken some time ago. The bathrooms were very old, dated and dirty. The pool water was murky - in no way inviting. The ranger at the entrance gate, Linda in the "Country Store" and Bill at the riding stables were all friendly and helpful.
They offered activities such as movie night and wine tasting, though we did not participate.
We cut our visit short and they were very accommodating and quick about refunding the unused portion of our stay.
