Worst camping experience ever

Pros:
1. Cleanest bathrooms!
2. Nice hand soap

Cons:
1. It is very loud, 50 yards from River Road, traffic all night.
2. To get to the river, children must cross a busy street w/semi-trucks.
3 Inconvenient to carry kids, + supplies across river road + guard rails, curbs, a locked gate, and dirt stairs if you use strollers.
4. Dirty swimming area, dusty, muddy, with rocks. Your kids will be covered in mud.
5. Your campsite will be too close to other tents about 10 feet away.
6. There's no cell signal or internet connectivity, so there's no way to locate other points of interest outside this campground without asking the owner.
7. The owner, Ranger Chris, is a hostile host.

You're staying in someone's personal domain, as I learned too late. On our first night Ranger Chris vehemently confronted me with an ultimatum, "Last warning. You, your kid and your dog either get in your tent and go to bed now or you will be removed from my property tonight!" It was just after dinner at about 8-9 PM. We weren't playing music. My little dog is friendly and doesn't bark. I'm sure I was bothering no one, but Ranger Chris. We split 2 bottles of white wine between 3 adults. That's 3.5 glasses each. I know about nuisance campers. No one found us a nuisance except owner Chris. The kids were playing with our little dog & he wandered outside our designated space twice.

We stayed here in a Tent.

A midway campground

I think of this campground as a great place for people who want to go camping but are not exactly keen about the great outdoors. It's close enough to town to make you not feel isolated, but it does have that woodsy feel, with the redwood trees surrounding you and all. The campsites are decently sized but too close together for privacy. Some sites are located too close to the road so they get traffic noise. The facilities are clean and well-maintained. It has a station for washing up, restrooms and hot-water showers. Dogs are welcome except for the aggressive breeds. The manager takes his job seriously and boots out people who disturb quiet time at night. So if you want to party the night away, this won't be a good place for you to stay. Otherwise it's a nice enough campground, a midway point for people who want to camp but aren't big on roughing it out.
