They Don’t Assign Spots!
This is the worst Campground I’ve ever stayed at! I paid $80/night for 6 nights and when I arrived there were no full-service spots available. They told me spots are not assigned and I had to drive around to find a spot. After looking around the entire Campground I went back to the check in lady and said all the spots were full. She told me I would have to go down to the power/water only area and find a spot there. I drove down and it looked like a ghetto and impassable roads and there was no way I could get my 24ft RV into any spot. I went back up to the check-in lady and she again advised me that spots are “first-come/first-serve” and I could try in the morning if someone left. I was furious! We ended up boon-docking in their parking lot for the night. While the check-in lady was very kind and tried her best, the policy of not pre-assigning spots is absolutely ridiculous! Especially for $80/night. I will leave here having lost $491 and go somewhere else. Don’t come here!

Pretty but Hot
We stayed 4 nights. It is vwry pretty but was also very hot. They have many things to do here including horseback riding. During the week was very quiet but picked up on friday. The sites are very small and there is no privacy at all. Staff is very friendly.

Great Place
It’s all about camping and fun. Many things to do and everyone is nice and informative. Don’t let the mountain location drive you away. Rancho Oso is very easy to get to.
