16 JUNE 2010

I stayed here as an overnight stopover. I was able to call and make a reservation. Which is very nice since alot of military parks do not. The trains & whistles were there but I was still able to sleep. Will have to have a spot further away from the train tracks next time as my husband is a very light sleeper. The sites are only graveled not paved so tracking dirt into the unit...

One of the nicest parks we have stayed at, the only detractor was beyond their control, the weather (almost 65mph wind gusts). Loc: Across from the main base, near housing, not much around it. Clean/Hosp: Very friendly staff, grounds although gravel/dirt, very clean even with the wind. Amn/Fac: Nice walking trails, great dog play area and the base has full facilities along with a very nice all weather surface jogging trail. Value: A very good deal for a resort town,...

We have stayed here several times and wanted to add a few updates. Loc: A short trip to Channel Island Visitor Ctr and close to Hwy. Clean/Hosp: Great as always. Amn/Fac: As already noted, being expanded in size, we think it will still get filled fairly well. Base has everything and recommend utilizing the little bar/grill at the golf course. Value: Even at the price, to be coastal, this is still a good value. Similar State Parks, some without hookups...

Location: Near I-15, but at the back of the base and a little walk to get back to the check-in with the site number. Clean/Hosp: Park was clean and check-in staff was friendly. Amn/Fac: Fairly basic, some sites on asphalt or cement, but others on dirt/gravel and narrow. No site items (tables, fire pits (at least on the asphalt. Confusing "reserved" signs hanging on site number posts can make it difficult to determine what is actually available. Never saw a...

This is a real hidden gem. Location: The only detractor is the dirt road to reach the park, some rough areas for a motorhome. Clean/Hosp: Site was clean as was campground, even with near 50 tent campers (the dumpster did overflow). Staff helped get backed in. Amn/Fac: RV sites require backing in and this can require a bit of maneuvering. Lots to do for adults and kids (tennis, basketball, horseshoes, hiking and biking as well as close to town. Value:...

This was our 1st stay here. Location: Right at the beach and near (less than 2 miles) from Basilone Gate PX facility (PX/Commissary, gas, etc.). Clean/Hosp: Camp and beach well kept, sites clean, mowed, trash free. Rest room/shower facilities are typical beach style, open roofed and of course sandy with the one on the top of the bluff being a bit cleaner. The staff is great. Amen/Fac: Lots of options and site types. Many mobile home style cabins including some...

This was a park with lots of goods, but also some detractors that made the ratings difficult. Location: Definitely a little out of the way, and the gates allowing RV entry make it even more out there. Also, a bit of distance from base facilities for those wanting to walk (1.3 miles to BX area). The location is also an advantage in that it is nice and quiet. Clean/Hosp: We were there during the first big storm of the...

Stayed here over 2 weekends and will return. Location: If looking for a base of travel in the LA area, this is a nice point. Without a toad, the surrounding areas are a bit of a hike. Although, with a bicycle, the city, shops and beach are quite easy to get to. Clean/Hosp: RV pad areas were well maintained, the bathrooms/laundry as well. The staff at check-in was also friendly and helpful. Amen/Fac: Park has a RV wash area (any...

If you are looking for a park "ON" the ocean, this is it. Location: The base and park are a bit away from the surrounding city and without a toad, its a bit of a walk to the NEX area. But, you are 1 sand dune from the beach. Clean/Hosp: Front desk staff very nice and helpful (also serves as lodge/hotel desk). A drawback to being so close to the beach is lots of blowing sand and the restrooms are...

This was our 2nd and 3rd time staying here and we will return again. There are many long term RV'ers staying here, but during both visits, once they had reached the 30 day mark, they were requiring them to leave for a week (VERY unusual for many military parks, but great to see them enforce the rules vice ignore them!). Talked to many of the people staying and everyone was really happy about their stay.

We have stayed here 4 times now and agree with many of the comments about the shower area and sites. It is also a bit of a walk to get to the shower areas from many of the sites. This was our first time staying in one of the full hook-up sites, they are gravel, mostly level. Also, there are many lakefront sites that are at a very steep angle and difficult to level out on. The mini-golf/picnic area across...

Used this as a point to view the Morro Bay/Cambria/Hearst Castle area. Location: Like most of the comments, this park is a bit out of the way, but quiet. Clean/Hosp: Gate sentry very nice and friendly, due to holiday, check in/out closed until our check out. Park very dusty during frequent windy conditions. Restrooms very old and rundown, but working. Amen/Fac: Most base facilities were closed or on very limited hours of operation, even during non-holiday times. There is a...

We really enjoyed our stay at this park, very clean and modern. Location: a little off of Hwy 101, but near Channel Island shops and marina area. Clean/Hosp: Kept quite clean, lounge/laundry/rest rooms plus grounds nice. Very friendly staff. Amen/Fac: All concrete pads, mostly level, full base facilities all close to park, seabee museum. A nice area, we will return.

Location- not much around area. Good stop-over park. Cleanliness/Hospitality - Given the choice to pay at check-in pm or check-out in am. Amenities/facilities - Glacier water machine not working with no sign stating. Change machine was out of money in laundry facility, but lots of machine. Had to walk to shoppette to obtain change. NEX had control of vending machines/change machine. Shade was at a premium, it was hot. Value - excellent stop over park.

Location- was easy to get to from the main gate. But coming from Hwy 10, going west we passed one closed gate and drove half way around the perimeter of the base to get to the "main gate". Amenities/facilities - nice fitness trail by the golf course. Park has both gravel & concrete slabs and generally level. Value - excellent for the price. Would stay again.
