We are, now were, frequent visitors to Westside. It is small, 47 spaces, but always was clean, quiet and less windy then Doran. Sadly, we will not be returning. The sites are not well kept up, no grass btwn sites, just dirt/sand. If you park...More

Older park with no amenities, dry-camping only. Not much done in terms of maintenance, especially when you figure in the daily rate and additional up-charges. You pay extra for a second vehicle, a pet and even $7.00 to use the dump station. I’ve never paid...More

This used to be such a nice campground but over the years it has become neglected and run down. You rarely see a ranger come through and it is unkempt. There are potholes in the road and the campsites are never cleaned up or updated....More

Good for boat launching (plenty of trailer parking) and nearby RV camping. Picnic tables are poorly situated near fish cleaning station - smelly! Not a place for tent campers. Great harbor views and close drive to Bodega Bay restaurants are a plus.

A great spot (if you can find one) to camp/RV close to Bodega bay, and walking distance to a couple of local casual restaurants (they close around 5 or 6 so be prepared). Good bathrooms, one at each end, and friendly hosts. But with this...More
