We were looking for our first camping experience in the Russian River area in over 20 years and were very glad we chose Schoolhouse Canyon. Initially we looked at Casini Ranch but after reading all the horrid reviews all over the web on them, we felt that Schoolhouse Canyon would better suite our tastes. The camp sites were perfect and even though they weren't too terrible far apart, we didn't mind seeing our neighbors from time to time. The restroom facilities were the best one could expect and the general cleanliness on the grounds was great. On the staff end, we only got to meet Chris and he was sweet as pie and very helpful. I think we lucked out with our fellow campers as mostly all were quiet and respectful people. The later evenigns were really quiet with no rowdy, partying people to keep you up. Just remember to bring really warm sleeping bags thought because it can get pretty chilly in the early morning hours under those redwoods, even in August. We'll definately be back and maybe stay farther up in the canyon next time.
