We've camped here many times, and have always had a good experience (which is why we keep coming back). The $50/night is getting pricy, as the cost has gone up almost each year.The campground is very large, and there's lots of camping options available. The most popular is the camping circles with hook-ups - these are somewhat close together, so hopefully you have good neighbors. Otherwise, there are other spots along the road or in the backside of the campground that afford more privacy. Yes, the roads are gravel and you have to deal with some mud and dirt in your RV, but generally, the campground is very well-maintained, with clean bathrooms/showers. There's lots of trees, and grassy fields, so lots of room to play and walk the dog. We understand the owner's have changed (again), but the front office is still the same and she's generous and very helpful. Understandably, they don't take credit cards (probably don't want to pay the % to the bank), so no big deal, we mail them a check. Is it a resort - well, maybe not, but it does provide decent camping near Pt. Reyes Natl Seashore, with lots of opportunities for recreation and day trips. We just spent 4 nights there, and I wish we could have stayed longer.
