“Good overnight camping spot”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

We tent camped overnight. Campground and bathrooms were clean, good water and flush toilets. Be advised this is a local fishing hole and would not be a destination for most other visitors. However, the tent camping is a deal for only $10.

“Wonderful view, large sites”
Reviewed March 30, 2014 via mobile

Our site at the Santa Rosa State Park is large with paved pad. Electric only at the site, but a convenient dump station is just down the road. Views are nice. Pleasant, quiet, and enjoyable. Lots of walking trails.

“Beautiful, quiet, campground”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

I had no problem maneuvering my 26' travel trailer into a back-in spot. Water and electricity were available, and the campground was really pretty. A huge storm system nearly filled the reservoir in 70 hours last fall (Sept. 2013) and the waters are still a silty red color from that. The trails are lovely, the stars incredible, and the bathrooms clean. The showers on the women's side were always warm, but on the men's side, they remained cold. The Ranger at the visitor center was very helpful, and also explained the shower situation. The hot water hits the women's showers first, but has to travel through 42' of pipe before making it to the men's showers. So, a lot of men need to take a lot of cold showers before the hot water stays hot for them!

“Pretty, peaceful place”
Reviewed October 5, 2013 via mobile

Very pretty desert landscape all around the lake. Good facilities. When we were there on a cool Saturday in early October, there were only two other cars and two cyclists in the whole place.

“Sweet little park and lake”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

The lake is park is right across the road from the Super 8. There is a nice little playground for smaller children, and a nice dock for use.
