Amazing making two reviews for the same campground approximately four years apart, but these national forest campgrounds which are now run by concessionaires don't get the normal reports that your private campgrounds get, so here goes . The campground has a host which seem to be a nice enough guy but did absolute zero for the campground, so it needed cleanup and just TLC that could be done at each site to make it how can I say it more nice for the people that use it. The price has gone down for me due to the fact that I have reached that milestone in life where these types of campgrounds become 50% off, so in that regard it was a bargain or you might say excellent value. This is totally dry camping. Be prepared for that if you are in an RV of some sort come with water and empty gray and black tanks. If you are tenting they do have water spigots and also toilets that are available. Early June was a good time to be there. The campground was pretty much empty. We had the campground totally to ourselves, very relaxing. I will definitely come back again and do my own cleanup at the site we pick. - monaco cruiser

This is a old National Forest Campground that is run by concessionaires (Dodge Ridge Corp.). This is a strictly dry camping campground with a few water spigots spread out for your convenience; no dump station. This is a pretty campground above 5,000 feet elevation with a nice stream that borders the campground. These campgrounds sometimes attracts your inconsiderates who come up on the weekend to drink/party, etc. , which is quickly controlled by a good campground host, which this campground has. Generators are allowed three hours a day, which is good. Big rig space is very limited but possible if you know your limits. We would camp here again. - monaco cruiser

New owners. Very friendly and helpful. Stores open but short supply. Selling old inventory. They have basicfood stuffs. Restaurant is open for meals check which. Gas and diesel open. 15 amp service with 30 or 50 connections. Other hook ups are there. My only complaint is some ppl had big as dogs and are not restrained at the campsites. Allowed to walk freely. I see as a threat to other pets on leashes. Kennedy Meadows and other sights and trailheads nearby. River is across the street. Also an option for camping. I will be back for sure!!!! - tpeterson

Very disappointed upon arrival and seeing our campsite for the next 7 days. I only had 25' of 30 amp cord and 10' of sewer drain line (not near enough) at this particular site. Little chilly at night and 90's during the day and could not run our ac while plugged into their power. The website said 30 amp service but they want you to use 15 amp or less as all power is provided by a large generator. Bring lots of leveling blocks as sites are very rough at best. The snow from last winter hit this resort very hard as there is a lot of damage to some of the cabins. The restraunt and bar never opened during our stay. No gas available at the pumps and laundry facility was closed. Do ALL shopping prior to arrival as store is limited on supplies and for what they do have you will pay $$$. Bring 30 amp ext cords, extra sewer drain lines and at least 50' of drinking water hose. - KevinlHeaney

This is a family run RV resort/motel/cabins resort near the top of Sonora Pass. It is very rustic as is consistent with the area it is in. We go there each summer for a family reunion and it is perfect. We have 18 kids 12 and under and they ride bikes, run, play games and all over the property. Fishing and hiking is within walking distance. There is also a restaurant and small bar for the end of the day when everyone has gone to bed. The motel rooms plus the cabins work very well as not all of the families have RVs. For those looking for a resort experience (paved roads, pools, wifi) this is not the place. But if you want a true mountain experience where you truly get away from it all, this is your spot. Tall pine and cedar trees provide shade and the surrounding mountains provide beauty and the nightly bonfire is a great way to get to meet your neighbors and enjoy some smoores. - User2966
