Many campsites available during the week, but I think they fill up on weekends. Sites are level and most are fairly long & wide, but many have the table and fire-pit on the side opposite the door to your trailer. Contract janitorial service did minimal cleaning of restroom; did not use showers. Can get very hot during the summer. Access to lake from this campground & side of the lake is difficult, except from Deer Camp group site. We were able to launch kayaks into the river inlet arm of the lake, but it was a challenge. Paddling up the river inlet arm was wonderful, with lots of wildlife. We camped at Bushay Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.

Made a last minute reservation as I was not able to make it to the park I was trying to get to. I was so glad to find this diamond in the rough. The trees do need to be trimmed in this park, as there are a lot that are low hanging. There were literally only 2 other campers in the park with me. No one was at the entrance when we went in - self check-in. We drove around a little looking at sites. We were turning around to get a spot and found the real diamond site. There is only 1 electric/water site. It doesn't show on the Reserve America site on the map. It only shows on the list section. It shows as length 35 ft, but this site has nothing behind it for 30 ft. I was able to put my 35 ft travel trailer in with my crew-cab connected and still had 30 ft behind me. The lake is a decent size. It was a little low when we were there, but that gave a nice size beach. There are a lot of squirrels and we saw wild turkeys and deer walking around in the park. To get to this park, it is at the north end of Lake Mendocino. There is a road that cuts off under a bridge and then you follow it back for a mile or so along a river (this is off the 20 highway). There was supposed to be a dump station at this park, but I did not see one and none shows up on the Reserve America website map. There is a decent size park for the kids and a lot of grass. The sites are mostly in the woods with grassy meadows in between loops. Our site had a fire ring and a table. We camped at Bushay Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.
