Reviews were mixed on this Thousand Trails campground, so we were a bit nervous about staying here. It’s in a lovely setting about a mile off the 101 freeway. The most difficult part of the campground is the steep narrow roads in and around the campground. 

You pick your own site, but there’s no great place to unhook, so we drove around searching for a site, landing in Loop C with site 53 because it was flat, close to the main campground road, and empty. We unhooked by the propane tank, which was one of the few level spots in the campground.

When we pulled up, there was no one in the guard shack, but we called the posted number and the ranger answered right away, telling us to take a campground map, and giving us the gate code. We could take any green or yellow tagged site (those are based on length). Sites are in the trees with lots of shade, but are highly variable in terms of length and levelness. 

We liked site 53 a lot and as we drove around, we didn’t see any available sites that we liked better, though 101 was good as well. Bathrooms are adequate, though we didn’t use the showers. 

This is a great location for wine tasting in Sonoma County and visiting family (which we were), but it’s not an easy campground to get in and around, so that’s what our concerns were about. There is a road down to the river, but we didn’t have time to investigate that. The cats gave the campsite two paws up.
