I stayed two nights in campsite 61 and had an amazing time. If you visit in the summer, make sure your site has shade or bring a canopy. If you want a bit of privacy, choose sites 71 or 72 which is in the back surrounded by trees. This campground is very convenient and close to everything--town is 10 minutes away. They have a small beach area on the other side of the park where you can go swimming or you can go to Sandy Beach Park and make a day of it. There's also awesome windsurfing and kitesurfing nearby. I did a beginner lesson with Delta Wind Sports and it was a blast!
Rules are too strict and when it gets dark earwigs fall from the trees and come up from the ground and take over EVERYTHING. Dogs must be on leash at all times and they cannot enter the water. Only two license plates per site even though they can comfortably fit 3 cars and 6 cars squished. The people in charge drive around in golf caddies so you get a sense of being watched all the time. Overall, bad experience especially because of the bugs. Bathrooms were very clean however.
Great spot in a beautiful area. Brannan Island is the best and this campground is a solid choice if you want to stay in that area.
