My husband and I camped here on 10/3 and it was surprisingly pleasant! The park is nestled right alongside a busy road, so we were a little skeptical driving up to it. We camped in spot #8 which had a good amount of privacy and was up a little hill, so we didn't feel like we were right on top of other campers. The bathrooms were clean and close by, and there's water piped in at each site, along with a large fire pit. The "lake" is the only disappointment, which isn't any big surprise. It was actually pretty interesting to walk along the dry lake bottom and imagine what it used to look like. It feels like you're in some post-apocalyptic movie or something...sad because of the drought, but still an interesting experience!
