Overall, this is a nice facility, well maintained. The entrance is pretty and the sites nearest there look onto a large grassy area with lots of trees. You can take a 15 minute walk, down a small road and under a quaint looking trestle bridge, to El Capitan beach. I would, however, recommend requesting a site that is not on an upper level. They're not awful, but they're not nearly as nice as the lower sites, so it's a little disappointing - and you don't get a price break for the difference. We'd go back again now that we have a better idea of the site differences.
Great site! Clean, very nice pool and hot tub. Each site was quite level. Only tow concerns, it was far to expensive and the WiFi was terrible. We would stay there again and swallow the cost. We would not try to do any email or web surfing.
Nice, quiet, easy access off Hwy 101, friendly staff, quick, easy check-in. Plenty of roomy pull-thru spaces with level concrete pads for your rig. Our first time in the Santa Barbara area, so we wanted to stay a couple extra days. Should have been a bit more diligent in checking how far away from Santa Barbara Ocean Mesa actually is. Too late we discovered it's a good 25 miles north of the town.Although a very nice park, it's very expensive at $95 per night.
Next time, we might look for something closer to Santa Barbara.
