Pierson Ranch - 2017
0 % of users found this review helpful
This is a great campground, and especially for little kids. There are two very close and nice playgrounds within the park. The camping spots are basically very level (easy for parking the camper) and the spots are quite spacious. The bathroom facilities are tough to beat. Always clean and always a hot shower.

I brought my dog along,she had her bark collar on. The campers across from me had two dogs. They were told by the campground hosts that their dogs were barking too much and too loud. This was midday. I see no reason to turn campers in for dogs barking during daylight hours. People have children playing,loud music and partying partying going on. 10 30 pm is quiet time if any noise is made then it should be reported. In short I recommend that we should not bring our beloved pets along.
