Made an advance reservation for a week but upon arrival had to leave the next day due to lack of adequate services. We reserved a pull thru 50amp but arrived to a pull thru between a shed and a cabin with only 30amp service. Once hooked up, we experienced a power surge and lost power. Thank God we had our surge guard between our bus and the RV park power source...discovered the surge caused a minor spark that shut down our battery source and power. We contacted the owner who was very understanding...he actually just bought the facility and is making improvements throughout the park, to include adding more 50 amp. Current 50amp is designated for long term residents. He quickly refunded our entire stay and apologized for the problems we experienced. We left after only staying one night. If 50 amp is upgraded to all sites, we would consider staying again because the area is beautiful and there are so many Harley rides we would love to do in that area. Thankful the owner was understanding.

The worst camp I visited
The sites are not leveled. There is no sewer. The hook ups are in the wrong side of the RV. The Laundromat is closed at 21 and very expensive. Poor internet. Not friendly receptionist. but when it comes to rate they charge as they are state of the art. I will not visit again.

An Ordeal
We were charged for our entire stay at reservation time (instead of the standard first night deposit only), and were told there would be no refunds. We were told that camp water and sewer systems were inoperable (frozen up), but were still charged full hookup rates. Access lanes were barely navigable, made worse by a giant construction pit in the vicinity of the office for the plumbing repairs. Damaged our RV (and a campground pipe, for which we were charged) trying to thread obstructed lanes to reach slot. No power at our site; management had to poach from neighbor's pylon. Site unlevel, muddy, and little room to park tow vehicle. WiFi very balky but usable once you figured out how to keep it happy. Restrooms were chilly and dark (but props for the hand-welded stainless stalls and the roomy showers). Night-shift residents idled diesels at all hours. Steep and winding routes to campground's hilltop location not friendly for medium/large rigs. No cell service. Won't be back.

Nice little campground. It is no longer called Dory Hill. It is called Base Camp at Golden Gate Canyon. The new staff is very friendly and helpful. Bathrooms are clean and showers have good hot water. The store was well stocked and the inside sinks in the laundry room for doing dishes was very nice. The Wifi was spotty, but better than some parks I have camped at, but no cell signals. The sites need leveling and fresh gravel to give it four stars when we were there late 2015. Other than a group of cub scouts having fun, the campground was quiet at night. Great star watching location too.
