    Days stayed: 1

    Site number: 25

    Pros: 1. Cleanest bathrooms!2. Nice hand soapCons:1. It is VERY LOUD: 50 yards from River Road: traffic all day, and ALL NIGHT.2. To get to the river, children must cross a street that has fast-driving semi-trucks.3 INCONVENIENT to carry kids, + supplies across highway + guard rails, curbs, a locked gate, and dirt stairs if you use strollers.4. DIRTY “swimming” area, is dust, mud, + rocks. Water is muddy: your kids will be covered in mud.5. Your campsite will be TOO CLOSE TO OTHER TENTS 10 feet away. 6. There’s NO CELL SIGNAL or internet connectivity: so there’s no way to locate other points of interest outside this campground without asking the owner.7. THE OWNER, Ranger Chris, is a HOSTILE HOST.You’re staying in someone’s personal domain, as I learned too late. “On our first night Ranger Chris vehemently confronted me with an ultimatum: “LAST WARNING: YOU, YOUR KID, & YOUR DOG EITHER GO TO BED NOW, OR YOU WILL BE REMOVED FROM MY PROPERTY TONIGHT!” It was just after dinner at about 8-9pm. We weren’t playing music. My little dog is friendly and doesn’t bark. I’m sure I bothered no one but Ranger Chris. We split 2 bottles of white wine between 3 adults. That’s 3.5 glasses each. I know about nuisance campers. No one found us a nuisance except owner Chris. The kids were playing with our little dog & away from us twice. A 3rd time he caught me breaking another rule: *disturbing no one but him*, and yet he threatened to have my family removed from his property. He said, “You’re drunk!”.I didn’t argue what-so-ever. We went to bed right away and left the next morning.To be fair, it can’t be easy to run this campground with the problems he must face there. I like that he keeps bathrooms immaculately clean with nice hand soap! I hope this review conveys for you, fellow campers, and what you will find at Schoolhouse canyon. If you need a decent place to camp nearby, *as long as you’re not bothering others: Consider ANY other location such Mirabel park 10 mins down the road. Children can enjoy camping anywhere. Even next to a freeway. But families with their children & pets who want to relax with more privacy, this is NOT it.
