  1. Sandy says:

    Can our fifth wheel 30 ft fit into campsites 20 or 21?

    1. Camp Ranger says:

      Hi Sandy,

      Campsite 20 can accommodate an RV/trailer up to 50 feet and campsite 21 – up to 45 feet.

  2. The rules state two vehicles per campsite. Does this include a pop trailer? Do you have overflow parking for another car? It also states Maximum 8 people but a 10.00 fee for after six people. Does this include children?

    1. Camp Ranger says:

      Hi Rebecca,
      The two vehicles include a trailer / pop-up trailer. So if you had a car/truck and trailer – that would be 2 vehicles.

      Limit of 2 vehicles per site; additional vehicles are not permitted.
      Reservations can be made three days in advance. All single campsite reservations are good for 6 people and 1 vehicle.
      Maximum number of people per single site is 8 ($10.00 additional charge per person per night after 6 people). Maximum number of vehicles per single site is 2 ($10.00 additional charge for 2nd vehicle per night). Extra vehicle and person fees will be charged at the facility.

  3. Donna Matzenbacher says:

    Do you have full hookups

    1. Camp Ranger says:

      Hi Donna,

      There are no hookups (partial or full) at Plaskett Creek State Park.

  4. Megan says:

    It is supposed to rain this weekend. Does site #27 have any trees to hook up tarps for cover?

    1. Camp Ranger says:

      Hi Megan,
      From the photo it looks like there are a few big trees next to campsite 27, but not sure if they are close enough to rig a tarp/cover. You can view the photo HERE. You may also double check with the campground to see if rigging tarps are allowed: 805 434-1996.

  5. Mark says:

    Are there any sites on the creek? Hard to tell from the photos.

    1. Camp Ranger says:

      Hi Mark,

      Not really. Campsites 6 and 8 are closest to ‘Plaskett Creek’, but still about 20-30 yards away. There’s another seasonal creek that flows through the campground (but heavily overgrown). Campsites 35, 36, 38 and 40 are really close to it.
