The Cassel Campground was very clean PG&E does a great job of taking care of their campground. Garbages were emptied daily. There’s adequate privacy between campsites and adequate shade. The campers all seemed very nice and no roudy campers at night.
The terrain is very flat, so those with disabilities can get around easily. There are a couple accessible campsites at Cassel campground available to those with disabilites.
The only thing was that a man-made canal that runs behind the campgrounds (about 50ft from where we were at) and is usually stocked full of trout was empty due to a pipe breakage. But it’s not far to get to the water elsewhere. Update: The pipes have been fixed and the fishing is back to normal.
