Report: Last night (Saturday) I took my family to the Reyes Creek Campground for a night of sitting by the fire, roasting marshmellows and looking at the stars. Oh what a different trip it turned out to be. A group of gangster thugs (10 to 15 in number) blasted music, yelled and cursed until 3:00 a.m. Despite a few of us who yelled at them to shut up, they continued. Reyes creek sits next to Camp Schedieck, a small village with a bar and grill burried in the Los Padres National Forrest. It appeared to me that the hooligans came to drink at the bar and then raise hell all night. Because I didn't have enough ammo in my gun to cover them all, I decided not to confront the drunkards. This appears to be a real party spot on the weekends for fools. Be careful.
Conditions: The campsites themselves are very large and very nice. A number of them are shaded by the trees and sit right next to the creek.
Water Availability: Nice creek.

Report: Worst part of this campground is that its so big. I wouldnt recommend it on the weekends. There were a lot of high school kids getting drunk and a lot of families with a lot of kids making noise. The creek is beautiful and its a convenient trail head to hike into the upper reyes campground.
Water Availability: Dirty vault toilets, but flush toilets nearby with pay showers.
