You can't beat this place for the price if you're a Passport America member. My only issue with it is what others have noticed: park staff stacks campers right next to one another, even though there are TONS of open spaces in the park. My guess is this is out of convenience for staff. It makes it easier for them to clean up and monitor the campsites. However it's annoying to paying customers who only want a bit of privacy in a parking spot. Management really needs to train their workers to spread out campers.

This is our 3rd time staying here, and our last. "Redneck Acres,"as locals call it, has never been a five star resort but it's always been acceptable for the price and location. As former locals we knew what to expect (wonky sites, no privacy) until we pulled in for the first time in a few years. Things have changed for the worse. Fairgrounds management has raised the nightly rate and opened the park to long-term renters. Apparently this is par for the course these days in the region, perhaps to address the lack of affordable housing in Humboldt County. That's fine, but management needs to enforce their rules. The parking spots (never meant to be lived in full-time) have tenants living in mildew-covered, beat-up RVs (and one old school bus) with tarps on the roofs, exterior junk around the rigs, and two cars parked out front of almost every space. The school bus arrives during the week and only a handful of sites are open for tourists. Then in a crazy twist, the park manager told me I couldn't hang two towels out to dry in the (rare) sunshine because "fairgrounds management would have a fit." Whaaa? In 10 years of full-timing this was the first time we almost pulled out and left before we even plugged in. The only reason we didn't was the only two RV parks in the area were booked. Why? Most likely because they're flooded with long-term renters too. Getting to Humboldt is no easy journey (the main highway was shut 2x during our stay because of landslides). If you go keep in mind that Redneck Acres is the best you'll get in an area with few safe and scenic places to stay.

All the reviews are accurate, this place is a nice spot to stay in while passing through Bakersfield. Big wide open spots with easy, level sites made it a joy to park after a long day driving. Facilities are terrific and with a new laundry room being built it will be even better. It's not a luxury park, but the majority of RV parks don't get much better than this. Well worth the price.

If you get a full-hookup site, this park is great. If you need a back-in and you're over 25' long, forget it. Back-ins are short, narrow and you'll need to do a blind-back in for every single one. You must disconnect in all but one or two back-ins. Parking was a frustrating experience even for us, with 10 years of full-timing under our belts. Whoever designed this park wasn't a RV park designer. The majority of people here are hard-working folks who commute to jobs around the Central Valley. This park has become extremely crowded as California housing costs have skyrocketed. Few sites are available to overnighters so call to make a reservation. Management was great, and even better is the park is now taking Passport America 7 -days a week. Would we stay here again? Sure, but only if we could get a pull through.

Have to agree with the other reviewer, everything was exactly as described and the wifi was fast and free. Loved this place, will return again! (We camped at a cheaper rate because the park was full and we were able to boondock in the tent section).

We're never really crazy about KOAs because they are generally so overpriced, and while this one follows typical KOA pricing, it's a great value and place to stay if you're too tired to make it all the way to Denver. We were traveling without our fifth wheel and couldn't tent camp at a nearby county park as planned, so we bit the bullet and stayed here in a cabin. We're so glad we did. It's run by two of the nicest RV park owners we've met in our eight years of full-time RVing. Despite being overrun at the end of the day by last minute check-ins like us, they were still cheerful and so accommodating to us. As a bonus, they allow pets in two of their four cabins, which gets a BIG paws-up from us because we travel with our German Shepherd. There's shade, a pool, plenty of grass and while the spots definitely aren't made for big-rigs, they're fine for an overnight stay in a rig that's about 34' or less. Don't expect great wifi or fancy amenities and you won't be disappointed. The park is also spotless.

This park is fine for a short stay. Nightly rate is a little high but I though it was reasonable. Close to town, which is cute and full of friendly people. My only complaint was the super scary laundry facilities; a washer and dryer (only 1 each) located in a nasty carpeted bathroom which had a toilet and shower in the same room as the machines. So if someone was using the john or showering, you were SOL with your laundry. But hey for $1 each and a dryer that works GREAT what else do you want right?!

We love this place, see my previous review. Park is now taking online reservations-a must for weekends & summer. You can't make same day reservations online, but if you get there before 4pm go straight to the Visitor Center (not the front ranger booth) where staff can put you in a site, if available. Midweek you can usually find a spot same day. Don't arrive after 4pm & expect to get a site, as ranger at entrance can't do that, the booth doesn't even have a computer to see if there is availability!

This better-than-average park is an acceptable place for the frugal RVer. Yep, sites are tight (pay the extra $3 for the pull throughs if you can get one) and the freeway noise is loud. But if you have a Passport America membership, it's your only game in town if you need to be in SD on a weekend and don't want to pay double just down the road. The absolute best part about this park was the workout room, pool, and hot tub. The facilities were impeccable and the best we've seen even at pricier parks. The nightly hot tub soaks more than made up for the freeway in our backyard.

Super nice state park complete with hiking, fishing, etc., and even inexpensive laundromat services. Can't ask for much more except maybe a lower rate. At $32 a night for W/E I just about croaked! Staff says it's super busy in summer but during fall we were only 1 of 4 or so campers. The camp hosts were also exceptionally nice.

Nice staff with basic (but tight) accommodations in North Atlanta region. The park is tidy and even the long-termers keep things fairly neat around their rigs. My only beef is that for $30 a night, you'd expect at least a restroom facility and laundromat. Otherwise, it's fine if you need to be near the city.

With relatively new owners who are doing their best to clean up this formerly dilapidated park, this place has a lot of potential. The scenery is nice and it's really pleasant most of the time. We arrived in time to catch the park's annual haunted house event, which was really a lot of fun and free to campers. Now, if I wanted to nitpick about the park itself, I would say that: 1) There are a lot of long-term residents who really need to clean up their surroundings. 2) The campground can fit larger rigs but there are tight turns, lots of low trees and really poorly designed hookup locations. Our sewer hose barely reached the connector and our overall length is only 26'. 3) The gravel on each site is a real PITA, we had to use 4wd to get enough traction to park. The one thing that really got me down on Stoney Creek was the non-stop leaf blowing and burn piles that went on the entire week we were here.

This place lives up to its "Resort" name. Super clean facilities, really spotless campgrounds for big and small rigs, and relatively easy access to downtown KC. The park is very pet friendly and has a relaxing, country-style feel. The only thing it really needs is an exercise room but other than that it's a great place to stay when you have to be near the city. I wouldn't go anywhere else around here.
Date of Stay: January, 2011
Nice place and sites are plenty wide enough but short enough that you need to park somewhere else if your rig is over 30'. Clean park, good staff, nice little play area on the waterfront. Mostly long term residents. The only issues I have are 1) wireless isn't free, and 2) the laundry room only has one washer and one dryer and both are expensive. Other than that, it's a good enough place for an overnight or two.

If you're wondering why I gave this a 10, after reading the other reviews, that's because this place is an absolute BARGAIN for anyone who wants to visit beautiful Santa Fe and doesn't want to pay the outrageous prices that the nearby full service RV parks charge. This is our 3rd time here and we've never paid less than $35 a night. Many thanks to the first RVer here who wrote about it. Yes, the fairgrounds are basic and nothing more than a gravel parking lot against some bleachers. But the spots are spaced apart fairly wide, they can fit any sized rig, and there's full hookups for TWENTY BUCKS a night! The RV area is tucked away from the street so it's relatively quiet. And, you're in the heart of Santa Fe without having to pay a huge price. Bring exact change, cash only, and be sure to call ahead to warn them you're coming. The gate is locked and you must be let in when you arrive. You can get to it from either Cerrillos Rd. or St. Francis off I-25.
