A lot of work went in to carving out this campground on a hill between trees. The entry road is narrow and a 180 degree turn has to be made at the office. Access to the pull-through sites is back down another very narrow road. The sites are terraced as they step down the hill. To be close to level at the rear of the site I needed to unload the car and disconnect the dolly, as the front of the site dropped off. This is a no phone zone but the Wi-Fi was OK. For the TV cable to connect bring a female/female gender changer as the cable end is male. The friends we met here were in a tent and this park had the combination of sites for all needs. A nice park on a hill in the trees and as long as you are ready for tight and narrow even big rigs can fit in.

The park changed hands 6 months ago and they are working on repairing years of deferred maintenance. I was told that there were problems with the water, power, or sewer in over 80% of the sites but most have been corrected. The restroom is available with a keypad 24 hours when the office is closed. The staff was much friendlier than in the past and was concerned that we had a good experience. Boom Town security does patrol the park regularly and is available on call 24 hours. The looks of this bare bones park has changed little over the 8 years when we stay in September but we do not use it as a destination park. The easy access and distance from the noise of I-80 works for our needs.

We needed a Vancouver site for a week and after spending 3 nights at another RV Park we moved here. Long pullthru or double wide back in sites with plenty of room for the car caddy and car. All sites are level gravel with paved access roads. I-5 runs along the west side of the park, but a sound wall keeps the noise down to a point that it did not keep us up at night. All shopping and conveniences are within 1/4 mile and the park has a much safer feel than the other. The Wi-Fi worked well and all local TV stations were strong on the antenna. Not a destination park, but more than adequate for a place to explore the wineries in the area. No pool or kids play area, but a 3 mile long walking trail along a river less than 1/2 mile away.

This is an older park with some transient sites, but mostly long term residents. Not as bad as a homeless encampment but nowhere near an RV resort. The Wi-Fi works close to the office only and the cable TV is very poor. Our antenna pulled in all local HD stations, but again no cable sports, weather channel or others. Virtually no place for dogs to go as most grass is posted - No Pets. Most sites are narrow and short with a few near the office a little longer and wider. There is little road noise but every car/truck that drives in the park has a modified exhaust system so it is louder than stock. All shopping is close and a number of wineries are within 10 miles. If you don't ask for much you will not be disappointed. The park is cash/check only which should tell you something and we left after 3 days after paying for a week.

I gave this park a 9 because it is new, has wide paved access roads and level paved sites. All sites are 12ft wide with 12ft of grass between pull through spots and 18ft between the back in sites around the outside. We are 56ft long and there was plenty of length to the site. This was a perfect place to spend a night on the way between here and there. Do not look for a destination park as there is no playground, camp store or pool, just a clean easy to use park. One downside is the lack of any convenience or grocery store within walking distance but there are lots of fast food and family eating places near. Look for exit 1A at the exit of the toll way from either direction which is only a few hundred feet on the right after the toll booths.

An OK stop for one night, but little more. The place was once nicely kept up and pretty but little has been done lately as large weeds intrude on access roads, the patio area has seen better days and only one overworked guy is on duty who locks the office doors when out in the park. The pull throughs are water/elect only which works for one night, the power and water was good and the site was level. There is no TV and my computer air card did not connect to the internet; however, our AT&T phone was good. It is next to I-40 but below grade so the noise was not bad. Take exit 140 and 3 miles west along the frontage road, easy to find.

There are 72 full hook up pull through sites available. Sites 57-72 are 40ft or less in length but all of the rest are 60ft plus. All pads are paved, reasonably level and wide enough for slides both sides. There is some freeway noise but is reduced the further west your site is located. The park was full on a Saturday late in Feb but only ¼ full Sunday. I reserved on line and my CA Distinguished Veterans Pass reduced the $60 park fee to $0. This park is much better than the San Mateo State campground just south of here on the other side of the freeway which is back in only, no sewer and the same price.

This is a park suspended in time. We had the same premium site as last year on the same weekend in September, same grumpy guy in the office, same price, everything. The large patio, additional table and chairs, fire pit and gas BBQ in addition to the picnic table was perfect for entertaining guests. Last year the site to our left was unusable due to a water spigot which had been backed into and wrapped in caution tape. This year nothing had changed as the same spigot has yet to be repaired. That was nice since it left more room for our guests to park. The park showers were the worst of the 5 parks we visited according to the couple who rode with us. This place is nothing fancy but is next to a real Nevada casino with a decent convenience store at the gas station. Any real shopping and services are 4-5 miles east toward Reno which makes walking out of the question. This is not a destination KOA with lots to do for the kids but it does offer an easy to use park for big rigs when most of your time is spent some other place.

What a gem of a park only 3 hours north of Orange County for a first night on the road away from LA. Large level sites are small gravel and an easy access close to Hwy 99 but far enough away where the traffic cannot be heard. Everything worked and there was a nice pool and public area next to a full service restaurant and bar. Our gueses said the the showers and dressing area was the best of the 5 places we stayed on the trip. We cook in the rig but the beer battered onion rings and stuffed mushrooms for an appetizer were too much to resist. The park is owned by RV’ers and run by nice employees who offer quick service with an easy to access propane fill. This is a great place in Bakersfield of all places when going from here to there.

This is a great place for the fishing and hunting enthusiast but not a destination RV resort. The spaces are narrow on gravel with raised concrete pads for the table provided. If you are towing anything it will run over the edge of the pad on the way out of the spot. Not bad but be aware of the short pull through spaces. Everything worked on the hookups with lots of cable stations. We use this park as an easy one night stop between Reno and Orange County.

We have stayed here over a dozen times in the last 5 years and it continues to be a very nice park with one exception. Their power cannot handle any hot weather. We arrived at 2pm in the heat and fired up both airs on the 50 amp plug. Our Progressive power management system shut us down as the power sagged below a safe level for the AC. I noticed other rigs were running generators so I went to the office to see what was going on. Their answer was to not run both AC's as the park could not handle the load when it is hot. We followed their lead until later in the day. The following day we were working one air through the power management system when the whole park shut down. For a nice park they are unable to offer the power usage expected for rigs of any size. Beware when you are here and it is hot.

We have enjoyed going here over the last 4 ½ years during which time no major changes were made. No sites have been added but upgrades have been made to most of the slightly smaller back in sites along the south and east edges. Cement pads for tables along with a white plastic trellis to separate the table from the next site have been added along with a price increase for the now premium locations. Also some of the corner sites with larger grass areas are surrounded by a low white fence and there is a patio cover over the new table cement area. These are now known as luxury sites. Formal concrete picnic areas have been added with a dozen tables and gas bar-b-q along with some covered cabanas around the pool. A good sized fenced in grass dog park has also been added. As of May 1 the prices are $45-65 during the week and $55-75 weekends. Since this park is associated with a casino and other adult activities such as a golf course and wineries it is not intended as a family destination as there is little for children to do. The park continues to be well run, friendly, regularly patrolled and worth the money if this is your kind of a park. We will be back for our next scheduled wine pick up.

There may be over 700 sites available but of that number about 100 are worth asking for. Call first and confirm sites on the upper two levels with numbers above 414 and going up to 559. The pull-thru sites are over 100’ long and the back in are all more than double wide. All are level with concrete pads and the view of the casinos below at night is great. It is almost ½ mile from the casino entrance to the upper level but the free shuttle runs 24 hours and is wheelchair accessible. There is no need to park on gravel in narrow sites if you know what to ask for. Prepare for wind most of the time and bring some kind of a mat to cover the gravel which makes up what is not concrete. Watch for the specials and prices are as low as $89/week. Also for cable TV bring a F/F adapter as the cable connection provided is male. My Verzion computer air card worked well up top but was worthless in the casino parking lot below where many dry camp. For a comfortable place to park in the middle of the desert the top levels are hard to beat at less than the cost of a football bet.

The rate reflects an end patio site with shade, gas BBQ, additional seating and above ground fire ring. We entertain friends during the Air Race weekend and the additional space is worth the price. There is little improvement in the looks of the park beyond the end sites over the last four years. Office hours are shorter and a number of sites were unusable due to damaged water or electric connections. Our site was level with easy access with the car in tow. The dog run is all dirt but good size. The park is close to I-80 but behind and below the casino from the road noise and cannot be heard. The transcontinental train tracks run through the valley below the park but all that is heard is an occasional whistle and are not loud. I like the out of town location but if you do not have a car there is nothing within walking distance. A large Chevron convenience store near the casino is the only choice for anything you forgot. Truckee is just up the hill on I-80 and Lake Tahoe another 12 miles which makes this the location we like and will be back next year.

The pads are long and level, but so narrow that the stairs extend out into the ground cover. A note in the office said they are going to widen the pads. The hookups are located at the very beginning of the site and makes the reach to the sewer very long if you are a motorhome towing a car. The sites on the side closest to the freeway do get some road noise but the rest of the park is quiet. Access to the park from the freeway is easy and navigating to the sites offers no problems. And yes, the puppy loved the dog park. We will stay here again.
