In spite of what RV park reviews says, this park does not have pull through sites and is very limited for large rigs. In order to park our 40' motorhome here (in the largest spot which they had) we had to leave the park, go down the road, turn around, come in the exit and back into the site. It was really tight. This "largest spot" also did not have 50 amp service. But one thing it did have was lots of mosquitoes. It is basically a fisherman's paradise, and they are leaving day and night, revving up their engines and dragging away their boats. Peace and quiet it is not. We would not return.

We stay here often to visit family. Don't be put off by the approach to the park. The staff is great, the park is neat and tidy, the spaces are wide and long. We tow and have a 40' motorhome but have plenty of room. It's quiet, relaxing and really quite nice.

While this is not the spiffiest park on the planet, we enjoyed our stay here. The spaces were nice, level and wide enough to accommodate our big rig. As far as KOA's go, this is quite nice, as many KOA's we have encountered while crossing the US have been horrible in every way. The owners were delightful and worked hard to make everyone happy. Everything worked well, and we could not hear the freeway noise at all. The train horn was in the distance (but we love trains). We would stay here again.

This was a nice campground. Nothing fancy, but nice large sites for our beast and toad. Southern hospitality started in the office. The sites were level and had beautiful pecan trees. We would stay here again if in the area. Highly recommended.

Without a doubt one of our most favorite campgrounds. If it's concrete and formal landscaping you want, this is not the place for you. Great pull-throughs, shade, peace and quiet. Even their store is great and well-stocked. We have been staying here for years when hardly anyone knew about it. Now it is always busy. You do need a reservation. There is so much to see in this area and even if you don't want to go anywhere, the view of Mt. Whitney is spectacular.

We stay here often while visiting family in the area. While cosmetically it is not the most beautiful of parks, we have found everything else more than acceptable. they office staff has been VERY accommodating, in fact, they have gone out of their way. The sites are fairly level, It is convenient to shopping, the Interstate and Sequoia. We look for quiet and clean. If you want fancy, it is not Seven Feathers.

We have stayed here before and the park has gone downhill. For starters, they are way overpriced. Our site was a back-in, full hookup but nothing but dust and a lot of rocks which we had to move. There is absolutely no maintenance whatsoever. The staff at check-in was abrupt and barely friendly: kind of a 'take it or leave it' attitude. Our picnic table should have been used for firewood several years ago and the firepit looked like it had never been cleaned. Keep in mind that this rate was for off season. Given some TLC this place could be fantastic.

This park was adequate for a few nights in Reno. Our 40' motorhome just fit in the site, even though we paid extra for a deluxe site on the end. There is not much maintenance done here other than mowing the lawn. It's near a casino with shuttle service, but the casino is third rate (Boomtown). If we ever decide to stay in Reno again (which I doubt) we would probably stay here again because the choices for peace and quiet are very limited.

This is an okay park for a one-nighter. It lacks maintenance. Wi-Fi is horrible: it didn't work two years ago when we stayed here, and it still doesn't. The place is clean but nothing to write home about. I doubt we would stay here again.

This was a nice place to stay when visiting Crater Lake. This is an old campground that has been updated to accommodate larger motorhomes, fifth wheels and travel trailers. It is very quiet and rural with a few spots affording a semi-lake view. The owners are on-site (one pleasant and the other quite rude). We had no problems making online reservations and since this park is very busy, it's probably a good idea. The campground was full each night by 7 o'clock.

We have stayed here before and it is a lovely campground with a great staff. There were two drawbacks for us, however. They charge for Wi-Fi and they are very, very limited with site access for big rigs. They plan on expanding the park in the next couple of years, so hopefully it will be more big rig friendly. Most sites are wide and staggered, which affords some privacy, the trees are huge, well-trimmed, there is nice landscaping and it is quiet. We would definitely return as Shingletown is a beautiful area close to Lassen NP and away from the city hustle and bustle of Redding.

This is a perfect park. Quiet, beautiful trees, spotless sites which are extremely long and wide. We had a premium pull-through and it was worth every penny. Each site has its own trash can which is emptied quietly by staff every morning. A paper is at your door when you stumble from your coach. The sites have pavers, beautiful lawn and patio furniture. Those with GPS beware: your GPS will lead you down a road with very low clearance. Get directions from the campground. Do not use GPS!

Even though this park has many semi-permanent residents, it is very obvious that they will not let it get junky. The place is spotless. The staff is very friendly and helpful. With the exception of work traffic in the morning, it is a quiet park. The lawns are well-manicured, there is not a scrap of paper anywhere. We would have given it a 10 but for one thing: the speeders. They seem to think that because the roads are paved, they are city streets.

A spotless park, with some sites overlooking the golf course. It has paved streets (nice and wide), paved sites, paved patios, beautiful landscaping and friendly staff. What more could one want? The biggest pain is having to drive through Spokane city streets on 395 to get here. The most noise you hear is the sound of golf carts.

Date of Stay:

A nice park, especially if you have a waterfront site. Easy access in and out of sites for big rigs. We would have given it a 10, but the Wi-Fi is terrible. There is swimming, fishing, boats to rent, lots of geese and beautiful sunsets. The staff was very friendly, the park was very clean. It's right on the Spokane River which is lovely.
