We enjoyed our stay at this RV resort. We stayed here during the Amador County Fair. This was super convenient and just a short walk to the fairgrounds. The back gate to the RV park opens onto the parking lot entrance to the fair. The park itself is nice: two small ponds for fishing, two pools (one just for adults) and a small little park. We stayed in one of the waterfront premium sites: nice, level and wide with a picnic table. Our site did not have much shade, but most of the sites were quite shady. I would have given them a higher rating if the playground was better: the play structure was small and a little dated. We would come back again.

Probably one of the nicest RV resorts that we have visited. Nice man-made lakes and beach. Lots of fun things to do: paddle boats, canoes, swimming at the beach area, nice pool and patio area. Also, the playground had a nice, big play structure. Casino right next to the RV resort for dinners, gambling, etc. One thing they could have improved: have some activities for the kids. We were there for Easter weekend and thought they should have had an easter-egg hunt for the kids. Would definitely come back given the opportunity.

We really enjoyed our stay at this facility. The campground hosts were very nice, and they put on a fun night of activities for the family and kids - dancing, karaoke, and prizes. The hosts seems to be putting a lot of money into the place - they had a GREAT place structure for the kids. Our kids played there almost the whole time we were on site. However, the pool was closed and it was a little noisy as they were putting a new water feature in and a new mini golf area. Also, since we came during an off season, there was no fish stocked in the pond. During the peak season, you can take the skunk train from there. Also pretty close to Mendicino and Caspar beach. We hope to visit again once they are completed with all their renovations. There is great potential for this park.

This is a relatively new RV park in Paso Robles. The sites were level and each site has picnic bench that sits on a grassy area that is shared between 4 campsites (no fire pits) - great for large groups camping together. We stayed in a standard site. The premium and deluxe sites offer a little more privacy and sit on concrete pads. They have a game room with a pool table and a ping pong table and the pool area is well kept. For those that have kids, there is a water park right across the street (The Ravine) that is walking distance from the RV park. Also, the Firestone winery is walking distance (pathway through the vineyard) for tastings as well as other wineries very close by. Also, relatively close to Pismo and Avila beach, Morrow bay and Heast Castle. The staff was friendly and helpful, although the store hours were limited (closed by 5pm). Security was there to escort us to our site when we arrived even after the office was closed. Only downfall is that the sprinklers come on during the evenings on certain nights so if you don't store all your belongings, they get WET! We will return again.

This campsite has a nice woodsy feel to it - Redwoods throughout the park and nice grassy areas. The playground is new, but small, but the campsite itself is flat and is great for bike riding and scooters. Downside is that there is no pool, no general store, or any planned activities, except for storytelling on (Saturday only). The road there was also pretty tight to maneuver especially with a 34 foot motor home towing a toad. We will probably not return primarily for that reason. This is a nice campsite if all you want to do is relax and enjoy being outdoors, but not a whole lot to do otherwise. If you have a big rig, you should consult the campsite as to the best way there.

We stayed here over the 4rth of July weekend and there were lots of fun activities including: relay races, wine tasting, smores, band playing,ice cream parlor, ping pong, pool, wall climbing. The staff was friendly and the camp coordinators were really enthusiastic about the activities and would drive by and remind the campers about the upcoming activities of the night. The downside of the park is that all the activities including the pool, lake, general store were all the act are about a 10-15 min walk from the campsite and is pretty steep. Also the site we stayed in was pretty tight and narrow - we were not able to lounge in front of our awning, however there are a number of sites that are roomier. In addition, the water pressure was not very strong. We ended up having to use our water pump to get enough water pressure for a decent shower. The campsite has a nice woodsy feeling to it - lots of surrounding redwoods, but the campsite itself has some pretty steep hills and is not ideal for bike riding or scooters. We would return if we were able to get a better RV site.

This campsite is on Don Pedro Lake and is good for use if you want to utilize the lake. The campsite itself has a woodsy setting. Each site has a fire pit and bench. The site we had (A8) was relatively private and had lots of shade and protection from the wind. The website is very good and provides pictures and a rating for each site indicating whether there is shade, whether the sites are level, etc. Downside to the campsite are as follows: Marina/general store is about 1.5 miles from the boat launch, 1.25 miles from the campsite which is inconvenient especially if you are towing a boat; hilly and steep in areas -not toddler/kid friendly; no pets and no view of the lake from the campsite. Campsite itself was pretty nice, but the inconvenience of having the boat launch so far from the marina/store and campsite was problematic and inconvenient. We will probably not return for that reason.

This is a great RV park for boating and fishing and is right on the marina of Lake Berryessa in Napa. It is located right on the water with a fair number of sites on the waterfront. There are a number of spots that offer good shade, but many of the sites do not have any cover. Basically a parking lot right next to the waterfront, but it is convenient for those who are using the lake for recreational boating. Each site has a BBQ and picnic table, but no fire pits. Guests may use their guest slips on a first come first serve basis or you can rent your own slip at a minimal cost at the marina. They also have a pool and a swim/picnic area. During the peak season, there is a restaurant and an ice cream shop on site within a 10 min walk. Right next to the marina there is a general store and a snack shop. This is our campground of choice when we go to Lake Berryessa.

The campground has lots of activities for kids and is family oriented. Some of the activities include the following: train rides, jumping pillow, bike rentals, bucking horse and mini golf, but all for an additional price. Pretty steep considering the fact that this is probably one of the most expensive places we have stayed at: $100/night! Also has other activities like group campfire with smores, skits, movie night, bingo. There are also a few beaches close by: Manresa and Sunset beach, the Santa Cruz Boardwalk and Capitola are 15-20 minutes away if you want to get off site and do a day trip. The site itself was just ok. It was level, with a fire ring and bench, but no vegetation or privacy between sites. I guess I was expecting something spectacular after spending the $100/night. However, the sites on the perimeter are much nicer with views of the trees/redwoods. They also have about 8-10 premium sites that include a Gas BBQ, patio, chairs, wood stove. If not for the price and the poor RV site location that was assigned to us, I would have rated this at least an 8. The kids loved it, I would go back again begrudingly.

This is a decent park to stay at if you plan on doing other activities such as fishing and boating. There are no waterfront sites however there are a few sites that have a view of the lake. The marina is at least 1/4 mile away and not walking distance but the campsite is relatively close to the boat ramp. Our site was tight. There was not even enough room to sit on the side of our motorhome under the awning and a little dangerous for our little ones; however there are a few sites that are quite nice - check the website and with the person accepting reservations.

This was our first time staying at this facility and we really enjoyed it. We stayed at the "old campsite" which is dirt-paved and is surrounded by nice redwood trees which gives off the aurora of being out in the woods vs. in a parking lot. Each campsite has a fire ring and a bench. This is a really nice campsite for families - there is a relatively new playground, activities like face-painting and hula hooping, a petting area (donkeys, goats, rooster and duck) and on the perimeter of the campsite there are cows and sheep. The pool was clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. The roads were nice and wide - our daughter even learned how to ride her bike there. I would say the only downside of this campground is the smell - we always felt like we may have accidentally stepped into something, but it was bearable and expected based on previous reviews. We plan on returning for memorial day weekend.

This was by far our best RV experience. We stayed here for 5 nights. We had a campground right on the riverfront which was nice and relatively private with high shrubs between each campsite with beautiful scenic views of the Sacramento River. Although there is no playground, there is a nice grassy areas for the kids to play right before you hit the riverfront. Nice for fishing, and relaxing. Quiet, clean, pet friendly and with friendly staff. Close to Turtle Bay Exploration Park and Museum, Sundial Bridge, Shasta Lake, Shasta Caverns and about 1 hour away from Burney Falls. The campsite itself is on a concrete pad, with a picnic bench but no fire pit on campsite (Fire pits are located in a common area). Some sites have nice grassy areas. We had an issue with our reservation; but still enjoyed the RV park so much we rated it high and would definitely come back again.

This is a nice new RV park. There are nice ocean views, and the park is less than a mile to El Capitan State Beach. The spots are paved concrete with bushes that separate each campsite. There is also a picnic table and fire ring at every site. The only negative thing that we found is that there are no close restaurants nearby except for the deli at El Capitan Canyon (resort campground that is walking distance from Ocean Mesa) which was good but expensive. There is also a new play structure and an large grassy area for pets. We did not use any of the other amenities since we were just passing through. Overall, it is nice, but pricey for an RV campsite but we would still like to come back again when we have more time to enjoy it.

We stayed in the upper luxury lot. This site was spacious and there was enough room to park another vehicle. The campsite was quiet and clean, and is relatively close to both Legoland (20 min) and Seaworld (30 min). The only downfall of this rv site is that there is no picnic tables outside, however, there is nice shrubery between each of the spots. There is a park close by where there is access straight from the resort, which is a plus. I would not recommend staying in the lower area, the slots were a lot tighter although much closer to the pool, laundry and bathrooms. Also, the rv resort is right off of the freeway so you can hear the freeway traffic.
Date of Stay: November, 2007
The actual site itself is a large parking lot. The sites are level, they have a nice picnic table outside, Wi-Fi/cable accessable, the staff people are very friendly and helpful. There are no frills about this RV resort, but the shuttle service to Disneyland was very convenient and pick up/drop offs about every hour or so. It beats dealing with the parking lot at Disneyland! They also have tickets at a discounted prices. The only downfall is that it is accross the street from a school, and there are no convenient places to eat, buy groceries or walk to. We had a good experience there and served the purpose that we needed. We would stay here again when we go back to Disneyland.
