Called Albuquerque North by KOA, but about a 20-minute ride via freeway to the center of the city. Owners were fairly new, friendly and were working hard to remodel. Employees were extremely helpful and amiable. Landscape maintenance was always being performed. Pool had a retractable cover. During inclement weather, and at night, the pool is closed. The park offers free pancakes and coffee in the "snack shack" on the property, but the food provider is not associated with the owner and gets angry when additional (non free) food is not ordered. Stayed there 8 days but only did the free pancakes and coffee on the first day; it was too irritating. Free shuttle service to nearby Indian casino. Sites on level gravel. Many without shade. Would stay there again.

Overall, a nice county park. About 20 minutes to downtown San Diego. All sites with cement picnic tables and fire rings. Sites are mainly pull-through. Sites are long enough for big rigs but fairly narrow. We have a 35' trailer with slides on both sides and can make it but there is little room remaining in the site. Pull-through sites are split-level and separated by trees and shrubs, making them fairly private and pretty. On the downside, the park seems to allow local transients. They are usually placed in the outer back-in slots. Some are in tents and others in decrepit motor homes and trailers. The rangers seem to have control over them; although, it makes the park less attractive. I would rate this about an 8 without the transients.

Nice county park in the cute, little river-front town of Rio Vista. Sites are all paved and pull-through. Most are slightly sloped and require some leveling blocks. The hookups are on the passenger side and you need to run hoses and wires under your coach. Nice, spacious grassy sites with sandy soil (hence the park name); many with covered dining canopies. Fishing and boating in the adjacent Sacramento River. Boat launch in park. Park rangers patrol frequently during the day, but not much at night.
