Really clean, well-organized park. Good option for full hook-ups including 50 amp and cable near the beaches and marina. Friendly and helpful office staff; friendly fellow campers. From chatting with a few seemed like there were a number of regulars, and we may become regulars too! No amenities, i.e., no pool, no playground, dog walk area is just the grass along with entrance drive, but clean, level concrete pads each with a wooden picnic table on a paved patio, and a strip of grass between the sites. A tall, thick hedge surrounds the park which helps cut the wind and also road noise. Walking distance to several good restaurant options. We'll certainly stay here again.

Cracked Asphalt, no shade, scary neighbors. Yup, it's a casino RV park in Reno. However, as those go it's one of the better ones. Well laid-out sites and park, all services, and a great casino. Nice restaurants in the casino, good pool, good gambling. OK Wi-Fi. Bright lights in the campground but better to be secure. This isn't the forest.

We live in San Francisco and were looking for a spot nearby for Memorial Day weekend on short notice. Needless to say all the nicer campgrounds were taken so we ended up here. Very clean, narrow gravel sites, mostly level, very friendly camp host, efficient and friendly staff. Many full-timers who must be working in the area; very quiet and everyone well-behaved. Two rows of grass sites in the front would be nicer than the remaining gravel sites except that they're all grass - no pad and no patio. Basically no reason to stay here unless you're visiting someone in the area, or want the proximity to BART to commute into San Francisco. But clean and well-run with nice folks.

We stayed here twice as an overnight stop at the beginning and end of a trip to Southern California. Easy access from I-5. There are only two small areas of spaces for overnight stay, which are a little nicer than the spaces for long-term. Very well laid out hookups and (gravel) spaces. Some low trees and branches but mostly big-rig friendly. Nice office staff and nice amenities. Kids playground, three clean pools. Good Wi-Fi for payment. Only downside is the constant noise from highway 126.

Excellent park for access, amenities, service, cleanliness. This was our third time here and we opted for one of the three "luxury" sites with more space, a picnic table with a little gazebo for shade. We didn't really take advantage of it though as its too cold at night this time of year and with no fires allowed too chilly to sit outside. I'd certainly recommend at least a "deluxe" site for a picnic table and a tiny trellis to provide the illusion of privacy from your neighbors. Nice but small pool and spa area, laundry too small for the park but still nice to have one. The casino is a nice one, with several good restaurant options. Old Town Temecula is worth several visits, and winery tours nearby. We use this park as a central spot from which to visit family and friends all over Southern California : San Diego is under an hour, Newport or Laguna are a hour plus, Anaheim two hours. Definitely a good weekend or destination park.

Yes it's right next to the I5 Freeway, but it's the nicest of the rv campgrounds in Anaheim. Clean, well-run, and everything works. There is no reason to be here except for Disney but we appreciated how close it is, clean, nice office staff and good hookups.

Nice, well-maintained campground with a variety of sites. We had a "premium" pull-through site with trees shading our site and decent amount of lawn around us. The "regular" pull-through and back-in sites looked very crowded. Even driving past them was iffy as many had to park their tow vehicles in the roadway since the sites are too small. Nice looking pool, kids playground, small stocked fishing pond and a petting zoo: families would enjoy this as a destination. Wi-Fi was OK from our site but I can see how trees would block some areas. Our (gravel) site was perfectly level, but I can see how not all would be. The best sites for views and privacy are back-in sites along the back overlooking a valley, unfortunately those don't have sewer, only w/e. We'd definitely go back for the "natural" feel and the very friendly and helpful staff. Don't come here if you prefer a flat, concrete pad with no trees.

One of the best campgrounds we've been to. great location on Hwy 1 with a path to the beach, surrounded by open space. Four different types of RV sites, all with hookups and picnic tables but no fire pits. All are somewhat close together but enough room for slides and awnings in most sites. The sites are OK, but the resort and the location are the real reason to go there: the bathrooms have a dry sauna and a communal fireplace, and upscale amenities. The resort also has a spa with massage therapists, a nice restaurant/bar, and a gift/convenience store. Also a play area for kids. They host outdoor barbecue on Friday and Saturday nights and weekend breakfast/brunch at an outdoor kitchen. Folks are friendly, and a lot of folks are there for the outdoor activities nearby: road biking, hiking, windsurfing, etc.

Very clean, well-maintained park. Friendly, helpful camp hosts. Level concrete sites with picnic tables, easy access, easy hookups. No trees, no fire pits, and no "nature" other than well-trimmed grass between spaces. Main reason to stay there is to visit town of Napa - we walked to Wine Train and also to restaurants in downtown across the river.

Disappointing campground: if the promise and the price wasn't so great I would have rated it higher. Narrow sites with little privacy, part concrete and part sand on the "premium, beach front" sites. The rest are all sand. None are very level: most people's front tires were off the ground. Nice amenities: pool and laundry, beach, playground, market, passable fitness center in the nearby marina. Didn't use the showers or bathrooms so can't speak to that. Cable TV not working; good WiFi. In the flight path of John Wayne airport night and day. Good if you want to be in the middle of Newport Beach area, or have children and want a self-contained "resort," otherwise overpriced.

Other reviews are accurate. This is an asphalt parking lot. There is virtually no shade; the few parking islands have a lonely tree growing through a base of, yes, asphalt. The WiFi is good if you have a line of sight to the office. You have access to the pool, and there's a (small) casino next door. We camped here Labor Day weekend, arriving late Friday night. We were surprised to find so many spots available, but assumed it would fill up on Saturday, nope. Unlike other casino RV campgrounds this one gives little reason to want to visit or stay. Even the lake nearby isn't an asset as you can't see the lake from the campground, only the dusty construction site and the depressed area around the casino. The pull-through sites are back-to-back, and the hookups are in the middle, posing a problem for longer rigs. There are several long-term residents, but mostly empty spaces. I only give this place a six because it has full hookups and everything works well, but no reason to stay here unless you really need to gamble.

Pretty good (but not great) option if you want to be in Vegas near the strip. Everything seems a little run down, as if this used to be a nicer place and is just coasting. We had a "premium" space which just meant we had a strip of grass between us and the neighbors, and we faced the mini-golf and pool area. Still no privacy as there are no hedges or other barriers to divide the spaces; the non-premium spaces have only gravel and less space. Fitness room is a joke; mostly empty carpeted room so good for stretching only

The wildly varying ratings for this park reflect the different users' desires, not the park. If you're looking for level, concrete pads, cable hookups, a swimming pool and entertainment this is not the place. If you're looking for a state park feeling with tall trees, partial hookups, separation between tents and RVs, easy access to a large state park, this is your spot. Two large open grassy areas for tents, RVs are in tight "pinwheel" circles, with mostly shared hookups. Half-mile walk to Big Bear trail in Pt. Reyes; lots of good cycling roads around. Each site has picnic table and a fire ring with grate. Sites are gravel but level. We will make it a regular spot due to easy one-hour drive from the Bay Area.

Great campground if you're looking for full service, clean sites and facilities, pleasant and responsive staff, and a nice setting. they have spacious sites with both pull-through and back ins, full hookups, a great clubhouse, clean pool and two whirlpools. Frequent shuttle to the casino - there's no way to walk to the casino or the store. Only complaints is that there's no shade - the trees between sites will be nice when they mature in 10 - 15 years. Would also be nice if they created jogging/bike trails through the extensive grounds of the casino/campground. Nice getaway even if you're not a gambler!

Date of Stay:

Great option for an overnight near I-5. Sites are all pull-through, level, gravel and concrete curbs. Full hook-ups, strong WiFi ($4 day after 30 mins free). Clean if older bathrooms, two small but clean pools. Each site has picnic tables on a strip of grass between sites but no fire pit. Tall trees shade most sites, and a high hedge blocks the wind and views on most sides making you forget you're just off the freeway. Very nice folks at the office and maintenance staff. Price reflects 10% FMCA discount. We'll definitely stop here on future trips up and down I-5.
