This park is still a bargain for Las Vegas but they did go up in price six dollars per night. Couple things we experience this time not really the parks fault but because of where the park sets it is impacted by it, they were doing some kind of drilling on the on ramp to the 515 this started at 12 o'clock in the morning and went through 230 or three in the morning very annoying but what can you do, ask for a refund?I don't know it only happened one night but there is construction going on there so not to say it won't happen again. Another thing there was a lot of water flowing underneath motorhomes, fifth wheels almost like there was a natural spring, did some checking and found out that hose bibs were either not turned off completely or they needed some tightening took my wrench tighten the packing on two of them immediately stopped completely dry within six hours, I know not everyone carries wrenches to do Park maintenance when they park there but I've done it before for me it's not a big deal and if it eliminates a mess I take care of it and forget it because the maintenance evidently sure didn't see it so anyway they do need to change some hose bibs I did suggest that to somebody can't tell you if they were listening. Park is close to Fremont Street and also convenient to getting out of town on the 515. We have used this park for years and probably will continue to do so the laundry mat is clean very reasonable and usually it is just a day or two stop over for us. Good TV reception no cable. We camp here in a motorhome.

Older park very tight and Narrow road ways for maneuvering. You have to go to the Casablanca Hotel for check in. All hook ups seem to be sufficient and 50 amp service was efficient. It's just if you come in here with a long couch wanting to just spend One night you're probably going to have to unhook your car . Weather permitting I would probably just Boondock and move on the next day . We camped hear in a motorhome.

For Elks members only , very nice park eight pull through's possibly two more that exist but not sure, was told that if the area is full you can Boondock around the perimeter of the Elks Lodge parking as long as you're leaving early in the morning. I understand that as of January 1 2017 , rates are changing Modesto members $20 members at large $25 this is still a bargain since there is not too many options to park in or around Modesto. The access is simple off of Highway 99 very easy to get to definitely follow the instructions if heading east you will actually turn on Pentecost which dead ends into charity way which is kind of like a turnaround where the Elks Lodge is located . As far as the sites they are fairly level on a gravel dirt base which seem to drain real good they have a drywall out there for heavy winter rains but I'm thinking it could be a little dusty in the summertime not sure, winter time rain not a problem no mud exist. You are definitely in a rural area of North Modesto at this time not much out there so your experience is fairly quiet . The dump station is located as you are pulling out all on a asphalt area for a clean no mess experience, very nice, drainage and slope is excellent. The lodge is very nice updated has an excellent lounge and seems to be more in touch with the times then some of the other lodges we have visited. We will stop here again when in the area.

This park is always a good place to stop coming or going. This is not a destination park; it's more like a journey park. Full hook ups, easy in easy out and considering the location if you get further back in the park, it's very quiet; not to say it's not quiet up front, but the further back in the park you park, the more quiet it is, due partly to the idling of the trucks in the overflow parking for trucks. I remember years ago we tried staying out in the overflow parking lot; we were the only ones there about four in the afternoon by 8 o'clock that evening we were surrounded by idling diesel trucks and reefer trucks ( not good ). From that point on, we stayed in the RV park and it is very nice; the $28 a night is priceless for a good nights sleep . This is a casino RV camping, so you do have a casino there for food and it is pretty good; we been in there several times. I hope their rates can stay around this amount; it makes it very reasonable and believe me they get a good crowd in there every night.

We usually camp here early spring or late fall, less people better rates. This campground has always been one of my favorites, very roomy and quite. Keep in mind the sprinklers are still on in late fall and water here is very hard and stains vehicle. I caution people when coming and going late at night or early evening watch out for Deer in the road or crossing. The Park itself has been very well maintained over the years and shows very little ware. Enjoy!!

Excellent park. This time of year the crowds are down. First come first serve park meaning no reservation, but I do hear a rumor that this is going to change. We arrived on a Friday so our sites were limited but if you come on a Monday you can actually get a river front spot. Now in the summer months this may not apply because people are on vacation, kids are out of school, but after Labor Day I think that you could pretty much rely on the previous statement. One thing I might add is the highway runs parallel with the park. Try to get in the middle of the park or riverfront of course, but highway noise during the day can be bothersome specially on the weekends. It can't take away from the fact this park is beautiful, very well-maintained and $15 senior rate of course is a bargain. . Summertime you're right on the river got water access this was just a very nice place to stay. You could pull in here with a 45 foot motorhome and still have plenty a room here for your tow vehicle.

Dusty Dusty Dusty. Maybe it's the time of year, but this could be a pretty park, but at every corner and three times in between it has a little green guy out there saying slowdown and people do drive slow but man is it Dusty; this place makes Quartzsite Arizona look like a clean room. I try to make things positive and still look at all the obstacles, but this park has definitely been used. The electrical poles are all broken, so the electrical boxes are just being held up by the plastic conduit. Utilities can make for an interesting hook up; some are at the very back so be prepared for that, but overall the park has a pretty atmosphere about it. It's just that it's got a run down infrastructure. I will choose not to camp here; next time would much rather stay in the forest campground right up the road even though it has no utilities, all paved, very nice, no DUST . I might add that we used Passport America to get this rate. At one time, we had thought that we might like to be Thousand Trails members. In fact, we even had people that were going to give us their membership. All we had to do was transfer names and pay the yearly fees. We chose not to - good decision. I tried to be honest in my review and overall this is a pretty campground, but drive slow through the park. There are constant signs for a reminder and make the best out of it; we still had a good time.

This is camping for Elks members only . I consider this urban camping at its best. We stayed here five days; it was convenient to relatives house and also attractions in Seattle. If at all possible try to get the sites further back from the main street traffic; traffic is somewhat steady till late in the evening. There's also some walking residents that cut through the parking lot from the apartment complex behind the Elks Lodge. Sometimes you question first impressions, but there were no issues with anybody and everything was quiet and safe . I did ask the bartender inside the Elks, if they'd ever had any issues with vandalism. He said in the three years he had been there he had not experienced any so that was a good sign. Remember to call ahead as there are only eight sites there and it seems like people tend to stay for longer periods than what I normally see. I would try to get sites one through five if possible. There was a vacancy when we got there on a Friday which worked out for us, but nobody left till we left five days later. All utility hookups are in back of your parking spot which is a back-in, so plan accordingly. You may need longer sewer hoses, water hoses etc. but everything worked fine for us. I would say this, if you plan on camping here make sure you are comfortable with backing up in tight spots on a incline. Your spots are level, but you're on a grade backing in; tow car hook up and disconnect can be an issue. We used the fire lane for a short period of time. I would stay here again if in the area.

A members only camping facility, but for Elks members this was set up very nice. All spots were pull-throughs, very convenient to I-5. You are camped on a dirt with a light rock base, so it could be dusty at times or muddy depending on weather. Very quiet at night, you do hear a train in the off distance, but did not seem to be bothered by it. We would definitely use this again if in the area.

We like this park, very nice, clean and I think where we were parked in the park, we were out in the front spots that made it a little more convenient and very quiet. I did do what the last person said about the owners; you cannot find two nicer people to accommodate you during your stay. Even though this is a mobile home/ RV park, the more permanent people here were very nice everything was clean and tidy to the fact that it's something I'm not used to seeing. The weather while we were here was extremely good, no rain. I think when you're in this type of environment and you don't have everything wet; it gives you more of a clean feeling, but I think this park was so well taken care of that would not make a difference. We would definitely stay here again . There is one thing that I am finding out more and more lately is that the cable supplied by the RV parks and this one falls into that category you need a cable box. You just don't hook your cable up anymore; you have to put a box inside your motorhome. I am going to have to work on making this for a quick disconnect and connect, so that we can use the park cable. I still don't travel with a satellite and don't see doing it for the near future.

Very nice elks lodge RV place to park. You have six back ends that basically back up to the golf course but you're far enough away that I don't even think a terrible hacker golfer could hit your RV, so please don't let that be a deterrent for not visiting this lodge. Shared water, 30 amp plug-in and you are parked on grass . I only have one complaint and it seems to be my complaint on all these smaller parks that have multi use meaning not all our RVers, it's dust control you have a long driveway coming in and it amazes me the speed people can get up to knowing that all they have to do at the end of the driveway is parked their car, REALLY. I would say my recommendation to this would be get the site furthest away from the driveway which would be number one and that would help a little bit but overall this is a very very nice place to visit and I would definitely stay here again .

Since I last reviewed this park I'm gonna just give the pros and cons. We stayed a week. Pros, very clean park, very convenient park to surrounding areas, very quiet park, laundry room very clean, rates are right in line I think is a good rate. The people staying here are either permanents or seasonal no problems. Cons, I really can only think of one and it's not the fault of this park, but it seems to be the whole area. There is a distinct smell that when the wind changes that comes from the paper plant, that either is a propane gas or a methane gas or sewage all combined, but it is enough to make you stand at attention. This is my biggest complaint. You have no indication of when it's going to happen or what time, but it is definitely a stench you want forget and it could last up to hours.

I reviewed this park almost a year ago to the day, and a few changes that I need to talk about that were on the positive side. The dust wasn't nearly as bad in the camping area because they had watered it and the grass/weeds were actually green and mowed. This made for a more dust controlled environment. The maintenance workers and so forth for the fairgrounds, still raced through the gravel area and they could've slowed down a little bit more for a more dust controlled environment. But overall our stay was pleasant. The 50 amp power worked great. The water pressure you definitely need a regulator, runs at about 95 psi. The dump area was clean overall. I'll come back if need be. Just drive in slow, and exit slow for the enjoyment of others.

This is an older park. Doesn't mean that it's bad, just that for the price they charge, which I think is on the high side for casino park camping, they should have a cable package. Pull through sites are on the short side but manageable, and the sewer is all the way to the back which, if you're pulling a small trailer or car, you don't want to unhook. You are probably going to have to back up in the morning to dump your sewer, or extend out 40 feet of hose. We had a 30 amp pull through. Normally if weather permits, we use the Boondock area out in the front of the casino. Very seldom do we come by in the late summer where the heat is so unbearable, you have to have electrical. But I can say this the park is completely full at night, so I must be the odd person out, on my views on price and so on and so forth, because they have no problem filling the place at night. We will use this park only if the weather is too unbearable to utilize the front (no hook-ups) parking lot.

I personally like this type of camping and if the prices would stay at this rate this is all I need. Eight spots, four hose bibs, 30 amp power. You are parked on a gravel/dirt combination. Remember drive in slow and leave slow to respect your neighbors. Some people just don't get it, even though they are Elk members. Road noise was not an issue for us. Maybe it's because we're deaf, but we actually shut the air off and open the windows at night and I was just fine. Easy access to highway 84 but far enough away that you don't hear the freeway noise. We will stay here again if need be while traveling through.
