This is a brand new site and very clean, I did not see any permanent residents aside from the owner's very well maintained motor home with beautiful garden. This was a stopover for us and worked out very well. Easy pull through sites with nice hookup boxes. Only downsides are lack of shade (wasn't a problem on a cloudy rainy day) and road noise from I5. As others have mentioned hopefully it will 'grow up' to be a Shady, quiet RV park in a decade. A friend used the shower facilities and said they were spotless.

Date of Stay:

We stayed here twice: once on the way to and once on the way back during our trip, as an overnight place. The north/lower side of the site is excellent, RIGHT up against the water, lots of huge trees and shade. You are parking on grass. This side has water/electric only. The south or upper side of the park where the full hookups are, is not so great. Those spaces are super close together, trees block the view of the water, and at the far end, there's one or two fairly seedy permanent tenants with a dog. It's also hard to get in and out of the spaces at the very south end, as it gets narrow. The dump site frequently has a sprinkler running near it, soaking your car and RV, and the questionable full timers are near it. I would skip it and dump elsewhere. If you just need an overnight without full hookups, or have something big enough to go without dumping for a weekend, this is a great place as it cools down more in the evening than elsewhere in Sac, due to the proximity of the water. Just watch out for mosquitos at dusk. The spaces at the very north end are very private and surrounded by trees. The people in the office are friendly and cordial. I was able to receive good Wi-Fi from my trailer a few hundred feet from the office. The park is very quiet at night, no road noise as it is well off the highway on a river frontage road.

Date of Stay:

We stayed in the Sycamore Lane section with water/electric, a large group of us with two RVs and 3 or so tents. I would not recommend sites 6-10 as they are not pull through and very small, with no shade. They are new spots that they made from empty space and have only saplings planted at this time. Spaces 1-5 looked like a better bet and we wished we had gotten those. The other spaces with the full hookups looked quite nice. Probably one of the biggest attractions is the swimming hole, a deep area in the river that flows through the property with a large open grass 'beach'. It's a great place for kids to play and blow off steam. The bath house is located in the permanent resident section, and the permanent mobile homes all looked very nice and well kept up. There was a sign on the bathhouse saying it was to be renovated this year or the next. For now they are just basic concrete stalls with old curtains as someone has mentioned. There is one bench outside the stall to stage your stuff. As others have said this looks like a park that is continually improving. We would stay here again, though probably in one of the river front sites instead. Check the map on their website for more info. The area is very nice.
