I have had the pleasure of staying at this rv park for the last 5 months. Rate reflects the monthly winter rate. If you have any interest in spending the winter on Vancouver Island, Parksville is the place to be and this RV park is the best deal around. $570/month including taxes and unlimited, un-metered 50 amp service. The winter sites are concrete pads with picnic tables. The free WiFi was excellent, free cable TV with lots of channels to chose from. Close to almost everything so the dog and I did a lot of walking and played on the beach every day until March when dogs are banned due to the bird migration. I can't comment on the bathrooms as they are closed during the winter so you have to be self-contained. The laundry was cheap ($1.50 to wash and $1.50 to dry). Only 2 washers, 3 dryers so you have to pick your times. There is a huge playground next door in the municipal park for the kids. I highly recommend Park Sands for the winter.

Very friendly park. No problem getting a site long enough that I didn't have to unhook the Jeep. Pretty little lake with ducks. Had trouble keeping the Labrador out of it. Nicely shaded sites. Yes, there is a little road noise but overall a very nice place. I would come again.

I planned on spending a month in Pahrump and I liked the reviews of this park so when I checked in I paid for the full month. I have stayed in this area before although not at this park. The staff was very friendly. All of the sites are pull through and I had my choice. It took a couple of tries to get far enough forward to hook up. The sites are gravel and most of them have grass. First problem - website said TV was available for a charge. I would have paid the charge but they didn't have any converters available. Second problem - the internet was terrible. If I managed to connect the signal was so slow it was worse than being on dial up. I changed sites in the morning so the internet was more reliable but still slow. The road to the park is dirt and when it rained it was very muddy. I ended up pulling out after 5 nights and I managed to get a refund but the manager was very reluctant to give it to me. If you don't care about park supplied wireless, have a satellite dish and a toad I would recommend this park but it wasn't suitable for my needs. (Part of that is my fault - I carry a scooter instead of a toad and I thought it would be warmer. I ended up driving into town several times and my rig was covered in mud by the time I left)

After reading the reviews I was very disappointed in this RV park. Yes, the pull through sites were good, but if you had the misfortune of having to stay right in the park as I did, it wasn't as nice. The "streets" are very narrow which didn't allow easy back in for my 40' rig. The trees need trimming - I'm afraid to look at the damage. The wireless internet was a joke - I couldn't get it to connect. The TV was OK, but it cost an extra $3.00. The straw that broke this camel's back was the water connection. It was below ground and even if I had managed to connect the hose, it would have had such a kink in it I don't think the water would have flowed. I'm glad I had some in my tank. My recommendation: phone ahead and reserve one of the pull through sites! I will not stay here again without a pull through. The rate reflects Passport America discount.

This is a beautiful RV park on the Sacramento River. Probably one of the nicest parks I've ever stayed in. The owners developed it with big rigs in mind. And they welcome large groups and even have "party tents" available for free if you have 3 more more rigs in your group. The bathrooms were spotless. The wi-fi was good and reasonably priced. No cable hookup, but you could get quite a few channels with the RV antenna. Yes, it can get windy - there was a huge storm when I was there, but it was kind of fun. It is family friendly although there isn't a playground for the kids which is unfortunate. There is a basketball hoop and a soccer net with balls, horseshoes, bocci. All in all, a gorgeous RV park on the Delta, and I will go back again.
