This is our 3rd stop at Blue Heron, and we will be back again soon. We love the fact that it is off the freeway and out of town. Peaceful, quiet, great scenery, on the river, what more could you ask for. Level concrete pads angled for river views. All pull-ins. Trees next to the sites are young and have a ways to go to provide a lot of shade. As others have said the road is snakey but is no problem with our 43 plus toad. WiFi/phone is not so good because of the location. If you really need it, drive back a mile or so. Garbage is picked up at your site every morning (don't leave out overnight). Great for bird watching. Saw osprey, owls and of course the blue herons. Owners Jim and Kathy couldn't be more accommodating. Help you park, hookup if needed and always ready for good conversation. Horses Easter and Cowboy have free run of the place and might make you a visit. This is not an entertainment resort but a laid-back kind of place. Great to unwind and relax. We will return.

This is a nice place to stop-over for the night. Check in is very easy and you choose your own spot. Paved roads, gravel pads, hardly any leveling needed. Hook-ups convenient. All pull-throughs. Not a very old park so the trees and plants have a ways to go yet but will make nice barriers between the spots. An easy walk to the casino or you can call for the shuttle. It will drop you off at your RV at night. We will stay again.

Checked in with no reservations. The campground was not at all full so there was not a problem. They were able to accommodate my request for a specific spot. It was so hot we really needed the electric hookup. Friendly staff. Of course it's a desert location so don't expect green grass and a lot of trees. Convenient to the casino and the river. You have access to the pool also. Never looked at the restrooms and didn't use the shower. Will definitely stay here again.

I guess I'm the only one to review this campground that's not too excited about it. We have stayed here before and said we would not stay again, but traveling with friends who wanted to stay, we did so. I cannot fault any amenitie; those are OK-- big spots, orange trees, nice pool, etc. But the attitude of the check-in people needs improving. They're very cold and not welcoming at all. The park was not full at all, maybe 15 percent. For some reason the girl put us in spots 2 and 3, right next to the exit and the side road, (Edison Rd). I know, I should have asked for a spot in the back,away from the road, but I didn't think she would put us up front with a nearly empty park. I thought the traffic would die down at night (big rigs hauling oranges). It did, a lot later. But started again before 5:30. And you get freeway noise. And the trains! There must have been 4 or 5 that night. Needless to say we won't be staying here again. If you take your hearing aids out at night or have a very soundproof coach you'll do OK here.

This is a great RV park. We come here every year. All the staff are very friendly; if you need anything, just ask. Nice pool, good restrooms and showers. Green grass, lake, fishing, casino, clean, what more could you ask. Only one thing--cable TV. But we don't mind. Nothing on anyway. We'll keep coming back again and again.

This is our favorite spot in this area. You could stay in a casino parking lot and be close to them, or you can stay here and be on the river. Beach spots have no hookups but have a shelter over the table, palm trees and a fire ring. You are only 25' from the water. Its fun to watch the boats, jetski's and the casino tour boats go by. If you rent a ski, you can bring it right up on the beach to your campground. Have never used a hookup spot, they are further from the water, we like the beach. Feed the ducks, watch the rabbits, kick back and do nothing or go to the casinos (5 minutes). Bathrooms are a little old, but fairly clean. Shower water must be adjusted to make it warm, but is no problem. Can be crowded and hot in the summer: that's why we go in the spring and fall. They do have a laundromat. Of course we will be back again and again.

Nice campground. Spacious sites, fishing, boating. A little bit pricey. Regular site, $26. Not bad but were charged $7 more for the toad. Not right since it was "towed" in. Check-in was bad. I didn't have a reservation since we didn't know we were going to stop here. Girl seemed to be frustrated in finding us a place (there were plenty). The other girl was busy listening to her cell phone ring and being with the security guard. People lined up behind us. Didn't open the other window. Had a spot where we could observe the kiosk. Got worse later in the day. Wouldn't stay here in the summer. They have a HUGE overflow area. Way to many people for me. Check it out for yourself. Off season for me.

This is our third visit to this park. A lot of upgrades have been done. New paving on interior roads, a lot more grass, and redesigned upper sites. Check in was easy and people were friendly. Bathrooms and pool area were very clean. We had a riverfront pull-through site. Easy to level. If you want peace and quiet, this is the place. The only reason we didn't give it a 10 is because the sewer connection is way at the back of your site. If you pull up enough to get your tow car in without unhooking, you will need a "very" long hose. But just unhook and put the toad in front. We will visit again.
