This is one of the best Thousand Trails parks. Clean, level sites. Power is OK, hovered at 116V input the whole two weeks, never lost power. Verizon 4G wireless service is very good here, as well as the cell phone service. Wide, long beach about 1.5 miles away, great for running dogs. We have a zone pass, and pay $42 per month.

This is a really nice location, along the Sacramento River. Many sites have a view of the river. Bathrooms are spartan but have hot water. Our biggest complaint, and this is in the winter, is that the power is not adequate for our 40' rig. Waking up this morning, admittedly, the temp outside was 34F, the input power to our rig was 110V. That doesn't leave any power for microwave use, much less heat pump or electric water heat (which we didn't use) and the inside voltage ranges from 108V to 109V with this computer, a refrig and a couple lights running. Went to 102V a couple times and we lost power once for overload. We stayed a week in winter with only 1 or 2 other rigs in the park. The park is at the end of the Rio Vista city power run about a mile out of town. It is quiet, neat, clean, patrolled by a ranger, and otherwise a pleasant place to stay. Just can't imagine that the power even works if it was full and cold outside. If you have very modest power needs, this is a great county park. $18 is senior rate, otherwise it is $30 per night. Boat launch is next to park.

This is a nice private park with adequate facilities, including a few 50amp sites ($3/night extra) but mostly 30 AMP. Power is strong here. The park is kept clean and mowed. The sites are mostly grass/gravel and can be pretty soggy after rains. It is next to the lower Mokelumne River in the Sacramento Delta. The RV park sits several feet below the river protected by the levees. They have a fishing dock and small boat marina but no place associated with the park to put your boat in. The staff is friendly and the general area is mostly farmlands, water (surrounded by 3 rivers), and mostly older (many run-down) tourist businesses. Rio Vista is nearest "real town" about 8 miles away to the west, but it is pretty small. (It has a great Mexican restaurant, though.) A much bigger town is Lodi, about 20 miles to the east. We stay here yearly and plan to return as long as we can each winter. We stayed using our ROD membership.

This is a nice enough private RV Park, situated in a remote area only 7 miles from the Ocean. Our ONLY problem with this park is the VERY POOR POWER. We were in site #22 and most of the time we couldn't even run our microwave unless we were willing to let the power drop to 108V or less. That was with all other power hungry devices turned off. Obviously the wiring size or distances of the wire were inappropriate for the number of sites they offered. This would be a 8 star park if they could improve the power. If I remember, I won't be going back there. For people in tent trailers, tents, and people willing to almost dry camp, this would be a 8 star!

Clean enough park, but the power was poor for such a private club. Most of the time we couldn't use the microwave. The park is undergoing some renovation, but there is no evidence that they are upgrading the power, in which case, things will just get worse. Wouldn't recommend this park if you are in a big rig unless you are willing to forgo using much power.

This membership park was in a nice setting under oak trees next to a large hill in the countryside. However, unless you were tent camping, the power available was horrible. The first night we managed to get a site with a bad pedestal and went the night without power. We moved and then the power when from OK to BAD as more people arrived. We couldn't use our microwave as the power was consistently around 108 to 109 volts (without using any major appliances). Of course, having no sewer didn't help the experience. This park is great if you just want to rough it, but is miserable for big rigs. They need a major upgrade to get me back!

We are Western Horizon Members and this is one of our member parks. We've stayed here a few times. This time was the worst for POWER. We were in a 50 AMP site, but the poor was equally bad using our 30 or 50 AMP connections. We rarely could use our microwave without starting the generator since the power hovered around 106V to 108V at dinner and breakfast time. Using our microwave brings it below acceptable margins for our power management system (below 105V). This is an old park, spared by the recent wildfire, but neat, clean and in a country setting. The management is nice enough. The roads and many hillside sites are narrow for big rigs and difficult to get into and the sites are close to unusable for a big rig because of poor power when the park is close to full. My wife doesn't want to return due to the inconvenience of the low power. We are full-timers.
Date of Stay: May, 2009
We stayed here for about a month (thus the monthly rate.) We have an Internet Satellite on roof and needed to be away from trees. There aren't many sites that would allow that but we found one. Friendly staff, large RV Park with mostly vacation mobile home owners that leave their trailers there year round. We stayed in May, but it would soon get very hot and humid so be prepared for the weather if you stay in the summer. Overall we would stay there again.

Stayed here on Passport America. Campground is reasonable enough, but noisy next to Interstate 10. Our biggest complaint, staying in site 2 next to the office, was the RV Park owner's barking dogs. They chain up their boxer on a a massive 7 foot chain and have another dog in the fenced area with him. They are barking constantly. We heard them up to 11:30 PM and early in the morning. Not only is this cruel to the dog, it is to the visitors. Without the barking dogs, I'd give it a 7 rating. Stay at the back of the campground for more quiet.

Nice clean park with good amenities. I call this a drive-in or asphalt RV park, like so many in Arizona desert. Lots of RVs lined up one after another on asphalt with nice concrete pads. Reasonable dog walk also. Western Horizon members pay for electric ($3).
Date of Stay: December, 2008
Stayed here as an ROD member for free. Very large, clean park with canals for fishing. RV are laid out side by side with adequate spacing. May be too big for some people with so many activities and so many people active all the time. Wifi is only good near the office. Good area next door in field to walk dog off-leash and areas along canals with leash. Main complaint is the smells from the diary next door and the chicken ranch next door. When the wind blows from the Northeast, be prepared! Lots of noisy ducks, geese, herons, etc (including their excrement). It adds to the "wilderness" enviroment.

Only 20 miles from West Yellowstone, but one of the most inexpensive and best parks in the area. We liked the quiet and the great places to walk your dog (including a dog walk in the park, but the road to Henry's Lake is 1 mile and great for dogs). The forest across the street is a great place to view wildflowers in June/July. Dust was NOT bad here as stated by another reviewer in. We stay here every summer and love it. They have special monthly or seasonal rates that make this an inexpensive spot to stay in one of the most beautiful areas of our country. A few of the spots are cramped, but most are spacious.
