Interesting park to review. It is carved out of a hill next to US 101 just across from the ocean. Some of the spaces are actually surrounded by the hillside. The plus is that many of the spaces have great views of the ocean. The minus is the road noise from US 101. It appears to be a fairly old park but is well maintained. Many of the spaces have been upgraded to 50 amp service. Most sites are long enough for big rigs and tow vehicle and most are very wide, allowing for good spacing between neighbors. There are many trees and bushes but appear to be well trimmed so as not to impact rigs. Roads are dirt/gravel and sites are dirt/gravel/grass. Ours was very level and allowed for satellite use. They have cable and free Wi-Fi (very slow). Staff was very friendly. Verizon service was very weak. Walkway to beach, but you do have to cross US-101. Views are just fantastic. Great value.

Basic park right next to the river. An open grass field with paved spaces and paved roads. Nice views of the river with back-in spaces available for river views. Spaces could be a little longer to hold big rigs and tow vehicle. Paved pad could be a little wider as it just held our rig allowing our jacks and tires to be on pavement. No WiFi. The downside of the park is the road noise from US-101 as it is only 100 feet from the first row of spaces. During our stay it was not distracting. All the parks in town seem about the same and are also close to 101. This park took the PA rate for our 3 night stay so a very good value for a full hook-up pull thru site. Nice stop over to see the redwood parks.

Park is mainly for permanents and they are located in two different areas of the park. Up front there are a handful of spaces available for travelers. There is one pull thru (space 17). Half the sites are concrete, the rest gravel. Spaces have great views of the mountains and valley and there are lots of trees. Interior roads are paved. Road into park is steep with a couple of sharp turns but was not a problem if you take it slow. Trees were not a factor, nor were they in the park. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Wi-Fi is free and worked great during our stay. Highly recommend getting space 17, pull through, for the great view and the ability to use satellite TV. Very close to a great wine tasting region. This is a nice little park that I would recommend.

Park is a little tight with its spaces. Our space was just long enough to handle our 40 foot fifth wheel and we had to park our truck next to it, as there is no roadway parking. Backing in was a little bit of a challenge as the interior roads are a little narrow. Many permanent trailers here but generally nicely kept up. Roads are paved, sites are either gravel or grass, fairly level. No 50 amp service, no cable, but free Wi-Fi that is very fast. Many trees around the park so you can get shade, but there ares some sites where you can use your satellite dish, just make sure to ask and check it out (we forgot to do this). OK park is you want to stay in the east bay area of San Francisco. You are a bit of distance from everything but with the BART station 20 miles away you have full access to San Francisco without much of an issue. Based on what is available in the SF area, I think this is a good place to stop.

Very nicely maintained park. Right off of US-94 alternate so you do get some road noise, but it was minimal inside the trailer. Roads are gravel and half the sites are concrete with the others being gravel. Sites are adequate in length as the roadways are very wide to park your vehicle in front of your space. Spacing between sties is OK, but I would prefer a little more space. They do have trees between each space and they could use some trimming on the lower branches as it can impact your slides. As the spaces as arranged it allowed for satellite use even with the trees. Wi-Fi was free but did not work well during our visit, very slow. Very clean park, nice laundry and TV room. Great overnight stop, especially at the PA rate.

Park is centrally located to town. Appears to be a newer park. Very nicely maintained. Roads are paved, sites are crushed gravel with concrete patio slab. Minimal trees. Pull thru sites are opposing so that the service area serves two sites, which means your neighbor is very close to you and on your door side you are facing your other neighbor. Sites are long enough for big rigs and towed vehicles, ours was very level. Area is quiet except there are train tracks in the back that feed into a rail hub, so there is train traffic and some train horn noise. Wi-Fi is free and worked OK during our stay. They have an extensive cable TV channel list but we used satellite which is no problem getting a signal. It is probably the nicest park in town and they charge for it. Without discount the rate for a pull thru is over $50, which I think is way high for the area. We used it as an overnight stay and bit the bullet on the price.

Park is centrally located to all downtown activities. The light rail system stops in front of the park. Large park, very nicely maintained. Roads and sites are paved with grass and a tree between each. Trees are nicely trimmed and do not impact rigs. Our site was level but could have been a little longer as our truck hung out a little into the roadway. Sites have adequate spacing but you do feel a little close. They do have some very long pull thrus, which I believe the nightly fee increases. There is a train horn a few times a day, but it is in the distance. Wi-Fi is free and worked fine during our stay. They do have cable with a good variety of channels. We used a satellite dish and was no problem setting up with the trees. Just mention you have satellite and they will put you in a site with good line of sight. As with most KOA's it is my opinion it is over priced, but you are in the downtown area and it is a nice park with many amenities.

Park is located about 5 miles from entrance to Arches National Park. Smaller park and the spaces are a little tight in length and width. Roads and sites are gravel. Our site was level and long enough to just hold our 40 foot fifth wheel with space next to rig to park truck. There is a large tree between each site with grass. Trees were trimmed but still close to the rigs due to the small space between sites. Staff knows which sites are satellite friendly so ask when you make reservation. They do have an extensive cable channel list. Wi-Fi is free and worked fine during our stay. Overall a nice park to stay at and appears to be one of the nicer ones in the area. Price is a little expensive but this is a high demand area.

Park is not very large. It is well maintained. Roads are dirt/gravel as are the sites. Mixture of pull thru's and back-ins. Hard to determine how long the pull thru sites are as there are no lines or markers indicating where the site starts and ends. Space was long enough for our 40 foot fifth wheel and our truck parked sideways behind. Spacing between sites is a little close and there is a large tree between each site (trimmed so not an issue). Our site had grass between the next one, but with everything being dirt/gravel the park is very dusty with the wind blowing and cars driving by. If you want to use your satellite you need to let them know as the trees can impact use of a dish. They knew exactly what sites were satellite friendly. Wi-Fi is free but was extremely slow or not working during our stay. Verizon service was almost non-existent. The park is about 10 miles from the Capitol Reef Visitor Center. Friendly staff, good value, friendly staff.

Park is closest to Bryce National Park and the shuttle stop for the park bus is right in front of the RV park. Park has two distinct sections. The front section is amongst established pines so using a satellite dish could by iffy. Also you will need to be careful of the trees when driving the interior roads. The back section is all rock/dirt with a small pine between each site. Main roads are paved with everything else being dirt/rock. It can be a little dusty! We were in the back section and the sites were huge. You can easily park a large rig and your toad next to it with still a lot of space left over. Our site was very level. Wi-Fi is free but really slows down as the park fills up. They do have a very extensive lineup of cable channels. Ruby's is the main player in Bryce with a hotel next door, restaurant, grocery store, gift store, liquor store and more. Very nice park to visit Byrce but it is a little pricey.

Park is a little tight for bigger rigs. Most sites are small with only a few long enough to handle larger rigs. You do have enough room between sites to open your awnings. Roads are paved but have many turns and are a little narrow. Some tree issues. Spaces are dirt and rock. The best thing about the park is how close it is to the entrance to Zion National Park. The park is less than a half mile from where you pick up the park bus. The city shuttle stops in front of the park. We just walked and rode the bus to see the park. It is a nice park but nothing special. Wi-fi was free but very slow as you are sharing it with the park and hotel. We were able to use our satellite dish but they do have cable. Very busy area, highly recommend leaving your car at your space and taking the free busses.

This is one of the nicest parks we have stayed in. The grounds are immaculate. Roads are paved and very wide. Most spaces are back in and are long enough to handle big rigs. Sites are rock and are level. Good spacing between sites and a small concrete patio is provided. Service for all sites is at the back so be prepared for long sewer and water connection. Wi-Fi is free and was very fast most of the time. Two pools that are just beautiful. They have two pickleball courts, an onsite coin car/RV wash along with many activities. There is a winery that is part of the park and tastings are free. Very good quality wines. The winery also has a restaurant that is very good, but pricey. Many snowbirds stay here as it is a great value. I highly recommend this park.

We had one of the full hookup, pull through sites. It does have 50 amp service. The sites are all paved as are the roads. Spaces vary in size, but the pull throughs were very long and level. Good spacing between sites. It is Death Valley so no shade and rock/sand between sites. My only complaint would be the narrow roads. I think it could be a tight squeeze for bigger rigs getting into the back in sites. You can walk to the visitor center and to the town. Very nicely maintained park. Great value.

Park is right off 395 a couple of miles south of Lone Pine. Very nicely maintained park but you do have to be careful about the trees. They warn you at the desk and give you the best route to get to your spot, plus there is a sign saying they are not responsible if you scrape the trees. Our site had some limbs hanging over but the spot was wide enough I was able to move further over in the site with no issue. Roads are paved with sites being hard packed sand/dirt. There are boulders between each sites and a pine tree at each site. Sites were long enough for our 40 foot fifth wheel with room to park our truck. Good spacing between sites. Fantastic views of the mountains on both sides of the park. Did not notice any road noise from 395. Very fast Wi-Fi and it is is free. Using a satellite dish should not be an issue in most sites. Verizon cell phone worked great. Very nice park.

Park is very nicely maintained. Majority of the park is permanent renters with about 20 pull through spaces available for overnighters. The sites are concrete pads with grass or gravel in between sites. Trees are small and do not impact rigs. Sites are long enough for big rigs and level. Roads are paved. Wi-Fi is free and very fast and cable TV is provided. The area around the park is not the best but the park does have a security gate for night and in the 3 times we have stayed here we have had no issues. Easy access to Highway 58 and just a few miles from all the shopping and such in Bakersfield.
