This is a beautiful, nicely appointed and well maintained campground. It sits on a bluff over the Mississippi River and some sites have views of the water and boat traffic. The interior loop road as well as the site pads are asphalt and in great condition. The sites are nicely spaced with lots of grass and a graveled area for a table and fire pit. Some sites have 50 amp, some have sewer, and some have both but you can't tell it by their web site camp map. Some sites are plenty long for big rigs. Recommend that you call their number and verify the details for each site. There is a museum and good walking trails with things to do and see. Near the museum there are picnic areas with great views of the river.

A very clean and well maintained park with long pull-throughs and great spacing between paved sites. Lots of trees but well spaced so satellite reception was excellent. Very nice owners eager to provide local information. Great walking areas around the park. Quincy is a wonderful little town with lots of sightseeing all around.

This is a great park on the north shore of Lake Almanor. Rate is low due to the lake being drawn down for the winter by PG&E. With the lake down, there is great hiking out on the dry lake bed. Views are drop dead gorgeous. Sites are in the tall trees and all over the place due to tree spacing. It could get crowded during the summer with the lake up but in October we were all alone. Very nice owners keep a well maintained campground. It is a rustic park on dirt and in the trees. We loved it and will definitely come back again. It's just a mile or two from Chester (don't miss the old fashioned soda fountain in the Lassen Gift Company).

This is a gem of a park. Owners (very nice) have completely redone the park in the last few years. Nice sites with visual barriers between them and lots of flowers. Gravel / dirt sites with plenty of room for table and chairs. Pull-throughs have lots of room for a dingy. Patrick's Point State Park is right across the road with wonderful hikes and ocean views. Great sightseeing in the area. Very quiet. We hope to come back here again.

Ferndale is the attraction here. The RV park is really just a dirt field with water and electric. Staff are nice and helpful. They have a few paved spots inside the fairgrounds and a couple with 50 amp. Call ahead to make sure the fair is not in session. But Ferndale is worth it. A wonderful little town with lots of Victorian houses and buildings. A great walking town. Lots to see. Hotel Ivanhoe has a wonderful restaurant. Definitely try the sandwiches at The Meat Company. Travel caution – the road between Shelter Cove and north to Ferndale (the Lost Coast) is terrible. The road itself is in horrible condition with dirt in a few spots. And since the pavement is in such terrible condition, the dirt is better. Many, many tight turns with many very tight hairpin switchbacks steep both up and down. We had to disconnect twice on hairpins (38’ Class A with dingy). Speed is usually under 25 MPH and one still bounces all over the place. The drive is just not worth it. The view is nothing to speak of. Only a short view of the coast. Much better views can be had at Shelter Cove or Ferndale.

Shelter Cove is location, location, location. It is right on the coast and drop dead gorgeous. It is only about 30 miles from highway 101 (Redway) but it is a slow drive. Road is good but narrow with many tight turns including a few hairpins and a steep descent from the mountains. Use low gear! It took us an hour and a half to do the 30 miles in a 38’ class A towing a dingy. The park itself has full hookups but otherwise is minimal. Sites are close together on dirt with few trees and not level. But the view is fantastic. It sits right next to the community runway and occasionally small private aircraft take off or land but only during the day. Lots of fishermen (and women) and surfers as that is the main attraction here. No Wi-Fi and cell coverage (Verizon) is weak.

We loved this RV Park. Very nice owners and staff. Sites are nice with plenty of room. Everything works. Park is within walking distance of town. Haines is a nice small town not affected by the cruise ship crowds.

This is a basic RV Park with some back in spots and some side by side pull thrus. In the back in sites hook ups are to the rear and everything works fine. It is dirt but so is everything in Dawson City due to Permafrost. This is the Yukon. You don't get any better. The owners and staff are fantastic. The park is right in Dawson City within walking distance to everything. And it is a wonderful city to see with many fun things to do. We had planned on staying for two or three days and ended up staying a week. There is lots to do and see.

This could be a great park with 150 sites. The problem is they have stuffed 209 sites into the location. Sites have a concrete pad 8 feet wide and there is 10 feet of grass between the pads. Most motor homes are wider than 8 feet so one walks on the grass regardless of how one parks. OK if it's dry, but different in the rain. With slides out on adjacent vehicles, there is no space for the picnic table. And the rig behind us was three feet from our rear. Interior roads are narrow. We had to move our dingy which was parked on our site (at 9:00 p.m.) so a trailer could maneuver into the site across from us. Tight quarters to say the least. And the indifferent office staff (borderline rude) didn't help either. Fortunately we were in the front of the park. Sites at the rear get a lot of road noise from the highway a short distance away. Lots of long term residents despite the high price. We would not stay here again.

This is a wonderful, quiet RV park. It's a working farm with nine or ten sites, all full hookup. No bathroom, shower, or clubhouse, just a great, clean, picturesque place to park. All sites are long and wide with plenty of room. Pull through sites are long enough to stay connected. Back in sites are plenty long enough for the longest rigs. All sites are separated at the sides with vegetation giving a very private and quiet feel. No night noise from traffic or anything. Owners are wonderful and sell their fresh (picked that day) vegetables and eggs. Close to town, but feels very remote. Surrounded by working farmland. We would definitely look forward to staying here again.

How this park ever received a 10/10/10 rating from Trailerlife we'll never know. While they have pull-through sites you are required to disconnect your dingy prior to entering the site. And the dingy will only fit on the site parked at an angle either in front of or in back of the rig. The sites are so narrow one can barely walk beside the rig without walking in the vegetation. And that is on a side without slides. The park is on a hillside so there is no area next to the site for a bar-b-que or chairs. No table is provided. If you want to sit outside you do so either in front of or in back of the rig on the pavement. Staff is pleasant sometimes, then not so pleasant other times. We only stay here because we are visiting someone in Wilsonville and have no other choice.

Wonderful RV park. Nice long pull-through sites. You can stay connected to your dingy if you want. Great separation from other sites. Beautifully maintained. We always stay here when we can.

This park is our new gold standard. We love it. Nice wide sites, level, flat, and 90' long! .And quiet! .Orange trees in every site with orange groves all around the park. Very nice staff. We've stayed in other parks here in Bakersfield. but none can come close to this. We definitely will stay here again. They even have a free wash rack for rigs or cars. We will definitely stay here next time we're in Bakersfield.

As others have said, this is a good park for an overnight. Very quiet, yet close to I 15 and I 40. Regardless of what Trailerlife says, they do have 50 amp (it's extra). And they do have Wi-Fi for $5 a day ($25 a week). We had no problem getting in our site in a 38' motorhome. And another 50' bus chassis with a dingy came in after us, so they can handle big rigs. Staff are very nice and helpful. We would stay here again.

Trailer Life rates this park as a 8.5/10*/10. That is way too high. This park is mostly permanent park models for long term or vacation residents. A few spots are for short term rentals. All sites are VERY close together. If they were any closer they would be called RV storage. Roads are very narrow. We could barely get our 38' motor home in our site. And we were right on top of our neighbor. We paid for three nights and left after two. We would not stay here again.
