The staff was excellent! The park seemed brand new and was very well maintained. Sites were quite varied, I suspect many sites/sections are being upgraded as there were a mixture of gravel and concrete sites. Be careful of the site you get, one section with new concrete pads was far from level and we were forced to move. We ended up in a pull through site where rigs were door facing door, without much space between. Look before you park, but stay away from the fence (highway noise) at the far end, up the hill. Despite these issues, we were surprised by the fact that there were many empty sites in prime snowbird season. It is really a great location.

An older park with a relatively crowded feel due to a lack of space between units. It was well kept, residents were mostly long term and friendly. Staff was helpful and efficient. Facilities were a bit small and dated for the size of the park. We were parked almost on top of our friendly neighbours, good that they were. Access was good and sites level. Some turns might be a bit tight for a larger rig. A decent value for the area. Rate was Passport America.

An excellent choice if going to Palm Springs or Arizona as it is on the other side of Bakerfield. Spacious and level, with easy access and convenient to highway. Friendly and efficient staff. The park is quite busy and fills and empties nightly. Orange trees at every site and you can pick in season. There is an area to wash your rig, if so inclined. We stay here on our way by every time. No real negatives, but in warmer months they can have an ant issue. But, you MUST like trains - a main line is quite close.

The park is mostly seasonal, but well kept. We return time and again on shopping trips or when passing through. Available sites are few and gravel, but most all pull through and level. Away from the I5, but you should like trains. Other than that, quiet and friendly. A nice, secluded spot.

Good choice if going to the outlet mall. Easy access and little highway noise, despite proximity. Easy walk to mall through side entrance. Seasonal sites at back of park, but well kept. Sites nothing special, but no problems. Dog park is large but not fenced.

Great choice on trips along I5. Close to highway but not too noisy. Well laid out, mostly pull throughs and level sites. Good laundry facilities and propane on-site. Very friendly and helpful staff. Local wines in park store! We stay here each way on winter trips, and will again. There is grass at sites, but it is patchy and very poorly kept.

Good choice if passing through or going to the casino. Back from the I5 and not noisy. Easy access sites, not assigned, you just register and then drive in and find one. All pull throughs. Easy access, follow GPS to get right exit. Good security. Not fancy but quite adequate. No cable. We routinely stay here enroute south.

Date of Stay:

Good choice for a night passing through. Make sure you get the top row, away from seasonals. Nothing fancy, but friendly staff and adequate sites. Near I5, but not too noisy.

Stayed here each way on winter CA trip. Best RV park on the route. Well laid out, close to I5 and but away from the noise. New everything, really well run and excellent service. A welcome stop and not to be passed by. Price reflects special discount, if you saw the sign. Not bad without. Easy access from highway.

Stayed here overnight each way on winter trip to CA. Easy access from I5 and yet away from highway noise. Staff friendly and helpful. Easy access to level sites with lots of space.

The resort is on San Diego Bay and you have a small park between it and the shoreline. A beautiful setting away from the bustle, despite being in the city. There is all night security, a nice touch in any city, but there seemed little need. The staff is friendly and efficient and in general residents are cheerful. The park is well laid out, sites are separated by shrubbery and the common areas are well designed. That said, things are close together, especially sites, and the pool area, clubhouse complex is somewhat small. However, it is a very well maintained park and a very pleasant spot. It was relatively expensive, but reflects its location in an urban area. We plan to stay there again, likely for longer.

Our favourite place to stay in Indio. This is a well designed and well maintained park, with most of the amenities of a larger RV resort and a better ratio of facilities to users. Sites are fairly spacious and the whole park has an open feel to it. Staff was friendly, as were most residents, and there were a number of activities to foster a pleasant sense of community. Thankfully lacking were the multitude of park models that tend to squeeze open spaces. The park is a refreshing oasis close to all the urban amenities, but with a secluded feeling. However, it is in the city and noise does carry, especially at night. We will be back next winter, for much longer. Also a great value on price point. Prices vary by type of site and location, we found that an upgrade from basic was well worth the money even though last year we were happy in a cheaper site.

The price likely reflects proximity to Victoria, otherwise it would be over priced. However, one is still a bit out of town and Victoria is not a place to drive about in a motorhome. Therefore, you need another vehicle for tourism. That said, it is a great location for catching the ferry to Anacortes from Sidney or for a first night coming from the U.S. on the Anacortes ferry, if you are continuing further north on Vancouver Island. The park is on Indian land and one drives through it about 3/4 mile to get there. We had no problems with the locals, as were mentioned previously by other reviewers. The park staff was friendly and efficient. Maintenance personnel were much in evidence and the park was pretty well maintained. In this light, it is as good as any local RV park and much better than most. Sites were reasonably spaced and separated by shrubbery. The one complaint I had was that the gravel used was of a poor quality and included a large percentage of ground, grey dust. Overall, the park was well laid out and included a decent playground near the non-seasonal sites. Seasonal sites were in a separate area but appeared well maintained. Other reviewers have praised the view, but I found it not at all special. Beach access was inconvenient and in general one should come here for proximity to local attractions. WiFi was good, when it worked. We kept being kicked off and it became very irritating. All in all, we will stay there again when taking the ferry or when vacationing in the Sidney area.

I had been here three years earlier and was met with the same helpful courtesy as before. The park location is simply spectacular, right on the main channel so that one has an excellent view of the shipping traffic and marine life, we saw five whales very close to the shore and directly in front of our motor home. Better yet, the sites are designed for nosed in motor homes and that big front view is awesome! One should be aware that this is essentially a place for adults to relax and appreciate the scenery, with little for the kids to do. The place is quite isolated and you should stock up before arrival. Most likely you will not use this park as a base for seeing the area, as it is too far from Campbell River for convenience and the three mile road in is simply awful. Be prepared for washboard, dust or mud, and narrow sections. The road in is a forestry road and not maintained to normal standards. For a one night stay, the drive in is not worth it. The focus is the seashore and wilderness, think cougars and bears, is right behind you. The park itself is part of a marina complex, with fishing or whale watching if desired. The RV park is very well maintained and very quiet at night, as the party crowd does not fit in. There are a fair number of seasonal RVs and they are assigned the prime sites. If you can get a south side, lower section site do so. That said, most sites are quite good, although the lower level sites are preferred by most. One should also be aware that cell service is at best iffy. One might get a weak signal out in the marina or on the observation platform, but you should not expect to. The internet is very slow, no movies or Facetime. Cable is also limited to a few channels and reception was poor. There is a floating restaurant, but it was pricey and so-so in quality. Go for the view.

We have been coming here for years and like this park. However, there is no policy and no restriction on the number of vehicles, occupants and shelters per site. In addition, tents are allowed next to RVs and people use them not just for a couple of extra children but to house additional adults and families. Moreover, there is no prohibition on motorized scooters and the like. Hence, during the summer vacation season and on June and September weekends, this place can be a bit of a zoo. Across from us, there were two sites with a total of six vehicles, two RVs (one suitable for recycling), two tents, a shelter, five bicycles, an air mattress used outside at night, nine adults and six children. Security patrols do exist, but only when crowded conditions prevail. These patrols do not effect the above issues. I recommend this park, but not at the times listed above. If you have stayed here before, you will see that things are slipping and that it is due to lax policies. If you want value and a peaceful stay, avoid being here during heavy use times.
