We do not understand the high ratings given this park. In its favor are its location and it is well maintained with one exception (see below). Nevertheless, it is a typical RV park parking lot, a nicely landscaped parking lot, but a parking lot. We think the problem may be a disconnect between the young staff and the older retirees who are the majority of the visitors. For example, there is a lovely pool area, but the staff blares loud music at those trying to sleep, sun, read or even have a conversation without shouting. They will turn it down if asked....eventually. One visitor says she uses the tiny pool near the laundry room because she and her friends cannot stand the loud music in the main pool area, but the staff acted insulted when I asked them to turn it down, if not off. The laundry facility is a disaster. On a Friday morning of the beginning of a holiday weekend, the machines were failing like dominos. Rather than being touring Modernism Week opening or enjoying the out of doors, it took me over 3 hours to do 2 loads of laundry. Another guest was so irate she shouted that she would never return to this RV Park because it was the worst laundry facility she had experienced in over 20 years of RV travel. For a park as expensive as this one, they could do better. And it is noisy....traffic noise, train noise....not a relaxing environment. No newspapers available...empty machines, not a single vending machine with cold soft drinks...they could do a lot better.

The reasons we didn't give this campground a 10 is because of the noise. There seems to be quite a bit of group camping here, and those people seemed to be having a wonderful time. Maybe we are a bit jealous? Maybe had we made the effort to walk by, we would have been invited to join in? The partying went on quite late, but we carry a noise machine with us, and fell asleep to the sound of rain. The other reason is that while clean, the laundry room is not well ventilated. If you love the fragrance of fabric softener, bring your laundry here! If you are allergic to it, avoid! The sites are large and separated from one another by tall shrubs, offering privacy rare for many RV parks. Restaurants and shopping are only a short drive away.

This campground double booked two groups. One group was supposed to vacate sites by 11am, the other group was supposed to begin arrival at noon. When we arrived at 12:30 pm, our assigned site was occupied. The occupants refused to leave, even though they had not paid for a late departure or additional day, and the campground staff refused to do anything about it. It was nearly 90 degrees and we and our pets were stranded with no place to go. 5 hours later when I unhooked their electricity, they finally left, cursing at us. Other members of our group of over 150 people had similar experiences. Additionally, we had reserved the larger of two meeting buildings. The other group of only 38 people again refused to give up that building, and our group was forced into a smaller building for the first 24 hours of our meeting. Finally, they charge $15.00 for Internet service. The service has been unusable.

WiFi inaccessible. We were parked near the office and complained. An employee said he would "turn it on at our site." That lasted for 20 minutes. The campsite was large, shaded and private. That's the only nice thing about it. The toilets and showers were relatively clean, but very old. The campground is quite far from town.

We agree with everyone else's comments. An excellent RV park with wonderful facilities, an exceptional staff. Our only reason for not staying here more often is that we are not gamblers and do not smoke, so going to the huge casino is not an option for us, and other than lounging by the indoor pool, which is lovely, there is nothing to do in Canyonville.

Generally agree with other reviews. Very friendly and helpful staff. Site was fine and level. Was raining the entire time we were here. Redding is a difficult town to find one's way around.

Our rate reflects a Passport America discount. We have been stopping at this campground for a number of years heading back and forth to Southern California. Because of a flat tire and the weather forecast, we decided to spend a second day exploring the area. There are 81 wineries here in the Lodi/Woodbridge area. Having sampled just a few, our next trip south will include Lodi as a destination. The only thing preventing us from giving it a 10 instead of the 9 we rated it is the limited TV channel selection. In the past, pre-iPad with cellular capabilities, we also had problems with Internet access, but the iPad worked fine here on cellular. Otherwise, we agree with the excellent reviews others have given Flag City RV Resort.

We have stayed at the campground several times and have always been pleased. As other reviewers have mentioned, it is extremely well maintained, clean, resort like, and the location is perfect coming and going to/from Southern California. It is also very close to a Camping World and supermarkets, should you need any supplies. What no one has mentioned is that the restaurant and bar on the premises serve the very best Bloody Mary's to be had anywhere on the planet. The food is quite good, too. Bakersfield is always a dilemma for us because two of our favorite RV parks are here, this one and Orange Grove. We resolve the dilemma by staying in one heading South and the other returning north. I sure wish the I-5 corridor had other RV parks of this caliber elsewhere along the way.

If you hate fresh air, and love the scent of fabric softener and laundry detergent, and all the beds in the Valley's laundromats are taken, this is the place for you. We first camped here 4 years ago and really liked the place. When we came back for a longer stay the next year, it looked a bit run down, and one could hardly breathe in the pool area, as the laundry vented out into the pool area. We skipped a year, and when I called this year to ask if anything had been done about the problem, I was told that all of the dryers were newly vented, so we made a short, two week reservation, intending to extend our stay if things were as presented. We could smell the laundry facility before passing through the gates. I guess no one told management that even with new venting, someone had to clean them. The place is considerably more run down than two years ago, and many park models are for sale. Friends who own park models are really unhappy, but apparently, it is very hard to sell them, yet the fees keep rising. We will not be returning.

A little pricey, but this is a really nice park with great facilities. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Coffee, tea, hot chocolate, and cookies are always available. Wonderful, inexpensive restaurants in the area. We would definitely stay here again.

Not sure this is exactly a review, but RVers should know that the office for this campground is closed on Sundays. We were contemplating a move here from Malibu but based on the reviews at this website, we thought we better look at it first. When we arrived, there was a couple in an older, small RV who were wondering what to do, as they had found the manager somehow, and were told no camptsites were available. By the time we arrived, the manager was unavailable and a sign said the office was closed on Sundays. No one stopped us or asked who we were, so we decided to drive around to check it out. The reviews here are pretty accurate from what we could observe, but I would worry about security since we could have been robbers and no one even looked at us twice. However, it should be noted that we observed that at least 10 sites were empty, despite what the other couple were told.

This is a beautiful park, but not really suitable for a stay of any length unless you are a family with kids. Not all that much to do in the Malibu area for grown ups except to relax and enjoy the view. We changed sites 3 times and the hosts were very accommodating. We finally slected an Ocean view because we fet the extra cost was worth the unobstructed ocean breezes. Very different prices depending on location and whether you have electric and water, or full hookup services and those prices rise considerably on weekends. Internet was best experienced in any RV park, and channel selection and reception were decent for cable TV. Our son visited us for a few hours and was charged an additional $10 for parking. The security seems extra tight to the point of being disconcerting. Husband had to wait in line for a shower on a Saturday night.

We agree with other rececnt reviews. This is just about the the ONLY place to stay in that long stretch between Corning, CA and the Los Angeles outskirts. The owners are very kind and considerate. The WiFi was decent, the bathrooms were old but usable, and the swimming pool water was clean but cold.

We agree with the other comments made about this RV park, especially difficulty finding the entrance. This is the second time we stayed here, and I can't emphasize the conveninece of the local amenities. Easy walk or drive to shopping and convenient entrance and exits from gas stations. and since it was our second visit, found it right away. The staff was the same as two years ago and is friendly and helpful. Only criticism is that there are few cable TV channels and internet service goes in and out.

Date of Stay:

Staff was very friendly and helpful. The park was clean, including the shower facilites, but there was almost no water pressure in the showers. WiFi was poor as was the cable TV reception. Very few channels available.
