Date of Stay: November, 2016
Stayed in a 45' MH. Well off I-5 this is a great place to stay near Junction City, a hotbed of RV repair and modification businesses that arose from the Monaco/Country Coach collapse to serve orphan makes; we had a Sat system installed. Park is in a bend in the Willamette River and associated with the church there. Sites are all concrete with accompanying patio area, a bit close together but level although several are cracked and uneven. Some sites separated from others by a grass strip. Power pedestals are worn but work fine, no power issues. Park has had some hard use and low maintenance. Manager is in the process of rejuvenating the park, about half of the sites are unavailable for rent but available for parking. By no means unsafe. Very crowded on Sunday and some evenings can be busy but not objectionable. They had a nice overflow area for parking our 26 foot cargo trailer. Would stay here again, no issues.

Stayed for 8 days in 45' MH with a 26' Cargo trailer and Pickup. Long sites, gravel and very level, ours was particularly long (A3). Each site has a row of olive trees between them leading to a very spacious feel. Easy on and off to I-5 and the noise can be an issue if you are outside, we didn't hear it in the coach. Strong Verizon signal and no problems with sat reception. Park had a water issue while we were there and the Mgmt was on top of it, getting it repaired promptly and issuing alerts about using the water. At least 2/3rds of the park are long termers, welcome to the new American scene, but friendly and sites were clean and orderly; mgmt stays on top of it. The nearby Woodson Regional Park has a great area for walking the dog near the river. Your nearest big box vendors are in Chico, about 25 miles away. We have this park on our short list and would definitely stay here again.

Great little park just off I-90, first exit after Kellogg heading East. Main business is the Gold Mine tour, they don't even talk about the RV park on their web site, just mention it is there. They are doing a lot of work to make the sites big rig friendly. We stayed in 45' rig and found the new sites asphalt paved, level and full coach length; others are gravel. Sites have decent separation on well maintained gravel roads, about four 50 amp sites the rest are 30 amp. Newer sites are wide and free of obstructions; we backed in. Clean. They have plans for pull-throughs eventually but not now. Full hookups. Very close to the freeway but not excessively noisy. Nice 71 mile paved bicycle trail across the road with lots of room for dogs to run free down by the river. Uncrowded when we stayed. Nice people, working to improve the park, interesting area and exhibits, and there is always the gold mine tour. A find for a quick overnight. Try it; I will again.

I don’t usually post but these folks deserve a special mention. If you don’t like trees, stay across the road at Jellystone, if you want a little piece of seclusion and privacy and a sense of inclusion, stay here. We work on the road, have a mobile business that keeps us in gas and peanuts and really value a restful place to come “home” to after a hard day. The nights we stayed there, June 20-25 they had a couple of folksingers and an ice cream social on Wed and Fri nites, free. The grass is green and lush, the spaces far enough apart, the big rig pull through were excellent and we appreciated the friendly folks running the place who really care how they present themselves, their park and your experience. Maybe we were just lucky or open but we met several nice folks who were full timing or extended and were invited over to examine rigs, swap recipes and lies and just socialize. Reception on our Verizon Aircard was dismal but the free wifi was first rate. They have cable and apparently a phone access so no problem with net access. Saw plenty of folks using the Dish for TV. Definitely on our short list of places to stay again.
