I felt it was necessary to re-review this park because it had changed so much. When we left in December 2014 it had changed. When we left there were no longer spaces for nightly stays, with all the sites being long term renters. Several of the long term renters were allowed to build covered decks and to have things piled about their trailers. The pull through sites were being used by long term people, blocked on one end or made into 2 sites.

The park is intended for use by those using the casino, so the amenities are a little scarce for those not wanting to gamble. However, the park is clean, albeit noisy. It was really hot the weekend we stayed and the noise from the trucks up in the parking lot could have been intolerable if it hadn't been for dual pane windows. We don't gamble but the buffet was good at the casino.

Don't confuse this park with Quail Trails RV Park! This is across the road. Pine Ridge is a very clean, quiet and safe park. There are long-term RVs here but they are kept very clean, without stuff stored all around. The roads are all paved. The sites are level and gravel with several pull-through spaces, surrounded by talk Ponderosa Pine, Cedar and, Oak trees. There was plenty of room to put out our 4 slides and there's tons of privacy.

This was our first visit to this park and we had a wonderful time. The staff and the owners bent over backwards to make sure that our every need was fulfilled. We stayed in the upper loop, which is intended more for big rigs. Our only complaint is that the restrooms and showers are not as nice in the upper loop as they are in the lower loop. In fact, we didn't use the showers in the upper loop at all, instead opting to walk the extra distance to the lower loop. We will definitely be returning to this park.

This is a PG&E campground. We camped here several times during the summer in our 30 foot rig. Most (if not all) sites have a view of Butt Valley Reservoir. This is a "primitive" campground. It has paved roads to the camping sites. It has pit toilets and water is available but there are no hookups. The restrooms were cleaned daily. While there is no formal "equipment" for kids, the roads are safe for bicycles and there is a large beach to play on. One of the big pluses is the slope of the lake bottom. It is so gradual that a person can go out quite a ways from the shore before the water actually gets deep.

The staff/owners were very friendly and helpful. We stayed twice in one week. The first night, we got there early and they let us check in early. The owner went and trimmed a tree for us because we are nearly 13' 6". As one reviewer said, there are some long-term residents here, but we did not find them unfriendly. In fact, during our first stay, someone in a site next to us was having difficulty with their trailer jack. One of the long-term residents helped to fix the problem and get the trailer hitched to the pickup. The creek behind us was wonderful. It helped to relax us and help us to sleep after a long day of driving. We would stay here again.
