Park is very unique as it is on a the San Juaquin River with large ships coming by almost daily. The club room is extremely small for groups but the patio area is nice with tables and umbrellas when the weather is nice. The whole Marina is spotless. I would rate this park a 10 but the pads are rock and there are no sewer hook-ups. There are three types of spots with different prices. There are (1)Premium river front spots with 30 amp and (2)Deluxe spots with 50 amp and very few (3)Standard. Make sure you check the map before you reserve a spot and get what you want and pay attention to their cancellation policy. Also, the park is very secure with fencing and gates exposed to the public. We look forward to another visit.

We stayed with a group. The facilities for a group function are adequate. The park itself needs attention. This park was designed for 1960's era Travel Trailers. The roads are narrow, the trees are not trimmed, and the utility hook-ups are dilapidated. Not many of our rigs were able to lock on to a satellite signal. Too many children on skate boards and bikes unsupervised. Sooner or later there will be a serious accident here. Parking of tow vehicles is difficult with such small RV spots. Management is quick to ticket folks who may have a wheel on their cultured weeds. We will not return.

We stayed twice, once on the way, and once on the way back. Fresh Oranges this time of year. The only negative is the lack of concrete pads and they have raised their rates again, $39 for discount and cash is getting up there with luxury parks. The gritty ground rock is a pain. The staff is friendly and efficient. Make reservations even if on the day of arrival. This park gets alot of business.

We stayed here with a group. Very helpful and friendly staff. The club room was adequate with tables, chairs, refrigerator, stove with oven and microwave along with a big screen television. Parking on a concrete slab with power connections convenient. Group and overnight parking is close to the clubhouse. Only negative is that there are a few folks wondering around that were pretty strange.

We stayed here with a group of 16 Motorhomes. Attendants were friendly and helpful. The double-wide was adequate as a club room. We had two rigs that parked in spots with power problems. They were very attentive to the problems and provided transformer boosters. The spots provided were on asphalt. The rows were in the exit lane of the grounds with people driving way to fast. Too many monthly renters with too many kids and dogs. We were in #120 with a stairway with too much traffic walking through our spots. The trees were planted in the front of the sites causing excess jockying to get satellite service. It was extremely windy. This park is not close to anything!

Before we booked our reservation I read the previous reviews and was really skeptical. We were in Eugene for the U of Oregon graduation ceremony so amenities were not important. The receptionist was pleasant and helpful. The area of the campground for short-term stay was very tight for Class A rigs. Use caution! The trees were trimmed back, the asphalt was clean and moss free. The power was adequate. The trains were frequent but not bothersome as others have stated. I guess it has a lot to do with how well your rig is insulated. The park is close to the University. Of course it rained!

We stopped for the evening traveling south on I-5. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful. The sites are rock, and the streets are asphalt. Power pedestals located where they should for pull throughs. The trees and bushes are growing (finally). The shuttle to the casino was a nice touch as we didn't have to unhook the toad. On Tuesdays the Senior rate for the buffet is half off. (their Senior age is 50). Overall, it was a good place to stop for overnight.

We stayed with a group. The facilities are excellent. The staff is efficient and friendly. This park is pretty much always full for the weekends. I suggest booking well in advance.

Stayed here with a group. Excellent kitchen/meeting room facilities. Employees are very friendly, helpful, and attentive. I would recommend this place to all individuals and groups. The only down side is that the sites are not on concrete and 50 amp service is not available.

We stayed for 3 nights with a group. The Thousand Trails members were free and some of us had the pay $42.00. The club house was adequate for a small group. We were disappointed that they only provided spots with 30 amp electric and water. The roads are a dirt/rock combination and the sites were rocked.

We have stayed here many times in the last 15 years. It seems that they always say there is "New Management" but the same people are there. Our Club had a rally here. They said the cable TV worked, it didn't, the room was OK. I had to bite the bullet, bought a portable 50 amp surge protector with LCD readouts because this park is notorious for power problems. Sure as heck, Sunday morning, the thing was indicating low power on one of the 50 amp legs. This park needs to buckle down and just get things right. It is like the Dutch Boy and the dyke! fix something, something else goes wrong. Some of the monthly units staying there should be condemned!

I agree with everything reported in the previous post with the addition that once again we experienced a power outage at 3:30 AM and it wasn't restored until after we left at 10:30 AM. The main problem with power outages at this park, is that there is no water pressure! The sanitary system also works on electricity. We were hopeful that there would be marked improvement from last year, but were disappointed.

We have been coming to this park for many years. The restaurant is closed. The golf course is in deplorable shape. The Cable TV is terrible. Staff is friendly, pool is open. Park intends to expand, thus making the golf course 9 holes from 18. Lawns are dry, obviously the economy has hit this place too!

We were looking forward to being right on the river and reserved site 29, River was about 12' across. The other river front sites had a view of a wooded cyclone fence. Cable TV is excellent. With a big rig you need to be very careful in this park. Verizon doesn't work, Cingular does. Electricity was ample. Satellite service works best if you have one of the pull-throughs in the Center RV area. Grounds were well-maintained. Swimming pool was being filled during our stay. This is a really nice place for families to tent camp on the grassy area by the "big" river. Would stay here again with site preferences

A pleasant getaway. Close to downtown Calistoga. Campground is level, large pull-throughs in front section. 9 hole golf course adjacent to RV area. Covered area with benches for BBQ. Large room available for group functions through fair grounds. Campground host is very friendly and helpful.
