This park is very remote. The nearest shopping is in Hollister, 12 miles and a half hour drive away. There is a small store on the property but the stock is very limited and it was closed most of the time. Make sure your fuel and refrigerator are full before you come. It's a large park with most spaces well separated. There are a lot of trees so it's pretty. But it's badly in need of maintenance as other reviewers have said. Probably half of the electrical boxes are not working. The man who checked us in said this year's budget allows for one restroom to be remodeled but all six need to be. An electrician is supposedly coming. Stay tuned... There are a lot of full-timers with Thousand Trails memberships who go back and forth between this campground and the one in Morgan Hill every 21 days. Not much to be done about that. We heard that a new park manager started just before we arrived and that much of the staff here quit. Maybe that's why on Tuesday they delivered the previous Thursday's newspaper to our door. Funny or sad? You decide. Wifi at our site was for a fee from Tengo. Verizon LTE worked well and there was adequate cell phone service as well.

We stayed here once before. It was certainly worth the 50% discount through Passport America. This is a nice, clean, well-run park. My only complaint is that they still haven't fixed their wifi. I had to walk to the office from our campsite (which was within view) to connect my iPad to the network. It disconnected by the time I walked back, and while I was able to connect to the network again, it never worked. Considering that this park charges at the high end of usual rates for th area, I'm surprised that they still haven't fixed their wifi problem. It's not a luxury anymore.

This is a nice, clean, well-run campground. Our discount was through RPI, which means we only get to stay in certain spaces that are back-ins. The pull-through so are reserved for customers paying by other means. Our only complaint about the campground is that the sewer connection is awkwardly placed so the only way to connect to them is with a 20-foot hose. The wifi worked well.

I have reviewed this park before and am sad to say it hasn't improved with age. We stay here because we are members of Thousand Trails and the price is right. This is one of the older Thousand Trails parks and it doesn't appear that any attempt is being made to maintain or improve it. It is full of permanent and long-term residents which is never a good quality in an RV park. There is no sewer in this park, so you either have to use the park's showers (which we almost never do) or go to the dump station every few days. That is a serious negative, and is the reason we never stay more than a few days. The only decent spots in the park are in the last few rows which have been upgraded with 50 amp service. Even with our membership it still costs us $5 a night to park in one of those spots, and we don't use 50 amp service. But it's the only place we can park where we're not among people who live in their RVs, some of whom are just poor and some who are highly inconsiderate. Even there, our picnic table looked like it was original to the park, and I don't mean "vintage." Park staff are friendly and helpful. They are doing the best they can with a bad situation. Whoever owns this park should be ashamed for letting it get so run down. This place could be a jewel, given the location just south of San Jose. It doesn't reflect well on the park owners or the Thousand Trail network.

This is a very well-run park near the CA-120 entrance to Yosemite National Park. It is clean, the staff are courteous, knowledgeable, and helpful. They don't charge extra for parking in a 50-amp site unlike some TT parks. We had a spot backing up to the Tuolumne River which was gorgeous although mosquitoes were abundant. There is NO cell phone service in the park (ours is Verizon). The wifi was only available in the office because of construction in the lodge (normally wifi is offered in both places) but it worked well. Unlike some of the Thousand Trails parks which are getting old and run down, this park is being maintained and upgraded. We would definitely stay here again.

This used to be a KOA a few hundred years ago. Now it's a dusty field with hookups. There's concrete separating the sites, which are fairly close together and no trees for privacy or shade. We stayed here before and since the last time they've added quite a few park models in some of the sites, up on blocks. Apparently there are more people working around Ozona, Texas than in the past. The price is up, although the woman at the motel who checked us in insisted that the price hasn't increased in 5 years. For a parking space in a dusty lot with full hookups, cable, and wifi, it's not ridiculous. They give you a 15% discount at the restaurant with your site. There is nothing around and the fuel at the nearby station is way more expensive than others we passed. For one night it's fine. I can't imagine staying longer.

This is one of the nicer Thousand Trails parks we've stayed in. It's old, as they all are, but fairly well-maintained. The sites are grass, and we could see big gouges in some where people had had trouble getting out after a big rain because the ground was so soft. Only about half the sites have sewer, so they offer a "honey wagon" service for people who have sites without. We chose a site near the river that didn't have sewer and they offered us a free pump-out during our 6-night stay, which was very nice. Their electric service is subject to brownouts. We were unable to use our microwave during our stay because there wasn't enough power to run it. Our electric space heater and my hair tools worked fine. They have excellent wifi in the clubhouse. Also lots of activities. People here were very friendly, helpful. It's a nice setting, with a walking path along the river. Not much to do but there are restaurants and shops in nearby Wauchula for basics. We would stay here again.

This is an old park, used to be a KOA. Not much else to choose from in the area. Roads are narrow, sites are quite decent, wifi worked well. Wouldn't want to stay here for the winter season just because it's pretty crowded, but would stay here again for a few nights.

Date of Stay:

This park is a jewel. Clean, secure, free wifi, free laundry. The sites are large and spacious. A lot of people come to fish on the weekends; some get kind of rowdy and drunk. That was the only negative. We would definitely stay here again.

As previous reviewers said, this park has lots of long-term residents. We didn't feel especially safe there and were glad it was only for one night. In addition to lots of clutter around many of the RVs, there was duck poop everywhere. Roads are narrow, all sites back-ins. Our rate was through RPI. The Wifi worked well. We won't stay here again.

This was our second stay in this park. It's such a pretty setting. Almost no one else was there. We felt very safe. We paid $2 extra per night for a pull-through. Sites have water and electricity but no sewer. No wifi but our Verizon hotspot worked well.

This was our second stay in this park. It's a lovely setting. The sites are large and well separated. Most are pretty level. We paid extra for a premium lake-front site, although the lake level is pretty low. Wifi works really well, lots of networks to choose from. The park is clean, well-maintained, and secure. It's a little pricey but that's our only complaint. We would stay here again.

The area around this park isn't the best, and we were a little hesitant pulling in. But the park is very clean, extremely well-maintained, and the office staff friendly and efficient. We didn't see a lot of long-term residents like you see in other parks and the RVs here were newer and in good condition. They also have a good-sized fenced dog play area that our dog enjoyed. There's a large supermarket down the street. We would definitely stay here again.

Date of Stay:

The roads in this park (just one loop) are narrow, and some of the cars/trucks parked in front of their RVs extend into the road, making it even harder to navigate with a big trailer. It's not a bad park but also doesn't have much to recommend it. They have free wifi but I never could get it to work. No cable either. I don't think we'll be back.

Date of Stay:

Rate includes $10 reservation fee ($33 a night). Long spaces, about half pull-throughs, well spaced. Campground looks quite new, is very clean. We felt really safe here. Wi-fi worked well. Close to lots of shopping. A little pricey for a county park, but we would stay here again because it's so nice. It probably gets pretty crowded in the summer with picnics and recreation on the river.
