Just a one nighter at this park on our way home due to a late start from the campground we had just spent a week at and had to leave due our maximum stay time being up. This is a senior type park with many permanent residents but a very friendly environment and good service all around. Our back in space was located in the rear of the property and situated in between many permanents but it was clean and with a good amount of space between us and the neighbors on each side. The facilities are first rate with a very nice pool area and bathhouse, etc. Great staff who got us checked in quickly and had an escort take us to our site and offer to help us back in and then showed us where everything was, etc. Located at a crossroads area southwest of Tucson just south of the old Tucson Movie Studios and within walking distance to shops, eateries, a hardware store and a Dollar General to name a few. We would have no problem staying here again.................

We have reviewed this park several times in the past and nothing much has changed since our last visit. We used it twice on this last trip and d decided to spend the additional $3 per night and stay in the south section. We have always stayed in the north section. Really no difference, you are situated between rows of orange trees in a pull-through space with plenty of room between you and your neighbor. The one difference that was readily apparent to us was that the traffic noise from Hwy 58 was far less than the north section and the sites do appear a tad larger. Either section is good, just a better night's sleep down south. No morning donuts this time of the season, but fresh coffee is still served. We checked out the "lodge" type gathering room for the very first time and it is really nicely furnished and decorated. Like being in a mountain log home with high beamed ceilings, a big rock fireplace, large overstuffed leather sofa and chairs, an upstairs pool table, big screen wall mounted TV and numerous other really nice features including a bookshelf filled with books to read. This really is a very nice park and as stated in prior reviews, one we will continue to use each time we are passing through this area. Very clean restrooms and shower areas. And an excellent staff to take care of all your needs while there.

We stayed at this park about three years ago and not much has changed. A park of mostly permanents with a long row of pull-through sites for the overnight crowd. Fairly easy to get to and yet far enough from I-40 that the night traffic noise is not bothersome. Nothing nearby in the way of markets, cafes, etc. so you unless you have a tow along you need to have your "essentials" in stock before hooking up. It's called Desert View but all the pull-through spaces face inward and look directly at other RVs or the park's facility buildings and pool, etc. The view of the desert is in back if you care to walk around and take a peek. A good, clean, quiet and safe stopover for the night and one that we will continue to use when in the Needles area.

This park is definitely a nice one. Easy access to/from the interstate and loaded with amenities one would expect from a park that calls itself a resort. Restrooms are actually individual shower rooms. Very clean, well designed, and totally private. Nice workout room and a pool area. The location is also ideal for those wanting to visit several close by areas. Office staff is cordial and you are escorted to your site. Several different types of sites ranging from back ins, drive ins, and pull thrus, with each type having a different setup. The pad you park on can be either red rock gravel or concrete slab. All sites do have concrete patios. Trash is picked up several times a day right at your site. Maintenance carts drive around all the time picking up misc. items off the roads and walkways, etc. Several RV's around us came and left during our stay and each time within just minutes after their departure a guy showed up on a cart and completely raked out the red rock gravel areas then blew off the concrete slab and/or patio area. The only fault we have with this park, and one that kept us from giving it a 10, is the fact that the sites that offer both a concrete parking pad and patio are not level. Our space required both time and patience to get as level as possible without lifting the wheels off the ground. and we never did get completely level. This leveling thing in parks with "concrete pads" has become a "bone of contention" with me. If a park goes to the expense of installing concrete pads then why can't they have those concrete pads level??? How hard can it be when pouring concrete to have it level??? We saw several large motorhomes with their front wheels up on blocks or their jacks and lifted several inches off the ground. This is not good to see in a park such as this. However, even with that one fault we will for sure stay here again next time our travels take us thru this area.

This was a one night stop over for us and based upon what we saw we would definitely stay here again. Easy access from and to I-40 and amazingly enough very quiet at night even with the close proximity to I-40. Hosts were helpful in getting us checked in quickly and said that if we needed anything to just ask. Very clean park even though there were quite a few permanent residents. About the only area we were not happy with was that this park is built on a hillside and levelling was not easy due to the sideways down slope. Fortunately our site was down at the far end of that down slope where the sites were a bit more level. Nothing that a few adjustments with the auto levelling system couldn't take care of but it did lift the front driver's side wheel off the ground and I had to settle for doing the levelling manually and be satisfied with a very slight lean to that side as I did not feel like "going thru the blocks" that evening after a long day's drive. Pretty typical one nighter type of park but a nice one and worth a stay if you are traveling thru Kingman on the way to your final destination................

We have been looking for a park/campground by the ocean on the coast north of San Francisco to spend a few days and after reading the reviews and detail of this park decided to give a chance. Made a reservation for a pull thru space and when we arrived and greeted by the host/mgr. it was there waiting for us. This park is located right on PC Hwy 1 but is set back far enough that there is little to no traffic noise so the nights were quiet and very peaceful. The hookups all worked well, good water pressure and no drops in the electrical either. The spaces are wide enough apart to afford some privacy so you don't feel boxed in or cramped. No ocean view as it is about 1/4 mile or so off the beach and surrounded by a grove of I believe Torrey Pines that serves as wind break. The restrooms were neat and clean and there is a small area in the office where you can buy essentials if needed. Nothing fancy but it works for what it is. The pads are gravel but level and well groomed. We levelled the coach easily and quickly This park is located about a mile north of The Inn at the Tides and the main area of Bodega Bay itself as is the main tourist wharf area, so going back and forth is quick. We really enjoyed our stay here and will for sure be going back again at some point this year. Overall a very nice and convenient RV park that is well run and set up to make you stay enjoyable. Only disappointment, not attributable to the park, is that the old fog horn we were so looking forward to listening to at night and to fall asleep with, has been replaced by one of the new electronic higher single hz. "beeps" every ten seconds. Just not the same, but what is these days.........

We stayed at and reviewed this park the last time we passed thru this area and said we'd stay again and we have. Not a lot of changes since our last stay that we noticed but we don't normally use many of the facilities available at the various parks so all I can do is base this review on what we saw this last stay and that was all very good. As before the hosts were friendly and helpful, our site was easy to back into and hookups were pretty much standard and in the right area to get to, etc. This is a park located about a half mile off of Interstate 8 about 40 or so miles east of Yuma and there is nothing out there but desert and cactus. But if you like a good night's sleep in a peaceful surrounding with the sky above ablaze with thousands of stars, then you will love this park. And at the rate they charge you cannot go wrong for a night's stay such at that. Clean, well maintained and with a nice clubhouse and facilities (we did check all this out of course even tho we didn't use them) we will most certainly continue to make this one of our overnight stops along the I-8 corridor when we travel that route. Oh, and it is easy access on and off the interstate and there are signs to follow, etc. It ain't fancy but it sure is nice..................

We have used this Casino/RV Park several times in past years and have never had a bad experience. Pretty much a bare bones park adjacent to a Casino complex but it is clean, well kept and for $28 a night a good deal in our opinion. The Casino shuttle will pick you up at your site and take you back, the food in the Casino is good and reasonably priced and the sites themselves are kept clean and have good hookups. Easy access from I-5 and even tho it is adjacent to the interstate and there is a large truck stop up front, the noise level is not bothersome and you will get a good night's rest while there. We've stayed at other parks that charge much more and offer much less so basically we will continue to return and use this park whenever we are in the area and our plans call for an overnight stay.

We have stayed at this park many times over the past years and do so simply because it is ideally located and close to family we visit in the area. It is an older and pretty much run down park that is mostly permanent residents and with few spaces available for overnight use. It is a "quaint" little park with a small but well stocked grocery store on the premises which is used by outsiders as well as those inside the park. It is situated in between I-15 and old Hwy 395 so there is traffic all day and night but surprisingly is not that noisy or bothersome. The owner is great and very accommodating as by now we are on a first name basis with her. She always tries to get us into a space that is easy to back into and away from some of the older and more run down units in the park and that is why we continue to come back each time we are in the area visiting family. The rate is a tad on the high side for what you get but it is after all very well located and in the San Diego/Escondido area. Prices of other parks in the area, but not much better, are even higher. We have checked them out and even stayed at one only to be very disappointed. So once again is really is the only game in town that serves our needs. Funny thing, a few months ago we were watching a program on the Home & Garden channel and it featured a "tiny house" that was recently constructed in the very space we were in on our last trip to this park. As we drove by it we both said, "Hey, there's that tiny house we saw on TV". And it is sitting right next to the old beat up, run down, ugly, and totally trashed out old Airstream travel trailer we sat next to and mentioned in our last review of this park.

We stayed twice at this park on a recent trip, one time going, the other returning. This has become our park of choice in the Bakersfield, CA area. Great staff, clean grounds, fresh oranges to pick at will and hot coffee and fresh donuts in the morning are provided. Have reviewed this park in the past and it continues to be right up on top as one of our favorite parks to stay at. Conveniently located right off Hwy 58 about 9 miles east of Bakersfield with easy access to and from. A really nice relaxing place to toss out the old anchor for a night.

Normally when we are in the Redding, CA area we stay at one of two other RV parks but this trip decided to try Premier Resorts instead. Once again the word "Resort" rears it's head and in our opinion is not deserved. The price paid for a pull thru space in this park is approx. $10 higher than in the other two parks and in no way offers anything more in terms of amenities or space setup, etc. We were very disappointed in staying here as we did expect more than what we got for the extra money spent. Easy to find and drive into and far enough off I-5 so as not to hear traffic noises. Check in went smoothly and the small gift shop did have a few nice "trinkets", etc. for sale. The space itself was clean and level with a picnic table and the normal hookups which were conveniently positioned to make the hookup process easy and quick. Once again our major disappointment was with the price charged compared to the other two extremely nice parks in the immediate area. We feel that we were ripped off and overcharged and will not be staying at this park again. In our opinion when a park calls itself a resort and charges resort prices such as this one does, it should offer amenities over and above other parks close by that charge way less and offer more..............

We have stayed several times over the years at this park and each time enjoy the time we are there immensely. We have always felt this to be a really nice park to just kick back by the river and unwind for a few days so that's why we keep coming back. Nothing has changed much since our last review and we still highly recommend this park to any and all passing through the Redding area either for an overnighter or for several days of lazing by the river. It just don't get much mo betta than this one. The reason for the mediocre "service rating" this time was due to a reservation clerk screwing up our reservation which put us into a spot where we were unable to get satellite reception and the afternoon sun was right into our patio area with no way of shading it. Hey, it could have been handled differently by management and wasn't and it did leave a bit of a bad taste in our mouths as we are regular customers to this park. Other than that, it's definitely worth checking out.

This was our fifth stay at this great park. Each time we find it nicer than the time before with landscaping and general cleanliness to be exemplary. I had never used the men's "facilities" on our prior stays but did this time and was pretty surprised to see three doors, one being part way open, the other two locked as someone was using them. Each room has it's own toilet, sink and shower plus adequate space to put things on and hang clothing up, etc. And clean as a whistle. Total and complete privacy which was really nice. A first class RV park that really knows how to treat their guests and give them a real nice place to park the RV and spend night or how ever many you care to. Granted it is a tad higher priced than other parks in the area but certainly to us is well worth it. There was another park that up until now was our favorite park. That is no more, Seven Feathers has taken over number one spot and probably will hold onto it for some time to come.

We decided to try this park instead of using one of the several others we normally stay at on our trips to Washington from No. Calif. We found it very easy to find and had a pleasant check in experience as well. This is a basic RV park that is kept clean, well maintained and with some nice views of the surrounding hills. A short ways off I-5 and somewhat behind a Holiday Inn Express there is not all that much traffic noise and we got a good night's sleep. In the morning they have coffee and packaged pastries. We normally don't partake of stuff like this but in this case we wanted to get on the road early and avoid making breakfast or stopping along the way so we did have a blueberry muffin and one very tiny sweet roll. The coffee was good but the muffins and rolls were, shall we say "marginal" at best. Still we thought it was nice of the park to offer both. We would definitely recommend this park for a one-nighter or if you had relatives in the area and needed a nice clean and comfortable park to stay. One thing I will add is that normally in just about every single park we have ever stayed at it took several times and at least a minute or more going back and forth to get level but in the space we had, G-9, it took three adjustments as we were spot on level. I was impressed....!!!

This was our third stay at this park. This is one of the "good ones" in our opinion. Very well kept grounds, good check-in and friendly folks that make it so. Spaces are level, good utility hookup posts. A little traffic noise as it is adjacent to I-5 but not enough to be bothersome or to keep you from resting well at night. We normally get a pull-thru space near to but not on the river which is further away from the traffic. Nice park to walk around in the evening. Not a destination park for us but certainly one that we like to use when traveling the I-5 corridor between Sacramento and Vancouver, WA to visit family. Will definitely be staying here again on future trips...............
