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...............

Have stayed at this park before prior to joining this forum and were every bit as pleased with this stay as we were our first. Located in the middle of a producing orange grove with all the oranges you can pick made available to you including a picking pole and bags, this park is a really nice stay for an overnight stop when heading east or west on Hwy 58. Clean wide spaces with good hook-ups and a friendly, helpful staff. Some train noise at night but tolerable. Free donuts and coffee are offered each morning, a nice plus and a treat. This is a good sized park with north and south sections. We've stayed in both and both are equal in layout and amenities, etc. This is one of the two best parks in the Bakersfield area in our opinion and certainly worth checking out if you are traveling in this area and need a place to toss out the anchor for a night or two.

We stayed at this park in June of 2014 when it was 109 degrees and with everything dry or dead, including the palm trees, there were only a few coaches in the park making it look like a barren wasteland. Still we felt it had "good bones" so we decided to return and see what it was like in Feb. when the temp was a tad lower. What a difference! And viva la difference! The park was almost full to capacity. Everything was green and lush and the three small ponds were also full and looking very good. This is a great park for either a one night stand or for several days or more. Only negative we have is that trying to reach them by phone is near on impossible as it was our first time here. Nine times out of ten you are going to get a recording telling you to either call back or leave a message so be prepared for that. Other than that one small negative, we will definitely be using this park as a stopover on our Arizona desert trip each Feb. Nice wide spaces, lots of grass with concrete pads and good h0okups, etc. We didn't use the clubhouse or any of the other amenities this park advertises but we did walk around a bit and it really is a very nice park overall. Also very quiet at night even tho it is located in busy trafficked area..........................

I'll make this one short. A wonderful park tied in with a really nice casino and golf course/restaurant facility. Spotless grounds, restrooms, and spaces. Manicured and in a very nice setting. We would have given this park a 10 but for the fact that for $55 there was no table, bench or chairs at the spaces and one would think that for this amount, they would be provided, especially when you are just there for the one night and don't feel like dragging out all your own stuff, etc. This park also charges a $5 per day pet fee on top of the somewhat high nightly charges already being paid. I asked the clerk why this was and was told it was because they had to go around and police the RV area for pet droppings. I thought this was a pretty lame excuse. Other than that one thing, we would definitely stay there again and stay a bit longer to enjoy some the casino offerings.

We decided to try this park for one night based upon past reviews but quickly found out that this is by no stretch of the imagination, a "resort". We made a reservation and were told it depended on the day we arrived as to what the rate would be. And when we did arrive we found that the space that was assigned to our Class A full slide Motorhome was not near wide enough and backing in would have been a not so good experience. So I went back and got another space on the "upper level". A tad bit longer and wider that the first one we were able to back in and get hooked up. Then we noticed the neighbors next to us who had their laundry out to dry on racks scattered around their RV. Kids bikes and various toys scattered everywhere and one bike I had to move before attempting to back in. No table or bench available and just the basic hookups were there to use. Whatever this park was supposed to have been in the past is no longer what it has become today. A major rip off for what you get IMNO. Will never stay there again and if you are in the area and thinking about staying there my advice to you is to "drive on" and find something else.

We decided to stay one night at this state park on our way to another destination. We wanted to check it out for a possible return visit next year. The RV park area itself? It's wonderful. The spaces are widely separated and getting in and out is a breeze for even the biggest rigs. We will definitely stay here again for a few days next year on our desert trip.

We decided to try this park on our way home and were pleasantly surprised at what we found. Situated out in back of the casino itself the park is far enough away from the interstate so that traffic noise is not a concern. All hookups worked fine and we had end space #26 which had plenty of room on the neighbor's side and a wide open area on the other. The security patrol comes to your space and gives you a ride to the casino and back and were there withing just a few minutes of calling them. Excellent buffet breakfast and at a reasonable price also. When we arrived the park was probably half full but by dark it was full to capacity and this was on a Sunday night. Will definitely stay here again if it works out time-wise on a future trip.................

What a great little park...!!! Heading north on I-5 we decided to try this park due to the excellent reviews it has been given by others. We arrived late in the afternoon and had made a reservation due to the limited number of overnight spaces available, usually only 6 to 8. We were met by a very friendly and helpful staff and the owner personally escorted us to our site. Very clean and well kept grounds and surrounding areas and the space itself was clean, easy to get in and out of and all hookups worked great. There is a well stocked general store where you check in. The park itself is about a 1/3rd of a mile off of the interstate so there is no traffic noise to be heard. Just silence and a good night's rest after a long day of driving. We will definitely stay here again the next time we are in the area and need to toss out the anchor for the night. I can understand why some folks stay for extended periods as it is like RVing right out in nature itself.

We used this park due to its convenience to family we were visiting in the area. Quaint little park with a lot of permanents but they were friendly and in one instance very helpful with a slight problem we had. Great little store on site that is used by the general public as well so it has many more items than most RV park stores do. We bought several items there. A really nice pool area and a small seasonal lake that gets all covered with algae and scum, etc. when not cleaned. The space was a tad tight to squeeze our Class A into but we managed. A small table is provided and hookups are convenient and okay. Would probably stay again when we are back in the area to visit but only then as there are much nicer parks further away.

This was a one nighter for us and we had no reservations. The park was pretty full when we pulled in and we ended up in what they call a premium space. We saw very little, if any, difference in it and the deluxe spaces close by but again, with no reservations we took what we could for the night. Nice park but a tad cramped and to us it seemed like a "busy body" atmosphere. We had no sooner hooked up and a couple came over and invited us to join them for a glass of wine. Nice gesture of course and we did take them up on their offer but didn't stay long as we were tired from driving, etc. Several other folks came by to find out as much as they could about us and we got a couple of other invites to stop by. Lots of party type folk seem to hang out at this park which is really not our thing when we travel. I guess we are a couple of old "stick-in-the-muds". We didn't use the facilities as we left early the next morning. We would stay here again if we passed thru the area at a time when we wanted to stop for the day but would not make it a final destination or a lengthy stay of any duration. A bit pricey for what we could see and they do tack on a $3/day electric charge which was a bit of a "shock" to us as most parks don't do this, or at least if they do it isn't shown as a separate charge. Overall it's an okay park to drop the anchor for a night. Hookups all worked fine for us in the space we were in and it is convenient to outside stores, local attractions, and gas, etc. The check in staff was friendly and helpful which is always nice.

We have stayed at this state campground twice in the past will continue to go back in the coming years. Situated just southwest of Tucson it is a really beautiful park to camp in. Wide paved roads inside the campground and many different spaces to choose from in three distinct loops. We stayed at the top of Loop A which is higher up and the view to the south from there is spectacular. Lots of area to walk with specifically marked trails that from the park out into the desert should you choose to do a hike or nature walk, etc. No water hookups but there are water spigots with hose attachments spaced throughout the park that you are free to use to fill your tank if you have a hose to run to them. Very close to the Old Tucson movie studios where many of the old westerns were filmed. About a file mile drive to the nearest markets and stores and there are several small cafes and restaurants to choose from also and many souvenir shops of course. This is our very favorite place to spend a week. And a week is all you get as you have to leave and stay away for a week before you can get back in. No reservations, first come first served basis only. Nothing like a typical RV park or resort, but every bit as nice and probably one of the quietest campgrounds you'd ever stay at. Peaceful, serene, with nature at its finest. Just be very careful walking around or a cactus will definitely jump out and bite the crap out of you. And yes those cactus needles really do hurt!!!

Prior to choosing Boulder Creek RV Resort we read all the reviews and were impressed by the number of high marks given this park. For the most part the marks are spot on and indicate just how nice and how conveniently located this park is for those traveling the Hwy 395 corridor. It is easy to find and entry off the main road is also easy and convenient. There were no pull thrus available so we took a back in space which was fine by us. The space was narrow and lined with boulders on each side but we did have enough clearance. Unfortunately some low hanging Pine branches that we didn't notice did scratch the side of our full height coach and we had to have them trimmed to move any further. We were assigned another space which we had no problem getting into. The office gal did take pictures and when we got home I turned in an estimate to have the scratches buffed out and touched up. It took almost a month but we were sent a check to cover 2/3 of the cost to do this. We were very pleased that the owner did offer to pay this in lieu of the fact they do have a damage waiver we signed when checking in. This shows us the park does care about their customers and to having them return to enjoy this great area and their park. We didn't use the facilities but did buy some things at the neat and well stocked camp store. Even though this park is right on Hwy 395 it was very quiet at night. We had neighbors all around but nobody was noisy or out of line. It is a bit dusty as it is mostly gravel and dirt but the trees do make for some nice shade when the sun gets to doing its thing at 90 plus degrees. Overall we would definitely recommend this park and would stay here again. One can incur a paint scratch here and there in any park with trees and tight spaces but when it's handled as our situation was those scratches quickly become a distant memory. What you do remember is how nice the park was overall.

What a great little RV park! Right off Hwy 395 at Topaz Lake and adjacent to a lodge and casino. We reserved a pull-through site on the upper level and found it to be level and with a filtered view of the lake. Short walking distance to the casino where we enjoyed a very good breakfast. Steak and eggs for $5.95 and one of the best 6 ounce top sirloins I have ever eaten. Even though it is situated right next to Hwy 395 there is little to no road noise, so sleeping was restful and relaxed. Easy and convenient check-in at the general store right next to the park. We will most definitely make this one of our overnight stops next time we are traveling this route.
