Rate reflects Thousand Trails membership. We stayed here two weeks. This is a large and very active rv park that is staffed 24/7. As other reviewers commented, there are two sections to this park, one without sewer. We stayed in the main section and had full hookups. Weekends filled the park up pretty well, but during the week there were many sites available every day. Sites are all dirt. There is no TV, cell or internet service at the sites. Most of the sites are very spacious, but there is little shade. In our section there were two separate recreational areas, one for families and one for adults. There are several long term/permanent residents assembled primarily near the adult recreation amenities. All the facilities were in relatively good condition, although more routine maintenance and painting would be appreciated. The cafe serves pretty good home-style meals, each one enough to feed both of us. There is a pretty extensive lending library, and lots of activities going on. We enjoyed the pool and spa on the family side and there were virtually no children except on weekends. This is a good base for visiting San Diego on day trips, with easy access to Chula Vista, Jamul and El Cajon. Lots of border patrol activity. We made one trip into Tecate, MX for dental work. We would stay here again.

We are Thousand Trails Zone Pass members and have stayed in several Thousand Trails parks. We were not particularly impressed with this park. Most other reviewers mention the difficulty on the narrow winding road with blind curves going in and out of the park, so we disconnected our toad before going in, but DH says even with our 38' motor home we could have stayed connected and been okay. There are mirrors on all the blind curves and there is only one spot where two rigs could not pass. The long steep grades on the highway getting over the passes are bigger issues for the driver. The park was dusty, there is very little shade available at the sites, and most are a long steep walk to and from the amenities. The pools were open and one was heated a little bit, but full of leaves. We didn't use the amenities, and never even visited the lodges because of the dust and steep hill to walk there. Sites were spacious enough, and we loved the quiet (silence) and dark skies at night. The location and entry road make this a difficult location to use as base camp to visit Santa Barbara, Solvang, and other areas of interest. We would not stay here again.

Wow! We stayed here two nights on a Passport America rate which was a real bargain for this park. It looked virtually brand new, and was as beautifully appointed as we've ever seen in an RV park. Stamped concrete parking pads and patio spaces. Sites were long and wide, all with nice landscaping. We had to park our car right next to our 38' motor home and in front of the picnic table. Two pools and a spacious jaccuzzi were sparkling clean. Bathrooms and showers were almost elegant, with separate locking shower rooms complete with double vanity and dressing room. Extremely friendly staff, and maintenance crews all over the place working on landscaping and cleaning the property. There was a clubhouse and lounge which we did not go in. Small store. The one negative that other reviewers talk about is the very close proximity to the freeway. Our site backed right up to the freeway. We were not at all bothered by the noise while inside, and slept well. It's well located for visiting the numerous wineries in the area. For its exceptional cleanliness and beautiful appointments, we give it the highest rating possible, and would love to stay here again.

We are Thousand Trails Zone Pass members and stayed here 3 nights. It is the lowest rated Thousand Trails park we have been in so far. Staff didn't seem all that friendly or attentive. All amenities seemed to be functional, but the state of repair of most of the facility was sub par. Lots of little kids living there. My biggest complaint, however, was the trashy state of rigs and sites of the long term/permanent residents--rusty, dirty, wind-torn. This is the only park I've stayed in where I have ever truly been concerned for my safety and security. We parked in the far back portion of the park to get as far away from the long terms as we could. Very dusty sites required blocks to get level with our motor home. Not all sites had picnic tables. There were lots of sites with shade, although most of them were taken by long termers. We would not stay here again.

Staff was ready for us when we checked in, but we were disappointed that she didn't give us any information about the bus to Yosemite which stops right in the park, nor did she seem to know anything about local activities like the festival happening in Groveland that weekend. The campsite we had was right on the river with 50 amps, water and sewer, and was comfortable. The site next to us, however, was so narrow that if someone had pulled in there our rigs would have been right on top of one another. Not all sites have 50 amps and not all have sewer, although most were level or nearly level. The main draw for this campground for us was its proximity to Yosemite Park--just 5 or 6 miles from the West Gate Entrance. Our rig is too big for camping inside the park so this is as close as we could get. And we were really glad we were so close since Yosemite is so big and requires so much driving, anyway. We missed having a pool, and particularly a spa, when we returned every day after hiking. The restrooms and showers were in portable units but very clean and nice. We didn't use them, however. There are things for kiddos like mini golf and a clubhouse, but the few children we saw (teenagers) appeared to be bored to the bone. We enjoyed the little town of Groveland about 18 miles from the park, and had breakfast at a coffee house, lunch at the chili-cookoff, and snacks and beverages at Irondoor Tavern. We found the people in Groveland to be exceptionally friendly. We would return to this park if in Yosemite again.

We very much enjoyed our stay here. The park itself is very nice, and the permanent residents maintain their spaces very nicely for the most part. Sites are spacious and clean and well maintained, with concrete pads for rv and car, picnic table and some shade trees. Only complaint is that many sites (both pull through and back-in) are difficult to maneuver because of the large corner rocks. Husband usually has no problem whatsoever even when others complain about difficulty, but we struggled with this one. Enjoyed the golf course on site which was in decent condition for 9-hole course, and fun to play, even though greens are not great. Reservations and check in were fast and friendly. We used the spa tub which was very clean and comfortable, but not quite hot enough. Pool isn't heated, so it was a little cold for us to use. Would have rated the park higher if not for the difficulty maneuvering into the sites.

We were very happy with this park. It is everything you want in an RV park, plus really friendly helpful staff. Located right off I-5 we didn't notice traffic noise at all. The grounds were attractive, with lots of shade trees that really helped in the 100 degree heat. The pool and spa were super clean and attractive. Sites were level concrete with some grass and picnic tables. Hookups well maintained and worked well. Maintenance person on site all day every day. Quiet. Lots of permanents but all good looking and well maintained in separate areas of the park. We had a pull-through site; easy to access on paved roads throughout the park. Groceries and other shopping one and two exits away on the interstate made our stay real easy. A great choice, and we would definitely choose to stay here again.

The most friendly owner/staff we have encountered in an RV park in 6 months. We extended our stay a couple days to enjoy the Rogue River. Location made it an easy pick. Pull-through sites for overnighters. Ours was spacious and private, easy to maneuver. Lots of natural space, great fenced off-leash dog park. Gravel throughout, but not a lot of dust. Our site was nearly level. Several permanents but they were very well cared for, and friendly. Very well stocked store as it also serves the surrounding community. The only real amenity is the creek and waterfall but because of the drought, there is no water. So, for the price it is a good choice. We would stay here again.

Clean park, easy access, paved roads. All sites were neat and clean, easy to maneuver. Hookups at rear of level sites. Indoor pool was warm, showers and bathrooms were clean. Staff was very friendly. Location is excellent for visiting Albany, or heading north-south on I-5, and there is a Walmart nearby. Adjacent to major community park. We would definitely stay here again.

This was a very nice rv park, well located, easy to find and access. Practically brand new. All sites were nearly perfectly level concrete pads with gravel or grass patio areas and picnic table, along with extra car pad. They were nicely arranged and spaced throughout the park. There were several long pull through sites. The restrooms and showers are modern and very clean, and the showers even had heaters running so it was warm. I don't think we've been anywhere as clean and neat as this park. Quiet at night. We would definitely stay here again when in the area. You will need a car to go to restaurants and stores.

Stayed here one night on our way through Oregon. Sites and interior roads were gravel. After registering, you do need to drive back into street and behind office into the park, but there was ample room and no problem at all doing this with 38' motor home and toad. Staff is very friendly and helpful and we took the suggestion to walk through town and look at the murals. Glad we did. Our site was a pull through and just barely accommodated our rig with toad attached. Water and electric were located at rear of site, requiring every inch of the length of our hose and cord. Sewer was well located. Lots of cable channels. Our site was quite shaded and might have compromised satellite access, and other sites seemed okay for satellite, but we didn't need it. Restrooms and laundry were dated, but very clean and everything worked well. The park has ice and propane which was convenient. We would stay here again.

Stayed here one night midweek when less than 1/3 spaces were occupied. Ample number of super long pull throughs, along with other pull throughs. Level sites, neat, clean, green grass, utilities well located and worked fine. Water, Gray-water hookups and electric only--no sewer, but there is a dump station on site. Park is easy to find and access from US 93, on the South side of Cactus Pete's. Decent restaurants in the casinos to walk to. Had good luck at Cactus Pete's casino, too, making it a very enjoyable stop. Would rate a 10 if it had sewer hookups and cable.

This campground inside Zion NP is clean and neat, with spacious level sites including a table and fire pit. We were happy we had reserved a spot because the campground was full the entire time we were here. There are some walk-in sites available, but they go early in the morning. Watchman is an easy stroll to the Visitor Center where you catch a shuttle to all stops up the canyon. What a great way to manage a very busy park. We hiked, we enjoyed the river that flows right by the campground, and we made a day trip to Bryce Canyon. It was so nice to be able to have a real campfire at night. The campground was quiet and the restrooms were very clean. There are no showers, but there is plenty of water available at several sites inside the campground. For a National Park, we were surprised how many long level sites there were to accommodate big rigs, in the A Loop, but the other loops didn't have so many. Ranger programs were available and interesting, and rangers were present and helpful throughout the park. There are several easy hikes, and lots of wildlife to observe, often up close. We would definitely return to this campground.

This was our first experience with TT campgrounds using our Zone Pass. Like others, we were surprised and dismayed that we had to hunt for a campsite, and since we arrived in the busy season close to 5:00 p.m. the picking was slim. Sites were oddly laid out, some with grass, some without, some with almost no personal space, and I think all had shared utility post locations. We ended up in a site that had quite an incline to the personal area, although nearly level gravel pad for our 38' RV. I don't like the idea that you have no particular site available. Once settled though, we discovered the park was a true resort park, with heated pool, hot tub, clubhouse, recreation facilities and lots of planned activities including live music and dancing on Saturday nights. We enjoyed our one-week stay and it was convenient enough to all the attractions and activities of the larger Sedona area.

Our stay here was perfect for the three days we spent in Santa Fe. Location is great, with a bus stop right in front of the park, for a $1 a day, 25 minute ride to downtown. This park is neat and clean, and our premium site had a level concrete pad, table, and plenty of shaded green grass at the back of the site. There were smaller sites with no grass and gravel pads. The bathrooms and showers were clean. Utilities were well placed, and we were guided into the back-in site by staff who made sure we were well positioned. We had trees over our site, but didn't have any problem with them. We used our own hot spots instead of the park's WiFi which seemed to slip in and out of connection. Lots of cable channels. All in all a very pleasant place to hang out, and we felt safe and secure at all times. The park is located on a major thoroughfare, with every conceivable shop and service in both directions. Be sure to call or read website directions to get to the park as navigation devices take you a problematic route. We would rate this park a 10 if it had a pool. We would definitely stay here again if we return to Santa Fe.
