This park is mainly for monthly. They rent beat up travel trailers. The manager will rip you off. They charged us 325.00 a month, yet the ad in the paper says starting at 200.00. Dogs run loose. People are just a bunch of druggies, and if the manager doesn't like you, you're out! The owner is oblivious to the problems in the park; when we tried to complain he referred us to the manager. There is a pool, but it's empty and broken down. The place is run down, and ready to close. Please do not stay here. Things come up missing in the night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an empty lot in the middle of town with several run down trailers/motor homes. The sites are so narrow that the unit next to mine would very nearly hit my tow vehicle when they open their door. The only 30 amp spot has me partly in the driveway. I was welcomed with the "f" word coming out of one trailer and then another out of the other next to them. Oh joy! I had planned on staying two nights in hopes of getting my oil changed while in Alturas. I will wait and get out of here first thing in the morning and try at my next stop. I frankly do not know what possessed me to stay, except for the reservation I had made and I wished to honor; otherwise I would have driven off and gone back to a park I had seen as I came into town. Unless you are in Alturas to visit someone in the jail--which is across the street; or have business in the courthouse--which is also across the street, do not stay at this place. I have traveled all over California and the southwest and this is the ugliest, saddest "park" I have ever seen. Calling it "High Desert Resort" is a misnomer if there ever was one. I give it a two rather than a one because the "manager" was friendly and helpful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The owners are very nice, but the lots are TINY. You can reach and touch your RV and the next over. Monthly rates are cheap enough, but electricity is a bit high. The showers are free. There was/is a man staying here that creeped us out. He tries to walk into the showers while you're in there, ugh. We left in October before the big snows hit. If you're wanting an overnighter, it's OK. But if you plan on staying any longer, don't. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We planned on staying at this campground as it was advertised by Passport America and the reduced price was enticing. In our opinion this should not be listed as a campground. It looks like a very small, run down used car lot and the RVs there were parked so close you could stand between them and touch both at the same time without stretching a bit. There would have been no way to extend our one slide-out. It didn't look like there was any space to park anyway, as there were several RVs already there packed in like sardines and no space at either end of the line of them that we could tell, but a man standing outside tried to wave us in anyway. We just kept driving. We've traveled and camped at a lot of campgrounds over the years and are full-timers, and this was certainly one of the worst we've seen. Unless you really can't live without electric and water for a overnight stay, we'd recommend just boon docking somewhere and if you're staying for a while, we recommend looking elsewhere. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here because it was a Passport America affiliate. Normal rate would have been $30/night. They had 1 site available for over nighters - rest appeared to be permanent residents who didn't have pride of ownership. Sites were squeezed together with little room. Fortunately, the 1 site for over nighters is the biggest site. The hot tub, as noted in the directory, was the hot tub in the backyard of the residence out in the open. The person who greeted us and helped us to our site was friendly and courteous. We wouldn't have stayed there if it wasn't for the 1/2 price camping. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great park! Only a handful of sites for short term stays, all are paved pull-throughs with full hookups. Nice green grass and beautiful shade trees. Even though you can see Highway 395 about a quarter mile away, you cannot hear it. One mile to the lovely Modoc National Wildlife Refuge. Good Wi-Fi. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A nice spot for an overnight stay. Clean and tidy with nice easy pull throughs right off a quiet street across from a park where we could walk the cat. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
If you are looking for a friendly, quaint, clean and very pretty place to stay then this is it. There are no pools and golf courses so if you are into pomp and circumstance like so many people are on this site then don't stay here because you'll be disappointed, but if you want a beautiful, pet friendly and safe feeling environment then this place is great! We will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here for one night. It seemed that most of the other people staying at the campground either lived there permanently or they had been there for at least a week already. It is a small campground with friendly, helpful owners. The campground was clean. The bathrooms and showers were not spotless but adequate. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is basically a full-time residential park with between 5 and 10 spots available for transient RVer’s. The park appears to be quite old and the condition of its facilities was evidenced by the relatively low voltage (115 volts) experienced when I connected in mid-afternoon on a pleasant fall day. Cable TV is provided, but no Wi-Fi service is available. The host on duty was very friendly and made it a point to assist me in parking my vehicle. This is a good spot for an overnight in an area of California that does not offer a large selection of campgrounds. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The manager was very accommodating. He went out of his way to see to it that we were taken care of. We heartily recommend this park. It was clean and well kept with trees, well-maintained grass and flowers galore. A very pleasant experience! We camped here in a Motorhome.

Yes, this park is older, but it was clean and well-maintained. It had grass, beautiful flowers, shade, pull-through and back-in level sites, and was quiet. The owner is a nice gentleman who was always working to keep the grounds and campground in excellent condition. The park has free cable-TV connections. There is no Wi-Fi, but our Verizon air card worked great there. Laundry facilities were clean and adequate. The showers and bathroom were clean and adequate as well. The city park is right across the road from the campground and keeps the campground quiet with another nice view. Dogs are allowed (at the park as well - which makes for a nice place for them to exercise). It is in walking distance of downtown for shopping, eating, and the post office. There are a few extended-stay or permanent campers on site, but their campers were well-maintained and no noise was noted. We received a discounted weekly rate of $125 during our stay. Sully's advertises his park as "the best place to stay in Alturas, CA". This is absolutely true. The other three campgrounds we drove by were terrible and we wouldn't have stayed there, even with a discounted rate (and they were all charging between $20 and $30 a night). All-in-all we had a pleasant stay and would not hesitate to stay there again when in the area. Note: Sully's seemed to be full every day we were there. If you arrive before 4pm, you should get a spot - but not always, and it seemed very iffy after 4. Be safe and call ahead to reserve a site. You do not want to stay elsewhere in Alturas. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We basically just needed a place to stop for the night. This is an older RV and mobile home park located on the south end of town in a quiet neighborhood next to a city park. While not fancy by any means, it was adequate for a short stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
