Very clean park with nice concrete pads wide enough for a patio and picnic table. Laundry is very narrow with stacked washer/dryers and a folding shelf. Very little room to navigate around others who are using the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A great spot for an overnight stay on your way somewhere else. A bit noisy with being so close to the freeway. You are parked close to other campers and there are quite a few permanents there. Nice dog run areas and very clean and well kept. I stop here to and from quite often. Laundry facilities looked new and clean. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park really is a gem; especially, for the price in California. From the friendly folks at check in, to the really nice clean park, it was a pleasure to stay here. We had a great pull though site where we didn't have to unhook our tow. The utilities we're laid out where they should be. The site was a good size with easy in and easy out. A lot of parks could take some lessons from these people. Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We loved this park except on Mondays. A crew came in with mowers and blowers every Monday. Since it is very dusty there the crew would blow dust all over our RV and car and when they were done we were thoroughly covered in dust. We stayed a month and was cleaning dust out of our rig for months. Complaints were answered with a shrug. I suggest your stay does not include Monday mornings. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed one month so was put in the residential area where there were no concrete pads, just lots of dust and the spaces are too narrow got a big rig with slides. They have an ant problem and we ended up with them in our rig, kitchen and bathroom. Also, every Monday the yard crew came around and blew dust on our rig and car and it blew into the slides. If you stay shorter term the sites are nice and not as much dust. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here one night on our way to Yosemite. Lovely park and very clean. With a few exceptions all spaces are large pull thru spaces. Staff was very friendly at check-in. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have overnighted at this park many times and have given very high marks; however, this trip has had us take off a few points for these reasons. While overall park is well-maintained, that darn maintenance started at 7AM right under our windows (mowers, edgers). We sent in a reservation request weeks ahead of time and were confirmed by email. So far, so good. But the confirmation email neglected to remind us of the summer office hours and that we'd need to call for the gate code if we arrived late. Thank goodness we arrived before the gates closed. Office staff needs to include this information (and the total cost) when confirming reservations. We had to wait till 9AM to pay because we weren't sure of the exact price (not sure if $33 was total, or if they'd add tax). Physical plant is wearing out; our picnic table was cracked and unusable. Big contrast to when we first started coming here, and everything was pristine. We hope that management reinvests in front office processes and maintenance (and at decent hours) and brings the park back to its previous good quality. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park was a nice surprise! Sites were spacious & level. Grounds very well maintained with lots of green grass. Park is pet friendly, has a great area for dogs to run. The only negative was the Laundry room which was very small & not air conditioned. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park is neat as a pin. Good paved interior roads, large pull thrus with concrete pads and a nice patch of neatly trimmed (almost golf course type of grass). There are about three rows of pull thrus and the outer perimeters are mostly full timers. That being said, the park is off of CA58 and as we were driving along that patch of highway, my husband and I were shocked at the amount of trash on the highway medians. As we took the Fairfax Road exit, I was questioning whether I wanted to stay in this part of town. The exit medians were full of trash and you could tell that you were in the older part of town. But as we pulled into the RV park, it was like a different world. We stayed in a 45' motorhome for two weeks and had plenty of room. We're new to RVng so I'm not sure if this is the norm, but the park would fill up by 3 or 4 p.m. and the park emptied out by 1 or 2. I think this a stop over for a lot of folks. There is a small grocery/meat market called Roberts Market (turn right out of the park and go down about 1/2 mile - it's on the left). Had really good prices and good cuts of meat in their meat market. Also, Rusty's Pizza delivers and although a little pricy, we had a great pizza. After we had been there a few days, we started doing all of our shopping, groceries, etc. in the South side of Bakersfield (newer grocery stores, shopping centers, etc.) Once you get past the first impression that has nothing to do with the park, it's a nice place to stay. There is some street noise but we got used to it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here on one of our trips to Southern California. Have previously stayed at another park in town and decided to try something new. It certainly did not disappoint. Sites were level and easy to access. There was a great area to play "dog frisbee". It was quiet. The train noise did not bother us at all. It is about 6 miles east of Bakersfield, which meant a bit of a drive to get groceries, etc. but all in all worth it and we will stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Everything you've read is true. We stayed here twice in the past month, once going to the desert and once coming back for two days. After all the oranges were eaten from the first trip could not wait to get back for more of the best oranges I've ever had. When people talk about orange trees at each site they're not kidding. Large trees heavy with fruit in January, picking poles make it a snap to get your fill. I can't imagine all the campers in the world even picking all these oranges! Best Wi-Fi I've seen in an RV park ever, very fast and very strong. I needed propane and the staff picked up my empty bottle, filled it and returned it to my rig. As mentioned coffee in the office and fat pills every morning. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was a decent park, but the previous ratings were a little lofty for the amenities we found. This was a good park for an over night stay, but not much of a destination park. Lots of long time residents, but the sites are reasonably neat. There is minimal road noise from the 58, but not too bad. Out site was paved, but most of the long term sites were dirt. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice RV park! Sites were level, grass was trimmed and neat, the pool was nice, and the restrooms and showers were clean. The only reason we did not give this park a 10 was because there weren't very many trees. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is the first park I have given a 10 to. It is awesome and the people in the office are so friendly and helpful. Most sites have a nice grassy yard and the spaces are all concrete. Each has a picnic table. They really keep everything nice. Easy on and off the freeway and while you hear the traffic noise somewhat when you are sitting outside, you can't hear it in your rig. It is a gated park and they have a nice club house you can use along with a store. Great place and we will definitely stay here again. Rate reflects Good Sam discount. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects Good Sam/AAA discount. This is now our 5th time staying as we head across CA to go back East. Clean, tidy, safe, easy to arrive after hours (call to get the code first!), nice areas to exercise the dog, and easy place to launch out over the Tehachapi Pass in the morning. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I have stayed at this park a number of times and will stay again when in the area. The owner knows how to run a park. Clean, clean, clean. Long, wide concrete pull-throughs. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a clean and well kept park. It's location just off hwy 58 has easy access on and off. It's gated at night for an extra added feeling of security in the city. Friendly staff and good diesel prices close. I would stay here again when in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Stayed overnight. Easy on and off Highway 58. Easy pull-through. Immaculate clean! Nice pool, peaceful environment. So close to highway, but you do not hear it. Dog friendly, even a long dog run (dirt) for large dogs! Flowers and grass that is well kept. Loved it. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was a very nice park. Lady in office was friendly and helpful. Pulled in, no level required. Set up and that was it. Only stayed one night on way back across country. Would stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Stayed here for a month. Has excellent, easy access and super nice staff! Sites were very large, could accommodate both of our vehicles plus a 34' fifth wheel with no problem. Grounds keeping was immaculate. Laundry reasonably priced and the pool was well maintained. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice park extremely close to Hwy 58 so it is easy to find and easy to exit. Park looks new. It's very well kept with on the ball management. Everything works well. The spots are long, wide and flat. I would not like this park for more than a day or two. No shade at all and the spots have no visual separation between them. It's just a flat spot with nice, new and flat concrete pads. Really pet friendly, along the fence line there are dog doo bag dispensers, a dog run at one end of the park and lots of lawns. I would stay here again while passing this way. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed five nights and really enjoyed this park. As the name suggests, there are roosters crowing, the sound of horses, and the smell of manure on occasion. There are many long-term campers here, but the short term folks seem to be located together. Only a couple of sites were not well kept. We did not try the pool, but it looked very nice. Park is small but gated. The sites are level, concrete or gravel, many with grass between, lots of dumpsters, and grassy areas for the pets. The atmosphere is laid-back and relaxed without unnecessary rules, but there are apparently many rude guests who are not picking up after their dogs despite bags being provided. Wi-Fi worked very well as did our Verizon. We will definitely stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is our place to spend a night when traveling through Bakersfield. Sites are level, paved and hookups that have always worked. Sites are long enough to leave our tow connected. Nice office staff and neighbors. We have noticed that more sites are long term, leaving fewer overnight spots. So far that hasn't been a problem because we usually pull in by 3 PM, suggest reservations if you will be pulling in much later. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Large, level cement pads, almost all pull-throughs. Good 50 amp power. Streets and sites are wide and easy to navigate. There are dog waste bag dispensers placed around the border of the park. The very large fenced dog run is in the back corner of the park. Strong, fast Wi-Fi. Fair Verizon data signal, good voice signal. The bathrooms and showers were large, modern, and clean. Our furnace was out, so we were using heat pumps and space heaters; the 50 amp power was very strong--no large voltage drop. We will probably make this our regular stop when we go through Bakersfield in the future, even though there was a strong manure smell there when we left in the morning. There appears to be a horse arena next door, and the wind shifted overnight. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The managers of the park are not people friendly or whoever works in the office they do not welcome you if you stay month to month don't go into the office with complaints they will swear at you and be hateful to you they are charging out rages prices on electric to a lot of the permanent people there due to meters being out dated and not working properly. The bathrooms were always dirty and the grounds keeper does not do his job. Overnights are okay just don't stay very long you will be disappointed. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a neat, clean park for short-term stays. Wi-Fi now included in the $33 nightly rate and it was adequate. We were on a concrete pad with some grass beside. There are gravel pads also. Limited shower and restroom facilities, but they didn't seem to be used that much so were available. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is conveniently located right off of Hwy 58. Check in was very quick and easy. The park is very neat and clean with paved roads and concrete pads. I used the 50 amp hook ups and the water and both worked well. The park isn't in an area that appears to have a lot going on, but if you are looking for one night stop over spot I would highly recommend this place. I would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is conveniently located off Hwy 58. Sites were sufficiently long for pull-through requests and were concrete with a nice picnic area and grass. Dog walk areas were very spacious and included one fenced in area for off-leash activity. Laundry facilities were well-kept. We received the Good Sam discount ($30 price reflects discount). We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a clean park with some freeway noise. Sites are 25 by 65 foot nearly-level concrete pads, with little or no shade. Sites are separated by grass strips, which are mowed early in the morning. Roads are wide, asphalt, in good condition.. Staff are courteous. Verizon data service works well. The rate is with tax. Showers are clean but lack privacy. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great overnight spot; we've used it now 3 or 4 times going in/out of California. Very tidy, very level, very well run park with great amenities for dogs. Easy off/on Hwy 58. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very clean, well maintained park. Level sites mostly on cement slabs with grass in between. My dog loved the grass dog run. Wi-Fi and cable TV was good (Wi-Fi is $3 per night). Easy in and out off HWY 58 with good security. Great park. We will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a terrific park. Neat, clean with concrete pads with grass between. There was a some freeway noise but not too bad. We would definitely stay here again if we are passing through Bakersfield. We camped here in a Motorhome.
My first stay at this fine resort. Long and wide concrete pull-through site. Almost all sites are pull-thoroughs. Friendly staff. A pet friendly park. Easy access from freeways. I will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is a well-kept secret and one we will stay in again. The roads are blacktopped and the sites are either cement or crushed rock and level. They have a pool and the people running the park are friendly and helpful. We used this as a one night stop on our way to Yosemite and will come back when we are in the area and stay longer. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a great park located right in Bakersfield. It has easy access from the freeway, but is not so close to have lots of traffic noise. We stayed here on our way south in January. This park has great pull-through sites that make it easy for an overnight stay, but it seems pleasant enough if one were going to stay longer. The office staff was friendly and everything in the park is immaculate. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great stop over place. Right off 58 which is very convenient. We get a site in the back which allows us to park both rigs (we have two tow vehicles - one with quad trailer) side by side. Nice pool and spa. You can hear the highway, but it's not too bad. For an overnight spot, it's great. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is great for an overnight stay with long pull throughs not requiring you to unhook your toad. The sites are wide with a concrete pad. There are many long timers at this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A newer park with all pull-through sites, most gravel, 18 paved. Mostly long term sites on the N along the freeway, short term and overnight on the S (the paved sites). The south side is adjacent to a stable and riding school. If you are here for more than an overnight, you notice the stable (earlier if the wind is blowing in the right direction) along with the increase in the fly population. Rate listed reflects the weekly rate. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was our second stay at this park. We stop here as a mid-way point. The pads are concrete and wide and plenty of room on the pull-through's not to have to unhook your tow vehicle. The staff was, and still is very friendly and the park was and still is as clean the second time around as the first. The streets are also wide for easy in and out access. Easy access from the Freeway also. It was a pleasant stop over again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A very well maintained site. We stayed overnight. Sites are OK size (good pull through) and facilities are basic but in really good shape. Not sure what I would do in the park long term or in Bakersfield long-term but a good overnighter or few days site! Friendly office. $4 for internet service was a bit much for one night (especially since I signed up for the month with Tengo but can't seem to use it now. Also lost the connection after a few hours and the network had a "funny" name after that. Seemed secure, but not sure with the different name We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very easy to get to. Excellent to maneuver in. Friendly people. Clean and neat. We were very satisfied with the park and will put it on our list to return to if we return to the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Such a nice park for an overnighter. Everything was kept immaculate. Office personnel was very nice and helpful. Would definitely stay here again if needed. It was just off the route we needed to travel the next day anyway. This was a Good Sam Park also. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great place to stay over on your way somewhere else. Clean and neat - grass at each site, well maintained (you could putt on it), nice level concrete pads. Plenty wide. We've stayed at other near by parks, and this is the best for passing through. The only problem on this visit is the pay for wi-fi. Four bucks and nothing but trouble and no help from the provider (The Wireless Web). Told me to get a better antenna. I was standing under their antenna. Anyway - plenty of cable channels (Comcast), but nothing on. Not their fault. Will return on my way through. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Concrete level pads. Area around the park is a little concerning. Restaurants are on the opposite side of town. Staff was helpful. Just an overnight type park. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a clean RV park that makes staying here a joy. Sites are long, wide and level. Hookups are well located and easy to access. Cable TV is very good and Verizon air card works well here. Showers/restrooms are clean and modern. Nice swimming pool and hot tub although we did not have time to use them. If we had known this park was this nice we would not have committed ourselves down the road and stayed here longer. We would come here again if we were anywhere close to this area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Excellent place to overnight. We had a large, diagonal pull-through which made it easy in, easy out. Pads are concrete and level. Amazingly quiet considering the nearby freeway. We would stop here again for an overnight. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice spot to overnight. Close to Highway 58 but there's limited traffic noise. Nice wide and level sites, strong electric and very clean facilities. Large grassy field for the dogs which ours loved as it was the first green grass in months!!! Would stay here again when passing through. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stopped for an over-nighter. Twenty of the sites are level concrete, with the other sites gravel. 50-channel cable TV worked fine. Wi-Fi was $4 per day with excellent speed. Restrooms and showers were clean. Park has a nice pool and hot tub. Some Highway-58 noise at night. Security gate at night: get code from office if you're going out for the evening. This entire RV Park was one of the cleanest we've ever stayed in. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
There was nothing special about this RV park except that it was very clean and the sites were level. It shows that the owners take a lot of pride in keeping the park clean. They have some nice lemon trees and we were able to pick some of the lemons. Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice clean park with a cute store. Staff helpful, if not friendly. Great for a overnight stop. Clean throughout and good pull throughs. Didn't use the Wi-Fi. Would stay again if going that way. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was fine for an overnight stop although a bit too much like car park for our tastes. However, for the brief time we were there we had good wi-fi connection, were able to walk the dog in an off leash area, and used the clean laundry room which could be larger given the size of the park, but on the whole it was OK. It is close to the interstate, and there is traffic noise and train noise during the night. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice, clean park with easy access in and out, and nice pads for RVs. No shade. Their website stated Wi-Fi and store available. We found the Wi-Fi is not included: costs $4 a day. It is pretty slow, a little faster than dial-up. Not a problem if you are only checking e-mail, but it was for me. The "store" is nothing more than a poorly stocked shelf. Overall, a pretty nice park, but the internet and store availability are not what is advertised. We camped here in a Motorhome.

This is one of the cleanest RV parks I have ever seen. We liked it so well we stayed here twice in the same trip. The grounds are well manicured, the bathrooms and showers are spotless and the pool and spa are sparkling. There was lots of room for pullouts. It is great for overnight stays or longer. Very quiet, away from the freeway, but not too far (within a mile). We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park, with easy access into and out of. Nice large sites and the only thing that's lacking is shade. Couldn't get cable to work, but no big deal. Staff was very friendly. We will certainly return We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park was very comfortable and quiet to live in. The rates are reasonable, and the facility is in good condition. The pool and hot tub area are extremely well cared for, and open for use any time, as long as you are quiet late at night. The staff was very nice and helpful, very service oriented. The office has a little store area, with a few items, but not a lot. And you can receive mail there, in boxes inside the office, for no extra charge. I really liked the automatic gate at the entrance, which closes at night, and you get a code to get in and out. I will definitely stay here next time I go to Bakersfield. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Park is great with grass between concrete pads and all have picnic tables. Wide pull through for the big rigs and still room for my F350 truck parked sideways in front of my pad. Easy access off the highway. Many fast food and sit down restaurants close by. Would stay here again, this park is very quiet. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is one of the best parks that we always enjoy on our yearly trips to Las Vegas. We have stayed in all the campgrounds in Bakersfield and if there is one rule of campgrounds in Bakersfield is that they are all next to railroad tracks. You may not see them when you arrive but you will at 3am! This is restful, has wonderful amenities, is clean and spotless, is very inexpensive. They also have fantastic cable which for us was nice as we don't have satellite. They also have wireless thorough the park and it works quite well. Most importantly it is quiet and you can get a good nights sleep. We usual sleep with the windows open and it very restful. I would highly recommend this park for anyone staying in Bakersfield. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an excellent RV Park, the access was great with plenty of width for the pull through. Staff was very friendly, we certainly would recommend this park if you are staying in the Bakersfield area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The only change in the park from previous reviews is that they have made more of the sites concrete rather than the dirt/gravel. Makes it much nicer. This is a great place for an overnight stop or to visit in the area. We have been here several times and it never changes: friendly staff, everything nice and clean, sparkling pool. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stay here on over night trips to northern California. The park is easily accesses from the interstate. It is clean and maneuvering a large motorhome into spaces is easily done. Although the sites are mostly unshaded they are clean and neatly maintained. Each site has a picnic table. It is perfect for an overnight stay, but I would not think of this park as a destination rv resort park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We overnighted here on our way back from AZ. The staff was very nice and accommodated our request to move from our no grass pull through, to a site with grass. The width of the spots was very good and we had a nice long, level pull through. Our particular site wasn’t paved, but we were willing to sacrifice that for the grass next to us. More mature trees would have been nice. We did not use the showers, but we did enjoy their pool and since it was very hot, we appreciated that they let our young daughter in with swim diapers. The cable didn’t work at our site, but since we were only there for one night it wasn’t a big deal and we hijacked the connection from the empty site next to us. Overall a very nice stay in a clean park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
WOW - after reading several prior comments, had a major concern with this one. However, VERY pleasantly surprised. Big sites, easy access, easy internal roads, fully paved. Too bad we are merely staying overnight. Will clearly return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We used it as a stopover to and from Arizona. Easy access, plenty of room for extra vehicle and quad trailer (note: in addition to 5er and truck). It was a spotless park. There's traffic noise, but it's fine for an overnight. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The past reviews for this park seem to be all over the map. This was the second time that we have stayed at this park, and we really like it. It is a convenient place to layover for a few days when travelling through California on the way to the Southwest. The park is clean, and the sites are large, if somewhat close together. Coming from the rainy Northwest, we get a big kick out of camping among the orange trees and picking oranges. Contrary to one poster's comments, we have found these to be the juiciest, tastiest oranges we've ever had. Free Wi-fi is available, but only in certain areas so let the staff know you want it when you check in or make your reservation. We also took advantage of the area set aside for washing cars and rigs. The laundry rooms have front-loading high efficiency washers and that was nice. There are free coffee and donuts in the office each morning, and the recreation facility is decorated in a cute log cabin/mountain retreat theme. When we checked in we received a coupon good for $2 off our next visit. The park wasn't very full when we were there this time, but the lady in the office said that they are very busy in January, so it's a good idea to make reservations at that time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice clean park. Very well maintained. Wide spaces. Hookups all worked . Wi-Fi was nearly non-existant. Don't come here looking for a "camping experience." It's not that kind of place. Very good spot to overnight. Would come back if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have stopped here several times and have always found the park to be clean and well maintained. There are always a lot of people here that appear to be somewhat long-term, but the sites are always clean. One section is just gravel, but the others have a small patch of grass between them. Lots of small trees, but not large enough for shade. There is a strong Wi-Fi signal at the site--but for $3/day, I don't use it. I consider this a nice stop for a few days. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had site #2: a level, paved, FHU pull-through that was a decent size for our 30 ft class A. The park is very well kept, easy in and out, (not far from the freeway, we got a little noise but not troublesome) with good cable. This was a very good stop over place for us. We'd use it again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good RV park. The Wi-Fi is available for $3 per day, ask in the office. Has cable TV; concrete and gravel level sites; wide pull throughs; a grass patch with a picnic table. Good Sam discount. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Large RV park, with pool that was very crowded. It was extremely hot. It was just okay for the night. The female clerk was particularly grumpy. The worst thing about the park was the power. The Voltmeter registered less than 110 Volts AC. That means if you ran your AC (A must) you should not run your Microwave as the power drain could blow out either or both. We camped here in a Motorhome.
More of a volume tightly packed RV Park. It is clean, and very well kept. The sites are ample and there's plenty of room on either side. The overnight spots are mostly gravel. I think longer stays get a small lawn area. They stored RV's across the isle from the campers, which is not particularly pretty to look at. Overall, an ok place. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is very clean, neat park with friendly, knowledgeable staff. The pool and hot tub were clean and well cared for. The pullthrough sites were level and solid although not paved. Cell phone and computer air card reception was very good. There is a large green space to exercise dogs. All facilities were clean and modern. We would return to this RV park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Decent overnight spot when traveling through Bakersfield. We stayed 4 nights while visiting family in the area, then returned and spent two more nights after a trip to Indio. Only drawback is the messy decomposed granite/dirt on the pad. The "overnight" spots don't have any grass or concrete, so you track the gravel/dirt into the motorhome/trailer. Still, basically a good spot in Bakersfield. Friendly staff and place was very clean and neat. Good access for Big Rigs in pull-throughs (no trees to hit). We stayed here in April/May of 2006 with a 42 footer with towed vehicle. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed overnight, quiet for being close to Hwy 58, very clean RV park and restrooms, paved roads and level gravel sites. 100 pull-throughs, full hookups, cable TV at site, phone jack at site for $1 (modem), they were in process of getting Wi-Fi. Nice pool and hot-tub. No shade if you're here in summer. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice and level. Small gass patch with small tree at most sites (some just level gravel w/hook-ups). Near freeway, but little road noise. Lots of transient workers. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
[ 8 / 10 ]
Fairly new park, level sites, pull-through, small trees. Close to State Hiway 58, but very little road noise. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
[ 8 / 10 ]
The nicest, newest park in the Bakersfield area. Grass at every site and a very nice park/pool area. If you are overnighting, or just traveling and would like to stay in the Bakersfield area, this is the best place to stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

CA. is hot but everyone builds their parks with no real means of shade. Trees do grow here. I noticed they build on top of each other also. The rent is high verses the economy. Around here they play games for you getting in full time. Like waiting lists or they are not taking full timers when they really do. What happened to first come first served? Not very honest up front. Why? This is the best park for the area. The water pressure gets very low at times. The bathrooms are very clean and so is the pool. Parking is a breeze. Level and hard no need for blocks. Has laundry room and store for snacks. This park will soon be getting bigger. Big family owned and operated. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
[ 9 / 10 ]
A fairly new park that is expanding. Shade trees planted, but not mature yet. Grassy areas with tables/benches between sites. Exceptionally friendly and cooperative staff. All facilities (restromms/showers/laundry)are extremely clean and well serviced. Small store included in office. We camped here in a camper.
Have used this park many times going from AZ to Or. It has steadly gone down hill. The bathrooms are not very clean, the pool was even dirty looking. The hot tub was not very hot. The new area for overnighters is right next to the train tracks and the train runs all night long. Think it is time to try somewhere new. We camped here in a Motorhome.
When driving by this looks like a nice park. Upon closer inspection you realize looks can be deceiving. We were intending to stay for several months while waiting for a house to be built. The long term spaces are rather small and only gravel, but as the park is less than one third full this was a non-issue to me. The overnight spots are nicer and are concrete pads. The railroad is across Edison Highway which is just a four lane road with a small concrete median so the trains sound like they are running through the park. We actually got used to it surprisingly quickly. The pool and spa area are clean but the temperature is rather cool for a "heated" pool and spa. I would not consider this family friendly due to a large number of "shady" characters who roam the park at all hours and the cars that drive through with stereos blasting loud enough to shake our 30' travel trailer. There seemed to be a drug dealer who gets visitors for a couple of minutes at a time that don't bother to turn down their music or even turn off their cars even at 3 in the morning. There are dogs running loose all the time and it seems like most owners do not clean up after their pets. The dog area and play area are separated by a short wooden fence and both areas are used for dog walking. Make sure to hold your breath when you dispose of your dogs waste as the trash cans in the dog run area were not emptied in the entire time we stayed here. There are several long term residents who are very nice and friendly but there are just as many that seem to get regular drive-by's by either the county sheriff or the probation department. We decided to move early because we did not feel safe walking the dog unless carrying a firearm. Wi-Fi is spotty, sometimes good sometimes almost nonexistent. This park is located within easy access of Highway 58. I would not stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Section of park dedicated for overnighters was nice and well laid out. Location of utility pillar required some "creative" parking if you have a slide-out you want to extend and for your power cord to reach. Staff was very informative and provided a full page of pool rules and another full page of Wi-Fi info which contained everything except the name of their connection which is actually "office 5139" which leads you to Tengo I, the actual Wi-Fi provider. One activity you can enjoy is counting the number of trains which pass directly along the north side of the overnighter area. I lost count somewhere around 40. Although the trains were noisy, we still got a good night's sleep. Rate shown was after discounts for memberships. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Overnight section is set up well for modern RV's. Trains and/or noise were a non issue. Not much of a pet area for walks. There are some very scary individuals residing in the permanent area. In the AM, I wanted to take a shower, but there was a young man loitering in the restroom. He kept pestering people as he wanted to "borrow a bar of soap". For my own safety, I decided it was not best to shower there. Also, saw gang bangers wearing their hoodie walking about the long-term area. I did not feel safe in this park. Appears there may be 2 or 3 other RV park alternatives in the area. I will not return to this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The newer section for overnight is very nice. Has patio with table. We give it a 10 as the trains don't bother us. If you don't want to hear trains I would advise you to go somewhere else. Very clean and they give you a discount for your next stay that is good forever. Staff is friendly, we will stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The park is very clean. Sites are all concrete and level. The full hookups are easy to use. The overnight camp area is next to the train tracks. The trains run all night. I am going to try another park next week when I return to Bakersfield. There is no restaurant at the location as had been reported in one review. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very clean well managed park. Sites are long concrete pads, perfectly level, with stone patio. There is free Wi-Fi for one night that is very weak and slow. I would have rated this park a 10 except for the trains. They run right behind the overnight parking area. The rate reflects the Good Sam discount. We camped here in a Motorhome.
My family and I stay here every time we leave to go north towards Idaho or Oregon. The campgrounds are clean, it is pet friendly, there's a pool and a restaurant that has some good food. The people there are friendly too! We will definitely continue coming back here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The new, very clean and well maintained overnight area is great. Hookups are well laid out and there is a 2nd sewer hookup for those trailers that need it. The trees need a few years before shade is available, but the picnic table was nice. Staff was helpful and friendly. The only thing that keeps this from getting a 10 is the trains which, like others have said are close and loud. We sort of got used to the noise, but they were still loud. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Excellent, newly built section for overnight visitors with concrete pads, picnic tables, palm trees, excellent utilities. It has very courteous staff. There is a nice pool and spa and other amenities. The only negatives would be the train and road noise which is why I rate this park as an 8 rather than a 10. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great park, good price, bad location. We were in their "Exclusive Overnight Area" with only one site and a few feet of road (around the end of the row of sites) between us and the railroad tracks and highway. The trains ran all night long and felt like they were right next to us, which they practically were! They had a very nice park, lots of monthly guests, lovely hot tub and pool. The women's bathroom had showers with no bench or even dressing area, just the shower pad. I'd gladly pay more for peace and quiet. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is easy on and off of Rt. 58. They have a "newer" section that has concrete pads. There is a train track very close, but you "tune" them out. The rate is based on our second time here. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here a month, and it seemed like a nice park with easy access to everything. Only downside was the trains, but after awhile we just blocked them out. Rate is based on 30 days. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We intended to stay for 7 nights. By the second night gang members were camped near our location and we heard two large caliber gun shots at 7:00pm. The trains were constant and many of them blasted their horns even in the middle of the night. The dog run was the worst I have ever seen not to mention the long walk to get to it. The landscaping is located in two small areas away from the actual campsites. It may be nicer for the single-day campsite except that the gunshots sounded like they came from that area. I also noticed a lot of graffiti outside of the campsite along with a sign on the outside fence of this campsite that read, "subject to flooding." I recommend that my worst enemy and all others should not camp at this site. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed one night in the new overnight area. The site was level and long enough to pull through and leave our tow vehicle attached. Check-in was fast and easy; bathrooms were clean. Wi-fi was good. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We agree with other reviews about the new area with concrete pads and ease of hookup. The area is well lit at night, so we felt very safe. I enjoy hearing trains, so that was a plus for me. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This seemingly is an older park with lots of old units and what appears to be permanent residents. What I particularly liked was the new 20 site area set aside for over-nighters. It has truly been designed for easy hook-up with a pole that contains all outlets. Hooking the sewer hose and water hose is all that makes one bend down. Pads are of concrete and the islands in between sites are of gravel. Interior roads paved. Good Wi-Fi and lots of TV stations. Price was right for sure. Next to train tracks so there is train noise, as there is traffic noise from major streets. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Decent park: convenient and clean, but noisy (freight trains and Edison Highway) and no grass. Staff seemed friendly and helpful. Overnighter area is all long pull-throughs, with 50 amps, cement pads and picnic tables on patio blocks. Long-term area is a mix of back-ins and pull-throughs, with gravel and very small privacy fences. Free Wi-Fi requires registering with a coupon code from the office, but works okay. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I would have rated this park 10/10 if not for the trains that run right next door. As far as trains go, they are not bad, very seldom do they blow their horns. But trains are trains and that does mean noise. The park is great. Nice long drive-through cement pads with lots of room between sites. Good Wi-fi and cable TV. I got a 20% discount with the Camp California guide. A very nice park. It's just too bad about the trains which may discourage me from returning. If they don't bother you, I recommend this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very convenient for us when we were traveling from North to South, plus there is easy freeway access. Clean park with a nice pool. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful campground and easy to get to. They have a great salt-water pool and the management is very friendly and helpful. It looks like many people spend the winter here and I can see why with the warm winter temperatures. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park is located close to a very busy railroad track, so there is always plenty of noise, 24 hours a day. There is no landscaping to speak of, no shaded sites. The park is rather dreary to look at. But I guess at these prices, it's hard to complain about that. The pool and hot tub area is nice and well taken care of. The staff was not helpful or service-oriented at all. I intended to stay a couple of months, but left after 2 weeks. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
There was a very friendly, helpful staff. It is easy access to sites which are level. It is close to the railway tracks, but we did not find this a problem. One of our reasons for being here was to view the Tehachapi Loop on the railway. The laundry was very clean and prices reasonable. Washrooms and showers were very clean. Swimming pool and hot tub were open and heated even though it is November. We have stayed here previously, and it appears that some of the long term residents have moved or cleaned up their sites. There was fast Wi-Fi, instant phone service at site, and good cable service all included in price. Citrus trees as well as palm trees are around the park. We will return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was not a favorite stop of ours. There is nothing wrong with the park, but there is nothing special about it either. The best part was a trip to the hot tub in the evening, and being the only people there in the pool area. That was relaxing. We just always hope for each night to be a memorable experience and this park brought nothing to create a special memory. We would look for a different place next time through Bakersfield. The staff was friendly and we appreciated that. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here three nights while we visited Sequoia National Forest and shopped Antique stores. The Park has a great dog run and they keep it nice. The railroad does run beside the Park but we didn't notice the noise all that much. We didn't have a reservation but had no problems. Staff was pleasant. Park has an exceptional map of the City that is wonderful to get to stores and streets. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had originally planned on staying in Barstow, review of that fiasco reflected in campground review, and were desperate to find an RV Park for the night. It was about 7pm when we called to check availability. We didn't know it at the time, but we spoke with the owner who was more than happy to accommodate us. Sites are easy to get in and out of. Clean park and well maintained. We only stayed overnight and wouldn't recommend park for an extended stay as it backs up to major railroad tracks with constant use. There are many long-term residents in the park; some keep their sites very nice, others don't. The park was very quiet at night, despite the trains going by on a regular 30 minute interval. Met the owner next morning at check-out; very nice and friendly. We got a better look at the overall appearance of the park and it wasn't bad. If we had to stay overnight there again we would. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I didn't think this park was as bad as many of the previous reviews have indicated. I notice most of those reviews are from well in the past, perhaps the park has been cleaned up alot since then as it looked OK to me. There are alot of permanent residents, but we didn't have any trouble or get any bad looks. We stayed only for one night when passing through. There is a huge area to park by the office when checking in. The site was good sized and separated by a small fence. Didn't use cable, did use Wifi and it was good. I would stay here again, but I also would explore other parks in Bakersfield as there surely has to be something better. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We arrived after the office was closed with no reservation but the campground had easy instructions to get a space. The office person the next morning was very nice. The campground was nice and clean. The trains were loud but I enjoyed them. If you are sensitive to noise this wouldn't be the campground for you. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I arrived late in the evening to this park, stayed just long enough to get some sleep. That would be if I had not been put next to the managers trailer and the occupants hadn't turned their car headlights on and off several times shining directly into my trailer. The train noise was very loud, sounding like harleys riding through the park. Very unfriendly place, the residents gave me odd looks. The dog walk area was okay but signs everywhere else in the park telling you to keep pets off grass which I thought was ironic considering there were stray cats everywhere. I would not stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We spent 2 nights at this park, and feel that it is a very nice park for the price. The site was clean, the pool was heated, and the hot tub was great. Very friendly staff. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Wish I had read the reviews before staying here, would have tried another place. The ad in Trailer Life and Woodalls makes the park sound appealing but the park is not what is advertised. Very tight spaces separated by small wood fence. Yes, you can hear the train all night. The only positive about the park is the Wi-Fi for a small charge. We will try another park when in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
What a dive. Sites are small & difficult to manuever into. There was a dog running loose and messing in my yard. The dog run was of average size but clearly no one understood the "pick up after your own dog" theory. There were several seasonals and many were pretty trashy. I wouldn't stay here again despite the discount coupons. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It's nice to see the owners of this park going to the trouble of rating their own park, but, it won't work. Basically stated!! -- The same as all the other ratings. clean this dump up. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I had previously stayed here and found the long-term tenants and the train to be only a distraction. However, on this visit, we were very disappointed to find that it was 90% long-term tenants with trashy sites, including multiple broken down vehicles. It looks like a ghetto! Thank goodness I have strong locks on my motorhome doors and didn't need to go outside. Very disappointing!!! We will NOT be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.

This park had a bad environment, created in part by the junky, surly long term renters, and the lack of interest by the management. There were kids playing in the hot tub for hours (the same kids), and it appeared as if the showers were being used by more than the rv park tenants. We stayed two nights so we could play golf one day. It wasn't worth it. During one of the nights we were there, someone spray painted the back of our tow truck. Avoid this place. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was by far one of the worst parks we have stayed at. The train track is located right by the RV park, and this train comes by quite often during the evening. The park by the way is on concrete, or asphalt, no grass or trees at this park, at least none that we saw. We take our chances on parks and this one wasnt a good one. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
[ 2 / 10 ]
First appearance looked okay for a one night stop. That was until the first train came through! Then it seemed like it was every 15 minutes for awhile, but they ran all night. The tracks are so close you could throw a rock and probably hit them! We couldn't wait to leave in the morning. I was unable to sleep most of the night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Trains, all day and all night. Staff was not very friendly. This park must cater to the more permanent visitor as many site looked to be occupied by very long term residents. No grass, no patio pads, and sites are extremely close together. Some days there are a few chairs around the small pool, some days there are not. Would not recommend this park, there has got to be something better in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 1 / 10 ]
This was an unbeliveable park, It sounded so great, It was the most horrible park I have
ever seen, junked cars wrecked carnival rides in the area, old wrecked motorhomes that people lived in. It is not like the web site shows at all. If it wouldn't of been very late at night we would have left. No palm tree lined streets, not even streets, just worn out path. Avoid this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 4 / 10 ]
Many TRAINS very noisy, lots of permanant occupants We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park with level grassy sites with a concrete pad outside your door. It has wide streets for easy maneuvering. Good satellite access. Personnel were very helpful & friendly at check-in. It sits along the Kern River, which is currently dry, but it makes for a nice quiet view. We did not use any of their facilities but the park is clean and well kept. Easy access from Hwy 99. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A nice place to stay. We highly recommend this park, spacious, clean and reasonably quiet. Not so much a pet friendly park, but not bad. The river is nonexistent in the current environment. We camped here in a Motorhome.
You have to traverse through a construction/commercial area to get there but once you turn the corner, you say to yourself, "Nice". Manicured lawns, curbed sites, utility stations for hookups, plenty of CATV channels, newer out-buildings. I couldn't hear much highway noise. Be aware - a $2 dink per dog and a max of two. I would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I'd have given this park a 10 except for the noise from nearby Hwy. 99. The park is spotless, the bathrooms clean and modern. Pads are wide and easy to maneuver into. Silly me, I was expecting to see water in the Kern River (we had a "river view site"). Dry as a bone. I would probably stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
There are two other very nice parks in the area that we frequent, depending upon whether we want the convenience of the city, or a peaceful, country setting. This time, what we needed was a place for a single night's stay, so quick that neither jacks nor slides were going to be deployed. A steak house we enjoy is a long walk/very short drive away. And Costco gas is right across the street. So we decided to try River Run. The pull-throughs are side by sides - a deal killer for me. The back-ins were spaced much further apart and much prettier. Plenty of room for a 37 footer and CR-V. Like the others we use in the area, the pad is dirt, but appeared to be level. Unlike the others, these sites offer a very long concrete patio, making it usable for all types of RV's. The trees in our area offered no satellite interference. Noise from 99 was constant, but actually less disruptive than the road adjacent to our local alternative. We will definitely return for a much longer stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a well maintained and clean campground, with friendly staff at check in. Roads are wide and paved. Pull through pads are gravel, with side by side hookups, big rig access was good. Road noise was minimal, some space around the RV so we could park the towed, a few shade trees and grass between each site, but no picnic table. Bathrooms and laundry were clean and well equipped. Pet friendly with pick up bags. WiFi and cell were good. Lots of food stores and restaurants close by. We would stay here again, it was easy in and out, and although this is not a destination resort, it is fine for a one night stopover, but no more than that. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful park in the center of Bakersfield. Well managed, clean and exceptionally helpful staff. Park is modern with excellent space access for any size rig. An extensive bicycling trail is just across the dry Kern riverbed. Costco is just across the street. Despite the proximity of Hwy 58 and 99 the noise level at night was pretty good. We really enjoyed our stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Do NOT be afraid when entering the park area. It is very industrial, but once there, very well done. Very lean, great staff, pull thru's are back to back, my first time so a learning process. Everything you need is very close. No real road noise. Would have been nice for a table at the site. Wi-Fi and cable were very good. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We camped here as part of an FMCA rally. Very good and friendly staff. Concrete pads and grass. Large clubhouse and a great kitchen. Close to Highway 99 but not much road noise. Lots of good shopping near. A great place to stay while exploring what Bakersfield has to offer. Will return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were traveling to Northern California and needed just an overnight. We were pleasantly surprised by this well kept park. The sites were level and well maintained. The front desk personnel were friendly and helpful. We will use this park again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice, extremely well maintained RV park with friendly and helpful staff. Easy access off highway. The entrance and pull up we're easy to navigate. Check in was smooth and efficient. The grounds are beautifully groomed, the roads are wide and the spaces are large. No picnic tables. The restrooms are immaculate and modern. Plenty of grassy areas between spaces and other grassy areas to walk pets. The RV park is on the bank of a river, but it is dry and appears to have been that way for a long time. A little highway noise. Would definitely come back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park was clean and has shade trees. The sites were large and very easy to pull in and out of. The staff was very friendly and helpful. WiFi worked very well. We stayed for one night and like the park so much we stayed again on our return trip home. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I love this place! (The rate reflects a one week rate plus $10 for our dog.) We have traveled from South Carolina to Ca;California, and I think this is my favorite place not counting the Corp of Engineer parks. The spaces are large with grass and a cement patio. The pads are gravel and quite level. Only thing missing is a picnic table. I don't know why there are none, and I do miss that. The office is beautiful as is the pool area which is sheltered from the wind and very clean. There is a roar of noise from the freeway, but it did not bother us. The pull-through spaces are a little skinny and every other rig faces each other which would be nice for people traveling with friends. I prefer the back-in sites. Ask for a space facing the river. Even though it is usually dry, the view is nicer than the other side. Be aware that when you are trying to find your way in, it is very industrial - don't worry, you are almost there! I haven't used the showers but I did peak in and they looked wonderful! I will certainly come back if we are ever in this area again! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is the second time we have stayed here. The rate reflects weekly rate of $195. Park is beautifully landscaped, sparkling clean. Pool and hot tub are nice, spaces are level with concrete patios, grassy area between sites. Plenty of room for 40' RV and truck. Laundry is spotless and only $1.25 for wash/ dry. Utilities good, cable good, Wi-Fi good most of the time. Office staff friendly and helpful. Small store has most essentials and big bags of ice for only $1! Best thing about this park is the super wide roads, making back-ins easy. Good location a few blocks from 99. Even though it says "river access", it's actually a dry river bed. Only suggestion to make this a 10 would be to add picnic tables and fire pits. Will definitely be back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We've stayed here twice and highly recommend it. This time we stayed three nights as we were here for an art show. The best sites are the ones on the south side of the park along the riverbed. Lots of space between the sites with grass & a nice large concrete patio slab. Roads are paved. $2 extra charge per night for animals. Highway noise is loud, especially on weekend nights but didn't keep us awake. Centrally located in town and just off Hwy 99. Costco is around the corner & there are plenty of restaurants. Wi-Fi was exceptionally fast. Lots of TV channels on cable. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Pros: Great strong free WiFi, even at a distance from the antenna. A lot of cable channels including many in HD. Large modern facility buildings. Restrooms super clean and modern. Beautiful pool and workout room. Luscious weed free grass everywhere. Easy walk to adjacent restaurants and major Hotels. Reasonable price, good value. Cons: No picnic tables, a little freeway noise in the front area of the park no problem in the back. Office closes at 5PM, but sites are still available, best make a reservation before 5pm. Would definitely stay here again. This was our 2nd stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park, with easy access, level sites it has a pool and work out room. There is noise from trains and freeway, but not bad. Would stay here again. This is an 8++++. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We arrived at this park towards the end of July and stayed for the month of August. Our site had no shade, which was the case for most of the park. The sites along the dry river bed had some shade but not enough to mention. Also, these "river" sites are an additional $100. There was a clubhouse with a small gym and a tv viewing area. Our electric bill for the month of August came out to be over $300 and when we asked for an explanation we were given a breakdown which didn't make much sense. There were different tiers which was not explained to us when registering. Needless to say, we moved to another campground for the rest of our stay in Bakersfield that offered better rates, better amenities, electricity credit, and shade! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very helpful and friendly staff. I had come here last minute after another park had booked me into a space I could not possibly fit into, and down the row from a guy who was literally tuning his fully unmufflered Supercharged Ski Boat (yes the kind with the 3 foot pipes coming off the header), at 9 p:30 PM no less. River Run was an oasis. Very VERY clean, well run, and the staff were more than helpful, considering I showed up without a reservation and had a rather large 5er to park and expand. Good Park and good neighbors, but it is not really walking distance to much to eat. Bike yes, car yes, walking is kind of limited. Nice path along the river, and amazingly clean bathrooms. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a good location, not too far from the freeway, but far enough not to hear it much. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here as we needed to access some of the stores in the vicinity. We usually stay at Orange Grove. We like the park except for the TRAIN noises but you will get that just about everywhere in Bakersfield. Otherwise - nice park, very clean. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is the second time we have stayed here. The park is clean and the staff friendly. As with the last time, we found the sites to be a bit unlevel, although not so much that we leveled for the one night we stayed. It is near the road and the railroad so was a bit noisy, but they cannot help that! Good for an overnight on the way to the Southern California deserts. We will stay again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A very pretty campground next to a small river. Well cared for. Our only complaint is that it is next to Hwy 99, which has a huge amount of traffic, and a railroad also runs close by. This was very noisy at night. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a very clean, neat park. Concrete pads next to the compressed gravel parking spots, and nice green lawns between sites. The park is about 5 years old, and the trees are still fairly small. It is close to a freeway, so some sites are exposed to a bit more noise. Access was easy, and we were able to back in to our space with no trouble. The showers were "A" quality -- roomy, plenty of hot water, clean, and in good condition. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed at River Run in our new 5th Wheel, and thoroughly enjoyed it there! The pool is very nice and the staff is friendly. Laundry room is clean and the machines are in great working order. It was busy, but the sites are large, some with an extra pad for a 2nd vehicle, which we used. The clubhouse is a perfect place to visit, with ample seating and an enormous TV and plush leather couches. Our kids loved the snacks in the store, too. We plan to return very soon! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very clean, well managed park. Excellent clean showers and laundry facilities. Friendly, helpful staff. Small pool and hot tub. Nothing for families to do which suited us as we do not like children running about and being a nuisance (sorry parents!) Lot of nearby freeway noise that bothered my parents sleep but not mine and I am a very light sleeper normally. We will definitely use this park again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice clean park with nice size lots for larger coaches. Each lot has a grass area. Pet friendly with nice trail on the adjacent river. We have stayed several times as a stop over park. Agree with prior review on some freeway noise. Would rate 10 except for freeway noise. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice newer park, very friendly and quiet (some noise from freeway but not bad) will be great when trees mature more. Clean large sites with plenty of room for our 4 slides. There is grass at every site. Bike/walking path along adjoining river. (Rate includes 2 pets and Good Sam discount.) We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park, big spaces a little on the short side for some of the pull-throughs. A two dollar a day per dog charge and close to the highway (99) but below it and hardly noticeable. Good Wi-Fi and utilities Very friendly staff . Would stay here again (we were here for two weeks). We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here the first night of a 2 month trip. It was a "stopover" and was good for that reason. The park was clean and easy to find, however we ended up in a space that was not level. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here one night on our way home from a three week vacation. This is a family run park and they are extremely welcoming. They gave us our choice of sites. The bathrooms and laundry room were clean and new. Cable TV and WiFi were excellent. There are long term renters but they were all newer units and neat and clean. The park was quiet at night except for some nearby freeway noise. This park is right on the river but handy on and off highway 99. We would stay again when we pass through Bakersfield. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A very nice park. New facilities, good layout, nice clubhouse and store, friendly people. And clean restrooms and laundry! Nice long pullthroughs and modern power pedestals. There are permanent residents, mostly in the back, and the pullthroughs are in front. This is also the only negative, they are close to CA-99 with incessant traffic noise. But we'll stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This RV park is nearly perfection! Well located in town although we hear a bit of traffic around, everything seems brand new, the hosts are nice, the restrooms and showers are sparkling clean, the laundry fees are low with modern equipment. There is narrow strip of lawn between sites and nice trees that will eventually grow to give shade. I give 9/10 because I'm hard to please! I would have appreciated a few shrubs between sites to get more privacy. Anyway, I would certainly go back there on my next visit to Bakersfield. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Weekly rate noted. This is a fairly new park. Friendly, accommodating staff and the park is well maintained. Easy getting around on paved roads with gravel and level sites. Wi-Fi service was OK, good voltage and almost too low water pressure. All amenities and areas were clean including the pool and hot tub. Easy getting to and from Hwy. 99. We will add this park to our return list. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stay here quite often to visit our kids in Bakersfield. My biggest problem is the condition of the showers and restroom. They do not have locks and are open to anyone. There may be weeks at a time that many are out of service and not clean. Many days the transients in the area use the showers at night and I have found numerous foul traces of their use. I have suggested they need to be locked, but never have. Otherwise, office people are courteous. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice, very quiet park. Clean and warm showers and restrooms. Free Wi-Fi. Public computer available in very comfortable lounge. Sites are level although gravel. Adjoining patios are concrete. Have been here 6 times and enjoy our stay each time. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We have stayed here three times. It is the ONLY place we'll stay when driving through Bakersfield on our way to/from Southern CA. The staff are always friendly and helpful. The bathrooms are beautifully tiled and always clean. The hot tub is divine when it's freezing. The only slight concern I had this last stay is there seem to be a few semi-permanent trailers that have moved in that are quite "seedy" looking. One had a dog tied up outside the very shabby looking trailer when we checked in at 5pm and that same dog was laying out in the freezing weather the next morning, tied to the trailer. Very sad. This is a very nice park and I hope the economy won't force them to continue to allow some run down trailers to begin living there. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Price was for pull-through, with Good Sam discount. Newer park, with large back-in and pull-through sites. Wide, paved roads with hard gravel sites, each with a cement pad next to it. Grass between the sites. The park was immaculate and perfectly maintained. Good 50 amp power. Restroom/showers were clean and in new condition. There was road noise from Highway 99. I would stay there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed three nights. A very pleasant and clean park. Generally quiet though outside you can hear the distant Hwy 99 freeway. Also train noise quite a ways off. Clean restrooms and common areas. Nice walk along river outside of park. Road width allowed for easy maneuvering to pull-through and back-in sites. You park your rig on gravel and have a concrete pad to enjoy the outside. Grass between back-in sites and between pull-through site pairs. Utilities were accessible through pedestal well located along side the RV. Air quality in Bakersfield was poor to awful which limited our usual week long stay, not a fault of the park. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Only reason this isn't a 10 is gravel sites, but they are very good gravel sites. This is a resort like park at very reasonable rates. Very friendly management. I used a pull through as I arrived in pouring down rain and didn't want to unhook in the rain, the back in sites are less. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here twice in October and enjoyed the park very much. The ladies in the office were very nice and helpful - we were actually greeted with a friendly "Hello and Welcome". The park is spotless as are the restrooms and showers. The sites are flat and easy in and out. It's obviously a new park since the trees are still small. Did not use the Wi-Fi as we have a Verizon wireless which gave us great reception. We would definitely stay again when we travel through. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park looks bigger on its website. However, it was just fine. I had a pull though site and it was a cinch to get into and out. The Wifi worked well and was fast. The bathrooms were clean, satellite signal locked on right away, what's not to like? We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice, very clean park. Store in office with essentials - even wine. Staff friendly and helpful. Both back in and pull through spaces. Cable was very good. Wi-Fi was pretty good. It kicked me off a couple of times but reconnected. Shower/bathroom area clean and large and roomy. We stayed 2 nights because I needed a little work done on my motorhome. I used Mike's Mobile RV Care. He was very quick, efficient and fair. My sister coughed constantly because the almonds and cotton were being sprayed with something in the area. There are trains, but it was very faint. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great park! The staff truly understands customer service. They're always friendly and accommodating. They have a small pool and spa, which is nice. It's fairly new, so the trees are small and don't give much shade. There is a wide range of site sizes and locations to meet individual needs or requests. The park is well maintained and clean. We stay here a couple months in both the spring and the fall as we transition between the desert and the coast. Good cable TV and free Wi-Fi. Only one small problem, some of the river sites have trees blocking the satellite TV signal. Otherwise, all is good. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We decided on this park from previous reviews. We were on the last leg of our 3+ month road trip. We were in Napa Wednesday evening, so it was a perfect distance away.. This park was only a few blocks off our route home to Las Vegas. This is a great park. We were only here overnight, so didn’t use all the facilities. There was even three nearby geocaches. The park is also less than a half mile from Benji’s, our favorite Basque Restaurant in Bakersfield. Staff was friendly and efficient, check in was very quick.. Both the park entrance and office gave a good first impression. The sites are spacious and the paved roads wide enough for easy maneuvering. We especially like the layout of the spaces for people traveling together. We will stay again when passing through Bakersfield. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is a jewel in the rough. Coming into it through the industrial area we wondered what we were getting into. The road ended and there is this pretty, pristine, well laid out campground. We are just passing through but would love to stay a day or so longer if possible. It has very good Wi-Fi and many channels on their cable. With Good Sam we paid $33.30 for the night. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great RV park. Great freeway access. Costco very close for gas. River access through security gates. Extremely clean, amazing granite in bathrooms, pool, jacuzzi, common area with TV and computer. Close to restaurants. Do not be put off by the access roads. Would definitely stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed here with our seven year old grandson. What a find in Bakersfield! Wouldn't stay anywhere else within a 100 miles of this place. The pool was refreshing, the hot tub very relaxing, there's a big screen TV in a nicely furnished entertainment room. The showers were super clean and the front desk very friendly. The store was nicely stocked too. Would definitely recommend this as the ONLY place to stay in Bakersfield. Very quiet too. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Easy on and off the highway; directions easy to follow. While close to the road, did not hear any road noise or trains while in the coach. Full concrete pads; long pull-throughs. Good utilities and services. Lovely landscaping and grass areas. Beautiful pool area. Would definitely stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park was better than expected for a "city" park. It was conveniently located near the highway and restaurants. Unfortunately, the girl in the office wasn't very knowledgeable about nearby grocery stores for provisioning (but she did have good restaurant suggestions). Unfortunately the pool and hot tub were not operational. The park was extremely neat and clean, and the grounds well maintained. The sites are level concrete and have nice grassy areas separating them. All-in-all, a good park for passing through the city. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park has everything if you have dogs who love to romp. We have two large dogs who love to hike. This park has a long path, a river for the dogs to swim in, and a sandy shore for them to play on. Our RV site was a pull through. It was level and had a bit of grass for the dogs to lay on. The restrooms were clean and the showers were roomy. We loved this park. The WiFi worked great too. If you have kids, there is a park across the river to take them too. This is our second visit and we always make a point to stay here when we are passing through! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park, easy access: did not even have to unhook the tow car. Great for a overnight if you are heading in or out of the L.A. basin. A little loud from either the freeway noise or the train that comes close to the park. We were closer to the train noise and it was okay. Would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Price reflects Good Sam Discount. This park is very clean and like new. Pool/Clubhouse is very nice. CG is a good location within Bakersfield and had no problem accommodating my 76' rig. All roads are paved and Wi-Fi was very strong from my site. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
First of all: there is no water near this place. Although, if the county let the water flow this direction, there could be a wonderful river near the park. The park had great hook ups, and was nice and clean. It did seem that there were a lot of permanent residents. Has paved spaces with grass between each space. The dog walk area was along the river edge and had too many stickers for our small dogs, but the office lady did tell us we could walk the dogs anywhere as long as they were on a leash. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A nice new RV park. Prices range from $32 to $39 depending on back-in or pull-through and site length. Over-nighters, which we were, get the sites closest to the Freeway, so there was road noise. Sites are level, gravel, with a concrete pad for your chairs. Showers and restrooms were clean. 70-channel Cable TV and Wi-Fi worked good. Swimming pool and hot tub. Locked gate access to the Kern River for a nice walk, get combo code from office. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Excellent, clean park. Family owned and it shows. They are very friendly and willing to accommodate. Nice dog walk area along the dry river. Easy park to use. Definitely a first choice for the area. Convenient to all the highways. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice and clean newer park along the Kern River. There are several long-termers, but most of their sites are uncluttered. Some of the restroom/shower facilities needed repair, but were very clean. Since it's new, the trees haven't grown enough to provide shade. Not sure we would want to be here in the summer. The only problem was the long-termers speeding through the park in their pick-ups. We will stay here as a full-timer in the future. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a good campground. The river is dry and looks to be like it has been that way for awhile. The sites was large enough and the staff seemed to be friendly enough. The bathrooms was in good shape and very clean. It was very quite there. A good place to stay if you are traveling because there are alot of places to eat and shop.
We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice for an overnight stay: convenient to CA 58 (we're always leaving the state over Tehachapi) but also not much traffic noise. Not scenic surroundings (industrial), but very tidy, new park with decent space between sites, which is rare in a new commercial park. Bathroom facilities outstanding. We preferred this park to the Orange Grove park in Bakersfield for our over nighting needs. (Extra $2 per night charge for a dog; not great facilities for dogs, though.) We camped here in a Motorhome.
A nice new park and facilities. Not sure I would call it a destination RV park but it was great facility for our overnight stay. It's close to the freeway but not too noisy. Good facilities for dogs as well, great walking trail outside the park but charged an extra $2 for our dog. Had some problems with the Wi-Fi: intermittent connections. We would stay here again if we were passing through. We camped here in a Motorhome.
New RV park so there's no shade from trees yet - gives it a little bit of a parking lot feeling. Site we were assigned to was too small for our 5th wheel. Reserved a pull through but it was so close to the neighbor we wouldn't have been able to put out our 3 slides. It wasn't very full so the girl in the office let us choose any other site we wanted. Took a back in, "river front" and had plenty of room with it. The river isn't really a river - it's a dry wash. Used the pool - very nice and the club house is very nice too! Not sure I'd recommend this as a "destination" park but it was very clean and nice for an overnight stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We rank parks on three main issues. 1-the type of walking areas for dogs, 2-the size of the sites, and 3-cleanliness of the bathrooms. This park was a pleasant surprise. We also thought it was expensive for what you got, but it was clean and had a GREAT place to walk our dogs. We rarely feel comfortable walking them off leash, but we did here. The main walking trail is right off the park and it's a nice 3-4 mile walk. There is a dried up river bed too. We let our wilder dog run her butt off in it. The bathrooms were very clean. The sites were terribly small. We had to move from our original site because the folks next to us had their slide open and ours wouldn't open next to them. If they reduced the cost and didn't place folks so close to each other, I would have ranked this a 10. It's a great overnight spot. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It gripes me to pay this much money for a night, now I will look at it two ways. When I had kids, and we got limited time during the year, not a problem. But now that I'm on a fixed income and traveling eight months out of the year i average about 20 a night. Back to the campground, its nice, clean and new, but in this area it will be hard to sustain the price for overnighters without some kind of discount PA GS or something or else it will fall into the perms. and all the junk that goes with it. My main reason for stopping here was two working partners that I had worked with were here on a monthly rate, so we stopped here for a mini reunion. Other than that I would have stayed at the Walmart and moved on, at this price I won't be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have stayed at this park for overnight stays on 4 different occasions. It is a really great RV park. Very clean facilities, nice pool and hot tub. The store is the best we have seen. The only thing missing is a playground for the kids. We highly reccommend this park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
For an urban park, this place is decent. It is neat and well-maintained with good spacing between sites. There were lots of extended stay folks, but no old rigs surrounded by junk and no noisy neighbors. The staff was friendly and helpful. If you want the convenience of being in downtown Bakersfield, this is the place to be. We'll stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice spot for an overnight. Great location off of Hwy. 99 and not too far off I-5. Clean park with good cable and Wi-Fi and a friendly staff. Most pull-throughs are very close to each other, which makes things pretty tight. There's quite a bit of highway noise and an occasional train, which could be a problem for light sleepers. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We did an over-night on our way south. Very nice park. Could be noisy during the week (our stay was Saturday) as it is in an industrial area with a lot of construction going on. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a new RV Park. It is a 10. The cable TV service has so many channels that I forgot about our Dish TV sat. stuff and promptly hooked in the cable. If there were any downsides at all, it would be the nest of sugar ants just outside our door. We suffered through it OK--LOL--we will stay here again (and have now 3 times) as it is great. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a fairly new campground. All the sites are large with paved pads with grass at each site. The restrooms were tiled and clean. It appears that this may be a park with some permanent sites as the rules for pets indicate you must have prior approval to have a house pet. They do not have the pool finished and the store was not stocked yet. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We only camped here overnight. It was also fairly easy access from I-99 We camped here in a Motorhome.
Typically when we are staying a single night in Bakersfield, as we were this trip, we use a different park whose pull-thru sites are longer. Note that BRVR has big sites, but the location of the power/water pedestal is a compromise for motor homes & towables. Add to it our full body slide. Typically we can barely fit our toad in our site. But my wife longed for a sit down dinner at the on-site Crest restaurant, so I agreed, if we could finagle a bigger site than we normally are assigned. And what a site we got! Seems some of the back-ins have been modified so they can be used as super long pull-thru's. A great site & a great meal - cordon bleu! And don't forget. Easiest access to this park is not from the Panama off ramp. Use the next one north so you turn right into the park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice resort park. Great bar and grill on premises. The only thing that kept me from giving a 10 was the site was small-tight gravel and I had to shim tires to level. Didn't use cable as we were only staying overnight and there were a zillion channels on our roof antenna. Well worth the $40. I will stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
What every one else said. The only thing is their cable TV isn't all that good. I found that if you have a HDTV you can get a lot of channels off the air and a lot better quality. I didn't have to raise my antenna We camped here in a Motorhome.
Amazing stay! My one and only complaint is that it's very close to the train tracks. Other than that, this place is LOVELY! It's really too bad that Bakersfield isn't a vacation destination or we'd stay here often. The girl in the office was perky and pleasant and gave my boys fresh cookies while she was checking us in. They provided us with wristbands for the pool and put put golf course. When we were checked in the campground host escorted us to our spot and guided my hubby into the space. We checked in late and they gave us the menu to the Grill onsite and said that they would deliver to our site. We were just ready for bed. In the morning we met a local friend for breakfast at the grill and it was delicious. And again, super friendly staff. Kudos to Bakersfield RV Resort! They're doing it right! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very very nice! Nice concrete patios. Spacious sites. Pull thrus. Rate is Good Sam. Wish we could've stayed more than one night. Nice restaurant on site that will even deliver to your RV. We camped here in a Motorhome.
As many others, I am rating this a 10. Very well designed spaces with plenty of room, grass, good utilities. Very nice clubhouse with small store, good restaurant, pool, hot tub, and so on. Free DVDs for guests. We ate dinner at restaurant and it was good. Not fantastic, but very good. On the level of one of the chains like Claim Jumper or Outback. We had a very friendly server. Front desk person friendly. I think they have a massage person here too. Fenced in small dog park. Poop bags available in at least one location in park. Any dings? Not really. This park is a couple blocks off the freeway. There is still background freeway noise, but not loud. This is a city RV Park so you have ambulance and police noise. Large Camping World right down the street. This is by far!! the best park I have stayed at in this area. Worth going out of your way to stay here. We would have been happy to stay here longer. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Well-organized and clean RV park (escort service; all amenities, etc.). There was a car show the day we arrived, so it was very busy. Level pull-through site; I rated it a "9" because the sites are very close to each other. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
One of the few parks I give a 10 to. Obviously well designed and laid out, easy entry and access to sites. Sites are fine gravel and level, and all the amenities are there and work. The office is a nice place, and the Bar and Grill nice enough to attract customers from outside the park. All the park personnel we met were friendly and helpful. We would stay here again if ever in this area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an outstanding park/resort. Facilities are first class including buildings, restrooms/laundry, pool/spa, reception area and sites. The staff are very friendly and helpful (we enjoyed the complimentary homemade cookies at check-in). Interior roads are paved, wide, and smooth. Led to a large, level gravel pull-through with excellent utilities and concrete patio. Landscaping throughout the park is meticulously maintained. Long-stay guests are on the outer ring and are maintained to a high standard. A nice added feature is the on-site bar and grill with happy hour and a nice menu with reasonable prices. I would definitely recommend this resort. You get a lot for your money here. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
One of the nicest parks we have ever stayed. Pros: The WiFi is out of this world, works great; antennas throughout the park. Buildings and facilities are first class. Staff friendly and helpful. Showers are plentiful, private, modern and clean. Restaurant and cocktail lounge, serves breakfast lunch and dinner with delivery service to your RV. Pool and hot tub available. Good Sam Discount. Cons: Cable TV channels are plentiful, but none in High Definition, so all are digitally clear but low definition and fuzzy. Many campsites do not have picnic tables, so if this is important to you ask for one when registering. We stayed here again when returning thru Bakersfield a few days later. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It has been a few years since we were here. It's still in top shape. Staff does a very good job here. From check-in, to the grounds, to the food, it's all good. Close to the highways- And I think they have upgraded the Wi-Fi. It FLYS! We will stop again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great park. We stayed one night on our way going north. Everything seems new and the grounds were well kept. Out site had fine sand/gravel and it got into our coach and truck. That was the only small problem. It is a very well run park and the people in the office were very nice. Our space had lots of room for our slides and the neighbors were far enough away. We ate dinner in the Crest Restaurant on the property. The food was particularly good and we paid less than I thought. And we got 10% off with the coupon that the office gave us. There are a few trains blowing their horns close to the park but not many and it didn't bother us too much. We would stay here again for sure. It is about a one minute drive from Camping World. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a beautiful park. We have stayed in other parks in the area and will return to this one. I can't find any negatives to say about our stay here. The sites are large and level with grass between. The park is very close to shopping and fuel but was very quiet at night. This is the park to stay in when in Bakersfield. We camped here in a Motorhome.
What a great park! Big wide sites, full hookups, great WiFi, and cable. The onsite restaurant is great and will deliver meals to your rig. The pool was unheated, but still pretty warm. Paved interior roads, level sites. Right down the street from Camping World. Immaculate landscaping. After two months in the desert, we needed something nice and this was just perfect. Will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Perfect! The grounds are well kept with nice sites and a concrete patio pad. Great facilities for laundry and showers. There is a delicious restaurant in the main building. We were pleased to hear that our dogs were welcome anywhere throughout the park and there are 2 dog runs. While walking our dogs we noticed Wi-Fi towers about every 15 feet or so. That would probably account for the super fast Wi-Fi. Thank you very much! We work on our computers on the road. The gates close at ten PM with a security code to come and go. The area is fine especially with Camping World virtually across the street. We plan to stay here again! We camped here in a Motorhome.
I used this park twice...once going south and returning going north. Very easy off freeways, and cannot hear the freeways at the campground. Everything is clean and level. The dog parks are in weird places, but work! The restaurant is wonderful. Front desk ladies are friendly and knowledgeable, and the cookies were delicious! The only "bad" is that there are no picnic tables. I would return for sure! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have stayed at the campground several times and have always been pleased. As other reviewers have mentioned, it is extremely well maintained, clean, resort like, and the location is perfect coming and going to/from Southern California. It is also very close to a Camping World and supermarkets, should you need any supplies. What no one has mentioned is that the restaurant and bar on the premises serve the very best Bloody Mary's to be had anywhere on the planet. The food is quite good, too. Bakersfield is always a dilemma for us because two of our favorite RV parks are here, this one and Orange Grove. We resolve the dilemma by staying in one heading South and the other returning north. I sure wish the I-5 corridor had other RV parks of this caliber elsewhere along the way. We camped here in a Motorhome.
You pull up to this campground and it looks truly like a RESORT. Palm trees, electronic gate, beautiful "club house" etc. They have a restaurant/bar on site that has great food and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, which is awesome if you're just tired of cooking for one morning or night. They had lots of washers and dryers and the laundry room was nice and clean. Everyone of the staff was friendly. The sites were large and the people were nice. The propane was $3/gallon - cheapest we've found at a campground yet, which was surprising for a "resort". My only complaint is there are only 2 designated "dog runs" and its a long patch of grass that stretches behind all the 5th wheels at the front of the park (probably 20 per dog run). It felt weird that I basically had to walk through someone's pad to get back to the dog run, and then walk my dog that close to everyone's "house". I felt like i was invading privacy but it was the only designated place. I originally posted that there were no enclosed dog runs, because the map, my walking around for 20 minutes, and my asking of 3 different staff members walking around, told me there were none. However, I have been corrected that there are some, and I'm so excited to try to find them next time we stay. If you care about this sort of thing, don't rely on the map - ask the lady who checks you in. She will be very nice and probably know EXACTLY where they are. I was not that on top of things at the time, ha ha! But since they apparently have one, that is bonus points in my book! Will stay here again on our way back for sure! We camped here in a Motorhome.
As long as you want to be in the city, you'll like this park. The park is very well maintained - it always looks ready for a photo shoot. Pool, spa, laundry, and toddler playground are pristine. Sites are very level and amply spaced with grass and a small concrete patio. Each site is raked and swept daily. Food and service at the onsite bar and grill (the Crest) was very good. It's a 5 minute walk to Camping World, and 5 minute drive to Walmart, Target, movie theater and mall. The staff is very helpful. A slight negative is that the CA99 freeway is about 1/2 mile away and the traffic sound is noticeable (but not overly so). There is also a railroad track a quarter mile away with trains passing through two or three nights a week. While we normally stay in small towns, we had to be in Bakersfield for just over three weeks and we're glad we stayed here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We always stay here passing from North CA to South. Large, level, spacious sites (not concrete, but packed sand/decomposed granite). Very good on-site restaurant (discount for campers) with patio dining including TV & fireplace, free cookies at check-in, beautiful pool area, and Camping World right across the street! What more could you ask for??? A better dog area, would be one thing, but at least they added a fenced area that is actually large enough to exercise a large dog, just never figured out how you would get to it if all the site were full since you have to walk thru a campsite to access it. Staff is wonderful, in the office, camp host, in the restaurant. Recommend reservations for weekend arrivals, they tend to fill up. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
What a find! Our new "must stay" when traveling Hwy 99. Good spacing, paved interior roads, sand parking, ample room for slide outs, a restaurant/grill on site (good food, too), long pull thrus - Just a really nice park. Their map/info page is labeled "Guidelines For A Pleasant Stay" instead of "Rules". I think that pretty well sums up the management. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very disappointed in this being called a resort. We have never stayed in a so called RESORT that the pad was sand...We don't go to beaches because we don't like sand. A very nice entrance and gal is office especially nice. Easy in and out. Pool looked great. Restaurant appeared more like a bar. Heard great reports about the restaurant, but I went over to get hamburgers to go. I asked for hamburger well done, but didn't expect burned. Couldn't eat it. BLACK on outside of patty. Others loved the restaurant, so maybe just a fluke. But didn't go back because of that. The music in the bar was very nice though. No really separate clubhouse. Nice big couch for relaxing, but it was in the office/store area. Not inviting to go sit and read and relax. The park on a whole was big and easy. But just too dusty for us and so we will not go back. Just didn't expect sand which is the main reason we will not go back. For a resort this didn't meet our expectations. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The clubhouse area includes a full-service restaurant called The Crest Bar & Grill. They were offering a Father's Day special of steak and scallops that smelled delicious. Check in was great and we were escorted to our site which was all-concrete and spacious enough for all our slide-outs. They honor the Good Sam discount here. The pool area was clean and very nice. It was a warm afternoon so we enjoyed a swim and some down time. The restrooms were spacious and very clean. There were over five shower stalls with plenty of room. There is a putting green also and the park is close to Camping World and Walmart if you need to pick anything up. We only stayed one night as we were on our way to Oakhurst. Full timers do occupy spaces at the perimeter of the park but they didn't bother me. I didn't see any loose pets either. WFfi and cable TV all worked fine. I would definitely stay at this park again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Another nice overnight stay here. We use this resort when traveling 99 between northern and southern California. Nice office staff, and easy check-in. Sites are fairly tight, but they are level and the hookups are in the right place. Everything worked as expected. We didn't use the restaurant or bar this time, but they were good the last couple of times we were there. We'd stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great park to stay. We stay here when going through Bakersfield. The sites are large, flat and clean. Everything is well maintained. Good pool, clean restrooms and showers and laundry. The onsite restaurant is ok but not great. A short walk to Camping World! There are also two small dog runs. The WiFi as in most parks, either doesn't work or works occasionally and is very slow. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have stayed at this park several times since September of 2012. We use it exclusively when we travel south from our northern California location. This is a clean, well laid out park with nice wide pull through spaces. Nicely landscaped with all the amenities befitting a park of this type. The on grounds Crest Bar & Grill restaurant has good food and drink and a friendly staff. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner is served daily. The store has a good selection of most all needed items as well as souvenirs, etc. As mentioned prior, we use this park as our stopping off point on all our southbound trips as it is the best there is in Bakersfield. We can say that because we've checked out the others and none of them can hold a candle to this one. Highly recommended. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is our park of choice in Bakersfield. There are other nice facilities in the general area, but the proximity of businesses - Camping World across the street, Costco for gas nearby, etc., make this locale optimal. The very road that makes access easy to these businesses is pretty busy virtually all night long, but does allow for easy freeway access to the park. Entering the park from the north will allow for an easy right turn. Approaching from the south requires a left turn across this multi lane thoroughfare. As others have noted, there is an excellent restaurant on site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground has it all, nice roomy spots, easy on and off the highway, nice pool and sauna and a pretty good restaurant right on site. We stayed here twice , the second time because we enjoyed our first visit so much and made a point of stopping in again for 10 days on our way back home. I gave it an 8 instead of a 10 for a few reasons. The campground is clean and well kept up but the small gravel at each site is messy. You drag it in your coach no matter how much you try not to. If you have dogs it is even worse. On the second visit we wanted to park in the same area we had when we first stayed there and were told we couldn't because that was short term parking and when I mentioned that we had stayed the last time the same amount of time I was told that must have been a mistake. They did allow us to stay in the area close to the pool and restaurant but e were told if we returned they couldn't allow that again, that put a bad taste in my mouth. Lastly the pool on the second visit was not as clean as it should have been. The staff is very helpful but they seem to be always training new people on the front desk who lacked good customer service skills. All in all, if I had rated this campground after the first stay only, the score would have been higher. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I stayed here over the weekend because Camping World could not finish work done on my RV. I would give them a 10 for the first 3 day stay. I was put close to the bathrooms, pool, restaurant. However, my second stay, even though they were hardly busy: I was put out in the back 40. A long walk to the dog area, the showers, bathrooms, and out away from the office: the WiFi sucked. I would stay here again, but would request being near the office. We camped here in a Motorhome.
In August, in Bakersfield it is amazing HOT! Even at 110F the staff was friendly and helpful, with an easy registration and showing us to our site. Sites are basic, just a spot with hook-ups, but they are very easy to navigate and set up. They are close to the freeway so made a good one night stop for us on the way to LA from camping farther north. Their restaurant is fantastic! Being across the street from Camping World is helpful: seems I'm always looking for a light bulb or some connector. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
You will wonder if you've made the right choice driving through town to get to this park, but once you've arrived and setup, you will be glad you did. An awesome park. Gated park with security and an escort to our site. Paved driveways and spots with grassy area and picnic table - very neat and tidy! Pool was awesome, warm & clean. Very clean bathrooms, and laundry area immaculate. Mini-golf for the kids. Restaurant on-site and delivers to your site but BEWARE.. hours are a little unstable. We arrived and were told we could order for delivery up until 8:45. Called our order in at 8:20 and the restaurant decided to close early for the night. Very aggravating since we had decided not to unhook our tow. Camping World across the street was convenient. Large sites with plenty of room to spread out. Staff in office extremely helpful and friendly. Don't leave without your homemade cookies upon check-in. A top 5 RV park for us on a 20+ park vacation. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Welcoming, clean and a great experience. Situated on a former drive-in movie site, this place was one of the best we have even been to. We stayed 4 nights, and enjoyed the restaurant that is there too. Newspaper delivery every morning, and also the restaurant will deliver to your coach. We will be back again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
During nine years of RVing I have stayed at over 175 campgrounds. I stopped counting at that point. Some are remembered for being awful, more for being excellent, and a few for being outstanding. Bakersfield RV Resort is in the last group. And just to confirm the identity of the campground, it is on Wible Ave. There is another in the area with a similar name. The rate is $39 minus 10% for GS. It is not now nor has it ever been $55. The resort is convenient to the Hwy 99, about six minutes and two turns away. I planned an overnight stay. I was so impressed and so comfortable with everything, I stayed for six days. The sites are long and wide. Each has a concrete patio and a lawn! I'm not kidding. The grass is lush. There is something about sitting on thick green grass that is totally relaxing.. Each lawn has a tree, most have two trees. It's a perfect setting for reading or just kicking back. The park is 5 years old and continuously maintained. The architecture is southwestern in flavor and very pleasant on the eyes. The desk staff is very accommodating and couldn’t be more friendly. The resort location is close to any service you will need. Camping World is about 1/4 mile away. Big malls are within minutes. For those inclined, churches, gyms are close by. I enjoy country music. Those of us of a certain age, will enjoy the Buck Owens museum, The Crystal Palace, about 5 miles north on 99. The resort pool, spa, and gym, are an added plus. The store is well stocked with those basic items you may need right now. The major surprise for me is the restaurant. On-site RV park restaurants are often just basic. The Crest Bar and Grill, is a stand alone restaurant, very popular with the locals. Always a good indicator of quality. Each time I ate there I was pleasantly surprised. The first evening I ordered a Garden Pita and tomato bisque. The latter was the best I have ever enjoyed. The pita was like no other I have ever had. It was a great meal! Not just the snack I had expected. Their chef has a great imagination. You will be given a coupon when checking in for a free brownie sundae when you order a meal. I tried that. As a retired airline pilot, I have eaten in restaurants all over the country and much of the world. In LA, SFO, NY. Atlanta, Seattle, etc., that brownie sundae would be priced at $15+. The price at the Crest, $3.95. It's plenty large enough for two people. And that's the small one. The Resort is also pet friendly. No "Keep the Dogs Off Grass" signs. Bag dispensing/disposal stations are provided through out the resort. Traveling through Bakersfield? Make it a point to stop at this resort. I will always do so. As another full timer told me, "This is a hard park to leave." We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed here here for one night, excellent RV resort! We were 57' overall and did not have to unhook for just the one night. Restaurant on-site, very good, if I lived near here I would go just to eat, had dinner and breakfast! Really a clean, clean, RV resort. We will stop here next time we travel through the area. Camping World a 10 Minute walk across the street and down about a 1/4 mile. Easy to find off of Hwy 99. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice park, quite new, with easy access to the Highways 99 and 58. Nice place to eat with very good food. Camping World right down the street and excellent shopping in the immediate area. There is a railroad nearby but it is a local line, not a main line. Train only comes by twice a day. Some highway noise but you will want to run the AC and that drowns out the noise. (Hot here in the summer) Great pool and other facilities. I always stay here when I come to Bakersfield. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here one night. Very impressed with park staff. A host leads you to your RV site and makes sure you can hook up and that everything works. This park is absolutely spotless - everywhere. There is a restaurant (great food) with a full bar on site that provides delivery service to your RV if needed. Our pull through (#118) was sufficient for 29' RV and Jeep. There is some faint traffic noise if you are a light sleeper. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice level sites, with plenty of room in between. The restaurant here is great. We stayed here for a week, I would definitely come back. Camping World is done the road. The only negative is the Wi-Fi is very bad. We had not signal the whole time we were there. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice park. There is a nice restaurant on the premises and we had a good breakfast there. There was a little train noise and the WI-FI was a little unreliable, but over all the experience was a positive one. We had a $10 off coupon we received in Quartzsite, so the regular price is $39 a night. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here twice on this trip with good experience each time. It appears that they have improved their Wi-Fi coverage as we had no problems this trip where we had in the past. The gate is now closed at 10:00pm with a code to leave and enter. They are putting in better drainage in the park so they are listening to what their customers are saying. We ate in the restaurant several times and the food/service was good. We will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Park is in a nice side of town and newer. It has nice pool, laundry and bathrooms. The downside is the train and highway noise. All night long you hear trucks and motorcycles roaring by as if they are on the race track. You also have quite a few cars with loud stereos that vibrate you inside. The train comes in as well. The people are not friendly and or helpful. They seem to be at an inconvenience when you ask them anything. We were looking at staying for 2 months but only stayed a month and moved to another park. The Wi-Fi is horrible and doesn't work 1/2 the time. The sites are big, but pea gravel like cat litter. So when they water the grass it gets on the gravel and then it is like having cat litter in your house all the time even if you take off your shoes. They also do not allow you to get mail here. They wanted me to go open a post office box for just the 2 months we would be staying. For the price of this park: there are other decent parks for quite a bit cheaper, which are just as good with most of the same amenities. I wouldn't stay here again since there are other nice parks close by with the same amenities, and several hundred cheaper parks. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Site was flooded and didn't drain well. Wi-Fi was poor and office staff wasn't helpful, saying only that it worked throughout the park. We tried everywhere, and believe me, it didn't work well. Highway noise. Good restaurant/pub set up, and they would deliver food to your unit. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The park is well kept and everyone is friendly; however, the noise from traffic and the trains outweighs the convenience of the restaurant. We've stayed there several times in the past but won't stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A great site for an overnight! Sites are close and there are some young trees, but they wouldn't provide shade. No table or fire ring, but I understand fires are permitted if you bring your own "fire pit". Check in was easy and the desk people were great. The work campers were very helpful: I had to have some assistance hooking up sewer hose. Also unhooking the next morning. On-site restaurant and bar came in handy after a long days drive in rainy weather. I'll stay again if I'm in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
What a gem of a park only 3 hours north of Orange County for a first night on the road away from LA. Large level sites are small gravel and an easy access close to Hwy 99 but far enough away where the traffic cannot be heard. Everything worked and there was a nice pool and public area next to a full service restaurant and bar. Our gueses said the the showers and dressing area was the best of the 5 places we stayed on the trip. We cook in the rig but the beer battered onion rings and stuffed mushrooms for an appetizer were too much to resist. The park is owned by RV’ers and run by nice employees who offer quick service with an easy to access propane fill. This is a great place in Bakersfield of all places when going from here to there. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Only spent 1 night here but was very pleased with the whole park layout. Very large pool and clean also having the Cafe on the premises was nice as we didn't have to cook that evening which is nice because it is very hot in Bakersfield in the summer! Wi-Fi was fast and cable TV was good. This is a relatively new park so trees are still small but will be good when grown. Concrete slab would be nice instead of small gravel but our site was level and clean. No picnic table is provided either. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
They were redoing the entrance so there was no sign telling us we were at the right place unless we looked back. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. There seemed to be no security around and the park was not gated. We had no problems, just like to know our valuables are safe when we are gone. We had breakfast in the cafe, it was good and the service was good. Great coffee! Sites were easy in and out. I'm sure the signing problem will be fixed soon, but they do need temporary signs. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here two nights as we traveled north and south through California. Our first visit was OK, but the water pressure was too low to be able to use without the use of our pump, and they didn't fix it when requested. They didn't even follow up with us after our request. Restaurant there is touted as incredible, but it was just OK. Food was decent, service was very slow and the waitress didn't have her heart in it. Playground consists of a hot slide in a pile of sand. It certainly shouldn't be advertised as a playground. That's misleading. Pool is fine when it's not crowded but there's no shade at all for the hot tub, which got direct, hot sunlight all the way until sunset. They were doing work and blocking the exit to the park, forcing everyone to exit through the entrance. There were no signs or ropes indicating this so I started to exit through the exit until one of the crotchety old employees there yelled at us to stop. When we left through the entrance, we encountered a car trying to enter who had to back up into the busy entrance street. No signs at entrance explaining the problem either. This place is OK for a quick stop off to break up a long California trip, but that's about it. We'll probably give another local place a shot next time around. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We visited this park June 22 and again July 4. On July 4 the registration desk was operated by 2 grim faced, sullen, women. The women registering us seemed "out of it". She asked 3 times how many nights we were staying and could not find our name in the computer. The assigned site did not have WiFi. The pool was a little dingy but it was 3:30 pm, 107 degrees and heavily used by children. As I was about to leave the pool, a groundsman came and said a wrist band was required to use the pool and it was available at the office. No one mentioned this at registration and the literature said it was needed for children. As I needed to download messages and my computer was OK we went to the Internet Cafe and downloaded my messages. While my husband downloaded his messages we noticed staff leaving. Then a woman in the black staff uniform told us to get out as they were closing because they were having fireworks and to go out now through the back door as she had locked up. This was about 6:30pm We had seen a flyer about fireworks after sunset, but no-one told us they were locking up early. July 5 we left around 7 am the garbage area was overflowing and grungy. On a very hot day it is easy to be upset more so since our June 22 visit was very pleasant. Then we were welcomed by and efficient, charming woman who immediately pulled up all information on our previous stays on the computer. She created the atmosphere expected when you are guests of a well rated resort. It is hard to know how such deterioration happened so fast. We camped here in a Motorhome.
One of the nicest parks we have been in. New looking and very clean. Plenty of room between motorhomes. Great restaurant on site reasonably priced. Attendant assists you to your site with a golf cart. We have stayed here a couple of times in the last few years. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park definitely gets a 10! Nice big sites with a patio and grass. This park is kept so clean! They even brush off the electrical boxes and rake the sites after people leave. Nice pool, laundry room, etc. As a bonus, they have a great restaurant on site and will even deliver to your site. Newspaper delivered every morning and cookies at 3 each day! Has 24-hour security also. Every staff member was so friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay here again! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is real 5 star, and it is a 5 star plus park. It has paved roads with hard packed stone sites and beautiful landscaping, heated pool, hot tub and large and very clean men, lady's rooms, laundry's and an exercise room, laundry and exercise rooms have flat screen TV's. This campground also has a full bar and a restaurant. The food here is excellent, so good in fact the locals come here to eat and have happy hour, the owner and his wife are very friendly people and who have much pride in their park. And it shows every where. If you are traveling through Bakersfield and want to drop anchor for a few days or a week, this is a great place to stay, I myself stayed for 10 days and loved it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very clean park, right off Highway 99. We only stayed one night, but would definitely stay longer if in the area. Restaurant on site and very good. Staff was friendly and led us to site. Do not follow mapquest instructions when leaving. Turn right out of park and go to Panama Lane (signal). Turn left for freeway access. No U turn necessary. Camping World right up the road on Wible. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
While all the amenities are there the WiFi is horrible. We have been in the same area for the last 2 years and in both cases we were told we are working to get it better but it is ATT fault not ours not buying that any more will find some where else to stay while in Bakersfield We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice park, great restaurant and the employees were great. My problem with the park is that it's very nosey! There is a car dealership across the street and they use a loud speaker to call their employees from 7 am to 9:30 pm! And of course there is a train that goes through at 2 a.m. There is traffic noise, but it's do-able. This was one of the nicer RV parks, but the noise was enough to drive us out after one night. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is well laid out and has easy access. A large Camping World is across the street within walking distance. Staff was helpful, park was well maintained but Wi-Fi was very slow. The on site restaurant was amazing! We arrived late and tired and received great food with excellent service. They will actually deliver to your door if you wish. RVers received a coupon for one free desert per rig (big enough for 2) and 25% off a second breakfast. We will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice Park. Long, wide, level, gravel sites. All hookup connections are at the rear of the site. If you park in the middle so your steps are in front of the concrete pad, you must use long hoses and connections to reach them. TV is good. Wi-fi is iffy. Strong late at night, weak during the day. Have trouble connecting in normal day hours. But after 11:00 at night, and before 7:00 in the morning it's fine. Must have capacity problem, too many users really slow it down. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Third visit to this resort for a good reason: reasonable rates, easy access, clean, well maintained, restaurant on site (the real thing, not a dive). No pet fees, not a trailer park, nice pool area, sites are wide enough for big rigs. The only drawback: the pull throughs are a little bit short, causing us to have to un-hook our tow car (45ft w/tow). We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great park, located just off HWY 99 next to Camping World. The office staff was very hospitable and provide a follow me car to your site! The sites are level and hook ups are Big Rig Friendly. They have a great restaurant bar with entertainment on the weekends. This is really a great stop! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We enjoyed our one night here, and would come back for longer next time. Friendly, helpful staff guide you to your site. They have free coffee and cookies. Best laundry area we have seen so far, and great showers with glass doors. Everything is first class including the patio restaurant. Was a treat to have happy hour there. Only reason this park isn't a 10 is the TV and internet are both very disappointing. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is our second time staying at this park. It is very nice with paved streets, level sites and free Wi-Fi. The staff is helpful and pleasant. There is a very good restaurant right in the park. All in all a very nice place to stay. Only negative is there is some road noise and a lot of loud sirens in the area. But other than that no complaints. We would gladly stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park with wide roads and paved sites. Nice area, with a Camping World just down the road. Seems to be centrally located in Bakersfield, with easy access to highway. Nice clean restrooms. Free delivery of local newspaper every morning. Nice touch, also friendly and helpful management and staff. We camped here in a Motorhome.
THIS IS NOT an RV resort. On the plus side, it has full hook-ups which work well, and the price is super. First impression is that of an old drive in movie theater on a Sunday morning. Buildings are all portable, mostly long term residents with some very interesting trailers/campers (very old). Night time lighting is very, very limited. No noticeable security on the grounds to control midnight motorcycle racing through the park. Wi-Fi not working in our area. All in all, full hook-ups for a real good price, but, NOT a resort. We will by-pass this park on our return trip. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was our first stay here, it was so great we will be back. Very clean and well manicured lawns. Cement pads at each site. It would have been nice to have a table at our site. Newspaper delivered each morning. Great restaurant on site. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We had a great stay as normal. I feel sorry for the August reviewer that did not have a good stay. I have never experienced that type of behavior here from the staff. Check in was good except for the computer crashing. Sites were in good order and clean as usual. Lots of campers for the Labor Day weekend. Crowded, but everyone behaved and had a good time. The owners and staff put on several family oriented games and events. Paper delivery was a nice touch. I could not tell you about Wi-Fi due to the fact we camp and not surf the internet. The do have computers for camper use if needed. Pool was good, but heavy use made it difficult to keep crystal clear. Restrooms and showers were clean. We will return to camp here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We have stayed here several times but this will be our LAST. We arrived in a motorhome and temps were above 105. Once settled, we went to the pool to cool off. Two couples were in the pool consuming alcohol and smoking. There were 3 kids in the pool, about 9-13 years old. They were well mannered and considerate. After watching one man consume 3 beers, (they had a cooler at the pool), in about 30 minutes. He yelled at the kids to get out of the pool because they weren't old enough. There was a sign saying NO KIDS UNDER 14 without parent. Fair enough. Next to that sign it said: NO ALCOHOL. Found out the two couples WORKED at the resort. Reported it to the owner, who said she would "look into it" but she knew who it was before we even told her. We will NOT be back and encourage everyone else to avoid this "resort". We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park with friendly people. Very nice swimming pool. Unfortunate lack of shade. Trees are there but very small. Within a mile of a Camping World. Would camp there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here on a through trip to northern California. This is a true RV Resort. The cafe was really great with wonderful food. We met friends from the area for dinner and had a great time. The sites were nice with grass adjacent to the gravel parking area. We would definitely return if we were in the area. One note: if you exit the expressway heading south to White Lane, to make the right turn to White Lane, there are 2 turn lanes: stay in the left lane. This is because the road to the park is the next intersection. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Our third stay at this RV Resort. We enjoy stopping here on our way to/from Palm Springs. Great owners/staff. Nice gravel pads with concrete patios. Nice pool, wonderful fitness center and massage room. A decent on-site restaurant/bar. Easy access from the highway and yet its pretty quite here. Will be even nicer when the newer trees provide shade in future years. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is in excellent condition. There is a shortage of mature shade trees, but other than that it exceeded our expectations. The restaurant serves good food and drinks at reasonable prices w/Happy hour twice a day! Has clean restrooms, showers and gym. Sparkling clean pool and spa. Free coffee and newspaper in the morning. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an RV resort at RV park prices. It is a new, modern park with a beautiful office and restaurant building. The sites are level and have concrete patios and grass outside. The hookups, TV and WiFi work beautifully. We were only here for one night, but wished we could stay longer. Maybe next time. It is very sunny with very young trees, maybe they will give more shade as they get larger. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is the third time we have stayed at this park. It is clean, modern, and well designed. The sites are gravel and level. We stayed in a pull-through site and it was large enough to accommodate our 36 foot motorhome with the “toad” connected. The staff has always been very friendly and the food at the on-site restaurant/bar is very good (especially the "stinky fries" with Gorgonzola cheese!). We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park has nice pull through sites, an escort to site, and a nice pool with hot tub. Has a clean, large shower room. There is an on site restaurant that will deliver to your RV. Minimal shade so it could be hot in summer. Overall though, a very nice park! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Just a great park in Bakersfield with fairly easy on/off from State Hwy 99. Good grass coverage between sites but a little sprinkler work looked to be in order to me. Maybe they hadn't repaired them all from the winter, although Bakersfield did get quite a bit of rain this year. Ag base type gravel on the RV parking area and then a nice concrete patio. Big drawback however is the dearth of picnic tables. Did not see a lot but the ones they did have looked to used by long term people. Good thing we had our own portable table. On site restaurant is about one of the best places to eat in Bakersfield. I had a Fillet that was mouth watering and you could almost cut it with my fork. Great bar area with Micro Brew beer from Bakersfield's own microbrewery. Bathrooms are awesome as is the heated pool and spa. Free coffee and newspapers in the morning. Great! Camping Word and Stiers RV right down the street for repairs and supplies. I would recommend this park to anybody traveling through the central valley. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice newer park in town. Nice restaurant in park with happy hour drink prices. Nice staff, good sites, paper and food delivery to your rig. We stay here everytime we are heading out of state and it's a very nice park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice park that we always use when passing through town. Has a good restaurant, friendly staff. I always mark it down for the dirty decomposed granite around the sites. It gets tracked into the moho and into the tow car. I like this place, but if a cleaner alternative presents itself, I'll use that in the future. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I have stayed here several times before, and would give a 10, but things have slipped a little (possibly due to winter months). It's easier to access this campground from White Lane rather than Panama Lane exits. Sites are nice except the decomposed granite for pads gets everywhere. Trees will eventually grow into shade trees, but I get a space that the front door is always shaded, especially in the summer. Park is clean and well kept. Easy to maneuver around in the park. Employees/hosts have always been friendly and willing to help. Pool was nice, spa could use a little help this weekend. Restaurant has good food and a well priced happy hour. Store has a few items campers would need, but Camping World and stores are all around the park. Some traffic noise but I have been to much worse campgrounds. Some have complained about the roosters next to the campground, but they have not bothered me. Some say it's a bit pricey, but you are taken care of here if you speak up. Coffee/hot chocolate available all day and the 3 o'clock cookie is a nice treat. Some holidays there are family events held in the park. I will keep returning here as long as they keep treating me well. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is family owned & operated park. The park was clean and well-maintained. We attended a rally here and had full use of the clubhouse. The staff was very accommodating and helpful. The on-site restaurant has a 5-star chef and an excellent menu. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here on the first night of a southwestern trip. Found it adequate but over priced and over-hyped. Did not have a dog run but was told to walk our canine through the empty grassy spaces toward the front. Found this odd. The woman in the store couldn't be bothered. The morning paper delivery was nice but not worth the extra cost over other choices in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Relatively new park with little shade but extremely clean and uncluttered. Probably not a good place to be in the summer. We were looking for a winter retreat site and found it pricey and pretentious. Long-termers are relegated to the perimeter sites next to a busy road. The traffic noise didn't bother us, but our coach is well insulated and due to the cold weather, we weren't outside much. Lots of planned activities if you desire that sort of thing. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great place. What more could you want in a small place. There is a small store, friendly employees, level sand sites, nice pool and hot tub. The showers and restrooms are immaculate and there is a masseuse on site. The Crest Bar and Grill in the main building is great and even has music most nights. You can also have meals delivered to your site and they have Happy Camper wines for sale. Will definitely be back here. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is the third time we have RV'ed at this resort. We plan our trips around being able to stop here as it is always easy to use and Costco is about 2 miles away for fueling. The staff is friendly, the spots are great. As mentioned it's a little noisy but easy to tolerate. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was one of the best (if not the best) RV parks we have stayed in yet! The resort is pretty new, so the facilities are in very good shape. There was plenty of space at our pull-through site for a 33' long motorhome with 2 slides plus a tow car. We were helped by a very friendly staff at the office. The supply store/gift shop is well stocked with all sorts of items. There's even a full service restaurant attached to the office building. Menu looks great (though we only had breakfast, the biscuits & gravy were good). They even offer a daily happy hour with reduced price appetizers & drinks. There is even a spa, a massage parlor, and a putting green if you want! Internet cafe is nice as well. Bathrooms were sparkling clean with nice hot water and good pressure. Whirlpool is nice as well as the pool. There is a dog walk area here, too. The resort is located along a main road (not an interstate highway) so a little car and road noise can be heard. This was the only reason I gave a 9 rating and not a perfect 10. But this place is as close to perfect as I've seen. Camping World is located across the street and there are a number of good restaurants nearby. I highly recommend Bakersfield RV Resort and would stay here again in a heartbeat next time I'm in town. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park. Cement pads with grass between sites. We stayed at site #120, a pull through site. There was a valet to lead you to the site. Very clean. On a busy road, but we did not hear much noise. Stellar things about this resort is the restaurant. Food is great, and they will deliver to your site if you do not want to go into the restaurant to eat! A local paper is delivered to your day each day, if you request it. There are cookies available each day. They also have private showers with locking doors. Our only criticism is that there were a minimum number of picnic tables. Our site did not have one. We did hear train noise during the day, but nothing in the middle of the night. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice folks managing the park. We have stayed here several times. Like the convenience of having in park RV washing and detailing as they do a great job for a good price. Easy to park and convenient clean facilities. The bonus is they have fresh baked cookies every afternoon. Very pet friendly and well kept park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The best way to describe this park is that it's a hotel where you bring your own room. It's not a campground. The facilities were the same as an upper mid grade hotel; very good restaurant; bar; pool etc. All facilities were very clean. The staff was very helpful. When the World Series didn't show up on the TV, the front desk supervisor fixed it in less than 5 minutes. The place is relatively new so there's no shade to speak of. The only negative is the proximity to CA-99 and a railroad line made it a bit noisy. The trains were very infrequent though so it wasn't a big issue to us. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here on our way home from Lancaster as we headed to the Sacramento area. This is the first park that we have ever rated a 10. Frankly, would have given this park a higher rating if it were not for two problems. One, the scale on RV park reviews doesn't go any higher and two, there was no picnic table at our site. The restaurant, made up for there not being any picnic table. The food at the restaurant surpasses anything I have ever had at any sort of RV park or truck stop before. I would rate the restaurant a 4 out of 5 stars. And the only reason for that is because that I know there are those in the world that won't give a 5 star rating unless the dress is formal. The steak and the chicken were both exquisite and for a great price too. We will definitely be back here again. Happy camping! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Grass is nice to have between sites. Restrooms and showers are first class. Would probably look for another campground if we came to Bakersfield again during the cooler season (non-AC/open window time of year), one that is away from traffic noise. Hwy 99 is nearby, but Wible Road seems to be used as a drag strip at night. Sites along the back wall (back-ins) have some shade while the rest of the campground is out in the full sun. There is a restaurant on premises that we did not try, and they will deliver to your site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a newer park, so the trees are immature and provide no shade. The pool was very nice and not too cold. Was just right to cool off. The office building was nice. Spaces wide and easy to get into. Overall, this was a good experience. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The minute we pulled into this park we knew that it was going to be more than we expected and it was. The park is perfect in almost every way, from the very personable check-in process, including escort to the site, to the nicely paved roads and wide, long and paved sites. There is a great pool, jacuzzi, exercise room and best of all, a real full-service restaurant with a menu, bar, excellent food and service. When our travels take us through Bakersfield, we will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I only stopped for overnight but was tempted to stay longer. The customer service I received from the front desk was excellent. When I checked in, I heard people having fun in the restaurant and bar: wanted to join them! Nice pool area, the Wi-Fi worked great as well as the cable TV. Once the trees have matured, there will be decent shade I would think. I will stay here again anytime I am in Bakersfield which is my usual stop between Arizona and California. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A very nice park: loved the wonderful restaurant right in the park. Then enjoyed sitting in the lounge visiting with other travelers. Only drawback, is that the room between spaces was a bit tight for such a nice resort. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice resort in the heart of Bakersfield. Across from new car lots which use annoying loud speakers during the day. Very quiet at night. Excellent pool and spa. Pleasant restaurant with excellent reviews, but we did not use it. Spacious spots with easy hookups. We enjoyed our stay here and would return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a relatively new cg but its on its way to becoming a great cg. The grounds are clean, level and on the property they have a great restaurant and a decent work out area. There isn't a lot of shade but it will eventually grow in. Satellite and the Verizon air card worked well. The pull throughs are large enough if you don't want to unhook for the night. If we find ourselves in this area again, we would camp here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was our second stay in this park, and again just an overnight. The park is exceptional, very nice, with friendly and helpful staff. There is a restaurant on site, but it closed early due to the Independence Day holiday. Showers were very nice, and very clean, and a newspaper was delivered to our site in the morning. Sites are gravel, level, and have a grassy area adjacent. Wi-Fi was very good, and we’ll be back. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I liked this place before leaving home. Promptly received nice e-mail conformation letter telling about amenities instead upfront or cancelation fees or park rules. Easy access from freeway. Camping World just outside entrance of park. Upon entering the resort is a wide check-in area. Very friendly staff. Restrooms were like a fancy hotel resort with decorative tile and marble countertops all with modern touchless dispensers.Pool/spa clean with perfect temps. On site restaurant had excellent happy hour deals with delicious food. Nice computer station with supplied computers. Once the trees mature and they add picnic tables I would not hesitate giving perfect score and return anytime passing by. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very well kept fairly new park. Well planned and laid out sites. It has one area called battleship row for the big rigs. We chose not to stay in that area because we wanted to have our stern toward the afternoon sun. Wanted to avoid putting up the window coverings because of a relatively short stay and my gross indolence. Our site was a not a big rig site but worked just fine for us. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Good restaurant on site. We were there two nights and would return in a heartbeat. Park has a lot going for it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
There is a lot to like about this park. The pull-through sites were easy to level and hook up. There is a cable TV hookup included in your cost. The clubhouse has a very nice restaurant and is reasonably priced. The pool was very pretty and taken care of very well. The restrooms are immaculate. The grounds are nicely manicured and provide a pleasant setting. This RV park / resort presents an almost perfect camping experience. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Immaculate facilities (restrooms, showers and laundry room). Loved the pool and hot tub. Internet access worked flawlessly with strong signal. Friendly staff, nice restaurant on-site and fresh cookies every day at 3:00 pm in the store. Yum! Roomy sites - paved with healthy grass between. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Wow! This is a perfect resort park if you're traveling on Hwy 99; especially, if you're looking for a great place to over-night and do not want to un-hook. It is very easy off and on the freeway (but 3 blocks west, hence no noise). They have at least 80 60' to 70' pull-throughs and, most importantly, they have a really good restaurant/bar located in the clubhouse. There is a very nice pool and spa and a beautiful outside patio (attached to the restaurant) with lots of seating and an outside fireplace. They have every amenity (except tables on the patios), but great Cable TV, 50 amp, great Wi-Fi, as well as a bank of at least 5 computers to use in the clubhouse,and nice concrete patios surrounded by a grassy area. Sites are compressed dirt, very level, and the roads are paved This is not a destination park as, let's face it, it's in Bakersfield. But what a great place for over-night. It would also be perfect for rallies and/or large parties. Great place! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice park. While they do allow kids I wouldn't call it kid friendly as there is nothing for kids except one slide and spring toy in a sand box. But if you are adult it is a great park. We have stayed here before and will stay again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
LOVED this park! We were part of a rally & they treated us wonderfully. The staff could not do enough to help us, even on events they did not sponsor. The restaurant is a great amenity with great food & service. The stinky fries were delicious! Love the newspaper delivery & fresh cookies. The buildings were beautiful with murals, gorgeous tile accents, automated restrooms, etc. No detail has been overlooked. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Came to this park for a rally and was very happy that they held the rally here. Service has been exceptional and the people working here are going out of their way to make sure everyone is treated well. The sites are very level and just large enough for the RV, the tow vehicle or towed is parked in front on the street. Has not been a problem and with the wide streets there is enough room. We have decided that this will be the park we return to when ever in this area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice park. Stay here on the way North & South. Always friendly staff offering coffee & cookies. Each site has grass & crushed gravel, which can be troublesome with pets tracking it in. Great outdoor night lighting. Charming restaurant with nice happy hour menu. Will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was our first stop on our cross country trip. The sites are fine gravel and are large and level with grassy areas in between. The owners are friendly and accommodating, allowing us to receive a needed repair part for our RV. There is a Camping World right down the street. If you stay at the south end of the park, you may be bothered by the roosters crowing at all hours. We ended up staying here for a pleasant three weeks and would gladly stay here again if we were in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Utilized the restaurant. The food was excellent as was the service. Friendly staff. Will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 9 / 10 ]
The rate is $39.00 per night. Rate with Good Sam is $35.10. Weekly stay is $234.00. I hate to disagree with the reviewer from November, but this is an excellent park. The staff was outstanding. We asked for and received our morning paper. Yes, there is sand in the parking area, but even with a Golden Retriever, we had very little sand in our motorhome. The Crest Bar and Grill on site is great. We had both poo-poos and dinner on another night. Service was great, and the food was super. There were a lot of "folks" dining the night we were there-and it seemed as though service was quick and efficient. The reception area which also serves as a "small store" was very pleasant and a reasonable amount of items were for sale. Yes, we heard the roosters in the morning, but it was better than hearing trains or planes roaring nearby. We would definitely stay here the next time we are in the area. It is very accessible from CA 99. There is a shopping center about 1-1/ miles away for shopping needs. Try this park. We think you will like it. It is only about 2 years old. It was formally a Drive In Theater. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I hate to downgrade a park I rated so high less than a year ago but I must. We stopped here for a night on the way to Las Vegas and then a week later on the way home. On both stays we found the pet litter receptacle overflowing and no morning paper and the sand is impossible to keep out of the coach. In addition, there is a chicken farm/horse stable on the south end of the park that is noisy and smells very bad. While I know this is not controllable by the park, it does exist and will influence any future stays. Staff is very nice but the restaurant and gift shop have slipped a little too. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is one of the nicest places we have been. The paper is delivered every day. It has great dining. Office looks like a hotel when you walk in. We will stay here again when we are in Bakersfield. My reason for a nine instead of a 10 is no escort to site which I found surprising given the rest of the amenities. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great park in Bakersfield. Good access from CA 99. Nice sites with patio concrete and lawn between sites. Would be nice if they had a picnic table at the sites. Had a very difficult time logging on to the free WiFi but finally made a connection. Would stay again when stopping in Bakersfield. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Stayed only 1 night on our way from Mammoth to Pismo Beach. For a stop-over destination, this place can't be beat. Brand new, Friendly staff, so many amenities (many of them complimentary) and the bathrooms were like the Four Seasons. This was exactly what we needed after 6 nights dry camping. If you're heading through Bakersfield and need an RV Park you will not be disappointed! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed for 10 nights. Very nice park. Office personnel were great. Restaurant was great, ate there several time. Paper delivery to door daily was a hit with me. I do miss my paper. We will stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This facility can rightly call itself a resort as it provides all the amenities one would expect in a resort, such as pool, exercise room, restaurant, etc. Wi-Fi was free with good signal at each site. Cell phone access and cable TV great. Each site had a lawn and concrete pad, though picnic tables were missing at most sites. Park is new and it will be some time before the trees at each site are large enough to provide the much needed shade in hot Bakersfield. Registration Office attractive and provides coffee and cookies. Office personnel courtesy and helpful. The only negative for me was the free newspaper delivered to the occupants step arrived at about 8:00 am just as we were leaving. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This RV resort is truly a resort (unlike many who use the term). Concrete sites are level and spaced well. The restaurant will deliver to your door and has good food. Everyone who works there is extremely friendly and helpful. The pool is clean and resort-like, and the exercise room has the same feel. Kids are welcome, but they do not dominate the resort. There is a city park within walking distance to take dogs (though there were many off-leash dogs there). It is located in an urban area, which is safe and near a Wal-Mart and Starbucks (about 1 mile away). This is by far one of the nicest RV parks we have experienced. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was one of the best RV parks we stayed at this trip. It is family owned, and the owner was on site and very helpful. Nice pool and the laundry facilities were all in working order and clean. We left some hoses behind, and they couldn't have been more accommodating in sending them back to us. I would highly recommend this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Terrific park! We stayed here while getting some work done on our MH at CW. Simple check in, nice pool, and well maintained facility are just a few of the great assets of this park. They have a nice restaurant that is nice enough that many locals tell us they go there just to eat. If you want, they offer free delivery to your RV. They even provide you with a free newspaper on your doorstep every morning. We didn't notice any road noise at night, and only heard the train once. The next morning we were going to go to CW, but one of our hydraulic jacks wouldn't raise up. A very nice gentleman in a golf cart (not sure if he is the owner, manager, or employee) got a 6 foot long pry bar we could borrow to get the jack raised. It worked and we were on our way. We were planning on going back home after the work was done on our MH, but we liked the park so much, we decided to stay one more day. I would also like to add that if you don't have a computer with you for their wifi, they have four computers inside that are already logged in for use. If I ever come through Bakersfield again, I would definitely stay here again. I don't give out many tens because I feel there is always room for improvement. So my real rating is 9.5 with the only drawback being lack of shade. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I would recommend this park. It is very safe and clean and well maintained with no permanent residents!!! Nice staff, pool, store, etc. It feels like a class A resort; a little spendy but worth the money. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It's very refreshing to experience an RV park with exceptional facilities and service! This park is well-managed, to say the least. The DG (decomposed granite) surface was not a problem for us, since there is grass and a concrete pad to the side of every site. The restaurant on site is excellent. Workout room is small, but the equipment is top-notch and brand new. In fact, everything is new (park is one year old). Our only complaint (and the reason we're not giving it a 10) was highway noise -- it seemed louder at night, probably due to the wind direction. We highly recommend this park, even it you go a bit out of your way to stay here. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is the nicest private park we have stayed in. The park is perfectly clean and well laid out. The on-site restaurant is an award winning delight! The only thing that kept this from a "10" is the noise from local traffic and the railroad horns. Well worth it if you are in the Bakersfield area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Has lots of facilities-pool, workout room, showers, on-site restaurant and bar. Very nice--trees are small and will be years before any shade is available. Staff was very nice. Located in a busy area near the freeway and was noisy. A good destination if you are visiting in Bakersfield. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This place is awesome! Beautiful facilities, restaurant on site, clean, quiet. What more can you ask for when you're camping in the middle of Bakersfield, CA? The pool is heated and the kids had a blast swimming. Newspaper is delivered to your door. Wonderful people running the front desk. I highly recommend this place. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice campground. I saw this one being built and thought, "Why build a campground here? It will never work". Was I wrong. We stopped here on the way down to San Diego and again on our way back. It is not too far off of Highway 99 and easy to get to. The check in staff are fantastic, as are all the help we encountered. Sites are up to 70' long so you can keep the toad hooked up. WiFi is strong and easy to access. There are other campgrounds in the area, but for the slightly ($4) higher price, this is the one! It would be a great facility for a rally. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were very pleased to find out that this RV Resort had opened up in this area. They offer so many amenities, you really have no need to go anywhere else. This park will be very beautiful after all the trees grow. The staff from the registration desk to the maintenance workers were all very friendly and helpful. The park was relatively quiet until the morning rush hour but after awhile it was not noticeable. The sites are decomposed granite with a concrete pad at the entry door. We had our MH washed and thought at first there was going to be a huge mess, to our amazement, all the water soaked right in with no run off. I was pleasantly surprised. We did use the laundry facilities and they were very nice and adequate. We unfortunately did not eat at the restaurant so we cannot comment on it. We will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This excellent new park has great potential. When the trees grow and offer more shade and if it is kept up as it is now, it will be one of the best in the area. The owners have done all they could to create a first class RV Park. There are however, a few areas, which will require close attention. The bathrooms/showers are very nice, but might require high maintenance to keep up and a single toilet in the men’s room might not adequately service everyone when in need. The constant traffic noise from nearby Highway 99 is a detractor, however is not uncommon along this busy highway, and after a while tends to blend in and become somewhat acceptable. Overall, this is a fine facility and only promises to get better. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I am giving a ten for only the second time in our two years of full time traveling. What this place doesn't have, you don't need. Every thing was perfect including the price which was very reasonable, and the meal at the restaurant was great as was the service. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a first-class park with excellent facilities. All of the staff members, including those in the on-site restaurant, were very pleasant to deal with. The restrooms and grounds were modern and spotless. We were there 2 nights, and will definitely stay there again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Excellent new park. Spacious sites, terrific customer service and great restaurant. The only thing I would change is to make the pads concrete. We will stay here anytime we are going through Bakersfield. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Except for the spotty cable reception and the lack of a picnic table, this place is top dog and worth a stay. The on site restaurant is nice and they have a small internet cafe if you didn't bring your laptop. The hot tub was nice and the shower/bathroom was clean and really nice. The next time we're out this way we will be staying here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
As others have stated, this is a really nice, new RV resort. One of the more impressive RV check in office/stores I've seen. More like checking in at an upscale resort hotel! All facilities/buildings are first rate. The on site restaurant is really nice, and the food that we got from there was excellent. In fact, I had one of the best hamburgers I've ever had there! The Gargonzola burger. Highly recommend it! Interior roads are nicely paved. Sites are decomposed granite, which can be a bit messy. Sites are good size, with a nice concrete patio and grass area. Free Cable TV, exercise facility, and Wi-Fi are an added bonus. Only negative, and the reason we didn't give it a 10, is the road noise - but that's typical for any campground that is conveniently located near major highways. Hard to get highway convenience and quiet at the same time. This is a really well done RV resort. All the staff were super friendly and made us feel very welcome. We'd definitely stay here again if we are in Bakersfield area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A very nice park for travelers going through Bakersfield. The showers and bathrooms were spotless. Excellent restaurant on site. Wifi was strong. Staff were friendly and helpful. It's primarily a parking lot, but they've made a real effort to put green space between every spot and there's a beautiful pool, hot tub and gym. The only criticism I have is that the sites have gravel that tracks into the rig. We camped here in a Motorhome.
New park that is very nicely laid out. Staff were friendly and helpful. Sites are very level and have pull throughs for big rigs. Easy access from highway 99 in Bakersfield. A little highway noise, but not bad. Has a nice pool and a restaurant onsite that delivers meals to your coach! Nice touch. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very friendly, accommodating staff. This is the best campground we've ever stayed at, and we've stayed at several. They are excellent with lots of extras. It's new so the trees are small, but so nice and clean. I highly recommend this campground to anyone who appreciates the finer things in life. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park in SW Bakersfield just off of Hwy 99. Large sites and wide roads in park. Extremely friendly staff. Good cafe. I did not like the decomposed granite pads, though, because it tracks into the rigs. They should have put in concrete, or at least put in larger gravel. I would recommend this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This location was excellent - we stayed just one night on our way home from Oregon to San Diego. The staff and security were very nice. The property was very clean, even the bathrooms were very nicely decorated. Wished there was a dog run for the boys - if there was it would have got a 10 out of 10. There is a restaurant on site. The pool area is very nice and there's a small 9-hole pitching area. Some spaces apparently have their own hot tubs. Well worth the $35. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The park is sparkling clean, not a piece of trash to be seen, no dog droppings, spotless bathrooms/showers, fabulous pool and spa area, and great food at the on-site restaurant! This is an RV park in an urban setting, but it's extremely quiet, close to, but does not back up to the freeway and it beautiful. I highly recommend it to any Northern California travelers who need a stop over on their way south. Park management so very friendly. We will be back soon! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Wow, what a place. I think they had been open a week when we arrived. Pretty wide open, like a parking lot, but the pool area was great, along with the restrooms. They looked like something out of a 5 star hotel. Just stayed one night on our way to Yosemite. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We were lucky enough to get to stay here on opening weekend, and they treated us to all sorts of entertainment and free goodies. It ALMOST made the heat of Bakersfield tolerable! The clubhouse and restaurant are beautiful, the sites, though simple and not very big, are clean and they even manage to keep the grass green in that heat. If I ever have to go to Bakersfield again, I'll stay here! Camping World is just up the street from them, too! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very new park – very clean and well maintained, with the NICEST showers and bathrooms we have ever seen (tiled showers with glass doors), attached to a workout/gym area. Hosts are very helpful. Restaurant associated with the park (off the lobby) looked very nice, although we did not use the facility. It seemed to be very busy, and very popular, the night we were there. Wifi (free) at the campsites, and PCs available for guest use in the main building. Pool area was also exceptionally nice. Gravel pads with concrete patio and a little grass, although the trees are small, since the park just opened in April. We camped 1 night (overnight stop on a long trip) with no pets. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I found Bakersfield RV Park via Google. We were pleasantly surprised to find out it is new with ample spaces available. The office staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. We chose a back-in and it was steps from the pool/spa, bathrooms, laundry and restaurant. Everything is spotless. All sites are sand with grass, 50 AMP, new trees. The food and prices in the restaurant are wonderful. They even offer food service to the coach! ( I have arrived!!) and a newspaper at the door. There is a local train but we have not found it disturbing. We highly recommend this park and will return when we can. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a real resort, complete with a fantastic restaurant. The pool is clean, big, and very inviting on a hot day. The restrooms are cleaner than any we have seen even in fancy hotels and there is a small exercise room/gym. If you are passing through Bakersfield and need a place to stay this is it. The only drawback may be the railroad and highway noise but if you are there in the summer you probably will have your windows closed and the AC on so these will be minimal. The owners are definitely trying their best to make this a first-class park and they have succeeded. We camped here in a Motorhome.
If you are traveling through central California, be sure and check out the new Bakersfield RV Resort. Brand new park just opened last month very close to State Hwy 99. If it had paved sites I would give it a 10. A 9 though for the wonderful Crest Bar and Grill, and every amenity you can think of at a great resort. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
When we checked in we were impressed with the friendly staff. We we also introduced to the owner, who are always there. Pulling into our site was no problem. After we were all set up we went to the restaurant and had a bite to eat. The food was great! The sites had plenty of room for slide outs and a nice grassy area for the kids. We will be back when we come through town again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice new park in SW Bakersfield. Great facilities - restaurant, store, pool, fitness center, etc. Only negative for me was the decomposed granite pads - kind of dirty. Pads had grass and concrete patios, though. Staff was great! They are proud of their new place. Lots of room to maneuver big rigs - trees not a problem. We camped here in a Motorhome.
If you don't mind camping cheek by jowl alongside the freeway go here. I thought it was scary looking and they gave us two sites that we couldn't fit In with our 34' fifth wheel. I thought it looked like a homeless camp. You can tell they are trying to make it look nice, but between the small sites, freeway noise and the look of some of the "campers" we left and did not stay the night. The lady at the front desk was very nice and gave us our money back. Small lawn area in front of check in had nice fresh dog poop scattered around. Yikes! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The staff was great and the office/laundry/restrooms and pool looked good. The sites---not so much. Too many permanent residents--traffic in and out all night--little kids riding electric cars through our site. I have heard and used shared hookups but this place has shared sites--your front door and your neighbor's door look at each other with maybe 15 feet of separation. I would not stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The basis of this review is the belief that a score of 10 is equivalent to a hotel raring of 5-6 star hotel. This park does not meet the previously given 8/10 rating. There are many permanent-residents in this RV Park with tents, canopies, and other 'additions' adhered to the campers. Traffic noise is heard throughout the park. The park is busy with autos driving through and had we seen the security guard when we entered the park, we would not have stayed. The sites are pull through and share the common space with the site across from you. The sites were tight for our 37' coach The host was friendly and ready when we arrived. We stayed 1 night. We will not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very friendly park love staying here for extended periods, lots of shade. Older park but kept up very well. If you have any problems at your site the management will fix it right away. Month to month is only $340.00 very reasonable. This is our second time staying here during the winter months and feel very welcome. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was an ok place to stay overnight, but it has loads of long term residents in old and shabby trailers. The staff was very friendly and nice and we had no problems, just a good place for a stop over. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The advertising suggested more than what we actually received. Although there are many shade trees, the campsites are sort or curved pull through sites. Relatively level and hookups were good. There seemed to be a lot of full timers in the park, so it had a sort of cluttered appearance. Access from the main highway was convenient, although the area of town the park is in seems run-down. We would probably not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great park and even greater price. $26 per night with AAA or Good Sam. There are a lot of long term folks here, probably because of the price. Still it was clean and safe feeling. The reasons I didn't give it a 10 was the trains blew their whistles all night and the space we rented (64) was across from a long term unit (85) that had a lot of wind chimes that also blew all night. Other that that is was a wonderful place to stop over for a night or two on the way to Palm Springs. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice park. Our only complaint was that 95% of the park is for long term and most of the RVs were very old. I would not go out of my way to come here, but in pinch it is fine. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park has crescent shaped sites you just pull into. It was very easy with grass and a picnic table. Was crowded for this time of year but very friendly folks, and good rates. The museum downtown is great. 8 dollars I think, but well worth the price. Takes about 2-3 hours and alot of walking, which was nice. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Though the park is indeed basic - sites are pull in (almost parallel parking like) they do not enforce things like tow trailers extending into another space. They need to have exterminators come in for the ant problem. Thanks to this park I am carrying little sugar ants all over California, Arizona and Mexico. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 6 / 10 ]
Good, clean and basic RV Park. Friendly staff, generally quiet and clean. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We arrived at this Park during the lunch hour. The sign said to pick your space and register when the office re-opened. The sites are rather strange and you park nose to bumper with another unit or if they aren't full, you have the whole site. When we went up to the office, we were told that we'd have to move as that site was reserved. No barricades were in the entrance or exit of this particular site. We left. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We arrived after dark and found this to be a very easy RV park to navigate and easy pull thru site. Site was long enough that we could have left the truck/RV hooked up. But, the power pedestal was located too far forward in the site so we would have had to either use our extension and settle for 30 AMP. Instead we chose to unhitch. Verizon signal was strong and park charges extra for Internet so we didn't try their WiFi. Reasonable place to stay as we were just passing through and needed a place to stop for a could of nights. Noise from the CA 99 HWY was constant, but didn't bother us much. Campground is actually 8 miles south of Bakerfield, out in the agricultural area. Could smell fertilizer at times based on the direction of the wind. Not the kind of place I'd stay for long, but OK for a 2 night stopover. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very large RV park. All pull thru sites but some reserved for what looks like " storage" and others for monthly. There are several trailers with a lot of junk in their space making it look terrible! Seems like its been under construction for a while and for some reason construction has stopped. Does have one restroom and one shower. Laundry is four washers and four dryers. Dumpsters throughout the park and two fenced in dog parks. Electric, water and sewer connections good. The $20 rate is an internet special and you have to stay 3 nights. The office is only open weekdays from 3 - 6 pm and closed on weekends. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Good for overnight. Level sites, power good, plenty of room for big rigs. Easy access to freeway, even back to the 5. We would stay here again when traveling between south California and north California. Nothing special - some freeway noise. Easy registration. Looks like they are working on improvements. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We just stopped here for an overnight stay. Seems like a good value for $27 (including tax) per night. The park seems new: there is still construction going on, but all the sites are complete and there is landscaping (but the trees haven't grown to the point of providing shade yet). The sites are very large, very level dirt with crushed rock topper. Pedestals for electric, water and sewer have a concrete base which should make them last longer. There are two fenced dog runs. Roads inside the park are brand new, wide black top. The park is a quarter mile from the freeway, which is convenient but adds a bit of noise. I might have given a slightly higher rating, but at the time of our visit there were lots of ants (and some spiders) at the park and our site: red ants, black ants, large ants, tiny ants. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Easy on and off. Level gravel sites. Nice office folks. Clean, neat park. Wi-Fi a little slow. Cable a little fuzzy. Some highway noise. Great for an overnight - would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park is surrounded by farm land and its odors. The park has planted trees and only small trees are growing at this time. No grass, just dirt and gravel parking sites. The cable TV was fuzzy, and the Wi-Fi was good. There was no one in the office Sunday night and so you self-check-in on the honor system. We paid the next day and the manager/ owner was very nice and friendly. There are many long term people at this park. This park is OK for overnights. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Have stayed here before, but this time there was no one in the office even though I arrived during the posted office hours. Overnighters are restricted to one row in the park and when I pulled into a site, I found that the utilities were so far forward that I would have been sticking out into the street. Since there was no one there for advice, I moved on. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Glad we found this park, clean, well organized, easy in and out, good price and friendly manager. No amenities, BUT we were just over night guests anyway. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
OK for an overnight. There is construction going on and at the time we stayed only one bath and one shower. We did not need either so it worked for us. Would stay again for a night. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground is good for an over-night stop. It is easy to locate, well organized, and easy to navigate, even at night. It lacks a pool, exercise equipment, club house, playground, store, or restaurant. The only restrooms are combined with a small laundry room in a temporary trailer at one end of the park. The trailer is locked at 10 p.m. At check-in I was advised that the on-site construction would eventually produce an office/clubhouse containing resort-type amenities. The campground has two decent sized dog runs, and adequate areas to walk dogs (limit of 2). We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Happy to find an RV park that is close to the grape vine when traveling south on I-5 towards LA. I like to go up the pass first thing in the morning so very convenient for that. It's 9 miles east of exit #239 on Bear Mountain Blvd. and Union, close to Hwy 99. Nice clean newer park, very quite and well laid out. It's mostly all large pull throughs so plenty of room for our motorhome slides and car in tow. Streets are paved, sites are level and gravel. Has some green grass on ends of streets and inside dog run. Manager was nice and courteous. Wi-Fi worked good (average) also has a few cable channels and local HD channels are available over airways. I will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate shown Good Sam discount. Site was a gravel pull through and level. Some sites have sewer connections under the picnic tables, making it awkward to connect. Cable TV had limited channel selection. Wi-Fi did not work, even after staff rebooted router and antenna. Laundry was clean, but the dryers were too slow to dry clothes. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great park for an overnight stay. Easy access from I-5 or 99. Eliminates the need to go through Bakersfield. All sites are pull through and extra long. Our truck, 38' 5'er and an extra car all fit nicely in the site. Didn't use the cable TV, although available. Over 35 channels with the antennae. Good Verizon phone and Wi-Fi signal. Didn't use the park Wi-Fi, although available. Due to a recent fire, no showerhouse, bathrooms or laundry were available. New facilities being worked on. We'll stay here again if we pass through this area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Bear Mountain RV Resort is just off Highway 99, eleven miles south of Bakersfield. Clean, well taken care of, however there is no shade, no grass, no pool, no nothing'! Traveling with a 12 year old Grandson who was bored with nothing to do, left early. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here one night driving between Sacramento and Palm Springs. It is right off 99 with very easy access. You can reserve a spot on their website. The cashier claimed that in the future they will not be giving AAA discount but they still gave me one. The cable TV did not work, however, within one hour a handy man cleaned out the connection and installed a new connector and it worked great. The desk clerk told me to not even try to connect to the internet and I noticed even my i-phone couldn't get a connection, so don't count on that. The sites are decomposed granite which tracks into your RV constantly. They had an adorable Pottyland fenced grass area for pets. Overall, it's a great overnight stop for $25/night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It's nothing fancy, but has convenient access to highways 99 and I-5. Not too much highway noise; surrounded by fields on the other 3 sides. Lots of motorcycle noise from permanent residents! All sites are pull-throughs, with one section just for overnighters. Grass is only at the ends of each row; sites are entirely gravel, with a few trees that are too small to provide any shade. Sites are wide and long; lots of space! Free Wi-Fi was very flakey, and didn't work most of the time (management was waiting for their supplier to get replacement parts in stock). $25 price includes Good Sam discount. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We have stayed at this park overnight twice every year for the past 2 years when traveling between Northern Calif and Arizona each winter. We were pleased to find a park which allows us to bypass the congestion through Bakersfield. It is right off Hwy 99 and also convenient to I-5 when traveling east to west through the small town of Arvin. The park is very clean with easy pull-through, wide, gravel sites even though there are many fulltime residents. The office has a small selection of groceries and movie rentals and the staff is friendly. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed in this campground overnight. It is nothing special, but it is right off Highway 99 and easy to get in and out. Very pleasant campground host/manager. Large, flat, pull through sites. Good Verizon cell phone and air card reception. The only reason I did not give the park a 10 is because there is nothing to do, but for a quick hook-up, and over nighter, or if you are visiting the area and not looking for a 'resort', this place was great. The rate reflects a Good Sam discount. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Wouldn't want to be here in summer heat, but it's a good place to stop when traveling on I5 or 99. Very friendly folks, level sites, good Wi-Fi and laundry, plus the price is right. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The water front sites are good with plenty of mature trees for shade. Fire pits are big enough for a good bon fire. The restrooms were older, but clean. The power and water pedestal was old, the power worked but the water bib leaked enough to make a puddle behind the trailer. The sewer connection was uncovered when we got there and the threads inside were cracked and broken so I couldn't get a tight seal on my sewer hose. Not really a problem until it gets above 90 degrees and the aroma starts. We will stay here again but don't waste your time with the non water front sites. The door side of your RV will be on the side of the road and you will have to deal with cars passing within 6 feet of your door. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This Kern County Park and campground is actually quite a ways outside of Bakersfield, on the other side of Interstate 5. This would not be a park to stay at to visit Bakersfield. The rate reflects $39 for a waterfront site with utilities, plus $7 for our towed vehicle. This is very expensive for a county park and very unfair to charge for a towed vehicle. We arrived at this park without reservations and without much knowledge of the park. The gate attendant lady seemed amazed that we would arrive without a reservation, even though there were many sites available. She asked what type of site we wanted, waterfront or not and utilities or not. Since we had no familiarity with the park, we asked to drive through so that we could get some idea of the layout and what we wanted. She refused, even though the park was not busy at all. That is the first time that we have been refused that common courtesy. We decided to go with waterfront and full hookup. She gave us a list of sites available for one night but cautioned us that we could only stay one night. (We found out later there were many sites available for more than one night.) She also cautioned us not to set up on the site until we came back and let her know which site we had chosen. We found a site and unhooked the towed. One of us drove back and the other stayed with the RV at the site. When we went back to let her know and to pay, she said that we had not done as required and that we had set up on the site. For some reason this became a big deal. Regardless, we finally got checked in with one of the worst park entrances we have ever experienced. The site and park is actually quite pretty. There are many, many rules, which everyone seems to ignore. There was trash around our site which we picked up. The park does seem in need of some TLC. The overall park is very large, and we had a great time riding our bikes around. It was quiet at night. Our utilities were good, and our Verizon phone and data plan worked well. We were able to find a site that we could use our satellite. So, overall, a nice park but way too expensive, and there is no reason to put up with a rude gate attendant, so probably will not return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We will not be back for awhile. We have been coming here for over 30 years! In the last couple years it has gone down hill fast! The flies have been bad for the last 10 years. But these last two trips, one in June and one in September were awful!!!! The power grid is old and if it is hot it can't handle a full campground. The grass, that has always been the best part of this campground, and even the trees, are all dying! The sprinklers are either completely broken or just shoot out to make mud puddles! The lake is really low and they must not be buying any water because the aqueduct is full and bypassing the diversion channel. It is too bad because it is only a 2 hour drive for us and was very family and group friendly with the grass campsites. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We arrived at 5:30pm to a lake front site. The 30amp electric breaker would trip with 15amp usage. The picnic table was so termite eaten that it was unusable. Tree limbs in roadway had to be dodged. Bathrooms were dirty. No lid on septic hole, just two rocks which allowed septic smell to permeate the air close to the kitchen and bedroom windows. I called to report these issues the next morning and was told I would get a call back but never did. They wanted to charge $15 for a car to park at the site for the night or $7 to park for the night at the overflow lot which was far from the site. It seems as though the county isn't taking pride in their park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice campground. Spacious sites, fishing, boating. A little bit pricey. Regular site, $26. Not bad but were charged $7 more for the toad. Not right since it was "towed" in. Check-in was bad. I didn't have a reservation since we didn't know we were going to stop here. Girl seemed to be frustrated in finding us a place (there were plenty). The other girl was busy listening to her cell phone ring and being with the security guard. People lined up behind us. Didn't open the other window. Had a spot where we could observe the kiosk. Got worse later in the day. Wouldn't stay here in the summer. They have a HUGE overflow area. Way to many people for me. Check it out for yourself. Off season for me. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great park that gets very crowded at times. We stayed right next to the playground to it was noisy, but for us desirable with the kids. They do not enforce the quiet time, but the lights shut off by 10:30 so everyone heads back to their spots. Access to the lake is close for most spots. There can be a lot of bugs when it is warm and of course it can be very warm. The sites are very large with plenty of room between. The bathrooms are not the best, but were clean while we were here. I did not see any showers. Lots of trees for shade everywhere. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Reserving a space at this campground requires that you call the Kern County parks department during a very narrow window of time (8 AM - 12 PM weekdays only), and it took many attempts and one very long on-hold period to get through to the person handling reservations. The reservation staffer who answered was not rude as such, but their tone and attitude was very much "I'd rather be doing anything but talk to this person right now." Upon arrival at the site, be prepared for the extra $15/day fee ($12/day off-peak) to park a towed or separately-drive vehicle at your camp site. The frequently-asked questions PDF on the campground website states that 2 motor vehicles are allowed at the camp site and that the first vehicle is included in the reservation price. Unfortunately they consider a motorhome to be the first vehicle, and a towed/separately-driven vehicle is subject to the additional fee. The camp sites were nicely maintained, with simple but adequate grass landscaping. The campsites have large, mature trees that provide shade for the picnic and common areas, but that do not overhang the camper pull-throughs. There is a nice picnic area with fire ring for each campsite, and campers are advised on check-in where to keep their camping gear so as to not get it soaked by sprinklers each morning. There is a heavy insect presence at this campground, owing primarily to being next to a large body of water in a warm climate. Bring insect repellent and/or a bug zapper - you WILL need it! If you need to buy these or other supplies, the nearest shopping is in Taft, CA or Bakersfield metro, about 18 miles either West or East respectively of the campground. The park does have a small supply store, but their inventory is very limited. The campsite was quiet on the Thursday we arrived and through Friday. Saturday and Sunday however were a whole other matter, as campers with watercraft were starting and running their watercraft at their campsites prior to taking them to the boat launch. The campground would do well to disallow this activity in the camping areas. There is an enforced quiet period, but that only applies from 10:00 PM to 7:00 AM. In conclusion, this park operated by Kern County is a reasonably nice facility, but there are a number of drawbacks that would make me hesitant to stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We enjoyed the campground the evening we arrived. There were spaces available even on Thanksgiving weekend at this lakeside county park. When we woke up in the morning, though, the wind had shifted, and they were dumping dairy sludge on fields less than a mile away. The stench was unbearable, so we left immediately. Since this is the off season, sites were only $21. Plus $4 because we have a dog. Plus $5 because we have a toad. Ouch. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campsite is nice. It has a lot of grassy areas, trees, and a little bit of shade. There is also a nice play area if you have children. However, the lake is small and muddy, and not ideal/ potentially dangerous for swimmers with the boats on the water. We camped there in October and with just a few boats on the water. The water is choppy and is not good for wakeboarding. If your main purpose is to wakeboard, this is not the ideal place for you to camp. In addition, they erroneously gave us the wrong campsite and then made us move even after we had all of our chairs, tents up. They did not try to accommodate or compensate us for our troubles even though it was their mistake. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This place would be good except for all the flies, excessive oder from the cow farms, people walking through your site, and the excessive heat in the summer. If you there in the winter, and the weather is all right, it's a nice place to stop for a couple of days. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The campground at Buena Vista Aquatic park was not very busy at the end of February so we had a choice spot at the lake front where waterfowl were literally foraging in the grassy area at the waters edge and right in front of our campsite. The view of Lake Webb as the sun was setting was awesome as was the view, on the other side of the lake, of the snowcapped Temblor Range. A 35 mile drive to the other side of this mountain range is the Carizzo Plain national monument. Buena Vista park was a great overnight stop and the drive through the town of Arvin to Tehachapi Pass in our 31' MH was scenic and an easy drive. We will definitely make a return trip. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Just a little update to our previous review. We stayed here again on our way back and now the rate is 22$. Rating is lower because the campground becomes crowded with day users on weekends and cleaning up seems to be nobody's priority. Also we had a peek inside the washrooms and they were really outdated. Not even a curtain for the shower stall. And due to the weekend crowds cleanliness was an issue too. However, it is still a very nice nice play to stay, but during the season we would recommend to avoid the weekends. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
If you are tired of noisy and expensive RV Parks right off the interstate, then take the few extra miles to find quietness and solitude here. It is dry camping, but all sites are paved as are the roads through the park. A picnic table and fire pit on your own backyard comes with each site. Very good privacy since the sites are well spaced. Most sites are shaded by trees. Very nice and relaxing setting. Really quiet at night. A concrete bike path runs from the park easy and flat around the nearby lake and continues all the way down to Bakersfield. Rate is the off season price. I think it's 50% more during the season. We will stay here again for a few nights whenever we come through the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Clean grounds and friendly staff but they are not overly attentive. If you ask for something they are happy to help but don't wait for them to offer. Location a little difficult to get to. Overall a nice park though that we would visit again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate is what we paid Nov. 2011 - $9 senior plus $4 for 1 dog. In mid-March, the base rate doubles to $22 plus $4/dog, which can get pretty expensive for dry camping with pets. There is no way to self-register; you wait for a ranger to come by to collect the fee. In April, no one came by so we stayed for free. In the fall, we were told that rangers quite often don't come by during the week, especially in the off-season (Oct. 16 - Mar. 14). We only saw them twice during our week's stay in November. We were also told that the campground can get pretty loud and wild during the summer, with lots of drinking, partying, etc. We had the place practically to ourselves in the fall with a lovely spot on the river. In the spring, all the river spots were taken, but our site away from the river was quiet and secluded. All of the sites are pull-through, half-circles which could get tricky with a big rig, but was fine for our 32' fifth wheel. Watch for low hanging branches. The campground is about 10 miles east of Bakersfield. Don't follow Google directions to get there; we ended up having to back out the road to the county dump before we could find a place to turn around. Use the map view and plot your own route. Although dry camping, there are lots of water spigots and a dump station. Cell service is good. Didn't use the rest rooms, but they looked adequate. If you bicycle, you'll love this place with a paved trail all along the river and lots of other side dirt trails. We thoroughly enjoyed both stays here and definitely would return in the off-season. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Like everyone one else has commented; very clean and well managed park with the uniqueness of parking in an orange grove. Be sure to check out the fruit gift shop just around the corner; really a good selection. Definitely will stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Overpriced for an overnight stay. Good power, which was necessary because it was over 100 when we got there. Desert landscape. Probably pretty nice in winter/spring. Just too hot to enjoy while we were there. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our gravel pull-through site was level and more than long enough for our 40 foot motor home and toad. Very good width between sites. Campground was very clean and well maintained. Friendly staff. Wi-Fi was adequate. Good Verizon signal. Although all sites are separated by orange trees they are all short and did not block our satellite dish not that it mattered since the cable TV had 70 channels. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park is easy access to CA Rt. 99. Good park as a break when traveling but we would not stay here long term as there is nothing remarkable in Bakersfield except the news reports of 25 gang shootings since January 2014. Park is nice, safe and clean. We were told that the season for orange picking is in January so we can't report on the fruit but the park is located in an agricultural area. Lots of birds roosting on the RV and nearby trees. We used this park to visit Death Valley (three hours) and Sequoia Nat. Park (two hours). Train noise is audible in early morning. We stayed here three days. Would stay here again if in the area but would not go out of our way to stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I stopped at this park for a halfway point destination between Death Valley and Sequoia/Kings Canyon. It was such a nice break after the dry barren desert area of Death Valley to see some green trees and grass. Orange groves lined the road and the sites in the campground are set up between trees. Picking season is January to April and I was able to find a few of the navels left - very tasty - but only a very few. The facilities were spotless except for a few leaves in the pool. I didn't go for a swim though as the water was very cold. I would definitely stay here again, Good Sam discount applied. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Friendly park with spacious pull-through sites that sit between orange trees. Good hookups, including cable. Had a problem with the motorhome and a mobile RV repair truck came to the park to resolve it. Has a fenced area for the dogs which we always appreciate. Have stayed here before and will again, I'm sure. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is our FIFTH stay here, and I was sad to have been treated so poorly at check-in. We arrived about 4:45 on a Wednesday evening and I waited politely until the person finished what she was doing on her computer. She was very curt and didn't want to tell me anything when I asked about pool hours or the lodge. She was very rude and acted like she just wanted me out of there. We had trouble with the Wi-Fi which we had never before so I'm not sure what was going on. She probably could have told us to close everything before logging onto to Bright Star Wi-Fi. Sites very wonderful. Level and big!! Clean bathrooms and a wonderful little exercise room. I'd like the pool heated, but that's just me, I guess. Easy off and on from the freeway. Yes, train and freeway noise, but we have had worse. Another person didn't even know about the bathroom codes so she didn't even explain that to a newbie. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I had to wait the 90 days to admit I made a factual mistake in my review of my March stay. I had said that the park charged me more for 6 days than 7 and I gave them a 1. It turns out, I forgot that I had bought a lot of propane on my credit card and that's what the extra charge was. So, my wife and I loved the place, the people were very nice, the laundry and bathrooms were clean and the oranges were still in season. We would most certainly stay here again and I admit I made a mistake and regret my error. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park with very nice owners/management. Very clean, good sized spaces, well maintained, free donuts and candy in the office, nice lodge, pool, fenced play area for the kids, and WiFi is decent close to the office. Decent store in the office with mailboxes for each spot. We were here for a little over a week and would definitely stay again. Only negative is the distance to stores and restaurants. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park really is a gem; especially, for the price in California. From the friendly folks at check in, to the really nice clean park, it was a pleasure to stay here. We had a great pull though site where we didn't have to unhook our tow. The utilities we're laid out where they should be. The site was a good size with easy in and easy out. A lot of parks could take some lessons from these people. Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 10 / 10 ]
Perfectly located, great and friendly staff. Each site has 2 orange trees on each side of your rig. When the oranges are ripe you can pick all you want. Sites are all level with full hookups. The Wi-Fi is awesome and free! Pets are welcome and the bathrooms are spotless and roomy. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Everything about the park was wonderful. We paid for a week and only stayed 6 days. The park charged my card an additional $49 for the amount of 6 individual days in comparison to staying a week, which is cheaper than 6 individual days. That sours me on ever going back which is a shame. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great park we love to come every year. The sites are long and have room between them. There are orange trees at every site. The fact that we can pick the oranges is a bonus, but we would come anyway. The staff is friendly and the park is clean. The hook-ups all work. We think it is the best park around. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A great place to park overnight if you are traveling E-W on Highway 58. Easy on and off. We arrived after dark and it was easy to park in the generous pull-throughs. In the morning, we picked a few of the oranges remaining - one does indeed park among a large grove! They serve coffee and pastries in the morning, which was very nice - all in all, we really like this spot and the people. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The park is located just off CA 58 a few miles East of Bakersfield. It is a great location for a stop over. The office staff was friendly and efficient. The roads are asphalt and in good condition. Sites are reasonably level, gravel, and are long and reasonably wide. Services are excellent - 50 Amp available, good water pressure and sewer. Cable is also available, but we didn't use it. Wireless is excellent. Best we have seen at an RV park with a strong signal and fairly fast speed. If you like oranges, well this is the place to come. There are loads of trees throughout the property and they are all loaded with fresh oranges. It is help yourself. We stayed 1 night and will return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
They have an enclosed dog area as well as lots of places to walk the dogs. These folks know how to make you feel at home and they are very efficient. Donuts in the morning are popular (at the office)! We love coming here this time of year for the fresh oranges - YUMMO! Used the bathroom and shower. Not their fault but someone brushed their hair in the shower (ICK). Cleaning crew was waiting for me to leave so that issue was remedied I'm sure. We always stay here on trips though the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The rate shown includes Good Sam and a discount for paying cash. We stop at this park on our way South every year and love the atmosphere here. We enjoy picking our own oranges, best oranges we have ever had! Very clean park and staff is friendly. Morning donuts and coffee is a nice touch. Sites are large and most come with your own orange tree. Easy access from freeway and yet quiet. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice campground. The rate shown includes Good Sam and a discount for paying cash. The campground is surrounded by orange groves and the sites are separated by orange trees. You can pick as many oranges as you wish. The sites are long and wide, mostly level on gravel. All utilities worked well, although the sewer pipe connection was about 6" above the concrete slab. The Wi-Fi was excellent and the cable TV included over 160 channels. The location has easy access to CA-58 and is on the eastern edge of Bakersfield. There is a fruit & nut store about a mile away that offers fresh oranges, nuts and dates for sale and they will ship. We would definitely return to this campground. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice quiet park, in December during a cold snap! Paved roads but sites are gravel. Major bonus is picking fresh oranges right outside your window in season. Lovely lodge clubhouse too. We camped here in a Motorhome.
As the name suggests, this beautiful park is located in an orange grove. There are orange trees between each site and around the perimeter. We arrived in December when the oranges were ripe and ready for picking. They give you a bag at check in to fill with oranges! We did, and they were some of the best tasting oranges we have had! The sites are level with all amenities. I think $38/night is a little steep, but a very nice park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is our second trip to this park. This is a very nice park. Lots of orange trees. We had a pull thru with full hook up with wide level sites (although they were gravel) that were long enough that we would not have had to disconnect our truck from the 37 foot rig. We stayed three days. If you like a nice clean well organized park, this is the one. Nice pet areas, and if you like oranges then you can pick some when they're in season. Showers and bathrooms are very clean. Easy to find just off Hwy 58 leaving Bakersfield. We camped here in a Motorhome.
If you like a nice clean well organized park, this is the one. Nice pet areas, and if you like oranges then you can pick some when they're in season. Showers and bathrooms are very clean. This is one of very few RV parks that has a special area for washing your car or motorhome. Easy to find just off Hwy 58 leaving Bakersfield. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our 2nd visit. Very clean and well maintained. No lights on pedestals making it difficult to find your site after dark. Oranges won't be ready for picking until December. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great park, with wide level sites (although they were gravel) that were long enough that we would not have had to disconnect our truck from the 40 foot rig. Being right in the middle of an orange grove was really neat. Good Wi-Fi, water pressure, and friendly staff. What more could you ask for? We would gladly stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice park with very wide paved roads. Sites are gravel, no grass. You are staying in an orange grove but with lots of room. Nice swimming pool and facilities. Easy CA 58 on/off access, little if any road noise. Entire area is fenced. Would be nice to have premium sites, extra charge, that have grass. A very nice place to stop for the night just a short ways from town. We camped here in a Motorhome.
After being on the road 3600 miles and many parks this Orange Grove RV Park was like heaven on earth. Very clean, level, beautiful roomy sites that have orange trees on both sides of each site. I did hear one train but it wasn't a bother at all. This is a large park that will accommodate any rig regardless of size. I will stay here again!! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Conveniently located off the highway and well marked. Easy check-in with ample parking. Big sites with a shade tree and table but no grass. Very clean pool areas and facilities. They also have a lounge with TV, games, and pool table. We'll be back! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Large, level, easy access pull throughs. Very clean, well maintained facility. Good efficient office staff. We stayed one night, but this will be our regular stop going through this area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We used to use this park when it first opened. Then we got into the habit of using another very nice park due to its convenient location in town. Recently, our assigned pull-thru sites have been too short to leave the toad hooked up and still reach all the hook-ups. Last time this was specifically addressed with office staff to no avail. This trip I needed to have the toad left on the motorhome. Reviews reminded me that Orange Grove's sites are wide and long, so here we are. We'd forgotten how nice this park is. The hook-ups are well located, making it easy to leave the dinghy attached. The dirt/gravel site looked like it might not have been groomed recently, but the auto levelers kept all wheels in contact with the ground. Since the park is located in the foothills leading to the Mojave desert, you won't find grass at your site, but the orange trees you park amongst are well manicured. They add beauty and character without getting in the way of slides, satellites or entrance/exit to the site. The park is located far enough off the freeway for minimal noise, but close enough for easy access. Orange Grove was, and continues to be, a top-notch rural park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We always enjoy staying here. We have stayed here about 10 times since 2003 and the place hasn’t changed, well, maybe for the better. Always clean, well manicured and well maintained. I felt guilty using the restroom because it was so clean. Sure there are trains that go by, but not annoying and neither are the trucks that go by. About the only negative thing I can say is the pool was colder than I like, but that didn’t stop anyone else from enjoying it. Price hasn’t changed in years. Will definitely stop again on our way through. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is clean, sites level, great laundry and to top it off a fully equipped exercise room! There is also a pool and kids playground. All the sites are huge, we parked our 40 foot 5th wheeler and truck in the space with room to spare. It feels like you are camped in the middle,of an orange grove, literally. The sites are separated by a line of orange trees which, when they bear fruit you are welcome to pick. It is a little out of town but far enough off the interstate not to be bothered by traffic noise. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Clean and modern park. The people at reception, and the many written instructions on campground everywhere, could be more friendly. Not much to do in direct area because it is situated in less neat area of Bakersfield. Lot of train-noise in the evening. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is our new gold standard. We love it. Nice wide sites, level, flat, and 90' long! .And quiet! .Orange trees in every site with orange groves all around the park. Very nice staff. We've stayed in other parks here in Bakersfield. but none can come close to this. We definitely will stay here again. They even have a free wash rack for rigs or cars. We will definitely stay here next time we're in Bakersfield. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was our first time staying here and we like this park. The sites are level and the utilities worked well. The Wi-Fi was fast most of the time but would crawl at other times. It has a small, but nice, workout room and a pool table in the lodge. There were a few oranges still falling off the trees and they were very good. Our site was next to the back fence and noise was not an issue. The woman that checked us in was very friendly as were the staff. One of the staff even offered his 4-wheeler to us when we were walking to the fruit store around the corner. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have camped here many times and it is always in good condition. The staff are friendly and courteous and efficient. The site are a nice size, easy in and out and great oranges when the picking season is in. We will continue to use this park in our travels. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I can understand the previous reviewers comments. It is definitely less attractive and noisier in the section where they stayed. The gal who checked us in was very friendly and helpful. We ended up staying here longer than our planned overnight because our hitch broke when we disconnected. (Thank goodness Bakersfield has a Camping World where we could order a new part to fix it.) Upon extending our site rent, subsequent employees at the desk were more on the cool side, though not unpleasant, so maybe it depends on who you get when you check in. Of course, this park is all about the oranges, virtually nonexistent in either fruit or blossom during our visit. Apparently the season is December to March. We would certainly stay here again for that treat! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I guess I'm the only one to review this campground that's not too excited about it. We have stayed here before and said we would not stay again, but traveling with friends who wanted to stay, we did so. I cannot fault any amenitie; those are OK-- big spots, orange trees, nice pool, etc. But the attitude of the check-in people needs improving. They're very cold and not welcoming at all. The park was not full at all, maybe 15 percent. For some reason the girl put us in spots 2 and 3, right next to the exit and the side road, (Edison Rd). I know, I should have asked for a spot in the back,away from the road, but I didn't think she would put us up front with a nearly empty park. I thought the traffic would die down at night (big rigs hauling oranges). It did, a lot later. But started again before 5:30. And you get freeway noise. And the trains! There must have been 4 or 5 that night. Needless to say we won't be staying here again. If you take your hearing aids out at night or have a very soundproof coach you'll do OK here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
One of my favorite parks. The sites sit between orange trees and the smell of orange blossoms hit me as soon as I stepped out to walk to the office. Since the trees no longer had oranges to pick, I was given a bagful at check-in. A nice touch. Large park so there's plenty of room to walk the dog and there's good off leash area. The rate reflects an extra discount for paying cash, and I will definitely stay here whenever I'm in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had heard a lot about this park and it did not disappoint. Longer wide spaces which can easily accommodate a larger rig. Good cable and excellent Wi-Fi. There was even a bag of oranges upon registration. There was some leveling to be done because there are no concrete pads, but certainly an excellent choice in Bakersfield. We would recommend reservations as it fills up most nights We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A great find in a park near the freeway. Location was far enough from the road and the railroad to be decently quiet. Friendly staff and clean restrooms. Large showers with long benches to make dressing easy. Free donuts and coffee in the office in the morning. Lodge building for day and evening TV viewing or relaxing. Tiny but well-stocked store area. Two computers with printer for guest use. Wifi in park worked well. Did not try TV hookup or water. Shaded swimming pool. Large gravel sites with some shade trees. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Arrived without reservation to find fully booked for all but overflow sites which had water and power only. Perfectly adequate for one nights stay. Staff very friendly and helpful. Have stayed here before and regular sites are good and not too cramped. The free bag of oranges was very welcome after a days traveling. Would return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great overnight stop or as an extended stay as I use it, have family in the area. I was close to the office but my Wi-Fi worked fantastic, I would be on the 5 or 6 hours at a time and no issues at all. Laundry room was spotless and had front load machines, thirty five minutes to wash and less then forty five minutes to dry. Also really enjoy have a nice picnic table to sit at. I had planned on staying a week but unexpectedly had to stay two and a half weeks, but it was on a daily basis because I didn't know how long I would be there. The office staff bent over backwards to arrange things so I wouldn't have to change spaces. My hat goes off to the manager and the entire staff that work in the office. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice park. All sites are pull through, long and wide. Each site has orange trees and the perimeter of the park is an orange grove. You can pick all you want. Park fills up every day about 3:00pm and empties out the next morning. Popular for travelers going east and west. VERY quiet. No harsh overhead lights. Drawback, no grass. Sites are dirt and gravel, level. Roads are very wide and paved, very easy in and out. Laundry room very clean. Nice fruit/nut shop within walking distance. Office staff very friendly. Free donuts and coffee every morning at 7:00. Beautiful lounge area for watching TV or movies. We camped here in a Motorhome.
What a surprise! Some have told us: "it's just a CG in the middle of an orange grove." Well one could say that and they are right. Very nice place with orange trees at every site, and the oranges are juicy and delicious. We were planning on staying 2 nights but liked this park and area so much we stayed for 5. Amenities include spotlessly clean restroom and shower facilities, large laundry rooms, fully equipped gym, outdoor pool, entertainment and billiards room, and free Wi-Fi site-wide. They have whatever you want and need in an RV park and resort, as well as beautiful grounds. A 40-acre orchard in Bakersfield where you can park your rig between row after row of beautiful orange trees. Pull through spaces are 65' and 90' long plus extra wide, which makes coming and going a breeze. Pull right in, pick an orange and enjoy. Evidently others know about this 'just an orange grove' as the snowbirds heading North were making this a 'stop' in their journey home. We will return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Railroad tracks and trains are just across the freeway. We know this and requested a spot at the south side of the park, preferably on the end, via email reservation. When we arrived we had been given a slot on the north side of the park, in middle of the row where the nightly trains are quite loud. Showers and dressing areas look like they have not been cleaned in quite some time. One shower head is so encrusted with calcium, the water sprays everywhere but down. The other shower, has powder all over the place so dangerous to use. No shower curtains so dry clothes and towels get splashed with water regardless of the shower head condition. If you shower in your rig, this may not matter to you. I have long hair and prefer to wash it in a standard shower. This is the noisiest park we stay at on our 2500 mile trip due to the "trains" which very much enjoy "running all night" (every night), and playing loud horns as they pass by the railroad crossing about 1/4 mile away. The noise travels. Ear plugs help with our sleep, and I would not stay here without them. This park is no longer a park of choice for us. We no longer recommend this park as we once did. We camped here in a Motorhome.
the rate reflects Good Sam discount. This is a good, solid RV campground. Hookups are good. Sites are clean. Good, clean laundry. It is outside of the main Bakersfield area, which is good with us as it is on the way toward Tehachapi pass going toward Death Valley. It is just off of the freeway and easy to find and access. It is a busy park but they handle it well and it is quite at night except for some freeway noise. Our Verizon phone and data worked well. They do have WiFi but it is on and off at times. It was fast at times and very, very slow at other times. We have stayed here a couple of times. The first time we stayed in the area without sewer hookups and there were fewer people. This past time we stayed in the full hookup area. It was much more crowded. The next time we will stay in the water/electric sites. We will stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very friendly, very large sites. Nice relaxing atmosphere. Amazing club house facilities. The most interesting I have found. Excellent park for group functions. Only thing missing missing is a hot tub, but the oranges and free coffee and donuts help make up for it. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Wonderful park with lots of trees. Friendly staff and super easy after-hours check in. Very clean. Showers are very weak and shower heads very corroded. Didn't seem to be any heat in shower area. Main drawback is train noise. Easy to find, even after dark. We loved picking oranges in the morning. Picking devices can be checked out in front of office and plastic bags are provided for the oranges. Lobby has free coffee and doughnuts in the morning. I watched in amazement as one older woman walked out balancing four cups of coffee. Her spouse followed with four HUGE pastries. We will be back! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is immaculate. The only reason I did not give it a 10 is while Hwy. 58 is not visible, oddly enough you can hear the highway traffic noise from the park. Also as nice as the orange trees are, they are, by nature, not a canopy tree, so they don't add much shade. However, sites, restrooms, showers were so clean, and park was quiet with lots of retired folks, snow birds passing through. Only amenities nearby are the ones offered by the park. This is out in the orchards, but not far from town. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our first time here, but we'll be back. The nicest people and a really clean park. Rates are reasonable and discounts for cash and the usual ones. The place is really big, but you're not crowded, and we had lots of oranges in Feb. The lodge is the best I've seen anywhere plus free coffee and donuts in the am. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great park, with nice people. The sites are gravel, but level and if it doesn't rain, the are fine. Best of all are the oranges they let you pick! We would stay here again for a longer period of time. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a really nice park. Good WiFi open easy to park spaces and Oranges. Loads of Orange trees and they provide the pickers to get them off the tree. What a wonderful treat. A bit of highway noise but not bad. About 3pm everyday the park fills up and empties the next morning. We stayed for 3 days and enjoyed everyday. Would definitely stay here again We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We like this park. The spaces are gravel and reasonably level. Each site has orange trees and, in season, fruit can be picked. The staff is wonderful and helpful. We prefer this park to any of the "newer" ones that are in the area and will continue to stay when we are near Bakersfield. It is really an overnight stop but we found it relaxing to stay a few days and enjoy the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We love this park and stay here when we can on our journeys through. Its farther away from the train noises than others. The orange trees are a novelty - you can pick the Valencias Jan - March. Sites are level but dirt, which is ok. Great tv, wifi is very good. I haven't been into the Lodge area but the office/cafe is bustling in the morning with free coffee and the biggest doughnuts I've ever seen. The restrooms are VERY clean! Great park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice park. A little wider than most. As stated, orange trees right outside each door. We were here in January and picked and ate all we could. They even offer picking poles to get the higher fruit. Restrooms are cleaner than clean. The clubhouse is probably the nicest I've seen even though we don't really use them. Free coffee and doughnuts each morning but that might not always be the case. We stayed 3 nights and will make this a stop on our way north and south. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The basis of this review is the belief that a score of 10 is equivalent to a hotel raring of 5-6 star hotel. We arrived late and found the after hours check in easy. We were surprised by the orange trees and were met by the citrus aroma and fruit hanging on the branches in the morning. The park is clean and it easy to maneuver throughout the park. The opportunity to harvest a bag of fresh oranges was a delight. The sites are pull through and traffic noise is heard throughout the park. We stayed one night. We will stay here again, given it is harvest season. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Staff was very friendly until the manager went on vacation. The replacement they had would not leave the office to enforce park rules. I work nights and was planning on staying for a longer period but left after one month when a cleaning service ran a generator outside my rig for several hours to run their pressure washers. The temporary manager would not ask them to turn it off. All parks I have ever stayed at do not allow generators to be used in the park. The spaces were what I think was crushed granite or some other kind of stone which you could not keep from tracking into the trailer. Overall the park was nice with an unbelievable amount of orange trees with great fruit. We had 4 around our space alone. Overall I think the park is great and very pet and kid friendly. Wi-Fi was acceptable but nothing to brag about. I would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is the third time we've stayed here. The park is consistently clean, office staff friendly and helpful. They let us pick the oranges which were fantastic. They offered a discount ($3 I think) for paying cash. Price reflects Good Sam discount, paid for by credit card. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great park. Orange trees with plenty of fruit for picking. Good free WiFi. Level sites. Quiet location. Park is dark at night as there are no lights on sites. Easy on/off from CA58. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed there two nights. Very friendly staff and the park was very clean also. Restrooms and showers were also in good shape and well keep up. The other great thing about it is the easy of getting off and on the freeway. If you stay, check out the ‘Lodge’. It is something! There was some train noise at night but not enough to wake you once asleep. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Park is located in a functioning orange grove with a rural friendly country ambiance. There are orange trees between each site. The spaces are roomy. When the oranges are ripe you are allowed to sample them. Cable and Wi-Fi worked very well. Pool was not heated. It was easy to maneuver our 38' trailer in the park and access to the park is easy. There are train tracks half mile away which adds to country atmosphere. Everyone in Bakersfield can hear the train. We had a great time here, but grade on the curve. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed a week. This is well kept park with friendly staff. Cable and Wi-Fi good. Huge rig friendly, free coffee and donuts for breakfast, Oranges were just ready. Rig washing area. Laundry and Gym. We would have given a 10 except sites are gravel and train noise although distant can be irritating. We would definitely stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great place to overnight. Large level gravel pull through sites. Very clean bathrooms. The office staff was very friendly. Wi-Fi is very good and AT&T signal was very good. No restaurants within walking distance but several one exit away (about 3 miles). It was cool staying in an orange grove but the oranges will not be ripe until the end of December. We will stay here again when we travel through. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A very nice RV park in an orange grove and you can pick the oranges at certain times of the year. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We stay here every time we head south for the winter and return home in April. They have a new ISP so the Wi-Fi works well all over the park and is free. This year we stayed 2 nights. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
One of the nicest RV parks we've stayed in. The restrooms are very modern and clean. Pool was clean and nice, they have a beautiful rec. room, very nice staff. A kind of different experience, your actually in a real orange grove. it's pretty cool. The Wi-Fi really works great everywhere in the park, they have Wi-Fi boosters all over the park so no matter which site your in you get a good signal. Cable TV was very nice as well. We will stay here as often as we are through this area and will recommend to all our friends. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Big, long pull-throughs in an orange grove. Restrooms/showers were very clean. The staff was really helpful, with directions to local shopping, etc. They also have meeting rooms and clubhouse that were very homey. You can also pick oranges right next to your RV in season. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Easy access just off route 58. Lots of room to move your RV inside the park. Clean and well maintained with orange trees all over the park. It's very nice. Sites are level and the orange trees provide shade for sitting but not for your RV. Lots of room to walk around. There was some noise from the trains going by on the opposite side of the highway but it did not bother us. There is a small store off-site just around the corner from the main park entrance, about a quarter of a mile walk, which offers taste samples of 150 assorted nuts, chocolate covered nuts and fruit, fresh and dried fruits, jams and candies. Well worth the visit. We stayed one night and would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects cash and Good Sam discount. This is a favorite overnight location when heading over the Tehachapis, very convenient to highway 58. The place is clean and well run, and in the winter you can pick your own oranges. Note the offramp is Exit 119 Edison Rd. Even in the off season the place can get busy towards sundown. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an excellent park that is convenient, well maintained and groomed, and has friendly, competent, and accommodating employees. The dog walking areas and fenced dog run are outstanding. At night, it is quiet, and subdued lights make it pleasantly dark and peaceful. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This must be the best marked RV site ever. It is very easy to find, very easy to register and very easy to get your site and hook up. Very attractive with all the orange trees, which provide some shade from the Bakersfield heat. The staff is friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the pool early and late: cooling off from the savage heat 105F. There is easy access to numerous places to eat and fill up with gas. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We only stayed here 1 night and we pulled in late and left early the next morning. This park is great because you are actually parked right in the middle of an orange grove and you can smell the oranges right outside your RV. I have driven by this place and always wanted to stay here, so we made it a resting point for our trip. I would definitely come back and stay again! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Lovely park in an orange grove. Sites had sufficient room, not to close to neighbors. All utilities worked well including Wi-Fi and cable and the staff was very pleasant. We'll be happy to return here. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Beautiful orange grove campground with small trees at each site. Gravel, level sights with friendly check in lady. Pleasant surprise as we were just passing by and found this campground. Walmart approx 25 min. Fenced in dog area in the orange grove with shade! Immaculate restrooms. Would definitely stay here again! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very clean park, excellent staff, sites were level gravel/dirt, with picnic table. Cable TV and Wi-Fi worked great. Showers/restrooms looked new. Swimming pool, exercise room, relaxing lodge room. Quiet at night, occasional distant train. This park just became our first choice for any Bakersfield stops. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is truly a great park. We have stayed here 4 times in the last 2 years and have never been disappointed. Grounds are always immaculate. Around 80 channels on the cable and free wi-fi that has always worked great. In the past year they put new tables at every site, a real nice plus. The only negative is some of the sites could use some side to side leveling. I certainly would recommend this park to anyone. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nightly rate based upon week's stay. This places WANTS to be reviewed, so you know they are out to impress. And they do. The entire campground and its amenities are immaculate. Within 2 weeks, just enhanced WiFi system. It is 10 minutes from town, so definitely has a country feel to it. Numerous mobile resources nearby in the event of an issue, at least 3-4 RV service providers listed in directory. Simply can't find anything wrong with this place. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We made a booking and arrived after the office had shut. Our booking was posted clearly and gave us clear instructions on where to park. Clean area surrounded by orange trees, which were in blossom, a great smell. We were close to the amenities; they were clean and warm. Cheap to do laundry $1 per load. In the morning we got a bag of the most delicious tasting oranges. We only stayed one night as we were on route to Sequoia. Would highly recommend. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Well, we're back here again and got our bag of free oranges. In fact as we stayed here twice on our trip this time, we got a bag both times. The sites are great. The office folks are great and check-in is easy, especially if you've been here before. We'll be back. The nutshop around the corner is great, the trees were in bloom and it smelled awesome. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Pleasant surprise, office staff were very nice, the place was clean and well organized with adequate space between sites. Washrooms were large and very clean, as was the laundry. Main roadways were paved but the sites were gravel and may be a bit muddy in the rain. Would give it a 10 if the sites were paved. This was our fist time here, and we will stay again, and tell our friends to visit! The free bag of delicious oranges was a real treat. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful Park. We've been here in the fall (the oranges are hanging on the trees) and again this spring when the trees are in bloom. It smells wonderful. Very clean and tidy. Staff very helpful and friendly. Would come again when in area! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for 2 nites. Park is clean and the sweet smell of the orange blossoms. Our price with GS plus they take $2.00 additional off if you pay by check or cash. You usually get a bag of oranges to. Easy on/off hwy 40. Verizon and MiFi work good. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We were in a large pull through site that consisted of gravel. There are orange trees dividing spaces. There was a picnic table at the site. Roads are paved and the sites all have easy access. Despite the fact that it rained all night, the park drained well. WI-FI was free and slow. Very nice park. I would return if passing through Bakersfield. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is one of the cleanest RV parks we have stayed in. This is our third time and we really like that they have such nice, clean restrooms. The power and water pressure are consistent. If you stay here, make a point to get a doughnut and coffee in the morning or afternoon. While you are at the office go into what they call the lodge room. My wife and I were amazed at how nice it is. Big rock fireplace, nice wood through-out. Plush chairs and couches and a pool table in the loft. A great place to go and relax. The staff can't be more helpful. We also walked to the Fruit exchange. (1/4 mile) Try all the dates, trail mix, get a date shake, oranges you want and then buy something. Heck, even send a postcard home, we did. We actually stayed two nights going to and coming from Palm Springs. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very clean park with a very friendly staff. We arrived after hours and I filled out paperwork and put it in an envelope in drop box along with $34.00 cash which I had figured to be the charge. The next day when I checked out the lady said she would get me a receipt which she printed and handed to me along with $6.00 refund which she advised I had over paid. So along with being very friendly they are honest. Good coffee and donuts were offered at morning checkout. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great RV park for your Bakersfield stay. Roads are paved so the dust is kept down. RV sites are gravel/dirt. The sites are long and wide enough. The restrooms and laundry are clean and well stocked. The people are very friendly. You get really good fresh daily donuts. Not grocery store donuts, but fresh from a bakery. Best continental breakfast donuts EVER. They also provide orange picking sticks for picking the oranges out of their trees. If the trees are picked clean, there is a packing house within walking distance of the RV park to get your fresh oranges. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very Friendly. Quiet. Easy Access. Exceptionally clean facilities. Excellent value. Dog Park. Pick your own oranges for free. Level Sites. Will definitely stay here again and recommend it to all! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a very nice RV Park. Orange trees are ready to be picked this time of year. Sites are spacious and level. It is not too far from major shopping - about 6 miles. Near the highway and train tracks, but you can't escape the trains in this town. Bathrooms are very clean. My only complaint, and one of my requirements, is reliable Wi-Fi. This park does not have it. They know it, and are suppose to be working on it, but I haven't seen much progress.. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We found this to be an excellent park for an overnight stopover with easy in and out. The sites are in the middle of an Orange grove and we were invited to pick any Oranges we wanted. Very nice laundry facilities, good dog walking areas around the perimeter among the Orange trees and a fenced off-leash area that was not huge but larger than many we found and it had been kept clean as well. We have already returned once and would definitely stop here again if in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice clean, well kept RV park in an orange grove. You are able to pick fresh oranges to eat, what a nice treat for anyone who stay at this park. Distant train noise at all hours of the night. During our one week stay we had no Wi-Fi access. The staff were very friendly and accommodating let us use guest computers for internet access. This is on our list for returning when we travel through again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Staff was really friendly. Well maintained park. Roads are paved and the sites are gravel and level. We got to pick oranges for personal use from the trees you park between. Will definitely stay here again. Price is cash price. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Showers and Restrooms VERY clean. Staff friendly. Parks needs more lighting around restroom/shower facilities outside. I ran into a water hose bib area on the wall of the rest room facility. We couldn't see where the sidewalk was on the way to the restrooms. Showers in both men and womens rooms gave us lukewarm water after about 5 minutes at 4:30 in the morning so we couldn't have drained it at that time. Oranges were at the end of the picking but we got enough for delicious fresh squeezed juice. Sites were level. Great cable and Wi-Fi. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was the first time we had stopped at this park. We were happy we did, it is a nice park, not fancy but friendly and camping among the orange trees was a nice setting to us. It is out in the country and we enjoyed the lack of city traffic to get places. The sites are gravel but level, the space between is average not real close. We would stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Of all the campgrounds we have stayed in since aquiring our motorhome two years ago, this is our favorite. The staff is delightful, the sites are level and separated by orange trees, and the oranges we picked, delicious. Bakersfield is simply a stopover for us when we are heading further south, but we would go out of our way to stay here again. The restrooms and showers are immaculate. WiFi and choice of TV stations are both excellant. Our only criticism is that the washing machines and dryers need cleaning as they reek from fabric softener. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice park; out of town a bit, which is nice. It is a little noisy from the street and train, but it didn't bother us too much at night. The people in the office were great and gave us information about the area. The showers were very nice, the only thing is that you only have cold water at the sinks so if you need to shave, this is an issue. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a clean RV park with large pull through sites. It is exceptionally clean. The staff is very friendly. The sites are clean, level gravel. The fact that you can pick as many oranges as you want is a bonus. We will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great park with large sites, excellent hook-ups and great amenities. Large registration area with great staff. All the facilities are top notch and it is wonderful to be able to get up in the morning and pick a fresh orange (the best I've ever had). We have been here twice now and will make it a regular stop on our east west travels. It is also close to the Crystal Palace and the Wool Growers Basque restaurant, both worth a visit. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a beautiful park with large pull throughs, big enough for even the biggest big rig. We love this place and return year after year. It is set in the an orange grove and sometimes you can even pick your own oranges. It has easy access to Hwy 58 so easy on/off. I didn't give it a 10 because their Wi-Fi was weak where we were located and the sites are just gravel. Price reflects Good Sam discount, but using a credit card. If we had paid in cash/check, it would have been $2 less. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Excellent. We have used this park in the past - but it was our second or third choice in the area because there was not an enclosed dog run. We were very pleased to find they had added an off-leash dog area with no blanket breed restrictions (just have good control over your well-mannered pet, folks). This now makes it number one in our book! Friendly staff, large sites, good Wi-Fi, easy late-night check-in. Trees are busting with delicious oranges - nice touch. Some road noise and distant trains at night - but not a bother. Quick access to Hwy 58. We stayed here twice - once going and once returning from a recent trip to the Southwest. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Absolutely beautiful campground. Well laid out with very large spaces. Very courteous staff. Wi-Fi and cable worked great. Will definitely stay again when in the area. Very convenient to CA 58. Shopping not too far. Wal-Mart about 8 miles. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have stayed here before when traveling through Bakersfield and love parking next to the orange trees. Nice wide roads and sites are long enough so that you do not have to disconnect the toad. Clean showers and toilets. No road noise from the highway, but some trucks travel the road next to the park until 8 or 9 pm. There is noise from the train a few times during the night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped here as part of an FMCA Chapter Rally. The park was clean and very well kept. Little or no noise at night. The staff was very friendly and attentive to our needs. Free coffee and donuts every morning. One of our members had recent knee surgery and the manager provided a golf cart so she could travel from her site to the meeting area. Highly recommend this park. A pleasant place to stay with pleasant people managing it.. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stay here every year on our way to Arizona. It's a very nice park and well maintained. The office personnel were very friendly. Free coffee and donuts every morning. Good satellite reception and Verizon cell phone coverage. Each site has orange trees that are usually full of oranges. Full hook-ups, gravel pull through sites. Would have given it a 10 if there were a concrete patio and picnic table. Two laundry facilities. Will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice friendly park. We've stayed here 4 times now on our way to and from CA. Restrooms and showers have always been clean each time. A big plus, is when you stop in during Orange Season, they let you pick as many oranges as you like near your space. We will be stopping here again on our way home for the holidays, and take home oranges: fresh orange juice. We recommend this park to everyone. I don't think you will be disappointed. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Wonderful park. We have stayed here in the past for a couple of nights at the most. This year we stayed a full week and explored the area. A new off leash pet area was opened and finishing touches will make it a gem for pet owners. Usually they don't have morning donuts until November, but everyone was asking about them so they started early. This is typical of how accommodating the staff is to requests. Nice exercise room and spotless restrooms and showers. Wi-Fi is strong and fast. Only complaint was the oranges weren't ripe yet and the pool was too cold. Oh well. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Price includes senior and cash discounts. Sites are gravel, each with an orange tree or two. Not a lot of shade, but some, which is helpful in the heat. Excellent cable TV and Wi-Fi. Would love to be here when the oranges are ripe. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very clean facilities, lovely pool. Nice spacing between sites and not much road noise. Would rate higher except some kind of park road construction going on woke us up at 7AM and it looked like it was a big project that would cause noise all day long. So, in sum, a good overnight spot. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We loved this place, nice and quiet. Extended our stay. Orange trees everywhere (though not ripe yet). Desk clerk gave my wife a bag of the largest grapes I've ever seen. The pool was wonderful. Clean and a bit cool. We saw some of the other RV parks in the area, there's no comparison. The others were just "junky" looking. We will definitely make this a return to park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here while my husband worked in the area. You get a different perspective when staying longer than a night or two. The restrooms, laundry, pool and public areas are spotless. Pristine cleanliness. The sites are large, and maybe during harvest season the orange trees mean more. They offer no shade in summer. The dust is pretty bad due to gravel sites. I think grass at the sites would make this a an absolute 10. Full timers and monthlys are kept separate from vacationers, which is smart. It was annoying that the office was closed everyday from 11-2 (one day 10:30), and then closes at 4. But the cleanliness and size make it worth it. The prices of the items in the store were very fairly priced, something you don't see very often. The fruit stand around the corner was so friendly and they gave us something free everytime we went in! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is one of the nicest parks in which we've stayed. The facilities are excellent with paved interior roads, top-notch hook-ups, great recreational facilities, free Wi-Fi, and nice management. Each site is large and long and situated between orange trees. This is a campground in an active orange orchard which was carved out of the grove. I can't say enough about this park. The only negative I can come up with is that they do not provide picnic tables. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great place with friendly staff and easy access. Big new and clean showers and bathrooms. Paved roads with flat gravel pads, with orange trees! Nice pool, and a barn for group events. No problems with our 50 pound terrier. We stayed here twice this year and will definitely come back again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is as near to perfect a park as we've seen. Friendly staff, all the amenities you'd expect and each site surrounded by producing orange trees. In season you may pick them. We stay here every time we travel from GA to CA or back again. We camped here in a Motorhome.

We traveled from May to August 2011 going over 5,000 miles. Orange Grove RV park was by all means the best RV park we stayed in during our travels. We stayed 7 days while visiting relatives in central California area around Bakersfield. We did stay at a great number of parks during this last summer but this one was by far the cleanest and most organized. Very large pull through sites with some shade from Orange trees. Very quite and peaceful at night. Very helpful and friendly staff. Nice clean pool. Very impressive lodge and a barn used for groups that is decorated inside and out in an old town look. They were very dog friendly and do not charge extra for pets. There is a clean little country store that had the essentials at reasonable price's. Would highly recommend this RV park. Loved it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very charming campground with orange trees on the sites. Easily accessible from the Hwy. Friendly and helpful staff. Very clean and large sites with easy access. Small store on the campground but a wide variety of local shops in the vicinity. We had a great stay and made beautiful photos on the campground. Wi-Fi good connection and good speed. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park with good staff. A great stop while traveling north/south via hwy 99 or cross hwy 58 to east/west. It was 95 degree plus and the pool was great. We will stay here again when in the area. Sites are a little close; this being the low season, everyone was placed at least 3 sites apart. We camped here in a Motorhome.
They maintain this park it top notch condition. Have been here many times over the years and have never been disapointed. Great for big rigs with wide streets and wide sites. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an orange grove partitioned off into an RV park. Parking lot sites, but a fruit bearing orange tree at every single site. If they are ripe, you can pick them! Nice sites, not a whole lot of room width wise on the site, but a perfectly good overnight destination. Very tiny pool. There's a major orange fruit stand right around the corner for fabulous oranges if you don't get any in the park. Verizon air card and AT &T cell service fine. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Quiet RV park set amongst orange groves. Enjoyed the level, wide, long, gravel spot and the smell of orange blossoms. Didn't use the pool (no spa) or bathrooms (only there for one night). No table next to spot. Got directions from front desk to closest WalMart/stores/fast food, etc. and it took us over 30 minutes to get there with those directions, using back roads through farm fields, when we could have just got back on the freeway about a mile away, and been there in 10 minutes or less. Nice, quiet park (except for a few early AM train noise), well maintained, away from freeway and city noise. Poor Wi-Fi reception (1 bar). $2.00 discount on RV park price if you pay cash. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is out favorite park in Bakersfield. The staff is very friendly and the sites are large and big rig friendly. We really appreciate the ability to wash the rig. Will stay there the next time we are in Bakersfield. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Friendly check in. Rate reflects AAA discount. Park guests were quiet and respectful. There was train noise after we went to bed but did not notice it into the night. Points off for miserable (read-- non existent) WiFi signal once office closes, but did come up good first thing in the morning. Also, a picnic table at each site, or at least they ask guests if they'd like to have a site with a table, since tables aren't at each site. We did not have one but looked longingly at the other nice tables scattered throughout the park. Sites fairly level and gravel covered. Small orange trees separating these large sites. Although no oranges in trees at this time, the orange blossoms were heavenly to smell. Pool very cold and no spa. Playground more geared for toddlers. My 7 year old was not interested in even checking it out. A well kept facility but nothing special. I imagine when there's fresh oranges on the tree, this would be more fun. Would probably stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great sites, level and plenty of room for big rigs with multiple slides. Great staff. Very clean and modern restrooms, excellent laundry. The small workout gym was nice as well. There is a pool (though not heated) as well as a small playground area. Dogs had plenty of space to walk. The sites are well spaced, so you are not squeezed into a space and have some elbow room. It was really nice to stay in the country atmosphere yet so close to so many things to do. The grounds are well maintained. We had only intended of staying a couple of days but stayed a week. Close to what you need and places to explore-don't miss the Kern River Road Drive and the Wild Wolves Preserve. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Situated in an orange grove, the blossoms are out now and the scent is heavenly. This is a well run park with agreeable staff and large pull through sites. It is well maintained, clean and quiet. My only criticism is that the WiFi is weak. There are some hot spots, but our site is too far away for a workable signal. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is our fourth stay at Orange Grove RV Park, and we will return whenever we are in the area! Highly recommended by my parents, their attention-grabbing comment was, "Pick your own oranges!" YUM! Navel orange trees are throughout the park (hence the name), and during the season you may pick all you can personally use, they'll supply long-handled picking tools. We stopped here for two days many weeks ago while heading to Arizona (we weren't in a hurry to leave), and we're here again while on our way home to Oregon, staying 3 nights this time. We've found enough oranges still hiding in upper branches to supply us with juicy, sweet, seedless oranges to eat, or for OJ to last hopefully a few days. As for the park itself? It's clean, with nice staff and facilities, and large enough spaces for each RV. There is WiFi: a MUST for me. The orange trees are not tall enough for a lot of shade, but that wasn't a problem this time of year! There is occasional truck noise, but it's not highway noise. If you are a repeat visitor, they do offer a discount for your next stay. We had our Brittany & Cavaliers (spaniels) with us, and there is plenty of area to walk the dogs; although not having a fenced dog enclosure (in which to let the dogs run around for awhile) is the only thing keeping us from making this a "10"! I'd love to recommend that they fence in an area in one of the corners: the dog people amongst us would LOVE that! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A great park. Free, good free Wi-Fi, wide sites, orange trees between sites and very popular. This time was orange picking time and they gave us a FREE bag of ripe oranges. People are friendly. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We will always stay here on the way by - next time we will call first as it was full by the time we got there in the late afternoon. They slid us in on the side (overload) with just a 30 amp and a faucet, which is great for an overnighter. Staff always nice, oranges always tasty. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very friendly staff. Enjoyed our stay so much we stopped on the way north again 2 weeks later. We were able to pick our own oranges on the 1st stop, though they were done on the 2nd stop but were treated with a bag of oranges anyway! Laundry facilities were clean and reasonably priced. Really enjoyed this park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was one of the worst experiences we have ever had. Yes, it was convenient. However, it was so noisy: general road noise, trucks with Jake brakes and helicopters. Good grief! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The park is very obviously a one night stop. We stayed two, but the park was mostly empty the next day. The park has lots of permanent/semi permanent residents, and it irks us that the quiet time rules don't seem to apply to them. Working person across from us started a huge diesel truck both mornings at 5:15 am. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Just read the last 2 reviews and wondered if they stayed in the same park I did. I actually had to wait to file my review because of the 90 day clause. It is one of my favorite parks as we travel to and from California. Office is always friendly and efficient. Sites are all pull-throughs that are all long and level. Utilities are in good condition. You can pick oranges. Free coffee and donuts in the AM. The people who set this place up must have been an RV'er. I would love to franchise this park and place them all along the interstates. Looking forward to staying here the next time through. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is an awesome park. It is the second time staying here. We absolutely love it. We will most definitely be back. It features large, level and extremely well kept sites. This park shows pride of ownership and the staff is wonderful. The price reflects CAA/AAA discount. Easy access to park from highway with minimal traffic noise. This park is in the midst of an orange grove with trees at all the sites. In season, you are more than welcome to pick the oranges. I will recommend it to anyone and everyone. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Excellent RV park! Wide long spaces and great hook ups! Picking oranges from the trees is very nice! Very well designed park and friendly staff to boot! We have stayed here many times before and will again! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
How wonderful is it to camp in the middle of an orange grove with trees covered in ripe fruit all around each site just begging to be picked. We brought home a huge sack!! The smell is heavenly. The sites were spacious and level. It's dead quiet even though it's close to a major highway. Access to the campground was simple. The staff was great, the facilities are very complete. Hookups were well maintained and dependable. We had a good WiFi signal in the trailer. I'll definitely plan on staying here again whenever I pass through Bakersfield. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a regular overnight stop for us en route to Palm Desert. It is a very clean and friendly park surrounded by orange trees. Access is great, and sites are a good size. It's a quiet spot as well. Rate included a discount for being a returning customer. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is one of our regular overnight stops going north or south through California. I make a reservation a couple of weeks in advance and when we pull in all the check in information is complete, all I have to do is pay and we're set. The park is very clean and well maintained. The campsites are large, utilities well placed, and if you're there at the right time, free oranges off the many trees in the park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is also a ten park even w/o paved sites. The roads are all paved and the sites are level gravel and in between mature orange trees and the Oranges are really good. The check-in is easy and the sites are plenty large enough for any rig. The full-timers are neat and have pretty much their own area. Small store on-site and coffee and goodies for breakfast. We chose this one as it was closer to our route to Death Valley. Make sure to go around the corner, they should have a gate in the back fence, and check out the fruit and nut place. Good stuff and the lady there gave me a bag to pick Satsumas from their orchard and were they good. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We love this park. Usually stay on our way to and from Calif. Easy on and off highway. Sites are all large pull-throughs. Always meet some nice people. Staff is friendly and helpful. Will be stopping again on our way through. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
What could be better than staying in an orange grove with orange trees surrounding your site. Nice wide streets and sites, and toilets and showers are new and clean. About a ten minute walk to a fruit and nut store down the road, with lots of tasty treats. There is an area to wash cars or RV's if you are so inclined. Just far enough away from highway to eliminate noise, but it is a straight shot back to the highway. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is one of our favorite parks. Large spaces, easy on and off from the freeway and into the park. My price reflects a $2.00 discount for paying cash, and another 5 % discount using a coupon from a previous visit. Friendly staff. Easy check in if office is closed. Popular with snowbirds heading to Arizona. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Fee represents both a GS discount and additional discount for cash. You really are parked in an orange grove. Too bad it was early for the fruit to be ripe because the trees were full of oranges. A bit noisy because of the proximity to the highway, but not too bothersome. Very well groomed and mostly level sites with shade from the orange trees. Excellent WiFi. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park has what I'm looking for in an RV park: easy access from a major road, pull through sites, quick check-in, level sites. The Wi-Fi wasn't the fastest in the world, more like dial up, but for an overnight stay it was good. The pizza guy had no trouble finding the park and my site so that's a plus. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice RV park ideal for an overnight stay. Restrooms and showers were very clean. Has a large swimming pool and a good exercise room. has long pull-through sites. Friendly staff and there is free coffee and donuts! Would return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
How cool is it to camp in an orange grove! Smell was lovely, the facilities were well maintained, and the overall park was a joy to be in. Too bad we were just passing through for one night and that the oranges weren't ripe yet! It's a very nice park with friendly, efficient check in. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is one of the nicest and best mantained parks we stay at. Great staff, clean restrooms and laundry, adequate fitness room and large level sites. All of this and free dougnuts and coffee in the morning and fresh off the tree oranges in the winter. We go out of our way to stay here and recommend that others do also. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great spot for a stop-over. All gravel so it can be a bit dusty. Nice sites with orange trees. In season you can pick all you want (Dec-Mar) and the place is clean and the staff is friendly. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Easy access from and to Highway 58, yet we didn’t notice any highway noise. Check in staff was welcoming. Site was level, Wi-Fi was strong. A comfortable spot for a good night’s rest. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We arrived after the office closed, but the instructions were very easy to follow. Since we only stayed the night and left early the next day, all we wanted was a level spot with hookups. All these were available, and we left the next day well rested and ready for a long drive. We plan to return to this campground for a longer stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We rely on this rv park as an overnight stop when passing through Bakersfield. All gravel area means some tracking into your rig, but sites are spacious, and everything works. The WiFi is excellent. The oranges you can pick in season are excellent. There is an excellent dog walking park. It is a very satisfactory experience each time we visit. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The sweet smell of orange blossoms welcomes you to this park. Surrounded by orange groves, with sites separated by sculpted orange trees, arriving here was a welcomed sight. Park is clean, well maintained, and has all pull throughs, free Wi-Fi, phone sites, a pool, laundry, showers, and restrooms. Propane is available at $2.50/gal. There was some freeway noise, but not bad. In season, you can pick your own oranges. Check for rules and details at the office. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great for an overnight stop. Easy off/on highway 58. Lots of large, clean sites. Cable & free WiFi worked great. Some traffic noise from Edison Rd, but little from the freeway. Some train whistles, but pretty far away - didn't disturb us at night. Orange trees were in bloom - flowers and bees may be a problem this time of year for those with severe allergies. Free coffee and a doughnut at the office in the morning. Shell truck stop with cheapest diesel at the next exit to the west of the park (2 miles). We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have stayed here 3 times. We use it for one night stops on our way to other places. The park is very clean, the staff is friendly, all the spaces we have ever used were level gravel. We paid $33. for a night in cash; credit cards are a little more. We will use the campground many more times. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A large park with lots of pull through sites. Paved roads but gravel spaces, which aren't completely level. Great staff and lots of services. Very little road noise but the train runs by pretty close. Very easy on and off Hwy 58. We will stay here again on our way through. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is the park we stayed overnight on our very first RV trip. It was great then as it is now. Coffee and doughnuts at the office in the morning. Easy to find from California 58. And the oranges right from the many trees, though now mostly gone, are sweet unlike any you can buy in a store. All pull-through sites. There is free Wi-Fi and many cable TV stations. I would rate this a 10 if there was grass between the sites instead of dirt, and the site for parking the rig was of asphalt or concrete. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Yes, you can pick oranges from trees at your site! Extremely well maintained facility and hospitable management. Access roads to the sites are paved but the sites are gravel and level. Easy freeway access and exit with local restaurants and services 1 exit, approximately 2 miles, away. There is some freeway traffic noise, and there is a train somewhere nearby, but overall very quiet. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Excellent overnight stop. Check in was fast, friendly and efficient. The park is set up with all long and wide pull-throughs. Only drawback was our site had been recently graded and it rained over night making it a little muddy in the AM. We will be staying here again. Great coffee and donuts in the morning. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We are back here again; and once again the place is spotless, the staff is great and the oranges are just ending. Also, don't forget the free coffee and doughnuts in the morning. This is a great overnight and a really good place to spend a few days and visit the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Excellent park. The restrooms/showers are modern and immaculate. All facilities are clean and the staff is friendly. Coffee and donut type treats are served every morning. You are invited to pick oranges that you will use. I recommend this park and will definitely stay here again. Level lot. Museum type atmosphere with farming equipment all around the park. They provide poles to reach oranges for picking. A wonderful place! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have used this park several times and never been disappointed. The park is set in among an orange grove and if you're there at the right time you can pick delicious oranges right off the trees for your personal use. The office staff are pleasant and helpful. Free coffee and donuts are available in the office every morning. There are two computers in the office that guests can use which came in handy for us as we had a sick laptop. The Wi-Fi reception can be spotty so if that's important to you make sure to request a site with good reception. The laundry room has got to be the cleanest and best one in an RV park that I have ever used. High efficiency front loading machines make doing a load of laundry a pleasure! The park also has an area for washing cars and RVs that we appreciate very much. The train noise seemed a little louder this time to me for some reason, but that's the only negative thing I can think of. We would definitely use this park again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A great stay at a great park. This park is well maintained and a pleasure to walk around. Upon arrival, the front desk had the reservation forms of all 7 of the rigs in our group ready to sign and pay. The park has all pull through sites and is easy to park for even the biggest of RVs. Oranges are in season and free for the picking. Restrooms were clean and well maintained. Great park for a night's rest. Have stayed several times between going and coming from Arizona, Colorado and points east. Make this a stopover if you can. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Older park, but very well kept. We loved picking the oranges! It smells great here with all the ripe oranges. I really liked how the staff put RVs in every other space since the park was not full. I've noticed other parks putting RVs right next to each other even if park was not full. This place got it right! Quiet, nice staff. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our 1st stay here, Very nice for a one nighter. The restrooms/showers are super clean! Wi-Fi was a little slow, but glad they have it. Very well kept park. It close to the Hwy, but I never heard road noise. The oranges make it fun! We will stop here again We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camp here all the time on our way through. Great park, friendly staff. Discount for cash/check. The usual discounts for AAA/Good Sam. Only comment has nothing to do with the park - the trains can be heard from here (though not as bad as other parks) and the street side of the park gets truck traffic so, if you are particularly sensitive to noise - you may have to get to Tehachapi or other locations. Pet friendly - lots of places to walk dogs. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have camped at Orange Grove RV Park twice now, and I am sure we will camp there again. Very nice park, friendly staff, and free oranges in season! The only issue we have had is with the free Wi-Fi. It is certainly free, but you have to be in the sites fairly close to the antennas in order to get any reasonable signal. Otherwise, a great park. The orange trees are beautiful and add a great deal to the park's appeal. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Excellent park. Friendly. Big spaces. The best part is being able to pick a bag of oranges right off the trees, and they provide the picker! Delicious. We stop there every year on our way further south. Free park-wide Wi-Fi too which is nice. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I agree with the other reviews--this park has one of the best layouts we have ever seen, and the fresh oranges are wonderful. Very friendly and helpful staff. The only reason I did not give this park a 10 is for the fitness center. We like to use a fitness center for the weight equipment--we can get our aerobic exercise other ways. The fitness center has a all-in-one weight machine that must have been purchased at El Cheapo Mart and was virtually useless. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We pass through Bakersfield fairly often, but this was the first time we stayed at Orange Grove. We will definitely stay here from now on. We came in late Christmas eve and they had our site and paperwork ready for us. The ladies working Christmas morning were very helpful and friendly. The sites and roads are all wide and easy to get into. The site was long enough for our 34 Ft class A and the tow behind so we did not have to unhook. There are orange trees between every site and we were allowed to pick the oranges. They were fabulous! The free WI-FI and TV worked great and the bathrooms were some of the nicest we have ever seen. Everything was clean. They have a nice looking swimming pool and an exercise room, but we did not use those. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have stayed here before and we completely echo all of the other reviews. The rate is for a weekly stay (we just could not stay one night). They even provide free coffee and doughnuts every morning. We will definitely be back! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is our second overnight stay and the park remains well maintained and pristine. The showers are wonderful and the laundry facilities are more than adequate this time of year when it isn't very crowded. The best part is to be able to pick fresh wonderful oranges right off the tree outside your door. We will be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It is an awesome park. I absolutely loved it. It features large, level and extremely well kept sites. This park shows pride of ownership and the staff is wonderful. The price reflects CAA/AAA discount and if you pay cash you get an additional $2.00 off. There is easy access to park from highway with minimal traffic noise. This park is in the midst of an orange grove with trees at all the sites. In season, you are more than welcome to pick the oranges. I will most definitely be back and will recommend it to anyone & everyone. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We usually stop here when passing through the area, it is such a nice well kept RV park. All sites have orange trees which you can pick when in season. Our site was long enough for our 36 ft rig and tow, had 50 amp, free Wi-Fi and cable TV. It is a nice park to take a walk around, they have a lot of old farm equipment on display. We will continue to return to this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stopped on our way to Arizona for 2 nights and was pleasantly surprised. The park is gravel, but not at all dusty. The grounds were well kept and the office staff very friendly. The spaces were nice and wide allowing for slideouts. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have stayed here a number of times for an over-night. The sites are spacious, level and long enough for us (45') to remain hooked-up. Great ambiance of REAL orange trees: blossoms and fruit. But you can't pick the fruit. There is a fruit stand within walking distance but not much else. So, come prepared with dinner and breakfast. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This a beautiful park. There are orange trees beside each spot. We were here just at the wrong time. In January, guests are allowed to pick as many fresh oranges as they like. We had our choice of spaces. The pool is unheated and it was very cold. The outbuildings are interesting and this would make a great spot for group camping. Everything was clean and well maintained. A good visit. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We came in late and they had envelope ready for us. Wonderful park with orange trees. There is also an Orange Grove right by. Good wide spots, easy to get into, a pool, and allows certain pets. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have stayed here several times on our way through Bakersfield. It's a very well maintained park, with large, level gravel spaces and paved roadways. Easy access from Hwy 58. Friendly, helpful staff. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here going & coming from our destination & were most impressed with the sites, although gravel, very level, the cleanliness of the facilities, & helpfulness of the staff. If we didn't live in Paradise (Lake Havasu City, AZ) we would make this our winter vacation spot when the oranges are ripe. We were even given cold fresh grapes that had been picked across the road. We definitely would camp in this park when in the area again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
An unusual park in an orange grove. Very nice, well maintained. The continental breakfast was the standard coffee and donuts, but was appreciated. Easy highway access. The price was a little high, but if you camp here in season, we did not, you can pick all of the oranges you can eat for free. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed in this park for one evening's sleep and the following morning's restfulness. Orange Grove is a pristine park filled with orange trees and quiet. Everything was new, sparkling, and clean. I was surprised and impressed with the quality of the materials used in the bathrooms and showers. We camped here in a Motorhome.

We only stayed here one night as we were passing through, but it was very pleasant. The pool was a little cold for my liking, but the bath facilities were some of the nicest and cleanest I've seen in a while. One drawback was the train traffic all night, but it didn't bother my wife at all. A really nice park all around. Very clean! We camped here in a Motorhome.
I love this place. This was our second time here. The first time there were oranges on the trees in each campsite which they encouraged you to pick. They have a nice "lodge" with TV and games and serve doughnuts and coffee in the mornings. Staff is friendly and helpful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park within an actual orange grove. Sites are somewhat close together. The park is very clean and well kept. The bathrooms were the cleanest that I have ever seen in an RV Park. Swimming pool was freezing cold but has just opened two days before for the season. The store was very minimal. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a very nice good-size park with very nice workers. The park is well kept up. The sites are very long and plenty wide. Each site has an orange tree. The oranges were out of season, but there were very fragrant blossoms on the trees. The streets in the park are easy to maneuver for big rigs. There is also an area where you can wash your RV and it includes the hose. The Wi-Fi was free and worked well. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We always stay here if going South or returning North. Friendly, helpful staff. Other than occasional traffic noise, quiet and relaxed atmosphere. Excellent laundry facilities. Clean, well maintained park, yet thankfully isn't the usual expanse of concrete and asphalt. Pet friendly, offers a large area for dogs to do their thing with necessary garbage cans and pick up tools. Better yet, always carry your own doggy bag. Will certainly stay here again.
