The Club Royal Oak RV Park, is well laid out with paved roads and concrete patios. We called a few hours ahead of our arrival and spoke with very friendly office staff who just took our name and said she would look for our arrival which was going to be about 4:30 PM. She had our registration papers ready and gave us a nice pull through site. This is a quiet park on the Kings River, but about three miles from the US 99 freeway and the RR. All utilities were good. We did not visit the other amenities and cannot comment on them, The site was plenty roomy and had a picnic table. Of note,the park office window displays an FMCA commercial member sign, but did not permit us the 10% FMCA member discount as published in the Jan. 2014 magazine. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a great place for us. It is in the charming area of Kingsburg. Out amongst the trees and vines. We had a river site. Grassy and we had a pull in site so we viewed the river from our MH windows. The space was huge! River front has no sewer but who cares. This was only an overnight for us but I can see how locals or others would do more than one night. We were lucky enough to have great neighbors who actually lived 10 min away but came often. They had us over for dinner. Such fun. Biggest down side! Must check in by 4pm. Gates close and no one gets in after that. As an RVer I am used to coming in with a reservation or finding open sites, whenever I arrive. I think this issue will keep people from visiting. I will be back if I'm in the area. Safe, comfortable and clean. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed for a month, had to pay in advance (my fault) won't do that again. Way over priced for the place and site, very narrow pull through. They had some nice wide sites but for some reason, not available when my reservation was made. Management very unfriendly. Some staff friendly. A large part of the park was not in use. Storage area right next to sites making views undesirable. Laundry sub standard. River is a joke, obviously little water for a long time, NO way to launch a boat, gas dock out of water! One bright spot, lots of birds, place is in middle of orchards. Would NOT stay there again even if free. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice park. Would stay here again. The only downsides are the road in is rough and the sites are grass. They needed to rake and clean up the sites the grass and leaves were dragged into the motorhome. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here one night on our way home from a vacation. We had planned to stay two nights, but left after one. However, it was not due to the park; it was a family situation. Because we stayed here in the winter, during the very slow season, it was hard to imagine what it might be like at full swing in the summer. However, the space was surprisingly level, the wi-fi excellent (even though we had to pay an extra $3.00 per day for it). Because it was the slow season, the office was not open for two days a week, making reservations a bit tricky. However, when we saw how slow it was, it was hard to hold that against the park. No cable, which was a downside. However, we were able to get several stations using the antenna. It is a pretty spot ,and we might consider revisiting it again, especially during the busy season. It was quiet and off the freeway which was an improvement over other parks in the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great place to spend time with family! Friendly and helpful staff. Close to town but right in the middle of nature. River Front, quite, nice bath houses, what more could you ask for? Simply a wonderful stay. I highly recommend staying at this park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Park is way too expensive: $60 for pull through site and $40 for back in. We opted for the back in (our rate was AAA). The back in sites turned out to be very narrow and filled with older units that seemed to be parked permanently. Not a very comfortable area. We walked around the other sites and they seemed to be quite nice and spacious. Still too expensive. Just beware of the back in sites. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice resort. Our site had river access, our own private beach. This is the place to be if you are into water activities: boating, jet ski, etc. The staff was friendly and helpful. Restrooms and showers were clean. The only problem was that there is no check in before 3:00 PM. The reason for this, is that they want to water the grass in the sites before the new occupant arrives. There are discounts for the military and police. We camped here in a Motorhome.
There was lots of distance between camps. The trees were mature and the river provided beautiful scenery. The park was very secure with the gate. The staff was extremely accommodating. It would have been nice to have sewer hookups. The women's shower wasn't the cleanest and we were unable to get warm water. One of the women's restrooms was also closed. We enjoyed our stay there and would return. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Stayed here one night-passing through. This park is different, more a camping on the grass style park. You have to travel through town to get here, narrow streets; then through an orchard. If for a one night stop, out of the way from Freeway. Has fire rings and the grounds are mostly grass, but peaceful when we were here. The river had filled, but got the impression it isn't all the time. There is a golf course next door, but didn't have time to play. Nice staff. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We travel all over Central and Northern California for work. And we stayed here, assuming we would only be here a week, but our stay was extended to several weeks. All the staff is extremely nice and helpful. The place is clean. I was impressed. Each site seems to have more than enough room. We have a fairly large rig and two trucks, and we had more than enough room, and we weren't even in a "Large Pull-Through" site. They have propane on-site, which was nice. They came around most mornings to see if we needed our tanks filled. It's quiet. They have quiet time hours which is a breath of fresh-air. We will most certainly stay here again when in the area. Would recommend to anyone!!! We camped here in a Motorhome.

This park was purchased by its new owner in 2005. We have stayed here in the spring and fall avoiding the summertime when all the boats and personal craft are running up and down the river. The staff is great, and have always gone out of their way to accommodate us. We usually dry camp on the river and avoid the FHU's, our choice to have an unobstructed view of the river. There is a gun club across the river and it can sometimes be heard. If you are traveling Hyw 99 Club Royal Oak is just 3-4 miles to the east of the freeway. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This used to be a nice park when we visited in the late 1980's. It has a great location right on the Kings River with several waterfront sites and many beautiful shaded spots. The problem is there is absolutely no mantianence taking place. The facilities were dirty. Many of the electrical outlets didn't work. One restroom was completely closed which left only one (somewhat dirty) restroom for the whole park. The advertised clubhouse and store were also closed for our entire weeks stay. To cap it off the only employee we ever saw was one of the rudist people we have ever come across at a campground. Too bad, this could be a great place. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed 1 night while driving north. Friendly and helpful staff. Road is paved, site was on grass/dirt and somewhat level, long enough for 5er & truck and wide enough for slideout and awning. Hookups are very basic and working. WiFi was available, not fast and cutting out. Restrooms are there but I would not use them, look old, are old and could be way cleaner. Constant noise from I-5, not really bad but always present. It looks like there are a few longtimers in this park and it definitely could use some updates. We stayed as it was time to stop and because we couldn't find an earlier RV Park. I will not return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I lived in a cabin here for over a year and saw this "resort" literally fall apart in that time. They advertise a lake and fishing, but the lake dried up and all the fish were left to die and rot. They advertise wifi, and only a select few sites within the short antenna range can get it. They advertise ckean restrooms and showers and they are not. They advertise pool and jacuzzi, but the jacuzzi has been broken since spring of 2013. Nothing gets repaired, except for the restaurant bar, and that's a lot of fun on weekends with all the obnoxious drunks allowed to run around the park disturbing residents. There is no security, and the assessment fees we as residents pay gets us nothing but our holding tanks pumped out, and that is even hit and miss. The only thing that kept me there was the fishing, and now all that is left of that is the rotting carcases that the grounds crew refused to clean up. If I had to pull in here for an emergency, I would probably use the rest stop across the highway. Stay away and maybe the owner will clean up the park and concentrate on the resort instead of the restaurant. We camped here in a Campground Cabin.
This park is far from a "Resort." Upside, it's pretty family friendly. Playground, pool/spa, basketball court, clubhouse. Downside, it's very run down. We were to get a shady grass spot, but most of the sites are on concrete with no trees, which could be VERY HOT in our Valley Summers. Also, there are no fire pits or BBQ's. Picnic tables are very scarce and "first come, first served." There is not even one table per site, which is kind of annoying. This park was definitely WAY over priced. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We arrived after hours and found good instructions on where to park. Found a grassy pull-through. This park is close to both the freeway and the train tracks so, you have to expect that its rather noisy. The pedestal that was at our site was in disrepair. I was alarmed at the corrosion on the breaker switch. The last occupant had duct taped their sewer hose into the outlet and left the tape. We didn't dump so not critical to us. OK for overnight stop. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park needs some major clean up.for 35 bucks a night expect a lot more than a messy site, kids toys, garbage, ect. Bathrooms are scary, paid for full hook up couldn't use the sewer to dump overflowing and gross..we wouldn't stay here again or recommend it to anyone. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
What a dump. I'm sorry but pictures are so deceiving and this posting things that are not really real on rv park sites should be illegal. When we drove up we were scared. Ok maybe not that bad but enough where we only got out of the rv that evening to park and the next day to sit by the water and study. I didn't go near the restrooms. The lake is, well I guess you can call that a lake and the opposite end of it was so nasty and green I can't believe some don't get infections from bug bites. I hate being harsh but after 6 years of rv'ing I am getting so tired of making excuses for these parks. If you go here, be armed! We camped in a motorhome 36' and had just enough room to pull our slideouts out. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is overrated and crowded. All the river sites have been leased out with a trailer (cabin). We stayed on one of the few sites left on the river. The bar played loud music, booming bass, until 1AM. We couldn't get to sleep. You can also hear busy Highway 99 from the park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Agree with previous comment on this site. We paid $25 to park on uneven, non level grass. Pull through sites were in the middle of nowhere. River front sites, without electric or sewer were listed at $65 per night. Location is right next to, practically on, highway 99. Terribly noisy all day and all night. No one slept well. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This place is turning into a timeshare. It has too many things around that is noisy. Trains, HWY, and a Bar. Close to feedlot and horse ranch. Alot of flies get into you rig and the smell, uck! Spaces are really close together. Can not use your awaning in most spaces. No heat in the restrooms. Washing machines worked half the time while we were there. The high dollar spots have no electric or sewer. Rest area across the highway would be just as good to use for overnight. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The $20.00 price was based on the Passport America rate and was too much given the facilities. The sites were not level and with our slides out we were on the edge of our site on both sides. They had just topped all of their trees so there was absolutely no shade. The park has very limited amenities and was noisy due to the highway and train tracks. We would not stay there again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Right off freeway so great for one or two nights. Exit is onto the on ramp for freeway so can be risky. Grass sites, not very level. They water daily so site is always wet. Would probably not stay there again. No office, no service. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a funny little RV park. Lots of trains. $20 is too much at half the regular price. Only one bathroom! Great laundry with a hot dryer. There isn't a soul around to talk to, but that's OK too. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good location next to Freeway. Not too noisy. Good laundry facilities. Lots of grass and shade. Stayed here to visit Sequoia National Park. There is no office, it is self check in. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice little park between CA-99 and the railroad. The highway noise fades into the background and you only hear a train every once in awhile. No problem with any of the hookups; lots of channels on the antenna; easy off and on 99. Lots are a little narrow but we had an end lot so didn't feel crowded. Lots of vineyards in the area (Selma, just up the road, is the raisin capital of the world). Nice campground; nice area. We'd stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is an acceptable stopover campground if you pay the club rate of $20. Their $40 standard rate is too much. While near Hwy 99, is turns into white noise, so that's not a problem...the trains on the other side blowing their horn are. One unisex bathroom/pay shower was a disappointment, although spotless. The sites are nice green grass which was nice. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Rate shown Passport America rate. Access and park roads are old broken pavement. Overnight sites were in the middle of the park and looked to be mainly pull-throughs. Most sites occupied by permanent residents. Self registration in effect. Office said it was open limited hours, but never saw anyone. Site a grass pull-through that was surprisingly level. No cable TV or Wi-Fi. There is a small TV room with a big screen TV and good seats, but I never used it. Found many TV channels off the antenna. Strictly an overnighter and only worth it if you have a 50% off discount card. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We thought this was a pleasant park. Lots of full time residents but neat and clean. Felt fine. Parked on grass. Antenna brought in 30 television stations. Little noise from train and highway but not bad. Hard to avoid sprinkler nozzles on the way out. Self serve to come in. Washrooms were clean. Showers are 25 cents per minute. Good overnighter at a good price. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very narrow spaces but they are level and on grass. Small self-serve friendly park. Nothing more than an inexpensive place to park overnight but highway noise and train going by throughout the night can be a major disturbance for some. I would stay here again for short visits in this area. We stayed 3 days and would stay here again. (PA discount.) We camped here in a Motorhome.
This RV Park is just off highway 99 and is a Passport America Park with a $20.00 rate. There are a lot of trees so the highway noise and the train noise (there's railroad tracks on the other side of the park) is not too bad. The trees cancel out satellite reception, but they have a "TV Room" with a large screen TV for guests. The sites are nice and grassy. It's like staying in an old orchard. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park was absolutely terrible. The entire campground was flooded everyday from seasonal campers going around with sprinklers and watering everything: there was mud everywhere. The electrical hookup was very shoddy and not adequate. The manager was very rude when we experienced a problem with the electric. We will never stay here again and would not recommend it to anyone. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We camped here on Passport America and found the park a little overpriced even at that rate -- I cannot imagine that anyone would ever pay $38. It was self-register and self-park, and we never did see anyone affiliated with the campground, though the full-time residents were friendly and helpful. After choosing the roomiest site, we had to shoehorn ourselves in to position our coach so that we could open the slides and the door without hitting the tree. It was not clear where "overnighters" were supposed to park, and I'm not sure we chose a "legal" site, but it was probably the only workable one, and no one complained to us. Interior roads were very narrow, and tree limbs overhead were also a concern. The bathrooms were closed for "remodeling" (or maybe because they didn't want to have to clean them?). We would look for a different place next time. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This place is mostly live-ins. They have 6 sites that are pull through for overnighters. The sites were muddy, extremely narrow, tricky to drive through and not recommended for big rigs. We were told bigger rigs than ours made it, and that is probably true. It is Passport America, Escapees and that brings the price down to $20, $15 more than it is worth. Large shady trees. Office personnel who were not in the office, as it is self-serve and you are definitely putting them out if you need help. We were asked if we had missed the self-service sign. As it turned out we needed mobile service, never could find the same guy again, but a live-in neighbor was kind enough to give us a phone book list of who might help. There are not many good parks right in this area, but I would recommend planning ahead and staying away from here. We will not return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
