We were here when it wasn't busy so had plenty of room. Site not very level. Manager had gone home but someone else checked us in and she was very pleasant and helpful. We parked near the office and Wi-Fi worked well for us. Quiet enough and have only heard 1 train, so far. You can see Mt Shasta through the trees. Would probably stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is nothing but a gravel lot with utilities. Sites are long but VERY close together. Don’t try to make reservations because you will NEVER get a call back. That’s just rude. How can you run a business like that? When we got there the office was closed - naturally so we picked a spot. The map of the facilities is drawn on a white board and not very specific. The information provided in an outside box had a Mt. Shasta map that was unreadable, NO information on the park (like a map) and the TV listing was wrong. What a terrible way to run an business. We would not recommend this park and will not return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
My high ranking is because this is a very nice spot to be and everything works. Power, water and sewer, all good. Spot big enough for our 42' plus tow. Park is located in a pine forest. People operating the park are friendly and helpful. Rate is reasonable. This is not a big fancy deluxe park, but a nicely situated comfortable one. Quiet too. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a 55 or older campground; we qualified, so not a problem. If you do not qualify, I am not for sure if they would turn you away or not. We selected it based on the reviews on this site. We tried calling the listed number several times to see if we could get in, but no luck. There was no answer and messages were not returned. So, we took a chance and went there. There are new managers and said they had been having problems with their phone system, so the reason for the phone problems. They said they are working on a solution to the phone problem, but I am not convinced it will actually be solved. The park has no web presence; the link posted here previously was for a park in Canada? As noted, it is basically a mobile home park with a few RV sites. Most of the sites are in front and OK but not overly attractive. These have 50 amp services. There are, in theory, four sites located more into the park with only 30 amp service; however, these sites have shade and a nice view of the small pond. We elected one of these sites. Since we were the only ones there, it was great. If there were more than two RVs there, it would be crowded. The park is very nice and pleasant. It is far enough away from the interstate that there is very little noise. Most people would not notice it at all. There is some train noise at night, but in the distance, not a problem for us. It is fairly dark, which is good. Satellite is a bit of a challenge because of the trees. The park, supposedly, has Wi-Fi but we could not pick it up. Our Verizon phone and data plan worked well. We would definitely stay here again if passing through the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice overnight stop in Mt. Shasta. It is a mobile home park with some overnight RV sites. Gravel sites, good water pressure and electrical voltage. Never did see the owner or manager. You are on the honor system to leave a completed registration form and either cash or personal check in a mail slot in the office door. Quiet, permanent residents' sites were neat and clean. We wound up staying here again a week later and would do so again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Located a few miles off the 5 freeway via a pretty treed lined frontage road. Park is mainly a permanent resident's mobile home park with a majority of these being in the back area. Most of the RV sites are in the front with a few off in the trees. One pull through site, the others are pull through's depending if it's full. Long gravel sites. Verizon cell worked fine. Self check in when we we're here. Never noticed anyone in the office. Bathrooms and laundry are located in the back among the mobile homes. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Price is with Good Sam 10% discount. Nice Park, signs a bit misleading when you get up here so pay attention. Very friendly staff and clean laundry. Cost $1 to wash and $1 to dry (60 minutes). Has a lake but way to many mosquito's. Sites are big enough, full hook up. Our Motorhome had a tiny bit problem leveling: gravel was tilted some. Nice rec house. Actually a senior citizens mobile home park with some CG sites in he front of it. I personally think it is a touch CG to bring kids too. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Pull through sites are level, long, and gravel with ample room for slides. The office folks are friendly and helpful. Bathrooms, showers, and laundry room are very clean and laundry is reasonably priced. Some trees for shade that did not inhibit our roof mounted DirecTV. Their cable and Wi-Fi are excellent. Our Verizon phones and aircard didn’t work here. Quiet location with the occasional train, no I-5 noise. Nice wildlife habitat pond with walking trail around it. This is a great location for Mt Shasta, Castle Lake, Siskiyou Lake and several waterfalls. We would enjoy staying here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park was for 1 night. The sites were level for our 35' 5th wheel rig. The Wi-Fi and cable TV both work very well. The staff was very friendly. We will make sure to stay here again as it's a nice quiet park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Beautifully situated in the forest surrounding Mt. Shasta, you can just make out the mountain through the trees. The sites are not paved but we were able to choose our own as there is 'self check-in' after hours and you must have cash. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Quite a few semi permanent residents here. Up-scale family camping is not the scene. Despite rules, many unleashed dogs. Complaining to the owner made it clear that people in old trailers renting sites by the month are much preferred to vacationers. If you like trailer park ambience with lots of yelling, it will suit your needs. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We used this as an overnight stopover. This is a classic park originating from the 1930s. Management very accommodating. Given a long list of rules which was to respect neighbors & environment. Common sense list. Even though this is also a senior mobilehome park, the setting is impressive. There appeared to be a number of RVers staying for more than one night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a combo mobile home and RV park, although most of the RVs seem to be here for a long term stay. Both types of units are either fairly new or are reasonably well maintained. This park is OK, but it certainly isn't spectacular. The staff is friendly and helpful, the baths aren't squeaky clean but they are OK, but the laundry room is a "pit". However, there are beautiful trees here. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Would have given it a 10 if WiFi was available. Laundry, rest rooms and showers old but spotless. Lots of permanent residents but units are very well kept. Pull through sites paved with grass and a small shade tree. Back-ins are in a pine tree shaded area, like camping in a forest. Short distance from Interstate 5, some traffic noise and an occasional train in the distance. Owners very friendly and helpful. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Upon check-in was a long line of folks. Lots of new people at the front desk. Got me my assigned site and I drove here with tow and the sites were so close and trees so low that i would have torn my 45' rig up even without the tow. Went back and was assigned another spot at the lake which was very tight between two trailers and their tow vehicles. It was about 3 feet too long. I asked for one of the other sites and got it; it fits but not level. Hookups are satisfactory. Lots of dust - kids enjoying themselves. Nobody enforces the quiet time with the kids - so we just put our a/c on and let the white noise drown it out. We didn't use restrooms nor laundry. Already planned exit and used a tree trimmer to trim down a low branch about 10' off the ground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
If you drive a big rig and get here the first time you'll wonder if you made a mistake coming here. But then, there is enough room, you check in, and head to your site. Again, you wonder if you made a mistake. But then you notice that you actually have plenty of room and park your rig. Then you notice it has 50 amp. Then you notice it also has cable (you won't get satellite), and water, and sewer. Then take a walk around and see the beautiful lake, Mt Shasta looming overhead, and you'll appreciate being here. We will come back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were told this was a former state park that was transformed into a privately run campground. The site spacing certainly feels more like a state park instead of a typical commercial campground. We stopped here over Memorial Day weekend so the park was pretty full, lots of noise from kids having fun, but with all the space it wasn't a big deal. Our cell phone / Verizon data worked well here. Beautiful park with lots of trees. Our only concern was the need to be very careful when maneuvering our 38 ft 5th wheel, just due to the trees, extra care was needed in just driving through the campground loop. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very spacious campgrounds nestled in the pine trees. We have a 40' fifth wheel which took extra time to back in to our site because of the dense trees, but well worth the effort. Very quiet, very clean, and with full hookups while feeling like boondocking. We were there at the end of season so the park was not even close to full. This park is more like a state park than a private RV park. Would love to stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We arrived the week after Labor Day, so the grounds were in need of a good cleaning. Also the bathrooms were pretty horrendous, and I refused to enter the showers at all. If you have your own shower, I'd say that this place would have been great. The cabins were really pretty too. This place looks like it probably is a mad-house during the summer with all the water slides and stuff in the lake, but we were able to use them just before they pulled it all out of the water, with no crowds. It was nice and peaceful here the week after Labor Day, so I think off-season it's really nice and pleasant. Just keep in mind that you probably won't get to use the slides and stuff if you go after Labor Day, as they immediately pulled it out afterwards. Also, the restaurant is closed after Labor Day. Very nice views of Mount Shasta, and the town is cute too. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We loved it! It's very rustic and like true camping, but with nicer amenities. Tall trees give it a woodsy feel, you can cook over a campfire. They have an outdoor theater to watch movies on Saturday night, an on site restaurant, fishing, clean bathrooms, and are very dog friendly. The best part was the beach, though! They have an inflatable rock wall, see saw, and other climbing things out in the water. You swim out, climb on them, then fall off into the water. And the surrounding scenery is gorgeous! Great price too. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped in the sites closer to the lake. I though the road was large enough, but some of the sites are angled the wrong way for the direction of the road. Not too bad though. I went to the wrong loop (non-lakeside) initially and that one was very, very tight to fit through. Did I mention that it was super tight? That might be what the previous reviewer was referring to. I'm not sure why it says they don't have 50 AMP. Ours did. In fact, the 30 AMP was cracked with exposed copper. Not wanting to die, I used an adapter to use the 50 AMP which was in a little better shape. This place is pretty neat because its under large pine trees and feels a little rustic, but many sites have full hookups and cable. Wi-Fi is available for a fee, so I just used our Verizon 3G which had good reception. The beach is nearby for swimming and a great view of Mt. Shasta. There is a small general store and a basic grill/restaurant, with a limited bar. Its a good price for the location and amenities. We will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a beautiful setting, but it is difficult to get a big rig in because the sites have a lot of big trees and the road is very narrow. We did manage to get our 36' overall length Fifth Wheel in with a lot of juggling and tries. The sites are not level. We had to use several blocks on one side. Then the person who registered us put us in the wrong site. We were completely set up on the blocks, power on, sewer hooked up and slides out and they told us they made a mistake and we would have to move to a different site. We argued since we were already set up, but they still made us move. Thus, we spent the entire afternoon setting up because we had to juggle to get in the second site too. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a great park. It is really a campground that has facilities for RV's (full connections & cable). It has dirt sites that are fairly level. It certainly is not a fancy "RV resort" but I like this style of camping for a change. Lots of families with kids, who so far have been well behaved. There is a good restaurant (great hamburgers!) inside the gates as well as a small grocery store. The beach is nice and refreshing in the hot weather. There are lots of trees that provide shade and the temp is cooler here than town which is a few miles away. Lake Shasta is spectacular and the town of Mt. Shasta City is very picturesque. We will definitely come back. I would have rated it a 10 if there was free Wi-Fi (you have to pay for a service, which is slow) and if it was easier to reach someone in the office. Making reservations by phone can be difficult (but worth the persistence). We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great park. Lots of stuff to do without ever leaving. We stopped here on our way back from Oregon before heading to Mendocino for 10 days. Big spaces and quiet at night. Lake is awesome but not fishing from shore really. You need down riggers to get to where the fish are. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed only two nights and didn't have reservations. For some reason, we weren't in the computer so they tried to re-assign our site about 5 times to someone else. But the security guy straightened it out. Kind of a hassle, but it all worked out. We had a very nice site but the park needs some trimming as it really seems to be a fire hazard. The fire pits are nothing but a ring of rocks. Otherwise, it was fine. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
My wife and I visited this park four years ago and fell in love with the surroundings. We stayed here for a week this last September. We saw a number of deer in and around the campsites and even had a visit from a bobcat. The roads are in pretty bad shape and the individual RV sites are not level, so you'd be smart to bring something to help level you rig. We saw security and maintenance cars driving around everyday but a number of sites are in need of repair. Faucets leaking, cable connectors broken/cracked, and drains that easily overflow. Going late in September all of the amenities were closed, store, bait shop, arcade, no boats. Lake water level was also extremely low, but there were fish to be caught. We like this RV resort and will stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great location, beautiful scenery. Lots to do at the campground, renting boats, kayaks, fishing, swimming. Some sites are a little small, others are great. Only downside is customer service - it's terrible. It's very hard to book a site, let alone a group of sites. They should put site availability online (as should any other campground). The people working the phones are not pleasant to deal with. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The staff are rude and unfriendly on the phone when attempting to make reservations. If you call one minute after 5:00pm, you can not make a reservation, and they are snotty about it too. The campground is nice and has plenty of shade. S security car drives by every site several time per day and night. I also see the local sheriff drive by each time I stay at this campground. The electrical boxes and cable TV boxes suffer from deferred maintenance. The posts that hold the campsite tags are way too low and have been run over by cars and trucks do most of them are bent. The beach is excellent and the general store is the best I have ever seen in any campground ever. The store is actually nicer than most regular convenience stores I have been in. Boat rentals, nightly movies for the kids, boat ramp and dock. This place is really nice. It seems like after you get past the rude and inconvenient reservation process and actually get to the campground, it is a very nice place. I would give it a higher score than 6, but I don't like being treated like I am lucky if they make my reservation for me. I stay at this campground at least six times per year and it is always the same. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
One of our favorite parks! Book reservations early and get the RV Circle. Some sites are nicely wooded and offer privacy, others on the 'interior circle' are wide open. The beach area is terrific with peddle boat rental at reasonable rates. The lake is beautiful as there are no speed boats, only small-motor fishing boats. Nice little park for the kids. We camp here regularly. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a beautiful campground. The sites are roomy and shaded in the pines. We had no problems with any bears or deer as someone else mentioned. The staff was helpful. We had some RV mechanical problems and they sent someone down to help us quickly. The lake is gorgeous with a breath-taking view of Mt Shasta. The swimming/beach area is large and very nice. They have nice cabins with a view of the lake. The beach was a short walk from our campsite but it is a big campground so depending on where your site is be prepared to do some walking to the different amenities if you don't have a car. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have stayed here before, but this time our site was one of the tightest in the park. We were so close to the site next to us that we could not use our awning, or sit on that side of the motorhome. There were open sites around us, but since our stay was short we decided to stick it out where we were. Overall the rest of the park and our visit was quite nice. We stayed at the lakeside section of the campground on this visit, and it was a very short walk to the lake. We would stay here again but will check over our site before settling in this time. Most of the sites seem nice, but their are some very tight ones crammed in there. We camped here in a Motorhome.

We stayed in the pines, very wooded area. The big drawback was the bears! They were there every night digging through the trash. One even stood up next to our bedroom slide out on my side of the bed. The slide is at least 5-6' off the ground. It woke me up making noises right next to my head. I thought it was my cat until I turned the light on and the noise stopped, and the cat's were in their beds asleep. They dragged food under the rig, and chewed through our sewer hose. My husband opened the door one night and saw a bear cub in the trash. We needed to stay one more night, because it was cooler and we were waiting for a new air conditioner to arrive for installation in Redding. My husband paid the fee and we went in town. When we got back a note on our door said we would have to move because someone else was coming in the next day, and they wanted our site! There were sites all around us with no one near us. The 2-3 times my husband talked to these people he would come back to the motorhome and tell me how rude they were. He said he had never encountered people at a park that rude and not interested in helping anyone. I don't know if it was because they had overcharged us by two days when we first arrived, and they didn't like it when he brought it to their attention. They charged us for seven days when we were only staying five! We didn't move to another site, we left and went back to Redding. We wouldn't go back there again. The bears were enough to keep us away. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This review will be quite a bit different than when we stayed here in 2003. This trip we planned on doing lots of kayaking on the lake. We figured since school was not out yet there would be lots of peace and quiet, which there was. My gripe however, is that due to the low volume of people staying at the resort during this time, their kayak rental area was closed on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. This meant that during the main part of our trip we could not enjoy what we came to do. When we went up to the store to ask for them to help out they just said sorry, and that with the low volume of people here they can't accommodate us. Bad business. They need to tell you in their conformation letter that rentals won't be available if thats the case. We will look for a more helpful park next year. Its to bad, but we understand the camp is under new ownership, and they are sign crazy. Do this, don't do that! A little public relations practice would help as well. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
[ 5 / 10 ]
A nice enough campground, but very expensive -- with tax a single night was $28.08, which
included a surcharge for a small dog. Dirt sites situated among tall trees, very close together. Beautiful view of Mt. Shasta, and the small lake is lovely. Deer are so used to people that they walk right up to you -- they also swipe food off your picnic table if you're not careful. Everyone seemed to have a campfire going, and the smoke in the campground was very dense and kept us choking. Would probably be great for a family vacation at the height of summer. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Nice family resort. Most of the sites are spaced away from each other and all are in the pines. The ones by the lake are closet together. Family park. Movies shown every night. Beach area with canoes, paddle boat rental. Lake primarly for fishing with speed limit. Beautiful Mt. Shasta rises from behind the lake. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here in one of our first trips with our new travel trailer. They are a resort with lots of day use visitors as well as overnight camping. Large areas for both tent and RV camping, some rentals available. All of the facilities that we saw were fairly clean but we did not visit the showers or bathrooms. There was a large swimming beach and a boat launch but the speed limit is 5 mph so it is a fishing lake, not a water ski lake. Once we got checked in we didn't have any real contact with staff but saw them coming around to empty trash, etc. There were several deer in the
park at night and lots of squirrels and birds to entertain our cat. Spaces varied in size and some spaces did allow both RV and tent in the same space - great for families and they were plenty large enough. We will visit this park again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Pretty good KOA with a bit too much dust. Could use some more gravel and less dirt. But good utilities and friendly people. Nice little store and good pool. Close to town. In and out room for only one in one direction at a time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Maybe the 8 is because we came from camping in Lava Beds NM where it was over a 100 and we had no AC and had lots of flies in our site...but this place is just what we needed for us and our 10 and 11 year old kids. We stayed in site #3 and were very happy - hookups all worked fine. Our spot had full shade as we requested. Restrooms and showers were reasonably clean. The pool was refreshing and clean! Kids loved the arcade and nice to have a little camp store on site (as most KOA's do). Our only complaint was Wifi didn't work in our site - but it's nice excuse to disconnect. In general since we camp with our kids and don't have a generator, so we really enjoy KOA's and this place was no exception. They are not true camping like say a NF campground, but they are nice especially in between other rustic CG stays. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Park was dusty, trash including old refrigerator in pile of demolition waste near site. Wires for cable TV lying above ground, and some sites had extension cords between power boxes, with no RV parked near them. The sewer was positioned above our site, making hookup impossible. Good area to visit, bad RV park to stay at. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Cable TV was snow. I have not had that problem in other parks. WiFi basically did not exist. Trains, Trains and more trains. Don't go here if you want a good nights rest. Park needed repair from what I could see. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This KOA offers the appearance of neglect in many ways and an owner who is reluctant to provide the funding to fix various issues. Large tree on entering the campground should be removed as it requires one to very carefully maneuver around it. In addition there were a great number of bushes needing serious trimming along the lane we needed to travel to get to our site. Power voltage was on the low side, but water and sewer were okay. Cable TV was good. While the campground offers wi-fi, it is non-existent. Office staff who were friendly as can be, suggested at check-in that there were problems with the service. When we attempted to connect, we were instructed to reconfigure our computer notwithstanding we have had the same configuration at every other campground for the past 5-years. Other secured wi-f connections were available only we did not have the code; but, they dod not require reconfiguration. Office staff were unable to offer any help on this one, although they apologized. Owner will have to invest some funds to fix a number of issues for us to return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground is located in the forest on the outskirts of Mount Shasta City. It is a very busy camp with lots of people coming and going, and could use some upgrades to the landscaping and facilities. Many of the RV sites lack trees or grass, the wooden picnic tables are in bad shape, and fire rings are non-existent (unless you rent one or bring your own). The men's bathroom was pretty dirty during our stay. The WiFi didn't provide great reception at our campsite, but worked well enough near the store. On the other hand, this KOA has a pool, playground, and rec room for kids. Fortunately, we were able to secure a tree-shaded RV site and stayed for two nights while traveling home from Oregon. The weather was excellent as we escaped summer heat that plagues Redding and Medford. It can get chilly overnight here. Nearby trains can be heard passing through at night, but we actually enjoyed it because the train sounds echo in the woods. The staff was very friendly and amenable to our needs, and rates were quite reasonable. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
For RVs with multiple slides this park can be challenging, as the slots are narrow. We had a pull-through that was long enough so we could avoid the picnic table of the spot next to us, otherwise we would have blocked part of the table. Also, slots are sloped front to back (park is on a hill) so we had to unhitch, even though we were only staying the night. Otherwise typical KOA. The tent area appears to be very nice and in the trees, the RV area not so much. The night we stayed it was an unusual 98 degrees, so the park's old infrastructure strained, voltage dropped to 115 as more rigs showed up. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed overnight, very friendly owners. Great view of Mount Shasta (after a short walk). No Wi-Fi in our site, but she told us that before we pulled in to it - we wanted shade. Entrance to park is very narrow, one lane. Need to turn right when you come to fence after leaving street. There is a train track close by - didn't bother us, but was noticeable. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A little difficult to access in large rig as you have to maneuver around some large trees. Park is small, gravel, dirt roads, with some pretty sorry looking trees that need lots of pruning and trimming. Staff is very friendly but they haven't cleaned up the park nor filled the pool yet. Wife's iPad had difficulty accessing the Wi-Fi (my laptop did not). Trains running through the night was a little disturbing and woke us up a couple of times. We had an excellent Italian dinner at Mike & Toni's. I seriously doubt if we will ever stay at this KOA again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Sites are gravel/dirt. Due to trees location,I was not able to receive satellite reception and used the park cable reception. WIFI connects readily. Bathrooms are clean however, the toilet stalls are larger than the shower stalls, which are quite small. Trains run through the city area but we were not bothered with the noise. Hosts were able to assist with mobile RV repair contacts.Very nice park in the woods. Scenic sites are nearby both above and below ground. We stayed 3 nights. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Stopped here for an overnight on the way down to Yosemite. Office staff was very friendly and provided us with a site where we did not have to unhook our tow vehicle as requested. Did not get a chance to use the facilities. Unable to get Wi-Fi due to our site location which was disappointing. Trains are loud but it didn't bother us. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Attendant was not available for check-in but left a list of available sites. I tried to find one that was fairly level but to no avail. I had to put 2 2x12x12 under each rear set of duals to level the coach. Branches scratched the coach on top and on the sides on the way to the site. The pool was open but it was a murky green color. The playground was nice for those with children if you overlook the pea gravel base. We stayed here two nights and love the Shasta area. We would not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is certainly nothing fancy. Gravel roads and pads and the pads were not real level. The young lady who checked us in was very pleasant, however. We have stayed here before and for a one night stop over we will probably stay here again. If we were planning on exploring the area I think we would look for another park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The office staff was very friendly and helpful and the bathrooms were nice and clean. However, our site was one of the least level sites we have encountered in our two years of full-time RVing. It took 4" of wood on the curb side to make it level side to side and our back steps were 18" off the ground due to the slope of the site. Overall though, the campground was nice for an overnight stop and the Wi-Fi was awesome! We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Arrived after the office closed as a late check-in. The entrance road is a little small and dark but findable (the entrance shares the road with a residential development and at night we wondered if we where taking the correct road). Note that late arrivals are not given the rest room codes, you pay the same $ amount but don't get the chance to use them. Luckily another camper fixed that problem. (If we would have been extended restroom privileges my overall rating would have been a 9 or 10.) We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice looking park: wide sites, trees. Friendly staff. Our kids loved the playground. The "heated" pool was too cold to bath in. Some of us found it hard to sleep due to train noise - the camp is right next to the railroad and the train honks really loud when it passes through the city. And also, we camped during Labor day weekend which was very busy, and the toilets and showers were always too crowded, occasionally disgustingly dirty and poorly maintained. The folks at KOA clearly did not build enough toilets and showers and more importantly, did not adjust the frequency of cleaning to the level of use during a very crowded holiday weekend We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
The entrance is a bit narrow, only one vehicle can enter or exit at a time. Sites wide, some in the sun and others well shaded. Staff extremely friendly. Convenient for visiting Mount Shasta. The park is close enough to the railroad tracks, although you can't see them, that train whistles are very audible. We'd stay there again, however. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A beautiful wooded setting. The hostess was friendly and the restrooms were warm and clean. The Wi-Fi was slow and kept shutting down but otherwise it was a nice stay. We stopped here to break the mountain driving in half. The directions are a little strange, forget Chestnut street and just turn left on Mount Shasta Parkway. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The weekend staff was as friendly and helpful as can be. The lady in the office went out of her way to help us with a medical problem that we had, finding a dentist that would help. She saved our vacation. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It was a nice park, with lot's of kids having fun. Check in was easy/fun. The WiFi worked well, but cable did not. They did put us in a shady site- It had a 30 amp service but low voltage, 2 of us has trouble with the power/AC. We hardly heard the trains, Not bad at all. Good place to R.O.N and move on. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A nice enough place, lots of trees, grass between sites. But sites are not completely level (not bad, just expected flat) and camp roads are gravel so a bit of dust. Showers clean but private dressing areas are small and have no bench to change on. Staff very pleasant. Could use some updating, lots of potential if they spruce it up a bit. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Not a bad location a couple of minute drive off the 5. The town is pretty with great views of the mountain but no mountain view is possible at the campground (because of the woods). Some areas of the park are extremely dusty (as it is near baby powder consistency). The WiFi here is a joke. If we physically stood in front of the office we got 1, maybe 2 bars. They should not be able to advertise this feature plain and simple. Even though we pre-coordinated our need for a very easy-in/easy-out site (due to our long truck-trailer configuration) we were put in the tightest spot I could see they had. Getting to our site required me backing up to make the corner and the site itself was unlevel in both directions. I had to use levelers and could not realistically unhook the truck from the trailer because of the incline. They had vacant sites all around us so I wasn't particularly happy about it. The manager seemed arrogant from watching her deal with other customers, however the other lady I dealt with was nice (she basically apologized for the manager's attitude even though I hadn't dealt with her). One note about fuel in the area. The stations in Shasta are extremely RV unfriendly in terms of physical layout. We had to get fuel up the road in Weed. Might stay here again for an overnight but that's mainly because the staff at Siskiyou are rude and they don't allow 1 night stays. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Manager was replacing cable TV in our area. Wi-Fi signal was very weak so we used our Verizon air card. Laundry was clean but $2 for a wash load. Sites were level and shaded. Interior roads are very dusty. Views of Mt Shasta from park. Convenient to Mt Shasta City. Train goes by several times during the night and the whistle is sometimes loud. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is in a very nice setting. Lots of tall shade trees to the point that we had to have the lights on in the motorhome during the day. The park is right in front of snow capped Mount Shasta which is quite beautiful. We had a pull through site which was long enough to hold our 31 foot motorhome with toad attached. Site was level and all hookups worked, except for the WiFi. We had a Verizon aircard which worked just fine so the weak WiFi was not a problem for us. We stayed for one night on the way to Nevada from Oregon, and it is a good stopover. Park is in need of some updating, but all in all it was fine for our needs. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have wanted to stay in this KOA for years but never got passed driving through. We just spent the last 10 days here and found the new managers and other staff to be wonderful! They truly go above and beyond to make every camper welcome and comfortable. They are working hard to get this park in tip top shape for the coming summer and we are can't wait to see the improvements when we come back in July. Thanks to the staff for everything you did to help make our stay the best in all the 20 years we have been RVing. May 2010 We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We camped here on our way to Seattle with our two children. It's off-season, but the campground hosts were NEVER here. We stayed overnight and never saw or heard from them. Our registration was tacked to the front door and no one was here for us to check out. The playground was all right, but there was really nothing else for the kids to do. They had put us in a site right next to the bathrooms, which meant people tromping through our site at all hours. On the plus side, it had a beautiful view. I can see why people stay here in summer. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I was disappointed in this KOA Park because of the high fee during off season, the cable TV did not work, the site was very unlevel, and the showers lack a stool or chair. Then there is the experience with off season staff and hours. We arrived at 4PM and the office closed at 5PM. When the office is closed you can not access the laundry or game room. The young check in clerk did his best to get me near the Wi-Fi tower in the office. However, he directed me to a site that had the utilities on the passenger side, not the proper place, the driver’s side. This is weird setup only seen in older parks. There were only 3 other campers in this park so it was virtually empty. We relocated but he did the same thing again for a camper that came in just before 5PM. I asked the clerk about the cable, but he had no clue. There is no off the air TV here. After the office closed there were several transients that came in and used the showers. Yup, the ladies restroom had a lock but the code was advertised on a bulletin board for late arrivals along with the Wi-FI code. We camped here in a motor home and paid $33.66 for a w/e site. It was worth $15. The Wi-Fi was very good, but since we were very near the antenna and only had 3 bars I suspect some areas would not have good Wi-FI. This is probably a very good place to take the kids during the summer, but I would not pay their high fee again. If I want a “true camping” experience I will take a tent to the woods. I stay at private campgrounds such as KOA because I want a level place to park, hot clean showers, TV, and Wi-Fi. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice shady park, but mostly dirt and gravel. Good spot for an over-night stop, but wouldn't care to stay any longer. The trains didn't bother us at all. Very friendly staff. WiFi worked great in my spot. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We found this campground to pretty & wooded, especially for a KOA. The staff was friendly & helpful. The pool is small but nice and the city of Mt Shasta was within walking distance. The only negative was the frequent train noise but even it was tolerable. We camped here in a Motorhome.
PROS: Beautiful Surroundings, nice staff, easy access from I-5. CONS: No Grass, lots of dirt, early morning train noise nearby. If your looking for "True" camping experience, this is the park for you. Very nice staff, spaces were acceptable for double slides. your right in the middle of the mountains, with lots of BIG trees and trails and such. Not for folks that want the "RV Resort" feel, like I said, more of a true campground thing. I would stay here again for an overnight stop. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice campground. We stayed 2 nights and would have stayed another if I knew the campground was this nice. It was shaded with pine trees, the only bad thing was the pines blocked the view of a snow capped Mt. Shasta. We also had Wi-Fi. It is close to town (a 2 min. bike ride). Did not hear any traffic noise from I-5, and only heard 1 train way off in distance, it actually added to the feel of the area. This is a good layover campground or to stay a few days and enjoy the area. Mt. Shasta (both the town and the mountain) are beautiful. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a very comfortable park in a nice location. It is great for an overnight or two. It features friendly staff, level sites, nice location and is within walking distance of town. What would make it a 10? Dependable wifi. Also, the pool was closed the day on the warm day we were there. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a pretty campground located in almost downtown Mt. Shasta. I have several complaints, however: The website states that Mt. Shasta "presides" over the campground. In fact, Mt. Shasta can only be glimpsed from one tiny corner of the campground. The WiFi is painfully slow. My site was directly across from the gameroom and the signal strenth was 3 bars. I clocked the connection at 13 Kb, slightly faster than the original 1200 baud dial-up modem connection. Late at night, I clocked 400 Kb (the cheapest DSL connection available). If you want to use the internet, plan on a late night. The mens' restroom had only two of the three showers operational. The dressing areas did not have a bench of any sort to set your toilet kit or eyeglasses on. Rather than put my stuff on the floor, I chose to use the motorhome shower. The website did not mention the nearby railroad switch yard that remains busy all night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an older park but well maintained. Trees are mature, grass areas are spotty with patches of green and some areas left to go brown but we were here in July. Gravel RV pads are reasonably but not uniformly level. We had to use wheel blocks and leveling jacks. WiFi is free but the office admitted that coverage can be weak in many areas farther away from the game room. Not all RV sites have sewer lines. Nice play area for the kids. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The cable was out ("Someone will be in today to fix it. Gophers ate the lines." Not happening.) The pool was closed indefinitely. The roads were rutted. Sweet but clueless high schoolers manning the desk. Shade available only to those staying a week or more, apparently. Access road hazardous with overgrown trees and narrow entry. No warnings of such. The list is longer. Avoid. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a correction of the review I left in June. I rated the park poor but gave it a "9" in error. Staff was barely civil, but it is a poorly maintained campground that needs lots of fixing. I doubt we would ever return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
What a delightful park. Staff was friendly and welcoming. Clean park with mostly gravel roads. Many trees so satellite reception might be difficult. But who cares - each site comes with free cable TV and free wireless Internet (which worked fast and without problem in our trailer). We would definitely stay there again should we find ourselves in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Used as an overnight stop, seemed OK. Was able to navigate a large fiver through the park and pull through was adequately long and wide for slides both sides. Down side, all roads are gravel, which is now mostly very fine dust. You get large accumulation of dust all over everything. Site was level side to side, but not front to back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
One of the best KOA's we've stayed at! The staff bent over backwards to help us and was always happy. The bathhouse was spotless but dated. The store was well stocked and very clean. The gameroom and pool were great for the kids. We did notice the trains running at night. They weren't too bad. We just turned on the a/c to drown them out. Slept like a baby! Mt. Shasta is a great town. Everyone should visit. We camped here in a Motorhome.

HORRIBLE - DO NOY STAY HERE !! Although the camp owners have no control over it: there are 4 railroad lines that all come together about 1000 yards from the camp. The trains arrive ALL DAY and NIGHT and they blow their horns at least 4 times as they pass through the town. The noise literally makes your tent shake. It is ear-piercing. The entire back 1/3 of their camp is empty and I can see why. The trains pass as close as 100 feet from the rear of the camp. They charge on a pay as you go basis. I can see why. I'm sure plenty of people stay one night, pack up and go. That's what we did, but we lasted 2 nights. The camp itself is not very well maintained. The shower/bath area was only fair in cleanliness. They only had one place to take your garbage (no cans scattered throughout the campground). When going to Mount Shasta, find someplace else to stay. The entire town of Mount Shasta City (it's a small place), rocks from the train noise. Too bad as Shasta is such a great hiking destination. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
We stopped here on our way to Oregon 8 years in a row. We will not go again. The last time we stayed, there was a problem with the electrical hook-up. The maintenance man (a teenager) took a look, shocked himself and then declared that the problem was in our rig. Turned out he was wrong. While no lasting damage was done to our rig, we will never stop at this campground again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground had the rudest customer service I have ever seen, not only was the place filthy, but the quote they gave us on the phone was entirely different then what they tried to charge us. After nearly a half hour of arguement late at night we gave in, but promised to never return. We try to warn everyone heading over the pass about the place. We had never in all our years of RVing seen such lack of manners and such horrid treatment of customers. I will never again stay at any KOA because of the people running it. We camped here in a Motorhome.

This is right IN Mount Shasta City. The staff was friendly and helpful. BUT, the bathrooms were dirty/moldy. They weren't checked regularly for the number of people using it. Not absolutely unacceptable, but I expected better from a KOA. The cabin we stayed in had not been completely cleaned with spiderwebs,etc. around. The park has a mobile home park on one side, single family homes near the entrance and a street on the other side. There are TRAIN TRACKS right across this street and the trains are LOUD. The Kabins and tents are in a nice woody area, but that is the part of the
park closest to the train tracks. We won't be staying here again. We camped here in a Campground Cabins.
