We camped here in tent for 3 days during the Labor Day weekend. The park is very well managed with clean restrooms and showers. This site has a swimming pool and kids really enjoyed it. There's a pond within the campground. Kids did fished and left the fishes in pond. Overall good experience and hassle free. We camped at Auburn Gold Country RV Park in a Tent.

This park advertises that it has gone green with solar. Its true they have a massive solar array. The management does a great job of keeping this park clean and neat. The pool and hot tub are awesome! We camped at Auburn Gold Country RV Park in a Motorhome.

A very nice rv park with paved pull-throughs and some back-ins. Our site was wide enough to park the truck next to the trailer. There is privacy hedging between sites and a picnic table. The site we were in was not level, but it wasn't too bad. Neighbors were friendly and there are some long term folks here. You are near a small airport so there is some plane noise. OTA signal was good as well as Verizon service. Their Wi-Fi works fairly well. We would stay here again. We camped at Auburn Gold Country RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Excellent location mid way between Sacramento and Reno/Lake Tahoe. Easy access to most sites with some sites a little larger for a little more $$. Best park in the area, the hosts are great and the price is right. Very nice clubhouse with large TV and leather couches. Small assortment of items for sale to make your stay more convenient. Only problem was a daily cleanup with a loud leafblower. That could be either a plus or a minus depending on your viewpoint. Swimming pool available for warmer weather. We camped at Auburn Gold Country RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here for 6 nights while visiting nearby relatives. Our site was a back-in but I think you could have gotten a 747 in the same spot, it was so big. Big trees shaded almost every spot. Wi-Fi service was pretty good most of the time. The only other thing we used was the laundry, 5 or 6 washers and 5 or 6 dryers. It was clean and very quiet at night. It is close to a small airport so there was quite a bit of air traffic during the day. Every day we saw park attendants taking care of stuff. We would definitely stay again.

Turn right onto Quartz Dr, go to 2nd stop sign, turn left on Rock Creek Road and take 1st right onto KOA way [right past the church parking lot] Drive straight into the park, Office is on the right.

The RV sites are very close together. They are asphalt, they have trees at the end of site but that's about it. No grass or designated area within the site to even put out a chair. We chose it because of the vicinity. It's close to wineries, Grass Valley, Sacramento, and our friends and family in the area. We camped at Auburn Gold Country RV Park in a Motorhome.

I won't bore you with details, but when we first pulled in I was ready to forfeit my prepaid-non-refundable payment to get out. Wait! it does get better because we ended up staying 6 weeks and we're glad we did (see! a happy ending)! We later saw our first impressions played out time and again when new people arrived (hmmm, something makes everyone cranky when they arrive here). But as one camper told us on our first day - give it a day or two, check out the park, the amenities, the surrounding area, and meet the staff, etc., then form an opinion. IMO: that's the key to a happy stay at this park. The park is clean, well kept, well managed, nicely landscaped, with a great pool, spa, laundry and store. What drives most of the negative impressions are the lot sizes and the price. I have a 40 ft. class A (ding) and I paid double what I'm accustomed to paying (ding, ding) so I fell right into the muck. After backing in, which wasn't bad afterall, the next scary event was parking my car parked right beside our rig; the site wasn't long enough to park end to end, so there would be no "outdoor" living space for us. Then we learned there is overflow parking nearby and problem solved. Also, the park has a lot of permanents, but they're the best permanents I've met - nice, friendly, with well kept spaces. Let's face it, this is the best (if not only) park in the Auburn area and the owners know it so they charge high rates - this is my only legitimate gripe and I told them so.

Stable electric, good water pressure, great wifi (recently upgraded), and nice shade from nearby trees. We stayed 6 weeks (monthly + two weekly rates) in a deluxe back-in site with a 40 ft class A and toad. Shopping nearby is excellent - everything you'd want (Target has the cheapest groceries); Home Depot is right down the road, and there is a great hardware/plumbing store closeby. I'm giving 8 stars despite the high rates, just because life exists outside our wallets if we just look for it. We camped at Auburn Gold Country RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Check out Grass Valley and Nevada City - great weekend get aways. The local wineries are a must see. The "Club Car" in downtown Auburn offers good music and food. Also, Dimartini RV sales in Grass Valley has a large selection of Class As & a top notch service department.

I have actually stayed at this park a number of times over the last year.

My most recent time was in overflow, which is reflected in the slightly lower price.

The wifi is free and can be sketchy, depending on location within the park.

The staff are friendly and helpful. They have been very helpful to me when I have not had a solid schedule. Sometimes it means I move sites, however they do what they can to get me in.

There are a number of grassy areas for dogs.

The pool is clean and well maintained. Heated. Closed in the winter. The spa is also nice. They recently installed a new stall around the pool area.

There are 6 or 7 washing machines and about 3 dryers. It seems to be adequate, I have never had difficulty finding 2 free machines to do 2 loads.

The spaces are tight, however there is foliage between most spaces to give some privacy.

The overflow is gravel, as are some of the back in sites. Some sites are paved. We camped at Auburn Gold Country RV Park in a Motorhome.

We had a pull thru spot. We are 39'. There wasn't enough room for the truck and trailer so we had to unhook soon. The space was narrow. We could not open our awnings. The space was not even close to level. It threw our auto levelers into a tizzy. Each space has trees and bushes. The overall park was nice looking and clean. Lots of full time residents. A couple grassy areas for pets. Very noisy. People talking at night, the freeway was right there, helicopters and planes during the day. If you have a larger rig, do NOT stay here. It's tight because it's an older park. Anything over 35' is an issue. I would not stay here again. We camped at Auburn Gold Country RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

I can say a few things positive - it was clean & quiet. It also was packed with full-time residents with few available spaces. We were crammed into a narrow short site between two full-time residents. Couldn't extend our awning & couldn't walk around the RV with the door open or anything else left open. Also, couldn't go around to the back of the rig as the tow hitch was touching the small dirt cliff along the back. This is not a resort or even what you would want in a "vacation" destination even if only passing through. We camped at Auburn Gold Country RV Park in a Motorhome.

Overpriced is probably the best word to describe this park. It is not bad, it is actually reasonably clean and maintained. It is certainly better then many parks that are majority "long term" tenants. But for the price I would expect more. TV was by OTA only, the Wi-Fi was bad to marginal. The office (and main building) was only open from 8 to 5 (bathrooms 24/7). When I compare it to the park in Nevada where we spent the previous night it really comes off bad at 2.5-times the cost. The cheap park had an office/store that was open 24-7, on-site 24-7 security, a bar, a restaurant, cable with 50 channels (about half a dozen premium ones, HBO, etc), multiple Wi-Fi hot-spots, etc, etc. I can't see ever staying there again and could not suggest it to others. We camped at Auburn Gold Country RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nicely kept former KOA. However, at least some of the "pull-through" sites require disconnect. We camped at Auburn Gold Country RV Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed here for a week and on the last day the wife broke her foot. I went to the office and asked if we could stay another 2 nights while she sought out treatment. Was told nothing available and had to move. I understand that, that being said, wifi was very iffy no cable TV OTA only. Had a pull through site but had to disconnect. Site was not level and had to use leveling blocks. Staff was friendly and restrooms were clean. I feel the place was way overpriced considering the poor wifi and no cable TV. Furthermore while out walking the dog I noticed more than one "lookout for rattlesnakes" signs. We camped at Auburn Gold Country RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice park, very clean and the owners take obvious pride in this park. The sites are small and close together, but have tables at each one. All the amenities are available (pool, playground, laundry, etc.) Great for a few days when visiting this historic area. We camped at Auburn Gold Country RV Park in a Motorhome.

Many, many long term residents. Seems many are working in the area as they are gone all day. Didn't seem to be many vacationer spaces and the ones we were in were hot and cramped and no place to park the vehicle by the time the trailer was parked. There were places down at the end of the row for vehicles, but that was a bit nerve-wracking as it is out of sight and the bed was loaded with travel stuff. Office and grounds staff are all friendly and helpful and the park is clean and neat. The showers are old and a bit worn, but clean and pressure is good. The showers are stuffy and hot with little ventilation available. TV off the air and Wifi worked fine, unfortunately, the park goes through TengoInternet as do many others... We camped at Auburn Gold Country RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
