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.

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.

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.

Very nice park. We are in a spot with no sewer, but it has water and electric. Most sites offer sewer, but cost a bit more. There is a separate dump station we can use. It is quiet -- far enough away from Hwy 49 to not hear it much at all. There are a couple of cabins for rent, and occasionally there is a tent camper, but mostly RVs. Quite a few permanent, but they are very nice, clean rigs and sites. No one ever leaves messes or does not clean up after their pets (signs make clear if they do they will be asked to leave immediately, no refunds). Bathrooms and showers are always clean. Basketball half court, swimming pool, laundry, large washing sink, picnic tables. Wi-Fi is not good, but for simple email or light web surfing would be sufficient. (Maybe better in other locations -- we do not have a good spot for reception, however.) Friendly staff and RVers. Shade trees at most sites. Weekly rates available, as well as monthly. But monthly campers must apply for this with credit checks, deposits, etc., as though you were applying for renting an apartment or house. Utilities in that case are billed separately, unlike the daily/weekly rates. We definitely would stay here again. We camped at Auburn Gold Country RV Park in a Motorhome.

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...

A very pleasant RV Park from the first phone call until the morning we pulled out. For as many RVers (a few are fill timers....that were also very friendly) as were there (Memorial Day, 3 day weekend), the park was amazingly clean. The restrooms were clean at all hours of the day. The pool was actually very warm, and the water was clean even though it was crowded. 50 amp pedestal, so I had to use the 30 amp pedestal. The pedestals looked to be installed not long ago. I took many photos of this RV park but this forum doesn't have the ability to post photos of the RV parks being reviewed. We camped at Auburn Gold Country RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

From the very first call, we were helped with everything for the next two weeks. The park is gorgeous, amazingly well kept, and the staff and even guests are friendly. I can't say enough great things about this park. We will recommend it to anyone who is ever considering being anywhere remotely near this park. Unlike some other parks we've stayed at, this one is serious about picking up after your pet.. No doggy landmines! And their bathrooms are spotless and meticulously maintained. Everything you need is within walking distance, and a pleasant walk. I also received my bank card there, without any problems, even without paying for a box. There is a reason so many people have chose to live, or do long and extended stays. A beautiful park that I already miss; especially, the friendly people and the resident turkeys.

Nice RV park. Everything worked well, and we had some nice trees to provide shade on the hot days. We parked in the first site in the first row. The site was asphalt and slightly sloped in the rear. We had to use several pads under the back jacks to help in leveling. The site was wide enough that we could pull our tow vehicle up next to our 40 ft. RV. The road to and from the park off of Hwy 49 can be difficult because of traffic, but we found a side street between Target and Safeway that had a signal and was easier. We had a good experience with this park. We camped at Auburn Gold Country RV Park in a Motorhome.

This park offers various levels of sites. We stayed in a premium back-in site, and that is what we are reviewing here. The site provided a small concrete patio, two shade trees and a bit of lawn. The site was nice and roomy and we were lucky enough to have nothing on the other side of the road but a nice oak grove giving us a relaxing view. Office staff was pleasant, it was quiet, and convenient to Grass Valley and Auburn. There appear to be many long term folks in this area of the park. The park is nicely kept. We will definitely stay here again. We camped at Auburn Gold Country RV Park in a Motorhome.

Price reflects Good Sam Discount. Nicely kept park. Our site had a special spot for the tow, which was nice. My only complaint was the approach to our site. We are a 40 ft rig and we were in the 1st row, 2nd spot, so it was a tight turn right to make the 1st row then a quick tight turn left. Almost impossible and for someone who isn't a great driver, it would have been. Luckily, my husband is great! Location was good for visiting friends in Rocklin. Site was shaded and level and quiet. Easy access to downtown Aurora & I-80. We camped at Auburn Gold Country RV Park in a Motorhome.

Price reflects weekly rate for a premium pull-through asphalt site. Staff was friendly and helpful. We encountered some low branches on the way in off of Highway 49 as well as at our site. Wi-Fi was good as was our Verizon and Mi-Fi. Very convenient to shopping. We have stayed several times before and will stay again if in the area.
