The employees were the friendliest I've ever encountered. Grounds were exceptionally clean, as they were constantly cleaning and watering. Restrooms were usually cleaned x2/day, and have recently been upgraded into what looks like 5-star hotel bathrooms. Many trees, such that it is easy to have your unit be in the shade, if you get there early, and if you make a reservation. I stayed over a couple of weeks and during the week it is slow, but on w/e's is booked. 40' rigs can park, but some spots can be difficult to maneuver when parking. Spots are more ideal for 36' rigs. No pull thru lots. - gypsydan

Sites are miserable to level on. Nothing but mud and ruts, some areas haphardly filled in with boards. Bathrooms are disgusting, it's obvious whomever is supposed to clean them, doesn't use them. Right now the weather is in the 70's...not a boat in sight to be rented. Don't think you're going to explore the island, all privately owned, fenced off or just plain trashy. - Jahman

We had a great time here at Sugar barge. There are a lot of RV sites. There are quite a few permanents here at the park (maybe 15% of those here). But all the sites are very clean. The restaurant is great for lunch or dinner (not open for breakfast). The restaurant is only open May through labor day. They welcome all breeds of dogs! It is a great family park where kids love to ride their bikes and just have a good time. Though there are a lot of great RV parks to explore in California, and we plan to check as many of them out as we would can, this would be a place we would love to come back to. The only draw back is there are mosquitos on occasion and one needs to keep an eye out for foxtails in regards to their dogs. We look forward to returning here in the future. :-) - luvdoggiez

The park itself sits on a quiet delta but be cautious of the road it is really neglected and there is a very large rise between the lower and levy road. Enter from the north end of the levy road not the one closest to the Antioch bridge. Mostly grassy sites with open views of the surrounding delta. A few days before we expected to arrive I called to make a reservation, offered up my credit card to secure it and the reservation agent said she didn't want our credit card information, only asking for out name and phone number. The length of our RV and how many in our party. Arrived at the park late-afternoon and no one was present so we proceeded into park. I walked up to front to search for a host to be met by a gentleman telling us they are booked solid through the 1st. I tell him we have a reservation to which he replies "we'll see about that". Save yourself a trip to this RV park if you have a conversion; management does not accept bus conversions or similar 'vintage' but well-maintained camping units. - N West

Staff is friendly and they also are very helpful. Except for the wind and birds, there is no noise at the park but people driving off. I enjoyed the quiet and the people. Spaces are either in full sunlight or nestled in the tall trees. My spot had a tree that grew alongside the spot, so it was tricky backing into the site. Lots of birds, so bird droppings can be a problem. Would stay here again in a heartbeat. Rate is for monthly rate. Stayed 3 months. - Woolibaar

The rate includes our small boat being docked. This is a pretty nice park/location as the Delta goes. I probably would not come here unless you had another reason to be on this area of the Delta. Gravel sites with good shade and large, mature trees. The sites on either side of us were open, but if they were occupied, there wouldn't have been a lot of room. It gets very windy even though the sites are lower than the levee. The road in is a very narrow levee road. The entrance to the road closer to the Antioch Bridge has a very steep narrow turn. The road coming in from near the Sherman/Brannan Island drawbridge is better. The owners were very helpful and friendly. - sigepsb

Upon pulling in we were told we may pick any site we want. The employee was very polite. We picked a pull through site right in the very front. It was so level that we could have kept the fifth wheel hooked to the truck. It was off season so the pool and arcade were closed but they said they'd open the arcade for us. They had a small dog park with small agility obstacles. Right across the road was a marina where we enjoyed walking on the dock and taking in the views. Good restaurants are within walking distance and a small store is on the dock. Employees were helpful and friendly suggesting fun activities to do in the area. 50 amp hookups had no problems and we had great water pressure. It's also advertised as a tiny house community and we saw three or four cute tiny houses and several cabins. It is a very cool place right on the water and below sea level. Beautiful views and great bird watching and only a short distance to town. - Fummins family road trip

We had a fantastic time during our stay at Park Delta Bay. We arrived later at night, and they had affixed the map with a guide to our site at the entrance gate. When we checked in the next morning, the staff made us feel completely at home, and were extremely accommodating with any request we had. Our site was level, spacious, and under a beautiful, shady canopy. We took full advantage of the amenities, including the tennis courts, well-priced laundry, and an arcade game or two in the large rec room. It was a little too chilly for us to check out the pool, but we did enjoy the picnic tables under the tent while waiting for our laundry to be done. This was also when it became clear that a lot of new projects were being completed, with friendly staff painting away and checking to make sure we were enjoying ourselves. Each night, we made our way across the street to the fishing pier to relax in the fading light. This park offered perfect access to a little-known slice of paradise hidden away in California, and the sunsets over the delta were incredible every time. - Nomadic_Neighbors

This is a destination resort on the San Joaquin River. Great location for extended stay if you are visiting San Francisco Bay Area, Napa, or Sacramento. Fishing and boating paradise. Nice shaded sites with the delta breeze, even though temperature was high we didn't need A/C under the trees. - JohnnyCash

Great location and facilities but the people running the area don't answer phone nor do they return calls when you leave a message. Most of the time there was nobody in office at front gate to ask questions either. Fees are ambiguous; extra cars some signs say $8/night, others signs and people say $10/night. RV sites very close to each other and very small. Trees blocked exit out of RV area so i had to back out so I didn't damage my trailer. Tree also blocked access to dump station. People running place came by camp and rudely stated we must move a car parked on lawn, and couldn't wait for me to finish dinner before he "called in re-enforcements" to get us to move the car. All I wanted to do was finish my dinner. This was after the same people had driven by camp 5-6 times before and seen the same car parked there for the last 1.5 days and said nothing. - Toyhauler Comping

We stayed in this park for one night on very short notice. We were fortunate and got a site with electric and water hookup. We found it very quiet, pleasant and enjoyable. It is on the Sacramento delta and the area is known for being windy. Be forewarned; awnings and other external equipment will be put to the test. There is no store on the site, but the town of Rio Vista is just 3 miles to the north and has supermarkets with just about everything you could need. They do have boat launching ramps and the fishing on the delta seems pretty good. We'd camp here again. - neuronz

The road, after you leave Hwy 160 is a Levy Road which is very narrow.....no it is extremely narrow. If you like the wind this is the place for you. It seems to be a great place for wind surfing but I don't. Wouldn't ever stay their again. - RvStarShip

This is a very nice campground that is out in the middle of nowhere. Access is down a long narrow bumpy levee road. The campground is very clean, with large, level, easy back-in sites. We were in a site that backed up to the levee. We could walk up to the top of the levee, cross the narrow road and be at the edge of the river. There are benches placed along the rivers edge. We were able to watch boats and windsurfers on the river. It can get very windy here. We used this location to visit my daughter in Walnut Creek, which was about a 30 minute drive from the campground. Crossing the Antioch bridge from south of the campground is a $5 toll for 2 axels. If you are towing a trailer it becomes $20. We aproached the campground from I5 and then cut over on the 12 and avoided the toll with the trailer. We had AT&T signal, there is no wifi or other amenities in the campground. The people that checked us in were very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again. - corgi1

For starters, yes, it is very windy here. Which in the summer is not a bad thing. The week I stayed here the temperatures hovered around 100 degrees each day so the winds were a welcome relief. The camp sites are spacious and paved. The bathrooms and facilities are clean and overall the campground is very, very clean. But there are some very real cons to staying here.
1.) This campground is located north of the Antioch Bridge, which crosses the San Joaquin River linking Antioch, California with Sherman Island in southern Sacramento County. This means every time you come back from the city to the campground you pay $5 toll to cross the bridge.
2.) There are no laundry facilities on site and the nearest laundromat is 10 miles away...and you pay a $5 toll coming back across the bridge.
3.) The gates to the RV park close at 10 PM. You can still drive in and out of the park after 10 PM, but the gates are not automatic, which means opening and closing them in high winds is a hassle. And they kind of highlight the fact that there are seedy people fishing along the canal adjacent to the RV park at night.
4.) Only UPS and FedEx deliver to the RV park. The USPS does NOT. So if you want deliveries you better make sure they are coming from UPS and FedEx ONLY. Remember, both services use USPS to deliver packages, too. So even if you think your supplies are coming from UPS and FedEx, they don't always arrive that way. Your only recourse is then driving 10 miles to the post office to pick up your packages.
5.) The road to and from the RV park on Sherman Island is bumpy. Very bumpy. You better drive 25 to 35 mph on that sucker or else everything in your cupboards will end up on the floor. I kid you not.
6.) Internet is not really available. There is a WiFI company that provides Internet to people who stay here, but for a fee. However, in the week I stayed there I was never ever able to connect. And according to one of the site managers, using is isn't cheap and it is super slow.
On the plus side, you get two nights free after paying for a 5 nights stay. - Johnny Blood

We came in late and were helped by the very friendly manager. The facilities are ok but it is more a camp for residents than for campers. We would stay here again but not longer than a day due to lack of facilities for children. - Paul69

I only seem to review parks when I really like them or don't. You will not have to guess which one this is. Firstly, this is not big rig friendly. Your experience begins on the approach, a narrow twisting road on a levee for about 2.5 miles, when you arrive and must descend a single lane, very steep drop off the levee to the park. What goes down must come up. The park is very poorly maintained: dusty roads, bumpy grass (sort of grass) sites, and very poor electric. I never looked in the showers etc, but the building looked very tired. Mostly permanents (maybe seasonal), but very few transients. My 50 amp connection was not working (causing my surge protector to hum) and not delivering power to the coach. The one small bright spot was when a maintenance man came over to check out the humming, and informed me that this site had poor power and I should move to another. He did assist me and we found another site and we were able to stay the night, but left the next day. The ride up the hill to the levee was equally challenging and I was very pleased to be on my way. Would not ever return (even for free). - Woody1

First time to this park, and the last. Stayed here with Coast to Coast discount. Was charged $7.00 nightly for full hookup but only had 30 amp available, and we had to use adjoining electric because our electric was not working. Reported it to management but nothing ever happened to fix problem. Campsite was in a grassy area but probably had not been mowed in several months, grass all around was very tall which made it a mosquito haven. Staff were friendly but resort needs to fix gravel roads and general lawn maintenance. Stayed just down the road at another campground which was much more appealing and no fees. - Dedra C

Campground nicely shaded by a canopy of trees along gravel driveways.
The biggest drawback to this park is the well deserved reputation for having long-term members in row E who disrespect the people passing through. The long-term members tend to annoy, harass, and disrespect the other campers.
Management has little control over these long-term dwellers who have a sense of entitlement.
Would we camp there again? Only of there were sites available away from row E. - Wanders

Love this place. Good out-of-the-way retreat. Take your time on the road coming off Rt. 12 - very twisty. Sites are all grass and most lower than the gravel road so might be very mushy with a lot of rain. The park is much lower than the levee which supports Brannan Isle Rd., if that means anything. Only a handful of sites are 50 amp but you get to choose your own site. The Southwest sites are fairly wooded making satellite dishes useless unless they are portable. Stay on the North side if you have a mounted satellite dish. Water tests at about 520 ppm, well water - bring your own water and ice. Oddly, water not too hard but softener helps. Half of the park is separated for residents. Put pads, blocks, or wood down before leveling or you will sink. Re-level after a day. - Odyssey

We enjoyed our time at Delta Shores. Our spot was nice and shaded and the park was peaceful and quiet. The wifi worked great. They have a lot of amenities including a pool, tennis courts and game room. It is located on the Delta and not to far from a lot of different farms and wineries. - Itsawanderfulrvlife

There are not a lot of RV parks close to the San Francisco Bay Area, and even fewer one would actually want to stay at. This has become our favorite park at a good cost within reasonable driving proximity. The people working here at the park are very friendly and helpful. The sites are grass, sometimes with gravel, and the ground is very soft - we always sink in under our jacks, so boards are very helpful. They have a limited number of 50 A sites and the sites are fairly open, though some sites have tree obstructions for satellite reception. They do have activities most evenings and a large section of the park is dedicated to full timers. The park is safe and enjoyable and has a nice playground. The biggest con is the ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE water quality here. Your filters will clog within days, and you don't want to drink this water even if it's filtered. Beware the roads - the access road to the resort is a winding levee road for the last mile or so, and the entrance to the resort dips steeply down from there. (You wouldn't want to be here if the levee ever failed.) The highway to get here is also not always flat due to shifting Delta soil, and construction is not uncommon. - Luvduvs

LEO rangers now civilian. Always out working on the grounds. Varying amounts of shade thru park. Now taking internet reservations. The bath houses are rustic, but spotless. Noticed F&G checking out the fisherpeople. The sheriff's deputies came through every day. My wife felt safe. Will stay again. - diceshooter60

Park is clean, well kept up, and friendly staff. There is no toilet, shower or supplies like food or RV equipment. Free ice. They have fishing platforms and fish cleaning area. Adult only 55+. Highway 160 in front of park sometime looks more like a parking lot. 30 amp and 50 amp at site, no 20 amp. Clean and well kept power station. Standard down 3 inch sewer connection on cement pad with the power. No cable TV, limited and not very good antenna TV. The area can be very windy. We had 35 mph winds 2 out of the 3 days I was there. - Buster52
