6 Parks near Chowchilla, California
Aug 2016 - $39.00
Staff is very friendly as well as the people staying in the park. This was a great place to stay for overnight. Our pull through was long enough to stay hooked up. The only negative comment would be that the train is very close and does wake you up and it would have been nice to have a picnic table. Location is great. Roads are nicely paved. Large concrete patio. - Nini03

The park is clean and for $21 a good overnight stop. The spaces are tight and there are some low hanging tree branches. Use the second driveway to enter and exit. - retiredfields

We stayed here overnight. Management was awesome. Apparently the previous management did not keep the park up. It now looks great flowers and greenery everywhere. They made accommodations for us since there were no pull thru's and we really wanted to stay hooked up and we still had full hookups. - Dave's Wife

If I could give it an even better score I would... this is the ultimate in Rv resort! Beautiful spots with grass and well kept amenities. Grounds are kept like a golf course community so you can imagine the immaculate nature. We stayed during the fourth of July holiday and it was wonderful! Staff was polite, helpful and great! Great location for visiting the sites around and feeling safe when you return home. We will definitely be back! - Dog on the road

The feel here was very "gated community" with a lot of rules but I think if I was an owner I might want it that way as well. I think if you're a golfer this is a great place. Though we received a "discount" since we didn't golf. The club is an easy walk and the restaurant was fine. The lake is really a pond but still it was lovely to sit outside there. The pool area is very nice with a grill you can use. We stayed a week here because we were using it as a home base for day trips. Both Yosemite and Monterey we a couple hours drive away. I wouldn't stay a week again. 4 full days would probably have been perfect for us. If you get a back-in site on the "lake" beware. We were told we would fit and did not. Parking is in a different area. They do pick up your trash every morning. It took me days to get the laundry finished because you are limited to using only one washer and dryer. - Nini03

We stayed a couple of nights passing through the area. This was our second stay here. Apparently we didn't rate the first stay.
The park is a short drive from HWY 99 (Exit 170) along paved, 2 lane roads. The park has gated access so you're given a remote to open the gate.
The sites are a mixture of back-ins and pull-throughs. There seemed to be the extended stay sites. There is significant bump to transition from the road to the pad similar to driving over a curb. Several of the parking pads are experiencing broken concrete. The parking pads are narrow. This park understands the simple concept of the importance of a flat, level site as the sites were level and flat. Distance or hedge rows establishes privacy between the sites. There are manicured grass lawns with the sites and throughout the park. Curbside garbage pickup.
There are a few trees scattered around the park so satellite reception would be dependent upon site assignment and your dish configuration. The park brochure didn't show any cable or broadcast channels. Didn't try to get any broadcast channels.
The park provided WiFi was excellent but occupancy was low. Our Verizon WiFi hotspot worked well. Didn't try the NET10 phone so don't know about the reception.
The designated fenced pet area was in a corner. It had a grass surface. There was a bag dispenser and waste collection station in the fenced pet area for waste. There was sufficient area to walk dogs along the park roads. But there weren't any bag dispensers and waste collection stations around the park for waste.
The clubhouse, pool & hot tub amenities and park's appearance made this a pleasant stop over. We would stay here again if the need arose while traveling through the area. Don't believe we would want to make it an extended stay site due to the limited shopping nearby and the complimentary round of golf for 2 per site per night. - bsb814

Stayed here for a week visiting family. RV sites are in rear of mobile home park, visually might not be the best. Lived here for most of my life and maybe understand the area more. Very quiet, no safety concerns. The couple that runs office are very nice. Price reflects weekly rate of $185. This is a cash only place, and office does smell like smoke. Be aware that restroom facility is older, maybe clean not appealing. Used shower in rv. All said nice stay, would use again because of its proximity to Madera. - Randoni

Good place to stay a day or two. 50 amps must use higher priced pull through. Older park with some junky perminant guests. - Journey39k
Mar 2011 - $30.00
Country Living is a decent park conveniently located off 99 for an overnight stop. The price is $30, cash only. The smell of cigarettes is pretty strong in the office so if you're sensitive, you might want to send someone else in. The sites are well laid out and easy to get in and out of. The park was quiet and we'd stay again. - Travelfish

This is a beautiful park indeed IF you want to get away from the city and enjoy the great outdoors. Facilities were spotless. All hookups were fine. The price is great. Dump station is easy to use. There is plenty of hiking, walking and fishing to keep you busy. Be prepared for: rough roads going out to the park, no wifi, very sketchy wireless service and active rattlesnakes. Just be prepared. We stayed here for 8 days and enjoyed everyday knowing that you must be vigilant and watch the trail or road in front of you. This campground would be a 10 if the roads were a bit better getting there. Its worth the trip!! - Beech35p

This is a beautiful campground atop a hill overlooking the lake. The area is rolling hills full of wildflowers and falcon nests. Antenna is good, Wi-Fi is good when it works. AT&T and Verizon signals fluctuate, hotspots are not reliable. There is absolutely no traffic noise. Wildlife abounds with howling coyotes, turkeys, falcons, gophers, bunnies, and tons of birds. The only disruption are the weekenders that descend on the campground and party all night until they leave on Sunday. - LifeRidingShotgun

This was a very pleasant campground, but trees and location meant no view of the lake. Had no trouble getting satellite reception, but no cell service at all. I had a full hookup site for the price shown with a senior federal pass. I only spent one night because of the lack of cell service, but would come back again. - judy_online

This was our favorite campsite so far. Hiking trails, beautiful campsites, kind camp hosts, a lake, fishing, swimming, super dog friendly, a disc golf park, beautiful area....so good we can't wait to return. - Two_Huschels

This is still one of my favorite places in California if you want a super-quiet place, in a very pretty area, and slightly out of the way. Yes, it is probably not the best choice for a really big rig, but my 32' Class C fits in most spaces very well and sites are nicely spread out. Verizon service is best from one of the higher sites. During the week off-season, it is mostly empty, but there is always a camp host. And the dump station is often locked off-season during the week because local people tend to sneak in and use it without authorization. All I had to do was stop at the camp host, and he drove down and unlocked it for me. Lake level was up 8' from early December, which is nice but still not good enough for anything but kayaking, but the rolling hills coming in were green instead of brown for a change, with views of snow in the distant mountains. Very pretty place. - judy_online

We paid the senior pass rate. Lake levels were very low but still good for fishing and kayaking. Campground is built on a hill so it was not very easy to find a site that was level enough for a difficult 40' MH. Large pull-thrus and back ins, some with electricity and water available around the loops. Verizon 4G was OK and 3G for phone was OK. Very well taken care of. Easy dump station access. Slow during the week, a little busier on weekends. Site 40 was very level and very long with a good view of the water. - rhianna

We had trouble making reservations. Host did not listen to what type of rig I had and kept changing my site number based on my 'Airstream' (I don't have an Airstream!) When I arrived, the site assigned to me was next to a large, off-leash, big barking dog with the people listening to loud radio. I asked to be moved. The wife of the Host was very kind and understanding. The Host however, verbally 'reamed me a new one' and threatened to kick me out if I did not like loose, barking dogs and radios (said that's what you get if you RV). His wife moved me and told the people to put their barking dog on a leash so I could take my small dog safely out on a leash. Sheesh! Listened to the big barking dog the entire stay and people talking loudly at 5:30 a.m. while warming up their trucks to go to work. Site areas dirty. Been full-timing since 2000! OK, I guess, if too tired to move on. Won't stay again. - RoustAbout

We stopped here because it was in the right location for our trip south. I read the reviews and knew what I was getting. As the full hook-ups were all back in, and we didn't want to disconect our car, we asked for a boondocking spot. When we got there, the host said that he could set up a full hook-up for us without us having to unhook. We pulled alongside the curb and took up two plus spots and had a full hook up spot. He went way beyond what he had to do. As noted, no restrooms or showers or anything else except a spot to park with utilities. It was quiet enough, and very close to the Museum, with the free ticket. We didn't have time to visit the museum this trip, but maybe when we head north in a few months. - Kalama Traveler

When we pulled in, the host changed our reserved site saying the change was for long term stays. We had to pay up front for 4 weeks, and when it rained (several times), we had to wade through the water for 2 days just to enter the RV. 3 times I requested they pump out the "lake" as my RV front tubes sat in the water for over a week and I couldn't get into the storage without wading through water. I was lied to 3 times saying it would be pumped (but it wasn't) and couldn't be refunded. My original reserved site had numerous short term campers in and out. I believe I was deliberately changed to the flood area as I paid in advance, and no one would take this site full of water. If you must stay here, and if rain is in the forecast, beware of site A1,A2 or A3, or take boots. Never again for me.
No wifi, no cable, has 50 amp only service, water and sewer. Paved open site with very close spacing. - Pat Allen
