I agree with the late 2016 reviews. Some of the earlier complaints may have been due to the severe drought in the Central Valley. But we are here is the middle of a big series of rain storms! Cable TV was good, no HD. Wifi excellent. Easy access from Hwy 99. A bit overpriced. Back in sites are $40, ours was a pull-through. Too wet to try the free golf. :-( We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Travel Trailer.

45' m/h with F250 tow. 2nd trip. The park is very nice. The first time we stayed we were told there was overflow parking for our extra vehicle (we were towing and had additional car). This time told that we would have to park at golf course, when the same overflow had spots. The overnight spots are all 70' concrete with 30/50 amp, water and sewer. Plenty of space for slides. they have smaller sites for longer stays/smaller rigs. The park is pleasant, a pond with geese, a dog area that's gated. Each time the neighbors are friendly. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Motorhome.

This has become our stopover point when traveling north or south along California's central valley. It is an excellent, well-maintained RV park with roomy sites and a friendly, accommodating staff. Many parks try to claim that they are resorts...this one really is. We highly recommend this park. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Motorhome.

Special .. Round of golf for 2 each day of stay. Gated entry, no guard, very nice but for overnight a bit expensive. Have pull thru's. One dog run on the far side of the park. Nice grass right at your door. Pool. You can get a face in toward the lake in the center. Site was not too level but OK. There are hedges between each space.

Check out is noon which is unusual and nice. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Motorhome.

This is our second stay. We love this park. Feel safe with gate key fab to come and go. We stayed a year ago, two different times. This time they had spaces but could not accommodate a whole week's stay. The very nice gentleman said we have one site where we pulled corner bushes out and put gravel in for a parking space. He asked if that would be ok? I was happy to get a whole week and said yes. Most of their sites are pull in or pull through and very spacious. Although happy to have this site, would not use it again. The gravel parking spot was under a tree and we had constant bird droppings on the car. With the bushes removed, the sprinklers were just not blocked in any way and our car and just waxed MH, had water up eight feet onto the sides. Not to mention that the whole patio was soaked each day too. This is a great place to stay, just don't take site 50. The only reason I did not give it a 10 was because their very nice lawn areas are slowly turning into weeds--green, but weeds. It does have great Wifi!!! We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed with RPI, normal $ 40 for a back in (RPI always back inns). Great place, easy drive from the 99. Free good wifi, free good cable. Concrete with concrete patio. Easy back inns, very quiet. If you are in golfing this is probably even better. Great warm pool and hot tub. We will be back if passing. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This RV park has many really nice amenities and upon arriving I thought I really found a gem. Clubhouse is very nice, gated park, paved streets and pads, pull throughs, nice staff, swimming pool, small pond, not much street noise and a golf course that you can play. Sounds good. However, many of the cement pads are broken very badly, Gras through out the park is dead, dog park is a mess with only dirt and little grass and around each power pole all there is is dirt. Add a little morning dew or sprinklers that cone on and you have a muddy mess with shoes caked in mud and dirty dog feet. They need some major renovation on all pads and either get some grass growing or put down stone to prevent so much dirt and mud. All in all an average experience but it could have been 5 stars. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful, well maintained gated resort. It has a very nice grassy dog run.

Beautiful pool and spa.

Cable and WIFI worked great. Registration was quick and personnel very friendly and courteous.

We would definitely stay here again. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Motorhome.

The "Final Round" restaurant is near by, by walking thru the rear exit gate ( by the dog run ) and across a street and a large parking lot. The RV stay includes a 10% discount for food only at the restaurant.

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! We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Farensi restaurant near the hotel was absolutely the best food ever. Don't be put off by the looks of the building. Don't travel 30 miles to Home Depot. The hardware store downtown has a little bit of everything and has a wonderful staff. Local supermarket nice and hair dressers and other stores very close by. Would not recommend the nail place though. I left with 3 nails bleeding.

Very good stay during off season. It was hot but the swimming pool was great. Walking distance to the free golf. Only had to pay for the cart. Great golf course. Very nice campground on a small resort property. Nice pond and clubhouse with very pleasant surroundings. We loved it here and would stay again. We opted for the less expensive sites which were a bit tight and parking for the tow was on the street. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed here as a prelude to our trip to Yosemite to do some cooking and get trailer ready. The sites are concrete pads with some privacy hedging in between and are available as either pull through or back in. The pull through site accommodated our truck and trailer nicely. The park is gated and has a secure feel, not that the area seems to require security. The laundry area is a little on the small side with only three washers as I remember. A little concrete patio to step out on, but no picnic table in most of them (think you get one if you are lakeside). We would stay here again.

This is one of the better parks in the area. My comments: I was on pad 42. It rained rather hard while I was here. The area between the pads is hard packed dirt. Because of the rain, the area was muddy. They should put gravel, bark or stepping stones between the pads. The sewer hook-up is between the hedges and actually on my neighbors pad. They should either move the hedges, move the connection or make the opening in the hedges large enough so you can reach through to make the hook-up. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Motorhome.

Great place to stay when visiting Yosemite. Beautiful site across from a lovely fountain; incredibly well kept park. Gated and secure. Lots of shrubs between sites made for more privacy. We'd been through some dirt and mud on the way there and the manager recommended someone to come to the site and clean our RV. He did a great job!
