The Lakes RV Resort is clean and pretty. Check in and check out were a breeze. The facility is gated and you get a remote so you can come and go easily. The staff were very friendly. I was afraid it would be quite hot but a lovely breeze kept it quite pleasant. There is plenty of grass next to each site. The dog area was clean and well maintained. Sites were big and easy to get in and out of. The pool and hot tub are small but adequate. There was a get together (a pot luck I think) in the clubhouse next to the pool. Everyone seemed friendly and polite. If there were other things to do at the clubhouse I didn’t see them. It would be nice if there were some sort of game room. All in all we had a very nice stay here on our way to our next destination. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Motorhome.

Our Good Sam's discount offset the 10% tax, so the rate quoted is the amount we paid with the discount applied. The resort promotes free golf, but utilizing the discount negated that offer. The facility is beautifully landscaped with immaculate pool, hot tub, restrooms and showers. The environment is not kid-friendly with rules such as no foreign objects in the pool area. While friendly enough, the regulars and some staff have the run of the pool area with nightly gatherings in the adjoining meeting room and their pets roaming free in the pool area. The laundry facililty is very reasonably priced and one of the cleanest we've seen. An odd request is posted to use only one machine at a time (there are three sets of washers and dryers). The angle of the pull through sites is difficult for big rigs, but manageable. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a beautiful newer park. Our rate is a weekly plus one night averaged. We stayed in a regular back-in that did not have room for our 40' and compact car, so we had to walk to parking. The site was also not real wide, although it was separated by flowering shrubs which attracted hundreds of bees. We also had some issues with low water pressure, as did other campers, in the morning and evenings. The clubhouse and pool are very nice. They offer two rounds of golf per day and the pads are concrete. There is also an off-leash area for pets. There seemed to be a lot of ridiculous rules that are "strictly enforced" but they are not, and some of the property owners seem to believe they are exempt from the rules, as I was chased by the same unleashed dog three times in two days. We would definitely stay again if in the area. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Motorhome.

A friend told me that I should stay here. I'm glad I did. A first class operation. I stayed a week on pad 81. Easy walking distance to a nice public golf course. Chowchilla does not have much going for it. There is a new Save Mart grocery store about 1 mile west. The Lakes development is suffering with the economic downturn. Lots of 'For Sale' houses on the golf course. And inside the park there are lots of pads for sale. I took one day and drove to Yosemite. About 80 miles each way. That was a treat. Especially the views from Glacier Point. I will stay here again if I travel on highway 99 headed to or from San Francisco. Recommended. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a very ritzy park! The park is gated and has nice paved roads. There is a man-made lake in the middle. There is a golf course and the high price does include free golf for two each day which is nice for golfers. We were in one of the least expensive sites. The park is well kept up, the sites are level, paved, have a patio and grass. There are shrubs between each site. The back in sites are about 45 ft, so if you have a large Fifth Wheel, both your truck and Fifth Wheel will not fit. That was the only negative thing I found. Wi-Fi is free and worked well. Very nice park. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here two nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. Park is three years old and well developed although not large. Great security, has concrete pads with grass and shrubs in between each site, very clean restroom facilities, a nice swimming pool and hot tub, a small convenience store. It is a bit pricey, as you pay between $40-$50 depending on where you stay (around the small lake is the most expensive). However, if you are a golfer it is a great deal as you get two free rounds of golf (cart is extra) for each night you stay. We will plan on returning again. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This RV park is new. It is small, but very nice. Very clean. Nice employees and efficient. Gated park. Great pull through sites, even for large RV. Easy to get to from freeway. Next to residential area with golf course. New part of City. A definite stop on the way to Northern CA. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Motorhome.

Beautiful, clean park with great security and very large sites. Concrete pads but not level.Wi-Fi but flaky, kept varying and sometimes would lose connection. TV has limited channels, no MSNBC. CNBC, etc. This park is over-rated for the very high price. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We got a 10% discount for being AAA members and I didn't add the tax in the amount I input. This resort is wonderful. The sites are concrete, level and roomy. The pool and hot tub overlook the man-made "lake" and are very well kept. The managers are quite helpful and friendly. There is a large grocery store nearby and a restaurant on the golf course (across the street), which has a extensive menu (but closes at 5:00 p.m. Monday-Thursday). The dog run is one of the nicest I have seen. Grounds are well groomed and landscaped. It is a brand new resort, which is a treat. Laundry is $1.25 for washers and $1.00 for dryers. There is a little store that carries the essentials and RV items. It is very secure. One is given a remote to operate all the gates and such. It is located in a high-end neighborhood amongst several gated communities. I would highly recommend this resort. We didn't golf, so I cannot rate the course.

We have been stopping here for the past three years on both the way down and then on the way back and will continue to do so. It is simply one of the cleanest, nicest parks we have ever been in and, if you golf like we do, it is the best value going. Free golf for each day. All you pay for is the cart and the golf course is a really decent course. Nice fenced dog yard. I tell all my golfing buddies to make sure they stay here on their way through and they all agree that the Lakes RV Resort is one of the best. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Motorhome.

Great park near Hwy 99 in Chowchilla. Very well maintained. Wi-Fi is very good. All sites are concrete with grass between sites which are well spaced. Golf if free if you stay. Will stay here again when traveling near Hwy 99. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

In an area (freeway corridor of Hwy 99) where there are a dearth of nice RV parks, this is a dream come true. You are off 99 about 1 mile, (so no freeway noise) but very easy to get right back on. It is kind of strange in the middle of a new housing tract, but there it is! There is a golf course, which we did not see or use as it was freezing cold! It appears to be very new, paved roads, concrete (large) pads, beautiful big pool that overlooks a pretty, albeit small, lake. I would have rated a 10, but it was a surprise that our space did not have a table. As a walked around I could see that a few spaces had them, but many did not. Somewhat weird!

Very nice park in Chowchilla well off US 99. This is a park where you can purchase a site. Golf course is within resort. Sites are well spaced and quite large. Would stay here again when in the area. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This park, hands down, was the prettiest and best laid-out park we've ever stayed in. Gated entry, beautiful clubhouse, lawns, and the sites were roomy and came with a nice table. Good selection of cable channels and the free WiFi was strong. We stayed one night and will certainly return. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Motorhome.

Registered guests receive two rounds of golf daily, golf cart extra. Weekly and Monthly rates available. Sites for sale also. There is a nice pet area. All streets are paved with cement slabs and security electric gates. We pulled in from seeing a sign on Hwy 99, like what we saw and stayed 1 week.
