28 Parks near Cloverdale, California
Aug 2016 - $1.00
Wow, not 1000 Trails signature campground. Very aged, horrible roads, sites are uneven. Swarms of bees and the river is a trickle. No pool or any activities for the kids.
No sewer connections at the site, one dump station. Many of the utility boxes broken.
We left early. I would skip until they can put some money into this one. - Cautiously Optimistic

Roads are narrow, no pool, kids could not swim in beach, sites were close together, and the washer was broken. Cameras at the entrance of the bathroom positioned so that they could see the reflections from the mirrors. Will not be returning to this site, checked out early. - Just Passing through 2015

As with many Thousand Trails Campgrounds over the past few years the facilities have declined sharply. There is little restroom clean-up now and the sites that are available are difficult to get into. More and more rental cabins or long-time campers have taken over the sites. It is tricky to find a site if your rig is over 30 feet and in some cases you must back down one-way roads. - Dip1Dip1

Our experience started on a Wed. afternoon at 2:55 p.m. when I called to book a reserve. for 3 days ahead and got Voice Mail. After waiting through very long message, left my call-back number. Still no call-back by 4:40 so called again and got Voice Mail left another message. Next morning got a call back with no comment at all about the delay in calling me back. Booked 1 night. Turning off Hwy 101 to Asti Rd took us through lovely vineyards then came the challenge. Very, very steep climb up a narrow, winding road with not enough room for 2 vehicles to pass each other. About 1/4 mile from entrance there was a sign saying "Don't despair, you're almost there". That should tell you something. Got to office at 2:30 and our reserve. was already posted on the door like office was about to close (3:00 I'm guessing). Were given a site that a car could barely fit in, much less our 24' motorhome. Had to get a different site because it was a pull-in (not pull-thru). Needed to use leveling blocks but were unable to use them at this site due to a 10 ft drop into a ditch in front of us. Switched to site 59 so we could park cross ways and overlapped space behind us and stuck out in driveway to tent sites. Sad part is that the facilities look very nice, lovely fish pond, lots of cabins and tent sites, lovely views but if you are an RVer...stay away! My first mistake was assuming that the price would be comparable to other KOA's we stayed in with our discount. That being $36. But $65...you've got to be kidding!! - Kittygramma

Nobody home! Drove, drove and drove to get to the location, not sure how many miles on narrow, sometimes gravel, windy country road up and down hills to get there. Once there, no one home, no nothing. Called the number on the door, answerer not much help. Pick a site that's open! Had called ahead also. Parked on a side of a hill, no view of anything but normal countryside with trees and a dry creek bed. Do not stay if just overnighting, too far off the highway. Way too much money for what you get, which, is just a hookup. - LottaTidbits

Shady sites,but overpriced and difficult to get to. The desk clerk wrote down all my credit card info to log in charges. When I asked for that info back she said it was company policy that she shred it. I said I could do that but she refused to give it to me. I don't recommend this place for that reason. - De order

This was way overpriced but we didn't want to drive any further. There is not much competition in the area. They do not take reservations but said to come on in anyway. At that point we were committed on the drive. Park is about a half mile down a narrow street. We got brushed by a lot of trees. At the end there is a steep climb with several hairpin turns. We were okay in our 35-foot diesel pusher but not fun.
Manager was very helpful getting us in our site. He then informed us that there was no WiFi and pool closed after October 1. Also no cable. He said the owner turns everything off October 1 and heads for Mexico. Rate was $60 CASH with no discounts. We would have left then but didn't want to drive down that hill and try to find someplace else. Manager came out later and gave us his personal WiFi password. Satellite could not find signal for TV.
This could be a lovely little park in summer when amenities were better. However, still not worth the price. - Slkeyes

This is a pretty park in a gorgeous area! It's up on a hill with relatively little level space, which means tight maneuvering for big rigs (and I think there's only one or two spaces available for those...) and not always a lot of extra space for parking a toad (like when someone's having a little gathering at the pool and they take up all the spaces...). The site we were in (15) had enough trees around it that it was very hard to get any satellite signal with our roof-mount (after a long time, our sat. finally found one to lock onto), and there is no cable TV. There were three washers @ $1.75 and several dryers @ $1.50. The pool area looked very nice, and the grounds were nice and well-maintained EXCEPT for some dog piles I found - primarily next to a site where I know the guy lets his little dog walk around loose a lot. The dog wasn't really a problem, but the owner needs to look around more to pick up after his dog!!! I also found other piles elsewhere. Will never understand why people aren't more courteous and diligent about this. Gives us other good dog owners a bad name, and makes for all sorts of pet restrictions, and it's not fair to the good ones!! They only give rate discounts to veterans. - CarrieBearie

Price reflects a weekly rate. This was our second year at Dutcher Creek. We came back because the park is relatively quiet and in a rural setting. It is perhaps 1/2 mile from the Hwy 101 freeway. Distant enough to minimize freeway noise but still convenient for freeway access. It's a short drive Healdsburg and numerous wineries. Access is through a residential area and then up a steep, but paved entry road. A little intimidating at first but quite doable. There are only about 5 sites for short-term stays. These are near the office and by the pool. The rest of the spaces are scattered over the property and occupied by park models and 5th wheels for long term residents. It's a little strange at first, but it seems to work. The restrooms are dated, but reasonably well maintained. Hot water can be an issue if more that one shower is running or someone is doing laundry next door. One note of caution -- in April there are some mosquitos in the evening from the creek down the hill. - EDB Husky

We don't use the bathroom/shower facilities so they're not an issue. Passport America discount makes this a real value when visiting our favorite wineries in the Alexander Valley, Dry Creek appellation's. Sites are paved, level and spaced reasonably. The only downside is at this time of year (grape harvest) traffic noise starts at around 4AM. - WGustaf
Sep 2016 - $25.00
Healdsburg is an overpriced town on everything, RV Parks included. Most were $50 with medium reviews. Clothes washing $3.50 to $4.50 at cheapest. This park is OK. My site required all 8 of my 12x24x2 blocks to get close to level on my 38' mh. All sites are water/elect only w/dump station on site. Weekends park was full of families. I would stay here again due to price. Signage at turn-off from Alexander comes up very quick (we passed it 1st time). - bigbuda

We stayed overnight on way home from winter in the desert. Other parks in the area had bad reviews, so I chose this newer one, and I had the 50% Passport discount. It had just opened for the season, so was being cleaned. Some spaces have 20 amp with 30 amp, some 20 with just 50 amp, you have to go looking at each to find out. But many of the new looking power pedestals were defective, one wired just a single breaker for the 30 amp which blows loudly with a pop and spark even when nothing is plugged into the pedestal, space 48.
But None with sewer connection other than the one dump station, No cable; no WiFi. Most sites nicely mowed grass but far from level. There are restrooms and they do have one shower in a small utility trailer separate from the restrooms. Overall, OK overnight with half price Passport, but would be terrible for full $50 price they first quoted! This is a couple miles off Hwy 101, so its rural and pleasant environment with a river on the site. - solarsteve4x4

Great Staff in a very remote and beautiful location. Deer and other wildlife all around you. DO NOT approach from the southern route with a large rig! Come down from the north. Access through St. Helena should only be done in a small rig. I came in with a 41' diesel towing a SUV but it was tough! Not recommended! - David Buchanan

Very poorly managed and maintained. A really nice park but very run down. The manager lives in a house in the back of the park and cannot see the office from her home. When we arrived we waited with three others for her to "return at 3:00," even though it was 3:30. She finally came over from the house in back around 4:00. She was not very friendly and acted as if we were bothering her. We never found her in the office and had to go to the house in back to try to find her if we needed anything. The sites are large and nice, but ours was full of dog waste and flies. The laundry facilities were not working and we were told by others in the park they hadn't been for a very long time. We had to drive 15 miles to a laundromat. Its a shame because the park has a lot of potential and is great for families. - jimni5er

We were here with a group in the group area. The campground surroundings are still being upgraded, some with new construction. The mini golf was about 80% completed and there are plans to build a water park behind the hill of the camping area, as the area has been cleared and grubbed for survey staking. What a waste of natural surroundings! This is a large nice campground, but I fear it will be less desirable if they complete the water park, more noise and traffic congestion! Let Clear Lake be the destination and leave this campground as the accommodations. - Coastalview

This park could be great. It has access to the lake and wine country. We called for a reservation and had to call twice before getting an answer. The desk girls (combination hotel clerks/RV park/ convenience store cashiers) were not very helpful. They gave us the door code for the showers but did not tell us that there is a different code for the laundry and that the only access to a bathroom was through a card key locked door into the "workout room". Without the key there is no access to the bathroom. The pad was level. The casino was extremely smoky. This is more of just an overnight stay as there are limited amenities and the staff was not helpful. I didn't even unhook from the truck, just ran my stabs down and had dinner in my kitchen and used my bathroom. - samchev

Yes, this is casino camp group, so typically I don't expect much, but this was far below our expectations. The sites are fairly level, so that's good. The check in was simple and quick, but that's about where it ends. There was a laundry room, but the soap vending machines were empty. Only one washer and dryer worked. There was one co-ed toilet. They had a little store you could walk to, but they didn't sell milk in any form. I have no idea where the marina was. Another good thing was that since there were only about four of us in the park. You could just park anywhere and take an extra space for your tow vehicle. Also, this is listed at a Good Sam park, but when I presented my card I was told they only honored Good Sam on weekends. That was a new one for us. - Grammajamma

I believe only sites 1-33 have cable TV and telephone. If you are not a bass fisherman, I would avoid this large parking lot RV park. When I went to complain about drunk fishermen, front desk staff stated bass fishermen are KVC's bread and butter so employees advised to allow them their way. No one oversees the RV park. Prominent signs direct boat trailers to be parked in lot *adjacent* to RV park but people park their boats throughout the RV spaces so access to hookups is limited. As previous reviewer stated, people take up 2 or even 3 sites per rig limiting access to available sites. Free-for-all RV park where near anything seems to be acceptable to management. Over the years I have observed several people beating their dogs, with many others drunk and looking for a fight. Not safe or comfortable to walk around in the evening when often times people are loud and unruly. Cheap place to stay, yes but many trades to save money. Laundromat this year, only 2 out of 3 washers are working and 1 out of 3 dryers. Cafe prices have gone up in recent years, but the food has been reliable and is convenient. Business in the area brings me here the last few years. Over that time I have stayed at this park perhaps 50 days. Events previously described are part of a typical visit. I would not stay here for a family vacation. - Cheryl S

This was to have been a nice relaxing stay of 11 nights,in a lake view site, booked well in advance. After a very twisty drive from the I5, we arrive to a campsite that is old and tired, not a resort! Sites are all dirt, not level and very dusty, no grass as shown on the website photos. The photos must be from years ago. It would have been a huge challenge to maneuver our 35' RV into the site we reserved, leaving little to no room for our 3 slides, there were no other sites that we would have remotely reconsidered. We had to forfeit our deposit of $270.00 USD ($353.00 CDN) as the owner was not prepared to refund any part of our deposit! Overall the park was a huge disappointment and dealing with the management was even worse! Some attempt to negotiate a partial refund would have gone a long way toward not sending in this review! We would never recommend this park. - Mr and Mrs P

Very tight for big RVs, I had a 40 ft not much room between rigs. All sights were dirt, and hard to level.
Dog were welcome but $5. a night and not place for dogs to run that were fenced. This area has had many fires. Sign coming in said no open fires allowed but at night every one had open fires very scary. Very noisy up tell about 2 am. Since we were with a group of RVs had a good time, but won't go back. My wife and I are older, this might be great for the young family's. - Crbus

Older park that has it all, but it's dated. Sites are tight, close, and not too level. Staff was very nice. Need to drive through the park to check in, then back up the hill to a tight sight. Power was good, wifi was crowded (slow), garbage overflowed by Sunday morning. Staff does NOT enforce the rules, Party's & fires go on all night. Too hard to get here, too dirty & noisy, we won't come back. 40' Bus. - Tredguy

The rate reflects a $2 per day senior discount. Unfortunately, we did not have great experiences at this otherwise very nice California State Park. The park setting on Clear Lake is very pleasant and pretty. Just a note on the lake: when we were there the lake was very pretty; however, the lake can get very significant algae blooms and can be pretty ugly and smelly. The park is large with many campsites and day-use areas. When we were there only one area was open. There are no hook-ups at the park, but there is a dump station. Our Verizon phone and data card worked well in the park with 4G service. There are nice board walks and some trails in the park. There were a lot of people fishing. A warning: the lake is heavily contaminated with mercury. I would never eat any fish out of the lake. Our experience was not good because of fellow campers. We had reserved a site ahead of time. Check in was easy. When we went to our assigned site the problems started. Two sites over was a camper with a very loud “contractor” generator running and a junked up site. We knew that we could not live with that so we went back to the entrance booth and asked to change sites. They were happy to do so, so we found a site far away from our first site – much better. Unfortunately, there was a large group that set up a few sites down. They partied and made noise until well into the night. So, a very nice park experience was very significantly marred by other campers. We are not for sure if these are locals or what the problem is, but apparently this park gets a lot of party groups. We were there on a weekend. Perhaps it would be better during the week. However, we will probably not visit this park again because of the folks that seem to frequent this park. - TheJim

The park is wonderful. Big family gatherings with loud television all day and shouting to each-other. They seem to "own" the place. However silence after 10 p.m. The regulations are quite clear, but one cannot complain anywhere as everything was closed even during this busy season. We were lucky to had a reserved site rather far from the crowd, who prefer the sites on the lake side. We had enough shadow. We would not stay here again due to the nuisance of other campers, who react rather rude when I made a remark about their TV. - Alessandro

"Run, don't walk" away from this park! First, they only had 50 amp plug sites available so had to buy an 50/30 amp adapter to get power...They have no cable TV hook ups either and when I went to the office to ask about it I was told quite rudely by the Manager, "We have wifi, no cable". (the wifi was s-l-o-w) I complained that along with the adapter, the pet fee and lack of cable that I would rather have stayed somewhere else the manager said she thought that would be a good idea! If "older style" means toilets that come with instructions to get them to flush without clogging and showers that are missing lots of tile and have water saver heads with very little pressure (that the toilets more than compensate for in multiple flushes) then yes -it is older style. What little asphalt is left on the roads has more potholes than smooth spots and the full time residents do little to make the park appealing. Overall, the worst park we've ever stayed in. - rocket11

Stay away from this one. Staying here was a Big mistake! My son, daughter-in-law, and spouse said it would make a good horror movie. The bathroom was covered in black widows and spider webs. There was no hot water available if you dared take a shower. Water was rusty and smelled something fierce. The manager was laying in the front seat of his maybe 1975 Class C with cardboard covering broken windows. The fence surrounding the park was a falling down paint bare picket like you might find in an old cemetery in a horror movie. If we had not paid in advance and arrived at 10:00 pm we would never had stayed. Traffic noise was bad too!!! Stay anywhere but Windsorland RV !!!! - DigMyPast
Jul 2012 - $30.00
All in all a nice stay. Very reasonable price. They WON'T be closing for at least another year or two. Clean park: has been spruced up from 2 years ago. Town of Windsor square is across the street (easy walk) and has restaurants, shops, concerts and movies in the square on Tuesday and Thursday nights. Also has a farmers market on Thursdays. Drawbacks are: no hot water in restrooms (we used our own), no cable TV, (but DOES have WiFi), and located next to Hwy 101. Nice people and quiet at night. Would definitely stay here again. - frenchman

The park is fairly clean, though the full-time camper section is a bit run-down looking. The manager was very nice and friendly, but the rest of the staff didn't go out of their way to assist. Our spot was under some nice trees that provided shade on hot days, but it was also immediately next to a busy road (River Road). The traffic was fairly loud throughout the day and quieted at night. Many of the RV spots were in a large parking lot with no trees, and very close together. The tent camping spots were all in dirt and didn't look appealing at all. There is access to the river, though it was down some steep dirt paths. This could be a lovely property, but needs some attention. Try to get an "R" site - these back to the river. - sail2blue

This is the only Good Sam park in the Russian River Valley and they offer Good Sam Discounts (10% off!) The restrooms were clean and there is access to a fantastic private beach. River Bend recently bought Hilton Family Campground, so the resort is better than ever. With an old fashioned arcade, General Store, cabins, horseshoe pits, basketball court, and an outdoor theater that plays kids movies at night. Also, on Saturdays in the summer there is free face painting and karaoke! The staff was very friendly and helpful. - User737

I would have rated this park a little lower If not for having one of the nicest sites, R15 backing up to the river.
There are mostly long term campers there while I was there May 24th.
They were not that busy but told me all the had for my 35ft MH was full service even though I said a 30 amp without sewer would work ( to keep cost down ? )
I thought the grout in the tile stalls were green, but at a closer look I noticed it was mold.
I would not stay here again. - twowoofs
