Not my first choice. The only other park in this area was full. If I had seen the showers and restrooms first I would have kept on going. Didn't stay long because we need decent showers. The office was closed the entire time we were here. Some guy came around and swiped our card on his I phone. I wasn't comfortable with this. The worst thing was how dirty the restrooms and showers were. I've seen bad, but this was a health hazard. There is NO WIFI or cable. We need get a couple of channels OTA but not too good. I would not recommend this park. - JC69

I really don't know what to say---the pool has not been in service for years---the golf course is gone--there is no merchandise in the store. BUT I really like the park----very green-- a lot of trees and lawn. We were very comfortable. The access off the freeway is long but worth it. It would be a great park to try to build up again. I will stay again every chance I get. - Cameorover

Very disappointing park given its name and the golf resort. The sites are plenty big enough for rigs of all sizes, but it seems that maintenance is way behind schedule. The weeds are abundant and the cobwebs suggest that not too many folks stay here. The 9-hole golf course has not had any irrigation for a long time and it is not playable. The I-5 is visible but not a significant noise problem. The location of this park closer to Sacramento than Redding and south of Corning should make it desireable for many heading south from Oregon, or from SoCal folks going north who made it through Sac and need a resting place. However, new management, money and/or some promoting of this park may be needed to make it work in the long run. I hope that this place gets turned around. I want to return. - exportman

Mostly permanent residents. Didn't use facilities so can't comment. The park in general was a little run down. But quick entry on and off to highway. Site was tight for a 40 ft RV. - littlegeneral

We travel in a 40' fifth wheel pulled by a semi, a total of 65' and I am happy any time I can find an overnight stay that has easy access. It was a bit tight maneuvering through the park but they had a pull thru site for us that was easy to get into and out of.
The showers were badly in need of updating and cleaning. The park seemed a bit run-down with mostly permanent residents. There was a field next to the park where we walked the dog.
I had called ahead for a reservation and was glad I did. They were turning people away when we arrived and we got the last spot.
The park was quiet, the staff was friendly, and everything worked. - blz

We had a medical emergency which necessitated our stay at this park. The staff has been more than helpful and the residents we have had contact with have been kind and helpful also. This is not a park we would have normally elected to stay for a long period of time in, but it has proven to be a blessing to us. The rate quoted is for a stay that lasted more than a month. The site is level, a pull thru and we have 30 amp. There are 50 amp sites as well. We are near a truck stop and I-5 but the noise has not been a problem. We are 16 miles from the city of Woodland. This would be a great overnight stay. - shovelguy

I have reviewed this park before (a year ago) and what a huge improvement. Stayed here this past weekend for our annual White Water river rafting weekend with a huge group of friends and noticed big changes at this camp site. The previous hosts are gone and have been replaced by a very capable, efficient and friendly couple who are extremely customer service orientated and professional . They are visible all the time, making patrols around the camp site, reprimanding pet owners who do not pick up after their dogs and maintaining order in this beautiful place. The camp site was remarkably tidy and order prevailed this time round (no rowdy campers making noise till the early hours, no cussing , use of illegal drugs etc which occurred a year ago). The county of Yolo has now built a check-in office and a shop where one can get fire wood and ice. This is a nice useful addition to the camp site. There are also plenty of recycle bins. The sites are lovely with green lawns and many trees for shade. The river was especially welcome with temps in the 100's . The river's level was quite a bit higher and this made today's white water rafting even more fun than usual. I have given this camp site a 9 this time around after all the improvements. If it had sites with partial /full hook ups it would score a round 10. Well worth it. - AistreamFlightRN

Camped here for the first time for 3 nights. It is the closest Camp ground to where the Cache Canyon River Rafting and another white water rafting companies are located. (The purpose of my trip). You basically arrive and drive directly to the camp site that you have booked via Email/ telephone with a women at Yolo County offices.The camp host then comes to sign you in and give you a receipt. There was no one posted at the gate and I get the feeling that many people come for the day and do not pay at all. The camp site itself is located in a beautiful area off Highway 16, just 6 miles west of Rumsey, CA. The Cache Creek casino and resort is not that far away either. The location is gorgeous and the camp site has many nice trees and lots of shade. There are NO hookups at this campsite so dry camping is the order of the day. There are many taps available to fill up your fresh water tanks though and a good dump station nearby (oddly located in the middle of the camp site though). I did not see any showers in the rest rooms and the rest rooms looked like they needed to be cleaned more regularly. I was at the campsite during a very busy summer weekend and the camp site was full so it stands to reason that the rest rooms would get dirty quickly. It also came to my attention that there is only one camp host for this whole camp site (quite a responsibility actually). A sign is posted advertising for another Camp host so this might be you! As for the camp host (and his female significant other), they were pleasant enough on the first day I arrived , however on day two the host's wife/ significant other appeared severely intoxicated while riding along with her man on the golf cart. This is worrisome as camp hosts have the responsibility of ensuring that the camp runs smoothly and maintain order when people get out of line. As as feared, there was very little oversight of the camp site by the camp hosts. Unfortunately the Friday and Saturday nights and afternoons were both marred by noisy, obnoxious camping groups who drank alcohol non stop and smoked pot openly in front of their children. The foul language and cussing was very unpleasant as well, and showed a lack of any culture of these individuals. The river is at the bottom of the camp site and there is a small "beach" however this was pretty full over the weekend. If I camp here again, it will be during the week when the camp site is peaceful or I will book sites that are tucked away from the crowds (sites 38, 40 and 42 are good choices). I give this camp site a 7 because of poor/ no host oversight and host inebriation, dirty restrooms and a dump station in the middle of the camp ground. As far as natural beauty though, it would score a 10. Not that far from the Bay area either and the white water rafting is a great fun activity for the whole family or a group of friends. - AistreamFlightRN

It is a gravel parking lot with hookup panels to separate spaces.
You have to park your vehicle in front of your RV, unless there is no neighbor and then you can park it on side.
There was a Mexican dance I think they said going on. It was loud, but was ok once in Motorhome and then it was over by 9pm.
It is great for anyone working or participating at the grounds or just a one nighter, but a little over priced for what is given/offered. - Victoria Grace

Plain flat dirt with full hookups. Some traffic noise if there is something going on at the fair grounds but very convenient for an over night stay, what we did, or if you are visiting. There is no restrooms but a great place to run/walk your dog. We had a nice pull through with lots of space for our 35ft rv and toad. We would stay again, just don't expect a lot and you will be fine. - G Hall

Level, dirt parking lot next to fairgrounds. No services, no table - but 50 amp power, water and sewer all functional and area was fairly clean. It is a little pricey for what you get, but it was very convenient to visit family in Woodland and no other choices. Plenty big and roomy for the biggest rigs. Check out for events - we experienced a car show and quite the noise for one evening until midnight. No worries about security. Would stay again if needing to be in Woodland . . . . simply no other options without going further out. You can make reservations on line; or on site with an "iron ranger". First come first served sites, even with reservation . They do come around and check if you've paid! - subaru

Nice place to stay. Off the freeway and quiet. More permanent homes in the park. Space sufficient for our rig. - DRBurns

Run down, old park. Mostly permanent tenants. Pull-through very good. Showers and toilets seemed clean, but hard to tell what with the excessive corrosion and decay. No frills, no extras. Marginally good for a single night's stay. No credit cards accepted. Friendly and helpful office staff. Wi-Fi didn't work, and outside tech service may have resolved it, but I was unwilling to wait on hold for more than 20 min. - LeeCA

We stayed for one night. Cost included 10% tax. A park with the vast majority permanents. Only about 6 spots for 'passer throughs'. People in office fantastic, but their last day is April 1, 2015. They were 'fired' after being there for over five years because the owner hired a 'property managment' company, and that company want to bring in 'their own people'. We'll see what the new people are like. The long term people's units are so-so. They seem like nice people. Space paved, perfectly level. Only used water and electric, but locations perfect, didn't have to unhook our car or use 'long hoses'. We would stay here again. Yes, the rear end of the coach 'scrapes' the pavement because of the sharp dip at the driveway as you enter and leave the park, but we will put up with it. - Kalama Traveler

This could be a GREAT park in that it surrounds a nice size lake for fishing and kayaking/peddle boating. It is pretty rundown though and it does not seem like they are trying to improve it like many of the other TT parks we have been to lately.
Our camping site was level with good 30amp power, water, and shade. - Bay Area Early retirees

First impressions: quieter than I thought it would be. Arrived on Thursday and was lucky to get a perfect spot. Kids enjoyed the lake (fishing, paddle boating and swimming). Obviously was an older campground that is being improved. No pool, but can swim in lake. No sewer hookups where we parked. Not really a destination, but a pass through, unless you live in Sacramento. - Cautiously Optimistic

Like many other Thousand Trails parks, this one needs a lot of maintenance. The putt-putt course is basically unplayable, the septic system that serves the full-hookups section is undersized or just broken and full-hookups sites can only dump every other day, all of the buildings show major signs of age and wear. However, we had fun here. A stroll around the lake is pleasant. There are two playground -- both very minimal and in need of repair -- but out kids enjoyed them. The family clubhouse has been updated and is nice and clean. We'd stay again, but good glory I wish they'd fix the issue with the full hookups sites. - JPen365

This is a former State Park that was taken over by the city of Colusa when it was to be closed by the State a few years ago. Thanks to the city it was saved. We gave it a positive review when we stayed here a few years ago. Some things have changed and not for the positive. One glaring change is the cost to stay. Because of the weather, we chose an electric site rather than dry camping. By chance we chose a site with 50 amps. I was shocked when I went up to pay and saw that the rate was $45 for a 50 amp electric and water-no sewer! That is ridiculous! We had planned on staying four nights, but just stayed two to visit the wildlife refuges in the area. The park is also clearly deteriorating. The camp host was very friendly, but his site, which is the first thing you see when you enter the park, is totally trashed. Also, there is some type of very long-term setup in the dry camping area of the park that is also very trashy. There were lots of feral cats and free-range dogs around. Unfortunately, it no longer had that nice friendly and safe feel to it. For the electric sites, about the longest rig that could get in would be 28 feet. Our Verizon voice and data worked well. We had to use our small portable dish for satellite because of the tree cover. Because of the cost and the feel, we would likely not stay here again. - TheJim

Cute, quaint, quiet, clean, small park. Only about 15 numbered spots, then a parking lot for another 15 or so rigs. Spots are spacious with nice room in between, lots of grass, nice cement table/benches but no fire ring. No big rigs in numbered spots, maybe in parking lot. No hookups, but running water available. Simple potties, no toilet seats, but clean. Great place to pedal around on your bike. Lots of dog walking occurs around park. - Duran

The rate reflects a $2 senior discount. This is a California State Recreation Area now being managed by the city of Colusa. The prior review is unfair since the reviewer did not even stay at the park. There are 15 numbered sites with a rate of $28 per night. However, there is a big parking lot with many sites that are $13 per night. The only differences are grills and picnic tables for the numbered sites. If staying here again, we would probably stay at the unnumbered sites and pay half price. The campground is very nice and very well kept up in this very tidy town of Colusa. You can think of it more like a very nice city park, as that is how it is used by the locals. While staying we were treated to all types of interesting events including the local fire volunteers practicing. If feels very safe with highway patrol, sheriff, and local police coming through quite often. It is fairly quiet but with some highway noise noticeable at night, but not bad. There is a short nature trail but there are miles and miles of levees for hiking or biking. The small town has a decent grocery store. The park has a host that very enthusiastically welcomed us and offered to help. This is a great place to stay while visiting the various wonderful wildlife areas in the area. We found one of the sites with satellite access. Our Verizon cell phone and data card worked well. We would not hesitate to recommend this nice campground and will definitely stay here again. - TheJim

Good park at north end of the lake. There is a boat ramp and area to leave boats tied along shoreline. There is a marina, restaurant and bar also at the resort. Swimming was available down from the sites and we took our boat out across the lake to a better beach. Lake is beautiful and warm in the summer months. We are planning a trip back in the fall. - kazmir
