This park is also known as River Bend. One is for tents and another is for RV's according to the owner. Water in the showers was warm and owner said she would tell her husband about it. FYI, no ATT service in the RV area. If you're Xfinity customer there was great free wifi available. Sites abut the highway so some road noise. In short nice park, but expected more for the price point charged. - hmthomas1

River access was nice, but WAY too much money for what you get! Also seemed to be more of a "full time" campground than a vacation spot. Has a lot of folks living here and it was very noisy. It's right on a busy road, so lots of traffic noise too. Also very crowded. - frenchman

Crowded, noisy. Way over priced for what you get. Friendly hosts, but the crowd seemed like a bunch of squatters looking for a free meal. Did like the river being close, but had a hard time enjoying it. - mountainsurfer

Older, nice RV park. Has lots of trees, a very nice staff and is located close to wine country. Would stay here again. - rval

If you don't expect much, then you will really like Mirabel Campground on the Russian River. There are no amenities, and a lot of the RVs there are very old and run down. But you are camping in and amongst giant redwoods and the price is hard to beat. The $15. above is based upon a weekly rate with one dog. Portions of the park can be kind of rowdy on the weekends, but we were in an area that was definitely more secluded. The electricity system is very old and we were told we could not use AC. That coupled with no cable and no Wi-Fi caused us to leave after 4 weeks. Prepare to need to sweep the roof of your rig at least once a week, as lots of dirt constantly reigns down from the huge trees. The park is very well located in that it is half way between Guerneville and 101 with SF being about 60 miles away. The manager was a rather crusty lady who certainly did not mince words or go out of her with with customer service. We would stay there again for a short time. - acephx

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

The $44 rate includes tax. This park is located on the Russian River near many wineries. A great location to go wine tasting. The park is interesting in that there are mostly Full-timers who take up the full hookup spots. And there is a "tent city" behind the park on the 1/4 mile or so trail to the river and small "stony" beach. Our back-in site with electric & water only was spacious with a large grassy area, picnic table & fire pit. WiFi was available at a cost. It did have a drawback in that it backed up to the busy River Rd. While it was uphill to the road, it was still noisy. The restrooms & showers were clean, however they did show their age. - Michael Kibler

We stayed here midweek and we had the park basically to ourselves, minus the three apparent full timers. For $43 I would expect there to be a dump on site. Be aware...there is NO sewage dump station. Very clean, used showers because there is no dump and those were clean with hot water. It is within walking distance from the town. Very quiet at night despite the proximity to Neely Rd. Was here three days before we saw the park managers, good thing we didn't need anything. - pamandtina

This park is in a beautiful natural setting along the Russian River. It allows tents, and so was a good fit for us, traveling in a teardrop. However the small staff is just overwhelmed. Bathrooms are similar to what you would find in a campground, not RV park, w/cement floors and basic facilities. Bring your own toilet paper. The RV sites have 30 amp plus water, no sewer that I saw. They are arranged around two circular glades surrounded by trees, many of them lovely redwoods. Sites 1 thru 5 look really nice and are shady. All except 1a are back-in. The first night we stayed happened to be the beginning of BeerFest weekend, and every campsite was thronged with crowds of joyfully inebriated young men, who celebrated 'til the wee hours. However, people were courteous enough. After the weekend, the park emptied out, and during most of the week we were nearly alone in the spectacular setting. Campers returned the following weekend but it was much quieter. We were told that the park may be changing hands. We will be returning as it is a perfect fit for us with a daughter living within walking distance. It would be great if someone could take this diamond in the rough and shine it up! Note: although the park borders the Russian River, those areas appear to be tent campsites, and actual access to the riverbank is a little tricky. Much easier and probably safer to walk across the pedestrian bridge and go to Johnson Beach on the other side of the river, where there is a lovely and child friendly area for swimming or kayaking. - Grants Girl

It is a tight squeeze for a big rig. Just a grassy area and some large trees. No satellite because of the trees. Needs to be updated. Quiet and close to town. Very dangerous getting out because of the blind curve. - Badge

"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

This park is filled with perm residents. Only have a couple of daily spots. Felt like a poor man's monthly stay. Lots of talking and visiting by the locals. Finally cut off about 11 PM. Felt safe and people were friendly. Site was level. Streets were asphalt but not maintained last 20 years. Do not know if you can do better locally or not. We were overnight only. - Sir_Charles395

The staff was excellent! The park seemed brand new and was very well maintained. Sites were quite varied, I suspect many sites/sections are being upgraded as there were a mixture of gravel and concrete sites. Be careful of the site you get, one section with new concrete pads was far from level and we were forced to move. We ended up in a pull through site where rigs were door facing door, without much space between. Look before you park, but stay away from the fence (highway noise) at the far end, up the hill. Despite these issues, we were surprised by the fact that there were many empty sites in prime snowbird season. It is really a great location. - BMonk

We had planned to stay here for 2 weeks but ended up asking for our money back. We did stay 3 nights. This park has mostly long term tenants in the back half (and may be great for them), but for the average RV customer it does not feel right. As a result there was constant traffic in and out of the park, no speed control. We asked "Do you have full hookups" before we booked and they had NO TV at all! They said they had Wi-Fi but most of the time we were there the Wi-Fi was a 1 Mbps and could barely do email; sometimes we could not connect at all. The park is basically a gravel lot with connection posts and they pack you in next to each other. This is not a vacation spot.
I will say this, I gave them a 3 and not a 1 because the people in the office were always nice when we went in to complain. The sign says they have a water slide but the water slide has not been there in some time. - Nicole Cook

This is a beautiful park. Wide spaces and lovely views. Only 2 spots right on the river for RVs. We had PA discount, but thought the full price of $ 63 was high, and charging for showers (meters) was unnecessary. - Rosanne

This was not our first trip to Casini Ranch. You cannot beat the location, it is on a working ranch between the Russian River and pastures of cows, horses and other livestock. You feel like you are on a ranch when you are here. They have over 200 sites but the sites are not right next to each other, some sites are very private. They have 40+ channels of TV, very good wifi, a store on the property and a laundry facility. The staff we interacted with were very friendly.
We have been to several RV parks from Fairbanks Alaska to Northern California. Casini Ranch is a jewel, we have only seen 2 other parks that can offer the same ambience and they are much smaller and not located in such an optimal location. If that were not enough the activities provided at the park really make it exceptional, the Hay Ride and the bon Fire on the beach are both events not to miss. - Nicole Cook

We booked a stay for one night at Casini Ranch Family Campground. The appeal of this campground is the beauty of the surrounding area--the Russian River with its various activities, the solitude not found in less rural settings, and the quaintness of nearby towns Jenner and Monte Rio.
Check-in went smoothly albeit somewhat slowly. When we did make it to our camp spot, service personnel were working feverishly to restore electricity to the campground that had apparently been out for some time after the Labor Day holiday. Within 30 minutes of our arrival, the electrical issue was solved.
The premium full hookup sites are long enough for most motorhomes and trailers, but the width could be improved. With three slide-outs, our 5th wheel leveling legs were partially on gravel and partially on the cement pad. A nice fire pit accompanies each campsite. We did not use the cable television hookup, opting for satellite dish use. The campground's wi-fi, while a bit slow, is free for one day's use; after that you'll have to pay. Verizon cell signal is very good. Also, as others have noted this campground can be quite dusty.
Casini Ranch Campground is probably much better for a multiple day stay since getting to it off Highway 101 is definitely off the beaten path. The River Road route to the campground is scenic as is the occasional glimpses of the Russian River. This campground might be worth another visit if we plan on staying more than one day. - Professor Ken

This was our third stay at this park. Very close to the ocean, nice walk down to the Russian River. 30 amp power, but sewer included. We use this as our week between stays at Thousand Trails Russian River and TT Morgan Hills and really enjoy our 'quiet' week here. Rate reflects our $0/night cost under ROD. - PugetSound
Sep 2014 - $1.00
This is a private membership park, rate was $0 under ROD. Probably the cleanest membership park we have experienced. Although not new, everything seemed to be clean and well maintained. I have a volt meter by the door and never experienced any power problems like some have mentioned. We stayed 4 days and used the park to explore both North and South on the coast. The only reason I have for not rating it a 10 is the lack of a swimming pool although they do have swimming access in the river. - bdpreece
Sep 2014 - $1.00
Rate reflects $0 for ROD. We stayed here for a week, great access to the beach which is just a few miles away. We had no problem with the 30 amp power, it worked just fine with better than average voltage, no voltage drop was detected. The staff is very friendly and we really enjoy the area. The park itself is nothing special, but fit our needs. - simonsrf

No hook ups, no trailer dump. Wonderful sites, great beach. We were treated to a perfect sunset. Loved going to sleep hearing the sound of the surf. - Trekking

This campground is all about location. It is literally right on the beach. The sites are on sand, not level, they have a picnic table and fire ring. The bathrooms are fairly new and clean. If you want a shower, you have to go about five miles to the Bodega Dunes campground. Big rigs would have some problems getting into some of the sites. Our rate reflects a senior citizen discount. Site number 8 is the best of the best. We love this place and will continue to return whenever we can get a reservation. - Atnt Life Grand

In a large motorhome you have to park in the parking lot, for the same price as the actual spots. It was quiet and we hiked on the beach, undisturbed, with our dogs and again along the shore the next day. Not sure why the state won't let motorhomes park in the main parking lot at night. We live nearby so it was an ok stay for 1 night. We prefer Bodega Dunes but it was sold out. - mellie
Mar 2016 - $25.00
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

The very nice lady who was at the desk was unfamiliar with discounts, optimal parking spots for big rigs and the computer. She seldom works and apologized. It was frustrating for all of us. The park is being improved and a good location for Healdsburg. It is an attractive RV park and clean. Each site has a small grass area. - oldcarfun
Jun 2014 - $25.00
This park appears to be "open to the public" but it's really not a bad campground once all the day/ weekend users/picnikers go home. Actually turns into a regular campground then. Quiet. It is way overpriced for what you get, though. No cable; no wifi; no sewer. A couple of tight turns getting to the pull through sites and it looks like we'll have a tight turn getting out of our site but the sites are long enough for a dually and 40' fiver. I'm not sure how well exiting the campground will go since you're right on a curve and traffic moves rather quickly along Alexander Valley Road. - PennyPA
