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. We camped at River Bend Resort in a Motorhome.

We were here Memorial Day week-end,arrived Tuesday in a 36-foot RV and it was empty except for permanent residents. A day later literally hundreds of tents packed cheek by jowl, many to a single spot, looked like tent city..very few RVs. That said we very much liked this camp and its staff. It is an older park that has long-term units in the front in various states of decay but very nice, large, full service RV sites in the back on the river. Next door is The Pub, a funky small restaurant/bar with good food. If you are visiting the Guerneville area in an RV this is clearly THE place to stay. BTW there is a huge statue of Paul Bunyon in the playground. We camped at River Bend Resort in a Motorhome.

This campground is on the river, sort of. It has a 10' wide steep river access. It is difficult to walk anywhere from the park except the Diner/Bar next door. It is right on Highway 116 so you are never far from the road noise. The sites are ok, some are close together. There is a store in the park. We camped at River Bend Resort in a Motorhome.

It looks a little run down when you first pull in but the spaces in the back by the river are really nice. There is a little bit of noise from the road. You can walk to a pub that was featured on Food TV network Diner, drive-ins & dives. Rest rooms require a code, don't forget to get it when you check-in. I would come back. We camped at River Bend Resort in a Motorhome.

This park is on the Russian River. The park is split into long term and short term. The better views seem to be at the long term sites, though we could look down from our site R-10 and see the river. Our Verizon air card worked pretty well here. There is some cable TV service (about 20 stations) and our AT&T phones were better down the road a few miles. This is right in the middle of wine country, with many wineries to choose from if desired. There are picnic tables and fire rings at sites. There are trees, somewhat level gravel sites with some grass in between. There is playground equipment for children and a tall statue of Paul Bunyan. The Safeway store is about 4 miles west with decent selections. It is a nice park, just seems overpriced. The $43 dollars plus tax ended up being closer to $47 a night and that was with Good Sam discount! The countryside is beautiful and it is a bit cooler since it is 11 miles west of Hwy 101 and about 20 miles from the coast. We camped at River Bend Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

A family reunion brought us to this area which is close to Guerneville and the other vacation towns along the Russian River. The staff was friendly and helpful and overall the campground was okay. The cable TV worked well, but I had to go outside to the open area and sit at a picnic table with my laptop to get WiFi service, even though the manager said it worked at all the sites. There were many full-timers, which was fine, but the bathrooms were a bit shabby, so I skipped using their shower. If we were in the area and need to stay in an RV park, we would return to River Bend. We camped at River Bend Resort in a Motorhome.

Friendly staff and great location for visiting the CA wine country. Clean restrooms. Play ground for the kids. River access. We stayed here before and we will stay here again. It gets particularly busy on the weekend. We camped at River Bend Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed there for 3 months, so price reflects average daily rate. As others have said this is definitely not a resort. More like a campground. We didnt have any problem with road noise however we were further away the perhaps others. Same vicious dog that was previously was mentioned. Near the last few days there they moved to another site, but the dog was still there. It even got loose a couple of times. I would stay again if they made the dog owner get muzzle the Rottweiler. We camped at River Bend Resort in a Motorhome.

The office person answered all my questions and helped me find fun things to do. It was quiet, clean and I felt safe. It has an older part to park and a newer part. They were flooded out in January and I must say they did a fabulous job of making everything work for the 2006 season. I already made reservations to come back next year. Call Kelly or George and they will help you in any way they can. We camped at River Bend Resort in a Travel Trailer.
