17 Parks near Kelseyville, California
Apr 2013 - $26.00
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

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

Dirt sites, needed some leveling, but we enjoyed the camping experience, versus an asphalt parking lot. Lots of developed trees for shade. Wi-Fi and cable TV worked good. Swimming pool was heated. Lake access for fishing, a dock, and a boat ramp. Staff was friendly and helpful. Fire ring was delivered to our site upon request. Quiet at night. - zigzag

Island RV Park is located right on the shore of Clear Lake.
The park is most full of long term residents.
There are a few spots for those that drop in. We arrived without reservations for a one night stay and they had one open site.
The sites are narrow. Our 40 foot three slide RV had about two to three feet between our slides and our neighbors slides on both sides.
OK for the money in a scenic area, but we will look elsewhere in the future. - Navy RV Traveler

Not previously listed with RVParkReviews. So we took a chance. And got lucky. Nice quiet park, hookups were good but just 30 amp. We did not use the water or sewer. Very laid back park, lots of full timers. Out of 30 spaces only 5 were available when we arrived on a Monday afternoon. Cash or check only. NO credit cards accepted. Met the owners, very personable. They have a manager who comes around to sign you in once you pick your spot. Luckily at 39 feet we took space 39 and parked front facing the lake so we used an extension cord for the 30 amps. Worked out great. We would camp here again. - road glide

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

Reasonable rates at $20 a night. Basically a paved parking lot with hookups. It's OK for smaller RVs but for larger rigs the sites are too short. My 40' motorhome fit in a pull through length wise and width. No room for my toad so I parked it in the site next to me. Larger 5th wheels had the same issues and used two spaces. Facilities are clean and well maintained. I would stay here again. - Marv

Old, rundown and ill maintained RV park. Nearly all of the guests are permanent residents. There was only one other overnighter but many empty spaces. "The" 50 amp plug was not mounted in the breaker box on the pedestal but rather hanging below the box by its wires. Neither of the two pools are usable. The site is grass which is all dead; the picnic tables old and unsightly; and the speed-bumps old sections of pipe. It was quiet, however, even though there are many dogs in the trailer park next door. The Walmart in town is a better choice for a night's stay. - billj15

Overpriced at $42.50 per night and not a resort. A few small cabins are permanent residents. Lots of old rigs. Our 50 amp site turned out to be 30 amp. Management tries hard to please the customer, providing escort to big rigs, bringing a personal trash container, and offering every assistance. - goodspinach

Site was a dirt and grass almost level drive-through with picnic table, BBQ grill, and fire ring. Not all sites had tables or grills. One row had some cement pads for patios. Good cable TV and Wi-Fi. Laundry had 4 washers and 4 dryers. It cost $1.25 for the washer and $1.00 for the dryer. This park has a mini store and pools, but they were closed for the season. It also has a boat gas pump. Resort may be in its name, but it is not. We probably will not stay here again. - Onemoretrail

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

We arrived early Saturday afternoon on Labor Day weekend and was greeted by a gentleman that said not to worry about paying until we left. We did have reservations. We never did register. When we got ready to leave on Tuesday morning, still could not find a manager to pay. Rate on their website said $36 a day before Good Sam discount, so taped a check to managers door and left.
It was mentioned in previous reviews about "great cable and WIFI". The cable did not work and no one at the park could explain how to make it work. WIFI was sporadic. Since we did not register and receive any instructions, had to find the original gentleman and ask for the password. We were forced to use our "Hotspot" frequently to contact family.
Not sure what the schedule for trash pick up was, but the dumpster was overflowing with more trash stacked around the dumpster. The grounds were also filthy. Our poor "four-legged" baby came back from walks with numerous burrs.
We will not return. - vwbluestar

We had originally planned to stay here for a night on our way home from Oregon. However, once we were all setup in one of the lakefront sites, we both enjoyed the setting so much that we decided to stay an extra two days. The manager, absolutely went out of his way to make our stay comfortable.
On Friday night, they even put on a BBQ at their expense - for any of the registered guests. Only a handful of guests showed up, but I think that was because such gatherings are so uncommon these days that not everyone knew about it. Those of us who did attend had a great time. After dark, they even put on an outdoor kid-friendly movie! How often do you see that kind of staff involvement these days!
They're in the middle of doing some serious (expensive) upgrades to the park, and if the results end up being as good as the staff was friendly, it'll be amazing! We were in a 43 foot motorhome and had no problem backing into one of the waterfront sites. There was a nearby place to park our towed vehicle. - RV KEV

Small campground and sites are close, but the staff was very welcoming and friendly. Restrooms were clean, full hookups (50 amp), and quiet. We'd definitely visit here again. - tjdj1409

This is a charming trailer park with a few sites set aside for transients. The best spot, across the street and directly on the water, was already occupied so we got the next best, at the end of the front row, facing the lake. The remaining sites are further back, nestled among full-time trailers and 5th wheels. The owner is a nice guy. Our 25' Class C and towed fit fine but anything larger would be a tight fit. The space was level and covered with patchy grass/dirt and a mature tree. A picnic table was on site. The utility fixtures were serviceable but covered with cobwebs, a personal "ick" factor for me. The bathrooms and showers were too dimly lit to fully assess their condition. We chose to use the facilities in our rig. The laundry room and machines were serviceable. The permanent residents were friendly, unique characters who keep their dogs on-leash, picked up after them and avoided loud, noisy activities. The local Sheriff's office seemed acquainted with some of the residents. Their regular visits to the park, at least, kept troublemakers away. Our Passport America rate was $22/night including tax. - LM&TinView

As noted, this is a small park that cannot accommodate big rigs. When I pulled in for a one night stopover the personable manager, immediately flagged me down and told me my 27 foot (!) class A towing was too big for their loop and that I had to back out, which meant that, because of the angle, I had to unhook my tow. After some friendly discussion, we decided I might be able to make it through the loop after all, which we were then able to accomplish without much difficulty and without unhooking. All ended happily. I was assigned the only available spot, which happened to be the park's one true lakefront space, across the road from the park proper. The space has a beautiful view of the lake with a private pier and boat launch ramp within 20 feet, but only 20 amp electric and no sewer. Although I was easily able to connect with satellite TV at my lakefront spot, I think reception in the main park may be difficult because of the trees. I would return. - Pawticket

This is a very small park with mostly full-time residents. However, they are the friendliest people we've met. The owner is excellent and helps you navigate, or whatever you need. He cares enough to even have installed satellite hookups for both Dish and Direct - over and above in my opinion. Our site had a beautiful view of Clear lake and the mountains. Within 30 minutes of setting up, 5 residents had already come by to welcome us. If you are in the area (it's gorgeous), give yourself a treat and try to stay here. We stayed a month and considered longer. - bigbob7777

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
