This is an easy stopover park off I-5. We have been coming here for years when traveling from Southern California to Northern California. The park continues to deteriorate but is fine for one night with a big rig motor home and tow car. No need to unhook the car. Easy access for large fifth wheels as well. Prices keep going up but that is to be expected since there are so few parks along the I-5 corridor. Lot's of overnight travelers. Nice hosts. Will stay here again. - lmg
Site level, sorta close, but great for a 1 night stop. Very convenient, and not a lot of noise from the freeway. - Monger
Just off I-5 freeway but shielded by enough trees we really did not notice freeway. Also close to semi truck fueling station but again no real noise issue. Nothing fancy just a basic RV park. - User3612

We stay here quite often since our kids are living on base. It is not much more than a paved parking lot, but if you have a dog or dogs, it is great. There is a huge dog park right next to the FamCamp and our dog loves it there. The camp is within walking distance to the base movie theater and bowling center. There is also a nice brew pub within walking distance. - KathyK
Nice, small park with friendly staff. Reasonably level concrete pads, but ours had a sharp 3 inch lip from the gravel lead-in to the pad. Quite a bump getting in. Once in, the utilities are strong and base amenities are available nearby. - Twice Retired
We stayed here for the weekend. Nice camp. However he sewer smell was bad. Our site had a broken pipe and smelled awful. We taped it up which helped it. This is the only camp I seen for Lemoore Hanford area. And would stay here again. - Jmn
The Taachi Casino is an out-of-the way casino in central CA. You can park in their lot for no charge. It is well lit and patrolled by jitney cart security. They seem to welcome RVers. The only problem is that it is located in the middle of farmlands and there is nothing to do but gamble. We only stayed one night. The buffet was re-opened Mother's Day 2012 after total remodeling. They must have brought in a new chef because the food was excellent. I especially enjoyed the custom-made pasta dishes. My wife, who is a food snob, thought the buffet was more than acceptable. I, on the other hand, can eat anything and I loved it. - olygene
The huge parking lots had plenty of room for RVs with excellent lighting. Casino was nice, staff was wonderful with shuttle to and from the casino. No charge for 3 night's stay. But, the buffet in the casino was absolutely the worst we have ever encountered in any restaurant. Not only did the food look terribly, but it tasted worse. We understand why they had us pay first. We would stay in the RV lot again but don't eat the food! - Beas1979
Dirt lot behind lodge. Hookups are adequate but several large rigs at the same time will make close quarters. Some small trees narrow the sites. Town is close by. The large bright glow to the northeast is a solar steam plant providing steam to the many oil wells nearby. It's well worth the 5 mile drive to see the set up. - Bucky Beaver
The site we had was grassy but uneven. The fairground staff were friendly. The 20 dollars was a bit steep for what it was when I compare it to other fairgrounds we have been at for less money. Would not go the distance to get here again. - Rib
We had talked with the manager several times on the phone about staying here. We were told there were plenty of 50amp spaces available: several pull-throughs and we were to park where we liked. Upon arrival this turned out not to be the case. The pull-through sites are reserved for the "carnies" although there were no events going on. Only one other spot was available with 50amp and it was unlevel, under low hanging trees and looking out on the dumpsters. Both sides of that site were occupied by live-in campers with no pride in their surroundings. We opted to turn around and leave. (We ultimately did not stay here.) - blackbeauty
Great place to stop for a few days. Host was always making sure if we needed anything. - S9264

Camping in pull-thru sites on sand at this place. It is good for an overnight stay. There is easy access from the freeway and there are lots of fast food restaurants nearby. We had cable and a picnic table. Public restrooms were a long block hike away. - rolling homeless
Fine for overnight stay when passing through. Sandy and breezy just like the rest of this part of CA along I-5. Truckstops right there for fueling, etc. Quiet enough for sitting outside and sleeping at night. - 1947red
The park was close to a big truck stop but did not hear any noise from it. Sites were easy to access. Dog park was the best we've seen yet! If ever back in the area will stop by again! - RV-NCcamping
Small, very tight park. There is a wall around it but the traffic & train noise are still a big issue. Mostly permanent residents but reasonably clean except for the laundry room which could use a good scrubbing. The pool and hot tub looked clean. OK for a night [I stayed two] and a good price with PA. Would certainly not pay the $37 regular rate. - mockturtle
We called ahead to reserve one of the very few pull-thru's so we could leave the toad attached for a quick morning getaway. Upon seeing the site, I realized that the layout of the park would prohibit me from getting into the site with the car attached. Additionally, the space turned out to be too short to reattach the car to our 37' coach once in the site. This is not an acceptable overnight stop for us. It would be ok for a multi-day stop. The largest back-ins have 38' pads, with room at most to have the back of the rig over the grass median, if that's permitted. Train & 18 wheeler noise were quite pronounced during the late afternoon, but subsided at night. - biosensai
Passport America rate. Nice park for an overnight stay, although it looks like there are a number of workers here long term. Nice, tidy park. We called a couple of days ahead and said we would prefer a pull-through. The person we spoke to said they were really full but he would see what he could do. When we showed up he did have a pull-through for us. (They only have 3, and one is very short.) Check in was easy; didn't even have to fill out any paperwork. Streets and sites are kind of tight but manageable. - Ray Z
There was no internet (Wi-Fi or modem) no cable TV but we could pick up channels with antenna. There were some full-timers with shabby sites. Our site was not close to level. This park is definitely over priced. - BC Traveler
Good overnight stop. Only thing is: there are two rows that you can't pull out of, since the road is blocked. So you have to either back out, or pull straight across though another site to get out. They have lots of permanent residents with lots of children but I must say it is pretty clean. Yes, we would come back as it's convenient to Freeway: SR99. - RV Roving Seeker
If you park in the first row you may have to back out from your pull through spot, because at the time we were here, the road out was blocked off. Worst floor plan for a restroom/shower we have seen. No area to dress, undress or dry off without being exposed to the outside if someone opens the door. Two of the dryers in the laundry were not working (which management knew about), and did not have out of order signs on them. - paxton
Small, campground north of Visalia, with predominantly permanent residents. Only 30 amp service and our 32 foot motorhome with tow barely fit into one of their pull through sites. Could not connect sewer hose because of small pull through size. Located right next to Hwy 99 so expect alot of road noise. Facilities are primitive and in disrepair. Pass on this one and head north to the next major town. - Happy G
Nice, quick park off the freeway. Dirt roads and tall trees. There is freeway noise. It's a good overnight place. Friendly staff. - mycelia
Well not stay here ever! The park is filled with out of date registration RVs some have 1996 tags. Not one friendly camper said hi. This park could be nice if cleaned out. It would take many tow trucks to move the broken down RVs. - titanium
Quiet park with level pull thru sites, utilities were good- the exception being the wifi. An hour per device and once logged on, the hour starts and that is it. They are working hard to keep the grass green during this long drought period. Trees offered shade, but you need to pay attention to where your dish needs to point for sat service. The park was very quiet at night. - ronboett
The owners of this pretty park go out of their way to make your stay a nice one. Each site is cleaned and raked after each visit. The park is well maintained and spotlessly clean. Good cable. We always stay here when in the area. - johnanann
This is an acceptable, average overnight stop, but I wouldn't want to stay here long term. The park has limited facilities, narrow gravel streets, and short gravel sites that barely accommodated my 40 ft MH. I had to disconnect the towed vehicle because it stuck out into the road. When I called ahead with the specs of my MH and toad, the person assured me the site was adequate. In short, this park is typical of 1970s or 1980s construction. It is also over priced when compared to other, newer resort style parks, some of which charge less. I saw several trailers and fifth wheels that appear to be full time residents. - Ramblin Roy
This is a mobile home community but with RV sites mixed in. Each site is level, concrete with adequate parking. We were placed in Space #1, next to the street, with a thick hedge separating the grounds from the street. When we started hookup the 50A outlet/breaker wasn't working and before I finished with setup and connecting utilities the staff had replaced the breaker. The staff is super friendly and helpful. Amenities are clean and well maintained. Shopping and restaurants are minutes away. We based here for access to Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks. The noise from the surrounding neighborhood brought the rating down a bit but this is a nice place to stay and everyone is friendly. This CG is a pleasant surprise and we would return when in the area again. - SilverBear
A great location with an almost rural feel. Secure and comfortable. Staff was wonderful and accommodating. We were running late and called. Not to worry! The park's annual picnic/barbeque was the next day (Saturday). Sadly, we could not stay for it - places to go - people to see farther north! - arascal
Mobile Home park with RV sites in town, a few miles from Hiway 99. Easy to get to and close to shopping and restaurants. Paved streets with grass between sites. Power, water, and cell (AT&T) were good. Park is a good place for a short stay, but not a destination. We would camp here again in our motorhome. - kmgulf
We stayed 1 night while driving north. Friendly and helpful staff. Road is paved, site was on grass/dirt and somewhat level, long enough for 5er & truck and wide enough for slideout and awning. Hookups are very basic and working. WiFi was available, not fast and cutting out. Restrooms are there but I would not use them, look old, are old and could be way cleaner. Constant noise from I-5, not really bad but always present. It looks like there are a few longtimers in this park and it definitely could use some updates. We stayed as it was time to stop and because we couldn't find an earlier RV Park. I will not return. - CamperAndy
I lived in a cabin here for over a year and saw this "resort" literally fall apart in that time. They advertise a lake and fishing, but the lake dried up and all the fish were left to die and rot. They advertise wifi, and only a select few sites within the short antenna range can get it. They advertise ckean restrooms and showers and they are not. They advertise pool and jacuzzi, but the jacuzzi has been broken since spring of 2013. Nothing gets repaired, except for the restaurant bar, and that's a lot of fun on weekends with all the obnoxious drunks allowed to run around the park disturbing residents. There is no security, and the assessment fees we as residents pay gets us nothing but our holding tanks pumped out, and that is even hit and miss. The only thing that kept me there was the fishing, and now all that is left of that is the rotting carcases that the grounds crew refused to clean up. If I had to pull in here for an emergency, I would probably use the rest stop across the highway. Stay away and maybe the owner will clean up the park and concentrate on the resort instead of the restaurant. - Kampzite
This park is far from a "Resort." Upside, it's pretty family friendly. Playground, pool/spa, basketball court, clubhouse. Downside, it's very run down. We were to get a shady grass spot, but most of the sites are on concrete with no trees, which could be VERY HOT in our Valley Summers. Also, there are no fire pits or BBQ's. Picnic tables are very scarce and "first come, first served." There is not even one table per site, which is kind of annoying. This park was definitely WAY over priced. - Tulare Family
This park is fine for an overnight. The big issue is that they charge for the shower. They have water for the grass, but charge to use the shower (go figure). There is a nice bike trail adjacent to the park. The six transient sites are on grass and depending when you get there, they will have water standing on them. The park uses self-registration even though the office may be staffed. The plus is the ease to get to the park and back on the road again. - A hitch and hop
The $20.00 price was based on the Passport America rate and was too much given the facilities. The sites were not level and with our slides out we were on the edge of our site on both sides. They had just topped all of their trees so there was absolutely no shade. The park has very limited amenities and was noisy due to the highway and train tracks. We would not stay there again. - mamestra
Right off freeway so great for one or two nights. Exit is onto the on ramp for freeway so can be risky. Grass sites, not very level. They water daily so site is always wet. Would probably not stay there again. No office, no service. - mesa campers
This is not a resort by any stretch of the imagination. You have to choose between having full hookups or having some space, both are the same price. We had reserved full hookups but our site was so narrow we couldn't put our awning out. There was no water in the river at all.
The gated entrance is a hassle since newcomers have to park right in front of it to register while current residents wait to drive through. The roads are narrow. The sites are set among large trees but our views were mostly of our neighbors' rigs. I am very well acquainted with the exterior decor of a certain brand of fifth wheel. It's quiet because most of the residents are permanent and work during the day. We didn't have a fire ring since they are not at the FHU sites. We didn't even have a picnic table since our site was a pull through and the only space for one is either in front or behind our rig. This park has a lot of potential if the owners would reconfigure the sites to provide space and FHU. Until then we won't return. - Fiesta on wheels
This is not a resort by any means. The river is dried up and alot of permanent residence. There are alot of run down buildings. This is not worth $40. A night and that is the winter rate. The trash is piled up. - Bear12
Alas, the ravages of No Water have descended upon this once fair campground leaving only a dried and dusty remnant. The river has been long gone for a few years leaving only a sand filled riverbed that plays host to off roaders who create dust clouds that make you cough and leave a coat of dust on everything. The park is filled with long term residents, long stored vehicles and boats, and it looks like it. The office carries no information about the surrounding area and its sightseeing features or history. The park is quiet unless the occasional drinking party is in session well past the quiet time. Lots of off leash dogs but none appeared to be aggressive. Crowded together sites, no real privacy (ie: trees, bushes between sites). I will not return to this park and I suggest you avoid making reservations here, also. - socalretiree
We stayed here based on tripadvisor reviews and were not disappointed. The park is spacious, spotlessly clean and grounds well-manicured. This is a very "dog" friendly park.
We went with a group of 4 RVers. They placed us next to each other, on cement pads, with a good bit of grass to lounge on. Among the many features was a wooden partition covering the view of the utilities of the RV parked next, nice not to be looking at someone's sewage drain hose. Water pressure was better than we had ever experience, and we had no issues with power hookups.
WIFI was very good!
The facilities were the best! Bathrooms were in great shape, very clean, and had a lot of space. Showers in particular were very nice. There is an adult only spa sitting on top of a hill, with a large gas fire pit. The spa was huge and secluded from view of the rest of the part, very nice. While we did not use the pool facilities, we could see others enjoying themselves. The pool was plenty large and well suited for families.
The desk staff was very polite and extremely helpful. Among other things, they provided a list of wineries, complete with various discounts to tastings. They knew the area and were full of good advice.
The park provides a number of dog run enclosures. There are disposal bags in a good number of places. Clearly they are very dog friendly. FYI: CA state parks are not dog friendly. We went to 3 and all had signs, "No Dogs allowed!" Their websites did not have this information. After a 40 minuted drive with our pup, we had to find alternative activities.
We are already looking forward to our next visit. - Vegas Trippers
Nice setup, space between sites. Staff is friendly and helpful.
Internet is by TengoInternet which seems to be at more and more campgrounds. It has a strong signal but is not good for anything other than downloading email. If you try to do more than 4 changes to Google maps , or a couple of changes to the GoodSam trip manager it will throttle you and you have to wait forever for the next website to download.
This is a comment about TengoInternet not about Wine Country. - calsteve
Very well maintained park. Large sites, nice clubhouse, pool, spa areas, workout room. Staff very friendly and helpful. Only negative is the typical high California price, price listed was non-premium with a 10% discount. - rvrrat520
Camp Roberts is a military famcamp RV park. You must have a military ID of some type to stay here. It is located on the Camp Roberts California National Guard base 13 miles north of Paso Robles. The base is in horrible, decrepit condition. Shameful, actually. I feel bad for our National Guardsmen. The RV park is about four miles into the base and very poorly signed. There is road construction that makes finding it even more difficult. There are No bathrooms. Full hookups, but they are all on telephone poles. Gravel and/or dirt sites which are pretty level. Absolutely nothing around for many miles in all directions. No grass or shade anywhere. If you are looking for a one night stop over with full hookups, for ten dollars it's a good deal. For anything else, skip it. - Don Geidel
We stayed here 3 nights. The staff is very friendly and nice. The location is great for wine tasting and touring Big Sur. The Wi-Fi is excellent. We were in site 21, which backs up to Hwy 101 and is very noisy. We slept with our air conditioner fan on to drown out the highway noise (worked perfectly). They have a lounge on property with happy hour specials and had a local wine tasting while we were there. - Longhorn Fan
Check in was very quick and the staff was friendly and helpful. The clubhouse, office, and store were all clean and spacious. There is a large pool and spa with a nice large patio. The only reason I gave this park less than a ten is because the lower priced spots (which we had) back right up against Hwy 101. This is a busy route that connects Southern California with Northern California. During the day it's tolerable, but at night it does disturb sleeping. The park itself is very nice, it's kept very clean. The only grass is in the dog run and horseshoe pit. This is great due to the drought here. The spots are all stamped concrete and very level. The main reason we stayed here was due to a special that has now expired. We would probably not stay here again due to the noise, and the fact that there are other parks not far away. - Patron48
Park is faultless. Spotlessly clean, many great amenities, level concrete pads. I cannot give it more than a 5 due to the racket from the highway out front. Made it a point to get a site farthest from the road but still was annoyed by the noise all night. Highway 101 is a main route for heavy trucking. This place would be a 10 if there was a sound wall blocking the road noise like in many bigger cities. - User3674
We opted for this park, as reviews were excellent, even though expensive. The printed park rules are rigid and include restrictions on noise and disturbances; however, continually barking dogs and campers loudly talking on cell phones were the norm. We will be glad to stay only one night. Close quarters, many long term RV-ers, probably nice for them. Clean, gravel, level pad, long enough for rig + tow vehicle, pull through. But not at all restful. - Raenbow
Easy access from 101 north or south. Monthly patrons are situated around perimeter of park and transients are in level, nicely graveled, wide pull-thrus. All utilities are conveniently located with good power and water pressure as well as the six channel cable TV. Was here during California's storm of the decade and was high and dry because of hill top location! Staff are extremely helpful and friendly! - RJourney
Big rig friendly. Campground about 4 miles north of Paso Robles. Gravel pull thrus with full hookups, 50 amps and wifi. Very friendly and helpful office staff. Price is with Good Sam discount. - Keith/Ruth
