We needed a place to spend the night off the road and in spite the reviews that said "Keep driving" and "Deliverance" we stopped. Price reflects Passport America and it may still have been overpriced. We had a pull-through spot with full hookups and everything worked, but I did find myself double checking the locks on the door before going to bed. The office was a blue haze of smoke and the manager had thick black dirt crusted under his fingernails. It was unkempt, smelly, and a bit scary but we got through the night without any incident. We camped at Trail In RV Campground in a Motorhome.

Rate is Passport America. A nice quiet park with relatively easy access. Pull-through sites are long enough to leave my truck hooked up to the RV. I would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Trail In RV Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice small park with new manager. Park is a bit run down, but he just took over and is working hard to get it back in shape. They have kicked out some of the trashier people and the ones that are still here are looking ok. Wi-Fi is not working right now and the Cable is in bad shape, you only get 4 channels. The power is good and Verizon works well. The pool and bathrooms are nice and clean. I could not get my dish to work, as for the trees. Only stayed for one night so didn't set up the remote. As far as Passport Americas places go, this will be one of the nicer ones, once it is fixed up - if they do fix it up. Would stay again. We camped at Trail In RV Campground in a Motorhome.

While it looks a bit “too” rustic, our drive-through site was level, power was clean, and our Verizon reception for the phones and “air” card was great. Best of all, we were able to get Direct TV via our rear roof mounted dish which isn’t always possible in some of the more expensive sites we have been. We camped at Trail In RV Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We paid the Passport America price of $15.50. We would never have stayed here for full price. First the good: Nice long pull through site; we didn't have to unhook the car for the overnight stay. There is a store for some food and movie rentals and the man in the office was very nice and helpful. Good free wi-fi and cable. Verizon did not work. Bell ExpressVu worked despite all the trees. Now the bad: the place is a dive. Junk and garbage everywhere and the long time residents sites are disgusting. If management would evict the junkers and clean up the area it could be a nice park. Ok for a cheap overnight stay but no longer. We camped at Trail In RV Campground in a Motorhome.

The cost reflects passport. This is the most rundown RV park I have been in the locals were all at the office which is 80% of the RV Park a broken down ransacked trailer meets you at the entrance and everything goes down from there would not send my worst enemy there.

We stayed here for one night at $14 on our way up north using our Passport America card. The park is pretty rundown and there are a lot of longtimers staying here. We did get a pull-through site and for one night on the road it was OK. They did have a pool and restrooms as well as a general store. The location is off the highway, so it was quiet and close to Lake Shasta. The Passport rate makes it worthwhile to stay for one night. We camped at Trail In RV Campground in a Motorhome.

The permanent residents outnumber the overnight campers 10 to 1. Most of the park is covered in junk that the residents threw around their campers, old motor homes, shacks etc. There were several dogs running loose, so I didn't feel comfortable leaving my dog out alone at all. Trash was everywhere. The pool was dirty and I didn't go in the restrooms. I didn't feel good about leaving anything unlocked or otherwise unsecured. This is one I will definitely not visit again.

The rate reflects the PA discount plus $1.00 a night for 50 amp power. Trail In RV Campground has everything you need: full hook-ups (30/50 amp power), free Wi-Fi, cable, reasonably clean showers, pool and grocery store. They accept all discounts: GS, AAA, Escapee, PA, Happy Camper, etc. Interior roads are passable but not in great shape and pull-through sites are large enough to accommodate big rigs with tow vehicle. Location is convenient to Lassen Volcanic Nat'l Park, Shasta Nat'l Forest, Shasta Lake, and Redding. The current owner and the manager are wonderfully nice, attentive, helpful, cheerful, friendly people. Issues with this park are its appearance, road noise, and whining dogs. The park buildings and grounds haven't seen any maintenance in years. Most of the sites are occupied by permanent and/or seasonal residents who have no interest in keeping their areas free of trash. But then, the park buildings are surrounded by junk and trash. There are a number of cats roaming the park and they, presumably, keep the rodent population in check. We camped at Trail In RV Campground in a Motorhome.

The price shown is based on Passport America membership. The folks here are very friendly, but it is real country and most appear to be full time residents. Our gravel pull through site was long enough to accommodate the tow car without disconnecting. We stayed here one night to visit Lassen NP. Entrance road into this RV park needs a lot of work so go slow. We camped at Trail In RV Campground in a Motorhome.

Let me start this with the fact they had a flash flood a few days ago that wiped out the main entry bridge that allows easy entrance for bigger rigs into camping spots. They seem to be working on it but I'd bet it'll be a while before it's done. It is possible for trailers as long as you can make a sharp cut but would be work for a Class A. That being said this is an "OK" park for an overnight stay while driving through but probably not a place I'd stay if I had younger kids. There are several permanent campers (aka people living here) that reflect the economy of the area, the office and "store" are old and well worn and the management was definitely friendly. There were many of the permanent campers hanging out on the front porch of the office/store and to be honest it creep-ed out my wife. There is some highway noise from I-5 but it is not horrible. We did not use the restrooms or showers due to creep factor. All in all it's a quick stay while passing through and for the price it's an OK type place, more a $10 park than a $15. We camped at Trail In RV Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Close to I-5 but quiet. Friendly staff. Wi-Fi is fair, a bit slow most of the time. Good place to stop while traveling I-5. We camped at Trail In RV Campground in a Motorhome.

I'm glad I ignored the other reviews. We had no problem with this park for an overnight en route stay, especially for the $15 Passport America rate. We got a long pull-through site (in an area separate from the full-timers), 50 amp, full hookup w/ basic cable, free Wi-Fi (worked well for email and light browsing) and from sites 3-5 Dish rooftop satellite should work. It is convenient to I-5 and quiet, in a valley surrounded by treed hillsides. The host was helpful and friendly. Kids were playing. It's run down and not a campground we'd like to hang out at, but would stay overnight again for the Passport rate. We camped at Trail In RV Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

As a Pass Port park we were able to save some money on the regular rate. The park is very old and very tired with many long term residents living there in older units. Dogs were allowed to wander the park without being leashed and deposit their business where ever they wanted. The pull through sites were long and wide enough for our rig. This is not a first class park, but for being safe and off the main highway it will work. The manager fellow was helpful and willing to help. The free Wi-Fi was not reliable and seemed to be off as much as it was on. We camped at Trail In RV Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

I'll say this: What did we expect for the rate? It was not expensive, and it is mostly a long-term resident park. The pool was clean, so were the restrooms, but I would not let my kids use them without an adult escort, as some of the people hanging around seemed frightening. We followed the sheriff into the park, it was not a social call, that should have been a sign. We won't stay here again. We camped at Trail In RV Campground in a Motorhome.
