This park could be great. It has access to the lake and wine country. We called for a reservation and had to call twice before getting an answer. The desk girls (combination hotel clerks/RV park/ convenience store cashiers) were not very helpful. They gave us the door code for the showers but did not tell us that there is a different code for the laundry and that the only access to a bathroom was through a card key locked door into the "workout room". Without the key there is no access to the bathroom. The pad was level. The casino was extremely smoky. This is more of just an overnight stay as there are limited amenities and the staff was not helpful. I didn't even unhook from the truck, just ran my stabs down and had dinner in my kitchen and used my bathroom. - samchev

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

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

OK for an overnight. The pull thru sites are on one side of the road and they have back in sites on the lake side of the road. Check in was easy.
If coming from the West, the right turn onto Lakeshore Drive is the right turn from hell. I was able to do it but bent one of the arms on my tow bar. Suggest west bounders go thru the roundabout then turn right on Hammond, then left on Lakeshore. - Allure470

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

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

This was to have been a nice relaxing stay of 11 nights,in a lake view site, booked well in advance. After a very twisty drive from the I5, we arrive to a campsite that is old and tired, not a resort! Sites are all dirt, not level and very dusty, no grass as shown on the website photos. The photos must be from years ago. It would have been a huge challenge to maneuver our 35' RV into the site we reserved, leaving little to no room for our 3 slides, there were no other sites that we would have remotely reconsidered. We had to forfeit our deposit of $270.00 USD ($353.00 CDN) as the owner was not prepared to refund any part of our deposit! Overall the park was a huge disappointment and dealing with the management was even worse! Some attempt to negotiate a partial refund would have gone a long way toward not sending in this review! We would never recommend this park. - Mr and Mrs P

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

It’s great for what it is – very rustic, off the beaten path. We used it as an overnight stop on our way from Southern California to the coastal redwoods. No traffic noise at all – it’s about a mile off Highway 20. The back-in sites next to the creek were quite large. The sites were level with a dirt surface – probably gets muddy in wet weather, but we had no problem. The management was very accommodating and pleasant. - Prof Dan

Definitely a laid back, rustic campground. It felt like we were in someone's back yard. Sites are close together. Very shaded. Some low hanging trees. Wire fencing between sites which makes the sites feel smaller. We had no one on either side of us. We would have felt much more comfortable if there was no fence. Felt closed in with the wire fencing. Grill had garbage in it. Hook ups were only W&E with dump station. We had to wait over an hour to have the electric turned on. Bathrooms are old but clean, Pets are allowed, but not welcome. $2./day per pet charge. Dog waste in our site. No Verizon or Sprint Internet. No Verizon or AT&T signal. Nice swimming pond, basketball court, and communal large campfire but full of garbage. Would not come back. - Fur Mom

This campground located 1 1/2 miles from highway 20 is a rough hewn gem. We arrived late, in the dark, and the owner greeted us and then took us to our camp-site. She stayed while we hooked up and then said, "You seem tired, if you are not leaving early, you can pay in the morning." Pretty amazing, and yes we were tired so we paid in the morning. The stars put on such a display without any ambient light to compete with for their brilliance. The silence was quite unbelievable, simply no sounds except the forest and its animals. The setting for this park is beautiful, forest and glade. There are wild turkeys here that will bid you adieu. Our WiFi worked fine so we didn't seek out additional services, which is why I don't know what are available. Also I am not exactly sure about the number of camp-sites. Kids would absolutely love this place, with its wild and natural activities. We will check in here again as we travel up and down Highways 101 and 20. - rvgypsy1

The lady in the office greeted all of us with a big smile. She went out to our site and directed my husband into the spot. We did not have a fire pit with us do she went and found one for us to use. Very private and quiet. The lake was beautiful. They had just put 800 lbs of trout in it before we arrived. Can not wait to go back. - Sili

Full hookup site, with 3-channels of cable TV and WiFi (free but slow). Picnic table, no fire pit. The Office has basic food and plenty of fishing bait and tackle. Dirt and gravel sites, semi-level. Showers cost 25-cents for 3-minutes. Some road noise from Hwy-20 but not too bad. Nice fishing dock and club house. Helpful and friendly staff. - zigzag

Small RV Park, dirt and gravel, some leveling required. No discounts offered, we had one of the four, full hookup sites, which are back-ins. You'll need about 25' of electric cord and water hose to reach the box as "some, not all" of the sites have it located on passenger side, and you have to go under your RV to connect. Wi-Fi worked fine, cable TV has four channels. Restrooms were clean, showers have a quarter machine slot. A nice covered fishing dock, roped swimming area, multi-purpose building, and small boat launch. Some highway noise at night, but not bad. Staff was friendly and informative. - zigzag

The road is very narrow getting to and from the RV Park. The owners recommend entering Blue Lake Road from the West. If the gate is locked, beep your horn and they will open it for you. Sites were gravel and dirt, only 30 amp with water and sewer. Picnic table, a few have fire rings, some with shade. Showers were old but functional. Fishing was great and the lake is 40' deep in most places. They have a boat launch and also rent boats, speed limit is 5mph. They have three docks that you can fish from. You hear the traffic on Hwy-20. Wi-Fi was poor for us but our friends received it fine. No cable or antenna TV reception. Owners were very nice and helpful. - zigzag

Beautiful and secluded. Narrows is a proper name. They have a one way road that the county claims is 2 way. We were terrified coming in and leaving, prayed no one was coming the other direction. Once in the park the lake was beautiful and stocked with fish. The only downfall was that the main highway and you heard traffic constantly. - LadyBird

Owners were great to work with. Fun area for kids to fish, rent boats etc. The only problem was that the restrooms/showers get a lot of sand from the beach area next to the office, and the restrooms become muddy from the use. There is a lot of clutter around the office from old broken down equipment, so they could clean it up some. Rates are reasonable for camping and the rentals. - Kingtriton04

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
