I know this place is suppose to be improving but it's a mess. Too many permanent RV's that haven't moved in years with trash scattered all over. The rules state 2 vehicles per site, the one across from me had 4. Way too many trees and all need trimming. I paid for a pull-through site but I had to back out because of the cars and trees in the way. The place is usable and that's about all I can say for it. - Dennis_K

This is an old RV park with lots of what appears semi permanent residents, but no problems, tight spaces, but overall very pleased. First, not many RV Park choices this area, so we took a chance. It is very quiet despite being packed. No unrowdy behavior. Sure you can hear the occasional train, but so what? The laundry and sites are kept clean. Gravel site, tight but level. Good 50 Amp, water, etc. Convenient to the freeway I 80. They have made a lot of progress from way back. Filled most days we are here. Give them a try sometime, it's not a luxury place but they are doing their best. Good Sam discount only on separate days, they have a weekly discount rate. - Pat and Jerry

We stayed here sight unseen based on the recommendation of friends who knew of the park, but are not RVers. It was a pleasant surprise. The park is old and dated, but very quiet (aside from occasional train) and shaded by mature trees. Our pull-through site was very large and even a rookie like me was able to pull in easily. The location is very convenient for the area. I estimate about 50% permanent residents. - Gopo

Very nice, clean park. CG Hosts very pleasant along with the Ranger. American River bike trail runs through the park so easy access if you are biking. Fantastic VZ cell signal...should be since the transmitter is right in the park! - IslandGuy

Nice Park. Located in-town, good place to stay for visiting local area. Also, traffic is a bit noisy due to locations. Biking is popular but fishing is very challenging despite regular stocking. Finally, campground still gets full in spite of the high fee. - RetUSAF

Nice long term RV park. We stayed here so we can visit our kids during the holidays. Pricey but okay. It was clean and the camp hosts were okay. Park Ranger was very nice. Very quiet. Please note that they charge you $10 a day for any visitors who stay longer than 15 minutes. Wish they had told us that when you register or I would have gone somewhere else. - Bruceaz

I was desperate for overnight parking as 4 other parks I called from Loomis to Sacramento were booked up. Placer County Fair Grounds made space for me as they were pretty booked as well. Most campsites were occupied by long term folks that were packed in like sardines. The camp host gave me a spot off to myself with electricity only which was a relief after seeing the sardine sites. I stayed by myself while my husband was on a trip and didn't feel comfortable there by myself. Ended up moving to our family's driveway the next day. Depending on what is going on at the fairgrounds could impact your visit. Some sort of races going on when I got there on a Saturday afternoon so it was loud...but was over by 7pm. Appreciated the camp hosts giving me a nice site but I just felt unsettled while there. - JeffDeb

First Fairgrounds experience and it is a good one. Made last-minute search for a place near Sacramento over Memorial Weekend. Got a number to call the host. He hooked us up with full 50amp hookups in the shade with lots of room to ourselves. Probably 20 campers over several acres. It was quiet except for several events Sat night. We walked to the car races, which were fun to watch. It quieted down after 11, which was fine. We could have gone to sleep earlier if that was our desire, not too loud. We will definitely stay here next time we're in the area. - Seb

Other recent reviews generally reflect our opinion/experience. The best I can say is that it was quiet and affordable. The campground host, was a big help getting us into a spot during a heavy rainstorm. We camped in one of the few spots by the "Beer Garden". There are lots of other sites in a nearby open field, but not recommended should there be rain in the forecast. - rncordy

This park advertises that it has gone green with solar. Its true they have a massive solar array. The management does a great job of keeping this park clean and neat. The pool and hot tub are awesome! - juustright

Excellent location mid way between Sacramento and Reno/Lake Tahoe. Easy access to most sites with some sites a little larger for a little more $$. Best park in the area, the hosts are great and the price is right. Very nice clubhouse with large TV and leather couches. Small assortment of items for sale to make your stay more convenient. Only problem was a daily cleanup with a loud leafblower. That could be either a plus or a minus depending on your viewpoint. Swimming pool available for warmer weather. - Motoman

A very nice rv park with paved pull-throughs and some back-ins. Our site was wide enough to park the truck next to the trailer. There is privacy hedging between sites and a picnic table. The site we were in was not level, but it wasn't too bad. Neighbors were friendly and there are some long term folks here. You are near a small airport so there is some plane noise. OTA signal was good as well as Verizon service. Their Wi-Fi works fairly well. We would stay here again. - jtl2

As other reviewers commented, there are a few short term rv spaces in this mobile home park. The park is older and residents are friendly. There is no wifi and we were not able to access local tv. We were there for three nights in July while it was 104 degrees. We looked forward to using the swimming pool, which was open until 9:00 p.m. We walked over to the pool around 7:45 p.m and found that the manager made a decision to close the pool two hours earlier. Residents told us this was what he did on weekends so he did not have to come over later to lock the gates. We went to the manager's residence near the pool and asked if he might open the pool as per the sign stating it was open until 9:00. He refused, saying it was his decision to close early. even though it was 104 degrees out. We paid for services and the use of the pool, which was denied by the manager. We will never stay at this park again. - nn5

Scattered throughout this mobile home community are sites for rvers. Easy check in and found the site with no problem. There is a pool and 2 laundry rooms. Really a no frills spot to stay. Stayed for 2 nights to visit sister. Very friendly neighbors and felt safe to walk at night in the community. Would stay here again if in the area. Only problem was placement of hookups. Water on the wrong side and sewer was under motor home. - mdmnkcm

Needed a one night stay close to some friends who live in the area. This place certainly fit the bill! They save a few spots for RV's to sit. Full hookups, but no wifi to use. Very clean park, and very friendly staff. Would stay here again! - laurly

The staff is very friendly, the activities for the kids are great, the pool is very well kept.
The river is close to the campsites. The bathrooms are very well kept on weekdays, but are trashed on weekends.
There was a (female) staff member that was hateful and very rude to multiple campers. Other than her, we had a great stay and will be going back. - Just Passing through 2015

Have camped here even before Thousand Trail took over. Do not travel to this park from I-80 Auburn via rt 49, as it is super difficult to navigate.
The roads that are ''paved" in the park are in very bad shape with lots of pot holes. There has been some improvement in the gravel sections.
There are a variety of sites available: river front, semi-wooded field, up on a small hill.
There is a reasonably nice restaurant that has opened at the gate to the park and a short walk across the road leads to others. The park has a small pool and a small beach along the river.
This park has a serious problem with electric shortages. Have lost an a/c due to low amps and the park strongly suggests running your 'frig on gas. Many sites have no power at all, a situation I have not seen improve in 6+ years. We had a sewer hookup, and there is a dump station behind the restaurant or $25. honey wagon by appt.
Seems ELS/Thousand Trails does not return any of one's membership fees for upkeep and relies on "long -term" site rentals, a disturbing trend for the last few years. - Dip1Dip1

Used this as an overnight stop on the way up to Tahoe. We booked last minute and are not a member but got a nice site by the river and enjoyed the evening with new friends. Some road noise from our site at night. - kazmir

This daily rate is what it will work out to be when divided by 30 (so it may be just a bit more for the week). This is a minimum stay of 1 week RV park. Monthly rent is $545.00 which includes water, free mail forwarding service, electric (not extra), garbage, sewer and free GOOD WiFi. This park also has a laundry room and if you prefer to dry outside, there are 3 clothes lines to use for drying outside. Centrally located to everything. Walgreens, Tire store, Target, and various restaurants. - Denise M Smith

My wife and I have spent the last six years here: from October to March. It is a great park. The manager runs a tight ship, but the same rules apply to everyone. You have a gravel suite for RV. Asphalt suite for the tow, and a concrete patio. I would have given it a 10, but for the spotty wifi. Owners don't want to invest the money. We still keep in touch with friends here.
(Lot spacing is spacious with some shade. Site surfaces are asphalt, gravel and grass and feature a patio.) - Guy Wassather

Price reflects weekly (minimum stay) rate of $130- extra days were $27.50 each.
If you are self sufficient & have your own internet, this is a great park with large sites well set out with privacy from tree & gardens. Good value for nice setting. This is a mobile home park which is being converted to a RV Park - mostly RV's now. The park felt safe and has supermarkets and services nearby.
The down side is if you require internet, you need to go to the club house. The main restrooms appear to be shut down with just a single very dated shower/toilet (each) available which forms part of the clubhouse. Cleaning appears to be once a week.
We had no response to emails or telephone messages left requesting a reservation and had to keep ringing until we got through (Office hours 10-5 only). There is also quite a few sirens due to closeness to highway patrol.
We would stay here again. - Kiwigirl

Dust and dirt. The restrooms were not cleaned very often and were dirty. The park is right on the river and if you are there to tube, should be good. If not, don't stay there except maybe one night to visit Marshall gold discovery park and visitor center. The road into the park is very twisty and not worth doing unless you want to stay and tube the river. Constant stream of tubers going down the river and then back up through the campground to start over again. IF YOU ARE NOT THERE TO TUBE-DON'T GO. - Phoenixaway

I stayed here with a group, so rate is reflective of this. Overall, this is a nice park. We were there when a school group was there and it was not a problem except not being able to use a hall during one day (we were told it was ours Thurs.-Sun). At my site (E), the power could only be accessed by literally lying on my stomach...and then having to use levelers so that the plug stayed in! The campground was very focused on building new cabins...would like to have seen more effort in removing the mud! Front desk were very nice. - nicholsm

We had a river site. The site was a back in, flat, level, dirt site with water and electric. There are no sites with sewer on the river. Getting across the one way bridge, with a 13'6" height limit from Highway 49 was the toughest part of the drive. Verizon is the only cell carrier that seemed to work in the park. Parts of the park were closed for periods of time due to school programs and a wedding. There was a dump station available when leaving. WiFi was free, and slow, but it worked. - travelcouple

This "resort" is lost somewhere in the '60's. It may have been wonderful when it was first opened however it is severely run down. There are very few full hookup sites and there are none with 50 amp service. Given the extreme temperature changes in this area, it made for an uncomfortable stay. But perhaps the two most disturbing things were the $10.00 extra per person AFTER two campers and the deplorable condition of the shower/restrooms. Almost everywhere we camp today does not charge for additional people until AFTER four campers. We were shocked that we had to pay 60.00 dollars extra (three days) for our eight and ten year grandsons!! On the other hand, this is a great place for tent campers by the American River. But, keep in mind, this is NOT a camper friendly management. It's as though it's a hobby for them and frankly, the only person I saw really working was the guy emptying the trash cans. Sorry, we camped here once before (about two years) because of the catch & release pond and thought we'd give it another try. Jury is in, won't be back. - J. Kohl

This place was awesome! We were nervous because of the reviews we read but they were so wrong. If you were being out of line then, yes, don't go there, but it was nice, safe, and clean. The staff were helpful and friendly. The campsites are a little challenging so when the young lady at the counter ask you if you want to look first, do it. My husband has awesome skills with our trailer but if you don't this could get a little hairy. We would go there again and make this our new summer spot! We also went on the holiday weekend and had no problems with electricity or shortages. - juanitae

Clean resort on The American River. We camped here just after the end of rafting season so it was almost empty and quiet. Might be different during rafting season as two rafting companies have their base inside the park. Site was fairly level once we backed in. That was a chore. since the site was terraced on a steep road that we had to back up on. Very nice view of river. Store had almost no supplies. Good location near gold discovery park. - castleshade
