This park is hard to get to but worth the effort. We had a great site with loads of space with easy but great walks to the Russian River. Lots of secluded sites if you prefer and you can have a fire in the pits provided for that! Lots of activities for the kids, young and old and wonderful dog parks. We'd definitely stay here again, it is a MUST stop park.
DO NOT follow GPS to this site! Go North of Santa Rosa and follow the brown signs to The Russian River Recreational Area, River Road through Fulton...GPS is a no-no, you've been warned and we should know! - D and PK

We love this place, staff are friendly, the location by the river is great. The sites are well maintained and clean. Theres a really nice duck pond at the entrance, it was fun to sit and watch the ducks and geese. Cellphone data coverage was non-existent unless you stood by the side of the river ! We will be staying there again. - rekrab

We stayed here midweek and we had the park basically to ourselves, minus the three apparent full timers. For $43 I would expect there to be a dump on site. Be aware...there is NO sewage dump station. Very clean, used showers because there is no dump and those were clean with hot water. It is within walking distance from the town. Very quiet at night despite the proximity to Neely Rd. Was here three days before we saw the park managers, good thing we didn't need anything. - pamandtina

This park is in a beautiful natural setting along the Russian River. It allows tents, and so was a good fit for us, traveling in a teardrop. However the small staff is just overwhelmed. Bathrooms are similar to what you would find in a campground, not RV park, w/cement floors and basic facilities. Bring your own toilet paper. The RV sites have 30 amp plus water, no sewer that I saw. They are arranged around two circular glades surrounded by trees, many of them lovely redwoods. Sites 1 thru 5 look really nice and are shady. All except 1a are back-in. The first night we stayed happened to be the beginning of BeerFest weekend, and every campsite was thronged with crowds of joyfully inebriated young men, who celebrated 'til the wee hours. However, people were courteous enough. After the weekend, the park emptied out, and during most of the week we were nearly alone in the spectacular setting. Campers returned the following weekend but it was much quieter. We were told that the park may be changing hands. We will be returning as it is a perfect fit for us with a daughter living within walking distance. It would be great if someone could take this diamond in the rough and shine it up! Note: although the park borders the Russian River, those areas appear to be tent campsites, and actual access to the riverbank is a little tricky. Much easier and probably safer to walk across the pedestrian bridge and go to Johnson Beach on the other side of the river, where there is a lovely and child friendly area for swimming or kayaking. - Grants Girl

It is a tight squeeze for a big rig. Just a grassy area and some large trees. No satellite because of the trees. Needs to be updated. Quiet and close to town. Very dangerous getting out because of the blind curve. - Badge

If you like camping in the dark woods, this is a good place. If you like RVing with cell service, WiFi, or TV, this is not the place. This is a private Camping Club, not a RV park. Paved and gravel interior roads, nice level gravel sites. Each site separated by tall hedges or forest. Some sites FHU, others 30 amp and water only. Most sites back into forest for camping experience. Only a few sites can get satellite signal and none can get OTA TV. There is no cell service and no WiFi available for 20 miles. Next to large river. Had problem with low voltage even when park half occupied. Small rec room and no store of pool or activities. 7 miles to Ocean. Very narrow and twisty state roads to get to area. Be careful with big rigs on county roads. Take highway 116 or River Road in from east, Avoid the Bohemian Hwy., lot of low branches. - Pepper Dan

Camped for two nights this weekend for the first time. Great camp ground, the kids loved it and the river is super close. We have been R.O.D members for 8yrs and love being able to explore new areas utilizing campgrounds that are part of our membership. We were driving from Reno and did not get out of town in time Friday to check in before their 10pm check in time. I contacted them to say we would not make it before 10pm, so instead we will drive most the way that night, pull over to sleep somewhere and be there around 9am so we could still make the best of our time there. I was told we could not checkin prior to noon as that was their checkin time. I questioned it since our reservation began the day before so what difference would it make. I was told checkout is at noon, they need to see what sites are available after people check out. I reiterated "you should already be reserving my site", I was put on hold and when she returned I was told that was just the policy and I could not check in any sooner. We left early the next morning (why drive that evening now) and because of the traffic the 5 hr drive took 10! We arrived at dinner time and were only able to spend a day and half there. Great park but the customer service sucks. The people who work there seem unusually unfriendly for working somewhere so peaceful. Beautiful area to visit however. - Anavisca

This was our third stay at this park. Very close to the ocean, nice walk down to the Russian River. 30 amp power, but sewer included. We use this as our week between stays at Thousand Trails Russian River and TT Morgan Hills and really enjoy our 'quiet' week here. Rate reflects our $0/night cost under ROD. - PugetSound

The park is fairly clean, though the full-time camper section is a bit run-down looking. The manager was very nice and friendly, but the rest of the staff didn't go out of their way to assist. Our spot was under some nice trees that provided shade on hot days, but it was also immediately next to a busy road (River Road). The traffic was fairly loud throughout the day and quieted at night. Many of the RV spots were in a large parking lot with no trees, and very close together. The tent camping spots were all in dirt and didn't look appealing at all. There is access to the river, though it was down some steep dirt paths. This could be a lovely property, but needs some attention. Try to get an "R" site - these back to the river. - sail2blue

This is the only Good Sam park in the Russian River Valley and they offer Good Sam Discounts (10% off!) The restrooms were clean and there is access to a fantastic private beach. River Bend recently bought Hilton Family Campground, so the resort is better than ever. With an old fashioned arcade, General Store, cabins, horseshoe pits, basketball court, and an outdoor theater that plays kids movies at night. Also, on Saturdays in the summer there is free face painting and karaoke! The staff was very friendly and helpful. - User737

I would have rated this park a little lower If not for having one of the nicest sites, R15 backing up to the river.
There are mostly long term campers there while I was there May 24th.
They were not that busy but told me all the had for my 35ft MH was full service even though I said a 30 amp without sewer would work ( to keep cost down ? )
I thought the grout in the tile stalls were green, but at a closer look I noticed it was mold.
I would not stay here again. - twowoofs

This park is also known as River Bend. One is for tents and another is for RV's according to the owner. Water in the showers was warm and owner said she would tell her husband about it. FYI, no ATT service in the RV area. If you're Xfinity customer there was great free wifi available. Sites abut the highway so some road noise. In short nice park, but expected more for the price point charged. - hmthomas1

River access was nice, but WAY too much money for what you get! Also seemed to be more of a "full time" campground than a vacation spot. Has a lot of folks living here and it was very noisy. It's right on a busy road, so lots of traffic noise too. Also very crowded. - frenchman

Crowded, noisy. Way over priced for what you get. Friendly hosts, but the crowd seemed like a bunch of squatters looking for a free meal. Did like the river being close, but had a hard time enjoying it. - mountainsurfer

PROS: Just so you know, the selling point for this campground is its extremely close proximity to the ocean. Some sites have ocean front views that can't be beat, but these fill up within minutes of being listed on the ReserveAmerica website (and they are also $10 more than the adjacent sites that are not beach front). The sound of the waves crashing at night is amazing and there is a plethora of hiking and sightseeing opportunities both north and south of the campground. The campground itself was quite clean and pretty quiet (even on a summer weekend) and seems to be frequented by the serious camper and nature lover, not the weekend party crowd. The camp hosts were helpful and considerate. Should you have extra vehicles or your tow vehicle not fit in your site, there is overflow parking just a 1/4 mile away at the main parking area for Wright's Beach. CONS: These sites are TINY!!! We have never, and hopefully will never, try to shoehorn into a site this small again. We literally only had 6-12" to spare on all sides as we jockeyed into our site. If we had had a pull trailer vs. a fifth wheel, or anything longer than 24', it would have been impossible. Also, our fifth wheel is quite tall and the overhang from the trees scraped the top of our unit. Nothing serious, but obviously you want to avoid that if possible. It would be awesome if overhead clearance was mentioned on ReserveAmerica. These sites are also extremely close together, especially where we camped which was in a cul-de-sac of 3 sites, all with large trucks. After 1 day of squeezing our truck in and out of our site, we decided to just park it in the overflow lot. So in all, this is a perfect campground for tent campers and small RVs and trailers. Larger RVs can be accommodated in the overflow camping section adjacent to the ranger kiosk, but there is zero privacy or ambiance there. If we come back, that's probably where we'll have to stay! - MissCampsALot

This small campground is situated on a stunning beachfront spot between Bodega Bay and Jenner, just off Hwy 1. You'd never know it was there unless you read about it or happened to notice the sign (which we drove past, even though we were looking for it). I was able to reserve the last non-ADA spot a couple days ahead, but we were there in late December. I understand this campground is wildly popular and prime times sell out quickly, which is understandable to us now that we've been there.
All of the sites are great, some are just even more great. I read ahead of time that the only "good" spots are 1-10 as they are beachfront, but I now disagree and will say that 11-18 are also wonderful and just steps from the beach. 19-27 are fine, as well, but are in a lot across a small road and a bit farther from the beach. We were in 15 with our 23' class A and fit well. Longer rigs, over 30', will have a tough time here, however.
There were a fair amount of tent campers here when we were, in addition to 5th wheel trailers class B's and C's (we were the only class A, but we're a small class A), although tent campers should be aware of the fact that there are no showers at the site.
During our stay, a sign at the Camp Host's site said they were away Tuesday and Wednesday (and we left Thursday around 1pm and they still weren't there), so no firewood sales nor any service typically rendered by Camp Hosts. Not sure if this occurs every week in the low season or it was just unique to our stay. If we'd known, we would have brought firewood but we were campfire-less while we were there :(
We live in the Bay Area so we understand that the beach weather around NorCal can be finicky, most often worst in summer. Weather and numbers of visitors at the Sonoma Coast area are ideal in the winter, so we highly recommend a winter visit and your ability to get a spot in Wright's Beach is greatly increased, as well. Win-win-win. - 70s Kid

No hook ups, no trailer dump. Wonderful sites, great beach. We were treated to a perfect sunset. Loved going to sleep hearing the sound of the surf. - Trekking

Old, run down park. Unfriendly and near nasty management. Old, dirt filled site, not level, small. Just electric and water, no sewer. Most folks stay here are the permanent type with old, run down rigs. Stayed here one night. We will avoid this one in future. - hotpepper

Un-kept camp sites, in between river and hwy 116. Loud noise from hwy all night. Bath room and showers needed some TLC. - Mtn girl

This was 2nd time stayed here and first time they only had 2 sites w/electricity. Upgraded to maybe 9 sites w/30 or 50 amp. No sewer. Some sites are basically in the grassy field with a fantastic ocean view (All the RV sites/platform tents and many of tents do also). Scattered tenting site and/or platform tents throughout. Something like 378 acre ranch, with riding stables and guest house accommodations, too. Not for everybody, but my grandsons (25 & 13) loved it. Located just north of Bodega Bay almost to Salmon Creek. Really great camp hosts have been there quite awhile and are helping the new owner transition. Non-barking, friendly dogs have been welcome (don't want to scare horses). Trail riding is a separate entity, but they do great trail rides, are very helpful and friendly. Will go back. They do have Passport America, but not sure if any other discounts at this time. - 5er Pam

If you are in the Bodega Bay area, this is a good rv park. It is small and hilly with limited sites available in the summer. Lots of people come to the area so you need reservations early. The full hookups are pricey. We stayed in a bottom lot by the pet pen with no facilities. The water and sewer dump are up top and very difficult to back into. Tight tight spaces so you need to be a good driver. Verizon worked well so we used our hot spot. No tv reception in the cheap seats. Full hookups have cable. We were in a space with trees behind us so no sat but the cell service was good enough to stream. Lots of weekenders so come during the week is best. Many groups come and reserve early. If the bottom, self-maintained (no services) sites are full when you arrive, you will have a very difficult time getting a big rig in. No one was here when we came and still tight. Our site was very unlevel and our auto levelers could not fix it enough. We were at a lean all weekend but that is different with every site. - FrancisandRenee

Nice little hillside RV park in Bodega Bay. Friendly staff. Nice facilities, not fancy but good. You'll need to level your rig...just about every site slopes downhill. I needed a stack of 3 orange levelers on one side. The sewer hose connections are all on the uphill side of your rig and are practically even or even higher than many rigs' discharge. I had to take my rig to their dump station to fully empty it. Water tastes bad and fouled my filter to brown in just 3 days. Bodega Bay can be VERY windy and cold. The site they gave me -45- was a virtual wind tunnel...like Antarctica. And an impromptu trailhead terminated in our very site...and people traipsed right through, nonplussed! Still, it's a nice little park. - Captain Gort

Very good resort. Plenty of room for my RV and could park my toad in front with no problem. Nice and quiet even on a windy day. If we come back to this part of California will stay here again. - ChuckD37

Very mixed reactions to this R V Park. We were to spend one night in site 38 then told we had to move to 28. I asked the office to call the people that were scheduled for 38. I was told they didn't do that sense they paid in advance. we moved to 28, 38 sat open for the balance of our visit. Our freezer quit working during our stay so I asked for a partial refund or even a credit for future visits as we had to leave 2 days early. They said they would check with the manager and get back to me. I have not heard a word. As for the park, it is probably the best in the area. Nice views of the harbor but there was almost no boating activity sense the winds were very strong. Great restaurant at the entrance to the park. - SSM 46

If you had a water site with utilities i'd Rate this place higher. We didn't. Basically a gravel lot next to a marina. We were parked back to back with our neighbor. Bodega Bay nice area. I'd probably stay at state or county park next time. Personnel here nice. Verizon works well. Their cable marginal. - smitty12
