There hasn't been a review here in a while for the TT Turtle Beach. We arrived here with low expectations after visiting another California TT that left us pretty disappointed. BUT we were impressed with the welcome we got from the front office that checked us in. Very informative, very pleasant. We chose a site (as it is the usual custom at a TT campground) in the section we were asked to be in. Our site was water and electric only. Electrical worked fine and water pressure was decent as well. Sites are spacious enough and we really enjoyed the quiet location (a few trains don't bother us). Wifi in the lounge worked great too! You are about 90 minutes away from San Francisco - quite a stretch, but a good home base nonetheless without the cramped campgrounds closer to SF. Gated entrance. Narrow and curvy road coming into the campground; don't despair, it is not a dead end street, you will see the TT sign at the last curb before entrance! - chantalcnrobw

We stopped overnight, not using the amenities such as the lake.
Sites are first come first serve, we arrived late afternoon on a weekend and were stuck with a spot with no shade and lots of army ants, but at least we had a site with electrical.
Staff was not helpful when MapQuest left us stranded. - jkr

Enjoyed this park again, we have stayed here before and glad to see it kept up, to many parks seem to be going downhill these days. Congratulations to the management team.
Large spots plenty of shade good power and clean water! - Ray O

Difficult to enter park from street. Also poorly marked. They initially had us park in the front site and we stuck out in front and in back into the streets...very dangerous. Plus noisy right on the street. We complained and they let us move to the other only available site. Asphalt and gravel roads. Gravel sites. Cement slab for parking your car or truck. Both sites we parked in were very difficult to get into. Questionable for one night. Would not return. Would plan a different route. Comment: most of the park is permanent residences...they are clean and attractive. - Mjones

This is not a RV campground. It is more of a permanent park that accommodates RVers. Not impressive at all. If going through the area and needed a one night stay I probably would do it again. - Pops42

We needed to be in the area about 6 months. We were not eligible for monthly rate as they wanted a 1 year lease in an RV park! So we ended up paying $165 a week plus electricity. Wi-Fi did not work in the back of the park even though we were paying a premium price. Management is very accommodating. - J59T

The preview I read AFTER we made reservations claimed there were a lot of homeless on site. NOT SO! The park is great! Sites have FULL HOOKUPS and are clean. Campground Hosts are friendly and made sure I was happy with my site, which I was. 28 day limit. I was in town for my 40th HS reunion and reminiscing about the area I used to live. - Ridgekid

We decided to use this park as an overnighter. The previous reviews made it sound ideal. Access to the park from I-5 is good. The road to the park is a bit narrow (no shoulder) but not a problem. Parameter roads are paved and plenty wide. Sites as asphalt with a sheltered table, fire pit and services to the left rear. All well placed. The park is very well laid out. So far so good. This place could be a ten. Now the bad. We have never felt so uncomfortable in all our years of traveling. There are so many permanents here and they appear to be destitute. Small, very old travel trailers full of junk (no tow vehicle in sight). There was an old Class A with a chair on it's roof, kids toys strewn everywhere, the hood was propped open with wires etc hanging out and the smell was disgusting. We would not walk our dog near there after one turn! There are people living out of cars. This is a scene out of Deliverance. I understand that some folks are down on their luck and need a place to stay but the Host needs to step in and get the placed cleaned up. There was also quite a bit of doggy do around. We did not see the host at all. There are no restaurants or stores within walking distance. This gem is a disaster! We paid $26.00 (inc $1.00 for the dog) and will not return. - Rollin Ollens

We found it clean and quiet and surrounded by farms. We needed to find a good layover spot on our trips north and this is definitely going to be one of them. We found our site well set up and very usable. - Californiamini

Where to began? We pulled in this park dubious about all the trash, old trailers, and general skid row look to the place. We were shown our site on the water and decided to try to make the best of it. While hooking up we kept getting whiffs of a funky smell and assumed it was coming from the uncapped sewer hookup. After hooking sewer up and still getting a smell we called the camp host over to have a look/sniff. Well he ran some water down the line but afterwards told us the smell was most likely from when the wind blew the wrong way from the cesspool 100 yards farther down the road. Do I have to go on? We tried to ignore it and hoped it would be only momentary, but during the night we (my wife and I) were both woken by a horrible overwhelming methane odor. We hauled out the next morning after paying 1 week in advance. The camp host said "NO" to our refund request. We wouldn't camp even near here again. - Randx

This place has a big sign that states it is under new management. I would not recommend it for anyone unless you enjoy the ambiance of a homeless encampment. Most units here were permanent RVs, but it also included a bunch of semi-complete storage units, a shipment container and a few mobile homes. Lots of stuff at just about every site, a lot of run down units. Also, if you stay for longer than 30 days, you have to pay a security deposit (equal to one month's rent) which isn't returned to you unit 5-7 days after you leave (I guess they have to make sure you didn't ruin the carpeting or the walls or steal the site). Avoid this place unless you are desperate (and I was due to knee replacement - here two months). It's too bad their new management hasn't cleaned up the place. So far, all they've done is chop down a bunch of trees. The site is mostly dirt (mud after the rains this winter) with grass that is cut but not raked up. - Woolibaar

We have stayed here before and I must say: this park is going through some real changes. It is getting a face lift, so to speak. With that said: the staff and the store have the same pleasant people that where here from the last time, except they have a couple of new people that add to the charming atmosphere. The camp sites are well maintained and manicured. The bathrooms are older but still well maintained and clean. This park is just one big adventure of a place to walk, and has quirky people to meet. We will definitely stay here again! - J Mellish

The park is old but in good shape, they are really not set up for big rigs, we are 44 ft, the sites are around 30-40ft we pulled in facing the river so all the hook ups are backwards we did get 50 amps from the site next to us, but if they are full you may as well take a site not on the water. They are pet friendly and you have a lot of park to walk in. The park is about 5 min. from town in a car. No sewer available, they do provide a fair dump station. - 44 ft Beaver

This is a military only Famcamp located on the Defense Logistics Depot. The phone number is for the base police. There is no phone number for the campground as there is no campground manager and no reservations are accepted. The base police were extremely helpful to us over the phone and can tell you if there are RV spaces available or not. At $15 a night it is a great bargain for full hookups on grassy sites. There is an "iron ranger" since there is no park manager. There are tons of trains all around the area so if train noise is a problem for you maybe you should skip this place. We found the train noise at night to be minimal and acceptable. We were told by the base police and several base employees that the RV park may be closing in September 2014, so call before you go. We would definitely stay here again. - Don Geidel

Gr8 place for an overnight. Don't trust GPS. Use March Ln off ramp from I-5 & follow it all the way. It turns into Buckley Cove Rd. When it Tee's, turn right into the Park. Be VERY careful on rough road in last 1/4 of the way on March ln. Speed limit is 40, but it'll jar your teeth loose at 25. Outstanding customer service- allowed us to stay much later than usual checkout because our traveling partners had car repair issues. No extra charge! Beautiful setting right on San Joaquin River . Exc sites/hookups etc. It DOES get hot there, so be prepared. Our 2nd time here, but definitely won't be our last. - gs2rt

Great place to stay. Nice biking/walking area. The laundry facilities were very clean but only 2 washers & 2 dryers. More like a channel than a river with big tankers coming in. - Psushu

Locating the park was a little confusing. We suggest: After turning onto Buckley Cove, stay on it. At the toll booth, tell them you are going to Riverpoint and they will open the gate. Continue until you reach a "T" in the road. Go right and then you will see a sign for Riverpoint. It's in a marina and the office is in the blue steel building to your right when you turn in. When you register, you'll be given a gate code for after hours. Only sites 7, 8, 9, 15, 16, 25 & 26 are 50 amp. 32 sites total, most are on the river. Sites are short but tow parking is available on the site and next to the rig or across from it. Staff was nice. - The Strongs

We first drove in the campground and wanted to leave cause at first glance it was a bit rough. We found our sight, b40 and it backed up to a large grass area with large shade trees and the Delta was right there. It was beautiful! We had a great area to have a BBQ and campfire, to our family it was perfect. The beach area was nice although the first day there were so many jet skis the noise was horrible. There were 10 in our little area at one time. Just seemed like a lot. I was worried about the night and if the area would get a bit wild but it was fine. We enjoyed our BBQ and campfire and then slept fine. As long as we got the same area of the campground we would stay again. - missymiss

This place was a dump. Septic backed up and there was a stench. No one was cleaning the restrooms or bathrooms. Plus the place is up for sale so it seems no one cares. We stayed the next night at Tiki Lagun, down the road and found it to be 10x cleaner and much more friendly staff. - traveller57

This is the single worst campground we have stayed at to date. The campsites are in the middle of an oval of permanent residents. It is dirty and way off of the beaten path. It took us 30 minutes to get to the place off of the 5 freeway. The managers were watering down the dirt sites, and sprayed our clean truck and trailer with dirt and mud. The pictures in the website do not tell a true story. The river is right next to the campground, but it is brown. - smeede

We stayed 7 nights in a 40 foot fifth wheel. We were here to visit family in the bay area and did all we could to avoid the heavy traffic. We just hate big city traffic towing or not. All roads into and around the campground are fantastic. The site pad was asphalt and mostly level. The site was quite large and the scenery was great. You will see plenty of turkey, deer, and rabbits every day and they are not very timid. There is plenty of room to walk/hike around the sprawling campsites and even down to the west swim area. We had three different cell providers and none of them work in the park. You may see a park WiFi on your scan but they won't give you access and say it is only for the police. We left the park and drove up the hill when we "really" needed cell connection. - Moe and Flo are on the go

Arrived for a first night en route towards Yosemite from San Leandro Roadbear RV pickup. Very friendly reception by park rangers. Our site was in hard dirt (bit dusty) with free outlook over the field before us (was quite empty when we stayed there on a Wednesday). Met some friendly chipmunks that warned us of a snake with interest in our picnic table. Most memorable of our stay was the walk over to the lake during dawn, and see the sun set over the mountain while doing some late night swimming. Visit the lake after most others have left. - crowny

This is a great park, better than we expected. It is far enough from the hustle that it feels like a getaway, even though it's only an hour or less drive for many Bay Area folks. We were here in a weekend in March, and over half of the campground was closed for the winter. The open loops were pretty busy, with only a few empty sites. There were a lot of tent campers, popups, trailers, and 5th wheels. Only 2 of us with A's and a handful of C's. There are some long sites so not sure why more A's weren't there.
We enjoyed a hike up (and I mean up) the Ohlone Trail. We were trying to imagine how busy the place could be in the summer. Not sure if we'd be as interested in that, especially because we noted that a lot of the sites would not have much shade. So that is our caveat: this is a great 3 season park, probably best avoided in summer (except maybe non-holiday weeknights) due to heat and crowds.
Park staff was super helpful. The store at the campground is not open during the offseason and I did not get firewood prior, so was lamenting not being able to have a fire. Then the awesome lady who drives the "FIREWOOD FOR SALE" Toyota truck drove by and kindly let me flag her down and brought me 2 bundles of wood for $15 (I tipped her well for her efforts).
Site 51 was massive, although no shade. We enjoyed being away from the more busy loop where the hookups were, but that area has its fun/advantages, too. It was very quiet both of our weekend nights, in spite of the campground being nearly full. - 70s Kid

The employees were the friendliest I've ever encountered. Grounds were exceptionally clean, as they were constantly cleaning and watering. Restrooms were usually cleaned x2/day, and have recently been upgraded into what looks like 5-star hotel bathrooms. Many trees, such that it is easy to have your unit be in the shade, if you get there early, and if you make a reservation. I stayed over a couple of weeks and during the week it is slow, but on w/e's is booked. 40' rigs can park, but some spots can be difficult to maneuver when parking. Spots are more ideal for 36' rigs. No pull thru lots. - gypsydan

Sites are miserable to level on. Nothing but mud and ruts, some areas haphardly filled in with boards. Bathrooms are disgusting, it's obvious whomever is supposed to clean them, doesn't use them. Right now the weather is in the 70's...not a boat in sight to be rented. Don't think you're going to explore the island, all privately owned, fenced off or just plain trashy. - Jahman

We had a great time here at Sugar barge. There are a lot of RV sites. There are quite a few permanents here at the park (maybe 15% of those here). But all the sites are very clean. The restaurant is great for lunch or dinner (not open for breakfast). The restaurant is only open May through labor day. They welcome all breeds of dogs! It is a great family park where kids love to ride their bikes and just have a good time. Though there are a lot of great RV parks to explore in California, and we plan to check as many of them out as we would can, this would be a place we would love to come back to. The only draw back is there are mosquitos on occasion and one needs to keep an eye out for foxtails in regards to their dogs. We look forward to returning here in the future. :-) - luvdoggiez
