My rate was monthly. The spot I got was awesome, a little close to the neighbors but had decent space as it was on the corner. The absolute worst management I have ever encountered in all my years traveling. The female manager is just a miserable person and makes sure to let you know it by being extremely rude and dishonest. It was such an upsetting experience, I will never go near there again. - Papa O

This is mostly a mobile home park. There are sites for RVs and some have been there a very long time. The park is poorly maintained. The limited staff is friendly. It has very limited laundry. There is some train noise in the park. Likely would not stay there again. Parking a 40' MH was very difficult and I had to trim some trees to get in. - Workamper04

We have stayed here a couple of times in the last few years and both times were a wonderful experience. The neighborhood looks a little tough and a lot of the campers are contractors working in the refineries close by. During our first visit (new to RVing at that point) we were assisted in backing into a tight spot by the campers next door. Once we got set up, they invited us to experience some Louisiana cooking. We did and had a great time. They were doing some contract work at the refinery and provided GREAT stories over the next few hours. Most recent stay was during the fires in Napa Valley. Again, great neighbors and pretty quiet considering the campground was full and there was a lot of drama with the fire refugees and such. We left a bit early to make room for the evacuees coming in. I could not complete this review without commenting on the lady at the front desk. She was so helpful, always calm, and just an absolutely great representative of the owner's of this campground. Site was very tight for our motorhome with a slide on each side. I would stay here again the next time I am in the area. - Old Traveler-66

Park is located in a very "seedy" community. Lot's of vagrants hanging around the park, the street in front, the slummy looking motel next door. We didn't feel safe & were scared when we left our coach. There were a number of what appeared to be abandoned RV's in park with flat tires, broken glass, etc. Mostly permanent party campers that were blue collar workers rather than tourists. We felt like we were definitely NOT in the right place as tourists. Spaces very narrow. With slides out you can barely walk between units. Picnic table is a waste & in the way because of the skinny sites. Laundry room was filthy, lint dust everywhere. No change available and office was not available according to their hours posted. They opened late and closed early so office was undependable! Female working the reception desk had a bad attitude! Always! She wouldn't take her eyes off of her computer and would ask, "Do you need something?" No good morning, Hi, How can I help you, etc, etc. Made me feel that I was putting her out every time I entered the office. There was a vagrant watching our unit, sitting across from us in a car for over 2 hours one morning. When I reported it to the camp hosts they were sassy and told me off for not minding my own business! This was the worst RV park experience in my life. I've been camping & RV'ing since the 1960's. - Denny L

Good friendly service for a big city campground. Most units appeared to be long-term people working in the area. Hwy noise is prominent. Site not level despite asphalt pad. Two foot grass patch between sites. Laundry on site. Wifi slow, cable Is mostly SD channels and grainy. - Sasquatchewan

We stayed in a 37 ft motorhome and it was tight getting to our site. Once in site we could open both slides and still have some room. Park is run down but the manager couple are working on upgrades. 50 amp power was issue, had low voltage on one leg but we got by. Water, you need a regulator as I was told by the manager, did have sewer. No wifi or cable. We used for base since we were here to visit San Francisco and the rate was ok. Several residents with old campers, they were living in. We would not stay again. No picnic tables. - belanga

1. Agree with two reviews preceeding mine. The place is ok for a 1-nighter but we didn't sleep well. Probably over reacting but sometimes you just gotta trust your gut. 2. The maintenance guy, Bart, and neighbor Debbie were super friendly. We arrived late and both came out to help us right away and make sure we settled in fine and told us where we could park our tow rigs. 3. We were told to lock our doors and that sometimes cars just drive through the place. 4. Super close to six flags, which is why we stayed here. 5. Stayed one night and are moving to Marin RV Park. - fandrica

First the good things about this park: location, location, location. The park is in Valejo, within a 15 minute drive to the ferry where there is free parking and a ferry with a one hour ride to San Francisco. The price we paid reflects the weekly rate, and seemed quite reasonable for RV parks in the San Francisco area. The operators of this park are very helpful. Now for the negative. This is an older park, not particularly attractive, mostly occupied by permanent residents who live in older rigs. The hookups all work, but they are old and antiquated. For example the electrical hookup was on a post about 6 feet off the ground. There are a couple of newer sites, but they were really too short for our 40 foot RV, so we chose a site next to the permanent or semi-permanent residents. We stayed here for 2 weeks, and given its reasonable price and great location, we would stay here again. - hoppytoad

A long, slow, steep and curvy road to the Juniper Campground near the top around 3,000 feet. Our trailer is 20 feet, which is just about the limit. Dry camping. Juniper is the only campground on Mount Diablo with showers. Contrary to the web site, the showers were operational in July 2009. Also no dump sites on the mountain. There is a campground (Live Oak) nearer the bottom at the south entrance out of Danville. It took us 40 minutes minimum to get up and down the mountain to Walnut Creek, North Gate. But it was worth it. The views down on the valley below are phenomenal, especially the sunsets. There are many, many trails to hike if you are in good shape. Bicyclers are always going up and down the main road (scary!). Not many critters to see though. If you want seclusion, great air, great views, don't mind dry-camping and don't have a big rig, this is a great place to decompress. See the web site for descriptions of the many other worthwhile places in the park. There are other campgrounds; Live Oak is at 1400 feet, with 22 sites, and an open area at the Junction Ranger Station has 6 sites. - User424

The main lot was full and we were lucky enough to get into the overflow lot. It's a nice grassy area with trees surrounding it. We were there during the rainy season and knew that grass can get slippery or muddy when it rains heavily but we have a 5th wheel & a 4 wheel drive truck so we knew it wouldn't be a problem for us, and it wasn't. We enjoyed our stay and kept extending it until we had stayed an entire month. The staff was professional and easy to reach whenever we needed them. We plan on staying there again. - RoadRider

We have stayed in this park 5 times over the last 2 years. The Camp Host is delightful and very helpful, and coordinates everything well. More sites have been added. Power, water & dump... no showers or bathrooms. What I really miss is having wifi, however we are now setting this up through our cell phone. The park is a safe spot to be in or leave one's RV. We come from Northern CA so the Hwy 160 river route to Antioch is both more enjoyable and faster than Hwy 80... about an hour and 10 minutes to Sacramento. This RV Park is about 40 minutes to Oakland/Berkeley depending upon traffic. Overall a score of about 95. - Peter Rhonda

We stayed here two weeks. We stayed "out back" which is separate from the main RV park. This park is in the highest crime area of Antioch and the Gunshots we heard twice were two shooting incidents within two miles of us. No showers or toilets in that part of the park. I don't like writing a bad review but I truly felt unsafe at this park and would not recommend it. I was getting too nervous at this campground. The main part of the park is at the front of the fairgrounds near the main road. Our site was out in the back of the fairgrounds. Homeless people were living right at the fenceline of the fairground. We turned on the main lights at night to brighten the area. I couldn't see staying there any longer and moved my RV to a safer location. - Mike and April

Stayed in a site with FHU. Very narrow road inside park and site pad was narrow and short. Our site was on the side of the hill so everything off the pad was uneven but this is expected in a regional park. The park itself is gorgeous and you truly get the feel of being in the middle of nowhere. Sites were spaced far enough apart that we didn't hear our neighbors on either side. The road in is an older, narrow, winding road which was an adventure pulling our trailer up and down. We would definitely stay here on a visit to the Bay Area. - WoodShed22

This campground is only 30 minutes from central Oakland. We were in site 12, which fit my 25' trailer just fine. My tow vehicle had to park perpendicular. Some of the RV/utility sites are close, and others are widely spaced. Ours was the latter - perhaps the best of the 12 utility sites in my opinion. The access roads are narrow and a bit twisty. Only the first 6 sites would probably work for a rig in the 30+ range. There are no facilities/playgrounds for children, but we did some hiking and spent the rest of our free time in Oakland or SF. There are a couple pig green grassy areas that are good for a ball game. The campground is very quiet. We saw turkeys, deer and raccoons. If you have a long haired dog, like I do - keep them out of the dry summer grasses. There are so many burrs and sticky seeds, it will be a disaster for your dog. Short hair dogs are probably fine. I checked, and there were lots of TV channels available for a broadcast antenna, but so many eucalyptus trees that a satellite dish might have problems. They were allowing campfires, so we indulged ourselves every night. I would happily stay here again. - SeaTeacher

This park is about 20 miles from home for me so it was a great quick getaway. Some sites are pretty close to each other but on the edge of the loops you'll find lots of open space outside your door. The gun range is close, but was only background noise for us, and stops at 5:00pm so we were never bothered by it. You'll find a ton of hiking and biking trails, plus some pretty good fishing here.
Redwood Road is windy, and doesn't have much of a shoulder, but you'll find pullouts fairly often. Also, watch out for the cyclists, they're on the road any time of the day, every day of the week. In California you much give cyclists a 3 ft clearance when passing. - MadAdventures

The road, after you leave Hwy 160 is a Levy Road which is very narrow.....no it is extremely narrow. If you like the wind this is the place for you. It seems to be a great place for wind surfing but I don't. Wouldn't ever stay their again. - RvStarShip

This is a very nice campground that is out in the middle of nowhere. Access is down a long narrow bumpy levee road. The campground is very clean, with large, level, easy back-in sites. We were in a site that backed up to the levee. We could walk up to the top of the levee, cross the narrow road and be at the edge of the river. There are benches placed along the rivers edge. We were able to watch boats and windsurfers on the river. It can get very windy here. We used this location to visit my daughter in Walnut Creek, which was about a 30 minute drive from the campground. Crossing the Antioch bridge from south of the campground is a $5 toll for 2 axels. If you are towing a trailer it becomes $20. We aproached the campground from I5 and then cut over on the 12 and avoided the toll with the trailer. We had AT&T signal, there is no wifi or other amenities in the campground. The people that checked us in were very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again. - corgi1

For starters, yes, it is very windy here. Which in the summer is not a bad thing. The week I stayed here the temperatures hovered around 100 degrees each day so the winds were a welcome relief. The camp sites are spacious and paved. The bathrooms and facilities are clean and overall the campground is very, very clean. But there are some very real cons to staying here.
1.) This campground is located north of the Antioch Bridge, which crosses the San Joaquin River linking Antioch, California with Sherman Island in southern Sacramento County. This means every time you come back from the city to the campground you pay $5 toll to cross the bridge.
2.) There are no laundry facilities on site and the nearest laundromat is 10 miles away...and you pay a $5 toll coming back across the bridge.
3.) The gates to the RV park close at 10 PM. You can still drive in and out of the park after 10 PM, but the gates are not automatic, which means opening and closing them in high winds is a hassle. And they kind of highlight the fact that there are seedy people fishing along the canal adjacent to the RV park at night.
4.) Only UPS and FedEx deliver to the RV park. The USPS does NOT. So if you want deliveries you better make sure they are coming from UPS and FedEx ONLY. Remember, both services use USPS to deliver packages, too. So even if you think your supplies are coming from UPS and FedEx, they don't always arrive that way. Your only recourse is then driving 10 miles to the post office to pick up your packages.
5.) The road to and from the RV park on Sherman Island is bumpy. Very bumpy. You better drive 25 to 35 mph on that sucker or else everything in your cupboards will end up on the floor. I kid you not.
6.) Internet is not really available. There is a WiFI company that provides Internet to people who stay here, but for a fee. However, in the week I stayed there I was never ever able to connect. And according to one of the site managers, using is isn't cheap and it is super slow.
On the plus side, you get two nights free after paying for a 5 nights stay. - Johnny Blood

Perfect spot to visit all that Napa has to offer. Small park surrounded by Napa hills, few blocks from downtown. Full hookups. We had a back in that backed to another trailer. Try to avoid if possible. Gravel spot with green space nearby. We travel almost full time and surprised by negative reviews. Was much better than reflected by negative on this site. Verizon 3G worked well. WiFi passable. Would definitely return. - smitty12

Basically, this is a dusty, gravel parking lot with a few trees and hookups. Sites are right on top of one another, and very narrow and short. They have some logs between sites for separation. Also, the hookups are paired together so that every other site faces the other direction. For back-in sites, you either have to run your hose and electric cord underneath your vehicle or head into your site if the post is on the wrong side. It is not a place I would want to eat outdoors or even sit outdoors because of the gravel and dust, and walking is difficult because of sharp, dry grass and stickers. Today, one 5th wheel is hanging out making it hard to drive past it, even in a pickup truck. Luckily, I have my own WiFi because campground service is very weak and not really usable. There are really only two places to camp in Napa, and the other is at the fairgrounds and closed to others for most of the month of August, so I ended up here. Will plan my visit better next year to stay there. - judy_online

The RV personal told us there WiFi was working great. Turns out it only works in the parking lot, not in our RV. The staff did not understand how to contact their ISP to resolve the issues. We were told to go to Starbucks for internet service. This place is brown and dusty. Looks like it might catch on fire any minute. The sites are on top of each other and there are zero trees in the RV area. I will never return here and I suggest everyone find another place to stay. - JanetBobby

Extremely friendly staff. We were parked next door to the owners home. There are a lot of full timers and some of the units not to pretty. Having said that we never felt unsafe. This park is an oasis in the middle of a suburban neighborhood. Lots of pets around, but no green grass for their use. Our old dog did not have any trouble with using the blacktop but the younger dog would not use it. We had to go off grounds for her. It is a convenient place to park if you are going to visit San Francisco. The transit station is close by if you are smart enough to understand how to use it. I believe the way to visit San Francisco is to fly in, rent a hotel and transportation and leave the RV at home. If we were in the area again and needed to stay a night or two in the area, we would stay here again. - cubadoug

This is not a "resort" type facility by any standard, but OK for a few nights visiting family in the area. The "daily" sites are toward the front, with the rest being long term residents. That being said, it was a quiet spot in an urban environment. There aren't many choices in the Bay Area, and this was fine for a few days. This place has been around for 75 years! Very helpful staff. - ronboett

As noted by others, there's a difference between the sites available for pet owners & non-pet owners. There's also a different level of pet sites. The lesser is limited to 30 amp sites that sit at right angles to the road. That's where we stayed & it was just fine. This is a nice facility. My wife & I, civilians ourselves, strive to only stay in the very best RV resorts. This isn't that, but it it isn't meant to be. It was a great place to stay during a Thanksgiving week visit to our military family son. There was always a site or 2 vacant. Most have satellite TV clearance. Especially in the "nicer", where trees abound, this could be a problem, as could trees coming in contact with larger rigs. A very spacious fuel station is located nearby. The commissary & BX, along with good size food court are even closer. - biosensai

We stayed for a week. The famcamp is mixed. Some sites, mainly in the no pets section are very nice, others (where we were) are pretty barren- no shade. The site maintenance is mixed, at least two sites have faulty circuit breakers, they trip at least once a minute (we learned our site (46) was one of the two). On the plus side the price is right,exchange and commissary are just blocks away diesel is available,laundry and bathrooms are clean and functional. We'd stay there again but would certainly try for the better sites behind the office. - captaincakes

The site is gravel and level. I did not have reservations as they do not make reservations if you are going to arrive within 30 days; however, they do have several sites that are first come first serve. When I arrived the office was closed but there were clear instructions on which sites were available for my size rig, length of stay, and with or without pets. I don't think it could be any more clear. After I got settled in my site, the office opened and I finished the registration process. The gentlemen in the office was friendly and squared me away quickly even though he continued to receive a million other calls. Kudos to him for his multitasking abilities. The BX and Commissary are within walking distance and there is a big field in the back to walk your dog. Overall, I have no complaints especially for the price. Thank you Travis AFB Command and MWR for taking care of us. Now... if we can only get everyone (mostly a small percentage) to recognize theses awesome benefits and not take advantage and ensure we clean up after ourselves and our pets. - Techn0
