I found this place out on the Good Sam search and it got some recent good reviews saying the couple that bought the resort were actively working to renovate the whole place. We chose a site that backs up to the lake with a gorgeous view. The weirdness starts here. There was only one other site occupied. As I looked around, more and more stuff did not add up. There were a multitude of partially started projects that abruptly ended, like flood debris was raked into many little piles with the rakes leaning against a tree. A very green fish tank was sitting in the communal picnic area by the lake outside with barely visible large, fancy fish inside. Sites were not swept clean and the recycling bins were full. The office was a mess and full of construction materials, but no sign of recent work. We found a dumpster in the other section of the resort and it was piled several feet above the top. The wifi didn't work, nor the cable. The weirdest, most unsettling, issue for me about this place, was in spite of several "private property" signs, there was a man fishing directly in front of our site until at least 1:45 - 3:30 AM(I was checking regularly). I was scarred and wanted to leave! We camped at Aurora RV Park and Marina in a Travel Trailer.

Location, Location, Location. This is a hard park to evaluate because the park is a really old park that has just been bought and the new owners are working to fix it up. The bathrooms are old and dingy which is acknowledged by the park asking for forgiveness while they update the park. The WiFi barely worked, the cable works but the channels consist of Religion, Shopping, and a western station. We got good reception from our sat. Despite that you have to stay in sites 1-7. The view of the lake is breath taking and the fishing is great. The manger is awesome. Stayed there 4 days and wanted to stay longer. The rate reflects 2 day of PA and 2 days of GoodSam. We will definitely be coming back to stay there again. We camped at Aurora RV Park and Marina in a Fifth Wheel.

Loved this park, the managers (not sure about the noisy owner, who showed up one weekend and made lots of noise prior to 6am) and the locale could not be described more than gorgeous! We camped at Aurora RV Park and Marina in a Motorhome.

Planned on staying for 2 nights but after getting set up and the need to have some mail forwarded to our friends that we are traveling with we opted for staying another week and have had a great time checking out the area clear around the lake. The view of the lake from our site is great and the park mangers are the best. The park is in the middle of renovations but hasn't been any problems during our stay. We will be back again. We camped at Aurora RV Park and Marina in a Motorhome.

Close by grocery store, gas stations, casino's, car wash that has rv/truck bay, restaurants, antique and thrift store too. K-Mart and auto parts stores are about 10 miles away in Lakeport and the Walmart store is about 30-40 minute drive to the other end of the lake in the city of Clear lake.

The close by Casino's are great places to get something to eat and spend some money.

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. We camped at Aurora RV Park and Marina in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Aurora RV Park and Marina in a Motorhome.

There is a Super Wal-Mart at the other end of the lake, which is quite a drive. However, this is an older Wal-Mart that has been converted to a Super Wal-Mart. The grocery section is very limited. Ray's Market across the street from Wal-Mart is quite pricey.

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. We camped at Aurora RV Park and Marina in a Motorhome.

We had a pull-through site, level, grass & dirt. Cable TV and WiFi worked great. Good Park improvement overall, since we camped here several years ago. Fire pit and picnic bench are located on opposite side of road near the lake. New Managers were very helpful and polite. Quiet at night. Across the road, back-in sites were on concrete. Good stop for an over-nighter. We camped at Aurora RV Park and Marina in a Fifth Wheel.

The park is a bit of a disappointment. Part of the park, the lake view sites, are on concrete on one side of Lakeshore Drive, a two-lane road with a yellow line, the other half is across the road and the sites are on dead grass and dirt, which is where our site was located. WiFi was advertised but can only be accessed in the clubroom across the street. Bathrooms are okay, which are also on the other side of the street, however, the outside door lock of the women's room was not operating correctly and was not being locked. I went to the restroom at 11 pm at night it was unlocked! It was a bit scary at first. I would have been okay with it if the restrooms weren't so close to the road. It is my understanding it is under new management and they plan on making additional improvements. Most RV parks that I have been to have supplied a map of the campground, channel guide, points of interests, emergency information for pet and people hospitals, nearest grocery, pharmacy, etc., etc. Nothing was given. Washers and dryers are $2.00 each. There is a clubroom, marina is iffy, but I think that is something they are going to work on. TV channels are very limited. The pictures on their website reflects the 8 or so lake view sites, not the majority of the sites. We camped at Aurora RV Park and Marina in a Motorhome.

Rate is for extra-long pull-through (other side of the road). Plenty of room for truck, 40-ft fifth wheel and small car. Could get muddy on rainy days, but nice enough. FHU worked well. Nice and quiet, especially at night. The Campground is in two parts: one on the lake with the office and one across a minor road. No issues there. A note: it looks as though they can accommodate biggish rigs on the lakeside part (we were there during the low season and a forty-five footer managed to cram in there), but certainly not the case during busy times. It's more for smaller C-Class and B-Class rigs. Would come back. We camped at Aurora RV Park and Marina in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a hard park to rate because it is in the process of being rebuilt. Makes sense that the owners don't want to invest in infrastructure that is going to be replaced. The location is outstanding--right on Clear Lake, close to a kids park, boat launching, restaurants. The park itself is clean and tidy, but divided by the main road, so one part fronts the lake and the other is across the road. The lakeside sites are quite small, but since we were there in low season, we were able to fit our 35' motorhome in without obstructing anyone and the view was fabulous. In high season that wouldn't be possible. The manager is very enthusiastic, friendly and helpful, so that is a big plus. The washrooms were clean, but badly need improvement (see above). The showers were probably clean, but not inviting. The wifi was pretty good, but waffled a bit. There was a games room, which we didn't use, but seemed like an asset. And there was a laundry, which we did use and was fine. We planned to stay one night, but stayed two and would definitely come back. It will be interesting to see how they rebuild. We camped at Aurora RV Park and Marina in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

If you're coming from the West on Highway 20, access is awkward and our Garmin GPS was no help. You can't turn right from Hwy 20 onto Lakeshore. Best to turn right onto Collier, before you get to Lakeshore, then left onto Lakeshore at the bottom of the hill. Or take Carson and turn right at the bottom of the hill. Or ask for directions if you phone for a reservation. It's not a problem if you're coming from the East.

This is our second one night stay at The Aurora. We frequently travel from Oregon to San Diego to visit family, and we discovered this place in August. The setting is gorgeous on the shore of Clear Lake. We have not found the park crowded on either of our stays. Laina in the office is a gem. She is beyond helpful and has a personality that bubbles. I would have rated the park 10, except for the fact that a massive remodel is in progress and some things are in a bit of disarray. Also, the owner's policy is to make a separate charge for electricity, even for an overnight. On both of our stays, however, Laina waived that charge. Nevertheless, it is quiet and the waterfront spaces are delightful. Someday, we will come for an extended stay and experience the fishing, boating, swimming, bbq on the patio under the grape arbor, etc. We camped at Aurora RV Park and Marina in a Truck Camper.

We enjoyed our stop at this rv park. It is obvious that they are working hard to spruce up the campground. ( reprinting, reroofing, raking,etc). The wifi worked ok( but not the best for Skype users). Cable tv good, their TV guide needs updating, easy access to lake ( beautiful view hills surrounding the lake), lightly travelled road, so not much traffic noise. GPS instructions rather confusing especially travelling south bound. nOTE: charges for electric over 8kwt , .25cents per kilowatt after 8kwt. We had a small heater on low and it cost $5 for the night...can't imagine costs if running a/c in the summer. Staff very accommodating, friendly and keen on any suggestions. We camped at Aurora RV Park and Marina in a Motorhome.
