Grass smelled like dog urine unfriendly staff. Very over priced and over rated! Would not recommend to anyone! - cyoung5

When we finally talked to someone on the phone, they assured us they had 65 to 70 foot pull-throughs for big rigs. When we finally squeezed into a spot, the pedestal was blocking our door. We did not stay. The electrical panel doors were falling off, allowing rain to get in. It just seemed very rundown to us. - Raquel

A small, no frills park about halfway between Visalia and Fresno.We stayed there for about ten days when our air conditioner went out in our home. The park has about ten sites for overnighters or longer and all sites are on grass which is cut weekly and watered every other day. There is 30 amp service and the water is from a private well and is so good. Pets are welcome, but must be leashed. We had a very peaceful, stay and would recommend it for anyone traveling north on 99. - Camper Sam

This park is fine for an overnight. The big issue is that they charge for the shower. They have water for the grass, but charge to use the shower (go figure). There is a nice bike trail adjacent to the park. The six transient sites are on grass and depending when you get there, they will have water standing on them. The park uses self-registration even though the office may be staffed. The plus is the ease to get to the park and back on the road again. - A hitch and hop

Was all right for a couple of nights. Do not recommend for a long term stay, did not have much to offer in way of amenities. Site map stated there were trash bins throughout the park; after a 10 minute walk we found 1 near the laundry room.
We were there in November, park had the feel it was closed for the season. - Our-Wandering-Casa

This place is not as described on-line. There is no "marina" as the water is all dried up. Nothing but a big sand pit where the marina was. Office was closed when we arrived, but someone did come and register us. Office hours are terrible, they are never open. I like that it is gated, but there really is no reason since its difficult to find. The only people there are permanent residents. It is all dirt pads and the garbage dump was overflowing. The laundry facility was clean and nearby our site. We stayed for 2 days while we toured the area, but will not return. The place needs better management. - DUstich

This is not a resort by any stretch of the imagination. You have to choose between having full hookups or having some space, both are the same price. We had reserved full hookups but our site was so narrow we couldn't put our awning out. There was no water in the river at all.
The gated entrance is a hassle since newcomers have to park right in front of it to register while current residents wait to drive through. The roads are narrow. The sites are set among large trees but our views were mostly of our neighbors' rigs. I am very well acquainted with the exterior decor of a certain brand of fifth wheel. It's quiet because most of the residents are permanent and work during the day. We didn't have a fire ring since they are not at the FHU sites. We didn't even have a picnic table since our site was a pull through and the only space for one is either in front or behind our rig. This park has a lot of potential if the owners would reconfigure the sites to provide space and FHU. Until then we won't return. - Fiesta on wheels

We arrived on a Friday nite hoping for a decent last night of vacation before heading home. We arrived and had to wait 30 minutes for checking in because they were at lunch. Lady was nice but gave us a spot that an RV was already in so we took a grass spot which was mostly dirt with cigarette butts everywhere. Water and electric worked good but space was small between RV's. We ended up in the party section so with the train and freeway noise I realized we weren't in Kansas anymore!
The sites were just not maintained and it looked like longtime residents were there. The other sites on gravel were better but still had a trailer park feel.
This place screams for security and a crew to maintain it. There were beer cans and trash everywhere and the pet leash rule was not enforced so beware if you have dogs. There was noise from other campers into the night and I don't think quiet times are even in the rule section. Freeway noise was bad but that's not the parks problem. It's the lack of personnel and security and maintenance. And a park like this needs operators to be there at least 12 hours a day.
Wish it was better and with a lot of help it could be. Wouldn't stay here again. - Offshrdude

This is quite okay for an overnight (which we desperately needed), but I would not choose it for an extended stay for what I saw. The sites are not very level and they are gravel, even though I saw lots of open green areas. The office person was very nice and accommodating. She acknowledged the sites are narrow so gave us the use of two (for the price of one) so there would be ample room for our four slides. Adequate 50 amp power. Many sites are full-time occupants, and the neatness leaves something to be desired. I understand it is a large property with some recreational opportunities but did not explore. I would use this again for just an overnight. - helenhelen

Very basic pull through (water, electric) on a grass lot. Just what we needed for a quick stop over for one night. We arrived in the late evening without a reservation. The really nice lady at the after hours number told us where to park and let us "check in" the next morning during office hours. - Dds

We were given misleading directions to the campground by an employee/host to start with. The spaces are grass with holes (hard to level), the ground is mushy. There were, I think, 4 high speed brakes coming in by a low-class trailer park. People from the trailers behind the park go through the campground with loud mufflers. The male host screams at campers to slow down; there's no way you can speed with those speed humps. Unbelievably it only has l restroom for men and 1 for women. You have to wait if one person is there...the sink, toilet and shower are in the room. You pay a $5 refundable fee for the key to the restroom (same key fits both rooms??). The next morning you have to wait around for your $5. Fee to be returned when the office opens. This is one of the worst campgrounds anywhere. - oldgeezer one

THIS IS THE WORST PARK WE HAVE EVER BEEN IN, EVER. We do this Full-time so we're in a lot of parks. The so called Wi-Fi is non-existent. The rest rooms are terrible. The so called stream is just some stagnant water in a drainage ditch. This park is surrounded by a terrible, run down old mobile home park full off junky places and obnoxious people, playing their loud music at all hours. This is a very run down area. DO NOT GO TO THE PARK. YOU WILL REGRET IT. - Mike and Darcy
Apr 2012 - $35.00
New addition to KOA system. Very large grass sites, but uneven and may have leveling problems. No nearby railroad and light traffic on nearby roads at night, but there is constant barking from dogs in downscale mobile home park next door. Promised Wi-Fi did not reach my premium (50 Amp/FHU) site. Owner stated that it is on the list of things to come. - Frank Fish

Due to upcoming events (several days away) we were directed to a lot behind the building for "Satellite Wagering". From the street to the lot where we were to park there were two locked gates. We had been given the combination to the locks. The lot had space for about a dozen rigs. All back in sites. Good hook-ups but it was all downhill from there! The surface of the lot was ground up asphalt mixed with cigarettes and dog droppings! It was disgusting and we will not stay there again. - User2209

We were one of two rvs in this park in Jan. 2012. It's very well kept. It's hard to find, however; although it's on Chance, there is no signage. Look for the guard shack at the gate. We rated this a 6 because there is a nearby train, and the fairgrounds is next to the CA Air National Guard and those planes are loud at night. If you're just looking for a one-nighter, this place is a good deal for the price. There is also plenty of dog walking room. - beckydmc

This is not an RV Park, but rather a bunch of hookups along the fairground buildings, where the public may stay when the "Big Fresno Fair" isn't on. Enter from Gate 2 on South Chance Ave, and pay at the Administration Building (immediately left). The office is only open Mon-Fri; no idea where (or if) you pay on weekends. There aren't any official site numbers, so you just park anywhere that you want. The hookups are 15 and 50 amps; no 30-amp hookups, so bring your adapters. Sewer hookups are along one building only; the rest are electric and water only. Be sure to test for electrical power before you unhitch; I found none of the 50-amp outlets worked, and half of the 15-amp outlets didn't work either. Circuit breakers are in a locked panel, so you can't reset them. I talked to three people to report that none of the 50-amp outlets worked; they all promised to send the fairground's electrician over, but three days later, he still hadn't showed up. Officially there is no Wi-Fi provided, but I found several open access points close to South Chance Ave. Buildings blocked the signal elsewhere, so you probably won't have access at your site. Avoid parking here if there are any events going on; I arrived a few days before 300 head of cattle showed up for an exhibition. Dozens of cattle trailers and trucks were double-parked along the interior roads, making it completely impossible to get an RV trailer out. I was trapped there for an extra day, until they went home! The official website for the fair is "fresnofair" but they don't have RV Parking information listed yet. I suggest that you phone before you arrive, to see if there are spaces available. - Neil C.

Small, campground north of Visalia, with predominantly permanent residents. Only 30 amp service and our 32 foot motorhome with tow barely fit into one of their pull through sites. Could not connect sewer hose because of small pull through size. Located right next to Hwy 99 so expect alot of road noise. Facilities are primitive and in disrepair. Pass on this one and head north to the next major town. - Happy G

Nice, quick park off the freeway. Dirt roads and tall trees. There is freeway noise. It's a good overnight place. Friendly staff. - mycelia

Well not stay here ever! The park is filled with out of date registration RVs some have 1996 tags. Not one friendly camper said hi. This park could be nice if cleaned out. It would take many tow trucks to move the broken down RVs. - titanium

I REALLY wish I could give this park a 10, but in all honesty I cant. So, I will get the negatives out first, then end on a positive note. This park is in a very seedy part of Fresno. Coming off 99, all we saw were rundown buildings and shady characters. We would have kept going, but we had just left a park in Madera that was even worse, and we were tired and desperate. We called from the road and we're able to get a site for the night. When we got to the park, the entrances were not clearly marked and looked way too small for our big rig and tow. We took a chance on one and although it was very tight, we managed. The roads are paved but very narrow, cars parked diagonally on either side of the roads. That's where the bad stuff ends. Office was closed but a nice resident called manager for us. He promptly came, checked us in, and escorted us to our site. We had a back in that was tight to get in, but the site itself was very level, well groomed and spacious (it was a corner lot). The park itself is well shaded ( helpful with the 111 degrees that day!) Many permanent residents, tightly packed in. Although some of the RV'S and mobile homes looked run down, the sites are well kept, and no one had clutter or garbage on their sites like we see all too often. Staff seemed very friendly and accomodating. If this park were in a better neighborhood, we would give it a 10 across the board. Despite all the trees, our satellite and hotspot worked fine. - KSAM14

The staff at this park have excellent customer skills: we were greeted as we drove in and directed to a drive through space. The owner was also very friendly and kind. The park (which is primarily a mobile home park) is lovingly well-maintained. Unfortunately for us, single-night RVers are placed right next to a very busy, noisy frontage road. Add in a nearby train's whistle several times overnight, we got little sleep. However, we felt safe here and there was plenty of room for us to walk our 3 large dogs on leash. There are a few run-down mobile homes in the park (someone else mentioned that) but most are well cared for residences. It is a fine place for a single night's stay. - beckydmc

Very well maintained park with the friendliest staff we've ever encountered. The big rig sites are on the frontage road but we never found the noise to be an issue. I give them a 9 only because the neighborhood is not the best, right at the same freeway exit is where all of the "no-tell motels" are located and you get quite the show as you drive by, but you do drive right on by. The park is several blocks from there, in a rural-residential neighborhood. As we drove up the manager ran right out to greet us and direct us to our spot and even helped with navigating the tight squeeze between 2 posts. (One of which my husband hit anyway because he doesn't always listen.) She checked on us occasionally, and even checked on our dog while we were out. While we were here they always seemed to have people going in and out of their transient sites, so make sure you make a reservation. If you must stay in Fresno, this is a great place and we would definitely recommend it to anyone. - Cristine

Definitely long term residents but they didn't bother us. Decent layout and easy to get in and out of your site. Our son enjoyed the pool. The laundry card policy ($10 deposit for laundry card) wasn't that much of a hassle. Wifi is only free for one hour per day. About an hour drive to Sequoia National Park. - jennifernelson49

We have stayed at this park twice before, the last time 4 years ago. Both times it was very nice and green; some grass, some mowed weeds. Big change! Mostly mowed weeds, lots of dead patches; millions of foxtails which are a big issue for those of us who travel with dogs. The worst foxtails were in the enclosed dog yard! Yes CA has a drought; we live in CA and have the same issues at home. This seems to be a case of just letting the place run down.
On the plus sice, the staff was very friendly, park very clean, quite a few full time residents but rigs/spaces were clean and tidy.
We share others' feelings about the "one hour free wifi", should be free/unlimited like all other RV parks.
For this park I would have expected to pay about $35, not $53. And that was after the KOA club card discount. We would not stay here again. - MarvMarvs

There is hardly any gravel, just dirt with a lot of grass growing on the sites where you park. It smells strongly of manure. It was dark when we came in, but we assume it is near or next to a feed lot. It is cold tonight; can't imagine this place during the hot summer! WiFi is "free" for an hour, then you pay! This is the first time we have Ever run into this at a KOA. We would never come back here. - Pdx discovery

After driving all over town trying to find this place we found that the manager wasn't around. She finally arrived and we checked in. She then informed us that the restrooms and showers were out of order. We had made reservations for 2 nights, but changed it to 1 after we heard that. After assigning our space we walked back to the end of the park and it was in terrible condition with old rundown trailers. We have a very large RV and there was no way we could pull it into the spot she had assigned us. There was not another spot available thank goodness so we asked for a refund and ran. This was one of the worst parks I had ever seen. - H1 -

We were going to be a late arrival so we made our arrangements over the phone. We arrived at 7 pm and with the freeway construction, it was almost impossible to find the place. When we did, we found an old mobile home park that was very dark, no lighting, no signage directing us to our spot. As we drove through looking for our spot, the residents gave us the once over as we passed. At that point, our only concern was finding the exit. We didn't feel safe, we didn't stay, and don't really care if we get our money back. - Dds

This is not an RV park but a seedy, old mobile home park in desperate condition with ancient mobile homes in desperate condition. It has recently been purchased, and the new manager is making improvements as fast as possible, but he has a very long way to go. Very nice, helpful manager. They have one site at the very front of the park, but getting into it was just too iffy for our big rig. We appreciated the offer to clean up another site where large equipment was parked, but the park is just not ready for RVers so we did not stay. - Nillawilla
