8 Parks near Patterson, California

This is a Motel 6 of campsites. It's right along Interstate 5 besides all of the usual highway chains of motels and eateries. The sites are narrow and the place was crowded even in February. The campground is essentially a large parking lot with spaces for campers. It has full hookups available, television (which we don't use) and wifi. The speed of the wifi at our location was painfully slow. Traffic noise from Interstate 5 was constant all night. While the staff are reasonably friendly, the facilities do not seem to get cleaned very often for such a large campground. All in all this is only a place to lay your head if you have no other place to stop in this part of California. - Walter48

Easy access from I-5 and easy access into and out of our site. Far enough from the freeway that road noise was not a problem. We had a "premiere" pull through site. These were about 15 diagonal pull throughs in a large gravel parking lot with hook ups. Not very aesthetic, but it worked. The rest of the park were back ins. They had grass, shrubs and room to set up out door furniture. For more than one night these would be preferable. Limited cable and good water pressure. - thyde

This is a very basic park located in an area where there aren't many choices. Sites are pull thru or back-in and vary greatly in length. We were able to get a pull thru that was long enough for us to stay hooked up with our 42' 5th wheel. Sites are gravel and fairly level but VERY close together. Our neighbors were just a couple feet away. No patio. No picnic table. No cable. No pool. Free wi-fi that is spotty. Laundry room, clubhouse, very small dog park, and small playground. Few stores/restaurants close by. Located just off I-5. Lots of full timers. They accept Passport America Sunday-Thursday only. Ok for a overnight if you get the discount rate. - travelswithpuppies

Large, open grassy area with level sites. (I didn't even use the jacks). Sites are full hook up, back in. No amenities. Surrounded by oleanders, which makes it private. However, the campground backs up to the Union Pacific main line. Heavy use of whistles. But the train noise seemed to quit about 9:00 pm. We were not awakened through the night. Either we were very tired (we were) or trains didn't run through the night. But we will definitely stay again for an en route campground. - User3119

This is about as basic as you can get and still call it an RV park. It's a grass lot with utility pedestals along the periphery. The host was a nice guy and let me park perpendicular to several sites so I wouldn't have to unhook. There was just one other rig there. The grounds appeared reasonably level. There are no bathrooms, showers, Wi-Fi, or any other amenities. The train track along one side was a bit noisy but not enough to keep me awake after a long day of driving. They love to water the grass, sprinklers were going the whole time we there, about 12 hours. - LMandTinView

Very basic, big grass field with hookups. Good power, good water pressure, no internet but our Verizon air card worked well. With TV antenna up, only got about 5 channels and they were sketchy. Only park in the surrounding area so I would stay again if in the area, you get what you pay for. - DonnaandPete

This is a great campground at the right time of year if your rig is small. Many sites along the Stanislaus River in riparian forest. Trailer size limit is 21 ft. and motorhome limit is 24 ft. Lots of mature trees to provide shade but the area gets very hot in the summer. Pads are asphalt. - oldmac

For Elks members only , very nice park eight pull through's possibly two more that exist but not sure, was told that if the area is full you can Boondock around the perimeter of the Elks Lodge parking as long as you're leaving early in the morning. I understand that as of January 1 2017 , rates are changing Modesto members $20 members at large $25 this is still a bargain since there is not too many options to park in or around Modesto. The access is simple off of Highway 99 very easy to get to definitely follow the instructions if heading east you will actually turn on Pentecost which dead ends into charity way which is kind of like a turnaround where the Elks Lodge is located . As far as the sites they are fairly level on a gravel dirt base which seem to drain real good they have a drywall out there for heavy winter rains but I'm thinking it could be a little dusty in the summertime not sure, winter time rain not a problem no mud exist. You are definitely in a rural area of North Modesto at this time not much out there so your experience is fairly quiet . The dump station is located as you are pulling out all on a asphalt area for a clean no mess experience, very nice, drainage and slope is excellent. The lodge is very nice updated has an excellent lounge and seems to be more in touch with the times then some of the other lodges we have visited. We will stop here again when in the area. - monaco cruiser

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

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

This is a very small campground with very few full hookups. Mostly water and electricity. Alot of space for dry camping.
To overrun with residents taking most of the full hookup sites.
You can only stay the 14 days max which is kinda sad with so many permanent residents. - sweetruby

Spent a month here, as this was our only option while visiting family.This "not a resort" is situated in the armpit of California. It STINKS of onions and garlic and nasty smells emanating from the Merced filthy drainage ditch ( not a river on this property.) Our site A6 was so small and on the corner where everyone drive in and out of the park, we asked to be moved and were told they could not move us. THEN...we started noticing the ladybugs in the camper..10 to 30 a day. Yuck, kept killing them, and there were always more. On the day we left, we pulled the slides in and there were THOUSANDS of ladybugs living in the slides!!!!! OMG, they were everywhere. We spent hours getting rid of them, and it is now 10 days later, and THEY ARE STILL ALL OVER THE RV!!! We told the owners, their response...oh, it is the tree on the site, it attracts them. No offer to help clean it up, or help with the situation. Hello, if you knew that, why did you not take care of this. I cannot even tolerate my RV anymore as those damn bugs keep on coming out of the woodwork, no matter what we tried. STAY AWAY FROM THIS HORRIBLE PLACE. - Kbrez

I have stayed at this park both as a short stay and now as a long term/month to month.
I loved it as a short stay. The short stay area is towards the front of the park and has easy access to the play field, dog park, showers and restrooms. It is also where many of the pull through sites are located. I did not use the wifi or cable so cannot speak to them.
They are very good at getting folks to keep their dogs on leash which I greatly appreciate! They are also very accepting and welcoming to my 2 Rottweilers who are very trained and well mannered.
As a month to month, less happy so far. Even though I told them I needed a pull through and wanted a shaded spot when I returned in 3 months, I was assigned a back in, full sun spot at the very rear of the park, as far from the amenities I use as I can be in the most well lit area of the park, making it very difficult to sleep at night. I have been here for 2 weeks and promises to find a better spot for me have been for naught. - RottsNScotts

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
