9 RV Parks near Patterson, California
Dec 2017 - $41.00
I was somewhat leery about staying here because other reviews had said this basically a parking lot with a lot of long term users and road noise. I stayed because of it's convenient location and to see for myself. I am pleased to say that those descriptions do not do this campground justice. There are a small number of long term renters but so what? This park is clean, convenient and quiet; while I was there anyway. My one nite stay extended to three nights because of an exceptionally strong high pressure wind system over California. (Remember the devastating fire storms happening in CA at the time?) The man running the place (I'm sorry I forget his name) was pleasant & helpful. The park isn't a huge park but was clean and the grass areas were kept up. There's a small laundry area in the main building/ office area. I didn't use these but they looked clean and organized. Freeway access is good and there's plenty of restaurants and fuel areas close by. I think cable was available but I didn't use it as there were plenty of OTA TV stations. There is a variety of restaurants close by, from fast food to sit down places. The Denney's across the street was one of the literally cleanest I've ever been to. Even the menu's looked like they had been just washed. Also right across the street is a big bar-b-que restaurant ( I can't remember it's name but you can't miss it.). They have a huge menu with huge servings and I highly recommend the the ribs. You can just suck the meat right off the bone and the the corn on the cob is a whole, grilled cob! - AV-Ed

Made reservation for pull through with their computer system only to find they had no record when I arrived and only back-in spaces available. Gave me the space for no charge but after unhooking toad, realized all their back-in spaces are only 25' deep and only 16'wide. They insisted the space was large enough to park the coach and jeep side by side but couldn't put out our slides out on one side, had to park the jeep 6" from the motorhome and the rear RV tires were on the grass. The water sprinklers came on late that night blasting the side and back of the coach. 75% of sites are long term campers (not a problem, could be working at the distribution center next door). Be careful! Unless you have a small RV with no slides stay away from the back-in sites. Make sure you actually have a reservation for a pull thru site. Won't be back. - Travel Happy

This RV park is located just off I-5 near Patterson, CA, although it is far enough from the highway that you we weren't bothered by noise. It is adjacent to the off-ramp plaza with gas stations and fast food restaurants. It is a relatively young park with asphalt driveways and gravel site pads. We had a pull through site that was plenty long for our motorhome and car, although it was somewhat narrow. There were full hookups with 50 amp electric and cable, no patio, picnic table or fire ring. Restrooms and laundry were clean and in good condition. There is WiFi included but we found it to be useless. We paid $23 per night with Passport America. - Coopsecondact

This is not a RV Park for people on vacation. The people who stay here live here and they are not retirees. The bathrooms are probably 60 years old and have not been improved since. They were clean but you did not want to use them. The sites do not come with tables. I would suggest No one visit this place. - Cynthia2156

Note to self...ask how close the train tracks are! The tracks are literally feet from this "park". If you don't mind the train screaming by and actually creating a wind while going by then you'll be fine. I like to sleep at night. All the hook ups are straight back and if you don't have extra long hook up equipment you won't reach. In addition there are no signs (as usual) to locate the office to pay. The people working here were very nice. Even the dog couldn't sleep. Never ever again! - Candy pop

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

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

Very friendly and helpful staff, nice shady site. Cable TV didn't even match the guide and Wi-Fi was very spotty.......forget it!! - Dennis H

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
