This is 95% an ugly and dusty workers campground!
When we arrived a unfriendly host (owner?) was sitting in his office.
I knocked on the door and asked for a site for my motorhome.
Visibly annoyed, he referred me to me to pick one of the free spaces in the first row and come back tomorrow in his office to pay.
The grass what you see on the photo of the website is only in the front of the row, all campers stay on a (in small pieces broken) concrete pad with dusty gravel on both sides. Don't trust the pictures on their website!!!
The restrooms and showers were very dirty and smelling like an old sewer hose.
If I was not in the middle of nowhere I would have driven away! - Columbus

A quick stopover by the freeway, excellent location. Bathrooms were excellent, wi-fi was slow but usable. The driveways are wide and paved making access to our site very easy. The site is gravel and level but the wifi is slow. - JohnnyCash

Called ahead for a pull through for a 39' coach w/tow. Arrive to a very narrow gravel site on the end, where it required to unhook the tow in order to make a very tight turn to depart. Just staying overnight we were not wanting to unhook! The pull-through sites are very close with no amenities. This is our 6th time staying here because it is a convenient stop on I-5 for us. This well be our last! Not only are the pull-through site very inadequate, we had a VERY inconsiderate neighbor that proceeded to wash his very close rig and spray our 4 day old $400.00 wax job. There was no management to report this rules infraction to. The multiple times we've stayed here, the management has been very unfriendly and give you the feeling you're interrupting their life. Even trying to joke or make light conversation with them doesn't work. If you want a quite night ask for a site along the back fence as the road around the park is to several very large distribution centers (Amazon for one) and trucks run all night). Over the last several visits we have seen the park deteriorating with lack of upkeep and filled mostly long term stays. We will not return!!! - RJWebb

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. - LM&TinView

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

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

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

After about 5 nights in National Forest dry campsites, we were looking for a reasonably priced campground with showers and FHU to recharge ourselves before we headed into Yosemite. Found this spot on the Good Sam app, and made the call. Woman that answered was friendly, and when she told us the price, I asked her what the catch was! 2 adults and 3 kids, and there were no extra charges for the kids. Nice surprise there, as so many places gouge you for kids.
Our site was a pull thru, not huge, but shady, and had a table. We arrived after the pool closed (8pm), but the warm shower kinda made up for that. If you're a dog owner, the huge dog play area will be a big plus.
Others have complained about noise. I heard 1 train during the night. Try camping along the California coast sometime, then tell me about trains. Campground is probably 1/8 mile from 99, so some highway noise should be expected, but it was actually really quiet.
It's an older park, and if you're into paying $100 for an RV "resort" you'll be disappointed. If you're like us, and just need a quick stop with all the facilities, at a reasonable price, you might like this place. We did. - TheCurtster

This park was a delight. The clerk who checked us in was friendly and helpful. The WiFi was free and strong: I was never kicked off while checking e-mail. We could not receive a satellite signal for our TV, but the park provided free cable with 19 stations. We do not have a pet, but saw that the dog lot was a large, grassy fenced in area with even a shady place for owners to sit and visit while their pets played. The published prices showed that the laundry was a bargain. - WNC Traveler

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
