Friendly people, they gave us an adapter for the 50amp space but electricity didn't work at our spot. They offered us a different graveled site or in the parking lot along the neighboring building. With all of the rain we chose the flat lot. The train is RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET!!! Wifi was being re-done, so it didn't work. A bit pricey for the accommodations but there's not much to choose from on 99. - mac2school

Staff is very friendly as well as the people staying in the park. This was a great place to stay for overnight. Our pull through was long enough to stay hooked up. The only negative comment would be that the train is very close and does wake you up and it would have been nice to have a picnic table. Location is great. Roads are nicely paved. Large concrete patio. - Nini03

The park is clean and for $21 a good overnight stop. The spaces are tight and there are some low hanging tree branches. Use the second driveway to enter and exit. - retiredfields

This resort actually lives up to what a resort should be. The site is a combination of 3 types of sites. Back-in on the perimeter, pull thoughs on the interior and back-ins on the lake. The sites each have a concrete pad for your RV with full hook ups. They even have garbage pick-up daily @ your site. If that sounds to good to be true you even get 2 free rounds of golf @ the adjacent golf course for each day you stay. Some days have restrictions. We found this resort clean, well managed and for sure we'll be back when in the area. - lrp374

An absolute beautiful green oasis in an otherwise brown, dusty Central California (at least brown and dusty this year), just off Highway 99. Impeccably neat, clean and well organized, this is truly a resort. There are 87 campsites with variety of back-ins, pull throughs and 19 head-in sites that surround a small man-made lake. Nightly rates vary depending on the type of site you choose. Campsites are long, level concrete pads that are wide enough for strips of grass and hedges on either side to shield you from your neighbors. Wide interior roads are paved and have gentle curves that make navigation easy, even for big rigs. The park is part of an overall gated golf resort and the nightly fee includes two free rounds of golf. Non-golfers can opt for a discounted park rate.Amenities include daily garbage pick-up and something we've not seen before--fire extinguishers mounted outside at several points throughout the park. Although there's little to see and do right in Chowchilla, this park is a great place for snowbirds to overnight or rest up for a couple of days or so as they travel from north to the sunny south and back. It'll definitely be on our list of places to stay again. - boardman

What a wonderful RV park campground! Beautiful landscape, very clean with well kept grounds and big rig friendly. Long pull-through for our 43 ft MH with tow and didn't need to disconnect. Grass on each side of parking pad. The park is part of a golf resort and is gated. There's a wonderful bar and grill (The Final Round) at the Country Club overlooking the golf course that is easily accessed from the back right gate. They give you a key card to get in and out of the park when you check in. Would highly recommend staying here. Friendly and helpful staff. - Nomadiclife

We stayed one night at this RV Park and the hosts went out of their way to be welcoming and gracious. They provided us with suggestions for an excellent restaurant nearby and a local bakery both of which we visited. They offered with one night's stay, one free admission to the Castle Air Museum also ($20 value). Finally, they allowed us to have a very late check out to spend more time in the Air Museum which was so appreciated. We had full hook ups which worked perfectly. The location was secure and very quiet. We will be back! - TNDYoung

First, we will stay there again but only because there isn't anything else in the area. The woman that handles reservations was great. The man that checks you in makes you feel like a child. He lectures you about the rules. This park is a concrete parking lot with hookups. One RV next to the other. Behind the RV is large grass lot that could be very nice but it brown and full of weeds. The area around our space had 2 ft weeds. We had 50 amp but when we came back at night the fuse was blown. 107 outside. I was lectured that I should only run 1 ac. Did not go to the museum because of the heat. - Kathy gwin

We had trouble making reservations. Host did not listen to what type of rig I had and kept changing my site number based on my 'Airstream' (I don't have an Airstream!) When I arrived, the site assigned to me was next to a large, off-leash, big barking dog with the people listening to loud radio. I asked to be moved. The wife of the Host was very kind and understanding. The Host however, verbally 'reamed me a new one' and threatened to kick me out if I did not like loose, barking dogs and radios (said that's what you get if you RV). His wife moved me and told the people to put their barking dog on a leash so I could take my small dog safely out on a leash. Sheesh! Listened to the big barking dog the entire stay and people talking loudly at 5:30 a.m. while warming up their trucks to go to work. Site areas dirty. Been full-timing since 2000! OK, I guess, if too tired to move on. Won't stay again. - RoustAbout

This is a beautiful park indeed IF you want to get away from the city and enjoy the great outdoors. Facilities were spotless. All hookups were fine. The price is great. Dump station is easy to use. There is plenty of hiking, walking and fishing to keep you busy. Be prepared for: rough roads going out to the park, no wifi, very sketchy wireless service and active rattlesnakes. Just be prepared. We stayed here for 8 days and enjoyed everyday knowing that you must be vigilant and watch the trail or road in front of you. This campground would be a 10 if the roads were a bit better getting there. Its worth the trip!! - Beech35p

This is a beautiful campground atop a hill overlooking the lake. The area is rolling hills full of wildflowers and falcon nests. Antenna is good, Wi-Fi is good when it works. AT&T and Verizon signals fluctuate, hotspots are not reliable. There is absolutely no traffic noise. Wildlife abounds with howling coyotes, turkeys, falcons, gophers, bunnies, and tons of birds. The only disruption are the weekenders that descend on the campground and party all night until they leave on Sunday. - LifeRidingShotgun

This was a very pleasant campground, but trees and location meant no view of the lake. Had no trouble getting satellite reception, but no cell service at all. I had a full hookup site for the price shown with a senior federal pass. I only spent one night because of the lack of cell service, but would come back again. - judy_online

Pretty dusty in July. We stayed in loop K with several friends and took up the whole loop. Several people had boats and the nearby parking lot worked out well. Slide your fifth wheel hitch before you turn off the main road and onto the K loop road. Not a sharp turn, but the incline will get you (I found out the hard way). Stay away from the swimming pond, I was told the water is pumped in at the beginning of summer and pretty much stays there all summer long. Watch for rattlesnakes, I did not see any, but they're around. If you don't want to tow your boat back to your site and can rent a slip at the marina for $20 or $30 a night. Don't forget to check out the enormous carp swimming around the marina near the hamburger stand. - tnhnunes

We camped here with about 10 other RVers over a 2 night period in June. We had f/h sites in the C Loop (C-14) which was up a steep hill and tight for some large rigs. Backing up was not easy, and some spots were hard to get into. The K Loop would be our first choice for f/h sites. This loop is also adjacent to the lagoon which is great for the kids. Being in the C loop, we had to drive to the lagoon, quite a trek if w/out vehicle. Of course the main attraction is the lake, just OK if you aren't going to use the lake. I would probably go to Horseshoe Bend (where we stayed last summer) again before back to Barrett Cover. It's much flatter, has a swimming lagoon and some beautiful spots overlooking the lake. - User325

Electric hook-up hardly worked, no sewer hookup despite having been told this was a full hookup site. Otherwise, nice area, some spots hard to get into for larger RVs. - morganhillers

Everything is on a slope . Just patches of dirt with hook ups in the rear which we could not reach. Could not get level in area 4 where we were sent. They charge extra for each dog!! Nothing to recommend here except the location for a stop before entering yosemite. - kjen62

We camped at Mariposa Fairgrounds for 3 nights in April, at the same time the Gem & Mineral Show was going on. We'd had a long and occasionally scary drive down SR 49, plus we had a few questions about the facility, so we preferred to talk to a person upon arrival instead of using the self-registration kiosk. The staff acted like they were a bit put out by that.
Since Lots #1 & #2 were quite crowded, we chose to stay in Lot #3. We chose a spot next to the 4-H building, under a big shade tree adjacent to a nice grassy area. Level sites were hard to come by in this area, as was reliable wi-fi, but we dealt with both OK. Overall, we enjoyed our stay.
The biggest drawback to this place IMO, is the proximity of the restrooms to the RV lots. Requires a bit of a walk, so if you need to make a midnight dash to the ladies, carry a flashlight! The toilets looked like they could have used a good scrub, but otherwise, the showers were nice and clean and - thank you, God - no waiting for hot water.
Since Lot #3 was somewhat removed from the road, we did not have any issues whatsoever with road noise. The fairgrounds are located about 4 miles from town, and we didn't see a ton of traffic out there, but if you are a light sleeper, you may want to pass on Lots #1 and #2. Note to previous poster and whom it may concern: the swallows' nests in the gazebo have been cleared out, so no "target practice" on your vehicles. If we ever pass this way again, we would definitely consider camping here. - K-Bot

We stayed in RV lots 1 and 2, which are on the grass next to Hwy 49. It was early December and had the place to ourselves. The problem with this lot is that there are not very many flat sites and road noise. I have slept through Cat. 3 hurricanes so it doesn't bother me. Lot 5 which is on the East side of the track is gravel and away from the highway. The showers were clean with pretty good hot water and OK pressure. Verizon MiFi worked fine. They have free Wi-Fi in lots 1 and 2 but it was on and off. That may have been due to the Christmas Craft Show going on here. We'd stay here again if in the area. They don't take credit cards so it's cash or check. - pumper9x9

Stayed here for a week visiting family. RV sites are in rear of mobile home park, visually might not be the best. Lived here for most of my life and maybe understand the area more. Very quiet, no safety concerns. The couple that runs office are very nice. Price reflects weekly rate of $185. This is a cash only place, and office does smell like smoke. Be aware that restroom facility is older, maybe clean not appealing. Used shower in rv. All said nice stay, would use again because of its proximity to Madera. - Randoni

Good place to stay a day or two. 50 amps must use higher priced pull through. Older park with some junky perminant guests. - Journey39k

Country Living is a decent park conveniently located off 99 for an overnight stop. The price is $30, cash only. The smell of cigarettes is pretty strong in the office so if you're sensitive, you might want to send someone else in. The sites are well laid out and easy to get in and out of. The park was quiet and we'd stay again. - Travelfish

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
