3 RV Parks near Ravendale, California

I give this campground a 10 rating because it is beautiful, but please be warned: the road to it is long and rough and, in wet weather would be impassable. The first 10 miles is paved. The next 10 miles is fairly smooth gravel. The final 5 miles is slow and rough, but very drivable. We made it there in a 42' Holiday Rambler Imperial diesel motorhome pulling a full sized truck with no problems other than massive amounts of dust from the road. We had the place to ourselves, a small herd of wild mustangs, some deer and a few cows. There are beautiful wild horses everywhere. The reservoir is stocked with trout and white pelicans are eating them as fast as they can. Good trails, climbing, bicycling. The amenities look brand new. Concrete picnic tables, brand new fire rings, great sites on different levels, all fairly separate and private, right on the edge of the lake. If you even think it will rain, get out of there! Otherwise, it is a very remote slice of paradise. Beautiful stars at night and no city or road noise, ever. - careyfla

Nice little park. Easy to get to. There are good directions in the other posts and on the BLM site. We found the road to be excellent all the way to the campground. It is a donation site, so you donate as much as you like to camp there. Sites are level and large with fire rings; I gave it a 6 because it is in a close canyon without much of a view. We saw deer, cows, squirrels and butterflies. Down the road another 2 or three miles is a spectacular view and a gravel area large enough for several motorhomes or trailers to park. This is all BLM land leased to cattle farmers. You can access any of it. - careyfla

This used to be an actual resort, with restaurant and bar, gas station, and lots of park models surrounding the RV park. However, the lake levels dropped so that boats couldn't be launched there, and after a water main break at the restaurant, the resort was foreclosed on and closed. Sunset Properties purchased just one portion of the RV park a few years ago...now there are only 9 pull through sites available. The rest of the "resort" looks like a ghost town, since Sunset didn't purchase it, and it has basically been abandoned. That being said, the part that is open is very, very nice. The caretakers don't live on property, but they are easily accessible by phone and stop by every day. The grounds are immaculately maintained, as are the restrooms. There is a lovely grass area for picnics, with a playground and horseshoe pits. There are also hiking trails nearby. The lake looks better this year thanks to the wet winter, but it is still too low to launch boats. If you want to just come somewhere fairly remote but relaxing, this is your place! - Tami K

Now advertising itself as Eagle Lake Resort (eaglelakerv). We booked on line and then recieved a call saying that the park wasn't technically open for another 2 weeks, and that we'd have the place to ourselves for our 2 night stay - and we could choose any site we liked. We were warned that due to some leaks the bathrooms had no hot water so no hot showers. That didn't bother us particularly, so we arrived and drove around the RV loop and picked a site, only to find that the water wasn't working. Power and septic were ok, so after searching around, we discovered that there were only 2 working taps on the dozen or so sites on this loop.
The place seemed to be a lot more than 2 weeks away from opening, judging by the condition of the grounds, and the apparent repairs in progress. There was no water in the restrooms, not just lacking hot as we were told. The appliances in the laundry rooms were awaiting connection; lights were not working, light fittings were broken, there were numerous flooded toilets, repair debris in the shower and toilet blocks, water damage to roof areas and there was a general feel that it was a very tired, old place needing a lot of tlc.
There are some nice looking , modern cabins on site, juxtaposed against the sad state of the rest of the camp. A real shame, because it has so much potential to be a really great resort. I guess this place used to be a hit with the fishermen, but now the lake water level is low enough to deny use of the boat launch and so the restaurant is all locked up, the gas pumps look abandoned, as do the rest of the other buildings.
Some maintenance had been done, and grass had been mowed on part of the park, but an awful lot still needs to be done for this to be a viable destination spot. It's not at all as portrayed on the website - which would indicate a thriving resort rather than ghost town - and reading other reviews on Google it it seems as if it has been this way (and in steady decline) for some years. - SoAdventurer

The rate reflects a 10% AAA/Good Sam discount. Each site has full hook-ups with cable. There are two playgrounds, a small of-leash dog area, tent sites, some very nice permanent sites, horseshoe pits, boat dock, restaurant, lounge and a store. Verizon (phone and data) is pretty good. There is very friendly staff. We would definitely come here again. - campingandtravels.blogspot.com
