16 Parks near Raymond, California
Apr 2016 - $15.00
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

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

The KOA up the road was closed for the season, so we crashed here at the last minute. Perfectly adequate in most respects. We stayed in the most desirable area on the grass in the front of the fairgrounds. Very nice setting other than the road noise, which is constant except in the middle of the night. Wi-Fi and Sprint phone were great. Restrooms clean and nice, but we had to go to the other side of the fairgrounds for hot water. We dumped upon departure, and were surprised by the lack of water at dump site (probably a temporary condition), as the grounds are generally well kept. Wouldn't hesitate to crash here again while in transit. - Phx24J

This was our favorite campsite so far. Hiking trails, beautiful campsites, kind camp hosts, a lake, fishing, swimming, super dog friendly, a disc golf park, beautiful area....so good we can't wait to return. - Two_Huschels

This is still one of my favorite places in California if you want a super-quiet place, in a very pretty area, and slightly out of the way. Yes, it is probably not the best choice for a really big rig, but my 32' Class C fits in most spaces very well and sites are nicely spread out. Verizon service is best from one of the higher sites. During the week off-season, it is mostly empty, but there is always a camp host. And the dump station is often locked off-season during the week because local people tend to sneak in and use it without authorization. All I had to do was stop at the camp host, and he drove down and unlocked it for me. Lake level was up 8' from early December, which is nice but still not good enough for anything but kayaking, but the rolling hills coming in were green instead of brown for a change, with views of snow in the distant mountains. Very pretty place. - judy_online
Apr 2015 - $10.00
We paid the senior pass rate. Lake levels were very low but still good for fishing and kayaking. Campground is built on a hill so it was not very easy to find a site that was level enough for a difficult 40' MH. Large pull-thrus and back ins, some with electricity and water available around the loops. Verizon 4G was OK and 3G for phone was OK. Very well taken care of. Easy dump station access. Slow during the week, a little busier on weekends. Site 40 was very level and very long with a good view of the water. - rhianna

Starting with the phone call for a reservation, and continuing when we checked in, the employees have an attitude. Then when the WiFi wouldn't connect (it's Tengo, the worst service on the planet), their attitude was "well, it works on my phone." Many of their cable connection are male (should be female). At the office, they have double female adapters, if you ask for one. Sites are not level, and roads are narrow. To register, you have to drive to the back of the park, register, then turn around and go to your site (which you passed on the way in). They only recycle plastic bottles and aluminum cans. Other than that, the facility is nice. - ta96silver

Great place to stay to see Yosemite National Park. Front staff very friendly!
Very nicely landscaped and nicely layed out.
Rock drives and had to do some leveling.
Will definitely return. Very safe area and close to a nice town with shops and restaurants.
We were in a 35' motorhome with tow and had a pull through spot. Wifi worked great too! Picnic table and grill at each site. - 3TexasRats

Good KOA with sites cut into a hill side giving a spacious feel to your camp site. The Wi-Fi is usable and all other utilities function good. The restroom and laundry are very clean. There is a nice dog run. Less than a hour from Yosemite this KOA is high priced but a fair value giving its location. We would stay here again. - OldeJohn

Interesting rv park. As others have said a quick uphill climb and then about a mile drive to the park.
Park was clean,did need a few few trees trimmed but overall a quiet place with golf course nearby.
We will be back. - ChiefUSN

We do not recommend you stay here. The 1.5 mile entrance road is filled with tight turns. Two of them had signs recommending just 10 MPH! The first quarter mile of the entrance road is an incredible 8 percent uphill grade. Very difficult to get into golf course club house parking lot to register. You must reverse course to get back to the actual RV park. Roads in the campground are narrow. Over half of the park was inaccessible due to narrow roads, tight turns and trees right up against the road. Half the accessible pads had a steep section at beginning or end of the slot which would make it very easy to scrape the back of your RV. Only three other RVs there when we arrived. We now know why. Unless you have an overpowered engine and are a risk-taker, avoid this site! - Vince & Charlette

Keep looking. Road to campground is not good. Lots of sharp turns and hairpins. You have to go past the campground to the golf pro shop to check in. When we called about 30 minutes out they didn't bother to tell us that. The drive into the campground is narrow and requires a very careful turn. Have to make 3 (or more) point turn to get to first row. Pads are crumbling asphalt. Site is dirt. No where near level. Doubt you will be able to level even with pads. No TV. We asked for a site that would allow us to use our dish. Host didn't have a clue as to which ones would. We finally got it to work. Glad we unhooked at golf parking lot, would have been near impossible to find a level spot in campground to unhook. Grossly over priced for what little they have to offer. As I said, keep looking. In 4 years this campground ranks in the top 5 of the worst ones we have stayed in. We would Not stay here again. - Scott Charlton

To be fair it's California in September during the worst drought in decades. That said, this place could use some work. Sites are fairly good size but are not level. It's nothing but dust and dirt. Supposedly, there's WiFi but we couldn't get it to work the 2 days we were there. Even cell phone reception is sketchy. They are supposedly renovating, but all we saw were people cutting down dead trees. Expensive rate for what you get. - Eskie Mom

Very close to Yosemite southern entrance. Excellent layout of campground No gravel on our site and it was very dusty, would be a mess if it rained. Site was not very level need to invest in some gravel since they claim they are making improvements. Bathroom was dirty and needed a cleaning. Shower was good. Good cable and WiFi. - Biggyrat

Very spacious park and kept very clean. Nice laundry and bathrooms. Right at the south entrance into Yosemite. We were in section H and when we arrived there were only 2 RVs in this 50 space section. - Dennis P

We had a beautiful, level, tree lined site that was more than long enough for our 40' fifth wheel and 20' long truck. Volunteers escorted us to our site and assisted with back in. All utilities were well positioned. We were asked not to use our washer because of septic tank limitations. That was easy because the laundry room was very clean with a dozen washers and dozen dryers all in good condition. A load cost a total of $2.00 for washing and drying. The campground is gated, and we felt very safe. Cable worked well. AT&T had strong signal. Most of the RVers were permanent or seasonal residents. We stayed for 10 days and enjoyed the lovely park and friendly campers. Residents are mostly 70+ in age, and there is no pool. It is quiet and restful. - OH2SD

Escapee rate with a special discount for first time guests and includes electric. There is no sign on Highway 41 directing you to the park and the access road, Road 416 from Highway 41 is a steep downhill turn off of the Highway. Our Site was FHU. 50 amp, back-in, gravel and level with a concrete patio. The site was located on a hill in a Manzanita grove. Roads are narrow with some low tree branches that rubbed the roof and side of our motorhome. The site was challenging to back into because of the narrow roads, but once we were settled it was well worth the effort. This is one of the better SKP Co-op parks. Good satellite reception. Good park WiFi reception. Good Verizon cell and MiFi reception. Very clean laundry facilities. - Dave51

Very unusual park with staggered sites inserted into shady nooks with nice, woodsy views. Electric is included in the fee and Wifi is good as well as Verizon coverage. Cable TV included, also. Yes, the roads are very twisty and some fairly steep but it's worth the navigation. The office staff are volunteers and some seem a bit confused at times but all are extremely nice as are the residents. Many bird species abound and there are lovely walking trails within the huge park. I stayed a little over two weeks and would return. One caveat: Watch out for kamikaze golf carts. - mockturtle

The feel here was very "gated community" with a lot of rules but I think if I was an owner I might want it that way as well. I think if you're a golfer this is a great place. Though we received a "discount" since we didn't golf. The club is an easy walk and the restaurant was fine. The lake is really a pond but still it was lovely to sit outside there. The pool area is very nice with a grill you can use. We stayed a week here because we were using it as a home base for day trips. Both Yosemite and Monterey we a couple hours drive away. I wouldn't stay a week again. 4 full days would probably have been perfect for us. If you get a back-in site on the "lake" beware. We were told we would fit and did not. Parking is in a different area. They do pick up your trash every morning. It took me days to get the laundry finished because you are limited to using only one washer and dryer. - Nini03

We stayed a couple of nights passing through the area. This was our second stay here. Apparently we didn't rate the first stay.
The park is a short drive from HWY 99 (Exit 170) along paved, 2 lane roads. The park has gated access so you're given a remote to open the gate.
The sites are a mixture of back-ins and pull-throughs. There seemed to be the extended stay sites. There is significant bump to transition from the road to the pad similar to driving over a curb. Several of the parking pads are experiencing broken concrete. The parking pads are narrow. This park understands the simple concept of the importance of a flat, level site as the sites were level and flat. Distance or hedge rows establishes privacy between the sites. There are manicured grass lawns with the sites and throughout the park. Curbside garbage pickup.
There are a few trees scattered around the park so satellite reception would be dependent upon site assignment and your dish configuration. The park brochure didn't show any cable or broadcast channels. Didn't try to get any broadcast channels.
The park provided WiFi was excellent but occupancy was low. Our Verizon WiFi hotspot worked well. Didn't try the NET10 phone so don't know about the reception.
The designated fenced pet area was in a corner. It had a grass surface. There was a bag dispenser and waste collection station in the fenced pet area for waste. There was sufficient area to walk dogs along the park roads. But there weren't any bag dispensers and waste collection stations around the park for waste.
The clubhouse, pool & hot tub amenities and park's appearance made this a pleasant stop over. We would stay here again if the need arose while traveling through the area. Don't believe we would want to make it an extended stay site due to the limited shopping nearby and the complimentary round of golf for 2 per site per night. - bsb814

Great place to stay when visiting Yosemite. Beautiful site across from a lovely fountain; incredibly well kept park. Gated and secure. Lots of shrubs between sites made for more privacy. We'd been through some dirt and mud on the way there and the manager recommended someone to come to the site and clean our RV. He did a great job! - Betty2016

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

We stayed here overnight. Management was awesome. Apparently the previous management did not keep the park up. It now looks great flowers and greenery everywhere. They made accommodations for us since there were no pull thru's and we really wanted to stay hooked up and we still had full hookups. - Dave's Wife

Loved this quaint little park. Only drawback is so so wi-fi and trains that run at all hours. Would return to this park when in area. - N West

Level site for us. Others not so much. Crowded park. Sharp turns uphill. Saw RVs dragging. You were on your own to check in at lunch time. Park was not very attractive. Closer than most to Yosemite NP. - Breeze On
Mar 2016 - $39.00
We stayed for 5 nights, Friday, Saturday rates are $2 higher for the premium sites. The park is located in the city, convenient for shopping/restaurants. The office staff were very friendly and helpful. The sites as indicated by other reviews are close, as are the firepit/picnic table to the adjacent site. The Fresno River flows behind the park, waterfall at the other end. The sites are a combination gravel and grass. - User1835

We stayed for 3 nights. Seemed to be a little pricey for what you get, but then you are in a popular tourist area. Tight spots to get backed into with a 34' trailer, better be a good backer. Driveways are gravel, site pads are mostly dirt, but level. Each power pedestal serves both a right side/left side connection, not sure our unit slides/awning would have even had enough room had there been a unit in the adjacent site. We had power issues, receptacles got hot and breakers tripped when our load exceeded 20 amps on a 30 amp service, they need to do some maintenance on their power pedestals. Water, sewer, cable tv, and wifi all worked fine. Picnic tables and a fire ring/grill is at most sites. Friendly staff, good adequate laundry facilities. The short term rv sites are located along a river, although there was no water running during our visit. Other long term rv sites and mobile homes are on a hill above this park, but we had no issues with them. Great location for access into Yosemite National Park. Evenings and nights were quiet during our stay, however just across the river is a public skate park and an industrial equipment yard. The equipment started up every morning we were there and made noise from 5:45am to 6:30am. One morning during our stay the trash truck ran around 4:30am and I think the driver was mad that he was the only one working during that time as he made sure the entire neighborhood was woke up. We would stay here again as long as it was during their off season like this trip was. - Arlen
