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

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

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

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

Friendly, helpful staff. Nicely stocked camp store with homemade fudge and pizzas made to order. The roads were narrow though paved which was good on this mostly hilly campus. Sites were adequate but close together. Many trees which affected our Satellite signal though some others were open to the sky. Cable TV worked pretty well. Some cell services were just completely out of luck. And the wifi was functional but not as good as it could be. Frequently dropped connections and could not get back on for hours. We were there to see Yosemite. It is the closest full hookup campground to the west entrance. 25 miles into the park but not a bad drive. - DMcKitt

This is a typical KOA: little expensive, great location, clean, accommodating all comers. The road to the office is steep and narrow, the sites are gravel and dirt. The office is friendly and efficient. The store is well stocked with groceries and memorabilia. - MJHP*28

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

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

The grounds and amenities are pretty good. The pool is great, the clubhouse is in remodel and supposed to be done Sept 9. Most of the sites are very tight with no picnic tables or hang out area. They are about to do some re-grading; hopefully they will put more space between sites. We had a hard time parking our tow vehicle nearby. Everyone we encountered was very friendly. They enforced quiet hours to the cabins nearby. - Colorado Trio

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

Extremely nice park. Very clean. Activities. Rec room. Large Laundry room. Craft room. Library. Large Video library. Woodshop. This park was run like a well oiled machine. Very friendly people. More like a hilly state park instead of RVs all in a row. Well planned sites with concrete pads. Good Wifi. Cable TV. Lovely park.
The only con was that one could not use their washer, or dishwasher or be fined a hefty fine. They have 33 septic systems that are costly to keep maintained and ask that you use the laundry on site. I would have given this a 10 if I could have used my own washing machine. - User3274

I've never given a 10 rating before, but I can' think of anything they could do better. This park is clearly designed and operated by full time RV'ers who really love it. The sites are very spacious and the terrain adds great views and additional privacy to most of them.
The facilities are impeccably maintained. The grounds are immaculate. Volunteers are everywhere working on keeping everything up. We had a cable TV issue and 15 minutes after I mentioned it to the park manager three knowledgable, "experienced" guys showed up to fix it. Problem solved.
The park only uses about half of their 140 acre site. The rest is reserved for trails and open space. We had no lack of exercise and the dogs loved it.
Even the WIFI works. AT&T data and phone signals are strong. With cable we never tried OTA TV.
Our site was very spacious, private and quiet. We could barely see the neighbors. The roads can be tight, but we had no problems in a 43' motorhome, especially with the escort service provided. - bobcovey

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

45' m/h with F250 tow. 2nd trip. The park is very nice. The first time we stayed we were told there was overflow parking for our extra vehicle (we were towing and had additional car). This time told that we would have to park at golf course, when the same overflow had spots. The overnight spots are all 70' concrete with 30/50 amp, water and sewer. Plenty of space for slides. they have smaller sites for longer stays/smaller rigs. The park is pleasant, a pond with geese, a dog area that's gated. Each time the neighbors are friendly. - CupcakeRIA

I agree with the late 2016 reviews. Some of the earlier complaints may have been due to the severe drought in the Central Valley. But we are here is the middle of a big series of rain storms! Cable TV was good, no HD. Wifi excellent. Easy access from Hwy 99. A bit overpriced. Back in sites are $40, ours was a pull-through. Too wet to try the free golf. :-( - rncordy

This has become our stopover point when traveling north or south along California's central valley. It is an excellent, well-maintained RV park with roomy sites and a friendly, accommodating staff. Many parks try to claim that they are resorts...this one really is. We highly recommend this park. - steben6
Jan 2017 - $33.00
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
Aug 2016 - $39.00
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
Apr 2016 - $21.00
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
Nov 2016 - $38.00
Nice clean park. Very friendly staff that was willing to let us move to a better site when it came open. Easy in and out with 41' class A and toad, although necessary to unhook toad at check in due to tight quarters. Nice location in town and easy access to south entrance into Yosemite. - Finn
Oct 2016 - $35.00
We stayed in a pull through site. There are only two. It was not next to the river, but we preferred it and would stay there again. We had a hill behind us and the access road in front. We liked the separation and privacy. Roads and pads were gravel. We had two small trees.
The river is not free flowing and more like a pond.
The school across the river and the business next to it were a bit loud. After about 5:00pm, the noise dropped and it was quiet at night. - PKI

Nice, quiet park. Sits down in a hole and noise of traffic is nil. Has a nice swimming hole and creek was running. Spaces nice: all backend so could be tight. - DRBurns
