There are very few RV parks or campgrounds in the San Francisco East Bay area. We needed a place to stay for a couple of months while recovering from surgery. This park is located in the San Joaquin Delta, half way between Antioch and Rio Vista, and is a great option in this area of California, especially for larger RVs. After the two-mile drive in on a narrow levee road, you're greeted with palm trees and wide sites, entirely done in concrete pavers. New managers really know what they're doing here. The park is very well kept and a safe place to stay, for a night...a week or longer. Rate indicated reflects the monthly rate of $700. This is our third stay at Rio Viento, and we will definitely return. Be aware that the wind blows here, which is why it's a destination for windsurfers, and they're fun to watch on the river right across the road from the park. We camped at Rio Viento RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Plenty of shopping in nearby Antioch and Brentwood, but must pay bridge toll when returning to the RV park from these towns.

This is a very nice campground that is out in the middle of nowhere. Access is down a long narrow bumpy levee road. The campground is very clean, with large, level, easy back-in sites. We were in a site that backed up to the levee. We could walk up to the top of the levee, cross the narrow road and be at the edge of the river. There are benches placed along the rivers edge. We were able to watch boats and windsurfers on the river. It can get very windy here. We used this location to visit my daughter in Walnut Creek, which was about a 30 minute drive from the campground. Crossing the Antioch bridge from south of the campground is a $5 toll for 2 axels. If you are towing a trailer it becomes $20. We aproached the campground from I5 and then cut over on the 12 and avoided the toll with the trailer. We had AT&T signal, there is no wifi or other amenities in the campground. The people that checked us in were very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again.

Yes, it is windy here, and the road coming in is narrow and on the levee, but it is passable, and the campground is more than worth the drive from Route 12. Sites are very large, not crowded together, and very clean and well-taken care of. It is also very quiet because it is away from traffic and main roads. It is nice to have plenty of room to park a vehicle next to your RV and still have room to sit outside with chairs and a picnic table. Verizon data signal was 3-4 bars of 4G service. We camped at Rio Viento RV Park in a Motorhome.

A rare 10 from us!! A very remote park right next to the Sacramento River. Concrete pavers throughout the park for the sites and the roads. Utility hookups were convenient and we had a good line of sight for our satellite dish. Sites were exceptionally wide and long and there was great distance between sites. We had water problems so we had to use the park showers for the first time since full timing began almost 5 years ago and they were OK. We would stay here again.

I echo the other comments that this is a very nice park. It is right "next" to the water, but you can't see the water from your campsite because there is a 15' tall levee bank between you and the water. We stayed with 9 other rigs and had use of the largest cabana structure, which was wonderful. It had lights and heat and totally kept us out of the wind. This is a great place for a family reunion, or other group of rigs, so long as you can entertain yourselves on-site because there isn't a lot else nearby unless you are interested in fishing or wind-surfing. We camped at Rio Viento RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

There is a lot to like about this park. The layout is big rig friendly, and the owners are a delight. The hookups are in excellent working order, and sensibly arranged. The bathroom/shower is private, and very clean. There is a slot to pay for showers, but they are free, save your quarters. There is no laundry. Now for the downsides: the wind makes sitting outside to eat impossible, and don't even think about opening your awning. They changed internet provider during our stay, it is now $3 a day. Too pricey for an erratic signal. We had a decent Verizon signal for cell and aircard. The road to the park is not good, narrow and rough, just go slow. The location for visiting family nearby was perfect, and we took the BART into San Francisco. The rate is based on a weekly stay. We camped at Rio Viento RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful RV park on the Sacramento River. Probably one of the nicest parks I've ever stayed in. The owners developed it with big rigs in mind. And they welcome large groups and even have "party tents" available for free if you have 3 more more rigs in your group. The bathrooms were spotless. The wi-fi was good and reasonably priced. No cable hookup, but you could get quite a few channels with the RV antenna. Yes, it can get windy - there was a huge storm when I was there, but it was kind of fun. It is family friendly although there isn't a playground for the kids which is unfortunate. There is a basketball hoop and a soccer net with balls, horseshoes, bocci. All in all, a gorgeous RV park on the Delta, and I will go back again. We camped at Rio Viento RV Park in a Motorhome.

On this sunny winter weekend, this place couldn't be beat! It's spacious, level, clean, quiet and not windy. The owners are very friendly, professional and have put their hearts into this special park. The narrow road makes the last couple of miles a little adventurous. Google Maps says the park is three miles down the road, but it's only two! We arrived in the dark, missed the entrance and had to drive another 1.5 miles to the county park to turn around. Signage could be better. We camped at Rio Viento RV Park in a Motorhome.

"Rio Viento" means "Wind River", and there is a reason that this park is a favorite for windsurfers and kitesurfers. There is a huge power-generating windmill adjacent to the park. The park is below the levee, which provides some wind shelter, but it blew continuously during our two-day stay. The park looks new, even though it is five years old. Sites are huge, level back-ins, made of brick, with wide interior roads. Excellent quality 20/30/50 amp power. I didn't find a laundry in the park, and the nearest one is almost certainly miles away on the other side of the $4 toll bridge to Antioch. The bathrooms were modern, immaculate, tasteful individual suites, with showers. The road to the park is a mile or two of fairly narrow levee road, but any size rig can negotiate it. We got the "introductory rate" of $30. I assume that's because it was our first stay here (their posted rate is $40/day). We really enjoyed watching the windsurfers right across the road from the park and the kitesurfers about a mile down the road. Although the address is Rio Vista, it's really closer to Antioch. We camped at Rio Viento RV Park in a Motorhome.

What a fantastic park! The park is immaculate in its cleanliness. The managers are friendly, informative and very professional. The park is on the Sacramento River and offers great views of Mt Diablo. Sunsets are amazing. The sites are very wide and bricked with grass areas. Utilities are top notch. The only down-side of the park is the wind. We camped at Rio Viento RV Park in a Motorhome.

This has to be the best RV park we have ever stayed at. The people were great the sites were clean and level. The area was peaceful. Can be tough to find but a gem when you do. Next to the river for fishers. Near enough to the Antioch to visit family, secluded enough to feel like you are far away. Forces you to be quiet and still. We needed to get away from the big city hustle. I can't wait for the next opportunity to get back there. We camped at Rio Viento RV Park in a Motorhome.

Back side of the levee on Sherman Island. 1.8 mile levee walk to a public boat launch. Lots of Sacramento river fishing just yards from your site. Windsurfing, as it is very windy, typical delta. We had a rally here with 34 rigs; everyone enjoyed it, no one had any access issues. The park is paved with 650,000 paver bricks, all level. The club room is a large metal building, very nice, with propane heaters (you supply the propane). All tent patio rooms come with BBQ's (again you supply the propane) and utensils. Very quiet day and night, no traffic, miles from town. The on site manager was awesome, as was the owners dog, Sugar. The pictures on the website are accurate and barely do it justice. This is such a nice place I really should not tell you about it. We camped at Rio Viento RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
