10 Parks near Rumsey, California
Jun 2012 - $30.00
I have reviewed this park before (a year ago) and what a huge improvement. Stayed here this past weekend for our annual White Water river rafting weekend with a huge group of friends and noticed big changes at this camp site. The previous hosts are gone and have been replaced by a very capable, efficient and friendly couple who are extremely customer service orientated and professional . They are visible all the time, making patrols around the camp site, reprimanding pet owners who do not pick up after their dogs and maintaining order in this beautiful place. The camp site was remarkably tidy and order prevailed this time round (no rowdy campers making noise till the early hours, no cussing , use of illegal drugs etc which occurred a year ago). The county of Yolo has now built a check-in office and a shop where one can get fire wood and ice. This is a nice useful addition to the camp site. There are also plenty of recycle bins. The sites are lovely with green lawns and many trees for shade. The river was especially welcome with temps in the 100's . The river's level was quite a bit higher and this made today's white water rafting even more fun than usual. I have given this camp site a 9 this time around after all the improvements. If it had sites with partial /full hook ups it would score a round 10. Well worth it. - AistreamFlightRN

Camped here for the first time for 3 nights. It is the closest Camp ground to where the Cache Canyon River Rafting and another white water rafting companies are located. (The purpose of my trip). You basically arrive and drive directly to the camp site that you have booked via Email/ telephone with a women at Yolo County offices.The camp host then comes to sign you in and give you a receipt. There was no one posted at the gate and I get the feeling that many people come for the day and do not pay at all. The camp site itself is located in a beautiful area off Highway 16, just 6 miles west of Rumsey, CA. The Cache Creek casino and resort is not that far away either. The location is gorgeous and the camp site has many nice trees and lots of shade. There are NO hookups at this campsite so dry camping is the order of the day. There are many taps available to fill up your fresh water tanks though and a good dump station nearby (oddly located in the middle of the camp site though). I did not see any showers in the rest rooms and the rest rooms looked like they needed to be cleaned more regularly. I was at the campsite during a very busy summer weekend and the camp site was full so it stands to reason that the rest rooms would get dirty quickly. It also came to my attention that there is only one camp host for this whole camp site (quite a responsibility actually). A sign is posted advertising for another Camp host so this might be you! As for the camp host (and his female significant other), they were pleasant enough on the first day I arrived , however on day two the host's wife/ significant other appeared severely intoxicated while riding along with her man on the golf cart. This is worrisome as camp hosts have the responsibility of ensuring that the camp runs smoothly and maintain order when people get out of line. As as feared, there was very little oversight of the camp site by the camp hosts. Unfortunately the Friday and Saturday nights and afternoons were both marred by noisy, obnoxious camping groups who drank alcohol non stop and smoked pot openly in front of their children. The foul language and cussing was very unpleasant as well, and showed a lack of any culture of these individuals. The river is at the bottom of the camp site and there is a small "beach" however this was pretty full over the weekend. If I camp here again, it will be during the week when the camp site is peaceful or I will book sites that are tucked away from the crowds (sites 38, 40 and 42 are good choices). I give this camp site a 7 because of poor/ no host oversight and host inebriation, dirty restrooms and a dump station in the middle of the camp ground. As far as natural beauty though, it would score a 10. Not that far from the Bay area either and the white water rafting is a great fun activity for the whole family or a group of friends. - AistreamFlightRN

Not my first choice. The only other park in this area was full. If I had seen the showers and restrooms first I would have kept on going. Didn't stay long because we need decent showers. The office was closed the entire time we were here. Some guy came around and swiped our card on his I phone. I wasn't comfortable with this. The worst thing was how dirty the restrooms and showers were. I've seen bad, but this was a health hazard. There is NO WIFI or cable. We need get a couple of channels OTA but not too good. I would not recommend this park. - JC69

I really don't know what to say---the pool has not been in service for years---the golf course is gone--there is no merchandise in the store. BUT I really like the park----very green-- a lot of trees and lawn. We were very comfortable. The access off the freeway is long but worth it. It would be a great park to try to build up again. I will stay again every chance I get. - Cameorover

Very disappointing park given its name and the golf resort. The sites are plenty big enough for rigs of all sizes, but it seems that maintenance is way behind schedule. The weeds are abundant and the cobwebs suggest that not too many folks stay here. The 9-hole golf course has not had any irrigation for a long time and it is not playable. The I-5 is visible but not a significant noise problem. The location of this park closer to Sacramento than Redding and south of Corning should make it desireable for many heading south from Oregon, or from SoCal folks going north who made it through Sac and need a resting place. However, new management, money and/or some promoting of this park may be needed to make it work in the long run. I hope that this place gets turned around. I want to return. - exportman

This park is right on Cache Creek with kayaks, a boat launch, decks right on the lake and lots of camping/RV spaces right on the lake. The owners are really friendly folk and the park is very well maintained. One of the family members who owns the park is really into vintage RVs so she has been buying up vintage travel trailers with the vision of converting them to overnight accommodations for those who don't have their own travel trailer. We've stayed in both the vintage travel trailers and, now, our own travel trailer. It's so nice to stay right on the lake and the sites are clean with all the power/water facilities working as they should. You can rent kayaks and rowboats right there if you choose. There is also a little park where you can sit under the trees on a beautiful lawn and watch the wildlife at play (this place is a birder's paradise). For those who wish, there is a swimming pool and their own little store offers ice cream, ice and fishing essentials. We've stayed here several times and always had a great time with first-rate service. - Curbside Car Show Calendar

Mostly permanent residents. Didn't use facilities so can't comment. The park in general was a little run down. But quick entry on and off to highway. Site was tight for a 40 ft RV. - littlegeneral

We travel in a 40' fifth wheel pulled by a semi, a total of 65' and I am happy any time I can find an overnight stay that has easy access. It was a bit tight maneuvering through the park but they had a pull thru site for us that was easy to get into and out of.
The showers were badly in need of updating and cleaning. The park seemed a bit run-down with mostly permanent residents. There was a field next to the park where we walked the dog.
I had called ahead for a reservation and was glad I did. They were turning people away when we arrived and we got the last spot.
The park was quiet, the staff was friendly, and everything worked. - blz

We had a medical emergency which necessitated our stay at this park. The staff has been more than helpful and the residents we have had contact with have been kind and helpful also. This is not a park we would have normally elected to stay for a long period of time in, but it has proven to be a blessing to us. The rate quoted is for a stay that lasted more than a month. The site is level, a pull thru and we have 30 amp. There are 50 amp sites as well. We are near a truck stop and I-5 but the noise has not been a problem. We are 16 miles from the city of Woodland. This would be a great overnight stay. - shovelguy

Nice place to stay. Off the freeway and quiet. More permanent homes in the park. Space sufficient for our rig. - DRBurns

Run down, old park. Mostly permanent tenants. Pull-through very good. Showers and toilets seemed clean, but hard to tell what with the excessive corrosion and decay. No frills, no extras. Marginally good for a single night's stay. No credit cards accepted. Friendly and helpful office staff. Wi-Fi didn't work, and outside tech service may have resolved it, but I was unwilling to wait on hold for more than 20 min. - LeeCA

We stayed for one night. Cost included 10% tax. A park with the vast majority permanents. Only about 6 spots for 'passer throughs'. People in office fantastic, but their last day is April 1, 2015. They were 'fired' after being there for over five years because the owner hired a 'property managment' company, and that company want to bring in 'their own people'. We'll see what the new people are like. The long term people's units are so-so. They seem like nice people. Space paved, perfectly level. Only used water and electric, but locations perfect, didn't have to unhook our car or use 'long hoses'. We would stay here again. Yes, the rear end of the coach 'scrapes' the pavement because of the sharp dip at the driveway as you enter and leave the park, but we will put up with it. - Kalama Traveler

Old, rundown and ill maintained RV park. Nearly all of the guests are permanent residents. There was only one other overnighter but many empty spaces. "The" 50 amp plug was not mounted in the breaker box on the pedestal but rather hanging below the box by its wires. Neither of the two pools are usable. The site is grass which is all dead; the picnic tables old and unsightly; and the speed-bumps old sections of pipe. It was quiet, however, even though there are many dogs in the trailer park next door. The Walmart in town is a better choice for a night's stay. - billj15

Overpriced at $42.50 per night and not a resort. A few small cabins are permanent residents. Lots of old rigs. Our 50 amp site turned out to be 30 amp. Management tries hard to please the customer, providing escort to big rigs, bringing a personal trash container, and offering every assistance. - goodspinach

Site was a dirt and grass almost level drive-through with picnic table, BBQ grill, and fire ring. Not all sites had tables or grills. One row had some cement pads for patios. Good cable TV and Wi-Fi. Laundry had 4 washers and 4 dryers. It cost $1.25 for the washer and $1.00 for the dryer. This park has a mini store and pools, but they were closed for the season. It also has a boat gas pump. Resort may be in its name, but it is not. We probably will not stay here again. - Onemoretrail

Good park at north end of the lake. There is a boat ramp and area to leave boats tied along shoreline. There is a marina, restaurant and bar also at the resort. Swimming was available down from the sites and we took our boat out across the lake to a better beach. Lake is beautiful and warm in the summer months. We are planning a trip back in the fall. - kazmir

Island RV Park is located right on the shore of Clear Lake.
The park is most full of long term residents.
There are a few spots for those that drop in. We arrived without reservations for a one night stay and they had one open site.
The sites are narrow. Our 40 foot three slide RV had about two to three feet between our slides and our neighbors slides on both sides.
OK for the money in a scenic area, but we will look elsewhere in the future. - Navy RV Traveler

Not previously listed with RVParkReviews. So we took a chance. And got lucky. Nice quiet park, hookups were good but just 30 amp. We did not use the water or sewer. Very laid back park, lots of full timers. Out of 30 spaces only 5 were available when we arrived on a Monday afternoon. Cash or check only. NO credit cards accepted. Met the owners, very personable. They have a manager who comes around to sign you in once you pick your spot. Luckily at 39 feet we took space 39 and parked front facing the lake so we used an extension cord for the 30 amps. Worked out great. We would camp here again. - road glide

We stayed here a few times. The view of the water is very nice. Great place to launch your boat. The staff was very nice and helpful. A few of them could use some cleaning up. The place NEEDS some serious upgrading especially the bathrooms. The bathrooms were DIRTY. If you saw the clean up crew it makes a bit sense. Would be nice if the RV sites had BBQ pits only the tiny cabins had them. No sewer but the honey truck was there every morning. This place is probably the better RV parks in the area. - cbettex

Great Staff in a very remote and beautiful location. Deer and other wildlife all around you. DO NOT approach from the southern route with a large rig! Come down from the north. Access through St. Helena should only be done in a small rig. I came in with a 41' diesel towing a SUV but it was tough! Not recommended! - David Buchanan

Very poorly managed and maintained. A really nice park but very run down. The manager lives in a house in the back of the park and cannot see the office from her home. When we arrived we waited with three others for her to "return at 3:00," even though it was 3:30. She finally came over from the house in back around 4:00. She was not very friendly and acted as if we were bothering her. We never found her in the office and had to go to the house in back to try to find her if we needed anything. The sites are large and nice, but ours was full of dog waste and flies. The laundry facilities were not working and we were told by others in the park they hadn't been for a very long time. We had to drive 15 miles to a laundromat. Its a shame because the park has a lot of potential and is great for families. - jimni5er

We were here with a group in the group area. The campground surroundings are still being upgraded, some with new construction. The mini golf was about 80% completed and there are plans to build a water park behind the hill of the camping area, as the area has been cleared and grubbed for survey staking. What a waste of natural surroundings! This is a large nice campground, but I fear it will be less desirable if they complete the water park, more noise and traffic congestion! Let Clear Lake be the destination and leave this campground as the accommodations. - Coastalview
