Jul 2016 - $20.00
This daily rate is what it will work out to be when divided by 30 (so it may be just a bit more for the week). This is a minimum stay of 1 week RV park. Monthly rent is $545.00 which includes water, free mail forwarding service, electric (not extra), garbage, sewer and free GOOD WiFi. This park also has a laundry room and if you prefer to dry outside, there are 3 clothes lines to use for drying outside. Centrally located to everything. Walgreens, Tire store, Target, and various restaurants. - Denise M Smith

My wife and I have spent the last six years here: from October to March. It is a great park. The manager runs a tight ship, but the same rules apply to everyone. You have a gravel suite for RV. Asphalt suite for the tow, and a concrete patio. I would have given it a 10, but for the spotty wifi. Owners don't want to invest the money. We still keep in touch with friends here.
(Lot spacing is spacious with some shade. Site surfaces are asphalt, gravel and grass and feature a patio.) - Guy Wassather
May 2015 - $17.00
Price reflects weekly (minimum stay) rate of $130- extra days were $27.50 each.
If you are self sufficient & have your own internet, this is a great park with large sites well set out with privacy from tree & gardens. Good value for nice setting. This is a mobile home park which is being converted to a RV Park - mostly RV's now. The park felt safe and has supermarkets and services nearby.
The down side is if you require internet, you need to go to the club house. The main restrooms appear to be shut down with just a single very dated shower/toilet (each) available which forms part of the clubhouse. Cleaning appears to be once a week.
We had no response to emails or telephone messages left requesting a reservation and had to keep ringing until we got through (Office hours 10-5 only). There is also quite a few sirens due to closeness to highway patrol.
We would stay here again. - Kiwigirl

This is an older park, but it is being maintained adequately. The campground host was very helpful. There is some disparity between the name in TrailerLife directory and the campground's website versus the park signage you actually will see when you drive up. Either it is *becoming* "Sacramento Shade RV Park", or it *used to be* called that, but as of today's date (4/2008) it is "Oak Haven RV Park". Although the park is close by the highway, the park is actually pretty quiet. VERY convenient access to downtown Sacramento, Old Town, and Arden Mall. This park seems oriented more to full-time residents than transient RV'ers. - JimF

We could not maneuver our 40' motorhome into this park. The manager called us earlier in the day and because we were arriving late (8pm), instructed us to make a "quick right" into the park. We had never stayed here before and came in from Consumnes River Blvd. Big mistake. The road is narrow and dark with low hanging branches all along the way. The 'quick right' was virtually impossible. A woman ran out to meet us and told us to continue another half mile to turn around to enter from the north. Even after doing that, our 20 year RVing experience told us the steep entrance road was too risky especially at night. We opted to dry camp overnight at a nearby Home Depot. - billandmemakes3
Jul 2014 - $25.00
Lots of space between camp sites. Most visitors stayed at least a few nights so not so much in and out activity which was nice. Lower level has well placed mature trees for good shading Delta breezes to cool off. Great view of river. Marina has small swimming area to dip. Office staff very helpful, accommodating and friendly, the type of people you always want to find at campgrounds/RV parks. Laundry on site (2 washers, 2 dryers). Wi-Fi spotty if far from marina office but it is free so sit yourself outside office on the deck to watch the sunset while you surf the net. Rate is unbeatable. $25 day is weekly rate. Convenient location to shopping for necessities (Nuggett food, Lowe’s, Target, Earth First). Lower level does not have sewer hook up. Four full bathrooms available, 3 keyed (pay $15 deposit), one available to EVERYONE so avoid that particular unit. Lower level entry a bit steep. Our site required two layers of levelers on one side. Most other sites used some kind of leveling adjustment as parking was on grass. Upper level in full sun and mostly permanent residents (some units very old). Ownership heavily waters during summer heat to cool down camp area. This created an ant invasion every watering. Some road noise from River Road but dies down at night time. We had extended stayed due to having business and family in the area. We would gladly return for shorter stays but no sewer hook up does gets old. There is dump station but you have to exit lower level, go down the road at least a mile to turn around, enter upper level camp area, then exit upper level, go down the road at least a mile to turn around around to come back to enter the lower level. - THTH

Nice park you would never know its there. VERY close to downtown Sac- but far away. Check in is OK- Ft counter folks are kinda happy your there. Lots of shade/ weak wifi, but we have stayed here a few times, and keep coming back- Lots of shopping/food within a few miles. Old Sac, 10 min away. We will keep coming back. Fun to watch all the boat traffic on the river. - Tredguy

The spaces are just long enough for the RV, all back-in. Each site has grass, landscaping, and trees.
While the neighborhood may not be the best, the park itself is very clean and well kept. The manager expects people to follow the rules. He was super helpful and got us parked in no time.
The only negative about this park is that it is close to the freeway so there is noise.
We would stay here again. - Sespeausi

Best park in Sacramento. Manager runs a tight ship and takes pride in running a beautiful park. Lots of long term residents but sites are very well kept. Grassy fenced in sites are very private. - PeterT

This RV park proves that a business is only as good as the person in the front office.
We've RV'd from Alaska to Texas and have not, thankfully, received anything near the ignorance and incompetence we encountered here.
My hubby booked ahead over the phone for three nights in this park. We got an email to give us a confirmation number, nothing more - no instructions or directions and certainly no lot/pad number. Arrived at 6:30 PM to discover the office locked. Looked around for any sign of communication for us. (Some sheet with our surname in large print was the least we should expect.) Nada! We phoned the number listed for the office. No response to our message. We picked an empty lot and got ourselves parked with some effort. Hooked up to the power, but no access to washrooms, pool, or WiFi due to no information provided. Went to bed thinking we'd done our best and hadn't disturbed anyone. Hubby walked over to the office just across from us at about 10 AM. He was 'greeted' by the manager who turned bad into worse. After a complete display of idiocy in front of others in the office, he ordered us out of the park "in ten minutes" and began to call the police. We happily took our leave. As yet, we have not had a return of the money. (as of October 26/15)
The owner of this property needs to be aware of this manager's conduct and that his employee stole two nights accommodation from his business when he ordered us out for no cause.
As a traveler, give this one a pass. It's not worth the aggravation to deal with someone like this.
We found this a very cramped park. It was difficult for us to move around inside the park pulling the trailer as lots were so full that vehicles were parked on the streets. Also a contortion to park. It is a very noisy location due to its proximity to the interstate. The entrance into the park is a tight turn and it is on a busy street. We did not get to see any of the facilities that we paid for nor did we get to test out the 'free WiFi' as we were not provided password/access codes. We could see the swimming pool near the entrance but could not make use of it. The lot we found was graveled and level and had a cement pad on one side. There were shade trees around the site. The park is not in the best of neighbourhoods but it is fenced and the park has some street lights. The park appears to be more of a manufactured home park than an RV park. - carliewired

We actually didn't stay there. We were told by the Asst. Mgr. that it was first come first serve, no reservations. When we arrived the manager said they were full up. The manager was very nice and sorry about what we were told. Due to it being a gated park, we had to drive through to be let out the other side. Please note this park is not set up for large RV's even though the Asst. Mgr said it was. It is mostly filled with live ins and 1/2 the park is mobile homes. It is in a really bad neighborhood. - judyk

This place is ok, sort of. It's one of the few places around so, any port in the storm. It's in a bad part of town but they do have a security gate. Mostly permanent residents with what seems to be a bunch of illegals right outside the gate milling around waiting for the bus. The office staff was nice to us. Our site was gravel but it was level. Showers were old but clean. Wi-Fi was good, fast and never dropped out. Camp here if you have business in the immediate area - -otherwise I'd suggest that you find another spot. - Jake67

It was a pleasant surprise to find a park where we had adequate room to back into a space without fear of hitting anything. All hookups were in good condition. The Wi-Fi worked great. Spaces are rock with a concrete patio with table. It would be a little dusty for long term stays. Shade is only on long term sites. The people here were very nice. - The Alberts

The only reason I gave this RV park the rating I did, is that it had a dog park with grass. That and it's location to Sacramento are its only redeeming factors.
We were parked in the gravel parking lot with no trees, cigarette butts and trash on the ground and just generally not a nice environment. The best I can say is that the site was level and the utilities worked okay. Cell and Verizon air card didn't work that well here which was surprising as this was right in the city. Stores and restaurants were close.
The staff was helpful and there was someone cleaning up the parking lot we were in, but there was just a lot of little trash on the ground. There is security over night which is good, as it feels isolated.
To find the park go to Ethan Rd and Gate 13. Good location for getting on the bike trails. I'm not sure we would stay here again except for the location, and we would certainly ask to be put into the paved lot (which is not level), but I'd prefer to deal with unlevel than be in a gravel parking lot. - Danni

About half of the sites here are on pavement, many with trees. The other half are on gravel, no grass or trees. Neither are level. There is a large dog park (really large) with grass. Laundry, restrooms and showers, and that's it. There are bike/walking trails just off the entry road, that travel into downtown, or out of town. - ta96silver

Location, location, location! Convenient location in Sacramento region. Hosts are very nice. All concrete and parking lot feeling. Park is walking distance to bike/walk trail along the American River. - motorcity

Do not even pull in to this campground. It's noisy at all hours of the night with motorcycles, loud cars, and fireworks. The homeless people wander through the park night and day digging in the dumpsters and stealing anything that's not locked. My daughter lost her bicycle. The Wi-Fi will not connect and only shows 1 bar when it shows anything. The only thing going for this park is friendly staff and the price. - possumtrotky

Manager and Maintenance Man were great -- so helpful, friendly. Long-term and short-term/overnight sites. Close to light rail. Shadier in long-term area. Have just planted trees at sites in front. Nice laundry room. We felt safe as they personally checked out every vehicle coming into park. I didn't remember the rates - inexpensive. We will stay here whenever in Sacramento. - deb.williams

This is a 55+ mobile home park that also rents RV sites. Very nice and quiet. Managers are very friendly though the site we were in was right up against the permanent mobile home next to us. If you like quiet, safe, reasonably priced ($175/wk), convenient location, this is the place to be. Downside, not much space for sitting out in front of RV. - DonnaandPete
Nov 2014 - $40.00
We came in for a short stay on a weekend with our 37 ft. 5th wheel and two small dogs. Knowing the park office was closed for the weekends, we called ahead and nice young lady took our info and explained the do-it-yourself check in system that was set up at the office. Upon arrival we noticed how close to town the park was and the level, paved aisle-ways of each row. Not a shred of grass in sight or a dog run, the pups would have to "ruff" it on the gravel rocks for a few days. The park itself was simple in its layout and live-in residents seemed friendly. Sights were level, easy alignment to back into, and RVs are parked on packed gravel with updated concrete patios. The traffic noise in the surrounding area was considerable but again, we were here on a weekend. This was a decent stop for a quick business trip. - RVLife4us

As others have noted, it is a big shame on the capital of California that there is not one decent park in the entire area. All the parks are a compromise either in location, facilities or cost. This park is in an economically depressed area of West Sacramento with the potential for danger. WE have heard gun shots at night, we see gang members walking by at night and do not feel safe. We were parked in site 2 upon arrival and had our rear bedroom (escape hatch) window smashed by a rock throwing teenager. If you come here, do not allow them to place you in site 1, 2, 3 or anywhere against the west fence facing Glide Ave. Although they are larger sites and most often used for the larger motor homes and 5th Wheels you are seriously at risk for vandalism by teenagers who walk by every day to and from the high school south of here. Bicycles have been stolen at night inside the park, all personal belongings left outside are at risk of theft, and any bays left unlocked are at risk of being rifled. Teenagers wander around the area late at night looking for mischief. The owners have covered themselves for any liability in extensive legal language on the rental agreements. They refuse to take any precautionary steps like providing security or putting in taller fences to protect client vehicles. Emergency vehicles with siren noises are common in this area all hours of the day and night. There is no place to walk any dog except on busy Glide Ave which can be quite dangerous at night with traffic passing at high rates of speed. This park is not worthy of a city the size of Sacramento! The sad thing is there isn't anything any better. - ALFA Maytwins

Used to be a KOA. Good size park. Clean. Some grass surrounding, but not in spaces. Quite a number of long term residents. Great dog park area - large with exercise equipment. Lots of room to run off leash. Lots of cabins. Nice walk along the water. - Ken Camp

This RV park is very convenient from I-80. The owners are wonderful and dedicated people. The property was clean and, although we do not travel with children, they had loads of activities for them, including an ice cream socials ... which even us "big kids" took advantage of! They also keep a small group of hens from which we were given fresh eggs which we used for a breakfast. The site was a bit tight but it really wasn't an issue for us. We'd stay here again anytime! - dandd

Good overnight campground. The pool was a little grungy for longer stays and the drought has really dried up the river behind. - MW91301
