Mark J RV Park was platted in 1958: yes, it's been here nearly 60 years! The park has many long-term residents, but also has many visitors that stay for a week or two. The older singlewide trailers are slowly being removed as they become vacant. 50A service with good water pressure and sewer at each site. Weekly individual site garbage collection. Park wi-fi... not so good, best in/near the clubhouse. No cable TV, but AT&T can provide telephone service and internet to each site. Park manager has been here for lots of years, lives on-site and offers excellent service. Other reviewers noted noise from busy streets, sirens and other urban distractions, but it is a generally quiet neighborhood evenings and weekends. Grocery & general shopping and restaurants within a short drive. Clean, quiet and well maintained and managed. Excellent value! - Retired-n-Roamin

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

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

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

I will start off with a positive comment. This park was well kept and clean. Beyond that, our stay was the absolute worst during our 2 month, 7,000 mile vacation. The manager, and his staff were the most unprofessional we encountered and had the customer service skills of a box of hair.
There was a situation where we were treated very rudely by a cleaning staff member and we defended ourselves. Big mistake. Manager has a chip on his shoulder and escalated the situation instead of diffusing it. He was threatening, and refused to believe his cleaning person acted completely inappropriately to us. He stated several times that he backs his employees 100% and believed the story his staff member gave to him regarding our situation with her. I respect how he backs his employees, but he was too dim to realize that sometimes the staff is in the wrong.
Additionally, the park is not big-rig friendly. Curves are tight and permanent residents are allowed to park multiple cars on the street. Unfortunately we had a minor finder bender with a permanent resident upon leaving. Several permanent residents, the manager and staff blocked us on the street, pointing, staring and laughing at us as we waited on the police.
The place is right next to a very busy I-80 and noisy. The management is not pet-friendly in spite of allowing pets. We exceeded the pet limit, and management made it clear later that it was not acceptable for us, yet they allowed long term residents to exceed the limit with no repercussions.
Due to all the permanent residents, and the customer service skills of management and staff, the place feels like a trailer park and not a RV park. All that pales in comparison to the atrocious people running this place. I am not surprised at all to see all the many negative reviews regarding the staff. I'm also not surprised to see their rude replies to those who experienced this awful RV Resort and shared their reviews online. - kuppajoe

First, I could never have parked my trailer without the very helpful assistance from the manager. We arrived after dark and the cramped quarters and lack of visibility made it very difficult for me to back my trailer safely. I'm sure the park was established when RV's weren't so large. Most of the spaces are occupied by long term residents. The two available spaces were very small. It is a nice looking park and work has been done and is continuing to improve the appearance of the park. - Watalotahui

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

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

For a "big parking lot", it was pretty nice! It actually had a few trees here and there, but it was pretty much what we expected...a parking lot, and that was ok. Good over-the-air TV, WiFi/cell reception and close to Sacramento at a good rate. That's all we needed. ;-) - MarieB

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

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

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

Stayed one night while in the Sacramento area. Easy to access, friendly staff. - TeamElk-Rib
Sep 2016 - $51.00
At that price had modest expectations.
Leaking, low water pressure.
Virtually unusable WIFI.
Sewer connection 16' from my hookup. (had to use their dump station)
To top it off-- at 8:51am a guy with a LEAFBLOWER comes sauntering down the lane behind my rig, blows not leaves but DIRT into my bedroom window....then down the lane in front to leave a beautiful coat of dirt over the front half of my truck.
Would not return and certainly never recommend. - koviashuvik

Convenient freeway access. But no freeway noise. Clean park. Staff was very helpful. My TV signal was weak. The splitter on the post was broken. - GerryBrown

This is a former KOA and a very old park. There has been little or no improvements made to the spots. They are gravel with no grass. The tree limbs are low and we hit the side and roof of our Motorhome. They are so close to the next spot that you can not put out an awning without hitting a tree limb. There are several permanent residents. They really need to update the water and power hook-ups too. It is a good short stay location. Lots of cabins and tent area with lots of things for kids to do. - 2travelers3
