6 Parks near Santa Nella, California
Oct 2016 - $32.00
Never met managers or owners. Came in around 5 pm and had a check in envelope for us with a space number. Very narrow for our 45' coach. Very, very dusty and too many long term, very old trailers there. We even say one sitting on top of a picnic bench! Place was kind of creepy for us. We won't stay there again. - Ricandtriciarv

Last stop on our 80 day adventure to Alaska. Very level sites, so did not have to disconnect - YAY. FHU's worked well, didn't use the WIFI. Day after Labor Day, so the park was pretty empty. Pool looked inviting but too tired to try it. Would stay here again, hopefully not during the summer - it does get hot in this area. - Nevada Nick

Overall the park is OK. WiFi Internet was unreliable. Had to enter a password every hour or so. Signal easily blocked by large rigs. Pool is nice. Pull through spots are nice, but not a lot of personal space on the sides to yourself. In the summer this place is hot, hot, hot. Children racing through park during the day in a golf cart playing "cops and robbers" was unsafe and annoying. Staff is friendly. - Johnny Blood

Have stayed here twice. Sites and overall upkeep is very good. However, both times the showers were filthy and had not been cleaned for some time. Just because they are older and could use some remodeling is no excuse for not mopping the shower floors and sterilizing the shower walls. Used showers at different times of day and they just had not been cleaned. - azrvers

Very clean and well maintained. Friendly service. The only downside is the truck noise from highway 152. We would stay there again. - Team 2Bs

Great place to stay on Highway 5
Office is always friendly, I often arrive late and leave early. Just leave cash under the hat and all is well.
BIG change since I last stayed there; they have repaved the roads and entry, much smoother and got rid of the horrible dip at the entry.
I alreay have a reservation for September. - Ian Cook

We camped for 2 nights. Very few camp sites have shade, else its very sunny. Summer may not be good time since the grass is all dried. The site have coin showers which are maintained good. Lot of place to hike and have water sports activity available in couple of miles. This site gives a stunning view of galaxy in night. - Abhi

Best time to visit is in the off-season. This is our second visit on our way back home. We stayed two nights and spent the day visiting the San Luis Wildlife Refuge (worth the trip if you like to see big birds in wetland habitats). We had the whole campground to ourselves with a view of the O'Neil Forebay and rolling bucolic hills. Camp host was very pleasant and told us that nights had been cold. Said they didn't have much wind this year which is unusual. The campground is very well paved as are the pads which come with concrete curbs for the rig and nice spot for your tow right next to it. Nice grassy areas and beautiful mid-size, bushy pines here and there. Our rig is 31 feet and the parking spaces could actually fit a larger rig (backed in) without sticking into the camp roadway. We had lunch at the Andersen's Pea Soup Restaurant (the one with the big windmill seen from I-5) in Santa Nella. Excellent food especially if you want "real" instead of "fast" food. There's a pretty big gift shop in the front and a full bar in room off the main dining room. We will definitely return to this campground especially during the off-season. - Sebastiantgoodbear

We camped there on memorial day weekend and didn't enjoy ourselves at all. None of the locks on the bathroom doors worked, which lead up to myself being walked in on by other people. Unfortunately, the wind was blowing so hard that the lake was shut down to all boat traffic. That seems to happen very frequently in this park. We ended up leaving a day early because it was a very noisy place. - aalgaards

I have stayed at this park both as a short stay and now as a long term/month to month.
I loved it as a short stay. The short stay area is towards the front of the park and has easy access to the play field, dog park, showers and restrooms. It is also where many of the pull through sites are located. I did not use the wifi or cable so cannot speak to them.
They are very good at getting folks to keep their dogs on leash which I greatly appreciate! They are also very accepting and welcoming to my 2 Rottweilers who are very trained and well mannered.
As a month to month, less happy so far. Even though I told them I needed a pull through and wanted a shaded spot when I returned in 3 months, I was assigned a back in, full sun spot at the very rear of the park, as far from the amenities I use as I can be in the most well lit area of the park, making it very difficult to sleep at night. I have been here for 2 weeks and promises to find a better spot for me have been for naught. - RottsNScotts

After about 5 nights in National Forest dry campsites, we were looking for a reasonably priced campground with showers and FHU to recharge ourselves before we headed into Yosemite. Found this spot on the Good Sam app, and made the call. Woman that answered was friendly, and when she told us the price, I asked her what the catch was! 2 adults and 3 kids, and there were no extra charges for the kids. Nice surprise there, as so many places gouge you for kids.
Our site was a pull thru, not huge, but shady, and had a table. We arrived after the pool closed (8pm), but the warm shower kinda made up for that. If you're a dog owner, the huge dog play area will be a big plus.
Others have complained about noise. I heard 1 train during the night. Try camping along the California coast sometime, then tell me about trains. Campground is probably 1/8 mile from 99, so some highway noise should be expected, but it was actually really quiet.
It's an older park, and if you're into paying $100 for an RV "resort" you'll be disappointed. If you're like us, and just need a quick stop with all the facilities, at a reasonable price, you might like this place. We did. - TheCurtster

This park was a delight. The clerk who checked us in was friendly and helpful. The WiFi was free and strong: I was never kicked off while checking e-mail. We could not receive a satellite signal for our TV, but the park provided free cable with 19 stations. We do not have a pet, but saw that the dog lot was a large, grassy fenced in area with even a shady place for owners to sit and visit while their pets played. The published prices showed that the laundry was a bargain. - WNC Traveler

This is 95% an ugly and dusty workers campground!
When we arrived a unfriendly host (owner?) was sitting in his office.
I knocked on the door and asked for a site for my motorhome.
Visibly annoyed, he referred me to me to pick one of the free spaces in the first row and come back tomorrow in his office to pay.
The grass what you see on the photo of the website is only in the front of the row, all campers stay on a (in small pieces broken) concrete pad with dusty gravel on both sides. Don't trust the pictures on their website!!!
The restrooms and showers were very dirty and smelling like an old sewer hose.
If I was not in the middle of nowhere I would have driven away! - Columbus

A quick stopover by the freeway, excellent location. Bathrooms were excellent, wi-fi was slow but usable. The driveways are wide and paved making access to our site very easy. The site is gravel and level but the wifi is slow. - JohnnyCash

Called ahead for a pull through for a 39' coach w/tow. Arrive to a very narrow gravel site on the end, where it required to unhook the tow in order to make a very tight turn to depart. Just staying overnight we were not wanting to unhook! The pull-through sites are very close with no amenities. This is our 6th time staying here because it is a convenient stop on I-5 for us. This well be our last! Not only are the pull-through site very inadequate, we had a VERY inconsiderate neighbor that proceeded to wash his very close rig and spray our 4 day old $400.00 wax job. There was no management to report this rules infraction to. The multiple times we've stayed here, the management has been very unfriendly and give you the feeling you're interrupting their life. Even trying to joke or make light conversation with them doesn't work. If you want a quite night ask for a site along the back fence as the road around the park is to several very large distribution centers (Amazon for one) and trucks run all night). Over the last several visits we have seen the park deteriorating with lack of upkeep and filled mostly long term stays. We will not return!!! - RJWebb

Large, open grassy area with level sites. (I didn't even use the jacks). Sites are full hook up, back in. No amenities. Surrounded by oleanders, which makes it private. However, the campground backs up to the Union Pacific main line. Heavy use of whistles. But the train noise seemed to quit about 9:00 pm. We were not awakened through the night. Either we were very tired (we were) or trains didn't run through the night. But we will definitely stay again for an en route campground. - User3119

This is about as basic as you can get and still call it an RV park. It's a grass lot with utility pedestals along the periphery. The host was a nice guy and let me park perpendicular to several sites so I wouldn't have to unhook. There was just one other rig there. The grounds appeared reasonably level. There are no bathrooms, showers, Wi-Fi, or any other amenities. The train track along one side was a bit noisy but not enough to keep me awake after a long day of driving. They love to water the grass, sprinklers were going the whole time we there, about 12 hours. - LM&TinView

Very basic, big grass field with hookups. Good power, good water pressure, no internet but our Verizon air card worked well. With TV antenna up, only got about 5 channels and they were sketchy. Only park in the surrounding area so I would stay again if in the area, you get what you pay for. - DonnaandPete
