27 Parks near Santa Rosa, California

Dry Camping only. Some bad, some good equals average. Good: well-spaced sites, a few pull throughs paved. Restrooms and showers kind of gross, costs a buck and a half. Good set up for families and kids. Quiet. Tranquil setting with lake and flat, two mile hike around. In town, for easy access but feels like in country. If you can tolerate dry camping and use on board facilities this is a good bet. - 1947red

This could be a convenient location for the sights and wineries of Sonoma County, close to downtown Santa Rosa. Site was level and utilities all in good order. That's the good.
A number of permanent residents, with multiple vehicles and trash bags/junk piled in the vehicles. Some are neat, others not. Pickup truck with trash bags overflowing and above roof line; the related motorhome had similar in front seats, filling front window. "Rules" are not enforced (site next to us had sewer hose dropped on ground and emptying into open drain- no end connection (park management and staff walked next to this several times and did nothing). The neighborhood is OK (who wants to live next to the fairgrounds), but no problems whatever walking to nearby park etc.
There is no WiFi available. Nothing fancy--level sites on gravel, laundry with two washers and dryers, decent room between sites, a few sites with a tree or two between. Sites just wide enough to put out side awning to site line. Nor a place to enjoy sitting outside. Some sites have picnic tables, some don't (and some of the long-term residents have two, perhaps why others have none). 50 amp sites are in the back row, all else are 30 amps (and I was told that a reservation for a 50 amp site is meaningless because the 50 amp sites are handled on a first-come, first-served basis). Thus like me, you can arrive with a confirmed 50 amp reservation and be told there are none available.
This campground is, as the name says, part of the county fairgrounds. The website does not say, and i discovered on check-in, that my reservation dates were cut short because of a Country Music Fest. It was explained the park serves the fairgrounds, and reservations mean nothing if something pops up at the fairgrounds or the fairgrounds decides for any reason that it wants the spaces. So if you have a confirmed/reconfirmed reservation, it may or may not be honored or cut short. I doubt we'd return. - SW Rick

As everyone else is saying this is a gravel lot but level. Big rigs needing 50 amp service are on back row and easy to access. No grassy areas so pets have to walk on gravel. Convenient for our wine trip as next to 101. Quiet park at night. - Scooterd16

This park is filled with perm residents. Only have a couple of daily spots. Felt like a poor man's monthly stay. Lots of talking and visiting by the locals. Finally cut off about 11 PM. Felt safe and people were friendly. Site was level. Streets were asphalt but not maintained last 20 years. Do not know if you can do better locally or not. We were overnight only. - Sir_Charles395

The staff was excellent! The park seemed brand new and was very well maintained. Sites were quite varied, I suspect many sites/sections are being upgraded as there were a mixture of gravel and concrete sites. Be careful of the site you get, one section with new concrete pads was far from level and we were forced to move. We ended up in a pull through site where rigs were door facing door, without much space between. Look before you park, but stay away from the fence (highway noise) at the far end, up the hill. Despite these issues, we were surprised by the fact that there were many empty sites in prime snowbird season. It is really a great location. - BMonk

We had planned to stay here for 2 weeks but ended up asking for our money back. We did stay 3 nights. This park has mostly long term tenants in the back half (and may be great for them), but for the average RV customer it does not feel right. As a result there was constant traffic in and out of the park, no speed control. We asked "Do you have full hookups" before we booked and they had NO TV at all! They said they had Wi-Fi but most of the time we were there the Wi-Fi was a 1 Mbps and could barely do email; sometimes we could not connect at all. The park is basically a gravel lot with connection posts and they pack you in next to each other. This is not a vacation spot.
I will say this, I gave them a 3 and not a 1 because the people in the office were always nice when we went in to complain. The sign says they have a water slide but the water slide has not been there in some time. - Nicole Cook

Older, nice RV park. Has lots of trees, a very nice staff and is located close to wine country. Would stay here again. - rval

If you don't expect much, then you will really like Mirabel Campground on the Russian River. There are no amenities, and a lot of the RVs there are very old and run down. But you are camping in and amongst giant redwoods and the price is hard to beat. The $15. above is based upon a weekly rate with one dog. Portions of the park can be kind of rowdy on the weekends, but we were in an area that was definitely more secluded. The electricity system is very old and we were told we could not use AC. That coupled with no cable and no Wi-Fi caused us to leave after 4 weeks. Prepare to need to sweep the roof of your rig at least once a week, as lots of dirt constantly reigns down from the huge trees. The park is very well located in that it is half way between Guerneville and 101 with SF being about 60 miles away. The manager was a rather crusty lady who certainly did not mince words or go out of her with with customer service. We would stay there again for a short time. - acephx

"Run, don't walk" away from this park! First, they only had 50 amp plug sites available so had to buy an 50/30 amp adapter to get power...They have no cable TV hook ups either and when I went to the office to ask about it I was told quite rudely by the Manager, "We have wifi, no cable". (the wifi was s-l-o-w) I complained that along with the adapter, the pet fee and lack of cable that I would rather have stayed somewhere else the manager said she thought that would be a good idea! If "older style" means toilets that come with instructions to get them to flush without clogging and showers that are missing lots of tile and have water saver heads with very little pressure (that the toilets more than compensate for in multiple flushes) then yes -it is older style. What little asphalt is left on the roads has more potholes than smooth spots and the full time residents do little to make the park appealing. Overall, the worst park we've ever stayed in. - rocket11

Stay away from this one. Staying here was a Big mistake! My son, daughter-in-law, and spouse said it would make a good horror movie. The bathroom was covered in black widows and spider webs. There was no hot water available if you dared take a shower. Water was rusty and smelled something fierce. The manager was laying in the front seat of his maybe 1975 Class C with cardboard covering broken windows. The fence surrounding the park was a falling down paint bare picket like you might find in an old cemetery in a horror movie. If we had not paid in advance and arrived at 10:00 pm we would never had stayed. Traffic noise was bad too!!! Stay anywhere but Windsorland RV !!!! - DigMyPast

All in all a nice stay. Very reasonable price. They WON'T be closing for at least another year or two. Clean park: has been spruced up from 2 years ago. Town of Windsor square is across the street (easy walk) and has restaurants, shops, concerts and movies in the square on Tuesday and Thursday nights. Also has a farmers market on Thursdays. Drawbacks are: no hot water in restrooms (we used our own), no cable TV, (but DOES have WiFi), and located next to Hwy 101. Nice people and quiet at night. Would definitely stay here again. - frenchman

This park is also known as River Bend. One is for tents and another is for RV's according to the owner. Water in the showers was warm and owner said she would tell her husband about it. FYI, no ATT service in the RV area. If you're Xfinity customer there was great free wifi available. Sites abut the highway so some road noise. In short nice park, but expected more for the price point charged. - hmthomas1

River access was nice, but WAY too much money for what you get! Also seemed to be more of a "full time" campground than a vacation spot. Has a lot of folks living here and it was very noisy. It's right on a busy road, so lots of traffic noise too. Also very crowded. - frenchman

Crowded, noisy. Way over priced for what you get. Friendly hosts, but the crowd seemed like a bunch of squatters looking for a free meal. Did like the river being close, but had a hard time enjoying it. - mountainsurfer

The campground is fairly clean and maintained. There are few trees in the park. The roads are paved and sites are gravel. Maneuvering within the park is quite tight. There are many long term RV's in the front half of the park that are generally in good condition, but some are not. And then there's the back half; permanent dilapidated RV's that look like "Felony Acres". There are stray cats everywhere. The spaces are small. We were in a double space and our 38' Class A w/ two slides filled it. Some of the utilities can have a long run due to placement in the site. The campsite has 30/50 electric and a picnic table, but no shade. It is fairly level but narrow. Water has good quality and about 60 psi. Basic cable is free. Tengo internet is free, but rarely works; T-Mobile hotspot worked fine. The laundry has basic machines that need updating. Did not use; went to a laundromat adjacent to the park. Did not use or check the showers and restrooms. No pool. The staff are some nice ladies, but a bit perplexed about accommodating our 38' Class A. There were no social activities. The park is located in the city, so everything is close. It is remarkably quiet given that it is in a city. A pleasant enough park for a place to stay, but the sardine factor is too high for our preference. And at $43/night it's quite overpriced for what they offer. We'll try somewhere else next time. - Wiyndog

This park is right in the middle of Rohnerville. Convenient if you have business here or want a place close to the new casino. Lot of full timers here with all types of RVs: new and old (but mostly new from what I could see), a lot of this park goes back where I could not see. I imagine a lot of people who are living here have jobs in the area. The sites are crammed together with narrow roads. I would not want to try getting in with a very large rig. The route to my RV spot was confusing as the map directed me in, but I was facing the wrong way for utility hook-up. I had to go back out of the park and come in facing the other direction. Once I was in the spot correctly, the utilities were easy to access, but the spot was not quite level. I thought it would be a nicer place to stay than the fairgrounds in Santa Rosa where I had just come from (as that place has nothing but large gravel over the whole park' not good for dog walking.) But next time, I will just stay in Santa Rosa: will not come back to this park. It should be fine if you need to stay in Rohnert Park for any reason, but I would not recommend it for a stop off point in your travels. - nanzhere

The park is fairly clean, though the full-time camper section is a bit run-down looking. The manager was very nice and friendly, but the rest of the staff didn't go out of their way to assist. Our spot was under some nice trees that provided shade on hot days, but it was also immediately next to a busy road (River Road). The traffic was fairly loud throughout the day and quieted at night. Many of the RV spots were in a large parking lot with no trees, and very close together. The tent camping spots were all in dirt and didn't look appealing at all. There is access to the river, though it was down some steep dirt paths. This could be a lovely property, but needs some attention. Try to get an "R" site - these back to the river. - sail2blue

This is the only Good Sam park in the Russian River Valley and they offer Good Sam Discounts (10% off!) The restrooms were clean and there is access to a fantastic private beach. River Bend recently bought Hilton Family Campground, so the resort is better than ever. With an old fashioned arcade, General Store, cabins, horseshoe pits, basketball court, and an outdoor theater that plays kids movies at night. Also, on Saturdays in the summer there is free face painting and karaoke! The staff was very friendly and helpful. - User737

I would have rated this park a little lower If not for having one of the nicest sites, R15 backing up to the river.
There are mostly long term campers there while I was there May 24th.
They were not that busy but told me all the had for my 35ft MH was full service even though I said a 30 amp without sewer would work ( to keep cost down ? )
I thought the grout in the tile stalls were green, but at a closer look I noticed it was mold.
I would not stay here again. - twowoofs

I understand now why you had to reserve online and why it was the only RV park with spaces available.
This is by far the worst place I have stayed in my last 2 full months of touring the Western US. I haven't stayed in a park more than 2 days so that should give you an idea as to how many parks I have been to. That is a lot of parks to be picked as THE WORST EVER. We reserved a spot for two nights that ended up being $92.00 for two nights with pets.
1. We put in our reservations we'd arrive at 7 PM. There was no one in the office or anything left out for us. We were up there so long looking for some sort of sign that two 10-yr-olds came to ask if I needed help. I just picked a random spot. When you make a reservation you can pick premium pull-through or standard back-in. There is no way to tell what space costs more because they all look the same: TERRIBLE.
2. Their website is an absolute misrepresentation of everything they are and have to offer. Covered dining is no more than old tables under a metal awning. It is ALL DIRT. ALL OF IT. There is a bit of a paved road if you want to call it that and a patch of dead grass for dogs. There are small kids raking the insane build-up of leafs for fun in the "dining area." And business center?! PLEASE POINT THIS OUT TO ME because I am 100% positive it does NOT exist.
3. We still haven't seen the camp host- we shouldn't have bothered paying $2/pet when they wouldn't even know.
This is obviously a place for people who want to go wine tasting and golfing and come back drunk so they don't even realize how terrible it is.
I will absolutely be asking for a refund for my second day.
Do yourself a favor and spring for a cute room at a cottage down the street. - WanderPig34

Never saw the hosts. Came thru on NASCAR weekend so the entire area was booked solid, but this one was great. EXCEPT: Do NOT come here from SF via GPS!!! It may take you through Calistoga Road! There were SEVERAL 11-12% grades up and down. At the end, facing back, the sign said trucks over 25' not recommended. (We were in 37' w mini van toad!) Worse than the trip THROUGH San Francisco and OVER the GG BRIDGE during midday.
But back to the park. Nice basic fairgrounds park. Had 50 amp, water, no sewer. Someone said one was nearby, didn't need it. Gas close by if needed, quiet setting, big older trees. Fairly close, but not terrible. The trip back to the highway was MUCH less harrowing experience. - 7 on the road

Rate is a mix of Passport America Discount and extra charge for long weekend nights.
We stayed a few days on our way home and didn't have the long weekend in mind. Big mistake. The campground was filled up to the very last spot. It was a zoo. Since the park is a gravel field with sites close together in parking lot layout there is no privacy left when the park is full.
Quite some noise from partying in the neighborhood (not the parks fault). We'll be back but avoid any weekends not to mention long weekends. - TheSchweitzers

We stayed here midweek and we had the park basically to ourselves, minus the three apparent full timers. For $43 I would expect there to be a dump on site. Be aware...there is NO sewage dump station. Very clean, used showers because there is no dump and those were clean with hot water. It is within walking distance from the town. Very quiet at night despite the proximity to Neely Rd. Was here three days before we saw the park managers, good thing we didn't need anything. - pamandtina

This park is in a beautiful natural setting along the Russian River. It allows tents, and so was a good fit for us, traveling in a teardrop. However the small staff is just overwhelmed. Bathrooms are similar to what you would find in a campground, not RV park, w/cement floors and basic facilities. Bring your own toilet paper. The RV sites have 30 amp plus water, no sewer that I saw. They are arranged around two circular glades surrounded by trees, many of them lovely redwoods. Sites 1 thru 5 look really nice and are shady. All except 1a are back-in. The first night we stayed happened to be the beginning of BeerFest weekend, and every campsite was thronged with crowds of joyfully inebriated young men, who celebrated 'til the wee hours. However, people were courteous enough. After the weekend, the park emptied out, and during most of the week we were nearly alone in the spectacular setting. Campers returned the following weekend but it was much quieter. We were told that the park may be changing hands. We will be returning as it is a perfect fit for us with a daughter living within walking distance. It would be great if someone could take this diamond in the rough and shine it up! Note: although the park borders the Russian River, those areas appear to be tent campsites, and actual access to the riverbank is a little tricky. Much easier and probably safer to walk across the pedestrian bridge and go to Johnson Beach on the other side of the river, where there is a lovely and child friendly area for swimming or kayaking. - Grants Girl

It is a tight squeeze for a big rig. Just a grassy area and some large trees. No satellite because of the trees. Needs to be updated. Quiet and close to town. Very dangerous getting out because of the blind curve. - Badge
