We stayed here as Thousand Trails members. I have to admit, at first I thought this place was a bit sketchy. The park is older and in some ways run down. Many perfectly good spots are tents only and I suspect it's due to the fact the power isn't working at those sites. Some sites are pretty ugly, dug out of the hillside and rather unlevel. But there are many gems tucked away in the trees. Our spot was level, secluded and we had a great view of a grassy hillside that deer visited every evening. Good shade too in a lot of spots. The lake is beautiful and full of fish. The lodge is very nice with an adult room with free pool tables (you have to pay to play in the rest of the lodge) and a huge lending library. We ended up really loving the resort and if the new pavement on the road in and our very new power pole are any indication, they are making improvements. We'd certainly stay again. - DanJenNevada

If you enjoying actual camping, rather than RV camping, this is a beautiful place. If you don't need an internet or cell signal, or are willing to give up sewer for those, this is a beautiful place.
But since this is a review on a website for RVers, I would not recommend it. My first day here was frustrating beyond belief.
The only sewer available is in X section (note that that section is not available to the public). There supposedly are a few sewer sites in the other sections, but by "a few", I mean "2 or 3", and good luck. Furthermore, there isn't even 1 dump station for every section, and these sections are really spread out.
Here's the lowdown on cell and internet, because I got mislead by other reviews: If you need internet or cell phone service for work, just don't come here, period. The ONLY sections where there is a usable signal (ie, more than 2 bars of 3G) are the top of D section and parts of I section.
Here's the problem with that: About HALF of D section has no electricity. While I was pulling into a spot there, an annual 2 spaces away was nice enough to come tell me before I had leveled, etc., that the space I'd chosen actually had no power, in spite of the lack of a sign; and that, furthermore, unless I had a power booster, I was probably better off not staying in that whole section because the power supply was so bad. (He didn't volunteer this to get rid of me - he told me when I asked him.) H section was closed so we could not check for sewer or data signal there.
If you only need a cell phone occasionally, and are able to deal with dial-up speeds from your Jetpack, and don't need sewer, you might just really like this place. But if you want a sewer site (and also don't care about your Verizon signal) and don't want to pay an extra 5 bucks a night for it, you're still rolling the dice, because they also loaded up the X section with 50 amps sites. (11 of the 40 sites there are 50 amp.)
I wish someone had told me all this before I planned my spring around this campground! - Karen On The Road

This is a Thousand Trails facility. We stayed as a guest. It's a very large campground with 6-7 different loops you can choose from. If you want cell phone service you need to stay in on of the loops higher on a hill that is closer to the entrance. The other loops are much lower and somewhat hidden in a small valley. Campground is rustic and wild looking with somewhat harder sites to pull into and very curvy access roads. Lots and lots of trees. We saw deer roaming through the campground every day. We stayed in November, so it was quite cool during the day and very cold at night (in the 30s). Water & electricity on most sites, but only a few sites with sewer. They do have a dual dump station as you exit. Very remote site, with a few very small 2-3 building towns nearby. - San Diego Traveler

An OVERPRICED RV park with sites for larger rigs in back of the mobile home park. Poor maintenance, showers/restrooms a long walk, mediocre river access, no cable or wifi, poor access to the sites if other RV's were there. We were there four nights and were the only ones in the back section. Speaks volumes. Poor signage for the park. Clean restrooms but needed a separate key for men and women. Park needs a lot of work before they can expect to have much business. - bobnrobin

This is a smaller, cozy park (RV's over 33 feet long are placed in the adjacent Golden Feather Mobile Home Park) with great access to outdoor activities. The Feather River is right next door for access to excellent fishing. Lake Oroville is just a short drive for those looking to go boating. Oh, don't forget the Oroville Dam. It's the tallest dam in the U.S.! The sites are all full hook-up, very level, have clean gravel and new 50-amp power pedestals with basic cable TV. The owners are putting a lot of attention and money into the park and it really shows. The bathrooms are brand new with beautiful tile floors, granite counter tops, and a large shower. And the on-site convenience store (the Golden Feather Marketplace) is being completely remodeled (it's schedule to re-open in April, 2011). It will offer beverages, snacks, bait & tackle, household & toiletry items, ice, propane and much more. Everyone we met and talked to while we stayed here, was friendly and helpful. Especially the on-site managers. (The office is located in the adjacent mobile home park in space #201.) We stayed for just a few nights, but the also offer weekly and monthly rates if you want more time to explore. - bcbounders

Zero stars, unprofessional owner and no frills here folks!! Keep on rolling past this high priced RV Park because if you stay here you will be nickeled and dimed to death. Meaning, this park likes to create additional fees for things like better internet connection and your visitors are charged $5 per car. Visitors who stay longer than a few min that is. Lots are mostly dirt and if you are lucky enough to get grass or weeds they will sometimes mow it leaving your patio covered in dead grass since no clean up of the cut grass occurs. When it rains your dirt lot is now a mud lot. Poor drainage throughout makes for a muddy mess everywhere inside/outside. If you have grass on your lot its temporary because once it gets hotter their sprinkler system does not water all grass. In fact none of our sprinklers worked so in the dry months we had a lot with dead gras and loose dirt flying around due to heavy winds at times. I cannot say enough about the gazillions of mosquitoes that are constantly around. Usually after 4 PM if you intend to be outside for any reason you will see them and feel their bites all over so intense you can only seek shelter. No kidding! Wake up to the nearby shooting range EVERYDAY! So no alarm needed! My advise is to keep rolling past this RV Park its overpriced and not worth the money, in our opinion. - Cheri s

This is a nice wooded park right on the Feather River. Beware of those trees, though. We were in site 39, which was a pull through with a cement pad to park on. Unfortunately, we weren't warned about the overhanging branch on the utilities side of the pad, so when we pulled in, it scraped the top edge of the fifth wheel, tearing the covering and denting the structure. Stay to the right of the pad if you have a tall rig. Otherwise, the folks that run the park were very nice, as was the park. There are a lot of seasonal worker here working on the Oroville Dam spillway, but all sites were tidy. Wifi was good at this site. Picnic tables need repair or replacement. - Gannonrv

This is our second stay here and we love being right on the river. Yes it is close to the highway but I didn't hear the traffic. Yes there is a cement company next door but again it did not cause a problem for us. We have only stayed here for one night at a time so I can't review it for long term. They have a lot of outdoor activities and cute cabins for rent. Nearest store is just up the highway. Next to a paintball company. - Peggy G

Stayed three nights to visit relatives. Very nice, clean resort with everything needed in a rv resort. Pull through site, not long enough for our 40 ft. MH and towed jeep. Landscaped very nice, large grass area next to site with a nice table. Pet areas were available. Restrooms were new and spotless. Laundry was also spotless. A store and fuel station along with the office was next to a nice pool. - retirednrving

Navigation into the park is very easy. Navigation through the park is very easy Lanes are wide & paved. They offer a choice of site lengths. Sites are wide concrete pads with a picnic table. Plenty of room to put out your slides. Nice large grass area between each site. 2 trees on each side of your rig - they are small now but in time will offer good shade. There is a bit of road noise on the front of the park; you may wish to be in one of the sites further back Utilities w/50 amp placed well & worked well. Good cable TV and easy satellite access. Our AT&T cell phone service works well as does our Verizon Hot Spot. Park WIFI is also good. There is a nice fenced, off leash Dog park with a very thick covering of wood chips is very clean. Onsite cafe/restaurant at the casino - RV park gives you coupons. Onsite laundry is very nice. We had no problems with bugs.Pool is very nice and heated. We will definitely come back. - JanneC

This is a new park so the trees are not mature enough to provide shade. (It can get hot in Oroville during the summer.) The sites are wide and level concrete slabs. The site length varies depending on the specific location. There is lush green turf between sites with underground irrigation - no wet picnic tables or water overspray on vehicles. The pet area is fenced and covered with wood chips. The restrooms are spotlessly clean. The check-in staff is very helpful and friendly. It is walking distance to the casino, but a shuttle is available. If you are coming from the west, you will see a big sign for the RV park, but don't turn there because you will end up at a different park. Wait until you see the casino parking lot, then turn there and head towards the gas station and store. - Beau's Mom

Planned overnight stop here as this KOA has a pool. Over 105 degrees that day. No shade yet as this is a very new park. There was just enough space for my 30 ft 5th wheel. Parked the TV in the spacious road in front of our space. Did not go to the casino. - Central Cal 5er

Concrete site, with a picnic table on grass. Minor leveling, no shade. WiFi and 25-channel cable TV worked great. Two sewer connections which was convenient. Office staff was friendly and informative. Nice dog park. Swimming pool and hot tub. Casino just a 5-minute walk. - zigzag

A former KOA that is now an RV park for residents/long term. We took the last available site for a night. The office is only open Monday through Friday, 9 to 5. No drop box for payments. Had to shove a check for $36 through the door jamb. The site (25) was big enough for our truck and trailer (55 feet). Lots of shade. It was somewhat a level, gravel site. Excellent water pressure. The electrical box only has 30/20 amp. It had breakers for 50 amp, but no plug. The cover was removed and was laying on the ground. The sewer hookup was just slightly higher than our hose support and also had no cover. Just a brick over the hole. I checked out the men's room and showers. They looked clean and usable if needed. We used the decent sized pool. I talked to a resident using it before we got in. She said it was cleaned on Friday. Our site had some grass and a picnic table. It was too hot out to use. There was some wood planks left behind along with a drinking hose, sewer elbow. I gave it a 5 because the site we were suppose it use was taken. And what would of happened if we couldn't get any site after driving 90 miles? Closed office on the weekends too. Also it's a bit hard to find if using your GPS. Mine took me to a driveway before the actual entrance that is shared with a mobile home park. - lodiguy

Would never stay there again. Office staff was rude. Golf course was not maintained could not even play golf. Some kid (about 18) on a lawnmower woke me up every morning, not mowing just racing around making noise starting at 6AM till quitting time. Bathroom was Gross. - fulltimer52

We had made our Reservation 5 months ahead of time & when we got there found out that site had been double booked, or booked in error some other way. We had to settle for a site that was 24' long for our 30' rig instead of the 40' one we had Thought we had reserved! If you have a boat or other such to enjoy the lake. Most of the Time, Bidwell is okay. Otherwise I wouldn't recommend it! There are virtually No Views of the lake because of the heavy fringe of trees between the sites & the shore. - Momads

The biggest downside to the Bidwell Canyon campground is that the reservations are not site specific. They are first come first served. For larger rigs that limits the number of spaces significantly when travelling in a group. Upon calling, we informed the park we needed sites together for our group. They indicated they would mark our reservations as such and to just park a car on the site we wanted to save. On this particular stay, instead of quieting down noisy campers and speeding cars, the park police chose to make us move our car from the saved spot. Then, they gave away the spot closest to us to another camper. For the price being charged, system needs to be changed to allow site specific reservations.
In addition, fire ring is way to close to the allowed trailer area. Not enough room to set chairs around the fire ring. Not walking distance to the water due to drought. No AT&T reception. No TV reception. - Maltaman

We stayed at Lime Saddle State Park. It was okay at best for the money. We have stayed here in the past, but only because there is little else to choose from and in the past it was more affordable. The State of California has doubled the rates at all of their campgrounds because of the budget crisis and it is too bad that they have chosen to get it out of people who enjoy the State Park facilities. The RV sites are $40 and the tent sites are $20 which is very high for what you get. Pay showers as well. We will try to find another place to stay next time. - Eagle4

Lots of shade under the mature trees here tucked in the back of the fairgrounds. Being a fairgrounds and not an RV resort there are no 'facilities' (showers/restrooms/laundry) as part of the RV area, and the long-term residents seemed to not pick up after their dogs but rather just let them run loose in the adjacent ball field. But otherwise clean, & nice and quiet. - AussieMom

This is not a destination park, but it works quite well for a short stay in the area. As noted, it is a fairground, so it will not be available all of the time for folks passing through, so it is best to call. You check in at the fairground office across from the pool. I put that the campground has 39 sites, but their numbering system indicates there may be more that I am not counting. When we stayed there were only about 10 other campers, so there was lots of space. When it is almost empty like this, you can make some sites into pull-through sites. Also when occupied like this, there is lots of space. If the campground were full, it would be very crowded with close spaces. It is in a very quiet area and felt very secure. There are some big lights around, but they did not come on, so it was nice a dark at night, which we like. It is very convenient to shopping, such as there is in Gridley. It is also very convenient to the Gray Lodge Wildlife area, which is the reason we visited the area. Our Verizon cell phone and data worked well. If visiting the area, we would certainly stay here again. For the price it cannot be beat. - TheJim

We have been to this park before , we stay for a few months at a time because of my work. The park is well kept, with beautiful trees and green grass. Dogs are allowed and they do have a run which my dog loves. I would have to say its reasonably safe, and mostly quiet at night with no real traffic noise like at other parks. There are trains in the distance but just a few times a week not a bother. The staff is really nice, knowledgeable and helpful, and if they can accommodate a request, they will. They do have monthly rates as well as weekly and daily. Pull thru's are long enough for a 40 ft. fifth wheel and truck. Everything is full service,water,50 amp and sewer. - Ralf

Landscaping maintained, pool and spa were dirty, bathroom and showers were dirty, laundry room - one dryer had gum stuck to it that was not cleaned. Staff were somewhat helpful. Park located on Hwy 99 where there was a shopping center with a Safeway, fast food, and Black Bear Restaurant with excellent large portions of food. Could also walk up one block to the Casa Lupe Mexican Restaurant with excellent food. Starbucks is another block up. - BusNuts

There are a lot of permanent residents here and a few run down rv's but it was fine for an overnight stay. - Murdoch
