16 Parks near Ukiah, California

Made a last minute reservation as I was not able to make it to the park I was trying to get to. I was so glad to find this diamond in the rough. The trees do need to be trimmed in this park, as there are a lot that are low hanging. There were literally only 2 other campers in the park with me. No one was at the entrance when we went in - self check-in. We drove around a little looking at sites. We were turning around to get a spot and found the real diamond site. There is only 1 electric/water site. It doesn't show on the Reserve America site on the map. It only shows on the list section. It shows as length 35 ft, but this site has nothing behind it for 30 ft. I was able to put my 35 ft travel trailer in with my crew-cab connected and still had 30 ft behind me. The lake is a decent size. It was a little low when we were there, but that gave a nice size beach. There are a lot of squirrels and we saw wild turkeys and deer walking around in the park. To get to this park, it is at the north end of Lake Mendocino. There is a road that cuts off under a bridge and then you follow it back for a mile or so along a river (this is off the 20 highway). There was supposed to be a dump station at this park, but I did not see one and none shows up on the Reserve America website map. There is a decent size park for the kids and a lot of grass. The sites are mostly in the woods with grassy meadows in between loops. Our site had a fire ring and a table. - nunyadamn

Useful only as a stopping place. Very tight sites. No ambiance. Services worked well though. Would avoid in the future. - Willie Wall

Wandered into this place for an overnighter. Place was run down. The new manager was nice but apologized for the deficiencies and mentioned the previous manager bailed for no reason. No WiFi, water pipe broken at our site, pool closed, bathroom doors open for proper ventalition. Some seedy looking permanants around but kept to themselves. Converted asphalt parking lot but was right next to a nice shady park. The place has good posibilities for improvement. - zzzya

Found their local number on internet, called, got answering machine, left message we need a spot in 2 days, please call back and confirm. Next day, hadn't heard from them, called twice telling them we were on our way. Heard nothing. Got to the place, office was closed (1:00 pm on Sunday, 10/3/10), no one at the assist mgr trailer, no forms to fill out to register on the outside desk. There may have been several open spaces, but cars or pickups were parked in them. General impression was of run-down facilities, uncaring management, somewhat hostile/indifferent permanent residents. We ended up staying elsewhere in Ukiah, and chatted with two other people about Manor Oaks; they confirmed our poor impression of the place. - NickWA

This park is right next to the fairgrounds. Sites are grass. There was nothing going on at the fair so it was very quiet, even though you could see 101 there was no noise from it. Its right next to a RR track but I don't think its used. Very secure fenced all the way around. Good place for a stop over or a base for checking out Ukiah. Host was nice and gave a the spot we wanted so I could walk my dog and my potbelly pig. - onemohawk

Great stop for a couple of days. Utilities worked fine. Site long enough so you don't have to disconnect. Host very helpful. Easy on and off Hwy 101. Dog Friendly. - silverado

The sign for the place isn't the best; it was past where you turn so watch carefully. Easy on/off the freeway, lots of places to eat close by. Nothing going on at the fairgrounds so nice and quiet when we were there. We would stay here again. - Lynn-Donny

The road is very narrow getting to and from the RV Park. The owners recommend entering Blue Lake Road from the West. If the gate is locked, beep your horn and they will open it for you. Sites were gravel and dirt, only 30 amp with water and sewer. Picnic table, a few have fire rings, some with shade. Showers were old but functional. Fishing was great and the lake is 40' deep in most places. They have a boat launch and also rent boats, speed limit is 5mph. They have three docks that you can fish from. You hear the traffic on Hwy-20. Wi-Fi was poor for us but our friends received it fine. No cable or antenna TV reception. Owners were very nice and helpful. - zigzag

Beautiful and secluded. Narrows is a proper name. They have a one way road that the county claims is 2 way. We were terrified coming in and leaving, prayed no one was coming the other direction. Once in the park the lake was beautiful and stocked with fish. The only downfall was that the main highway and you heard traffic constantly. - LadyBird

Owners were great to work with. Fun area for kids to fish, rent boats etc. The only problem was that the restrooms/showers get a lot of sand from the beach area next to the office, and the restrooms become muddy from the use. There is a lot of clutter around the office from old broken down equipment, so they could clean it up some. Rates are reasonable for camping and the rentals. - Kingtriton04

The lady in the office greeted all of us with a big smile. She went out to our site and directed my husband into the spot. We did not have a fire pit with us do she went and found one for us to use. Very private and quiet. The lake was beautiful. They had just put 800 lbs of trout in it before we arrived. Can not wait to go back. - Sili

Full hookup site, with 3-channels of cable TV and WiFi (free but slow). Picnic table, no fire pit. The Office has basic food and plenty of fishing bait and tackle. Dirt and gravel sites, semi-level. Showers cost 25-cents for 3-minutes. Some road noise from Hwy-20 but not too bad. Nice fishing dock and club house. Helpful and friendly staff. - zigzag

Small RV Park, dirt and gravel, some leveling required. No discounts offered, we had one of the four, full hookup sites, which are back-ins. You'll need about 25' of electric cord and water hose to reach the box as "some, not all" of the sites have it located on passenger side, and you have to go under your RV to connect. Wi-Fi worked fine, cable TV has four channels. Restrooms were clean, showers have a quarter machine slot. A nice covered fishing dock, roped swimming area, multi-purpose building, and small boat launch. Some highway noise at night, but not bad. Staff was friendly and informative. - zigzag

It’s great for what it is – very rustic, off the beaten path. We used it as an overnight stop on our way from Southern California to the coastal redwoods. No traffic noise at all – it’s about a mile off Highway 20. The back-in sites next to the creek were quite large. The sites were level with a dirt surface – probably gets muddy in wet weather, but we had no problem. The management was very accommodating and pleasant. - Prof Dan

Definitely a laid back, rustic campground. It felt like we were in someone's back yard. Sites are close together. Very shaded. Some low hanging trees. Wire fencing between sites which makes the sites feel smaller. We had no one on either side of us. We would have felt much more comfortable if there was no fence. Felt closed in with the wire fencing. Grill had garbage in it. Hook ups were only W&E with dump station. We had to wait over an hour to have the electric turned on. Bathrooms are old but clean, Pets are allowed, but not welcome. $2./day per pet charge. Dog waste in our site. No Verizon or Sprint Internet. No Verizon or AT&T signal. Nice swimming pond, basketball court, and communal large campfire but full of garbage. Would not come back. - Fur Mom

This campground located 1 1/2 miles from highway 20 is a rough hewn gem. We arrived late, in the dark, and the owner greeted us and then took us to our camp-site. She stayed while we hooked up and then said, "You seem tired, if you are not leaving early, you can pay in the morning." Pretty amazing, and yes we were tired so we paid in the morning. The stars put on such a display without any ambient light to compete with for their brilliance. The silence was quite unbelievable, simply no sounds except the forest and its animals. The setting for this park is beautiful, forest and glade. There are wild turkeys here that will bid you adieu. Our WiFi worked fine so we didn't seek out additional services, which is why I don't know what are available. Also I am not exactly sure about the number of camp-sites. Kids would absolutely love this place, with its wild and natural activities. We will check in here again as we travel up and down Highways 101 and 20. - rvgypsy1

Self check-in was OK. No one here at 2:15pm on Tuesday. Grounds were less than average. Back-in spots were not clearly defined. Sewer in awkward place and required, for our trailer, more than 20' of sewer hose. Road is steep but manageable. Overall: Just an average park with a touch of disarray. - nookncranny

This was our 2nd visit here. Our 1st was in Dec of 2013...in the snow! We were there pretty much all by ourselves, and just overnight. This time, however, was much different! What a difference, the place as full this time (and no snow on the ground). Sure made a difference. Sites are very tight. It was cute that the wild turkeys came out to say hello tho! ;-) The only reason to stay here is really to take the Skunk Train, which was fun. The only other Campground is at the KOA, which is over twice the rate (and checking it out...not worth the double rate). Poor WiFi/cell because you are in a hole, but good TV reception. - MarieB

Self Check-In worked without any issues. The offices closes at 4pm, which is a little early in my mind.
The Site was shady and quite, although it looks like the RV Park is next to the US-101.
Wi-Fi was available near the office which was a little up the hill. The connection was ok.
The Pool was small but nice, we didn't use the bathrooms or showers.
Overall a nice campground for staying the night. - Karsten

Spaces are very tight. There were no open places to throw frisbees or play catch. I have no idea why it was necessary to have workers with leaf blowers churning up dust and tree needles in a forest!!! They were loud and choked up the air. It made no sense. It was difficult to manuever our 31' rig. Because we had a handicap spot, we had electricity. The rest of the sites have nothing. There were plenty of trash bins which was nice. But we won't return--it was cheek to jowl. - toccata

This park is absolutely beautiful. Deep in the redwoods and in the midst of some of the best wine country in the world. - KathyL

This is a charming trailer park with a few sites set aside for transients. The best spot, across the street and directly on the water, was already occupied so we got the next best, at the end of the front row, facing the lake. The remaining sites are further back, nestled among full-time trailers and 5th wheels. The owner is a nice guy. Our 25' Class C and towed fit fine but anything larger would be a tight fit. The space was level and covered with patchy grass/dirt and a mature tree. A picnic table was on site. The utility fixtures were serviceable but covered with cobwebs, a personal "ick" factor for me. The bathrooms and showers were too dimly lit to fully assess their condition. We chose to use the facilities in our rig. The laundry room and machines were serviceable. The permanent residents were friendly, unique characters who keep their dogs on-leash, picked up after them and avoided loud, noisy activities. The local Sheriff's office seemed acquainted with some of the residents. Their regular visits to the park, at least, kept troublemakers away. Our Passport America rate was $22/night including tax. - LM&TinView

As noted, this is a small park that cannot accommodate big rigs. When I pulled in for a one night stopover the personable manager, immediately flagged me down and told me my 27 foot (!) class A towing was too big for their loop and that I had to back out, which meant that, because of the angle, I had to unhook my tow. After some friendly discussion, we decided I might be able to make it through the loop after all, which we were then able to accomplish without much difficulty and without unhooking. All ended happily. I was assigned the only available spot, which happened to be the park's one true lakefront space, across the road from the park proper. The space has a beautiful view of the lake with a private pier and boat launch ramp within 20 feet, but only 20 amp electric and no sewer. Although I was easily able to connect with satellite TV at my lakefront spot, I think reception in the main park may be difficult because of the trees. I would return. - Pawticket

This is a very small park with mostly full-time residents. However, they are the friendliest people we've met. The owner is excellent and helps you navigate, or whatever you need. He cares enough to even have installed satellite hookups for both Dish and Direct - over and above in my opinion. Our site had a beautiful view of Clear lake and the mountains. Within 30 minutes of setting up, 5 residents had already come by to welcome us. If you are in the area (it's gorgeous), give yourself a treat and try to stay here. We stayed a month and considered longer. - bigbob7777

OK for an overnight. The pull thru sites are on one side of the road and they have back in sites on the lake side of the road. Check in was easy.
If coming from the West, the right turn onto Lakeshore Drive is the right turn from hell. I was able to do it but bent one of the arms on my tow bar. Suggest west bounders go thru the roundabout then turn right on Hammond, then left on Lakeshore. - Allure470

We arrived early Saturday afternoon on Labor Day weekend and was greeted by a gentleman that said not to worry about paying until we left. We did have reservations. We never did register. When we got ready to leave on Tuesday morning, still could not find a manager to pay. Rate on their website said $36 a day before Good Sam discount, so taped a check to managers door and left.
It was mentioned in previous reviews about "great cable and WIFI". The cable did not work and no one at the park could explain how to make it work. WIFI was sporadic. Since we did not register and receive any instructions, had to find the original gentleman and ask for the password. We were forced to use our "Hotspot" frequently to contact family.
Not sure what the schedule for trash pick up was, but the dumpster was overflowing with more trash stacked around the dumpster. The grounds were also filthy. Our poor "four-legged" baby came back from walks with numerous burrs.
We will not return. - vwbluestar

We had originally planned to stay here for a night on our way home from Oregon. However, once we were all setup in one of the lakefront sites, we both enjoyed the setting so much that we decided to stay an extra two days. The manager, absolutely went out of his way to make our stay comfortable.
On Friday night, they even put on a BBQ at their expense - for any of the registered guests. Only a handful of guests showed up, but I think that was because such gatherings are so uncommon these days that not everyone knew about it. Those of us who did attend had a great time. After dark, they even put on an outdoor kid-friendly movie! How often do you see that kind of staff involvement these days!
They're in the middle of doing some serious (expensive) upgrades to the park, and if the results end up being as good as the staff was friendly, it'll be amazing! We were in a 43 foot motorhome and had no problem backing into one of the waterfront sites. There was a nearby place to park our towed vehicle. - RV KEV
