16 Parks near Visalia, California
Oct 2016 - $50.00
We stayed from Oct 8 - Nov 5. We paid the monthly rate. The staff are helpful and nice and the park is very nice. Groceries are about a half mile donuts, a nice Mexican restaraunt and Carl's Jr. are an easy two block walk. Several repeat seasonals here who repeat because it is a nice park. Prices have just increased to $50 a day and $650 a month. - LostSoulCa

Nice cement pads. Convenient to shopping, restaurants and Sequoia National Park. Managers very friendly and accommodating. They invited us to barbecue that the park had. - Geezer traveler

Although I don't usually choose a Mobile Home Community to stay in, this one had quite a few sites put aside for RV's. The park was neat and clean and the person checking us in was very friendly. They had a lovely small pool and the location was good.
It's about 3 miles from Hwy 99 but in a very quiet location close to Hwy 198. Worth the drive for the quiet. Our site was just long enough for our 40 ft Rv, although we were told it was 50 ft. Good location for shopping and getting into downtown. Not much room to walk the dog, as we didn't want him to use people's sites who live here. Verizon cell and air card were good. We would stay here again. - Danni

This seems like a nice park, lots of green grass and trees spaced about the property. It does appear as if the surrounding area has grown around it, so the drive in through the neighborhood is kind of odd, but we never felt unsafe. There's a little store on site with basics and limited grocery items, and everyone we dealt with was very friendly and helpful. They put us in a pull-through on the end of a row, which was nice. No one near us, and we did stick out a little on each end but that was ok since the park was so empty on New Year's Day. - Denise and Glenn

We stayed here in early November and based our visits to Sequoia and Kings Canyon national parks from this KOA. Fairly typical KOA, although this one did have quite a few long-term or "permanent" residents. Adequate gravel interior roads, adequate gravel pull-thru parking space. We've stayed in better and stayed in worse, which is why we rated it average. FYI, California RV parks all have higher than average nightly rates.
There maybe RV parks closer to the national parks, but for our size rig this was a better choice. Be aware that this is in the central valley and with all the agricultural operations going on you will have hazy skies and sometimes an odor unique to this big ag/dairy producing region. Bear in mind Fresno, just 30 miles or so north, is one of most air polluted cities in USA. It was obvious to us as we couldn't see the towering Sierra mountain range just 40 miles east of town. Downtown Visalia is charming. - Bruins_in_the_Bus

Messy, older KOA. Lots of permanent residents. When I pulled in to my designated spot my neighbor (who smoked right under our window) complained that I was blocking his satellite dish. Nothing I could do about that, wasn't about to move. No where to go. Spots are tight, barely had room for my 38' rig and tow car. Groundkeeper made me pull forward after my jacks were down to make more room behind us - was not necessary, but I did not make a fuss. One reviewer mentioned the possibility of a mess in the rain. That is now confirmed. Stepped in a mud pit on the way to disconnect. To top it all off you have to drive through an unsavory neighborhood to get to the park. Perhaps it is better in the sunshine, with a smaller rig, after a shorter drive. - Tiny Beast

This is our second stay here after visiting almost exactly two years ago. No significant changes noted. Nothing fancy... just a safe place to spend the night with electric and water hookups (dump station on site).
We use cellular internet and found AT&T's LTE signal was surprisingly weak during this visit. Verizon's LTE signal was slightly stronger, but we found both AT&T and Verizon data speeds to be very slow.
There were maybe a dozen rigs here during our visit but plenty of spaces were left. There's a moderate amount of nearby road noise during the day and evening, but it died off during the night. - Gyropilot
Apr 2016 - $20.00
Not much to add to the other reviews except that the park receives very little maintenance. The blacktop is starting to disintegrate and could use a good sweeping. The hook-ups are overgrown with limbs. There were only a small number of rigs  in the lot. Back-up as far as you can because the hook-ups are way in the back of the site. Reservations are not accepted or needed. I will stay here again because it is only a few blocks to the Visalia Country Club - a nice course with a great clubhouse. - bradydane2009
Nov 2014 - $20.00
Nothing fancy, but this is a nice, clean, safe place to spend a night. Sites are nothing more than back-in parking spots located behind the lodge in an asphalt surfaced parking lot. The electric and water connections are at the rear of each spot. The property borders a residential area to the rear and is quiet at night. While there are no sewer hookups at the spots, a dump station is located on site. There's a 7 day stay limit per month and $5 dry camping is available ONLY when all hookup sites are filled. Voltage was good during our stay. We did not use the water. Both AT&T and Verizon have a moderately strong LTE signals here. We'll definitely come stay again. - Gyropilot
Apr 2010 - $22.00
Small, campground north of Visalia, with predominantly permanent residents. Only 30 amp service and our 32 foot motorhome with tow barely fit into one of their pull through sites. Could not connect sewer hose because of small pull through size. Located right next to Hwy 99 so expect alot of road noise. Facilities are primitive and in disrepair. Pass on this one and head north to the next major town. - Happy G

Nice, quick park off the freeway. Dirt roads and tall trees. There is freeway noise. It's a good overnight place. Friendly staff. - mycelia

Well not stay here ever! The park is filled with out of date registration RVs some have 1996 tags. Not one friendly camper said hi. This park could be nice if cleaned out. It would take many tow trucks to move the broken down RVs. - titanium

This is a very noisy place to stay. Trucks coming and going all night long. Very near the hwy and a gas station for trucks. Did not honor the Passport America price stated in the book. Would not stay here again. - pretty girl
Oct 2016 - $25.00
OK for a quick stop using Passport America. Easy off the Highway 99. Verizon worked fine. Decent amount of over the air tv channels. Issues: 50 amp receptacle was upside down, so we had to use the 30 amp side with an adapter, Wifi did not work and cable had some issues, with ABC, CBS and NBC not coming in at all. We wanted to go to the highly rated mexican restaurant across the street, but it was closed on a Sat early evening?? :-( And as others have mentioned there is highway and train noise, so we used earplugs to sleep. - Metamorphosis Road

Campsite is ok; barbeque and quite big. The showers and restrooms are very clean and spacy. But the noise due to the highway and the railway are enourmous. It wasn't a comfy night! - WorldTravelers

This is a nice smaller camp ground with pull through sites with water and electric available as well as a dump station. The sites were gravel but pretty level. The camp hosts were very friendly and kept the place spotless. The camp ground is about 30 minutes from the Sequoia National Park, which is a magnificent place to visit. All in all this a great spot as a gateway to the National Park. - Walter48

Like another poster said there's been some effort to improve the park but the owners have fallen short. Check in was a comic show. Took us 30 minutes . We ended up unhooking vehicles and going back in and the clerk still was working on finding our reservation and site. .Big rigs here aren't welcome by the signs of overhanging trees on the access roads and in the site. I carry a tree trimmer around for such cases as i had to cut branches in site to pull slides out There was a lot of gravel added to areas of travel but twice as much is needed. my patio was fine dirt and with any wind created a dust bowl. Overall the park was very dusty.
We never sat outdoors as dust was flying all around us so stayed inside or visited local attractions.
The worst problem was electrical. Parks power kept blowing at the main circuit or the voltage was so low (100-105) that my surge protector would shut off power . I had to run generator during day to run a/c. Complained to management but they came around to fix or remedy.
I left a day early
We stayed here so we wouldn't have to run the road up to 3 rivers area but would not choose this park again. - Big Rigger

Park is clean and has very big spaces. People are very nice and helpful. The only problem is the internet is very limited but they are working on making it better. - Rhonda Morris

The front office was nice. Park was run down. Would not think of it as a resort. Right on freeway. Lots of road noise. Right on train tracks. Never will plan a stay here again. - Corine

We were dismayed to be kept awake from other residents. It appears that the entire park is partly filled with workers from a construction company and they are partiers. With the long park available to the hostess I don't know why she put us in the mix. It was very distressing not to get our needed sleep. There are extra charges for electricity for one night $8.19 and for my favorite "Tengo internet!" We will not go back, it used to be a nice place, even without water in the river, it was quiet and peaceful. - saturn7

We arrived on a Friday nite hoping for a decent last night of vacation before heading home. We arrived and had to wait 30 minutes for checking in because they were at lunch. Lady was nice but gave us a spot that an RV was already in so we took a grass spot which was mostly dirt with cigarette butts everywhere. Water and electric worked good but space was small between RV's. We ended up in the party section so with the train and freeway noise I realized we weren't in Kansas anymore!
The sites were just not maintained and it looked like longtime residents were there. The other sites on gravel were better but still had a trailer park feel.
This place screams for security and a crew to maintain it. There were beer cans and trash everywhere and the pet leash rule was not enforced so beware if you have dogs. There was noise from other campers into the night and I don't think quiet times are even in the rule section. Freeway noise was bad but that's not the parks problem. It's the lack of personnel and security and maintenance. And a park like this needs operators to be there at least 12 hours a day.
Wish it was better and with a lot of help it could be. Wouldn't stay here again. - Offshrdude

We have been here before and enjoyed the peace and quiet of being off the road away from the highway and near the river area (only has water in mid summer) This time we were surrounded by workers who partied all night, had to pay for our electricity ($8.19 for one night) on top of the $45.00 and were charged for Tengo internet ($4.00) if we wanted it for one night. We asked for a partial refund due to the extreme noise while we were trying to sleep but no dice. We will not return. We don't need to be nickel and dimed for our stay. It is an insult. - saturn7

Was all right for a couple of nights. Do not recommend for a long term stay, did not have much to offer in way of amenities. Site map stated there were trash bins throughout the park; after a 10 minute walk we found 1 near the laundry room.
We were there in November, park had the feel it was closed for the season. - Our-Wandering-Casa

This place is not as described on-line. There is no "marina" as the water is all dried up. Nothing but a big sand pit where the marina was. Office was closed when we arrived, but someone did come and register us. Office hours are terrible, they are never open. I like that it is gated, but there really is no reason since its difficult to find. The only people there are permanent residents. It is all dirt pads and the garbage dump was overflowing. The laundry facility was clean and nearby our site. We stayed for 2 days while we toured the area, but will not return. The place needs better management. - DUstich

This is a county fairgrounds, it is a place to park with full hookups. There isn't a dog park, there is plenty of grass across the street for dog pottying. There are no close restrooms or showers. There are no picnic tables. There are no walking distance food sources. There are no playgrounds for children. This is only a place to park. - C.J. Arizona
Apr 2011 - $20.00
The site we had was grassy but uneven. The fairground staff were friendly. The 20 dollars was a bit steep for what it was when I compare it to other fairgrounds we have been at for less money. Would not go the distance to get here again. - Rib

We had talked with the manager several times on the phone about staying here. We were told there were plenty of 50amp spaces available: several pull-throughs and we were to park where we liked. Upon arrival this turned out not to be the case. The pull-through sites are reserved for the "carnies" although there were no events going on. Only one other spot was available with 50amp and it was unlevel, under low hanging trees and looking out on the dumpsters. Both sides of that site were occupied by live-in campers with no pride in their surroundings. We opted to turn around and leave. (We ultimately did not stay here.) - blackbeauty

Stayed in a 38 foot Class A RV. This campground is really not designed for large coaches. The grade coming into the campground was around 8% and tight turns to get to our site. There is a clean dump station area but we felt too hard for us to use as it is at top of hill but due to our length we were apprehensive to safely get in and out. Very clean and beautiful area in March. Hot shower in Women's side but Men's side had no hot water. - Scooterd16

We took a road trip this summer for our family vacation and left the camper behind, opting for tents in the mountain air. We loved the Sequoia Forest and cannot wait to return soon. The bear boxes kept food safe and we enjoyed so many day hikes up to the surrounding lakes - absolutely stunning. - PeachyCreative

Absolutely lovely campground, great lake views. Crowded at weekends - can be hard to find a good site. Some sites sloping. Operated by U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. It can be reserved through ReserveAmerica. - IanS
