Checked in & was escorted to our site. This park has a million dollar view of Mt Shasta. WOW! It's a small, well run, clean, friendly campground. We will be back! Lot spacing was spacious with some shade. Site surface was asphalt and featured a picnic table. We camped at Friendly RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Enjoy Mt Shasta.

Our stay was somewhat tempered because we were assigned to a site where my air levelers would not level (excessive slope). That meant no slides out for the night. Quite a few extended stays at the back of the park. Was not bothered by Pilot Station or train. Nice grounds with plenty of trees and shade. No satellite at our site. We would stay here again if we could get a more level site. We camped at Friendly RV Park in a Motorhome.

They do not accept credit cards. Only cash or checks. The WiFi is good but the cable does not come with a directory so you're on your own finding channels. The spaces are gravel but fairly level. Overall the park is clean and quiet. We camped at Friendly RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Good spot for either over night or a few days to visit Mt. Shasta area. Only 50 sites. Large sites, some shaded, some paved pull thru. Even though it is next to a Pilot Travel Center you aren't bothered by truck noise. Railroad alongside park but no night noise. Easy walk to several restaurants. No pool or playground or other amenities. Many sites satellite friendly. Water, sewer and free cable. Staff very pleasant. We camped at Friendly RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nice overnight park, wouldn't stay for many days unless visiting Mr. Shasta. Sites are asphalt and shaded pull through and are stacked, so someone may be behind you. There are smaller back-in sites around the perimeter. No amenities but the Pilot next door is great for a fill-up, very easy access. We camped at Friendly RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Just south of the turn-off for Highway 97 for those of you headed in that direction.

Utility posts and sewer in awkward location. Views of Mt Shasta as advertised. Good WiFi. Just behind Pilot truck stop but not too noisy. We camped at Friendly RV Park in a Motorhome.

This park has deteriorated since we last stayed here a little over two years ago. We had a lot of trouble with the electrical system - the breaker kept tripping and finally fried - necessitating hooking up the truck and 5th wheel and moving to another spot at 10 pm in the dark, snow, and freezing cold. Long-term residents of the park told us that this is an on-going problem. In addition, the insulation has been removed from around the water pipes where they come from the ground, making it futile to use water at this time of year even though we have a heated hose and did use their water the last time we stayed here (December 2012). We previously enjoyed this small, low-key park - for its ease on & off I-5 and especially for its incredible view of Mt. Shasta. Hope they can rectify these issues, but until then would recommend people stay away! We camped at Friendly RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Low key park. Sewer dump pipe is too small so a standard fitting doesn't fit. 30 amp service is not enough if it's hot and you have two A/C's. Pull through sites are very long and setup for two rigs so you may have someone else in the same site. Roads, rigs, and tree positioning can make it a bit of a challenge to get through the park. We camped at Friendly RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nice RV park. It was close to a truck stop and we did hear a lot of vehicle noise through the night. Convenient location to Mt Shasta area. We camped at Friendly RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stay here a few times a year and absolutely love this place! The park is clean and the staff are friendly and knowledgeable about the area. We love the location as it has easy access to the freeway while still giving the feeling of being deep in the woods. this place has everything you could possibly need and much more! We camped at Friendly RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very friendly camp host at check-in. Have both pull-thru and back in sites. Back in sites have plenty of room - we have a 40' MH and had plenty of room for our tow vehicle. Only complaints are no 50 amp so could only run one A/C (and the weather was HOT) and the water pressure was not great. We camped at Friendly RV Park in a Motorhome.

Medium sized park with nice view to Mount Shasta and flat shaded sites. Handy for various diners serving the nearby truck stop - didn't hear them but we were across the other side of the park. Men's restrooms were very strange - two wide stalls, one with a gate and the other with a curtain: I've no idea why anyone would make them like that but hope it doesn't catch on.

In our nine years of full timing and over 250 reviews on this site this is only the second "1" we have ever rated. Not because of the facilities, but because we were lied to by the host. On arrival, we learned when setting up that our site was 30 amp only, although we had asked for a full hookup 50 amp site when making the reservation. The host explained that "all the 50 amp lines were out" and that 30 amp would be fine. We explained that it was in the mid-80s, and with a large motor home, the A/C and residential refrigerator would quickly max out the amperage and using other appliances would be problematic. He shrugged and repeated that the lines were out. The next day we watched as two other motor homes pulled into sites next to us and plugged into the 50 mp socket (which ours did not have)and miraculously the lines apparently repaired themselves as they had usable power. Whether a ploy to save the park's power consumption and force us to use their laundry I'm don't know, but lying to the customer is unforgivable. In addition, when we made the reservation the host failed to advise us that the entry road was closed due to what appeared to be long-term construction. We had to call to be given alternate directions. And finally, we were treated to a display of the Weed Police Department's efficiency when numerous patrol cars arrived and arrested one of the long term residents. The park is for sale, and if sold the new owners should consider replacing the current host and some of the long term residents. There are other parks in the area - don't stay here. We camped at Friendly RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice stop right off interstate 5 with easy access from the freeway and within walking distance to several restaurants. This was a very pet friendly park with lots of grassy areas for our two large dogs. Sites were level with strong WiFi and cable TV. The layout of the park makes you feel very safe and the sites are very wide for your slide-outs. Although next to a Pilot, we heard no noise and it was very convenient for refueling in the morning. Bathrooms are modern and clean. Met the Owners, and they were very helpful and friendly. I played Basketball with their young son (I lost). Great experience and will stay here again our return home.

We camped here in our 40' motorhome. The park was very clean with both pull-throughs and back-in sites. We chose a back-in site and it was like being in the woods with beautiful pine trees around you, you'd never think you were just off I-5. The bathrooms were very modern and clean. There was some road construction going on in the area but the road crew were more than helpful. We were told work would be done in two weeks so not to be of concern. Great Wi-Fi and full cable TV. We had a great stay and will make this our stop when traveling to Portland from Fresno. This is an RV park and we did not notice any long term guests. We camped at Friendly RV Park in a Motorhome.
