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. We camped at Golden Rule RV Park in a Motorhome.

Simple overnight stay. Arrived late, allocated spot already taken. Recommend better management of spaces. Never saw anyone in charge. Pool and restrooms close by. Nice layout and location. A bit off the beaten track and a bit hard to find. No WiFi. Good value for money. We camped at Golden Rule RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

One mile down a steep, winding, paved road off highway. Campground is in a beautiful setting, next to a mobile home community. Old park, but fairly well maintained, lots of shade, tightly grouped gravel/grass lots. The MAJOR FLAW in the park is the old, weak, 30 amp electricity. We hooked up to site 24 and discovered we couldn't run any two items at once. While drawing less than 25 amps, our voltage crashed to under 100 volts and set off an alarm in our RV. That low level of voltage will destroy electronics. Park office said they thought site 24 problem had been fixed and told us to connect to site 23 box which was fine. When I plugged in to 23, I got an alarm showing the box had reverse polarity, also dangerous. At that point we decided to cut short our planned 3 day stay and left. It's a shame such a beautiful park setting has a serious, potentially catastrophic and costly problem for rvers. We camped at Golden Rule RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This pretty park is truly a gem. It is next to the ranch where the racehorse, Seabiscuit, lived out his retirement. The property is lush and beautiful, with lots of grass and trees. There are wild turkeys, deer, rabbits and squirrels. The only downside is there is no tv or WiFi reception and in fact, cell phone reception is poor too, because it is located at the bottom of a canyon. But if you prefer peace and quiet, it is great. The other RV in town has more amenities, but they charge extra for everything. This park is a much better bargain unless you have lots of kiddies that need entertaining. We camped at Golden Rule RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

WalMart in Ukiah, about 30 mi south, but not a Super store.
Safeway in both Ukiah and Willits. Willits is just 15 min north.
Lots of shopping and restaurants in downtown Ukiah... very cute.
The Branding Iron is nearby and excellent for steaks and seafood.

Golden Rule is located right off Rt 101 but the road to the RV Park is twisty and a bit narrow. The hostess was very friendly and helpful with various sites in the area. Looks like most of the back-in sites are taken by permanent residents. The pull-throughs are long enough but are a bit narrow so the camping side is a little tight. There are a fair number of trees so getting the slides out can be a little tricky. No wifi, our ATT worked here but no Verizon at all. The campground is a bit small but there is a private road that is great for walking dogs. The resort is about 15 minutes from downtown Willets and about 1 hour from Fort Bragg. There is a bit of traffic noise from 101 but it's not intrusive. The resort felt very quiet and comfortable. The permanent residence kept their areas very tidy and it felt like a nice neighborhood. We would stay here again if we were in the area. We camped at Golden Rule RV Park in a Motorhome.

Sweet park in a valley off 101. One mile down a road to find the park. Office lady was very nice. Site was nice, long and level for us. 30 amp only, and cash/check only. Turkeys and deer and rabbits come visit nightly and in the morning. We'd stay here again. We camped at Golden Rule RV Park in a Motorhome.

Call for directions, otherwise you'll have trouble finding the turnoff. Also, nearby is the ranch where Seabiscuit was trained.

It is about 3 miles downhill from the highway turnoff, but still relatively close to the highway. There is some road noise but earplugs where not needed. When you check in for only a night or two you will probably be assigned one of the pull-thru sites right beside the pool. Take the short walk to the lower level where the sites are and have a look first. Right beside the pool there is some sort of power transformer which is buzzing permanently. We rather choose a back-in site at the very end which provided good privacy. Sites are gravel with some grass in between and a few trees. Hookups were ok. Wifi is available in the laundry room only. Our Verizon MiFi didn't work here. Very friendly staff. For supermarkets and/or gas stations you have to drive five miles back to Willits. If you want to see the Seabiscuit Statue, you have to walk or drive to the adjacent farm about a mile away. We'll stay here again when travelling on 101. We camped at Golden Rule RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stopped for one night on our trip north. This park is about a mile off Hwy 101 down a fairly steep incline. The lady who checked us in was very friendly. The RV section is located on a lower level than the mobile home village. There are nice trees in the pull thru sites. Electric is only 30A but the daytime high was only 80, so that was no problem as we didn't use the a/c. There is a pool and restrooms by the RV section, and a laundry located by the front office. There is no cable or WiFi, but my AT&T hotspot worked fine here. Our rate includes a Good Sam discount. We would stay here again. We camped at Golden Rule RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We had a large pull-through, the park is quiet and well maintained for an older park. The laundry room was very clean. The park is part of Ridgewood Ranch the home of Seabiscuit; we had a great tour there. The park is about 1 mile down a wide road that is fairly steep, but it is not a problem. It has only 30 amp service and the sewer is not well located, other than that it is a nice small park. We will return. We camped at Golden Rule RV Park in a Motorhome.

One of the complaints I read was about lack of signage and how it was easy to miss the turn. Possibly because of those comments, I was diligent about looking for the turnoff. Here are my hints if you are traveling southbound on Hwy 101. The park is about 7 miles south of Willits. At about 6 miles, you will pass a weigh station. At about 6.5 miles, there is a sharp turn where the speed limit drops to 45 mph. Look for mile marker HUM 101 39.5 (stands for Humboldt County Hwy 101 if you are wondering). You will see one of the yellow intersection signs showing a right-hand turn. There is also an short right-hand turn lane. The Ridgewood Ranch sign is visible along with the Good Sam signage. I could see how it would be easy to miss if the foliage was grown up and around it, but when we came by it was pretty clear to me. It’s a nice little park. First you will come up on the mobile home section where the office and the laundromat is. Office hours are minimal. The check in gal called me to verify about what time we would be there because I guess they are only in the office from 11am - 2pm on Tuesday and Wednesday (9-5 the other days of the week). We wouldn’t get there in time. She gave me our space number and told me there was a reserved sign on the post. The management does not take credit or debit cards here; it is cash or check. The envelopes and registration information is on the front of the office door. Be sure to look on the driveway office entrance, not the back entrance from the laundromat. It was a bit confusing for me, but I finally found it. The cost for a full hook up for the night is $35; $32 for Good Sam Members. This park has Wi-Fi in the laundromat area only. Our Mi-Fi did pick up a signal but it was slower than slow….think dial up at its worst. We did hook up the booster, but did not take the antenna outside. I was more interested in getting the DirecTV dish set up as they have no cable here. I would have given the park a higher score if there was better Wi-Fi as we need the internet access. Our DirecTV dish picked up all the channels without a problem, so the lack of cable TV was not a big deal for me. Cell service with Verizon was adequate, but I would not call it good. There was a nice little pool, but it was wasn't warm enough for swimming while we were there. I ducked in the restrooms which were clean but dated. I would stay here again, either overnight or for a couple of days. We couldn't stay long term because of the lack of Wi-Fi. Very peaceful. We had pull-through site 35. Next time I would opt for a back-in site next to the creek for better viewing of the wild life. We camped at Golden Rule RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

A gem of an overnight location: far enough off highway 101 to be almost free of traffic noise; clean restroom and showers, warmed against the cold outdoors (it was raining); shower stalls w/ lots of space, good shower head, & plenty of clothes hooks! There was a little creek along property line, gurgling peaceful sound for back-in sites. Small; only about 6 pull-throughs. A few nice mature trees. Easy to find , traveling northbound. Adjacent to well maintained mobile home park. Office unmanned when we arrived at 5:15 Sunday. Our rate was with a Good Sam discount. They also discount for AAA.

Great laundry facilities. Yes, you can hear the highway a little if you sit outside, but not from inside your rig. Wifi works great in the laundry room. Be sure to call ahead and get instructions -- easy to miss the turnoff from 101. We will return when we are in the area. To me, this is not a destination resort, but it is a good overnight stop.

This is a very quiet location with some wildlife roaming about. However, the pull thru sites are very close together; some have room for an awning, others do not. Most back-in sites are larger. Be sure to get precise instructions on how to find the place - the signage is very poor. I would not return. We camped at Golden Rule RV Park in a Motorhome.

The park provides sites for permanent mobile homes, as well as for RVs. The areas are separated. Stayed there for one night and enjoyed the stay. The park is a bit down the hill from Highway 101, so I couldn't make out any traffic noise and it was pleasantly quiet in the park. There's a pool in the area where the RV sites are. RV sites are a bit too close for my liking but you should still be able to use your slide outs. Staff was friendly. Wi-Fi is only available at the office/laundry, but is working fine. It's a nice place to relax for a few days if you got nothing else to do but to sit outside your rig and read a book. Would stay here again. We camped at Golden Rule RV Park in a Truck Camper.
