Good Sam discount for a pull-thru, paved, FHU, 50 amp site. The park office told us they had poor WiFi so we did not use it. We had good Verizon cell and MiFi reception and good satellite reception. The park is nicely maintained and was quiet at night. We would stay here again. We camped at Blue Ox RV Park in a Motorhome.

Best Rv park in the area but it is not accepting long term reservations for snowbirds returning from the south as it is too full. At this time there are no 50 amp sites available for long term or full time, only daily or weekly and there are few of them. They are actually turning away long time customers. With all the larger rigs on the road, it is time for upgrading the 30 amp sites to 50 amp. And the wifi is one of the poorest I have seen in a park of this caliber and to get cable, you must have a cable box supplied by the office which is hard to connect if your tv's are built in to cabinets like most rv's. Park is clean and convenient but certainly needs the amenities to be upgraded. We camped at Blue Ox RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Walmart, Costco and Fred Meyers nearby, WinCo coming soon.

The park was clean, well maintained and the site had plenty of room for us. The staff was very friendly and courteous. We stayed 2 nights. We would stay here again. We camped at Blue Ox RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The park is under new ownership and management and it shows. Registration area, clubhouse and swimming pool area are being redecorated. You can actually drive unser the overhang of the registration area. The bathrooms have been redecorated, look new. The stored RV;s are no longer there and the permanents have been cleaned up. The pet area leaves a lot to be desired, but grab a doggy bag and head for the field next door. Picnic tables were not available at most sites. The camp WiFi is practically non existent due to overuse, but you can use the office router, which works well. Try it you will be pleasantly surprised. We camped at Blue Ox RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Eat at Novaks Hungarian Restaurant, visit the Albany Carousel, talk to the lady at the gift shop and museum. take the walking tour of the old city.

Clean park, easy access, paved roads. All sites were neat and clean, easy to maneuver. Hookups at rear of level sites. Indoor pool was warm, showers and bathrooms were clean. Staff was very friendly. Location is excellent for visiting Albany, or heading north-south on I-5, and there is a Walmart nearby. Adjacent to major community park. We would definitely stay here again.

Nice clean park in a good location. Very busy; we were lucky to get a reservation at the last minute. Roads are wide enough for a 45 footer. They do need to trim their trees to accommodate the taller rigs and their satellite dishes. We did not use any of their facilities. We camped at Blue Ox RV Park in a Motorhome.

Back at the Blue Ox and found it much fuller than in past years, so definitely make reservations. Some past reviews say bad things about the rest rooms and the likes of Beer Can Bob, but don't believe them. There are lots of permanents living here but park management is doing a great job of keeping the park up. My rate reflects a monthly rate for the summer. What I find strange is the monthly rate is the same as the park I stay at in AZ and that park has six tennis courts,six pickleball courts, two Olympic size pools, "good" Wi-Fi and lots of planned activities. What's wrong here? Blue Ox really is a good park though and I will always come back. We camped at Blue Ox RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice park. It does have, however, a lot of "out of control" kids (running through other RVers' sites, skateboards, some young girls ran through the mens bathroom while my husband was in it, etc.) and dogs not on leashes. I don't think I would stay here again because of it. Staff is very nice but late getting in in the morning and late coming back from lunch. Several RVs had to wait past the lunch hour to check in. Doesn't set a very good "tone". We camped at Blue Ox RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is an easy on/off the interstate. The park sites are level with concrete. The hook ups for electric/water/cable are centrally located but the sewer is toward the rear and you may need an extension. The WiFi is great. We have stayed here a couple of times and have never been disappointed. We camped at Blue Ox RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We have stayed at this park several times in the past. Close to hospital. One time there was no TV and no Wi-Fi. Asked for compensation - we were told sorry. Many times the lights are burned out in your parking place. When the TV works there are only about 12 channels. People who run it are not well informed. Many long term residents and many are not maintained at all. Many beer cans and old garage sale items are visible as you drive around the park. We camped at Blue Ox RV Park in a Motorhome.

Rate is for a 50 amp FHU, back-in site. Roads and pads are are concrete in excellent condition, and most sites are pull-through. Sites are not large, but there is enough room to extend your slides and awning. Grass between most sites, and ones not grass have gravel between them. Commenting on a recent review that called this park "a shabby old park," that person must have stayed at one of the two other parks in the area and erroneously posted their review to this park, as it is anything but what they said. Nice laundry and shower facilities, and the pool is indoors for year around use. In season you can pick wild blackberries along their entrance road. We would definitely stay here again if in the area. We camped at Blue Ox RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a shabby old park that is Not well maintained. We can’t understand how anyone could give it a 9 or 10, it certainly does not deserve that high a mark. The Wi-Fi is nonexistent and their cable TV can’t be accessed through the utility pole like everyone else. You practically have to tear your TV apart to make it work. We decided to skip it. If you must stay in Albany, stay somewhere else. We camped at Blue Ox RV Park in a Motorhome.

Staff was very helpful with reservation and check-in. Very convenient to park where we attended a dog show. Lack of grass was the big disadvantage of this park. Sites somewhat close together and not a great deal of shade. Very convenient to I-5. Would certainly stay here again although a one night place rather than a destination.

It is located with an easy on/off the interstate. All sites are paved with concrete so no need to put something under your tires. The sites are level with good hook-ups. The rest rooms are clean. This is the second time we stayed here and would stay again. We camped at Blue Ox RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

New managers and owner and we have seen a lot of older rigs that were stored here moved out to make more room for travelers and long term rigs. Park looks much cleaner than it has for years. Good small inside pool but spa is out of commission. Very close to Lassen RV if you need repairs. Nice park, restaurants and shopping. We camped at Blue Ox RV Park in a Motorhome.
