Price shown was for a weekly rate. We really enjoyed our river-front site here, where the site was level and hookups were easy. Sites had new redwood picnic tables, and there were also picnic sites and benches staged along the river's edge. Attractions included watching people fish and float downriver. Raft rentals were located within walking distance, too. The small and very stinky dog run shared with the hotel across the road was located under the highway, where a path connects the two properties. The hotel pool and spa were available for those who wished to go use them, but there was no well-defined ADA path, or signs to point one in exactly the right direction. We would definitely stay here again. Very nice area.
Price reflects Golden Access Pass discount, which is easily available online or at ranger district offices to seniors/disabled. This is a terrific new campground at Lake Almanor. Spacious, level sites are paved with easy access. There is a easy-access RV dump nearby as well. There are polished concrete picnic tables, operational fire rings with grills, and a nice host who offers help daily. They did not accept reservations at this campground, but there were plenty of sites available when we arrived midweek. A staff member at the ranger office did say they might accept reservations for the 2014 season, so it's worth checking on. We would definitely stay here again.
Gorgeously grassy and roomy sites that were level enough are the best features we enjoyed on our one-night stopover here. The host was busy and just showed us to our site and took our money, leaving us to discover anything else for ourselves. For the price, I think we'd elect to travel a little farther down the highway, but otherwise it seemed like a great place, with a nice dog walking area.
We have stayed at this campground several times. It is a great open area with big-city shopping and attractions nearby. Sites are level and hookups are easy, but WiFi is available only in the Cottonwood loop, where it's all paved and the facilities are newer. The price there is about $10 a night more. The only problems we've ever had are the late night parties. This seems to be a popular place for friends to gather and party safely, because they don't have to drive anywhere later. Things get pretty quiet after 10 p.m., though. So it's not really that big of a problem. It's an easy and fun place to camp for families, because there is a water park playground full of sprinklers and a miniature golf course. It's very interesting to see what can be done with reclaimed water here.
We pulled in late and left right after breakfast, so we did not get too much of a feel for this park, but we did leave with a wonderful impression. The host was as nice as could be, offering to help us with the hookups and everything, not that there was anything hard about them. It was all quite easy. There were several long-term folks, but the park was quiet, the site was pretty level, and there was a place to let the dogs go do their things. We would stop here again when traveling on I-5.
We really like this quiet park. They are very pet friendly, except there should be warnings posted at the park and at the entrance to a city-run beautification area. Desert newcomers, like us, need to watch out for jumping cactus if taking advantage of all the surrounding open land for some off-leash or bicycle adventures. There is a veterinarian around the corner, as well as numerous fast-food joints and grocery stores, all within walking distance for healthy people. The dog walk is adequate, and there are large recycling dumpsters available, a nice plus. The WiFi is a joke and it so iffy, it should not even be advertised as an amenity. The cable channel selection is great, but reception isn't. We tried two different sites and it's the same, most channels are grainy on the larger TVs. We would stay here again.
We enjoyed the proximity to everything Las Vegas, but the sites and the park were not ADA-friendly at all. All sites are on islands bounded by rounded curbs that caused our mobility scooter to bottom out. They would only allow a temporary ramp that would be removed and put away after each use. The fee-based Wi-Fi did not work, but there was construction underway to improve it. Cable was very limited and included some HBO channels. Very noisy city location with non-residents constantly walking through the park from the bus stop. Dog runs stank badly of old urine, but there was a quiet side street and a nice dog park about a half-mile away. Some residents were feeding the pigeons and the occasional dead one was sometimes cleaned up, sometimes not. Old park, but otherwise clean. Security guards patrolled regularly, though there was no office open or host on site. One would have to go about a quarter mile to the main office at the Boulder Street park to check mail and such. We would not stay here again because of the ADA.
Clean park in a quiet area. We were especially pleased with the enclosed dog run we used. It was clean, did not stink, and was rather interesting with boulders and such. It was nice to be able to let the dogs run loose for a while. We checked in late at night using the self-serve option. Very easy. We understand the need for fake grass at the sites, as it is a desert location. It was a nice touch of green, much better than being totally surrounded by gravel and sand. We would stay here again.
This park is beautiful and the staff members were very nice. The only problem we had was with a stray male dog running lose. It's sad that the local animal control can't do anything about it. The park ranger said it was a pesky problem. We could not stay there because we had a female in season with us. The park people were happy to refund our money with lots of apologies. So shame on the county, not the park. We would like to try again to stay here. The sites were spread out and not real close to each other like in some parks.
This park is in a beautiful open space area and would be perfect if not for the dirty water problem. They said it was just magnesium from not being used much. For the price, we expected cable or Wi-Fi, at least. We had no television reception either, probably because it is down in a small canyon and we were in a Class B instead of a high-profile RV. They were very relaxed about pets, so we were comfortable there with our dogs. I don't think we'd stay there again; there are other options in the area with better amenities. Also, there was little-to-no water pressure in the bathrooms.
