This is a very nice, well maintained park close to downtown venues like the AT&T center, the Alamo, and the Riverwalk. The park is gated. Interior roads are paved and in pretty good condition. Pads are level gravel with grass and picnic tables. Lots of mature trees throughout. Big grassy playground and dog run. Very quiet. You can drive to the downtown attractions in less than 10 minutes, but a bus ride requires no transfers and costs a fraction of what downtown parking does. Grocery and Walmart are about 10 minutes away also. We would stay here again.
Very well maintained park with helpful, professional staff. Everything is in excellent condition. Side by side hookups, level gravel pads with a fence and hedge separating wide pull through sites. Interior roads are paved and in excellent condition. 5 minutes to shopping. 5 minutes to Mesilla. Wi-Fi worked well. Curbside trash pickup. We would stay here again.
This park is expertly maintained. Perfect, wide paved interior roads, level gravel pads, asphalt parking space for toad, cement patio, and a citrus tree at every site. Restrooms, laundry, pool, and spa are all pristine. No significant traffic noise, but there are train tracks nearby and a fair amount of trains pass each night. The onsite restaurant, the Florizona Grill, had pretty good food. There is a grocery store and a Camping World 5 minutes away. Other shopping and dining is about 20 minutes away. We stayed for two weeks. Seems like the kind of place people stay for month or more as a warm spot in the winter. We would stay here again.
We stay here to visit our daughter at Northern Arizona University, which is 5 minutes away. The park is in quite poor condition with crumbling interior roads and rutted sites. No maintenance is evident from year to year. There is a fair amount of freeway noise and trains run all night (although I like the sound of the train). There is nothing to really recommend here except proximity to the university.
We found this park OK as an overnight, but would not want a longer stay. The park is well off the freeway, but easy to access. Grocery and major retail are close by. Very quiet. Interior roads are lightly graveled dirt as are the sites. Tall trees and hedges separate the sites, which are quite narrow. Lots of dust and dirt. Stickers were hard on the dog. We would stay again overnight, but not longer.
This park is a very nice overnight while traveling I-5 in central California. Easy access from the freeway, nice wide paved interior roads, spacious pull-through spaces, Wi-Fi (no cable), two pools, nice laundry, clean restrooms. Everything is very well maintained. Although it's only a bit over a quarter mile from the freeway and there is a truck stop / travel plaza adjacent, we felt the noise level was low. There's a Baja Fresh at the travel plaza and an AM/PM convenience store also. We would happy to spend the night here again.
This campground is good as an overnight stay along I-15, I-40 and CA-58. The staff took us to our site and helped us park. Interior roads and sites are dirt - they could really benefit from a gravel topping throughout. TV worked well as did the Wi-Fi. The I-15 freeway is a bit over a mile away so there was no traffic noise. We would overnight here again.
As long as you want to be in the city, you'll like this park. The park is very well maintained - it always looks ready for a photo shoot. Pool, spa, laundry, and toddler playground are pristine. Sites are very level and amply spaced with grass and a small concrete patio. Each site is raked and swept daily. Food and service at the onsite bar and grill (the Crest) was very good. It's a 5 minute walk to Camping World, and 5 minute drive to Walmart, Target, movie theater and mall. The staff is very helpful. A slight negative is that the CA99 freeway is about 1/2 mile away and the traffic sound is noticeable (but not overly so). There is also a railroad track a quarter mile away with trains passing through two or three nights a week. While we normally stay in small towns, we had to be in Bakersfield for just over three weeks and we're glad we stayed here.
You will like this park if traffic noise, sirens and gunfire do not disturb you. Visually the campground looks like a suburban city park with neat trimmed lawns and trees. Sites are mostly pull through, paved asphalt pads (but not level), separated from the next by a 12 foot grass strip with a pine tree and a picnic table. Grass is green - sprinklers run every night. Separated from the park by a hedge is the 101 freeway. Kenmar/Riverwalk which wraps two other sides is a thoroughfare for large trucks and construction equipment. The fire station is on the other side of the 101. All day Saturday shotgun fire from a nearby ranch rang out over the traffic noise. This was one of the noisiest parks we've stayed at. There is a large, well stocked general store on site. A small playground looks good for kids 2-6. Laundry was clean, had all newer machines and was expensive ($2.25 wash, $1.50 dry). It's a five minute walk to a path that runs for miles along the Eel river. Shopping and dining in Fortuna is about five minutes by car. We would not stay here again.
Friendly and helpful staff - they take you to your site and when we had a big storm with high winds coming they went around warning each camper and helped people stow items that might be blown around. Good asphalt roads and gravel sites. Nearly every site but ours was very level. Wi-Fi worked well, interrupted only by a big storm. CATV had 80 channels, worked well. We felt the sites were larger than average, but just gravel - no grass or trees for sites. All newer laundry equipment. Easy walk to beach and a few restaurants, short drive to other spots in town. Nothing for pets but three designated potty areas. Overall, not great visual appeal, but the location is good, staff are good, and their systems all work well.
We really liked this park. The staff are super friendly and helpful. The grounds are lush, carved out of the redwood forest and wild blackberry thicket. Most of the sites are large, can accommodate the largest RVs, and have large grassy lawns adjacent. Only a few spots (the pull through spots on the lower level) are not spacious. Sites are leveled gravel pads. You can glimpse the ocean from most of park and hear the sea lions barking, as well. Wi-Fi was pretty good, except in the rain. Laundry was clean with newer HE washers and dryers.
We really like this campground. 366 sites seems like a lot, but realize the property is about 1/2 square mile so the density is really low. Lots of grassy space between sites - the section we camped in had 70 feet of grass and trees between units on the awning side, 10 feet on the utility side. There are hiking trails all through the property. The Verde River runs along one side of the property and you can reach it down a steep but easy 50 yard trail. WiFi is in the clubhouse only. There was no 4g service accessible at our site either. Cottonwood and Clarkdale are a short 10 minute drive from the property. Sedona and Jerome are just 20 minutes. The property is well back from the roads so there is no traffic noise at all. When the sun goes down you'll need a flashlight to get around - it's very dark, but that makes for spectacular star gazing. We plan to return for another stay.
We just stopped here for an overnight stay. Seems like a good value for $27 (including tax) per night. The park seems new: there is still construction going on, but all the sites are complete and there is landscaping (but the trees haven't grown to the point of providing shade yet). The sites are very large, very level dirt with crushed rock topper. Pedestals for electric, water and sewer have a concrete base which should make them last longer. There are two fenced dog runs. Roads inside the park are brand new, wide black top. The park is a quarter mile from the freeway, which is convenient but adds a bit of noise. I might have given a slightly higher rating, but at the time of our visit there were lots of ants (and some spiders) at the park and our site: red ants, black ants, large ants, tiny ants.
I wasn't really expecting this to be such a pretty place, but it sure was. Mountain views, mature landscaping that was meticulously maintained. The sites were decent size and nearly all shaded, but still with room for awnings if you are so inclined. The pool, laundry and bathrooms were spotless and the onsite general store was well stocked. Fenced playgrounds for kids and for dogs have benches in the shade for less energetic parents. The location is about 5 minutes from the I-10 freeway so there isn't any traffic noise.
This park is best suited for smaller motorhomes either class C or B and under 29'. That is not to say there weren't big rigs crammed into very small spots. The roads in the campground are tight, twisty , hilly and made even more challenging to navigate by guests parking cars on the road. I scraped the bottom of my coach cresting a hill. There are only 4 pull through spaces in the park. Sites are not assigned - you have to drive around and find your own. There is no sewer connection, making the available water connection of limited value. All that said, the setting is pretty, heavily forested, and you can reach the Russian River down a path I'd say was less than 100 yards long.
