Excellent RV Resort. Most are pull through sites. Staff are very helpful in helping you direct you to your site and answering any questions about the surrounding area. We traveled a long distance and didn't want to unhook for an overnight stay. The girls at the office told us about an Italian restaurant that delivers with a 10% discount if you say your staying at Durango's. Great food.

First of all the advertising is misleading. Yes it is right on the river, but only 6 sites are, since only motor homes or trucks with camper shells can make the sharp turn. The owner greets you and guides you into your space. Since you are on a much higher elevation than the river ( river has flooded this area several times through the years shown on a pole by the office) many can not see the river from their sites. Several of the sites up close to the river are prefabricated trailers for rent. The roads are gravel and dirt, even though their ad says they are paved and gravel (possibly the one row for the moto rhomes by the river could be).When people drive in they kick up dust from the huge chunks of gravel and dirt. The sites are on fairly level grass with a picnic table, no patio that was advertised. The park Wi-Fi never showed up on the list of possible connections, so I used the connection from the resort next door that was unsecure. Even then it was weak at times and would disconnect.The jet boats can stop at the dock to pick you up, but if you do you will lose about 5 miles of the ride and get no photo taken of you from the jet boat company. They take the picture from the highway bridge in town. The jet boats also leave from town. This park (not a resort with dirt roads) is about 15 minutes from the town of Gold Beach. So if you need restaurants, fuel or groceries (the prices are very high at the park) keep this in mind. We will never stay here again, so far, so dusty and you have to walk to the edge of the park to see the view.

This is a wonderful resort. There are 11 river sites at can be backed into for trailers, or driven straight in for motorhomes. There is a utility tower with cable, water and electricity on both sides for easy use. Great TV stations, terrific WiFi and you can wash your RV at your site. The park has two different rates: one for the river and one for the fountain sites that are pull through and back in. They have another site where you can wash your tow vehicle or truck, plus a special place to wash your pets too. Has two separete laundry facilities, swimming pool, spa, basketball court, putting green and other outdoor games. Trash is picked up each morning before 10 o'clock, just set it out by the street and they will pick it up. The clubhouse is huge with a beautiful fireplace and comfy leather chairs that would be nice in the winter time. This is a gated RV resort which we like since it makes your things more secure. It's also nice that they don't allow skateboards and generators. The office staff said they are going to build 2 more resorts, one in Avila near Pismo Beach and the other one by Clear Lake by Cloverdale. This way when you can stay at this resort on I-5 or stay at the resort by Clear Lake on your way from the Oregon or Northern California coast. The Avila resort will be terraced on a hill by the Port of Avila so everyone will get an ocean view. Can't wait until they are finished. They have a discount card you can purchase for 2 years or stay a week and pay for 6 days and get the 7th one free. Many, many restaurants close by plus a large grocery store right across the stree from the entrance. We will definitely stay here again. Super friendly office help and people who escort you to your space.

We have stayed here many times and love it. Very windy, more so than usual this year. Regulars said it was colder and more windy this year for some reason. Very clean sites. Laundry, restrooms and showers are immaculate. Wi-Fi kept disconnecting me from Internet Explorer for some reason. I would have given it a 10 if this didn't happen. Good space between sites and very quiet during the days and nights. Staff are very helpful and friendly. Will stay again.

Nice RV park right on the 101. Can be noisy but didn't bother us. Level spots with nice paved area with a picnic table. Office is closed from noon to 2 p.m. Our reservation was on the office door and we set up the trailer then went back at 2 p.m. to pay. Many good restaurants in this town and a great Farmers Market on Saturdays. We have stayed here several times and will do so again.

Great RV park right on 101. Many people who had stayed here before said they couldn't remember it being so windy. It was really windy, to the point you couldn't do anything outside. The laundry was great with a TV to watch as you did your wash. Nice continental breakfast and free newspaper during the week. Wonderful indoor spa (great since it was too cold outside). Very friendly people working here. I did have some trouble with Wi-Fi kicking me off Internet Explorer.Will definitely come back again.

Nice campground right on the Sacramento river. We only stayed here one night on our way to Oregon. It was warm here as was our trailer from the Valley heat stored in the trailer. Very friendly lady we dealt with. Would stay again. Easy on and off I-5 with a TA fuel station on the other side of the freeway. Overpass is on the same road as the campground and on and off ramps.

Campground is clean with full timers staying in the prime spots by the river. You will need a long sewer hose since the connection is at the rear of your site, in fact some sites used two sewer hoses connected. They have moved the entrance so you don't have to travel over a one lane bridge. Get off at exit 18, NOT 17, that will take you through town. Laundry is clean but uses tokens that you have to get at the office and the other end of the park, this is a real pain if you want to do laundry after office hours. Great Farmers Market in Gresham (next town), great produce and art on Saturday's.

This park is great for visiting Portland. So to bad it has such crabby hosts, they ruin it. We were traveling from another campground about an hour away and called to see when check in was since it was about to rain. We were informed check out was 11:00 but to come anyway since they could move us around. We got there at 10:50 and when I told the man at the desk that we were told to come, then he rudely said, "No, you have to come back at noon." I told him that a woman said they could move us around.."No" he says. I was ticked! My husband and I go back in and the creep is soooooooo nice to my husband, telling him he could park at Fred Meyer or Camping World down the road. When we return we both go in to register and again butter melts in his mouth. A couple of days later we drive down the street, in the campground, to visit some friends we had met from another town. Immediately the camp host walks from around his trailer, (Our friends are parked next to him) and asks us if we have read the rules. I said yes. He said, "Well see that sign it reads" fire line" and you can't park there." We told him we were only there for a minute and we would move. Not good enough. He said that the city police come in there and give $125 tickets for parking there. Truth be known he calls them. The next day our friends had a hydraulic jack leak fluid on the ground. "Sunshine", the host comes around the corner and tells him to "Clean it up." Our friend said he was going to get kitty litter to absorb it, when he went to the store. "Sunshine" tells him to put bleach on it until he cleans it up. Things are going o.k. for us until the day we are going to leave. They allow you to wash your rigs while your there. We had an empty space that had been vacant the entire time we were there. We washed our truck and pulled it into the empty site to dry it. "Sunshine" was about 10 sites from us picking up trash when he stops and walks down to us to tell us we have to move our truck, we can't park it there. My husband tells him we are only drying it there and we'll move it latter. He also tells him NO ONE can come in before noon anyway and it was 9:30 a.m. Between the crab in the office, who also has a sign in front of his rv stating "Retired USMC don't even think about parking here"!! We will never stay here again. Neither will our friends. I thought camp hosts were suppose to help you?

This park is fantastic. The park is one year old and already rated sixth best rv park in the U.S. The only reason they didn't get all 10's in Trailer Life is because the entrance to the "resort" is not completed, you have to go through the truck stop to get there. Be sure and get their players card at the casino, it will give you an extra 10% off the rate after Good Sam or AAA. It was so quiet at night you could hear hawks screeching. There is an indoor pool, spa and gym. The resort has a shuttle that picks you up at your space to go to the casino every 15 minutes. The food there was tasty and reasonably priced. The only problem we found is that you are in the middle of nowhere, (no large towns). Cayonville does have two grocery stores. The resort has the only gas station in town.

I don't know what the other camper who reviewed this campground was smokin. Ocean view? We're 3 hours inland.This campground is right on the highway with a lot of noise. Summers it gets in the 100 degree range. Would not recommend this park.

This is a great location. Fun to see the jets fly over for LAX. Can't figure out how one person said they paid $50. No way the highest the charge is is $32 in the summer time. We have stayed here twice now any really enjoy the view, bike path and beautiful sunsets.

Beautiful campground. Do go on the website to look at the map for sites. We have a 32 ft. 5 wheel and many of the sites are perfectly perpendicular into the site. Really hard to back in. The sites that are on the outside from #2 to #43 are easy to get in. Nice park to hike and bike ride to the 10 waterfalls. Good area to swim at the river for the kids. Plenty of hedges and green grass.The nearest small grocery store is 5 miles away. Nearest town is 10 miles. Be sure an check out the Oregon Garden about 10 miles from here. Beautiful botanical gardens with a tram ride. They have outdoor concerts too.

If you like camping on sand and dead grass this is for you. The pictures on the internet definitely were taken in a wet year. Close to the beach. Campsites are close together with little privacy. A million kids riding on all the narrow paved roads. I guess this would be a good campground if you had small kids since they would have plenty of new friends.The main roads are too narrow for 2 rv's to pass little lone the walking and bike traffic. We will not stay here again.

Great campground. The grass was a little toasty in spots. Large sites with plenty of room for slide outs. Each loop has several large pull throughs. Very large campground with good paved roads and paved sites. Not all sites have sewer hookups. TV is not very good. Even if you get a site that doesn't have shade it cools down at night. Nice place to ride a bike.

This campground has been sold to new owners who are just letting the place go. Grass is dead and trash was overflowing in the dumpser. Many people who have stayed here year after year said that the owners can't sell it for 5 years so they are just letting it go and probably will build condo's. Its a shame since this campground is so close to the ocean. You drive in and pick your spot then walk a couple of blocks to the motel office to tell them what site your in. We were here 3 days and the only people we saw that looked like employees were teenagers racing around in a golf cart. With a little water and care this would be an outstanding campground since you can walk to the ocean and close to town.

We have stayed at this RV Park many times. Very nice people and it is quieter than Pismo Coast Village (a zoo in the summer months). Not much to do for the little ones compared to other parks. They have a swimming pool and a jacuzzi. Nice laundry room on site. You have to drive to the beach or into Pismo (2 miles) to find good restaurants. There is a fresh produce stand within 1/2 mile from the park with the best strawberries.

This is a terrific campground right on the beach. The view from your site is breathtaking, you can see for miles. It has a 23 mile paved bike path that is broomed weekly. You are right under the LAX runway so you have to get use to the jet noise. Didn't bother us even at night. We were told it really fills up in the summer months. We stayed 6 nights in April, in a 29 ft. 5th. wheel with 3 slideouts and had plenty of room in our space for truck also. This is such a secret place it's hard to find any reviews on it, but it's great.
