Prior to choosing Boulder Creek RV Resort we read all the reviews and were impressed by the number of high marks given this park. For the most part the marks are spot on and indicate just how nice and how conveniently located this park is for those traveling the Hwy 395 corridor. It is easy to find and entry off the main road is also easy and convenient. There were no pull thrus available so we took a back in space which was fine by us. The space was narrow and lined with boulders on each side but we did have enough clearance. Unfortunately some low hanging Pine branches that we didn't notice did scratch the side of our full height coach and we had to have them trimmed to move any further. We were assigned another space which we had no problem getting into. The office gal did take pictures and when we got home I turned in an estimate to have the scratches buffed out and touched up. It took almost a month but we were sent a check to cover 2/3 of the cost to do this. We were very pleased that the owner did offer to pay this in lieu of the fact they do have a damage waiver we signed when checking in. This shows us the park does care about their customers and to having them return to enjoy this great area and their park. We didn't use the facilities but did buy some things at the neat and well stocked camp store. Even though this park is right on Hwy 395 it was very quiet at night. We had neighbors all around but nobody was noisy or out of line. It is a bit dusty as it is mostly gravel and dirt but the trees do make for some nice shade when the sun gets to doing its thing at 90 plus degrees. Overall we would definitely recommend this park and would stay here again. One can incur a paint scratch here and there in any park with trees and tight spaces but when it's handled as our situation was those scratches quickly become a distant memory. What you do remember is how nice the park was overall.
What a great little RV park! Right off Hwy 395 at Topaz Lake and adjacent to a lodge and casino. We reserved a pull-through site on the upper level and found it to be level and with a filtered view of the lake. Short walking distance to the casino where we enjoyed a very good breakfast. Steak and eggs for $5.95 and one of the best 6 ounce top sirloins I have ever eaten. Even though it is situated right next to Hwy 395 there is little to no road noise, so sleeping was restful and relaxed. Easy and convenient check-in at the general store right next to the park. We will most definitely make this one of our overnight stops next time we are traveling this route.
We called ahead to make our reservation for a one night stay. We had to call several times before someone answered the phone. We were told that they had been busy on another line making reservations. So when we pulled in we expected to see a fairly full park. Not so, there were about 6 RVs in the entire park, the place was like a morgue. Okay 'nuf of that, the park is nice but with a temp in Indio that day of 109 degrees and more to come in the days ahead, everything was brown and dried out due to the lack of water and severe drought. The staff of one was friendly enough and handled the registration, etc. quickly and efficiently. Our pull-through site was easy to find and we got hooked up in record time as I didn't want my brains fried out in that bake oven afternoon sun. No road noise that night, in fact it was dead silent other than the noise from our AC running on full all night long to keep us cool, so we slept very well. We would definitely use this park again next time we are in the Indio, however we will make sure it isn't during June, July or August due to the extreme heat.
This was a one-nighter for us and we picked it from the reviews we had read for the Needles area. An older retirement park with the majority of the sites being permanent residents. The site we were given was supposedly a view site, but the only view we had was of all the neighbors and a clubhouse directly across the road. Nice, helpful folks and we did have a good night's rest. Our space was a little tight for Class A but we managed and got hooked up with no problems, etc. The neighbors were friendly, also. One woman came by as we were hooking up and asked us if we were going to be staying a while and started telling us all about the various activities that go on in the park. When we told her we were just there for one night she seemed disappointed. Later we both said that perhaps they look forward to seeing new folks move in so they can find out lots of gossip to pass on about them, etc. Overall, we probably wouldn't stay there again as it is not our kind of park even tho we ourselves are seniors. Nothing against the park. It was fine for what we needed and would recommend it to anyone needing a clean and cozy spot for the night. We would have rated it higher had it not been so cramped feeling.
This was just an overnight stop for us on our way to the Tucson area. Nice park for the money and nice spot for an overnight stay. The folks who operate the park are friendly, and we were guided to our space by a guy who also came back with a large crescent wrench to remove the cap on the sewer inlet. It was stuck shut and ours was just not large enough. We did use the showers, which we rarely do, because our shower connection had broken inside on the road that day. They were clean and had good pressure. We could see the interstate from our space, but there was little to no noise to interrupt a great nights' sleep. Nice clubhouse and easy, quick access to the interstate. Will definitely stay here again when we pass thru next year.
Decided to give this one a try on our way north to Washington over Thanksgiving. Convenient, clean, great host who helped us park even though we didn't need help. Reasonably priced and convenient to get to and from the interstate. Only negative that there was considerable traffic noise, even though others have commented to the contrary. We were parked about mid park and the trees next to I-5 didn't do much to lessen the noise. Still, overall, for a one nighter this is a very nice park with nice facilities and management. Also, there is a nice little cafe plus a Subway shop within walking distance, and nice truck stop to fill up at if you need fuel. Would definitely stay here again when passing through this area.
We have passed this park many times on our way north and south on I-5 and this time decided to use it for an overnight stay. We were very pleased we did. The park is very well setup, is back off the interstate far enough and behind a hill to where there is no traffic noise whatsoever. What really surprised us is when we wanted to go across the interstate to the main casino, we were told to simply call the casino shuttle bus and they would come to our space and pick us up. We did, they did and we enjoyed a nice dinner there. When we were ready to return to our coach, we hailed one of the attendants outside the front entrance and he immediately called the shuttle to take us back, right to our space. The spaces are mostly all pull throughs and are wide and deep and nicely done. Level and clean with easy hookup facilities. We will definitely be staying here again the next time we are in the area and will plan our trips to coincide with making this one of our stopovers. Highly recommended, one of the nicest parks we've stayed in and we've stayed in some of the best. The price I listed is a close guess as my girlfriend paid for this one and I wasn't paying attention to the price.
I can't remember the nightly rate, but I believe it was in the mid $30 range if memory serves. We stayed at this park to attend a graduation at HSU and found it to be clean and with wide spacious sites. We arrived after the office was closed, but found an envelope in the laundry room with our reserved space and instructions, etc. A guy did come over and offer to help us park, but it was a pull thru space and I was able to get the job done all by myself. I am very talented it seems.....Ha! Very close to Hwy 101, but not all that much traffic noise so we slept well each night. There is a Target store right across the highway and it could be considered walking distance if you had on the right walking shoes. We stocked up on some grocery items, etc. Not much to do at the park itself, but we didn't stay there to be entertained. Shore power, sewer, water hookups, all worked fine, we had no problems. We would stay there again for certain if we were ever going thru Eureka and needed a place to drop anchor for the night. A tad windy due to being very near the inlet from the Pacific Ocean, but we had our hairspray so all was fine..........
As the old saying goes, "Any port in a storm". And that was what this park was for us. We hit some pretty nasty winds, so as we approached Quartzsite, we decided to let good sense overcome trying to find a nice park for the night and drove on into B-10. Not exactly the Ritz Carlton of RV parks, but it did have the necessities, and it gave us some protection from the gusting winds. Mostly dirt and gravel with few amenities, it was our port in the storm, and we were safe for the night. The owner/manager was friendly and helpful in telling us a good place a short walk away to eat as we wanted to get out of the coach and grilling outdoors was not going to happen with those winds. Noisy due to trains and the various other area noises (this is an RV hot spot for desert duelers, etc.), but we managed to get in a decent night's sleep before getting out of Dodge early in the morning. Doubt we'd be dropping anchor there again anytime soon, but at least it got us through the night. It was funny, on the way up Hwy 95 I had made the brash statement that no way was I going to stay in Quartzsite. The winds proved just how wrong I was.
We stayed here on our way home. Found this park in the Good Sam Book and called to make an overnight reservation. It is quite desolate, and it is 'out there' on its own, but we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The owners were very friendly and helpful. They are 'Harley Folk' so how bad can they be, right.....Ha! We could see forever from our assigned space. There were some desert folk with their off road vehicles and such, but the noise level was for the most part, unnoticeable. I think we heard a couple of train whistles during the night, but we slept so good due to the total peace and quiet we weren't bothered by them one bit. The owners are working on more and more improvements as they can, but as it is we will for sure return for another stay the next time we are in that area. If you are ever in the Tacna area and find yourself wanting a peaceful and restful place to throw out the anchor, this is definitely the one to go to.
We spent one night at this park and were not impressed. It was run down with dust and dirt everywhere, along with a large storage area for RVs and other assorted vehicles. Our 'pull-through' space was a pull through; however, had we tried to drive out we would have probably scraped the sides of our coach on trees and bushes. We barely got the slide out while parked. This park had just recently changed ownership, and it appears there are a lot of things that need to be changed and/or upgraded. We will not stay here again.
We decided to just get away for a couple of days and chose this park due to being within 100 miles of our home. We were impressed by how clean it was and how friendly and helpful the staff all were. We arrived without reservations and were able to get into an end space with a very nice view of the surrounding hills and scenery, etc. There are train tracks down below about a half mile away and trains do go thru the area during the daytime but they use their horns sparingly. At night there may have been one or two but we sure didn't hear them. Boomtown Casino is a short walk from the park where we did go for breakfast one morning. Also a Cabela's store is adjacent and within walking distance, along with a large and well stocked Chevron Minimart. A very nice well kept grassy area for pets and a park-like play area with swings, etc. for the children is located at one end. This park is quiet during the day and at night. There is a very small amount of noise from I-80 but nothing that kept us awake as it's far enough away to mute the truck noise a lot. Nice sunrises and sunsets. We ended up staying a extra day and will be going back again for sure when we want a few days away without a long drive. Check it out the next time you need a place to drop anchor for the evening or for a few days relaxation.........
We arrived at this park with another couple towing a fifth wheel. Our first impression upon crossing the entryway bridge over the creek was very good. The grounds were clean, and we found the staff to be pleasant and accommodating. We were guided to our respective reserved spaces by a helpful pilot. We had initially scheduled our arrival for two days earlier but due to a freak rain storm that came through the area we called to find out if we could possibly delay our arrival until after the rain was to stop. Our request was immediately granted, and our arrival date and departure was changed at no additional cost or loss of deposit, etc. Very clean and well kept park with long, wide spaces and lots of shade from the tall Ponderosa pines and other indigenous trees to the area. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be going back again. We would have given it a 10 rating but for one small thing that did bother us. It is not a big thing but there is a charge to use the park showers, and we feel that in a park of this stature, this one little thing bugged us. We rarely use park showers but in this instance our water heater went out the first day there, hence the reason we bring this up. Please don't let that stop you from trying this park out if and when you are in the Graeagle, CA area. You will not be disappointed. Oh, and one more thing. Sleeping was incredible due to the absolute quiet and darkness. No bright campsite light posts or other bright lights coming through the shades.
We had called ahead to book a space at this supposed RV and Golf 'Resort'. When we arrived we were greeted by three very friendly staff members and what appeared to be a very nice park from first entering the premises. That all came to an end as soon as we got to our space. We were parked facing right at a row of stucco cabins that were mostly filled with working folks living there and coming and going at all hours of the night. The space felt like we were sitting in the middle of a WalMart parking lot. Noisy and not very clean but with a few improvements this park could be a lot nicer. However it doesn't appear this will be happening anytime soon. When traveling in an RV we find we win some and we lose a few and this is one of the losers for us..........
We have stayed at this park several times since September of 2012. We use it exclusively when we travel south from our northern California location. This is a clean, well laid out park with nice wide pull through spaces. Nicely landscaped with all the amenities befitting a park of this type. The on grounds Crest Bar & Grill restaurant has good food and drink and a friendly staff. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner is served daily. The store has a good selection of most all needed items as well as souvenirs, etc. As mentioned prior, we use this park as our stopping off point on all our southbound trips as it is the best there is in Bakersfield. We can say that because we've checked out the others and none of them can hold a candle to this one. Highly recommended.
This is one of the best RV parks we have stayed at. We made our reservations about a month before arrival and got one of the riverfront spaces. It was wide with a cement pad, lots of trees and was very private on both sides. Right in front of us was the Sacramento River which we enjoyed in the morning with coffee and in the evening with a glass of wine. We have made reservations to go back again in mid September and are looking forward to it. We have reserved another space up on the cul du sac end of the park just to have a different view but would stay again in the space we did this time, without hesitation. Friendly staff, nice clean grounds, easy to drive around and through. About the only negative was that there really isn't a store of any significance on sight. The office does have a few 'necessities' if needed, however. If you want a relaxing stay with very little interstate noise, and right on the river, we highly recommend this one.
