This is an exceptionally fine RV park, where the sites are very well laid out with more than generous areas for yourself. We prefer the back-in sites over the pull-throughs because they offer more area and privacy. There is a mixture of shaded and sunny sites; we got one of the sunnier sites, which is our preference. The washrooms are very clean. The showers are pay per use (but we didn't use them). The interior roads are nicely paved and can accommodate any size RV. The sites are mostly gravel with a fire-ring and usable picnic table. The road leading into the park off of US 12 is long (3.9 miles) and narrow but not really an issue. There is a sign posted just off the highway stating use this road at your own risk - don't worry about it. It is manageable. The result is worth it. The only knock on this park is the mosquitoes. If you don't have repellent or a fan or, better, both you will be eaten alive (at least during this part of the year - September).

Overall, a very nice RV park and better beach. The rating depends very much on the site you stay at. We stayed in site 31, which was somewhat overgrown with trees and shrubs that very much limited the amount of sunlight that gets through resulting in a constantly damp and muddy area. The overgrown trees offered great privacy but a made it difficult to position your rig in just right to get your slides out. It took a bit of maneuvering but we managed with one side sitting partially on the grass. There are other much more open sites and had we stayed in one of those then the rating would have been 10/10. The washrooms are older, dated, but relatively clean for a state park. The beach is the thing we will definitely come back for (at a different site). We had full power, water, and sewer. The sites closer to the water and beach do not have sewer.

The park is very well laid out, accommodating for the largest rigs. We stayed at one of the premium sites which backed into the Skagit River. There is no direct river access, as there is a border or trees and shrubs in between. These premium sites are only 30 amps. No sites have sewer but there is a dump station which even registered guests must pay $5 to use. There is ample grass space between sites for your party to spread out and enjoy. The roads are on the narrow side - we had to drive over grass to park our 5th wheel - but not a problem to be concerned about for getting around the park itself. The dump station is near the entrance but poorly laid out because there is no way to make a U-turn back to your site if there are any vehicles in the day-use parking area. The dump station was probably an afterthought. The lack of sewer and poor dump station layout was the reason for only a 9 out of 10 otherwise very nice park. Highly recommended.

Sites vary in size but the largest ones can easily accommodate the large rigs and boats. The sites are hard packed gravel, fairly level, with excellent quality picnic tables and fire rings. There are no RV facilities at the sites (power, water, sewer) but they do have a number of potable water taps throughout the park and 1 sani station that you can use for $5 (free Sani-station at the Canadian Tire in town about 10 minutes away). There are no shower facilities so for the tenters take note. The washrooms are typical park washrooms. It does get very dusty which gets into everything. The wind really picks up at night so bring those awnings in. All in all, a very good provincial park with spacious RV sites. Easy access to a sandy beach and large playing field. Would come back again if in the area.

Sites are spacious, fairly level, and lots of shade (maybe too much in some sites). We stayed at one of the pull-throughs. We had plenty of room for our fifth wheel and tow truck. The sites are hard packed dirt and gravel mix with plenty of grass. No Wi-Fi at the sites, no cable, and no TV reception. Only Wi-Fi available at the store for free. Very pet friendly. We stayed by a large open grass area where they said we can run the dogs unleashed because it wasn't too busy yet. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. If you have kids, great play area for them. Highly recommended whether or not you have kids or dogs.

There are two campsites North and South. We stayed at the North park and glad we did. It has bigger sites with a lot more green space between them. We stayed in a large site with more than enough room for our large RV. All sites are gravel and somewhat level (bring some boards). There are only 2 showers for the whole park so we used our own. There was a boil water advisory when we there. Our site was close to the highway so there was some noise during the day but was very quiet at night. Would stay here again.

Clean, well maintained, big-rig friendly, and super friendly staff sums it all up. This place has everything you want for a short or long stay. The WiFi was sometimes slow but works well enough if you need to Google something. This park is located beside their casino (actually on the other side of the freeway) and they offer free shuttle service if you want to leave behind some cash. The park itself is quiet, the grounds are immaculate, and the sites offer enough green space between each other so you're not on top of one another. You definitely get good value for your money. We did eat at the casino one night but I would not rave about the food.

Camped here on the way down and on the way back to/from Palm Springs. The rate down was $40, the rate back was $50. At that price point, unless you take advantage of 'complimentary' golf, staying here may be questionable. The park itself is very nice, clean washrooms and showers, large private sites, and decent WiFi. They have a nice dog run at one end of the park but there is also ample green space just outside the park for Fido. Easy access to the highway, gas stations, and the small town of Chowchilla. This is definitely the better park in the area. Take advantage of their golf special if possible.

Nice level gravel sites with plenty of green space. This park is very big rig friendly. It has no official dog run but dog friendly as long as you clean up after them. The washrooms are older but clean when we visited them. Mind you there were very few campers when we were there. Easy access to the highway. The one issue with this park is the train tracks right beside the park. It seems like the trains like to whistle just as they go by the park even though the tracks are fenced off and no road crossings nearby. Try to pick a site closer to the highway (I-5) to avoid excessive train noise.

The park itself is rated a 10+ for its cleanliness, ease of access, friendly staff and workers, and facilities. This is a huge park with over 1200 sites all of which are privately owned (I think) and rented out through a central booking company or privately. You can rent a site by the course par 3 golf course and lake (more expensive). All the sites are cement (or brick) pads and very level. Water pressure is about 90 lbs so you need definitely need a regulator. It has 1 large main pool and many smaller satellite pools. Cable and Wifi were excellent. The one big disappointment is the so-called dog run which is actually four 10x10 pens made of artificial turf located at one end of the park behind the dumpsters. We were fortunate enough to have a site that was within walking distance to it so it made for a pleasant walk but had we been at the opposite end of the park it would have been at least a 20 minute walk. Everyone at this park had golf carts so they would drive Fido to the pens but we didn't have that luxury. There was no shortage of green space in the park but they were absolutely off limits for Fido. I would definitely stay here again and allocate more time to take Fido to the close-by city off leash park.
