While we really like this park’s people, staff and locale, I.e. beaches, dunes, restaurants, etc., we are losing patience with the lack of care the owners seem to take in the facility. While the staff is very helpful and seem focused on performing their tasks well, it appears whomever controls the budget doesn’t want to invest in a little TLC – pull weeds around horse shoe pits, repaint the laundry/bathrooms, ensure washers/dryers function properly, put "solid" doors on showers stalls, etc. Day rate calculated with Coast To Coast discount.
This was just an overnight/in-out stay, our first time at this park. The office staff was very helpful and even switched our site when it became clear that, with our overall length, the original one assigned wouldn’t work as a pull-thru. As an older park the sites are narrow (designed for the old shorter rigs with no slide outs). A lot of the sites have obstacles (trees, light poles) at the entrance to the site. That was what happened to us. There is a long dog run that is well maintained. Day rate calculated with Good Sam discount.
Beautiful park 17 miles from civilization. This was off season so it was quiet with little golf cart traffic but still many activities. There are few trees to shade the sites during extreme temperatures (like the 100’s we experienced - not the usual for May). There are 2 off-leash dog parks. The one we used was well maintained and provided a lot of space for multiple dogs to run and play. The laundry room was neat, clean and cheap ($1 for each washer/dryer). In addition to the day rate, we paid $4 per day for electricity. That seems very high considering that over the past 6 years of full-timing across America, the highest daily rates we ever paid were $2.63 (Wisconsin) and $2.29 (California). The full-time residents are metered but visitors are bilked. Day rate calculated with SKP discount.
Again, we enjoyed the park and facilities. They were finally replacing the Sycamore bathroom (loss to a fire a couple of years ago). But they still do not have a dog run for all of the dogs staying in the park. We are at this park often and can’t understand why they don’t enforce rules – children (even as young as 5) driving electric vehicles (scooters, motorbikes, golf carts) on the interior road, dogs not on leash, and loud parties into wee hours. (It would also be great to have them do work on sites that are left with LARGE puddles of standing water after rainstorms.)
They have made positive changes in the power grid. You need to look for new power poles in the site to be sure you have good clean electricity but this is an improvement. They are selling spacious sites with views of the surrounding landscape for full-time living.
We like so many things about this park - nice staff, friendly campers, long term sites are clean/neat, great views, near to beaches/dunes, restaurants, etc. etc. etc. We just wish they would apply some basic TLC. You know - paint bath/laundry rooms, ensure washer/dryers work properly, install solid doors for shower enclosures, etc. We will probably continue to go but it would be great to see some improvements.
This is a great small park! There is a family atmosphere for all residents, the few full-timers and those only up in the mountains for parts of the summer. The owners have continued to update and upgrade. There are a number of groups that return year after year. Weather has been varied, during May/June we have experienced both snow and extreme heat – so pack accordingly. Right outside the park is a large treed area that is just great for running your pets. Day rate calculated from monthly fee.
In just the one year since our last stay, the park is showing wear and lack of TLC. The previously praised bathrooms are now dirty, shabby and have broken fixtures. It still works for overnights when traveling Interstate 5 through California. Day rate calculated with Good Sam discount.
Good location on north side of Reno, with casino access across the parking lot. All spaces are wide enough for rig and towing vehicle to park. Front spaces have better landscaping but rear spots have closer access to fenced dog runs. Only complaint is stay limitations. During season (May through October) you can’t stay longer than 2 weeks even if you pay the weekly rate. During off-season, you can stay continuously at the monthly rate. While understanding the rate differences, we disagree with the stay limits. If we had reservations and paid the higher fee, why couldn’t we stay longer than 2 weeks? Yes, they can charge the highest (the daily) rate on week-ends when they are almost full, but more than 50% of sites sit empty during the week. Day rate calculated from weekly fee.
Very narrow sites, almost like a parking lot. Showers require tokens (not quarters), but office fails to mention that when you check in. OK, for an overnight (water and 30 amp electric only), but a Wal-Mart parking lot or the Paiute Casino provides more space and is cheaper.
Strange layout; if the park had been full we are not sure we could have executed the move they suggested; space numbers on the payment but very faded. If you are coming from the South off I-15, you might want to get fuel at that intersection’s truck stop instead of waiting until you are in Adelanto. This park worked very well for an overnight.
Still does not enforce “pets on leash” rule consistently; lots of large dogs off leash, even dogs that charge other dogs walking in the roadways. Sites are on the whole very large in the newer sections (Sycamore, Willow, and Oak). There are lots of trees but you are able to get satellite access if you’re careful about rig placement. There are very few “street” lights throughout the park area so it can get very dark at night. During winter, heavy rains can create large puddles on sites.
The park is right off Interstate 5 with nearby restaurants and fast food: a true oasis. The interior road ways were asphalt but the very narrow RV site surface was a mix of concrete and gravel. The sites were level. The bathrooms are the best we have seen: unisex, self-contained bath room like at home with sink, toilet, and shower in one lockable room. There were surfaces to sit on both in and outside the shower enclosure.
This is the first time we have stayed here during “season.” It was full most week-ends with busy families. There is lots of room on the dunes for both people and dogs. The sites vary as to width and level. Bathroom, showers and laundry facilities are available at strategic spots in the park. The laundry rooms are small only 2 units (washers/dryers). In the upper facility, both dryers were out of order and it took weeks for them to fix them. Things are clean but the park really needs some loving attention to upgrading/painting/repairing items: dryers, landscaping, club house area, etc., etc., etc. The toilet/shower stalls do not always have solid lockable doors. The office hours for summertime are limited to 9 am – 5pm.
There are lots of trees but narrow sites. RVs are paired within spaces but in opposite directions. It is close to town. A mix of permanent/summer-home park models between conventional RVs. Gracious office staff, very helpful.
The new owners (bought the park last summer) have already made some much needed improvements. The lanes in the park were rutted from the various beautiful trees’ roots pushing up the asphalt. Just before we got here, they had done major work on the very worst spots both in sites and the lanes between sites. Another plus, they provide menus from local eateries in the Club House. Both of these improvements are reflected in our higher rating from last time.
This is a small park with long but narrow unlevel sites with picnic tables. There are a lot of full-time permanent sites that are a bit untidy. Only stayed overnight and it worked well for that. Fast food is close by as well as a golf course.
Under new management, they are working to fix some broken/closed functions (laundry, pool, toilets in back section, etc.). There was no price break on the rate while work goes on. This is a plain KOA with lots of trees and narrow un-level sites. No picnic tables that we could see in our section. Since our site was very narrow I don’t know where they would put one anyway. During the week, the office is open 8-10am and 5-7pm so plan arrivals accordingly.
This is a small park with constant oversight by the owners or at least Pop. They have a very small dog walk area but it worked for our dog. The spaces are level pavement for the rig and gravel for the picnic table area. As an aside, Pop has built/carved a large model railroad, associated buildings and people in the front yard of the Office.
There are 2 distinctly different sections in this park. The front section has some minor landscaping and paved spaces for the rig, truck and lounging around your site. The back section is mostly gravel with little to no amenities on the sites. In the back section, the site for the rig is paved and there is little space to sit outside your rig. The real plus to this RV Park is the proximity to the hotel/casino complex for visiting family or losing money hand over fist. Office staff are very helpful and professional.
We have been here before and appreciate the availability of long pull-throughs. While the fenced dog walk is small it has enough smells for the dog to stay busy checking it out. The convenience of the park is really great – right off I-80.
The sites were narrow, but fairly level. There is a lot of “red” dust everywhere but the sites do have a gravel base with a grassy picnic area. There are picnic tables. While they do not have a fenced dog area, you can take your dog into the open area just to the end of the park for good runs.
This is a large quiet park with ample space in the roadways and RV sites. One convenience is that Camping World is right next door. Office staff is very helpful. The park is about 12 miles west of central Albuquerque, on the frontage road for Interstate 40 which makes it pretty quick to get anywhere in the city.
Arrived before the afternoon office hours and had some challenges figuring out where/how to pull-through for the night. Neighbors next to the 2 open spots offered strange directions (somewhat insistently) as to how we should park our 2 slide rig. We did it their way but are still confused as to the whole point. Either direction one way on the right or one way (the opposite) on the left - took up the same exact amount of space. Be VERY careful in the showers as the faucets are hooked up in reverse. Hot is on the right and cold is on the left but at least they are still turned on correctly.
This is a very large park (300+ sites) with nice wide, long spaces up front (with pleasant grassy areas and shelters for picnic table, etc). The back area sites (where we were assigned) were much narrower and “scraggly” looking – not an area that facilitates outdoor use by RVers. Our month here could have been much more enjoyable in the nicer section. Unfortunately, you have no choice about the section you will be in. There are a surprising number of forms to complete, initial and sign on lots of paper and pages of rules; which didn’t seem to be enforced with respect to speed limits, barking dogs, etc. etc. etc. The pages and pages of rules seem to only apply to the short-term RV residents. The long term RVs, mobile homes, and park models don’t seem to need to be compliant. Dogs are tied out with no supervision at a number of sites. One site even has 4 dogs penned outside. Needless to say there is a lot of unrestrained barking (and howling) both day and night. The one bright spot is the large dog run which contains a number of pieces of agility equipment (dog walk, A-frame, weave poles, tunnel and teeter-totter). As far as their claim “This is Texas RV Camping at its best!” it is a bit more advertising hype then reality. We would not return unless we were given the option of being in the front area of the park.
This a park beyond its prime. After calling ahead about matching the limit of their sites with the length of our 47’ rig, we were disappointed by the direction to look around the park and pick any site that would work. So, we did go up and down the lanes and finally pulled into what we thought would work. While we did stick out a bit on both ends, that seems to be common considering the other rigs in the park. We wouldn’t stop here for anything more than an overnight rest while on the way to somewhere else.
We arrived at 2ish and the park was already filling up. It is a small but very well-maintained park. The exterior U-shape is for back-ins. They have a long center row for pull-through. The lane is very wide. Sites are well designed for ease of parking. It is located on the eastern edge of Roswell and convenient to downtown. Shower faucets turn on/off the reverse way (lefty on right off). As we left the park heading west toward 285, were able to park our rig in the lot at Cowboy Cafe and have a nice breakfast.
This is a very new park (2008), so the vegetation still needs time to cover all spaces between paved sites and the sites have no numbering. The owner/manager lives on site and is very helpful/pleasant to work with. Park is about halfway between Corpus Christi and Rockport. Nice laundry and shower facilities. While there is no dog run/park within the park, there is a deserted road right outside the south side of the park for the dog to run free. There were lots of well behaved dogs in the camp. Also, probably 60% of the park is permanent residents (workers in the area). The street to the RV Park is rough and narrow with tanker trucks coming and going at all hours. The good news is that the RV park is only a short distance down this road.
We had reservations for a particular site, which was not available when we arrived. Fortunately our ‘new’ site was acceptable but this could have been viewed as a customer service shortcoming. This is a medium sized park out away from the “world”. The spaces are large and paved. The park was quite full when we were there. They do keep the grounds up very well and they mow a large open field that can be used for off-leash dog play, etc. An alternate path to the park is off Texas 146 South, take Route FM 517 (right) West to Bowerman Road to Avenue U to San Leon and then straight into the park! Because of location, a local map would be very helpful to non-Texans.
This is a small but nice and clean RV park that is situated behind the Inn Suites. The lanes and sites are paved. The sites are level and even front to back and left to right. This seems to be a workers campground though the more permanent sites are neat and not trashy.
Medium sized park near Baton Rouge and LSU. Flat and level space but they are a bit narrow. The dog run while on the smaller size has a few agility obstacles for the dogs to try. The park is very dog friendly with treats upon check-in and whenever the dog meets a golf cart. The park looks like they have a lot of week-end setups.
Large RV Park with strong presence of “Snow Birds” come January. Lucky for us, it’s a quiet season in October (except for 2 Halloween week-end events). Lots of pull throughs with long, level and sometimes paved sites. All sites have paved patio areas. While the office help is efficient they are prone to NOT volunteer information. After our arrival and reading the park flyer, we had questions about visitor parking, internet access, and propane. If you don’t ask all of the questions you will need to return/re-call a number of times. They seem to be willing to only answer what is asked of them and not offer any other information that might be helpful to the questioner. As long as you don’t have to deal with the office, the other staff members are friendly and personable. They have a large pool area with water slides, spray circles, and a canal surrounding the main pool with inner tubes for riding around. Another unique benefit is that they pick up garbage (that you bag and leave at the end of your site) daily by 10am. Unfortunately, they do not have any recycling options within the park. There is a small fenced area for dogs. Our dog was able to chase her Frisbee in the space. Even with that space, the park staff as a whole weren’t really into dogs. Our dog thinks all golf carts have treats since her first exposure proved that out. In fact, the golf cart drivers are not dog-friendly at all.
The RV Park is on Tranquility Base within the Space and Rocket Center. For all you space enthusiast out there, this is the place. The park’s interior roads are smooth but the sites are a bit rough. Even so, it was easier to level (front to back and side to side) than in some of the nicer parks at which we have been camped. Treed but didn’t keep us from getting satellite reception. It looks like there are a number of permanent residents at the park.
This is just a flat field with a few sites right off Interstate 65. No amenities. It is great for an overnight – which our stay was. The sites were level and long. There are a number of what looked like FEMA trailers / barracks. We think we might have been the only transient at the park that night.
Sites were very neat, wide and very level/even. The park is a little outside of Paducah’s downtown. While near the highway it wasn’t really that noisy for us. There is a nice medium size dog park at the back of the park with a gazebo for the owners.
This is another small RV Park (our favorite type) just north of Champaign and very close to the University of Illinois campus. If you are planning a Fall visit, you need to check the Illini Football schedule as on home game week-ends they are full. Sites were very level/even front to back and across the site. The path around the man-made lake makes for a great dog walk.
A nice little park in the middle of an Illinois corn field. There are trees, a pond, playground, tent sites and about 24 pull-through RV sites. The entrance and sites are gravel – not all are level front to back and across. To exit, you pull through your site onto the grass field around the back of other sites to the gravel road out. That is the only drawback for us because it RAINED and RAINED the 3 days before we left. That made the field very soggy. We and the owner determined that to drive across the field was not the best route out. Luckily, we had an empty site directly across and behind our rig. The owners’ staff assisted us with our exit so that any damage to the grass was minimal. Proximity to the location for the movie: Groundhog Day, Woodstock’s town square and environs, was a plus, as well.
Again, it’s hot and we got a little shade in the pull-through site. The biggest plus was the labeling on the “power” tower. Each switch was clearly identified as to which plug it controlled. Never have seen this very nice detail at any park before! Overnight stop so did not use any of the facilities.
This is a state park. The grounds are well cared for but recently they have had problems with the plumbing. We understood that the re-opened park has a temporarily sewerage solution so it might fail again. The sites on the Illinois River are really great: most are quite large. There are lots of trees but, if you are careful, you can still get satellite access. There is only electric for hook-ups. There are water spigots that can be used communally, if you’re close enough or have enough hose. We weren’t, but it was not a problem. The showers and restrooms were acceptable for daytime use. The lights are on a very short-cycled timer, which was a bit disconcerting, after dark. It can get a bit busy on week-ends. They were kept clean. There is also playground equipment and a snack bar with ice cream!
This is a small park (18 sites) with limited amenities but it’s right on the West Twin River, which is very nice. Park is kept neat and clean. Cool breezes off the river help to offset the summer temperatures. Everything is really close including Lake Michigan and Manitowoc (larger city to the South).
This is a resort destination RV Park for families. There is no way to get out of the facility charge which of course adds to the daily rate. There are no discounts for Passport or Good Sam memberships. The basic sites are not worth the rate – narrow and not level. So if you want the pool, mini-golf, etc, etc, etc, - OK but for an overnight it is way overpriced!
We were here back in ’09 and it was not very busy. This trip almost all sites filled. Not all sites have picnic tables. Sites were narrow pads and not especially level. Lake Delton / Wisconsin Dells huge tourist attraction with lots of people. Take care driving through the town areas.
Our assigned site was uneven site (left to right); so, we requested the neighboring site and were allowed to take that one. There are choices of sites with trees or not. Since we really like to get satellite access we opted for the open sites. While it was not important to us, they do accommodate Mayo Clinic patient’s needs with respect to late departures, etc.
City RV park on the West end of Worthington on a lake. A lot of huge trees that provided a wonderful canopy without blocking the sites or interior roads. Was raining when we got here and most of the night. That added muddy and dirty pathways but cooled down the temperatures. Overnight stop so did not use any of the facilities.
Very close to Rapid City. Note Interstate 90 Exit 51 has closed and Exit 52 is opened. So, coming from the West you can see the park way before the exit. The sites are a little off level left to right but great front to back. Laundry room was very clean (4 washers $2/4 dryers $1.50). Price was Passport America for a 50 amp, pull-through.
Small park with new owners who aren’t on site full-time yet. But they were responsive to calls. Not a lot of shade options in very high temperatures. The interior road was rough. Pull-through site was long and wide enough for our uses. Be sure to visit the excellent local museum, which includes Mac’s Museum. Mac’s has collection of 20,000 seashells.
Rustic is probably an exaggeration! The lack of customer service and abundance of cat urine smells in the office are a real turn off. The sites are really only good for overnights. Can’t imagine anyone wanting to stay here any longer if they have a choice. Note: we were in the electric only sites along the back building.
This is one of the best parks. Has raised gravel pads with grass and picnic tables between sites. Almost all of their sites are pull-throughs. They know how to place you for good satellite connectivity. Wi-Fi is free and strong. And best of all, they take you to your site and ensure you have everything you need and are set into your space straight. We both really liked these owners: very involved in the park and not intrusive!
Great park: easily accessible, paved interior roads, raised gravel pads, trees throughout. Lucky for us we were on one of the outer edges and were able to get satellite. Pull-through spaces are long and wide with picnic tables.
DUSTY dirt interior roads; lots of other dogs in campsites: not all leashed or managed. Park has well maintained grounds though the desert conditions make that very difficult. Had great big trees that blocked our satellite but were great in breaking the heat. Section we were in had rigs put in sites that were barely long enough, leaving little room to park toads and tow vehicles. On weekends, it was bumper to bumper parallel parking in roadway. We were backed to within 10 ft of children’s swing set and the site to our left was angled so that the 2 A’s that used that site backed up to our door. This section (at back of park) certainly does not deserve the “resort” designation. I’m sure we would rate it differently had we been in another section. It seemed that this section was for ROD reservations.
Lots of permanent RVs; spaces wide but short; road ways are wide; and lots of nice landscaping. The big drawback for us was no satellite access. Problem: we were left with globules of resin on truck and on RV roof – not pleasant to deal with.
Very nice large park, roadways smooth and wide, multiple laundries, spaces are a bit narrow/short for the 5th wheel/long bed truck but workable for the amenities. A bit outside of Portland downtown but good access to TriMet options.
There are “new” owners. The “old” owners are working with the “new” owners in an awesome transparent transition. The support staff remains the same along with the rules/regulations and ambiance of the park. We were amazed at how easy it was to work with the “new” owners. There are no apparent differences between the “old” and “new”. The park is great! The landscaping/grounds is kept very neat and clean. Each paved space is swept after a guest leaves. The associated lawn/gravel is mowed or raked. This added attention really makes this a “deal”.
We like the location of this park. It is close to the medical facilities we need, shopping, dining, movie theatre, other casinos, etc. The staff is very helpful and friendly. While the front section has landscaped concrete pads, we usually stay in the back because it provides guaranteed satellite access and is closer to the fenced off-leash dog run. The back section has some concrete 50-amp pull-through pads but is mostly gravel 30-amp pull-through or back-in.
The direct interior access road to sections N, P, and Q was washed out so we needed to check-in then exit the park and go back to another entrance up on the hill on the back side of section N. Electricity seems to have been resolved within section N since our visit back in October 2010.
We were here for a short visit last summer. We came back to finish checking out the area. They put us in the very same space as we’d had the previous year. Kind of nice! They have a lot of long term visitors throughout the park (100+ sites) and only a few (about 10) open for short term use. There were 2 sites in our section that really are just parking spots. They seem to hold these for 1-night pull-throughs.
Sites are wide open with nice grass between them. The sites are a little off level but the little gravel in the grass keeps any mud at bay. We arrived around 3:30-4pm and had a choice of 4 pull-through sites. The Camp Host offered free tickets to the museum. Unfortunately we were only stopping over night so couldn’t use them.
While it looks a bit “too” rustic, our drive-through site was level, power was clean, and our Verizon reception for the phones and “air” card was great. Best of all, we were able to get Direct TV via our rear roof mounted dish which isn’t always possible in some of the more expensive sites we have been.
A small laundry room (3 washers and 4 dryers) with no rods for hanging clothes or folding space. While I was there 3 washers were running at the same time and the sewer drain overflowed. The front section sites are on a bit of a downhill slant but nothing that can’t be accommodated by 5th wheels. This park is very centrally located for shopping, movie theaters, dining, etc.
Large laundry room but dryers were very inefficient in term of number of times (90 minutes on hot) needed to dry towels and jeans. While San Juan Bautista is a quaint little town, Gilroy (8 miles north of the campground on 101) is a larger city for more grocery, dining, movie options, and the lovely smell of garlic being processed.
There are multiple laundry rooms (2 washers and 2 dryers) throughout the park but they are small and do not have rods for hanging clothes and small space for folding. The sites on the top of the hill have a bit of a upward slant that challenges the leveling process. The sunset views across the dunes is really beautiful from the comfort of the rig (i.e., no winds whipping you back and forth).
There are narrow/bumpy interior roads and narrow sites between very tall pine trees. In some cases there is parking at the sides of your site but if your rig is long you may have to use the extra parking spots at the front/back of the park. The park is right next to the State Fair grounds, a neighborhood park, public swimming pool (in season), and a skateboard park. A convenience store/service station is within walking distance. Otherwise, it’s a residental area. The rv park has coin-operated showers. I expect showers to be provided as a part of the site fee. Watch for free roaming cat that has no fear of dogs. In fact, it will state its case in no uncertain terms to the dog’s detriment.
Nice paved roads with a number of distinctly different areas: water spray section, lake fishing, pool/hot tub, playgrounds, biking paths, etc. While there is a dog walk area, there is no fenced section for the multitude of dog visitors. Some sites are flooded if there are heavy rains. The East side of “Willow” is mostly noisy week-end campers. We thought it was a little pricey if you aren’t using all of the facilities. There are outstanding friendly and customer focused office staff, rangers and camp hosts throughout the park.
We have camped here often in section N (up on the hill) with good satellite and cell phone access. The campground is upgrading the electrical connectivity as some sites no longer provide reliable electricity and have been known to damage rig’s internal appliances. So, follow the instructions that the camp ranger provides to ensure your electricity is good.
Very nice and roomy sites but without sewers. Borders a golf course, so you can watch the players progress from hole to hole. Situated on the south side of Bishop several miles from downtown. Our truck was in the shop and we were glad to find that Bishop has a “Call a Ride” service that can pick you up and get you to wherever you want to go for a very small fee.
This is basically a large grass covered lot with no hook-ups/facilities except the casino in walking distance. We were the only ones here at the time and found the sites level and easily to pull-through. Some are more shaded than others but all seem to have easy satellite access.
While the sites are a bit narrow, there is nice landscaping between the rigs. Leveling can be a challenge in some of the sites. The off-leash fenced dog run is a good size and located on the east side of the park. The management staff is very helpful and informative with respect to the wind conditions on CA route 395, which is the primary road into/out of Minden.
This park is very centrally located for both Reno and Sparks activities. While the front park has more landscaping, the back section is usually less crowded and closer to the fenced off-leash dog run. Most sites are pull-through with rough rock patio area. The sites provide ample space between the rigs and are level.
This is a huge park at the edge of Reno and Sparks. There is lots of variety between 30 and 50 amps, pull-throughs and back-ins. The hotel security patrols often and all day/night long. A shuttle can be called from the Casino to take you from your site to the gaming tables/slots. The office staff is very helpful and responsive. In the laundry, if you are using the washers that face the dryers be sure to check the water temperature as the cold and hot pipes were reversed when we were here. The office was told and was going to correct the problem, but verify.
Whew, this is situated down a long long paved road from the highway. The park is in development situated on a hill top with associated winds. Lots of pull-throughs that are relatively level. The park was hot and dusty with no shade or relief.
The parking lot RV spots are plentiful and easy to get in and out of. Get there early if hot weather makes you want a shady spot. There are a few shady spots but early arrivals take them first. The Casino buffet was not worth the cost in our opinion.
Great park, had lots of pull-through sites that are flat and wide. This park is situated in the center of busy retail centers. Grocery stores, restaurants, etc. are within easy walking distance. The local hospital is less than a mile away. We needed to leave early due to medical issues and the staff was very helpful in getting our mail re-directed to our next location.
Signs directing us to the office “below” was a bit confusing. There is a section at the entrance that appears to ‘owned sites’ and then a roadway down the hill to the rental area; hence the “below” directions. Sites are flat and wide but all back-in. The wide lanes were helpful for the backing process. Laundry room has 5 washers and 4 dryers. The dryers have 2 different drying timers. Same costs but one only does it in half hour cycles the other in 1 hour cycles.
The park borders the coast. Access is at the West end of the park. The walk across the dunes to the shore line has a slight rise and fall but nothing like further south on the coast line. The sites were very narrow with barely enough room for the provided picnic table between the rigs/slide outs.
The interior lanes and sites were gravel/dirt but between the sites were wide mounded grassy areas. The roadway directions were confusing with only 1 lane that allowed both directions. The biggest problem was the wild rabbits that roamed the sites defecating as the urge came. There were signs and directives NOT to feed the bunnies but camping children just couldn’t resist and no one seemed to follow through on the rules. The office seemed a little 'cliquey' and weren’t really attentive to incoming mail. We needed to contact our mail forwarder to verify our mail was sent, in order to get the office to really search for our mail, which was here the whole time. Small laundry room with only 2 washers/dryers but lucky for us no competition when we needed the facility.
This is a small RV Park right in the middle of town-really within walking distance to almost everything. The smallness of the park is offset by its location. The owner is resident in the park and works very hard on the upkeep. The grass pads and associated vegetation are well cared for. His attention to detail is very evident in the cleanliness and neatness of the whole park. He was very responsive to any of our questions or concerns. One very strong plus to the park has to do with the movable potted plants/scrubs. In some parks, the edge of each space is marked with live trees, usually very large and of course unmovable. With the use of the potted plants, the spaces are widened for backing into position or leaving the site. When parked in the site the pots are moved back into position. The narrow spaces do eliminate the use of the awnings. Be prepared to park your vehicle next to and very close to your rig as the space between your rig and the slide outs on your neighbor may be tight.
The park is neat and clean but the "waterfront" designation for sites is not exactly accurate. We had a pull-through with "waterfront" view. But with a 5th wheel, the section of the rig facing the water was the cap (no windows). While we could see the water there was no way to get close to it. I think a few (or a lot) years ago it might have been accessible but not now. The extra charge really wasn't worth it. Having the Casino nearby is always a plus.
Arrived to find cardboard sign saying campground was closed for the duration of our reservation due to upcoming rodeo/carnival. Camp host went to office and resolved issue for us. The sites are long, grassy (some muddy spots), various levels and easy to back into. The width was ok, but any lanai would have to be at the back. The sewer receptacles were higher than our exit valve, which made emptying too risky for spillage.
OK for an overnight stay but the city is working on the utilities, so more than half of the sites are not available. Easy pull-through but no sewer upon arriving, due to the work. Told it would be available by night: not so, needed to wait until morning. We left so it became a moot point for us. Sites are grassy, fairly level and a good width.
Very wooded area, various sizes of sites were "cut" into the natural hills. The road ways are very narrow and sometimes too steep on curves to really see where you are driving. Access to the shallow river is down the hill. Shore is sometimes sandy/gravel. Great place for dog to chase her ball or tubing by the kids. SINGLE washer/dryer is provided in each section but you can't tell if the equipment is already in use until you climb up (or down) with your bag of laundry. One great camping benefit was a map showing where the satellite roof-mounted domes will work OR where mobile tripod dishes will need to be used instead.
Well paved and very level pull-through sites are a bit too narrow though. There is a tree and square of dirt at the back corner and if you have a rear door, as our rig does, it is a challenge for placement. If you end-up in a site with a mature tree, your roof-mounted satellite dish wouldn't work. The river is indeed within walking distance. Due to the heavy winter snow run-off the river was fast, cold and a bit too rough for our dog but a nice view. Location is great for access to both Sparks and Reno as it is on the border between the two. The office/grounds staff was very helpful with a shore-water challenge that we encountered. Their recommendation was right on the money. The person who everntually came to the site to correct our problem was very competent and reasonable (in price).
Entrance/exit to the park was very STEEP! Spaces were tight and very unlevel! Only some spaces have 50 amps. Grassy space and picnic table only real positives. There was a fenced storage area that could be used for running the dog.
Smallest spaces, we have ever seen. Truck barely fit on side of rig. Luckily we were able to pull through the rear site because there is no way we could have made the tight 90 degree turn into space from the narrow road way. Laundry was open only on certain weekdays, not week-ends. Good news is that it was close off highway and San Luis Obispo.
Sites were short, narrow and not very level. Luckily it wasn't busy while we were there because it would have been close quarters had our neighboring slots been filled. Very windy up on the hillside. The path to the dunes was mid-park and about 1 1/2 mile walk to shore line. Not too noisy with dune buggies but then it wasn't very busy at the park.
Lots of permanent residents, great trees, power was iffy - luckily we have built in surge protection. We were on the hilltop in section N so we had good satellite and internet connectivity. Nothing fancy here but worth the Coast-to-Coast rate.
Our first Coast-to-Coast experience since buying the membership in Fall of 2009. Needed assistance with backing-in. Not much shade. Spaces were concrete pad - a little on the short side - between rocky/gravel yards. No sewer in the C2C available spaces. Right in town - so convenient to everything.
This was our second time here and we moved to a less expensive and more treed space in the Willow area. The spaces are wide and long with small covered lanai and picnic tables. The $35 per month for the dog didn't provide any amenities for use - such as a fenced dog run space. Otherwise we really liked the winter weather/temperatures, and you are close to everything including the city via the Trolley.
We had a short stay in their pull-throughs. The sites were roomy but a bit off level. The SKP Owners sites are up the hill. We didn't check them out this time. The road to this campground is narrow and windy. Local traffic was not pleased with our slow progress.
We have stayed here a number of times for an over-night. The sites are spacious, level and long enough for us (45') to remain hooked-up. Great ambiance of REAL orange trees: blossoms and fruit. But you can't pick the fruit. There is a fruit stand within walking distance but not much else. So, come prepared with dinner and breakfast.
We stay here often and have enjoyed the biking opportunities. Has lots of shade in tight spaces. Some of the spaces are easier to back into than others but not always available. Park backs up to bike path to the local Feather River College or into Quincy and fronts on to a creek. Has very rustic setting in the park and close to town (1/2 mile).
We stay here alot! This '09 visit was our first. The spaces are all pull-throughs of the same size but the vegetation on both sides of the concrete pad impacts rig placement. Sometimes the trees or bushes affect the slide outs or door/stairs. Because we have a rear door we had to be very careful about how far we set into the site. The concrete picnic table is NOT movable and we didn't want to step out onto the table. The casino is next door and FUN!
This is absolutely the worst park we have ever been in, both in geography and customer service. While there are some sites on the hill with space and trees, to get there you need to cross a concrete pad which can be flooded by the creek/stream below it. We selected and were approved to set-up on one of the front sites: which was bare and boggy but did have utilities and didn't require crossing the "bridge". Four days into our stay we were informed at 6:30pm that we needed to move to another site as they had made a mistake in allowing us to park in this site. We were not allowed to wait until morning and therefore were hitching up in the dusk / dark. We left the park and were penalized on the rate as we hadn't stayed the full week. We went to a Wal-Mart parking lot for the night and then another nearby campground to complete our stay in the area. Can't say strongly enough that you might want to try other campgrounds!
You pay on the honor system. The sites were roomy and easy to pull through. We were here in the off season, so we had a lot of choices. Smooth entry and exit paths considering they were dirt with a little gravel.
We were visiting a permanent (6 months per year) resident, and were able to use one of the visiting slots. Well, groomed and cared for park. Really, probably one of the best campgrounds we have been to. It's out in the corn fields away from towns. Everything worked and a minor problem we had with hooking-up was addressed quickly by the grounds crew.
There are a lot of trees which is both good and bad news: it was a dark campground. The spaces were narrow and difficult to back into. There were some pull-throughs at the front of the camp but they didn't have full hook-ups. Probably 75-90% were park models, with the remaining sites for tourists. The laundry area was outdoors and had few machines. The exit road to the highway was very very rough: even going slow was very bumpy.
Park is very close to the Dells and associated tourist sites. Green grass and trees everywhere was really a surprise as it's close to the road system. Has an open area for well behaved dogs to run early in the morning. Please pickup your dog’s droppings every time. Remember if we break the rules, parks will begin to deny pets as guests. Thanks!
The spaces a bit tight but there is nice shade and a dog run on the West side of park. We thought the costs was a bit high but great location with respect to seeing the Twin City area while still being in the "woods".
Great small regional park right on Lake Michigan. Mixed sites with/without all hook-ups and satellite access. We were able to exercise our dog in the lake each morning. This park has a leash regulation: use one on your dog at all times. Remember if we break the rules, parks will begin to deny pets as guests. Thanks!
The area around our site was poorly maintained. The directions on how to enter the site and the related utilities were really screwy. We had to connect on the opposite side to our hook-ups. Only positive is that the dogs are allowed in a section of the lake and ours finally swam: as hectic and splashy as it was; it was swimming! Please pickup your dog’s droppings every time. Thanks!
This park has lots of pull-through sites with space and fire pits. Also a full-time park model area on the hill side. Bone up on your high school French as that is their primary language. Some people are willing to humor Americans by speaking flawless English but remember you are in a foreign country with a different language. Don't be an ugly American. We spent the 4th of July and had a fireworks-free holiday! Please remember to pickup your dog’s droppings every time. Thanks!
Nice campground with spaces that back up to the river. The center pull-throughs, for short-timers like ourselves, are spacious. They were always working on improvements around the grounds. The only big negative was the mobile phone Verizon deadzone in the campground itself. In fact, we had trouble getting coverage within St Johnsbury itself. Even bought a Trac phone on advise of camp owners/managers but weren't able to use that either. Please pickup your dog’s droppings every time. Thanks!
This park has a lot of trees (and shade)? While we were here it rained and rained and rained, so we really couldn't tell about the shade. Sites were such that the utilities were a stretch from our hook-ups. Please pickup your dog’s droppings every time. Thanks!
This park has great sites interspersed in among the trees. Ours was a bit tricky with a very large rock at the entrance. There's lots of shade and room to walk the dog in real nature. Remember please, to pickup your dog’s droppings every time. If we break the rules, parks will begin to deny pets as guests. Thanks!
This park has nice sized spaces with shade variants. Be sure to drive/walk around campground before accepting an assigned site. Some sites are muddy and/or provide no satellite access. Check that your access card works while there is still someone in the office to replace it.
Located right off the highway, but there's not much within walking distance. Please pickup your dog’s droppings every time. Do not leave them on the side of the grassy areas, in the back of your space, or even in the designated “Dog Walk” area. It is disgusting to come upon another dog’s “business” while walking my dog. This park has a leash regulation: use one on your dog at all times. Remember if we break the rules, parks will begin to deny pets as guests. Thanks!
This is a brand new park. The sites are cut into the mountain side, so that they are stepped down the side. That way you have a small view and can feel separate from your close neighbors. There are lots of caves and caverns in the vicinity.
We were here early for the season. So the pool and other amenities weren't ready. There were 2 separate sections: one for the full-time park models and then the temporary RVs. Has a small clean laundry room. Please pickup your dog’s droppings every time. Thanks!
Park has nice wide spaces between large tall trees. There weren't any pull-throughs, but the roadways and spaces allowed for a lot of leeway in backing into the spaces. Great flat biking back and forth to office or laundry.
This is a new park. Due to road repairs in the area, you had to go the long way around to get to the park. There is lots of space between the paved/raised sites. We were here as the only residents and appreciated the freedom to run the dog. Please pickup your dog’s droppings every time. This park has a leash regulation: use one on your dog at all times.

"Hidden" is a great name for the location. Honestly it reminded us of the movie "Deliverance". The pathways and sites were very very bumpy. We had a pull through but it was so rough, we ended up backing out of the space. One night was more than enough for us.
The sites had concrete pads but the gravel to and from the RV location sloped down. Difficult to unhook/hook up and to level the rig. Winds were blowing almost all of the time from the South. they had a small fenced dog area but a really big front field that provided for running on long long leashes. The park has a leash regulation - use one on your dog at all times. Remember if we break the rules, parks will begin to deny pets as guests.
Only there for an overnight. Please pickup your dog’s droppings every time. Do not leave them on the side of the grassy areas, in the back of your space, or even in the designated “Dog Walk” area.

Spaces are at right angles to the road ways and very challenging to back the 5th wheel into. Luckily, their experienced staff were able to do the parking for us. Otherwise, we would have had to find another park. They have only recently allowed pets and some of the permanent residents were less than friendly while others were very accommodating (treats, etc.). So, just be aware. There is a fenced off-leash area in the West wash for the dogs. It is small but much better than nothing to really run a dog.
Nice campground: not busy during week and not completely full on week-ends. The hosts vary month to month. No easy access to ranger or hosts; and would have preferred full hook-ups. Weekly rate of $171 included a dog fee. Dog owners: if you are staying or plan to stay, please, please do not leave dog droppings on the side of the grassy areas, in the back of your space, or in the designated “Dog Walk” area. It is disgusting to come upon another dog’s “business” while walking mine.
