This is a very small park and reservations are highly suggested. We were very frustrated while traveling South on 101 looking for a place to stay in the Napa/Santa Rosa areas. We read review after review and became very concerned for where we would stay. Always using RV Park Reviews we stumbled across reviews about this park. At first reading about the road to get to the park and the steep grade (hill, well actually side of a mountain) was disconcerting to say the least. Actually, with good reason when you first begin the trek but we made it without problems in our 40' RV with tow. And wow were we glad we did. What a drop dead gorgeous view of the Alexander Valley and all its glory. If fact, we extended our stay for two more nights just to enjoy the view and surrounding wine country. Management was very attentive to the guest and although the park does have full time residents they are in a totally different section of the park. We stayed in space 14. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We really liked this park a lot. It was convenient to the freeway, and the drive in was not a problem at all, through a very green neighborhood and up a curved driveway. Everything was beautifully cared for. We were in site 17, a pull-through with a lovely valley view out one side, and the very nice pool out the other. There is an old stone fish pond by the pool and plenty of comfortable poolside seating. The manager was as nice as any we have ever encountered. This place shows a lot of care and attention on the part of the management and we found it to be an excellent, quiet, scenic place to stay. We will return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice little RV park up on a hill. The sites are right by the sparkling pool. The camp managers, were the nicest managers we have met. One went above and beyond helping us get a satellite signal with our tailgater. Lots to do and see in the area. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Finding parks parks with access for 45' motorhome in the Napa/Sonoma area is limited mostly due to public road access. California DOT limits a lot of the local roads to 40' or less without a tow. Butcher Creek is right off the 101 and although the access road is via neighborhoods, the owners of the park regularly trim trees . Their private access road although steep is very navigable even with a tow. Once you get up you're in a little gem of an RV resort. the overnighters circle the pool, and giant trees provide some shade but not total. Access / maneuverability in park where nightly/weekly spots are are easy to get into. 50 amps reliable. Satellite is sketchy due to trees but tried twice to connect and second time found all satellite connections. Wi-Fi strong and reliable and free. Local shopping about mile away in Cloverdale. The Healdsburg area of wineries is about 10 miles away but no parks there especially for 45'. Would stay here again when in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beware of a very steep hill on drive up to park. They could not find our reservation so they squeezed us into a very tight space around the pool area. Extremely difficult to back in a 35 foot trailer. There was no privacy as trailers were virtually on top of each other. Promised us a picnic bench, but never delivered. Park has several levels and all the really nice spots taken by the regulars. Lovely views is about all I can say that is good. Will not stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Looks like you're lost, but follow the directions. It's up a steep hill with a big curve but no problem with 35' & toad. Nice fellow running it. Fairly level, gravel sights. Just overnighted but a great view from where they sit. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very quiet park, kind of scary driving in. If your not familiar with the park, your not certain your going the right direction. Keep going, you will be fine. Internet Wi-Fi was the best I've ever seen in a park. Was able to stream video from the internet. Verizon cell phone worked great as well. Shower and bathrooms were clean, a few bugs but that does not bother me. I would return here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We reserved site 17, a pull-through, for our 35' 5th wheel. Check-in staff was curt at best, bordering on rude. The older fellow who followed us to our site turned out to be the same person who allowed his gray poodle to defecate throughout the park and didn't pick up the proceeds! Campground rule #2: Dogs must be picked up after. Apparently that only applies to outsiders. The restrooms/showers were not cleaned even once during our 5 day, mid-summer stay, which prompted immediate empathy and even pity for those campers who did not have adequate facilities in their RVs. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
OK for an overnight but we were very disappointed to arrive after nine hours of travel to find they had given away our pre-paid pull-through site. We were given a site that was too small for our rig so the back of our trailer hung over the edge of the hill. We were unable to set our jacks or level our trailer so it made for a rocky night. The restrooms needed a good cleaning to get rid of the cobwebs and dirt. It has a pretty little pool that looked refreshing. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed at Dutcher Creek over July 4th, a spontaneous booking 2 days before. We have a 40ft coach so they gave us the pull through opposite the pool looking out at the valley. Despite many permanent residents the park is very clean, quiet, and well kept. We really didn't see anyone except the camp host ( a very nice man) and some other overnighters. Wi-fi worked well. Pool was clean. Site was gravel and our dogs got a bit dirty - we will now buy a camping mat. We biked to Lake Sonoma, 6.1 miles to the hatchery and wine tasted on the way back. A great location in wine country for a couple of nights. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed at this park for 2 nights. Park management was very friendly and helpful. Our site was sufficient for a 29' RV and Jeep. There are nice shade trees and a view over the hills. The park has easy access to vineyards and Lake Sonoma. The restrooms and the rest of the grounds were very clean. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very scenic location. The park is very rustic and quiet. The park has a new electrical power service but has no cable. The Wi-Fi worked very well. There is only one pull through site. The owner is a very nice guy. If you're looking for a scenic country RV park then this is for you. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
First, the good news: this park is very quiet (about a mile west of 101). Terrific views; it's up on a ridge overlooking the wine country. And the onsite manager was very helpful. Bad news: there's a very steep hill on the access road (10% grade?). The sites were not level. The sewer hookup was not conveniently located. The electric power did not work at our site(we had to use a very long extension cord). The bathroom wasn't very clean. The hot water was not hot enough. There aren't many pull through sites. There are quite a few permanent residents, but their rigs were very neat and clean. The Park only takes cash. [Phone: (707) 894-4829.] The next time I'm in Cloverdale, I might check out the KOA; but Dutcher might be quieter. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
