This RV park was the first place we took our very first new travel trailer. We wanted a close to home location with all the hookups to make sure we knew how to use everything. We were shocked at how clean and beautiful this park was! Everyone was incredibly friendly and helpful. There’s an awesome walking trail around the park. We had our 6 year old with us and she loved to scooter around the walking path with us. We used the free WiFi to homeschool as well. This is a great place to visit. We specifically stayed in spot 24, but any of the spots along the back have a beautiful view of the canyon.
I’ve been coming to this place park for years. This is literally the best place to see a sunset of "The Bay". There are a lot of trails for hiking. However, the draw back to this place is the about of cyclists on the narrow and worn out pavement that we call roads. If you are queasy about motion and switch backs, plan on bringing a plastic bag to vomit in. There are no guard rails so if your driver isn’t paying attention, off you go down the mountain. Once your are settled in, this becomes a very peaceful and relaxing place. One other thing, no matter how hot it is, you’ll never be able to escape the howling winds at night. Good tent stakes and warm gear and binoculars is a must.
We stayed here on an off week. Almost had the place to ourselves except for the full timers. The amenities were not open…off season and/or COVID…but we went and took a look and got a thumbs up by our 7 year old daughter. The place looks great for a summer stay!
We used the spot to not be in the snow but make the trip up to Iron Mountain Sno-Park…a 45 minute drive. The snow looked great for skiing but not so much for snowmen or sledding. Wish we had snow shoes!
The next day it was rainy so we drove an hour to Sacramento to visit the zoo and old town. On the way back we stopped at Sutter Creek (an old mining town) and had locally made ice cream in Pine Grove. If you are looking for hipster coffee — Sutter Creek is the way to go!
On our last day we checked out and drove the trailer over to the Indian Grinding Rock State Park. Very few in the parking lot which allowed us to take up a bunch of spots…otherwise there would t have been parking for us. We did the southern trail nature hike and saw the grinding rocks. It’s a must see in our opinion.
On our way out we stopped at the local taco truck…advice from a local. They serve breakfast burritos all day. Get the chorizo. It is the most legit breakfast burrito you’ll ever get!
Bottom line — it’s a great spot to get around the area. We want to come back in the warmer months. Only issue was the internet was not working…and our T-Mobile phones didn’t have coverage in the area. That’s on us though. If you want cell service and reliable internet I don’t think you can hold the campground liable for that!
This is a well maintained RV and tent camping resort. It’s great for kids that want to ride bikes around the sites- but be careful of the river, it’s swift. The RV and tent sites are in two separate areas, with more updated amenities available for RVs like hot showers. Shared pool site. Lots of great trails to weave through the campground on a mountain bike.
One downside- it can be hot. Not a lot of tree cover for the RV sites- make sure you bring shade with you. Luckily, there’s a nice cool river to swim in!
Fires are restricted sometimes in the summer. Some sites require a membership.
Local grocery and pizza, frozen yogurt available within walking distance.
Lots of great fishing, floating, and kayak accessibly. Bring tubes and life vests. Poles and bait.
The reason I’m giving this three stars is because I the general area is not a spectacular nature reserve like Mendocino or some mountain lake campsite. It is near the river and the spaces are enough to park your RV and have your dogs run around a little. The surrounding neighborhood which rather low rent and had a number of permanent trailers. It wasn’t far from the river road and you could regularly hear the noise of passing vehicles. The traffic was fairly light at night however. There was the opportunity to hear and view plenty of birds and geese. You also have the opportunity of fishing here and although I cast my line in a few times I did not have any luck. There is a general store however it was closed due to the pandemic. They also provide propane and all sites have electric water and sewer.￼￼
I stayed here for one night in a 22’ RV at one of the back-in sites for the shorter term stays on a drive from Death Valley back towards the San Francisco Bay area. I believe the office is currently closed due to Covid, but they have a box of maps and envelopes plus a drop box for payment right outside the office.
It looks like most of the spots here are for pretty long term stays. There was plenty for space for short term, overnight campers. Spot comes with WiFi code, but there’s plenty of cell service too. You’re close to the I5 and can hear the soft lull of some traffic, but it’s still fairly quiet.
