This park is over run with people who are rude and abusive. People were fighting too. Very weird. The showers were dirty and broken. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

Basic campground with a lot of permanent residents. The couple of junky sites we noticed last time we were through, are gone. Roads are gravel as are pads. Grass in front. Trees will need trimming but proved no problem at this time. Good for a short stay. They have a par 3 exec golf course right next to the park and the price is right. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Not an easy entrance to see, look for the brick wall about 1/4 mile down Pacific Heights Road. Sites are level, gravel and grass, some with shade. I only saw 30amp, so call ahead if you need 50amp. A distant Highway-70 noise at night but not bad. They have cable TV, but no internet. Trailer Life shows a Wi-fi hot-spot, but office said none available. Nine-hole golf course on park grounds, and nice swimming pool. Restrooms and showers were clean. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here because of the clean appearance at our first impression. Lawns are nice. It's noisy, workmen start mowing and doing maintenance at 6am. They are really anal about keeping even your cat on a leash. Large sites, cheap enough but I wouldn't stay there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed at Lime Saddle State Park. It was okay at best for the money. We have stayed here in the past, but only because there is little else to choose from and in the past it was more affordable. The State of California has doubled the rates at all of their campgrounds because of the budget crisis and it is too bad that they have chosen to get it out of people who enjoy the State Park facilities. The RV sites are $40 and the tent sites are $20 which is very high for what you get. Pay showers as well. We will try to find another place to stay next time. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
State website would not allow us to make reservation online Thursday for Friday (need 24 hours in advance only) so took a chance and drove up here. They would only allow us to pay for one night and said we could "probably" stay two nights. Online reservations would have been closed down for Saturday by Friday: so gatekeeper would have known then if 2 nights available. Hello? The park was virtually empty: which even made this even more ridiculous. Last time we will stay. That silliness plus no internet, no cable, no amenities to speak of for the new price of $40 - no thanks!! I'd rather stay in a KOA or on the river in town for that $$$ We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
We stayed on the Bidwell side with full hookups. The spots are roomy with lot of space between. The bathrooms were clean and nice. (The Loafer Creek area is even more picturesque with large trees and sites and lots of spaces, but no hookups over there.) The pads are mostly level and asphalt. There are picnic tables. The scenery is nice and we had ducks and deer walk through our site. You can’t see the lake too well from this campground and we never did find a way to get to the water. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Excellent State Campground; full hookups (only) at the Bidwell Canyon Area; paved, back-in sites, most level with shade, WIFI is available at the Recreation Building for $8 per day via AT&T. Marina with store and bait shop, boat launch. Showers were tiled with individual locking rooms, fifty-cents for 5 minutes, very clean. Stayed here four nights, very quiet. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Off season the place is empty as Reserve America states no sites are available. It actually is first come, first served after October. Great Camp hosts, very nice rangers. Full hookups was $19, and the camp was only 1/3 full Thanksgiving week. The lake was low, but if not, the water would be right behind most sites. Lots to do in the area, including the Fish Hatchery, boating, fishing, swimming. Showers were all tile, immaculate. Restrooms were also tiled, immaculate, but no soap. Summer could be busy, but winter is special at this state park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here for almost a week and really enjoyed ourselves especially since it was so warm. Hot days and beautiful nights. The lake is only about 200-300 feet from the campsites. There are a number of very sheltered sites that provide a wind block during windy days. The spurs are asphalt but the area where you sit is dirt. There are fire rings and picnic tables. Lots of boating, fishing and swimming going on when we were there. The Feather River Salmon Hatchery is close by and they are open to the public. Very interesting watching the salmon climb the ladders on their way into the hatchery. Sheriff cruises through a few times a day to check on things. Quiet at night, no road noise. Rates are $19.00 or $17.00 if 62 or older. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice RV park. Site were level, grass was neatly trimmed. Staff was very helpful. The only reason we did not give this park a 10 was because there weren't a lot of trees. We camped here in a Motorhome.
KOA rate for a back-in site. Very clean with nice pool and spa. Wi-Fi and cable TV worked fine. Level concrete site, with grass and picnic table. Friendly staff. Short walk to the casino. The RV park hands out some good coupons. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We were in site #33. Enjoyed the patio & furniture (once we put our chair pads on). Didn't use the barbeque (it was filthy). The site hookups were on the side with the patio & grass which was very awkward. The only other problem we had was when we were leaving we had to back out of our site into the empty site behind us (Thank Goodness it was empty!)because we could not make the turn going forward without wiping out there fencing & taking out the vehicles across from us. We didn't use the casino as we are not gamblers, just the campground as our usual park in Chico was full. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very tidy park. Had a playground for kids and a separate one with agility features for dogs. Nice pool and hot tub! Showers were the most spacious I have ever seen in RV park and very clean. Concrete pads to park on, small grass lot by each site. Had luxury pads with lawn chairs, umbrella, chiminea, and gas BBQ. If you are into a casino, it is a short walk and apparently they will give you ride back to RV park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This small park next door to a casino is beautifully landscaped. The cable and Wi-Fi are OK. We had some road noise from our back-in site. It is spotlessly maintained, easy to locate and we would stay here again when in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The staff here was so friendly and nice! They even gave us a $10 roll of quarters to wash our dirty clothes after we'd been out on our ATVs for the day. They checked in with us to make sure we were having a good time and took our suggestions to heart. Only suggestion that I have that can't be met: the TRIBAL folks decided this park was NOT worthy of a sound wall. However, the noise isn't bad and it is quiet enough to sleep and enjoy your stay. Playground for the kids, puzzles and a TV in the rec room for them as well. The manager was even open to the idea of adding a Wii in the future so the kids would have even more to do. Also, this campground is only 15 minutes from the Oroville Clay Pits, which is a fantastic FREE beginner playground for people with dirt bikes and ATVs. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Unfortunately, I find myself comparing this park to another nearby casino RV park, but here it goes. Park is right next to casino and on weekends expect a lot of late night loud traffic. It is a nice, clean park with a spa and small pool, and small playground. The sites are close together, and the cement pad is very small as well as sloped to the side (you will need side leveling). The first back in row seems to be all perms. If you have kids or dogs, be prepared that they don't allow dogs or bikes to exit the RV park and go on the rest of the property. Compared to Jackson Rancheria, it is a poor step child, but for a KOA it is nice. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a KOA located on the grounds of the Feather River Casino. The roads are asphalt. The sites are concrete slabs with lawn on each side. There are a combination of back in and pull through sites. Some end sites of the aisles are called patio sites (extra concrete, picnic table with umbrella and a fire pit). Other end sites are called Party sites, (large concrete area, gas BBQ, picnic table with umbrella and small sink.) Our site #36 was a back in site. We needed a 1/4 board to level our trailer side to side. There was a sewer hook up at each end of the site that was very convenient. We had a small concrete area in the lawn with a picnic table. The staff was very friendly. There is a well stocked store/gift shop on the premises. The Wi-Fi worked very well. Discount coupons were provided for the store and casino. The space was not long enough to park my truck and trailer in the RV spot. The road was wide enough that most people parked their tow rigs across the entrance to their spot. This parking arrangement did not interfere with other rigs using the roads. A nice RV park. I would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a 10 star RV park. All sites are extremely well maintained. In addition to cable TV, all sites have a clear view of Dish satellites. My stay included a $10 off coupon for lunch/dinner at the casino restaurants as well as some free 'chips' at the casino. Sites are roomy and two sewer hookups, one at each end of the rig, for use. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I love this RV park. Wish it had a little more shade - but the trees will grow - it is still a relatively new park. Everything is clean and new - office staff is very friendly and helpful. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
This was the first RV park we have stayed in. It was clean and the staff was friendly. It's fairly new so the trees are still growing, so if you demand shade this could be an issue. We would stay there again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was the KOA discount rate for a standard back-in site. This was my second time at this park and I still believe it to be the nicest in the KOA system. All of the sites are a bit short, but the drives are wide enough to park in front of your rig. They use a lot of water to maintain lush green grass and young trees. The sprinklers run every night and will soak anything you leave outside but do not seem to leave spots. There are some leaking water lines around. The Wi-Fi worked great. The concrete pads are just big enough to back onto for big rigs. The casino is a short 5 minute walk from your site or a free ride on the casino shuttle. Lots of new fun & loose slots and a buffet open almost all day everyday. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is our 2nd time here. First time I gave this place a 10, this time, not so good. Basically, the park is still clean and the restrooms, while not fancy, are utilitarian. The small pool and tiny spa (seats 6) are enjoyable for small numbers but could get quite crowded in summer. First night here, no internet. Spent a lot of time trying to get online with no success - very frustrating. Next morning asked for help at front desk. A very grumpy guy said it essentially wasn't his problem. His internet was working fine for the office, and tough luck for the rest of us slobs paying the bills around here. He said it was Comcast's problem but did reluctantly agree to reset the router! That's all he had to do for me to finally get online. The nightly rate was $44 + $3/night extra for a 7 yr old child. Note: call ahead! There is a $2 premium/night charge for walk-ins. So, at $47/night for a standard site and the grumpy attitude of the guy working in the office, no 10 rating this time. May come back again because it is convenient and clean but I'll be sure to reserve ahead to avoid the chintzy tack on charge. Owners should look in to hospitality training for the guy in the office. The ladies have always been nice though. If he's the owner, then he may not get many repeat customers. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice newer park. The park is very clean, the shower and bathroom were in great shape. Nice space between sites. Small playground for kids and great area for pets. Good cable and WIFI. Some permanent campers, but everything very well maintained. We would stay here again when in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Again, this park has been a pleasure to stay with. It was very cold (28) but the hot tub was hot! Outstanding! A great value, super nice folks, Wi-Fi rocks. We will be back for sure! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Wonderful campground! Very nicely done for a KOA! The check in was super easy as I'd made reservations and paid online just the day before. Staff in the wonderfully stocked store were friendly. There is a large recreation room with ample seating to play cards or just visit. This would be a wonderful place for a family reunion because of the nicely done rec room with the large counter area and fridge and bathroom inside. Loved the cleanliness of the park with all asphalt pavement and concrete pads. Minimal sites had a nice picnic table and grass area separating each site. The more expensive sites had very nice patio furniture, wood burning fire pits and huge gas grills! The kids' playground is small but perfect for kids under 10. Loved that it was all fenced in and the parents could actually sit down in the nice seating while kids ran around without fear of them running into the street. Just adjacent to the playground is a small pool and spa (which we did not use) but did look great. A trail leads you straight to the casino next door. Feather Falls Casino is still unimpressive, compared to Gold Country or Thunder Valley. Their restaurant isn't up to the standards of these other nicer casinos I just mentioned. Tried to walk our 7 yr old through casino to get to restaurant and the guard said the child could not be on the casino floor. We asked how we're supposed to get him to the restaurant and the guard said she "had no idea." Clearly, the casino does not want children inside -- not even to eat. At least the campground is great! Just don't expect to take kids to eat in this casino. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We "think" we will enjoy this campground. It is beautiful, concrete slab sites (almost level) with a concrete patio area. Our only concern is that the people in the next site (we have just checked into Site #1) have a dog leash (double leash) tied outside, and when they return, hope they will move it, because if the dogs are able to roam free from where it is tied, they will be able to reach our site. Oh, I just may be making a trip to the office. I love dogs, but sure do not want someone else dogs doing their business on our site. If all goes as we hope, will stay here, again. The restrooms and showers are clean. There is a good laundry facility. The office staff is very friendly. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
We have stayed at Feather Falls three times in the last year and a half. We stayed in May 2009, November 2009 and our last vist was in May 2010. All of our experiences at this campground have been pleasant. We are please with the condition of the grounds. They have a great pool with extremely clean restrooms and showers. We stay in the party site with built in BBQ and find that site to be quiet and very pleasant. We recommend this campground and site to all looking fun peace,quite and a great place to relax. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We love this park. It's very clean and has great office folks! Casino is next door. (They gave us $25.00 free play.) Restrooms are clean! The Wifi didn't work, so I called the office. They reset the router and thanked me for letting them know, nice. Has lot's of green grass. We will be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had a very pleasant stay. Wi-Fi was at times weak but worked. All streets are wide and sites are easy to maneuver into. The staff is friendly and helpful. Check in was swift. We were provided with excellent cable and free guide. The casino is a very short distance away and mostly a level walk. The park is well lighted and patrolled. We noted just a little road noise from the adjacent roadway. Electrical power was strong even with both air conditioners set on kill. Highly recommended and definitely a five star stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a beautiful, clean campground with friendly staff. The showers are private rooms, with heaters. Sites are paved and well-spaced, although a little short for parking a 32 ft. RV and a truck. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A very nice park: clean and everything you would want. They have a nice pool and spa; very clean restrooms and showers; a nice store and a fast Wi-Fi. There are lots of cable TV at this quiet and clean park, plus a free shuttle to the casino or a easy 5 min walk. Park is very close to the lake. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a somewhat nice park. It is relatively new and within walking distance to the casino. The restrooms were clean, however, there was no sink near the shower, so if you had to shave or brush your teeth, etc., you had to go to the restroom which was in a different area. The biggest complaint was that the cement pads were not level and it was difficult to get the rig level. You would think that a park as new as this was would have more level pads. The trees are still very small didn't provide any shade which would have been nice since it was 100 degrees the day were were there. The other thing was that the pool closed at 9:00PM. It was 90 degrees at 9 PM when we were there and we certainly would have appreciated being able to use the pool after 9 PM. The park is close to the casino so you do have the road noise and also the neon lights coming through your windows at night. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a beautiful park located on a hill in front of the Feather Falls Casino. The RV park is easily accessible with all roads paved leading to nice landscaped level sites. The casino is a short walk, or you can park in the 5 story parking garage adjacent the casino. The KOA park has a great rally room, a heated swimming pool and spa, concrete RV pads with two sewer and water connections, 50 amp connections, and some sites upgraded with patios and grills. The sites are beautifully maintained with grass, flowers, and scrubs. The food in the casino is very good and reasonably priced. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The only reason it got a eight is because of the price. I was forced to stay here because of the car show which I was part of. If not for that, forget it. I will boycott KOA at all costs. They had there day and they blew it. They gouged and overcharged. If not for some attractions and Casinos they have connected with, they would go bust. Out of fairness this is a nice park. For families it has allot to offer, but for fixed income people, there is no such thing as a value card here. Other than the occasional use for a KOA (special event) I won't be back. Even at that I will look at all my other options first, to bad they lost me in the early nineties. I could have given this park a one because of my dislike for KOA'S but for some one who does not mine paying out the nose you will love it! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Best KOA we have ever stayed at! All the amenities, plus pool and hot tub, kids playground, gift shop, etc. Drawbacks: trees have not grown enough over the past 4-years to provide shade, and no fire rings. We checked their Casino website for RV specials and found the $27 rate (Sunday through Thursday). Quiet at night. The Oroville Dam is worth a visit if you get tired of losing money at the Casino. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I'd give it a 10 but the surrounding properties are run down. I love the Feather Falls casino and I win here. You get $10/day free slot play and $5/day buffet discounts with stay. Buffet is small it will do. Shuttle will pick you up at your RV or a quick walk across parking lot gets you right to casino. The park is so clean and charming. Great staff. Great showers!!! Darling store on site. Gas right on corner near Casino property. Another casino located minutes away in Oroville. Oroville itself doesn't have much draw but a drive up to Table Rock or Hwy 70 are both beautiful and worth the drive. Lake Oroville is very close by. Wonderful getaway park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
One of the best we have stayed in. What every one below in the reviews is just the way it is. We will be going back again and again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 10 / 10 ]
Very clean, still like new. Casino is handy for dining, and there's very little else around unless you go back to Oroville. A word of advice- reserve early, especially the deluxe sites. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park is very nice with cement pads and wide paved roads. All sites have green grass like a park. The casino is in walking distance, but they have a cute shuttle to pick you up. They allow pets. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was the nicest of 30 parks that I have stayed at this year. The park is very new and very well groomed with lush green weed-free grass. A lot of water is used to keep it so lush, but I was very pleased with the clean feeling at the park. Very wide drives with many pull-throughs. The concrete patio pads are very nice, though could be a foot or two wider. The fact that this KOA does not allow tent camping changes the environment and is very unique - yet a pleasant surprise. The adjacent casino is nice and offered the best buffet of any I have visited. I will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Brand new and very manicured campground. Good hookups; concrete paved level sites. A few permanent residents - unexpected given how new it is and the location. One side backs up against the parking lot for the casino and the other backs up against the road. Since it was 98 degrees while we were there we had the air on all the time and couldn't say if it was noisy but we sat out late at night and enjoyed the stars and it wasn't too bad. Clean individual showers including some handicapped access, nice pool and spa, playground equipment, laundry room and meeting room by the convenience store. Dog walk area. Security from the casino was driving through regularly, shuttle van to/from the casino if you don't want to walk the 1/8 of a mile across the parking lot. Will be much more pleasant when the trees mature but still very clean, safe campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This new CG was put together nicely. The combination of grass, paved RV pad and good wide interior roads, make manuvering very easy, even for a 40'+ motorhome. Pull throughs are a little short for a 40' and toad so I choose a back-in. Pool was just completed and not yet heated. Nice quiet area, not much road noise. Very clean and well kept. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a new park, well laid out and very clean. Pool is under construction and trees are still small. Food in adjacent casino cafe was horrible, but their buffet may be better. Good place to stop overnight and you may be lucky like we were to win enough to pay for camping. We discovered on the way out they have a no-smoking section in the casino. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
All concrete, level sites, back-in and pull-through, free WiFi, cable TV, grass and picnic table. Very clean showers and restrooms, individual locking rooms with heaters and tile. Great buffet at the casino. Quiet at night. Small store with RV supplies, gift shop, propane, friendly hosts. Excellent RV park, if you enjoy the amenities. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have visited several times this year and this park is continually making improvements for their customers even though it's new. The casino is close but they also provide shuttle service door to door if you can't or choose not to walk. They also cater to groups too. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 9 / 10 ]
Nice park, brand new so trees aren't fully grown providing no shade, has a nice clubhouse and is walking distance to casino. The premium sites on the ends have nice patio furniture and some have built in bbqs. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice fairly new park, within walking to the casino. Nice bonus is free WiFi, with antennas at each end of the park, so availibility is throughout the park. Quiet setting with very little traffic noise. We camped here in a Motorhome.

This is a nice, new RV park located near the Feather Falls Casino in Oroville. Our premium site included patio furniture and a BBQ grill! We had a good overnight stay and a great buffet dinner at the casino (walking distance). Staff very helpful, no problems with big rig access. Only problem noted was that sites are short and there are only three pull-through sites suitable for 40' rig towing car. Make sure you tell them if you need long pull through if you are towing. Highly recommended nice campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
An OVERPRICED RV park with sites for larger rigs in back of the mobile home park. Poor maintenance, showers/restrooms a long walk, mediocre river access, no cable or wifi, poor access to the sites if other RV's were there. We were there four nights and were the only ones in the back section. Speaks volumes. Poor signage for the park. Clean restrooms but needed a separate key for men and women. Park needs a lot of work before they can expect to have much business. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a smaller, cozy park (RV's over 33 feet long are placed in the adjacent Golden Feather Mobile Home Park) with great access to outdoor activities. The Feather River is right next door for access to excellent fishing. Lake Oroville is just a short drive for those looking to go boating. Oh, don't forget the Oroville Dam. It's the tallest dam in the U.S.! The sites are all full hook-up, very level, have clean gravel and new 50-amp power pedestals with basic cable TV. The owners are putting a lot of attention and money into the park and it really shows. The bathrooms are brand new with beautiful tile floors, granite counter tops, and a large shower. And the on-site convenience store (the Golden Feather Marketplace) is being completely remodeled (it's schedule to re-open in April, 2011). It will offer beverages, snacks, bait & tackle, household & toiletry items, ice, propane and much more. Everyone we met and talked to while we stayed here, was friendly and helpful. Especially the on-site managers. (The office is located in the adjacent mobile home park in space #201.) We stayed for just a few nights, but the also offer weekly and monthly rates if you want more time to explore. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Campground was easy to find and the staff is friendly. Would be better if they had Wi-Fi. There are no "permies," so that is very nice. Our spot is a row back from the river, but in front of us is the tent area and there is no one there so we have a nice view of the river. We arrived on a Sunday and it was very quiet. But Monday morning, the noise let us know there is a cement plant next door, there is also a shooting range across the river, but it must be far enough away to not impact too much. The hwy is slightly noticeable, but easy to ignore. Monday morning we went out to breakfast and toured around the area, then came back to relax the rest of the afternoon. However, there is a worker running a weed-whip that has been going nearby our campsite for the past couple hours. Hopefully he will be finished soon. There is a lot of grass and it is a pleasant place, other than the noise. We would come again, as this is the best you can get in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice Park with good sized sites and lots of trees. Had a back-in site with good view of Feather River. Very good birding. Friendly staff. Close to SR 70, but minimal road noise. Laundry facility is in a little rusty building with only two rusty washers. We obviously did not use them. Would stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
If you are looking for an excellent place to relax and regroup after a hard week at work, this is the place to go! The manager even took us to Walmart on her birthday because we needed a couple things for our motorhome. I love how relaxing, quiet, and peaceful it is here and how everyone respects everyone else. What a great place to stay! Can't wait to go back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park was in good condition, clean and quiet. We had a river front pull-through site, concrete pad was level, with a picnic table and fire ring. No WiFi and no cable TV, we did get about 10 channels with our antenna. Only one restroom for the entire park, so it got plenty of use. The Park was full, quite a few permanents, but no problems. A Nice river walk trail heading north out of the park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice park right off highway 70. If it's night time, you can't miss their huge lighted sign. Easy to find. Owners/operators are fantastic. The owners gave us the key to one of their cabins to tour. The cabins are adorable and immaculate and so nice to have private bathroom and shower in the cabins. RV sites are roomy. The end site on the river view frontage has a wonderful view of the Feather River. The sites on down the "river view" lots can't have much of a view though due to the high vegetation. We walked a trail from the park to get to a flat area along the river and fished some. This park is a very acceptable stop over, or even a few nights stay. I prefer to have Wi-Fi but would return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We chose this RV park because it was close to the Feather River. I wanted to camp near the water. I was pleasantly surprised. It was beautiful and on the water. They have a concrete boat ramp for guests to use for small fishing boats. The park was clean, quiet, and friendly. We were greeted by the owners upon arrival and check in went smoothly. We had requested a site by the river, but when the owner saw our rig, she suggested another site that she thought would be more suitable. It was, and we appreciated the suggestion. While the park does not have some of the amenities that most RV'rs desire, we came equipped with our own satellite receiver and data card. They are unable to provide these services because of the remote nature of the community. They cannot get cable or DSL service from the local providers. Don't hold it against them. They are working on solutions. They have a complete underground sprinkler system that keeps the grass lush and green. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and rate it highly. We would definitely go back. Nice people. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
It is a quiet park at night. There is an occasional distant train whistle. A nearby cement plant was active but was not intrusive. There is a great walking path to north along the Feather River. It goes at least a mile to dog park at Oro Dam road. We stayed a week and enjoyed the quiet setting. There is no WIFI or cable TV. We picked up several major networks over the air; some better than others. We did not use restrooms. Our site was a pull through next to Feather River. The site was level. There is easy access to shopping and such on Oro Dam Blvd. We will stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Lovely place to camp. Level grassy and shady spots with a nice view of the river. Lots of good bike riding in the area. The river was shallow enough for children to swim or float on a raft. It was also very quiet. Bathrooms and showers were adequate and clean, but not too modern. This was our second stay here and we would return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here 3-days because it's located right on the Feather River with a boat launch. The $36 rate is with the discount, they take Good Sam or AARP. Has asphalt roads, and level gravel and grass sites. A few of the sites have concrete pads for your RV. Shade trees, fire pits, and the campground area was well manicured and clean. If you make a reservation they charge you the full amount up front, with 'no' refunds, not a friendly way to do business. No cable TV and no WiFi, they do have a dial-up internet available in the office. A faint highway noise at night. The worst part was the restrooms and showers, filthy! They weren't cleaned the three days we were here, and they need some repair and new paint. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We came here for our shakedown cruise in our brand new MH we picked up just hours earlier. Our welcome to the park was from a staff member in a golf cart yelling at us that we were speeding. (We weren't. We were driving a new MH!) Beyond that, it was a nice spot with great access to the river and a hiking trail to a wonderful large park. Our pull through site was tight. Back-in sites looked more spacious. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice place. The river is accessible for boating and fishing, but the concrete batch plant is just as close. We were there over Thanksgiving weekend, and the plant was quiet. Our neighbors had a parrot that mimicked the backup alarms and other sounds, though, but it was MUCH more entertaining than the real thing. It's obvious that the owners are improving the park facilities, and it is in a convenient location. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We really enjoyed this park. It is clean, quiet and well maintained. Very few shady spots so call ahead if you want some shade. It is very hot in summer. The river is shallow and was most enjoyable. The dogs were swimming everyday and loved it. Fishing is the best. People were catching huge salmon! The only complaint we had was that the flies were very heavy but I don't think the park could control that. Great spot. There were 4 of us and we had a great time. They had nice tables and fire pits as well. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed with a group of other RV'ers. It was dusty, when others went by. Some sites have shade, most did not. One branch did fall, and almost crashed into a trailer. Nobody got hurt. Water pressure was pretty low, and the trailers who lived there, got the best sites and left the worst for anyone else. The meeting room (double wide) was in bad shape and surprised it was still standing. Lucky for us, we went fishing on the lake. This park did have a boat launch, but was dirt, instead of concrete. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Pros: Truly large sites, many shade trees in most areas. Rustic "campground" feel even though it's just outside a city. Owners/managers patrol grounds frequently. Visually quite beautiful. Anything one could need can be found nearby, even RV repairs. I'm told the fishing is very good (not into fishing). Cons: "Internet access" is a phone cord in the (very small) office where you must perform all functions directly in front of the manager and/or guests and apparently while standing the whole time. Fairly high rates, and an additional $5 per child PER DAY. This is outrageous and will prevent my return. No facilities for the children you were robbed blind for bringing. No cable or satellite TV - the cables can still be found, but have clearly been cut - at the rates charged this is a strange decision. The "group meeting" building is a decaying double-wide with serious water damage. Shower facilities have a total of four showers for 95 spaces. Laundry facilities have two washers and two dryers for the aforementioned 95 spaces. Signs in park say 5 mph, leaflet handed out says 3 mph - you figure it out. One is warned that the "no guests" policy is strictly enforced - the idea that you cannot have visitors when traveling is troubling. There are some perms for those that are bothered by this (I am not). We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a visually deceiving campground when you first enter. The full time RV's are sad but when you drive towards the river you are pleasantly surprised. For fly fishermen (and women!) it is a dream come true. Just walk down the pathway along the river and take your pick of spots! Downside is the cement plant that does make noise during the week. Upside is view of river (we could actually see the fish swimming!) Be sure to request a spot in back (we were put in front our first time because of the size of our rig but they moved us right away when we asked). We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
