We lost brakes coming out of Death Valley over Townes Pass. Ended up staying a week here. Basic gravel site with cement patio. Next to Hwy 178 so there is some highway noise although it didn't bother us. Bertrand RV & Mobile Home Park is located west of downtown Ridgecrest. The campground has 58 sites for recreational camping with 10 reserved for short-term, overnight stays. These short-term sites are on gravel and have full patios. All of the short-term spaces only accommodate back-in parking and measure 20 feet by 40 feet in size. Full water, electric and sewage connections are available at each spot as well as cable television connections. Wireless Internet but isn't reliable at the transient spots. The campground DOES NOT PROVIDE RESTROOMS, SHOWERS or on-site recreational activities. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We were going to stay here for one night, but this is a scary looking park. Many older run down RVs seemed parked here forever. No one on duty when we came in, and although we saw 3 open spaces, I did not feel safe here at all. We did not stay. This is also an older mobile home park too. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A nice, quiet park right off the road just before town. One nighters are welcome. No showers so you must have a complete rig. Will stay there again on my next pass through the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Manager was very friendly and knowledgeable. Was OK for just an overnight stop while passing through. Site was very difficult to get into. Some sites looked very trashy. Could hear Hwy noise all night. Using this park will depend on what you're looking for and what bothers you. There are no restrooms/showers. This is a mobile home park that is right off Hwy 178/bus 395 with overnight spots for RV's. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Dusty parking lot with lots of long term residents with dilapidated 30 year old rigs. Why would the city allow that?? No cable, no internet, but the other utilities okay. Sewer does not allow air tight connections because of no threads. No amenities. The fairgrounds may be going out of business? Sites are not well defined, so If you want to use a lot of space, you can. Did not like - will not go back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Friendly park and staff. Quiet. Dirt/gravel roads and sites that are mostly back to back hookups. In town for a couple of days and park filled our needs for a place in town to stay. A lot of long term residents. We would stay here again. Hints use the second gate from the south and the manager is in the South/East corner of park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Friendly staff - thanked us for stopping by. Many permanent residents. Very quiet, not sure if that would be the case when there are activities there as it is part of the fairground complex. A bit out of the way for overnighets passing through. Clean but like all desert parks, mostly gravel and dusty. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I don't normally like to say bad things about a park, but, THIS PLACE IS A DUMP! The park "manager" could barely stick her head out the door to tell me to "park it wherever". We could not locate a sewer hook-up site (which we paid for) so, without the assistance of any staff, we found an electric/water site. The place is over-run with long term, run down trailers. This is not an RV Park as advertised on their website. Walking the fairgrounds this morning and looking at the "trailer park" again, trying to form a better opinion of this place only confirmed that this is the most poorly run and managed public facility I have ever seen. There is not much to choose from in this area as far as RV Parks go so be careful if you choose to stay in Ridgecrest! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
