A lot of work went in to carving out this campground on a hill between trees. The entry road is narrow and a 180 degree turn has to be made at the office. Access to the pull-through sites is back down another very narrow road. The sites are terraced as they step down the hill. To be close to level at the rear of the site I needed to unload the car and disconnect the dolly, as the front of the site dropped off. This is a no phone zone but the Wi-Fi was OK. For the TV cable to connect bring a female/female gender changer as the cable end is male. The friends we met here were in a tent and this park had the combination of sites for all needs. A nice park on a hill in the trees and as long as you are ready for tight and narrow even big rigs can fit in.
The park changed hands 6 months ago and they are working on repairing years of deferred maintenance. I was told that there were problems with the water, power, or sewer in over 80% of the sites but most have been corrected. The restroom is available with a keypad 24 hours when the office is closed. The staff was much friendlier than in the past and was concerned that we had a good experience. Boom Town security does patrol the park regularly and is available on call 24 hours. The looks of this bare bones park has changed little over the 8 years when we stay in September but we do not use it as a destination park. The easy access and distance from the noise of I-80 works for our needs.
We needed a Vancouver site for a week and after spending 3 nights at another RV Park we moved here. Long pullthru or double wide back in sites with plenty of room for the car caddy and car. All sites are level gravel with paved access roads. I-5 runs along the west side of the park, but a sound wall keeps the noise down to a point that it did not keep us up at night. All shopping and conveniences are within 1/4 mile and the park has a much safer feel than the other. The Wi-Fi worked well and all local TV stations were strong on the antenna. Not a destination park, but more than adequate for a place to explore the wineries in the area. No pool or kids play area, but a 3 mile long walking trail along a river less than 1/2 mile away.
This is an older park with some transient sites, but mostly long term residents. Not as bad as a homeless encampment but nowhere near an RV resort. The Wi-Fi works close to the office only and the cable TV is very poor. Our antenna pulled in all local HD stations, but again no cable sports, weather channel or others. Virtually no place for dogs to go as most grass is posted - No Pets. Most sites are narrow and short with a few near the office a little longer and wider. There is little road noise but every car/truck that drives in the park has a modified exhaust system so it is louder than stock. All shopping is close and a number of wineries are within 10 miles. If you don't ask for much you will not be disappointed. The park is cash/check only which should tell you something and we left after 3 days after paying for a week.
I gave this park a 9 because it is new, has wide paved access roads and level paved sites. All sites are 12ft wide with 12ft of grass between pull through spots and 18ft between the back in sites around the outside. We are 56ft long and there was plenty of length to the site. This was a perfect place to spend a night on the way between here and there. Do not look for a destination park as there is no playground, camp store or pool, just a clean easy to use park. One downside is the lack of any convenience or grocery store within walking distance but there are lots of fast food and family eating places near. Look for exit 1A at the exit of the toll way from either direction which is only a few hundred feet on the right after the toll booths.
An OK stop for one night, but little more. The place was once nicely kept up and pretty but little has been done lately as large weeds intrude on access roads, the patio area has seen better days and only one overworked guy is on duty who locks the office doors when out in the park. The pull throughs are water/elect only which works for one night, the power and water was good and the site was level. There is no TV and my computer air card did not connect to the internet; however, our AT&T phone was good. It is next to I-40 but below grade so the noise was not bad. Take exit 140 and 3 miles west along the frontage road, easy to find.
There are 72 full hook up pull through sites available. Sites 57-72 are 40ft or less in length but all of the rest are 60ft plus. All pads are paved, reasonably level and wide enough for slides both sides. There is some freeway noise but is reduced the further west your site is located. The park was full on a Saturday late in Feb but only ¼ full Sunday. I reserved on line and my CA Distinguished Veterans Pass reduced the $60 park fee to $0. This park is much better than the San Mateo State campground just south of here on the other side of the freeway which is back in only, no sewer and the same price.
This is a park suspended in time. We had the same premium site as last year on the same weekend in September, same grumpy guy in the office, same price, everything. The large patio, additional table and chairs, fire pit and gas BBQ in addition to the picnic table was perfect for entertaining guests. Last year the site to our left was unusable due to a water spigot which had been backed into and wrapped in caution tape. This year nothing had changed as the same spigot has yet to be repaired. That was nice since it left more room for our guests to park. The park showers were the worst of the 5 parks we visited according to the couple who rode with us. This place is nothing fancy but is next to a real Nevada casino with a decent convenience store at the gas station. Any real shopping and services are 4-5 miles east toward Reno which makes walking out of the question. This is not a destination KOA with lots to do for the kids but it does offer an easy to use park for big rigs when most of your time is spent some other place.
What a gem of a park only 3 hours north of Orange County for a first night on the road away from LA. Large level sites are small gravel and an easy access close to Hwy 99 but far enough away where the traffic cannot be heard. Everything worked and there was a nice pool and public area next to a full service restaurant and bar. Our gueses said the the showers and dressing area was the best of the 5 places we stayed on the trip. We cook in the rig but the beer battered onion rings and stuffed mushrooms for an appetizer were too much to resist. The park is owned by RV’ers and run by nice employees who offer quick service with an easy to access propane fill. This is a great place in Bakersfield of all places when going from here to there.
This is a great place for the fishing and hunting enthusiast but not a destination RV resort. The spaces are narrow on gravel with raised concrete pads for the table provided. If you are towing anything it will run over the edge of the pad on the way out of the spot. Not bad but be aware of the short pull through spaces. Everything worked on the hookups with lots of cable stations. We use this park as an easy one night stop between Reno and Orange County.
We have stayed here over a dozen times in the last 5 years and it continues to be a very nice park with one exception. Their power cannot handle any hot weather. We arrived at 2pm in the heat and fired up both airs on the 50 amp plug. Our Progressive power management system shut us down as the power sagged below a safe level for the AC. I noticed other rigs were running generators so I went to the office to see what was going on. Their answer was to not run both AC's as the park could not handle the load when it is hot. We followed their lead until later in the day. The following day we were working one air through the power management system when the whole park shut down. For a nice park they are unable to offer the power usage expected for rigs of any size. Beware when you are here and it is hot.
We have enjoyed going here over the last 4 ½ years during which time no major changes were made. No sites have been added but upgrades have been made to most of the slightly smaller back in sites along the south and east edges. Cement pads for tables along with a white plastic trellis to separate the table from the next site have been added along with a price increase for the now premium locations. Also some of the corner sites with larger grass areas are surrounded by a low white fence and there is a patio cover over the new table cement area. These are now known as luxury sites. Formal concrete picnic areas have been added with a dozen tables and gas bar-b-q along with some covered cabanas around the pool. A good sized fenced in grass dog park has also been added. As of May 1 the prices are $45-65 during the week and $55-75 weekends. Since this park is associated with a casino and other adult activities such as a golf course and wineries it is not intended as a family destination as there is little for children to do. The park continues to be well run, friendly, regularly patrolled and worth the money if this is your kind of a park. We will be back for our next scheduled wine pick up.
There may be over 700 sites available but of that number about 100 are worth asking for. Call first and confirm sites on the upper two levels with numbers above 414 and going up to 559. The pull-thru sites are over 100’ long and the back in are all more than double wide. All are level with concrete pads and the view of the casinos below at night is great. It is almost ½ mile from the casino entrance to the upper level but the free shuttle runs 24 hours and is wheelchair accessible. There is no need to park on gravel in narrow sites if you know what to ask for. Prepare for wind most of the time and bring some kind of a mat to cover the gravel which makes up what is not concrete. Watch for the specials and prices are as low as $89/week. Also for cable TV bring a F/F adapter as the cable connection provided is male. My Verzion computer air card worked well up top but was worthless in the casino parking lot below where many dry camp. For a comfortable place to park in the middle of the desert the top levels are hard to beat at less than the cost of a football bet.
The rate reflects an end patio site with shade, gas BBQ, additional seating and above ground fire ring. We entertain friends during the Air Race weekend and the additional space is worth the price. There is little improvement in the looks of the park beyond the end sites over the last four years. Office hours are shorter and a number of sites were unusable due to damaged water or electric connections. Our site was level with easy access with the car in tow. The dog run is all dirt but good size. The park is close to I-80 but behind and below the casino from the road noise and cannot be heard. The transcontinental train tracks run through the valley below the park but all that is heard is an occasional whistle and are not loud. I like the out of town location but if you do not have a car there is nothing within walking distance. A large Chevron convenience store near the casino is the only choice for anything you forgot. Truckee is just up the hill on I-80 and Lake Tahoe another 12 miles which makes this the location we like and will be back next year.
The pads are long and level, but so narrow that the stairs extend out into the ground cover. A note in the office said they are going to widen the pads. The hookups are located at the very beginning of the site and makes the reach to the sewer very long if you are a motorhome towing a car. The sites on the side closest to the freeway do get some road noise but the rest of the park is quiet. Access to the park from the freeway is easy and navigating to the sites offers no problems. And yes, the puppy loved the dog park. We will stay here again.
The $20 included a $1 charge for cable and included 25ft of cable on the electric post to hook to the RV. There are 17 sites set aside for short term stays. They are wide, flat and crushed gravel with a couple of trimmed mature trees down around site 11. This is a perfect spot in the middle of nowhere for a brief stop. One word of warning is that if the wind is from the west the place will have the aroma of 10,000+ cattle in several very large feed lots on the west side of town. We were lucky to have a wind from the north and east as we stayed here on two nights a week apart.
Make up your mind what kind of an RV park you are looking for before you book here. If you want a destination park that is pretty with nice grounds and lots for the kids to do, then you better stay away. We wanted a place to park the rig while we spent most of our time with friends and relatives in the area and this was the ideal spot. We wanted big rig access, 50 amp service, a level cement pad and that is what we got. All roads are very dusty gravel with numerous ruts, but at 10 mph they are passable. The turn for the entrance from the main road K-7 is not marked in advanced and at 60 mph you better know where it is or you will not make the turn. Watch out for a very large pothole in the middle of the road just off K-7, it will swallow even a large wheel. The park is well off the main road and close to I-70 but far enough away that the noise is not noticeable even on a warm night with the windows open. The tent only area is much closer to the Interstate and may be affected. There are no R/R tracks nearby which adds to the quiet. My AT&T cell and computer air card worked well to keep in touch. Office hours are strange, closed 2 hours over lunch and on weekends. They will leave a map of the facility with your assigned spot if you have a reservation. An item of importance is a nice storm shelter across from the office. The park was less than 1/3 full in early June during the week we stayed. If you are looking for a lot of nothing this is the place for you.
This is a mature park built prior to rigs with slide outs. We were as far to the right as the curb would allow and missed the pedestal on the other side by less than 1”. Sites are level so nothing was needed once the legs were down. The trees and bushes made a good wind break so the 25mph winds were not a bother. Friendly people in the office and the resident dog “Bud” lead you to your site on the south half of the park not used by long term residents. There is a pond adjacent to the south edge used to irrigate the almond groves with a large squeaky pump running 24 hours. It was not a problem with the windows closed but just don’t be the closest to the noise. The place is close to I-5 but the highway noise does not intrude. It makes for a nice stop halfway between here and there.
If you grew up on a family farm with a herd of cattle, sheep, goats and chickens this place will bring back memories. The same barnyard aroma and accompanying flying pests go right along with the animals. This KOA has pens near the office with goats, sheep and chickens for the campers to get close to along with a heard of sheep in a small pasture next to the entrance road. Not connected to the KOA but all along two sides of this large park is pasture land for a couple of herds of cattle who make themselves known. The first three days it was in the 80’s and the aroma got pretty ripe with lots of flies. Our last three days were cool, cloudy and wet. No smell or flies. So plan your stop here when it is cool. The park has nice facilities, a large dog park with many paved pull through sites in the short term area of the south half of the park. Leveling may be a challenge as the park is built on a rolling hillside and even when they try hard to grade the sites there is a still lot of slope to work with. The staff is friendly and the highway is far enough away so it isn’t noticeable. We came here for the wine country and the location worked out well. If the park were an island I would give it an 8 or 9. But as a destination park for the enjoyment of a family the surroundings do not make it enjoyable.
During the year since our last visit it looks like most all of the improvements begun last year have been completed. There are four rows of long term sites on the north end of the park which have not been touched but are not an eyesore and are out of the way. The sites in the 300 section on the south end were dirt/weeds and lumpy last year with some intruding trees. No more. All have been leveled with either cement or crushed rock and have well cared for new grass between. Also there are new hookup posts. All sites now have a textured cement area for a picnic table and the trees have either been removed or trimmed high enough so they are not in the way of awnings and slides. The 5 rows of no hookup sites on a large grass area also have a picnic table for each. A fitness center has been added with 6 new stepper, treadmill and bike machines. The aircard for the laptop worked well here. Next to the dog park is a dog washing station with a large elevated basin, warm water and tie downs. The park was full but there was no noise at night at least in our end of the park. The common areas were kept clean and trash picked up. There are also recycle bins stationed throughout the park.
This is the sixth time we have stayed here in the last 24 months and the facility has remained clean, well maintained, with frequent tribal security patrols and friendly casino shuttles. There are 25 pull through sites and most of the rest are long enough for 45 footers. The concrete pads are wide enough for the rig and tables and chairs without needing to use the grass areas between sites. Bring your own table as none are provided. I did not try the WiFi as my AT&T air card worked fine. Gas, diesel and propane are available at the 24 hour station across the parking lot on the way back to Pechanga Rd. There are 2 dedicated big rig lanes for diesel well away from the main station. The overflow lot near the gas station is used by trucks and RV’s and their generators can be heard on quiet nights from the two rows nearest that side of the park. The park has been here long enough for some of the young trees between the sites to intrude over the pads below 13 feet above the ground. Trees are pretty but not when the wind scraps the limbs against the side of the slide. As one guy told me when he got off the casino shuttle, the diesel cost him $75, the parking was $100 and penny slots were $250.
For a non holiday weekend in mid March the park was at near capacity. The only open spots were a couple of the gravel pull through and a dozen short gravel back ins on top nearest to busy Hwy 46. The park is popular with groups and most of the pull through sites alternate direction so the entrances face each other. Our premium concrete site on the lower level was not very wide as the steps extended out on to the grass. On my walks around the park it looked like the hook ups for some of the pull through sites are on the wrong end if you are towing anything. Then there was a young tree on each end of the grass medium which prevented either rig from using their awning. Pretty perhaps but not good in the summer when it can get quite warm here and an awning is needed. The park is pet friendly and during our 5 nights there all of the campers observed the rules about picking up after them and on a leash. The office has puppy treats and welcomes a daily visit from the pets. As one camper told me when he walked back from the winery next door, his diesel cost him $75, the stay cost $100 and the wine was $250. We were here 2 ½ years ago and wish we could have stayed longer this time. We will be back.
This is a KOA property and was sold long ago by the owners of Circus Circus. For access to the strip, and only 3 miles from Downtown this is exactly where I want to be. The location is on the north end of the strip within walking distance to the Sahara and Riviera casinos across from Circus. If you do not have a toad the monorail runs from the Sahara south to the MGM with an easy walk to the rest of the strip casinos from 5 stops in between. Cost for a day pass is $12.00 and there are double-decker busses “The Duece” which run the entire strip and into downtown for $5.00 per day. The Wi-Fi is strong which allows me to work during the day and play at night. We are self contained so cannot rate many of the facilities. The people are friendly and the well stocked store/office is open from 6am to 11pm. Camping it is not, but this is Vegas and for the cost of a cheap strip room we have a nice one bedroom condo that is the equivalent to a suite with a kitchen. Most sites are pull through and the park has easy access from the I-15 without having to drive the strip. Leave the pets and children at home as the place is not pretty or a destination park for a vacation but it is convenient to one of the greatest adult destinations in the world. The best time to visit is when the temperature is tolerable from mid October to May. During the hot season the park power and your AC may not be able to handle the heat.
Each RV is required to dump the black tank at check in and is given a bottle of a non formaldehyde tank solution to use. The park is located on top of a ridge line which was leveled off and the hillsides around it shored up with cement blocks. The view is 360 degrees of rolling pine forests, deer and wild turkeys. A paved walking path runs around the outer edge of the park. The casino is a mile away, cannot be seen from the park and has a friendly shuttle running every 20 minutes. Next time we will spend several more days exploring the gold country, wineries and unique little shops of all kinds just down the road. Most spots are pull through with wide cement pads and even more grass between. A real gem.
This is the fourth time we have stayed here in the last 16 months and the facility has remained clean, well maintained, with frequent tribal security patrols and friendly casino shuttles. About 25% are pull through sites but the rest are plenty wide and long enough for 45 footers. The concrete pads are wide enough for the rig and tables and chairs without needing to use the grass areas between sites. Bring your own table as none are provided. The WiFi at G-5 was intermittent at best so I switched to my air card which had good coverage. Last time we were closer to the main building and the signal was better. There is construction equipment noise during the week from work on the main entrance road between Pechanga Rd and the RV park with more work on something beyond the South end of the park. Gas, diesel and propane are available at the 24 hour station on Pechanga Rd. There are 2 dedicated big rig lanes for diesel but they are away from the main station. An 18 hole golf course has just opened prior to the completion of an impressive club house. The basic rate for a motel room is $129.00 so the park charge is worth the price and the local vineyards took a lot more of our money than did the casino.
The narrow dirt/weed/grass sites on the north half of the park remain unchanged. In the year since our last visit they have removed many of the other narrow sites and replaced them with over 90 all new sites with a concrete pad or a level gravel pad. All of these new sites include a table on a concrete pad with wide new grass strips between the sites and new hookups. The premium sites in the 300 section on the south end of the park remain unchanged: dirt/grass but are wide and long enough for a toad. The playground equipment is all new and they put in a good sized dog play area and are making other improvements to the tent area. There are new Wi-Fi antennas with a strong signal where we were in the 300 section. More improvements continue to be made.
A very busy park which is sold out on weekends but less than ½ full during the week. This was our second 3-night stay in 2 months and like the clean and safe nature of the park. Fewer than ¼ of the sites are pull through but the size of the back in sites gave us enough room for a car caddy and the toad. The recently installed WiFi works well and the frequent casino shuttle bus stops saves a long walk to or from the casino. The Temecula winery district is only 5 miles away which makes for some happy tasting and buying. We will return in Nov.
A nice stop at the end of a long day with easy to access pull through sites on a large white gravel parking lot. If not for the electric boxes sticking up there is no demarcation between the roads and sites. Long term oil worker residents we in another area in the rear away from the travelers. I-80 was close but the noise did not intrude and there is an easy to use fuel stop at the same exit. Friendly staff, clean facility with a strong WiFi signal. Not a destination location but very good for a stop along the way
A quiet park well behind the casino with level cement pads and wide sites with grass between. No shade as the trees are young. No roads, train tracks or airports to be heard. The park is clean and well secured with a new strong WiFi system via antennas at each of the 2 bath houses. The $20 rate was after a $5 discount for having a casino card and they gave me that rate even before I got the card. Friendly staff and a casino shuttle run by the security patrol in small SUV's. If more than 3 or 4 need a lift they make 2 trips and do not accept tips. The fuel stop in front of the casino has 3 truck lanes for diesel. I am told that there is a small dirt race track within ear shot that runs Sat night programs and can be loud. We were away until late on Sat so do not know how loud. Spent 6 nights here and will stay again next time.
A wide spot on the road between here and there for a few hours rest but this KOA has little more going for it. The access road from the city street is past a busy Flying J truck stop and very rutted. Once in the park there is nothing but a small pasture between you and I-70. Our site was level but just long enough for our 56" length. The park felt safe with no traffic once people were parked. The WiFi worked well and after a long day on the road a Pizza Hut just outside the gate saved us from cooking that night.
A nice park among the trees located on a slope above I-40. Easy to find with helpful staff to guide you to your site. Our site was just wide enough for the slide and table but am glad no one was next to us. Many of the sites have been terraced but are far from level. With blocks our rear wheels were off the ground. Our site was located on the far side away from the freeway but the commercial truck traffic was a constant drone all night long. Also the main east/west railroad corridor for freight runs through the valley where the whistle sound travels throughout the quiet park. Glad we were not in a tent. The park is family friendly with many activities to keep them busy. As a stop on the way our destination this location works well.
Nice clean, safe place to park for a short visit to the area. Narrow sites but long enough to park the toad when off the caddy. A new outdoor superstore is going in on the hill above the COG along with a large truck stop. But the slope of the hill is high enough so that it will not be seen from the COG. About 1/3 of the sites are 50 amp with strong Wi-F included. Anything left outside will be wet when they water over night. We were here over the same weekend as last year and noticed little change since KOA took over other than the higher rates. Next year we will return.
Well located next to a new home development over a mile from Hwy 99 and railroad tracks with 1/3 of sites pull through. Friendly staff, grass between sites, trash picked up at the site if left out by 9am. Park was less than 1/2 full on a Friday night and reservations were easy to arrange. Golf is included with the site so next time I will bring the clubs. Wi-Fi is strong and included. There are few nice places to stay between Bakersfield and Sacramento along old Hwy 99 but this is a gem.
