If you like tent campers, pop-ups, 5th wheels, RVs, lots of kids, and dogs all mixed together, this is the place for you. While they have separate tent campsite area they also allow them to intermingle with RVs with many sites having multiple tents; this was not a good mix in our opinion. The kids were good and dogs controlled and only a few owners did not pick up after their pets. This park has a private beech 3/8ths mile long which is nice except it was not well kept up with lots of leftover trash from the day before. Also, they allow tent camping on the beech. The interior roads were gravel, narrow, and the RV sites were gravel as well. There were some grassy areas but they were reserved for tent campers only. Staff were friendly but failed to deliver firewood ($8) as promised. The park is old and rather unsightly just having become a KOA. They have a long way to go to come up to the standards that we are use to for KOAs, and they are not inexpensive. They do have a little store, but no clubhouse. That they don't have cable TV or Wi-Fi capability is rather retro. There is absolutely no cell phone service and of the two public phones provided, only one worked. We stayed a week but will not return again

Owners/operators were great and went out of their way to please our Good Sams group. It's an old park with lots of gravel around the RV concrete slabs, some grass. Sites vary from shady to almost no shade. It is hot in the sun where we were. Power is a problem for them and they even give you a sheet of paper with what not to run; they even suggest that you run the refrigerator on gas. My electricity monitor confirmed the low power output. With just the refrigerant, TV and a light or two it was near marginal. During the day, just the AC brought it all the way down to the power warning display . . . not good! Being surrounded by the fairgrounds, County Corp Yard and residential area does not give it the woodsy Quincy feel. Though the Fairgrounds has a swimming pool (Rvers can use it) a noisy event can be a distraction if not an annoyance. Go back? Not likely . . ., there are too many other RV campgrounds in the area that are more in keeping with the forested get away vacation. They claim to have wireless for your PC like many parks. But the signal is so low, it is not likely that you will be able to connect.

This is an older KOA. The staff, though rather gruff in a refreshing way, were accommodating. Sites are okay . . . gravel pads with some grass and RV hookups that were dated but okay as well. There are lots of trees around proving shade ... it is in a very pastoral setting and relaxing for a one night stay. We would not stay longer. Compared to other KOA's it's over-priced, and needs some updating, but served our immediate needs as we were tired. We would not stay there again as we found a better place north of there.

This is a four star operation! We were very impressed with everything . . .the setting and view of the trees, the sites, the indoor pool and sauna, clubhouse and the staff. Although this is owned by the Casino, it is across the freeway (about a mile away), and does not have that "Casino" feel. Really this is more of a RV Resort than just a park. Some of the side benefits are that if you do get a "Player's" card at the Casino, you will get a 10% discount off your day stay at the RV Park in addition to a discount for KOA membership (Maybe others). Also you get $.03/gallon off on their gasoline. Oh yes, the Casino provides 24/7 pickup at you RV spot and takes you to the Casino and back to your spot. There are many fine restaurants at the Casino that are very reasonable . . . so you don't have to gamble. We did and won, too! This is a must stop for us from now on.

We stayed here for 8 days over Memorial Day weekend. Even though we were a little late in booking our reservations, staff went out of their way to get us a spot with full hookups with out our having to move. The Park is great, staff very pleasant and accommodating. Lots of trees, birds, elk and flora fauna to enjoy. On the weekend, they serve breakfast for a nominal fee. It is over a hill from the ocean, but close, so one does not get all the wind, Although they say that all sites have WiFi, that's not a reality. I could only get it in the laundry room and even that was a very weak signal. Really not much to complain about though. We've been there before and we will return.

One of the best RV parks that we have stayed at. The road is paved throughout and every site has pine trees with pea gravel. Some sites have a concrete deck pad. Every day, the sites are raked, debrois including left cigaret buts are removed. It is so neat and quiet among the many tall pine trees and the sites are spacious so that you are not right up to your neighbor. The river is pretty puny this time of year and a mossy but nice to look at. On the negative side, and there is not much negative, the showers do cost $.50 for five minutes they claim it's to cut down on their septic affluent (Really though your RV shower goes to the same septic system) and the bathroom only accommodates two each gender. They claim to have WiFi but unless you have a site right next to the office don't count on it serving you; one fellow had to sit at a picnic table right next to the office to get it to work. There were some young kids there but except for bike riding (their own) there was no activity for them, nor play ground. All and all though, it's a definite must go back for us.

While Best Western provides adequate Motel Rooms for rent they should have stayed out of the RV Park business. This Rv park is attached to the Motel. It is totally asphalt and conctrete. The AC Power is deploreable. The receptionist didn't have a clue about the park and directed us to an occupied spot. It is clear that this park caters to permanent residents as evidenced by the long term sites being trashy and cluttered. People let their dogs run lose. They suggest reservations probably due to the size of the park and the number of long term residents. I say skip it. We made a mistake!

There is nothing to see in Wendover so it really is just a place to spend the night. This park is old, but well maintained. Staff were friendly. There are trees but not enough to really afford much sun and it was so hot. Although they advertise WiFi, it really is not powereful enough to reach our 100 ft away as it fades in and out, so do not count on that. The one thing nice is that the Casino's provide a free shuttle service to their facilities and there are some wonderful placed to eat inside.

If you have never been there don't go. It is hot, dusty and gravel throughout. Our site's power registered 105 Volts AC with a meter. This can fry an AC or Microwave if one or both are running. A staff member checked and confirmed that. He said it was due to our AC running; clearly he did not want to admit that the park was underpowered . . . or at least our site.

This was a nice park. Sites have chairs, tables but are mostly gravel. It was hot but the power supplied was adequate to keep the AC on. There are grassy areas that you can walk to. Staff and there are a lot of them, are friendly and helpful. Each morning the cook all you can eat pancakes for $1 and have bacon and buffalo sausage as well for a bit more. They have family events like Bingo and Ice cream socials. It was pleasant and a great embarkation point for Cody and Yellowstone.

This is a dirty, dusty, wind-blown park with staff that are not too friendly. Wind kept us from using our awning and it was hot. Our site was littered with cigarette butts and very uninviting. However the Cable was great and the WiFi worked though slowly. The trees are more bushes and do not afford the much need shade. We will not go back.

Power is good and WiFi worked but was weak at times. Lots of grass but not on individual sites. Park is full of large mature trees. Sites are side by side so you share a picnic table with your neighbor. It is an Old park but well maintained. There is a lake with beach for swimming. There is also a recently placed storm shelter. Staff was friendly. A good overnight place.

Quite a nice stop-over particularly if you are sports people. Cabela's store is a short walking distance away and it will take you a couple of hours just to enjoy the store. Sites have grass and small trees; gravel prevails otherwise. They recommend reservations and believe them. They were turning people away the night we stayed.

There are lots of trees to view, although many of the trees on the site are too small for much shade. It is truly a beautiful park with several terraced site locations. Some grass at sites. Quite a ways off the road but worth the trip. Staff were friendly and the store on location was well stocked with food, equipment but way too many boutique things.

Great Park. Don't be fooled by the block of driving to get there (Shantytown). Not only is the park along side of the Missouri River, but it has a great restaurant along side of it (Beef Eaters). It is a very modern park with grass areas along side of each site. Staff is great and you have free shuttle service to St Charles, a very old, quaint town with lots of shops and restaurants. If you are into Botiques, you'll love this town; my wife did. The Museum is not worth the time, but you guys must visit the Cigar store. Word of caution though, do not leave your awnings up; nasty winds come up suddenly. Two RVers lost their awnings in one day . . . ripped them right off, struts and all. This was the only park in our 5 week sojourn that had excellent WiFi service. Granted you had to pay for it (~$7 per week) but it was reliable with great speed. Staff were very friendly. It's a must go to again park.

This is an old park that sets miles away from towns and is surrounded by farms. The bathrooms were well worn but well maintained. This is one of the KOA's that say the have WiFi that actually does, though is sometimes faded out for a few minutes. The owners/managers were friendly. There are lots of trees wide open spaces for walking and a lot of grass, the park itself is surrounded by row crops. Sites are side by side and you may have to share a picnic table with your neighbor. It's definitely a good stop over. We stayed three days doing family business nearby.

Staff are very friendly, Sites are large with grass, some trees. There is a swimming pool, petting zoo, playground, but best yet, they serve the best dinners for next to nothing. This is the fifth time we have stayed there in several years and it just keeps getting better.

Staff were not the friendliest ever, but the RV Campground had many large trees that helped overcome the heat and improved the appearance at first. It was a dirty, dusty, gravelled park. Our site was littered with trash, cigaret butts and dumped BBQ charcoal. There had obviously not been any attemp to tidy the site. Many sites were not close to level; we had to use several blocks in addition to our hydraulic lifts to get it level. They advertise WiFi and charge $3 for it but like many KOA parks the signal was so weak at our site (200' from the office and when I tested even right next to the office) it does not work. They did refund the $3. We will not go back there again.

A very nice park. We stayed three days. While it was very warm in the day time there wee plenty of large tree that shaded most sites. The nights were cooler. Staff was friendly. Although they advertise WiFi it was too weak to work at our site. I checked throughout the park with a Canary Wireless WiFi locator and could not get a signal anywhere in the park strong enough to work.

This is a classy RV park. The office is more like a lobby of a fancy casino, the store is well stocked, there is a restaurant inside, game room and three pools. A shuttle takes tenants to the strip. While we were there, the showers were inoperable . . . they could not be used. Days were about 105 degrees. Be careful as a wind comes up in the afternoon that can strip your awning off if out.

Large RV park, with pool that was very crowded. It was extremely hot. It was just okay for the night. The female clerk was particularly grumpy. The worst thing about the park was the power. The Voltmeter registered less than 110 Volts AC. That means if you ran your AC (A must) you should not run your Microwave as the power drain could blow out either or both.

Park is terraced. The upper level sites have electric, water and sewer hoop-ups, the lower level does not have sewer hook-ups. We stayed with a camping group in the lower level and had access to the clubhouse exclusively for our group. It is a full service clubhouse making it ideal for getting together. The swimming pool is a class "A" act and you will enjoy that. Management was very friendly. You will not be able to get TV with your batwing antennae as it is in a valley. A satellite might work if you can locate a clear shot through the many great trees. But really we did not miss TV!

A very nice park. Though small and rather cramped, it is well landscaped with a grass area adjacent to each rig's concrete pad. This was our second time there in 3 years. It is close to Monterey, Santa Cruz and Carmel. The park is along side of a harbor and fishing boats coming in in the evening often sell fresh fish to customers right of their boats. All prepared for the pan or fridge right in front of you. Also from that harbor one can take fishing and sight seeing excursions for a fee. Three very nice restaurants are close by. The park list cable hook-ups, but this is rather a sham. Each of our rigs received very few cannels with very poor quality. We did better with our batwing antennae. Wi-Fi would be a plus but there are no plans for that.

We just love this place. There are plenty of sites and easy to get to. A huge Chevron station makes it easy to fuel even the biggest RVs, including diesel rigs. The park is mostly paved but with lots of room for the big shade trees at each site and the view of the surrounding hills is cathartic. A small stream runs down the side and it was very active during our stay in March. While the park does not advertise WiFi, it is available through a third party vendor locally. There are several very nice restaurants right there plus a huge theme park that is used for various event throughout the year.

Great park. Restrooms were clean, Staff were very helpful. Nice setting and only 30 minutes to Redding and closer to Mt Shasta. Grocery store is within two blocks and a fine restaurant also. We were there in March 2006 and the weather was cold, snowed even but did not stick. Last year, at the same time the temperature was in the 80's and kids were swimming in the well maintained pool. You will like it! Wi Fi would make it a 10, I agree!

Only 14 of the sites have sewer hookups. This is a very old RV Park, but quite nice, and cheap. It is a Good Sams Park. The restrooms are clean and well maintained. The advertised "General Store" that is part of the park is a joke. Really there is no store, but there are real stores close by. The RV television "batwing" antenna pulls in all the major stations well. The park is laid out in two concentric circles. To park, one drives the outer ring and pulls through facing the inner ring; one exits via the inner ring. Ingress and egress are very easy as all are pull throughs. On exit, there is a dump station that is convenient for those without a full hookup. There is a club room, with cooking facilities and tables that served our Good Sams club of 14 rigs and 28 people well, crowded, but well. It is definitely a great stop for an overnighter. There is really not too much to do around here in the winter. Chico is 25 miles away and an Indian Casino is a short ways away.

Well off Hwy99, quiet with some really nice sites close to the Sacramento River. Some sites, however, butt up against the club house and are not very good. Park is old, manager says he intends to fix it up. Never did get to go in the office. Every time we approached the Mgr came out and talked to us outside; we assume it is a mess inside. Bathroom/Showers are old but clean. Shade trees are everywhere. The Park has no store. The park has a boat launch for small fish ing rigs and access to the river for bank fishermen. Each site has cable TV hookup that has long gone defunct. RV Power Antenna gets about 4 channels well. (Including ABC, CBS). We will return if for no other reason, for the setting. It is very peaceful.

Really a nice Park. We have been there several times and always make it a place to stay in that area. Although they claim to have WiFi it really does not work well and when it does, if it does, only in certain RV sites. That aside, The park has trees for shade is terraced and the restroom are probably cleaner than most peoples home restrooms. Park staff are very nice. Even though it is within eye sight of the freeway, there is very little noise associated with it. They do charge for dogs ($2 a night, I think, but not for cats).

The Park has changed ownership again. It is no longer a C2C park. Really, it is far too expensive for what you get. The bathroom-showers were very run down, old with mildew and generally not inviting. While there is no sewer hookups, one can dump before leaving the park at a convenient on-location dump site. If you stay a while, they provided, at cost, a honey-bucket dump at your site. Some trashy looking permanent sites detract from the ambiance. Most Cell phones will not work in area. The one thing going for it is the area. It is beautiful with Sycamore trees, pine and much flora fauna. Bear creek runs through it and it is within 15 minute trail walk to the Yuba River, a great trout catch and release spot. There is a swimming hole for kids but it gets pretty mossy in the summer. The new management promised great improvements and they are needed to justify the cost. Not too impressed at present except for the area.

A very well groomed RV park with, some trees, along side of but removed from the Columbia River. (No access from RV Park.) You will pay for a shower ($0.75 for 2.5 min), which is a nuiusance, but the facilities are top notch. Easy access gas staion right next door if you need RV fuel coming or going. If coming from the Oregon side of the River you will cross a toll bridge so narrow that they make you fold your side mirrors in to avoid smacking others coming the opposite way. A Railroad track runs just feet from the park and trains run about every 20 minutes to a couple hours apart and blow their horns. That did not keep us from sleeoing but might be a consideration for other travelers.

Really a nice park. It is just far enough from the ocean to not get the wind and fog but close enough to get to it in about 15 minutes. It is heavily wooded with landscaped sites and terraced in one section and flat grassy areas in another. We stayed three nights, two on the terraced section which had sewer and one night in the grassy area with no sewer (we extended our stay, but our original site was reserve by another for the third night). Lots of activities for small children and you will hear them chirping happy sounds as they play. It is a very quiet place removed from all traffic noises and the owners shut down all activities at 10pm. This was a keeper on our list.

Well, if you like the cool weather in the hot summer, the sounds of the ocean and seals at your RV site, a pleasant atmosphere and friendly staff, you will love this Park. Our only regret was that we could not stay more than one night. It is down in our book as a "Must Return" spot.

Well shaded spots. Clean facitilies and friendly employees. Nice atmosphere. But, don't go there unless you are willing to burn up you AC, Microwave or other electrical appliances. The power is poor; it metered at less than 110, often hovering around 103. The manager said that it is a very old park and the electrical has never been upgraded. The sewer conection are of the old cast iron 90 degree above ground type. So if you want to use your modern connections forget it. You have to take the flange off and stuff your sewer hose loosely into their antiquated system...messy! There are a lot of permanent residents there in dilapidated trailers, LP tanks and trash around their sites. While the ambiance is great, if you close your eyes to the trashy sites, the power issue will keep me away in and of itself.

Being a computer buff I liked the fact that there is WiFi available. The park is very clean and well maintained. It is easy to find and access. It is close but not too close to good dining and recreation. The Managers were very pleasant. That said, I would not stay there again. Aside from the fact that it was HOT, the park is next to the freeway. Not only that, the freeway is actually slightly above the park level and it is a major truck freeway. The traffic noise is so bad that I could not hear what was being said across the picnic table; further, it was difficult to sleep at night because of the traffic noise. This park, through no fault of the owners is on my "do not return" list."

Really a great, clean park, but in full sun it was way too hot. The trees are new and small. When they grow the park will be more inviting. The worst feature was the wind. It was so windy every afternoon that it would blow over lawn chairs and made putting down the awning impossible and blew out the BBQ when trying to cook. Getting to the site required going through the heart of town and it was not easy to find. Would I go back? No, with the exception of an overnight stay if nothing else was available. Maybe it's better at a different time of year.

Just a great little place. Owner/manager is German. They put on a nightly dinner-show which is both entertaining and economical. The Owner is the MC, singer and quite a performer. There are lots of shaded RV spots and the park atmosphere is very country with deer and turkey about in the morning. We will definitely go back. Negatives... Owner had a shortage of employees that knew how to place RVs and he was unfamiliar with how some RVs cannot back up or make short U turns. Also Concrete pads were terribly short and could not accommodate our 31 one footer; that caused some leveling problems.
