This park is no frills but it's so cool to be able to pull straight in and face the Klamath River while watching the seals, boats and salmon float or swim by. The bathrooms,while old, were in excellent shape and clean, the hosts were wonderful and informative and the whale watching from the north hill of the mouth of the Klamath was awesome!
Calexpo is a great spot for a stop in Sacramento because there are very limited affordable RV parks in the area. Shame for such a large town to have so few parks that cater to large motorhomes. Rate reflects the monthly rate. Host are great, sites are roomy and power is what you would expect. All being centrally located so this is a plus.
Wow...it's nice to get lucky once in a while. Based on other reviews we booked this for the mid Jan to mid Feb and after being here for two weeks we are very happy. I love watching the rigs drive up and down Hwy 95 during the day but very quiet at night. The owners bend over backwards helping making campers comfortable. I have never attended so many camp activities as here...cards, board games, feeds and classes from music to tai-chi. Would be a 10 if there were more than one toilet bathroom for the whole campground but...hey, I can survive. Rate reflects monthly rate.
As another camper pointed out, curb appeal is not here but if you enjoy a the feeling of camping out with amenities this is your place. Camp in the pines with a fire pit by your side. Our first spot was not too level and electrical problems had me move to #3. This is the perfect spot for us, (40' coach): level and near restrooms. The added feature of having the hosts watch our dogs for a nominal fee plus a great deal of firewood for $5 bucks, beat out a pool or spa to us. Very clean restroom too.
Rate reflects the monthly. Stayed some of July and most of August. I reluctantly give this a 10 only because it only has 8 sites and I don't want the competition of trying next year to stay for two months. The owners are super nice folks that go out of their way to make your stay comfortable. Although you won't find cell service, this park has great and strong Wi-Fi from each of the sites.
Pay the extra and get the pull forward to the river (or lake as they call it). Restrooms are clean and the park was quiet...only complaint was a god awful smell sometimes in the morning from some industrial plant.
The main reason I rated this high was in comparison to what is available in the area. Hard to believe that a town this big has such limited RV parking. Sure, if you Google RV parking here you will get 6 or 7 parks that after visiting 5 or them found almost all were very old trailer or mobile home parks and all backed up to a freeway or hwy. So since we had to stay here for family CalExpo wasn't bad. Don't get me wrong...no resort here but felt safe, clean and easy parking. They have three area's to park in. The big cement area was popular but the grade here always leaves the front of the motor home jack way up. The gravel area is level, easy to maneuver the night lights made it like day time. We found the ten spots (where the host parks) level and were back-in's perfect for us. No amenities here but quite comfortable. Their laundry room sure could use an upgrade though.
My wife and I were very pleased with this RV park. The staff were very helpful when we pulled in. They have many trees and I asked if there was a site where my satellite would work. She moved some things around and gave us a perfect spot. This park was clean, quiet and safe feeling. This park is on our radar for a return trip.
Very happy that we usually check out a future spot we might stay and had the opportunity to do that with Lakeshore. This place is as one reviewer says, a dump. I would of been so mad had we booked and then drove up to it in our 40 foot motorhome based on other reviews and one obscure camp photo on their web site. Dirt and mud, unlevel and electrical boxes I'd be afraid to connect to. No thanks!
We enjoyed our stay at this SKP park, which was a first, for 10 days. This is a membership/owner type park and you are renting an empty spot who's owner is not present. Clean, well laid out, friendly and a host of activities if you wish to partake.
Avila Bay was a beautiful 6 day stop for us. We had to dry camp for two days until a spot opened up with hook-ups near the pier. While the view from dry camping was outstanding the traffic going in and out of the Diablo Nuclear Power plant was annoying. This is a very popular tourist area so there is not much privacy nor was it expected.
Sam’s Family Spa…We spent a month at this wonderful spot. The crew is first rate, knowledgeable, helpful and very friendly. While some complain about the wind in Desert Hot Springs it was not that big of a deal for us. We did have maybe 6 or 7 windy days during the February month. Occasionally you hear kids playing or riding their bikes…but that is the Family in “Sam’s Family Spa” The pool was always clean and warm at about 86 degrees then you have a choice of four mineral pools with increasing temps.

We camped for the first time over Thanksgiving holiday. Met family for dinner at the lodge and stayed at Watchmen rather than pay the $200 a night at the lodge. Our rate reflects a Senior Pass. Great campground with 50 amp hookups. No water or sewer but we can boondock it for 10 or more days on one tank of water. Quiet, clean and the host kept everything in order.
Well, I hope it's not all down hill from here. This is our first RV stay as retirees and it's wonderful here. Wish we could afford to stay longer than 1 week but hey, life is such. Bathrooms, showers and pool area are awesome. Front desk ladies very helpful and friendly. I would have given this place a 10, other than the fact they charge for Wi-Fi. I think for the price they charge it should be included. Stayed in #335, a wonderful site.
