Love this park! Brand new, clean, quiet, and beautiful. Located just outside of small, historic Jackson, CA in the Sierra foothills. Friendly staff, and office is open until 8PM. We were in our 38ft motorhome with tow and had a pull-through site. Very wide, level, concrete sites with metal picnic table and wide grass strip. No shade because of young trees at site. Very quiet, clear skies at night (and day), and clean air. Good Wi-Fi and cable reception. Shuttle to casino stops by regularly each day. Beautiful, large clubhouse, ping pong table, outdoor BBQ for guests, and nice dog park area. Pool is heated year-round, has spa, lots of nice chaise chairs, and a couple of screened gazebos in the pool area as well. Jackson has a lot of gold mining history with cute shops and restaurants. Casino is also new, and several additional casino restaurants are being built. Ample parking at the casino in covered parking garage (free to park). General store located next to gas station where you can save 10 cents off per gallon with casino member card. We loved this park and plan on returning soon - it's a gem.
Park is in a very central location with easy commute to San Juan Bautista (cute little town), Hollister, Gilroy (good shopping & Costco), Watsonville, Monterey, and Santa Cruz. Quiet older park, well maintained, and although it's off of Hwy 101, we only heard the train occasionally: nice and quiet at night. Planned on staying 3 nights, but extended our stay for two more nights. Upon checkin we were told by the hosts (very nice folks), that we might stay longer so they moved us to a different pull-through site. Park is completely paved. Our spot had 1 tree and no green shrubs on either side to mark the spot, which other spots did have. We had long-term campers on either side of us. One had their "stuff" spread outside of their trailer, which looked a bit messy, but we had ample room for our two slideouts, and our un-hitched tow vehicle. A picnic table was at our site. Was looking forward to using the pool, but advised that the heater wasn't working and water was cold. Dog "run" was down a long, isolated dirt path that led to a clearing, but it was unlighted, and too scary to go to at night. No other designated dog area, but plenty of clean-up bags and trash containers available. Putting greens and shuffle board on site. Basketball hoop. Two large grass areas but not fenced. Poor or non-existent Wi-Fi, but good cable TV service. Little store with basics/wine/ice, and good variety of brochures on the dining and sightseeing in the area. Need a large, grassy, fenced, dog area. Pool table in "dated" club house, along with a Wi-Fi hotspot that worked better than at the RV site. $38.61 per night with Good Sam or AARP discount. No extra charge for our two dogs. Would stay here again, but would ask for a spot away from long-term campers.
We already left a review of our visit 2 - 8 Sept 2011, but forgot to give the overall rating - which we give it a 9. We'd give it a 10, but there was a bit of traffic noise from the highway that runs from Salem to the Oregon Coast. Other than that, it was just perfect!
Beautiful setting in local hills outside of Santa Paula. Surrounded by citrus groves and beautiful vistas. No cable TV, pool or spa. Wide, gravel, unlevel, pull-through spots w/shade and table, firering, light. Took quite an effort to get our 37ft rig level enough for safety and comfort. Not many pull-through spots. With KOA mbrship, we paid $42.30 plus $1.80 for an unlevel pull through spot, at the very entrance to the park, and we had reservations. Pricey for a place with no cable TV, pool, gravel spots, and charming, but very noisy peacocks crowing in the very early AM and all day. Weak Wi-Fi. Office closes too early: 5PM. Santa Paula is a nice little town, away from the hustle of Ventura. Nice in spring but gets hot in the summer. Lots of Kamping Cabins which look new. Pool is planned for future. Nice place to go hiking as there is a nearby stream and trails.
Quiet park, level pull throughs. Reasonably priced w/Good Sam discount. Several good restaurants in a cluster you can walk to. Good place when you are on the road and need a place to rest for the night. No pool, spa, table, or trees. Good Italian food closeby.
Beautiful park, surrounded by wineries and vineyards. Paved, level pull through which are double sites, but we didn't have anyone camping behind us. Pretty pricey, but very nice amenities. Pool, spa, clubhouse. There is a waterpark you can walk to, next to the RV park, but we couldn't tell if it was going to be open for the summer, or was for sale. Nice to have if you're camping with kids during the summer. Great WiFi, bbqs, table, good lighting, dog park, grass/small trees next to each spot. Well maintained. Very quiet. Would return again and stay longer next time.
Beautiful park, huge casino and grounds. Staff needs better training and to be more knowledgeable of the park and casino amenities. No Wi-Fi code given at check-in until we returned and requested it. Sewer hookup was locked and we just made it back to the office as they were closing to get it unlocked. We stayed for 4 nights with our son and our dog. $42 week rate, $52 for weekend rate. Charged extra for son (an adult), as well as for our dog, and $3 extra per day for a pull-through spot (w/AARP). Hard to read map of the RV park (poorly copied from their brochure). No table next to space. Small pool/spa for size of the RV park. The receptionist didn't know if the pool or spa were heated and ready to use, and didn't know anything about the casino as she'd never been in there. Spider webs on the patio furniture. Had to pay $10 ea. for card-key to get into the laundry room and pool area (refundable upon return of each card key). Only one pet area and it wasn't fenced. Couldn't tell if the pet was supposed to do business among the horseshoe pits or in the grass area where an outdoor BBQ was being constructed. That being said, we enjoyed Temecula and the casino immensely. Don't stay over a holiday weekend as they really jack up the price (like $150 or more for a pull-through per night!).
Highest price we paid on our trip to SoCal, but a beautiful, top notch, park. Lush landscaping, pool, fountain, paved level pull-throughs. Very quiet and relaxing. Great fenced dog park, with lawn and landscaping. Beautiful office. Would stay longer next time. Great for golfers as park is next to a golf community of fine homes. Easy parking and set up for our 37-foot rig and toad.
We stayed here 3 nights total on a trip from Oregon to CA and return. Beautiful park, top notch. Just a tiny amount of freeway and train noise. Fenced dog area could use a shade tree and perhaps a patch of lawn. Park is nicely landscaped, table next to pull-through spot, good lighting. Son used the pool, spa, and sports court (basketball). There is also a putting green. Very nice lodge building. Escorted to our spot. After-hours security code required at front gate. Good Wi-Fi and cable. Can easily walk to nearby strip mall with larger grocery store. Would definitely return again.
Quiet RV park set amongst orange groves. Enjoyed the level, wide, long, gravel spot and the smell of orange blossoms. Didn't use the pool (no spa) or bathrooms (only there for one night). No table next to spot. Got directions from front desk to closest WalMart/stores/fast food, etc. and it took us over 30 minutes to get there with those directions, using back roads through farm fields, when we could have just got back on the freeway about a mile away, and been there in 10 minutes or less. Nice, quiet park (except for a few early AM train noise), well maintained, away from freeway and city noise. Poor Wi-Fi reception (1 bar). $2.00 discount on RV park price if you pay cash.
