This definitely does not meet my expectation or definition of a resort RV park. It has zero resort amenities. It is owned by the heirs of John Wayne who are absentee landlords and rests on the 1950 laurels of The Duke. The campground offers little more than gravel sites to park an RV and even then, many sites are terraced on a side hill. Even the campfire area provided only a place to build a fire. We had to bring our own chairs. The other people sitting around the fire dominated the evening with their private conversation. Unfortunately, it is the only RV park in the immediate area.
This is an acceptable, average overnight stop, but I wouldn't want to stay here long term. The park has limited facilities, narrow gravel streets, and short gravel sites that barely accommodated my 40 ft MH. I had to disconnect the towed vehicle because it stuck out into the road. When I called ahead with the specs of my MH and toad, the person assured me the site was adequate. In short, this park is typical of 1970s or 1980s construction. It is also over priced when compared to other, newer resort style parks, some of which charge less. I saw several trailers and fifth wheels that appear to be full time residents.
This truly qualifies as a RV resort. Wide streets and wide, paved sites spaced far apart. New facilities, exercise room and massages by appointment. Located on the banks of the Sacramento river. More amenities to enjoy include putting green, pool, spa, pickle ball, and sports court. This will definitely become a "must" stop for us as we travel north and south.
Stopped here to check weather & road conditions before continuing south through the Siskiyous. Staff was helpful, Wi-Fi worked great, limited road noise that was not obtrusive and not an issue. This will be our stop in the future when we travel south in January.
Big rigs avoid this park. Go down the road. The campground owner directed me to a pull-through site. The thin layer of crushed rock camouflaged the soft ground underneath it. The owner later told me their campground is built on an ancient river bed. Even though I put double 2x10x16 pads under all jacks as a matter of routine they punched through the thin layer of crushed rock. The front jack forced the 2x10s into the mud at an angle. When I retracted the jacks the front one slipped off the boards further into the mud and was bent so I could not retract it. I had to have an RV repair tech remove the jack. It cost $1900 for the RV tech services and to replace the jack. When I called the owners to look at the situation they were rude, accusatory, and refused to accept responsibility for the damage. They didn't even offer to refund the nightly rental cost.
We sent a check weeks in advance of our arrival date to reserve a site. We traveled south on hwy 101 and our GPS directed us to take SR-1 to Fort Bragg. However, when we exited onto SR-1 a large sign read, "Motorhomes longer than 40 ft are prohibited on SR-1." That is the length of our MH and we had a Toad so we immediately made a U-turn and continued down 101 to Ukiah. We also called Pomo RV Park to inform them we could not stay with them. The person we spoke with said, "You should have continued. They don't always ticket everyone." I believe the prohibition is placed for safety reasons but Pomo RV refused to refund our deposit. The manager at the park in Ukiah where we stayed said it would also be difficult for a 40 ft MH with a Toad to navigate the alternate route to Fort Bragg. There is no mention of the prohibition based on the MH length in any descriptors for Pomo RV Park.
