We agree with everyone else's comments. An excellent RV park with wonderful facilities, an exceptional staff. Our only reason for not staying here more often is that we are not gamblers and do not smoke, so going to the huge casino is not an option for us, and other than lounging by the indoor pool, which is lovely, there is nothing to do in Canyonville.
Our rate reflects a Passport America discount. We have been stopping at this campground for a number of years heading back and forth to Southern California. Because of a flat tire and the weather forecast, we decided to spend a second day exploring the area. There are 81 wineries here in the Lodi/Woodbridge area. Having sampled just a few, our next trip south will include Lodi as a destination. The only thing preventing us from giving it a 10 instead of the 9 we rated it is the limited TV channel selection. In the past, pre-iPad with cellular capabilities, we also had problems with Internet access, but the iPad worked fine here on cellular. Otherwise, we agree with the excellent reviews others have given Flag City RV Resort.
We have stayed at the campground several times and have always been pleased. As other reviewers have mentioned, it is extremely well maintained, clean, resort like, and the location is perfect coming and going to/from Southern California. It is also very close to a Camping World and supermarkets, should you need any supplies. What no one has mentioned is that the restaurant and bar on the premises serve the very best Bloody Mary's to be had anywhere on the planet. The food is quite good, too. Bakersfield is always a dilemma for us because two of our favorite RV parks are here, this one and Orange Grove. We resolve the dilemma by staying in one heading South and the other returning north. I sure wish the I-5 corridor had other RV parks of this caliber elsewhere along the way.
If you hate fresh air, and love the scent of fabric softener and laundry detergent, and all the beds in the Valley's laundromats are taken, this is the place for you. We first camped here 4 years ago and really liked the place. When we came back for a longer stay the next year, it looked a bit run down, and one could hardly breathe in the pool area, as the laundry vented out into the pool area. We skipped a year, and when I called this year to ask if anything had been done about the problem, I was told that all of the dryers were newly vented, so we made a short, two week reservation, intending to extend our stay if things were as presented. We could smell the laundry facility before passing through the gates. I guess no one told management that even with new venting, someone had to clean them. The place is considerably more run down than two years ago, and many park models are for sale. Friends who own park models are really unhappy, but apparently, it is very hard to sell them, yet the fees keep rising. We will not be returning.
A little pricey, but this is a really nice park with great facilities. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Coffee, tea, hot chocolate, and cookies are always available. Wonderful, inexpensive restaurants in the area. We would definitely stay here again.
Not sure this is exactly a review, but RVers should know that the office for this campground is closed on Sundays. We were contemplating a move here from Malibu but based on the reviews at this website, we thought we better look at it first. When we arrived, there was a couple in an older, small RV who were wondering what to do, as they had found the manager somehow, and were told no camptsites were available. By the time we arrived, the manager was unavailable and a sign said the office was closed on Sundays. No one stopped us or asked who we were, so we decided to drive around to check it out. The reviews here are pretty accurate from what we could observe, but I would worry about security since we could have been robbers and no one even looked at us twice. However, it should be noted that we observed that at least 10 sites were empty, despite what the other couple were told.
This is a beautiful park, but not really suitable for a stay of any length unless you are a family with kids. Not all that much to do in the Malibu area for grown ups except to relax and enjoy the view. We changed sites 3 times and the hosts were very accommodating. We finally slected an Ocean view because we fet the extra cost was worth the unobstructed ocean breezes. Very different prices depending on location and whether you have electric and water, or full hookup services and those prices rise considerably on weekends. Internet was best experienced in any RV park, and channel selection and reception were decent for cable TV. Our son visited us for a few hours and was charged an additional $10 for parking. The security seems extra tight to the point of being disconcerting. Husband had to wait in line for a shower on a Saturday night.
We agree with other rececnt reviews. This is just about the the ONLY place to stay in that long stretch between Corning, CA and the Los Angeles outskirts. The owners are very kind and considerate. The WiFi was decent, the bathrooms were old but usable, and the swimming pool water was clean but cold.
We agree with the other comments made about this RV park, especially difficulty finding the entrance. This is the second time we stayed here, and I can't emphasize the conveninece of the local amenities. Easy walk or drive to shopping and convenient entrance and exits from gas stations. and since it was our second visit, found it right away. The staff was the same as two years ago and is friendly and helpful. Only criticism is that there are few cable TV channels and internet service goes in and out.
Staff was very friendly and helpful. The park was clean, including the shower facilites, but there was almost no water pressure in the showers. WiFi was poor as was the cable TV reception. Very few channels available.
Of all the campgrounds we have stayed in since aquiring our motorhome two years ago, this is our favorite. The staff is delightful, the sites are level and separated by orange trees, and the oranges we picked, delicious. Bakersfield is simply a stopover for us when we are heading further south, but we would go out of our way to stay here again. The restrooms and showers are immaculate. WiFi and choice of TV stations are both excellant. Our only criticism is that the washing machines and dryers need cleaning as they reek from fabric softener.
This is the second year we stayed at this park. Last year we stayed only two weeks; this year an entire month. It is specifically for people over 55, and the quiet reflects that. The price quoted reflects a rate for a monthly stay, not including electricity, which, if one stays for a month or more, is metered and paid for at the conclusion of one's stay. The cost of electricity for our month, mid January through mid February was $55. We have two complaints about the park. One is internet access. It is simply inadequate for the number of users. Our major complaint is the ventilation of the laundry room. I am allergic to the scent of many detergents and fabric softeners, and these scents seem to permeate the outdoor area where the mineral hot spring fed pools and hot tubs are. For this reason, we will probably not return next year. For anyone who uses these products and is not sensitive to this issue, this is a lovely park with the very nicest people.
Generally speaking, this is a very nice park. Sites are large and very private with shrubs in between sites. We also liked the placement of large trash cans in between sites near the road so that one could easily dispose of trash. The park is VERY clean. We were here over Presidents Day weekend, and being retirees who live most of the year in a retirement community, we simply are not used to so many children, and the noise they create. Additionally, this campground does not provide very much in the way of choices of TV stations. For $70 per night, I think they should provide at least basic cable.
We were there off season and not sure if the managers were the usual managers or substitutes. The park is beautifully situated on the beach on a lake, but the sites are the narrowest sites we have ever seen. We were camping with another couple and could not fit our 29 foot motorhome in the site next to their 5th wheel as it was so narrow. I did one load of laundry there, but almost did not because the laundry room was filthy. I did not use the ladies locker/toilet/shower room, but my husband used the men's and complained that it was also extremely dirty. The managers had two pit bulls which were allowed to roam free. One pit bull attacked the dog of our friends grabbing it by the neck. Our friend kicked the pit bull until it released his dog. The manager apologized, but never chained up his dogs. The campground claims to be family and pet friendly, but we think it is dangerous. We saw very small children playing in the same area where the pit bulls had been roaming free, but not at the same time.
