A great park close to town but seems like way out in the middle of wilderness. This park has lots of space and it was silent at night. Close to Temecula Wine country. We were with a group of about 15 motor homes in one of the group spots. The group area is dirt / gravel. Some dust. Fairly nice picnic table fire pit area. Good views of lake. It is about 8 miles to downtown Temecula from here and maybe 3 miles to the center of the wine country. The streets of Temecula are CROWDED on the weekend. After a visit to old town Temecula I looked forward to going back my my refuge at Lake Skinner. Our group area did not have sewer.
I have to split my rating a bit. This park gets a 10+ for friendliness. The manager and assistant were super. We pulled in the entrance and they walked across the lawn and told me, "You must have been able to smell the dinner." We laughed, parked and enjoyed a free BBQ dinner and met many of the other park residents and guests. And the food was good BTW. But there are a few things about the park you should know. If you have a DP and can raise your coach up when you pull into the entrance, do so. Mine scraped when I pulled in. I did not push my raise button. Our site was less than plush, but it was fine. Everything worked. There are a number of nicer sites if you are going to stay longer. Park is in Visalia right on the road to Sequoia park.
This is a very nice park. It is not one that attracts large motor homes. We have a 42' and were by far the largest in here. It is miles off the freeway, 14 miles west of Lassen National Park. In my humble opinion this is a better park for tenters, kabin renters, and small RVs, than for big rigs. We had no problem getting into our space. And there are a couple of other spaces for large rigs. Most of the campers here were in tents. And I want to say that they were wonderful tent sites. Immaculate, with fire rings, little fences and so on. But there are some considerations if you have a large RV and want to use the phone. Cell phones don't work here. Yes they do sort of. If you sit right next to the cell phone amp it works maybe, sometimes. The trees for sure will block your satellite dishes. Neither of mine worked. This is a park with extra things all around. For instance the dog park had toys like a gymset for the dogs. There were lots of kid friendly things too. And the people here are super. Now here is the biggest downer. Remember no satellites. The internet here is pay: 10 bucks a day. And it is the speed of the old dial up when it was really busy. Meaning, you pay 10 bucks and it hardly works. This park is really like a park in the National Park, but it's private with a few extras. If you have kids, want to go to Lassen, and are in a tent or small RV this is the place for you. Big RV: maybe not.
This is a great RV Park. Has very friendly attentive managers. Nice facilities that are clean, attractive, and kept up. It is also right on the Rogue River. There is one big problem and one consideration. The problem is the freeway. It is right past the river and quite loud. As one of my neighbors commented though, "my hearing is shot so I really don't notice it". If your hearing is not shot you will notice it. Our motorhome has double-paned windows and is quite well insulated. We did not have a problem sleeping. But I only left the windows open opposite the noise. The consideration is for big rigs. There are three pull through spaces. If you are over 40 feet, ask for one of them. It was twisty and hard to get to our space. We had no problem pulling out, but pulling in was not for the faint of heart. If it were not for the noise this would have easily been a 10 rated park. On Sundays the camp host makes breads and cakes. Very nice but noisy place. Did I say it was noisy?
Fairly new RV Park, which also has hotel rooms. Located right on a large river. We had one of about 12 spacious pull through sites. The others were back in sites, but plenty big enough for 40'. This park has agreements with some of the many local RV upgrade and repair places that are in this area. I was able to have a couple come out and do work on my coach while I was here. This is a good location to a large Camping World and Guarantee RV Parts. There is also a conference center here. Freightliner was having people in a few days after we stayed here. There is nothing wrong with any of the facilities here. I did not give it a 9 or 10 because the park is not visually stunning. Maybe a bit more grass and trees would help.
Spacious RV park overall. Many children's activities. There are some things to really like about this park, but some things not so much. We had no luck getting out brand new HD sat dish to find a signal. However, there were some other campers that had smaller non-HD tripod style dishes that seemed to work. Our internet satellite dish came close to getting a good enough signal but the trees are just too tall. No WiFi in camp area that I could find. As normal with Thousand Trails parks the staff here were very friendly. This park looked like it was very nice 15 years ago. The facilities have been let go though. I realize that the economy has been rough the last couple of years, but the deterioration of this park started long before that. But, if you are a TT member and can stay here at a very low price this is not a bad place at all. If this was a pay per stay place I think they would have a hard time staying in business.
This is a very nice area and this is a great RV park. We stayed in August and warm during the day and cooled right off at night. This park is off the freeway but there still is a bit of truck Jake Brake noise from the road beside it. I think I would have rated it a 10 if not for that. Clean park with two dog runs. A large outdoor movie screen where they show movies at night. Friendly staff. Great Wi-Fi. Both my satellites could see their birds. This would make a great place to spend a while. Unfortunately for us we were just stopping for the night.
Very well organized RV Park. Clean. Our rig is 42' and a tight fit for length. Also hard to find place to store car. Very nice friendly staff. Very welcoming and attentive. Wi-Fi worked great here from our coach. A bit more freeway noise than we like, but easy to get to. Could have been a bit more generous with size of spaces. A good stop on I-5.
A fairly good spot to stop on I-5. No park internet. A tree blocked both my satellites. Used Verizon internet. Dirt gravel road. Spacious sites and grounds. A slight bit on the funky side. Plenty of room for big rigs. For the price this is a good spot.
I have stayed here a number of times. I like it because it is an oasis away from the hustle of east Los Angeles. When we recently stayed here it was 90% full. Wi-Fi not at our site. Verizon service marginal. Used satellite for Internet. Oh yeah, watch out for the skunks. Our dog got sprayed right next to our coach and it was a stinking problem for quite a few days.
This park has pluses and minuses and therefore gets a middle rating. Since we belong to Thousand Trails you can't beat the price - 0. And if you want to be in this area as we did it is centrally located. It is a country setting in a relatively crowded area of thousands of homes. But there is one neighbor that is not welcome. That is the hundreds of cows next door. This meant lots of fly's for our stay. The wind kept up so when you sat outside it was not too bad. But there are a ton of them around and we had to keep swatting them in our coach. The park is relatively clean and most sites are large. Many sites have trees. This is good for shade, not so good for satellite reception. No 50 amp is a big minus. Most parks have that these days. In hot summer weather we would have a very hot coach if we had only 30 amps. No cable TV. On the other hand there are water features and there were people catching fish in them. There are lots of kid friendly things too. Including a little choo choo that runs at certain times. My wife's assessment is harsher than mine. She is putting this on the do not return list.
This is a very well laid out fully paved park. Right next to RV sales and service plus big camping / RV store. Has a restaurant. Dog run. Good security. Clean. Not scenic at all. There are mountains in the background but there are also high tension wires and lots of traffic noise. We stayed here for three nights and when we were here it seemed like there were a lot of overnight stays. As in many parks the Wi-Fi was fair to poor. This seems like a common problem. The park was only 10% full so I would imagine the Wi-Fi would be far worse when the park was full.
This is a great stop point in the middle of southern AZ. Nothing to the west till Yuma (except date shakes at Dateland), and nothing to the east till Casa Grande. and Augies has wide big spaces that are easy to pull into day or night. Wi-Fi works well here now. The check in is friendly and easy, plus you get an escort to your space. Last night we had a very clear sky with a million stars to see. Not a luxury park, but certainly a good stopping place. Gila Bend has fuel for the motor home or truck and a couple of fairly good places to eat.
Very good location right next to entrance of the State Park Museum, central place to visit. Museum is a walkable distance, but at least 1 mile. The sites are gravel, not paved. There are some trees. Some sites are significantly easier to use for larger rigs, so be sure to ask for one if you are over 25-28 feet. Some 50 amp and some 30 amp. There are extensive grounds with hotel / motel type rooms. Buildings are western style. There is a nice restaurant and bar. There are some meeting rooms which are available for nominal rates. We enjoyed our stay here as part of a small rally. This is a very good park to have that type of function. We stayed here the second week in March, which is just ideal as a time to visit. A beautiful area, with wildflowers this time of year, and also perfect weather.
We stayed here the same time last year. This is the nicest RV park we have ever stayed in. The staff is friendly, efficient, and easy to find. The park is better than well kept. Plus at this time of year it is a wonderful place to be. The mountains are right in the background and yet the park is sunk a little down so you see nothing but green, palm trees, and water, plus the background mountains. This is not a huge park. So make reservations if coming over Christmas or Jan 15 - March 15.
This park has been here since I was a kid and is in an area of very expensive homes right on an arm of the back bay in Newport Beach. My quick impression of our stay was, great location, with a so so site. This is a very kid friendly place. There was a craft project for our grandchild at 10am, another planned thing at 2pm, movies at night, and so on. And when the sun peaks out of the clouds (something that does not happen often in May and June here) there is a great beach on a bay. It has tons of big kid type toys, boats, and so on. But again, our space was so so. Kind of small, sand no grass, sewer hook up was kind of impossible to use right. Jets take off frequently all day. There are a number of view sites with more room and ambiance than our site. But we did not get one of those. This place should be great in July and Aug. But weather only so so in May. And that was the end of May too. But since I think this is the only RV park in Newport I would say give it a try if you want to be in this area.
This is a nice family park near Julian in San Diego County CA. Our site was quiet with lots of trees and shade. The park is like, well, a park, and that was very good. However, the facilities are not up to what you normally expect. Such as sewer hook ups. There were none. Unless you are a permanent resident. When I say permanent don't think of low level. What you have in this park is a bunch of weekenders or folks escaping the desert heat who have a trailer or RV here. Many have built patios and so on. There is also a large tent area. Also, there is a small fishing lake. If you like to look up at the stars you will like it here. We brought our telescope. It is about four miles from here to Julian. If you want to be in a park like setting this is a great place. Might be a bit cramped to get really huge class A's in. Spaces slope down and that blocks the noise from the road. However, there is some motorcycle noise on weekends. Julian attracts TONS of motorcycle riders on weekends. You can certainly hear when 40 Harleys go by.
Old time style park. Very nice people, but colorful. No credit cards. But low prices. A church right next door if you are so inclined. A big plus of this place is that there is no freeway or train noise. I rated it a bit higher than some would as I sort of like the little bit of color. But I am funk tolerant.
Nice KOA right off the 40 Interstate. Gravel not paved. Friendly check in. This park is right on Route 66. Lots of Rt 66 stuff in gift shop. Nice pool and laundry. Pay WiFi, but not expensive. Some sites with nice view of lights of Laughlin. Close to town.
Part of our problem with this park was that we arrived here from a wonderful 10+ place. This KOA was only passable. Barely. Gravel here, not paved. Sites have no, or almost no, grass. When I first went to use the mens room 2 of the 3 stalls were out of order. I reported it and it was quickly fixed though. The other downer was the constant firecrackers. Our dog hates them and after two nights at this park of frequent blasts we and our Airdale had had it. Our first site was a non pull through where when I pulled all the way to the trees I was able to hook up the sewer. And the sewer was too high for our low slung coach so it was a hassle to set up. Plus our first space we were next to the Beverly Hillbilly's. We have nothing against old coaches as ours is 33 years old. But next to us was a newer coach than ours that I am sure had to be towed to it's current location. Then there was the boat, and ATV with no tires. And a swap meet full of other stuff. We requested and were able to get another site. Which was great till later in the day when the too-good-for-anyones showed up. And then those delightful folks packed up and left at 4am. The slamming, warm up, and other noise made sure we were awake. And this was our experience.
Wow what a great RV Park. This is most likely the nicest commercial RV Park we have ever stayed in. The reason I qualified my rating is that we have stayed in some Park spots where the views were better. But this park is really at the top of the places I have been to. Plus the weather has been perfect here for late December. The people were very friendly and it seems like there are lots of people cleaning and taking care of everything. The bathroom / showers were the best of any place I have ever been. There are ten bathroom / shower rooms. Each clean and climate controlled. Very nice heated pool. One large hot tub and three smaller mineral water hot tubs. They have an exercise room. Reading room with Wi-Fi. Today there were free Yoga lessons. Tomorrow night a new years eve party. Spaces have lots of room. View from park is quite good. They have paid attention to make the edges of the park a bit higher than where you are staying so that what you see is grass and park like grounds and then the mountains. You don't see the general desert funk across the street. There is a nine hole golf course. Lots of grass. Big dog run. And you can even buy a house on the other side of the park if you like it a lot.
I have stayed here 4-5 times in the last couple of years. The last time I had a space overlooking a modest size lake. Looked out my MH at 6:30am to see a small boat fishing on the lake. For the middle of the eastern part of Los Angeles this is GREAT. I have rated this park high because of the fact that it is a nice place to park, and is in LA. There is some noise, but again, middle of LA. One time of the year you have to watch out for with regard to noise in in Feb. The winternationals drag races take place and are in the Pomona fairgrounds just below the park. You definitely can hear them. And they practice late. My motor home is 26' and even I had to be a little careful about driving on some of the park roads. Really big rigs would need to be very careful. This park is regularly pretty full. I have never made a reservation and have always been able to get in, but in summer I would make reservations.
Nice park fairly close to Paso Robles and I-5. Be careful about following your GPS here as our Garmin got lost. Very clean facilities and extremely friendly staff. But the park is close to a pretty busy road and noise can be an issue. Also no shade to speak of and it gets very hot here in the summer.
A very well situated park to visit the Buellton, Solvang, Los Olivos area. Just off the freeway but quiet, this park is big and busy. Lots of amenities here like pool, rec room, small store, and so on. Within close walking distance of Anderson's Split Pea food and shop. We picked up a case of the excellent but hard to find tomato soup. Be sure to visit Los Olivos when here. Lovely small artsy town that was in the movie Sideways. Don't bother to drive to the beach, very bad access. Mostly military on the beach. Friendly staff and people staying here. Lots of smiling faces. But be sure to reserve ahead for weekends.
This was a well located park within walking distance of the historic city of Columbia. The walk is around 1/2 mile. Situated in a forest type setting you can while away some time here enjoying just the park. We used our stay to explore Jamestown, Sonora, Murphy's, and Angels Camp. And of course we went into Columbia every day on foot. The town of Columbia is a State park. It is a collection of brick buildings from the gold rush days and offers history, good food, hotels, and a nice theater. We went to see a very good production of a musical about Hank Williams when we were there. We loved the town of Murphy's too. Be sure to visit the Ironstone Winery to see a huge/giant gold nugget and wonderful gardens. The owners/managers of this RV Park could not have been nicer. They were very attentive to our needs and always had a smile on the faces. My one small niggle is no heat in the mens shower area. Kind of cold in April. Very good free WiFi, but cell phone did not work.
