Traveled a couple hours to this park for a weekend getaway; we chose this park due to the good reviews it has received. Past reviews seem accurate. Park is not that hard to get into if you do a brief amount of research before-hand; yes the sign does come up on you quick but the turn getting in is fine. We arrived after the RV Lodge had closed, and used the gate code that had been given to us over the phone when reserving. Interior roads are all patched up fine, I can see where there were holes in the past, but everything is in good shape now. Sites have a concrete pad (ours was perfectly level), and nice grass lawn. Pedestal is well placed. Water pressure was strong. 30 amp breaker tripped on the second day we were there, with only the A/C running on electric. Other campers in adjacent sites said their breaker had tripped during their stay as well. I didn't like that, as we leave the dogs in the trailer while using the pool, and on a 100 degree Texas day, the dogs would not get by very long at all without the A/C running. Luckily, we had just returned to the trailer when the breaker tripped (I am never away from the trailer for more than an hour at a time for this very reason). Cable TV was indeed sub-par as most previous reviews have stated. Most channels were fuzzy, and the sound seemed intermittent on most channels. We were able to watch a fair number of channels with an "alright" picture, so it wasn't a total loss. I did pay the $5 for Wi-Fi, but never used it. I think having to pay for Wi-Fi when you are already shelling out $37 a night to stay in the park is pretty bogus. The swimming pool area at the RV Lodge is nice. You cannot take alcohol into the pool, in fact you are not supposed to take alcohol anywhere other than your own RV site. Not a big problem, but some people I'm sure would like to know about this in advance. We were not there during First Mondays, so the park was about 25% full. Bath houses looked nice, but I did not go in. This property is huge, with all of the cottages and the Grand Lodge further back from the road than the RV sites. We didn't explore that area as time just ran short. All in all, this is a very nice park and I would stay again for sure. I very rarely give a 10 score. This park gets a 8. 1 point deducted for the combination of shoddy cable TV and having to pay for Wi-Fi, and 1 point deducted for the issues with breakers tripping (especially when the park was 25% full). Perhaps it is something out of the park's control (I know the alcohol issue is indeed out of their control due to the "private club" TABC thing). We will probably be back, as everyone was friendly and we did have a real nice time.
We stayed here 6 years ago when the park was very new. It was great then, and it is still a very nice park. The roads and sites are all paved. Roads easy to maneuver, and sites are all nice and big. I checked out the restrooms/showers in the main building at the front of the property, there are 6 huge bathrooms with showers; they looked very nice. We used the pool this time and enjoyed it tremendously. Ice machine at the front desk, $1 a bag. Power and water were good, cable TV was decent. Wi-Fi was slow to connect at first, but then worked pretty well. We enjoy this park very much, and will be back for sure. The road noise from I-20 is present at all times, but it didn't bother us at all, it is not "super loud". Park would get a 10 from me, but it doesn't look like the grass gets watered, and as a result, there are sticker plants everywhere. The grass itself wasn't unmowed, but the sticker plants were a foot tall in some places, they grow in a hurry. Not ideal for dogs. I guess that is the only thing I can think of that isn't "excellent" at this park. I imagine a lot of people are not aware that there are 3 nice hotel rooms in the upper level of the main building, as well as a pretty big banquet room. There was a family reunion going on, with most of the attendees staying in RVs, and a few of them that do not have RVs were staying in the hotel rooms. This setup would be great for families or other groups looking to have a get together.
We stayed here for one night on our way north, and also one night on the way back south. I sought out a good park anywhere between OKC and KC and became convinced that this was the best place for us, given the other reviews on this website. The thing I liked most about the park is that is fenced and gated, and they provide an access code to get in the gate. We arrived late in the night as we often do and appreciated not having to wait or call to have the gate opened. We felt 100% safe and secure in this park. The park is beautiful, being brand new everything really shines. The concrete looks clean enough to eat off of, and the grass is amazing. The sites are big and level, and the hookups are all right by each other and feature a lighted pedestal. The bathrooms and showers were spotless. The huge fenced in dog run was something we enjoyed tremendously. Gentleman in the office was very friendly and helpful to me during both stays. This is the second nicest park we have ever stayed in, and we will be back for sure.
Stayed for 4 nights in July. We stayed in one of the upper level sites, I would not even consider staying on the lower level as the spots and roads are way too tight (although the price is about half of what the upper level sites run). The upper level spots are not the roomiest themselves, but they are better than below. The park is nice, TONS of landscaping that gives it a resort feel. The problem is that there is almost TOO MUCH shrubbery, bushes, trees, etc. Our site had trees on both sides that made it very difficult to put all 4 slides and the awning out. I had to go in the back and tie a tree branch back so that we could back up far enough into the spot with a 42 footer. Also, there is very little room to set up chairs, etc due to the site being narrow. Great dog walk area on the upper level, the best I have ever seen. Road noise from I-15 is pretty loud considering how far off the road you are, but I could live with it. Nothing about this park would deter me from staying again. Paved sites, paved roads in good shape (albeit narrow). All in all it feels like they tried to cram too many spots into the space that they have. But, because the park is so beautiful it makes for an enjoyable stay. The price is way too high, but given the southern CA location that figures. This same park in other parts of the country would charge $30-35. One final thing, they give you a bag when you come in with tons of great information regarding park FAQ's, how to use all of the amenities, area hospitals/ churches/ places of interest, etc. This was a nice touch as it makes you feel like they care that your stay is pleasant.
I didn't think this park was as bad as many of the previous reviews have indicated. I notice most of those reviews are from well in the past, perhaps the park has been cleaned up alot since then as it looked OK to me. There are alot of permanent residents, but we didn't have any trouble or get any bad looks. We stayed only for one night when passing through. There is a huge area to park by the office when checking in. The site was good sized and separated by a small fence. Didn't use cable, did use Wifi and it was good. I would stay here again, but I also would explore other parks in Bakersfield as there surely has to be something better.
Great RV park, and the fact that the convenient store is an added bonus. A couple of the prior reviews illustrate the fact that some of the reviews on here must be taken with a grain of salt, or should be ignored all together. Fallon RV Park has paved interior roads and sites, not sure where the gravel comments came from. Plus, there are TONS of trees, many of them huge. I am not a relative or employee of the place, just a guy who really enjoyed my 3-night stay and would gladly go back. The grass lawn at each spot is very big. Good power and water pressure. I could pull the Wi-Fi signal from the building in my motorhome, parked in the next to last row away from the building. The restrooms were very clean, and I also liked that they require a key. All of the permanent residents were parked off to the side and at the back of the park when I was there, I didn't even notice them until the day I pulled out to leave. I also didn't notice the road noise so it must not have been too loud.
Stayed in this park for one night while heading to Oregon. Pulled in very late, after-hours procedure is find your own spot and pay in the drop slot. There are pre-marked envelopes for each available spot. We pulled into a nice level site with full concrete pad. 50 amp power did not work, ran the cable over to the next spot and it did work. No cable TV or Wi-Fi. Shrubs between each spot. There were plenty of sites available, so we did not have anyone on either side of us. I liked the park, can't say that I would ever stay there for an extended period as I just wouldn't have any need to be in Santa Nella. But, it worked great for an overnight park and I would stay again for sure.
This park has a great feel to it. A previous poster stated that it is nothing more than a big parking lot, which made me realize that that phrase is used way too often in the reviews I have been reading. I would say this park is way more than just a parking lot. Yes, the entire park is paved/blacktopped, but there are plenty of trees and grass islands to give it a nice appearance. The sites are double-wide, meaning you have a ton of room curbside to set up tables, chairs, awning, park vehicles, etc. I was able to use the Wi-Fi with no problems at all, it was very fast. I did not see any motorhomes or trailers in the park that were in bad shape. I have stayed in this park multiple times and do not even think about staying anywhere else whenever I am in Reno. I especially like that the park is a 2-minute walk to the Bonanza Casino (site of the Cactus Creek Steakhouse, a MUST for steak lovers).
Will score a 7 because the price was good. The park is OK overall, we knew coming in that it was small so we made a reservation. Ellen was very friendly and led us to our spot. The pull-through site was decent sized, but the turn getting into it is tight. We have a 42' and it just did make the turn. The perimeter row is pretty close to the middle row, so you don't have alot of room to maneuver. Once in the site, we had to park right in the middle due to trees on both sides, would not have been able to put the bedroom slide out on the road side had we aligned on the left side of the spot. Oh well, we fit and it worked out OK. Good power and good water pressure, didn't use the cable so can't say about that. The dog run is fenced so you can let the pups off the leash. The WiFi is almost not worth using (at least for the night we were there). It was as sporadic as I have ever seen, I ended up switching it off and using the Cingular card. We did not use the pool, restrooms, or laundry. There are a majority of long-term residents here. This is one time where I would have been well in favor of a fence or some shrubs in between the sites, the guy next to us parked his truck about 3 feet from our motorhome (and that was even with us being centered in the site instead of aligned with the left-hand side. Can only imagine how close he would have been otherwise). We stayed one night passing through. I would probably try a different park in town if passing through again, this place is fine for smaller vehicles but is just too small for the big rigs.
Price was a little steep, or I would have given it an 8. Friendly office staff, and Bill led me right to our spot on the golf cart. Decent-sized pull through, concrete is showing its age and is breaking apart/coming up in places. Very little grass, mostly large gravel/rocks where there is not concrete. Everything about this park is aging, the picnic table at our spot was barely worth sitting on (though I did see nicer tables at other sites). Good water pressure, and excellent 50 amp power. The dog run appears to consist of a big dirt lot that had a semi truck and a bunch of junk in it, I didn't even open the gate and explore it any further after seeing that. The continental breakfast was a nice offering, it featured good food. We stayed for one night passing through. I would stay again, probably not on a long-term basis but it is OK to use for a night. I would have felt better about staying there had the price been about $15 less.
Traveling down the highway in a 42 footer, this park is exactly what I look for. I don't even know where to begin, this place is a 10 for sure. Tons of space, wide paved roads, concrete pads on the HUGE level sites. Top-notch facilities, clubhouse with pool and spa, bathroom and showers were sparkling clean. Great 50 amp power, 6 different onsite wifi networks to connect to. Friendly staff at check-in that shows you the park map and lets you choose where you want to be. Dogs had all kinds of room to roam around. Park was only about 1/4 full on Thursday, July 10, 2008. We were only passing through, but I would stay at this park for an extended period of time in a heartbeat if I were in Amarillo again. Only two things weren't perfect, but they are no fault of the park so I do not detract from the score: quite windy (especially at night), and the cow manure odor was pretty strong but thankfully only lasted for about an hour. Bottom line, I wish every RV park in the country could be just like this one. I wouldn't change a thing!
We really enjoyed the location of this park. The park itself is small, and we had to put our 40' in a back-in spot. I had the back right up against some branches, and the front was sticking out in the road by a foot or so. But, since the park is so small there isn't a lot of traffic so I wasn't worried. Very close to the beach, nice little walking trail to get there. Cable TV did cut out on many channels. Bathrooms and laundry facility was somewhat clean. We stayed for 5 nights, and would go back for sure, although we also are interested in checking out other parks in Gold Beach. The town itself might just be my favorite vacation spot of all, small and quaint with numerous neat little shops, etc. As noted on other reviews, the first-come, first-served policy can leave you high and dry if you arrive later in the day. We arrived very late and considered ourselves lucky to get the last spot.
Excellent park that is only a year old! All roads and sites are paved. Each site also features a nice grass lawn. Our spot was a 70' pull-through, the lawn was approximately 30' x 70'. The dogs loved it! No cable TV yet, though it is in the plans. Some road noise from I-20, we were in the fourth spot from the road and it was tolerable. If you were further from the road it probably wouldn't even be noticed. No front gate, and no security after-hours. Being 7 miles from town and right on the Interstate makes me somewhat concerned as to who could get in the park at night, but overall the park was quiet and there was no commotion. We stayed for 5 nights, and I would gladly stay again!!
We stayed at this park on July 4, 2008. We arrived after 10:00 PM and were glad to find an on-duty guard. He was very helpful in checking us in and giving us options on where we wanted to be. The sites are dirt and the roads are concrete. The site that we were in was quite narrow, if the park was full I would be very concerned about having enough room for the slides. You can forget about doing anything outside on your site, as not only is there not enough room but the ground is dirt. There is a large fenced-in dog run that we appreciated. There do appear to be a good number of permanent residents, some with older trailers. It was an OK place to stay for a night, the fact that there is a security guard on site 24 hours a day was a deciding factor in our staying there. I would not stay here for any longer than a one night pass-through.
Overall, this is a nice facility. It is on the grounds of the Beaudry RV dealer in Tucson. The RV Park itself is at the rear of the property. The entire complex is huge, and the RV Park itself is fenced and gated and has 24 hour security. The sites are very compact gravel while the landings are pavement. The size of the sites is good, plenty deep and very wide. All roads are pavement and in great shape. There are not alot of shade trees on the grounds. We stayed only one night, but I would stay more. There is a restaurant on site. The park was not crowded when we were there on July 3, 2008. I would have given the park a higher score, but we had a problem with after-hours check in. It took over an hour for someone to unlock the main gate to let us in, evidently the guard who was supposed to be manning the back gate (after-hours entrance) did not show up for work. Also, the 50A receptacle at the first site that we were directed to was very troublesome as it was lose in the box. It threw sparks and blew the breaker when I tried to hook up. Those two issues were minor though. Overall we enjoyed our stay and we would stay again. The best features of the park are the security and the wide sites.
