This park offers all kinds of accommodations. Cabins to dry camping and everything in between. We stayed in a premium pull-thru spot, full hook-ups. This type of space provides asphalt driveway for the RV, a picnic table and fire ring in a grass area between your rig and the one next door. Most of these grassy areas are dead as was ours, this would be a pretty park if the grass was alive. Spaces are roomy, but not level. Wi-Fi is reliable, cable reception is poor and satellite service is unavailable in most spots because of the trees. Not all spaces are afforded shade by the many trees in the park, ours was one of those. It was too sunny to enjoy an evening meal outside as the spaces are oriented backwards. If we had been facing the other direction, the coach would have provided shade and evenings would have been lovely. They do have "reverse end spots" that provide good orientation to the setting sun, plus gliders and lawn chairs are provided. The park has tons of amenities, obviously oriented to the family camper, with petting zoos, pool, bocce, video game rooms, etc. Lots of kids on the weekend even though school had started. The dog park is one of the best we've seen, even includes some agility apparatus. The laundry room is good size, with nice high efficiency machines. The machines were clean, the laundry room was not. We cleaned the folding table so that we could fold our clean laundry. We would not choose to stay here again, mostly because of the "no comfortable outside area at our site". Just not our cup of tea and not maintained as well as it should be. The dog will be disappointed. Rate reflects KOA discount.
This park served as an overnight stop on a long leg. This review is based on that perspective. Right off the freeway, this park is easy off and easy on to the I5 in Patterson. It is within walking distance of restaurants and shopping, gas and fuel nearby. All great things for this type of overnight stop. A better choice, in our opinion, than a rest stop, truck stop, or boondocking at the Walmart. We stayed in a pull thru spot. These are apparently setup just for the "overnight" business. The asphalt driveways for the coach are in disrepair and there is no outside area provided, just gravel. Back-in sites in the park have small lawns and small asphalt patios, but no table or other amenities provided. Office staff was friendly, Wi-Fi worked fine, good reception on antenna TV, utilities worked fine. Did not use bathrooms, showers or laundry facilities. Rate reflects Passport America discount. We would overnight there again.
Tahoe Valley Resort - this is a campground. Trees, fire rings (in most spots, otherwise you are charged $2 a day to rent one) dirt and traditional camp tables. So this is the basis for the review. The premium spots are on the outside of each loop providing for no campers behind you. Nice. Some of these back up to campground amenities such as volleyball courts, etc. Some back up to the road, but most back up to the forest, nicer. Some are pretty narrow, some are nice and wide, some even allowing room for an additional tent. We got lucky and had a beautiful spot, forest behind, plenty of room to spread out, and a fire ring. Our spot had almost enough space between the trees to extend both slides and the awnings. Some spots appeared to be somewhat narrower. The office staff did a nice job of understanding our needs and matched us with a good spot. This is the best place we have stayed in South Lake Tahoe. The biggest downside was the helicopter noise. It is random, as it is emergency for the hospital down the road and one night was pretty constant until 1am. Other nights, none.
This is a new Resort. We really like the promise of what this should become and hope to stay here regularly. That said, here is our review: The space: This park provides a concrete pad bordered by 5-6 foot strips of landscaping between spaces, a four sided picnic table, nice but immature landscaping, dependable WiFi, and acceptable cable. While not tight, the space could be a bit wider to provide a more comfortable outside patio experience. The space is about the width of a double car driveway and with both slides out the patio is kind of small. Our toad fit nicely in front of the Motorhome, but would not have fit along side. We had a back-in space, the pull thru's appeared a bit more roomy. The facilities: The facilities are new and very nice. The pools and spa are delightful. One is about 40 x 16 or so and great for laps. The lounge is a great place to unwind, and meet people and get info about the area. Bathrooms and showers are the nicest we've seen. Two big downsides: The biggest downside is the traffic noise. When freeway side planting matures, it will help. We resorted to leaving a fan on at night to mask the noise and enable us to sleep. That worked pretty well. Additionally, The dog park is large and fenced, with some immature trees but the surface is bark and the potential for splinters in the dogs paws worries me. The staff: The staff is the friendliest we've run across in our travels and the fact that they are knowledgeable about the area is a huge plus. We will stay here again.
Each site provides only a gravel pad and a picnic table. The Wi-Fi was good, TV reception acceptable. The picnic table is unusable as it is pushed up against the separating fence to provide room for the RV. Spaces are tight. Our coach spanned boundary to boundary with the slides out and the awning extended. The traffic noise from the 89 is at best annoying. If you are having trouble sleeping, it will keep you up. There is no accommodation for late check-in as they escort you to you site. Logistically, that is necessary as the park is poorly laid out and it's difficult to pick out your spot. There are many permanent residents and their spaces are not well maintained and neither is the park, poor roads and many weeds. The office staff is very friendly. We chose this park based on reviews and a view from Google Earth based on a name search. The view was actually of J & H down the road. There is no dog area, but there is a trail through the forest our dog enjoyed. We would not stay here again.
This was an overnight stop over for us. Our first concern was how tight the spaces are. On the positive side, they are set-up back to back so you are not dining outside next to your neighbors sewer hook--up. But We were worried that we would have to unhook the tow vehicle just to leave the site, but fortunately for us, our back neighbor left before us giving us the space to make to our turn with the tow vehicle to exit. Each site provides a gravel driveway for the RV and a lawn and picnic table, although our neighbor in the front seemed to have claimed both of them. There seemed to be many long term residents and it seems as though they tried to get as many unit's in as little space as possible. The park is located on the frontage road to the i-15 and we found the traffic noise to be unbearable. The dog was too frightened by traffic noise to use the dog area. We would look for an alternative if going through there again.
Each site provides a gravel driveway for the RV, a concrete pad for the picnic table and patio and a curbed lawn and 2 trees. The Wi-Fi is good, cable was acceptable, no high definition channels, though. The park is well maintained, and the office staff is plentiful and pleasant. The park is quiet and feels like a nice neighborhood. This rating would be a 10, but there is no fenced off-leash dog area, but that said, the dog thoroughly enjoyed the wooded dog walk area.
We stayed in the Upper section. The nicely landscaped and well-maintained sites provide a nice concrete pad for the RV and patio. The location is very convenient to Park City and Historic Park City. The dog really liked the fenced off-leash dog run. The park is located on the frontage road adjacent to the I-80 freeway and we found the traffic noise to be unbearable. The office staff seemed somewhat arrogant. The Wi-Fi was good and reliable, but only to be used to check e-mail, per the staff. They are begrudgingly pet friendly, insisting their pet policy is very strict, requiring a separate document for pet rules to be signed. They are pretty standard and not well enforced. The laundry room and bathroom were dirty. No cable, but over the air channels were sufficient. We would look elsewhere if coming to visit Park City again.
Nice park, very well maintained, in fact they were already grooming our site after we pulled out while we were connecting the tow car. Office staff was very friendly, even came out to our site within the first hour to make sure everything was ok. We stayed in a corner river site. These are all gravel, something we don't care for, but the site was very big and comfortable complete with picnic table, fire ring and a nice big shade tree. They have a rock wall between these sites and the river, so river access is not right behind you even though the river is, but the pathway is not too far away. Sites off the river have concrete pads, lawns, picnic tables and a fire ring. Wi-Fi was great, cable was poor, limited over the air tV channels and we had no AT&T cell coverage. The off leash dog runs are small and all gravel. Our dog preferred other locations as did many other dogs in the park. We would stay here again.
Beautiful gated park, well maintained. Front desk staff very nice. We really appreciated the staging area to disconnect the tow car. Their staff took our tow dolly to storage and had it waiting for us when we requested it prior to our departure again in a great staging area to reconnect it. We were escorted to our site which was a "no build-out" site. It was completely private with a beautiful lawn and patio and a full level concrete slab for the coach. We believe it was in the middle of being improved as we saw some sites that were just pads grass and trees (still nice). We kept falling off of the Wi-Fi signal. But the HD cable was great. We would have rated this resort a 10, but there is no fenced off-leash dog run, something we would expect in a luxury resort.
This park offers various levels of sites. We stayed in a premium back-in site, and that is what we are reviewing here. The site provided a small concrete patio, two shade trees and a bit of lawn. The site was nice and roomy and we were lucky enough to have nothing on the other side of the road but a nice oak grove giving us a relaxing view. Office staff was pleasant, it was quiet, and convenient to Grass Valley and Auburn. There appear to be many long term folks in this area of the park. The park is nicely kept. We will definitely stay here again.
This park provides a picnic table and a fire ring at the site. The sites are cramped, we were able to extend our slides, but we're not able to extend our awning. The outside area allocated for the table and fire ring was so narrow that that the fire ring was almost on the street, and the table too close to the neighboring sewer. Some sites appeared to be larger with more room, but not many. It is across the street from the lake making access very convenient and there is a bus stop across the street as well. The beach was crowded, but it was during summer vacation. We will stay elsewhere next time we head up to Lake Tahoe.
This park provided a site with a small concrete patio, a picnic table and shade. It is easy to get both in and out of. It is right on the highway, which makes it very convenient, but not very quiet. The dog area is a nice grassy area with shade trees, it is not fenced and it is right next to the street which scared our dog. The office staff was very friendly. The Wi-Fi was reliable as was the cable TV. it was a great place to stay overnight. We will definitely stay here again.
We selected this park because it was close to the entrance to Bryce and advertises a Bryce Canyon shuttle stop. This place puts the verb "park" in RV park. It was like being in a big parking lot. We stayed in the newer area that looks like it was cleared, hook-ups installed and a handfull of trees planted. The spaces were wide, though not well marked. There was no way to enjoy sitting outside. The place is so big that you have to drive to the shuttle stop eliminating the advantage of having it. Trash was not conveniently located, and the wi-fi was useless. The area was quiet.
We stayed in the "owners" section of this park. The spaces are large with level concrete pads, many landscaped to enhance the site. We enjoyed sitting outside here. The off-leash dog area was a favorite of our dog's. This section is $10 more per night than the regular section and in our opinion, it is worth the extra money for the extra space and the terrific dog area. Great wifi and HD cable TV.
Our reservations were not noted correctly, so when we called to confirm, they made sure we had a spot, but moved us up to the "premium" section for big rigs that had no shade, not even a tree. The site was so uncomfortable that we never even retrieved our chairs from the storage compartment. I can say that the people running it were nice. We would not stay there again.
Great location. Very convenient to shuttles and general store. That said, the park is poorly maintained. It is run by the same facility management company that run the hotels and this seems to be a stepchild. Unlike the hotels, there is no Wi-Fi and phone coverage is poor. The provided table is in need of sanding and paint, roads are shabby and have many potholes, and plants are struggling. If going to the Grand Canyon, we would stay there again, but just because of the location.
