While the folks who helped us at the RV campground were extremely nice, courteous and helpful, don't expect much more than a gravel site. Although the freeway was nearby, the noise did not bother us at night -- perhaps because it is situated at the bottom of the hill. We heard the railroad once, but it was pleasant. The laundry room was clean and the Internet worked great. This is a pleasant place to stay for one night only.
The best things about this RV park are their proximity to the beach, downtown Ventura, a clean laundry room and nice bike trails. But, with the intense pickiness of the check-in staff, the road noise from the freeway, the short sites, the non-refundable deposits, we would never stay here again. First, we were given a spot we just would not fit in (even though we had given them our vehicle and RV size). They acted like they were doing us a big favor by "allowing us to move." There were sites available we would easily fit into, but they would not let us into them, even though they stayed open during our entire stay. My husband (normally a terminally nice, easy-going guy) said he never wants to stay here again and this has never happened before in 30 years of marriage. Unfortunately, there are few good choices in the Ventura/Oxnard area. Our experience was so poor that we canceled later reservations (yes, with a non-refundable fee).
This is a huge RV park along the river with dozens of RVs ranging from Scamps to the biggest of big rigs. Only a few sites are close to the river, with the majority having plenty of room for slides, etc. Most of the patrons were very friendly and the office staff was helpful, friendly and had a great sense of humor. This is a great place to go if you want to walk around and talk with other RV'ers or if you want to sit on a nice afternoon along the river. The RV park is not actually along the river front walk if that is what you are looking for, you'll need to get in your car for that. I would stay here again, but only if I had extra time to explore "CDA".
This is one of the biggest and best KOAs we've stayed in, despite the fact that it is mostly a parking lot. The proximity to good shopping -- everything from Costco to crafts -- and nice walking trails gives it high marks. The sites were big and wide. The facilities were clean. The Verizon coverage was great. And, there were plenty of the amenities our kids prefer. If you want the walking trails, head downtown to the UoM area, where the trails follow the river. If you want good restaurants, there are plenty within walking distance of the RV park. Do NOT expect nature at this KOA or you will be keenly disappointed. We stayed one night and would stay again if we needed to reprovisioning for Yellowstone!
The best thing about this campground is it's proximity to the beautiful Tetons, a great bike trail and Jackson, Wyoming. The campground has nice, grassy sites with trees and grass. It is far enough away from the road that most sites do not have road noise. It is one of the few campgrounds that actually recycle a variety of materials. We had great Verizon coverage and the free Wi-Fi worked well enough to run You Tube. We would stay here again.
