We stayed two nights two weeks apart. Both times we stayed at the far edge away from the freeway and did not hear any freeway noise. There are street/flood lights that provide enough light to walk your dogs at night and see what is going on around you. You can park close to the road along with most other campers or stay further out on the fringe and keep some space between you an others. There was no problem finding a flat spot to park, and our neighbors were quiet. I like this parking lot for one or two night stays and will use it again.
Great staff and park. We had a broken spring shackle that could not be repaired quickly, they let us stay free for an extra night even though we told them we could pay. We slipped the money under the office door before they opened in the morning. A true Good Sam park. Lots of room to maneuver the 5th wheel into a pull through concrete pad. Shady, big area for dog walking with easy access to trash. Clean showers and facilities. Small country store next door and several truck stops with easy diesel access. Pea Soup Andersons across I-5. Not a resort but a very pleasant place to stay. We generally stop here to overnight before tackling the bay area traffic the next morning.
We were there for 10 days visiting relatives. The park is mostly a mobile home park but has several RV sites (10 or more) for overnight or extended stays. Paved slabs and gravel parking. Good shade trees around area. Mostly working families in the park and very friendly staff and neighbors. We and the dogs made friends within hours of parking. The address is 2399 E 14th St San Leandro, CA 94577. A great RV supply store is up the street at 15180 E. 14th and downtown San Leandro has a wide variety of restaurants. Besides no cable another negative (or positive to some) was the smell of roasting chocolate. A chocolate factory is near by and the smell, when the wind was right, reminded me of someone burning brownies. Not a strong smell but noticeable. Another issue for some will be the working folks getting up and on the road each morning. I was up walking the dogs anyway but, if you like to sleep in, you would hear cars, trucks, and motorcycles going by each morning. I liked the place and will return on my next trip to the Bay area. Not an RV resort though.
We called and were told full hook-up sites were available for $25/night. When we arrived we were offered a back lot site still supposedly with full hook-up and wi-fi, supposedly for the benefit of our dogs. It was dusk and when we got to the site I unhooked and began to set up. Found out the cable did not work and there was no sewer after all. The water and electric worked, and wifi was available. We were told no refund or reduced price because "we already ran your credit card". We stayed one night and left. I think the park mislead us.
Easy access and large pull through sites. Very little vegetation but it is the desert. BLM land adjacent for dog walking. Good Wi-Fi and cell phone connections. Some highway noise but not much and a military discount for ID card holders. Very good stop over location. We only stayed one night but the neighbors and staff were friendly and helpful.
This campground is 14 miles away from any amenities. A quiet woods setting with mostly back-in sites. Narrow access road but it's passable. I had a 30ft 5th Wheel in a pull through site (5) with no problems other than the weather. Due to rain and wind the park closed the morning after we arrived. No problem getting a refund for the remainder of our stay and the rangers were very helpful. If the weather had been better and we were not planning daily activities in town it would have been a 8-9 rating. A good park to get away from the city but not a good place to visit the bay area. We did have Verizon cell coverage but no Wi-Fi.
The RV park is for ID card holders only but the Marina is open to the public. The 15 full hook-up sites ($12) are paved sites with gravel/rock landscaping and are located on the top of a windy ridge. The 5 water/electric only sites ($10) have paved pads with grass, trees and covered pavilions. They are off the ridge top and have some protection from the prevailing southeast winds. There are also cabins for rent ($27.50) and the management (US Air Force) has moved some FEMA trailers into 4 of the RV full hook-up sites to rent ($25) as cabins also. Tent sites with no hook-ups and picnic tables are available and frequently used on weekends for local family get-to-gathers. The cable service is terrible and does not include any local stations, so you need a NOAA radio to find out what the weather will be. The ridge top sites are almost always windy and 30-40 mph is not uncommon. There is a great dog walking area but keep a good grip on the leash if your dog likes to chase deer. Deer, armadillo, skunks, etc. are all abundant in the area and will get into anything left out. Nice in winter, hot in summer, and a good fishing spot all year.
We stayed in the E/W hoop-up loop, on a first come/first serve site, and had a great view of the lake. The lake gets crowded on weekends but during the week is mostly deserted. The E/W hook-up loop of the campground was full and stays that way through most of the summer, but the electric only sites never seemed to fill up. I guess we were lucky to get a site. A good fishing lake, in beautiful country. The Abiquiu store has everything you may need and is about a 15 min drive.
The park looks like a big gravel oblong driveway but when you pull in you notice there are hook-ups under the bushes on either side of the drive. The owner came out and helped us get turned around which for a 30ft 5th Wheel was a bit of a tight fit. The park is across the street from the National Forest Ranger Station and just south of the highway junction that is Pecos, NM. The park was very quiet. The town does not have a leash law so all the dogs in town wander over to see what is going on and see if they can get a ear scratch. Fishing in the Pecos is the main attraction and the weather, even in summer, is cool. We would stay again and, while not a premier RV park, it was a great visit for us.
Watch out for gopher holes under your landing gear and stabilizers. Some sites have the sewer hook-up on the opposite side of the RV from the water/electric. The base has a indoor pool and full support facilities i.e. gym, BX, commissary, clinic, gas station, craft shops, outdoor rec. etc.
Our favorite I-10 stop over. Easy in and out, not too near freeway, lots of dog walking area, cable, and a honor system of pick your own spot after office hours. The only reason I do not give it a 9 or 10 is the gravel and clay sites can be a mess after a rain and there is no shade. For us the price and convenience makes it unbeatable in the region.
