Few amenities but very good for what it is; an affordable stopover or base camp to explore the Bay Area. Level, gravel lot with FHU sites starting at $30 (30 amp 20x40' back-in). Clean and well maintained in a nice, quiet, safe area. Bathrooms are new, spacious, and spotless (there's a $20 deposit for each key card). Good WiFi but no cable or over-the-air network channels. Not sure what things are like when there's an event at the fairgrounds. Preference is given to vendors during the county fair, so you'll have a hard time getting in for 3 weeks in June/July. Enter at Gate 12 off Valley Ave. and drive past the North RV Campground, which is for campers with horses.
Basically a brick parking lot with mostly full-timers. As far as I can tell, they have one spot with TV, but it’s just a few feet from busy, noisy Main St. Don’t believe them when they say it quiets down in the evening. Another spot with partial H/U is maybe half a block away: off Beach St. and probably quieter. Within walking distance of many attractions, well-maintained, clean restrooms/showers, laundry facilities, nice manager, good Wi-Fi and TV reception. Spaces are level and not too tight. Nothing for kids.
I was impressed with this park. Nice, clean, quiet place to stop for a night. Spaces are roomy, level and mostly empty this time of year. Clean restrooms. Agricultural displays are worth a look. Rate is for E&W, FHU is $5 more.
AAA rate. Not sure why this campground has been rated so highly. It's fine, but nothing special. We drove 2 miles off the Interstate because it was supposed to be quiet, but there was significant traffic noise. The light in the laundry room didn't work and the washing machine ate my quarters. Which is probably just as well, because I later found out the water was tea-colored, so we didn't hook up. Wide spaces, friendly staff, pay showers, slooooow WiFi.
Parking lot in a shabby part of town, but seems safe. Very quiet, next to the ocean, wide spaces. Cable TV only available to long-term campers (which most were). Showers were closed for the season. Affordable place for an overnight stay.
In this area, it's hard to find an RV park with full hookups that isn't right off the highway. This park goes farther back than most and road noise was barely noticeable. Friendly staff, pretty park, very clean restrooms (showers 25 cents for 5 minutes), plenty of room, level spots, WiFi and cable TV worked great.
Rate reflects senior discount. What I like most about this park is it's well off the highway and very peaceful/quiet. Deer came quite close to our site in the evening. There are only a handful of sites where we were, and only two others were in use. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful.
Everyone before me, rated this campground a 10, so I wanted to find something to complain about out of sheer perversity. Granted, I like more mature trees and spacious sites. Closer dumpsters and some hiking trails would also be nice. But from the basket of chocolates in the office to perfectly level sites, spotless bathrooms, 5 strong WiFi antennaes, 60+ cable channels and plentiful hooks in the shower, it's clear these owners are focused on the comfort and convenience of their guests. Best of all, it's totally quiet at night. I had to give it a 10 as well.
Rate reflects 10% AAA discount. Nice, clean campground. Quiet, even though it's just off the road. Room between level sites, mostly shaded. Excellent Wi-Fi and cable. My favorite part was seeing a black bear right next to our site.
Nice, shady, quiet campground just outside Charleston. Lots of space between sites. No cable TV, but our antennae picked up several network channels. We don't tow a vehicle, and there are no campgrounds in Charleston or on the bus route. We were concerned about what to do with our cats while we were sightseeing, but the Visitor's Center has covered RV parking for just $10 all day. Although we got hot walking around town, our pets were plenty cool.
We loved this park. It was lovely, clean and quiet. It has a "guest house" with library, big (and I mean BIG) screen TV, laundry room, and individual bathrooms with a toilet, sink and shower. The plantation tour was both humorous and interesting.
Traffic noise is the only downside to this park. It has roomy sites with lawn and trees, spotless restrooms and showers, and a bus stop to downtown conveniently located across the street. Staff was friendly and helpful.
Fabulous park! In site 57 we not only had a great view of the lake, but also of 2 dozen deer in the meadow next to us. Three came up to the edge of our site to feed. Restrooms were spotless. Very quiet at night, motorboat noise during the day.
The only reason I didn't rate this a 10 was because they won't hook up cable TV unless you're staying at least a week and you have to go to the library for free WiFi (otherwise it's fee-based Tengo). Nice, quiet 55+ resort with everything else you could want.
Whoever listed this campground as having cable TV was wrong, so I wanted to correct it. Rate reflects AAA discounts. It's OK for the price. There is moderate highway noise. Park has friendly staff and weak WiFi.
This park was pleasant enough, although the trails were not well maintained. The restrooms in the upper loop were so dirty I refused to use them. The restrooms near the picnic area were closed due to budget cuts, according to the sign. It didn't bother to mention there was another (unmarked) restroom on the other side of the picnic area, which we found by accident, so other visitors were using the bushes. You have to walk to the picnic area to get Wi-Fi. No hookups and you can't run the generator until 10 a.m., which makes for a very chilly morning. There are much nicer places to camp for the money.
I rated this higher because it's such a good value, especially as it includes admission to the Ghost Town (which was rather disappointing). It's just got the essentials: full or partial hookups on gravel/dirt sites, small trees and no landscaping. Bathrooms/showers were concrete, but clean and private. It was quiet except for the wind. The ranger said it's either hot or windy, but I think we got both.
Pros: Quiet, comfortable, lots of shade, close to Columbia State Park, level site with plenty of room. Deer walked into the site next to us and 5 of them were on the volleyball court. Staff was friendly and helpful. Cons: Bathrooms were worn but clean. Only a couple of cable TV channels came in well, and a couple more with static.
Walking distance to cemetery and Virginia City. Some of the nicest restroom/shower facilities we've seen. Lots of amenities, though we didn't use them. Although full, they let us leave our motorhome a couple of hours past check-out so we could run the AC for our pets.
Beautiful park. Lots of room, great view, very quiet, clean, and you can't beat the price for a nice campsite with hookups. We decided at the last minute to stop here for the night, and fortunately they had a cancellation. We were sorry we couldn't stay longer to enjoy it.
This is a good option if you want a place to hookup for the night. The Good: -Great price. -Clean. -It was very quiet on a Tuesday night with no scheduled events. -Even though we showed up at 9 p.m. with no reservation, the friendly on-site caretaker quickly checked us in. -Level. The Bad: -Showers a lengthy walk from campsites. Only 1 woman's shower, with no lock on the door; very secluded and didn't feel safe. -Must climb over a low fence to hook up. Advice: -Don't bother with the information booth, which only gives daytime office numbers. Drive to the caretaker's house behind it. -Try to get a site toward the edge of the fairground (away from caretaker's house). Electricity is unreliable in the closer spots. -It's a gravel lot with no amenities - OK for overnight but not much to do or see unless you're attending an event.
