I agree with the previous reviewers. It's a good place to stop and rest after a long day. Very clean and nice wide/long spots. Besides, there's not many other choices out here in Nowhereville. The managers were very helpful and friendly. Would definitely stay there again, if in the area at the right time of day.
Basic. Nothing really special. Has lots of trees, big rocks, and grass everywhere. Tight spots, especially considering the trees and boulders. Of course, the grass areas need to be watered, so beware of "errant rainbirds" interrupting your camping experience, when you least expect it. This is listed as a Good Sam CG, but they wouldn't accept ours, or any other membership, because "of the size of our rig." Despite almost the exact same overall situation a year ago when our GS membership was accepted with the same rig. Hmmmm. I've given them a generous '8' and wouldn't have increased it even if there wasn't the discount problem. I doubt we'll be stopping here again.
Passing through the area. Stayed 1 night. Just OK but, it kind of irked me when I saw their many Good Sam banners all over the place, and they wouldn't accept Good Sam membership discounts, because we were lucky to get in. The place was full for a "special area event." Lots of rules. Site pads (concrete) are not very wide and despite a rule to park on the pad, modern rigs are just barely able to accomplish that because the pads are very narrow. Dogs must use the dog area for their business and be on a leash at all times. OK with that. Given that a dog can't read, they don't always obey the business part. Saw some dog owners that I assume can read, ignoring the leash and 'pick-up-after Fido' rules. This place is well-maintained, but appears old and close-in crowded. Probably won't stay here again.
This was our 2nd year in this park. Stayed 5 nights (to visit relatives in Grass Valley) and would have stayed longer except the campground was to be closed for an up-coming event. I would give it a '9' or '10' if the campsites were better maintained. The same ankle-busting pot-holes as a year ago, and remnants of someone's campfire on the grass (ashes and burnt debris) from who-knows-when. I didn't think campfires were even allowed in our spot: especially given the drought the trees have suffered in recent years. The fairgrounds are well-maintained and have a Disneyland appearance, so we can't understand why the campground appears to be somewhat neglected (trash, dog waste, pot-holes, etc.) We would definitely like to return in the future. It's a beautiful spot, with nice people working here.
Very nice setting in the mountains north west of Reno. Wide, long, pull-throughs (back-ins looked like they had similar spacious sites). Restaurant has reasonable food at reasonable prices. Casino has good smoke-venting. Employees are helpful and friendly. Stayed 2 nights - would have stayed another couple but, rates were going to be raised significantly (nearly doubled) because there was a "special-event" in the area (a car show or something in Reno), that according to the front desk, had absolutely nothing to do with the Resort. We would gladly stay there again, but not at "special-event" rates. (It was sort of fun to watch all the folks quickly clear out of the camp area, when they found out about the up-coming "special event" rate increase.)
Stayed 5 nights. Enough time to smell the duck droppings and sewer hookups. For some reason, the sewer stink was especially strong near the park entrance. Don't fall/jump in the lake: yikes! The park is very park-like but, the wandering duck population like to hide their "presents" in all the grass areas and if (when) your shoes come in contact with grass (impossible to avoid), you're sure to gain a farm-like aroma inside your rig. Employees are helpful and friendly. The casino restaurant food reminds me of military chow and seems more than a little expensive compared to the "quality" of a place like Denny's. Pull-through sites are large with adequate grass (warning, be careful where step) areas between each. TV cable service was "down." They do not claim to have cable, so maybe they should remove the old cable connector from their hookup boxes. No Wi-Fi (except in the office/lounge). If you are 'lucky' enough to get on the net, expect low-speed modem-type/dial-up speeds. Their website looks good but, don't try to make reservations at it because "it's not 'ready' yet." The casino (cough, cough) could use some smoke venting: smells like a full ashtray. I'm not anti-smoker: I smoked for nearly 40 years and could hardly breath there. Overall, I expected more of an award-winning site. Pretty oasis in the desert, but not worth another stay here for me and my wife, but I will be generous and give it a "6".
Called ahead for same-day reservation and directions. Had problems connecting by phone: the line was usually busy. GS TL had wrong directions, but understandable since roads are changing in the area. Was told office would be closed at 4:30. We were on the 'wrong' end of town due to 'erroneous' directions; consequently we were not able to make this early office closing time limit. However, upon arrival, we were met by a very friendly manager who directed us to our site overlooking the RV storage and noisy Hwy. 50/395 intersection. Understandable location, since we were a late arrival. Upon reading the rules, found that one is required to be out by 10AM or forfeit $5/ hour for every partial hour past 10. However, one should note that the office does not open until 9AM! Managed to escape around 10, so didn't have to pay the penalty after all. Good Sam's Trailer Life guide rates this '9' overall: what a joke! It's clean and old, has noise from 395/50 hwys., and is friendly. OK for a one-night stop; maybe a few days if you're into the casino next door. Won't visit again.
