June 2019 - 2 Nights We had intended to stay at Durango RV for four nights and explore the Sacramento River area and enjoy their pool. However, a heatwave was rolling in. We didn't want to stay there for 107 degree days so, we decided to leave early. The RV park itself is very nice and the pool area is fabulous. Unfortunately, the river walk path is littered with abandoned shopping carts from the homeless that hang around there. We booked a fountain site instead of a river view site because of reviews that I read of homeless activity near the river. All of the Sacramento River parks that we visited had clusters of homeless hanging out, and I did not feel safe. We would stay here again as a pass-through park, but not as a destination.
June 2018 & February 2019 We've found this KOA to be a great stop on our way home after a long day of driving. The pull-through sites have plenty of space for out RV and toad. It was really hot in the summer, so we enjoyed cooling off in their swimming pool. Across the highway is Peggy Sue's Diner. Not to be missed - great food and a fun atmosphere!
June 2018 - 5 Nights Overall, this was a really nice place. There are many riverside sites that are beautiful, but not all would fit a 40' RV. There are a variety of different types of sites and many have full-hookups. However, only a few sites have 50 amp. We booked a 50 amp pull-through site and it was very tight (#38). It was the most difficult site to get into and out of for the entire trip. We had to back out - no way we could pull-through. There were a few other 50 amp sites that were roomier (22 & 46), but we made our site work. The place really cleared out on Sunday, so it was nice to have more space! They have a swimming hole area in the river that was just fantastic!
June 2018 - 4 Nights I loved this little resort! There were only about a dozen full-hookup RV spots and the rest were cabins. We had site #4, It was just enough room and had a little drainage creek right behind us. There was even a pool! It was hot in Yosemite, so we used that pool every day. Since it was so small, we met a lot of our neighbors. A family from Denmark had the site right next to us. We were told that this is the last season for this lovely little place since they have been sold and will close down for a year and be converted into a much larger KOA. However, the last I checked, they were still open.
June 2018 - 1 Night I didn't take any pictures! We stayed at here at site #29 for just one night to break up the drive from Hat Creek to Yosemite. It was great to be out of the dirt and on a concrete pad! We used the opportunity to use their laundry room to wash towels, sheets, and the rest of our clothes all at once. We love having a washer and dryer in our coach, but the units are small. We went to Walmart to stock up and cleaned out the inside of our RV. Then we went out to dinner! As we travel in the future, I plan to book commercial RV parks like this for a few days in between vacation destinations to shop, clean, and rest. This was a great stop!
June 2018 - 3 Nights We chose this RV park primarily because it's the closest RV park to the north entrance of Lassen National Park. We enjoyed our site with full hookups (#19). The campsite was very woodsy and private since it was at the back of the RV park, and it was really close to the Pacific Crest Trail! The creek area is lovely, and there are many creek sites available on the other side of the park, although they are close to the road. There are cabins, yurts, and a small motel too. At one time this was probably was a really nice "resort", but now it's definitely showing its age. There are many lights not working at night along the camp roads, projects started and abandoned throughout the park, piles of dirt/tree trimmings abandoned, and even a pile of old mattresses next to one of the campground roads that we passed by daily. I would consider staying at one of the back campsites again if I was planning to spend time at the Manzanita Lake area of Lassen. Otherwise, I'd probably choose Rancheria RV Park which is about 10 miles away.
February 2018 - 2 Nights We stayed at Santee Lakes for two nights right after we picked up our new RV from La Mesa in San Diego. It was a really nice place to stay, and I would definitely stay again. It's very big with many lakefront sites, and there are full hookups. I didn't take many pictures since we were primarily focused on the inside of our new coach.
