I write a LOT of reviews. I thought this one was going to be hard, but it's not. I won't stay here again. I have stayed a few times on trips to and from CA, it has been serviceable with decent sites and hook-ups, not friendly, but efficient staff. Too many abrupt speed bumps for common sense. This trip I stayed twice, showed up after hours on the way back. Apparently the staff puts an e-card for the laundry in your packet. If you don't open your packet, read all enclosed information, or use... Read More

I have stayed a few times on trips to and from CA, it has been serviceable with decent sites and hook-ups, not friendly, but efficient staff. Too many abrupt speed bumps for common sense. This trip I stayed twice, showed up after hours on the way back. Apparently the staff puts an e-card for the laundry in your packet. If you don't open your packet, read all enclosed information, or use ANY of the facilities, I'm not sure how you would know the card was in it. Several hours and several hundred miles after check out I get a $5.00 charge on my credit card. I call the RV park and am told the charge was my fault, the packet told me to return the card. The condescending man I spoke with all but said I apparently was stupid for not returning the .12 cent card and would be punished with a $5.00 charge. I can deal with it being my responsibility. I got complacent and didn't read the whole packet. Seems like an easy way to make an extra couple of bucks. I would never talk to one of my customers like they were stupid. So, good luck to them and anyone who ventures to stay. There are other more reasonably priced parks in the area. PS: I have mailed the card back. I will write another review if I see a credit on my account. Bet I won't have to write another review.

Clean, well maintained, however The TV connection only has 11 channels of which 8 of them are fuzzy and not watchable. So, with no TV to watch I switched to getting on my laptop. Almost as bad as the TV. Slow even using email and after about 5 minutes it gets even slower. Being one of the higher priced RV parks around, you would expect decent cable and internet. If you're going to stay here make sure you have a good book!

Extremely nice campground. Very well maintained. Only stayed one night while passing through Redding but would definitely stay again. Restroom/showers were among the nicest we've seen....super clean and nice sized showers. We were in a pull through site that was nice and roomy and had a nice shade tree. Pool area nice and clean also.

Very nice RV park. Extremely well maintained. Seemingly well run. Nicely landscaped & treed. Small pool area. Sites are nicely spaced, and perimeter sites have extra privacy. Wifi connects easily, but is pretty slow. The only negative we found... The off-leash dog areas are appropriate only for small dogs seems like there's plenty of room for a real dog run to be created. We would return.

This is generally a very nice park. I had previously stayed in a pull through site in the more mature portion of the park and really enjoyed it. This time we stayed in a Deluxe Site in the newer portion of the park. I called in advance to request a change in our site since the weather forecast showed 105 plus degree weather during the week of our stay. We were told we had trees on the site we were assigned to and would have shade so it wouldn't be a problem. When we arrived, we were located in... Read More

This is generally a very nice park. I had previously stayed in a pull through site in the more mature portion of the park and really enjoyed it. This time we stayed in a Deluxe Site in the newer portion of the park. I called in advance to request a change in our site since the weather forecast showed 105 plus degree weather during the week of our stay. We were told we had trees on the site we were assigned to and would have shade so it wouldn't be a problem. When we arrived, we were located in a site without a single tree. The Deluxe sites face the afternoon, setting sun and are blistering hot in the summer. Since they don't allow you to put shade structures on the lawn, our canopy just barely fit on the small patio pad and had to be right up against the RV along with the table and other items. We had little space to really enjoy the site. The grass area is a nice play area for the children though. We would not stay in this portion of the park except in the winter when you want the sun. Another note, the exit to the park sits at a sharp angle to Boulder. Boulder has a blind curve just above the entrance to the park. We almost had an accident leaving the park when a high speed truck came racing down the road. Most drivers take the curve fairly slowly so it's not a problem but be aware!

The camp is beautiful, but I wouldn't recommend tent camping here. My family and I planned to stop here for a couple nights toward the end of a six-week camping trip through the Northwest. We'd spent some time previously at the Premiere RV Resort location in Salem, Oregon, and had a wonderful experience. The staff in Salem were very accommodating and our RVing neighbors were nice. (It's fall, so there weren't a lot of other tent campers.) We arrived and checked in at the Premier RV Park in Redding,... Read More

The camp is beautiful, but I wouldn't recommend tent camping here. My family and I planned to stop here for a couple nights toward the end of a six-week camping trip through the Northwest. We'd spent some time previously at the Premiere RV Resort location in Salem, Oregon, and had a wonderful experience. The staff in Salem were very accommodating and our RVing neighbors were nice. (It's fall, so there weren't a lot of other tent campers.) We arrived and checked in at the Premier RV Park in Redding, CA and set up our tent. At check-in there'd been an unusual comment made to us -- they said that they don't normally rent out the tent sites unless you know someone already staying in the RV park. We thought that was weird, but other than that they were pleasant so we didn't think too much of it. After setting up, we realized there's water but no electric at the site. That's okay, we normally prefer to stay at sites that offer electric but we'd forgotten to check. The camp site in Salem had allowed us to run an extension cord to the nearest electrical outlet even though it wasn't available right at our site, so I guess we'd mistakenly thought something similar would be available in Redding also. I'm not blaming Premier for that part we should've checked. Anyway, we were traveling with our dog and two-year-old son, both of whom refuse to sleep under covers, so we thought we'd ask about running an extension cord to the nearest building so we could use our heater to stay warm at night. My husband and son stopped by the office to ask about this . and they were treated horribly. One of the managers very coldly stated that our camp site was a primitive camp site and doesn't have electricity. My husband said he understood that, but our site was right next to an outlet, so he was just asking that we could use that to run our heater for the night so our son could stay warm. The manager said, "If you wanted electricity, you should've gotten a hotel." To my knowledge, there aren't any tent sites available with electricity. So it's not like we weren't willing to pay for that if it was available. We'd have even given them some cash for use of the electricity for the night if that was a problem. When we were in Salem, we had employees repeatedly stop by to make sure we were staying warm and even offer us use of their own space heaters. But the manager, for whatever reason, seemed incensed that we would ask for this accommodation. I don't understand why it was such a big deal. But the way she talked to us, it was like we were vagrants trying to panhandle at their camp site instead of paying guests. And just on a human level, it appalls me that she's more concerned with proving a point than whether a two-year-old sleeps in the cold all night and gets sick. I really can't understand this. When I heard what happened, I went into the office and insisted on a refund. If she wanted us to stay in a hotel, then that's what we would do. It's unfortunate because our entire family absolutely loves camping. My son is a big fan of the outdoors, and hotels really don't offer anything for him to do but watch TV. But I couldn't handle the idea of letting them treat us like that and still keep our money. This is the first time I'd had any contact with this manager or anyone else from the office, since my husband had checked us in. But she knew exactly who I was and began processing the refund immediately, even though she complained that they didn't do refunds. (Obviously, they do.) I told her she'd been really rude to my husband and that wasn't okay, and she instantly turned defensive, loud, and belligerent. (I could've imagined someone else responding, "Sorry it seemed that way, but .. " or something polite to smooth things over.) She insisted she hadn't been rude and wanted to play me the security footage to prove it, then stated two managers had been present at the time. She rehashed that electric isn't included in our site, which I said I understood but just didn't appreciate how rude she was about it, especially suggesting we should've gotten a hotel. She kept arguing with me. Then -- this was the worst part -- a man walked in (I think this may have been the other manager, but I'm not sure) and the manager said to him, "The TENT PEOPLE are leaving." Tent people. Are we human garbage or something?. This manager seemed pretty confident she wasn't going to get into any trouble over this, even handed me her business card. Maybe she's right. I can only assume there are owners or some type of higher management above her, especially considering that this is a park with multiple locations. I don't know if they have the same attitudes she does or not. I hope they don't. I don't know why any RV park owner would want to deter tent campers, since it's almost free money for them. The tent sites would just be sitting empty, and we were there to pay to use them. If they don't want to rent out tent sites though, they should just remove those from their booking site. No big deal. But to treat someone like they're sub-human just because they're choosing to camp in a tent instead of an RV? Awful. I can only assume this woman doesn't believe in any type of karma or god because if she thought her actions would come back around in any way she wouldn't act this way. I don't know what more to say. I'm angry, but I really just hope to stop anyone else from going through this. Please don't tent camp here. And if you're RVing you'll probably have a better experience, but please be aware that you're supporting a place that looks down on people that don't have thousands of dollars to spend on a nice camper.

This place has gone way down hill in every way. Mangers do not know how to treat customers. I won't be back! On a couple of occasions I have witnessed arguments and drunkenness. Place is run down. If they do do any work its on a Saturday morning loud and clear and around your trailer.

We stayed at this park for the first night and then again the last night of a month long trip. Both times we found the staff friendly and helpful. The park itself is clean and neat with sites that are level and fairly roomy. Location makes for easy access to the many outdoor recreation spots in the region as well as easy access to Redding itself.

Great park-clean and very nice restrooms, pool was warm, trees. Only complaint was that there were 3 RV's booked together in April for a July stay (we were told we would be together) arrived together and they separated us.

We HIGHLY recommend this RV camping location! The manager/owner is friendly, helpful and takes pride in his business. The campground is quiet, extremely clean, beautiful and the individual sites are appropriately spaced for privacy. The location to Lake Shasta is perfect for day trips to the lake. We are marking Redding Premier RV Resort as one of our "will return" locations!

Stayed here before and returned again. Easy access to and from I-5. Nice place, friendly staff, clean restrooms and showers. A little pricy compared to others but you know everything is going to work with no problems. Will stop again when going thru the area.

Just stayed here for a couple of nights passing thru, but the staff was very friendly and accommodating. We were able to get satellite reception, cell service and WiFI using our hotspot, we did not use the park internet. Site was long enough for our 40' motorhome and tow car and had some grass and a small table. We were able to get in and out of the site with our car connected.

Close to I5, but quiet, nice long pull through site and shade trees all around. Grass and concrete patio for our site. Will definitely stay here again on trips north.

The staff is very helpful and friendly. The campground and facilities very clean and quiet, only half a mile from Interstate 5. There are three Premier RV Resorts in Oregon, I plan to visit them in the future.
