We stayed 8 nights this time. Rating increased due to some changes and services offered but the physical design of the park as previously described will always limit the rating.
The park allowed us to use their address to receive a couple of packages which arrived ahead of us. They held them for us. The onsite restaurant is a nice feature. They even have take out but no delivery.
The park’s occupancy was influenced on the weekend by the local university’s home football game. There were a few changes from our last stay. The surface of the dog park has been changed to a decomposed granite & grass surface. It handled the water better but still had some standing water after rain. A gas fired fire pit was being installed by the covered pavilion. It seems the only rule which was seen being enforced was the speed limit. Park signs say the speed limit is 10 MPH but the written rules say it is 5 MPH. Saw a couple of sites violating the maximum capacity per site rule of 1 RV & 1 ‘tow’ vehicle and of course there were a couple sites violating the pet leash requirement including a park host. Witnessed a couple of coaches scrape/drag mud flaps due to the pitch of the road into the drains. The police department patrols the park & business facilities quite a bit.
RV’s over 10 years old require management approval which was handled by emailing a photograph of our 2004 Beaver Monterey motorhome.
We stayed 6 nights waiting for appointments in the area (7th night would have been free). We had made reservations by phone the morning of our arrival as online reservations cost a $5.00 fee.
The park access is off a 4 lane highway (HWY 99). The park is located in town so it is close to services.
Check in is in the Travel Center. We arrived midday on a weekday. There were multiple check in parking lanes but only 1 was available as the others were full. Access to & from the park requires negotiating the parking lot of the T/C and the adjacent RV sales/maintenance lot with several sharp 90 degree turns.
The interior roads are paved. They are sufficient width making maneuvering larger RV’s pretty easy but they are pitched to direct water run-off into drains. There is a mixture of back-ins and pull sites. A few of P/T sites were long enough to say connected to a toad but the placement of the utilities made it difficult to stay connected. The RV sites have sufficient width to open slides. The space between sites is established by distance and grassy areas. The parking pads are concrete. This park didn’t seem to understand the simple concept of the importance of a flat, level site as almost all of the sites have a bi-directional slope. Only a handful of the back in sites appeared generally level and flat. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (50/30/20 AMP), & sewer. The utility connections were towards the end of the sites creating sewer flow and hose/cable length issues. The sewer connection was above ground making it difficult to establish a downhill flow depending on discharge point. Sites have an outside table but no fire pits. Site orientation doesn’t allow RV’s to cast shade onto the patio side. There was some train & plane noise as the park is under the flight path of the local airport.
No vegetation (trees & bushes) so there is nothing to interfere with satellite reception. No cable. Didn’t try to get any OTA channels as on our previous stay the channel selection was limited to 10 to 11 channels of which only 2 were major networks (ABC & CBS). There were 4 PBS channels but 2 were duplicates.
The park provided WiFi was good. It is password protected. Our Verizon WiFi hotspot worked well. Didn’t try the NET10 phone so don’t know about cell phone reception.
The designated fenced pet area was centrally located but the ground was so wet it was very soft. There were bag dispensers and collection stations for waste around the park. There was sufficient area to walk dogs along the park’s roads & the adjacent facility grounds.
We would limit stays to no more than a week if the need to be in the area arose again.
