Undoubtedly the worst RV Park that we've ever stayed in! Awful! Overcrowded, cars and trucks parked all over the place on the roads, so those that were pulling in couldn't get past the vehicles, and they had to go around knocking on all the RVs, Trailers & 5th wheels to ask the owners to move their trucks so that they could try to back into their site. We watched this couple struggle to get their 5th wheel in for ages. Terrible! Children and dogs running everywhere with bikes and scooters just sitting on the roads and security didn't care. We had to pay $25.00 extra to 'reserve' a site and they located us in an area where getting out was almost impossible due to all of the vehicles parked on the road. We ended up damaging the back of our RV on a low hanging branch on the corner of the road as I was trying to avoid hitting parked cars and children. Their staff is non-caring and rude. It's located right next to the busy 101 freeway and a freeway exit/onramp, so no matter what site you're parked in you'll hear freeway noise 24 hours a day. They don't enforce any type of 'quiet time' so we had music, screaming and yelling well after midnight. They give you these stupid cheap paper wristbands to wear 24 hours a day, and I don't know why as no one ever checked them and 99% of the people weren't wearing them. Then when we went to leave, a guy was hitching up his tow vehicle right at the exit, and the rude security guy told me that I needed to back up and wait!?! Why would he let them block the exit to let someone hook up their tow vehicle? Greedy, overpriced, overcrowded, badly maintained and nasty personnel all around. Bathroom doors propped open so anyone could see the showers in use! All they care about is getting as many people in as possible. Probably several safety and fire code violations involved here. God help anyone trying to get out in an emergency! We will never ever go there again, and I recommend avoiding this place like the plague! We camped at Ventura Beach RV Resort in a Motorhome.
The City of Ventura, which has cool little stores and lots of great restaurants, is close by but we'd stay in a Hotel or Motel rather than at Ventura RV Park. Homeless/transients tend to congregate at that end of town near the Burger King which isn't too far from the RV Park.
