18 RV Parks near Burson, California
Oct 2018 - $72.00
We come here to this park once a year for our family reunion. This park has struggled with various owners over the years. However, the current owners have put a lot of money into doing upgrades of this park and it shows. Last year, we had our reunion here right after the new owners took over. The cabins were in disrepair and needed new roofs and the interiors were in horrible shape. Over the off season, they did amazing work on the cabins. They look wonderful inside and out. As someone who has visited this park over the last 10 years, this park has been resurrected to one with great WIFI service, solid Cable TV as well as power pedestals that are brand new. The sites are nice and long and though you will have neighbors, you are not on top of one another. This has become a great park with many great amenities added over the years. However, it does not come without a price. This park is a little spendy at $72 a night (Before discounts), but you will definitely enjoy your stay if you are looking for a rustic environment to stay in. Another bonus is they allow any dogs and their owners who are well behaved! - luvdoggiez

My wife, granddaughter and I spent 3 days at Gold Country (GCC). All 3 had a very good time. We were there during the fires in Yosemite and the smoke was strong all 3 days. The RV section of the park was about 80% full and the tent camping portion 20% full. There were people in cabins as well but I know nothing about that. During our stay there were several things we enjoyed. There was a free craft project on Saturday morning where the kids painted little bird houses to take home. Fun and free. We enjoyed the unheated swimming pool and water park. The water park was much better than I anticipated and my granddaughter loved it. We didn't use the game room but it was available. The camp was very quiet at night. During the day there were lots of kids on bikes and people walking small dogs, all very pleasant. There were a couple of weird things. The showers and bathrooms in the camping area were very clean and nice. The shower at the pool was cold water only and not well maintained. The women's bathroom by the pool had human feces on the floor (in a pile according to my wife). Gross! After staff were notified they sent down a crew to clean. It was surprising to us how poorly the pool bathrooms were since the others were nice. We also were frustrated that the store was not always open at the times on the sign. "We are adjusting due to staffing," they say at the front desk. The RV hook-up we had was new and nice. We didn't try the TV or WiFi. Reception for Verizon was good. The site was mostly level and we used a few plastic blocks only. All in all it is a nice park and we will return again. We visited the park in a 30' motorhome and stayed in a 30' deluxe site which was gravel. - RexAdam

No signage at check-in as to where to park upon entry. The vehicle entrance/exit is narrow and two-way, and one large motorhome entering and one exiting at the same time would be interesting to see. Booked with 4 days of 'upgraded' WiFi, advertised as an option ($5/day) prominently on the website, the office walls, the office counter and the front page of the paperwork they gave me. When I inquired about the password I was informed there was none..."it is all open" Um, what? All WiFi is free and it is all the new high speed steaming WiFi? Yep, she says! Well, needless to say the 'all open high speed WiFi for streaming multiple devices' was horrible and most times not available at all. I had booked site 35, which is a 'deluxe' 50 amp pull through. The office indicated I should back in. I explained this was a pull through site. She agreed but her notes said that it should be backed into. I decided to drive our car to the site before attempting stupidity in a 36 foot long motorhome. What I was met with was a horribly trashed site, mostly dirt/weeds and stickers, narrow & not level. If I 'pulled through' I would need to negotiate a very steep embankment and make a tight turn onto a 4x4 trail with low branches. But if I had backed in, the utilities would be on the wrong side. There were three (yes 3) very trashed picnic tables blocking the site and NO fire pit as 'deluxe' sites here are supposed to. Utilities located too far forward. Only a handful of sites worth as much $25 a night, much less the $72 they are asking (or $77 if you book online...$5 online booking fee, ya know). Pool, game room and water pad closed earlier than posted every day. I never saw the store open once. Dumpster was overflowing for days. Trash all over the playground and water pad areas. Dogs running freely throughout. No power in restrooms. Very nice area, but don't ruin your vacation by staying at this place. - Mike-M

Under new management the park is pretty much the same except for more cabins and wifi is now excellent. The park is still best used during the week for it gets crowded on weekends. - Bill Barnes

Stopped over for a few days visiting friends in the area. Very quiet, wide spacious sites with some shade. We stayed after Labor Day mid week, but can see where this could be a busy, family friendly park. All-in-all very satisfied. - Travlnpj

We have been to this park several times. This park is now owned by Sun Resorts and the daily rate seems to be skyrocketing! Extra charge for guests, their car, etc. cabins available as well. - OBZRV2

We were there for a week of baseball games which was right next to rv park. There is grass and shade trees. Very large sites. Water sewer and electric 30 and 50 amp. There are restrooms with showers. Clean. For us it was perfect. We have stayed here before for baseball games. There are no other amenities. The fair grounds are next to campgrounds also. - Littlegrami

The men's bathroom was not clean except for the one day the caretaker cleaned it. It really needed daily cleaning. Park was OK. We were there for little league tournament. The park was right next to the ball fields, so worked for us. Roads were very dusty. There was hardly anyone there. There are some full time live-ins. The sites if full would be close but hardly anyone stays there. I would stay again for a short period. - Littlegrami

$22 Senior rate can't be beat. ($25 regular) Grass sites that needed several boards to level but hookups were easy and I even found some shade. Famous Frog Jumping fairground, lots of Winery's and a quaint old town but the road - Hwy 49 - is not so 'friendly', be Careful. Easy access to Murphy, CA for a day of wine tasting. WiFi is a charge of $10 day but restrooms are fine and has shower. I get several antenna tv stations and phone service is good. Stayed 2 days and found this park very adequate on my way to Yosemite. - SailorGolf

Agree with others, nice park, the guide to the site needed as the layout of the park can be difficult to understand at first. Chose a back in site because they are about $8 - 10/night cheaper and we would be unhooking anyway. Site 52 is very large and at the edge of the park, however, it had been raining (and a little snow) so it was a very wet site but we stayed because we enjoyed hearing the frogs at night. Both back ins and pull thru sites have large and small sizes to accommodate all rigs. Recommend only for self sufficient units as only restrooms are near office and the cabins. Previous review must have arrived from the south on Hwy 49 - not recommended but Hwy 12/49 from north or Hwy 49/4 is also very doable with our 35' Class A motor home. - BandD

In the scenic Gold Country foothills in Central CA. Narrow, very steep winding roads getting up to Angels Camp. Grades in the 8%+ range. RV park is nice enough. Pretty scenery with lots of trees turning colors in the fall. Roads are paved in the older section, and sites are pretty tight with sharp corners and tree issues. Obviously designed for much smaller RV's. Site surfaces are gravel and dirt with a fire ring and picnic table. Trees block satellite reception and no cable available. Pool is seasonal. Wifi is available, but limited and slow/non-existent if the park is busy with weekenders. Staff seem attendant and roam around on their golf carts keeping park tidy. Very expensive considering limited amenities. Looks like they are building a new section which currently isn't paved, but the sites look much larger and easier to navigate. - Todd Hancock

We stayed at the end of September in the Iron Horse campground. Most of the sites (75%) were empty save for a few boaters. The sites are mostly level and very deep (50-60 feet) and there are several pull-through sites. The camp host is very friendly and even offered free firewood. Weather was perfect (low 80s), little or no wind, and no bugs. A few sites have great views of New Melones Lake. Little or no shade anywhere, but not a problem this time of year. - M_i_k_e_y

This is a beautiful and peaceful campground right on the lake. We dry camped here. It is nice if you're self contained. The bathrooms were not available and they had port-a-potties by the restrooms. The water is great for swimming, fishing and boating, although they did have a problem with leaches when we were there, so just something to be aware of. The rangers and camp host are really nice and helpful. Lots of wildlife and beautiful area in California with a convenient store/ gas station at main road and grocery store in Angels Camp couple miles down the road with Redbox rentals and other goodies. - Runluv

Camped in 35' motorhome in site #55. Pros - - Super quiet - can only hear the osprey, turkeys and other wildlife - Our space was level and spacious - space between sites is more than generous - Amazing views of the lake and forested areas. - Camp Host is super helpful - he and his wife work hard to keep the sites clean and all new campers greeted and settled. - Very reasonable cost - Lots of wildlife - from the nearby osprey nest to turkeys, deer and lots of other birds. - Very convenient to Emmett's Pass and Columbia Historic State Park. Cons - - No hookups though water faucets are all over. We don't care as we are self-contained but some may want electric and/or water. - Gina A

This is a very pretty landscaped park. The sites are very level and easy to park in. The lodge is very friendly and the bar overlooks the golf course next door. The lodge has a nice laundry facility. Their is also a wonderful information bulletin board with key information for the area. The camp hosts were friendly and very helpful. - parkit

Back in gravel sites with large grass area behind, picnic tables at sites. Great location for wineries and shopping. Lodge is a few steps away from rv, lodge members are extremely friendly. Thanks to the camp host for all your great tips for site seeing in Lodi and Woodbridge. - waymar

RV sites on edge of lodge parking lot. 8 are suitable for pull in parking so you face an area of grass and trees. The rest of the spots are back in suitable for shorter rigs (less than 30' only) Standard Lodge amenities available, bar, etc. Town is nearby including the very first A&W restaurant. A pleasant stay for us. - Bucky Beaver

I had heard bad things about this campground because of noisy crowds and crowded conditions during the summer, however, the $15 senior rate, even for non-residents, and the fact it had full hookups for that rate caused me to give it a try for one night on my way to Yosemite. For positives, the sites were adequately spread out, and I was able to find an open site for satellite TV. Verizon signal was excellent for both voice and data. Sites and roads were paved and the place was only about 10% occupied on a weeknight. I was told that even weekends in fall and winter are not crowded because there is no swimming or water contact activities allowed on the lake during fall, winter, or spring. I came in without a reservation and basically had my pick of sites. For negatives, the power went out in the middle of the night, but it was a campground-wide event, not just my site. By the time I left at 9:00 am, the power company was already digging up and repairing the break. The biggest negative is that this place needs some grounds maintenance. There is nothing but dirt between sites--any grass or ground cover having been worn away by heavy usage. Leaves need to be raked, and trash raked and picked up. There were a lot of small things like bottle caps, smashed cans, and bits of paper and other things hiding underneath the leaves that blew around. You could tell the place had had a rough summer. However, I will still probably come back here occasionally when I am looking for a quiet place to rest for a few days. - judy_online

This is the first time we stayed at Woodward since the "upgrades" to the RV sites. We camped on T-Island which is right on the lake. We have been camping here for 10+ years and this is the first time on the island as it didn't have full hookups before. Nice shady spots. We only camp during weekdays because of the chaos on the weekends.
Did not appreciate paying the service $8 for the privilige of making a reservation and did not appreciate the 4pm check in the hot part of the day. - JOE & DEE DEE

RV here during the summer. We like to row. This year the reservoir is so low it's like the irrigation districts are draining it. This leaves the "beaches" slimmy and algae ridden :(. Nice park otherwise. - kdanzi
