Very well maintained park in an upscale neighbor. Go east from Hwy 99. When you see Pheasant Run Gold Club entrance, get in the right hand turn lane. 100 yards later you see the yellow banner on the light pole with RV on it. Turn in there. Gated Park. Concrete pads with a hedge between sites. Pet area is at the back right corner of the park. Grass in the area was high. You go out of a gate by pet area to the golf course. Golf course is very nice. Several gated communities around the course. We were at the back left corner of the park and the Wi-Fi was very good. Sprint mobile broadband was in roaming. Satellite TV worked well. We enjoyed our stay, and will be returning on our trip back from So. Cal next year. Weekly rate was $240 + tax. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Maintenance staff was very helpful and friendly. Facilities are large and clean. It is the little things that keep this from a 10: no picnic tables, check-in staff was aloof especially as we were not interested in buying a site, etc. We'd stay again: even though we are not golfers. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a great resort conveniently located about two miles from Hwy 99. Reservations are probably well advised during the peak travel seasons as the resort appeared to fill up by late afternoon, even mid-week. The sites are large and generally well appointed with a privacy hedge separating each site. The one thing that keeps me from rating this a 10 is that the sewer hookup was located at the very rear of my site and would have required at least 25 feet of hose to reach it. Pool was rather small but the spa was great. Free golf is a nice perk and is included in the price of your stay. We will definitely stay here whenever in the area.

This RV Park (Resort) is a welcomed oasis in the middle of California’s highway 99 and offers the class A motorhome owner with quality we have come to expect from well designed parks serving our segment of the RV market. It is not an old trailer park attempting to pitch itself as a RV resort, as many along 99 between Bakersfield and Sacramento attempt to do. The only major complaint is that they desperately need signage along East Robertson Road indicating when and where to turn into the park. Those who have not stayed here before will most likely have to hit their brakes hard to make the right turn or pass the entrance and turn around somewhere down the road, both of which are unacceptable options for such and well managed, quality Park. Additionally you might not find 5001 East Robertson Road on your Garmin GPS unit so call for directions before heading out. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Motorhome.

This Resort is inside a gated community. You are given a electronic pass key to enter even when walking to the nearby golf course. The fee apparently gives one free golf, although we did not use this feature. Staff was friendly and helpful. Sites are level and wide. This is one of the nicest RV parks we have stayed at. Signs directing you the park are poor but we will make this a regular stop here on our annual trip to California. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Rate is for lowest price site less 10% Good Sam discount, which paid for the sales tax. Beautiful RV resort. Spotless restrooms and showers. Quiet. Genial hosts and employees. Nice pool and spa. Laundry is very reasonable - $1.25 to wash, $1 to dry (45 min. and clothes actually get dry). Try the Mexican fast food place just west of the campground. Gets downgraded only for back-in sites with severe slope and curb to climb over, some scaling back on upkeep (e.g., trimming shrubs and mowing), poor signage making it likely you will pass it up the first time, and occasional strong smell from nearby dairy farm. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Motorhome.

Wow - talk about security. Gated even for walking. Beautiful small park. Not well marked though and easily missed. Once here, gorgeous grounds, pool and area. Nice laundry room. Would highly recommend this park. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Motorhome.

If you want to stay in Chowchilla, play golf and enjoy a clean, pristine RV park that the lake shoots up water: this resort is for you. The park has every amenity. The main negative for us was that it was like a ghost town and quite warm. The manager even saw me setting up and helped me hook up my sewage, electric and water. Can you believe it? Move this place to a beach, and it would be filled up every day. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

An excellent park!! Very neat but very little shade. Staff was very friendly. The only ding is that the sites are quite small - just barely enough room for 34 ft 5th wheel but not enough for the truck. Luckily, they were not that busy and we were able to park in a nearby vacant site. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

The Lakes RV Resort is clean and pretty. Check in and check out were a breeze. The facility is gated and you get a remote so you can come and go easily. The staff were very friendly. I was afraid it would be quite hot but a lovely breeze kept it quite pleasant. There is plenty of grass next to each site. The dog area was clean and well maintained. Sites were big and easy to get in and out of. The pool and hot tub are small but adequate. There was a get together (a pot luck I think) in the clubhouse next to the pool. Everyone seemed friendly and polite. If there were other things to do at the clubhouse I didn’t see them. It would be nice if there were some sort of game room. All in all we had a very nice stay here on our way to our next destination. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Motorhome.

Our Good Sam's discount offset the 10% tax, so the rate quoted is the amount we paid with the discount applied. The resort promotes free golf, but utilizing the discount negated that offer. The facility is beautifully landscaped with immaculate pool, hot tub, restrooms and showers. The environment is not kid-friendly with rules such as no foreign objects in the pool area. While friendly enough, the regulars and some staff have the run of the pool area with nightly gatherings in the adjoining meeting room and their pets roaming free in the pool area. The laundry facililty is very reasonably priced and one of the cleanest we've seen. An odd request is posted to use only one machine at a time (there are three sets of washers and dryers). The angle of the pull through sites is difficult for big rigs, but manageable. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a beautiful newer park. Our rate is a weekly plus one night averaged. We stayed in a regular back-in that did not have room for our 40' and compact car, so we had to walk to parking. The site was also not real wide, although it was separated by flowering shrubs which attracted hundreds of bees. We also had some issues with low water pressure, as did other campers, in the morning and evenings. The clubhouse and pool are very nice. They offer two rounds of golf per day and the pads are concrete. There is also an off-leash area for pets. There seemed to be a lot of ridiculous rules that are "strictly enforced" but they are not, and some of the property owners seem to believe they are exempt from the rules, as I was chased by the same unleashed dog three times in two days. We would definitely stay again if in the area. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Motorhome.

A friend told me that I should stay here. I'm glad I did. A first class operation. I stayed a week on pad 81. Easy walking distance to a nice public golf course. Chowchilla does not have much going for it. There is a new Save Mart grocery store about 1 mile west. The Lakes development is suffering with the economic downturn. Lots of 'For Sale' houses on the golf course. And inside the park there are lots of pads for sale. I took one day and drove to Yosemite. About 80 miles each way. That was a treat. Especially the views from Glacier Point. I will stay here again if I travel on highway 99 headed to or from San Francisco. Recommended. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a very ritzy park! The park is gated and has nice paved roads. There is a man-made lake in the middle. There is a golf course and the high price does include free golf for two each day which is nice for golfers. We were in one of the least expensive sites. The park is well kept up, the sites are level, paved, have a patio and grass. There are shrubs between each site. The back in sites are about 45 ft, so if you have a large Fifth Wheel, both your truck and Fifth Wheel will not fit. That was the only negative thing I found. Wi-Fi is free and worked well. Very nice park. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here two nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. Park is three years old and well developed although not large. Great security, has concrete pads with grass and shrubs in between each site, very clean restroom facilities, a nice swimming pool and hot tub, a small convenience store. It is a bit pricey, as you pay between $40-$50 depending on where you stay (around the small lake is the most expensive). However, if you are a golfer it is a great deal as you get two free rounds of golf (cart is extra) for each night you stay. We will plan on returning again.
