Originally we planned to stay in Fresno, due to the nearby attractions, but could not find positive RV park reviews. Almost by accident we ran across very positive reviews for The Lakes, 30 miles away. We were not disappointed. After 5 years of RVing we can say this is one of the nicest, most reasonably priced parks we have stayed at. Sites are spacious, with hedges separating them, Utilities are fantastic, though like most parks, the wifi is iffy, as was our Verizon Data signal though voice and text were fine. It is not far from CA99, on a country road, and no road noise at all. Shopping is within walking or very short drive. Did I mention the free golf at the fantastic course adjacent? We were there for a week and could have golfed every day, but only got in twice due to a busy schedule. You can walk to the clubhouse, pick up a cart and drive it to your RV to load up. Restrooms/showers were immaculate. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Motorhome.

Nice park with golfing available and in the new area of the city. It is a gated entrance and paved with concrete sites. Most all the sites are back-in and tight because of trees on the site for motorhomes. I could not open my awning because of the tree in the way. The landscaping is very nice but grass is dying because of lack of enforcement of parking on grass. Wi-Fi - good signal; T-Mobile - 2 of 4 bars; Electric - no issues; Water - no issues; Sewer - no issues; Satellite - no issues, dog area - fenced, grass. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Motorhome.

We used this in between Yosemite and Sequoia national parks. It is a drive to either park, but it beat moving our rig closer to either. The park is nice with concrete pads surrounded by grass. There were lots of snails after the rain, and some ants near the lake. Spots are very generous in space allowed. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This is by far our favorite stopover point when doing the snowbird thing from the Pacific NW to Phoenix and back. It's always neat and clean, the front office staff is helpful and friendly, plus the green grass, neatly trimmed shrubs (between sites), the concrete pads and the paved interior roads add a touch of class. The back-in sites along Robertson Rd may be the nosiest sites in the park, but overall it's pretty quiet. Oh, and they offer either two rounds of golf free or a AAA or Good Sam discount. So whether or not you're a golfer, you receive a discount perk. There are some tiny quibbles that keep it from being a 10, but nowhere near enough to keep us from enjoying each stay. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We have stayed at The Lakes a few times and the service is always courteous. The sites are nicely arranged and always clean. Each site is separated by landscaping and it has always been well maintained. You have a choice when paying to take a reduced rate for GS or AAA etc. or a round of golf for 2 each day you stay at Peasant Run Course next door. Either way a stay at this park is great value. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Smaller, but very clean RV park. Two rounds of golf come with the site, if you are a golfer. FHUs with good power and water pressure. Not much in Chowchilla, but there is a decent grocery store nearby. There is a pool and a hot tub, but we didn't use it as it is still too cold out. Quiet, and well maintained park. Great overnight stopping spot if you are traveling north or south on Highway 99. We would stay here again. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This park was just a one night stop over for us, we didn't even unhook our tow car. However, we want to share our experience! From the beginning, when I made the reservation, the customer service was excellent. Then, on the day of our arrival, we were running late; we got a call from their office asking when we would arrive. They wanted to make sure that we knew where our info would be to find out site, and that we were able to get in the locked gate. Overall the park was very nice; well landscaped, very clean; nice level concrete pad with patio. We were traveling to a dog show, so to have a nice, grassy fenced dog run near our site was a real bonus! Our dogs loved it. Too bad we weren't staying longer, the pool and spa area was very inviting but we had no time to take advantage of it. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Motorhome.

We have stayed in this campground a number of times because it's close to our kids. It is clean and well-run. We used to get a bigger discount through RPI but were always stuck in the back row. This time we got a lakeside back-in site. The sites are long and wide, and level. We don't golf, and for the area the price seems a bit high. We continue to stay here because it is secure and we always have a good experience. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Motorhome.

This place is a find. We stayed here with friends just for one night. Could have stayed here for a while. This place is kept in tip top shape and truly a resort. Folks at the front desk were very friendly and seemed genuinely pleased that we chose this place. Paved roads that were easy to maneuver, concrete pads that were level. no picnic tables but that wasn't an issue. Worth every penny. We will stay here again.

This was my second stay. A very good stopover on the way through the valley, which was my case, or the national parks are nearby and this would be a great base location. If you are going to stay overnight and move on, get a pull through site because the back-ins are short and would require unhooking your tow vehicle. Office staff was friendly and helpful. My site didn't have a table, while several others around my location did. The park has sites for sale and I figured out that those with tables are ones in private ownership. So if you show up and private sites are in the rental pool when you arrive, you'll probably get a table. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Golf is "kinda" included in your rental fee. The fee is waived, but you have to pay for the cart. The course at the RV Park is championship length and was in OK shape. You can also play Madera Golf Course for free. It was in better shape and only a few miles away. We played every day so this is a great deal for us.

This resort actually lives up to what a resort should be. The site is a combination of 3 types of sites. Back-in on the perimeter, pull thoughs on the interior and back-ins on the lake. The sites each have a concrete pad for your RV with full hook ups. They even have garbage pick-up daily @ your site. If that sounds to good to be true you even get 2 free rounds of golf @ the adjacent golf course for each day you stay. Some days have restrictions. We found this resort clean, well managed and for sure we'll be back when in the area. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Truck Camper.

An absolute beautiful green oasis in an otherwise brown, dusty Central California (at least brown and dusty this year), just off Highway 99. Impeccably neat, clean and well organized, this is truly a resort. There are 87 campsites with variety of back-ins, pull throughs and 19 head-in sites that surround a small man-made lake. Nightly rates vary depending on the type of site you choose. Campsites are long, level concrete pads that are wide enough for strips of grass and hedges on either side to shield you from your neighbors. Wide interior roads are paved and have gentle curves that make navigation easy, even for big rigs. The park is part of an overall gated golf resort and the nightly fee includes two free rounds of golf. Non-golfers can opt for a discounted park rate.Amenities include daily garbage pick-up and something we've not seen before--fire extinguishers mounted outside at several points throughout the park. Although there's little to see and do right in Chowchilla, this park is a great place for snowbirds to overnight or rest up for a couple of days or so as they travel from north to the sunny south and back. It'll definitely be on our list of places to stay again. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

The Final Round Grill overlooks the golf course (just across the parking lot from the park) and has 'pub grub plus' food. And there are a couple more restaurants a short drive up the road. There's also a grocery store nearby. For those staying longer than overnight, Yosemite and Sequoia National Parks are an hour and a half to the east.

What a wonderful RV park campground! Beautiful landscape, very clean with well kept grounds and big rig friendly. Long pull-through for our 43 ft MH with tow and didn't need to disconnect. Grass on each side of parking pad. The park is part of a golf resort and is gated. There's a wonderful bar and grill (The Final Round) at the Country Club overlooking the golf course that is easily accessed from the back right gate. They give you a key card to get in and out of the park when you check in. Would highly recommend staying here. Friendly and helpful staff. We camped at The Lakes RV & Golf Resort in a Motorhome.
