Very helpful staff. Friendly campers and well located for the Columbia State Historic Park. Close to Sonora and Jamestown. - Rocky 2
May 2018 - $40.00
We had a back in level spot. The staff helps you back in, so setting up on the narrow circle is not difficult. WI-FI worked well. AT&T works in park. The park provided hot dogs & chili on Friday night. Rigs are close together, all utilities work and the staff is very helpful. Location can't be beat. Use the directions on the website to get to the park. - travelcouple

Our two sites were elevated and separated from other campers, so we had an excellent view (spotted several deer) with some privacy. Loved the free hot dogs on Friday night! The bathrooms were old but adequate. The fenced dog run is convenient and well-maintained. The park is clean and quiet with a friendly staff. Don't trust your GPS for directions. - Rusty_C

We had a good time because of the folks we were with. And it was close to Columbia--a very cool place to visit. Also, if you are in the area, make sure you visit Sonora. However, I cannot recommend the park for the following reasons: 1. Very, very, VERY run down. Nothing seemed in good repair. 2. Cable was "out" and there were no plans to repair it since it was too expensive. 3. The owner gave our phone number to another camper because the other camper thought one of our friends broke his tail light when leaving. This was a non kosher move. I had to leave our phone number as part of the check-in process. He had no business giving it out to another--for any reason. 4. Nothing but some folding chairs and an old pool table in the "clubhouse." 5. The only TV that was available was in the laundry room. 6. No fire pits, though that's OK since Calif is full of "no burn" days. 7. Wi Fi was non existent. Had to use my phone's hot spot for internet access. 8. The campground has trees in the middle of the road. They are pretty, but pose obstacles that make it a challenge to navigate around as we attempt to back in. - GilesScott

.Maintenance is lacking in the park. This literally is in a quarry. All dirt sites. Lots of shade trees in bottom section, but few where we stayed. Nice desk folks. Would not stay here again . - Joyce Denke

This park was average. Very quiet and peaceful, friendly staff. There was lots to see and do in the area. 30 amp was not adequate for required service. No maintenance was done during our entire stay, trash was overflowing, sites were not clean. With a little maintenance this could be a great park. - wolfman76

The difference between a privately run campground and a city/county park is obvious when entering the fairground CG. The park is self check-in with no assistance or help. The CG is confusing in its lay out and probably makes sense but not to us. Asphalt roads with all grass sites, the hook-ups are confusing. The grass had not been cut in weeks and lots of deferred maintenance. The location is quiet at night with good access to the city. Because of its location and lack of options in the area we would return. - sjones

This place offers many different types of sites and utility options. We stayed in the area behind the grandstands had 50 amp with water and sewer. The site was fairly level with the open field in front that was rather bumpy to drive through. There are no views of anything, however lots of area to walk a dog. - illini777

Stayed in advance of the Strawberry Music Festival near Tuolumne, arriving on A Wednesday afternoon. First come-first served, envelope system for payment. Full hookups and wonderful water.
The upper RV sites are in shade and pretty level in an open, park-like setting. There were a few other campers nearby, all music festival attendees.
Fine place to camp: easily accessible off the highway and close to town for all our shopping needs in advance of a 4-day music event. - ReggieK

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

Very nice RV Park. Close to Ironstone Vineyard/Amphitheatre. Shuttle is available to concerts at Ironstone. Will definitely return. - LFT

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

Absolutely EXCELLENT in every way EXCEPT NO HEAT IN THE BATHROOMS Beautiful park, very well laid out. Very friendly staff. I had to mention the heat in the bathroom because it SNOWED while we were there. Asphalt roads froze. Heated pool was great. Club house was over the top. We already have reservations for next year. - SSM 46

Very nice resort. No trouble getting my 43' fifth wheel in and around park. Stayed there for a Grand Design rally. Normal price is $65.00, prices going up after Jan. 1, 2019. Cable and wifi good. Had a package delivered while there, staff very helpful and accommodating. They pool and hot tub are very nice and clean. They have horseshoes and Bocci courts. Away from casino (have a shuttle) an easy walk and very quite. The park is very clean, after rally observed workers wiping down tables and pedistools. - MountainFolk

Fairly new park that is very clean. Landscaping is young so not much shade. Plenty of room for large rigs and good roads. - JZBack
Jul 2010 - $37.00
This is the only RV Park in Twain Harte. Dirt/gravel sites that need some leveling. All back-in with full hook ups. Older park with lots of trees. Only 15 sites in the front, all the rest are permanent trailers and motorhomes. Very nice swimming pool and a small playground for kids. Cable TV at each site, and Wi-Fi only at the Office. Quiet at night. Rate shown is with Good Sam, they charge you the full amount up front, and we would recommend reservations since they only have a few sites available. Staff was very polite and helpful. - zigzag

We only gave this campground a 4 because it was in the mountains and had a nice playground. Otherwise it would probably get a 1. The bathrooms were absolutely filthy. There was 1 shower stall and 1 toilet to share co-ed. That's gross. Mold and dirt/grime was all over the shower. You can tell nobody ever cleans it. The bathroom was out of toilet paper and was dirty and we were the only ones staying in the campground. The other side of the park is for permanent trailer home residents which feels strange. The sign advertises clean bathrooms yet I would definitely ask to see them before you check in if you plan to use them, because this place is nasty. Also it says Wi-fi, but that is only right by the office. If you do stay here, there is a pastry shop about a mile up the road that sells some incredible breakfast pastries: the best I've ever had in my life! Made me glad we came up this way. It's about 80 miles from Yosemite. - adventure

Small park in the tall trees. Sites are close together so they give you two, one for your tow vehicle. Restroom was very clean. Pool was sparkling although it was too cold to swim when we were there. Nice nature trail. There is also a nice playground structure. Park caters mostly to permanents but they are on the other side and up a hill, away from the campground. Tent area is shady and nice. This park is close to Twain Harte, Sonora, and the historic town of Columbia. Black Oak Casino is about 12 miles away. The owner is very friendly and is doing a great job of upgrading the park. We enjoyed our stay and will return. - rosewood38

This campsite is on Don Pedro Lake and is good for use if you want to utilize the lake. The campsite itself has a woodsy setting. Each site has a fire pit and bench. The site we had (A8) was relatively private and had lots of shade and protection from the wind. The website is very good and provides pictures and a rating for each site indicating whether there is shade, whether the sites are level, etc. Downside to the campsite are as follows: Marina/general store is about 1.5 miles from the boat launch, 1.25 miles from the campsite which is inconvenient especially if you are towing a boat; hilly and steep in areas -not toddler/kid friendly; no pets and no view of the lake from the campsite. Campsite itself was pretty nice, but the inconvenience of having the boat launch so far from the marina/store and campsite was problematic and inconvenient. We will probably not return for that reason. - tagalongwife
