The 30 amp outlet wouldn't power my AC which was the main reason I chose a full hook up park. Beautiful park but unfortunately the site to the north of me had a dog that barked nonstop and no one seemed to do anything about it. To the west of me across the pond was loud mariachi music which competed with the blaring Bollywood music on the backside of my site. The pads are nice and so is the park. Unfortunately no one is around to control the riff raff. If your looking for a quiet place to camp you should look elsewhere. Looks like a great place to fish and hoot and holler to Mariachi music! - Jimmy _G

We stayed at T island It is a great location. The Memorial Day weekend gets a bit rowdy but Great Lake access. - Minnefornia

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

For Elks members only , very nice park eight pull through's possibly two more that exist but not sure, was told that if the area is full you can Boondock around the perimeter of the Elks Lodge parking as long as you're leaving early in the morning. I understand that as of January 1 2017 , rates are changing Modesto members $20 members at large $25 this is still a bargain since there is not too many options to park in or around Modesto. The access is simple off of Highway 99 very easy to get to definitely follow the instructions if heading east you will actually turn on Pentecost which dead ends into charity way which is kind of like a turnaround where the Elks Lodge is located . As far as the sites they are fairly level on a gravel dirt base which seem to drain real good they have a drywall out there for heavy winter rains but I'm thinking it could be a little dusty in the summertime not sure, winter time rain not a problem no mud exist. You are definitely in a rural area of North Modesto at this time not much out there so your experience is fairly quiet . The dump station is located as you are pulling out all on a asphalt area for a clean no mess experience, very nice, drainage and slope is excellent. The lodge is very nice updated has an excellent lounge and seems to be more in touch with the times then some of the other lodges we have visited. We will stop here again when in the area. - monaco cruiser

This campground is off the beaten path . It was almost deserted this time of year. The reservoir makes the setting quite lovely. You can sit close to the water and watch the ibis try to catch fish. The weekend brings local families and fishermen. It is quite dusty but if you want a break from the crowds this is it. - Lee and Paul

This is a great park for the price. We stayed here in the months of November and December. It was quiet and peaceful. It only has 30 amp service but that was sufficient during this time of year. Lots of fishing and easy access in and out of the park. - crownblackdiamond

About 150 full hook-ups. Paved interior roads. Each site has a concrete pad for parking rig and pad for picnic table. Discounts offered for senior citizens, disabled and disabled veterans, the latter no cost. There was a torrential downpour when we arrived so there was lots of standing water in puddles. Very few campers at this time of the year, perhaps, 7-8 with several appearing to be there for lodging rather than recreation. Could be improved in my mind were the concrete pad connected to the paved road with asphalt, thus eliminating some of the muddy areas. Rest rooms nothing to get excited about with stainless steel fixtures. Several separate shower areas. Web site shows all things available, including water skiing. - artiemeek

The campground, situated on the Tuolumne River, is part of the Turlock Lake SRA. At the time of our visit, we were the only motorhome in the park, aside from the campground hosts. Self-registeration was in process, though a very cordial Ranger came by later to check that everything was fine. About half the campground was closed down. We could see the river,about 100 feet away, from our space. Interior roads paved and RV spaces paved and level. Large trees throughout area. A very nice area to relax this time of the year for anyone not needing hookups. - artiemeek

Triangular grassy field with hookups along back treeline. Very old electric posts, no cable or wifi. Big sign with rules and check in procedures at park entrance. Very quiet except for the locomotive that barrels through every hour blowing his horn as if his life depended on it. It's the only RV park in town so, it's ok for one night passing thru. Would stay again if had to. Nightly rate a bit high for what you get, but again, it's this or the Walmart parking lot. - Fulsom Family

It's not a destination resort so don't expect a pool, showers and a laundry. The sites are well spaced and mostly level . The park is kind of hard to find, even though it is just outside the fairgrounds front gate. The trains go by on a regular basis during the day, but the noise seems to end about 9 pm or so, thus it never bothered us when we were sleeping. - ultrastar28

What a previous reviewer said... right alongside train tracks. At least 6 rolled by tooting their horns almost constantly in the 18 hours we'be been here so far. Great cell reception though--there's a tower right here too. Grass and dirt field, muddy when wet. Location can be tricky to find. Go by the address. Not well signed. Keep your eyes open. Better yet, camp elsewhere. Office closed and no host present when we rolled in so we just took a site which is the way it works at this first-come-first-served location. Hookups are dual serving adjacent sites. Our electrical pedestal was old and in a state of disrepair. All hookups at the back of sites so long or extended sewer hoses are needed and the drains are in the ground which may be uphill from where your hose first touches down. 30 amp and 20 amp service. No 50 amp. All sites are back-in. Cash only. Wouldn't stay here again unless desperate. - RussOnTheRoad

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 great campground at the right time of year if your rig is small. Many sites along the Stanislaus River in riparian forest. Trailer size limit is 21 ft. and motorhome limit is 24 ft. Lots of mature trees to provide shade but the area gets very hot in the summer. Pads are asphalt. - oldmac

This is my second time staying here in July 2019. The staff is incredible. When I made my reservation with Jen I also met her when I checked in. I love the showers. They are very clean. I was able to pick the same site that I had before. I look forward to seeing Julie and Caleb again this trip. I just can't say enough good things about this place. - Dennis Russell

Somewhat disappointing. The staff was friendly, but the park needs considerable work. Granted I was there after a large storm hit CA, but even given that, the park is rundown. (It is really a 3.5 star park, not 4. But given that much of the damage to the park was from a recent storm, it did not seem fair to mark them as a 3 even though that is its current condition.) It is NOT a 9.5 or even a 9 as per the Good Sam rating, in my opinion. It is more like an 8 when compared to other parks. Issues this "resort" needs to improve on. #1- They need to hire a Gardner. The grounds are in desperate need of care! ALL of the trees and bushes needed to be trimmed. BE CAREFUL where you drive with your RV or you will hit tree branches. #2- The roads and spaces are horribly damaged from rain. Yet again another park with "dirt and gravel" spaces instead of blacktop or cement. The spaces are very uneven and need fresh gravel! #3- Not BIG RIG friendly. The spaces are extremely narrow. If you have a new RV with huge slide-outs, you will not fit in most spaces. And those that you do, you will NOT be able to have a table alongside your rig. #4- Not dog friendly. No spaces for your canine friend to do his business and no pet bags, like almost every other park, to pickup his business with. #5- No enforcement of trash around full-time RV folks. They have a large number of permanent RV members. Many of those RVs have accumulated considerable "trash" around their RVs which makes the park look "getto" in places. Lastly, there are some positive factors. Friendly staff. Quiet area. They have a horseshoe pit and volleyball net. Also nice small areas for those with tents. (The tent areas seemed to be better kept then the RV spaces... or it could be those areas are just not used much, not sure). Two locations for Sewer connections to accommodate small and larger rigs. In conclusion, it is nice private park for what it is. It is better than many, but also worse then several... therefore I rate it just above average. CAUTION... NOT BIG RIG FRIENDLY. Many spaces too narrow for larger newer RVs. Be sure to relate size of your RV width. The spaces are long enough, but far too narrow!!! - Oregon_Adventure

Convenient to the highways without the noise and easy to get in and out of. There is no longer a lake - it has dried up. The sites are large with some shade in some sites. WiFi has not come to their area, but Verizon worked fine. Nothing fancy, but we'd stay again when in the area. - Lke

We have been going to this park for many years. This year it was a disappointment. They have strict rules about not putting anything on the grass. Not sure why because the grass was full of weeds and thorns. My dogs got thorns on their paws every time I took them for a walk. It was very bad. They say they have WiFi but no one in our group of 15 rigs could get any signal. The TV over the air was OK. The restaurant across the driveway from the office is under new management. Six of us went to dinner on a Wednesday night. Only a few people in the restaurant/bar. Our service was horrible. It took forever for anyone to get their food. By the time the rest of us was done, one couple just got their meal. He sent it back at that point. I would NOT recommend going to that restaurant. - RVpartyanimal

This is the first RV park we stayed at after purchasing my travel trailer earlier in the day. This was just to be a shakedown cruise and give me a place to stay near some late night work I was going to be doing. Despite the heavy rains we found the park to be quite nice. We were given pull thru space 120 and it was very spacious. The pedestal was easy to get to with multiple power options and two water faucets. Trash is picked up daily. Just leave it curbside. All the neighbors and long term residents were very friendly. The staff was very helpful as well. Pay the $10 deposit to get a gate key. Makes it really convenient to come and go. We will definitely be back! - Scott and Cristy
