This place is not for large rigs. With a 41' fifth wheel it was tight to maneuver and they only have a few sites that accommodate. I guess the tone was set when we arrived and five minutes into setting up the neighbor says, "we will be using our table tonight." This table was at our hookup and no more than 12" from our door. That's fine! I asked the park ranger to verify that it wasn't our table and she never came by. I don't want drama, keep the table.... The worst part of the place is that you are maybe six feet away from your neighbor. They are packed in like sardines! We were supposed to stay 3 nights and we left after the first night. I'd never stay here again. - Mary DeSpain

We stayed here one night on our way northward. None of the sites at this campground have sewer or cable/WiFi! Yet, they charge a hefty price. We would only stay here again if there was no other campground availability. - ScrapMetal

We stayed here at the Thousand Trails Russian River RV park north of Cloverdale California in June of 2019 while the husband was attending a Drone Conference for Public Safety agencies. The reason this park was selected was because we were looking for a cost effective location which would allow him to attend the conference put on by Enterprise UAS and would allow Pit bull type breeds of dogs. Though these two important criteria were met, we neglected to determine if the location had 50 amp service for the RVs. Additionally, this RV park does not have sewer hookups at the RV locations either. The roads in the park are fairly well navigable for 40 foot RVs and the sites are also fairly well maintained. The bathroom, shower and laundry facilities are fairly well maintained as well. The water in the showers is hot, though the pressure can fluctuate at times. The camp store has some of the simple amenities that one might need such as soda and marshmallows. You will find however that the city of Cloverdale which is about 10 minutes south of the RV park has all of retail supplies you would probably need. There are a lot of activities for the kids here at this park to enjoy. There is water rafting, a kids play area with an up to date slide and climbing wall. There is also a tether ball for those who are so inclined. The power and water at the sites is generally stable, though the local utility company that covers most of the San Francisco region (PG&E) had an equipment failure in the area one day that we were here which caused us to be without power for about 6 hours. All in all, this is a fairly comfortable place to stay. Due to the lack of 50 amps and no sewer hookups, we would not consider this a 'Resort', but for those that are looking for a camp ground a little on the rustic side, this location will definitely work. We took the trek out to the Cloverdale KOA and getting to that location is much more of a challenge for large 40 foot motorhomes such as ours. - luvdoggiez

This park is also known as River Bend. One is for tents and another is for RV's according to the owner. Water in the showers was warm and owner said she would tell her husband about it. FYI, no ATT service in the RV area. If you're Xfinity customer there was great free wifi available. Sites abut the highway so some road noise. In short nice park, but expected more for the price point charged. - hmthomas1

River access was nice, but WAY too much money for what you get! Also seemed to be more of a "full time" campground than a vacation spot. Has a lot of folks living here and it was very noisy. It's right on a busy road, so lots of traffic noise too. Also very crowded. - frenchman

Crowded, noisy. Way over priced for what you get. Friendly hosts, but the crowd seemed like a bunch of squatters looking for a free meal. Did like the river being close, but had a hard time enjoying it. - mountainsurfer

Old, run down park. Unfriendly and near nasty management. Old, dirt filled site, not level, small. Just electric and water, no sewer. Most folks stay here are the permanent type with old, run down rigs. Stayed here one night. We will avoid this one in future. - hotpepper

Un-kept camp sites, in between river and hwy 116. Loud noise from hwy all night. Bath room and showers needed some TLC. - Mtn girl

Older, nice RV park. Has lots of trees, a very nice staff and is located close to wine country. Would stay here again. - rval

The park is fairly clean, though the full-time camper section is a bit run-down looking. The manager was very nice and friendly, but the rest of the staff didn't go out of their way to assist. Our spot was under some nice trees that provided shade on hot days, but it was also immediately next to a busy road (River Road). The traffic was fairly loud throughout the day and quieted at night. Many of the RV spots were in a large parking lot with no trees, and very close together. The tent camping spots were all in dirt and didn't look appealing at all. There is access to the river, though it was down some steep dirt paths. This could be a lovely property, but needs some attention. Try to get an "R" site - these back to the river. - sail2blue

This is the only Good Sam park in the Russian River Valley and they offer Good Sam Discounts (10% off!) The restrooms were clean and there is access to a fantastic private beach. River Bend recently bought Hilton Family Campground, so the resort is better than ever. With an old fashioned arcade, General Store, cabins, horseshoe pits, basketball court, and an outdoor theater that plays kids movies at night. Also, on Saturdays in the summer there is free face painting and karaoke! The staff was very friendly and helpful. - User737

I would have rated this park a little lower If not for having one of the nicest sites, R15 backing up to the river.
There are mostly long term campers there while I was there May 24th.
They were not that busy but told me all the had for my 35ft MH was full service even though I said a 30 amp without sewer would work ( to keep cost down ? )
I thought the grout in the tile stalls were green, but at a closer look I noticed it was mold.
I would not stay here again. - twowoofs

We got here following a long rainy period. They only have 1 or 2 sites that would support the coach and not sink into the lawn. The roads are gravel as was the site we had we had, we had to add 3" of lift to get level in addition to the on board system. It has some low hanging wires so we had to pull in facing forward and stop short of the wires. This put the 30 amp plug at the front of the coach and our cord was too short. The park had a 3o amp extension cord and we made the hook up fine. They have no sewer or dump station. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We were the only ones there. The bathroom and showers were clean and the showers had great hot water and pressure. They have wifi that was pretty fast, I'm not sure how fast it would be when the place is full during the summer. Verizon phone and Mifi worked fine too. The site we had was mostly shaded by some Redwood trees. It's less than a mile (maybe .5 mi) into town and all the usual services. There's a brew pub down the street that has pretty good beer and ok food. This is a great place to base out of to explore the Redwood preserves in the area and access to the coast and Bodega Bay. Notes: The $49 was a winter rate and did not include the 12% tax. If you come in from the East be sure and take "River Road" from 101. It's a straight shot and easy drive. Your GPS will probably try and route you on 116. I would strongly suggest that you avoid this route. When pulling out of the park use caution, the traffic from the right is coming downhill at a good clip and you can't see up the road very far. If we're in the area we will probably stay here again. My research showed it to be the least expensive place in the area and easiest to get to. - pumper9x9

We stayed here midweek and we had the park basically to ourselves, minus the three apparent full timers. For $43 I would expect there to be a dump on site. Be aware...there is NO sewage dump station. Very clean, used showers because there is no dump and those were clean with hot water. It is within walking distance from the town. Very quiet at night despite the proximity to Neely Rd. Was here three days before we saw the park managers, good thing we didn't need anything. - pamandtina

This park is in a beautiful natural setting along the Russian River. It allows tents, and so was a good fit for us, traveling in a teardrop. However the small staff is just overwhelmed. Bathrooms are similar to what you would find in a campground, not RV park, w/cement floors and basic facilities. Bring your own toilet paper. The RV sites have 30 amp plus water, no sewer that I saw. They are arranged around two circular glades surrounded by trees, many of them lovely redwoods. Sites 1 thru 5 look really nice and are shady. All except 1a are back-in. The first night we stayed happened to be the beginning of BeerFest weekend, and every campsite was thronged with crowds of joyfully inebriated young men, who celebrated 'til the wee hours. However, people were courteous enough. After the weekend, the park emptied out, and during most of the week we were nearly alone in the spectacular setting. Campers returned the following weekend but it was much quieter. We were told that the park may be changing hands. We will be returning as it is a perfect fit for us with a daughter living within walking distance. It would be great if someone could take this diamond in the rough and shine it up! Note: although the park borders the Russian River, those areas appear to be tent campsites, and actual access to the riverbank is a little tricky. Much easier and probably safer to walk across the pedestrian bridge and go to Johnson Beach on the other side of the river, where there is a lovely and child friendly area for swimming or kayaking. - Grants Girl

This park is filled with perm residents. Only have a couple of daily spots. Felt like a poor man's monthly stay. Lots of talking and visiting by the locals. Finally cut off about 11 PM. Felt safe and people were friendly. Site was level. Streets were asphalt but not maintained last 20 years. Do not know if you can do better locally or not. We were overnight only. - Sir_Charles395

The staff was excellent! The park seemed brand new and was very well maintained. Sites were quite varied, I suspect many sites/sections are being upgraded as there were a mixture of gravel and concrete sites. Be careful of the site you get, one section with new concrete pads was far from level and we were forced to move. We ended up in a pull through site where rigs were door facing door, without much space between. Look before you park, but stay away from the fence (highway noise) at the far end, up the hill. Despite these issues, we were surprised by the fact that there were many empty sites in prime snowbird season. It is really a great location. - BMonk

We had planned to stay here for 2 weeks but ended up asking for our money back. We did stay 3 nights. This park has mostly long term tenants in the back half (and may be great for them), but for the average RV customer it does not feel right. As a result there was constant traffic in and out of the park, no speed control. We asked "Do you have full hookups" before we booked and they had NO TV at all! They said they had Wi-Fi but most of the time we were there the Wi-Fi was a 1 Mbps and could barely do email; sometimes we could not connect at all. The park is basically a gravel lot with connection posts and they pack you in next to each other. This is not a vacation spot.
I will say this, I gave them a 3 and not a 1 because the people in the office were always nice when we went in to complain. The sign says they have a water slide but the water slide has not been there in some time. - Nicole Cook

"Run, don't walk" away from this park! First, they only had 50 amp plug sites available so had to buy an 50/30 amp adapter to get power...They have no cable TV hook ups either and when I went to the office to ask about it I was told quite rudely by the Manager, "We have wifi, no cable". (the wifi was s-l-o-w) I complained that along with the adapter, the pet fee and lack of cable that I would rather have stayed somewhere else the manager said she thought that would be a good idea! If "older style" means toilets that come with instructions to get them to flush without clogging and showers that are missing lots of tile and have water saver heads with very little pressure (that the toilets more than compensate for in multiple flushes) then yes -it is older style. What little asphalt is left on the roads has more potholes than smooth spots and the full time residents do little to make the park appealing. Overall, the worst park we've ever stayed in. - rocket11

Stay away from this one. Staying here was a Big mistake! My son, daughter-in-law, and spouse said it would make a good horror movie. The bathroom was covered in black widows and spider webs. There was no hot water available if you dared take a shower. Water was rusty and smelled something fierce. The manager was laying in the front seat of his maybe 1975 Class C with cardboard covering broken windows. The fence surrounding the park was a falling down paint bare picket like you might find in an old cemetery in a horror movie. If we had not paid in advance and arrived at 10:00 pm we would never had stayed. Traffic noise was bad too!!! Stay anywhere but Windsorland RV !!!! - DigMyPast

All in all a nice stay. Very reasonable price. They WON'T be closing for at least another year or two. Clean park: has been spruced up from 2 years ago. Town of Windsor square is across the street (easy walk) and has restaurants, shops, concerts and movies in the square on Tuesday and Thursday nights. Also has a farmers market on Thursdays. Drawbacks are: no hot water in restrooms (we used our own), no cable TV, (but DOES have WiFi), and located next to Hwy 101. Nice people and quiet at night. Would definitely stay here again. - frenchman

We stayed at Casini Ranch during a pretty good rain and wind storm. We decided to book a full hookup site since the weather was going to be bad. The full hookup site comes with a small pad of concrete with a picnic table. The concrete pad worked out so we could exit the Motorhome onto the concrete and not get so muddy. The hook ups without the sewer connections are in a little more private area but they are all in mud with maybe some grassy area if you are lucky. Probably great for summer time but not when it is raining. There were only about a dozen campers in the full hook up sites so noise & kids were not an issue. I can see how thing place would get booked up in summer, it seems like a perfect place for families with younger kids. So many things to do and it is right on the river. the general store was well stocked with food, RV supplies, fishing and camping stuff. Great place for a quick winter trip. A little on the pricey side especially for winter camping when you are not able to get all the benefits the park has to offer. Would return during off season since we don't have young kids. - RVingChick

ATT cell is a no, even with booster. Verizon was good. Wifi is good, depending on occupancy. Online reservation does not allow for discounts, so call if you have a discount available. Will stay again! $20 to $40 for honey wagon if you need it. Staff was excellent. Plenty to do in the facility and nearby. - Dp26

We spent 22 days in this lovely family campground while visiting our grand kids. Spaces are wide and well arranged. So much for kids to do - our grand kids loved staying with us. Bounce pillow, playground, ice cream social, pedal carts, hay rides are all available on the weekends. The campground sits in a big bend of the Russian River, so there is considerable river frontage, mostly devoted to some amazingly private tent camping sites. Sites with sewer are in rows, a short walk from the river. All pull-thrus. Some back in sites with water/electric that are really nice and private too. Laundry is nice, showers and bathrooms are well arranged, with toilet and shower in a stall and shred sink area. Recently updated. Camp store is very well stocked. Checking was fine- the staff is great. They identified a mistake on my charge and worked on it till they got it fixed. The campground is pretty full on weekends, so reservations are important, emptier during the week. Day campers are allowed to use the facilities (for a $7 fee) but even with that the campgrounds did not feel overcrowded. The entry points are closely policed, and friends visiting you for dinner will have to check in and pay an entry fee. We saw people in the entry house watching the gate until late at night. Makes you feel much easier about letting the kids ride their scooters and bikes around the park. The setting is fairly open in the center with grass between sites, but the perimeter sites are wooded and private. Much to do in the area! One tip- our GPS took us in from the east -Guerneville by having us leave the River Road (116) at Monte Rio and cross the river, then go 1.4 miles along Moscow Road, which was extremely narrow. Our trailer is small but it was still harrowing. A better option is to stay on the River Road all the way to Duncan Mills, where Moscow Road intersects the River Road to cross the river. Moscow is wider there, and the trip down it is shorter- way better! - Grants Girl

If you like camping in the dark woods, this is a good place. If you like RVing with cell service, WiFi, or TV, this is not the place. This is a private Camping Club, not a RV park. Paved and gravel interior roads, nice level gravel sites. Each site separated by tall hedges or forest. Some sites FHU, others 30 amp and water only. Most sites back into forest for camping experience. Only a few sites can get satellite signal and none can get OTA TV. There is no cell service and no WiFi available for 20 miles. Next to large river. Had problem with low voltage even when park half occupied. Small rec room and no store of pool or activities. 7 miles to Ocean. Very narrow and twisty state roads to get to area. Be careful with big rigs on county roads. Take highway 116 or River Road in from east, Avoid the Bohemian Hwy., lot of low branches. - Pepper Dan

Camped for two nights this weekend for the first time. Great camp ground, the kids loved it and the river is super close. We have been R.O.D members for 8yrs and love being able to explore new areas utilizing campgrounds that are part of our membership. We were driving from Reno and did not get out of town in time Friday to check in before their 10pm check in time. I contacted them to say we would not make it before 10pm, so instead we will drive most the way that night, pull over to sleep somewhere and be there around 9am so we could still make the best of our time there. I was told we could not checkin prior to noon as that was their checkin time. I questioned it since our reservation began the day before so what difference would it make. I was told checkout is at noon, they need to see what sites are available after people check out. I reiterated "you should already be reserving my site", I was put on hold and when she returned I was told that was just the policy and I could not check in any sooner. We left early the next morning (why drive that evening now) and because of the traffic the 5 hr drive took 10! We arrived at dinner time and were only able to spend a day and half there. Great park but the customer service sucks. The people who work there seem unusually unfriendly for working somewhere so peaceful. Beautiful area to visit however. - Anavisca

This was our third stay at this park. Very close to the ocean, nice walk down to the Russian River. 30 amp power, but sewer included. We use this as our week between stays at Thousand Trails Russian River and TT Morgan Hills and really enjoy our 'quiet' week here. Rate reflects our $0/night cost under ROD. - PugetSound

PROS: Just so you know, the selling point for this campground is its extremely close proximity to the ocean. Some sites have ocean front views that can't be beat, but these fill up within minutes of being listed on the ReserveAmerica website (and they are also $10 more than the adjacent sites that are not beach front). The sound of the waves crashing at night is amazing and there is a plethora of hiking and sightseeing opportunities both north and south of the campground. The campground itself was quite clean and pretty quiet (even on a summer weekend) and seems to be frequented by the serious camper and nature lover, not the weekend party crowd. The camp hosts were helpful and considerate. Should you have extra vehicles or your tow vehicle not fit in your site, there is overflow parking just a 1/4 mile away at the main parking area for Wright's Beach. CONS: These sites are TINY!!! We have never, and hopefully will never, try to shoehorn into a site this small again. We literally only had 6-12" to spare on all sides as we jockeyed into our site. If we had had a pull trailer vs. a fifth wheel, or anything longer than 24', it would have been impossible. Also, our fifth wheel is quite tall and the overhang from the trees scraped the top of our unit. Nothing serious, but obviously you want to avoid that if possible. It would be awesome if overhead clearance was mentioned on ReserveAmerica. These sites are also extremely close together, especially where we camped which was in a cul-de-sac of 3 sites, all with large trucks. After 1 day of squeezing our truck in and out of our site, we decided to just park it in the overflow lot. So in all, this is a perfect campground for tent campers and small RVs and trailers. Larger RVs can be accommodated in the overflow camping section adjacent to the ranger kiosk, but there is zero privacy or ambiance there. If we come back, that's probably where we'll have to stay! - MissCampsALot

This small campground is situated on a stunning beachfront spot between Bodega Bay and Jenner, just off Hwy 1. You'd never know it was there unless you read about it or happened to notice the sign (which we drove past, even though we were looking for it). I was able to reserve the last non-ADA spot a couple days ahead, but we were there in late December. I understand this campground is wildly popular and prime times sell out quickly, which is understandable to us now that we've been there.
All of the sites are great, some are just even more great. I read ahead of time that the only "good" spots are 1-10 as they are beachfront, but I now disagree and will say that 11-18 are also wonderful and just steps from the beach. 19-27 are fine, as well, but are in a lot across a small road and a bit farther from the beach. We were in 15 with our 23' class A and fit well. Longer rigs, over 30', will have a tough time here, however.
There were a fair amount of tent campers here when we were, in addition to 5th wheel trailers class B's and C's (we were the only class A, but we're a small class A), although tent campers should be aware of the fact that there are no showers at the site.
During our stay, a sign at the Camp Host's site said they were away Tuesday and Wednesday (and we left Thursday around 1pm and they still weren't there), so no firewood sales nor any service typically rendered by Camp Hosts. Not sure if this occurs every week in the low season or it was just unique to our stay. If we'd known, we would have brought firewood but we were campfire-less while we were there :(
We live in the Bay Area so we understand that the beach weather around NorCal can be finicky, most often worst in summer. Weather and numbers of visitors at the Sonoma Coast area are ideal in the winter, so we highly recommend a winter visit and your ability to get a spot in Wright's Beach is greatly increased, as well. Win-win-win. - 70s Kid

No hook ups, no trailer dump. Wonderful sites, great beach. We were treated to a perfect sunset. Loved going to sleep hearing the sound of the surf. - Trekking
