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. We camped at River Bend Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

The staff were friendly, the park has recycling. Other than that I did not like this RV park. Our site was 25 feet away from the dump site. The smell was so strong my husband and I could not sit outside most nights. The park itself was extremely overcrowded. There were two couples in tents next to us at the back end of the dump site. When we woke up the next morning there was a third tent practically under our back window. I was very thankful our neighbors were considerate. A few of the rules were no loud music or screaming at anytime and quiet time is at 10 pm. These rules were never enforced. The RV park is situated below a very busy road and traffic noise was a problem at night. There seem to be quite a number of permanent residents whose old and unkempt trailers have collected a lot of junk. We camped at River Bend Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is on the Russian River. The park is split into long term and short term. The better views seem to be at the long term sites, though we could look down from our site R-10 and see the river. Our Verizon air card worked pretty well here. There is some cable TV service (about 20 stations) and our AT&T phones were better down the road a few miles. This is right in the middle of wine country, with many wineries to choose from if desired. There are picnic tables and fire rings at sites. There are trees, somewhat level gravel sites with some grass in between. There is playground equipment for children and a tall statue of Paul Bunyan. The Safeway store is about 4 miles west with decent selections. It is a nice park, just seems overpriced. The $43 dollars plus tax ended up being closer to $47 a night and that was with Good Sam discount! The countryside is beautiful and it is a bit cooler since it is 11 miles west of Hwy 101 and about 20 miles from the coast. We camped at River Bend Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Calling this RV park as a "resort" is truly the ultimate exaggeration. It is one of the worst maintained and run down places that we have every stayed in. The overnight spots appeared to be in better condition but for a monthly stay you are put in amongst derelict RVs and old trailers. There seemed like lots of dogs on chains that barked and we remember a big rotweiller that lounged at our smaller dog as we went by. Management's reaction to our concern about the fact that the dog may get loose, was to tell us not to walk down that street anymore. The monthly sites are so narrow that there is no place to park a vehicle and you can practically touch the slide out of the RV next door. The Wi-Fi was hit or miss even though we were assured that it was strong. This park is very expensive for what you get. We would never stay there again. We camped at River Bend Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here for 2 months while I was working in the area. The advertised 'recently built' sites had the sewers leak raw sewage into the tent camping sites when they were full. This is also where the children's playground is. The only 50 amp sites are the recently built sites and those sites do not have cable TV. They have exactly 3 pull through sites. The other sites are NOT big rig friendly. There is no river beach access, you must cross the river using a rope across the river to get to a beach. There are some scruffy looking permanent residents of questionable charactor and 'business' dealings. One weekend a fulltime resident threatened a camper with a knife. Not exactly what I would term as 'family friendly'. The drains in the bathrooms had the covers missing, which could be a potential injury. Unfortuanately, there are not a lot of RV parks to choose from in this area. We camped at River Bend Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
