Cal Expo is a great little RV spot if you're passing through Sacramento, visiting some family for a few days or attending an event (State Fair, Outdoor Expo, etc) at Cal Expo. It's not an RV resort, per se, but they did have a couple of nice dog areas, very close to the American River bike trail and close to big city amenities. If you are there for an event at Cal Expo like we were, you still need to Uber/ Lyft to the gates or over to Papa Murphy Field (Sac Republic, concerts, etc) as it would be a long, long walk. There are no shortcuts, unfortunately. Good power, wifi was pretty weak. Ask for a spot closer to the office so you're not in just a general large asphalt area, although our spot was HUGE! Price was good for 30amp, water & sewage, so we emptied our tanks before heading home. No fire ring, picnic table or any entertainment. This is not a place where you go to hang out for several days, but you get out and explore the area around it. Delivered as expected, so it's good. - Tgianco

This park is a little challenging to find but GPS will bring you to the fair grounds then you need to following the clearly marked road signs to the RV park. It is a basic park and could stand a little grass. There is an asphalt side and a gravel side. Seems like the larger units with tows are placed in the gravel. Sites are close and there is no scenery but it is close to downtown, shopping, the Capital, etc. and the sites are full hook up. The dog park is very nice with lots of grass. The people manning the office are very friendly and attentive. They run a good show. A security guard vehicle is very visible and roams the park from 9pm-6am. There is a nice bike/walking trail just outside the park gate. There are some homeless people living out there but they stay to themselves. They just disappeared the brush. Cyclists and runners made us feel quite safe. We would stay here again. - FT Travelers3

Definitely hard to find even with gps assistance. Signage could be better. Very basic park good for short stays. Staff friendly and helpful. For its size, Sacramento has a small town feel to it. The Capital grounds are very attractive. We would stay here again. - Roger H.

Sites are very tight. Freeway noise is loud. Staff was friendly. Restrooms were being remodeled. - kcp

I will start off with a positive comment. This park was well kept and clean. Beyond that, our stay was the absolute worst during our 2 month, 7,000 mile vacation. The manager, and his staff were the most unprofessional we encountered and had the customer service skills of a box of hair.
There was a situation where we were treated very rudely by a cleaning staff member and we defended ourselves. Big mistake. Manager has a chip on his shoulder and escalated the situation instead of diffusing it. He was threatening, and refused to believe his cleaning person acted completely inappropriately to us. He stated several times that he backs his employees 100% and believed the story his staff member gave to him regarding our situation with her. I respect how he backs his employees, but he was too dim to realize that sometimes the staff is in the wrong.
Additionally, the park is not big-rig friendly. Curves are tight and permanent residents are allowed to park multiple cars on the street. Unfortunately we had a minor finder bender with a permanent resident upon leaving. Several permanent residents, the manager and staff blocked us on the street, pointing, staring and laughing at us as we waited on the police.
The place is right next to a very busy I-80 and noisy. The management is not pet-friendly in spite of allowing pets. We exceeded the pet limit, and management made it clear later that it was not acceptable for us, yet they allowed long term residents to exceed the limit with no repercussions.
Due to all the permanent residents, and the customer service skills of management and staff, the place feels like a trailer park and not a RV park. All that pales in comparison to the atrocious people running this place. I am not surprised at all to see all the many negative reviews regarding the staff. I'm also not surprised to see their rude replies to those who experienced this awful RV Resort and shared their reviews online. - kuppajoe

First, I could never have parked my trailer without the very helpful assistance from the manager. We arrived after dark and the cramped quarters and lack of visibility made it very difficult for me to back my trailer safely. I'm sure the park was established when RV's weren't so large. Most of the spaces are occupied by long term residents. The two available spaces were very small. It is a nice looking park and work has been done and is continuing to improve the appearance of the park. - Watalotahui

Stayed at this park to visit friends. Our site was across a 2 lane road from I-80. Loud all the time. Use your earplugs! The pool is not heated so was too cold for me. They have a small grassy, fenced dog area that our dogs liked. Be sure to park your car with traffic. If you don't, various police agencies patrol this private property and ticket cars regularly. - Go often

This park facilities and sites are well-maintained, and there is a small dog run in the back. The park is primarily for full-timers who have gated yards, and it only has a couple of overnight spots. All spaces are incredibly small and close together, the roads have tight turns around buildings and brick landscaping walls, and we had trouble backing in our 34' motorhome onto our gravel pad, especially with all of the full-timer's vehicles parked opposite our site and everywhere else. At check-in, after a long day of driving, the owner talked to me--at length--about how they don't allow dogs anywhere but the dog run and how anyone caught with a dog relieving itself anywhere else on the property would be immediately asked to leave with no refund. Our site was as far as it could be from the dog run, and the roads were freshly paved, black asphalt in 90+ degree weather. We used the dog run once, but the roads were too hot for tender paws. We had to take our dog to the side of the freeway feeder road, near our site, where there was speeding traffic and a rocky surface with no grass. On the bright side, the little lawn outside our motorhome was immaculate. I can understand wanting to maintain the beauty of the park--and it was beautiful--but we felt like the management was constantly watching for any potential rule-breakers, and it didn't make for a welcoming atmosphere. Also, $55 for a tight gravel pad right next to the freeway is a bit ridiculous. - The Farrells

This is an older park, but it is being maintained adequately. The campground host was very helpful. There is some disparity between the name in TrailerLife directory and the campground's website versus the park signage you actually will see when you drive up. Either it is *becoming* "Sacramento Shade RV Park", or it *used to be* called that, but as of today's date (4/2008) it is "Oak Haven RV Park". Although the park is close by the highway, the park is actually pretty quiet. VERY convenient access to downtown Sacramento, Old Town, and Arden Mall. This park seems oriented more to full-time residents than transient RV'ers. - JimF

We stayed here for 2 weeks due to good reviews on the internet. We called, made a reservation, and had no problems.. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. We were put into a very large and shady spot, and we had no problems. Rate was very affordable. We would stay here again. Was very close to everything we wanted to see and do in Sacramento. There was a lot of stores and restaurants nearby. - avonjudy

Do not even pull in to this campground. It's noisy at all hours of the night with motorcycles, loud cars, and fireworks. The homeless people wander through the park night and day digging in the dumpsters and stealing anything that's not locked. My daughter lost her bicycle. The Wi-Fi will not connect and only shows 1 bar when it shows anything. The only thing going for this park is friendly staff and the price. - possumtrotky

This club is in an industrial part of town. After 5 pm the area closed up and had virtually no noise. Businesses open at 0700 with their accompanying noises. Paved lot with maneuvering room for big rigs. (I'm 43') Easy driving to restaurants and shopping. Normal Elks Lodge amenities. On site black water dump with odd rules about dumping. Ask in advance to see when you can or can't dump. - Bucky Beaver

Not a quality park: the female manager/owner has an attitude that's not tenant friendly. The folks of the park are pleasant and helpful, with only a few odd ones mixed in. The park overall is somewhat in a state of disrepair and could use a good brushing. The place seems secure with an automatic gate and what seems to be real cameras, but you might want to keep a lock and chain handy for those late night visitors. Overall I think that a little care and concern would go along way, or maybe a good swift kick in the pants of the overseer to get that place back on track! - Ole'Man

Mark J RV Park was platted in 1958: yes, it's been here nearly 60 years! The park has many long-term residents, but also has many visitors that stay for a week or two. The older singlewide trailers are slowly being removed as they become vacant. 50A service with good water pressure and sewer at each site. Weekly individual site garbage collection. Park wi-fi... not so good, best in/near the clubhouse. No cable TV, but AT&T can provide telephone service and internet to each site. Park manager has been here for lots of years, lives on-site and offers excellent service. Other reviewers noted noise from busy streets, sirens and other urban distractions, but it is a generally quiet neighborhood evenings and weekends. Grocery & general shopping and restaurants within a short drive. Clean, quiet and well maintained and managed. Excellent value! - Retired-n-Roamin

This daily rate is what it will work out to be when divided by 30 (so it may be just a bit more for the week). This is a minimum stay of 1 week RV park. Monthly rent is $545.00 which includes water, free mail forwarding service, electric (not extra), garbage, sewer and free GOOD WiFi. This park also has a laundry room and if you prefer to dry outside, there are 3 clothes lines to use for drying outside. Centrally located to everything. Walgreens, Tire store, Target, and various restaurants. - Denise M Smith

My wife and I have spent the last six years here: from October to March. It is a great park. The manager runs a tight ship, but the same rules apply to everyone. You have a gravel suite for RV. Asphalt suite for the tow, and a concrete patio. I would have given it a 10, but for the spotty wifi. Owners don't want to invest the money. We still keep in touch with friends here.
(Lot spacing is spacious with some shade. Site surfaces are asphalt, gravel and grass and feature a patio.) - Guy Wassather

We actually didn't stay there. We were told by the Asst. Mgr. that it was first come first serve, no reservations. When we arrived the manager said they were full up. The manager was very nice and sorry about what we were told. Due to it being a gated park, we had to drive through to be let out the other side. Please note this park is not set up for large RV's even though the Asst. Mgr said it was. It is mostly filled with live ins and 1/2 the park is mobile homes. It is in a really bad neighborhood. - judyk

This place is ok, sort of. It's one of the few places around so, any port in the storm. It's in a bad part of town but they do have a security gate. Mostly permanent residents with what seems to be a bunch of illegals right outside the gate milling around waiting for the bus. The office staff was nice to us. Our site was gravel but it was level. Showers were old but clean. Wi-Fi was good, fast and never dropped out. Camp here if you have business in the immediate area - -otherwise I'd suggest that you find another spot. - Jake67

It was a pleasant surprise to find a park where we had adequate room to back into a space without fear of hitting anything. All hookups were in good condition. The Wi-Fi worked great. Spaces are rock with a concrete patio with table. It would be a little dusty for long term stays. Shade is only on long term sites. The people here were very nice. - The Alberts

This is a 55+ mobile home park that also rents RV sites. Very nice and quiet. Managers are very friendly though the site we were in was right up against the permanent mobile home next to us. If you like quiet, safe, reasonably priced ($175/wk), convenient location, this is the place to be. Downside, not much space for sitting out in front of RV. - DonnaandPete

Don't go here. It is a FULL-TIME mobile home community. Even though their site says they have 31 RV sites, in fact they don't. We spoke with the guy a month or more before our reservation date and confirmed an RV site for us. The day before we couldn't get him to answer our voicemail, and no response on the day of either. When we showed up....no guy....no spots....nothing. It looked like they only had a handful of RV sites at all, and all of them appeared to have full-time residents in them. We had to find an alternate at the last minute. Beware. - Hands For Him

We stayed here for 2 weeks on suggestion of some camping neighbors we met in Nebraska. It was perfect except they do not have wifi. Very nice place they have a lot of people that live there and some probably come seasonally, it is for over 55 folks. We were visiting our family that lives nearby. The grandkids and I really enjoyed the pool, it was never crowded and the manager was very nice. We had full hookups plus trash service. Could use a few more washers and dryers but can't really complain because the price was reasonable. Residents were friendly. I would stay here again! - Peggy Mead

As other reviewers commented, there are a few short term rv spaces in this mobile home park. The park is older and residents are friendly. There is no wifi and we were not able to access local tv. We were there for three nights in July while it was 104 degrees. We looked forward to using the swimming pool, which was open until 9:00 p.m. We walked over to the pool around 7:45 p.m and found that the manager made a decision to close the pool two hours earlier. Residents told us this was what he did on weekends so he did not have to come over later to lock the gates. We went to the manager's residence near the pool and asked if he might open the pool as per the sign stating it was open until 9:00. He refused, saying it was his decision to close early. even though it was 104 degrees out. We paid for services and the use of the pool, which was denied by the manager. We will never stay at this park again. - nn5
