Park was well maintained and runs along a small creek that feeds into the river. Beautiful place to sit and relax. Bathrooms were clean and park staff were great to work. - Shortclan

We stayed at Riverbend 4 Days/3 Nights. Very peaceful! Great staff! Several wineries and nice restaurants near by. Several easy access spaces for large RV's. Numerous large oak trees that provide great shade. We left our RV at the park and did day trips to Yosemite and Kings Canyon National Park. The Park is on the Kings River which is known for great trout fishing but the season was closed during our visit - James Entwisle

The RV Park is under new ownership and they are doing a great job. The park is filled with California Oaks and very peaceful. It's on the Kings River with a small Creek that runs through it. The restrooms have keypad entry, with a private shower and and toilet area which was very nice and very clean. The 180 highway is under construction and made it difficult to locate the RV Park. The park is a natural setting not all concrete and asphalt. Sequoia National Park is about 60 miles. - Mark DeWayne

Grass smelled like dog urine unfriendly staff. Very over priced and over rated! Would not recommend to anyone! - cyoung5

We had an excellent site here with full hookups. The campground host saw us come in and recommended it because of the size of our fifth wheel (32 feet). It was a perfect site, but I have to be honest, it was a "host" site that was open to the public after Labor Day. The park ranger and the campground host were very friendly and helpful. They really made you feel welcome. Now, the entrance to the campground is not great. My husband was concerned that we might have trouble with the hills and curves going out, but we made it just fine. Not sure a larger rig would have found it as easy. Also, the host said there were rattlesnakes in the area, but we didn't see any. This is a great park and we would stay here again if we were in the area. - Bobbi1948

We had a very different experience then the other camper. It might be nicer in the cooler months. We stayed mid July and it was really hot (100+). There were some trees, but not much shade, they were pretty dead trees. We stayed in site 18 (upper) with hookups. I was very upset when we pulled up and our spot was IN the parking lot. Yes: no camp site. The street also didn't go though so not sure how a bigger trailer would go though there without doing a 20 point turn. There were a lot of cars in the parking lot, so it was hard to get to our spot. It looks like anybody can just park here and walk to the lake, so that was probably why it was crowded. I also thought the lake was closer. It was too far to walk with 2 kids, so we just drove. Our power went out a couple times also. 100+ weather in a trailer with no air isn't fun. We paid for something that wasn't working. We also had to hike up a hill to get to our table and firepit. It wasn't right next to us. When went to hook up our water, it was across the street and the hose bib wasn't threaded. You couldn't hook a standard hose to it. It looked like the other sites were like that too. We did end up filling the tanks with a lot of work. They do have a dump site on the way out which was nice. We were also told we could get cell service here. The area we stayed would get cell service here and there. It would cut out when we would make a call. This campgroup is about 45 minutes from Fresno. We will never camp at this place again. Usually we are fine with campgrounds, but this place was bad. Also, you don't have much privacy. People in tents are right next to their neighbor campsites, practically in each others sites. We stayed two nights and the people we came with left the day they got here because of no power. Their site was 26 I believe, which was right across from us. It was hard to get the trailer level because it was on such an incline. They didn't feel safe in it. If you have the time, I would say to go Shaver Lake instead. We love camping at (another park) which is less then 2 hours away. You pay only a little bit more and you get full hookups. - googles

This is an older COE campground. We reserved site 14 with electric only. The only 3 sites with full hook ups are "walk-up" only, meaning first-come basis. We stayed in 14 for 4 days then switched to site 8 which does have full hook-ups and a beautiful view of the lake. It was very quiet and peaceful and the camp-host/kiosk attendant was very friendly. I was a little apprehensive about the steep climb getting back to the main highway but my coach pulled it fine. However, other than the 5 days of unexpected thunderstorms and rain (not their fault) they did find 5 rattle snakes in a few other campsites. So beware if you camp here. We will definitely camp here again. - P&Ax2onThe Go

Really tight for big rigs, uneven ground. Power a little scary but it worked. Will not return. - Buck44

A small park, geared for seasonals. Just off the freeway, it's really a stop over on the way to someplace else. The regular price seems a little steep for what's offered. Noisy freeway on one side, busy train tracks right on the other. You'll have a hard time getting a sound sleep. Having said that, the people were friendly enough, the place clean. Ok value for the Passport America 50% discount. - Two Travellers

Not a destination RV resort. Small, mostly monthly users, but they try to keep a few spots open for travelers. Stay a night, maybe two then move on. - John & Aleda

We booked our reservation at this RV Resort in October 2016. We arrived at the resort at 3:00 p.m. on 4/29/17. The sign shows office hours of 10-4. The office was closed when we arrived. Rang the buzzer, no one answered. Called the after hours number. Woman who answered said she was in town and would be back in 10 minutes. When she arrived her appearance was less than business like even for a campground. She was courteous and explained they had experienced some flooding from the river and the ground was till drying out. We understood. She offered us site 44 and it was a good thing we took it as site 43 still had standing water in it. When we got out of our rig we were greeted by an unpleasant smell. Thought it was from the flooding until we read another review from two weeks prior stating the river flooding had caused the sewer system to back up onto the grounds covering his patio rug and hoses in feces. Now we know what the smell was as the ground was still wet. It would have been nice to know this problem had occurred before my husband crawled on the ground under the coach to put the jack pads down so our jacks would not sink into the soft, wet ground. Many older, unmaintained permanent RV's in the park. All amenities are in much need of repair. Not well maintained park at all. Extremely disappointed. Will lose one day's rental fee and be inconvenienced, but we are relocating our rig to another park as even one more night in this park is not worth the price they charge. - LivADrm

We have been here before and enjoyed the peace and quiet of being off the road away from the highway and near the river area (only has water in mid summer) This time we were surrounded by workers who partied all night, had to pay for our electricity ($8.19 for one night) on top of the $45.00 and were charged for Tengo internet ($4.00) if we wanted it for one night. We asked for a partial refund due to the extreme noise while we were trying to sleep but no dice. We will not return. We don't need to be nickel and dimed for our stay. It is an insult. - saturn7

Was all right for a couple of nights. Do not recommend for a long term stay, did not have much to offer in way of amenities. Site map stated there were trash bins throughout the park; after a 10 minute walk we found 1 near the laundry room.
We were there in November, park had the feel it was closed for the season. - Our-Wandering-Casa

If you are passing through think of this as a Walmart parking lot with hookups and security.
I would not stay here again.
Security was kind.
Person that helped with booking was kind and prompt. - redwake

We stopped here for an overnight stay. It is a fenced and gated location with power, water and sewer connections. The spaces are very small, basically on an asphalt parking lot located behind the livestock show area. It's not an RV park per se, I suppose its more for the fair personnel or attendee's. That being said, the staff on the phone and the night watchman were very helpful and polite. we arrived around 12:30AM and the Watchman met us at the gate and escorted us to the RV area. Since there was no one else around, we didn't have to unhook, which was a good thing. For an overnight stay, it was a good value. We were able to sleep securely, wake up with coffee and a shower before hitting the road again. It beat the heck out of a highway rest stop or Walmart parking lot. - JP-JP

As it was July, we knew it would be hot and it was. The campsites were on blacktop and the temp is 105 F., all in the sun. Ugh! Went to use the rest room and shower, big mistake. There was mosquito larvae in the toilet, at least the water was potable. Now for a nice cool shower. Turned on the cold water and waited and waited; it got hotter and hotter. Checked the tap out side same thing. With great wisdom the pipes were run in the peak of the roof where it was very hot, NO COLD WATER. Enjoy your stay!
This is a very substandard stopping place; you can't call it a Park as you have minimal amenities and are subject to the influx of animals right where you park. The animal pens are in the open air building right in front of the parking area. This facility was an afterthought of the fair board.
Don't stop, you will be better off at Wal-Mart. If you do stop, check it out before you pay. - Tom G Oregon unit

Very pretty grounds, good playgrounds and laundry, very helpful staff. They have worked hard to make it lovely. After reading the older reviews and noting that the park is under new ownership we decided to go in. Glad we did. - Road ramblers

We have stayed at Riverland for about eight years and love this place deyond measure. They have had a few problems in the past and with this last flood I believe it will return to the wonderful place it is. The restaurant is getting ready to open again and the park is back in order after the flood. Anybody who loves to jet ski and boat or swim will love Riverland. - JohnStegman

Clean, spacious, all amenities except cable, cheery service. - Judy2shoes

This has been an enjoyable stay for us. That's because of the infectious friendliness and hustle of the two park managers. The strategic value of this campground is that it is closest to the north entrance of Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks. That is important to keep in mind because it does come with some quirks. For example, there is almost never anyone present in the park office (suggest you call about an hour out from arrival). Reservations are made by leaving a message; you will be called back. Next, as an old mobile home park, all the hook-ups are located inconveniently for RVs; however, management will allow guests to drive on the grass to better maneuver into position. Despite claims to the contrary, in 3 days I was not able to spot a single pull-thru site-they are all back-ins. The place is covered with beautiful green grass and the night sky is to die for. Sites have ample separation and utilities proved reliable. While there is no cable TV, we pulled 24 non-network channels. Wi-Fi is present but weak during busy times of the day/night. Verizon coverage was strong. We used a park near the south entrance to Sequoia in conjunction with this park to thoroughly explore Kings Canyon/Sequoia without driving forever. As a strategy, it worked well. We stayed 3 nights and our rent reflects a 20% military discount. This place is very basic and not fancy, but friendly service goes a long way! - TMN-15

Closest campground to North Entrance of Kings Canyon/Sequoia National Parks. Extremely friendly management and level back in grass and asphalt 30/50 amp full hook up sites. Have added a restroom, laundry and showers this year. Not much to look at in the park. It is mostly permanents and mobile homes, but well kept. Probably 40 overnight sites near the front. No amenities but good wifi and okay cell service. Hook ups are in the back of the sites so plan ahead. Would stay here again. - teepee51

Former mobile home park. Utilities located on rear on passenger side (typical for Mobile Home but backwards for RV). Office being renovated and manager hard to contact. Very spacious sites but owners are far away and are slow to it fix up. Did not see any pull-thru. Quite park. - Baddad53

We have stayed here several times and we have never seen the park looking so bad. The grass has not been cut in a long time and the weeds are taking over. That said the manager is doing an outstanding job of managing the park. She goes above and beyond to make you feel welcome. We will stay again. - StarlifterFE

Overnight at the Fresno Elks Lodge #439 (a members only campground) in Fresno, CA, which has 10 campsites with 30A electric service and water. An onsite dump is available and is included in the $20/night rate. I tow a trailer for which most Elks Lodges have available parking because all campsites are back in. This site was packed dirt with some grass between sites with ample room to deploy slides. Shade trees at the rear of site leaving direct line of sight to TV satellites. OTTA TV programs available too. Dogs are permitted but must be leashed. The Elks Lodge grill/restaurant is available for meals when serving. Easy access to shopping and other amenities in the area. A nice, quiet stay for one or two nights on the road. Seven day limit but exceptions can be made. Front desk person was very friendly, offering recommendations for restaurants close by. - kihei7

We arrived with a reservation for a six night stay. Reservations can be made a month or so in advance. Checkin is very easy with cash or check, no credit cards. There are ten sites with 30 amp electric and water service. Two of the sites are used by the camp host in site 4 and a small Class-C in space 1 that has been there for a very long time. Very, very low water pressure. Hookups for site 5 were on the curb side of our rig so make sure you have enough hoses to reach the water connection. There is another parking site next to the lodge building that has electric service and I did see another rig dry camping near the entrance. Most of the sites will take a big rigs but not all. The camp host will ask the size of your RV when you call for a reservation. A lot of traffic noise in the area. The Lodge's WiFi is virtually worthless. Could connect sometimes but getting emails and simple surfing the web was painful. Used our jet pack 98% of the time. Verizon cell service was strong and we were able to get a DTV satellite signal. If you want to use the exercise room and showers make sure you get a key card from the camp host. $10 deposit. - StarlifterFE

We stayed one night at this park, which is located behind some businesses in a very busy part of Fresno. The site was level concrete, but once it started raining there were large, deep puddles all around. Office is open for very abbreviated hours and was closed while we were there. Bathrooms and showers were dirty and light was out in one of them. Someone staying at the park stopped to chat and warned us that homeless come around and steal so be sure to lock up all belongings. Electrical outlet was quite loose and initially gave a ground fault, but we fiddled with it and got power. We would not stay here again and do not recommend it. - Mrs Hammster

We stayed at Blackstone North and were very happy with the park. The grounds were clean, well kept. The 2 ladies in the office were very helpful and nice. They went out of their way to find us a nice spot. I would recommend to everyone to stay here. - Angie Jackson

I'm a full timer RV. This is my base park and pay monthly. There has been some management changes and they are adjusting. The parks location to shopping and restaurants is excellent. It appears that the park is in transition but I am hopeful it continues to add maintenance personnel to keep grass cut and sites clean. Overall, from my limited experience, the park is quite adequate. - Pugdaddy
