We were there for a week of baseball games which was right next to rv park. There is grass and shade trees. Very large sites. Water sewer and electric 30 and 50 amp. There are restrooms with showers. Clean. For us it was perfect. We have stayed here before for baseball games. There are no other amenities. The fair grounds are next to campgrounds also. - Littlegrami

The men's bathroom was not clean except for the one day the caretaker cleaned it. It really needed daily cleaning. Park was OK. We were there for little league tournament. The park was right next to the ball fields, so worked for us. Roads were very dusty. There was hardly anyone there. There are some full time live-ins. The sites if full would be close but hardly anyone stays there. I would stay again for a short period. - Littlegrami

$22 Senior rate can't be beat. ($25 regular) Grass sites that needed several boards to level but hookups were easy and I even found some shade. Famous Frog Jumping fairground, lots of Winery's and a quaint old town but the road - Hwy 49 - is not so 'friendly', be Careful. Easy access to Murphy, CA for a day of wine tasting. WiFi is a charge of $10 day but restrooms are fine and has shower. I get several antenna tv stations and phone service is good. Stayed 2 days and found this park very adequate on my way to Yosemite. - SailorGolf

Had a gravel and dirt, pull through site with trees on both sides. Would be good shade in hot weather. Picnic table was very weathered. No cable TV. Received 21 over the air digital channels. AT&T phone worked fine. My trailer was 2 " off, side to side and I needed blocks to level it. Campground was quiet. The staff took good care of our RV club. - travelcouple

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

This RV Park has gone downhill since our last stay here. Sites are unpaved; ours has had erosion & was so un-level that leveling wasn't possible. There appears to have been no maintenance on the sites themselves for years. Worst of all, our RV club arrived with more than 10 RVs, only to be told upon arrival that on our second day here, power would be shut off throughout the RV park from 9 AM - 5 PM the next day. They had known about this for more than a week, but did NOT advise RVers with reservations that we would be paying for power for an entire day when there would be no power. - jobriant

We had a good time because of the folks we were with. And it was close to Columbia--a very cool place to visit. Also, if you are in the area, make sure you visit Sonora. However, I cannot recommend the park for the following reasons: 1. Very, very, VERY run down. Nothing seemed in good repair. 2. Cable was "out" and there were no plans to repair it since it was too expensive. 3. The owner gave our phone number to another camper because the other camper thought one of our friends broke his tail light when leaving. This was a non kosher move. I had to leave our phone number as part of the check-in process. He had no business giving it out to another--for any reason. 4. Nothing but some folding chairs and an old pool table in the "clubhouse." 5. The only TV that was available was in the laundry room. 6. No fire pits, though that's OK since Calif is full of "no burn" days. 7. Wi Fi was non existent. Had to use my phone's hot spot for internet access. 8. The campground has trees in the middle of the road. They are pretty, but pose obstacles that make it a challenge to navigate around as we attempt to back in. - GilesScott

.Maintenance is lacking in the park. This literally is in a quarry. All dirt sites. Lots of shade trees in bottom section, but few where we stayed. Nice desk folks. Would not stay here again . - Joyce Denke

The park is clean, friendly, funky gold country historical park but there are a few things that keep me from a better review. Not dog unfriendly but definitly not a dog happy park, very small area to walk and a small poop area. Any longer walks around the park are prohibited to dogs. You can't safely walk down to the State Park, the road is too dangerous. The main issue I have is your DL/ID is photocopied on entry plus you're issued a wifi id code that is unique to your own name and address. I've never been in a park ever that wanted to photocopy my info, plus be personally identifiable to your name/addr for wifi. I was assured it is never used but how do I know for sure? Very unsafe in these times. - Jerry B

Enjoyed this park very much. Very friendly staff and it was a pleasure to stay. Loved the park offering free hotdogs and smores. Move very slowly in park. Very tight turns. - Felix Locum

Family friendly park. Spots are pretty close to each other but we didn't feel cramped, and staff was very helpful in parking our trailer. We felt right at home here, enjoyed the amenities, especially the Friday hot dog/chili. We ended up meeting folks from an RV club who invited us to join them and we had a lot of fun. I would definitely return when staying in this area again. - Off_we_go

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

Dry RV camping only.
Saw some Car and tent camping at park.
Good place to "anchor " while exploring California Sierra s.
Close to Angels Camp and copperopolous
Park was clean, staff friendly.
Lots to explore just at the camp grounds.
Views are amazing. - Dedecd

The difference between a privately run campground and a city/county park is obvious when entering the fairground CG. The park is self check-in with no assistance or help. The CG is confusing in its lay out and probably makes sense but not to us. Asphalt roads with all grass sites, the hook-ups are confusing. The grass had not been cut in weeks and lots of deferred maintenance. The location is quiet at night with good access to the city. Because of its location and lack of options in the area we would return. - sjones

This place offers many different types of sites and utility options. We stayed in the area behind the grandstands had 50 amp with water and sewer. The site was fairly level with the open field in front that was rather bumpy to drive through. There are no views of anything, however lots of area to walk a dog. - illini777

Stayed in advance of the Strawberry Music Festival near Tuolumne, arriving on A Wednesday afternoon. First come-first served, envelope system for payment. Full hookups and wonderful water.
The upper RV sites are in shade and pretty level in an open, park-like setting. There were a few other campers nearby, all music festival attendees.
Fine place to camp: easily accessible off the highway and close to town for all our shopping needs in advance of a 4-day music event. - ReggieK

This review is written as a member of a group of 14 rigs staying 3 nights at this RV park. The kitchen and club room facilities are excellent. The "group loop" is exclusive to the group. 50 amp was not available at our site as well as lack of sewer. Satellite coverage is obtainable in some spots. The dump station is near the park entrance and easily accessible. A lot of previous negative comments on this site are either non-existent or corrected. I would recommend this park to any group of 16 or less. - WindsorDave

Condition of the Park ranges from good to bad. Some of the trailers look like they are falling apart and need to be towed away while others are brand new. The bathroom and showers work but the water is luke warm at best and the pressure is terrible. Extremely slippery floors. Roads are in good condition, but with aggressive speed bumps all over the place. They weed whack fairly often so the weeds stay down.
Manager and Owner not pleasant or understanding. Made me feel inferior. Park has Loud Bass Booming Music, Loud Cars with Exhaust, Highway right next to it, and kids you don't know who get into your stuff and ask for stuff. Don't go here. - CornDog1982

This is a pleasant park. The manager is very friendly and accommodating. Lots of long term residents but lots are kept clean and tidy. Surprised at the trees and shade. Pool is beautiful. Restrooms and showers are extremely clean. Keys are given out to the over nighters. The only complaint is some lots are parked next to three big propane dispensers. Kind of unnerving. - Snooker2

Great little full hookup RV park in the big trees....right adjacent to Calaveras Big Trees State Park. Its a bit rustic here but that's part of its attraction. Great owners who try hard to make this a nice park. One tip: beware of falling tree sap...at least in the Fall when I stayed there. I would stay there again. - Captain Gort

This is a terrific little mountain RV park with great owners. I would give it 5 stars except for one TERRIBLE problem: Pine Sap! After just 2 days under these trees, my rig is literally drenched with it! Thousands of 1/4"+ blobs on EVERYTHING. My awning is probably ruined! You can't even walk around your rig without your shoe soles turning into clumps of pine/dirt, like asphalt. Ever try to remove pine sap? Its almost like epoxy. It will take days of hard work to clean up this mess, and even then, I'm sure there will be permanent damage. I've RV'd all over the USA and never faced this. Sadly, I'll not return here because of this.....:-( If you like cleaning pine sap, by all means stay here!!! - Captain Gort

Park is in a beautiful setting, the air smells so fresh. Sites are a little tight but manageable. Take your time manuerving through the park. Staff is very helpful and friendly. They had a 'communal' fire pit which was nice as we were able to meet new people and our firepit was kind of in the way for our neighbor. There are some locals using the park as a weekend retreat and we found then and the atmosphere to be friendly. We used the site as a home base to visit Big Trees State Park, Yosemite National Park and South Lake Tahoe. We felt lucky as a local band showed up at the park on Friday to 'practice' and they also played at Camp Connell.....what a treat! - locatjl

This is the only RV Park in Twain Harte. Dirt/gravel sites that need some leveling. All back-in with full hook ups. Older park with lots of trees. Only 15 sites in the front, all the rest are permanent trailers and motorhomes. Very nice swimming pool and a small playground for kids. Cable TV at each site, and Wi-Fi only at the Office. Quiet at night. Rate shown is with Good Sam, they charge you the full amount up front, and we would recommend reservations since they only have a few sites available. Staff was very polite and helpful. - zigzag

We only gave this campground a 4 because it was in the mountains and had a nice playground. Otherwise it would probably get a 1. The bathrooms were absolutely filthy. There was 1 shower stall and 1 toilet to share co-ed. That's gross. Mold and dirt/grime was all over the shower. You can tell nobody ever cleans it. The bathroom was out of toilet paper and was dirty and we were the only ones staying in the campground. The other side of the park is for permanent trailer home residents which feels strange. The sign advertises clean bathrooms yet I would definitely ask to see them before you check in if you plan to use them, because this place is nasty. Also it says Wi-fi, but that is only right by the office. If you do stay here, there is a pastry shop about a mile up the road that sells some incredible breakfast pastries: the best I've ever had in my life! Made me glad we came up this way. It's about 80 miles from Yosemite. - adventure

Small park in the tall trees. Sites are close together so they give you two, one for your tow vehicle. Restroom was very clean. Pool was sparkling although it was too cold to swim when we were there. Nice nature trail. There is also a nice playground structure. Park caters mostly to permanents but they are on the other side and up a hill, away from the campground. Tent area is shady and nice. This park is close to Twain Harte, Sonora, and the historic town of Columbia. Black Oak Casino is about 12 miles away. The owner is very friendly and is doing a great job of upgrading the park. We enjoyed our stay and will return. - rosewood38
