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 will go back! Great park for big rigs. Most all of the sites are pull thru. Several golf courses nearby. Lots of great restaurants in Grass Valley and Nevada City. Bring your motorcycle. Great riding from the campground. Small fishing lake next to the park. - Lonnyp

Dry camping, no number, just park it. We dry camped for the Draft Horse Classic (which you should attend sometime) We have in the past had full hook ups but its such a big and nice fairgrounds (said to be the best in California by many) we like to dry camp. In full hook ups 50 AMP. The also have water/power hookups scattered around the grounds you can us if you wish. You can camp in big open fields, in the trees or ?? They just tell you, go find a place you like. WiFi is good, cell service strong. We will stay here again (in fact have booked another stay there for October 2018). Dump station is available near the office. Easy to get to. - Bobcat1

Staff very friendly. Park very quiet. Power and water all good. All hook up in center as well as dump. Sites level and gravel. They have a water truck twice a day to keep dust down. Some shade area's are tall pines. If you need clearing for satellite center of site map best for that. Verizon signal about 2 bars works good over air TV signal ok too. Great park and location for visiting the area. - margeandbob

Issues with recycling not being picked up and overflowing. It was ugly. All back in site. Miles away from base checkin post. Commissary was super. Utilities worked fine. They don't enforce dogs not being on leashes. - hug448844

Very nice, clean and spacious FamCamp. Sites are level asphalt and extra long. Park is arranged with 6 circles and 8 sites in each circle. Free wi-fi which can be spotty and no cable, but we used our satellite with no problem. Small patio and picnic table. Lots of trees for shade, laundry and a fishing lake all on site. The base is huge, 25,000 acres, with just a very small part being used. So, lots of wide open spaces and plenty of room to walk the dogs or ride your bike. Small commissary and exchange on base and also a movie theater and bowling alley. About a 20 min. ride into Yuba City which has all the major stores. Very quiet place with not a lot to do, but great for a nice restful visit. - travelswithpuppies

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
