What is the park where at in facilities in cleanliness it made up for with its beautiful lake. The highlight of our 2 week stay here were the boys fishing and evening walks around the lake! We stayed in the back “D” section (no sewer hookup) of the park so we used the bathroom as much as possible. While one could classify the bathroom as “clean” it was dated and seemed to always smell a bit (probably due to the dump station being 40’ away? Bottom line: we’d definitely return. We loved the lake and the no sewer / bathrooms were very manageable. - Few Miles

Quiet, clean and nice staff. No sewer, in back section. Front section, with sewer, is cramped and busy. We opted for 'non sewer', 3 weeks, no problems. Plenty of dump stations & Rest rooms, so 'Blue Boy' worked just fine. We enjoyed the amazingly CLEAN restrooms! Note: Walnut & Oak trees abound, weep sap, so be careful where you park. - work2fish

The full hookup section has tight spaces. The no sewer section on the other side of the lake had slightly bigger spots. The lake was nice, took about 30 minutes to walk around it. Great sunsets over the lake. Canoe/kayak rentals are $6. AT&T and Verizon reception were spotty. Wifi only in the lodge, couldn't get it to work. The people who live here for an extended period of time (retired) were very nice. There are chickens on site that roam around. Rooster will wake you up in the morning. We stayed for a week, towards the end of our week the Memorial Day crowd moved in. Neighbors on three sides of us argued very loudly, woke us up one morning. Town of Yuba is 30 minutes away. Nothing closeby. - Shaughn

Park is located @ 25 miles from Yuba City, so be sure you stock up on groceries, gas, and supplies before arrival. Nice drive from Yuba City to the park, with some small hills and curves. Its a local favorite for many because of the "wildlife" and location in the hills, but we found there is little to do in the area, and quite a distance to drive to find hiking or things to do outside of the park. (We travel full time, and spend very little time at a park, or use the amenities) We stayed in Section D so we would have Cell and Satellite service. Some of the roads are very tight, little to no signage as to directional travel. Many sites in Section D have been converted to "TS" (Tent sites) because of all the electrical issues in this entire section! We had issues with our site, and they came out and changed out the receptacle but still continued to have problems for the length of our stay. **DO NOT stay in Section D without having a "EMS". A lot of Section D is very "unkept" and overgrown with bushes, trees, etc. Other sections of the park are much different, and are very well maintained, brush/limbs are cut back, etc. For us, We would not stay here again only because of the distance from hiking and other outdoor activities that we do. I can appreciate how many others would love to go to this park, because of its setting, abundance of wildlife, peacefulness, and ability to "unplug and get away". - RiversedgePA

We stayed here as Thousand Trails members. I have to admit, at first I thought this place was a bit sketchy. The park is older and in some ways run down. Many perfectly good spots are tents only and I suspect it's due to the fact the power isn't working at those sites. Some sites are pretty ugly, dug out of the hillside and rather unlevel. But there are many gems tucked away in the trees. Our spot was level, secluded and we had a great view of a grassy hillside that deer visited every evening. Good shade too in a lot of spots. The lake is beautiful and full of fish. The lodge is very nice with an adult room with free pool tables (you have to pay to play in the rest of the lodge) and a huge lending library. We ended up really loving the resort and if the new pavement on the road in and our very new power pole are any indication, they are making improvements. We'd certainly stay again. - DanJenNevada

If you enjoying actual camping, rather than RV camping, this is a beautiful place. If you don't need an internet or cell signal, or are willing to give up sewer for those, this is a beautiful place.
But since this is a review on a website for RVers, I would not recommend it. My first day here was frustrating beyond belief.
The only sewer available is in X section (note that that section is not available to the public). There supposedly are a few sewer sites in the other sections, but by "a few", I mean "2 or 3", and good luck. Furthermore, there isn't even 1 dump station for every section, and these sections are really spread out.
Here's the lowdown on cell and internet, because I got mislead by other reviews: If you need internet or cell phone service for work, just don't come here, period. The ONLY sections where there is a usable signal (ie, more than 2 bars of 3G) are the top of D section and parts of I section.
Here's the problem with that: About HALF of D section has no electricity. While I was pulling into a spot there, an annual 2 spaces away was nice enough to come tell me before I had leveled, etc., that the space I'd chosen actually had no power, in spite of the lack of a sign; and that, furthermore, unless I had a power booster, I was probably better off not staying in that whole section because the power supply was so bad. (He didn't volunteer this to get rid of me - he told me when I asked him.) H section was closed so we could not check for sewer or data signal there.
If you only need a cell phone occasionally, and are able to deal with dial-up speeds from your Jetpack, and don't need sewer, you might just really like this place. But if you want a sewer site (and also don't care about your Verizon signal) and don't want to pay an extra 5 bucks a night for it, you're still rolling the dice, because they also loaded up the X section with 50 amps sites. (11 of the 40 sites there are 50 amp.)
I wish someone had told me all this before I planned my spring around this campground! - Karen On The Road

For the price this is not a good value. Parking in grass field and due to recent rain they tried to park me on the road. My power cord would not reach 30' to the pedestal. Water hook-ups are underground and filled with nasty rotting leaves and who knows what else. Gate is locked at night but they provide the code to unlock. Bathroom/showers are a disaster that looked like they hadn't been cleaned in years. Unless you have a reason to be in the area I don't recommend this park. Choices are extremely limited so go in with your eyes open and expectations low. Be careful with the gate as it is heavy and hard to manage rolling it open/close. - NorCal Dan

Grassy sites. Electric & water only. No wifi, some tv channels without cable. Dump station on site. Water hookup in the ground boxes. There was traffic noise, we needed earplugs. We were attending an event at the fairgrounds and stayed 2 nights. We had to pick up a lot of dog poop around our site so we wouldn't step on it. - Bintraveling3

Overnight stay with late arrival. Called for gate code, but was not directed to a gate. Drove around grounds twice before trying the livestock gate, code worked. Site is large grass area with trees down lane. Sites far apart and very little lighting, so coming in dark not easy , and some areas soft from watering. Facilities were fairground standards, few spiders but usable. Water was not marked and hard to find, until morning when staff came by. Staff friendly, but hard to find. Will stay again when in area probably. No site amenities so bring your own. - jimNann

Friendly office staff. Only booked one day, so we were glad after seeing our space, which had a very small space between RVs. Shady spot but very small cement patio. Wifi spotty. No cable TV, Picnic table, fire pit or BBQ available. Machinery noise from auto shop next door during the day. Very quiet at night though. Clean park & restrooms. But not a place I would stay at more than a day. Only recommend as a overnight stay if traveling through town. - Girl4God

There was barely enough space to park both the 35' trailer and our tow truck. - pshep

Great place to stay one night. Cable not available but they get good reception. - Judy2shoes

Use Wheatland gate, high clearance and road is maneuverable for RVs. As you start to enter, head towards the commercial area, then swing back to the gate. Hours are 0500-2100.
Paved and fairly level sites, grass area, some shade but mostly sunny, bathrooms and showers were at the office area, very clean. Nearby lake, but very little shade. Stayed in a full hookup site for 3 nights and one night in overflow next to office. While in overflow we had 20 amp electric.
There were many sites with longer term residents, seemed like families stationed on base, so availability goes fast. - C Young

Beale is too far out of the way and too inconvenient to get to for me to return, but if you have to be here for some reason, its not a bad park. The office seems to be staffed only some of the time, but service was very friendly. My site had cigarette butts on it when I arrived. The back-ins could be tricky for trailers and 5th wheels, but easy for motorhomes. Many sites are not level. Some have shade, some don't. While the sites are not that close together, you might have trouble with slides or awnings due to trees. All of the trees give it a pretty, rustic appearance. Some folks seems to be staying awhile, and the people next to me had all kinds of junk piled around and under their trailer. The roads around the base are very sketchy - stick to the exact directions they give you, as some of the parallel roads are rutted, closed, covered in gravel, etc. The base looks like it has been forgotten by the Air Force. - KAP99

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

We stayed mid-week in May and there were only a couple other people in the park. Lawns were well kept and sites were clean. There was adequate space between sites. We did not use their restrooms or showers but took a peek and they appreared/smelled clean, but old. It's a good overnight spot and we would stay again. - User2486

Overall a below average experience. Shower drains were semi plugged but a shower nonetheless. One flush toilet (that I saw). Port-o-potties otherwise. Yuk. No cooking grate over the fire pits - bring a BBQ. Or travel with your food to find one of the few grills that seem to be in common areas. Hope you like your neighbors. Spaces are pretty close together. Water at every site makes up for some inconveniences. The noise level in this campground was absurd. Barking dogs-OMG! Some dude brought his sound stage?! With a light show no less! Terrible and too loud singing from 7:30 to after 9. It's camping people: for karaoke, head to the bar, not the great outdoor. Please have some respect for the spirit of what camping is about. Leave the portable loud speakers at home. And the too much barking dogs too. Campground caretakers seem to be less than visible when required to address campground rules. - Camp tourist

This park is getting better every time we stay here. We use this park as a base camp every year, and we have watched it improve with every visit. The county has now placed an on-site caretaker here, and they continue to make improvements. It is very quiet here during January and we noticed that the locals are not abusing the facilities any more. If you are in a big rig, be aware of overhanging tree limbs and a few tight turns though. We navigated it with a 36' fifth wheel with some minor difficulty. Slim to none opportunity to find a satellite with a roof mounted unit, portable units will work better at finding a hole through the many Sycamore trees. Bathrooms have been upgraded with tile and new fixtures, but they still are not kept very clean. - americana36

This is a beautiful, country setting campground. My older children go often with their friends and spend fun time together. It offers it all: swimming, boating, fishing, etc. - abijjeli

Campground is not as bad as I had read. The lake was way down and very muddy. It was 7 miles to fuel and a small town. Sites do have some shade but are not level. There are limited rest rooms: kind of clean with no showers. Noisy after 10! We stayed in the RV section and it was more tame then the tent sites. We wouldn't come back. - Tredguy

We have been to this park before , we stay for a few months at a time because of my work. The park is well kept, with beautiful trees and green grass. Dogs are allowed and they do have a run which my dog loves. I would have to say its reasonably safe, and mostly quiet at night with no real traffic noise like at other parks. There are trains in the distance but just a few times a week not a bother. The staff is really nice, knowledgeable and helpful, and if they can accommodate a request, they will. They do have monthly rates as well as weekly and daily. Pull thru's are long enough for a 40 ft. fifth wheel and truck. Everything is full service,water,50 amp and sewer. - Ralf

Landscaping maintained, pool and spa were dirty, bathroom and showers were dirty, laundry room - one dryer had gum stuck to it that was not cleaned. Staff were somewhat helpful. Park located on Hwy 99 where there was a shopping center with a Safeway, fast food, and Black Bear Restaurant with excellent large portions of food. Could also walk up one block to the Casa Lupe Mexican Restaurant with excellent food. Starbucks is another block up. - BusNuts

There are a lot of permanent residents here and a few run down rv's but it was fine for an overnight stay. - Murdoch
May 2013 - $25.00
Lots of shade under the mature trees here tucked in the back of the fairgrounds. Being a fairgrounds and not an RV resort there are no 'facilities' (showers/restrooms/laundry) as part of the RV area, and the long-term residents seemed to not pick up after their dogs but rather just let them run loose in the adjacent ball field. But otherwise clean, & nice and quiet. - AussieMom

This is not a destination park, but it works quite well for a short stay in the area. As noted, it is a fairground, so it will not be available all of the time for folks passing through, so it is best to call. You check in at the fairground office across from the pool. I put that the campground has 39 sites, but their numbering system indicates there may be more that I am not counting. When we stayed there were only about 10 other campers, so there was lots of space. When it is almost empty like this, you can make some sites into pull-through sites. Also when occupied like this, there is lots of space. If the campground were full, it would be very crowded with close spaces. It is in a very quiet area and felt very secure. There are some big lights around, but they did not come on, so it was nice a dark at night, which we like. It is very convenient to shopping, such as there is in Gridley. It is also very convenient to the Gray Lodge Wildlife area, which is the reason we visited the area. Our Verizon cell phone and data worked well. If visiting the area, we would certainly stay here again. For the price it cannot be beat. - TheJim

Been here several times and can't wait to go again. The staff is great. One of the workers spent an hour helping us try to get our boat motor started. We finally gave up and rented one of their boats and had a lovely day on the lake, which wasn't crowded at all. The campground was very clean. Be prepared for zero cell or WiFi in the campground unless you go right behind the store. - Rusty_C

Price shown is for a lake front (W & E-30amp) with a senior discount. Semi-level gravel site with shade and plenty of room. Fire pit and picnic table. They have three sewer dumps as you exit the park, or you can pay for a pump-truck to come to your site. Quiet at night, security, the entrance gate is locked for entry at dusk, open for exit. No cell phone reception, no TV reception, free Wi-Fi only at the Office. No towns close by, so you're here for the lake activities. They have small grocery and bait store at the office. Showers were clean, $.50 for 4 minutes. We camped at Collins Lake Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel. - zigzag

We camped her is February over a long weekend. It was very clean, registration was in the general store and it was very quick. Very pricey and it requires a 2 night stay. You can only make reservations by calling them and they book a year out. We could only stay one night so they suggested calling the day of and making a reservation which worked great in February. Most sites are on a hill side with level pads for your RV or tents. The lake is very pretty and there are many sites along the lake. No AT&T reception there except by the general store. Dump station on the way out of the park. - RVingChick
