Stunning location right on the American River, 1 mi from Sutter's Mill, where gold first discovered. Otters, ducks and geese on the river. Friendly, helpful staff. Only gave it a 7 because sites are narrow and overcrowded. Our slideouts ran right to the edge of the space (we're not that wide) and our neighbor's awning overlapped into our space, within 6 inches of a nonslideout wall. Water and 50 amp only in most. We camped right on the river (section H), premium space, $5 on top of free Thousand Trails membership. Over weekend it was like a parking lot, crowded with trailers and trucks. Better on Mon, when everyone pulled out. Also, Rt 49 in from I-80 is a nightmare. 7-1.2% grade, 15 mph switchbacks up and down Auburn Canyon. Best route is from the south, Rt 50. Get off at Cameron Park Rd N to E on Valley View to N on Lotus. Left where Lotus Ts with Rt 49. Campground is right over bridge. We camped in a 35 ft motorhome. Not suitable for anything larger. - VickyfromNZ

We visited as TT members and were scheduled for 2 nights but left the same day we arrived. The only thing we were told when we checked in 5 times was if we chose a 50 amp site there is a $5 a night fee. Nothing else. There are no activities. No AT&T reception. No one under 18 allowed in the rec room (my son is 16 and was locked out because I wasn't with him). No wifi, except within 8-10 feet of rec room. This is NOT a resort. We chose the 50 amp "river view" but the only view was of other RV's. You have to walk to the river from these spots. Almost all river front spots have full timers in them. It's a half mile uphill to the dog park and pool. Everything is run down and falling apart. Our picnic table had bolts gone holding down the benches and was unusable. It felt so much like a low income trailer park that we left after the first day. They should check into getting activities planned, repairing the roads and falling apart Gazebo, offering better WIFI, and maybe cable and informing guests of whatever it is that makes this a resort because I left wondering this question. - Runluv

This is a nice park, right on the American River. Like others have said, it is hilly and the roads are gravel and narrow, but it is a rustic, natural setting. We did not stay on the lower level near the river. Although those sites have a nice view, we preferred to stay in E1, which is near the top, nestled in a corner of cottonwood trees that are interwoven with wild grape vines. A very nice and quiet setting, with neighbors only on the left. We stayed for three nights and found the camp personnel friendly and helpful. Although the campground was nearly full, we didn't feel crowded, and on Monday the place really cleared out. There is good access to the river a short walk away and a nice pool area. (we did not use the pool though) The sites were clean, fairly large and level, and did not require any leveling aids. The water was good with adequate pressure. Power was clean, but with a full park in the middle of August, the voltage understandably was a little on the low side (104v-110v). We ran the fridge and water heater on propane to reduce the risk of low voltage problems to the A/C, which worked out fine. Overall, a nice stay and we would stay here again. - JP-JP

This is a Thousand Trails park and as members it didn't cost us anything to stay (don't count yearly maintenance fees). Upon check in you need to present vehicle registrations and insurance. The check in clerk could have been more friendly but I assume he was having a bad day. After check in we went to "D" section as there is more room. The site has water and 30 amp power with a dump station near the restrooms. The sites are gravel as is the roads. The sites were not clean and the grass/weeds were in need of some serious mowing which they began the day we arrived. The picnic tables were horrible, enough said! Biggest complaint, RULES! No one follows them, no one to enforce them! Vehicles driving wrong way around lake, vehicles speeding above 5mph, dogs off leash, no one picking up dog waste, so on and so on! The park was quite full since this was just before Father's Day weekend. Bring mosquito spray as they are abundant. - Tracy Bounder

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

This is a good State Park. All trails are well maintained. The two campgrounds are clean. Lots of State workers around as well as campground hosts. We've been coming here in April each year for our "Check-Out" trip for the upcoming season. - MarBu

This campground is right next to the main road with lots of traffic. We could hear the traffic from our site. Our site was spacious and it was nice to have hook up, but the cost was rather high. We barely had enough room to extend our awning. We had a fire and watched TV on our outdoor TV but between the wind and traffic noise it wasn't very fun! The site was large and we could easily fit our car along side of us. Since it was October we didn't go over to the water but there was a trail from the campground and it didn't seem too far. - RVingChick

First off, use Beals Point SRA Campground in Google maps and it will bring you right in. Sites are nice, lots of trees and trails. Lots of air tv. Bring your quarters for the shower. We stayed here in 25 foot motorhome. Lots of space between. We would stay here again when visiting in area. - Maltese Mom

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

This is the best place to stay in the Roseville/ Citrus Heights area! The sites are VERY close together and 100 % gravel and FHU. There are no "extra" amenities. The fair grounds are currently building a new events center and consequently have reduced the number of sites to 9, so call ahead on the day of arrival to see if there is a spot. The manager on site is super helpful and accommodating. - bdbsenji

I was desperate for overnight parking as 4 other parks I called from Loomis to Sacramento were booked up. Placer County Fair Grounds made space for me as they were pretty booked as well. Most campsites were occupied by long term folks that were packed in like sardines. The camp host gave me a spot off to myself with electricity only which was a relief after seeing the sardine sites. I stayed by myself while my husband was on a trip and didn't feel comfortable there by myself. Ended up moving to our family's driveway the next day. Depending on what is going on at the fairgrounds could impact your visit. Some sort of races going on when I got there on a Saturday afternoon so it was loud...but was over by 7pm. Appreciated the camp hosts giving me a nice site but I just felt unsettled while there. - JeffDeb

First Fairgrounds experience and it is a good one. Made last-minute search for a place near Sacramento over Memorial Weekend. Got a number to call the host. He hooked us up with full 50amp hookups in the shade with lots of room to ourselves. Probably 20 campers over several acres. It was quiet except for several events Sat night. We walked to the car races, which were fun to watch. It quieted down after 11, which was fine. We could have gone to sleep earlier if that was our desire, not too loud. We will definitely stay here next time we're in the area. - Seb

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

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

Should have known after calling two days in advance and not getting a return call and a "mailbox full" message when calling back. The lady at desk is nice....but place is a wreck. The back in sites in the last street are a slum. Older trailers and motorhomes with "yard cars", window air conditioners propped up on 2x4 stands, some yards had junk strewn around and one was in "hoarder mode". Men's bathrooms were flooded from either toilets or showers. As someone noted its an old place....very old. I could go on and on but ...we were visiting relatives and wanted to stay close.....so little choice. Do yourself a favor stay anywhere but here. - Beachman

Stayed here 3 nights visiting relatives nearby. Wish there were more options for us to stay at in the area. The park is old, and lots of permanent residents. They are not a problem, as most sites are organized and kept clean. The management needs more people to improve service. The bathrooms are cleaned daily, but kids keep tracking muddy feet in the women's bathroom each day, and the men's bathroom seems to have a constant problem with people not putting the shower curtain in the shower, so there was water standing on the floor each day. A little re-modeling of the shower might solve this. Some moldy drywall was there as well due to the same problem. Office was closed for a while in the afternoon, and even though sign on the door said they would return at 2:00, they didn't return until 2:30, and kept new customers waiting 45 minutes (and me needing change for laundry). Would probably try another park if we return to the area. Pool was closed and green when we were there, but maybe off season. - Fitzjohnfan

We stayed here one night because it was only 4 miles from a truck service center we needed to be at the following morning. We would not stay here again. Train horns felt like they were on top of us. We couldn't get the men's restroom unlocked. The women's restroom had water backed up in the sinks. This is a permanent park, but we didn't have any issues with that. People we encountered in the office and elsewhere were friendly. Our site was a pull-thru at an end. It worked for us for one night. - Neil and JoAnn

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
