We actually didn't stay there. We were told by the Asst. Mgr. that it was first come first serve, no reservations. When we arrived the manager said they were full up. The manager was very nice and sorry about what we were told. Due to it being a gated park, we had to drive through to be let out the other side. Please note this park is not set up for large RV's even though the Asst. Mgr said it was. It is mostly filled with live ins and 1/2 the park is mobile homes. It is in a really bad neighborhood. - judyk

This place is ok, sort of. It's one of the few places around so, any port in the storm. It's in a bad part of town but they do have a security gate. Mostly permanent residents with what seems to be a bunch of illegals right outside the gate milling around waiting for the bus. The office staff was nice to us. Our site was gravel but it was level. Showers were old but clean. Wi-Fi was good, fast and never dropped out. Camp here if you have business in the immediate area - -otherwise I'd suggest that you find another spot. - Jake67

It was a pleasant surprise to find a park where we had adequate room to back into a space without fear of hitting anything. All hookups were in good condition. The Wi-Fi worked great. Spaces are rock with a concrete patio with table. It would be a little dusty for long term stays. Shade is only on long term sites. The people here were very nice. - The Alberts

This is a 55+ mobile home park that also rents RV sites. Very nice and quiet. Managers are very friendly though the site we were in was right up against the permanent mobile home next to us. If you like quiet, safe, reasonably priced ($175/wk), convenient location, this is the place to be. Downside, not much space for sitting out in front of RV. - DonnaandPete

We like funky parks, and this one rates high. It's a small park along the river (mosquitoes), and there is a small marina. The lower section which is usually designated for short term-ers, is closed, so we are in the upper section with mostly seasonal trailers. It's very quiet, there's a great viewing deck behind the office to watch the boats on the river. The sites are all in the grass, and are very un-level. But with a few leveling blocks under the rear tires and wood under our leveling jacks, all is wonderful. After reading the reviews we dumped before we arrived, so can't comment on the facilities. There is a $2.00 per day per dog fee. Wish they had pooper bags. - mac2school

Very happy to find Sherwood Harbor. Very rustic with lots of huge cottonwoods. If you want pristine perfectly spaced concrete sites, this is not for you. But to find a park in a metro area that is more about nature, its great. It had been raining and lots of puddles including some of the road sections are dirt. Designed for back ins with view of the river out the back, but they let us pull our 35 motor home directly in and use our extra cables/hoses. During the winter only the upper section is used as the lower can flood. However, I would NOT want to get our rig into the lower section. Access from the south on Chicory Loop (new name) into the upper section was not difficult but would have been impossible with anything in tow to the lower section - use north entrance for lower part. Follow their directions because of the new street names and a road or 2 closed (GPS likely to lead you there). But they are SO friendly, even offered to come and guide us in when we got lost! As others have said, excellent wifi by office and in site #1 where we stayed. Price includes all taxes, etc. - BandD

We could not maneuver our 40' motorhome into this park. The manager called us earlier in the day and because we were arriving late (8pm), instructed us to make a "quick right" into the park. We had never stayed here before and came in from Consumnes River Blvd. Big mistake. The road is narrow and dark with low hanging branches all along the way. The 'quick right' was virtually impossible. A woman ran out to meet us and told us to continue another half mile to turn around to enter from the north. Even after doing that, our 20 year RVing experience told us the steep entrance road was too risky especially at night. We opted to dry camp overnight at a nearby Home Depot. - billandmemakes3

Cal Expo is a great little RV spot if you're passing through Sacramento, visiting some family for a few days or attending an event (State Fair, Outdoor Expo, etc) at Cal Expo. It's not an RV resort, per se, but they did have a couple of nice dog areas, very close to the American River bike trail and close to big city amenities. If you are there for an event at Cal Expo like we were, you still need to Uber/ Lyft to the gates or over to Papa Murphy Field (Sac Republic, concerts, etc) as it would be a long, long walk. There are no shortcuts, unfortunately. Good power, wifi was pretty weak. Ask for a spot closer to the office so you're not in just a general large asphalt area, although our spot was HUGE! Price was good for 30amp, water & sewage, so we emptied our tanks before heading home. No fire ring, picnic table or any entertainment. This is not a place where you go to hang out for several days, but you get out and explore the area around it. Delivered as expected, so it's good. - Tgianco

This park is a little challenging to find but GPS will bring you to the fair grounds then you need to following the clearly marked road signs to the RV park. It is a basic park and could stand a little grass. There is an asphalt side and a gravel side. Seems like the larger units with tows are placed in the gravel. Sites are close and there is no scenery but it is close to downtown, shopping, the Capital, etc. and the sites are full hook up. The dog park is very nice with lots of grass. The people manning the office are very friendly and attentive. They run a good show. A security guard vehicle is very visible and roams the park from 9pm-6am. There is a nice bike/walking trail just outside the park gate. There are some homeless people living out there but they stay to themselves. They just disappeared the brush. Cyclists and runners made us feel quite safe. We would stay here again. - FT Travelers3

Definitely hard to find even with gps assistance. Signage could be better. Very basic park good for short stays. Staff friendly and helpful. For its size, Sacramento has a small town feel to it. The Capital grounds are very attractive. We would stay here again. - Roger H.

Big rig friendly with level sites. Easy on/off to highway. Laundry and bathrooms were good. WiFi was available only at the office. Large dog park with grass and bags was great. Cable was good and no problem with satellite. - Fulltimersrv

We stayed here for two weeks, preparing for a long trip. It is very central to Sacramento & has shopping nearby. We were the only ones not "long term" and it seemed like there were lots of working residents. It was one of the flattest spots we have ever had! We were parked near a very busy road, so rather noisy during the day but OK during the night hrs. Quiet in the park itself tho. Laundromat was good and reasonably priced. Park WiFi basically worthless and hardly ever worked. If you need a place close to downtown Sacramento, we can recommend this. Its not a place for a lovely vacation, but it worked for our purposes. - mazbarth

We came in for a short stay on a weekend with our 37 ft. 5th wheel and two small dogs. Knowing the park office was closed for the weekends, we called ahead and nice young lady took our info and explained the do-it-yourself check in system that was set up at the office. Upon arrival we noticed how close to town the park was and the level, paved aisle-ways of each row. Not a shred of grass in sight or a dog run, the pups would have to "ruff" it on the gravel rocks for a few days. The park itself was simple in its layout and live-in residents seemed friendly. Sights were level, easy alignment to back into, and RVs are parked on packed gravel with updated concrete patios. The traffic noise in the surrounding area was considerable but again, we were here on a weekend. This was a decent stop for a quick business trip. - RVLife4us

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

We have stayed here several times in the past and it was ok. This time it was run down and not well cared for. Our site was deep rutted dry mud with very little gravel seen in site. Space narrow and barely able to accommodate travel trailer with slides on one side only. Had to disconnect truck due to having to move trailer far enough forward to accommodate slides. Paid too much for this site! This will be the last time we will ever camp here again! Will stay at a nice RV park near Roseville that is much closer to our daughter. - obwiz

Reviewed this place before. On this trip I needed propane. Gal in office said to bring tank over to fill area. Wasn’t too excited about that since there isn’t a cart of some sort to take it back and forth. The guy that would be doing the fill was in the office and told me he would come and get it and bring it back when full. I really appreciated the extra service! - Woosch

Not the worst, but FAR from the best! The good sam rating is REALLY off... in my opinion anyway. It is NOT a 9 or 9.5 park... not by a longshot! This park is extremely run down and beat up. The "premium" sites are dirt sites. At one time these sites had gravel in them... but that was probably 5 or more years ago! The sites are full of potholes, very uneven, and mostly dirt mixed with gravel. Also do not be fooled by the photos which imply there is a water or river nearby. There is a trash filled, green slim, smelly, stagnant water near the park. The photos on their website must have been taken years ago. This feels like an inner-city park. Many of the RVs are old and have not moved in many years. Most importantly... the freeway is directly next to this park and it is VERY, VERY loud!! You have to shout to be heard when talking with people outside!! It is so loud it is difficult to sleep at night. (Perhaps city folk with not have a problem with this.) It also is extremely overpriced for what it is. I am shocked at how full it is given the quality and price. I hated staying at this park! However, there are some redeeming features... First, the staff was very friendly every time I spoke with them. They were polite, helpful, and seemed happy to work there. Secondly, there is a play area for children and perhaps families would find the park better than I as a business person. Third, there is an on-site food cart which will deliver. (I did not use it, so unable to rate quality.) Lastly, it is located near a large shopping area. So just about anything you need is within a few miles. (Again this was also a downside due to all the noise and traffic congestion.) I suggest you look at the google sat image of this park so you know what you are getting into. If noise, crowded spaces, rundown appearance, along with heavy traffic does not bother you, then you will probably be okay. - Oregon_Adventure

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

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

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
