We just spent 3 nights in a elite site (#688) and overall had a really enjoyable time. The grounds are beautiful, well maintained and very green! The sites are ok, some are definitely better than others with nice big shade trees and the way they are facing to avoid the sun in the late afternoon and the sites located down the small side streets could pose a challenge to back into.
Just like the other reviews, the noise from the trains and the freeway is very loud. The premium and deluxe sites get the brunt of it, and even though the elite and platinum sites are on the other end of the park, you still hear the noise. I would suggest getting a good pair of earplugs!
We went to the happy hour on Friday night where they had wine, beer and margaritas. There was no food left by the time we arrived, so if your planning on eating, get there as soon as it starts!
We also went to both pools, and the big pool is very nice. Lounge chairs and even cabanas available first come.
The best fitness/gym center I have been to in a RV park. Cardio equipment, machine and free weights and also they have small towels and ice water!
This park would be fantastic if it wasn't for the noise. But worth a visit for sure!
