We've stayed there 5 times in the past. Our kids love the river. But this time no store anymore, the sites don't get cleaned, and the managers walk right through your site if they want. I spent our stay picking up cigarette butts and water bottle caps. The trash cans are right there which is nice, but they need to dump them every day in the summers heat. They charged for a RV park and we got county park kind of service. Waited in line for an hour to dump. They don't offer the pumping service the use to. I was also told that our 1994 diesel pusher was too old after I had made reservations well in advance. Said we could stay just this once. Saw a class c motor home just as old in there. Probably the managers rig. Don't stay there! Go to River Bend RV Resort in Forestville if the river is what you want or the KOA in Cloverdale.

Adequate facility. Our spot was very level and the campers were quiet. Good location for visiting wineries around Healdsburg. We were warned the showers had no hot water and this was true. Restrooms were OK. Only a few spots have shade, so keep this in mind when booking in summer.

This is in a perfect location and deserves a better owner. The people I interacted with didn't seem to care much at all about anything except collecting the rent. The only person that cared was the maintenance guy and he was working double time just to keep he place from falling apart. Most RV parks have nice check in brochures, showing you where to park, wherre the rest rooms are the wifi etc etc - and here they have a half a page of copied material with no real pointers to anything ot do in Healdsburg. The town is only about 4 miles away and is a great little place to hang out. First the title. THis place with the right owner could be a 5 star russian river resort RV park. Right now it is barely a 2 star falling apart rv of last resort park. The location is perfect on a bend of th russian river. Just far enough outside of town to be rural. THe hiay goes by and there is no effort at noise abatement - a small planting of trees etc would go a long way to help that . Grounds, are mostly dirt some grass and lots of beautiful trees. Its spectacular. They also have tent sites but they look like the day after woodstock. Pretty barren areas no shelter and no crowd control. The first site they gave us #52 had no working electricity- I mean come on! the breaker was so old it had no more strength in its spring and tripped instantly. OK try the next site over - same deal. So we played "guess where the electricity is" because no one in the office seemed to care at all and couldn't be bothered to do anything except call the maintenance guy who seemed surprised that the electricity didn't work. The fact that this place doesn't keep a supply of 30 AMP breakers around tells me a lot - its one of the most common things to break because of constant turning on and off with everyone coming and going. He mentioned that he would have to go into town tomorrow and get a breaker - ok so the ownership has poopr planning skills and town is 5 minutes away and we were paying customers so why not bust a move and get one now? OK in playing musical breakers we found one that worked- still in a nice shady area (site 32) only it was close to the freeway and noise. Fine we wer her one night so grin and bear it. NExt i looked on the sheet for the wifi information and there wasnt any information. I called the office and whoever answered must have just moved here from mars. I asked about the wifi information and she said "wi fi?" I said yes. She said "we have some". I said " Ok I want to use it" She said "ok go ahead". I said what is the information for the wi fi?" She says "Information"? I said ( i was being a saint i promise) "Yes what is the wifi name and password" She said "I don't know" " I said you offer free wifi" she says "yes". I said "ok how abouit some free wifi" She said "OK" (Kind of makes you want to practice post birth birth control} -- I thought i was trapped in an abbot and costello routine. I finally said what is the name of the wifi and the password for actually usi9ng the wifi". She says "its something like avcamp or something and II don't think it has a password." I said "well don't you use it? She said No we use the one at the office". I sid 'Ok give me the name of that and the password" She said " oh i cant do that ". At that point I strangled the phone ( I go through a lot of phones with people like this) and then just turned on the computer found one of two choices and tired it. Fine it didn't have a password but then again it didn't work either . I decided i didn't want to go through a another phone call like that complaining about non working wifi because i keep running out of phones when I do- so I simply used up my minutes on MIFI which always works but is price in terms of data minutes. I got done what needed to be done, and noticed that there wee good number of permanent RV residents or long term ones all mixed in with day use. Typically the rv parks keep them separate for good reason. The long term ones have STUFF scattered all about thier site and its genrally a messy situation in many instances. It was the same here. Also the resident was given the BEST site that I could see ( level, lots of shade, very big) and typically tha is a good way to lose money on an RV park. Save the best sites for the in and outs at higher per diem . Well enough management 101 - think you get the picture. The place is barely ok except for location, the bathrooms have no grab bars anywhere, and the toilets look like they have been scoured with sand paper - a dull gray icky color. Some one plesae buy this place and put about $150K into it to make this the resort it was always meant to be.

Pulled in for one night and as it was October the park was less than half full. Office seems to shut late afternoon and manager seemed anxious to leave when we were checking in. No full hookup and sani station was very tricky. Sites are varied in size and are basically a place to place your rig and nondescript. River area is scenic and it was nice to walk down to the swimming area but can imagine it gets very crowded and noisy during the busiest season. Shower was resembled a portable outhouse! yikes talk about claustrophobic cubicle. Priciest place we had stayed in past 3 weeks.

We had sites H-1 through H-4. At first we did feel there were a bit exposed, right on the main road that every camper/RV'er has to drive down to get to their site. Bonus was the shade in the day and, honestly, once you get set up, the fire's going and drinks are flowing - who cares. You're outdoors, you're camping, all good. But at first glance - definitely not top choice. If you can get the sites far to the left of the shop... guessing it's H-5 through H-8 or something. The higher H's are better. Bathrooms were all good - your typical camping bathrooms. If you're used to backpacking and, in general, more rough camping experiences ANY bathroom is a dream come true. Especially, right by the store are newer bathrooms, but they were oddly closed half of the day and open the other half? But, whatever. The always-open-bathrooms were all good. Showers were great, too - especially after the day on the river, but get there early, even check the doors if they're open before the signs say they should be. We snuck in early, no line and it was glorious. ONLY major complaint was the store and the folks running it. Not very pleasant or helpful. They couldn't answer basic questions about the river and the area, which I thought was odd. Also, the grill situation there isn't great. Definitely bring your own charcoal grill, or bring something to put on top of the grills they have at the sites. You only get HALF of a fire-pit to cook food on... 4 hamburgers can fit on it at a time... maybe. So, if you're cooking for 20 (like we were), bring your own gear. Last thing. The ground is very hard. If your tent requires stakes (like one of mine does) be sure you have a hammer.
