River Rest Resort
Reviewed July 7, 2012

We have camped here for 53 years- through many ups and downs and many owners. The owner Don passed away a year and a half ago and the camp is now loud, with no noise ordinance enforced as Don used to. We had a horrible experience with the sole owner and were told we were not welcome back if we accepted a refund. I hope something happens soon, so we can enjoy this place on the river once again.

This place is fun for people of all ages. If your ride off road vehicles this is the place to bring them. Quiet time is always enforced, usually when there is a band people are told. If the people can't contain themselves they get booted. Don is always around for enforcement of the rules. He is one man so come tell him if someone is being too noisy or breaking rules and he will try to enforce them. As for the river its my favorite part of this place. If you want more privacy I suggest you book your reservations way in advance to get the best spots (#'s 5, 24, 25, 26, 30, 31, and 32). Or come towards the end of summer August, September. It's a fun place to let loose and relax.

We just spent a noisy, frustrating weekend camping at River Rest Resort camping ground in Washington, CA, on the Yuba River.

If you don't want the constant sound and gas pollution and dust of cross-country motorbikes (there's a rental place -- for kids and adults -- at one end of the site), don't go here. They are supposed to keep out of the main "road" of the camp, but the area they roar up and down is so close to the tents and the sound is constant. They even roar home late at night to their campsites and there's absolutely no one around to enforce rules.

If you don't like being slotted into one of a large number of identical, lined up, rectangular campsites completely exposed to neighbors close by on either side, no privacy at all, not enough trees, lots of dust, then don't go here. I know much more than I want to know about my neighbors' snoring patterns, how many bottles of wine one of them consumed and was mocked for by his wife, crying kids, etc. We had to try barricade ourselves with our cars and a clothesline in order to get any sense that we had our own little space.

The only good part of the campground is that it's on a beautiful part of the Yuba River and the swimming is great, but I'll look for a different beautiful part of the Yuba River next time.

And note to the owner: if you advertise "quiet time between 10pm and 8 am," then you need to delay your wife's birthday party (live band!) until after the school holidays are well over -- it doesn't make the disturbance okay for you to invite us to participate.
