We were in the area unexpectedly because while we were camping in the Sierras we heard about the death and subsequent memorial service for an old friend. It was the 4th of July holiday weekend so everyone was booked solid. Tami (I think the manager) actually contacted me after saying that they were sorry for being full, because she realized that someone had left early -- and that we'd be able to have a place to stay for the night. Whew!
Because of the circumstances of the morning, we didn't arrive at the park until 1:30 in the afternoon -- and we had a 2 o'clock service. When the gentleman in charge for the weekend, Al, heard about this, he quickly showed me where our spot was and told me not to worry about all the formalities until we got back in the afternoon or the following morning, and we could settle up at that time.
Because of his generous, trusting, and understanding attitude, we were able to unhitch, get the electric plugged in for the fridge, and then make it to the service with about 4 minutes to spare.
I dare say that this type of service isn't that common anymore.
As previously stated in another review, this isn't necessarily the type of place you'd call a destination resort. But if you aren't needing high class amenities -- and you want a "home base" relatively close to both the state capitol and the historic gold country, this may work for you. We never had any issues with the 50 amp service...and that weekend was blazing hot.
Most of all, you can't beat the hospitality.

This park is not packed with the amenities that are the standard fare of the current crop of super RV parks. It's also not a glorified concrete parking lot with manicured patches of lawn and neatly trimmed trees. It's quaint and simple; one part rustic and two parts mom and pop. It's a bit of a throwback to another era. Many of the RV's parked here are clearly long term residents. If you're looking for lots of activities, this is not the place for you. If you're looking for a nice, quiet home base as you explore the region it may be just what you're looking for. My wife and I loved it.
