We stayed in this park for one night on very short notice. We were fortunate and got a site with electric and water hookup. We found it very quiet, pleasant and enjoyable. It is on the Sacramento delta and the area is known for being windy. Be forewarned; awnings and other external equipment will be put to the test. There is no store on the site, but the town of Rio Vista is just 3 miles to the north and has supermarkets with just about everything you could need. They do have boat launching ramps and the fishing on the delta seems pretty good. We'd camp here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Good place to go off season. Hook-up sites are very few and can be windy in the early spring and fall, but the park has built a berm around the trailer sites, so it helps. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The hookup 12 sites are crammed together, but with water, electric (30/50), picnic table and fire ring. The sites are very close together, so you can hear and see your neighbors business. We wanted to sit and enjoy the campfire at night but had to listen to our neighbor's music and fights; we finally went inside. It was not too crowded in the off season; could not imagine when it's full. The non-hookup sites are spacious so might be more pleasant. Access to the river/slough is fenced off in most places. Most folks were here for fishing or boating. We'll come back but only in the winter when quiet. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I went for the AWA ride back in June. Cool during the day, cold and very very windy at night. Ice Cold (Pay with quarters)showers. River water was warmer, not kidding. No ranger at night, so if you don't like to party all night, don't stay here. We camped here in a Tent.

We checked in on the 5th of July and had booked one of the more expensive sites that had both electrical and water. The significant problem was that these sites are small should only be used for trailers and motor homes. Unfortunately the Rangers allowed tent campers to use these sites and created a very messy situation. All of the tent campers spilled over into adjacent sites and made for a stressful trip. The park itself is sprawling and spacious. There is a large boat ramp and swimming area, though there is little access to the delta along the shore line due to it being fenced off. If I go again it would only be in off season times and would opt for a regular camping site as opposed to the more expensive sights with the water and electrical hookups. We camped here in a Motorhome.

This is an attractive public campground set along the Sacramento River Delta. It is has a large boat ramp and docks for those who like to boat and/or fish. We enjoyed walking along the many trails that meander through the park. There is a dump station available. I don't remember if there were any pull-through sites, but we had no trouble getting our 32' Class A into a back-in spot. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Not a big rig friendly park. Very few 50 amp sites. Hard to set jacks in uneven grass with ruts. Cold pool not covered a night. They had good activities for Memorial day. Would not go back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice RV park and marina plus an expensive place to eat. I give a moderate rating because it was very noisy when we were there, jack hammers, un-muffled leaf blowers, pile drivers next door, a sea weed harvester ran for two days, garbage trucks, food delivery trucks. Lot of traffic for being miles from highway 12. Wi-Fi worked two days out of four. The water, electricity, sewer hookups were at the front of the motorhome so most rigs should plan on having extension cords and sewer extensions of 25 ft or so. The view of the river is really nice and there is a fishing platform out over the water for fishing by RVers. I'd go again just for the view. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We love this park with its pull-in sites right on the river. The waterfront sites have been reconfigured for motorhomes up to 38 feet with slides. Very good restaurant on site, and the park is easy walking distance to downtown Rio Vista. Very friendly staff, and clean restroom and showers. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Water Front sites are only for trailers or motor homes 8ftx30ft or less and no slide-out. In the office you can use the computer for (free) to check your e-mail. Very nice park and the people who run it were great. Will be going back soon. We camped here in a camper.
This is a well maintained park. It is definitely fishing orientated. There are a number of fishing piers into the river. The sites are level but a little narrow. The manager and staff are friendly and helpful. If there were public restrooms and showers we could not find them. The only problem was the wind. This must be a permanent problem since there are many wind turbines across the river. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We came with a group, and this place accommodated us well. We gathered for meals in the large community room and for lawn chair conversations we were under large shade trees in a greenbelt between our sites and the river. If you have a 5ver with a big window and lounge in the back get a river site and love the view. Sites were level, but a bit tight. Power is being upgraded all around. Wifi was great. Downsides: lots and lots of WIND and highway noise. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice place for a fishing RV'est. Has small docks that over look the river. Smallish sites if you have slides on both side. Power can be iffy ( low ) Use your meters to be sure. Highway noise at all hours. The park is kept clean. Has many full time residents and it looks this way. (a storage problem we all have) We camped here in a Motorhome.
The rate includes our small boat being docked. This is a pretty nice park/location as the Delta goes. I probably would not come here unless you had another reason to be on this area of the Delta. Gravel sites with good shade and large, mature trees. The sites on either side of us were open, but if they were occupied, there wouldn't have been a lot of room. It gets very windy even though the sites are lower than the levee. The road in is a very narrow levee road. The entrance to the road closer to the Antioch Bridge has a very steep narrow turn. The road coming in from near the Sherman/Brannan Island drawbridge is better. The owners were very helpful and friendly. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park has seen better days, but it appears that the current operators are working at restoring it. There are new restrooms and a small laundry as evidence of this. The biggest attribute this park has is its proximity to the Bay Area. It's about 20 minutes to the Pittsburg/Bay Point BART station where you can be in downtown SF in less than an hour. The driveway entry is very steep, but also quite short. The worst thing about this park is the road leading to it. The road turnoff is about 3 miles from the park. The road is built on old dikes and the pavement condition is terrible and you can't really travel it faster than about 10 MPH. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nicely designed park, and is an excellent park if you know what to expect. The windmills across the river are there for a reason; it is very windy nearly all the time. You have to pay for the internet, and it is usually quite slow and unpredictable. The last 2 miles of road are very narrow and bumpy. To go into the city of Antioch, just south, there is a $5 toll on the bridge. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park is not on the beaten path. Narrow levee road that you need to drive slow on to get to park. People are really nice, owners live on site and are actively involved in care of park. Interior roads and pads are all interlocking paving bricks that are really nice. Spots spacious. Have stayed twice this year and will go back. The few cons are: no laundry, no cable. Rio Vista is 11 miles away. Oakley is closer but requires using the toll bridge to get back to camp. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I echo the other comments that this is a very nice park. It is right "next" to the water, but you can't see the water from your campsite because there is a 15' tall levee bank between you and the water. We stayed with 9 other rigs and had use of the largest cabana structure, which was wonderful. It had lights and heat and totally kept us out of the wind. This is a great place for a family reunion, or other group of rigs, so long as you can entertain yourselves on-site because there isn't a lot else nearby unless you are interested in fishing or wind-surfing. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
There is a lot to like about this park. The layout is big rig friendly, and the owners are a delight. The hookups are in excellent working order, and sensibly arranged. The bathroom/shower is private, and very clean. There is a slot to pay for showers, but they are free, save your quarters. There is no laundry. Now for the downsides: the wind makes sitting outside to eat impossible, and don't even think about opening your awning. They changed internet provider during our stay, it is now $3 a day. Too pricey for an erratic signal. We had a decent Verizon signal for cell and aircard. The road to the park is not good, narrow and rough, just go slow. The location for visiting family nearby was perfect, and we took the BART into San Francisco. The rate is based on a weekly stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a beautiful RV park on the Sacramento River. Probably one of the nicest parks I've ever stayed in. The owners developed it with big rigs in mind. And they welcome large groups and even have "party tents" available for free if you have 3 more more rigs in your group. The bathrooms were spotless. The wi-fi was good and reasonably priced. No cable hookup, but you could get quite a few channels with the RV antenna. Yes, it can get windy - there was a huge storm when I was there, but it was kind of fun. It is family friendly although there isn't a playground for the kids which is unfortunate. There is a basketball hoop and a soccer net with balls, horseshoes, bocci. All in all, a gorgeous RV park on the Delta, and I will go back again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This RV park by far was the cleanest and quietest that I have ever been to, also the windiest. It is very impressive and the staff was nice. Coming into the park, we checked in and went to our site. The site was huge! Extremely impressive. The staff did not say if they had Wi-Fi so we didn't know, so I suggest that you ask prior to going to your site. I saw a satellite dish near the registration cabin (so they might have Wi-Fi). The bathroom were the cleanest of any park that I have been too. The hospitality tents are the way to go (if you have three RV's in your group you might be able to get one) since the wind is extremely bad at night (30-40 mph). This park is not for children though. No play structures or swimming pool. My children were playing (10 and 12 year old) with some other kids in the park in the open area, were not that close to other travel trailers and still in the open area, when the owner came to our site and told us to have the children play nearer to our campsite. It was only 6pm! So you might want to think about what type of activities the kids can do while here. That's the only downfall, other than that the place was AWESOME. I would go back again, but due to lack of children activities, and the wind, I might decided to go elsewhere. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
On this sunny winter weekend, this place couldn't be beat! It's spacious, level, clean, quiet and not windy. The owners are very friendly, professional and have put their hearts into this special park. The narrow road makes the last couple of miles a little adventurous. Google Maps says the park is three miles down the road, but it's only two! We arrived in the dark, missed the entrance and had to drive another 1.5 miles to the county park to turn around. Signage could be better. We camped here in a Motorhome.
"Rio Viento" means "Wind River", and there is a reason that this park is a favorite for windsurfers and kitesurfers. There is a huge power-generating windmill adjacent to the park. The park is below the levee, which provides some wind shelter, but it blew continuously during our two-day stay. The park looks new, even though it is five years old. Sites are huge, level back-ins, made of brick, with wide interior roads. Excellent quality 20/30/50 amp power. I didn't find a laundry in the park, and the nearest one is almost certainly miles away on the other side of the $4 toll bridge to Antioch. The bathrooms were modern, immaculate, tasteful individual suites, with showers. The road to the park is a mile or two of fairly narrow levee road, but any size rig can negotiate it. We got the "introductory rate" of $30. I assume that's because it was our first stay here (their posted rate is $40/day). We really enjoyed watching the windsurfers right across the road from the park and the kitesurfers about a mile down the road. Although the address is Rio Vista, it's really closer to Antioch. We camped here in a Motorhome.
What a fantastic park! The park is immaculate in its cleanliness. The managers are friendly, informative and very professional. The park is on the Sacramento River and offers great views of Mt Diablo. Sunsets are amazing. The sites are very wide and bricked with grass areas. Utilities are top notch. The only down-side of the park is the wind. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This has to be the best RV park we have ever stayed at. The people were great the sites were clean and level. The area was peaceful. Can be tough to find but a gem when you do. Next to the river for fishers. Near enough to the Antioch to visit family, secluded enough to feel like you are far away. Forces you to be quiet and still. We needed to get away from the big city hustle. I can't wait for the next opportunity to get back there. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Back side of the levee on Sherman Island. 1.8 mile levee walk to a public boat launch. Lots of Sacramento river fishing just yards from your site. Windsurfing, as it is very windy, typical delta. We had a rally here with 34 rigs; everyone enjoyed it, no one had any access issues. The park is paved with 650,000 paver bricks, all level. The club room is a large metal building, very nice, with propane heaters (you supply the propane). All tent patio rooms come with BBQ's (again you supply the propane) and utensils. Very quiet day and night, no traffic, miles from town. The on site manager was awesome, as was the owners dog, Sugar. The pictures on the website are accurate and barely do it justice. This is such a nice place I really should not tell you about it. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The rate reflects a senior discount, with a normal rate of $30. This is a county park very close to the small town of Rio Vista. It is in a pleasant setting along the Sacramento River. There are a few sites with views of the river and most without views of the river. We had a site with river views, which was nice. We did not have any problem with the power as reported by another reviewer. The sites were power and water without any problem. It is true that it is windy there, even in February. There is a short bike/road path that will take you to the bridge across the river. Our Verizon cell and data worked well there. There are few tress so satellite was not a problem. The reason that it does not get a higher rating is because of the partying at night from the locals. We were next to the boat area. The first night there, the locals started doing "donuts" in the parking lot at about dark. The party went on until 3 in the morning. We called the local law enforcement, but it had no effect. We talked to the local "ranger" and he said that is what happens since layoffs meant there was no presence at night. He seemed not to care. The camp host was new and had no input. The next night the party went on, so we left. Too bad that a nice park could be ruined by lack of law enforcement. If we were to stay here again, we would park away from the day use area and the parties. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a really nice location, along the Sacramento River. Many sites have a view of the river. Bathrooms are spartan but have hot water. Our biggest complaint, and this is in the winter, is that the power is not adequate for our 40' rig. Waking up this morning, admittedly, the temp outside was 34F, the input power to our rig was 110V. That doesn't leave any power for microwave use, much less heat pump or electric water heat (which we didn't use) and the inside voltage ranges from 108V to 109V with this computer, a refrig and a couple lights running. Went to 102V a couple times and we lost power once for overload. We stayed a week in winter with only 1 or 2 other rigs in the park. The park is at the end of the Rio Vista city power run about a mile out of town. It is quiet, neat, clean, patrolled by a ranger, and otherwise a pleasant place to stay. Just can't imagine that the power even works if it was full and cold outside. If you have very modest power needs, this is a great county park. $18 is senior rate, otherwise it is $30 per night. Boat launch is next to park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A lovely park on the bank of the Delta in Rio Vista, CA. Well maintained. I walked along the edge of the water for a ways and enjoyed the sunset. A friendly ranger and host greeted me. It's a bit hard to find. You must wind through the town. I'm going back on my way south this winter. No wind. We camped here in a Motorhome.
To correct two errors. There is a dump, its on the way in/out on the river side of the road by the yellow/orange dumpster. Its not marked at all. And, the showers do not take quarters, they're free. I just camped here for 6 days and it was real quiet and not windy at all. Spring and Fall tend to not have as much wind (or "Delta Breeze) as the summer does. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice spot but extremely windy. Sites are bit tight and less than level. We found ourselves challenged to find the right spot in our site between trees and the road. Connections on the right side are a bit awkward. No sewer connections or even a dump station. So, we actually used the showers, which were fine and didn't cost anything. Place seemed very well patrolled. (Did we mention that it was very windy?) We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice county park in the cute, little river-front town of Rio Vista. Sites are all paved and pull-through. Most are slightly sloped and require some leveling blocks. The hookups are on the passenger side and you need to run hoses and wires under your coach. Nice, spacious grassy sites with sandy soil (hence the park name); many with covered dining canopies. Fishing and boating in the adjacent Sacramento River. Boat launch in park. Park rangers patrol frequently during the day, but not much at night. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great place for a quick Sacramento or Bay Area California Delta getaway weekend / weekday. Can be “very” windy during the summer months. The Spring and Fall are far better windless months. Be aware of teenager using this park after hours as a lovers lane (harmless). They do not gate off the camping area from the other areas. There is always a park host. Some are better then others. Firewood is always available at 6 bucks a bundle. The bathroom were redone in late 05 and are very well kept. The shower will cost ya a few coins but the hot water keeps coming. Understand that there is a sand quarry above and behind this area that operates M-F and can create some noise and dust during windy days. If you fish you’ll love the boat launch and large boat trailer parking. A great place to hang out, pour an afternoon cocktail and play dominos with your better half while enjoying the minimalist landscapes the Delta is famous for. Not many places as easy going as this. The town of Rio Vista has some rather charming shops. The restaurants can be what I like to call consistently inconsistent. One day great and the next is just so so. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Just south of Rio Vista on the Sacramento River. All sites pull through. Large sites not bunched up. Some with view of river. $7 extra per car. Day use area attached, as well as boat launch. Ranger patrolled. 30 amp only. Fire pits. Quiet. Worth a stop, though it isn't a resort. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped in a site on the slough, which was nice. Hook-ups all worked fine. There is no TV cable. We came onto the island by the bridge, did not use the ferry. Using GPS, we had no trouble finding this park. My only complaint is that the bathrooms were not cleaned during our stay: ladies' hair was all over in the shower. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is right on the river. The suckers on the trees and bushes need to be cut back so you can see the river better. Our camp sight was not real clean. I noticed after everyone pulled out on Sunday they didn't clean them before a new camper arrived. Our fire pit had trash in it, and we would have had to clean it before using it. I told them over the phone we had a pull trailer that we would back in. We wanted to stay an additional night so they moved us to another sight. It was a pull in and not a back in. We had to step over the hoses when we wanted to look at the river being careful not to trip on them. We got lost using the bridge and so did a lot of other people that were there. We had to use our GPS to find it. We used the ferry to leave which was easy. Just make sure it is full tide. There is nothing on the island so bring everything. They sell their ice for $4.88 which I felt was high. It is quiet; the camp sites are long and have some trees. Over all we liked it. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We camped here in March 2005 in our 40' Class A. Be sure to email for directions as we got lost for well over an hour on our way there and directions on website seem specific but are overly complicated. After speaking with fellow campers we weren't the only ones that got lost! Staff was very friendly, overall an absolute gem of a campground once you find it! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Resort is located on an island in the heart of the California delta. Access to the island is via a bridge on the north, or ferries on the sount and east side of the island. Check with the resort for tide information if you plan on using the ferry. This is a great site if you like to mix boating with your camping. RV sites include boat dock space. Waterfront sites are roomy and provide nice vistas. Rental cottages are also available. Resort can be quite crowded on holiday weekends. On-site store is small and nearest grocery store and restaurants are miles away. We camped here in a camper.
