I have reviewed this park before (a year ago) and what a huge improvement. Stayed here this past weekend for our annual White Water river rafting weekend with a huge group of friends and noticed big changes at this camp site. The previous hosts are gone and have been replaced by a very capable, efficient and friendly couple who are extremely customer service orientated and professional . They are visible all the time, making patrols around the camp site, reprimanding pet owners who do not pick up after their dogs and maintaining order in this beautiful place. The camp site was remarkably tidy and order prevailed this time round (no rowdy campers making noise till the early hours, no cussing , use of illegal drugs etc which occurred a year ago). The county of Yolo has now built a check-in office and a shop where one can get fire wood and ice. This is a nice useful addition to the camp site. There are also plenty of recycle bins. The sites are lovely with green lawns and many trees for shade. The river was especially welcome with temps in the 100's . The river's level was quite a bit higher and this made today's white water rafting even more fun than usual. I have given this camp site a 9 this time around after all the improvements. If it had sites with partial /full hook ups it would score a round 10. Well worth it. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Camped here for the first time for 3 nights. It is the closest Camp ground to where the Cache Canyon River Rafting and another white water rafting companies are located. (The purpose of my trip). You basically arrive and drive directly to the camp site that you have booked via Email/ telephone with a women at Yolo County offices.The camp host then comes to sign you in and give you a receipt. There was no one posted at the gate and I get the feeling that many people come for the day and do not pay at all. The camp site itself is located in a beautiful area off Highway 16, just 6 miles west of Rumsey, CA. The Cache Creek casino and resort is not that far away either. The location is gorgeous and the camp site has many nice trees and lots of shade. There are NO hookups at this campsite so dry camping is the order of the day. There are many taps available to fill up your fresh water tanks though and a good dump station nearby (oddly located in the middle of the camp site though). I did not see any showers in the rest rooms and the rest rooms looked like they needed to be cleaned more regularly. I was at the campsite during a very busy summer weekend and the camp site was full so it stands to reason that the rest rooms would get dirty quickly. It also came to my attention that there is only one camp host for this whole camp site (quite a responsibility actually). A sign is posted advertising for another Camp host so this might be you! As for the camp host (and his female significant other), they were pleasant enough on the first day I arrived , however on day two the host's wife/ significant other appeared severely intoxicated while riding along with her man on the golf cart. This is worrisome as camp hosts have the responsibility of ensuring that the camp runs smoothly and maintain order when people get out of line. As as feared, there was very little oversight of the camp site by the camp hosts. Unfortunately the Friday and Saturday nights and afternoons were both marred by noisy, obnoxious camping groups who drank alcohol non stop and smoked pot openly in front of their children. The foul language and cussing was very unpleasant as well, and showed a lack of any culture of these individuals. The river is at the bottom of the camp site and there is a small "beach" however this was pretty full over the weekend. If I camp here again, it will be during the week when the camp site is peaceful or I will book sites that are tucked away from the crowds (sites 38, 40 and 42 are good choices). I give this camp site a 7 because of poor/ no host oversight and host inebriation, dirty restrooms and a dump station in the middle of the camp ground. As far as natural beauty though, it would score a 10. Not that far from the Bay area either and the white water rafting is a great fun activity for the whole family or a group of friends.
