2 1/2 Stars for Evergreen RV Park
We stayed here in our 5th wheel the weekend of June 16th, 2012, with great trepidation. Having read some dreadful reviews of this park on line, I called and talked to the manager. She admitted that they had some problems in the past but things were better now and she hoped we would give them a chance. We could find no other park with vacancies near our destination, so I made the reservation and told manager Sherry that I would love to write a good review for them, if we have a good stay in their park, to offset some of the negative ones I read.
So, here is the review: first off, this is NOT "California camping at it's very best" as their website claims. That is quite an overstatement. My major complaint was the number of cars on the street, making it close to impossible to back our 5th wheel into the spot. There just simply is nowhere for them to park except along the narrow streets. I hate when, after a long day on the road, it turns into an ordeal trying to park our RV. Our 5th wheel is fairly small and my husband has become an expert at backing and parking and that is the only reason we were able to get into our space without rousting up the neighbors and getting them to move their vehicles. Second, all the spaces are angled the wrong direction, so you have to go the wrong way down the one-way streets in order to get positioned to back in. The park is older and many of the rigs are older and appear to be permanent residents. Some of the concrete is crumbling here and there but the manager's husband was mixing and repairing concrete when we arrived. It seemed to be a piecemeal effort, but it does appear they are trying to fix up the park.
The good points were: I did not feel unsafe, it was fairly quiet and the area was relatively clean, our neighbors were friendly, and all the hook-ups worked, so our two night stay was certainly not a miserable experience. For the price, $44 a night, we feel we got what we paid for and we might stay there again on our way through Oxnard, if we are able to reserve a space in an area near the front of the park which is much less congested. If not, we will try to find another location. I give them 2 1/2 stars out of five.
