Great park thus far! 4 days in and have zero complaints. Perfect location for me between work and everything else. Wish you could stay longer than 30days is my only wish. Other than that it's cool!
This park is in center of Sac., which makes it very convenient to anything around Sac. Be aware it is at the CA state fairgrounds, no amenities, small laundry: 4 washers & dryers but only one washer working for our stay! WiFi pretty good, but not reliable. Good for location, 50 amp & full hook ups!
Stayed at this park for 9 nights. First night out bike was stolen from the back of the motor home and the cable lock was cut. Called CALEXPO PD and they informed us it was not common this happened although they thought it was slowing down. Charged me $15.00 to issue a report for my insurance. They patrol the area but obviously not very effective. No video surveillance although there are signs posted stating there is
Great for Rally
We stayed here for 5 days with a Rexhall club Rally.
Good meeting room, close to restaurants,stores, not far from Old Sacramento. Spaces needed blocks to level coach. 2 dog walk areas.
Big Gravel Lot in an Ideal Location
Cal Expo is nicely situated if you need access to downtown Sacramento or the surrounding areas. For our purposes (purging our storage unit once and for all) - the location could not have been any better.
There are two sections to the park - the very unlevel paved parking lot when you first enter the park, and then the more level gravel lot 'out back'. We were assigned a spot right in the middle of the big gravel lot for our 2-week stay.
The sites are a tad on the small size, but considering this an RV Park designed to accommodate the fairgrounds - spaciousness wasn't the top concern. The sites in the gravel lot of plenty long however, as they are designed for double parking for larger events.
What perplexed us was that the park wasn't at more than 25% capacity on any given day we were there. But yet, they constantly bunched folks up instead of spacing them out to give everyone more breathing room. For a while, we had neighbors so close we could hear their TV, and their dogs constantly started barking anytime they heard us move nextdoor. In retrospect, we would have asked to move to one of the many back-in spots along the perimeter instead - they seemed to keep those fairly well spaced out.
There's lots right near by - a mall, dining, shopping, post office, etc. Nothing really right in walking distance, nor did we feel comfortable walking around the surrounding areas - a good bit of traffic, and many folks living on the streets nearby.
The biking trail does have an access point right outside the park's entrance, which was nice for a quick watch. You can even get up on the levy from there and watch the horse races next door.
If you're looking for a quiet relaxing spot - this isn't for you. There's constant loud activity at the fairgrounds next door and the lights in the lot are very bright. But if you're just looking for a place to park in town with full hook-ups - it's a pretty good deal.
The WiFi was pretty stable the entire time we were there, and quite usable going through our WiFiRanger extender. AT&T and Verizon both had strong LTE signals too.
The rate reflects the weekly rate we paid at $195/week.
We have stayed many times. It has all of the necessities, but is pretty basic. Wifi is still an issue in the back lot. We will continue to stay here when in the area
About what you would expect. A parking lot next to Cal Expo. Hook ups for every spot (power, water, sewer) and bathrooms and shower. Few trees and no grass, but Cal Expo is right next door. Hot in the summer and hopefully you can get a sop with a tree for shade.
Cat lovers paradise
On our way to Marysville to visit my dad and step mom we stopped at Cal Expo RV Park in Sacramento. A unique spot. Near an and all Sacramento attractions.
Staff - Nice and friendly folks. Trees surround park, but inside park it feels more like a parking lot. Very bright street lights shine into your rig.
We paid $35 a night for full hook-ups, pull-through site.
Bathrooms were clean and secure, but you have to leave a $10 cash deposit for key.
Site was Long enough and wide enough to park your toadie next to you. Didn't see much to do in the park, but our boys loved the petting the dozen or so ferile cats living at the park.
A well-kept park. Laundry, exchange library, small store. Clean place to stay if you like cats. Bring your sleep masks for the bright lights.
