Extremely Rude Owner
We have stayed at this park many times. The staff have been friendly in the past. It has nice and clean facilities. Now on to our last visit. For the past three years our group of friends of 4 to 6 families have stayed there for the Rib Cook Off. We booked 6 months in advance and asked that out RV's are close together. This year we have 4 RV's in our group. All of our friends are right next together...except us. We are put on the other side of the park. Our families do pot lucks together so now we have to drive all of our food down to the other campsites. Frustrating but we decided we will make do. On the last day as we are leaving I want to communicate my situation and frustration. Now understand I ask to speak to the manager and I am calm and respectful. I am not looking for a refund or discount, just someone to say "I'm sorry and we will try better next year." Halfway through the conversation with the manager the owner comes up and very rudely starts to interject how they cannot guarantee our spots to be close together. Again we booked our trip 6 months in advance and they can't get me close to our group? No one says I'm sorry they blame it on a past employee that took our reservation. I could not believe how unprofessional and disrespectful the owner was to a frequent customer that stays on average once a month. I am a business owner myself and if I treated my customers the way I was treated I would soon be out of business. I will never return.
If you want nice this is it~Modern RV Park
Most recent stay was 05-12-2016 (I’m late on my reviews) We camp in a "Tear Drop” style RV only 15' long w/o toilet or shower ~ plus we like to eat outdoors using the picnic table & set up our dining fly for sun/ weather protection so we rely on condition of campgrounds facilities being nearby our site ~ so our critique is focused in that area.
We did get close to restroom/shower roomy very clean and modern w/full on tiled walls and floors w/secure private stalls and changing area. Lots of hooks for stuff, padded bench folds against wall in changing area. Good water pressure and hot. High ratings well deserved for modern restrooms & facilities, paved roadways, and all level paved sites which do not crowd your neighbor. Large pull through spaces, nice LEVEL picnic table with metal plate on 1 end for camp stove
CONS – did not like Astro turf could not set up out dining canopy over table. Sewer connect w/concrete surround encroaches neighbor site Definitely a Big Rig park, but ok for little rig overnight stay and not suitable for tents. Wish they had rubber floor mats as you exit shower + shelves in changing area and hooks/ shelves at sink/vanity area
The fenced dog area was very nice. WiFi worked just fine. Stayed overnight very comfortable.
Almost a 5-Star
Only 4 stars because of the non-pull thru sites. Pull thru sites are $5 more per day and I don't mind backing my 33' Class A in. But.... trees too close to the pad prevent awning use, and shrubbery on driver's side are so close to the pad that they impede opening the basement doors. Looks nice, but not convenient for RV's :-( Nice park, minutes from Reno. Sparks Marina is really nice for running, walking, kayaking, swimming, etc. Great park, but very pricey - even for back in sites. $450 for 2 weeks ($32/day) was the 14 day discount! I'll probably look around for something else next time.
A fantastic park to stay in. This is our second time. A bit expensive but give GS discount.
Good Park in Sparks/Reno area
Nice park, lots of rules they do not enforce, a little loud in back of RV park near car wash.
Hot August Nights
Really nice park, Staff is really nice and friendly. Highly recommend to stay there.Our M/H had a problem with the Hydralic jack System that extended our stay by one day. The park recommended Alpine Mobile. He does nice work but watch him closely because he will try to sell you everything you don't need. He claimed my battery was no good, the battery check good at interstate battery. He claimed my solar panel charger was not working and he tried to sell me his model with panels at the cost of $400.00. My charger is working just fine.
Other than that, the stay at the park was great. Will ensure to stay there again when we visit Reno in the future.
Ed & Joy, Poway, CA.
Nice park clean and large sites easy to get to gps brought us to the front door.
Excellent facility. Easy to get to, beautiful grounds, nice showers. Arrived late but someone was there to offer info.
Only problem was we had 40 ft class A motorhome pulling full size jeep and we were too long for pull thru but park was not full and they put us close to end so we were not in anyone's way.
Very nice staff
Waiting out some bad weather we stayed near Reno, in the city of Sparks at the River's Edge RV Park. Close to Tahoe and Reno.
Staff was very helpful and nice people working at this RV park. Next to a river, but also close to I80.
We paid $35 a night for full hook-ups, pull-through site with cable. We situated right on a culvert though, which was OK, except it made it more difficult to get our car on the tow dolly.
Bathrooms were clean and big and nice hot and roomy showers. Passcode protected. Site was long enough and plenty of room to park van next to us.
Pool was closed - it snowed while we were there. City park next door. Above average park in cleanliness. Laundry, small store, propane, exchange library, free coffee. Nice, clean stay close to Reno.
