Cal Expo RV Park
Reviewed 18 December 2016

Stayed here for one night while in town for a medical appointment. The location is close to medical centers, shopping and many restaurants. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the restrooms clean and the showers were hot. We never felt unsafe in any way and found it was pretty quiet at night given the urban setting.

The parking is not level and they are very upfront about bicycle theft. Overall, our stay was pleasant. We would stay again if the need arises.

Did not use wifi.

Room Tip: If you have a shorter unit, request a paved space.

We booked a spot in this RV Park fro one night, and it wasn't what we expected. There was little to no grass. The staff were very friendly and helpful with questions on how to get to Lake Tahoe and Yosemite!

About half of the sites here are on pavement, many with trees. The other half are on gravel, no grass or trees. Neither are level. There is a large dog park (really large) with grass. Laundry, restrooms and showers, and that's it. There are bike/walking trails just off the entry road, that travel into downtown, or out of town.

If you just need a place to park, it's okay. We camped here in a VW Westfalia with our family. Park was a nearly empty, gravel parking lot. There is a river path adjacent and nice clean private bathrooms/ showers. Note that you MUST PAY A $20 DEPOSIT IN US CASH ONLY in exchange for a bathroom/ shower key and the office closes at 5PM. We were checking in at about 4:45PM and I tried to give them a Canadian $20 bill for the deposit and they would NOT ACCEPT IT (it's just a deposit but they couldn't seem to get past that it must be USD and in cash only, even though they were going to just return the bill to me the very next day. Luckily we managed to scrounge around and find some US cash in the van or else it would have been no bathrooms for us for the night ... haha). There is not much to do here, it;s just a place to sleep. The "rules" included things like kids not being allowed to ride bikes out of your site etc..

I was pleasantly surprised by this RV park. It's smack dab in the middle of Sacramento, yet it was extremely quiet and set at the dead end of a road behind Cal Expo. Bathrooms were very clean and the park was well maintained. Arrived late in the evening and our reservation was all set up. Staff was very helpful and courteous. There is open space behind a portion of the park. We stayed in a spot backing to the open space in the lot near the office. Not a "camping" type RV park. It's dense and I imagine it could also get noisy if crowded. It was only 1/3 full when we were there. Great central location, yet quiet and safe. This park is a little gem and I will stay here again!

Room Tip: Ask for a one of the spaces that backs to the walking trail if you have a smaller RV

There is an adult park in the area that we usually stay at. However, this trip I wanted very easy access to the American River bike trail right from the RV. This park has that. Check in was fast and easy (my wife loved Mabel the cat). The first area of paved sites slopes too much for my comfort so we opted for the gravel area in the back. How much your jacks have to level you at gravel sites has a lot to do with how much previous rigs have disrupted it, but our site was dead on. Power pedestal was located at a very convenient location for our 37' Class A. I pulled right in, dinghy still attached, everything right where I wanted it. This isn't a park where one sits outside & enjoys the view. The aforementioned, very popular, multi-use trail however, is right here. (Users should check TripAdvisor first. I will suggest that, for safety sake, upon reaching the actual trail, you only proceed to the left, not the right.) A boatload of eateries are an easy drive away. Chick-Fil-A & Cheesecake Factory are just two we patronized. Many very nice parks have periodic issues with bike theft in Ca. Expo now has night time security to address this. Propane is available for delivery to your site. Newspapers can be purchased by the office. There is no store associated with park, but you are in the middle of a big city, not the Sierra. Places abound where supplies can be found. Provided Internet was rather inconsistent. Your GPS will likely take you to the fairgrounds, not the RV park. Suggest you use the address 1010 Hurley. If arriving via Ethan Way, go straight as you approach the address. If on Hurley, turn left at the address.

We unexpectedly needed an overnight spot for us and our 5th wheel, they had plenty of spaces available but put us way out in the grave when there was paved spaces available. But, for $40 bucks it was good for a night with no need for amenities. They have full hook up which was nice in the 90+ heat! The laundry was closed until after 8 am the next day...we were gone by then. It was not noisy. Also, the spot we had had many, I mean many cigarette butts on the ground around where the doors was located on the space as well as four large screws, one sheet metal and the other three 2" gold screws. Not good for tires! Otherwise it was easy in and out and access to the interstate and good to have a place to hook up the toy hauler and sleep.

Room Tip: They have both paved spaces and gravel...ask for paved.
