Sad for Thousand Trails
0 % of users found this review helpful
What a sad experience this visit has been. Loud music all night. This campground has become a home for transients. No one seems to be in charge. On my previous visits a few years ago, security was always on patrol, now none in sight. Don't think I should even mention the electric problems, too many sites to mention. My last visit to this miserable place even though I am a long time member of the use to be nice Thousand Trails before Encore took over.

tent camping at this place.. hard dirt and sharp rocks to place your tent on. No visible security checks or person of authority traveling around to ensure campground safety.noisy party people all hours of night.extreamly loud trains pass by even at 2:45 am and wake you if your not already awake by the 18-more dogs allowed on campgrounds. Music playing till (no kidding) 4:30am. The vehicle traffic on dirt road which runs the lengeth of the tent camping area will surely add all the dust they kick up to your meals as you cook any time of day or hour. when you speak to rodney the guy whos wife runs the main campground office there, he will just tell you that this is nothing more then just families making a little noise. Yeah, I can't honestly say if he sleeps on site , but i would probably guess not!! if your planning on tent camping there i strongly suggest you take the following items: good ear plugs/ large floor matt for tent entrance/ and an I dont care what its like to camp there attitude.. because you will need it!

Have been to most all of the thousand trails over the years. This is the worst. We had to move sites twice in a 10 day stay because of power failures in the service boxes. While 50 amp power is advertised it is mostly taken up by long term rentals, or squatters who stay for months on end. While you are restricted to the number of vehicles on a site we observed several sites with wrecked cars, motorcycles and or boats filling "their site". In one case twwo old volkswagons, a storage shed and motorcyle provided an atmoshere of a run down dump. Most of the maintenance money apprears to have gone to the front entrance buildings and to improvements made on the annual rental sites. (They all have wooden fences around them. Weeds abound in the general camp sites. You can be rest assured that this is one place we shall never return.

We tried Soledad Canyon as a quick weekend trip, because it is close to home. Sadly, we were ultimately disappointed by this campground and won't be back until they do some major renovations. First, I registered online through the 1,000 Trails registration system. Arrived at the campground and they had no record of the registration. I handed my confirmation to the "park ranger" and was scolded for using the online registration system. HUH? Finally, we got checked in and we were told to "go find a site". With more than 1000 sites to choose from, we thought this would be a no-brainer. Well as it turns out, sites that actually have working power, are few and far between at Soledad Canyon, a problem that has persisted for many years now, as I understand it. This campground is huge! It is spread out which makes it a pretty nice campground. Our first night we parked in an area with electricity, but found it to be unsuitable, as it was too far away from anything. The next day we attempted to find a site with power (testing 8 different sites) and finally decided to run off of our battery. At $45 per night I was not happy. As we were testing sites, we also got a good look at some of the residential vehicles. There was an old u-haul truck, several bus conversions, and even an old trailer that was leaking black water onto the ground. We stayed as far away as we could from those areas. Now for the good. Soledad Canyon has an AMAZING swimming pool area. It is unparalleled in our camping adventures. This is one of those crystal clear pools that you would expect at a resort hotel. The area was clean, albeit crowded, and well kept. There is a mini golf course, store, club house and even a craft fair. 1,000 Trails does allow day-use of their facilities so the pool crowd tends to swell with locals on really hot days The Bottom Line: It has been a year since we have stayed at Soledad Canyon. Conditions at this campground have not improved. It's really a roll of the dice and with so many nicer campgrounds close by, we will be skipping this 1,000 Trails until they can clean up their act. If you are looking for a place to park-it over night, KOA is only 2 miles away and is a much better bet. As side note, get ready for the onslaught of telemarketing calls if you stay here. The goal is to sell you a 1,000 Trails Membership. If Soledad Canyon had been in better condition, I might have considered buying, but because of Soledad Canyon, I'll be spending my money elsewhere.

We completely and totally agree with FamilyRvers review of this place! There is NO WAY we would ever return. The church groups were horrendously noisy, the ants were relentless, and there is no "river" to speak of. The park is associated with Thousand Trails, and we honestly thought for the price and the association, that it would not be such a terrible experience. We unfortunately went there during the week initially to plunk down our money, but on the weekends, forget it! The entire world is there at your premium campsite, along with the ants. They had some sort of pond that was totally green with algae, and dead carp on the bank. What a mess!

The "river" is completely dry. The park stayed full of church groups, other large groups, and a lot of noise well into the night. Forget sleeping from Friday to Monday. The ants were horrendous, and made their way into the RV in a matter of one week. We had no choice but to stay where we were, due to the proximity to family. However, next time we will drive the distance to avoid the inherent problems with this park. There was no way to use any of the facilities, due to the large groups with children running everywhere.
