Sacramento Ca

We are headed to Sacramento Ca with our granddaughter and are looking for a good camp site near old town and the capital. Anny suggestions?

When are you coming into Sacramento, Rusty Bear? It is a bit warm right now.

Sacramento is pretty limited when it comes to campgrounds/RV parks in town.
This one has mixed reviews and it may be hard to get into due to the State Fair.

You may also check the KOA in West Sacramento. It looks to have some recent great reviews plus it is very close to the Vic Fazio Yolo Wildlife Area !

Old Towne KOA is a pretty nice spot, easy on and off freeway (US50), reasonably priced, stayed there in Mar of this year for one nite. If you have pets, have a large pet area, pets allowed off the leash in the area. No freeway noise, imagine it is a pretty busy place in the summer. I would stay there again.

We're from the area and spent a month at Cal Expo last winter while tying up loose ends on sale of our home. We found all of the negative stuff in the reviews to be true, but still enjoyed it simply because of the location. Dogs loved walks by the river and we biked on the greenbelt nearly every day... including down to Old Town... about 8 miles one way.

We're headed back this winter but will probably try a different park, probably the KOA.

We stayed at the KOA in West Sacaramento this month and found it to be close to everything, Capital, Old Town Etc. It is gravel and I would give it a seven on a ten scale. The people who run it were very friendly.

Here's another recommendation for the KOA in West Sacramento. I stayed there about a week ago (for an overnight) and found it to be a nice park. The office staff were very friendly, welcoming, and helpful. The sites were good sized although a touch close to the neighbors but nothing I found objectionable.
