Our Review

We stayed at Russian River RV Campground from March 2-9 2020. This is an older NACO park that is now a Thousand Trails. It is a really nice clean park for its age. The friendly staff keeps the park in good shape. Some sites are a bit too small for the large modern RVs of today. A few sites are at weird angles and some are built on a slope where you’d end up going down the hill when you walk out your door.

We had our choice of a few sites that were big enough for our 38′ motorhome. The site we got was level and plenty long for our coach and toad. The Russian River looks inviting and we would definitely have gone for a dip if the weather was warmer. There are no full-hookup sites in this park and sites only have 30 amp service. The park has propane for purchase.

One area of concern for us when we started walking the trails, there is a lot of poison oak around. We decided to not walk our dogs on the trails for this reason.


Russian River RV Campground has most of the amenities you’d want from a campground. The staff is very friendly and helpful with any questions you may have.

  • Restrooms/Showers

The restrooms were dated but very clean. We saw people cleaning them daily.

  • Laundry

Each restroom building has a single washer and dryer on the backside. Wash and dry for $1.50 each. Machines take coins or you can pay with an app from your phone.

  • Dog Park

There is no dog park at Russian River Thousand Trails.

  • Lodge

The park has a nice lodge with a small store with all the necessities.

  • Pool/Spa

There is no Pool or Spa at the campground but you do have the Russian River for kayaking, canoeing, rafting, trout fishing, and swimming.

  • Mail/Package Service

We didn’t try to receive any packages while at the Russian River RV Campground.

  • Sports, Recreation, and Playground Areas

There is a kid’s play area with an up-to-date slide and climbing wall. There is also a tether ball for those who are so inclined.

Things to see/do nearby

We really loved the location of the Russian River RV Campground. We spent a couple of days driving up through the Redwood Forests and checking out the glass beach in Fort Bragg. Also, while we were in the area we went to Santa Rosa and had a blast exploring Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and the rest of the Peanuts Gang at the Charles M Schulz Museum.


Russian River RV Campground is a great starting point for many adventures in the Northern California area. There is so much to see and do within a short drive of the campground. It’s a very nice and well-maintained campground with a staff of friendly and helpful employees willing to go the extra mile to ensure you have an enjoyable stay.

  1. I’ll be at this park beginning of July. My husband works from the rig. How is cell service? We have Verizon and a booster.
