Mountain Gate RV Park, May 18 to May 25, 2016

Overall rating: 4.5 on a scale of 5

Location: This location worked out very nicely for us to see the sights in the area. Close enough to Redding to do shopping, etc., it is also convenient to Whiskeytown-Shasta-Trinity Recreation Area, Lassen Volcanic National Park (60 miles away) and the Sundial Bridge/Turtle Bay Exploration Park in Redding. The park is only about a mile (or less) off of I-5, but it is in a lovely wooded area and there is virtually no noise from traffic. 

Lot size: We had a beautiful drive-through end site (#122). There are concrete pads to park your RV, a grassy area, and nice, sturdy picnic tables at each site. We had plenty of room to park our tow dolly and car, although additional parking spots are available throughout the park for those whose vehicles did not fit on their sites. 

Lots are nicely spaced throughout the park. 

Amenities: There are 120 full hook-up sites; many of them pull-throughs. Cable TV, free wifi (sometimes slow, but sometimes usable), a convenience store/gift shop, club room, and propane is sold on-site. 

A pool (a little cold for me) and hot tub (divine!) are open from 9 am to 9 pm

The laundry room was very nice, although when we went to use it someone had left loads unattended in all 5 washers. There are signs stating that you can take out loads that are done, but I do not like to do that if I can avoid it. 

Several cabins are available for rent at the park. 

There are multiple bathroom buildings available at the park. Trash disposal is also located at the there.

Cost: $249/week (7th night free)

Management: The folks here are very nice and checked us in right away. When I made the reservation they were able to assign a specific site. There's lots of information about local attractions at the office as well. 

General Comments: This park was so very nice after staying at some less desirable places for the last few weeks. We loved it and would definitely stay here again if we are in the area.
