Jackson Rancheria RV Park

Well, this just happens to be the “Disneyland” of RV parks.  What I mean by that is that the quality of this park is top notch.  It is kept squeaky clean, the landscape is perfectly maintained and the amenities and services are first rate.

What do I love about this RV Park……


Jackson has become our regular “winter” spot.  It’s located in the foothills of Amador County outside of the town of Jackson, Ca., is part of the Jackson Rancheria Indian Casino property and only a 45 minute drive from our home.  What makes it a good winter spot for us is that it’s not too high to get serious winter weather like snow and ice but is high enough to be above the fog that tends to plague the Sacramento Valley.


When the casino folks decided to build this RV park they did it right.  The location provides 360 degree beautiful views.


A lovely paved walking path surrounds the camp with easy access at either end of the park.


It’s a great place to walk the dogs, enjoy the outdoors or take a jog.


The casino provides a free shuttle that comes through the RV park at approximately 20 minute intravals to give those who are interested a ride to the casino.  So, if you enjoy gambling, or the shows, or just dining at the buffet, the shuttle is an easy and convenient service.

But then, who knows…. you may be more like me and not very interested in casinos.  In that case you need to know that Jackson has some wonderful attractions.  You may not know this but Jackson, California has the greatest used bookstore I have ever seen.  It is called Hein & Company Bookstore and is located on Main Street in Old Jackson.  There are two floors of floor to ceiling books.  For book lovers it is heaven.  I bring a list with me so that I don’t get overwhelmed and know what to look for.   There is also a wonderful kitchen store that is on the opposite side of Main Street that I love to browse and at 11984 W. State Hwy 88 is the Sewing Cottage.  The Sewing Cottage isn’t the best quilt shop I’ve been in but it’s always worth a visit.

If you like wine Amador County is one of the greatest places for tasting.  There are wineries in Jackson and all the surrounding communities like Sutter Creek, Dry Creek and Plymouth.   Just try it once and you’ll wonder why everyone thinks they need to go to Napa for wine tasting.

If you like antiques Old Jackson has several nice shops to browse and  Sutter Creek does as well.


Or you can just hang out with the dogs in your slippers cause they have cable…….Teddy turns into a Mama’s Boy when we go camping and has to sit in my lap.

I would give this place 5 out of 5 stars.  The only negatives I can conjure up is there are no fire pits or wood fires allowed ( I enjoy a camp fire!) and you can’t choose a specific site when you make reservation……. Big Deal!
