“Potential with awful restrooms”

Reviewed Oct 24, 2018

Overall Rating

The first impression of the campground was very good, lots of space and plenty of greenery. However, the restrooms ruined our total experience! We dreaded each time we had to go to the restroom. toilets seats were missing as well as locks but that wasn't the worst of it. Flies and insects everywhere and that even after it was "cleaned"... more

“Beware 'reservation' fee!”

Reviewed Oct 22, 2018

Overall Rating

They add an additional $8 fee to EVERY campsite, no matter if you actually reserve it or just pull in on an empty Monday on the off-season. They call it a reservation fee, but I'm not really sure how it can be when I never reserved anything. The place is a ways outside of town on a road riddled with grand canyon like potholes, dusty... more

“Noisy weekend, dead quiet week nights”

Reviewed Feb 22, 2018

Overall Rating

We stayed Friday through Tuesday over Presidents day weekend. It was quiet when we arrived early afternoon, but filled up rapidly. It was a bit noisy with kids running around and lots of groups in their campsites and around campfires. By Sunday afternoon though it quieted down a lot and by Monday evening it was dead quiet. This will ne... more

“Peaceful on weekdays, great view!”

Reviewed Feb 03, 2018

Overall Rating

We were really pleasantly surprised with this campground. If you get one of the waterfront sites, that's where it's at. We were here during the winter months, so I can't comment on how busy or noisy it is during the summer months. Based on the number of sites and the sheer size of the overflow parking lots, though, I can imagine during... more

Overall Rating

Drove in and asked to see the park first (looked kinds rough upon arrival). They sent us to our site and we looked around. Very dirty and garbage laying around. Rate was gonna be 50$, so I called a couple parks in downtown Bakersfield with better reviews and got one for 48$ with Good Sam (Bakersfield River Run RV Park). Chose to le... more

“Quiet campground in the central valley”

Reviewed Feb 04, 2017

Overall Rating

This is our second time staying at Buena Vista. Located just off I-5, this Campground makes for a great place to overnight while traveling. Winter is quiet here and we were able to get a full hookup water front site without reservations on a Friday night in February. While it's quiet now, it's easy to imagine more hustle and bustle du... more

“Excellent”

Reviewed Apr 06, 2016

Overall Rating

$40 for waterfront with utilities. Beautiful grounds and very well kept. If you dont want waterfront, hookup sites are $36. They have dry camping sites starting from $10 per night. Well worth it... we are right on the water. Each site has a bin, picnic table and fire pit. Boating available as well. Would recommend for families or coupl... more
