Overall Rating

As I write this we are nearing the end of our second summer here as seasonal campers. This is a city-owned RV park. It's in the city limits, on Lake Fremont, with a stream running along one end of the campground. The park is mostly seasonals, filled with people that have been coming here for years. There are a few transient sites but the park only fills up on the holidays.

Fremont is a town of about 4K people. It's big enough to have a Walmart but there are no other big-box retailers in town. It's best known for being the birthplace of Gerber Baby Food. The factory is still in operation although owned now by Nestle. There is a National Baby Food festival during the summer.

It's not a glamorous place - the streets are gravel (but they do treat for dust), and some of the fixtures are aging. The sites are gravel pads with grass between the road and pad.

But the bathrooms are newer and kept clean, there is a fish-cleaning station, a shuffleboard court and horseshoe-throwing pits and you can borrow the supplies for free. Fremont is in Amish country so it's not unusual to see Amish families by the lake & hear their horse-drawn carriages coming and going.

It's a quiet park. Even on the holidays there is little noise. Fremont is not on the way to anywhere - you have to purpose to come here.

We've returned here for three reasons:

  • Cost. The seasonal price is $375/month for full hookups, electric included. There is no park wifi but Xfinity Cable internet is available in the park (we hooked up for about $50/mo).

  • Convenience. Walmart and a local grocery store are 2 miles away. Downtown Fremont and the farmers market are about the same. We've walked or biked there.

  • Community. The seasonal residents here are friendly and welcoming. There are often group campfires, there is bingo, some potlucks, ice cream socials etc.
