Heads up, the water is not (long-term) safe to drink: "Water sampling since 2014 has shown Town of Wheatland drinking water to be contaminated with the heavy metal Uranium above Federal standards." http://wheatlandtown.com/

The area is a local recreation space with some RV spaces along one side. I see basketball and tennis fields, a skate park, an amphitheater, and locals are just dismantling a large tent nearby that clearly hosted an event of some sort. The core park area has nice lush grass, the sidelines are dry.

There are train tracks nearby, which wouldn't otherwise be much of an issue but the trains sound their horns when approaching crossings, and it's very loud and long.

Many of the RV sites have 50/30/20 amp power, and the pedestal looks clean and well-maintained. All of the sites are back-in, and the back of the site is significantly higher than the front. We managed to level our 38' motorhome without lifting tires in the air by putting 1" wood blocks under the front tires -- the door steps are now high enough to make our dog hesitate before jumping up. The better sites are just long enough that you can park your car sideways in front, some of the non-electric sites are shorter.

The bathrooms are quite run down, and there is no lock in the men's room stall door.

The dump station is a metal hatch covering an open sewer grill, both significantly larger than your RV sewer hose; it's a bit of a gross experience.

Our supposedly RV-friendly Garmin GPS made us enter via Zorn St, which had quite a steep little hill you might want to avoid.

“Nice city park”

Reviewed Jun 14, 2015

Lewis Park in Wheatland is an older city park but in good shape. The spaces are of moderate size with shared power pedestal. Water and power at the sites and a dump station across the street.

Park has lots of amenities and there is a shelter just across from the RV parking.

It is a short hike up into the downtown area of Wheatland. There are several grocery stores and assorted fast food places in town.

The park is located across the road (about 100 yards) from railroad tracks which have moderate use though the folks I talked to said they had no issue with the sounds at night.

Park is on a donation basis and there is a 3 day limit. Not sure how well it is enforced.
