We’ve been camping there for years, prior to KOA taking over. We RV with about 6 other RV’s and all enjoy boating together. We generally stay in a particular site with our friends in that same area. Even though that area has not been improved at all we are now paying fees that have priced us out. We had to run our generator in order for power (once for a few hours, once for 9 hrs until they woke us at 1:30 AM and asked us to turn it off on a 112 degree day) as the area we stay lost power a couple of times this last Labor Day holiday. We were the only family of our group that went. 6 boats, 6 RV’s. The marina slips have risen from $17 per night and $16 for tractor launch to $50 per night and $25 for tractor launch. A tip for the marina staff is on top of that. I noticed numerous empty slips this holiday so I’m sure we are not the only ones. Usually, you have to reserve quite early to get a slip.
We all only have adult children now and own boats that we pay a great deal to park in the slips, we do not ever use the park bathrooms, showers, or laundry facilities, attend any of the movie nights or make tie-dye shirts, nor do we use the swimming pool. We frequent Rosa’s for lunch and cocktails and after asking the staff we were told they were very disappointed with the turnout lately. It seems they may be suffering from the high cost of camping as well. It would be nice to have the opportunity to purchase a wrist band in order to use the park facilities in lieu of it being a requirement.
We will be visiting KOA Brannon Island and Riverview Point Landing in Stockton for many trips in the future.
