Lakeshore Villa RV Park

(15) Reviews

20672 Lakeshore Drive, Lakehead, CA, 96051

Located in Lakehead, California, Lakeshore Villa RV Park spans over 6.7 acres and features two outdoor restrooms with free hot showers, picnic tables and trails. We cater to large and small RVs and trailers ranging from 16 feet long to over 40 feet long plus sufficient space for a towing vehicle. Most of our spaces are approximately 16-24 wide and some are even wider, accommodating everyone's needs. Our sites feature 30 amp and 50 amp hookup service with full hookup to water with each space providing a sewer drain. As a convenience to our guests, propane is sold on site. The park backs up to a creek where swimming and fishing are popular. Fishing requires a state license which can be purchased online. Outdoor BBQ is allowed but, currently, no charcoal or wood burning is permitted due to the recent fires. Propane tank or electric BBQs are acceptable.

Please note that trains do run near our park and throughout the City of Lakehead.   Also, the lake water level is dependent upon the season and the amount of rainfall  With such in mind, whether your prefer a short and or a long term stay, we hope to see you soon!

***Please call our park manager at the number listed on your Reservation Confirmation Page, to see if the park's WIFI and Dish Network are currently available as we are in the midst of upgrading and are working on getting service.***

Although we not require insurance for your vehicles or RV, it is highly advisable that you have loss coverage for your trailer and personal belongings. Insurance is also recommended to cover damage caused by you. The park is not responsible for damage to property caused by others nor by natural calamities such as fire, floods or earthquakes. The park's responsibility is to maintain the grounds and the area outside of your lot space. You are responsible to maintain your own trailer and the area within your lot. Theft and vandalism of your property by others is considered an intentional act and is not covered by the park's insurance. You must carry your own insurance to be covered. Negligent acts by others may also not be covered depending upon the circumstances. To be safe, carry your own insurance. If a guest sustains a personal injury on park grounds, the park will open a file and will determine the cause of the injury. If the injury is caused by the park, an insurance claim will be filed. However, if the fault is not the park's, the guest should proceed under his or her own insurance coverage.

Upgrade or substitution policy

The park reserves the right to substitute or to upgrade a guest's reserved space subject to notification of the guest. Occasionally, due to factors beyond our control, a space may not be available for the designated reserved period. This could be due to a prior guest overstaying the designated check out time or date, accidents or to on going repairs. In such instances, we will offer to substitute an equivalent or larger space at no additional cost to the guest. If the guest does not agree to the substitution, we will refund in full all monies received from Roverpass paid by the guest. The guest may still have to contact Roverpass for any of Roverpass's charges for a refund of their charges. At times, a guest may request a change or upgrade from their existing space or reservation, perhaps, because the guest chose the wrong lot or space size for their trailer setup. We will be happy to accommodate such requests provided the desired space is available. The difference in price will be adjusted and charged directly to the guest. If not possible, a full refund can be offered provided the request is made timely.

Power Outtages

Within the last several years, Northern California has experienced power outtages due to PGE's monitoring of weather conditions and projecting days when it would be unsafe to provide power to certain regions of the state. If such a projection occurs upon your scheduled dates, if you have not yet checked in, we will offer you a cancellation of your reservation and we will offer you a full refund of your deposit except for any charges that you may have paid to Roverpass. You must seek a refund directly from Roverpass for their charges. If you still wish to continue with your reservation, we will refund you half of your daily charges for each day there is an actual power outtage. If possible, we will try to provide you with an alternative source of power such as from a generator unless you wish to use your own generator. Please note that you may not be able to run all of your appliances at the same time from a generator. Please be assured that you are under no obligation to stay if we cannot provide you with the optimum enjoyment of your time at the park.

Alcohol on the premises

Alcohol is permitted in the park as social drinking is a pleasant and enjoyable activity with friends and family. However, drunken and rude behavior is not tolerated. Guests will be asked to remain in their trailers if they exhibit such behavior.

Sale of Propane

We are able to sell propane to our guests. We offer our overnight guests discounted prices that are usually less than the surrounding area. However, only the park manager is authorized to load up your propane bottles. Please call the manager at 530 238 8688 if you need to purchase some propane. As we do not have a regular staff in the office, it is always a good idea to call first.

Check in and Check Out Times

Our check out time is normally 12:00 Noon. If you require a later check out time, please speak to our park manager and we will try to accommodate you. This gives us time to prepare the space for our next guest, if necessary. Our check in time is between 2:00 P.M. and 8:00 P.M on the day of arrival. If there are no guests staying in your space at the time you arrive, you may check into that space before 2:00 P.M. Occasionally, a guest may overstay his or her reservation. If such does occur, we will place you in an equal or better space or offer you a credit for your inconvenience. Also, we understand that delays can occur so that you may arrive later than scheduled. In such instance or if you do not see the park manager, if you know the number of your lot space and you have already prepaid for your space, please check the park map and go directly to that space. You can check in the next day. Otherwise, please call the park manager at the number listed on your Reservation Confirmation Page for assistance if you are not going to be able to arrive as scheduled. Although we do not have a regular staff in the office, we will try to accommodate any reasonable request if you call.

Bicycles in the park

Bicycles are allowed in the park but reckless driving or speeding is not allowed. If riding at night, bicycles must be equipped with a working headlamp and a taillight. Children, especially, like to ride their bikes so parents must monitor and control them. Be careful when driving near moving vehicles as drivers may not see you. Do not ride a bicycle near crowds. Do not leave a bicycle unattended that is obstructing someone's path or driveway.

Use of power receptables

In some spaces, there is a choice of using either a 30 amp socket or a 50 amp socket. In other spaces, there is only a 30 amp socket. However, do not try to use an adapter to convert your 30 amp plug in order to plug into a 50 amp socket. Similarly, do not try to adapt your 50 amp plug to insert into a 30 amp socket. You may blow out the circuit breaker or you may damage your vehicle. If your RV or trailer is equipped with 50 amp service, you will need to rent a space with an available 50 amp socket. Do not attempt to modify your 50 amp plug in order to plug into a 30 amp socket. You may blow out a circuit breaker or you may cause damage to your vehicle.

Cancellation policy

If Roverpass has a different cancellation policy other than the terms stated herein, we will apply whichever cancellation terms that are more favorable to you. Because we allow our guests to pick their own spaces when making a reservation, these spaces, once selected, are blocked off from other guests who may desire to rent that particular space. However, if a guest decides to cancel, it may be difficult to re-rent that space when it is too close to the reservation date. Therefore, we encourage our guests not to make a reservation for a particular space unless they intend to use it. Nevertheless, we will refund all fees if a notice of cancellation is given by either phone or email that is, at least, 14 days PRIOR to the scheduled reservation of a 1 to 3 night stay. There will be no refund if there is less than 14 days notice. If a notice of cancellation is given WITHIN 30 days of any scheduled reservations for 4 days or more, there will be no refund unless there are extenuating circumstances such as an illness in the family, an inoperable vehicle or boat, or poor weather conditions. Of course, if there is a cancellation without a refund and the space is re-rented to another guest, we will credit the original guest with the amount received toward their charges. In summary, we encourage advance booking to block out a favorite space and discourage last minute cancellations in fairness to others who may desire the same space. Please note that any separate fees paid to Roverpass must be refunded by Roverpass.

Cleanliness and smoking in the park

Please throw all trash into the trash bins. Do not leave used cups, paper plates, bags and debris on the ground or on picnic tables for someone else to clean. Smoking is allowed in the park but please do not smoke in any of the restrooms, buildings or near crowds. Also, do not throw cigarette butts onto the ground. Please put out your cigarettes or cigars and placed them into a metal, glass or water container as burning cigarettes are a major source of fire. Please do not throw any grease or oil onto the ground or into any drains. Pour into a container and throw into a trash bin.

Number of Guests

Each party may be up to 6 guests. Additional guests must register with the park manager and pay a fee or pay for an additional space.

Music at Night

Music and loud noises should be kept down after 10 P. M. at night.

Fire in the Park

Currently, no wood burning is allowed in the park due to the potential of fire. Propane or electric BBQs are permitted.

Driving in the park

Pedestrians always have the right of way. Whenever someone is walking alongside or crossing in front of you, please slow down or stop and let the person pass. Otherwise, please do not drive more than 5 miles per hour in the park. When parking a trailer or boat, please get out of the car often to observe the position of the trailer. Please take note of any objects that may be hit when backing up your trailer or boat into a space. Please note that the park does have speed bumps on its roads. Therefore, if you are pulling a trailer, you must go slow to minimize bouncing of your vehicles and tow behinds.

Pet rules

Pets are welcome but need to be under the control of the owner and on a leash whenever outside on the grounds. Aggressive animals are not permitted. Proof of insurance may be required if you own a Pitt Bull or a Rottweiller. All owners must pick up litter after their dogs.

Use of restrooms

Flush the toilet often when using. This helps prevent clogs in the toilet. However, please do not flush any paper other than regular toilet paper in the toilet. Kleenix, paper towels, diapers and tampons should not be flushed down the toilet as they are not biodegradable and will cause a blockage in the drains. Surprisingly, even facial tissue does not break down in the water and can cause blockage. Please use the trash bins instead.

This place is full of broken, gutted, falling apart campers and basically a junk yard. We pulled in and immediately left to go find another spot for the night. Don’t waste your money here. The Sacramento River Rv Park is much nicer and about the same price!

Campground Response

Sorry we did not meet your expectations. Many of our guests do stay for several months at a time so the park may appear lived in. Despite the appearance of the trailers, I would say that most of our guests are excellent people. They are cordial, polite, helpful and responsible. They stay at the park because they like it and they refer other guests. We are generally very busy but we keep a few spots open for our overnight guests who need a rest stop. We are within walking distance to the lake and we have clean showers and restrooms which are basic amenities desired by most travelers. The park is safe as evidenced by the fact many of our guests are not worried about keeping their personal items outside. Every RV park has its pros and cons so another park may be a better fit for a particular traveler.

Ben Sell

If you've always dreamed of camping in an honest-to-goodness shanty town with real-life Pirates of the Caribbean characters running around, then this place is a dream come true! If that is less appealing to you, then I advise you to do what I did and keep driving to the much nicer Lakeshore East Campground just down the road.

Campground Response

There are reasons why our park is usually near full. The park offers a safe and quiet place for our guests to stay. The guests who stay longer term at our park look out for each other and always offer a helping hand to those travelers who need it. We have many guests who return once they get to know the park and its people. Certainly, no park can meet everyone's expectations but if you are looking for a welcoming environment, we are it.

Paul Smith

It is a shame such a business actually exists in this little town of Lakehead. There has been so much illegal activity in this park it is sad. The owner needs to actually be present and take care of the issues being scene by the community.

Campground Response

Paul, It may be helpful if you have ever actually stayed at the park but we have never heard of you. Yes, there have been incidents involving certain individuals in the park who have surprised the park as well as everyone else, but these individuals do not represent the park. Most of the guests in the park are good people who pay for their spaces and cause no problems. They stay at the park because they enjoy the environment and the community spirit. Most certainty, our guests can stay at another park if they so choose but they do not wish to go elsewhere. When our guests also refer other guests, that should tell you a lot.

Donna Redmond

The park unfortunately has deteriorated to the point of housing individuals involved in crime and drug activity. “Tarping” campers is the view you will get in this park. Along with broken down vehicles and debris. There are still people living there that have been a part of the community for a long time, and is so terrible that they have to live in that environment. The community is in an uproar and will all ban together to continue to complain to authorities and hopefully regain some integrity. It is a shame that the park owner, from out of the area, is destroying our community.

Campground Response

Donna, It does not appear that you have ever stayed at our park so what you may have heard may be based upon innuendo and hearsay. The people who stay at our park are, certainly, not forced to live there as they have many options and choices. In fact, there are cheaper parks elsewhere if price is a factor. In every community, there may be incidents that occur that are undesirable but that does not mean that is the norm. If a problem exists, we address it and correct it. It may take a bit of time. The people in the park understand this. If you read the reviews of almost every other park, you can see that they also get negative comments about them from guests who may have certain expectations. We do our best to maintain a safe and desirable environment for our guests and travelers. The fact that many of our guests like to stay tells us that they do not agree with your perception of the park.

Jeremy Wooten

Lewis thanks for your help.

Virginia Evans

This campground is full of monthly campers and tweakers. We left as we did not feel safe staying here. We ended up going down the street to Lakeshore Inn & RV which was lovely and highly recommended.

Campground Response

Hi Virginia, We are sorry that our park did not meet your expectations. But, just to assure you, our park is very safe and we have many returning customers. It is doubtful that such customers would return if they had found the park to be unsafe. While we do have long term guests, they help to keep the park in business which allows us to accommodate future short term guests. If you ever find a need to use our park, you are certainly welcome to try us out.

Elizabeth Eller

I was greeted by very friendly and helpful employees. And the showers and bathroom was very clean. Thank you for a peaceful stay.

Campground Response

Elizabeth, Thank you for the good review. It is greatly appreciated.

Paul Arakorpi

First time there. Had to cancel the reservation due to forest fire and poor air quality. Called numerous times no answer and voice mail was full. You can only leave your phone # . No return call or refund yet.

Campground Response

Hi Paul, It appears that you had tried calling the park when our phone service was down. We had returned calls to a number of our guests but, apparently, we did miss your call. However, even if you could not have reached us by phone, since you had self made your reservation online, you could have, just as easily, asked to cancel your reservation online but you did not. Nevertheless, at the time you had made your reservation which was on June 30, we had a posted no cancellation policy in effect if your cancellation request was made within 13 days of your scheduled reservation. The fire did not start until June 30, 2021, the same day you had made your reservation and your arrival date was not due until 10 days later. You had reserved a space for July 9, 2021 but you had asked to cancel on July 6, 2021. The fire danger had already passed by July 4. The park had nothing to do with the fire nor did the park cause the fire. The park remained opened during the entire time and no one was required to evacuate. Guests were still arriving at the park and keeping their reservations. Therefore, you could have still kept your reservation. Although you were not allowed to cancel, we will credit you for your two nights stay for a future reservation for a similar lot on a space available basis if you let us know a date within the next 12 months.

Michelle Meyers

Maintenance man was great! He refinished all the tables and bathrooms were clean. Never met the owner, but he was available by phone and kept us updated about wildfires. He also moved us to a better spot to help keep our group together. Would stay here again.

Bonnie Marshall

If you wanna be price gouged and have the owner attempt to scam more money any way possible, this is the RV park for you!

Campground Response

Bonnie, You had made your reservation on your own through Roverpass with all prices and terms disclosed to you. The park did its part and has adhered to those terms. You stayed for three months and told others in the park that you liked the park. You said many times that you did not want to leave. At the end of your stay, you said you wanted to extend your stay. The park offered you an extension at a price less than what you had previously paid. However, you declined the offer saying you wanted an even lower price or you would not voluntarily move out. The park is not required to accept a price that you set. If you had believed that the owner was trying to scam you, then why did you wish to extend your stay at the park? It would seem that you would want to leave rather than stay. Moreover, your reservation automatically ends on the date that you had agreed to vacate the park. You have no further obligation to pay any more than what you have already paid. Your sole complaint is that you feel you should be paying less for a future stay but every RV park or hotel sets its own rates. A guest is free to accept or decline those rates. If you are not satisfied with our rates, your option is to find another RV park more within your budget. Refusing to leave the park after your reservation has ended is not the way to get what you want.

Solomon Wechsler

Very good RV full hook up resort closed too many attractions and places to visit the manager was very nice and let me to extend my visit I really don’t understand the complains of the people that they supposed to come and have fun from this resort and not looking for complain for no reason. So anyone who want to come and have a good time I highly recommended to save a spot at this location.

Campground Response

Solomon, thank you for your nice review. It is greatly appreciated.

Roger Moore

Overall it was a good experience. PROS- convenient location, full hookups, close to some amenities, affordable, nice showers, maintained restrooms, nice staff. CONS- we were told it was going through a change of ownership and it showed. The park looked to be improving but has a ways to go. Not a fan of the blue tarp tent surrounded by junk and the abandoned RV at the park entrance. Also appeared to be some long-term residents with older RVs and lots of clutter. Across the street from an active train track that runs at night. Spaces not very defined and some odd shaped. We stayed 3 nights and enjoyed it. We also didn't spend much time there because there is nothing to do at the campground.

Campground Response

Hi Roger, Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review. Yes, the park still needs improvement and some things will take longer than others to accomplish. As part of the improvement process, we did decide to concentrate on the safety issues first before tackling aesthetics. As to the trains running, we do disclose that trains run periodically near the park as they do throughout the City of Lakehead. As to the available activities in the park, most of our guests use our park simply as a rest area, rather than an end stop, before proceeding to enjoy the other features that Lake Shasta has to offer such as fishing, boating, swimming or sight seeing. We just provide the spaces for our guests to park their RVs and to relax. We hope to make their stay at our campground as comfortable as possible. In fact, many of our guests stay for the whole summer but have other activities planned outside of the park. As to the existence of some long term tenants, in order to keep the costs down for our short term guests, we do have some parties who stay when the guests leave for the summer. Otherwise, the short term guests would have to bear the cost of keeping the park open throughout the year. Nevertheless, we will try to continue to make the park a good place to rest for our travelers heading on to other destinations. In consideration of your writing a review, we would like to offer you a complimentary 3 day stay at our park any time within the next 12 months including any holiday period on a space available basis.

Van Hoang

The park is good for the long terms. living people not for layover go RV enjoyment people. I will never come back to the Lakeshores Villa.The RV park Located next to trains routes, it very noisy, no WiFi, dry RV Park, no view. I can’t wait to leave the Park the next day.

Campground Response

Hi Van, We are sorry that your stay was not as enjoyable as it could have been. As to train noise, we did disclose in our listing that trains do run by the park as they do throughout Lakehead and that such a factor should be taken into consideration when making your reservation. As to lack of wifi, we had also disclosed that wifi may not be currently available as we are working on extending our coverage. As to being a dry park, if you mean that the adjoining lake is low on water, that is true because of the recent fires. After the winter rains, the water level should rise again. Perhaps, we could have moved you to a better location if we had known you did not like your space. Nevertheless, if you are ever in our area again, we would like to offer you a free five night stay at our park any time within the next twelve months as we appreciate your comments and value your business.
