Dangerous Not For Elderly Or Children
We were greeted by Linda who we had to beg to allow us to stay because our RV had a slight wave in the siding, and said it looked rough. It only has 17,000 miles and has had everything professionally fixed. We were told that we couldn't stay any longer than 7 days because of the TV's condition. We had to move from the first spot because of electrical problems, and the spot we went to also had a week breaker that kept tripping with only the AC running. Other spots had panel covers missing with exposed 220 live wiring where kids or pets could be electrocuted. The grounds were unkept with balls from suger gum trees everywhere in places 6 inches deep. I rolled my ankle stepping on a pile of them consealing a large depression in the asphalt. Then when I told David he said he had been driving over them for months, instead of removing the hazards. He also told me that state workers would be reprimanded for working too hard. There are more problems too, but this is all that would fit.

Stayed here because basically nothing else in Sacramento. Location was convenient.
Spot backed up to Bike Trail but chain link fence with “razor wire” keeps undesirables/homeless out. Spots in back were not cleaned (lots of tree debris and tumble weeds in back of spot). Asphalt (hot). Not much room to put out chairs with truck. Spots are close together (thankfully neighbor was friendly although smoked. No opening windows on that side of the trailer). Tree next to spot was nice for shade but limbs hung down too far and hit trailer. Office was closed when we arrived so could not request help. We used a knife and cut limbs since it was breezy ( didn’t want rub damage). Some “campers” could be more respectful. Another neighbor liked to let his diesel truck idle in front of our spot — why?? Disrespectful. We didn’t use any facilities so no comment. Rail line not too far away. I could hear the train but it didn’t bother us.
Next day talked to staff. They were friendly.

We stayed here July 3 thru 7/26 2019. Full time RV’rs here. This park has 3 sections. The first is the south section, to the left when one drives in. It’s all paved, not level and has a few trees. The second is the northeast section which is all cement and offers trees. The largest is the northwest section which is very large, all gravel and has no trees. Summer temps in Sac can be in the 100’s. This last section is all pull thru and has wide spots.
This is a no frills park. Dog park had knee grass/weeds and no poop bag dispenser. Never saw that before.
This park is situated 1/2 mi from the American River which offers beaches, swimming, fishing, walking and bike trails. We rode our bikes to downtown sac twice. A nice 14 mi round trip. There are plenty of homeless living in the river area nearby, but park security seems to keep them out. Security patrols at nite. The park is located near plenty of shopping and restaurants of every kind. Nearby area tends toward seedy.

Good Place To Stay
We stayed here mid-May 2018. It's a great place to stay while doing things in the area. It's not a "campground" for families and gatherings - i.e., no fire rings, etc. It's just a concrete parking lot, but that suits our needs. Bathrooms/showers are decent. Park staff that we encountered were nice and friendly.
Wide sites. Close to lots of businesses (shopping, food, laundromat, car wash, etc). New Cracker Barrel restaurant opening soon just less than 1 mile away!!

This is a great park in the midst of a big city. All spaces a level and pull through. The only thing wrong oi s all the 50 amp spaces are in the back lot which isn't paved. Real quiet park and is real close to restaurants and shopping. We have stayed here before and really like it.

I just got off the phone with Sharleen who helped me make a week long reservation. She was very informative and friendly. They had availability for the exact dates that I needed and made sure my fifth wheel and truck would easily fit. Based on the initial conversation I think it is going to be a great week!

Its a giant paved parking lot with little to no cover. I had just bought a 2004 30' fifth wheel with less than 500 hours on it in near mint condition. Unknown to us the awening had sun damage and when we went to extend it out it ripped. My wife us little and wasnt able to help me put it back in place. I put it neatly under the fifthwheel for about 12 hours till i could get some help. After that the mamagers attitude completly changed acting like we were scum. Even though we had paid for a week in advanced. We even let them know we were new to this and they were rude as hell so we just cut our stay short and left. I would not stay again. Walmart has a nicer landscape to thier parking lots than this place.

Clean And Covenant
Cal Expo is a clean and safe RV Park, centrally located and within a mile of Arden Fair mall. Located right on a bike trail next to the American River. The park has two lots, one completely paved, one gravel. Very few trees in the park. This is not for typical RV Park, as ours primary use is for travelers utilizing the exposition area. The volunteers and other staff are friendly and can direct you to and services you are on bed of. They're are hundreds of restaurants within 1 mile of the park. One of the other reviews complained of a $20 fee to use the restrooms and showers, it is a twenty dollar "deposit" for the key. Your $20 deposit is returned to you at the end of your stay when you turn in the key. Wi-Fi was excellent and we streamed live channels with almost no buffering. All the spots are full hook up, with most of them being pull through. The park has washed and dryers that are open from 8am to 5pm. There is a 30 day max stay. Paved lot is somewhat sloped, need leveling blocks.

You need $20 cash to use their showers. Not very accommodating. Will not stay again
