Roadrunner Review: The Lakes RV and Golf Resort

Brother Marty mentioned to a friend that we have a motorhome and would be making our way to Arnold CA for a 4th of July Reunion with the other brothers and wives. His friend told him about the Lakes RV and Golf Resort and Marty passed the info on to us.

My first thought was it could be nice.  Or on the other hand, it could be a Par-3 'Executive Course' or something along those lines.  He said that golf was free and it was a good place to stay.

Turns out they were right.  It is a Championship Par 72 course that is a good one.  The rates at the RV Resort are 37/night which is very reasonable.  The golf is free, although to ride in a cart is $16/per person.  Still very reasonable and a real value.

Here's the layout of the Resort from TheLakesRV.com
The directions off California Highway 99 from Fresno to Chowchilla and the resort are good.  It was easy to find off the freeway and has a large entrance parking area for check-in.  I love the big gates.

Some views of the streets and lots.  The streets are wide, the pull through lots are the widest. 
Our site is on the right with our Honda CRV parked in front of it.

The perimeter sites are a bit cramped with not enough room to park the car.
Though its a little tight, and we can not open our awning because of the tree in the back, we opted for a cheaper $37/night site since we wanted to stay two weeks.
I love the mature hedges that mark off each site.  Our neighbor apparently owns the lot next to us because we have not seen them since we have been here.

The rest of the park is very nice.  Laundry is very reasonable at $1.00/$1.25 (washer/dryer) and a short walk away.  The layout of the grounds is pretty nice.

The small pond and swimming pool are very nice and perfect for the hot weather we have been having.
Pretty great to be able to walk over and lounge around the pool a couple hours each day.  I didn't try the whirlpool but it's there too.
Inside, they have a little shop
and registration area.
And a lounge reading area
Outside it had some pretty nice lounging areas to soak up some sun.  Across the pond, folks could pay a little extra and have a 'waterfront' site.
Back at our area - it was adequate.  Tight but OK.  We could put out our door awning but the slideout awning had a tree problem.
The other great thing about this place is that it is a block away from the Pheasant Run Golf Course.  And, guests at the RV park can get free greens fees!  Yes!
 And it is not a par three / executive course it is a full regulation championship par -72 layout.  For $16 each, we got a cart and played a round of golf.  It was a great deal.  And I liked their driving range and practice facility.  I was able to use it three times and determine yes, with one eye I could still make contact with the golf ball!

We enjoyed our time at this RV/Golf facility.  It lived up to its billing and was a nice place to stay.

Thanks for joining us on the Roadrunner Chronicles!
