    Great place. It would be better if the Staff had a "Happier" demeanor. It appeared that some of the staff was just putting in their "Time". I have been a 1000 Trails member for over 11 years and Rancho Oso is my "Home" Campground.

    Paradise Rd could use some kind of signal light system to know when the road is clear to continue on some of those treacherous turns! That might be more cost effective than attempting to widen the road.

    Great for the kids. DJ at the pool on Saturday night was fun. Would have been nice to arrange an RV site next to our traveling family. There were not two sites together when we arrived. Small point though.

    We are long time Thousand trails members and this was by far the worst experience we have had in any location. The tent camping was a nightmare and we will not return. We did not sleep at all and the level of disrespect of those...More

    I went To oso for the first time and I had a very nice time it was peaceful, quite, friendly. I enjoyed the horses and the other animals. The pool Areobics were lovely and the spa was a perfect heat. Thank you

    As far as I know they do at all thousand trails resorts since it favors RV's, however we rent the cabins cause no RV yet.
