Turtle Beach RV Resort (Manteca, CA)

Categories Campground Reviews

Turtle Beach RV Resort is a Thousand Trails resort located in Manteca California on the San Joaquin River near the interchange of I-5 and I-120. Their staff is also very friendly and continually roaming the resort to make sure that the guests are maintaining the rules of the resort yet they are flexible to allow for situational circumstances, which is nice to see. While in their office asking a few general questions about the resort, the office staff make Jenn and I a Root-Beer Float, a nice treat on the hot day.

What frills and thrills do the resort offer??? Almost every site in the resort can accommodate the smallest of RV’s to the largest; a few would be a little tight getting a large RV into, but it still can be done. We have a 2014 RAM 3500 Crew Cab and 2016 Solitude 375RE totaling 60 feet in length when hooked together we were in site D9 for our stay and had plenty of room. They have over 70 sites with most being 30 amp electric/water only for the weekender and short term stays and their long term full hook-up leased sites offer full hookups, and they do make their guests keep up their RV’s appearance for the most part. Also, depending on the time of year, part of the property is open to dry camping for tenters and RV’ers. There is a clubhouse for your enjoyment and relaxing with a game/billiards room, as well as a small shelf library. They also offer RV storage, cable TV, onsite fishing access, waterfront sites a day-use picnic/BBQ area with access to the river, a great WiFi (you have to pay for it, but it is very good), and they allow all friendly non-aggressive pets. They also have a few portable building structures with nice showers so you do not have to fill your holding tanks while staying just to keep clean.

$0 –Thousand Trail members

$49 – Non-Thousand Trails members

On my “Worth-A-Stay” scale from 1 to 10, 1 – being OH MY GOD worthy of passing up and never looking back, to 10 – being OH MY GOD worthy of a must-visit again, I would rate this resort as a “7” for 2 reasons. 1 – Although the resort is nice, there is not much to do onsite. As a “resort”, we would have liked to see a pool, mini-golf, kids play-gym, pickleball court, etc. 2 – Ambient noise. There is a lot of natural noise, which is nice to hear the birds chirp, but it seems like the freeway traffic noise travels right over to the resort. But after some time you start to drown it out. But all in all, our stay at Turtle Beach is well worth it and I have no doubt that we will be back many times in the years to come.
