Delta Shores Resort Isleton California

delta shoresDelta Shores Resort and Marina Isleton California

We first visited Delta Shores Resort and Marina in August with one of those “free weekends” in exchange for trying to sell us a membership.  We went knowing we would not be buying.  But…we did.  It is a part of Vista Resorts.  If you visit, please tell them John and Vickie Hayes sent you 🙂

We love the easy get-away from Sacramento and being able to do it anytime as a member.  This park is located in the Sacramento River Delta Loop area.  Sometimes getting sites in any campground, especially in 2020 and so far in 2021, has been difficult.  So it is good to have a place we can always get into.  Plus we have been wanting to get into the Coast to Coast and RPI memberships.  And they are really nice people here.  And as a member, it’s only $5/night – can’t beat that!

Delta Shores:

There are quite a few sites, and they are pretty much all lines up in rows.  Most have trees, which come in handy in the summer. They are big enough to fit our big slides and still have room.  They have full hook-ups.  There is a pool, laundry room, bathrooms with showers (newly renovated) and more, but I have to say we haven’t used any of these.  And our cell phones work, so I can work remotely.  There is plenty to do with the kids including volleyball, basketball, horseshoes, mini-golf, clubhouse, and a children’s playground.

The Delta nearby

Downside – most sites are 30Amp, but there are a few 50Amp.  You can’t reserve specific sites, it is first-come, first-serve, which is typical for membership parks.  And I wish they would invest in more picnic tables as every site doesn’t have one.

The Delta

This location offers fishing in the river on the levee, boating on the river/delta, tons of birds, sightseeing, plus dining nearby.

Membership Camping

I know membership park camping is not for everyone, but this one serves our purpose in two ways.  First, we can utilize this park and Canyon Creek out of Winters on a regular basis as we are limited on our trip taking while I work.  Then on our vacations and when I retire, we can take advantage of the Coast to Coast and RPI memberships to help cut costs as we travel the US.  We already saved quite a bit of money on our stay in Colorado this fall with Coast to Coast.  $10 vs $50-75/night average adds up fast.

Local Restaurants in the Delta

Another plus to this area is the local – as in right down the road – restaurants.  Moore’s Riverboat has hamburger and drink specials on Thursday nights (yeah – no cooking for me).  And Lighthouse Restaurant has a great restaurant that have delicious pizza.  I’m sure they have more than that, but that is what we like.

There is really a lot to do and many places to stay in the Delta – click here for more.  Rio Vista is not far away for shopping and more restaurant options.
