About the Aurora

Originally a restaurant known for decades as THE happening place on the lake, the Aurora has had a long presence in Lake County. It was converted into an RV park in the 1990s, and it now boasts 63 RV spaces, all of which have city water, county sewer, and 20/30/50 amp electric hookups. With new ownership in 2015, the park has been undergoing five years of renovations, all designed to provide our guests with quality and value. For instance, we have converted our men’s and women’s restrooms from their drab cinderblock décor to gorgeous units with granite countertops, fully private toilets, and motion-activated sinks, soap dispensers and paper towel dispensers. Moreover, although each restroom has two separate and spacious hot showers, we are nearing completion of an additional, brand new unisex restroom that is fully ADA-compliant. We have also remodeled our communal area where we have a large barbecue, picnic tables, a grape trellis, and our “Point” location. There one often sees guests catching fish off our seawall during the day and marveling at star-filled skies at night. Throughout the park we have Wi-fi available at no charge, and the use of our canoes and kayaks (as well as of our many fire pits) is free for our guests as well.

About

Thank you for your interest in the Aurora RV Park, where guests spend their days enjoying some of the most spectacular vistas in the world. You can see that for yourself in the pictures on this website, none of which have been enhanced. Yet, phenomenal as the pictures appear, they are nowhere near as glorious as the real thing.

We are dedicated to having every visitor thrill at what we offer, and we will do everything we can to make sure the each has a wonderful stay. Are you a fisherman? If so, try your hand fishing at the lake Bassmasters Magazine recently named the #1 bass-fishing lake in all of North America … FOR THE DECADE! Do you enjoy gazing at the night sky? Lake County has repeatedly been named by the American Lung Association as having the lowest level of particulates of any county in the nation! Accordingly, especially from March through October, myriad constellations and the Milky Way are right before your eyes virtually every night. Is birding your passion? We have herons, osprey, grebes, ducks, pelicans, geese, kingfishers, coots, and many more species seen right off our seawall. Otters, opossums, deer, raccoons and other mammals have visited us episodically.  

In addition to the foregoing, we pride ourselves on having an amazing staff that will do whatever it takes to ensure your satisfaction. Just let us know how we can serve you, for – as is our motto as well as our web address – we definitely want you to www.EnjoyOurPark.com!

Activities

We have canoes, kayaks and paddle-boats that our guests can use free of charge. We strongly suggest that you take one out in the early morning, when the water is often like glass … it is enchanting.

For boaters, we have our own boat ramp. (There is another boat ramp maintained by the county a few hundred feet away. That ramp has a dock as well.)

We have fire pits for evening campfires and a large barbecue area. We have small permanent barbecues, too, and portable ones we lend to guests who wish one of those.

Movie night at our lakeside theater is an absolute treat, with the lake providing a captivating backdrop behind the movie screen.

Play ping-pong, read, play games, and more in our activities room

Sit out at “the point” where there is a 300+ degree view of the water. While there, enjoy the multitude of birds that seem to love our space as much as our guests – grebes, ducks, coots, egrets, geese, and gulls are almost always present. Huge flocks of pelicans are not unusual, filling the sky with their flight formations, or floating on the lake and participating in feeding frenzies. Birds of prey – like osprey and bald eagles drop by now and again. An otter family is often spotted near our “Otter Island,” and occasionally deer, possums, and other mammals are seen.

Opportunities abound for hiking and exploring, such as on Mt. Konocti (our local dormant volcano) or at Clear Lake State Park. There are three nearby casinos, a variety of wineries, and even a planetarium in the area.

The town in which we are situated, Nice, is less than a mile away and has markets, restaurants, gas stations, a hardware store, a Dollar General, and so on. Tourists enjoy the rustic Main Street of Upper Lake, which is five minutes away, and Lakeport (the county seat) can be reached in about 12 minutes.

Next door there is a lovely county park, with swings, slides, picnic tables, old growth trees, and more. For those with pets, not only are we dog-friendly, but there is a wonderful newly-installed dog park about a half a mile away.
