Almond Tree Oasis RV Park is located in Coalinga, California, right off Highway 5. The park is surrounded by an abundance of trees and farmland and is the midpoint between San Francisco and Los Angeles. Because of the location of the RV park, those driving in their RVs can stop for a night stay while on their way to another city. Many guests have said that the location of the RV park has been one of the main reasons why they visit there. The park receives various repeat guests as people travel to one place and then make a return trip.
The Almond Tree Oasis is mainly an RV park that sits on a five-acre property. There are 80 RV sites that are 20, 30, or 50 Amp sites. Each site is a pull-through site with full hook-ups. In addition to RV spots, there are 6 guest rooms that can be rented out monthly. The guest rooms each have private bathrooms. There are also 2 RV guest suites that can be rented out on a monthly basis. Every guest of the property has access to free Wi-Fi and several other amenities. There are offices available to guests with printers and quicker Wi-Fi, though at an additional cost. There are two shower houses with hot water and dressing rooms for each shower with doors that have locks. There is a camp store on the campground that contains basic groceries and camping gear that can be purchased by all of those who are staying at the RV park. Propane can also be purchased at the store. The property also has a laundry room open for guests to use at their leisure.
Something that makes the property unique is that there are two swimming pools available for campers to use. This is different when compared to other properties in the region, which, if they have one, don't usually have two pools. Along with the pools, Almond Tree Oasis RV Park is pet-friendly, providing an area for guests to bring in their animals and use the dog park. There is also a rebuilt picnic area available for visitors to share a meal with their friends and/or family.
Axel Fuchs, the owner of Almond Tree Oasis RV Park, states that Almond Tree Oasis "strives to provide its customers with a peaceful and relaxed experience." Guests who have lodged here have mentioned the quiet atmosphere that the RV park brings. One guest wrote that the RV park was a "great location, quiet and clean. A perfect location between southern and northern California." Another guest left a review, saying that "the campground was so nice the host was very warm and welcoming. This is a very clean, nice campground. If I ever need a place to stop again on the 5 I'd definitely come back to the Almond Tree Oasis."
Coalinga was a former mining town, which has provided the city with over 100 years of success. The name Coalinga derives from the discovery of coal in the area, which was uncovered by Southern Pacific railroad engineers in 1891. The city is relatively small and is known for having the largest beef supply in California, which has become a tourist attraction. A popular event titled "The Horned Toad Derby" originated in this town, dating back to 1935. The Horned Toad Derby is a three-day event in which local residents can bring horned toads that they have caught and race them for the amusement of others. In the city of Coalinga, there is the Harris Ranch Inn & Dining, where visitors can eat some of the beef supply from this famous ranch.
Another attraction from Coalinga is the R.C. Baker Memorial Museum, which displays local fossils and Indian artifacts. As stated by the owner, Axel Fuchs, "Almond Tree Oasis is the midpoint between San Francisco and Los Angeles, with both locations being a day trip away."
Almond Tree Oasis was introduced into the RV park industry in 1989 by a man named Henry Sommerville. Henry Sommerville was a local farmer in the area who decided to make some changes in his profession. The RV park that stands there today was first established as "Sommerville Almond Tree Park." Eventually, after about 20 years, the RV park went through a name change in the year 2019 because it was then put under new management. Axel Fuchs, an investor, purchased this RV park and changed the name to "Almond Tree Oasis," which is the name that the park is currently known for. Axel runs the park while attempting to get to know his guests, frequently thanking them for their reviews and looking for different ways to make his RV park better. He has many plans for changes for the park in the future.
