I've never posted a 1 review of any campground before, in our opinion it should be Zero. But, this one is Soooo Bad, in our opinion it _Natural_High_ needs to be _removed_ as a Coast to Coast Campground, it was not worth $8. We have stayed in much better campgrounds Free. We just left there Aug 1, 2007... We have been camping over 43 years, and this is the very worst. First their website had not been updated since the 90's, and it is filled with not just inaccuracies, but outright deceptive advertising... The last activities list was for May 1999. Inside Pool Restrooms/showers for men, women, and children have _No_ Doors. Walking down the corridor to enter, men or women and children, can look directly into both. You can see anyone in them, including those who are showering or changing clothes. (It is not advertised as a nudist camp) No Dressing area or shower curtains. Restrooms very dirty, and no paper in some stalls.... Amenities listed are NOT available. _No_Hot_Water_ in sinks or showers, they said, "we will have the plumber check it." But at the end of the week, still not hot water. Outside showers, where you shower before entering pool, have no lights, when you close the door, it is pitch black, AND they have NO Water... not even cold water. Hot Tub is Closed, and has not been open this year, maybe longer. Indoor Pool is NOT heated as posted, and so dirty we would not use it. Chapel is roped off, and not in use or available. No_Laundry Facilities which have evidently been closed for some time. Adult Lounge, nothing there but a few card tables. Upstairs what has been a dining area, carpet is so filthy it appears it has not been cleaned, not even vacuumed in a month or more. Restrooms upstairs in mens room, toilet clogged, and evidently has been for some time. You could smell the stink from it, in the dining area, without opening the door. Looks like it has been that way for more than a week. AND it was that way all week long, even after we complained the first day. They said, "We will have the plumber check it." We made reservations. When we arrived they could not find them. Had to give them all the information all over again. They entered our membership number incorrectly, even though copying it directly from our card. So still had trouble making a reservation. Found the error, and corrected it. It took them over an _HOUR_ to get our reservation completed. We had reservations for a Full Hookup with 30 amps... Three campers waiting to ask questions, got tired of waiting, and left. We then had to wait over half an hour for someone to show us to the site (They had not given us a number, but said to wait.) When he took us to the site, the RV in the next site was pugged in ours, as his did not work. It also had NO sewer connection... When we complained, he said "Well, if you are going to be like that, I'll find another." He looked at half a dozen nearby sites, and found something wrong with each, at one point asked, "can you use 20amps?" He had an obnoxious attitude, as it it were our fault he could not find us a site. Finally, he took us to the other side of the campground, to an area which looked as it it was reserved for members, and we got our site, with Full Hookups. BUT, then he told us to park crossway's, across 2 Sites. OK for us, as we had not yet seen the problems.... but it blocked the other site, so no one else could use a good site. By the time we were there _Over_ two hours had passed for registration & getting an assignment to a site... The "well stocked store," had practically nothing in it. Less than 20% of the shelf space was filled, and most there was of no interest to adults, except soda. We Would Have Left Also, except we needed some work done on our RV at Camping World. We had to wait for a week for our appointment. We have traveled from CA, through AZ, NM, TX, TN, SC, NC, VA, MD, MA, VT, NH, before entering ME since December, and never had such problems or seen anything so bad. Even if we tried to add up all the minor things, from all campgrounds we have been in for 13 years full timing, they would not have equaled "Natural High in Lebanon ME... IT is a shame, if it had been kept up even half as much, like the plumbing and pool, the park itself is in a beautiful forest area. But we will never return. We camped in a Motorhome.

Thousand Trails / Pio Pico, Jamul, California

Date of Stay: February, 2007 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

If you enjoy parks in a very natural environment, this is one of interest to you. You can even get to spend a free two nights here, as I did to check it out. Cellphone service is spotty, but if you really have to make a call, you can go by any of the swimming pools and have access. Wi-Fi is available in the Adult Lodge Free, with lots of tables and chairs to sit in to use it. Pool Tables are available, and many friendly Pool players. Tennis Court up the hill, with a Basketball court. 2 large Jaccuzzi's and lot of friendly campers. I've seen a lot of "cliques" in campgrounds, but there are none here. It is close to the border, but we felt safe, as the Border Patrol comes though the campground on a regular basis. There is a well equiped store, we had a slight leak in our grey tank, and found a package of stuff that could repair gas tanks here. It instantly stopped the leak. They allow dogs and cats here, but in my entire stay, never noticed a dog barking but once, for a short time. But, we did hear Coyote's calling in the hills, and it was very enjoyable. Something you do not experience in many campgrounds. We camped at Thousand Trails / Pio Pico in a Motorhome.

Catalina Spa RV Resort, Desert Hot Springs, California

Date of Stay: January, 2007 - $8.00

We paid $8 to stay here, because we are members of Coast to Coast. We only intended to here a few days, but so enjoyed the Mineral Spa (about 15 x 25 feet, so stayed longer. Best thing about it, we feel there were benefits from the mineral water, but there is no chemical smell or sulpher smell. The water is changed frequently, so it feels clean in spite of the fact no chlorine is used. If I remember correctly, the water is completely changed about 7 or more times per hour. Many spas are too hot for me, this one is about 104 degrees, so comfortable. Roads are paved, a bit rough in a few places, but no problem for our RV or any we saw. All sites that I saw are back in, but some may be pull through as we didnt look at all of them. The sites are sand, with a cement patio. Our site was smaller than some, probably would hold only a 30' RV, but we chose it for trees. Power, water, sewer connections were conveniently located. There are two nice pool areas. We used the one by the store the most, as it was closer to our site. Close enough to walk in our bare feet. The site was lined with trees on one side, and bushes about 7-8 feet high on the other, so we felt it was very private. Fishing is allowed in the stream, we don't fish, but watched a boy about 14 fishing and he caught three fish while we were watching. Believe it may be stocked, but didn't inquire. We will be coming back here, on our way back home from this trip. We camped at Catalina Spa RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Hidden Valley RV Resort, Tijeras, New Mexico

Date of Stay: July, 2006 - $8.00

We stayed here as Coast to Coast members, so it was the standard rate. On the way back from IL, when we arrived in Sante Fe NM, we stop for food in the Super Walmart. Talking with someone there, they mentioned what an interesting drive it was down Route 14. It went though old towns, much like they were back in the 1899's, so we decided to take a side trip. The drive was interesting, and slow, so decided to stay the night here. Mainly looking for a place to stay to rest for the night. The Management was very helpful, even though we were late arrivals, we called, and they left a note, and map, etc on a ledge at the store for us. It was a good place to stop for the night, but the site we were in was quite narrow, and on a steep hill. The site we were on was so narrow, RVs with slides on either side of us were so close we felt uncomfortable. On the right where our door is, we had less than 3 feet from the slide. On the right, almost so close when hooking up the elec, water, and sewer it was less than 2 feet away. There were many signs warning of Rattlesnakes, but we did not see any. There were loads of rabbits on both roads in front and back of our RV. We didnt stay long enough to meet many people, but there seemed to be full timers on either side of us. Sites were neat and clean for all full timers we saw. We would stay here in the future, as it looked as if at the bottom of the hill we were on, the campsites were larger. They may have put us on this site, as we were not staying long. Campground was attractive, lots of flowers, bushes, etc and far from the "paved parking lots" which I will not stay in... We want to come back, and spend more time on Route 14 exploring the old mining towns there. We camped at Hidden Valley RV Resort in a Motorhome.
