Carpinteria State Beach, Carpinteria, California

Date of Stay: February, 2007 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

You cannot beat this site when it comes to location. Every spot is just short walk to the beach. We could hear the waves crashing on the beach from our RV which was wonderful. The bathrooms were very clean and the park itself was clean. Park Rangers were everywhere and camp hosts also checked the park quite often adding a real sense of security to the place. We had noisy neighbors the first night, but after we complained to the camp host, they were virtually silent the next night. Only drawbacks to this campsite is the RV spots are VERY close together. We watched one guy in a 5th wheel take nearly a half an hour to back his trailer into his spot. He came late and night and nearly all the spots were full (yes, even in February) and so he had a tough time maneuvering into his spot. You are literally 5 feet from you neighbor, but we found everyone to be very friendly so it was OK. There is also no camp store, so come prepared! Overall, we had a great time and would recommend this campsite - if you can get a reservation! We camped at Carpinteria State Beach in a Motorhome.

Valencia Travel Village, Castaic, California

Date of Stay: January, 2007 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

We thoroughly enjoyed Valencia Travel Village. The spots were pull-throughs and they had complete hook-ups including cable. Each spot has a picnic table, but not much grass space. You are approx. 10-12 feet away from the rig on either side of you. The park was extremely quiet and well maintained. The bathrooms smelled like Pinesol everytime we used them. There is also a lot to do at this park including: shuffleboard, horseshoes, dog run, playground, full size pool, wading pool (it was empty), camp store, laundry facilities, dump station, propane for sale and you can even take a hike in the wash. The campground has trees, but I imagine it would still be very hot in the summer. It is also in between mountains, so it serves as kind of a wind-tunnel! We also saw the Sheriff's department driving through the campground twice on what seemed like a friendly patrol. The campground has an area specifically for short-timers and most of the rigs that were near us were very nice. If you stray out of your area one way or the other, then you will run into the long-timers area which does have a few junky rigs, or nice rigs with junk all around them. Nothing horrendous, but worth mentioning. Overall, we really liked this part and would return. It was clean, quiet and had lots to do. We camped at Valencia Travel Village in a Motorhome.
