Delta Shores Resort and Marina, Isleton, California

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

Love this place. Good out-of-the-way retreat. Take your time on the road coming off Rt. 12 - very twisty. Sites are all grass and most lower than the gravel road so might be very mushy with a lot of rain. The park is much lower than the levee which supports Brannan Isle Rd., if that means anything. Only a handful of sites are 50 amp but you get to choose your own site. The Southwest sites are fairly wooded making satellite dishes useless unless they are portable. Stay on the North side if you have a mounted satellite dish. Water tests at about 520 ppm, well water - bring your own water and ice. Oddly, water not too hard but softener helps. Half of the park is separated for residents. Put pads, blocks, or wood down before leveling or you will sink. Re-level after a day. We camped at Delta Shores Resort and Marina in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

An hour before sunset, drive Brannan Isle Road south a few miles, then come back to BW Resort and keep your eyes open for Great Blue Heron and Cormorant on the North side of the road. Chinese food is decent at Pinapples on Isleton. Real shopping is in Rio Vista, but all big name stores are about 12 miles West on 12.

Rancho Oso RV & Camping Resort, Santa Barbara, California

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

Too far from civilization unless that's your objective. Didn't book early enough to get a sewer site so we squeezed our 42' MH into the turkey section. It's the short term, semi-wooded camper section overrun with wild turkeys. We're fulltimers and would never have chosen this park except it was a Thousand Trails park, our first. Strike one. Gorgeous drive to the park. Treacherous drive the last five miles for our rig - or, for anyone coming our way. Not fun. If we were going there to relax in one of the non-descript sewer sites for a couple of weeks, it would have been fine. It's also a stressful drive to Santa Barbara. We camped at Rancho Oso RV & Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

Santa Cruz Ranch RV Park, Scotts Valley, California

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

Actually free, part of Thousand Trails, but still NOT worth the price. You got slides? Good luck. This park was built before slides and now they have marked out narrow sites with white lines that you are expected to stay between. The fire department requires some magic distance away from the 30 amp electric socket. After getting read the riot act, very nicely, I might add, when checking in, we still ended up in a fierce argument with her when she found we were too much over the line. After I threatened to check every RV in the park to make sure they were in the lines, she gave us a few inches of leeway. She has a truly lousy job. Thousand Trails should be ashamed of themselves. RV's with slides should not be allowed and at 42', our MH leaves our Jeep out in the road, but somehow that's ok. You also park opposite your neighbor. Horrible setup. We test the water. Decent tap water (210ppm) and fairly soft. Thousand Trails is two for two with us so far - two losers. Don't come here. Santa Cruz is nothing anyway. The boardwalk is seedy. We camped at Santa Cruz Ranch RV Park in a Motorhome.

Skip Santa Cruz. Thank our camp host for ruining our experience and influencing yours. You hear that Santa Cruz City Council? This place is poorly run.

Yanks RV Resort, Greenfield, California

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $46.00
Overall Rating:

Absolutely beautiful park, five years old. Well done. Sites are immaculate, nicely spaced, concrete patio, grass and wood chips. Grill looked unused. Pet friendly, small but excellent dog park with credit card dog wash. The negative - just one, really, the wind. The park is in an open field and the wind can be a factor in your experience. It's also pretty nowhere. Otherwise, great park. We camped at Yanks RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

You must go to Pinnacles National Park and take the 2.6 mile hike, including the cave section. Bring a high powered flashlight, not phone flashlights. The cave is pitch black requiring scrambling and crawling over wet rocks. Wear good hiking shoes. My artificial hip and fused back made it. You can. Also, if it's your thing, drive past the skunk-smelling grow operation about a half mile to the southwest. Then drive to Carmel through the mountains.

Morro Dunes RV Park, Morro Bay, California

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $46.00
Overall Rating:

We booked our stay pretty late and got stuck in the last row with a view of the dumpsters and an RV storage lot. The front cul-de-sac sites are for smaller RV's. Our 42' MH would not fit there. If passing through, and we loved the area and location of the park, we would stay again but only if we could get in the second row, facing Morro Rock. The park is directly across the street from state beaches - dog friendly left only. Nice bike path to the big rock and adjacent beach. Again, super location. We camped at Morro Dunes RV Park in a Motorhome.

Less than a mile to the harbor and shops. The bike path is great. Lots of places to eat. Shopping, Safeway and fast food, is up the hill a mile or so, difficult bike ride - drive. Don't miss eating at Taco Temple up the road a bit. Drive up Route 1 as far as you have time. As of April 4, 2018, it was closed (mudslide) a few feet beyond the Salmon Creek Falls trailhead. Fabulous views at that point and back a few miles. Skip Hearst Castle.

Antelope Valley Fairgrounds, Lancaster, California

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

We came for the LA County Air show so it was pretty full but the manager still got us into a FHU, 50amp site for our 42' MH. The air show is just a couple of miles away and some folks just put chairs in the field outside the park to watch. Spring for the fifteen bucks or whatever it was for the show. The RV park is just a converted parking lot next to the fairgrounds. Good overnighter or for whatever else might bring you to the area. Good value, clean, and safe. We camped at Antelope Valley Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The poppies were not yet in bloom at the state park about 15 miles away. It's probably beautiful in April. Edwards Air Force base is just a few miles away - we heard sonic booms two mornings in a row. Never saw the source. At the end of March is the LA County Air show at an airport about three miles away. Perfect place to stay.

Sweetwater Summit Regional Park, Bonita, California

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Large sites, huge separation, seems like everyone has a view over a valley of highways. Only half kidding. Great county park. Seems like all San Diego "regional" parks are great. A bit far from anything but still only about a half hour from the beaches. Worth it. We camped at Sweetwater Summit Regional Park in a Motorhome.

San Diego? Too many things to list. Depends on your likes. Cabrillo National Monument, The Dog Beach (for dog owners, or Fiesta Island Park, an entire island for dogs), and The Coronado Hotel beach (to just hang out and people watch) are our favorites. If you like people, the Gaslight District, Seaport, and Little Italy are next. Balboa Park and the zoo follow. Great city.

Canyon Vistas RV Resort (55+ park), Gold Canyon, Arizona

Date of Stay: December, 2017 - $13.00
Overall Rating:

Cal-Am had a $999, three-month, Oct-Dec rate for several of their parks, so we tried it. Extra charges for monthly sewer, weekly trash pick-up (you get a big Waste-Management can), and electric. No final bill yet but I think it will end up adding about $3 a day, not bad. This is a very well managed resort with many activities. The location is about thirty miles east of PHX but the highway system in Phoenix is great. The park is on the edge of the burbs but just across the main road, US 60, is a Basha's supermarket (with liquor) in a small strip mall with a Subway, pet care, Chinese food, salon, UPS store, and a mile away is a Walgreen's, another Chinese restaurant, a pizza place, dentists, and more. Walmart, Home Depot, and all the other big stores are 8-10 miles away. Canyon Vistas is mostly flat and connected to three other snowbirds RV parks/communities so you can ride bikes for 10+ miles and not go out on the highway. There are multiple dog parks and a nice greenway walk. This park is more RV's than park models but sister park, Superstition Views has modern casitas with RV ports and Montessa, the other sibling, is all small homes. Gold Canyon RV Golf Resort also has an open gate connected but that is a Roberts Resort, with older park models. Most of the people around us have been coming here for years and most stay Oct-Mar. Just about everyone we've met are really friendly. Not a lot of cliques and lots of ways to meet people. Highly recommended if you're looking for value. We'll be back next year. We camped at Canyon Vistas RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Pizza place - eh. Chen's Chinese - very good. Basha's supermarket just ok. Go to the Fry's in Mesa. Drive the long loop up Apache Trail to Roosevelt Dam, Globe, and back, 3+hours, late afternoon. Christmas light tour - see AZCentral.com - was great. Arboretum/State Park a few miles east is worth the fee. We're kind of in the boonies here, but as I said, the highway system is excellent.

St. Mary / East Glacier KOA, St Mary, Montana

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $78.00
Overall Rating:

Several reasons we stayed in this park: 1. Other options for a 42' motorhome were not good 2. Proximity to East Glacier entrance 3. Friends from NY that we picked up in Great Falls wanted to stay close by so they rented a cabin at an exorbitant rate If you can get by the rate, it is a fine park. They put us as close to our friends as possible. Roads are gravel but level. Sites are large enough. Staff is as you would expect at a KOA. One thing - someone opened a package I had delivered there. I inquired after Amazon confirmed it had been delivered and they suddenly showed me my item. Who does that? Anyway, the park is fine. We'd stay there again. We camped at St. Mary / East Glacier KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Eat at Two Sisters, about 5 miles north. Fun place, always packed. Come with everything you expect to consume. The grocery-everything store nearby is more like a big 7-11. If you go in early summer, darkness doesn't come until after 11. Water quality is good. No need for bottled water.
