Redwoods River Resort, Leggett, California

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

You'll camp beneath the redwoods. This isn't a large park, but it does accommodate campsites, motorhome sites, trailers, rental cottages and lodge rooms. This is an older park that is hard to locate. It attracts family gatherings and is more rustic than modern. The staff are friendly and helpful. The swimming pool was packed with kids having a great time as was kids at "Fort McCaffison", an elaborate, 2-story fortress-playground. There is no off-leash dog area, but there is plenty of wooded areas to walk your dog. The sites are large. On one side of the park you'll get some road noise from scenic 101, on the other you'll be where the cliff drops hundreds of yards to the river (there's a fence behind the RV sites). The "350" yard trail to the river is steep. It wasn't going down that worried me as much as struggling back up. Near the park is a mostly paved road that goes to the river the locals can direct you to. The Pub is small and cozy with friendly campers hanging out. We started out staying for two days and decided to lay back under the redwoods for an extra day. We camped at Redwoods River Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Visit Avenue of the Giants (redwoods), and be sure to drive through the state park. You start out through an area that is not the actual park. There are several small towns the road used to connect, most with local restaurants and shops.

Pomo RV Park & Campground, Fort Bragg, California

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

Very pretty woodland park setting. Immaculately cared for. Most spaces are level and surrounded by trees with ample room and privacy. If you stand under the cell antennas at the main bathrooms and laundry building you will get a bar of Verizon cellular signal -- not so much in the rest of the park. Cable is strong with about 50 channels. WiFi is non-existent. There is an impressive fish-cleaning area with shaded structure and equipment that looked impressive that we didn't use. They also have a well maintained pump out station for sites that lack sewers. This is the RV park to go to if you want a quiet, woodland place for adults to calmly stay within a very controlled environment. It does not have typical recreational facilities, like a pool, or kids playgrounds, which is actually a quiet benefit for a senior couple traveling. Nor does it have a dog area. The ladies who work at the desk are friendly and helpful. The first site we occupied included a wasp nest. When we brought it to the attention of the office, a grounds keeper attempted to just use an off the shelf aerosol can of wasp, hornet killer with little impact. One of the managers resprayed it and then covered it with dirt. After mentioning that the site was still engulfed with wasps, he explained that hundreds of wasps will still return for days. Not anything we wanted to be near. The front desk ladies changed us to another site, which lacked sewer but was tucked into the woods. Those who appeared to be owners or managers were less friendly and made me feel more like an imposition than a guest. However, the RV park is very lovely and beautifully cared for. We camped at Pomo RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

The Skunk Train is fun, especially if you stay on the open-air car. It is dog-friendly and charge to bring your dog along for the ride. Service dogs ride for free. The Sea Valley Cafe has good food at fair prices, as do all the cafes we ate at. The Mendocino Candy Company has terrific treats. It's fudge is fabulous.

San Francisco North / Petaluma KOA, Petaluma, California

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $88.00
Overall Rating:      

This is the KOA that is the embodiment of KOA's national advertising. It's got something for everyone. It's a kids paradise. It's all about fun. There are large class A's and tents, and everything in between. Charming cottages and what looks like mini/lodges. It's a huge property. Even has its own petting zoo. Activities abound.

Site utilities are in great shape. The pool is huge. The WiFi actually worked really well for us, and there was no difficulty getting connected. Even with the crowds on the 4th of July weekend, check in was efficient and calm. It's also dog friendly with a large clean dog park. This is probably one of the highest occupancy KOAs. With so much going on, what makes it work so well is the extraordinary staff headed by its professional manager. Many RV parks run like a hockey team. This gentleman manages the park like a ballet. The staff goes over and above to enhance the campers experience. Most important, it is an owner-run KOA, and the owner is onsite, there to assist and keep things right. These are people that care.

Now keep in mind that this is a KOA with kids everywhere having a noisy great time, and that most sites are close to one another. It's also not inexpensive. But it's well organized and if you want the full KOA experience, this is the park to go to. We arrived without kids, but were captivated by their enjoyment. We found Petaluma to be an absolutely charming town, and we were close enough to San Francisco. They have organized tours of the city. We camped at San Francisco North / Petaluma KOA in a Motorhome.

Petaluma is a charming town 3.5 miles away. Sonoma is nearby. They offer all-day San Francisco sight seeing tours. Check the park map and get a more quiet space in the higher area.

Horspitality RV Resort, Wickenburg, Arizona

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

We were going to stay at another RV park that is highly rated here, until we saw it. So we drove out and found this very inviting park nearby. If you're bringing a horse this is the park to be at. They have stalls and facilities for over 150 horses. Wickenburg is a rodeo and horse town. We were just passing through on our way to Sedona and wanted a stopover. All things considered this is a nice park that's well run and was good for an overnight stay. Must services catered to the horse fancier so didn't interest us. The entire park is well maintained. It has ample pull through sites. We camped at Horspitality RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Happy Traveler RV Park, Palm Springs, California

Date of Stay: December, 2015 - $55.00
Overall Rating:      

If you want to stay right in Palm Springs, this is the one choice available. It's a block from the BUZ line which is a free trolley that runs through the town every 15 minutes 11 am to 1 am, Monday -Thursday and is air-conditioned and pet friendly. The park is adult only, except from April 15 thru October 15 when kids are welcome.

As others have pointed out, the sites are not deep and there are no drive throughs. It is astonishing how large 5th wheels and class A motor homes are shoe-horned into sites together with accompanying vehicles. We had no trouble pulling in with our 24 foot Class B Airstream Interstate.

The high hedges between sites afford unexpected privacy. WiFi Is adequate for email and browsing online, but not for streaming. Lots of washers but only two dryers, so plan ahead if you want to use the laundromat.

The manager is extremely helpful and friendly.

All in all, this is a smaller nice park that has a ten-star location. We camped at Happy Traveler RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There's a terrific new restaurant that offers Asian fusion called the Rooster-Pig that's on the BUZ line route. Yelp reviews are mostly 5 stars and we genuinely loved eating there. It's a real dollar value. If you want to pick up food or other items, many take the BUZ line free bus to Ralphs supermarket. There's a convenience store across a vacant lot behind the pool fence we found, "convenient."

Leapin' Lizard RV Ranch, Borrego Springs, California

Date of Stay: December, 2015 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

This is the rare RV jewel of a small park you imagine being lucky enough to find someday. We absolutely, positively love this park. It's owned and managed by the friendliest and most helpful owner/builder/managers (married couple) who are onsite 24/7.

The bathrooms and showers are as sparkling clean as a hospital operating room! Really - the owners also use it. Sites are wide with ample room and in-park wide roads to pull into the sites (although there are no pull-through sites). In-site hookups are very well placed and include water, electricity and sewerage. You are separated with lovely trees (rare in a desert location) from your neighbors. Most important for this world famous off-roader desert paradise, ATV vehicles are quietly pushed into this RV park making it the only calm RV park near the best off-roading. There's a fenced 75 acre desert park adjacent to and owned by the park that's absolutely delightful to wander in without fear of either getting lost or being run over.

They are completing the new pool that should be open around March 2015. They have the area's only cellphone booster tower (converted from the now flag-less flag pole you sit around to get good Verizon reception) and limited Wifi from 8am to 6pm (absolutely no streaming) but great to have. We camped at Leapin' Lizard RV Ranch in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

You must see the astonishing number of large metal sculptures of prehistoric animals (and a desert sea serpent that crosses the road) near Borrega Springs. They were donated and maintained by the founder and owner of Avery Labels.
