Idyllwild County Park, Idyllwild, California

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

This was my Yosemite backup. When you can't get a campsite at Yosemite, you get one at Idyllwild. This campground was really good. I was able to get a really large campsite (Site 93) with plenty of room for our outdoor stuff. The map shows it as a back-in, but I got there and was able to pull through. There are decent hiking trails with trailheads extremely nearby, and the trails allow dogs. We were able to ride our bikes to the local town; we happened to be there for the Easter Egg hunt. The campsites are fairly un-level and they're marked a little haphazardly. There were community water spigots all over the place, but they were frozen for one of the mornings we were there--thawed later that afternoon. Campsites include a fire-ring/grill and a picnic table. Most of the campsites are for tents but there is a section at one end dedicated to RVs. I didn't see any Class A's. The interior roads are a little tight for big rigs. No dump station. Overall it was a quiet weekend getaway that we all really enjoyed and would happily do again. We camped at Idyllwild County Park in a Travel Trailer.

San Clemente State Beach, San Clemente, California

Date of Stay: December, 2016 - $60.00
Overall Rating:      

I've never been to San Clemente State Beach and I've lived in Southern California for 30 years. I was pleasantly surprised! We stayed in a full hookup, pull-through spot. You won't find many full hookup campgrounds this close to the beach. The site was roomy and fairly level. The spots are close to each other, but it doesn't feel crowded. There's a picnic table and a fire pit. The fire pit had tall walls that made it a little difficult to watch the fire or feel its heat when you're sitting. We wanted to visit the beach, but dogs were not allowed. It looked like it was easy access; maybe a little steep. We had to cut our trip short by 1 day. The rangers were friendly about it. They told us it'll take 6 to 8 weeks to process the refund. Hey, that's fine, I'm surprised they give you a refund for such short notice. All in all, we'll definitely be staying here again. We camped at San Clemente State Beach in a Travel Trailer.

Crystal Cove State Park - Moro Campground, Laguna Beach, California

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $77.00
Overall Rating:      

Amazing views! Staying here was an amazing experience; I highly recommend it. The sites have plenty of room between them and every one has a good view of the ocean. The RV sites are a little further away from the water so don't think you're going to fall asleep to the sound of the ocean. You'll occasionally hear it. But, you're also not right next to PCH which could be loud.

No sewer and no cable at the sites. We were able to get some over-the-air TV stations. It took a little while to find the network channels--turns out we were getting San Diego stations. We had some guests visit us. Parking is $15.

We loved it here. Looking forward to going again if I can get the reservations. We camped at Crystal Cove State Park - Moro Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Trailer Village (Concessionnaire Operated), Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $44.00
Overall Rating:      

This was my first time to the Grand Canyon and I didn't know what to expect. This campsite was good, but it didn't have a rustic, camping feeling. It was a normal campground in an extraordinary national park. But, it has full hookups! For next time I would seriously look at Mather Campground.
There are deer everywhere! It's so amazing to look out your window and see wildlife snooping around your campsite.
Try to get a site that is NOT under a tree! Our site was under a pretty oak tree, but it dropped acorns constantly! Nothing like relaxing, or trying to sleep, inside your RV and having loud acorns dropping on the roof and rattling your nerves. Cleanup wasn't very exciting either. I had to get on the roof and sweep debris while my girlfriend was pulling the slides in.
No wood burning campfires. We used our propane firepit. I didn't have room to park my tow vehicle at the site. I should have parked the trailer at one end of the pull through instead of right in the middle. That may have freed up enough room for my truck. I parked it in a small, nearby parking area. We camped at Trailer Village (Concessionnaire Operated) in a Travel Trailer.

The shuttle stop is conveniently located right outside the park. Unfortunately, we couldn't take our dogs onto the shuttle so we drove around. Parking was only a struggle at the village by the train station; everywhere else was not a problem.

Rancho Sedona RV Park, Sedona, Arizona

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $70.00
Overall Rating:      

One of the best parks we've stayed at! This is in such a great location. Our campsite butted up against the flowing creek; we could hear it. The grounds were immaculate and are maintained by a friendly crew. We stayed 2 nights and wished we could stay longer. After we posted pictures online, our friends want to come out too!
There were several rules and posted signs throughout the park. We were good with them, except No Campfires. The rules did lend themselves to a very quiet Quiet Time between 10pm and 7am.
If we lived closer we'd be visiting all the time! We camped at Rancho Sedona RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Mammoth Mountain RV Park, Mammoth Lakes, California

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $60.00
Overall Rating:      

As others have pointed out, there are 2 distinct sections to this RV park. You have your wonderful wilderness area with full hooks up and lots of room between your neighbors, and you have your asphalt area with side-by-side spaces and no sewer. I really wished we could have reserved a full hookup wilderness site, but they were all booked up for Labor Day weekend. Still, the park was a great place to go if you're planning a trip to Mammoth. Actually, from what I understand, it's the only place to go if you want hookups.

The staff I interacted with were absolutely wonderful. When our friends that were joining us had multiple tire blowouts and couldn't make it the first night of the weekend, she was very accommodating and really cared about our situation. We camped at Mammoth Mountain RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Chula Vista RV Resort, Chula Vista, California

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $100.00
Overall Rating:      

Price reflects Memorial holiday weekend rate. This is what a RV resort should be! The grounds were beautifully maintained and the staff were all friendly. We stayed here for Memorial day weekend. The place was packed! We booked late and ended up with a deluxe interior site. It was really tight and our back window looked right into the back neighbor's patio; we even got to smell their cigarette smoke. Because of the holiday, the campground had extra entertainment and activities. Everything was well-run.

The hookups were towards the back of the site and barely reached the trailer's front hookups (the cable didn't make it-oh well, we got a few OTA channels). We camped at Chula Vista RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Lake Skinner Recreation Area, Winchester, California

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

This review will be primarily for the Temecula Valley Wine and Balloon Festival camping experience. It was around $430 for the weekend for a Water/Electric site; a little more for a full hookup site. That price includes 2 combo passes to the festival. I stayed at Campsite A which was right next to the festival main entrance. That was a great location! I tried getting a full hookup spot, but those sold out instantly. At least I was able to get electricity. For the festival they opened up a huge dry camp area in the dirt lot next to campsite A. I'm guessing there were about 300 sites marked off in the dirt. If you don't mind crowded, dusty, and loud dry camping this is for you. The biggest plus camping for the festival is you don't have to deal with the traffic getting out. I've heard it can take 1 - 2 hours to get out using the one lane road, especially on Saturday night.

Our biggest complaint was the dust. With dry dirt everywhere and occasional high winds, you get dirty. I imagine during a regular stay at the campgrounds it wouldn't be too bad, but with a crowded festival it was really bad. Other complaint was not enough portable bathrooms in the campsite. There was 1 nearby and after 1 day with a full campsite...lets just say I'm glad I don't have to sit.

I'm definitely doing it again next year. We camped at Lake Skinner Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

29 Palms Golf Resort, Twentynine Palms, California

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

Stayed at a back-in site with lots of tree coverage. The pull-through spots had no trees and were a little ways from many of the amenities. There are no individual firepits. There was a community firepit, but didn't look like it was active on Saturday. Actually, there was a lot of inactivity around there. I called a day before to make a reservation, they said you won't have to there are lots of spots available--pick of the litter--and there was. The store was excellent from my limited experience. The pool looked clean, but I prefer a more resort type outdoor pool with lounges. Our primary purpose for our stay was to be in close proximity to Joshua Tree and it served its purpose perfectly. I would stay here again for its location and overall experience. We camped at 29 Palms Golf Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Pechanga RV Resort & Casino, Temecula, California

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $60.00
Overall Rating:      

What a well-run RV Resort! This was our first time staying, and it won't be our last. All the hook-ups worked flawlessly and the park was very well maintained. All the staff were friendly and eager to help. The pool and spas were immaculate with perfect water temperatures; I wish they had bar service! The dog park was a little small, but it had grass, dirt, and large pebbles. I think it's geared towards smaller dogs because the surrounding fence isn't that tall. I could imagine a larger, leaping dog can jump over it. It looks like the casino is expanding; there was major construction going on. It didn't affect the RV park.

Two gripes: 1. The cable didn't broadcast in HD. 2. Our site was kinda close to the delivery dock for the casino. We heard trucks with their back-up alarms throughout the night. We camped at Pechanga RV Resort & Casino in a Travel Trailer.

Lower Pines (NPS Campground), Yosemite National Park, California

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $26.00
Overall Rating:      

This was my first time visiting Yosemite. What a way to do it. Site selection is very important; there are definitely sites that will not fit a long trailer or prove to be too difficult to maneuver into. Pay close attention when reserving. We stayed in site #36. As you know there are no hookups; we brought a full tank of water from home and ran out on the last night. I guess we don't know how to ration water. Water is available at the bathrooms to fill up containers. Water (and a dump station) is available at North Pines across the street. I didn't see any showers. The bathrooms were a little gross. Let's just say it's good to have your own facilities on board. Generator hours are 7 - 9am, 12 - 2pm, and 5 - 7pm. Everybody pays a $25 park access fee for the week just to enter the park. Lower Pines is very well located in the Valley. Lots of trails are nearby as well as the 2 villages. We camped at Lower Pines (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Pacific Dunes Ranch and RV Resort, Oceano, California

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $65.00
Overall Rating:      

Those are some tight pull-through spaces. It doesn't help there's a 4ft dead palm tree stump where our slide out goes--it barely cleared it. Other than that, our experience was great.

We picked this campground because of its location and the positive reviews on rvparkreviews. Our friends brought their RZR and we towed it a couple of miles to the dunes for a day of off-roading. No fire pits. Avoid sites near the bathrooms due to sewer smells. Didn't realize there was cable until the last hour we were leaving. We're new to RV'ing and didn't know the cable outlet was on the pedestal. We camped at Pacific Dunes Ranch and RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Canyon RV Park, Anaheim, California

Date of Stay: January, 2016 - $60.00
Overall Rating:      

We just got a new trailer and we decided to try out a local campsite for our inaugural adventure. We picked site #123. It backed up to the Santa Ana River and we had plenty of room around us. We loved looking out of the window and seeing the wilderness (and a part of the 91 freeway). I felt the hookups were really far back on the site; my water hose didn't reach. Luckily the office had a 50' hose and it wasn't a rip off. Ended up backing up the trailer some more the next day because the sewer hose wouldn't reach either. I guess I'm still learning.

The park was nice to stroll through with the dogs. There's a really cool rope course, benches along the river, access to the Santa Ana Bike Trail, and a classic car show on the Sunday we were there. We didn't use the pool. We camped at Canyon RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
