Emma Wood State Beach, Ventura, California

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

Hey. It is what it is. Totally dry camping on beach front dirt. Sandwiched between a rocky beach and the railroad tracks on a piece of what's left from what was US Hwy 1, PCH. WE LOVE IT but it does lack alot that you get in the fancy places. Ranger checks daily to see that all vehicles have tags indicating that you are paid up and otherwise they leave you alone. We camped at Emma Wood State Beach in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Don't go there unless you are fully self contained, have plenty of water and holding capacity for you stay. GOD only knows where you would have to go for water or dump. Grocery and the West end of old Ventura just a couple miles walk and 3-4 miles to drive. Too many vagrants there but a modern Vons.

Lake Skinner Recreation Area, Winchester, California

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $31.00
Overall Rating:      

Stayed on site B. Nice spot with some shade but our solar still going strong. Backed up to the grass looking across at Site C. Nice little camp store. Snack bar. Play areas for kids but we could care less. Really nice level paved roads to ride bikes all over the park. We also stay there annually in a special area for out group during the Balloon and Wine Festival and that is really great as well. Week nights low level of folks and low level of noise. Generally nice quiet evenings. Weekends not so much quiet but still nice. We camped at Lake Skinner Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Great Southern California wine valley. Dozens of wineries and cute old town back several miles to the West in Temecula. Active hot air balloon companies roam the valley at sunrise but mostly not visible from the camp as they tend to launch from wineries to the West of Camp and land West of camp. Worth getting up early and driving to the area of Wilson Creek or Ponte wineries to see the balloons. Remember sunrise. They are done by two hours after the sun comes up.
