Mendocino County Fairgrounds, Boonville, California

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Dolly has been the camp host there since 2008 and cares about the guest experience and how everything looks and works. She is very attentive and everything in the park works well. It's basically a large, open field with a couple of trees and hook-ups. The park is next to Pennyroyal Farms who have a dog that barked the entire night. They also have goats and sheep which make wonderful cheese and help with the wine, too. Showers are located in a building approaching the fairgrounds and you have to get (and remember to return) a key from Dolly. Also, this place is cash only. Period. No on-line reservations - you call her and she tells you "you're set." That's it. Forget any advance confirmation or emails. It's a phone call. Welcome to 1971. We camped at Mendocino County Fairgrounds in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Lots of great wineries as well as Anderson Valley Brewing - world-class brewery within walking distance. Also Pennyroyal Farms is next door with wonderful goat cheese and wines. A quaint place with its own language - Boontling. Visit in Fall when it's beautifully green. Scharffenberger Cellars is down the road and has world-class sparkling wines as well and the Bewildered Pig is a fancy dining spot.

Pomo RV Park & Campground, Fort Bragg, California

Date of Stay: January, 2017 - $49.00
Overall Rating:      

This is exactly what I think a campground should be - each site is sort of its own oasis in the park surrounded by trees. This place is immaculately maintained and just beautiful. It's moments away from the beach and right between the resort towns of Fort Bragg and Mendocino. The sites all have their own fire pits (old washing machine drums on old truck wheels) and nice picnic tables. The setting is perfect. However, they have absolutely no provision to take credit cards so I couldn't buy the propane that was on site nor the firewood. They have no digital reservations system and they ask you to send a check in advance to cover your stay. Hello - I do not have checks, it's 2017. They actually have a working telephone booth on the property. We camped at Pomo RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Hit Roundman's Smoke House in Fort Bragg for incredible smoked meets or North Coast Brewery and have a Pranqster Belgian Beer - great stuff. Depending on the time of year there is whale watching also and do not miss an opportunity to ride the historic "Skunk" Train - an old logging train that now serves tourists and takes you through the redwoods. Also, the town of Mendocino is another great place to stroll and is just picturesque. There is almost too much to do near this campground.

Cal Expo RV Park, Sacramento, California

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

Stayed during the International Sportsman's Expo in January of 2017. Basically we stayed near the main building so we were camping on blacktop. This campground is ideal if you are going to CalExpo (fairgrounds) or have business in the area. There's nothing quaint or fancy about it, but the showers and restroom facilities are spotless and there is no charge to use them for guests of the campground. I also thought that the WiFi was outstanding - I was watching Hulu from inside the trailer with no glitches whatsoever. So this is a solid campground for those who are in Sacramento on business. It's also fairly centrally located and Sacramento offers a ton of things to do. I love the Old Town area which isn't far at all. While we stayed there was a ridiculous wind storm and crazy rains and this made me happy that there weren't any trees to speak of hanging over the RVs. I also saw a dog area while I was there but ours wasn't with us so I didn't look carefully. Our site was right on a dip in the blacktop for drainage so I got to have my shoes washed while I got in and out of the truck, but this was a truly unusual storm so this isn't a normal occurrence. We camped at Cal Expo RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Visit Old Town Sacramento or the State Capital while there. The Sacramento Railroad Museum is of particular note and it's outstanding!

Clearlake Campground (formerly Shady Acres Campground), Clearlake, California

Date of Stay: January, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is right on Cache Creek with kayaks, a boat launch, decks right on the lake and lots of camping/RV spaces right on the lake. The owners are really friendly folk and the park is very well maintained. One of the family members who owns the park is really into vintage RVs so she has been buying up vintage travel trailers with the vision of converting them to overnight accommodations for those who don't have their own travel trailer. We've stayed in both the vintage travel trailers and, now, our own travel trailer. It's so nice to stay right on the lake and the sites are clean with all the power/water facilities working as they should. You can rent kayaks and rowboats right there if you choose. There is also a little park where you can sit under the trees on a beautiful lawn and watch the wildlife at play (this place is a birder's paradise). For those who wish, there is a swimming pool and their own little store offers ice cream, ice and fishing essentials. We've stayed here several times and always had a great time with first-rate service. We camped at Clearlake Campground (formerly Shady Acres Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

There's also a Walmart literally less than a mile away along with several fast food joints. The town of Clearlake is right nearby with some quaint eateries along with a historic miniature golf course. Definitely go to Tatonkaland miniature golf course and, for those who love hiking or history, there is plenty of both in close-by towns. There's an 1890s school museum in Lower Lake (they'll even let you ring the bell!) and a vintage stage stop museum further away. Also, for hikers, Anderson Marsh offers great weekend hikes and over 200 kinds of birds fly through there during the course of a year. Of course fishing and boating on Clear Lake is a bonus as well.
