Cachuma Lake Recreation Area, Santa Barbara, California

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

While the setting with the surrounding mountains is great, the California drought and aging facilities diminish the experience. There are only a handful of 50A hookup sites and most of the 30A hookup sites need refurbishment. Many of the sites with concrete pads have cracking and crumbling concrete. Most of the W+E sites are basically dirt. The best time to visit is probably mid winter to late spring. On our recent stay, vegetation was drying out and the ground squirrel population had exploded. We camped at Cachuma Lake Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Jones Station RV Park, Mebane, North Carolina

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

This is a fairly new park in a nice rural location near Mebane, NC. They have a mix of back-in and pull-through full hookup sites. There are several sites that can handle long rigs. The roads and sites are all gravel with minor grades in some sites. There are lots of trees in and around the park. The park-provided wifi varied from slow to good. There was a fair Verizon cell signal available. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We camped at Jones Station RV Park in a Motorhome.
