Verde Valley RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails), Cottonwood, Arizona

Date of Stay: December, 2017 - $78.00
Overall Rating:

No reliable wi-fi or Verizon cell access here - but I am not complaining about that! We were here for a full 7 days. The best sites are the single camper ones. Pull thru sites not private. Quiet, clean, with interesting small hike to the Valley Verde River. Great staff, very knowledgeable and courteous, and the long term residents are wonderful. Laundry, game room, kids areas, pool/spa, all clean and well lit and run. Great place to stay if you want to take a day trip to Sedona, Jerome, Montezuma's Castle, Cliff Castle, or nearby Old Town Cottonwood/Clarkdale - all of which are great little local watering pubs, artistic hubs, and memorable sights. The park itself is near a gas station just down the main hwy at Camp Verde, and the Walmart nearby is about 2-3 miles down the same road, very large and has all you need. 24/7 CVS is near also convenient and was open during Christmas Day. The park does not have night time lighting so bring a flashlight/headlamp, the sites are not paved, so bring a doormat, and levelers also. If going in winter like we did, keep the water at a slow drip from all your faucets all night to keep your pipes from freezing over!And make sure when you leave the water stays running a tiny bit at the hookup. We camped at Verde Valley RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

In winter - keep all faucets inc the outside spigot at a drip when disconnecting. Don't give away your gate code for security purposes. Cutest quail watching in the park, they are small birds w red fans on their heads and black/white spots. No guns allowed but ok in your trailer only. Road in/out is hilly. Bring bikes to get around the park, it's big. Hiking trails are great at the park. Sedona, Jerome, Old Towns Cottonwood/Clarkdale, and Montezuma, Cliff Castle casino, great. Catch an RV show!

Lilac Oaks Campground, Valley Center, California

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

Took our camper out for its maiden voyage here. This place is such a lush little hidden gem right in San Diego. The park itself has three small ponds which are mosquito treated, and the ducks and swans are gorgeous there. They also sound hilarious. The lakeside spot was perfect, great drive thru spots open. The pool is clean and a hub for family and kids. Lots of residents here but they're very friendly. There's an easy hike if you walk to the back of the park and under the gate that rewards you with gorgeous views of Palomar and a few other lovely surprises. There's many old Oak trees and lots of shaded picnic tables. A small church group meets there in a natural outdoor amphitheater, walk up past it and you'll be rewarded with a serene, crystal pond that perfectly reflects all the trees and skies. The camp hostess is a local and she is very professional, knowledgeable, and friendly, and supportive. Note: the drive to get there is pretty tight and windy so sway bars help a lot. If you miss the turnout for the camp entrance don't worry there is a place for you to make a u turn with your rig albeit 3-4 miles down the road both ways. Watch out for military vehicles. We camped at Lilac Oaks Campground in a Travel Trailer.
