Senior Federal Parks Pass discount on entire camping/train to the canyon package. This is not a campground: rather a nicely appointed, newer RV park located right in the town of Williams. Concrete pads and interior roads. Pull through and back-in sites available. Clean, neat and grassy between sites. All the bells and whistles: full hook-ups, pool, cable TV, pet resort, fitness room, pub. Some train noise from the spur line which borders one side, and hiway on the other side of this park. No problem with satellite TV, Verizon or aircard reception. We visited to enjoy the entire railroad experience to/from the canyon. Would check out other parks with our next trip.

Date of Stay:

Paid cash. (Not comfortable using a credit card here.) Hassle to use this park. Check-in at a busy service station on one side of I-40. Not much room to park your rig. Gain keys to padlocks (sewer, water, electricity) when you pay. The actual RV park is on other side of the interstate, with access via a service road. No attendants at the park when we were here. Neatly laid out, long, concrete pads and interior roads. Full hook-ups, 50 amps. Place looks new, but absolutely deserted. Native plants fighting it out with weeds in the islands between pads. No problem with satellite TV, Verizon and aircard reception. Traveler's park. Not much ambiance. Drop the keys in an unlocked (!)drop box on your way out. (Glad we paid cash.)

Date of Stay:

$37.40 overnight, with senior discount. Fabulously friendly front office team. Felt like home. Could stay here awhile. Requested a satellite friendly area. Led to long, pull through site with full hook-ups. Nicely treed, clean, neatly trimmed, grassy. Verizon and aircard worked without a problem. Unhook your towcar: there are plenty of restaurants and other services in this area. Loved this little gem along I-25 south.

Date of Stay:

Triple A discounted rate. Nicely level, long pull through site with a clear view of the southern sky. Asked for, and had no problem with satellite TV, Verizon and aircard reception. Been here before. Can always count on friendly service at this neatly managed park along I-80. Good travelers park, however one could stay awhile as a base camp to explore.

Date of Stay:

Overnight Good Sam Park. New, sweetheart owners from Mississippi. Acres of neatly mown grass with some trees. They are working on improvements to this older park. Has eight, pull through, 50 amp, full hook-up slots: narrow and long, however perfect for overnighters. Park has side-by-side and other sites for longer term camping. Tent sites, lake fishing. Office and supplies (including ice cream freezer). No problems with satellite TV, Verizon cell phone or aircard reception. Did I mention how friendly these folks were? Truly an oasis on I-80.

Date of Stay:

Looks new. Full hook-up, 50amp, cable TV, picnic table, built in BBQ stand. Pull through and back-in sites: clean, neat and no fuss. Travelers park. Not much ambiance for a destination. Shuttles to the Cabela's store. Good Sam, AARP, Triple A and Cabela's Club discounts. This will be a reliable stop for future trips cross country.

Date of Stay:

Called roughly 20 minutes before arrival. Friendly guy on the phone. Easy to locate, off service road using exit 34. Big, covered wagon sign. Met by friendly lady. Good Sam and cash discounts. Quiet, neatly laid out spaces, mown grass, small trees. Parked easily in a pull through site, #27 in the back. Long and wide, 50amps. Full hook-ups plus cable TV, picnic table. Verizon phone and aircard weak but functional. Woke to magpies and smell of blooming lilacs. Park nearly full of 5'vers that appear to be seasonal workers. Quiet, peaceful. Could stay here awhile. Asked about closest petrol. Was directed the correct way around the block to a local station.

Date of Stay:

Old KOA format. Called ahead while traveling 1-15. Friendly lady at office noted they would be closed by the estimated time of our arrival, but come on in and pick any site. Far north end of town. Small sign. Doesn't get much traffic. Was met at 6pm by friendly guy who pointed out a nice, long pull-through site: 17B. 50amp on pedestal 17A. Packed gravel mixed with grass pads. Jumbled looking, rough around the edges, older park: but it was quiet. Couple longer term rigs here. Rough interior roads. Verizon and aircard worked fine.

Date of Stay:

Just magnificent setting, roughly 15 miles east of Temecula, on hiway 79. A classy, well managed, golf-themed resort with acres of grass, landscaping, ponds and fountains; nested in rugged, high desert ambiance. This is a high end, ownership park that rents full hook-up, concrete pad sites. There are rig restrictions (age, length); no toy-haulers, ATVs, campfires or tent camping available. Originally owned by Outdoor Resorts, who now plays a minor role in the resort. Strongly recommend the homeowner association: fairwayassociates.com website for the best rental opportunities. Easy going, friendly staff and homeowners team. Robust hook-ups, 100 amps at each pedestal (50, 30, 20 amp plugs), cable TV, even DSL hook-ups for longer-term stays. Verizon cel, air-card and satellite TV all worked with ease. Plenty of absentee owners translates to a wide variety of rental sites: all are back-ins, plus a handful of pull-ins on a mesa overlooking the course. Basic concrete pads to over-the-top, outdoor entertainment centers range from $450 to $850 month at this post. Daily and weekly site rentals also available. Posted rate based on our monthly plus electricity. Resort has multiple spotless laundry, pools and restroom/showers strategically located about. Has a great recreation center with workout room, honor library, activity rooms, etc. Propane available onsite for the portable pots; RVs have access to a local delivery service. Little market recently changed hands: working on a liquor license and increased supplies. Lakeside Cafe is open Thursday through Sunday. All kinds of walking opportunities: with or without a dog. Has a nice off-leash dog area as well. This is back country: coyote, raccoons, crows are kept in check by meticulous resort trash management. Plenty of birdwatching and social activities (see each month's activities on-line). Easy to join in, or just enjoy the mild weather and sunsets in solitude: your choice. We will be back.

Date of Stay:

Dry camping right on the beach: the actual number of 'campsites' is just a guess. You are literally at the edge of the Pacific Ocean. Camping on the beach, with miles of fabulous sand dunes to your back. Access is roughly one mile south of Pier Avenue, or 3 miles south of Grand Avenue off hiway 1. Just south of Pismo Beach. There are good instructional signs at these access points. Check out the website for details. This is ATV heaven in So Cal, so be prepared. Can be crowded at holidays. Can be windy too with blowing sand and salt spray. Not a place to take a heavy 45-foot monster rig, but for the more nimble campers, the views are just magnificent.

Date of Stay:

Good Sam rate for 50 amp full hookups. Silver Spur Riding Stables are next door. Robust well water but use a filter. Not a fussy park, a little rough and rundown around the edges. It backs up to the Oceano State Dunes protected areas. Divided into two levels. The lower is wind protected with easy access to the office, meeting areas and the better facilities. The upper area has better views and access for walking those magnificent dunes. Large enough pull through sites for the most extravagantly long rigs and trailers. Back-in sites are just too narrow: they'll situate you every other site when possible. No dune buggy, ATV or off-road vehicles allowed to run in this park as there is no direct access to the beach. Must be trailered to beach access areas just down highway. Generally not as packed over the high summer season, as there are no pools, playgrounds or the direct beach access folks generally seek out when traveling with children. Laundry, restrooms, showers can be marginal. There are long term seasonals who (with the exception of one) keep their sites nice with gardens and bird feeding stations. We extended into monthly increments, cutting the nightly price nearly in half.

Good Sam rate for 30amp full hookups. Verizon cell and aircard reception was good. Green, clean and neat. Easy access on highway 1, however the mostly local traffic dies down in the evenings. Amtrak runs by here someplace, but was far enough away to not be an issue. Newer owners wrestling with upgrading this small, older park to meet requirements of modern RVs. Owners and hostesses were customer oriented, friendly and delightful. Had problems with the 30amp power box and they had it replaced pronto. There are only a couple 50amps sites: generally the larger sites which are all taken by long-term seasonals. Located far enough from the beach to support grass, lush bushes, trees: very welcoming. Pick your site carefully if you need satellite access. Office has some supplies, but one is close enough to Grover Beach, Arroyo Grande and Pismo Beach to shop til you drop. Clean pool, laundry, showers and restrooms at this gated park. Even has a child friendly sandbox play area. We extended our stay and moved sites several times. All sites include a table and fire ring, but are just too close for all the paraphenalia that most folks want to enjoy when camping. Strongly recommend removing each fire-pit and impliment a dozen COMMUNITY fire rings scattered strategically about. Would foster better RV camper relations.

Good Sam Rate for 50 amp, full hook-ups. Good power and water. Satellite friendly (tie that dish down, beach winds). Verizon cell and air-card reception. Just a delightful, friendly front office team! Good news here: one is out of ear shot from the local high school, cement and water treatment plants up the road. Then there is the fact this park is located across the dead-end street from the dunes, beach and unsurpassed views of Morro Rock. Summers are slammed here so they limit stays for 14 days in 14 days out. Would love to revisit at a slower pace in the spring, fall or winter. Another fine older park with sites set up for 1940's rigs, however they have carved out nice long spaces for big rigs, and little cul-de-sacs for those of us who can accommodate back-ins. It works as long as your neighbor isn't set on nightly bon fires. No self respecting grass will survive this close to a windy beach, so the pads are packed sand/gravel with paved streets. Laundry, restrooms, showers were ridden hard, but everything worked and were kept clean. No mean feat with this kind of summer traffic. Will be back.

Price noted was a full hook-up, 50amp, double wide site. (Single wide sites $40/night). No discounts, weekly, or monthly rates from May through October. Good power and water. Satellite friendly, Verizon cell and air-card reception without issue. Park is situated on both sides of Atascadero Road, which also borders a High School, water treatment plant, cement plant and ultimately dead-ends, 3 blocks away at yet another RV park and the beach. Relatively quiet except when school is in session. School PA system announcements are hilarious: learned all about senior ditch day. Then there was the grossly out of tune band practice sessions. No sleeping-in here. This is an unique park as it is relatively new: sites are laid out for RV's built in this century. Generously wide and long with appropriately positioned hook-ups and heavy duty tables. Fire rings are available. However, the all gravel, no grass matrix yields a kind of industrial feel. Only ambiance is around the park's perimeter with well cared for trees, shrubs and flower beds. No dog doo here. Walk those puppies along the paved interior streets or outside the park. Neat and clean office, laundry, bathroom, shower area combined in couple park models at the entrance. Friendly host who has no experience RV'ing. Will bounce you around from site to site for longer stays.

Took advantage of their early May pre-season special: pay 3 days and get the 4th free for full hook-ups 50amps. Has satellite friendly sites, good power, water and Verizon cell and aircard access with no drama. What a deliciously cool location, with easy access from old highway 1 or off 101 through the town of Pismo. Probably the most classy resort in the greater area, high standards with ownership shares. Very professional and friendly front desk team. Gated resort with spotless laundry, bathrooms, showers. Has meeting rooms, cafe, a mini-store with robust selection of gifts, wines, t-shirts, RV supplies and groceries. Solid surface sites, grassy lawns, mature trees and shrubs. Easy walk over the dune/berm to the famous Pismo Beach where one can literally walk for miles soaking up the Pacific Ocean. This entire coastline gets jammed during hot California summers. Reservations are needed from Memorial Day through Labor Day. We were fortunate to enjoy this fine park before the summer crush of humanity. The sites include a table and fire ring, but are just too close for all the paraphenalia that most folks want to enjoy when camping. We are so over the fire at each site thing when parked so close to each other! Recommend replacing individual fire rings with a dozen COMMUNITY fire sites scattered strategically about. Would foster better RV camper relations.
