A first-class state park with lots of sites with lake views and full hookups. There is a nuclear power plant across the water and a nuclear evacuation route out of the park, if that is a concern. However, we pulled into the par this year and 10 minutes later, the entire park lost electricity for over 5 hours. Temps were around 100 degrees and most of the folks in fifth-wheels had no AC. We heard it was a transformer problem, nothing to do with the plant. The A and C loops have most of the lake views. Shopping about 10 minutes away in Russleville.

There are several campgrounds at this state park. Dogwood Drive has no views of the lake, Deep Fork campground has some with views of the lake. When we were there, at the Deep Fork Campground, they were doing road repair the next day and the campground was closed the next day so we had to leave. Register and pay at the Visitor Center on the way in. Very nice park, but wish they had more sites where you could see the lake!

Nice overnight stop while traveling on I-40. Very long pull throughs. We also liked how the owner met us at the entrance, took our card, registered us without us having to shut down the rig. They guided us to site C-5. Freeway is close but we had our windows up and the noise wasn't a factor. they got fairly full at the end of the day, and we were surprised to see them guide in a huge fifth wheel with slides, right next to us. Their slide would have come within several feet of our rig. My wife mentioned this to the owner they immediately guided them away to another spot. We really appreciated them taking the extra effort to do that. No problem getting a dish and signal. Rabbitt ears gets the Albuquerque stations. We would stop there again.

A true Big Rig park, with wide roads, huge pull through sites. Only one row has full hookups, the others are water and power only, but there's an easily accessible dump station. Good security with gates closed all evening long. We were able to get satellite signal from the row we were in. Very well kept and clean RV park. We're sorry we had passed it so many times before but glad we stopped. All the sites are very level. No cable tv but we were able to get most networks with our rabbit ears. Far enough the Interstate so traffic noise was more minimal.

A classic beach campsite, but the California Dept. of Parks seems to spend almost nothing on it. I am thinking it's a bit of a cash cow for the dept, with the huge demand to get in there. $40 a day is the charge, but what a location. dry camped on the ocean with the waves breaking 40 feet from your rig. Note, that the railroad runs along the campground but trains don't blow their whistle. Usually about 6 commuter trains and two freight trains per day. The freeway above it is more of a distraction. Staff always does a super job with what they have to deal with, and the large crowds there during the summer. We wouldn't think of trying to get a site between Memorial and Labor Day. Sites are sold out all summer, but after or before the season, it's easier to snag a site when they are off the reservation time period. We have heard of bikes and generators being stolen by homeless and transients at night, so this year, we reluctantly packed away our chairs and bikes during the overnight time period. We were told that one group of thieves used a bolt cutter to steal a generator about 4 am in the morning, but were caught by the owner, who chased them down. Most sites are diagonal, with a few parallel to the water. There are no facilities at this park. You have to leave with your rig and dump tanks for a fee in Ventura, or travel about 20 minutes to another park.

Fairly isolated RV park near Tehachapi, minutes from town, with nice open views of the mountains to the North. We enjoy staying here because it has near access to the town, also near the Tehachapi Loop, world famous railroad landmark. Park is adjacent to a glider airport and there are usually gliders being launched after 8 am, but fun to watch. Sewer wasn't at the site but there was a dump station on the way out. No problem getting a satellite signal with Direct TV.

Very well run RV park that is always clean. It is situated on a steep hill but each space is leveled out very well. We had to disconnect our tow, to fit it in on the front. (42 ft Motorcoach) We had no work navigating in the park with our coach. One thing: when checking in, there's a slight hill you have to stop on and I worry about stopping on the slope, so we parked out on the main approach road and made the short walk up the hill to registration. You are charged $25 for a gate entry card, so you have to make sure you return it for a refund of your deposit. This park is close to the Metrolink Station at Vincent Grade, where you can take a train all the way to downtown LA, with connections everywhere. Soledad Canyon, further to the West, suffered a lot of fire damage in this year's fire. There are no picnic tables, fire rings and limited room to set up outside.

We always request a premium slot at this convenient Las Vegas RV park. I'm not sure about the exact daily rate, but they did offer us some discounts for the first few days. Very nice clubhouse and pool area. Accesss is a little trickier than it use to be since some high rises went in where their old entrance road was. the only irritant was the number of people having their RVs washed and the crews would start at 8 am, with very loud compressors and water spray, and it continued for hours. The worker told me that to wash and wax a 40 footer was over $400! The park rules prevent anybody from washing a rig unless they use a compressor, so I assume that's a way to drum up biz for these companies. they should make them begin later as the noise is horrible and I noticed the people with the rig next to us, having it washed, left, so they wouldn't have to listen to it. We would stay here again. the reason we get the premium site, is it keeps you away from the Interstate a little more. We do hate the huge bumps you go over when leaving. I don't know why so many RV parks have these dish-rattlers on the road. We had to disconnect on the pull through to squeeze our car in sideways and get it off the road.

We stayed here on the way up to the Sierras, and it's a very good, solid RV park, with a nice amount of space between most of the sites. We like to stay in the back, around space 156. Very clean, level sites with full hookups, and the best view of Mt. Whitney you'll find. We had some mechanical trouble and our trip was delayed and the staff was excellent in working with us, and reserving a space at short notice. We were told that the park was filled that night and we were lucky to get in, however, we saw a lot of empty spaces around. Not sure what was going on with that comment.

Perhaps the greatest views you will see from any campground, but also, very sad to see that it's potential is not realized. It's billed as an RV only, emergency overflow campground. Strictly for dry camping. For years, we tried to stay here again, but were told it was "overflow only." Then this year, with the nearby Silverlake campground closed due to repaving, the rangers at Mono Lake, said we could use it. There's a 3 night maximum and we were by ourselves both nights except a small rig pulled into the campground the second night. You are parking on asphalt with no facilities, but again, the soaring cliffs and views are beyond belief. Nobody came around to collect our pay envelopes, and in fact, the tube for your payment can be unscrewed by anybody on the bottom and taken. There needs to be somebody checking on the place once in a while. Nearby there is stunning hiking, boating in June Lake. Supplies available in Mammoth Mountain or Lee Vining. We were somewhat hesitant to go off and leave our rig because nobody at all was around. Would have been better to have a camp host or somebody else nearby. The site numbers on the pavement are all worn off. Because we feel strongly that this area should be used by more and allowed to be used, we hand carried our two payment stubs and checks to the Mammoth Mountain visitor center and gave them to the ranger. He seemed perplexed as well and said he would put the checks in the safe. A tough site to catch when it's open, but awesome.

Needed a place overnight and this was right by the freeway. By the way, we were headed to Foss State Park first, and the bridge was out so check that situation out as well. This is an older KOA park. Asphalt was very uneven and needed to be redone. They have a lot of big speed bumps which I never understand, since they are so damaging to a big rig. We requested a space where we could get our satellite up and running and they do have selected satellite sites, but we have to jockey our rig around in order to avoid the many tree branches. The rig near us couldn't get satellite at all. But a convenient, quick place to overnight, although priced a little high, as KOA's are known for.

A first- class big rig operation and always a pleasure to stay here. They will point out points of interest in the area, like Red Oak II, an incredible tourist attraction. Very spacious big rig pull throughs, easy access off the freeway. Spaces to the north are more open and easier for satellite reception. We were able to pull into the space with our tow, all the hookups lined up, then we left without having to disconnect. Can't go wrong with Mike and his staff!

Even with their patio sites, rigs can be very close to you at this Branson park. Many had difficult getting satellites to work because of all the trees, I suggest trying the regular sites on the East (?) end to try and get a signal. Staff is very accomodating. We got there a day early and they have a spacious overflow area with power you can stay in for $19 a night. The staff does everything they can to make your stay nice. Once, we were bbqing hamburgers, didn't have an onion, and one of the staff brought us an onion from his place. Although one of the most expensive parks, its' super close to all the show sites and the strip. Like most of the parks around, it's very hilly, but they have leveled the sites well. Just wish they had more space inbetween them.

This is part of the national park system. I had called the rangers to see if their campground could take a big rig and they said it could. However, the drive in there has a number of big hills and in fact, we didn't hook up with our tow when leaving, until we got out to the Freeway. The Big Springs is really worth seeing. Very stunning. 288 million gallons of spring water come out of the ground each day. However, from the campground you will not be near the Springs, or able to see the river nearby. They also didn't tell us that the largest campground area was closed off for the season and we had to go into the smaller area. We were able to find space for a 42 foot rig and got satellite reception also. Verizon signal very weak. We could get more calls but no digital service and could not go online. We wouldn't camp here again, just because the drive in is a little hairy.

Very good park for overnighting in a Big Rig. Nice long pull throughs. Far enough off the freeeway where the loud traffic noise was not an issue. Very good service. We asked the owner to put us a couple of spaces from anybody else, so we had more room, and he did. Easy in and out without having to disconnect the tow.
