This park is at the east edge of the town of Morro Bay just south of Highway 1 and is by far the best rate around. I think it was built in the 1950's so the spaces are tight compared to those in places like Arizona, and they are all back in spaces. The manager was kind enough to help us get our 35' fifth wheel backed in and it was pretty easy with his great instructions. Just ask for help if you need it. There are lots of shade trees throughout the park, mostly pines. The staff is all helpful, professional and friendly. They have all sorts of great information about things to do in the area and lots of brochures in the front office to help you get oriented. There is also a DVD video check out library. The laundry facilities work great; it costs $2.00 per load for the washers and 25 cents for each 10 minutes on the dryers I found that 75 cents to $1.00 will dry a load of clothes including towels and jeans. We don't watch TV so have no experience with the TV service here, but I think it's satellite TV run throughout the park. They have a wireless internet connection included in the price of rent but we did not use it. There are phone hookups at every site and we got a DSL connection through AT&T because we stayed here for 6 months. The nightly rate I listed is what people pay to stay one night, not including tax. Our winter rate was $475 per month with electricity included, the rate is $550 per month in the summer. There is absolutely no better deal in town for an RV spot. The limit on a stay in most parks on Morro Bay is six months so we have to leave soon because our six months is up, but we would love to stay longer. The neighbors are friendly. The grounds are very clean and there is a heated pool and spa in the park which seems to be popular but we never used it. We have been very happy with our experience at Bay Pines!

This park is next to I-5 south of Weed. It's pretty basic and that's all we need. There is a railroad track running close to the campground but the train did not run at night so was not really a problem for us since were gone during most days we were here. There is an amazing amount of trash along the roadways near the park and interstate exit. Our site was a pull-through as most of them are, and was large and easy to get into. Some sites have picnic tables, some don't. When we stayed here the Wi-Fi connection was free and blazing fast. I think they are charging for more than 30 minutes of use per day now. There are a few fast food restaurants within walking distance and a truck plaza with propane available next door. The owners are friendly as the name implies. There are several long term residents here, mostly parked along the edges of the park. They get a lot of overnighters off of I-5. The park is oddly laid out but was easy to get into and out of. The laundry had only one of the 2 dryers working at the time, maybe that's been remedied.
