Casa De Fruta RV Orchard Resort, Hollister, California

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $48.00
Overall Rating:      

We stay at Casa de Fruta a few times a year-our favorite spot for festivities in the area-Gilroy Garlic Fest. in July, Ren. Faire in fall, etc. We camp in an A-frame pop-up so don't HAVE to have paved roads or concrete pad. There are two camping areas-the upper area (described in the other reviews) AND the lower area, "Creekside", with hookups (elec/water/tv, not sewer) and "Orchard" without. We always camp in the lower area, which has lots of shade, nice grass and none of the road/highway noise. You take a 1-lane dirt road uphill/downhill to get in/out, which is no problem for us, but doesn't seem to be a problem for the class "A"s who camp next to us either. No porcelain plumbing in the lower area, but the walk to the upper area bathrooms only takes 5 minutes and isn't an issue for those with facilities in their trailer/RV (like us). The area is always clean and the office staff have always been ultra friendly and helpful. A little pricey, but the Good Sam discount helps. We camped at Casa De Fruta RV Orchard Resort in a Tent Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Lots to see in the area...Pinnicles National Park outside Hollister; the wineries on highway 152 west of Gilroy: old town San Juan Bautista, etc. And although pricey, we can't leave the area without a stop at "Casa De Wine"for a few bottles...

We stop here on our way from L.A. to the Utah/Arizona parks. Very comfortable, with clean restrooms, easy in/out and friendly staff. An excellent place to charge batteries, fill water tanks, etc. We camped at Hitchin' Post RV Park & Motel in a Tent Trailer.

Carlsbad KOA, Carlsbad, New Mexico

Date of Stay: June, 2011 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

Extremely friendly staff; very clean facilities, particularly the bathrooms and showers; nice recreational facilities (pool, game room, etc.) and camp store. No black-water dump station; sewer hook-ups at the campsites (no use to us with cassette toilets), but no prohibition against dumping the cassettes in the bathroom. The RV sites are gravel pull-throughs (even for those with pop-up trailers). We camped at Carlsbad KOA in a Tent Trailer.

Spider Rock Campground, Chinle, Arizona

Date of Stay: June, 2011 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

We found this campground to be a wonderful, "real world," Colorado-plateau, mesa-top experience. Unlike another local park (which, while a nice enough, shady, campground in a cottonwood grove, is NPS "plain vanilla,"with little separation from your neighbor), the campsites here are tucked among the pinion-pines and junipers found on top of the mesa. It is hard-soil dry-camping, bring your own drinkable water; the toilets are outhouse (but well-maintained), so we mostly used our own. The owner and his dog were extremely friendly and lead outings into the canyon, and the rates ($10/night for tent or pop-up) are good for a private campground. Big class A's and B's, and big trailers, might have some problem negotiating the campsite roads to the better sites, which wind among the trees, but for those of us with smaller trailers, no problem. We camped at Spider Rock Campground in a Tent Trailer.

Orangeland RV Park, Orange, California

Date of Stay: May, 2011 - $65.00
Overall Rating:      

We used this park when setting up our pop-up trailer as temporary housing for our daughter-student at nearby Chapman Univ., and when attending her graduation. Wonderful RV resort, albeit a little pricey; clean, friendly, with wonderful facilities. Very conveniently located for nearby amusement parks. Allowed us a later check-out when our schedule was tight. We camped at Orangeland RV Park in a Tent Trailer.
