Malibu Beach RV Park, Malibu, California

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $170.00
Overall Rating:      

Yes, it is expensive, but it has one of the best ocean views in California. We have stayed here before as well. I went for a hike / bike ride in the nearby hills. It is a really nice area. Our camp was right on the edge of a bluff. There is a nice store on the campgrounds. The staff is friendly and helpful. We would return again. We camped at Malibu Beach RV Park in a Motorhome.

Dockweiler RV Park, Playa del Rey, California

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $60.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here 3 nights as part of a week long vacation. We have stayed here before and have always enjoyed this camp. Easy bike ride to neighboring beach towns and areas. Also, close for a car visit to other areas. This park also shares some public beach restrooms, so some are not so nice. There is a combination entry for 2 restroom buildings that are a step nicer. Only negative here is the airplane noise. You are camping directly under the LAX airport takeoff zone. Only other negative was a neighbor camper feeding pigeons on the road along the campsites. We will do a return visit here. Camping along the sand of the beach is a huge plus for our family. Fire rings on beach allow wood fires (both a positive and a negative feature). We camped at Dockweiler RV Park in a Motorhome.

Heritage RV Park, Corning, California

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

I bought our motorhome in Oregon and was driving it home. Needed a place just for the night to rest. Pulled in, found an approved empty space and parked on a nice level space. Paid for my space using the convenient night drop box. Location was perfect as I could walk to an Auto Zone and a couple fast food places. I met a friendly couple staying in the space near me and we shared a drink in both their rig and mine. I left early in the morning before office was open. I would come back in the future and recommend it to others. We camped at Heritage RV Park in a Motorhome.

Glamis North Hot Springs Resort (formerly Glamis North KOA), Niland, California

Date of Stay: April, 2014 - $63.00
Overall Rating:      

This place needs some help. The campsites were rough. There were lots of tripping hazards like cable wires and utility boxes and pipes in ground near campsite. Many areas of the park were in disrepair. The pool had no shade areas and the chair I had was broken. The restrooms had dirty toilets that did not flush--GROSS. I was surprised to find neighboring camps that were nicer and half the nightly cost. This place caters to off road riders since they have ATV exits to trails from inside the park. We were there on a busy Easter weekend and the noise was too much. I would not return. We camped at Glamis North Hot Springs Resort (formerly Glamis North KOA) in a Travel Trailer.

Fun place to camp being right on the bike path and beach. Security restrooms were nice and clean. No complaints but you have to be OK with LAX jet noise from above. We had a nice fire ring on beach near our space. We camped at Dockweiler RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Ventura Beach RV Resort, Ventura, California

Date of Stay: April, 2014 - $71.00
Overall Rating:      

We have camped here before and enjoy the area. We paid an extra $11 / night for a premium space. Even though we were only a few spaces from the WIFI antenna, it did not work well. I would have given a 9 if it did. Nice place to camp for bike riding and relaxing. I used the Jacuzzi and enjoyed it. The restrooms have a combo lock to enter the shower area first, then separate to the washrooms. There is a game room and a decent store. I would go again, but find a coffee place for WIFI use. We camped at Ventura Beach RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Zephyr Cove Resort RV Park & Campground, Zephyr Cove, Nevada

Date of Stay: April, 2013 - $78.00
Overall Rating:      

This park was OK. Very expensive, but good location. Our space #187 was one of the toughest camps to park in I have ever experienced. The camp roads are very narrow and windy. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We even used the on site laundry and that worked well. Dont expect much of a lake view. Nice place, but I would pick some place else before coming back.

San Francisco North / Petaluma KOA, Petaluma, California

Date of Stay: April, 2013 - $72.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a pretty good park. The kids did not want to leave because they have so many activities. We enjoyed the big screen movies at the pool and the big jumpy. This is a big park. We had a problem with the power going out in the whole camp, but it was fixed quickly. We also stayed here last summer. Yes, we would return again. I thought the price was a bit high, but there is good value here. Well stocked store and friendly staff. We will return another trip as well.

Pacific Dunes Ranch and RV Resort, Oceano, California

Date of Stay: April, 2013 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

We loved this camp! The camp sites were flat and level. It was just a short walk to the sand dunes and the beach was about half mile away (over sand dunes). The camp staff was nice and helpful. They offered boogie boards for just a deposit. There is a horse rental corral nearby. This camp is best if you want to be away from the city. It's about a 5 mile drive north to Pismo Beach. We will be back again. We camped at Pacific Dunes Ranch and RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Butterfield Ranch, Julian, California

Date of Stay: April, 2013 - $39.00
Overall Rating:      

My rate stated includes tax and the $2/night dog fee. The main reason we decided to camp here is a friend's recommendation. The staff greeted us in a very friendly manner and they were very helpful and available. The sites are very spacious. The problem here is deferred maintenance. Everything that has been painted needs repainting. The signs within the park are all old and faded or broken. The sites themselves were a weed patch. I still have foxtails and plant matter stuck to my UGG boots. The bathroom gets an extra point for the hand painted tarantula on the stall door. The bathroom loses a point for a hole in the wall covered up with a sheet of paper asking to keep the door closed. I assume that rule is to keep the wild animals out. The pool bathroom had a broken hinge on the stall door. There was no soap in the bathroom either. The solar heated jacuzzi was nice, but cloudy water made me feel I was in a natural pool. The rec room with a pool table was locked up the whole time we visited over the weekend. Too bad some of that solar heated water did not help the freezing pool. I would not return until they made some improvements. I would rather camp in a primitive camp or nearby county park than go back there. We camped at Butterfield Ranch in a Travel Trailer.

29 Palms Golf Resort, Twentynine Palms, California

Date of Stay: April, 2013 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a great camp and I would return. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The sites are well sized. I stayed in space #98 and I was happy with its size and location. I arrived late at night and that space was one of the easiest possible sites. Many sites have good shade trees. They have made some good investments here. The WI-FI worked great. The indoor pool was awesome. The indoor jacuzzi and sauna had plenty of room and they were all very clean. Next time I visit, I will try to get a space in the trees for shade and location. I would have given it a 10, but there was a plumbing problem the morning I was there AT MY SITE. The friendly staff quickly took care of the problem. I actually look forward to my return. We camped at 29 Palms Golf Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Pismo Coast Village RV Resort, Pismo Beach, California

Date of Stay: April, 2013 - $67.00
Overall Rating:      

This was a nice camp overall. The spaces we a little small, but we managed to have 4 bikes, a Suzuki Samurai and a 2500 long bed truck on site with our 26' trailer. It is a good location for going into the town or a walk to the beach. It was smoky at nights since each site has a fire ring and picnic table. Our kids enjoyed the pool and arcade. The store was well stocked and reasonably overpriced for a camp store. We were in space 5x and would return another visit. Tents were allowed during the day. We camped at Pismo Coast Village RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This place was rustic dirty. Stayed here 3 nights. Seems lots of camps had campfires going and it was very smoky. Doubt I would return. Restrooms were good. Store is well stocked. Probably good if you are a fisherman. Lake was pretty. We camped at North Shore Campground in a Travel Trailer.

McArthur-Burney Falls State Park, Burney, California

Date of Stay: December, 2012 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

This place was just OK. Lots of trees, so it seemed we were camping in a forest. Kinda cool, kinda not. Spaces were level. Good place to camp to enjoy the lake and falls. No Wi-Fi that I could use, but I guess there was a fee. I heard it did not work well from a neighbor. My phone service did not work here either, so I had to go into town to use my phone. We camped at McArthur-Burney Falls State Park in a Travel Trailer.
