Fort Amargosa RV Park, Amargosa Valley, Nevada

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

Middle Of Nowhere Nice I stayed for one night while traveling from northern Nevada to So Cal. After not liking what I saw in Beatty (cramped locations) but was too tired to make Pahrump, this RV Park turned out quite nice. It was quiet, the sites are level, the hook ups are easy & the man running the park is very helpful. All the sites appear to be pull thru. I had plenty of room for my 25' trailer & Ram 3500 truck. The sites are gravel with small trees and are adequately spacious. There's showers & a laundry but I didn't use them or visit them. In front there's a gas station & store. There's a very large space between the park & the road to walk pets. Traffic noise is not too noticeable either. Sci-fi fans will beam across the street to the "Area 51 Space Alien Travel Plaza" fuel & restaurant stop. Good luck trying not to buy any alien suvioneers! Like the tequila or vodka in alien head shape bottles. In back is the maybe world famous Bunny Ranch but I don't know what kinda "bunnies" are there. (Yes Dear- Honest!). I enjoyed my stay at the RV Park more than I thought & would stay again. We camped at Fort Amargosa RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Area 51 Travel Plaza & brothel across the street. Good (but small) restaurant in there too. Good diesel fuel prices, I didn't notice gas prices.

Gold Ranch Casino & RV Resort (formerly Terrible's Gold Ranch Casino), Verdi, Nevada

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

Great location! In the trees, lots of shade and grass next to each site. Casino with a good restaurant plus a few fast food restaurants within a 5 minute walk. CA lotto too is here. Good cable and wi-fi, (be aware- wi-fi is unsecured!). Individual combo restroom/shower rooms were clean and spacious. However, these rooms are the unisex setup, meaning these rooms are right next to each other. There's no separate areas for men and women. Some people might feel uncomfortable with this type of proximity to each other. Service staff is very good. I came in after hours and they had posted a map with my name and site number on the the door for me and told me to wait until the following morning to do the paperwork- awesome!

Antelope Valley Fairgrounds, Lancaster, California

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

I stay here on a sporadic schedule whenever I visit family. It's always had spaces available. However, I believe the park closes during their state fair in August. The spaces are easy access and wide. I parked my truck and trailer plus had adequate room to park a borrowed vehicle next to my trailer during my stay. The park and restrooms/showers are quite clean and spacious. However the shower curtains were tattered and kinda moldy. The park is a mix of travelers and longer term residents. All were quiet and friendly. While I was there the fairgrounds had a large swap meet one weekend and a rodeo another weekend. Neither event created excess noise or traffic.

Wi fi is available but was marginal at best. There is no cable which is something that is sorely needed, as over the air TV reception was terrible.

This park is a good place to use as a base if you have other things to do. I noticed the park host are not always around during the day so you have to self register. The problem with that I witnessed is if you happen to leave without leaving something to "mark" your site and someone else come in and sets up in your spot, you're gonna have headache to straighten things out.

One other thing- don't leave your awnings open unattended as the winds can pick up suddenly and usually every afternoon. We camped at Antelope Valley Fairgrounds in a Travel Trailer.

Hearst San Simeon State Park, Cambria, California

Date of Stay: August, 2012 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

I arrived here on a busy Friday with no reservations. Being as the primary (and more expensive) camp was full, I was relegated to the more primitive back campground. Talk about a blessing in disguise! This area is beautiful. Though further away from the ocean, it's actually higher, with views. Plus, by being further back, it's less crowded and more quiet. Hiking trails are close by and there's always a nice cool breeze. Neither camp has hookups. Both have water spigots scattered around the campgrounds. The only difference is the primary area has flush toilets and showers, while the the other camp has only vault/pit/chemical style toilets (not sure what the differences are). However, these were clean and big. This is one very nice and good priced campground that I'll be sure to come back to and spend some time at. We camped at Hearst San Simeon State Park in a Truck Camper.

Gaviota State Park, Goleta, California

Date of Stay: August, 2012 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

I stayed here overnight while traveling through. The campground is situated in a small bowl, surrounded on the sides by small hills. A sign on the kiosk warns you of potential high winds (and no refunds). When I was there, however, there was no wind. In fact, I was wishing for a small breeze, as it was quite warm. The hills seem to hold in the heat. The way to the beach is under the train trestle. This would by a nice place for families or groups to stay while you visit and do other activities in the area. The restrooms and showers were clean. The showers require quarters and have good, hot water. However, the fee is $45!! I just can not justify paying that price for a mostly basic campsite. While my stay there was adequate, I probably won't be back. We camped at Gaviota State Park in a Truck Camper.

Emma Wood State Beach, Ventura, California

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

This a small, narrow park. All sites are in a single row, facing the the ocean. If you are in a larger or longer rig, you may have to go all the way to the end (about one mile) to turn around. Bring plenty of leveling blocks. The back half of most of the asphalt pads have eroded away, dropping about two inches to the dirt, which also slopes down another few inches or more, the further back you go. The ocean is about thirty-five to forty feet in front of you. Conversely, the train tracks are thirty-five to forty feet behind you. The trains run daily, at full speed, about a half-dozen times a day when I was here. The last freight train of the day was around ten-thirty in the evening, everyday. A little further behind the train tracks is the 101 freeway, which seems to run downhill over the bridge, as I would often here the semi trucks using their "Jake" brakes late at night. The sites are pretty close together. When I was here, one side was empty and on the other side, I was fortunate to have two very nice "mature" ladies for company. As I was camping alone, after the recent loss of a beloved family member. This is not a sand beach. Or a place to do a lot of activities. However, near the edges of the campground, there areas to swim, body surf and stuff. The shore is nothing but rocks and boulders of various sizes. Walkable but use caution. Now, if you want tranquility, a place to chill out and relax, read, write, do nothing or contemplate whatever! This is the place!. The traffic noises and other small inconveniences aren't even noticed after the first day. The view of the ocean, the lull of the surf, the not annoying squawk of the birds, the seals and porpoises strolling on by, all make for an relaxing and memorial stay. We camped at Emma Wood State Beach in a Truck Camper.

Jalama Beach Park, Lompoc, California

Date of Stay: August, 2012 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

I stayed once about ten years ago, before it became "known." It was nice back then. This time, I drove to it, over a torturous fourteen mile steep, winding rough patched road that will test your rig's suspension and how well you have everything secured inside. When I got here, the place was packed! Kids were running around all over. (Nothing against kids, I'm just saying what I saw.) The sites are extremely close to one other and the place was very noisy. Maneuvering room is limited and you can be sure you'll be the entertainment while you try to back your rig in. Unless you're one of the many tent campers set up next to the RV's. After my drive through, I changed my mind and decided not to stay here. I was very disappointed in how this place has changed and also considering the poor road condition, won't be back. We camped at Jalama Beach Park in a Truck Camper.

Victorian RV Park, Sparks, Nevada

Date of Stay: July, 2012 - $29.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a nice, clean, quiet friendly park. It is also a pet friendly park. They had no problem accepting my 2 large dogs. Far different than another local RV Park, which is very breed restrictive. There's a handful of long term tenets but their sites are well maintained. Staff is very helpful and friendly. Special thanks to "new guy!" The restrooms and showers are clean and roomy. There's also a clean laundry, though a little warm in summer afternoon. The sites fit small to large rigs, but very large rigs may have a hard time. Wi-Fi is available, but here's my one complaint: I was never able to connect, even outside my camper. I had to go up to the laundry to connect. Inconvenient, but not too big a deal. I suggest they invest in some Wi-Fi repeaters in the park. My only other suggestion is to put up a solid fence between the park and mobile home park next door instead of the see through fence there now. Otherwise, I look forward to my future stays here.
