Azalea Glen RV Park & Campgrounds, Trinidad, California

Date of Stay: November, 2015 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

We gravitate towards the 10/10/10 parks with level concrete pads & easy satellite tv clearance. This awesome park is definitely not that. But its emphasis on a quiet, serene atmosphere (no outdoor TV's allowed!) held huge appeal to me. Arrived after a good rain storm to find the very large grass pad firm enough to drive on but too soft to comfortably allow me to extend the leveling jacks, even with the aid of the plastic 12"x12" pads & 'legos' I carry. I cautiously elected to give it a day to dry out then try again. A passing comment to one of the wonderful women that work the office resulted in her equally great husband providing some serious pieces of wood that made quick work of supporting the weight of our 37' Class A. Satellite TV worked at our pull thru site unless the wind was really blowing. (The park abuts to part of Patrick's Point SP & has very tall trees on its parameter.). Excellent cable is provided. The park, our site included, is beautifully landscaped. A very tall hedge provided a privacy on the sides. There really aren't that many sites available. At least during our November stay, drop-ins were not encouraged. Be sure to call ahead. Our departure was delayed by a day due to another rainstorm. My inexperience with grass sites had me worried that we might get stuck trying to leave. We did get a lot of rain, but in hindsight, I was probably just being overly cautious. Enter the park from the north & carefully follow the park's signs at the entrance. The first entrance area is not designed for bigger rigs. This is a very nicely landscaped that emphasizes a very quiet setting. And great wifi. Pay for 7, stay for 8. We could not have been happier. We camped at Azalea Glen RV Park & Campgrounds in a Motorhome.

Flag City RV Resort, Lodi, California

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

Though it's been awhile since we stayed at this park, things haven't changed much. It is still a very nice place to stop on our north/south travels. Level, long concrete pads are a plus, but hook-ups are located towards the very rear of the site. We have to park the dinghy in front of the coach to access them. The poor choice of groundcover between the sites is not intended to be walked on and usually looks pretty bad. With CA's drought conditions it hasn't been watered and looks even worse. This park would really sparkle if they used artificial turf. Passport America is honored at the times we usually visit. Lots of fast food choices at the truck stop complex nearby. All services a little further east in Lodi. We camped at Flag City RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Bakersfield River Run RV Park, Bakersfield, California

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

This was our second visit to this park. There are two others we usually use depending on our reason for being in the area. This park may well be elevated in my preference. I don't care for the pull-throughs. Check their website for more info on that. For a stay where I'm unhooking the dinghy anyway, I consider their back-ins the best sites of the 3 parks we use. Very nice young lady in the office. Very busy Costco about a block away. When the rains come, our back-in site will have had a great view of the river. We camped at Bakersfield River Run RV Park in a Motorhome.

Bakersfield RV Resort, Bakersfield, California

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $44.00
Overall Rating:

We frequent this park. We like that it has an onsite restaurant, which we usually enjoy. The park is very nicely landscaped considering it's arid environment. The biggest concern I have is that every visit, everyone seems to be assigned sites that are not really big enough. We could not have left our Honda attached to our 37' Class A and fit in our pull through site. As did most others, we had our car parked perpendicular to the coach. This resulted in many vehicles extending somewhat into the road. This trip, this was merely an annoyance. In the past, I've simply requested, when calling for a reservation, that I be given a site long enough that I can leave the car attached. They have always accommodated that request. We camped at Bakersfield RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Champagne Lakes, Escondido, California

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $43.00
Overall Rating:

We've been looking for a park 'less lively' on the weekends in the Temecula area than where we usually stay. I'd read reviews that this park had been seriously renovated. It really has. We stayed in one of the upper levels. Full sun exposure (unlike the sites nestled in the valley) but also no satellite interference. In our area, parking was a bit tight for bigger, multi-slide units with an accompanying vehicle, but doable by moving the provided picnic table to the back corner of the concrete pad. At least in our area, the park was as peaceful as we seek. Might not be near the lakes where tent campers are provided waterfront sites along the catch & release oases. Cell phone reception is 1 bar, but provided TengoInternet was good. This is a beautiful facility that should be a model for what the state should be doing in its parks. Don't think 10/10/10 RVs in a row like we gravitate towards. Think that concept hybridized with an oak studded state park. And full hookups. We camped at Champagne Lakes in a Motorhome.

Ventura Beach RV Resort, Ventura, California

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $90.00
Overall Rating:

For the most part, this park gets negative reviews. Yep, you are right next to the freeway, but at our pull-through site about 3 rows back, it was white noise that I felt helped to mask the disturbances caused by other RVers. Road noise was no worse than many other parks we've stayed at. Yep, it is very pricey, but this is Ventura Beach area. I considered it 'fair market value'. And apparently many others did also! Mid-June, mid-week it was at least as crowded as the previous 2 coastal (albeit cheaper) parks we stayed at. And a whole heck of a lot nicer! It is a very attractive, very well maintained facility. No satellite TV interference at our site. Evidence of the removal of mature trees to facilitate today's larger, multi-slide units. There were a lot of different types of sites. The hook-ups at our pull-through were not designed for motorhomes, but were at the very back of the site. Having both the dinghy attached and taking advantage of said hook-ups would not have been possible. Great Wi-Fi. On the downside, the rules need to be proactively enforced. Too many dogs off leash. Motorized vehicles traveling too fast. And tow vehicles (always with a toy hauler) sticking out into the roadway. I didn't feel the sites were wide enough for the fire pits that many guests felt were necessary in mid-June. But we really liked the park. The many rule violating guests . . . not so much. We camped at Ventura Beach RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Pismo Sands RV Park, Oceano, California

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

This park boasts that it has been recognized as the, ". . . best medium sized park in California . . ." numerous times. It might well have been 30 years ago when I first visited. Since this is coastal Cal, the sites are very close together. It is predominantly the dreaded side-by-side hookup. This is where the bigger rigs are going fit. When reserving our site, I clearly explained exactly what I wanted, letting it be known that we would postpone our visit if what I wanted wasn't available. Upon arrival, the site they had identified for us was neither long enough nor wide enough. (This also happened to a couple that arrived in the site next to us.) They did find us another site. Multiple times my wife & I expressed our appreciation, but we should never have been assigned that first site to start with. While there, I read a review criticizing the lack of enforcement of noise violations. I also read management's response. Basically it was that the violation occurred after office hours & that if you complain we'll do something about it. Neither of those attitudes sit well with me. On the plus side, the park is attractive. The office & grounds people are just great. I found it very reasonably priced given its location. Only on 2 of our 10 evenings was it 'lively' enough that I couldn't sit outside & read wearing noise canceling headphones. For what I'm looking for - safe and quiet - it is the best choice in the immediate Pismo area. We camped at Pismo Sands RV Park in a Motorhome.

Anaheim RV Park, Anaheim, California

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $57.00
Overall Rating:

Were this park almost anywhere else, it is unlikely that we would return. But it's proximity to Disneyland allows a lot of minor things to be overlooked - most of which are related to its age. Initially we were a bit disappointed, but quickly overcame it. This isn't a brand new polished 10/10/10 park, which we unabashedly prefer, but this older facility is well maintained. It looks to be a mobile home park that has evolved into an RV park. Not unattractive, but not new. There's road noise in the near distance, but, remember, you are in urban Anaheim. The park (at least for a week in early June) is surprisingly quiet. I suspect that's because it is primarily a place to sleep between taking the available & very popular public transportation to what people are really here for - Disneyland. There are a lot of mature trees, but, as we requested when we made our reservation, we were given a back-in site without satellite interference. And we still had shade! However, the trees are currently dropping small droplets of sap. No signage to the park exists coming in from S. Anaheim Blvd. (You don't want to miss it the first time as we did!) W. Midway does not have a traffic signal. There are 2 lanes for check-in parking that are clearly marked. You can also park along the curb just past them, a left turn off of Midway that is actually one entrance to the park, to check-in. As usual, the Tango internet did not work with my iPad, but did with my wife's MacBook. We camped at Anaheim RV Park in a Motorhome.

Durango RV Resort, Red Bluff, California

Date of Stay: April, 2015 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

We pulled in for one night, Good Friday, to find, as I would have suspected, that this beautiful resort is very popular with families with younger children and RV'ers looking like they could have been the loud party type, on at least this, a holiday weekend. Never heard the loud music or carrying on that I was concerned about. This appears to be a park that enforces its rules. The resort is just that. Beautiful with lots of extras. Many of the premium sites - gorgeous - could wind up being buddy sites so check with the office if this concerns you. The office staff is great as is everything about this resort. Very likely the nicest in the state of Jefferson. We camped at Durango RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Dutcher Creek RV Park and Campground, Cloverdale, California

Date of Stay: April, 2015 - $46.00
Overall Rating:

There are only about 9 sites available for short term rental. About half have concrete pads. Ours, probably usually reserved for the park manager, was just awesome! The others range from good to great. Traveling with a friend? One very large, beautiful buddy site is available. The challenge to this park is the relatively steep switchback road to it. We elected to disconnect the dinghy. Next time we will do that in front of MGM brake, next to the Shell station at the next offramp north. Also, our rig is very tall. Navigating thru the trees in & out of the neighborhood leading to the park as carefully as I could, I still made contact with a few branches. As long as the coach wasn't damaged (and it was not), it was worth it. We found a lot to do in the area but mostly enjoyed just staying at this beautiful site. Nothing for kids to do here, but it is a great place for adults to spend time just sitting around the rig soaking up the beautiful, quiet scenery. Very nice park managers. We camped at Dutcher Creek RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

For a first time visit, if in a motorhome, take the dinghy up first to sign in. This will reassure you that the initially intimidating hill is very manageable.

Marin Park, Greenbrae, California

Date of Stay: March, 2015 - $60.00
Overall Rating:

Location. Location. Location. If this park were anywhere else but the outrageously expensive Bay Area . . . But here it is the very best of the 4 we've used. The sites are perfect for Airstreams, which we saw a ton of. Today's bigger rigs with slides on both sides, would literally fill the entire width of the site. It appears that, whenever possible, bigger units are given 2 sites. This exemplifies what we saw of all the employees. They really go out of their way to make your stay the best experience possible. Information is provided to help guests take advantage of the nearby ferry that takes you within steps of the public transportation system in SF. Walking & biking trails abound with many shopping & eating options readily accessible using them. The provided Internet didn't work very well with my iPad. The best I ever got with the Verizon 4g was 3 bars, but no trees interfered with satellite TV reception. Not a place with room for kids unless the pool were open during the visit. We liked it so well we stayed for 15 days. We camped at Marin Park in a Motorhome.

Premier RV Resorts of Redding , Redding, California

Date of Stay: March, 2015 - $51.00
Overall Rating:

The greater Redding area has 3 parks that meet our standards. Premier is the closest to family, so it is our park of choice. Called ahead on a Wednesday for a week's reservation - pay for 6, stay for 7 - and got the last site available. We always stay in the newer pull-thru's simply because the landscaping is new enough to not interfere with satellite TV. These crowned sites are large, level concrete pads with gravel entrances & exits. There's grass between the sites and paver patios with a very nice picnic table that is easily repositioned. The setting afternoon sun allows for shade on the curb side. A free newspaper is provided every day except Sunday. If satellite interference is not an issue, the original portion of the park offers good shade in anticipation of the very hot Redding summers at most sites. Plenty of over the air channels are available. And the Internet has dramatically improved and is now just great! We camped at Premier RV Resorts of Redding in a Motorhome.

Sun & Fun RV Park, Tulare, California

Date of Stay: March, 2015 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

We called ahead to reserve one of the very few pull-thru's so we could leave the toad attached for a quick morning getaway. Upon seeing the site, I realized that the layout of the park would prohibit me from getting into the site with the car attached. Additionally, the space turned out to be too short to reattach the car to our 37' coach once in the site. This is not an acceptable overnight stop for us. It would be ok for a multi-day stop. The largest back-ins have 38' pads, with room at most to have the back of the rig over the grass median, if that's permitted. Train & 18 wheeler noise were quite pronounced during the late afternoon, but subsided at night. We camped at Sun & Fun RV Park in a Motorhome.

Desert Willow RV Resort, Hesperia, California

Date of Stay: February, 2015 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

DWRV is a large facility provided primarily for extended stay guests. Around 25 of the 150+ sites are designated pull-thru's for overnight & weekly guests. Many of these are the dreaded side-by-side configuration, but the sites so long, that the design's deficiencies are minimized. The park was founded in 1988. As such, the sites, narrow gravel pads with a very nice concrete patio, reflect the days before slides. Were we staying but a single night in the pull-thru's, I would not open the slides. The wonderful ladies in the office have been very accommodating in working with us to find sites that will accommodate the coaches of today for our multi-day visits. This quiet park has a superb location just off I-15 very close to where 395 intersects it. It is a great place to wait out weather conditions, especially the wind, that RV'ers best avoid traveling either down Cajon Pass or in the local deserts. We camped at Desert Willow RV Resort in a Motorhome.
