Santee Lakes Recreation Preserve, Santee, California

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

A Regional Park that is an oasis off I-8 near San Diego. Two lakes just for RVers, Cabins on land or "floating, fishing, bike & boat rental, store, kids playgrounds and great staff. All very well-maintained and safe. Close to all major stores, the trolly and many attractions. Day use areas also.

Reserve early as they sell-out. I got the only space for the month of July. We camped at Santee Lakes Recreation Preserve in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Santee has most major stores and Fashion Valley Masll is a short drive. Easy Trolly from Santee to Downtown San Diego for Zoo, USS Midway, Gaslamp, Convention Center, Petco Park, San Diego Train Depot & more. Also a short coaster ride from San Diego train depot to races in DelMar and beaches in DelMar, Solana Beach, Encinitas or Oceanside.

Mystic Forest RV Park, Klamath, California

Date of Stay: July, 2014 - $29.00
Overall Rating:      

This is by far, the best value and the most quiet, pleasant RV park in the area. It is clean and well maintained by the owners and offers secluded tent and RV (back-in) sites nestled in the tall trees. There are also many sunny or partly shaded pull-thru sites and all are FHU with picnic tables and fire pits. The bathrooms and laundry are super clean and the owners are very helpful with suggestions and maps for the best sights to see and even having my mail sent here. There is a 1/2 mi. trail with all the blackberries you can pick in season. When I arrived and hooked-up my hose for water, I noticed a wet area, but thought the former guests just didn't turn water all the way off. But when I turned the water on to my RV, the faucet sprayed water everywhere. I mentioned it to the office. It was fixed with a new handle when I returned. Awesome! On Sat night we were entertained by an impromptu singer with an acoustic guitar. It's a great base for easy day trips to drive/hike in the Jedediah Smith Redwoods Park; see the Klamath Overlook and beach at the mouth of the Klamath River; go fishing or gathering driftwood; visit the Battery Point Lighthouse (at low tide only) for the history of the Tsunami that hit Crescent City; drive the Newton B. Drury Scenic Parkway to Elk Meadows, hike Lady Bird Johnson Grove Trail, plus much more. This is my second stay here and it's better than the concrete, harbor parks in Crescent City that I stayed at my first time. This year, I called ahead to take advantage of their weekly/monthly rate. We camped at Mystic Forest RV Park in a Motorhome.

Thousand Trails / Russian River Resort, Cloverdale, California

Date of Stay: July, 2014 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

This is my 3rd TT park, and I'm not impressed. It has many steep sites that are very close together and hard to access without scraping your rig. Has no sewer hook-ups, needs a lot of work with large tree limbs & branches protruding, bathrooms are in need of repair, and no WiFi except in main building. The staff was very friendly and helpful and I guess it's OK if you want to visit wineries or go on the river. We camped at Thousand Trails / Russian River Resort in a Motorhome.
