Vines RV Resort, Paso Robles, California

Date of Stay: November, 2015 - $55.00
Overall Rating:

If you like to "glamp", as do I, you want to read this review. The Vines is the love child of a penthouse suite at Mandalay Bay meets camping in the beautiful wine country of Paso Robles... did I mention there's wine!!! The campground is well thought out with entertainment for all. The lounge, bar, pool, common areas, sites, bathrooms...all beautiful. And the showers, nothing short of exquisite... the best I've seen anywhere (up to and including a few Marriotts and Ritz Carlton's I've stayed at... For real, go see for yourself)!!! The staff started with excellence from the moment I enter the door for check in and they only raised the bar through out my stay! I will definitely go back. If you are a light sleeper or sensitive to constant noise, don't stay in any of the sites that back up to the 101 Fwy. The highway noise is not horrible, but it is constant... Anywhere else in the park, you won't hear it at all!! Honestly, after a few wine tastings at the fabulous and plentiful wineries... you probably won't notice anyway!!! We camped at Vines RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

There are wineries in all directions, however if you have time to venture off of the beaten path... visit some of the wineries off of the 41 Fwy (in the hills)... BEAUTIFUL and picturesque!!!

Dockweiler RV Park, Playa del Rey, California

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

I have camped here time and really enjoy it!! It's a small park ,which is nice, especially if you have kids. You don't feel paranoid about the kids taking off on their bikes or skateboards. The spots are a little tight, which is tough if you have a really big trailer of 5th wheel and the sewer hookups are towards the front (weird)... If your sewer connections are at or near the back of your rig, you'll need a long sewer hose or an extension. You're really close to your neighboring site, so I suggest getting to know each other. It's separated from the main part of the beach which I hear can get a little rowdy (mainly on weekends). Nothing dangerous, just loud, but you are completely removed and separated from that in the RV park!! In the winter months there is a berm which blocks the ocean view from your site, but is really cool to see (again, especially if you have kids). The beach side spots are more readily accessible during the off season months yet the temperature is still very nice. It will get cold at night which makes the fire pits in the sand purposeful and not just great ambiance. Bottom line... It's the beach, it's clean... what's not to like!!! We camped at Dockweiler RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Book early...as far in advance as possible (90 days is the earliest allowed) in order to get a site along the sand. Every other side is good (you're only steps from the beach), but the beach side spots are what make the trip really special!!

Soledad Canyon Park / Thousand Trails, Acton, California

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

I have stayed at Soledad Canyon before and was really hard on the property in my critique. I won't repeat that review because that was then and now is now... and what a difference now makes!!! The sites now showed that they have been tended to, not cluttered with weeds and debris like before. Everything looked clean. The shrubs were manicured. The sites looked like they had been leveled and prepped. I don't know if it's new management or new attitude but it's definitely an improvement. The roads and trees were clean and easy to drive on. After our last stay, we swore we would never return... I'm so glad we did!!! There is still work to be done, but they are so headed in the right direction. It's now on my "definitely will be back" list!! The staff... amazing!!! One gentlemen with a beard and a young lady riding in the cart with him (wish I had gotten their names) were exceptionally great. They saw that the picnic table at my sight was riddled with splinters and falling apart and within 30mins they brought me a brand new table (literally brand new)!!! They would roll by and converse about just any old thing... that added a very special touch that I enjoy when glamping!!! I was really hard on this property in the past, but now it gets two thumbs up!!! There was a considerable amount of trash behind my site and on the hillside, but everything else had been so greatly improved, I looked over that, besides I'm sure there working on that as well. The wifi is only in the lodges and it's not very good, but I hear that's being redone through out the park. Forget a phone signal unless you drive up on the hill (section N). There phone and verizon mifi (if you have one) works fine. The pool is nice. The water effects by the family lodge with the big grassy fields... really nice...(you couldn't fine a blade of grass there before)!!! We camped at Soledad Canyon Park / Thousand Trails in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

If you are there in the summer months bring some type of ant barrier, you'll need it!!! They are still working on the improvements, so make sure you check out the sewer and electric box before you set up. Ask the rangers, they'll tell you what spots have been serviced or check it for you.

Thousand Trails / Pio Pico, Jamul, California

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

First let me say, the staff was amazing! They actually saved my trip, but I can't help but think, what if I had not been so lucky? I'm trying to keep this short... There must be a way for sites to be assigned so you know what you're getting before you arrive. To be told you have to go to a spot without full hookups (North campground, which is a total dump) and then go on a waiting list for what you thought you already had, is absurd! If no full hookup spots are available I could decide to come another time, if I know. With the current process, you may be in for an unpleasant surprise, that can ruin your trip! It's a very nice location, just needs some maintenance with the weeds and landscaping. Also, allow guest to select sites when they book! BTW... I'm not just making this review because I prefer to glamp... Even "Glamper Dude" can enjoy a little "outdoorishness"! I got lucky and got a nice spot. With a little maintenance and landscaping it would've been extremely nice! But what if I had to go on that waitlist, like my friend! The location is easy to access and easy to maneuver almost any size rig. The spots are not paved (at least none of the spots that are not for lease). Each spot has a gravel and dirt base. If they extended the paved spots to each of the trailer spots, immediate 2.0 upgrade! The hookups, if you're lucky enough to get a full hookup site, are conveniently placed and easy to back into. They were doing work on the electrical and sewer while we were there, which was a big inconvenience for our trip, but will probably add improvements for future guests. As I mentioned, the sites are nice, however the ones along the outside are better. The ones on the inner circle are back to back to other trailers and fairly close together. The sites on the outside rim back up to the mountain and in the evening present a very nice view. Various wildlife to include coyotes, tarantulas, and many flying insects that could leave you with quite a bump! All said, I would definitely go back but only if I'm assured that I will be on the southside and in one of the outside rim sites. We camped at Thousand Trails / Pio Pico in a Travel Trailer.

Even though this is a very rustic location, civilization is only a 15 to 20 minute drive down the hill. There you have restaurants, supermarkets, and a very nice fresh fruit stand on the way down.

Camp Williams Resort, Azusa, California

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

For this location, you have to know what you're going into and if that's your thing... then it's all good!! It's rustic and all dirt. There are only a couple of sites with full hookups (and they are not bad). Again, if you're looking for rustic!! The surroundings are beautiful and that I did enjoy even as a confessed Glamper. Beware of the power supply, it says 50amps, but no ... at least not consistently. Use a surge protector, for sure!!! It's mostly for tent campers, who fill the place up on weekends and don't mind overlapping their tents onto your site. But, they were all really nice and I met some good people that I shared a beer or two with. The staff is nice and very helpful. The kids loved it, but keep an eye out, there is wildlife, mainly rattlesnakes, raccoons and an occasional late evening bear. All said and done, when I'm feeling like getting down and gritty, aside from my glamping lifestyle, I'll go back!! We camped at Camp Williams Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Go for a stroll through the park in order to fully appreciate the beauty it has to offer... take your camera for some "out in the wilderness" shots!!!

Rancho Jurupa Park, Riverside, California

Date of Stay: April, 2015 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

This a very nice park, spacious, well maintained, but ALWAYS booked up!! It has great amenities for the kids and adults as well. Great for bike rides, walks and fishing. However, I do not recommend staying on the lake side (not if you are like me and prefer to glamp). The lake side was, in my opinion too rustic and occupied by too many shady looking characters!! You can instantly tell you're in a different place when you cross over the threshold to the lake. I also don't recommend staying where I stayed. I suggest the inner circle where there's grass and some trees. The outer sites (where i stayed)...straight dirt backed by weeds. There is plenty of space between the sites which is great!! I can't imagine any size rig would have too much difficulty maneuvering around within the park. We camped at Rancho Jurupa Park in a Travel Trailer.
