Lost Dutchman State Park, Apache Junction, Arizona

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very nice and very clean campground. we stayed in site 48 and had a huge site! it was very nicely outlined with rocks in a clover shape and raked clean. there is a nice picnic table an fire ring. the asphalt pad was level and had plenty of room for out trailer and truck, with room to spare. The pads are spaced far apart and the natural brush, trees and cacti provided privacy. the views of Superstition mountains and the incredible sunsets were spectacular. The water pressure was excellent, as was the power. (small gripe; both 50a and 30a receptacles were somewhat loose, no heat problems though) the dump station was clean with dual lanes, and had rinse water and potable water available. There are nice easy trails throughout , great for walking the dogs, who enjoyed all the new smells... Overall, this is a very nice park and we will return. We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

a five minute drive to Goldfield ghost town, a fun touristy place with stuff to see, eat and do. halfway there is Mammoth Mine Gift and Rock Shop, which, if you like rocks and dinosaur fossils, is one of the nicest shops we have been in. Clean, well organized and filled with quality fossils, unique gems and petrified wood artifacts. The owner is super friendly and knowledgeable. They also have horses for rent if you fancy a ride.

Big Fresno Fair, Fresno, California

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

We stopped here for an overnight stay. It is a fenced and gated location with power, water and sewer connections. The spaces are very small, basically on an asphalt parking lot located behind the livestock show area. It's not an RV park per se, I suppose its more for the fair personnel or attendee's. That being said, the staff on the phone and the night watchman were very helpful and polite. we arrived around 12:30AM and the Watchman met us at the gate and escorted us to the RV area. Since there was no one else around, we didn't have to unhook, which was a good thing. For an overnight stay, it was a good value. We were able to sleep securely, wake up with coffee and a shower before hitting the road again. It beat the heck out of a highway rest stop or Walmart parking lot. We camped at Big Fresno Fair in a Travel Trailer.

Ponderosa RV Resort, Lotus, California

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $62.00
Overall Rating:

This is a nice park, right on the American River. Like others have said, it is hilly and the roads are gravel and narrow, but it is a rustic, natural setting. We did not stay on the lower level near the river. Although those sites have a nice view, we preferred to stay in E1, which is near the top, nestled in a corner of cottonwood trees that are interwoven with wild grape vines. A very nice and quiet setting, with neighbors only on the left. We stayed for three nights and found the camp personnel friendly and helpful. Although the campground was nearly full, we didn't feel crowded, and on Monday the place really cleared out. There is good access to the river a short walk away and a nice pool area. (we did not use the pool though) The sites were clean, fairly large and level, and did not require any leveling aids. The water was good with adequate pressure. Power was clean, but with a full park in the middle of August, the voltage understandably was a little on the low side (104v-110v). We ran the fridge and water heater on propane to reduce the risk of low voltage problems to the A/C, which worked out fine. Overall, a nice stay and we would stay here again.

Mather Campground (NPS Campground), Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

We loved this campground. The sites are spaced nicely on the loops, with great open spaces between the loops. Very quiet, beautiful setting with elk wandering freely through the place. Our site, 127, was paved asphalt, not particularly level but in a wooded area. Nice campfire ring and table. My only complaint is the loop roads are one way and the pull through site is more of a semi circle on the road, which forced me to park my trailer with the door facing the street instead of the camp area. the sites on the other side of the road have the door facing the camp area. Not a deal breaker, and next time I will surely pay attention to the road direction when making my reservation. there is free potable water available near the free dump station so no need to tow a full tank of water with you. We will definitely stay here again. We camped at Mather Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Desert View RV Resort, Needles, California

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

we stayed here overnight on a trip to Grand Canyon. I made a reservation in advance and told them I would be checking in late and leaving early. I received an email confirmation and a text reminder the day of my visit. Just as I was told, the management had my reservation package waiting for me and I was able to leave payment in a lockbox at the office. The site was level, power was good and secure and water pressure was good. Although the sites were (typically) close, there are nice heavy oleander bushes on either side of the site offering privacy. The park is very conveniently located right off the highway, which brings me to my only "con." The highway and nearby train track do cause a bit of noise, particularly with windows open. Other than that, this is a nice park and we would stay here again. We camped at Desert View RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Yosemite RV Resort, RVC Outdoor Destination (formerly Yosemite South , Coarsegold, California

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $77.00
Overall Rating:

Just finished a four night stay here. Like others have said, this park is under renovation. Our stay was very pleasant, the sight was very nice, fairly level and a excellent patio right outside our door. The staff was friendly, and we frequently saw park personnel touring the park. There is a dog park which was an unexpected surprise. The power was reliable, the water was clean although a little low on pressure at 30 PSI. The Wifi signal was good and streamed Pandora with no interruptions. This park is more of a rustic place with modern amenities consistent with the forested surrounding. It is not a barren, concrete paved RV parking lot with no character. If that's your preference, you probably wont like it here. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and will return.

Tips for other Campers:

10 minutes to Coarsegold, you MUST stop at Zander's Coffee. 20 minutes to Oakhurst where everything you might need is. Bass lake and Yosemite are more or less 30 minutes away. OR, just relax in the park and enjoy the scenery and beautiful night sky.

Serrano Campground, Fawnskin, California

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Nice campground and... bonus! because it has full hookups in a National park. lots of trees, short walk to the lake. Our site, 64 on the snow berry loop, was level and had ample room to park our trailer and still have our truck on the pad. There are a lot of trails to walk/hike and it is fairly quiet though it is close to the highway and road noise is present. The power was clean, however, the 30 amp outlet was a little loose. It was not a problem during our stay as we did not need air conditioning. It got cold!! Reservations, especially for the full hook up RV sites, are difficult to get and you have to book early. Will definitely stay here again. We camped at Serrano Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Pinezanita Tent & RV Camping, Julian, California

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

This is a great park in a quiet mountain setting. It does have permanent residents living here, however, the park is very clean and everyone is very friendly. The oversize sites are hard packed gravel, shaded, level and easy to maneuver into with clean water, good pressure, electrical pedestals in good condition and plenty of room between you and your neighbor. Most of the preferred sites at the back of the park do not have sewer connections, but there are two convenient dump stations available. If you cannot live without a sewer pipe, there are many sites that have them available. There is wi-fi near the office, but not throughout the park and no cable either, but there is good cellular coverage and a good selection of movies to rent for $3.00 from the office if you want. Pet friendly, with lots of room to walk and a large grassy park near the top that our dogs love. The "lake" is more of a novelty as it is fairly low due to the drought California has been in. Staff is always kind and accommodating. Overall, this is not a "big-rig" luxury resort, treeless, paved in concrete, no privacy type of place with a clubhouse, pool, etc. It is a very nice park in a peaceful forested setting where you can enjoy a quiet evening around a fire of your own making. We camped at Pinezanita Tent & RV Camping in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Be sure to stop in Santa Ysabel at the junction of 78 and 79. There is a good bakery there with great sandwiches and more shopping for the DW. Just a few clicks further is Wynola. If you like micro brews, stop at "The Cooler" and sample the mead.

Just a short drive from Julian where there is plenty to see and do. Visit Rongbranch restaurant for an amazing chicken pot pie, then stop in Moms Pie House for an incredible apple dumpling. stroll the town, visit the shops and if you're interested, there is a mine tour a short distance north. Pan for gold and get an interesting tour of the mine for $10.00.
