The last time I was at McClure, I don't remember it as being friendly to larger RV's.
When was the last time you were in there and which campground did you think was the nicest?
Believe it or not, I actually knew the Barrett family when I was a kid. We had a mining claim 14 miles out of Coulterville and my grandparents were good friends with Frank and his wife. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>
I had to look it up.
Actually, I stayed at McSwain in "G" loop.
Click on the link and then click on the "Detail Map" link on the lower right side of the page.
I did not stay there in the summer when it supposedly has issues with tent campers in the other camp loops.
The G loop would be a little tight if you had to back in with a 40' MH. My MH is 34' and change and I had to back in. It was a little tight but not a problem. Some of the sites are pull through which would mitigate this issue. The G loop has elec / water at each site and there is a dump station nearby. You can make reservations for a specific site in G loop to insure you can get a drive thru site.
I liked camping here in the off season and would return. If you like fishing it is pretty decent.
I stayed there while commuting to Sacramento for a week which minimized my travel time by over two hours. Otherwise,I would only stay at Flag City on an overnight if I was traveling north or south across the valley. I would think there would be other parks in the foothills if you were visiting up there. The park filled up to half to three quarters full almost every evening. I would assume this is transient traffic off the freeeway.
Nice older park. Close to wineries in Amador County. Will accomodate 40' MHs but I'm not sure about anything bigger.
The noise from the highway, if they park you near the fence, is ongoing all day and night. I've stayed there many times.
I have stayed here several times although I haven't used the golf course yet. It is a nice park which I'm sure would accomodate big rigs. Most RVers I know that go there use it as a weekend or long weekend getaway to relax and play golf. Not much else nearby that I am aware of, for entertainment / sight seeing.
