My favorite is Kirk Creek on Hwy. 1 in the Los Padres Nat'l Forest. The campground sits on a bluff on the west side of the highway and has great views of the Pacific. There are no electrical, water, or sewer hookups, but the bathrooms do have flush toilets.

When we were there this summer, I heard that the campground was going to close for a couple of weeks in mid/late October for some road resurfacing work.

Here are some parks we have frequented---all quite nice and accomodating for your rig--most have pull throughs. You can plan a different route up and back and use most of these--depending on what you want to see. All full hook up all 50amp all clean and nice all private---so cost more than a public park.


Heading North North:

Newport Dunes in Newport California.

Emerald Desert Palm Desert---1-877-624-4140

Pechanga RV---Temecula---Reservation Casino----really nice park 1-951-587-0484

Flying Flag RV-Buellton--close to Solvang, Wineries, North of Santa Barbara 1-805-688-3714

ON I-5 between LA and Sacto there is not much but for an overnight there are parks at Lost Hills (Lost Hills RV) and Santa Nella which are just fine accomodations---like I say for one night.

Wine Country RV--Paso Robles--clean nice, view lots, great part of California---Morro Bay, Hearst Castle all close 1-805-238-4360

Marina Dunes RV--North of Carmel---small park nice---1/2 mile trail walk to protected seashore-about 20 minutes from Carmel1-831-384-6914

49er Village RV South of Sacramento----1-800-339-6981

Premier RV Redding---nice smaller park-creek running through--all the Premier Parks are well managed clean and nice-1-530-246-0101---

Premier RV one just North of Eugene Oregon---1-541-686-3152

Crown Villa Bend Oregon---a very nice site in a very nice town to visit---close to Sisters Oregon 1-541-388-1131

TRi-Mountain RV---just off I-5 about 20 miles inside the Washington border---a stopping for the night kind of place--clean--easy access.



Check these out and look them up---If you decide to head up or down 395----a really nice drive 8500 ft pass so take your pick and watch the weather. The picture of our MH is on this road.

Boulder Creek around Bishop

A really nice one in REno/Sparks---beside a Marina believe it or not.

A small cute one in the sticks in Likely, California


Have a great trip---right after Christmas we are heading South and will use many of these parks as we have over the past ten years---heading to Tucson.

My favorite stopping places on I5 between LA and Sacramento:
Sommerville Almond Tree RV Park, 41191 South Glen Ave, Coalinga CA (Jayne Ave exit, 200 miles south of Sacramento)
Kit Fox RV Park, Patterson CA (Patterson exit, 100 miles south of Sacramento)
There are a couple of parks right along the freeway south of Redding
There is a KOA in the town of Mount Shasta, north of Redding
In Oregon, just past Medford is Oregon State Park at Rogue River OR - watch for signs for rest stop and the RV park, which are to the left of the freeway when you are going north.
If you are an Elks member, many of the California Elks Lodges have RV parking for very reasonable rates.
These are all good for overnight stops..clean, easy access to freeway, pull thrus

Seven Feathers in Canyonville, Oregon...you won't be sorry. I also have stayed at the Premier in Redding, CA and Salem, OR and both were well kept, friendly, I would stay again. Have fun

We will do some time on both. 101 on the way north after Frisco Then some time on the 5 for the return trip. I am open to ideas as we have two weeks to explore

Two suggestions along 101 north of San Francisco:

If you don't mind dry camping, Lawsons Landing at Dillon Beach north of San Francisco is a very unique experience....open camping behind the dunes a short walk from the ocean at the mouth of Tomales Bay. I don't think there is anywhere else like it.
Caspar Beach RV Park between Mendocino and Fort Bragg is in a secluded cove right across the road from the state beach...tight spaces, but will accommodate big rigs adequately. Just off the main road...lots of beautiful scenery and excellent place for hikes.
Pomo RV Park in Fort Bragg
Porto Bodega and a couple of other campgrounds at Bodega Bay. There is a state campground there...I don't think they have hookups, but beautiful setting.
The drive up the Oregon Coast is beautiful and there are many campgrounds along that stretch of highway....really nice Elks campground north of Florence.

This is one of the most scenic places you'll ever stay at- right on the Sacramento River. Also try Durango RV Resort in Red Bluff, Ca.
Delta Marina Yacht Harbor

A few we liked were Friendly RV Park in Weed CA, in the pines with a beautiful view of Mount Shasta (big rig friendly), Emerald Forest RV park in Trinidad off the 101 for camping inside a huge redwood grove (a little tight, no low branches, and doable in a big rig) and Seven Feathers in Oregon to be truly pampered.

Great tool.
Also would allow you to check out all the recommendations listed, check out their websites and get honest reviews of previous campers....prices, directions and phone numbers.

Might give you some other ideas also, click on the state and then take it from there....never know what you will find on it..

We use it alot and has given us good planning tool for big riggs etc.

Go to Seattle every summer and allways try to stay at Seven Feathers in Cayonville-can't say enough good things about it. Indoor pool and complete private bathrooms not a bank of showers and toilets. Also like Premier Resorts in Redding and Eugene
