I can't tell you our favorite spots...If I did, the word would be out and they would be crowded.

I'm not telling. Hint: It's in Needles, CA.

If you can get by on 30 amp service, our absolute favorite is The Desert Gem RV Park in Salome, AZ. It's about 30 miles from Quartzsite.

...and we couldn't get a site.

I would bet most people feel this way when they find a nice, small park that meets all of their wants and needs.

For a commercial park, anytime we're near Memphis it's the Tom Sawyer RV Park. Actually in Arkansas a couple miles south of I-40. It's ON the Mississippi River (50' away) and fun to watch the tug boats with their loads.

X100--- Antime you are in a unfamiliar area, you just cannot beat Corp. Of Engineer parks.

Many other parks can take lessons on how to built and maintian a campground from them.

Even a bad COE parks is OK.... some are great.
As I type this, we are at one of the great ones.
In the middle of Texas, 10 miles from a large city, (have been for two weeks, will be for another two)....$12 a day with Golden Age Pass.
Full hookups, (free 50A electric).
Today we are one of only two rigs in a loop with 12 FHU sites, and 15 water/50A electric sites, ($10 with Pass).

Golden Shore RV Park, Long Beach, CA

We don't have a particular favorite, but Golden Shore was a great find for us. There are not that many RV parks in this area and it is convenient to places that matter to us. You can actually walk to the landing for the Catalina ferry, restaurants nearby, etc.

FWIW

Happy New Year

If your at the French Quarter RV Resort, I feel your (pain), everyone should have a chance to witness that scene, so much to do.

We live in Indiana and are still usually weekend warriors, and I have to say most any Michigan state park would be on our list, almost all have lakes, utilities and quit a few have waterfront spaces, like being at the old cottage except now it portable.

I also follow a Blog called Wheelin it and have used many of thier suggestions, they are spot on.

State and COE parks are great. Our favorite is a National Forest Service Park....but if I put it on here, it will get crowded.

I'll second this motion. The not for profit camp grounds (local, state, COE, DOD,,,) are much better than most of the comercial parks.
