Maybe running before i can walk as I haven't even got my coach yet, but I'm collating a list a recommended campgrounds in the areas we would like to visit. This sounds like it should be one of them. My question is, do you think any of the sites will fit a 45' rig? The booking website suggests a max size of 40'.

UKGuy, I've seen some really large 5th wheel rigs in the CG so I'm guessing a 45' coach will fit in the 40' spots.

Wife and Moved from UK 5 years ago , we bought a 28ft a class and used the hell out of it then traded to a 36ft DP , just thinking changing to a left hand drive 45ft rig is a big step

You're not wrong. Used to have a 28' caravan (TT for our American friends) with my F250 which was 51' in length in total. Race truck I had was also 35'+ as well. 45' isn't small as you say, but if you're going to jump in, then it's got to be the deep end.

Sounds like your used to large trailers so no problem . The only thing I would say is that CA campgrounds were built in the 50s and quite a few limit at 36ft and less .
Other states no problem

I have read and heard that there are stickers, or "goat heads" thorns that are sharp and strong enough to puncture bike tires. Plan accordingly, to do what is the local solution in the way of tubes or types of tires.

We always stay at The Portal. One of our favorite places anywhere. But it's not in town, so doesn't fit the OP's needs.

Looks great. Do you stay in the resort or camping section? Sure I've heard somewhere that those staying in the camping section are somewhat 2nd class citizens/always trying to sell plots, or is that someone exaggerating?

We stay in the resort. Very comfy and the dog park is the nicest we've seen and our dog loves it. Never had anyone try to sell us a lot. We've only gotten sales pitches when we stay at a Thousand Trails campground.

Archview campground, about 5 miles north of town is the only campground with direct access to the Offroad Trails. The others are all nice, but in town.
