California is huge. How long are you intending to stay and what do you want to see?

You don't say what type of accommodations you are looking for. Everyone likes something different, are price, location or certain amenities important? In Vegas we always stay at the Las Vegas Motorcoach Resort. Our second choice there would be Oasis.

What part of SoCal are you wanting to visit? Lots of options depending upon where you want to go.

Golden Shores RV Park in Long Beach is a nice park and close to Los Angeles.

We are on our way and plan on staying at Nevada Treasures in Pahrump (access to Vegas and Death Valley). Hope this is a good plan. If anyone has stayed there; how's the internet?

We stayed at the Oasis in Las Vegas and really enjoyed it. While in Los Angeles, we stayed at the Malibu RV Park, up the hillside from Malibu Beach. It may be pricey and cramped, but the view is absolutely fantastic. You have nice day trips to Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica and wherever. Hey...if you've never been there before and are not likely to return, why not enjoy yourselves?

Well, they said "day trips," not "day road trips."

In Los Angeles, a day trip is probably along the lines of visiting Hollywood, Disneyland, or Santa Monica. A day road trip might be to San Diego or Santa Barbara or Joshua Tree. But neither would include 700 miles to Redwood National Park.

As for Las Vegas, Hitchin' Post RV Park is nothing to write home about, but the laundry room is pretty incredible.

Haven't been there, but a side trip to Death Valley is a great idea. It might still be a little warm there, though. We spent a week there in February and did not get to see and do everything we wanted to do. Makes sure you make time to see Scotty's Castle.

Oh, and for LA. We just spent a week there (in a hotel, yikes, long story) anyway, given a choice, we would have stayed at Golden Shores in Long Beach in the RV. Don't miss the space shuttle Endeavor at the California Science Center, if that's something you might enjoy. Admission is free, parking is $10. The Pompeii exhibition is very well done. Although, there is a fee for that one.

Another option for the So Cal area is Sunset Vista, located very close to the beach in Huntington Beach. Just a parking lot with 50 amp and water. But you are parked just above the beautiful sandy beach with the ocean right in front of you. Very popular place for RV's.

We spent three nights here on our way to the desert this month and loved it.

You can find info about it on the Huntington Beach city site.
