Anyone made the trip from Pensacola Fl/Mobile,Al to the west coast. Thinking of a trip from Mobile to Newport Beach, Ca along I-10. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Gulf to West

We made the trip a year ago May from Gulf Shores to home in Bermuda Dunes, CA. Johnson Creek in Irving Texas was a nice park to stay in and stands out in our memory. Texas has large populations of deer so drive carefully. Have a great trip!

I love golf more than golf loves me...

Last October I went from Avalon Landing RV park in Milton Fl to El Centro, CA.

Here's what I did:

Lakeside RV Park
Livingston LA

San Jacinto Riverfront RV Resort
Highlands, TX

Buckhorn Lake Resort
Kerrville, TX

Van Horn KOA
Van Horn, TX

Lordsburg, KOA
Lordsburg, NM

Augie's Quail Trail RV Park
Gila Bend, AZ

Sunbeam Lake RV Resort
El Centro (Seeley), CA

I am a retired full-timer, so none of them where "hard/long" days. I REALLY liked the first three parks/resorts. The two KOAs where good. Augie's is out in the middle of nowhere, owned by a retired Navy guy! Good park, quiet, HUGE Sites.

Hope this helps.

Johnson Creek is west of Kerrville, TX. on Hwy 27 not Irving, TX. It is a nice place to stay. Have stayed there several times.

Stop at the Caverns of Sonora just west of Sonora, Tx and less than 10 miles off I-10. It is the most beautiful cavern I have ever seen. They have a small RV park with water and electric for $20/night. Texans are some of the friendliest people in the country.

I enjoyed Saguro National Park and the Desert Botanical Garden in Tucson, AZ. There is also a good RV wash not far off I-10.

I drove I-10 from Houston to Phoenix. It is a VERY desolate and boring drive most of the way. It was also very windy in the Spring and hard driving with the crosswinds. If you have the time, stop often.
