Route 40-85-10-15-CG Suggestions

HI....Still here in NC... Hope to pull out this weekend or early next week, once new/used toad is setup with BLUE OX BX 1976. Then heading for CA via Rte 10..

Any suggestions on RV parks or stops we should look into on our way ?

We have have the following memberships, 1000T, C2C deluxe, RPI Preferred and Passport America members..

We hear thru the grapevine once we leave the San Antonio area going towards MISSION VIEJO area, not many CGs to stop at and take a rest.

We would like to be in Orange County (MISSION VIEJO) area by Thanksgiving.

First MAJOR trip of my life... ONE DRIVER..DW recovering from car accident on 9/10.10 and doing very well.

TIA

Route to Ca

Hi, we just drove from NC to SD, CA taking 20, 10, 8, 15. What we did was used our GPS to get the nearest campgrounds and called each one for rates and info. Good luck and enjoy your trip.

HI..Thanks... sounds like a place where we can stop... I will only drive for approx 6 hrs MAX.... So any break I can catch on the LONG legs would be a great help.. We were hoping to PLAN ahead, but that may not be realistic, considering this is my first cross country trip.

Again Thanks..

PJG

Mission RV in Fort Bliss, TX is one I have stayed at. I mostly stay at Military Bases when I can but try to have an private CG or two. In Tucson if I can't get in the base I use to stay at
Click here: Beaudry RV Resort, Tucson Arizona but I hear they are closed, chapter 11. I travel every year from NH to CA and mostly have my trip planned before I go. I pick 2-3 parks near my next stop and put them in my Garmin and map s/w.

Leaving next Thursday, can't wait ---- getting too cold here!

Thanks again.. Are you Military RETIRED ? For this trip its pretty much get to CA safe and sound w/o stress. Beaudry is closed... Closed right after MONACO gathering first week in OCT.

You must be better than me with this GPS thing and finding CG on the way.. I don't really want to go 20 miles out of my way for a ONE night layover.

Not sure if phone calls to the Memberships that I own would be beneficial for them to suggest places on my route..

TIA

I use Google Maps to find CG's. Zoom in on an area then do a campground search. You can search for state parks, private cg's, etc. Click on the location and all the info you need is there including RV Parks reviews and you can also do an aerial to see how close to highways, rails roads, etc. It helps for planning and also when the plan didn't work as expected.

There are plenty of camp grounds after San Antonio...don't know if any are part of your membership group. Any particular reason to venture off I 40? Seems like a straight shot from NC and lots to see/visit.

Ronnie, only reason for Southern route is to avoid the possibility of BAD weather. I do have a 8 leg plan in my GPS for RT 40.

We were suppose to lv 9/10/10..

TIA,,

Understand about the weather concern when you reach the higher elevations...Albuquerque to Flagstaff. I have driven I 10 from California to Florida and I 40 from Tenn. to Ca. Seems to me that there is more to see/visit on I 40. I also drove I 40 to Little Rock then I 30 to Dallas/Ft worth then I 20 to its intersection with I 10 (South of El Paso) an option in the event of bad weather forecast in the higher elevations. I have a list of RV parks that I used on each these travels. Let me know if you are interested.

Hmmm, Ive been up and down 10 from calif border to orange county.
The only nice ones I recall seeing(dont stay at any as Im a dry camper) is in Yorba Linda under the cottonwoods on the river,but thats ony a few miles from your destination.
its all desert until you get to yorba linda. There are some nice "city"ones once you reach indio,palm desert ,palm springs etc, Google maps and you can find them and see if interested.
There are truck stops when you reach Carrizo summit and then just east of indio near the casino. really not much else I recall.
If I think of any Ill post when i remember.

Hi, yes you are correct about YL, we visited Yorba Linda in March.... by car... It was nice but still pricey. I believe $900 plus for a month.. So we are thinking Elsinore Hills..

Thanks for the feedback.
