Gem on the river

We spent the weekend at this state park in site 49. The site was large with water and 50 amps. There was also a fire pit and it was paved and level. There is free wifi but we couldn’t connect from the site. It’s just a short walk though and it was fast. There is a camp store with ice cream, firewood and other necessities and a cute cactus garden and tortoise habitat.

We spent a great deal of time in the water as it was 100 degrees. The ranger warned us to stay on the side of the river as the speed boats are fast and don’t look! We did as he said and had a blast.

The only negative is that the water from the house hookups smelled. We took showers and it had the smell of sewer. I’m not sure what that is about but after a day in the sand you need a shower!

Beautiful lake views

We were supposed to be in site 173 at the Desert Tortoise campground in Lake Pleasant Regional Park. However, I’m not sure how ANY RV could possibly get in that site! The incline is ridiculous and our 15,000 pound fifth wheel would certainly roll into the lake! We ended up changing to a shoreline campsite. Of course, they made us pay a change fee. You can park pretty much anywhere along the shore. Most of the spaces were filled even though it was only 1 pm (check in time). We found a nice spot on the hill with a beautiful view of the lake. I think we got lucky because they are still letting people in for shoreline camping seven hours later and it’s full!

Close to downtown!

This was a nice KOA near the French Quarter. The KOA offers transportation to the French Quarter for free! It was such a nice perk! The pool is very nice and the sites are clean, level and spacious. We enjoyed our time here. Take time to explore the area. Shopping is nearby.

AMAZING place!

From the second you enter the park, you feel like you are at a five star resort instead of a state park. The facilities are amazing. There is a pool, hiking trails, bike trails, beach, planned activities and more. It's beautiful and it's a huge complex. Our site was a pull through right on a swampy area. Within a few minutes we saw an alligator which sort of freaked us out but was totally cool at the same time. I suggest staying a week. You won't have time to see everything if you don't!

Overnight stop

We stopped here for an overnight on our way to Florida. It is a Passport America park so we used our discount. The owner was super helpful and very nice. We got in late and he was very accomodating. The site was level. There are many residents in this park but they were very friendly. It is run down but you can tell it used to be very nice. Worth an overnight.

Gorgeous beach!

We stopped here on our way to Florida. Pulled our 38 foot fifth wheel right onto the sand and spent just one night. Woke up to the most beautiful views just 50 feet from our camper. We were the only campers on the beach in December. The weather was in the 60s and sunny. We will be back when we can spend longer!

Tips: Be careful you don't get stuck in the sand! Check before you pull out on the sand to avoid getting stuck. Also bring mosquito spray!

Nice enough

We were visiting friends in Manteca and this was the only campground not flooded! It was nice enough. There are a lot of long time residents.

Free!

Great boondocking site on our drive to San Diego! You can’t beat the price!

Nice stop

We stopped here when we were so tired we couldn’t drive any further. Staff was wonderful and we had a shady spot. We didn’t use the amenities other than the site. Would stop again.

Keep driving

We were out in a site in the back with the full time residents. The grass was not mowed and it was very nasty. Will not stop again.

Wonderful stopover along 99

we stopped here twice just for a night on our way to and from LA. It’s beautiful! The pool is gorgeous. The sites are meticulously maintained. Wonderful place to spend the night or even longer.

Great renovation

This is one of the nicest kOA campgrounds we have visited. They recently redid the pool area and it’s like a resort! Only drawback is that the campground is about a 15 minute drive from the beach. It’s a great place to stay to explore San Diego!

Pricey!

We stayed here for Labor Day weekend and it was packed! There are no hookups but you can use a generator. We were surrounded by tent campers with 15 people in a site who partied all night yet complained when we used our generator during generator hours. It’s a hike to the beach and even then it’s more of a surfer’s beach than one for kids.

Beautiful beach!

One of our favorite spots because you are right on the ocean! However the spots are very tight and it’s always busy. They also lock you in the campground at 8 pm. That makes it difficult to go out at night. Well, impossible. The bike paths and beach will keep you busy!

Our favorite beach

Silver Strand is set in the perfect spot: halfway between Coronado and Imperial beach. The bike path is amazing and you can go under the road to the bay to enjoy kayaking or SUP. The beach is great but in the spring we always see signs telling us to stay out of the contaminated water. So be careful. The signs disappear in the summer. The sites are tight. If you have a larger camper you need the first or fourth row!

Great one night stopover

Stopped for one night as we drove south. It was a passport America park and was inexpensive and easy to get to.

Near Orlando parks

Moss Park is a great hidden gem. It’s about 30 minutes to Disney. The sites are great and it’s nestled between lakes. Amazing wildlife too!

Awesome!

We stayed at Jetty Park for three nights in december. The weather was gorgeous. We were in the inlet sites with just water hookups. Loved watching the cruise ships pass by! Beach is beautiful and fishing is great!

Tight spots, beautiful place

Hanna Park would be five stars if it was just a little more groomed. We have a 38 foot fifth wheel and it was tough getting it in! The trees are hanging over the road so prepare to scratch your rig. Other than that, it’s amazing! The beach is beautiful and there’s a lot to do both in the park and nearby.
