“The last resort”

Interesting area, very artistic fallout apoliptic feel. This is a free dispersed area off the access dike of Bombay Beach along the Salton sea. This place is a man made disaster ghost town that has been mostly abandon with everything else that went to the wayside of the Salton sea situation. Bombay beach has become an art creating place with lots of installments and really interesting creations of art. Would highly recommend checking it out even if it is just a day trip. There was two RVs on the beach when I was last there. Not sure how safe this place is, has a slab city vibe and not far from slab city. I would definitely stay here over slab city. Not sure how the locals feel about RVs camping out on the beach of Bombay. Definitely check out the art surrounding all the homes of Bombay. Nothing else like it. Feels like freedom in a post apocalyptic society. I like that it has become a place for artists. All the people I talked to there were friendly.

Active 55+ park

This park looks nice, we were unable to say due to age restrictions. Park is a 55+ park. Park looks nice and has golf. They have a sister park down the road called Sky Valley and I would recommend that park if under age 55. Staff are very friendly. They also have a farmers market weekly. Lots of exploring within an hours drive if you are into sight seeing like Palm Springs, architecture, arts, nature, history and man made disasters like the Salton sea. If you are looking for a place in the area and over 55 check it out.

Good spot to explore Pinnicales National Park

Good spot to explore Pinnicales National Park. Typical TT resort park off the beaten path, far out but nice place, we enjoyed our stay. At the time we were there a lot of the riverfront sports were out of order. Park does have a lot of those devil spikes in the grass so beware of those with the dogs or bare feet. I did see someone bare foot walking and I was confused as how he was not stepping on them little spiked mines/ thorns then it happened and he went down having to crawl back to the road and get shoes. Pinnacles NP has lots of great hikes, bird watching is a thing out here and home to the California Condors. Near the town of Gilroy home of the garlic festival. A little out of the way but a nice scenic backroad alternate from I5 or 99 if traveling north/south.

Nice TT near LA

This is a good location to explore LA and greater LA area, 45 min to Hollywood sign. Park is a large TT resort with recently remolded lodge in 2019. Great place to stay if you are a TT member road to resort is windy and narrow but easily manageable with larger RVs. The town of Acton is small rural town with a few stores. The area appears to be a flash flood area with heavy rains. We enjoyed our stay and mainly used it as a base camp to explore/ sight see LA. Does offer all the amenities TT resort park typically offer, but it is a TT so expect something to be out of order/closed such as laundry, pool or at least one amenity, but I have come to realize that is one of the bargain trade offs of TT membership.

Lots to explore near by & some of the best weather in the States during winter.

This is a great location if you are a Thousand trails member well worth it. If laying nightly defiantly better options for nightly rates. This is a very popular park and they do have stricter rules than other TT parks. The staff have always been friendly and easy going. The area park is next to I10 and does have lots of road noise, also a good amount of riff raff and homeless near by. The park does keep security tight as a precaution. Park is covered with palm trees and a few citrus trees you can pick from. Lots of stuff to do/see in surrounding areas. Would recommend if you are a TT member. Park is seasonal and not open year round.

Free BLM camping at the south entrance along I10.

This is one of the only options along the I10 southern entrance to Joshua Tree NP. Not sure why this app list it as $25. This is a place to park off the road near the south entrance. I would be cautious leaving valuables unattended if breaking away from camp to explore, can be lots of riff raff, our stay was nice and is a great free overnight option.

Welcome to Sky Valley

Great resort style camping. This park is 25min from anything but that’s one reason I like it. Lots of exploring within a hours drive to great sights like Joshua Tree NP, Palm Springs, Salton sea, Idlewild, Borrego Springs, etc. The pools are very nice but can get overran by kids or people who don’t clean up after themselves, but that can be the case anywhere. Every Wednesday is a farmers market set up by entrance of resort. I was driving Dillon Road and would pass the Welcome to Sky Valley sign and took me a min. then realized that it is the album cover to Kyuss 1994 album “Welcome to Sky Valley” I thought that was very cool to stumble upon. Dillon road is a rollercoaster of a road up against the foot hills of Joshua Tree overlooking the valley and is a scenic byway. Along the San Andreas fault line check out Coachella Valley Preserve on 1000 Palms road, a natural Palm Springs oasis in the desert.
