"Very good"

We grew up in T.O. and Camarillo and drove past all the rv's parked along the old highway many times and have always wanted to stay here. Had to move to Seattle before we did :). The highway is a little noisy and you are pretty tightly packed nose to tail, but just a few steps further west from your rv door and you're on the beach. Hard to...

Clubhouse with big screen and pool...

The baths and showers are good and water spigots are scattered around the campground. There is also a dump station available but they...

"Almost impossible to work if you need reliable internet"

The internet situation is really the biggest problem with this place. You’ll have full bars and great service but it’s so congested it will be useless for any data function- this holds true for both AT&T and Verizon. This was our first thousand trails park, so not sure how it compares to others but it’s huge and there’s probably a parking...

We have stayed here twice on trips to & from AZ. Large clean sites. Very well kept. Easy access. $45 with Good Sam discount. Some fwy noise but not bad.
