"Gorgeous! Gorgeous! Gorgeous!"

We found ourselves in a cold, wet January in SoCal and after a few weeks of "dry" camping (ironically it was anything but dry) we were craving some hookups to get some heat into the trailer and our bones. Hook-ups on the California Coast can get a... Read more

San Clemente State Beach San Clemente, CA
1014 days ago

"Fantastic views and spacious sites!"

This campground is in a great location on a bluff. It's a short, steep walk to the excellent San Clemente State Beach. Walk one way and you can get to the pier in downtown San Clemente, and the other way is Richard Nixon's old home. There are... Read more

Doheny State Beach Dana Point, CA
1014 days ago

"Right on the beach! "

The location of this campground is hard to beat. It's right on the beach and walking distance to Dana Point and its harbor. If I was just coming for a weekend, or with a group of friends I would stump up the extra cash for the sites that are... Read more

Campland on the Bay San Diego, CA

O'Neill Regional Park Trabuco Canyon, CA
1121 days ago

"OK, but somewhat uninspiring park."

We stayed here after failing to find anything by the coast for Thanksgiving week. The park is perfectly fine and there are some nice hikes from the campground. Generally this is suburban Orange County, which is not my ideal destination. It was... Read more

Lone Rock Beach Big Water, UT
1127 days ago

"Great views and close to lots of cool stuff"

We had planned on camping on the beach but it was actually way too crowded up there so we elected to stay in the gravel parking lot nearer to the entrance and we couldn't have been happier with our spot. We had a fantastic 280 degree view of the... Read more

"Fantastic Park, So So Location"

It's hard to disagree with any of the 5 star reviews of this park. It is easily one of the smartest, well equipped and best maintained state parks we have ever visited. It feels like an upscale RV Resort but with spacious sites! That's a good and... Read more
