"Small family-friendly KOA on beautiful Lemolo Lake"

We are not usually big fans of private RV parks, but we wanted a place with full hook-ups to get everything charged and tanks filled or emptied as appropriate prior to 12 days of dry camping. The KOA at Lemolo Lake was perfect for that and we... Read more

"Amazing campground with so much to do! Hike, bike, beach, visit historic military areas, disc golf and more!"

We really enjoyed our stay at Fort Stevens, our only complaint – two days wasn’t long enough! We hiked around Coffenbury Lake, visited the Peter Iredale shipwreck and the historic military installations, rode our bikes on the beach and the paved... Read more

"Excellent camping option for Escapee members!"

Timber Valley is a large SKP RV park with over 200 spacious full hook-up sites and a huge boondocking area. I called the office to ask about available spaces and was happy to learn open spots are all first come/first served. The office was closed... Read more

"Great location to visit Kings Canyon, friendly hosts, overnight RV spots in the middle of a mobile home park."

The best thing about Sequoia RV Park is its easy access to Kings Canyon National Park. We used it as a base and for that it was perfect. I really wanted to love this place more, given the many 5-star reviews. The office was closed when we arrived... Read more

"Essentially a wide shoulder along Hwy 1 for RV parking, but great beach and oh what a view!"

I’m sure Rincon gets a lot of mixed reviews. There are definitely pros and cons to staying here. The beach is fantastic, but it can be difficult to access. If you’re relatively nimble you can make your way over the sandstone boulders from the RV... Read more

"Pleasant, small county campground tucked into the canyon. "

Tapo Canyon Campground has just 16 FHU spaces and you’ll want to have a reservation. They do not accept any cash/checks at the campground and direct you to mobile pay for same day bookings, however there is little/no cell service at the park. At... Read more

"Lovely urban park close to LA."

We were pleasantly surprised by just how nice Bonelli Bluffs was, with big shade trees and green grass throughout the campground. We chose it as our base to visit our daughter in Rancho Cucamonga and it was perfect. The park is located on the... Read more

"Large RV park with good amenities, a great base to visit Julian, CA."

We wanted to spend a day in the town of Julian and Stagecoach Trails is perfectly situated. We stayed two nights but didn’t get a chance to check out many of the amenities. The park is large, with both pull-though and back in spaces. Most sites... Read more

"Super host, several areas to choose from, waterfront camping for a great price."

Oxbow BLM campground is spread over a large area with several smaller camping areas tucked away. Don’t be put off by some of the negative reviews. There are areas, including the one we stayed at, where the noise of vehicles crossing the bridge is... Read more

"Friendly folks and a great deal for waterfront spots on the Colorado River."

La Paz County Park was a great find. At this time (Feb 2022) a waterfront site with a ramada (water only) was $27/ night, $150/week, and $330/month. Note there is also a $20 pet fee per stay. Sites are compact sand and pull in, so you are facing... Read more

Go Around the Bend: From Sand and Seas to Snow and Trees

Leaving our seaside digs at Rincon, we returned to Orange Grove RV Park, near Bakersfield on Friday, 3/11. Unfortunately, the crimp on the rear slide cable failed AGAIN. Sigh. Rog hit a hardware store...

Go Around the Bend: Cibola NWR, Gargoyle Canyon, and Julian

 Maybe a better title would have been Birds, Bees and Beer. Lol. Keep reading, you'll see. On Tuesday, 2/15, we had a blustery drive to Cibola National Wildlife Refuge. There are three dry camping opt...

Go Around the Bend: Lake Havasu City and Up SARA’s Crack

What a change of pace. On Tuesday, 2/8, we moved from our spacious, solitary desert boondocking spot in Kofa to a tight waterfront spot at La Paz County Park near Parker, AZ. That’s not all bad news,...

Go Around the Bend: Quartzsite Here We Come!

Before we launch into our desert adventures, I want to do a little housekeeping. Many of you got both my email with a link to our last post AND the automated email with the blog post. Let me just say,...

Go Around the Bend: The Show Must Go On…and On…and On…

So let’s talk a little about the Quartzsite RV Show, since that’s really what brought us here. The show is BIG, drawing crowds of up to 750,000. That fluctuates year to year and, of course, the pandem...

Go Around the Bend: Cottonwood Canyon: Marvelous and Muddy

We pulled into the Lone Tree campground in Cottonwood Canyon State Park near Wasco, OR around 11:30am on Monday, 6/14. We wanted to arrive early enough to snag a space since all sites are first come/f...

Go Around the Bend: 2020 – Baby Steps in a “Hold my Beer” Kinda Year

Wow. This has certainly been an…ahem…adventurous year. (There may be better adjectives, but most aren’t G-rated.) Fires, floods, global pandemic, murder hornets, all against a backdrop of political...

Go Around the Bend: Steamboat Springs and Sunset Point

We pulled into the Steamboat Springs KOA on Sunday, 9/15.  As KOA’s go, this one fit the bill. Close quarters for my taste, but we had big trees for shade and the Yampa River ran right through the...

Go Around the Bend: Flagstaff, Sunset Crater, and Wupatki Pueblos

Our plan was to spend two nights in Flagstaff at a private RV park to clean up and restock after 10 days boondocking. By the way, I’ve decided if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em. Henceforth, all RV dé...

Go Around the Bend: Organ Pipe National Monument

We arrived at Organ Pipe National Monument on Thursday, 3/21. We’re in the Sonoran Desert and there is a reason why it’s called the “green desert”.  Covering 110,000 square miles, it is the most di...

Go Around the Bend: Lakeside Living & Buns of Steel

We chose Washoe Lake State Park near Carson City for our next stop. At the best of times, Washoe Lake is a mere 12’ deep and during California’s drought years it was bone dry. We were happy to see...

Go Around the Bend: We’re in Hot Water Now!

Serendipity. What a gal! Things don’t always work out quite like you’d planned, sometimes they work out even better.  Our destination on Tuesday, 5/8, was a boondocking spot near the Buckeye Creek...

Go Around the Bend: South Beach Bums

Go Around the Bend: On the Road Again!

Yes! We are back in the bus. Not for a year this time, but we are planning to spend about 2 ½ months on the road. We left home on Thursday, March 15th and our tentative plan is to spend a few weeks...

Go Around the Bend: Getting Lucky, Finally Fishing, Family Time, and 100 POSTS!

Some days you just get lucky. We pulled into Indian Creek Reservoir campground, which was our Plan A, around lunchtime on Tuesday, 6/13. The campground is small, only 19 sites in the RV/Tent loop. Fe...

Go Around the Bend: Oldest Lake, Youngest Mountains and a Ghost Town

We arrived at the Mono Lake Scenic Area Visitor’s Center around noon on Friday, 6/9. (Happy Birthday, Rian!!!)  We talked to the staff about camping options, then unhitched the mule and went explorin...

Go Around the Bend: Where Angels Fear to Tread

We figured, and rightly so, that it would be extremely unlikely to find a site still open in the national park campground in the afternoon. So we went directly to Plan B and unhitched the mule to sco...

Go Around the Bend: Hoodoo Magic

Waaaay back in 1989, Rog and I did a six-week cross-country trip in our 24’ travel trailer. I was 8-months pregnant with Randi (one condition of driving cross-country was having a bathroom with me! L...

Go Around the Bend: The Peekaboo-Spooky Challenge

Go Around the Bend: Fruita Fat Tire Festival and DINOSAUR TRACKS!!!!!

We arrived in Fruita, CO early Wednesday afternoon, 4/26. We’re set up in another in-town RV park for the next five nights. Not my favorite kind of place, but the whole purpose of this visit is to ge...

Go Around the Bend: Capitol Reef National Park – Let There be PIE!

Our jello plan allocated four nights for Capitol Reef National Park. I’d not heard much about the park, so I wasn’t expecting a brilliant green oasis framed by sheer red rock walls and golden sandst...

Go Around the Bend: Temple Mountain Boondocking and Into the Goblins Lair!

Although we’ve thoroughly enjoyed our time at Klondike Bluff, it’s time to head west again. We had a lovely sunrise and spotted a hot air balloon as we departed on Sunday, 5/7, to make our way to Gob...
