Trust me, we would love to see a Red Sox game in Boston one day!

BTW, we love watching the Padres play at Petco Park but it doesnt matter if the Dodgers are playing in Oakland, Anaheim, San Diego...Dodgers fans will always outnumber the home team fans, except maybe in San Francisco.
Still, Petco Park is a great place to watch a game.

Cal is great for camping but the speed limit blows and so does your fuel prices. Left Oregon a month or so and paid 3.29 for diesel and got to CA and it was 4.19. Add to the fact that everywhere is packed to the gills it's just not worth going there anymore. Sure we'll go back but not this year.


The official speed limit towing in California is 55 but its more like 70. Yes, our gas prices suck! You can still find lots of places to go camping in the summer and the winter. In the winter, we go camping in the desert (Death Valley, etc) and in the summer, its the Sierras (yes, there are plenty of places in the Sierras that you can get even without an advanced reservation).

I work for the Navy and I often camp in San Diego when I go in for work but I live up here by Big Bear. I get the best of both worlds!

How many other people can say that they can be in the mountains and down at the beach in just over hours???

Also, California has a bad reputation as being a "police state" and lots of crazy, insane people...well kinda. However, when you go camping, you run into many more like minded, good hearted people who love to camp and enjoy the outdoors, just like everyone else. Just my two cents.

I agree with another poster about the Grand Canyon Railway RV Park. The sites are good; walking distance to town of Williams, AZ, with lots of neat stores and restaurants..a good Mexican restaurant. You can ride the train to the Canyon (entertainment on the train, sack lunches and a tour bus when you get there).

Although I wouldn't call it a 'resort', there is a KOA rv park in Grants, New Mexico...It is built around a lava field, so the scenery is neat. Also, they have a menu and will make a meal for you...nice if you don't feel like cooking.

In Las Vegas a couple of years ago, we stayed at the Oasis RV Resort...it's not on the strip, but just a few miles away. Nice, clean, all amenities.

We really like the North Beach RV Park in St Augustine..lots of privacy between the sites and the ocean and beach are right across the highway.

If you ever go to California, research Casa de Fruta near Hollister, CA...it has everthing...RV park, Restaurant, and an open market with ever kind of fruit, nut, and wine...even a carousel for the youngsters. It's not the name of a town, just the name of an incredible "place".....In a couple of hours, you can drive the Big Sur.

Cannon Beach RV Resort in Cannon Beach, Oregon is great...the drive on 101 along the ocean is awesome. Mo's Clam Chowder is right on the beach..the view and the chowder are wonderful. The beach is pet-friendly.

Happy Traveling.....

I may list a few later but as for our world we stay at Casinos when we can as they offer full service and let you use the hotels pool and also many times are free to us. We normally don't RV for the glitz of the park but for the value of the area outside of the park. We do stay in Florida for the winter though.
