Third stay in last 8 years. This is a mountainside park with lots of trees and boulders. Hard to avoid obstacles in a big rig. Came up on a Friday at 3PM check-in time and spent an hour finding a suitable site. First site selected was too sloped to allow Levelers to work. Next site over worked with a little jockeying. Sewer sites are all taken by seasonal members with leases. Dump station tight to get into. Nice cabins. OK for big rigs but perfect for smaller units. Very few 50 amp sites also taken by seasonals. Wonderful wilderness camp near to charming town of Idyllwild. Trip up the mountain is not for the squeamish. Worth the trip.
Reservation confirmation in email said the site was a 61 foot pull thru. When we arrived, the space is 42 feet at best. No problem as we had to disconnect the toad anyway. When we arrived at 7 PM on a Thursday, dinghies, trailers or tow vehicles were blocking roads as they unhooked. So we had to wait a lot. Not Rver's fault as the park is very tight. Obviously built when RVs were 30 foot at best and not towing. Utility pedestals seemed in poor condition though all worked OK except for fuzzy cable. Sat dish not usable due to big leafy trees.
Par for Quartzsite. Many parks close the office at noon post season. This one opens from 3 to 6 for the overnighters. Verizon LTE works well so didn't bother with parks Wi-Fi. We had two iPhones, an iPad, a MacBook and a Roku streaming device. All worked well on our Verizon Jet Pack. Great for an overnight. Would stay here during the big show in January if we decide to do that.
Was apprehensive after reading a few less than glowing reviews. Fears were ungrounded. Was a last minute decision to come. Wife insisted on going to the ocean. Not much available at usual locations on such short notice. Park is exactly as represented on their website. Extremely neat and well maintained. Touch up painting and landscaping happening constantly. Great lobby/lounge with ping pong, football, "bar shuffleboard, pool table and two big screen TVs. Small store only drawback but Target etc., only 3 miles away. Beach access is as promised. Beach is small and high tide takes up most. Still, it is lifeguard protected and swimming beach separate from surfing, etc. Light rail comes by very close every 30 minutes or so until late evening, picking up again after 5AM. Short trains and except for one late in day. Commuter rail mostly.
Park was exactly as advertised. No surprises. Adjacent to motel. Office, pool etc., are located in the motel. Great restaurants in Ashton. About 50 miles from Yellowstone but we were delayed and lost our reservations in West Yellowstone. This was as close as we could get on very short notice. Clean and quiet. No WiFi at RV park but 3g worked well on my iPad and DW's Verizon AirCard worked well. Open sky for satellite. Great State Park nearby. Would stay again and see other sites. Took grandkids to Yellowstone Bear World, a private zoo/rescue park in Rexburg. Very nice. They fed baby bears and saw rare white elk (not albino). Bears, moose, elk etc., were roaming kind of free with a winding road to view them.
Stayed as TTN/NACO members while touring Yosemite. Park was great. Easy to access pull through sites with clear sky for satellite and room for tow dolly. Store was very expensive but prices in Groveland are much better. Yosemite NP in July was a madhouse, but Yosemite Lakes was great. WiFi worked well but only in or adjacent to the great lodge.
Stayed here for two nights as a stopover on the way to Yellowstone from Yosemite. Very outdoorsy. We parked in the Cliffs section. Just a paved lot with spaces wide enough to park out tow dolly next to the RV. WiFi is great in the nearby lodge. It's a nice walk to the store or lake. One of the better TTN places we've been to.
Park is very adequate for Vegas. We camped overnight this year just after Memorial Day. Park is clean with a great pool and large dog run. Staff is very friendly. Boulder Station casino is a short walk away. Food there is good and inexpensive. The buffet was a great bargain if you join the players club. Nightly rate is for non TT members. We paid nothing as members.
Great park for exploring San Diego and vicinity. Lots to do there. Park is adjacent to a city park that is on the bay on one side and a beautiful marina full of boats of all types on another. Restaurants at the marina are great and very close. The bay front park is beautiful. Lots of activities for campers and the store is one of the best I've seen. Internet was fee based but most parks are moving to free Wi-Fi so that may get better. Pull through sites are spacious and back-in sites are adequate. Rigs are parked a little close when full.
We have been here since before Thanksgiving 2008. Going on four months now. The park is very clean and well organized. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The laundry room is one of the best I've seen. Shade is hard to come by which is no problem in winter but may be in summer. The only negative is that the "store" is almost non-existent. Only a few RV and laundry items available. However, shopping is close and plentiful with the Spark Marina a block away. You can walk to Western Village Casino and many other places. I think that in summer, the park would feel a little close as there isn't really much room for 2nd vehicles and visitor parking is limited. Still, a better deal than the Grand Sierra, in my opinion. We payed a 28 day rate at $645. This will go up considerably on April 1.
We registered for an overnight stay while traveling home from Reno to Lake Elsinore. The starter on our Diesel Pusher failed and left us stranded in the registration parking area, blocking half of the access to the park. The employees were almost all RVers who receive site rent in exchange for 20 hours a week. Friendly all, but limited in authority as you may expect. It was late on Friday and we could only get a tow service without any mechanical expertise. Ron, the owner only asked that we try to get towed out of the driveway as 70 RVs were expected the next day. We got towed to an out of the way location at the edge of the visitor parking area. No hook-ups. It took until Tuesday before a diesel mechanic could come 50 miles from Bishop to diagnose the problem. The new starter was over nighted and installed on Wednesday morning. Ron, refused to charge us for the four additional nights, even though the dry camping fee was $20 a night and we used all facilities. It is a quiet park but we were allowed to use the generator for battery top-off. Very shaded and 20 degrees cooler than the valley below. Perfect summer location with wonderful vistas. Especially if you fish or have kids. Pine Cliff is a family oriented, older, rustic facility with access to June Lakes only swimming beach and what looked to be great fishing. Store is excellent. Showers are one dollar with plenty of change available in store. A couple of the showers didn't work but the ones that did gave a long warm to hot shower (as the sign said ", the best buck ever spent." Park was started in 1956 so air conditioning is limited to only those with special needs. Seems to be patronized by mostly return customers. We plan to spend a long weekend there soon with the grandchildren.
