Boomtown RV Park Verdi Nevada
hi paula,

i've been to boomtown many times. the sites have grass strips and small trees in most of them. it's down the hill from the casino and freeway noise with nice views. the best thing about this park is it's very large. we could easily get all together here and late comers could easily get a site. unfortunately it is now a koa.

Kimber (Wally54) has been researching it a little and has some suggestions. Gold ranch was not one of them but is actully a nice find. We would not have thought of that one.
What she did come up with is the following:
  • American River Resort - americanriverresort.com - may not be big rig friendly. Neil suggested this one.
  • Ghost Mountain Ranch - ghostmountainranch.com - Don't know much about them...
  • KOA Placerville at Shingle Springs - koa-placerville.com - 45 full hookup sites, make your own reservations. Near wineries and historic Placerville
  • Far Horizons 49er village - 49ervillage.com - A little more expensive, near wine country. 329 full hookups. Lots of amenities.... Big rig friendly.
That is a start. I do like what uwe said and like I said, I don't mind driving a little to spend a weekend with dear friends. Kimber is really liking the KOA in Placerville..... They have goats and everything.

hey tim,

i've checked the reviews on the above rv parks on RV Park Reviews. ghost mountain gets terrible reviews so thats out. placerville koa i have stayed at. its mostly full of permanent residents and quite rundown. i would not return there. american river resort seems too small (sites and park) to have a large rally at. it would be perfect for a smaller rally. 49er village is a possibility. can anybody check it out for us?

We love going to the mtns. but I'm wondering about the casino oriented info. on the Gold Ranch site. Is it in a very developed area or out in the woods a bit?
Sounds like a good possibility, along with the others mentioned.
We do live in the land of many choices, don't we?
Take care,
hi janet,

the casino/gas station is right on i80. the rv park goes way back away from hwy and casino with tall trees and views of the mountains. this place or boomtown could work well.

hi uwe!

good to see you chiming in. we love LSA but some have expressed that we might try a new location. i don't know what will happen but we will definitely be back to LSA if not this year, then next year. i hope you will join us when we go back to LSA! rally on!

a possibility close to home...

if we really want to make the rally closer to everyone, there is a good location. everyone should be able to easily get to casa de fruita on hwy 152 at pacheco pass. even socals could get here easy by driving up i5 and over to pacheco pass. it is very large park so everyone could get their own reservations with no problem. it is a good park for rallies as some trailers could be set up facing each other with space for rally tables in the center. it has a pool and big playground for the kids. here is the website: Casa De Fruita

There's a Cabela's next to Boomtown now, somebody should check to see if the RV camping is still there. I know they took up a lot of truckers spaces so its a problem when I80 is closed for snow.
Glad I got to stop in at the Cassini ranch Sat night, wished I had gotten there before dark to see the place. Definately will try to get to the next one.

Hey Guys - newbie Pics

All,

We had a great time. It was a very fast weekend. We have much still to learn about the food and drink "standards"... I don't think I seen so many bottles of Zin at a party.

Looking forward to our next adventure with the group.

Ted and Marion.

Circle the wagons

This IS the 21st century. The irony to our difficulty today is that the pioneers just would find a meadow, circle the wagons, build a campfire in the center...and have a RALLY! The good old days were sometimes that good.

..........so ok, they didn't have full hookups....

Neil.

How about Brannon Island SRA, It's a state park on the delta, which means only water available, no elect or sewer, There is a pump out there.Just a thought, the group area's actually have RV spots, that's kinda different, I still do not know how to link the web site, parks.ca.gov

Stockton Delta KOA

Hi happy group
Sorry we missed you this year at Casini...hopefully we'll make it next year.
Here's a good centrally located California campground for your consideration...
Stockton Delta KOA
We stayed there a couple of months ago and thought it was a very nice place. Clean and very spacious.
