Love to join you at any of these but will they accomodate long rigs and FULL hookups? Lynn and I can deal with dry camping but to encourage all there needs to be full hookups. How did those pioneers ever survive?


Ok...a true story for all of you. As some of you may have heard that I as a 14 year old 'immigrated' with my family to California from Michigan via Route 66 in 1952. One dusty hot late afternoon in Oklahoma, miles from anywhere, dad pulled into a gas station (all on dirt). Mom asked the attendant/owner if there was an overnight trailer park nearby. "No, but if you want you may park your rig behind the station and hook the garden hose and electric from the station," the man offered. Our 26' trailer had a bathroom but no holding tanks as didn't travel trailers of that day. So the gas station bathroom was left unlocked for us. Early in the cool of the morning we pulled out and continued ahead'n west. A few miles down the Rte 66 another motorist passed our rig and was waving furiously and pointing to the rear of our rig. Dad found a place to pull over....there were not many places as most of '66 was narrow and just 2 lanes. Well, as you may have guessed we forgot to disconnect the gas station garden hose and 50+ feet of it was trailing behind us. Dad and I unhooked the trailer (too difficult to turn around the rig). Dad drove back to that station with the hose and left some money for any damage. That is the kind of man my dad was. Full hookups today ARE nice.
Neil.

nice parks paula. the only problem is that the idea was that we choose a park closer, more centrally located than LSA for gas saving reasons. june lake is quite a trek for most people like me.

Angels Camp is 10 miles from me. I would be happy to check it if you like. There are also places in Columbia with full hookups.

I think Ginny needs to get out more for her recovery. So a short drive would be nice. I found that park by googling 'full hookup camping, ca.' There were a number of sites to look up. The Delta and Lake County had a big selection but not quite big enough. Someone could try looking too. There could be something that I missed. It was past my bedtime......come to think of it I have no bedtime any more.

Close place right on a gold panning river. 25 full hook up spots. Run by Reymolds Resorts. Shaded spots. Pool. Lots of historic towns nearby, shopping ect. Between Jamestown and Sonora. Max trailer length I believe is 38ft.

jim please do a scout mission for us. take lots of pics. discuss with management whether they would be willing to set aside a block of 25 sites so everyone could call in their own reservations. if we don't fill the block by a certain agreed date, then they could release the remainder of sites to anyone wanting reservations. but i bet we can fill 25 sites. check to see that sites are long rig friendly and the ease of access to park. and yes a campfire prohibition is a deal breaker. your our eyes and ears on the ground. doorgunner has the aerial eyes covered. haha

hi karin!

if we pick a weekend without a festival then i think it would be easier to get our big group reservations, especially late comers. and how often do we actually leave the rally to go do something? i like staying put to gab with everyone.

I called the Angels Camp prk. They will set aside group spaces and yes they do allow campfires. He said they would allow us to reserve and pay individually. So far they have weekends open in October. The park is located near but not on lake Melones. It is also within about a half hour of BigTrees state park, Murphys, Columbia State park, and many wineries. I can check the sites out later this week. They had an vintage Airstream motor home group last year.
