We stayed at Marina Dunes RV park once. They are right on Hwy 1 which at that location is a busy freeway. Sites to the left of the entrance are a bit larger than the narrow sites on the right. It is expensive; that's why when in the area, we stay at Veterans Memorial Park. It's $27 vs $60 per night, although Marina has full hookups.

Thank you for your info on dunes. We currently stay in Salinas at over $100 a night so we are just looking for an alternative when we get our trailer road worthy. Veterans does not have good online reviews but i think we'll check both of them out this fall when we go again to the hotel.

We will add Laguna Seca to the check it out list when we visit this fall.

Half Moon bay SB is nice. It will be closing in October of this year and will reopen in the spring because they are adding water and electric hook ups! They have a dumpsite also. Plenty of sights big enough there. Might be a good place to rally.
You have to be careful with coastal campgrounds. The coast is so popular that they really try to pack 'em in. We stayed at Santa Cruz Redwoods Resort and while the campground was really pretty, our awning was inches from the tent trailer next to us. Privacy was a bit of an issue. Especially when our tent trailer neighbors decided to get 'frisky' the next morning.

There is a KOA campground, Costa Noa, about 20 mi north of Santa Cruz on Hwy 1 we've stayed at a couple times. Full hookups, large sites in the the first loop, good restaurant, store, and spa on site; the heated restrooms with large showers are to die for. It's about the same price as Marina Dunes.

I think you should be able to fit at Kirk Creek near Big Sur - the sites are rated up to about 42', but would like to hear from someone who has camped there to be sure...

Fellow forums members, ASwiffy and newroswell, have camped at Kirk Creek in their 30' Flying Cloud. As I understand they had a great time and loved the campground.

Update on Some Coastal Sites

Hi guys & gals! Thank you for all of the suggestions and recommendations. Keep 'em coming! So far, we have fit our tow rig and 31' International in the following Camps. I'll keep the descriptions short and to the point:

Benbow RV Park (Northern Cali) - big pull throughs, super nice staff, laundry, etc. Full Hook-ups.
Alexander Valley Campground (Northern Cali) - big pull thrus, on the river, near the casino.
Manchester State Beach (Northern Cali) - first come-first served. no hookups, but dump at camp. B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L.
Manchester KOA (Northern Cali) - big sites, KOA = 'nuf said
Southbeach State Park (Oregon) - big enough sites, crowded
Viento State Park (Oregon) - some big sites, first come-first served, super noisy train all day and all night.
Memaloose State Park (Oregon) - lots 'o sites, full hookups, very close to HWY.
Waldport KOA (Oregon) - super friendly staff (above & beyond nice), clean sites, quiet grounds, KOA amenities.
Umpqua Lighthouse (Oregon) - a few sites big enough, super close quarters, hook ups,
Cape Blanco (Oregon) - first come-first served, some big sites, windy, partial hookups, windy, private, windy.
Oceanside RV Park (Gold Beach, Oregon) - full hookups, pull through sites, at the jetty, beautiful sunsets, close quarters, super clean facilities.

If you have a bigger rig like ours, stay away from:
-Albee Creek & Burlington in the Humboldt Redwoods State Park, CA. Nerve racking drive through incredibly rough roads and insanely narrow passages/sites through the redwoods. Bring your tape measure.

Happy travels!!!!!

xo, regina taylor
