Research

I've been looking at the state park web site for ca. I looked at the site for seacliff. found out that there is a group called " Friends of Santa Cruz State Parks" Friends of Santa Cruz State Parks. I'm calling them tomorrow to put in my opinion. Seems as speaking with them would get more activity than contacting the state. Yup I'm on it. and it's only 127.5 miles from me tho there according to mapquest. How bout others calling or contacting them thru their web site. DG

Blu Hwy lady,

Ya'll need to leave there and come to Georgia. Great camp grounds from the Atlantic Coast to the North Georgia Mountians. Friendly people and good times. Just don't tell the "peckerwoods" where you went to, we wouldn't want them to follow you and spoil what we have.

Vintage / new Airstreams

Hi, What a jerk; Let me at him!

I don't understand this ten year thing; My trailer, that we bought new in September 2004, and plan to use for twenty years or more, God willing; Might only have seven and one half years left. So my once brand new, but not vintage, trailer will be too old to use in some campgrounds?

Once again this topic begs for a pinned thread on campgrounds that refuse entry or make life for vintage owners difficult, if not impossble to use. Seems like every year there are 2 or 3 posts about some place with arbitrary "rules" on age, condition, length, ect.
There is a campground heading on the left side of the page which highlights the better sites. How about one that warns of "unfriendly" campgrounds? Maybe just a line or two from the offended party telling of their experience.

Just a thought, Tom.
Yeah....for just one night you could combine into one tank. Then in the morning as you pull out the tank mysteriously leaves a trail.......no I would have to be very angry to stoop that low. But you know....nah.

I think you will run into jerks wherever you go. When this thread winds down a print out should be sent to our Govenator. I am serious.

Very sad experience... we used to have great state parks... just like great national parks. But now one never sees a real "Ranger" type who actually works for the government... they are either "hosts" who are looking for a free stay themselves, or some outsourced company running the show... where are my tax dollars going???

How about starting a new thread just to list lousy experience places? We have vintage...

I'll save you the trouble

The phone # for the friends place is 831-429-1840. I would urge others to also check out their mission statement on their web site I mentioned earlier. I'm one of the few that uses the Ca. state park system at no cost due to some prior military experiences. Most of the time I manage to get my piece heard. If you pick up your blue tank and divert everything into the black tank what's the problem? Yup I'm still wound up about this crap. And this junk yard dog gets off the porch and still hunts. DG
on edit- The Ranger types never seem to have a hard time finding me,

Seacliff "Rules" and regs

I'm gratified that this thread has generated so much outrage and interest because I think it's an important topic for all vintage owners. I scanned the rules and regs thingy that they gave us that I happened to us as a bookmark in the useless camping guide after we got kicked out. Funny thing is, we never read it because the person who took our money wrote our campsite number on the back of it and we put it on our dash--as instructed. If the JPEG is not legible, and you're interested, PM me and I'll email it.

before I embarass myself on the tele tomorrow, what was the exact reason you were ousted? or would a better understanding of the systems be something every "host" should know? I'm into not telling anyone anything, yes and no answers.

I'm actually sailing over tomorrow! You'll have no problem on BC Ferries to Vancouver Island. Summers are incredibly busy, so if you can, I'd recommend phoning a few days in advance and booking a reservation. If you sail on a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday, this probably won't be necessary, but Thursdays through Sundays get crazy busy in the summer.

Here is a link to their website for more information:

If I can help you with any questions you might have, please feel free to ask!

Wow. That was just awful. I haven't been that shocked by a state park experience since I went to the ranger talk at Morro Bay State Park and the ranger showed up in a full body otter suit and loudly asked if we wanted to pet the otter fur. I kid you not.


(Thought I'd add a little levity here. So sorry you had to do the whiskey tango foxtrot experience with that pin head. Most CA state parks are pretty nice. I'll make a point to stop by that campground and say hello to the host for you...but I won't stay...I'll just leave him a nice gift.)

Hey! it said "a sealed effluient tank". you have one of those. YOur black tank. It did not say all of the tanks had to be attached. We should probably send them something four inches long and stinky.

Yikes! Too bad about the Seacliff experience. I've never seen the Moderators so worked up! We've camped in many California State Parks over the years and have found that most campground hosts are friendly and helpful. Unfortunately you found a bad egg. This guy should be reported and if he doesn't straighten up and fly right should be given the boot.
