John, several people suggested Whales Head Beach RV and it does seem interesting. I'll be sure to check into Harris Beach SP before I finalize. Offhand do you know if they have any size restrictions. I gave up looking at the CA SP's because so many of them could not accomodate a 34', and the one's that could would have made a travel day either too short or too long.

[QUOTE=Stream 1529]I'm in the process of fine tuning the northern CA leg of my trip, and will then begin work on the return leg.

First an update. As much as I really wanted to stay in Malibu, I just couldn't get past the daily fees, and surcharges if you were to stay during the July 4th period. Astronomical comes to mind. So, my CA stops will begin at the Pomona KOA out next to the LA fairgrounds. I will be there from 6/27 - 6/29, and would provide a cold beer and warm greeting to anyone wishing to come over. From there we travel to Morro Bay, and will stay at Morro Dunes Rv Park from 6/30 - 7/6. I did the reserve america thing on 1/2 to get a spot at the state park to no avail - I didn't realize that I could have called the month earlier because of my June arrival. From Morro Bay we will begin our first of two legs on the PCH up to Marina, CA. We'll leave Marina, and the PCH, and travel to Petaluma, CA. From Petaluma we then will get back to the PCH at Benbow.

Have not stayed at the Pomona KOA, East Shore RV park is in the same area and has nice sites with grass overlooking a lake. Morro Dunes Rv park is mostly fulltimers, very small dirt spots. If you stay in Pismo Beach this Pismo Coast Village RV Resort is very nice.

We have friends in Morro Bay so we'll be staying there. The folks at Morro Dunes took my reservation through 7/2 and put me on a waiting list. They were good enough to call me when they had a cancellation. Our friends have said that the people at Morro Dunes are heavy in community functions and fund raisers.

As I'll probably be faced with small spots, some are dirt and gravel, until I get north - and maybe west as well - I won't mind the neighbors. I did check out Pismo Beach, and it does seem nice, but we've heard too much about Morro Bay to not stay on this trip.

Do remember that wonderful state beaches that usually book up 6 months in advance, can be yours for the camping if you show up early that day (usually after 9am) and ask if there are any open spots. You can't book online or by the phone the same day, you must be at the front office to do this. EVERY time Rome and I have tried this it has worked. I have been astounded at the terrific sites and times of year we have managed to secure water/beach front sites. You may have to change sites every few days (if you are staying for a week or so) but it is well worth the trouble to hear the sounds of the occean as you fall asleep w/o reservations!

I have seen "big rigs" at Harris Beach in the 38' to 40' range. The back in site we were in could easily have taken your trailer. We called two days ahead for a reservation in early June of last year.

That's something to look into. Thanks John. I always enjoy staying in State and National parks when I can. I've got my national parks pass in the Excursion as we speak. I'll be putting it to use beginning next week on a trip to Big Bend.

That is something to remember. When I'm on a clock I get nervous and need to know where I'm going to be staying. My clock is off, but my wife's is still on. She needs to be home in time for the Fall semester to begin. Next year we will be meandering a bit, and can put it to use then when we go east. Thanks for the great tip.
