As part of my RV lifestyle exploration, i purchased a membership to Thousand Trails, a private membership camp/RV company. Basically, for $500 a year, you can visit these sites as often as you like as long as you don’t stay too long in one site. Considering how difficult it has been in the past to secure campsites for popular sites, this option was great because 9 out of 10 time when i tried to book a site last minute, i was able to get something. It’s a first come first serve basis so you can basically move around if you don’t get a site you didn’t like the first night when other sites open up. So, in the past month, i got the chance to visit 3 of these places and for the most part, they’re nice. nothing too exciting in terms of location and i pretty used the site as base location and go out on excursions from there. I went to the russian river site a few weeks ago and it location sucked because it was like right under a freeway ad there was barely any water in the river! Still, i had a great time checking out Johnson’s Beach in Guerniville and the redwoods in Armstrong State park.
