We finally broke down and purchased generators for our Airstream. Even though we have a solar panel on the roof that usually keeps our batteries topped off, we sometimes need a little more power for some situations when boondocking/dry camping. We don’t like the sound of generators in campgrounds, but there are times when generator power is necessary, like it or not.
Camp Comfort is a Ventura County park located in Ojai, California. It’s really small, 15 campsites, but it’s well maintained and in a great location to explore local attractions. There are plenty of recreational activities in the area, but Ojai is predominantly…
Crystal Cove, get it? Gem of a state park? Thanks folks I’m here all week.
The campground is Moro Campground in Crystal Cove State Park near Laguna, California. It sits high above beach level, which is just across highway 1, and sports spectacular ocean views. It’s very hard to book a spot here as it is a very popular campground. There are sites with water and electric (no sewer) and there are sites without any hookups at all. There is a dump station.
The San Mateo campground is next to Camp Pendleton Marine base in San Clemente, California, and is part of San Onofre State Beach. It’s an attractive campground with lots of room between sites. There is a scenic 1.5 mile nature trail that connects the campground to Trestles Beach. A creek, San Mateo Creek, is just east of the campground and goes all the way to the ocean. It has created a wetland habitat for lots of critters, some of which are rare and/or endangered.
This is a long one that covers 2 weeks and 4 campgrounds. I tried to sum it all up as concisely as possible, but I do ramble sometimes and it’s hard to choose just a few pictures from a large collection. This post might be a good one if you are having trouble sleeping.
In July 2015 we took two weeks off and towed our Airstream up to Moss Landing, which is a little north of Monterey, California. We only towed between 200 – 300 (at most) miles a day so we made overnight stops both to and from. It’s a beautiful drive with lots to see and do.
