The Ranch at Elizabeth Lake, CA (Oct 15 - 18th) 2010
Since we are Camp USA members, we receive 50% off the camping fees of their campgrounds so we decided to try this one. There was a full 18 hole golf course, a swimming pool, a whirlpool, laundry facilities, a game room, mini putting greens and tennis and basketball courts. We had full hook-ups and cable TV which has been a rarity through our camping adventures. The only thing it was lacking was TREES. It was located about 19 miles from Lancaster and Palmdale, California. Riding through the canyons to get there, we noticed quite a bit of fire damage on the hills. A large fire had blackened quite a distance alongside the hillsides this past summer. Had a lot of people worried about their homes. While it was a nice campground, I don't think it was worth the full price of $45 per night. Another campground we'll pass on next time.We had to keep tabs on Buddy because they said there were coyotes out in the hills. We made a visit to Camper's World for returns, supplies and while we were at this campground we did enjoyed the cable TV in the evenings due to the cooler weather. We were just biding our time there so that the next 14 days at our 1000 Trails Campground in Acton, Ca. would take us through Halloween.
