We became 1000 Trail Members in April, 2010 for the western states campgrounds of which included California, Oregon, Washington, Arizona and Colorado. We paid a membership fee in April which entitles us to 14 free days maximum at one of their parks. This was our first one. This park put us 53 miles outside of Los Angeles where Jason chose to look for a job. We drove him there the first day and he managed to get back to Acton by Metrolink train. Thus we purchased a multi-purpose pass for him so he could do the employment thing each day we were there. Our sole purpose of getting anywhere near Los Angeles. After we dropped him off we drove through Hollywood, Santa Monica, Pasadena and Beverly Hills. That was enough for us. We were going to keep close to camp while Jason did his thing. The campground wasn't bad, but all the sites weren't in good working order. Some nice sites had no power or leaky water hook-up. I found a good site but a broken picnic table. I repaired it along with two other tables. I also trimmed the trees and cleaned up the site which it had a great view. This RV Park lacks a good maintenance supervisor for the size of it. But the park offers plenty of things to do. The Hot-Tub was great as well as the Halloween Pot-Luck Dinner. Plus the fact Darlene Won too many times at Bingo Night. All in good Fun!! Met some good people who are also full-time RVers as well. Who filled us in on the campground as well as the area. All of them were very helpful!! Me and my Bud took an drive up to Mount Wilson over looking LA. to view the charred remains of Angeles National Forest. What a shame. We participated in the campground's annual craft and rummage sale with an booth for our business with Send Out Cards. Cleaned up our camper and did some preventive maintenance here before heading out to discover the area northwest of LA.
