Yeah we just got back from a three week tour this summer of the pacific northwest (before the fires) from AZ in our highlander which is what prompted the need for a travel trailer. We are planning on renting or borrowing a truck to pull our travel trailer so distance is a factor but we love visiting CA and have family and friends all over. I love sequoia we ere just outside of there in visalia in the spring after visiting Santa Barbara and it's so sad to see the effects of the drought.
I was looking at our options as my husband wants to go to San diego as it's closer. but the only options are commercial rv parks and one beach option which is San Onofore which is right next to a nuclear generating station which isn't looking good to me. Is pismo coast rv park the one you're talking about? I've heard good things about that one and flying flags rv park. There's two options Pismo coast and Pismo sands. On yelp the coast one is higher rated so I'd love to hear your opinions or experience there if you have the time. For November that wouldn't be too much of a drive as we'll probably stop in Palm desert for a day to break it up. We didn't do that this spring and decided to drive overnight with a toddler to our vacation rental and it was a huge mistake.
I think I'll have to plan for next year to get in line fo rht Central Coast as it is the most beautiful area to visit and stay for awhile to many people, myself included. I was very fortunate to live there for college and it's something I plan to go back to with my kids!
The other campgrounds you recommended I've never heard of and am excited to see what they are like! Thanks for all the information it's much needed for a newbie like myself!

I've never been so I think that would be something to do! But yes you're right I don't need much more sand and dirt or desert!
We would be coming from tucson I do this annual bike ride there so was looking for options that would good south but I'm a big fan of the new options we have around us. But I love the central coast, my hubby does too but wants to stay around san diego but we're always open to ideas and suggestions!

Casino campgrounds are also a good overnighter. We have stayed in many on our cross country trips. There are some you can park overnight in their parking lot for free. We have done this a few time when en route.

DD had a lacrosse tournament in the San Diego area in June and we stayed at Chula Vista RV Resort. We had a Bay view site. It was a bit pricey but was a nice clean park looking into the city park and the bay. You can walk to the right into the park through a security gate. No real beach in that area but not a far drive from Coronado Island and nice beaches. Also very close to Imperial Beach which is a smaller Beach but clean. Just finding a parking spot can be an issue.

Hope this helps.

X2 for the SLO County Parks. We like to stay at El Chorro Regional Park on Hwy 1 halfway between SLO and Morro Bay. Unfortunately almost all of the hookup sites are already reserved. If you don't mind staying in the primitive sites, there are still plenty of sites left for the Thanksgiving week. SLO is about 5 miles South and Morro Bay about 5 miles North.

May want to check out what truck your going to tow with. Not as easy as renting a truck and hitching up. Truck has to be set up to tow, proper hitch at correct height, brake controller installed etc. Perhaps a WD hitch will be needed. Limits of truck to tow and to haul what you want to haul.

Would think that would be item one to get in line, then, if you can two what you want with the vehicle available, then find a place to stay. JMHO

In San Diego, Campland on the Bay is one of our favorites, the are located on Mission Bay accross from Seaworld, they have their own beach and marina in the bay too. They are only a couple of miles away from the Boardwalk at Mission Beach. They're private so they cost a bit more, but last time I was there they were a decent, clean, gated and have 24 hr security.
