RV Park Review: Mountain Valley RV Park, Tehachapi, California

This was only going to be a two-night stop-over on our way to Northern California, but we ended up blowing a bearing and spending a week here during July 4th. While we were sad and frustrated about the breakdown, this was a really great place to be stranded. Mountain Valley RV Park is located at Mountain Valley Airport in Tehachapi, California. It’s not a real airport, though: it’s for gliders! They’re the cutest and quietest planes to live near, and it was a lot of fun to watch them take off and land during the day. As an added bonus, the grassy part of the air field is filled with prairie dogs! This park does not have full hookups! Note that their “full hookup” sites on their website are not water, sewer, and electric. They have water and electric at these sites, but tanks must be dumped at their dump …

RV Park Review: Sierra Hermosa RV Park, Questa, New Mexico

Sierra Hermosa RV Park is a small, wonderful park near Carson National Forest in Questa, New Mexico, with an extremely friendly owner. In fact, when calling RV parks in the area, Bobby was so friendly that he was our deciding factor. We were looking for a small, quiet vacation spot where we could relax and recover from a very busy time in Austin, and I was going to be able to take a little time (very little) to breathe before diving back into covid-extended tax season. The park did not have many sites, and the spaces were well spread out. We were backed up against a field filled with the cutest little prairie dogs, which the cats loved to watch all day. The day we pulled in, our neighbors gifted us the most delicious fresh cherries we’ve ever had from their tree at home in Albuquerque. (These cherries were so …

RV Park Review: Hwy 71 RV Park, Cedar Creek, TX

We stayed at this Austin-area park from December 2019 until June 2020. We planned to leave at the end of April, but decided to wait to travel due to COVID-19. This was our first time visiting Austin, and we loved it. We found a couple great safe places to eat (see our reviews of Zucchini Kill and Always Hungry), the best co-op grocery store ever (the unfortunately named Wheatsville), the Dinosaur Park. Sadly, we never got to check out the Congress Avenue Bridge bats due to the pandemic and avoiding crowds, but there’s always next time. Hwy 71 RV Park is located on the east side of Austin in the town of Cedar Creek. The nearest town with grocery stores and services (including a Buc-ee’s!) is Bastrop. There’s also Bastrop Mobile Home and RV Parts, which just opened this year and David used frequently for working on clients’ RVs in …

RV Park Review: Eastbank, Lake Seminole, GA

This one is brought to you by the “looks can be deceiving” department. We stayed at the Eastbank campground, maintained by the Army Corps of Engineers, in August 2019. We made reservations for three nights, but ended up leaving after one. On the way up, there were some steep grades, and a lot of trees that were still recovering from last year’s Hurricane Michael. When we checked in, we were warned about sugar ants, and encouraged to spread poison around our site, as well as to wrap our electrical cord around the pole, to keep it off the ground and deter ants from finding an easy way into our home. When we found our site, we were stunned by the beauty of it all. The lake was like glass, the grass and trees so green, and the sky looked endless. Parking was a little daunting, as they’re back-in sites, and …

RV Park Review: Al Sihah Shriners’ RV Park, Macon, GA

Our first hurricane warning as RVers!

a large grassy field with a row of trees on the left and an couple RVs spread out under the trees. A gravel road winds off into the distance.

We entered Florida shortly before the warnings for Hurricane Dorian, and decided to turn north to wait it out until we knew what Dorian would be doing. (Our hearts break for the Bahamas, who will be recovering from this for a long time.)

About the Park

We spent a year (2018-2019) at Destiny RV Resort in Goodyear, Arizona. This was our first experience spending any significant time at an RV park with all its nice amenities and features.

Overall, this was a great park, and we feel like subsequent parks, even the great ones, have been a bit of a let-down because of our good experiences here. Destiny had just about everything we wanted in a park, so now we’ve got some high standards to live up to when visiting other parks!
