Sugar Barge RV Resort, Bethel Island, CA

I knew that Sugar Barge was a popular spot for RV rallies, always filling up, so I thought I would try it. Monthly fees are the most economical so I paid for one month –$800, includes everything. After 21 days, you are saving money even if you leave prior to one month being up. WeContinue reading “Sugar Barge RV Resort, Bethel Island, CA”

San Benito Thousand Trails, Paicines, CA

This Thousand Trails has a lot of positive things going for it if you love nature and have dogs. However, I would use the word “resort” loosely as the infrastructure is very dated. Just like most of the Thousand Trail resorts that I’ve been to, very little, if any, money is put back in toContinue reading “San Benito Thousand Trails, Paicines, CA”

Cajun Palms RV Resort, Breaux Bridge, LA

There are wonderful amenities for the kids–pool with fun fountains, video arcade, miniature golf, playground– but I get the distinct impression it’s the grownups who want to come and play.   Adult entertainment includes a swim up bar, adults only jacuzzi,Continue reading “Cajun Palms RV Resort, Breaux Bridge, LA”

Stella Mare is a new resort and they are very social media forward with a nice website and continuous promotions.
