California is a big State....this is only a small sampling. Newport Dunes in Newport Beach is rated high but at $200+/night...it's overrated...!!! We have visited all of the listed parks and recommend them to anyone. Easy access and full hookups...these are the 10+ rated parks in our book....Dennis
To add to some of the suggestions from Dennis, as you work your way up the coast (suggest that as opposed to bombing up the valley via 5), try the Flags Park North of Santa Barbara, and in Paso Robles, hit Wine Country RV. Both are nice parks, but it is Location, Location, Location to the wineries that make these other two nice spots to visit...
(Dennis, I've linked a few of your spots to my saved sites - a few new ones to me!)
The Chula Vista RV Resort / Marina located on San Diego Bay. Couple restaurants on-site, nice pool, trolley close by. Pismo Coast Village RV Resort, very nice.
We stayed at Pismo and agree with comment (as long as not during spring break). We stayed at a park near Chula Vista RV Park two weeks ago and drove through it. You would like that one. And there is sooo much to see in San Diego area.
San Francisco RV Resort in Pacifica, Ca. On a Cliff over looking the Pacific. I have seen whales off the coast here too. Not far from the city of SF too. Very fair price for the location, and easy access for big rigs. Agree on the Flying Flags Resort in Buellton, Ca. Try some Pea soup at Pea soup Andersons.
