We will be traveling from No. CA to Southern CA via I-5 and were wondering if anyone knows a decent RV Park/Campground with full hook ups we can stay overnight going down then again coming back. I would like to find something near or as close to I-5 since this is our route. Has anyone done this trip and if so, what are you thoughts or is there another location near Bakersfield that would be a good overnight stop? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
On the Los Angeles side bottom of the hill of the Cajone pass is Lake Piru...especially if you fish! HERE!

Orange Grove RV Park is just a few miles off I-5 in Bakersfield, but it's a very nice park set in an Orange grove. A really relaxing place after driving the crazy 5. We enjoyed it and it's a very popular overnight spot for those "in the know"....
If you're interested I've got pics of the place HERE
Buena Vista Lake a Kern County Campground. Located off I5/Hwy 119 Taft Hwy. Easy on and off the Hwy. Fill up at the TA Travel Center in Buttonwillow the cheapest gas off the I5. They price gouge the closer you get to Bakersfield.
They have 30 and 50 amp. Fills up on weekends due to the lake. Gates are open until 10pm for check in.

First off, I love CA and find the central valley area interesting but I gave up on I-5 from the Grapevine to Woodland. It is under construction or needs to be all that way. I decided two years ago I would spend a few extra hours and drive in comfort on either 101 or 395. We have been driving from SoCal to Washington and Oregon regularly since 1967 and it's okey in a car with soft suspention but in a MoHo pulling a towed means you have to spend most of your time in the #2 lane with the trucks. Trucks and truckers are no problem to drive with, they have just broken up the road so badly it's horrible on your suspention and in my case water system. There are lots and lots of places to camp on 395 and quite a few on 101 and neither one gets really hot. Just my experiences not everyones feelings.
