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.

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.

I prefer Bakersfield RV Resort
Bakersfield is more off the 99 if that saves any time-distance.

I like Orange Grove. I am usually coming through off of (or onto) 58 so it's very convenient for that route. But it's also a park I'd drive out of my way a few miles for.

Orange Grove RV is 30 miles from the I5 which IMHO is quite a distance if you are just looking for a place to overnight. If he was coming from Tehachapi it would be great.

Overnight to us means drive in late, do no detach, climb into trailer and sleep, wake up in the morning eat something and hit the road.

As this is Bakersfield and we hit 108 yesterday I definetly see the need for full hook ups if he is coming during the summer.

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.

I feel the same way about I-5 and there really aren't that many places to stay at distances you would like to stop.
Also agree with what sbishop said, but would make one more add.

99 will also work out along with 101 and 395.
Just depends are where you are going and how out of the way you want to go.
All of the 3 alternatives will take more time than I-5.
