Lots of great recommendations, and we will make a list of ALL of these. Thanks so much for the support!

I had even thought about staying home and just RVing in my driveway, have a fire out back and do nothing. But DW says, no, you won’t just do nothing, we’re leaving. LOL!

The Sierra Nevada is called the best camping area in the world, lots and lots of boondocking areas out there.


Maybe so, but not an easy place to roam and camp/RV. The area, along with Yosemite area, is constantly swamped by crowds and crowds of people. Tourism crowds and locals (Cali/AZ/UT/NV) have hemmed up most of the reservations months in advance and trying to get sites is nearly impossible. Then, there’s the Van Life crowds, some of whom live full time boondocking, or are near homeless, living in and around campgrounds and trailer parks as a source of water and sewer dumping, showers/toilets, etc, benefit. Some of these “boondockers/Van life people are not respectful of others who are traditionally “camping or RVing” making it an unpleasant experienece for those who are trying to “camp or RV.”

And then there’s the season closures, which has begun Sept 15th.

I’m just looking for a “quick fix” few nights of R&R, for DW and I, the dog. Really don't want to make an exhausting competitive task trying to fight the crowds.

Just thought someone in and around my current area might know of a “neat and quiet” spot for a few nights, that’s all.

Thanks.


No suggestions for you. Just wish to thank you for your service.



I’ve came back to check the comments, recheck the suggestions of places to go and saw your comment. I missed it the first go round. My bad.

I, wife and I both, deepy apprecaite your comments. Truly. Thank you very much!

I don't come to this site much but thought I would throw out one of my favorites. The Likely Place RV Park and Golf Resort in Likely CA. It is off of hwy 395 about 20 miles south of Alturas.
Not fancy but extremely quiet. 30/50 amp, water and sewer. No tv and last time we were there cell service was spotty, Verizon. Very dark area so star gazers love it. There are pads set up for telescopes if you like that, with power for the fancier ones. There is a small restaurant for breakfast and lunch at the clubhouse.
I was raised in that area (Tulelake)so I am biased...

We moved to Idaho in 17 so haven't been there since. Reasonable rates.

Kennedy Meadows before you get to the Sonora Pass is one of my favorite places however no fine dining anywhere close. There are several state campgrounds just before you get into the Meadows that are the most beautiful spots in the Sierras. No reservations, get there early.
