This stop in Santa Rosa will just be for overnight. We often use rvparkreviews.com when we are trying to decide where to stay to look at the ratings from people who have stayed previously. This has worked out very well and we really haven't had any surprises and been fairly pleased with the selections we have made. Well..........this state park got high reviews, just had to be careful your site had both water and electric. When we arrived, there is no one to check in with, just a sign to go to your site or if you don't have a reservation, pick a site that doesn't have a "reserved' sign on it. Ok, no problem, except I had not written down our site number and I couldn't find any email confirming our reservation. Finally, I called the phone number on the park website and got our site number. Well, not sure who rated this park but it was just more desert and the lake was not very close, although, you could see it from the campground. We did have water and electric at our site, but, they were on the opposite side of our trailer hookups. Oh well, it was only for one night and we didn't even unhook the truck....ready to make our getaway in the morning.

Pulled out the next morning, headed for Texas. Those trains are running, sometimes two at a time, side by side, with one waiting in the distance. We saw a lot of containers from China!

And the wheels on the train go round and round...............

The good news on that is you are ready to get out of there quickly ! Once in a while you run in to a site where the hookups must have been laid out by someone who never has been in an RV. We ran in to that in Williamsburg ..

Yes, Rick, we were out of there bright and early. Certainly nothing to keep us there.
