Camp Pendleton-Del Mar RV Resort Nov 2017

Our church has an adults-only RV Group (fur-babies allowed) that goes camping about 4 times a year and this was our first time joining them.

San Elijo State Beach – July/August 2017

We were able to get this reservation at San Elijo SB very last minute but it wasn’t an ocean view site. In our section there were actually 4 rows (some parts of the loops have just 2 or 3 rows) and we were in the 2nd row from the ocean. The trains were REALLY loud without…

South Carlsbad State Beach – April 2017

WE LOVE THIS PLACE! This was actually our 2nd visit to South Carlsbad SB. It’s a very popular campground and books many months in advance, but you can sometimes get in last minute on a cancellation, as we did on our first visit in January when we booked it the day before! If you’re within…
