Family RV Camping

Camping is a great family activity for all ages.

We took a two-week trip to the Redwoods. We left Friday after work and drove till we were tired and made it to the rest stop before Sparks Nevada. We pulled in, leveled the fifth wheel and then I put down the stabilizer jacks and left the fifth wheel hooked up. I turned on the generator and then the AC. We had a snack and then went to bed. I woke up at 3 am and the AC was off and so turned off the generator. We woke up, showered and had a nice hot breakfast. Pulled in the slides, raised the jacks and we were off. Didn’t have to find a hotel, drag in luggage, go down and eat hotel breakfast and pack up the room.

We then drove to Mystic Forest RV Park. We stayed there five days. We ate breakfast and dinner at the trailer and had campfires each night or played games. For lunch each day we made a picnic and ate somewhere cool for lunch. .

We went to Jedediah Smith Redwood State Park and saw where Star Wars was filmed and hiked and had a picnic in the forest. We spent a day at Ocean World and ate lunch at the beach. We spent another day at the Trees of Mystery and had a picnic there. What a fun place. We spent another day on a jet boat ride on the Klamath River and the went and had a picnic at High Bluff Overlook Picnic Area then on to Fern Canyon. .

We then moved down the coast to Ancient Redwoods RV Park. The owner of the RV Park told a about this loop road trip that was a must see. We took a day trip and drove south from the RV Park to Mottole Road then followed it west to the beach then to town of Ferndale. It was a beautiful drive. We spend a day exploring the town around the area and drove the Avenue of the Giants. .

We then moved down to Manchester Beach KOA. We could hear the waves all night. By now we were tired so we just chilled, walked out to the beach and swam. .

We then continued down the coast to Jenner and then followed the Russian River to highway 101 and then south to Marin RV Park just north of Golden Gate Bridges. I is close to the bus route. The manager at the RV Park said you have to go into the city for the fourth. We walked over and took the bus into San Francisco for the fourth of July. We ended up at Fisherman’s Warf and they had a bunch of different bands playing. We did east at a street vendor for lunch and dinner. First meals we ate out the whole trip. The fireworks that night was incredible, five different places you could see at once. The bus ride back was crazy with millions of people leaving. The next day we went back and walked around town and road the street cars. Another day we drove to the Japanese Tea Garden and then went to U.S.S. Hornet.   We then drove home.
