SPECIAL COMMENTS and PERSONAL OBSERVATIONS OF THE TWO RV GYPSIES. Comments are only the experience of the two RV Gypsies and do not make the campground good or bad in general.


Here are a few photos that Karen took in California while traveling to Pio Pico Thousand Trails campground.

The two RV Gypsies were unlucky enough to get noisy, TRASHY, holiday party-type campers right next to them. These photos were taken by standing alongside the two RV Gypsies' RV.

This BBQ stand is on the two RV Gypsies' site, but the trashy campers had a dirty looking jacket laying on it and trash under the tree, the entire long weekend. This was taken from the dining room window of the two RV Gypsies' RV. What a lousy view.

Some roads were nicely packed gravel and some roads were dirt, campsites were dirt. This was an extremely large campground, and it was packed full since it was a holiday week-end. Even though the two RV Gypsies were members of Thousand Trails, they got in a bit late because their RV had broken down and needed some repairs. Therefore, they got put in a secondary area, which was not pleasant, and had only 30-amp electricity and water, but no sewer. And then they got trashy campers next door, as seen in the above photos. There was a $4 charge for each car visiting campers, even if they came in just for a few minutes.

There were 3 laundry rooms on site, which the two RV Gypsies did not need. Propane can be purchased here. There was a pool and an adult pool, but the two RV Gypsies did not check out either pool because they were in the wrong section, and it would have been a very long walk and crossing the main street. The same applied for the activity center and other amenities. Checkout time was noon.

AT&T did not work in this campground at all, so the two RV Gypsies did not have phone service or Wi-Fi. They had to buy Wi-Fi at the price of $10 for three days. It worked well. Only 4 crappy TV Channels came in because the campground did not have cable.

Pio Pico's check-in papers say that they have a variety of wildlife, especially coyotes, that could become aggressive if approached or threatened. However, the two RV Gypsies did not see any wildlife while at Pio Pico.
