Below 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 is why Karen does not like people to call her RV a camper. Plus the RV is their only home).

The BBQ stand shown below was 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 is 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 had to have some repairs. Therefore, the two RV Gypsies got put in a secondary area, which was not pleasant, and had only 30-amp and water, no sewer. And then they got trashy campers next door to them, as seen in the above photos.

There was a $4 charge for each car visiting campers, even if they come in just for a few minutes. There were 3 laundry rooms on site, which the two RV Gypsies do 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 such a long walk and probably crowded since the campground was full. The same applies 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 checking 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.
