Camping near Mendocino this week and someone suggested "glass beach" near ft. Bragg to visit. Has a very interesting story with washed up glass all over the beach. Not sure where to stay around here but I am sure there are plenty of spots to park the rig and stay for the night. Sounds like a great place to visit for the day.

for the OP, going there will be way out of their way.

but it is a cool place. it's interesting to know that garbage can be come beautiful, if enough time passes.

Pomo RV park is close and very well reviewed.
Caspar Beach RV park is a little more south but right across from a cove.
we stay at Hendy Woods SP, when we're in the area.

This is the only way into Death Valley from highway 395, and the one you can see a lot of the valley without doing a lot of extra driving. The road is good all the way, I have driven it many times, pulling a travel trailer, fifth wheel, and driving a motorhome.(Not all at once, LOL).

Gas up in Minden just south of Carson City, there is an Arco (not sure if they have diesel) with the best price. You can fill up again in Bishop, the Indian Casino on the right as you enter town has the best price. If you need gas it is available in Death Valley, but is very expensive.

Gas is available in Parumph, and of course in Vegas.

Happy Trails, Forrest

kdcamper, great route. Descending Tioga Pass to 395 is very steep, but shouldn't be a problem. Go down in your lowest gear, and don't let your brakes overheat. I have done it many times with trailers, fifth wheels and motorhomes. Just watch your speed!

When you get to 395, turn south and you will pick up the route I gave you before. There is a campground just before you start down the pass (Tuolumne Meadows, listed under Lee Vining in campground directory), if you can get in it is beautiful. (209) 372-0200. It states a 22' max RV length, but I have found that is not always enforced.

Happy Trails, Forrest

I wish I had known about Sam's Town for Vegas! That's where my Dad usually went when he lived in North Vegas. Circus Circus is a dump, the KOA is nice, but it's a parking lot and difficult to get to the strip from.
SF RV resort is nice since you are right on the coastline, but you are packed in like sardines. You can take a taxi from there into Fisherman's Wharf, or park on the street like we did! (we got VERY lucky finding two meters together only one block from the wharf) I'd do Candlestick if it's available, but the full hookup sites are nice in the morning... Make reservations now... It's usually full.

If you to the city of San Fran, definitely go to Pier 39. Lots of fun things to do and great food! But you would have to drive in to the city without the rv.

We took our 31' class C all around downtown SF, and were able to park on the street one block from the wharf.
