RV Resort, Las Cruces , NM
740 Stern Drive
Las Cruces, NM 99005
We had planned to stay just the night at Hacienda, but ended up spending three weeks there! The park is located in beautiful
high desert country in one of the nicest, cleanest cities in the US. The scenery is wonderful and this is one well-maintained
park. Each site is well groomed and perfect. There is a nice motel style
buffet offered in the clubhouse each morning, a complimentary daily newspaper and even a hosted Margarita social on Friday evenings. The staff is always helpful,
friendly and a joy to interact with. Cable TV, instant telephone service and
pay WiFi are available.
We highly recommend Hacienda RV Resort if you are in the Las Cruces area.
Chula Vista RV Resort, Chula
Vista (San Diego), CA
Chula Vista, CA 91910
Located just a few miles south of the city of San Diego, Chula
Vista RV Resort is a beautiful destination” RV park that will
appeal to both full-time and recreational RV’ers alike.
The park offers 237 spaces on beautifully landscaped and
very well maintained grounds.
It seems like someone is always going around tending the
landscaping and sweeping the streets.
One thing that we enjoyed was the location of
the park which is adjacent to a large 557 slip marina facility.
Where there are marinas, there are usually restaurants and this
marina is no exception, having several excellent restaurants within
easy walking distance of the park.
Park amenities include a sparkling clean
heated pool, spa, exercise rooms, meeting rooms, laundry
facilities and clean restrooms.
Cable TV and pay WiFi is available. Once a week there is a
“Happy Hour” complete with entertainment where they serve low
cost beer and wine.
The park offers a variety of long paved
pull-through and back-in spaces and rates will vary according to
whether or not you choose a view site, interior space, back-in
space, end space, etc. The park website has a park map that should
make choosing the type of space a snap. To the best of our knowledge,
the park will not guarantee a specific space, but will do their
best to locate you in the category of space that you want based on
If there is one area where we would fault
this park it’s the dog facilities. They are completely
inadequate for the size of park.
The dog-walks are small fenced in areas filled with sand.
Park guests are very good at keeping these areas clean and picked
up, but there is still an offensive odor in the area of the dog
walks. We avoided them at all cost instead preferring to take our
little pooch outside of the park to do his business.
On the subject of pets, there is a $1.00 per day charge
for each pet and they do have a weight restriction of 20 pounds
per dog. From what
we’ve seen though, they’ve either abandoned the weight
restriction or they look the other way, because we’ve seen many
very large dogs in the park.
Mountain Valley Airport RV
Park, Tehachapi, CA
Tehachapi, CA 93581
(661) 822-1213 (Daily between 7 am and 4
We absolutely love the RV park at Tehachapi's Mountain Valley Airport. In fact, it just might be our all time favorite park.
This park is a no-frills operation with no fancy clubhouse, no swimming pool or spa and no social event's calendar. What it
does offer is spectacular scenery and the ability to relax in total peace and quiet. There is the occasional sound of a tow plane taking off with a sailplane in tow or maybe the whoosh of a sailplane passing by as it lands on the nearby runway, but
this place offers solitude for those that crave it.
As I said, this is a no frills operation, but it does have basic hookups and excellent pay WiFi. The sites are basic too with
most being pull-thrus. All have a picnic table and trees nearby. We always pick a space at the edge of the runway so that we
can watch the gliders take off and land, but since the entire RV park sits next to the runways, there is always excellent viewing available from just about anywhere. Airport operations stop at night so there is no noise to spoil a good nights
The airport offers a 5% discount on glider rides to RV park guests, which is a great incentive to take a first flight. If
you've never been up in a sailplane, we think you'll love it. It's
flying's version of sailing and there are few things more wonderful than soaring quietly with the birds.
The park is located a few miles off of highway 58 in Tehachapi, but the drive out to the park is an easy one and well worth
the few minutes it takes to get there. If you love airplanes and gliders in particular, you'll love the Mountain Valley
Airport RV Park.

Bourquin's RV Park, Colby,
155 East Willow, I-70 Frontage
Road (North Side)
Colby, KS 67701
We found this
nice little west Kansas RV park almost by accident.
We were looking for a place to spend the night while making
a trip across Kansas on I-70, but pickings are a little slim out
that way. Fortunately our Trailer Life Directory came to the
rescue. It listed the
Bourquin’s Park in Colby, Kansas, which was about where we
wanted to stop for the night. What really caught our eye were the
words “Wash Your RV!” printed at the bottom of their display
ad. While most RV
parks frown on vehicle washing, this park actually offers it for
free. We took full
advantage of their offer by washing not only the motor home but
our towed vehicle. What a treat it was to be able to wash our
coach at our leisure using a hose and bucket.
The park has
level grass spaces with 50 amp hookups, showers, laundry
facilities, WiFi, cable TV, cabins and even horse stables for
those traveling with large four legged companions. There is a Wal-Mart
Super Center located right across the street, which makes for a
convenient place to stock up on provisions.
Dan & Shirley Bourquin also operate a nice restaurant on the
park grounds. The
“Old Depot Restaurant” offers dinner as well as a Saturday
brunch and daily lunch service.
We enjoyed our meal in the old Union Pacific Railroad depot,
which was moved from downtown Colby back in 1981.
If you happen
to be passing through this part of the country, we recommend
Bourquin’s RV Park.
