Campground Review - Sequoia/Sunrise RV Parks

Reviewing our last two RV Parks here in California! First off is Sequoia Campground in Lemon Cove, CA.

Nearby attractions - 8 - Sequoia National Park is twenty minutes away and Visalia is 30 minutes.

Staff - 8 - Owner was very nice and helpful. Even gave us change back when dryer didn't work! also gave us tips on seeing Sequoia while they are working on the roads.

Natural surroundings - 8 - Lots of green, rock hills nearby. Plenty of shade trees and a meadow on site,

Value - 6 - We paid $37 a night for full hook-ups, pull-through site.

Bathrooms - 5 - They we're less than OK, but not entirely gross!.

Roominess - 6 - We were a bit crammed in, not much room for the van.

Facility fun - 5 - Pool which was closed and a small game room and clubhouse. Also a small playground frequented by biting red ants.

Cleanliness - 5 - Slightly less than normal for an older park.

Facility usefulness - 8 - Laundry facilities, dump station, swapping library, wifi at clubhouse, small store.

Overall - 6 - This was our Valentine's Day Destination!

Next we stayed a Sunrise RV Park in Santa Barbara. One word - expensive!

Nearby attractions - 7 - Super close to beach and zoo and downtown Santa Barbara.

Staff - 6 - Manager was nice to us, but talked bad about another camper who was having trouble pulling their RV in.
Natural surroundings - 5 - You are not in a commercial or residential area, but still not a feel of being in nature. Loved the rooster next door. Train and highway 101 close by.

Value - 2 - We paid $60 a night for full hook-ups, back-in site. Cheap for Santa Barbara though.

Bathrooms - 7 - They we're clean and had hot showers. Automatic light sensors are near ceiling so you have to wave your towel in front of them to turn them on.

Roominess - 5 - Very tight we thought, for what we paid.

Facility fun - 2 - Nothing to do on site.
Gus and Shawn were no where to be found!

Cleanliness - 7 - Average.

Facility usefulness - 7 - Super cheap laundry facilities, wifi, cable included. Picnic table at each site.

Overall - 5 - Try finding a good place with full-hook-ups in Santa Barbara that doesn't cost a bunch!
