Not every day is a day in paradise.....

Since we couldn't find a public campground with openings over the holiday weekend, and we needed to do laundry plus a few other chores, we decided to stay in the KOA at San Luis Obispo. I thought I had completed a reservation, but when I arrived they had no record of the reservation (probably my fault). They found a spot for us even though the sign at the camp ground entrance said "Campground Full". The units are packed together tighter than I have ever seen. The campground is undergoing renovation, and the washers and dryers are currently sitting outside the laundromat which is getting a new floor. The showers are a "work in progress". But on the bright side we did find a laundromat down the road, and I got several trailer chores done, including installing a new carrier for the sewer hose (the hinge on the end cap broke), make some adjustments to the towing mirrors, and tighten/replace a few screws. We are on to Montana de Oro State Park (thanks Ross!). So the back window views will improve.

When you're on the road for awhile, these kinds of days roll off your back.

Similar to staying in a motel, except BETTER because you get to sleep in your own bed, head on your own pillow and eating food that you like and fix. I think it's just fine!

You'll get that on your bigger jobs. Lakeside spots in the Michigan State Parks on Lake Michigan aren't much different. Away from the lake, much better.

Sorry did encounter that situation somewhere in Oregon at State Campground on coast , left and found better down the road . They kept 14.00 . I was not referring to Leon who doesn't live anywhere near here . I was referring to all the campers who are happy to put up with this experience . Guess that is just me but I can't deal with being packed like a sardine and pay for that experience to boot . Again no disrespect to Leon . I have also been in situations I am not familiar with and just deal because I am scared there is nothing else at the moment .Just remembered left another on the way up and ended up at Camping World for the night . I do live here on this coast , traveled it many times and am not afraid to go on . Pat

It depends why you are where you are at.
This crowded campground is within walking distance, along a scenic path, of downtown Victoria, with the option of a water-taxi.
Been there, done that.
