Thousand Trails/NACO Russian River Park

On Sunday, May 25, we left Lighthouse Marina and RV Park in Isleton, California, heading west on Hwy 12. This is a two lane road with barriers in the middle. Russ did a very good job of getting through this part. We continued west on I-80 for a while and then proceeded north on Hwy 37 to Hwy 101. Most of the trip was very easy and the scenery along the way was just beautiful. I had been up this way about 15 years ago with my mom and dad but Russ had never been here so we were really enjoying what we were seeing.

We arrived at the Thousand Trails/NACO park at about 11 am. Of course they had to remind us that check in was not until 12 but.....This park does not have a lot of spaces that will accommodate our 40 footer but we did manage to get into Space 50 with no problems. They did warn us at the gate that we would have to move before Thursday as they will have tree trimmers in here to take out some trees and a lot of stumps. No problem.

After setting up we took a ride into Cloverdale, CA. just to see what is there. We stopped at the Owl Cafe for lunch and learned their history. The food was only okay. We had their fish and chips special.

After lunch we rode around for just a little longer as it was NASCAR race day on TV and I had promised Russ that we would get back in time for him to see the whole thing. He really enjoyed the race and all that went on.

All in all it was a very good day and this will be our home for the next 10 days.

Well until next time, Take Care.
