RV Paradise

by Jean Henry Mead 
 
 
After years of staying in crowded, graveled RV parks, we discovered a resort that is very close to paradise. Rancho California is located in the southern desert 18 miles east of Temecula in wine country, an oasis guaranteed to fill most RVer's vacation dreams. 
 
 
The 503-lot resort has a number of waterfalls, ponds, multitude of palm trees, swimming pools, tennis and pickleball courts, grocery mart, restaurant, chapel, laundromats and bath houses, fenced dog park, coastal mountain views as well as a golf course which meanders through the gated facility. It's a community unto itself.
 
 
 
 
The view of one of the waterfalls was taken from our 40 x 80 lot, which features an outdoor galley kitchen, 25 palm trees and a rose garden that most flower enthusiasts would die for. The large club house behind the waterfall regularly hosts plays, dances to live music, church services, club meetings and a variety of activities available to both renters and lot owners.

 

 
A view of the golf course with the coastal range in the background. Visitors regularly travel from Germany, the UK and other countries to stay here as well as RVers from every state in the union. And, surprisingly, it's relatively inexpensive.
 
 
 
Sunset viewed from the back of our lot, while seated with a glass of California wine to relax from the day's activities. The only drawback is that I don't take time to work on another Logan and Cafferty mystery because there are so many activities, new friends to visit with, and great views to gaze upon. It's truly an RVers paradise!

Sounds and looks terrific, Jean. I'm not an RVer but such a place could easily make me become one.

I'm certain you'd love it here, Bill.

Marja, you don't have to own an RV to vacation here. There are quite a few rentals available as well as golf carts, which everyone travels around the resort in, whether or not they play golf.
