I want to come but DH read something about high winds and blowing sand in the area and is concerned about the paint on our new-to-us Compact II. Can someone who has camped there confirm the safety (sanctity really ) of his new paint?

I haven't ever camped there but if wind and sand are going to keep you home it really limits where you can go, in fact I can't think of a place you can go. So Cal is beach and desert and there is usually wind.

Hubby says there are 50-60 mph winds every time you tow and if you are leaving the LA area you are going to hit open desert pretty quick.

So I hope you come!

LOL how high is too high of winds???

Having camped there I can tell you that the campground is surrounded by hills on three sides - the only side exposed to the open desert (actually the campground is a bit uphill from the desert floor) is the East. So if the winds are coming from the North, South or West you should be pretty protected from the full force of them. But dont hold me to that!

If you are worried about wind you should just put a cover on your Compact and put it in your garage. What would you do if there were no winds when you got there and then the wind came up? You shouldnt limit your camping to what the weather COULD be! Mother Nature isnt concerned with us, she has worse issues to deal with.

OK I was concerned because posters on another forum reported 65mph winds every night they were there. Not sounding like much fun at the campfire. That's why I asked for information from some of you who have stayed there
Sorry I pushed somebody's hot button. I certainly did not expect the negativism I got. I was asking a reasonable question, I thought
We might be a little gunshy having been in one of those sand storms that required repainting our truck and replacing the windshield
Sheesh
Obviously we got the camper to camp. And we were really looking forward to taking it to a Fiberglass Event i am not so sure now I sure didn't expect the reactions I got from some of you

Hi Denice

I'm Carol and my husband is Jim. We've been to many rallies with these folks and I'm positive no one meant to push any buttons. Things do come over in writing sometimes reading a little different than if you heard them say it.

We have been in charge of the Lake Casitas rally and celebrated our 10th year of putting it on . Most of these folks have gone to the rally almost every year. You will soon have a whole group of new friends.

But please do come to this rally... It's a fun group.. everyone is very friendly.. and you will be welcomed with open arms ..

Rosemary has worked hard to get this together and Liz her friend, has been working with her too. We don't want you to miss out on a fun activity ...

Jim and I will be in site 7 and we have the "famous" cat Jerry that most people have met. We say "famous" because we are the ones that always bring a cat - and he is friends with most everyone.

We will be watching for you in April and if you want to chat with me on email, just click on my name on the left and send a personal message or an email. I will be happy to answer any questions that you might have ..

Hope we see that you post here and will be joining us. (Don't let a little wind stop you -- our trailer is 10 years old and it still is great.. it's been through many wind storms too).

Carol and Jim (and Jerry)

Denese, I don't think anyone meant to hurt your feelings. We were saying weather is unpredictable so get out there and camp, don't let the possibility keep you home.

If the weather was so bad at the campground people wouldn't be camping there at all and I know many people who have gone and reported it was nice. According to the online reservations the campground is almost full every weekends. That doesn't mean there are never high winds there, it is the desert after all. We always try to check the weather reports before we go somewhere... but they aren't always right.

I would love to be able to go back there but I am in BC and I just got back from a Arizona/S. Cal on December 23rd in time for ski season here - I also have a couple of big ski races I have to work in April (I'm a volly official with Alpine Canada) will be heading down to the NOG meet at Nehalem, Oregon later in April though. You should come to that! Its another really nice place to camp my fav on the Oregon coast.
