OK, I can show you where I have been "living" for almost 2 weeks (With a week more to go) for my work project.
This is a converted county campground in a wetlands preserve in Yorba Linda, Ca. (Home of a Richard Nixon) As mentioned before, the "new" owners have preserved the campground feel and updated all the sites with full hook ups, leveled the pads, added gravel and cleaned it up from what country campgrounds usually turn into.
At 45 a nite, it's spendy, and is full of gi-hugey motorhomes, but they allow just about anything that isn't falling apart or a rolling meth lab. (I stayed here for a week, in this very spot, in my Coleman Colorado pop up in January once) They keep the ground clean and primped, with clean bathrooms and showers, yet retain the rusticness of a campground.
My spot is about 10 feet from the Santa Ana river, and it is 4 miles or so BEFORE they turn it into typical LA cement channels.
The big dam that almost broke last year is up river 7 miles or so, and this place was evacced to prevent everyone from floating away in thier 5th wheels.
I am enjoying my day off, and I must admit, as self contained as I am, it's great to have all the hook ups to make life a bit easier. And I don't have to give up the "nature" part of it to get them.
I never get to SEE this view during the week, I leave and come "home" in the dark.
