We just got back from a two night stay at Jackson Rancheria RV Park. Jackson Rancheria is a casino owned by a local tribe of Miwuk Indians. I have to admit, we’re not casino people and we didn’t venture to the casino. But the RV park is top notch and the owners should be proud of what they have created. We were greeted warmly when we arrived and I did not have to ask a single question. Christina, who checked me in, answered every question I had before I even asked! The RV spots are spacious and there is ample room between spots. We had a back in spot on the east edge of the park. The wide concrete pad was level and was surrounded by grass. We were also given a garbage bag when we checked in just in case we didn’t have any.
As I was setting up a familiar face walked into my campsite. It was my old buddy Bob! Bob and I were aviation buddies back in the day. We even owned an aircraft together for a brief time until my OCD couldn’t handle it any longer. We chatted for a bit and thin I finished setting up. After getting set up we took a walk around the park on their nature trail, after visiting with Bob and his wife some more. The trail loops around the perimeter of their park. We stopped in the office and helped ourselves to free popcorn. Then we headed back to make dinner and catch up on some movies.
The next morning after breakfast we drove down in to Jackson and walked around their downtown district. It was nice but not much was open on Monday morning. Seems the weekends are their big days. Afterwards we drove to Sutter Creek which had a larger historic district and more stores were open. We had lunch, shopped a little, then drove to Lake Tabeaud Day Use Area for a little hike. It was overcast but still kind of warm and balmy. The landscape was rich and green with all the recent rains. We drove home for more dinner and movies.
The following morning was “go-home” day. We slept in, had a late breakfast then packed up and drove home. We really enjoyed Jackson Ranceria’s RV Park and since it’s so close to home we’ll definitely be back many more times!
