Thousand Trails Russian River- Day 1 & 2

Thousand Trails Russian River in California


It was hot when we arrived at the Thousand Trails Russian River so Kevin and I walked to the river. I saw a big fin in the water. I thought it was a big fish so I  jokingly asked Kevin to bring the fishing poles. Then the creäture put its head up.

It was an otter. It was so cute.


We found a campsite with good directv satellite and at&t cell phone service. Its a small campground with friendly staff & nice campers. Were on a retirement budget so thousand trails is perfect for us.

Friendly campers & things to do in the area and all within our budget

It can’t get any better than that.

Day 1: exploring Santa Rosa

I woke up early Saturday morning eager to explore Santa Rosa. We drove to the local farmers market in Santa Rosa. This is a good size farmers market filled with a variety of goods. The vendors were friendly and helpful.

Next, we drove to the Historic Railroad Square. The A’Roma Roasters Coffee & Tea shop had a good light roast coffee. The wifi in the shop was okay.


Charles M. Schultz lived in Santa Rosa for the last 30 years of his life. There are several peanuts statues in Santa Rosa. This snoopy statue is in the Historic Railroad Square. Nick at The Gypsy Journal described the Charles M. Schultz Museum if your interested in museum.

Day 2 – Sunday Football/BBQ

    • I like it. We started out with a zone pass from our RV dealer then bought a elite membership. It saves us alot of money. If you use it then its worth it.
      Also, I use other camping memberships if thousand trails isn’t near were I want to go. Overall, its saves us money. Its not for everyone but works for us.
