Those of you that know a little Spanish may believe that bolsa chica translates to little pocket. However, when you RV to Bolsa Chica State Beach in California and plan to stay the night, it translates to deep pockets. You see, when California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger realized you can’t spend more money than you take in, he more than doubled the camping fees in California State Parks overnight. What was a reasonably priced beach front park, became rather expensive for a backwoods boondocker like me.
Beachfront spaces now run $65.00 per night with non beachfront running $50.00 per night. Add in the $8.00 reservation fee and you are now looking at $73.00 beachfront and $58.00 for one of the “cheap spaces” by the highway! To get our moneys worth we arrived early and stayed until check out the next day. Then to “average things out” we sought out free boondock locations for the next several nights.
If you are looking for a beachfront RVing adventure, check out Bolsa Chica State Beach http://www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=642 . It is prime Southern California real estate right on the beach. Activities include; surfing, fishing, whale watching, swimming, beach fires and beautiful sunsets.
