We Visited Boulder Creek RV Resort In Our Huge Fifth Wheel
In 2022, we began our Pacific Northwest RV Tour, starting about 90 minutes north of Los Angeles in Lone Pine, California. As an enthusiastic photographer, Pleshette had always wanted to drive U.S. 395, which runs all the way up through Oregon and Washington to the Canadian border.
We’d planned to be in this area for a month or so, and we made our way up to our first stop, Boulder Creek RV Resort. We’re both I.T. folks and we work full time, so we always seek out campgrounds that are big rig friendly with proper amenities that can accommodate our RV and our needs as remote workers.
Where is Boulder Creek RV Resort?
This is one of the first RV parks along U.S. 395 in California, just north of Los Angeles. It’s situated in the Owens River Valley, just south of Bishop, California and west of Death Valley.
With the Sierras to the west, low desert scenery, and wide open spaces, Boulder Creek RV Resort is right next to the open area of the Owens River Dust Mitigation Project. In addition, our site was sand and gravel. Yes, you can imagine how much dust there was!
This park is billed as a resort because they have a pool, jacuzzi, a great store, a great dog area, and seasonal events and activities for all.
You can see their full list of available amenities on RV LIFE Campgrounds.

As part-time Content Creators, we review campgrounds from our perspective. There is a huge difference between a Class A and a fifth wheel over 35′. When campgrounds say they are big rig friendly, is that for all RVs or just Class As? How “friendly” is their campground with respect to big rigs, maneuvering in the campground, backing in or pulling through?
We strive to find and review those campgrounds that are indeed big rig friendly and have the amenities needed for today’s remote workers and digital nomads. Boulder Creek RV Resort lived up to our expectations.
