RV Park Review: Far Horizons 49er Village RV Resort (Plymouth, CA)

I am admittedly a person who is not too keen on RV Parks. If I am out camping I like feeling a closer connection with nature and I don’t ever get that sense when I am staying at an RV park. A couple of years ago we headed down to Plymouth, CA for a wedding we and we stayed a the Far West 49er RV Resort and it was really nice. As we needed to be in town and weren’t really “camping” and it worked perfectly.

20130623-090848.jpgWe camped on our way down, but once we got to Plymouth decided to rent one of the cabins since we weren’t sure just how hot it was going to be, it gave us a little more room to stretch out, and showering before the big event seemed like a good idea! The cabin we rented was a 1-bedroom, but it had a loft upstairs with 2 twin beds. It came with a fully stocked kitchen and was very comfortable and clean. The big bonus was the air conditioning! Breakfast came with our stay in their deli, which was a really nice bonus of having the cabin too!

We parked the trailer in a spot next to the cabin for the few nights we were there too, which was handy for going back and forth to get clothes and groceries. The spots for trailers were well equipped and level. They have something for every trailer type and variety of camping. Even though we didn’t sleep in our trailer, it would have been comfortable. Lots of spots have good shade too. There are some really nice mature trees here.

The campground is walking distance to Plymouth’s Main Street where you can find restaurants and the grocery store is close by also!

The grounds were beautiful and quiet. There were ducks and other foul swimming in the pond where you can fish. There were nice pools for humans too (there are some adult only hours to be observed) and spa, a pool room, sporting equipment, a playground, horseshoes and shuffleboard. They also plan various events for families on the ground and the vary depending on the time of year. Tours will also leave from here so you can try some of the fine wine in the area. If you love a beautiful red wine, one winery you should definitely visit is the Charles Spinetta Winery. In addition to their tasting room they also house an amazing art gallery.

Another neat excursion for families is a trip to The Black Chasm National Natural Monument in nearby Volcano. The cave itself is amazing yet small. We got to see some beautiful things we haven’t seen in other caves and it where we learned that caves are one of the safest places during an earthquake. The cave was great, but I think the biggest fun was working the sluice boxes out front. We bought a bag of sand from the gift shop and spent nearly an hour in the water sorting things. We enjoyed our time there a lot!

If you are heading to Plymouth, even without a trailer, this is a great option over a hotel. And if you ever considered tiny living, this can give you a sense of what that can be like!
