NOTE: Since this page was made in 1999 we've been to over 40 of the Thousand Trails
in the 12 years that we've now been members. Including 3 in Oregon, 8 in Washington,
5 in Texas, 2 in Tennessee, the many in California, plus some others. They have
ALL been really nice, some obviously nicer than others, but that is to be expected
as they each have their own "personalities". I will not add to this sampling of
pictures since it would require hundreds more pictures to show a sampling of all
the campgrounds. Suffice it to say that we are very happy with the Thousand Trail
membership campground system and spend a great deal of time in it.....
Wilderness Lakes is our "home" park. It's only 75 miles away near Sun City and we
go there a lot as a quick get-away for several weeks at a time. The canals that run
through it are regularly stocked with catfish. This has been a good "kick-back" place
for us when not on a long trip...

Pio Pico - San Diego
Just a few miles from Jamal, 20miles S.E. of San Diego, Pio Pico is very nice. All
the San Diego attractions such as Old Town, Balboa Park, and Coronado Island are
close by. Balboa Park has the Aerospace center, the famous San Diego Zoo, and various
Pool and jacuzzi area
"Old Town" bazaar
This T.T. preserve is high in the San Jacinto mountains at 7000 feet. It's surrounded
by thick forest and obviously is for summer use only.
Verde Valley - Arizona
This T.T. is near Cottonwood & Sedona Arizona. It's one of the nicest Thousand Trails
in the Southwest. The Verde river runs alongside it. The town of Sedona is only 15
miles away and is a great tourest attraction.

CRA - Havasu City, Arizona & CRA Emerald Cove
Although not a Thousand Trail, these are two of five CRA campgrounds along the Colorado
River that we are also a member of. Three of the CRA's have river access for "water
toys". The Havasu City one does not but is a favorite snowbird site and is only
2 miles from Havasu City and London Bridge. Emerald Cove is where you bring the
Natchez Trace 1000 Trails is about 100 miles west of Nashville, Tennessee. It is
near the top, and gets it’s name from, the old civil war route which General Sherman
took on his infamous “march to the sea” (Gulf of Mexico). The Trace today is a narrow
beautiful highway that generally follows the original Trace south. It’s a very pretty
and spread-out 1000 Trails campground.
