More About The Dos Reis Park

Lathrop, CA.

54 deg. clear, no wind.

Forecast = Partly cloudy. High of 73F. Winds from the WNW at 5 to 15 mph.

While Linda was doing some laundry, Jim was out and about taking some photos and talking to some nice RVers who were staying here at the Dos Reis Regional Park. This 1st photo is what you see as you look off to the left as you enter the CG section. The 5th wheel that you see in the photo belongs to a full-timing couple who are heading up to the Escapees Park in Sutherlin, OR.  It's on a site that is probably one of the longest sites in the park.

This next photo was taken from my site looking towards the berm that separates the CG from the San Joaquin River. The berm is not really necessary right now, but during certain times of the year, it stops the CG from flooding.

This one is taken from the top of the berm. You can see the river on the left and the CG on the right.

This is taken from the top of the berm looking down on the CG. You can see a few of the back-in sites.

This is, of course of me in my site as seen from the top of the berm. Jim had to unhook CLT from the back of me because he was sticking out onto the road behind me.
This park gets pretty busy on the weekends, but during the week, there's always been sites available when Jim and Linda have been here.

Like I said, this is a neat little park that is far enough from the Interstate so you don't hear any traffic noise. It has a nice "feel" to it and if we're ever back in this area, I hope Jim and Linda bring me back here again.

Today, we'll leave here and continue heading towards Oregon. We'll continue NNW on I-5 for a ways and then head West, towards the coast. Jim's got another RV Park spotted  on the way out to the coast that looks really interesting.

If it's as nice as it sounds, we'll stay there for 2 or 3 nights.

Did you know that California produces more than 17 million gallons of wine each year?


  1. What is the road condition of I-5. We are headed that way and both our neighbors told us to stay away from I-5. Way to bumpy.

  2. So far the part of I-5 that we've been on has been good. There were a few rough spots but was much better than CA-99 that we were on before we went over to 5.
