Greetings from beautiful Cloverdale, California. We're hanging out with our Winnebago friends this weekend at the Cloverdale-Healdsburg KOA. It's been so perfect we've decided to stay an extra night.

This is not your run-of-the-mill KOA. While most KOAs offer a convenient spot just off the highway to spend a night or two, this place provides an out-of-the-way escape in Sonoma County wine country. The campground is located six narrow and windy miles from (and above) Highway 101. Situated on the top of a hill, there are nearly 360-degree views of vineyards and tree-covered hillsides. It's definitely tucked away! 

Any way you want to camp, you can do it here. There's plenty of room for RVs and tents. And, if you don't have either, you can choose one of their cozy Kamping Kabins. Pretty convenient!

Like most KOAs, the place is crawling with kids of all ages. Several school groups hosted campouts here this weekend. There were preschoolers, mothers and sons and quite a few families just enjoying the beautiful weekend. They've been fun to watch.

The Chardonnay Travelers made a good showing this weekend, with 15 or so coaches bringing their owners along. It was a very special weekend as some members who haven't been able to attend recently made the trip. And, another couple who came as visitors left as new members. It was wonderful to see all of these great people. We look forward to seeing them again soon.

It's another beautiful day in the neighborhood. So, we're off to do something. Surely we can find a geocache or two around here. 

More to come!
