Day 319 of the Nowhere To Be Project gave us what very well might be our favorite night of RVing (so far). Faria Beach is a state park in Ventura County, California. It is so close to the ocean that if you were daring (and stupid), you could dive from the roof of your rig into the crashing waves of the Pacific!
The park itself is no frills with rustic and limited services (e.g. coin-operated showers), but the quiet seaside location simply cannot be beat. Full hook ups in an oceanfront space cost us $99 for two nights (there was a two night minimum and 14 day maximum). This seemed like a bargain considering the Pacific Ocean was our backyard during our stay. We walked the beach and sat on the rocks enjoying the view for hours. Watching the waves we wondered how we would ever manage to leave this beautiful spot.
Faria Beach State Park earns four out of five hearts only because of the limited services. If our rating scale was based solely on location, the score would be ten out of five! If Faria is full, which it often is, consider Rincon State Park ($30/night). It is just next door to Faria and offers an equally beautiful view, but does not offer hook ups. Hobson County Park is also nearby and looked very, very nice as well.
