Dave,
I meant to answer you when you first posted and got interrupted. Several years ago I had an assignment in Fresno and we couldn't find a CG in the city that was okay. We finally stayed at the Visalia KOA. The people there were terrific. We needed to leave our RV (BM - before Monty) there so we could go home and come back in a week and head for Northern Calif. They worked at a deal with us so we didn't have to pay full price for that week. If you are in that area, you will be close to one of our favorite places - Harris Ranch on the 5 at Coalinga. Be sure and have a steak dinner there. Terrific.
Happy trails.......................

Thank you HOTR and Sue.
I have been looking for campgrounds in the Fresno area, so far nothing has caught my eye. Looks like I will have to widen the search to near by towns/cities. Have the resume in, now just waiting for the higher powers to put me where I am supposed to be.

Good Luck and hope things go your way. However if you go full time you are going to have to upgrade to a 07.

Dave, Kingsburg is about 20 miles south of Fresno. We have a relative in Kingsburg, so we haven't taken the Montana with us while visiting, but I understand one of the RV parks there made some major improvements last year - might be worth investigating.

Dave,
Parrothead is right the KOA at Visalia is about the best. We live in the Visalia area and I worked and went to school in Fresno. Escappees have a Co-op Campground in Coursegold also. I have know some people who used the KOA and said it was great.

This time of year we are going into the fog season which will last until about Feb or March. In a bad season it will be so foggy you can not see across the street but latly it has been very mild with fog mostly at night. In the summer be prepared for 100 degree heat.

Good luck on the job. All-in-all Fresno is a great town with lots of activities and many recreational opportunites nearby. If you have any specific questions on the area let me know. I will be glad to help out.

Jim R.
