It’s Halloween week at Flying Flags RV Resort in Buellton, CA. This is a fantastic place to spend a few days, or even better, a week. The weather is magnificent, even if it’s hotter than the customarily warm days of Indian Summer here. We are so excited as we pull in! There is no doubt this is going to be a great place to stay! The entrance is decorated with fall pumpkins and scarecrows to help you get in the mood.
Flying Flags is a massive park, with a large extension of newer modern concrete sites, both pull-through and back-ins, with generous green space and landscaping on both sides of each site. The older section has mature trees that provide an abundance of shade.
Check-in was a breeze in their airy, wine farm style motif reception area adjacent to three ample long lanes to park your rig while you check in, or to drop your tow car. We’ll leave ours connected as our site is a pull-through.
We opted for the newer section and are so glad we did. Pulling over 50 feet of motorhome and tow-car, we really appreciate the ease of site access and the spacious surroundings.
The utilities are cool looking with full hookups and 50 amp power. They look like little lighthouses that glow in the dark so you can find your way back home. We sure appreciated the 50 amps since we needed to run the air conditioners much of the time.
Wow! Even their bathrooms have been remodeled and could easily pass for 5 star hotel accommodations.
And they have a wonderful game room, where you can relax, watch TV, play board games, cards or play pool. There are also bocce ball courts, hot tubs, play grounds for the kids and a giant swimming pool. They really thought of everything so you can stay and play all in one spot!
One of the great things about Flying Flags is you don’t have to have an RV to join in the fun! There are rows of Airstream campers with private fenced backyards complete with full outdoor kitchens you can rent, wine theme cabins and tent camps at Safari Village just to name a few.
If you happen to be here on a Friday night, don’t pass on the BBQ dinner! They serve up ribs, tri-tip and chicken in a savory BBQ sauce and you can choose several sides too, like cole slaw or baked beans. Yummy, chewy turtle brownies make the perfect dessert to finish off the meal! Bring your own wine (no corkage fee) and settle in around the crushed glass fire ring. Another great place to make new friends!
As night falls, the goblins start scurrying about. Little kids all dressed up in their Halloween costumes go door to RV door looking for treats not tricks. We’re hanging out the witch wind sock and turning on our eery under-coach lighting to attract some of the little goblins to our doorstep.
We made some great new friends here too, Rich and Bethany, Tammy and Chuck and Victor and Susie. Which is one of the many reasons we wanted to head out on the road. One of the best parts about RVing is the people! We feel sure we will meet up with our new friends somewhere down the road and that is so much fun to think about!
