Rancheria RV in Hat Creek, California with it's Lake Catherine

Rebecca spotted this little snake skin coming out of it's hole, strange.


It's a long drive, 370 miles from Elkton to Hat Creek, breaking our rule of < 250 miles in a day. But we like this place, it's serene and comfortable so we don't mind the drive all that much. If you own an RV, you owe it to yourself to stay here on your way through California. It's the Rancheria RV Ranch on Hwy 89, for your 31 bucks you'll get all the basic FHU's and access to fishing lake Catherine on the property. We haven't fished it yet, Dave says he didn't this time, because he'd like to have the fish take it easy. Oh that's perhaps why he didn't catch any salmon this summer, he didn't want to harass them too awfully bad. Sure! Besides lake Catherine and the many size XL trout we saw, they have a nice little restaurant in the lodge. Dave took Rebecca on a dinner date there, (he's so romantic) complete with red & white checkered table cloths. The food was fabulous and the service impecable, even though they were busy. We counted 10 other couples for dinner while we were there. In the morning, after a great nights sleep, we ate a terrific breakfast there, too. Then, it was on the raod again and a relatively short drive (about 115 miles) to Reno and the Grand Sierra Resort RV Park. NOTE: We just noticed we have posted slightly more than 2900 photo's on this travel BLOG. A big thanks to all of you who have traveled with us, most vicariously, and encouraged us to with your endearing notes.
