Please view Vista Recreation's statement regarding EV Charging below:

Protecting our environment is and always has been a priority for Vista Recreation, and we are researching the addition of EV charging stations in our campgrounds; however, there are currently no EV charging capabilities at our facilities.

While many of our campgrounds have electrical pedestals to power RVs, these pedestals function differently than EV charging stations. RV electrical pedestals are designed for non-continuous loads, not the constant electricity flow required to charge EV batteries. It is essential to know that plugging your EV into a 30-50 amp electric pedestal designed for RV usage can permanently damage your vehicle, as well as the campground’s electrical system. Even if your vehicle came from the manufacturer with a charging converter, it does not change the way electricity flows through the electrical infrastructure.

Until our campgrounds can be equipped with EV charging stations, we cannot allow charging of such vehicles.
