California Camping Trip

So you’re looking to plan a California camping adventure?  Well, let me tell you, you’ve chosen one of the best places in the world for camping.  Not only are there amazing state parks, but there are some gorgeous tucked away little spots just waiting to be explored.

California is truly a state that has it all, which makes you very smart for considering a California camping trip.  Because of the variety in the terrain of the state, you can find yourself in the presence of beautiful lakes, mountains, streams, coastlines, forests, beaches and deserts.  First you need to choose exactly where you want to go and what you want to see.  The time of year and season should greatly influence your decision as the mountains can make for an extreme California camping trip in the winter, as can the desert in the summer.

Some of my favorite California camping trips have been at the campgrounds in California’s state parks.  Depending on the park you choose and the type of campsite, you can have a variety of different camping experiences.  I’d like to share a few tips I have when it comes to California state park camping.  I recommend thinking about reservations early.  Many of the popular campgrounds can book up fast so if it’s a gorgeous time of year or a holiday weekend or season and there’s great camping weather, don’t leave making your reservation to Friday like everybody else.  I always try to get ahead of the crowd and start booking as soon as I can.

Most campgrounds will have amenities that will make for a lovely stay, but make sure you find out ahead of time as some sites leave you on your own.  Don’t worry, though… Some of my favorite California camping trips have involved me alone against nature!  So what are you waiting for?  The great outdoors is waiting for you, so get cracking on planning that California camping adventure!
