3 Great Places to Camp in California

In San Diego on the Bay, there’s the positively resort-like Campland, with its posh amenities, waterfront location, RV hookups, sandy beach, and activities galore for children and adults.  It features pool and Jacuzzi, Marina, Market, Game Room, and Hungry Wolf Cafe.  You can even follow them on facebook and Twitter.

A drive up the coast, 25 miles south of Carmel in Big Sur, is the much more primitive Big Sur Campground. Minimal amenities – camp store, playground, and laundry, and sparse activities – basketball, volleyball, and kids’ playground signal an opportunity to relax and unwind. A few cabins nestled among the giant redwoods feature private baths and up to 2 bedrooms each.  RV sites accommodate trailers and motorhomes up to 40 feet in length.

For those heading even further north, check out Casini Ranch, which lies along the Russian River in Sonoma County, CA.  Special activities include beach bonfires, outdoor movie nights, and hay rides. Enjoy the hills, the river, camping, and of course, Napa Valley and Sonoma Valley wineries while you’re at it.
