We stayed here while visiting Yosemite. It is about a 45 minute drive from the Campground into Yosemite via Hwy 49 / 120. The sites are spacious and clean. We went in April and during the week so the campground was not crowded at all. It is hard to find a level driving pad, but we were tenting it and the tent sites themselves are pretty level. there were some nice walking trails around the lake, watch out for the poison oak. The lake was a good temperature and from what I heard, good fishing. Bring bug spray, the mosquitoes are very hungry.
We us to come here often when I lived in Grass Valley. Recently I had the opportunity to go back and camp with my family. The place has changed some. Lots of campsites, and campers, all right next to each other, which made for a lot of camp noise, especially in the evening, but that is part of the fun of camping in a campground. The lake was a perfect temperature for swimming. There is a small store that is by the marina where we all had ice cream and the dock was perfect to lay on for star gazing and watching for shooting stars.
This is one of my favorite campsites in California. There all the falls, which are beautiful, the lake for swimming and water sports and lots of hiking trails. The campsites are dry sites (no hookups), but they have updated bathrooms and showers. They also have cabin for rent, but you have to bring your own bedding. The visitors center is awesome and they always have programs going on for kids and adults alike. Both the falls and lake Britten is within walking distance. Even if I am not camping, I stop here to visit when going through CA.
Whiskytown Lake is a great recreation lake, from boating, swimming to fishing. Oak Bottom is shores are surrounded by pines and manzanita. It has a pretty large campground with tent and dry RV sites. There is a nice swimming beach and a marina. They have showers on the beach and in the campground area. My favorite thing to do is here is go kayaking in the coves. A short drive around the lake will take you to Whiskeytown picnic area where they have some awesome hiking trails.
Our visit to Lake Almanor was amazing. My Dad brought his sail boat and the wind was perfect for sailing. The campgrounds are spacious and the restrooms are clean. Their is a nice cafe within walking distance. They do patrol this campground a lot. Keep your dogs on a leash. The small town of Chester is not far away and is a delightful little town. P.S. Could not find my photos :-(….
This is an awesome campground north of Eurika CA. They have several sites, but it is a very popular campground so book in advance. The walk down to Agate beach is a long one, down a lot of steps. It is worth it though. I could lay in the sand for ever looking for agates. Make sure to check the tide tables, the bottom steps on the trail are sometimes under water during a high tide.
This is a great camp area, however when we went the Lake was really low. It was still very nice for fishing and kayaking. The camp sites were really nice, some had steps down to the picnic tables, the RV pads were nice and level. The restroom facilities were very clean. Beautiful views of the Trinity Alps. This campground takes a while to drive to, but totally worth it.
Bullard is a must see if you are on the Oregon Coast. The campground is full of overgrown greenery, it has many RV, Tent sites and a couple Yurts. The best part about Bullards State Park is the Beach and the lighthouse. The beach is awesome for beach combing with clam fossils, agates and lots of drift wood. The tide can be a little crazy, so keep an eye out.
This is a great recreation area close to the town of Vernal, about 5 miles out. There is a lake for fishing, swimming and water sports. There is a nice beach with pavilions and picnic sites. The campground has full hook up spots, Electrical, a cabin you can rent and tent sites. There is a great group site that gives you access to the water and has a covered pavilion. There are many walking trails and atv trails accessible from this campground.
This is a awesome State Park. The campgrounds are crowded but there is so much foliage that you still feel very secluded in your camp spot. There is everything from full hook ups to tent sites. The best part about this park is the beach. It is a short walk down an improved trail, but is well worth the walk. Beautiful flat sandy beach. b
This campsite is in the middle of the Dinosaur National Monument on the green river. It is a small campground with a group site and some individual picnic / camp sites. There is a boat launch and this is commonly where the rafters either enter or exit a raft trip. The sites are small and the bathroom facilities are kept pretty clean. There are a several good hiking trails in the area including some with petroglyphs along the way. Lots of wildflowers and wildlife. The newly remodeled Dinosaur query is worth going through and is only about two miles away. The only problem I had with this site is making & paying for the reservations was a little difficult. Also there is a fee to get into the monument.
Red Fleet is an awesome lake for water sports. The campground is nice. The RV parking and hook ups are actually in the parking lot, but there is a nice green open space with tables that are assigned to each site. The tent camping is a little more primitive along a windy trail in the cedars, also with nice picnic tables. There is a beach area with a floating dock to swim out to. They rent kayaks, paddle boards and canoes. The bathrooms are clean and well kept. There is a boat launch and dock & fish cleaning station. Numerous trails surround the park for hiking, including the Dinosaur track trail where you can actually see dinosaur tracks in the sandstone rock.
This is a very nice get away spot about an 75 minutes outside of Vernal Utah. I have camped at this campground several times and it is always an enjoyable experience. The sites cannot be reserved. It is first come first serve. The road to the campsite is well maintained. The campsite itself is nestled in the pines with craggy mountains all around it. The best part about this campground is the fishing. If you get one of the sites towards the back of the campground the creek runs right by it and fishing for pan size trout is a blast. The sites themselves are well maintained with a lot of open space between the sites.
Grizzly Ridge yurt can be accessed in Winter or Summer, by snowshoeing, snowmobiling, 4 wheel drive or hiking in. We decided to hike into the yurt. The hike itself is about 4.5 miles with a 1200 feet elevation gain, it is a good trail and easy to follow. The yurt itself has a nice outside deck, two double bunk beds, wood stove, cook stove and some pans and utensils. People leave cleaning supplies and overall the yurt was pretty clean. The view is outstanding. There is not running water, so make sure you bring plenty… or melt snow in the winter. There is an outhouse on site. There was an occasional 4 wheeler that would come by, but other then that it was complete solitude. They have a journal on site for people to log their experience. It is worth reading.
We have stayed at Kamp Klamath a couple times. We go over for the Salmon run in August / September. The staff here is always friendly and accommodating. We typically stay in the meadow, however their are more improved RV campsites near the road. There are walking trails nearby and a lot of wild blackberry bushes to snack on. The ocean is about 1 mile away right at the mouth of the Klamath river with an awesome beach. Good fishing, beach combing, kite flying etc. There is not a lot of parking and you do have to walk a ways to the water, but it is well worth the walk. Saturday nights in the summer are the best as they do a salmon cook out with live music.
This is a great campground that can be accessed by Vehicle or you can be adventurous and hike the 4 miles in on the Rim Trial. We chose to hike in and tent camp. The hike itself is a beautiful, easy hike. We went in the early summer with temperatures in the mid 70's You cross over skull creek and some other water run off. The campground itself is in the pines, with a beautiful view of the canyon overlook with Flaming Gorge lake at the bottom. The sites were clean with picnic tables & fire pits. The restroom facilities (pit toilets) were also clean. There is a visitor center within walking distance and Red Canyon Lodge is also within 1/2 mile of the campground and offers a small general store, cabins and a nice restaurant. My only complaint was that they did not have the water tuned on. After hiking in (with dogs) we were in need of water. Luckily the lodge was close by.. so 40 dollars later, we had enough water for the dogs, dinner and hiking out.
Whitney Portal Campground is located in the Inyo National Forest. It is the access point for anyone to hike / climb Mount Whitney. The campground itself has may RV and tent sites, but reserve plenty in advance as it fills up quick. If you are planning on hiking from the portal they do have one night only campsites for the hikers just outside the parking area at the portal. Just make sure you get a parking pass from the Forest Service office in Lone Pine. On the Trail there are three distinct places to camp. Lone Pine Lake is 2.4 mile is and is a nice unimproved camp area with a beautiful lake. Outpost camp is about another 1.5 miles up and is in a grassy meadow with a stream, also unimproved. The last camp area before summitting is Trail camp. It is 6 miles in from the portal, there is a small lake for a water source (use a filter). This is above tree line and the ground is hard with granite rock, so a tent wont stake. We used rocks instead and tied off with guide lines. This whole area, from the portal campground to the summit is amazing. The portal also has a small store and cafe. Food is awesome, Highly recommend.
We held a family reunion here in the group site which is just north of the regular campsites. There were about 150 people, 14 campers and several tents. There is two bathroom facilities, plenty of picnic tables and a group fire pit with bench seating. The rangers came in once a day to see if we needed anything and were very friendly. The river is about 1/4 mile away and has good fishing. There is also a nice trail head close by for hiking or horseback riding. The area is beautiful with pines.
