The California Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds is distributing copies of Camp-California! The Camper’s Guide to California, a free, four-color glossy magazine that lists more than 700 campgrounds and RV resorts throughout the Golden State.
“This directory is unique because it includes listings of privately owned campgrounds as well as campgrounds in county, state and national parks, which you typically won’t find in the same directory, either in print or online,” said Debbie Sipe, executive director of the California Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds.
The directory is free and can be picked up at most campgrounds that are affiliated with the California Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds as well as California Welcome Centers, Camping World and Bass Pro Shop stores throughout California. It can also be ordered online through Camp-California.com. However, there is a small fee to cover the cost of postage.
“The only California campgrounds that are not listed in this directory are campgrounds on Forest Service and BLM land, which are too numerous to include in the 104-page directory,” she said. Even with those exceptions, the California RV Travel & Camping Guide has the greatest diversity of campground listings in the state.
And unlike most campground guides, which merely list facts involving each park, the California RV Travel & Camping Guide features detailed descriptions of privately owned campgrounds that are written by the park’s owners to better describe the experience campers are likely to have at their park.
The guide also includes locator maps that feature multiple campgrounds on the same page so you can see where the campgrounds are located in relation to places you might like to visit.
Informational grids are also provided that indicate if the campground is big rig friendly or offers pull-through sites, tent sites, rental accommodations, swimming pools, showers, hot tubs or spas, playgrounds, convenience stores and laundry service. The informational grid also indicates if the park charges a fee for Wi-Fi service.
Campground listings also include information on fun things to see and do nearby, such as fishing, kayaking, hiking, wine tasting, etc.
Camp-California.com includes a searchable database of more than 350 private campgrounds and RV resorts throughout California, and new parks are added to the website each month.
