You must book several months ahead to get a space at a Calif State CG at the Beaches.
Some....of them keep about 20 spaces empty for one night stays for the passing thru people.
I've been lucky that way several times.
You all know how difficult it can be to know exactly when you will arrive due to those unforeseen troubles.
So missing your resevation can be a bummer. I've waited at the window at 9am to see if someone cancelled.
Yea! I got in.
Middle of the week campnites is easiest to reserve with just a couple months ahead.
Camping is sooooo......much fun !!! I've been doing it for 50 yrs. Reservations ?? what were those about ?? never needed them !
Now....gotta have 'em.
Guess we should not have told everyone how much fun we had every weekend.
Camping is alot like sex....its so much fun, the word spreads.....then everyones doing it.
