Best campsites CA???

Hello! We just purchased our first 28ft TT and are looking for the best sites in CA! We really enjoy oceans/river front/lakeside but are open to dessert, mountains, etc. we have 28ft so need sites that accommodate that length. Looking for tips as newbies and ones to conquer once we're seasoned appreciate all tips! Also any websites or books you recommend?! Thanks in advance!!!

Don't know where in CA you're interested in visiting. In any case, I like using the State Parks. Download the CalParks app on iTunes.

As i am sure you are learning we in CA are fortunate to have so many great places to go. Here are a few places my family really enjoys, both with and without hook-ups...

Pismo Coast Village, Pismo, CA
Sequoia Ranch, Three Rivers CA (just outside the HWY 198 entrance to Sequoia NP)
Camp Edison, Shaver Lake, CA
MacKerricier State Park, Fort Brag, CA
Zypher Cove RV Resort, South Lake Tahoe

Enjoy finding places you want to go back too.

Lake Woodward near Oakdale CA. It's a county park with dry camping next to the water. T Island is my favorite place. Lake water is warm. Full hook-up also available. Wave runners, fishing and skiing allowed too. Bathroom and showers also there.

When I lived for 7yrs in Santa Rosa, Ca we called everything north of Santa Cruz, and Fresno "northern" Ca. Are you in northern Ca?

I camped/drove in my VW bus every place North of SF and west of hwy 5.
I have camped EVERY WHERE in Calif.

Get this book

DeLorme Atlas & Gazzetter, California. I got mine at Barnes & Noble

has camping and backroads. The little roads will lead you into the forests that are more fun, less people.

I also have a good book bought in 2000. Recreational Lakes of Calif.
ISBN 0-9433798-20-5
Has all the lakes, descriptions, camping info, directions, etc. Don't know if it is still in print. Phone # 800-668-0076

get Trailer Life campground guide &
Woodall guide too

a little farther than you listed but: troy meadow campground between the owens valley and kern river canyon - 9600ft. the june lake loop, especially OH! ridge. Boondocking next to glass mountain between Mammoth and June, bodie, any number of places around Tahoe, lots of great places between Lassen and Shasta, and of course, Jalama beach.

A lot of the state parks and parks in general along the ocean are going to be booked solid, but we do love Pismo for the off season. We were just there last weekend and the park was 85% full and it's not quite the season yet.

Lake Oroville by Oroville Ca is a very nice State campground. Has full hookups for 30-40'
No lakeside views that I know of but a very clean State Park. Look it up on Google. Has marinas, showers, great bass fishing, and nice people.
