Default Campsite

Next month, we are going to be camping in Alpine,California. after Alpine, we will be going up to Napa and eventually, Bodega Bay. Can anyone recommend a nice campground between Alpine and Napa?

Hey Tom,

California has a bunch of great campgrounds. For the sake of narrowing down the list of choices, do you want to travel up the coast, or follow the mountains?
There are pretty spectacular views either way. The coast route has San Simeon and the Hearst Castle, Big Sur, Monterey Bay, Pebble Beach, the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco, Mur Woods and everything in between! Following the mountains can take you through Sequoia N.P., King's Canyon N.P, Yosemite N.P., historic Placerville, Sacramento, and into Napa Valley from the east.

Oh and, ho hum, there is always I-5... truckers delight! Good for making time but little to see besides the California Aquaduct.

So let us know your approximate route and then the west based members of the HTF can suggest some cool camping spots. BTW, will you want full service campgrounds, or dry camps?

While you're stopped at Alpine, you should take a side trip north to the mountain town of Julian for apple pie. Its the town specialty!

Jim

This is a perfect time to visit the Anza-Borrego Desert Sate Park near Alpine ... as the wild flowers should be displaying their beauty this time of year. Also the elephant seals are doing their thing at Aņo Nuevo State Park along the Monterey Coast and Gray Whales are migrating along the Point Reyes National Seashore . Try Doran Beach Regional Parks Bodega Bay where you can camp right on the Pacific Ocean sand. It will take you months even this time of year to see everything so you will have to narrow down your must see list!
