With its diverse landscape, its relatively mild climate, and its magnificent scenery, California is a paradise for outdoor and sports enthusiasts. If you’re looking for the ideal spot to pitch your tent or park your RV, Camping Northern California offers up more than 700 public campgrounds throughout the area’s widely varied scenery. The state contains 27 national parks and monuments, over 500 state and county parks, 20 million acres of national forests, and numerous other recreational lands under federal, state, and local jurisdiction. Stretching from the northern mountains to the southern deserts, the campgrounds range from primitive sites for tents or self-contained RVs to plush resorts with all the amenities. What they have in common is that they all provide a memorable outdoor experience.
