From the giant redwoods of Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park to the beaches of San Diego, California camping and glamping have it all. And while gazing out of your tent at rolling Sonoma County vineyards might feel straight out of Hollywood, your set designer is Nature herself.
Our dream California camping adventure starts with stunning views of Mt. Shasta in Northern California. An hour-long hike on the McCloud River trail leads to Middle Falls and a (quick) swim in the icy water. When the sun goes down, crack open a cold one fresh from the Mt. Shasta Brewing Company and watch the Milky Way appear like magic.
There are many camping options where you can enjoy fishing, hiking, and boating along the numerous beaches and rivers in and around the state. Hikers will find rivers, lakes, waterfalls, forests, and spectacular views everywhere they travel in this majestic region of California. It is no wonder that California provides some of the absolute best camping in the nation. With over 250 state parks and nine national parks, camping in California is certain to be one of the most rewarding experiences you will ever have.
