This list comprises some of the most interesting parks within the state though there are plenty more.

About 200 miles east of San Fransisco lies Yosemite National Park. There are ten campgrounds located in the park for guests, including accommodations for fifth wheels and travel trailers. Three Pines campgrounds provide options for guests in the upper, lower and northern areas. The entrance to the Upper Pines has a dump station.

In the quiet town of Crescent City, travelers can hook up their RVs at the Redwoods RV Resort. There are so many things to enjoy in the area that tourists often spend several weeks exploring it all. The campground has a mascot, Woodrow Redtree and a mission to make certain everyone has a great time while there.

There is a store conveniently located on site so guests can restock their cupboards without going anywhere. Laundry facilities and hot showers are also available.

The Lassen Volcanic National Park is a top destination for those who appreciate natural beauty. The Hat Creek Resort and RV Park sits on the bank of Hat Creek and is only 11 miles from the park. This camping site is the perfect blend of nature and modern amenities. Full hook ups are available and guests may also opt for wi-fi and cable when registering. A laundry room, game room and volleyball court are among the other benefits guests can use.

Guests can fish the creek without ever leaving the park. However, there is plenty to do nearby, including golf and skiing.

The Sequoia National Park is one of the most famous parks in the country. Songs about the redwood trees express the awe people feel when viewing these incredible visions. The Three Rivers Hideaway is only three miles from the entrance and offers full services throughout the year.

Alternatively, the Sequoia Park KOA has pull through sites with fire rings and picnic tables. A dog park and playground are available and the site includes cable. Guests can purchase wi-fi, propane and snacks while staying there. The comfortable environment also has a swimming pool.

Things to Do at an Army Corps Campground

posted by Brandon Esparza @ 1:28pm, Wednesday 4 February 2015.

Camping is one way to remove yourself from the hectic situations that every day life can bring. Fortunately, RVs make camping more enjoyable for the many people that do not enjoy even the though of roughing it in the wild. Not everyone enjoys sleeping on the lumpy ground in a tent that fills with mosquitoes each time the door is zipped open. If you are looking for a great place to explore during your next RV outing, consider visiting one of the many Army Corps camping locations. Why would you visit an Army Corps camp? There are many reasons and a few of them are included in the list of activities below.

Boating, Fishing and Swimming

You can enjoy the clean waters found in the Army Corps campgrounds across the country. Head out for a day of fishing on your boat or fish from the docks or shores to catch your favorite fish for dinner. Not one for fishing? You can cool yourself off on those hot summer days by taking a dip in the cool, clear waters and enjoy your days under the sun with your family.


Trail Exploration

Whether you enjoy getting out for a hike, riding your bike, horse or ATV, you can find campgrounds with trails to do all four. If your horse is a bit rattled by the roaring engines of ATVs in the woods, consider looking for camps with trails dedicated to non-motorized activity. This will protect your horse from becoming frightened when a group of ATV riders comes zipping by. If you enjoy opening up the motor of your ATV, look for a camp that has trails dedicated to motorized vehicles only. These trails will provide you a safe route to take without having to constantly be concerned about pedestrians, cyclists and horses being around the next bend.


Golf and Frisbee Golf

Nothing says vacation like heading out to a lush green golf course on a sunny afternoon. Many of the Army Corps camp grounds have well rated golf courses for you to enjoy. If you are into competing with others, look into the sponsored matches that are held from time to time to compete with other golfing RV enthusiasts and help raise a little money for a good cause.

If you are into frisbee golf, take your time to look around for a Army Corps campground with a frisbee golf course. These are a little harder to find than traditional golf, but it is possible.


Playgrounds

If there are little ones in your family, these campgrounds are commonly equipped with great playgrounds for the kids to enjoy. You can relax in the shade as your kids swing into the breeze and zip down the winding slides until their little hearts are content. By the end of the day, they will be exhausted, you will be refreshed and everyone will sleep like newborn babies.

Take your time when considering your next RVing destination. You can find an affordable place to spend several days with your family in your RV and create memories that will be cherished for life.
