Tripleblaze.com Announces the 10 Best Campgrounds in California
From the jagged peaks in Yosemite to the crashing waves at Big Sur, California’s best campgrounds offer something for every outdoor adventurer.
It's no surprise that 8 of the top 10 campgrounds in California are located within easy striking distance of the Pacific coast. Yosemite National Park made a showing twice with the Yosemite National Park Campground and the Upper Pines Campground, both located in the Yosemite Valley. The coastal campgrounds were evenly spread between the redwoods in the north and the sandy beaches in the south, with two in the redwood forest and two at Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park.
"This list is a great showcase of the camping opportunities California has to offer," says Kelley Spurlock, Tripleblaze writer. "It reflects the variety that exists in the beautiful state of California. From the redwoods up north, to the sandy beaches down south, to the stunning waterfalls and cliffs that exist in Yosemite, California has it all."
Many of these campgrounds do take reservations and offer plenty of amenities for their visitors. However, two of the campgrounds on this list--Andrew Molera State Park Campground and the Spruce Grove Trail Campground--are walk-in/primitive sites. All of these campgrounds are located in either a regional park or a national park, and therefore are all government owned.
