what is a good RV camping site that has a lake you can water ski in?
my mom is looking for a good camp site in southern california to camp in a RV in any answers are good and the lake thing is beacuse she wants to teach us 2 water ski so any help would be great any answers rule!
3 spots come to mind, one is serrano campground at Big bear lake,
another other is silverwood lake near crestline. And another is Perris lake in Moreno Valley
All have full hook up camp sites, Big bear and silverwood are in the mountains and very beautiful, Lake perris is considered high desert with rolling hills all around it but when not water skiing they have lots of bike trails around the lake.
Best skiing would be big bear followed next by Perris, Silverwood lake is divided by a wide center channel and only the north end has water skiing. Fishing is great at all three. And Perris has waterfowl/upland game hunting.
All three fill up fast on the weekends through reserve.gov campground reservations.
I need a free camping site for rv,near a creek,river,lake.?
Have 6 kids and a friend with rv.never been camping, summer is here and money is tight. I live in Coachella Valley.anyone know nice family oriented safe camp site near river,lake,pond,creek, in southern California?
Head to the Colorado river lots of free dispersed camping along the river, no facilities though bring your own everything.
Any suggestions to good camp sites in southern California?
We are looking for forest/lake/river kind of thing(doesnt have to be all three) where they have toilets, doesn’t matter if flush or vault but somewhere nice with wildlife and a lot to do.
price range 20ish and I’m not sure if we might take 2cars or 1 so not sure if sites allow that?
also sites that have fire pits
we are really flexible we just want to get away for a while and enjoy the outdoors
Last year we went to Wishon Campgrounds up in the Sequoias and it was great but we are willing to try somewhere else as well. I heard Kern River is a good one?
The Kern River at hobo flat is a great destination get reservations pronto. What’s good about the Kern is a hot spring is within walking distance to Hobo and there are dozens of first come sites below lake Isabella, at the lake and above lake isabella so whether you can get reservations or not you can find a spot to camp, river rafting, tubing, wildlife viewing, fishing boating are all possibility.
Big bear is great also, very popular, any water, lake and river destination in so cal if it is reservable will be booked solid through summer so good luck. Big Bear Serrano Campground on the north shore is a top choice and is a booked solid destination since it is near the boat launches, discovery center. And bike trails.
Head south and Rancho Cuyamaca state park is a popular destination Cuyamca lake has great fishing, trails are everywhere and abundant wildlife can be seen hundreds of wild turkey in the area, deer.
South and east of big bear in the San jacintos is Hemet lake near Idlywild great fishing lots of wildlife hiking trails and nearby off road trails.
Woodalls Camp ground directory lists everything there is so get your info and reservations in pronto you may be too late for most weekends already.
Where is a nice camping ground in Southern California…?
…where they have hiking trails, lake view and tent site. My friends and I are planning to this June.
I don’t to camp near the beach, I prefer Lakes. thanks
Hi! I’ve camped at a couple of places you might like. Although there isn’t a lake, there is a seasonal stream through Caspers Wilderness Park in the Orange County Parks system. Many sites are wooded and shaded, and there are miles and miles of great hiking trails.
I also camped at Lake Casitas up near Ventura. The lake is a reservoir, so you cannot swim in it, but they do allow fishing and boating. I don’t recall if the park itself has trails, but there are plenty of trails within a short drive. One bit of warning, however, the bathrooms were not so good! If you have a portable toilet of your own, I’d recommend bringing it. When we were there, an anusual number of people were throwing their used TP on the floor NEXT to the toilet instead of IN it.
Another park to look at is Cachuma Lake Recreation area – not far from Lake Casitas:
La Jolla Indian Reservation Campground:
And of course, there’s always Big Bear Lake:
