  1. Default NoCal weekend camping trip

    Hi everyone,

    My hubby and I were planning to go to Yosemite this weekend for some camping... but after a quick check at the weather forecast we've decided against it. They're expecting rain and snow on Friday and we'd like to steer clear of that - we've had bad luck last couple times we tried driving in the snow. :-(

    So my question for you is: do you have any suggestions for a nice northern California camping trip? Some place with nice views and good hiking spots would be wonderful. We live near Sacramento and we're planning to leave Friday morning and be back by Sunday night. Also, we'll be taking our VW campervan, so a little rain is fine, but we'd like to avoid the snow.

    Thanks!
    Jessi

    Yeah, it is shaping up to be a wild fall -- in terms of weather. Welcome to the Great American RoadTrip Forum! Burney Falls State Park has some nice trails and views. The liklihood of real snow falling this weekend is pretty low -- ~20% chance wouldn't be enough to change my plans. For that reason, and since it is closer, I would suggest some of the campgrounds along CA-108 between Twain Harte and Sonora Pass.

    Thanks Mark. Burney Falls State Park looks gorgeous. We've decided to go to Big Sur and Monterey this weekend, but I'll definitely keep Burney Falls on my list of places to visit.

    Thanks again!

    This is one of those must-see places and has a nice campground to boot.
