I'm coming from Scotland for a fortnight and pickup an RV on the 2nd from LA.
Here's what i have so far and i'd love to pick your brains if i'm going on the right lines.
Also i'm a little baffled over RV camping. There seem to lots of different types of campsites - state parks etc Are some more expensive than others? Will the first two weeks of oct be so busy that we need to book now for everywhere? I appreciate Yosemite we will need to stay outside of the NP.
And excuse my ignorance but can you park 'off the beaten track'/ is this legal?
Lastly does the $80 annual pass include entries to all NPs and SPs?
