Heading South for Warm Weather Camping

Thursday, April 28th, 2016

Some people get the winter blues or February blahs, I always get itchy spring feet. I can’t wait to go camping and yet it’s still a bit cold in the north for me to brave the cool winter-moving-into-spring weather. Perhaps investing in some warmer winter sleep gear is needed, but sometimes heading out on the road for an adventure to warmer climates is what’s on the menu.

Understandably, warm-winter camping is found mainly in the southern side of the states. So treat yourself to some warm-winter camping and give yourself a thaw.

CALIFORNIA DREAMIN’
Beaches, sunshine and fun times all along the 1100-mile-long coast of California. With so many options to camp where do you start? The first stop would be a book store to pick up this little gem: California Coastal Commission’s California Coastal Access Guide. “With up-to-date maps and information, it is an invaluable travel guide for all coastal visitors—beachgoers, hikers, campers, swimmers, divers, surfers, anglers, and boaters—detailing where to go, how to get there, and what facilities and environment to expect.” If you miss picking up the book, here are a few sites not to be missed:

Channel Islands National Park underwater shot

Channel Islands National Park or there are seven state parks between Gaviota and Point Mugu all just offshore from the glamour and glitz of Santa Barbara. Climate is mild year round and in the winter as many as 50,000 seals and sea lions can be viewed at protected breeding grounds. For more information: nps.gov/chis.

Leo Carillo State Beach

Leo Carillo State Beach is 25 miles up the coast from Santa Monica along highway 1 and offers 1.5 miles of beach, tide pools, caves and reefs to explore. Giant Sycamore trees line the stream-bottomed canyon and provide shade for the campground. For more information: http://www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=616.

SOUTHERN GEMS

Camping on Cumberland Island National Seashore
Cumberland Island National Seashore, Georgia is only accessible by ferry but offers 17 miles of clean sand beaches, nearly 20,000 acres for exploring and features saltwater marshes, freshwater ponds, moss-covered forests and massive dunes. For more information: www.nps.gov/cuis.

The Natchez Trace Walking Trail, Mississippi/Tennessee

The Natchez Trace, Mississippi/Tennessee whose ancient game trail originally connected southern portions of the Mississippi River to central Tennessee salt licks. There are more than 400 miles of protected trail. There are no reservations and no fees to camp here. For more information: http://www.nps.gov/natr/index.htm

UTAH’S DIXIE

Snow Canyon State Park

Snow Canyon State Park named for pioneer Erastus Snow is a bit off the beaten path but well worth the travel to see the views. For more information: https://stateparks.utah.gov/parks/snow-canyon/.

ATVing in Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park

Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park is a bit higher in elevation, however, is well worth the cooler weather if you are an 4WD or ATV fanatic. And of course, the pink sand. For more information: https://stateparks.utah.gov/parks/coral-pink/.

DESERT VISTAS

Boulder Bay, Lake Mead National Recreation Area

Lake Mead National Recreation Area, Arizona/Nevada. There are just so many options to choose from between Lake Mead and Lake Mohave but a favorite is Boulder Bay. Three of America’s four desert ecosystems — the Mojave, the Great Basin, and the Sonoran Desert — meet here. For more information: http://www.nps.gov/lake/index.htm.

Arial view of the Big Bend

Big Bend National Park, Texas is on the Mexican border, where Rio Grande makes its “big bend” and is well worth the effort to travel here to experience with 800,000 acres to explore. For more information: http://www.nps.gov/bibe/index.htm.

So get out there and explore the adventures of winter camping in an RV today.

Phoenix – Local Attractions

Tuesday, July 16th, 2013

No trip to Arizona is complete without a stop at the Grand Canyon. Peer down into the mile deep river bed as you take in the jagged rocks and the amazing colors of the earth. Whether you want to take a trip down the river, do some back country hiking or see the canyon from high overhead there is a tour available for you.

The Phoenix Zoo has been rated one of the top five zoos in the United States for kids. Get up close and personal with a giraffe. At the Phoenix Zoo you can actually climb up and feed the giraffes, how cool. How about a ride on a camel? Or pet and feed a stingray? Monkey village allows you get in the cage with the monkeys. Walk through the exhibit of squirrel monkeys as they scamper just inches away from you. You can also hop on the Safari Train and let you tour guide tell you interesting things about the exhibits you pass, or take a ride on the Endangered Species Carousel. No wonder this zoo is in the top five.

Plan a visit to the Desert Botanical Gardens, wind your way through the peaceful scenic trails or take a guided tour to learn more about the beauty that surrounds you. The Gardens are open from 7 am to 8 pm so depending on the time of year you could even take in a sunrise or a sunset, what a beautiful way to start or end the day.

Castles n’ Coasters offers fun and excitement to kids of all ages. If you like the high adrenaline of riding the rails of a roller coaster try Desert Storm. In for something a little more physically challenging try On The Ropes, the 3 story obstacle course lets you test your skills and courage and lets you compete with your friends and family. I think the bumper boats and the mini golf might be more my speed.

The Phoenix International Raceway currently hosts two NASCAR race weekends annually. Stay right in the action in an RV so you don’t miss a thing. Even if you are not a NASCAR fan there is nothing like seeing this event live, the energy here is contagious.
