California Campgrounds Overview
Camping is available all year long within California. Popular destination camps fill up fast on any given Friday (in the summer time or any warm weekends), anytime of the year. Holiday weekends are busiest. Most of the well-known 'scenic spots' in California recommend a campground reservation. Camping rates and availability vary with location and season, but expect to pay a premium at most all State Parks, National Parks and most all lake camping.

Small Campgrounds are located on the highways often charge less fees; The smallest of campgrounds (on back roads) have fewer amenities, meaning really cheap, or free of charge. Bring your own toilet paper. Get yourself a shovel, a bucket and obtain a free campfire permit, so you can camp is designated areas for free. California BLM and most National Forests have open camping, dispersed camps, otherwise known as free primitive camp sites, located far away from everyone!
