Planning Tips

  • Packing Lists – This list will give you a start on your basic packing. Other more specific types of checklists you may want to create:
    • Trip Meal Plans & Food Supply Checklist
    • Cooking Gear/Camp Kitchen Checklist
    • Activities Gear Checklists
    • Personal Gear Checklist
    • Pet Needs Checklist
    • Medications Checklist
    • Camp Safety/First Aid Gear Checklist
    • Remote Area Survival Gear Checklist
  • Campfire Cooking and Camping Menu Tips & Guides – Campfire cooking is usually one of the main attractions of an outdoor camping trip that everyone enjoys, but carrying heavy boxes and coolers of food for your camp meals into and out of camp is one of the least fun jobs of the whole camping trip. Experienced camp cooks know that they miss many of the outdoor camping experiences they came for because they are busy preparing and cooking campfire meals. Some advance planning and some strategic packing techniques can go a long way to save time, weight and bulk, and get out of the camp kitchen quicker. Camping with Gus has some great packing tips and menu suggestions too!

The Camper's Guide to California!

Get the Guide

Camp-California is concerned about the health and safety of our campers and adventurers. While camping and outdoor activities do offer the ability to self-isolate, we are encouraging all California residents and travelers to shelter in place until further notice. We recognize that getting outdoors is what you do best, and we will be here to reacquaint you with nature once we're cleared for adventure again!


Most private parks are open with 14-day minimums. If you are a full-time RVer looking to shelter in place, a member of the traveling medical profession, or a utility worker looking for a park please call our office and we can connect you with an appropriate location.
