Labor Day Weekend Activities

Camp-California.com has also identified campgrounds that still have vacancy over the holiday weekend

Campgrounds across California are gearing up for Labor Day weekend with a variety of activities that include everything from outdoor barbecues to live entertainment and outdoor movies.  But while many campgrounds are sold out for the holiday weekend, Camp-California.com has compiled a statewide listing of campgrounds, RV parks and resorts that still have spaces available.

"There aren't a lot of them, but there's enough to make it worthwhile for last minute planners to see what we've got," said Susanne White, a spokeswoman for the California Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds, which hosts Camp-California.com, a statewide travel planning website.

Camp-California.com includes travel information and links to privately owned and operated campgrounds all over California as well as an updated list of campgrounds that still have vacancy over Labor Day weekend.

To find them, click on the "Discover California" tab on the upper left section of the Camp-California.com homepage. Then click "Places to Go" and click on "Labor Day Weekend" to find a listing of campgrounds, RV parks and resorts with holiday weekend vacancy.
