BIG SUR IS STILL ACCESSIBLE — FROM THE NORTH — AND CAMPSITES, CABINS AND SAFARI TENTS ARE STILL AVAILABLE THIS SUMMER

 

Camp-California.com recommends travelers take State Route One southbound from Monterey and Carmel and enjoy Point Lobos State Reserve, the Carmel Mission and Old Town Monterey along the way

 

BIG SUR, May 25, 2017 — As most people know, State Route One south of Big Sur has been hit with major mud and rock slides since January, which have made sections of roadway impassable.

 

But the scenic redwood filled resort town is still easily accessible from the north and campgrounds in the area still have a few campsites and cabins available this summer, mainly during the week, said Debbie Sipe, executive director of the California Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds, which hosts Camp-California.com, the travel planning website.

 

“People who live in Southern California need to know they can reach Big Sur simply by heading up State Route 101 and cutting over to Monterey and heading south from there on Route One. It’s a spectacular drive,” said Debbie Sipe, executive director of the California Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds, which hosts Camp-California.com, the travel planning website.

 

Spectacular not only because of Route One’s scenic grandeur as it meanders along 1,000-foot cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean, but because travelers coming from the north pass through the historic towns of Monterey, California’s first capital city, and Carmel, which has one of California’s most beautiful Spanish missions.

 

Here’s a sampling of some of the sites to see while heading to Big Sur from the north:

SEVERAL OF CALIFORNIA’S PRIVATELY OWNED CAMPGROUNDS ARE SURPRISING THEIR GUESTS WITH TOP NOTCH  FOOD SERVICE, INCLUDING GOURMET FOOD ITEMS

 

Campgrounds and RV parks are serving up everything from pancakes, hamburgers, hot dogs and salads to fresh caught barbecued salmon to prime rib and homemade pies 

 

AUBURN, Calif., April 17, 2017 — California’s privately owned campgrounds are gaining notoriety for their onsite activities and entertainment as well as their rental accommodations for those who don’t have a tent or RV.

 

But some campgrounds and RV resorts are also surprising their guests with yet another enticement: delicious breakfasts, lunches and dinners.

 

“Depending on where you go, you can find campgrounds and RV resorts that serve everything from pancakes to prime rib,” said Debbie Sipe, executive director of the California Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds, which hosts www.Camp-California.com.

 

The mobile friendly travel planning website has a search function that allows consumers to search for campgrounds, RV parks and resorts with everything from snack bars to full service restaurants. Private parks usually tout their special food offerings on their websites. 

 

Kamp Klamath in extreme northwest California is a case in point. Every Saturday from the weekend before Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day weekend the park serves all you can eat barbecued salmon dinners on a redwood deck overlooking a meadow.

 

But this is no ordinary salmon.

 

“It’s Chinook salmon that’s caught fresh from the Klamath River,” said Aaron Funk, the longtime owner of Kamp Klamath, who proudly notes that Martha Stewart once said the best salmon she ever tasted came from Klamath River.

 

But Kamp Klamath doesn’t stop there.

“The days are warm. The rivers are rushing. The wildflowers are blooming, the ski resorts are still open and the road to the historic ghost town of Bodie is now open. It doesn’t get any better than that.”— Debbie Sipe, Camp-California.com 

 

JUNE LAKE, Calif., May 24, 2017 — It could be the end of June or beginning of July before road crews clear the snows that have buried State Route 120 through Tioga Pass and the higher elevations of Yosemite National Park.

 

But don’t let that stop you from making a trip to the Eastern Sierra.

 

“It is glorious there right now,” said Debbie Sipe, executive director of the California Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds, which hosts Camp-California.com, the travel planning website.

 

“The days are warm. The rivers are rushing. The wildflowers are blooming and the ski resorts are still open and the road to the historic ghost town of Bodie is now open. It doesn’t get any better than that.”

 

Indeed, Eastern Sierra campground operators say the trout fishing is amazing, the road to historic ghost town of Bodie is open, and Mammoth Mountain Ski Resort is still open, while kids 12 and under can ski for free at June Mountain Resort.

LASSEN RV RESORT TO OPEN A GOURMET BISTRO WITH FUSION MENU ITEMS INSPIRED BY NATIVE CUISINES FROM AROUND THE WORLD

 

Campground owners Phillip Martin and his wife, Jasmin, hope to open 

their bistro on Memorial Day weekend

 

MCAURTHUR, Calif., April 2017 — Aiming for a simpler life in nature, Phillip Martin left his high tech job in Silicon Valley three years ago and bought a small 44-site campground near Mount Lassen, which he runs with his wife, Jasmin.

 

Now the Martins are pursuing yet another dream — to open a gourmet bistro at their forested campground. 

 

“We hope to be open by Memorial Day weekend,” Phillip Martin said. “We are just waiting for the final approval of our beer and wine license to add to the bistro services.”

 

The Martins’ bistro has indoor seating for 24 and room for 50 more on the patio. Their bistro will feature food items inspired by native cuisines from around the world.

“The food will inspired by world flavors and will be mostly fusion type food, meaning a combination of different flavors,” Martin said. “We will use mostly local ingredients, local grown grass-fed beef, eggs, veggies, and fruits. We will try to also use mostly organic ingredients and herbs grown in our own garden. We plan to use only high quality ingredients, the foods our family eats.”
