CAMP-CALIFORNIA, THE CAMPER’S GUIDE TO CALIFORNIA, IS NOW AVAILABLE BOTH IN PRINT AND APP FRIENDLY FORMATS
AUBURN, Calif., March 14, 2014 — Camp-California, the Camper’s Guide to California, which lists nearly 700 public and privately owned campgrounds across the Golden State, is now available for free both in print and digital formats.
There are three ways to access the Guide; View it online at Camp-California.com; download it from the iTunes or Google Play stores; and request or pick up a print copy.
“It’s an app friendly, digital magazine,” said Susanne White, advertising manager for the California Association of RV Parks & Campgrounds, which produces the guide.
“This camping and travel planning guide will live in your newsstand on your device if you want it to,” White said. “You can flip through the magazine, and while connected to a network, access more content than the 80-page print version of the directory can hold.”
The digital version of the guide has links to a wealth of travel information as well videos of campgrounds and products or services of interest to camping enthusiasts.
The best part about the digital version is that you do not have to be connected. Just like the print version, you can flip through the pages at any time.
Now it is simply a matter of choice. Find your perfect camping spot with either your favorite device or the traditional printed guide.
“The guide is a complete reference in and of itself,” White said. “It has locator maps so you can find the campground you’re looking for when you don’t have access to GPS or data. The guide provides all of the information you need, including descriptions of the parks.”
The cover of the camping guide also has a QR code that camping enthusiasts can scan for a chance to enter a sweepstakes for $1,000 worth of free camping. The sweepstakes winner will be announced in December and will be featured in the 2015 edition of the camping guide.
White said 200,000 print versions of the camping guide are being distributed to consumers free of charge through California Welcome Centers and Camping World stores throughout California as well as campgrounds, RV parks and resorts that are affiliated with California Association of RV Parks & Campgrounds.
Anderson’s Brochure Service is also distributing the guide at camping and RV shows across the Midwest and East Coast.
Camp-California, the Camper’s Guide to California is a four-color glossy magazine that lists more than campgrounds and RV resorts throughout the Golden State. It is considered a critical travel planning resource for camping and RVing enthusiasts with information not only on RV and tent sites, but a wide variety of rental accommodations, including tent cabins, yurts, teepees, covered wagons and even motels.
It nicely complements Camp-California.com, the travel planning website of the California Association of RV Parks & Campgrounds, which the association has improved in recent years with more detailed travel planning sections, including a section that lists campgrounds, RV parks and resorts that can accommodate RVs over 40 feet in length.
Additional sections provide information on driver’s license requirements and road restrictions involving 40-foot plus RVs.

WHITEWATER RAFTING TOURS ARE ALREADY UNDERWAY IN THE SIERRA
AS WARM WEATHER CREATES AN EARLY SPRING WITH DAFFODILS
AND WILDFLOWERS IN BLOOM
Campgrounds throughout the Mother Lode Country offer furnished cabins, cottages and tents for unique spring getaways in scenic, natural settings. Local attractions include gold mines, museums and historic buildings as well as wine tasting, mountain biking and white water rafting tours
AUBURN, Calif., March 25, 2014 — White water rafting tours have already begun in the historic Mother Lode Country as warm weather prompts an early Sierra snowmelt.
The warm weather has also accelerated the bloom times for the 300,000 plus daffodils at Daffodil Hill, prompting tourism officials to urge wildflower enthusiasts to come this week for the best color displays.
Indeed, even though California has had one of the driest winters in history, you can still enjoy California poppies and other spring wildflowers by driving along historic Highway 49 and other roads that wind their way from the Central Valley into the oak and pine covered Sierra foothills.
“It’s really beautiful here right now,” said Debbie Sipe, executive director of the California Association of RV Parks & Campgrounds, which hosts Camp-California.com, the popular travel planning website. “You can see wildflowers in many areas along roadways, fields and hillsides.The poppies and lupine are my personal favorites.”
Many campgrounds throughout the Mother Lode Country also offer furnished tents, cabins and cottages for visitors seeking unique spring getaway in a scenic, natural setting while they visit the region’s gold mines and other historic sites and attractions. “You don’t have to have a tent or RV to be close to nature in the Sierra because campgrounds are increasingly providing rental accommodations,” Sipe said.
