California has more than 100 significant waterfalls, many of which are close to campgrounds and easily accessible on foot 

 

 

AUBURN, Calif., January 2016 — Mountain streams and waterfalls are coming back to life across California after four years of drought, thanks to a series of powerful El Nino storms. 

 

“These are best storms we’ve seen in years,” said Debbie Sipe, executive director of the California Association of RV Parks & Campgrounds, which hosts Camp-California.com, a travel planning website featuring more than 300 campgrounds. 

 

And while the wet winter weather is good news for California’s ski resorts, it’s also good news for campgrounds, many of which are located close to scenic waterfalls that will be at their peak in spring and early summer.

AUBURN, Calif., January 2016 — Wildflowers will soon be blooming in California State Parks, thanks to the dousing by several El Niño storms.

SODA SPRINGS, Calif., Dec. 7, 2015 — Despite early Sierra snows and forecasts calling for a wet El Niño winter, Cisco Grove Campground isn’t yet seeing a surge in reservations by winter sports enthusiasts.

rolling in. 

 

“Once we get major snow, we open up a snow park with sledding and tubing,” said Cisco Grove owner Debbie Martin, adding that her 5,800-foot park, which typically receives five to 12 feet of snow in a good year, is also popular with snowmobile enthusiasts who enjoy exploring ATV trails and skiers who enjoy Lake Tahoe area resorts. Dog sledding tours are also available in the area, she said.
