As someone who was born and raised in California, I’ve spent a good chunk of my life exploring The Golden State and some of my favorite memories include camping in some of the world’s prettiest campgrounds.
We’ve camped in Joshua Tree at least ten times in the last five years and it definitely deserves a spot on this list.
You’ll either be surrounded by Redwoods at Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park or watching the sunset over the Pacific Ocean from your tent at Kirk Creek.
This park is situated along the breathtaking Avenue of the Giants in Northern California and has over 17,000 acres of old-growth coast redwoods.
With miles of trails, Palomar Mountain State Park includes over 1,800 acres of forest that’s ideal for hiking and camping.
With its towering granite cliffs, majestic waterfalls, and valleys, Yosemite offers a breathtaking backdrop for your camping adventure.
This park is a captivating desert wonderland, boasting dramatic sand dunes, vast salt flats, rugged mountains, and otherworldly rock formations.
