Winter Campgrounds not too chilly!

This is our first winter with our AS Sport 22' Bambi. We are wondering if you have any suggestions for California campgrounds in January and March where it doesn't snow or get below 55-60 degrees F during the day. Thanks!

Camping in the winter

I'd say Mendocino, Fort Bragg, Russian River. Another area that would be nice but not in the snow, is all along the 49er trail in the foothills of the Sierras.

if you want 55 degrees or above, you're going to have to stay "south" . . . like Pismo Beach and below

Low Desert and Coastal Areas Best Bet

The high desert can be cold and even have snow in the winter. In Joshua Tree the lowest elevation campgrounds are Cottonwood at 3000' and Indian Cove at 3200'. They can be nice in the winter, but keep an eye on the weather reports. A better bet for winter desert camping might be Anza-Borrego State Park. We really enjoy the Santa Ynez Valley in Santa Barbara County. There are a number of camping options there: Flying Flags RV Park in Buellton, Cachuma Lake County Park, and Los Padres National Forest campgrounds.
Happy camping in your new Bambi!

Only place to meet these criteria consistently would be on the coast south of LA IMO. Anything inland or further North could have colder days. Even Santa Barbara can get downright chilly during some winters.

How rigid are you about the temperature? If you want every day above 55, that will limit your location.

Which of the campgrounds do you go to with your airstream? Thanks!

FYI their link leads to Agua Caliente County Park in Julian, where the projected temperature range for the rest of the month is shown in the line graph at the bottom of this page:

http://www.accuweather.com/en/us/jul...eather/2154398

with a few daily high temps below 50 after Christmas. Note some overnight lows around freezing.

PS -- Their blog has more info about Agua Caliente here:

Winter Campgrounds not too chilly!

Malibu RV Park is a nice setup, don't believe the reviews about the staff (unless you have a rack of Marshals and bang your head late night, they are super nice). Off season prices are reasonable and the views and location are awesome.

Close to a lot of cool Beach Towns as well as cool Restaurants:

Old Place just a few minutes north of the RV park. Make reservations well in advance (like weeks).

Doheny State Beach is also nicely situated around nice beach towns and just south of Laguna Beach. Doheny is California's first state beach. Wood fires are allowed here (Malibu is propane only).

Hi Debbietaylor:

Do a computer search for Sweetwater Regional Park, San Diego, CA. That's about a 3hr drive from San Pedro. This is an older park that they have recently more than doubled it's size and they now have large full service sites & clean shower and restrooms as well.

This park is an easy drive to Balboa Park and the San Diego Zoo. San Diego is a great tourist town. Lots of live theater on the weekends. There is a kiosk on the sidewalk in front of Horton's Plaza (in San Diego) that sells heavily discounted tickets to whatever events that aren't already sold out.

I have no problem finding things to do. The Aircraft Carrier moored in the harbor fills a full day for me. One tip, get there early and head straight up to the bridge. The docents only allow a few tourists at a time on the bridge and you won't want to spend most of your day waiting in line to see it. I get right in because most take their time getting up there.

The Point Loma lighthouse is worth a few hours. However, your Pt. Fermin Light house in San Pedro is my favorite.

I also have a mobile home on Lake Havasu (Colorado River). I usually spend my winter holidays over there. Probably about 5+ hours from San Pedro pulling your trailer. Lots of trailer parks on both CA & AZ sides of the river. Quartzite was mentioned earlier and that's in the area. Lots of Snow Birds from Canada winter here. This is all in the desert which is usually sunny during the day, but everyone will tell you the desert can get cold (especially if the winds are blowing).

You should be "snug as a bug" in your trailer at either of these locations.

Have fun -- Don
