Hello fellow campers and Airstreamers.
We are presently on our first attempt at avoiding the northern winter travelling just north of San Francisco in Santa Rosa to visit a few wineries.
When we leave here we would like to not have to camp in an RV "cramp",and head for somewhere south where we can feel comfortable with our 3 dogs.
State parks in California are out of the question because they are not allowed on trails, and we never leave them alone in the trailer.
We don't like large cities.
Can anyone out there suggest a route that would slowly get us down to the desert area east of LA?, and get us into more peaceful camping?
We don't mind rv spots that have some room. Oregon is so great for that type of camping. Anything like that in southern cal?


George

There is a nice state campground in Pismo, named Northbeach. The beach there is very dog friendly, and there are lots of hiking trails close by that are also dog friendly. Bob Jones trail in Avila is one of them.
Best part is you can walk right out to the beach from the campground.
You can check the local trails here:

Thanks for that. Looked it up and it looks interesting. Do you think that reservations would be necessary at this time of year?

This time of year it's first come first serve unfortunately.
Reservations start May 15, and it sells out quick. But if you show up during the week during the winter you shouldn't have a problem.
There is also a designated dog beach in Avila just a few miles too.

We are next door at Pismo Coast Village. Walked through the state campground this afternoon. Loads of spaces available. Some are very wet due to the heavy rain last week, but many are OK.

I would expect it will start filling up Christmas Day.

Lytle Creek, CA intersection of I15 & I215

CA: Boondocker Have We Got a Deal For You
by Lytle Creek Firing Line - Lytle Creek, California
(Position in the San Bernardino National Forest)

Lytle Creek Firing Line, Lytle Creek California

Lytle Creek Firing Line, Inc. has a caretaking opening for RVing hosts. This hosting position is at our remote day use firing range.

We are looking for the proper individual or couple who is wanting a southern California RVing location. The property is a secluded fee for use area, located in the chaparral covered northern San Bernardino National Forest.

We are conveniently located close to I-15/215, and 210 freeways. Rancho Cucamonga and San Bernardino are easily accessed.

The facility is located at the 4,400 elevation in the shadow of Mt. Baldy, highest peak in the San Gabriel Mountain range, and the Sheep Mountain Wilderness Area, in the Lytle Creek Canyon drainage. The adjoining communities are still rural, however a large mall and other amenities are a half hour drive. Low humidity, without extreme temperatures, makes for a comfortable environment the majority of the year.

This is a controlled use area. Activities in a developing controlled shooting range include the use of firearms and archery equipment from designated locations at designated targets. A tolerance of firearms is expected.

The firing range is open seven days a week. The hosts are expected to maintain a presence on the property after hours, merely as a deterrent to unauthorized entry.

The applicants should be mature and responsible individuals or couples who are self sufficient, reliable, dedicated to a commitment, and independent. The facility is active from 08:00 to 4:00 in the afternoon, with light traffic on the paved road after hours.

Host positions are seasonal.

Applicants are expected to have a clean, self-contained RV, and should be able to provide proof of insurance and current registration. A tow behind vehicle is a plus. The host area is separated from the shooting area by approximately 70 yards. Currently, conditions are primitive, boondocking experience is preferred. Ten
hours per week, per person, twenty hours per couple covers the cost of weekly sanitation service, potable water deliveries, as well as an alternative power source, propane.

Pets are acceptable, as long as shots are current and they are kept under control.

Local activities include hiking, fishing, hunting, bird watching, stargazing, 4-wheeling, wildlife viewing, mountain biking, gold mining and panning, and peace and quiet.

This could be a fine situation for active retirees who enjoy the seclusion of the outdoors and enjoy people in moderation.


Applications accepted until the position is filled.

Call or email Greg for an application and to schedule an interview. Phone: 909-438-0196. E-mail: lytlecreekfiringline@gmail.com

It's called Silver Strand State Beach and it is not free, but still a great deal
