Here are some ideas, suggestions of what you and your family enjoy might help to get others: Be sure and check if various campsites, etc. are open for Veteran's Day... many of the public ones close after Oct 1.
Columbia State Park
(California) in the foothills has lots of activities. I do know, however, that in this off season there aren't many RV parks open near there you will need to do a search. There is one that is close we have stayed at but the name escapes me. A google search would probably give you some ideas. Here is the link for the Park:
Columbia California - Columbia State Historic Park - Gold Rush Country
Marshall Gold Discovery State Park
(California) in the foothills in Coloma, California is also interesting. If the weather is cold or rainy, it might not be as interesting as the rest of the time as one would walk to and from various buildings and displays outside. They do not
have camping at this park. Not sure what is nearby that is open in winter. Here is a link:
Marshall Gold Discovery SHP
has lots of interesting places to visit. The Cal Expo has a nice RV park, but is a drive from many of the "tourist" sites. Old Town Sacramento is fun, the Train Museum in old town Sacramento is awesome if you haven't been, as are the tours of the Governor's Mansion, the state capitol, the state Indian Museum, as well as art museums.
has great stuff as well! Good camping at Laguna Seca and commerical RV parks. If you have a small rig they have a wonderful campground in the center of the city at Memorial Park. But nothing longer than maybe 22 feet... however there are some nice state parks down the coast a bit that are wonderful. Here is a link to the Veteran's Memorial Park in Monterey, CA: http://www.monterey.org/rec/vetspark.html

near Sonoma along the Russian River is also very nice. We attended a Airstream Rally there and had a great time. Here is there website: Casini Ranch :: Family camping on the Russian River in California
off of I-80 has nice camping. Good place to get away from it all. Lots of oak trees so the leaves will be falling in November!
Good luck in finding a great get away!
