Local Campgrounds and Campsites

About a mile upstream of the county camp site the land is managed by the BLM and primitive camping is allowed without a permit or fee. There's a decent flat area at the confluence of Bear Creek and Cache Creek that is convenient for primitive car camping and popular for launching kayaks.

You can also try [WWW]KOA, which is camping for people who don't do camping. They tend to be mediocre, if you are used to camping at a decent state park for instance, but have facilities that many smaller state parks lack. In general though, they are to be avoided as they attract loud groups of annoying and sometimes shady people. KOA isn't for people who are looking for a destination, they are for people who need a place to stay immediately and don't want to spend the money on a hotel room.

You can find [WWW]tips to better your camping experience in a July 2010 blog post from Davis Life Magazine. There are many places in Northern California that provide adequate campgrounds and camping is an especially fun activity to engage in during the summer.

Another site for general camping tips is [WWW]ND Parks - Directory of Parks. It gives campground, gear and family camping recommendations. There's a good piece on [WWW]choosing choosing hiking shoes for men that I recommend.
