RVing Northern California

RVing Northern California

When most people come to Yosemite National Park they head for the Yosemite Valley and marvel at the granite cliffs that loom over the merced Valley and have taken the familiar names of El Capitan and Half Dome. They attempt to fit America’s highest waterfalls pouring off the surrounding cliffs into a single frame of their cameras. This is sufficient for most travelers, however RVing Northern California has so much more to offer. Fortunately for RVers, whether you are setting up base camp in an RV park or hopscotching from campground to campground, there are more than two dozen Good Sam RV parks sprinkled across the region to plan your adventures in Yosemite. The Map View on Good Sam Camping makes it a snap to plan your trip and call an audible or two once you arrive. One of the best parts about RVing Northern California is the east High Country. It rises to elevations over 13,000 feet. RV parks along Route 395 in Bishop and Mammoth Lakes and Bridgeport serve up easy access to these... [Read more...]

Planning Our 2014 Travels With the Good Sam App!

To continue with my post from February 16, 2014 on planning our major camping trip for 2014, I write today to discuss a new tool in my planning: my Good Sam Camping iPhone app. I downloaded it a few days ago to locate a campground for our trip. You may recall that our plan is to “bag” four fourteeners (Colorado Peaks rising 14,000+ feet above sea level) on our trip this summer. Mounts Democrat, Cameron, Lincoln and Bross can be climbed, one after the other, in one day.  While it takes some strength and determination to do it, the journey is only about eight miles round trip with an elevation gain of 2,200 feet. To begin, I simply searched for, then downloaded the Good Sam app, at no charge, from the App Store on my iPhone. This app is also available for Android users for your Android phone. It took only a minute to download and proved simple to use. Knowing the names of the mountains but not where they were located in Colorado, I googled the first mountain we would climb, Mt. Democrat,... [Read more...]

Congrats to Anvil Campground for 60 Years Serving RVers

Anvil Campground celebrated 60 years of making great memories for RV travelers during a fun-filled pig roast on March 1 at the Williamsburg, Virginia, RV Park. Guests and staff gathered at the 60 for 60 party to enjoy succulent roasted pork and delicious cake, and to reflect on six decades of fun and family togetherness at the Good Sam Park, which boasts an impressive 9.5/9.5*/8.5 rating in the Good Sam RV Travel Guide and Campground Directory. On hand were members of the Jump family, who founded the campground in 1954 and own it to this day. Highlights of the event included pork roasting on an open barbecue, comments and recognition from members of the Jump family, and delicious cakes recognizing the milestone. There was even a cake baked in the shape of an anvil! Join us in wishing for 60 more years of great guest experiences at Anvil Campground, located close to Colonial Williamsburg and other area attractions. The Jump family boasts historic ties to the development of Colonial Williamsburg,... [Read more...]
