Camping in Northern CA

Camping in Northern CA

By Julie Cleek

Camping in Northern California has become one of the most popular areas to bring your RV, family, and pets to camp.

A few exceptional places I would like to highlight are Fort Bragg, CA, Tahoe National Forest, and Dillon’s Beach.

Westport Beach


Fort Bragg,CA

Fort Bragg has many different camping options, but a great place to choose is Westport Beach RV Park and Campground. This park is located in Mendocino County and it offers Cottages, cabins, full hookup RV sites, and tent camping as well. It has a 4.4-star overall rating with amenities such as volleyball and horseshoe courts, a kids playground, and private beach. The average price for an RV site is only $65 per night and it is only 19 miles from the famous Glass Beach attraction.




Meeks Bay


Lake Tahoe

The Tahoe National Forest is one of the most beautiful places in CA. Lake Tahoe is a large freshwater lake in Northern California that is home to winter sports, summer outdoor recreation, and scenery enjoyed throughout the year. Meeks Bay Resort and Marina Campground offers full RV hookups and tent sites with waterfront sites so popular that many are reserved more than a year in advance. The average RV site cost depends on the season and ranges from $45-65 per night. The resort is proud of its overall star rating of 4.1. 




Dillon’s Beach

A great place to camp on Dillon’s Beach is Lawson’s Landing RV Park. Lawson’s Landing is a Year-Round boating and fishing resort and is situated at the mouth of Tomales Bay, California which is 50 miles north of San Francisco. They also have a 4.1 overall star rating and their campsites range from $45-60 per night. To the west of the campground, they offer over 1 mile of ocean beach with clamming, fishing, boat launching, and boat rentals. In addition, they also offer Tomales Dunes which are some of the last mobile dune systems left along the California coast.

Nevada County, a Traveler’s Paradise!

Nevada County, a Traveler’s Paradise!


Who knew that a day trip from Nevada County to one of the 7 wonders of the world could be so fun?  My family and I decided to hop in the car and head to Lake Tahoe for a day trip.  In less than an hour from Grass Valley, California you can be to Lake Tahoe.

Lake Tahoe offers hundreds of options, from boating to hiking, skiing and mountain biking, kayaking, sun bathing, scintillating diving, gambling, shopping and more.  As the afternoon clouds blanket the sky, the true beauty of this lake and the Lake Tahoe area unfolds before my eyes.  While my kids climb rocks and take pictures, the wind is rustling in the trees.  Utter relaxation and peace roll over me.  And to think, this amazing outdoor playground is so close to Grass Valley and Nevada City!

Living so close to Lake Tahoe truly is a gift.

Nevada County offers so many affordable options for Real Estate and is in such a fantastic location, you just really can’t go wrong. With Lake Tahoe right up the road, Sacramento and San Francisco a hop, skip and a jump away, this really is a commuter’s paradise. We have it all! The beauty of the foothills, proximity to some of the world’s most traveled to destinations, and affordability. Grass Valley Real Estate and Nevada City Real Estate are where it’s at!

If you would like a personal tour of any of the available properties that Grass Valley, Nevada City, Penn Valley and the surrounding areas have to offer, please don’t hesitate to contact us! We’re a team so there is nearly always someone available to show off this jewel of the foothills! And if we look a little sun-kissed, well, we probably just got home from a boat ride on Lake Tahoe.
