Refugio State Beach, May 23-26

At Refugio State Beach, 22 miles west of Santa Barbara, fan and date palms decorate a crescent-shaped curve of sand. This is a quiet place to build sand castles, surf, dive, stroll the trails, watch wildlife, pitch a tent, and cast a fishing pole.

Mono Hot Springs, June 19-26

Mono Hot Springs Campground sits above Kaiser Pass in the High Sierra, on the South Fork of the San Joaquin River in an area known for its hot mineral baths.

The campground is at an elevation of 6,700 feet. It is a great base for exploring the nearby Ansel Adams and John Muir Wilderness areas or for simply relaxing and enjoying the scenery.

There are three natural hot springs a short walk from our campsite. Take a dip in the refreshing San Joaquin river which runs through our camp site. Doris Lake is a short walk away and is lots of fun to swim in. There are many opportunities for fishing in the nearby river and lakes.
