CARP Camping Trip January 2015 – Moved

Notice  the location of the Camp-a-Long has been changed

CARP Camp-a-Long January 16-18, 2015

As the Oceano Campground is closed for renovation, we have located an excellent campground to use.  The Little Basin Campground is located near Big Basin about 20 miles north of Santa Cruz. From Fresno it’s a 178 mile 3 hour drive.

Little Basin Campground has both tent sites and cabins. Many of the tent sites can accommodate an RV or trailer. There is only one RV site with electrical hookup. There are community restrooms and hot showers.

Campsite Cost/Details:

  • All sites are a maximum of 2 vehicles and 8 people.
  • Tent Sites are $35.00 a night.
  • Cabins are $85.00 a night and sleep from 4 to 12.
  • Sorry, no pets allowed

If you are planning on attending the trip please use the online signup form ASAP so we can coordinate the trip and campsites.

Note: While a CARP Camp-a-Long is a club sponsored event, attendees are responsible for their own food, supplies and transportation.

As the weather warms up it’s getting close to time for trips to the Sierra Nevada’s to go camping. One of the most important things to take with you when you go camping in the forest is a Campfire Permit. While permits may not be required in established campsites, it is always a good idea to have one so you know the rules of open flames in the forest. Besides, you never know if your favorite campsite will be full and you need to resort to dispersed camping.

To make it easier to educate folks and allow us an easy method to obtain campfire permits the California Wildland Fire Coordinating group (CWCG) PreventWildfireCA.org website has an online resourse to obtain a Campfire Permit.

At http://www.preventwildfireca.org/Permits/ you will watch a 2-1/2 minute video, take a short test and be able to download and print a valid Campfire Permit.
