New member from California
This is my first travel trailer and found this forum to be very useful in answering the many questions I had.

This year we will mostly camp on the weekends in Northern California so any recommendations would be great.:signhavefun:

Welcome to the forum. I'm also in Northern California and got our first TT in January. We've been to Lake Hensley and Lake Chabot with our trailer and had a blast at both - especially Lake Chabot (Anthony Chabot Campground).

Welcome to FRF, from a fellow NorCaler!

what type of camping do you prefer? state parks/dry camping or private parks like KOA?
and what area of NorCal would you like to camp at? Sierras or coastline?

If you are heading to the real North... along the coast, north of Sacramento, head over to Brookings Oregon. Harris Beach campground has got to be the best and most affordable camp ground we have ever been to. Having visited every Memorial Day and Laborday for the last 6 years, it is a much anticipated visit everytime.

Thanks for the warm welcome. Most of the time we would enjoy camping with hookups and we love camping in the woods. Coast camping is nice if the sites are sheltered from the wind. Dry camping seems reasonable if don't need the AC.
I remember camping at Brookings as a child and remember it being quite beautiful. We will probably venture there after the slide is removed on 101 in Garberville. Right now we have booked weekends for Casini Ranch, Leggitt,and Cloverdale. Looking forward to more recommendations because I have a few more weekends open this year.
