is about how to make your own little oasis at the campground. Making family trips stylish and comfortable. I encourage you to camp in gourmet comfort even if you have kids. I invite you tell your stories and ask your questions. I will also keep you informed on Northern California events.
WHAT CLOTHES TO BRING
For a two night camp trip in summer it should look something like this minimally
3 Pairs underwear
2 Short sleeve shirts
2 Pants: 1 jeans 1 fleece or sweat pant style
1 Pair of shorts
1 Tank top
2 Long sleeve shirts: one can be for sleeping
1 Beach towel
1 Silky pants for sleeping (water wicking/bike or smooth exercise type work best so your legs don’t stick to your covers and you can put second layer soft pants over then in the morning)
1 Sandals, water shoes or flip flops for beach or shower
1 Ugg type boots or lined clogs for easy on off around campsite
1 Sweat shirt/fleece with hood
1 Light jacket (just in case)
1 Skirt or camp dress opt.
1 Bandanna & sun hat
1 Bath towel, hand towel & washrag
1 Pair good of comfortable walking/hiking shoes
1 pair of gloves for cold or handling wood
Some sites have laundry facilities if that matters to you THEN take quarters and soap of your choosing they will probably sell some there as well.

Even though this park gets a 10 rating from most of the camping books, many campsites are on slops that are rocky or are small. I would rate this place a 5 or a 10 depending on where you’re parking your tent. I love the beach access at this park and a few nice sites sit facing the water. You pay extra for that though and no dogs on beach here, not even on leash. However early rise and sunset ball throw worked for us just fine. The beach is BEAUTIFUL and it’s the beach that makes this campground great. If you want to book a good site you will need to be on the ball and …
Last night my daughter and I packed our cloths for our five day camping trip coming up next week. I washed everything is unscented soap and focused on packing old cloths. Adrienne who is five loves this activity. I like packing cloth several days before our trip so I have time to wash anything that needs to be washed and because I know the days leading up to such a big trip will be busy with cooking/freezing food, shopping, planning and pulling it all together.
Here are a few links to help you get started knowing what to pack for a week long trip:
Cloths: I like clean cloths so a long trip means packing more, washing a few things or I check to see if they have a laundry facility. BRING CHANGE if they do. Wash all your cloths in scent free detergent so your not attracting mosquito's.
