This guidebook is for tent campers who like quiet, scenic, and serene campsites.

It will guide you to the quietest, most beautiful, most secure, and best managed campgrounds along the coast, in the Sierra Nevada, and in the Cascade Range of Northern CA. Includes details on facilities, reservations, fees, restrictions, and an accurate map to get you there.
