The Golden State provides a spectacular backdrop for some of the most scenic and diverse campgrounds in the country, from desert camping in Death Valley to glacier camping in the Sierras. But do you know which campgrounds offer the most privacy? Which are the best for first-time campers? Charles Patterson has traversed the entire region, from the Mexican border to coastal Malibu to the rugged Sierras, and compiled the most up-to-date research to steer you to the perfect spot

Best Tent Camping: Southern California presents 50 private, state park, and state and national forest campgrounds, organized into four distinct regions.

Whether you seek a quiet campground near a fish-filled stream or a family campground with all the amenities, grab Best Tent Camping: Southern California. It's a book for tent campers who like quiet, scenic, and serene campsites. This guide is a keeper.

About the Author

Charles Patterson, a Southern California native, daydreams about his next outdoor adventure every time he finds himself indoors, bound by some professional or otherwise mundane obligation. Naturally, he relishes the opportunity to explore further, pushing himself to greater lengths than most would tolerate. Writing Mountain Bike! Los Angeles County: A Wide-Grin Ride Guide forced Charles to spend many hours in the sticks, often alone, occasionally pondering the size of local mountain lion populations. It was a true adventure, and getting to write about it afterward and share his love for the outdoors was a blessing. Revising Best Tent Camping: Southern California is a natural progression because Charles's banged-up body certainly can't tolerate two-wheeled pursuits forever, and tent camping is an activity he'll still be able to enjoy after his first walker, cane, or wheelchair purchase.
