A camping forum for VW bus and camper owners.
Say goodbye to Bothe-Napa
As the saying goes, "I can't believe we still have to protest this crap".
Once again, parks in California are on the chopping block. This includes Bothe Napa, where the Gold Country Campers hold their Thanksgiving campout, and several others that we have camped in with Big Blue.
If you are so inclined, take a moment to send a letter of opposition at this website:
I can't believe they want to close 25% of the parks that's insanity! When I lived in California, I was 15 to 20 min to the entrance of Yosemite, and many of the smaller surrounding towns economy was derived from tourism to the park. This would have a devastating effect on the local economies that surround these parks! Not to mention it's just stupid...
I'll keep my fingers crossed that they'll be spared once again!
Don't worry! We would send you off to much cooler "insider-only" campgrounds. The State campgrounds tend to be "amateur hour " affairs with sites close together sporting lotsa bright Coleman lanterns.
Joe's right. Fear not - there are plenty of county parks and private parks to camp at around here. Bothe Napa is nice and will certainly be missed should it close, but the show goes on. They can't keep a good camper down.
If your plans could include flying into SoCal, consider renting from VWSurfari. They are good folks and friends of the Family: http://www.vwsurfari.com/
Any update on the situation with the parks?
I see The Dead is helping:
WestyWoman - you hear any inside info? Should we be fighting?
