DD has been in AYSO all fall. Just got a call from the coach and she will have a one week bye before playoffs start so........ we get to go camping for Veteran's Day.
Since we are very late in making reservations I need some help on where to go. First of all we live in Bakersfield, CA. Here is the criteria: prefer hook ups at least electric, within 3 hours from home or 200 miles, would like to hike or bike with the kids, warmer weather if possible, and we do not fish.
Try for one without hookups & is first come/first served, Red Rock Canyon State Park. "Miles of trails meander through the dramatic landscape of the park, and hiking is an intimate way to experience the desert. Use desert safety precautions- bring twice as much water as you think you need, and layered clothing for sudden fluctuations in temperature. The park is 25 miles northeast of Mojave on Highway 14, near Cantil. Go west 1/4 mile on Abbott Drive. Signage indicating the turnoff is clearly visible on Highway 14." Ditto & one with Pics

Wind Wolves Preserve. This one is not in the guidebooks and the web page is not very informative (see quoted text below), but a quick call to them should answer your questions.
