I've looked at that one in the past, although it's probably too far off I-5 for my current plans. I'm surprised to hear Whiskeytown is closed. Is that because of the Carr fire?

From what I can tell online, Sycamore Grove appears to be closed also. Anyone know?

Sycamore Grove is closed. You might try one of the state park campgrounds - they aren't affected.

It is our favorite. Dry camping only. Questionable restrooms, no dump.


There is something special about camping in an RV.

Yes, the entrance to the boat launch, dump, and campground were blocked off with caution tape.

Wow, your favorite! That's quite a strong recommendation! Thank you :-)

Everyone is different. We like to be remote. Often that means minimal facilities. My coworker swears by KOAs and always brings up the hookups for his Class A.

We were passing through last week and spent the night at JGW RV Park. There were lots of spaces available.

Love JGW. We go there every year for a few nights. Bike ride the Sac River Trail. Probably won't be going this year unless the area around the trail is cleaned up some.

We've stayed at Redding RV Park a couple of times, at the intersection of 299 and I-5 and also the Win-river casino "campground" farther into town.

I have to wonder how many RVs made it out of the Camp Fire and are using nearby CGs? Has the Carr fire in July just west of Redding impacted availability in nearby CGs?

The loss of structures and impact on local environment is one thing but the loss of life is very sad.

For days and days the news media broadcast every minute detail of the "Camp Fire". Then, all of a sudden it all just stopped, not a word on the progress, the after math, nothing.
Typical of what you get from the major news networks everywhere. Doesn't matter if it's a severe hurricanes, flooding, earthquakes, wildfires, etc., the coverage abruptly stops and there's never any followup and it's back to the politics of the days pdq. You never hear about the aftermath and struggles of individuals, towns and areas trying to get their lives back together and move forward.
