Two Happy Campers

Traveling with my young daughter of 7 years old was fun and easy with a Lost Campers camper van. Sami and I had everything we needed to camp in comfort and explore the Redwoods and coast line.

We camped in State Parks along the way. I booked our campsites ahead of time to avoid any hassle with trying to find a spot. All of the State Park campgrounds were great, however my favorite was definitely MacKerricher State Park, it was really beautiful and close to the ocean.

 Our California Campervan Trip Highlights

  • Pier  39 was a great afternoon excursion for some lunch and to watch the sea lions lounge about on the pier
  • We visited 2 aquariums during our adventure: The Ocean World Aquarium in Crescent City and Aquarium of the Bay in San Francisco. Both were really fun. Sami’s favorite moment: “Petting the sharks at Ocean World, it was so cool!”
  • The lighthouses were really fantastic, however, for Point Reyes lighthouse, be sure to plan accordingly as the access to  stairs and lower chamber of the lighthouse is only open Friday thru Monday. Battery Point offers another beautiful light house with amazing views as well

    Point Reyes National Seashore, California

  • Fern Canyon was a beautiful place to take a leisurely hike and the fact that Jurassic Park was filmed here made it all the more exciting for a little girl who has a huge imagination and a passion for dinosaurs! We followed up our visit to Fern Canyon with a screening of Jurassic World in Crescent City
  • Eureka- it is a very cool little city to take a stroll and do some shopping. I recommend the restaurant at  Lost Coast Brewery, the pub style food was delicious!
  • Driving the Pacific Coast Highway, the views are incredible
