The California Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (CalARVC) has published the 2012 edition of Camp-California! The Camper’s Guide to California.

The free, four-color glossy magazine is a four-time winner of ARVC’s Best Directory Award in the large state category and remains a leading source of California specific information on public as well as private parks, according to a news release.

“We think this is our best directory yet,” said Debbie Sipe, executive director of CalARVC, which operates Camp-California.com and publishes the print directory.

The print directory includes listings of nearly 800 privately owned campgrounds as well as campgrounds in county, state and national parks. The guide also includes regional locator maps that feature multiple campgrounds on the same page allowing readers to see where the campgrounds are located in relation to places they might like to visit.

Informational grids are provided that indicate if the campground is pet friendly, big rig friendly or if it offers pull-through sites, tent sites, rental accommodations, swimming pools, showers, hot tubs or spas, playgrounds, convenience stores and laundry service. The informational grid also indicates if the park charges a fee for Wi-Fi service and if rental accommodations are also available.

Campground listings include information on fun things to see and do nearby, such as fishing, kayaking, hiking, horseback riding and wine tasting. QR codes are included with several park listings. The directory also includes travel-planning calendars that include detailed information on activities and special events throughout the state.

CALARVC hired Advanced Media Marketing Group (AMMG) to produce the 2012 directory, which can be picked up at most campgrounds that are affiliated with the CalARVC as well as California Welcome Centers, Camping World and Bass Pro Shop stores throughout California. It can also be ordered online through www.Camp-California.com. However, there is a small fee to cover the cost of postage.
