Posts Tagged ‘camp sites’ has developed a new camping trip planner tool to connect nature lovers with the great outdoors. Users can plan a road trip by plotting their route on a map and overlaying it with all nearby state, federal and private campgrounds in the directory. Campgrounds can be filtered by location, facilities, nearby activities and other criteria. Within the camping planning tool, users can check the availability of camp sites, select and add them to their planned route, and make reservations via a link to sister media property, Users can print their trip itinerary and driving directions as well as share their trip details with friends and family via Facebook and Twitter.

Campers wanting to go off the beaten path or catch some wildlife in action this summer can take advantage of a new list of “Hidden Gems” State campgrounds published in early summer.


The sight of beautiful Don Pedro Lake, California’s fifth-largest man-made reservoir, set in the golden foothills studded with oak and pine trees, is something that captivates your heart and pioneering spirit. One glimpse of its blue waters nestled in the ages-old Tuolumne River canyon likely will remain with you forever.

Located off Highway 120 via road J59 that heads toward La Grange, visitors will find 172 camp sites and 91 RV sites at Fleming Meadows. The adjacent Blue Oaks Campground boasts 34 trailer sites and 161 campsites. Campers can choose their own site online before departing for an outdoor adventure.

Moccasin Point is farther along Highway 120, but it takes another 30 miles to get there. Located 60 miles east of Yomemite, this smaller venue has 78 tent sites and 18 full hookup sites for RVs, and its canyon walls and higher elevation give guests more of a Sierra feeling.

With the opening next month of St. Peters’ 370 Lakeside Park, the city is getting closer to realizing its goals for the entire project.

One of the city’s goals is to operate a successful RV park. When the park opens, 50 campsites for recreational vehicles will be available. All of the sites are equipped with water, sanitary and electrical hookups. Each RV site has its own picnic table. Fees for RVs are between $35 and $40 daily. Some RV reservations require a three-night minimum stay. Campers can stay no longer than two weeks at any one site and a maximum of 60 days in the park.

RV pull-through sites are 18-feet by 72-feet and back-in sites are 18-by-55. The sites are equipped with 50-amp service. To reserve a campsite call 636-387-LAKE (5253). Campers receive free Wi-Fi service, and there will be round-the-clock on-site security.

St. Peters is trying to tie the park in with one of its most popular facilities; RV campers will be offered resident rates at the St. Peters Rec-Plex when they stay at the park.  Mid Rivers Mall also will be a popular attraction for RV campers. The mall and Rec-Plex are both about 10 minutes from the park.

Besides the RV sites, 10 other camp sites will be available after the grand opening. The park  is scheduled to open at 4 p.m. May 19.
