If you think the best sightseeing in Northern California is the Golden Gate Bridge, it's time to grab the tent and start exploring. Camping in Northern California guarantees beautiful vistas at every turn, friendly locals, and a diverse array of camping get-ups to choose from. Cozy yurts and rustic cabins offer comfortable camping along the coast or deep in the mountains, and Northern California boasts an impressive array of private farms, vineyards, and open land. An endless patchwork of state parks and national forests let you sleep among the arboreal giants or enjoy tranquil lake camping. Whether you head north or south of the Bay Area, miles of stunning coastline offer some of the best bluff and beach camping opportunities in the country. Stunning Pacific sunsets will convince you to never leave the coast – until you remember the epic mountains waiting for you a few hours inland, that is.
