With wildflower season right around the corner, maybe you’re already making plans for a spring road trip. The free 2019 Camp-California guide can help. It highlights RV, camping and cabin sites in California and Nevada, and adds road-trip ideas and offbeat places to go.

The deal: The 92-page guide says it covers everything from “primitive to plus,” including a map showing where sites are and a grid showing the amenities. The guide lists privately owned parks and campgrounds owned as well as those operated by states and counties.

Maybe you want to stay in a cottage at the historic Rancho Oso Guest Ranch & Stables in Santa Barbara or grab an RV site at Sounds of the Sea on the north coast, perfect for visiting Cannonball Beach and the redwoods.

You can download the guide, request a printed copy ($5 by mail) or find a location where you can pick one up. There’s even a flipbook edition you can page through online.

When: The guide is available indefinitely.

Details: About those offbeat destinations: In the guide, you’ll find a story about 13 caving destinations to try, from narrow lava tubes in Northern California to “moaning” caves in Gold Country.
