  1. Those campgrounds all seem really cool. Are there any rules to be aware of in California that someone from out of state might not know? Fire bans? I had a friend tell me that some campsites don’t allow you to scavenge for wood? Anyone from out of state could be surprised by the rules which could affect their experience.
