After remaining under lockdown for months, tourist places all over are gradually reopening with new safety measures, given the COVID-19 pandemic. In the last few weeks, we saw a number of countries and states lifting their order restrictions and California was one of them. This American state has already opened its restaurants and beaches for the public and from today, they have reopened campsites in seven of the state’s 58 counties.

As of now, 1667 campsites at 28 state parks throughout California are available for booking. These camping sites include San Onofre State Beach in San Diego and Leo Carrillo State Park in Los Angeles. Those willing to camp at a wooded destination, they can go ahead and book Sugar Pine Point State Beach on Lake Tahoe and Big Basin Redwoods State Park in Santa Cruz.

A spokesperson from the California Parks Department said, “The State of California recognizes the benefits of the outdoors during this challenging time of COVID-19.” The department is ready with all the necessary safety measures in accordance with state and county guidelines.

When it comes to restrictions, the RV-friendly campsites at state parks will function with limited capacity until June 21. This means that only 50 percent of sites will be available for camping. But after June 21, the state will again take decisions on whether to continue operating as such, or change a few things.

Social distancing is important so not more than 10 people can gather at one place. There no group campsites allowed. Maintaining a six feet distance from one another is one thing that every traveller will have to follow. Face masks are another must have!

Also for the time being, there won’t be any guided tours or indoor facilities such as museums and visitors centers will be allowed.
