It's a small USFS campground -- only 10 sites and each has a nice stretch of trout stream in its backyard -- not big fish but fun to catch. And there's a beautiful mountain lake about a mile from it. I sure wish I had a canoe!
I hope your Fly-Fishing those waters and not using the bait and bobber method.

Yeah, but my wife's great nephew will be using spinning gear. He's 12 and has a tough enough time with that! But he has fun with it and gets excited with brookies. He's still bragging about the "whopper" he caught last year. It was about 10 inches then but has grown to 15 inches in his mind.

Well now, that's a young lads prerogative to use what he can and to have the bragging rights that go with it.

I finally got out to do some camping in Colorado and Wyoming in the last couple of weeks. We found a place to camp in Colorado where we were in a dispersed camping area, only to find out later that there was a USFS campground only a couple miles further up the road. In Wyoming we camped in the "city" park in Wheatland, where we've camped before. My kids enjoy camping there because they can play in the park just by taking a short walk from the campsite. We met some folks from Torrington, WY that were also camped there, and spent a bit of our time visiting with them while we were there. It was a nice, quiet trip, with lots of beautiful scenery along the way.

While I was coming home from my Wyoming/Colorado trip, I stopped in Sportsman's Warehouse in Grand Junction, where I saw a "Jumping Jack" trailer. If I were to buy a new trailer, I think it would be one of theirs. Basically, it's a utility trailer, but it's also a tent trailer. What I like about it is the simplicity. When it's set up, it's just a tent with a bed on each side of the main floor area. It also has a table inside, but that's about it. It doesn't have a bathroom, stove, refrigerator, or any of the other stuff that's common in new tent trailers. You use your existing camp equipment for those purposes. What you do have is a tent that can be set up quickly (and is off the ground), and you have a trailer that you can carry all your gear in or on top of. I may end up buying one of them as my camping trailer.

The Sportsman's Warehouse that closed was in Visalia, wasn't it? I never made it there, but there is one up in Rocklin (about 20 miles northeast of Sacramento), not to mention numerous other locations in the western U.S.

Edit: I did some checking online, and there was a store in Visalia that closed down, as well as another in Victorville that closed down. The Victorville store was only open a little over three months when they shut the doors. The only remaining store in California that I'm aware of is the one in Rocklin. Oh well, St. George, Utah isn't much further from me, and I probably get there almost as often as I do Sacramento.
