Camping is an escape from the busyness of our lives where we can disconnect from technology and reconnect with Mother Nature. To make sure you get to experience the summer camping trip of your dreams, we’ve asked S.B.S.’s Jodi Cromar, a long-time camper who frequents parks across the state with her family, her best tips for your next adventure:
What are some of your favorite camping spots in California?
 “Ventura County Parks and Beaches along with Flying Flags in the Santa Ynez Valley”
Do you have any favorite camping accessories you can’t live without? 
“A BBQ and firewood are must-haves for any camping trip.”
Best tip for new campers? 
“Rent a trailer or RV before purchasing one to see if it’s for you or not. An RV is a substantial investment for something that’s seldom used. Plus they require a lot of maintenance. But if you love the outdoors, nothing beats owning your own RV.”
Favorite activities to do while camping?
“Fishing, sitting around the camp fire, barbequing, playing catch with the football, playing cornhole, lots of card games, and walking our dogs on the beach.”
What is your camping meal of choice?
“Hamburgers and hotdogs of course, but believe it or not, as a tradition we make jambalaya!”
