Labor Day weekend offers great camping

Wednesday, Sept. 2, 2015 — The commemoration of Labor Day results in a long weekend as summer weather begins to fade. This extra day makes a camping trip worthwhile and because we already live in the mountains a multitude of campgrounds are located nearby.
    During the summer months campers from out of the area and even out of state travel to the Lassen and Plumas national forests on vacation. Yet locals don’t have to take vacation time to be refreshed. The Lassen forest encompasses 1,059,596 acres and has 36 developed campgrounds while the Plumas forest covers 1,171,183 acres with 48 developed campgrounds.
    Camping close to home has many benefits, according to Westwood resident Kippy Mayne. It’s an opportunity to step away from your daily routine and the drudgery of chores. It provides a chance to enjoy the beauty of the area in which we live. It does not require a lot of time, effort and planning.
