O: Spring Family Car Camp in Vasquez Rocks This is a unique opportunity to spend the night in the land of Star Trek and the Flintstones, and many other movies. The wildflowers are blooming, Earth Day is coming, so let's take the kids car camping and celebrate nature! Pack the camping gear and come with us to Vasquez Rocks, where the spectacular Aqua Dulce rock formations have been used extensively for movies and television productions. We will do a short, 2-3 mile hike along the rock formations from the nature center, check out the wildflowers, visit the nature center and do nature crafts. Also a possible opportunity for a 5 mile, relatively flat hike to the seasonal stream area. Learn about the rich history of the area, and the local plants. At night there will be a wonderful opportunity to examine the night sky away from the city lights. This trip is for the whole family! This is a great trip for beginning campers and for kids. The campsite has pit toilets and is a dry campsite, which will require that you bring your own water. However, the Nature Center will be open daily from 8 AM to 4 PM where running water and flush toilets are available. You will have to bring your own water for night use. Participants will need to bring their own camping gear including tent, sleeping bag, sleeping pad, reusable dinnerware and cups, and whatever else you will need to be comfortable while camping. We will have a campfire and s'mores if weather permits and if the fire danger is low (as determined by the rangers and fire department). Lunch will be on your own, Saturday will be a potluck dinner.
