Plan a Thanksgiving Camping Trip to Remember
#1 Make Your First Thanksgiving Meal in Your RV
Use these tried and true tips from fellow RVers to make Thanksgiving meal preparation a breeze.
- If you plan to use the oven for cooking side dishes or desserts, cook your turkey outside in a deep fryer, electric roaster, or on the grill instead. Pressure cookers like Instant Pots are also a big favorite.
- Prepare most of your side dishes the day before and refrigerate them overnight. Simply pop them in the microwave or oven to reheat.
- Divvy up tasks among family members. Have the kids dress up and set the picnic table, assign someone the job of warming up the premade side dishes, and have an adult carve the turkey.
#2 Rent a Space for an Even Larger Gathering
Get the extended family and friends together for a Thanksgiving camping trip. Rent a space in one of our clubhouses for your gathering! Make it a potluck and have everyone pitch in with delicious dishes. For more details, visit our clubhouse rentals page.
#3 Enjoy All of the Campground Activities Before and After the Turkey
When you stay at Gold Country Campground Resort, you are just steps away from tons of indoor and outdoor fun. Take Fido for a hike, putt your way through mini-golf, play a game of pool, test your skills at horseshoes, and more. There are so many activities to fill your holiday stay. Get a bird’s eye view of everything we have to offer on-site.
#4 Explore What’s Just Minutes Away From Gold Country Campground Resort
Go sightseeing and adventuring to nearby towns and attractions. Visit Kirkwood Ski Resort that features beginner, intermediate, advanced, and expert terrain across 2,300 skiable acres. Learn about the history of gold mining by taking a tour at The Roaring Camp Mining Company or The Kennedy Mine. Or visit the historic Pine Grove, Ione, and Jackson.
#5 Opt for a Twist on a Classic Thanksgiving Dessert
Forgo the traditional Thanksgiving pumpkin pie for these Campfire Pumpkin Spice S’mores. Roast two marshmallows over the fire and sprinkle with pumpkin pie spice after removing from heat. Then carefully sandwich between graham cracker squares with white chocolate and pumpkin butter.
Whether you stay in one of our cabins or RV sites, your Turkey Day will never be the same once you experience a Thanksgiving camping trip at Gold Country Campground Resort. So get out and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season with us!
