RV Caravan at Lake McClure during the Superbloom

Matt Mayo
We RV caravan'ed during the spring after the heavy rains in California at Lake McClure. The group consisted of myself, my sister Christina, nephew Bryan and Steve. Bryan helped me tow the Airstream, while my tow vehicle awaits hitch repairs. He was a champ and did an amazing job! Steve had the Jayco being pulled by a GMC Canyon. The drive was under an hour and a great nearby spot for taking the Airstream out on its first camping trip. At the campground, Steve booked us side by side sites that were on a point. Each site had an electric and water hookup. For dumping there was a nearby campground with a station.

There is a path just feet away from our campground that features beautiful lakeside views, turkeys, deer, and an abundance of wild flowers. I used an app called Seek to identify Lupine, Fiddleneck, and Rust Popcornflower. April is really just the perfect time of year. Not too hot or too cold with beautifully sunny skies. In this part of California as May starts the weather heats up significantly.

The superbloom was wild! Soo many flowers and grasses so tall that deer could hide in them. This path went up a couple of hills and ended lakeside. Looking out to the lake you could see rows of boat houses and all types of fishing boats.
