AUBURN, Calif., March 16, 2010 – Spring is quickly approaching and Easter will be upon us even earlier than it was last year. So why not celebrate Easter with a family camping trip?
“Several private campgrounds and RV parks and resorts are planning Easter activities, including daytime and nighttime Easter egg hunts,” said Debbie Sipe, executive director of the California Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds.
So far, the biggest event appears to be slated for Newport Dunes Waterfront RV Resort and Marina in Newport Beach, which will host its third annual Easter egg hunt on Saturday, April 3rd, with more than 6,000 candy and toy-filled Easter eggs.
