Flood Water Updates

A year ago, who would have dreamed we were going to have TOO MUCH water?! They say, “Ask and you shall receive”. Looks like all of us Californians begging for an end to the drought got exactly what we asked for! Now, we’re navigating our flooded campgrounds and hoping the water recedes quickly so that we can get dried out fast. Unfortunately, we had to cancel all reservations for the Fourth of July and the weekend of July 7th.

The water level are expected to recede soon, so we should be able to honor the following weekend’s bookings (July 14th-16th)!
Lindy’s Landing gives flood water updates

Follow Along for Continued Flood Water Updates

Take a look at Jake’s video to get a good idea of what it looks like around the campground! As he so aptly puts it, "The upside is, I don't think we have any gophers anymore". There is always an upside.

Check out the difference between the June 29th video (where you can actually see some ground and sand) and the video Jake posted just 10 days earlier. It does give us hope that we can be done with this soon.

The local Sheriff’s Office says we may be able to allow boating this coming weekend, July 14th. However, as of right now we can’t say for certain. We’re keeping our eye on all conditions and checking with the Tulare County Sheriff’s office for all flood water updates and alerts.

Pine Flat Dam is 99% full (as of the end of June). Recent water releases caused flooding in King’s County and posed a threat to many residents and businesses. The release of water was reduced after the flooding occurred.

Visit the Lindy’s Landing Supporters Facebook page for more flood water updates and for information as it’s put out. Please feel free to give us a call with any questions at (559) 897-2885

We miss everyone and hope to have things back to normal soon!

3 Reasons to Plan a Camping Trip this Spring

Nothing feels quite as good as those first sunshiny days after the cold, wet winter. When the seasons change and spring peeks out at us from underneath the chilled ground, we know it’s time to start planning our outdoor activities. We’ve got 3 reasons to plan a camping trip this spring and we can’t wait to share them with you! Ready? Keep reading:

Our Top 3 Reasons to Plan a Camping Trip this Spring

The sun is finally out, the chill has left the air and we’re ready to not only clean out our homes, but to clean out our very spirits! In our world (and we’re pretty sure your’s too), that means CAMPING! Here are our top 3 reasons to plan a camping trip this spring:

  1. Smaller Crowds - Let’s face it, unless you’re one of us, people aren’t making their camping reservations yet. This means you can get a great spot without fending off the crowds you normally see in the summertime. Spring is the perfect time to pick your favorite spot, spread out and enjoy the singing birds, croaking toads and lapping water without the busyness of a full campground.

  1. The summer heat hasn’t hit yet - There’s something completely different about the springtime sun that brings us out into the fresh air and makes us want to stay there, as opposed to the summertime sunshine that, undoubtedly, brings us joy, but also makes us seek the shade of a large tree and a refreshing dip in the rushing water. Book a springtime camping trip to soak up the sunshine while the temperature stays within welcoming regions.

  1. Wildflowers! - Springtime and the season’s blooms are synonymous! You simply can’t have spring without wildflowers! Pitch your tent, unpack your campground and don’t forget to bring a container or two to hold the fresh picked wildflowers you’re bound to gather on your morning hike!

Ready to get outdoors and plan your spring camping trip? We’re looking forward to seeing you! Take a look at our springtime camping checklist to make sure all your gear is in order and then give us a call to book your camping trip this spring.

How to Plan a Romantic Camping Trip

Valentine’s Day is on its way and that means everyone’s thinking of romantic dinners, flowers, sparkling eye-catchers, and how to celebrate the special someone in your life. Planning a romantic camping trip during the season of love is a unique way to show your Valentine that you want to create memories with them. We’ve gathered some dreamy ideas to help you plan a memorable and heartfelt romantic camping trip.

Lindy’s Landing has your guide to planning a romantic camping trip

It’s In the Details - How to Plan a Romantic Camping Trip

From gear to recipes to location and all the little details, here are our best tips for planning your romantic camping trip:

Gear - Picking the proper gear is an important detail for your trip.
  • Tent - Be sure you have a tent that’s suitable for the colder weather. If you aren’t sure about your tent, you can check this guide for how to choose a tent.
  • Air Mattress - Whether you’re looking for thick and plush or economical, Amazon has many choices so you can find an air mattress that fits your budget and your comfort level.
  • Duo Sleeping Bag - Staying snug and cozy will be easy in a 2-person sleeping bag.
  • Blankets, Pillows, and Throws - Making the tent snug, cozy, and welcoming is the fun part! Bring plenty of extra pillows and blankets to create the perfect atmosphere for snuggling against the cold.

Food - Picnics have a way of conjuring romantic images of playful couples enjoying the outdoors and each other’s company. Campfires remind us to get close, share a favorite beverage, and warm up together. When you plan a romantic camping trip, you get to have both the picnic and the campfire!
  • Plan for each of you - Nothing says, “I’m thinking of you” like being prepared with your sweetheart’s favorite foods.
  • Will you be staying at the campsite or hiking out to a planned destination? - Think ahead so that your food choices can be easily packed and prepared whether you’re at your campsite, or hiking up to a breathtaking spot.
  • Coffee or tea? - We all start our mornings off with certain routines. Even while camping, you want to be sure you and your loved one get your favorite (and possibly needed) beverage.
  • S’mores Please! - No camping trip is complete without everyone’s favorite camping sweet treat. We found this Valentine’s versions, and grown-up options too.

Set the Mood - The little details count!
  • Music - You may have created the perfect romantic camping trip playlist, but if you can’t get service or your battery dies, you’ll be humming campfire tunes instead of creating the perfect camping ambiance. Pack a battery operated radio as a backup. Do either of you play the guitar? Bring it!
  • Solar lights - Sure, the stars will be twinkling, but why not add a touch of soft lighting around the campsite and your tent?
