Campground Reservations with Total Escape


Campground Reservations w/ Reserve America are back!

just in time for summer

No hurry, no worries, as you coast down the forested route to your premiere camping destination. A shady campground near an alpine lake or fishing creek is a favorite destination for many in California. Summer time is here and it seems everyone is on vacation; but alas, you have camping reservations at this perfect spot - a camp site held specifically for you.

Over the past two decades Total Escape has seen numerous affiliate programs disappear, hundreds of independent lodges go out of business and recreation outfitters close shop. About 5 years ago ReserveAmerica, the nationwide campground reservation system, was acquired by Active.com. Soon after most of our campground links were null and void, so DanaMite updated them to something more relevant.

Well it has taken a several years but we finally got all the new camping reservation links back up, so you can now reserve a campground through Total Escape - again!

Sierra Mountains Map

Destinations Map of The Sierras

Long ago I began compiling photos and data on remote back roads of the Sierra Nevada mountains. Now it's my (dream) job. Reworking and updating old pages every decade, whether they need it or not.

All old REGION maps on DESTINATIONS will slowly be replaced this summer with new, customized GoogleMaps. Showing links to small towns, sightseeing stops, hiking trailheads, dining options, cabins and camping.

The highest peaks in the nation seem like a good place to start.

Responsive: 18 years



Responding to the width of any device. The phrase 'responsive web design' did not exist a decade ago because bigger was better and the large 1500 mega pixel wide flat displays were all the rage back then. Wider photographs, crystal clear imagery, streaming videos and playing movies on your home computer. Gone were the days of ugly web 1.0, w/ limited screen space and 800 width, as advertising banners and text ads filled any blank space. Fast forward to today and web sites now need to look good on all computers, from desktop to palm sized.

NEW SITE DESIGN IS IN THE WORKS
for the content site of Total Escape. Map store sales are on the way out!
