What exactly do they mean of self-contained in California?
If I go there in a van with only a bed and a portable toilet, will they turn me away or is their definition just mean you have to be inside a rv of some sort and not a tent? I'm sure everyone thoughts are different on what is self-contained and what isn't. I leave with what I come in with minus any garbage that goes into the garbage containers that are provided and that isn't much either.
I ask this cause I'd like to camp out in the van at least one night on the coast in California when I go there at the end of March. I would like to do a state run one cause it is easier to find one with a beach wheelchair so I don't have to keep trying to pull my friends chair out of the sand. Done that one in Florida last January. I ended up getting some help from someone there that offered. I can't take the bus on this trip as the fuel bill is too much and it would take longer to get there. I am planning to do close to half the nights in the van out of the 3 week period on the trip.
