El Capitan Canyon Campground, CA
Say what you will about the notion of luxury camping,but for those who want to ease into the concept of taking on the great outdoors, or simply want to get a little closer to nature (but not too close), El Capitan is ideal. A 300-acre campsite with modest but worthy hiking trails just north of posh Santa Barbara, there's hard-walled cedar cabins or canvas-roofed safari tents, complete with running water and toilets. Should you want supplies, a cooked meal or, say, a copy of Men's Journal, the Canyon Market is on-site and even does cabin service.
