Berkeley Tuolumne camp to reopen on 100th anniversary
Located along the South Fork of the Tuolumne River in the Stanislaus National Forest, Berkeley’s popular and historic Camp Tuolumne site will finally reopen on its 100th anniversary, Berkeleyside reported.
Until the Rim Fire burned down the area in August 2013 and destroyed its cabins, dining room and facilities, the campground was frequented by thousands of families each summer. At the end of August, the fire quickly burned 100,000 acres and forced hundreds of people to evacuate their homes. To this day, it is still one of largest recorded fires in California history, burning a total of 257,000 acres and destroying 112 structures.
