AUBURN, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – So much for a quiet camping trip this summer – campgrounds across California are way too entertaining for that.

According to Debbie Sipe, executive director of the California Association of RV Parks & Campgrounds, more and more campsites are now offering quirky activities for visitors.

For example, Campland By The Bay in San Diego hosts American Idol-style singing competitions for campers, while El Capitan near Santa Barbara features Saturday night concerts by pro musicians.

Meanwhile, Redwoods River Resort & Campground in Leggett, California, plans to hold a chocolate pie-eating contest, a canoe race in their pool, and a water balloon war over the summer.

San Francisco North/Petaluma KOA will be having an ugly bridesmaid dress contest and a prom flashback dance, complete with a tacky tuxedo contest for men.

Sipe says other wacky forms of campsite entertainment include a park with a mechanical bull, costume pet parades, and cardboard boat races.
