Follow Oprah's Lead and Visit Yosemite in a Campervan Rental

Oprah Winfrey is the type of woman who can choose any kind of vacation she wants, but on a recent getaway with best friend Gayle King the talk show queen chose camping in Yosemite National Park, a perfect destination for a motorhome rental road trip. Oprah and Gayle have shared other exciting adventures in the past--including an 11 day road trip--and filmed this particular trip for Oprah's daytime show. Lady O decided to visit Yosemite, and spotlight the joys of camping, when park ranger Shelton Johnson brought it to her attention that a very small number of campers are African-Americans. According to "out of the 280 million tourists who come [to Yosemite], just 1 percent are African-American."

Determined to spread the word among the African-American community and beyond, Oprah and Gayle headed to Yosemite where they stayed in a camper. With Sheldon's guidance Oprah and Gayle explored the beauties of Yosemite including the Giant Grizzly (not a bear, but a huge sequoia tree), Mairposa Grove and Tunnel View (right). While Oprah struggled to cook a meal of sea bass and potatoes on a fire those with a motorhome rental would find it much easier to cook whatever they pleased in their RV. The following day the friends tried their hands at fly fishing, socialized with others in the park and went horseback riding, just a sample of the things available for those who visit Yosemite.
