Febuary be cold but:
State Park in the Redwoods, California Coast?
(north or south of San Francisco)
Agree with the cold comment but Anza Borrego in Feb generally has nice weather. Camp on the Ocotillo side of the Salton Sea or on the Bradshaw Trail side. Gooseberry and I have camped out off the Bradshaw trail with the Exp Portal group and had a blast, even got buzzed by harriers each day.
There is also a Glamis North KOA campground that has full hookups, pool, mineral pools and a great burger for those that don't do just out in the desert. I can do either but most of the time prefer out away from the crowds but the KOA is close enough that folks could drive out and meet the desert dwellers.
Always fun to take a cruise through Slab City (look it up) and the other sites. Gooseberry even has a little side route up a wash to the stone cabin "Hotel California" we went to. The Ocotillo Wells Rec Veh area has some mild trails with and great lookouts just outside of the park at Fonts Point. Also great dirt bike riding.
Haven't been to Alabama Hills but it looks great.
Pinnacles and that area around Trona has a rich history of mining and lots to see like Randsburg.
I hosted a meet and greet as well already at the beach but love the desert in the winter. I am game if we can pick a good date....maybe one of these:
Weekend of Feb 4th, March 2nd, March 16th or March 30th looking good.
