The Campsite List ...
As a companion thread to The Tent Space List I thought it might be nice if there was a thread listing good campsites that folks here have enjoyed.
If you have a place you'd recommend to other ADV folk, please post the info.
It would be nice if all listings included the following:
1) State / Town / Region
2) GPS co-ords
3) Fee / no fee
4) Features ... table / firering / shower / wi-fi / noisy crowds
5) Whatever else impressed you, or annoyed you
I'll use the same format as The Tent Space List. This first post will grow to include the basic location info of the campsite and a reference to your post with the more detailed info. If you make a post, and then think of, or find another nifty campsite, make a new post rather then editting your first post. I won't be reviewing posts to see if you added new locations.
Thanx to everyone who pitches in.
be well, g

Garner State Park
Nice heated showers, electricity, fast wi-fi at the visitors station ( can get it in the parking lot) Beautiful views, lots of wildlife.
10 miles from the three best motorcycling roads in Texas, The "three sisters"
Nice and empty this time of year, will be packed solid during the camping season so make sure to call for reservations.
$15 with no elec, $19 with elec.
Beware of SKUNKS!!:eek1
This is the rock condo that you will get at "Valley of Fire", Nevada (Arch Campground, the best one!) for $14 a night which also includes the Park's entry fee. Hot showers, head, water, NO power, very nice people. 15 miles from Overton, the city.
You can read much more about it here , (a true to form ride report on my website!), feel free with questions, we have been camping for 5 months now... 6 months a year the past 20 years with over a million miles... and I will go back to my favorite spots and start posting them... many free!
If you are coming from the West do the route through Lake Mead National Park!!! 50 miles of pure heavenly riding... have camera and many batteries!!!
Toad Rock Campground
TOAD ROCK CAMPGROUND
Just North of Nelson BC (that's in Canada)
I think that Forillon National Park (Gaspe, QC) has been my favorite, but that might be because I was so glad to finally get there. :lol3 I'll update this post later with details.
Lost Maple State Natural Area TEXAS
Kissing cousins to Garner State Park, Beautiful area hot showers is busy during camping season but the folks are so nice (I ended up loaning fleece jackets to a couple who were going out evening hiking and hadnt prepared) Next to some of the best roads in the hill country, less than 8 miles from the motorcycle museum in vanderoot.
Roughly 12 miles of hiking trail (no vehicle, foot only) that is worth a weekend trip by itself.
Beaver Creek Campground, Sedona, AZ.
This is a Campground about 12 miles south of Sedona on 179. Passes Hwy #17 and the Ranger's Office.
$15 a night which sounds a bit pricey but this is the Sedona area, closer to town the fees go up to $50+!!!
Water, outhouses, no showers BUT a great creek with a pool within feet for your daily bath...:lol3
Great Hosts, Patrick and his wife with a lot of knowledge about the area.
Great place to camp if you are going to sightsee the area or do some hiking.
You can read more detailled info here...
Be well... Ara & Spirit
local park, free, just off interstate
free showers, close to the river sprinklers may go off in some parts in middle of the night!:):eek1
west yellow stone hwy and grant street
My best campsite ever:
Vildmarkscamping Urshult in Sweden.
Nice campground in the middle of the woods and only
2mls from nowhere. Free wood for camp fires, great
surroundings, no electricity, no comfort but really
what camping is ment to be. I just love it.
My stay in 2005:
Have fun there,
Their are way to many to list here around Bishop CA. If you PM me with what you are looking for and when you are coming I'll send you to the best for what you want.:deal
Lime Kiln State Park, 30 miles south of Big Sur on California Coastal Highway 1
Its a fantastic campsite that I can highly recommend, right between the mountains and the sea shore.
Looking the other way fantastic views of the coastline.
Beautiful site and area...
This week and next in this great spot, just a few miles west of Zion,
Lat 37.10 Long 113.06
On Highway 9, between marker 24 and 25. Free... no facilities... great creek... quiet, more info on the Blog.
*** I will be in / around San Francisco soon... the last time I was there camping, was only by reservation and very pricey... and accross the Gloden Gate Birdge... pricey also!!! If anyone knows a place to camp around / near the City... please let me know...
Thanks and be well...
