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

We have something like this in the Europe area as a sticky. I think it's a good idea.

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.
Lat 36.25
Long114.33

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!!!

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. 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.

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.



Homesite:
www.vildmarkscamping.se

My stay in 2005:
www.svendura.de/se2005.htm

Have fun there,

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.
