Okay....

Bon Echo Provincial Park.

20 km north of Kaladar, Ontario, on hwy 41. Near Cloyne. N44 53.807 W77 12.720 It's about a 100 miles from the border crossing at the 1000 Islands Bridge.

Beautiful place, with all manner of sites between full hook up to hike in. Clean facilities: shower/toilet/laundry, that sort of thing. Small boat and canoe rental on site, worth renting a canoe to go out on Mazinaw Lake. Good fishing, nice beach.

Website.

Most folks say it's one of nicest parks in Ontario. I like it. Boy loves it.

Their are several on the right hand side as you enter Mammoth. They are the usual Forest Service campsites. You can get a site at the Mammoth Mountain RV Park across the street for more money and more services, pool, showers, etc.

Lander, WY - central wyoming

Wyoming, Lander, City Park

GPS co-ords - N42 49.291 W108 44.258

its Free, and really nice.

they have a picnic table and a grill at each campsite. there is a restroom house within a couple of hundred feet. it's not super private, but it is clean and has a baseball field in the park, they were playing when we got there, but finished up just after dark.

it's an easy day from the tetons and yellowstone, salt lake city, a medium day from the black hills. we picked up some charcoal, stuff to make burgers on the grill and beer and had one of the most relaxing evenings on the cross country trip. apparently its a town that's huge with rock climbers and big game hunters.

Does anyone know of a good tent camping spot in or around Glacier National Park? I'll be there from July 8th through the 12th.

East Glacier

Last year we camped by the east entrance to Galcier at Johnsons (I think that was the name)
Great camp spots, reasonable rates, flush toilets and good showers.
If you can be there on a Sunday the feast at the resturant is to die for!
Motorcycle friendly.

Up a little hill on the right as you head north.

We had camped there in 82, but that is another story

Highway 1, CA Central Coast

Howdy,

About 6.5 miles past the small town of Gorda there is a turnoff to the right called Nacimiento Lake Rd (this can take you all the way to Hunter Liggett Military base that you will need your DL/registration/insurance if your going all the way through). The turn is almost directly across from a pay campground ($17) but the name escapes me. Travel up about seven miles (don't go off the edge looking at the views ) and when at the top of the saddle you can turn either left or right (straight takes you to other pay campgrounds and Hunter/Liggett). There are all sorts of places to camp up top. Some with benches & pits and some are just a flat spot. Take your time and you will find one that has a view that any land developer would give their eye teeth for. Price: free. Memories: priceless .

Galena Peak

Right outside of Ketchum Idaho.

On the way to Stanley.
At the summit of Galena Peak Pass there is a dirt road. It looks totaly impassable but it is not.
At the top is one of the most beautiful places on earth. Complete with firepit and picnic table.
A must stop for the weary traveler.

Robert Service Campground

Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada.

Close to town (about 2km or 1.5 miles due south on Robert Service Way), So about a 20 min. stumble...er...stroll from town, along the foot path that follows the river.

I believe it was about $14 CDN + firewood (as much as you want for $4 per night IIRC), fire pits, tables, showers, coffee shack /w intenet. There might be wireless near the coffee/goodie/office shack. Tents only

A typical site, note: bikes, tents, and goofballs not included.



This is a funky campground with a nomadic soul. Lots of long term tenters here, due to high housing costs up north. There can be parties. And airplanes, as it sits below the approach/departure for the Whitehorse airport. But it's not a very busy airport. It was fairly quiet there in late August. It can get pretty chilly at night in the shoulder seasons, and stays light out a looong time into the night in the summer. It is foot access only from the parking lot to the camping sites, but they said it was no problem to take the motorcycles in, but please only run them to come or go.

N 60.42.03.3, W 132.55.01.0
