    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.

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

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

    We had camped there in 82, but that is another story:eek1

    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:eek1 ) 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:D .

    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.

    [​IMG]

    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.

    Any chance this could be turned into one of those google map deals with "pins"? You click on a pin and get details of the camp area...otherwise, you are going to get a list that while wonderful, will take forever to actually be able to use.

    Heck...make one of those google maps, combine the lists (different colored pins for campsite/crash space/etc. That would be freaking useful!

    I'd offer to help but my googlemap-fu isn't very strong yet.

    I don't imagine many folks wind their way through rural Alabama, but if you find yourself travelling on Highway 69 south of Tuscaloosa, in Hale County, stop by the little town of Moundville, Alabama.

    You'll find Moundville Archaelogical Park. Basically, it was the meeting grounds for the five major native american tribes of the southeast while in their prime. It's on the banks of the Black Warrior River, and it's spectacular.

    Camping is excellent, with good bathrooms and electrical hookups if your Goldwing needs a sewer or power line :D

    I think the fee is $10, but if you go on a weekend, no one is around to collect your money.

    Best of all, you get the run of the park after hours. Best camping east of the Mississippi, in my opinion.

    Cheers!

    Bathrooms, showers, charcoal grills, we were there for two weeks and it was not very noisy nor crowded. Beautiful views of the Santa Catalina Mtns.

    Gilbert Ray Campground

    Go west from town through the Tucson mountains over Gates Pass Road, hang a right on Kinney road, campground is on the left.
    Camping Fee: $12/night (See web site for current fees)
    Bathrooms, showers, nice views, very pretty. Tent area is far from RV area.

    Bathrooms, showers, also boat launches. We were the only campers there in mid-September; reservations are recommended for summer months so I imagine it could get busy. Nice view of an artificial lake, pretty rock formations. Lots of bunnies.

    Hells Canyon has been a favorite place of mine for many many years.
    There is a beautiful campground right on the Snake River. There are tent sites for $10 per night, and several RV sites for $20 per night. The RV sites have electricity and water. Tents can stay in the RV sites for the RV price. There are CLEAN showers, nice bathrooms, telephones. There is a grocery store and gas station nearby. There are MILES and MILES of dirt roads all over the place, both in Oregon and Idaho. Great fishing, too!!
    If you all need more info, feel free to contact me. I know the area very well!

    I was here this last August.
