    Abandoned RV Park on East side of Glacier NP

    Address-2 Medicine Road, Cut Bank, MT

    This abandoned RV park has plenty of old campsites still set up. There is a bit of trash around but for free who can complain. Nice and secluded but near enough to the pavement that a street bike will have no problems. Great place to stop for the evening before going over the Going to the Sun road in the morning headed West.

    Is this the location? https://goo.gl/maps/pdE6x If so Google Maps does not like the "X" in your address.

    Looks like a neat place to camp.

    Anyone know anything about Shady Lake campground in Western Arkansas? I have a stay planned there this fall. It looks pretty cool to me.

    Washington State, East of the town of Randle, Off Hwy 12 on NF4510
    It is called Summit Creek Campground but kind of an unknown, hard to find by searching place that you're probably not going to find on a printed map. Free campsites each with table and fire ring. No water but on a little river.
    The pit toilets are awful but otherwise a nice quaint little campground. The site we like to visit is a large spread. There is an awesome swimming hole under the bridge. If you come at the right time of summer there are native blueberries surrounding the area. Hwy 12 is an awesome scenic route and this little gem of a campsite is right in the heart of the best parts between Randle and Naches. Free is a very good price!

    Sorry the photo is a little dark but I wanted you to see the shot with the bridge.

    Chilly waters but what a cool swim hole!

    Fresh berries for breakfast. There were three different varieties available when we were there.

    Thank you Deanwife!!!! Just the type of spot I've been looking for. Close yet far from Seattle. Added to my 'must do' list this summer.

    Jackson Meadows East Meadows Campground in CA. off Highway 89 between Truckee and Sierraville. Has restrooms and running water. A great lake in walking distance for shore fishing and good hiking. Quiet and mellow. Absolutely dead during the week. $20 a night I think. Fire pit picnic table and paved road the whole way in.

    If your doing Vancouver island, there's a nice private campground near Cambell River. Take the ferry to Quadra island and head North, you'll eventually get there. Don't remember the name but it's a nice place. On the beach, nice owner's. Well they was when I was there.

    In Gros Morne, Newfoundland: Lomond Campground. Great views of Bonne Bay, swimming area and nice facilities. Trout River is also pretty but the showers not so much. Sorry no coordinates but it's well marked. The ride through the valley up to Trout River is super and check out Woody Point for food and drink while you're in the area.

    I recently camped the night at the Bruceport County Park and Campground, in Washington state. $15/night for motorcyclists. Hot showers ($.25 for 3 minutes.) Quiet & peaceful park with large sites overlooking Willapa Bay. Firewood available. Great camp hosts too!
