>>Indian Dunes State Park

Kevin ... we, too, have stayed at Indiana Dunes State Park several times.

My wife likes it because it is close to the outlet shops!

Maggie Mutt and I like it because it's right on Lake Michigan.

To each, their own.

>>not done much camping.

Hey, don't worry about that! We all can remember our first campout ... and are excitedly looking forward to our next!

Another place we hope to return is

Palo Duro Canyon State Park in Canyon, TX.

Absolutely amazing place in the west Texas panhandle.

Anyone who's ever been to west Texas knows how flat it is ... for miles on end.

Well, guess what, near Canyon, Tx ... if you're not watching where you're going, you'll drive right off that flatness into some of the most absolutely beautiful canyons we've ever seen.

Great topic! I received the Schultz book last year for Christmas and it was a catalyst in our decision to do our winter Toronto to California safari in Feb. We'll try to hit all the books "must do's" for the Texas -SoCal-nevada loop. Campsite info would be greatly appreciated.
As far as favourite campsite...it has to be Long Key SP in Florida...but according to Doug and Kathy Roach, the park was ravaged by Wilma and its future is a question-mark. Sixty palm fringed sites all situated on the azure waters of the Atlantic...your own beachfront a few steps away...Jimmy Buffett was right- Paradise.
For closer to home...my favourite is Bon Echo Park in Ontario: a"bottomless"lake fronted by a huge granite wall hundred of feet above your canoe tour as you read the Indian pictographs on the rock's face. Pristine and awe-inspiring!
On the opposite tack...how about places to avoid while camping? I'll vote for the campsite in Ten Sleep Montana.the worst place ever and we've crossed this great land from sea to sea many times. We rated it "DNTWTFP" (Do Not Touch With Ten Foot Pole!)
Cheers...Alistair

A quick check of Long Key's web site says they'll be back...

You're right, it is the most fabulous campground. Another of our favorites was Highland Hammock near Sebring. Oh, and then there was Collier-Seminole near Naples. And did I mention Manatee Springs near Chiefland. These are all in Florida and were visited pre-digital days, so I guess we'll have to go back...

One area for winter camping that is still wide open, warm, inexpensive, and remote is Cabeza Prieta Wilderness.

http://www.wilderness.net/index.cfm?fuse=N...ta%20Wilderness

For those who like the desert and enjoy being remote and alone, this is the ticket, at least for now. Stars, wildlife, and the sounds of the earth..............

Bighorn Mtns in Wyoming. Take 14A west out of Sheridan. At Burgess Junction take the Forest Service Road north about 3 miles and pull into the old gravel pit, take the dozer road to the top of the hill. You can see forever from this site. Expect to see/hear elk, moose, wolves, eagles. My 4 kids and wife love the place.

AHH!!! I can't really answer this question. Why? The places I really want to camp at in the future I haven't heard about yet.

Gotta put in a plug for at least one east coast spot - Site 55 at Frisco NPS campground on the NC Outer Banks. Get up early, fix coffee and have the missus join you to watch the sun pop up right out of the Atlantic Ocean. Now if I get down there and see an egg in my favorite spot, ya gotta move or at least have the coffee ready.

Juniper Springs in the Ocala National Forest. Rent a canoe and take a ride like no other.

I'll second this. Swim in a "natural" pool 32' deep where the pristine, clear water bubbles up from the bottom so sweet & pure you can drink it. The water is cold in summer, at 70 something degrees since it bubbles up from the limestone Florida aquifer below. If you can swim to the bottom, it is full of ancient sea shells and petrified sharks teeth that I helped my kids gather to wonder at when we camped there so many weekends when they were growing up in the 70's & early 80's. I believe I used one of the first kayaks (I built it in early 70's) on that canoe run from the camp, down the river to the end where you were gathered and returned to the camp. Juniper Springs was indeed a wonderful place to spend a weekend. It likely still is. I am going back with the grand kids soon!

I just read this whole thread. It is likely the most interesting I have ever seen.
