Interesting indeed. A good guide for future travel plans, good descriptions of the campgrounds, often hard to find when planning. One of my personal goals the Tetons, so the article on Bridger-Teton National Forest campground was great.

However, being from the NW I find it interesting not one of our beautiful National Park campgrounds, or the more beautiful out of the way camping areas, did not make the list. Maybe it's because we lack vistas - all those darn trees!

And nothing in New England?

Oh well, maybe a top ten list is too limiting for such a vast and diverse country. And everyone has their own criteria and tastes.

Man, that is really bad. Nebraska.....give me a break. Had to go to the Nebraska link to see what the heck they found scenic.

....Dismal River.....Dismal Trail.....

That about sums it up.

I'm with Penney. I'll take the NW coast anytime.

Have lived here on the central coast, within miles of the Los Padres National Forest, my whole life! Have only really started exploring all it has to offer in the last 5 yrs or so. I can agree with them, it's a great space, there are some BEAUTIFUL things to see, and some great little hideaway campgrounds. And the beautiful part? Most of the campgrounds only require the $30 a year Adventure Pass, or a few are even FREE! How can you beat that???

Talking

I notice the article says:

"No question about it: California's Big Sur coastline is a magnificent place 75 miles of untamed coastline with some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. Stretching from Carmel, in the north, south to San Simeon..."

On our recent trip to the area driving north, we left the coastal highway at San Simeon (Hearst Castle) crossing back to Highway 101 on Hwy 46 to Paso Robles. Highway 46 was a beautiful drive also, btw.

Well that gives us reason to return to the area, he he.

Having spent some time in the Bridger Wilderness two of the last three summer I can tell you it is magnificent. We have a friend that has a summer home 1/4 a mile from where the dirt road starts. We did not camp but did drive the road several times up to the Green River Lakes. The camp ground was being worked on and was nice. Great fishing, hiking, and canoeing!

We hope to be able to return this summer. We have supplies to donate to the Kendall Valley Volunteer Fire Department, the people who take care of what needs to be done in that area!

Having ben thru much of the west (WA, OR, CA, ID, UT, CO, NV, NM) is can't see how you can make a Top 10 list. There are so many beautiful places.
