Favorite camping spots and sights to see.

My favorite wintertime activity is to plan my spring, summer and fall camping trips. I got to wondering how many of us have favorite spots we camp at every year. If you have one why not share and include some sites to see in that area.

I have a few in Vermont and a few in New York's Adirondacks.
I'll add them to this topic tomorrow....I prefer State Parks with limited hookups
and waterfront lake sites.

My favorites in Vermont:Half Moon Pond...smaller campground without "day-use" park visitors...this prevents overcrowded conditions...most sites are lakefront.
Next is Button Bay Campground right on Lake Champlain...large and well kept with large sites and fantastic views of the Adirondack Mountains just across the waters of Lake Champlain...visit the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum when there it is about one mile away. Lake Champlain was the setting of many of the actions of the Revolutionary War, and don't miss visiting Fort Ticonderoga just over the Lake Champlain Bridge at Crown Point, New York.

New York State has many fantastic state campgrounds....the one at Crown Point, NY on Lake Champlain (a 120+ mile long lake that runs into Canada).
In the Adirondack Mountains don't miss the huge waterfront campground (over 200 sites) on the waterfront of "Fish Creek Ponds" at Saranac Lake, New York.
Another is Cranberry Lake also in the 6 million Acre Adirondack Park. There are too many New York State Parks in the Adirondacks to list here.
Visit this web site for details and pictures of each individual campsite in the Adirondacks.....campadk.com. Best web site for campers visiting the Adirondacks who want a natural experience...campgrounds have water available located throughout the campgrounds...large sites...many great ponds and lakes..picnic tables, fire rings and plenty of bathrooms with showers etc.
These are very special places throughout the Adirondack Wilderness.

Happy Camping !

We visited Vermont this last year and stayed in a lodge, before we had our FGRV, and we thrilled by the views. We're looking forward to the adventures we're gonna have this season as we explore our home state of Kentucky. However, you make the Adirondacks sound really appealing. Thanks for your post.

Love the ADK, can not wait to take my new (to me) renovated scamp up there this year. Usually stay at privately own North Pole Campgrounds. Your at the base of White Face Mountain and on the Ausable River. A few water sites (only for FGRV size) throw in your kayak go 200 yds and your at a public beach on the river. 20 minutes from Lake Placid and the 1986 Winter Olympic venues, 20 minutes from ADK Loj. Great place, beautiful mountains (climbed 13, so only 33 more to go). I believe the say it is the largest state park in the lower 48. Anyway, lots to do and I am never disappointed.

We do indeed have summer here in Vermont and it's a holiday. Some refer to it as 4th of July.

I'll bite : )

In the Pacific Northwest...
All the below sites would be considered "Primitive" in that they do not have water or electric available and have only vault toilets (if even that)...this is our preferred mode of camping.

In no particular order of preference, though we do make sure to visit each year:

Sunset Falls Campground
Open Year Round, ~18 Primitive sites with pit toilets along a beautiful river (with gold panning available). ~1 hour north of Portland Oregon in Washington.

Lower Falls Campground
Open from ~Memorial Day through October~ 40 Primitive sites with vault toilets on an amazingly beautiful river with breathtaking waterfalls ( yup I meant every word of that! ) ~2 hours north of Portland Oregon in Washington.


Yellowbottom Recreation area
Open ~Memorial Day through October~ 20 Primitive sites with vault toilets a walk away from another great river. There is also an eleven mile area along the same river before the campground that is set aside for gold prospecting and free camping at ~40 first-com-first-served sites on the river. ~2 hours south of Portland Oregon.

Nehalem Falls Campground
Open ~Memorial Day through October~ 12 Primitive sites with vault toilets. There are also ~12 free dispersed sites close by that are open year round...though you will be sharing the camp-area with black bears and big kitty cats from about November through March : ) ~1.5 hours south of Astoria Oregon.


YMMV... but we make sure we've got our bear spray at all times.

Happy Trails and safe travels.
Thom

That must have been the time it was turned into a long weekend.

The Adirondacks has to be one fantastic place to take a trailer. We were there at Blue Mountain just pre-trailer and would love to go back with our Escape. So many great lakes and towns.

OK, Here's my Two cents! Two places in North California I love to camp at is Albion River camp ground on the ocean off of Highway 1 and Ocean Cove camp ground also right on Highway 1! The views from Ocean Cove can't be beat!
All the best, Monte

Everything listed sounds awesome. My favorite Minnesota camping area is the Boundary Waters BWCA from Ely, MN to Canada where you canoe in and the North Shore of Lake Superior, north of Duluth, MN at State Parks. It starts to get cold after labor day, enough to wear long underwear, hats, gloves, layers and light down jackets. I camp alone mostly because my husband is an urban farmer, so he's busy Spring - Fall. I have a blast meeting wonderful campers. In addition to my Scamp, I have a pop-up, which I am starting to love. Haven't been brave enough to try remote State Forests by myself. I'm a fan of electricity because I never bring propane tanks.
