Presuming that's the Texas San Antonio (there's at least one more, in Florida) and you are in Texas, my favorite is Big Bend NP, sort of near the West Coast of the Rio Grande River :)

Just don't go at Thanksgiving, Easter or Spring Break as it is quite crowded and they sometimes run out of water (and water is scarce just prior to those times because they are trying to top off the tanks).

My favorite CG there is The Basin, which is suitable for Eggs but not longer rigs. I HIGHLY advise that you park rig right outside CG entrance and walk the roads to see where you can and can not go, because some of them are only spurs with no turn-around and the place is littered with CharlesRocks,which, like the infamous CharlesTrees, will leap out and strike your rig when you aren't looking in all the mirrors.

The hot springs are also nice but don't even think of dragging your egg in there; I wouldn't even try to take a longbed club cab pickup in there (single lane road curves around outcrop of rock on one side with road crumbling into gulley on other).

West Coast was the title to this thread

Favorite memories in northeastern California were Burney Falls State Park and Lake Almanor (a PG&E campground, as I recall.) This of course dates back a few years when tent camping out of a sports car was our style.

On the coast, Petrolia on the northern CA "lost coast" and Yachats in Oregon.

West Coast Camping

West Coast Camping
Awww, Rick. Here George is, trying to bring this discussion back around to its intended topic.

We can bug him about his age over in the General Chat area... or Jokes and Tall Tales, if you prefer.

Of course, no matter where you go with it, I'll bet you can't pin him down...

:jester

Aerial photos, California coastline

Here is a great source to see exactly what your campsite looks like, if you plan to camp anywhere along the California coastline. We found every site that we had camped at this year.

hit the road

I see that some of you were still talking about food after we hit the road. We did go to Moe's and had fish and chips and chowder and home made bread GOOOOOOOd !
The camping was great and we got to see the ocean with a good storm in, love to watch the waves hit the rocks. Found two new campgrounds that
<img src=http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/uploads/3dce8b9811402Umpqua Lighthouse CG.jpg/>
we have not camped in before, real nice and will go back. We are lucky to have so many good campgroungs to go too. For those of you go up to the Oregon coast try the Umpqua lighthouse CG it is south of Reedsport, Or. and Harbor View Park just north of Florence,Or. and Carl G Washburne CG 15 miles north of Florence, OR.( we didn't stay at this CG but will next time)

My favorite camp ground or camping spot (We like to boondock, nobody around) is the next one I'll be going to or the last one I was at.

Now for one that I can recommend.
If you want a small pretty quiet campground, camp next to rushing water, try Marion Forks on Hwy 22, in Oregon of course.

If you want a mountain meadow with lots of flowers, or fall colors, a few trails including the Pacific Crest Trail, then maybe Little Crater Lake is the place. It's in the Mt Hood National Forest.

If want close to the coast Blackberry Camp Ground is a good bet. It's pretty quiet and a short drive will get you to the beach. Since it's by the Alsea River there's fishing to be done too.

All three of these places are National Forest Campgrounds. No hookups, but for those of us that have Golden Age Passports it's half cost to stay in them.

My favorite place to camp in the Sierras is located just 40 miles to the East of my home. It's at an elavation of 6,000ft so cool in the summer. It's Mountain Home State Forest and camping is FREE! There are 5 different campgrounds in the state forest and most of them are right next to the giant Sequoia redwood trees. 3 fishing ponds are in the area plus a fork of the Tule river for trout fishing. Here's a link. Mike

There are some Oxbows that yield good German Brown Trout and Rainbows. I've also caught some nice Bass during the summer. This is BLM land and has range cattle from time to time. You will also feel like you are in a Walt Disney movie. There is a lot of wild life like Coyotes, Dear, Beaver, etc. there.


Thank you, thank you.

I live near Lake Isabella and the Kern River. Both are always crowded.
I have been wondering were to go this weekend with one of my grandsons. I am learning to fly fish and this sounds like the perfect place.
Now that I have a Burro I am going to do much more camping as my little Toyota P U is much less expensive to drive than my F-250 4X4.
Big Pine is only about 150 miles from my home. I will not have to hear to many are we there yets from an 8 y o.
I promise to keep your secret.

P.S. Are there any ATV trails in the area that you know of for quad runners?

A couple of areas in San Luis Obispo county, California are:

1) Black Mountain (Pozo-LaPanza) Off roaders love it. NOT my cup of tea.

The State Park Rangers (Police)

2) Pismo Beach State Beach (Off Road Beach Camping) Combat camping at its best. Often sold out. Make sure you get reservations. OH, and bring your ear plugs. Plan on camping in the sand dunes. High tide gives many people trouble if they donít have 4 wheel drive.

3) Southern California Off Road Sites

I liked Camp Switzerland at Lake Gregory. The steep driveway down into the canyon is a little scary the first time you go there, but the best sites are the no-hookup sites at the bottom.

In San Diego County, my favorite get-away is Cibbets Flat Campground, US Forest Service

These are both Boondocking campsites.
