In the past we have gone parallel to the road with the door facing the campsite for privacy or view. And wrong sided the door in order to face another family members camper. Drag the table around and shared a fire pit. Good times!

Did stay at one campsite that did not allow wrong side orientation to create a communal site. Said it was fire code. I'm darn sure if the campground is on fire I'm not hooking up the camper.... I'm a leaving.

Did you mean this one?
Farewell Bend Campground - Photos, Information, and Reviews

Or is it the campground from which no one returns?

Joy,
I am impressed both by the view you obtained and your parking skills. That took some real doing to get that in there. I have seen females who have enough space to parallel park an 18-wheeler pulled by a 20-mule team but still end up at least 3 feet from the curb and after bumping both the vehicles in front and behind them. The transmission and clutch were probably a little warm by the time you got it in there, but hey, the view was worth it.

Those are the kinds of times where a 4-foot extension on the TV hitch would come in real handy. You could make a jackknife orientation without wrapping the trailer hitch around the side of the TV, as well as kissing the front corner of the Scamp. That tree probably gets nervous every time it sees a small camper getting anywhere near the site, and probably has the scrapes in its bark to prove it.

There is a compliment to you some where in there!!J

I can't say for certain Brian, only speculate. It is located just upstream from the Rogue River Gorge where the entire river narrows to a few feet and drops 100' to the rocks below. Be careful what you say about the women Jim if you ever come to Oregon. There's always room at the Farewell Bend and only women pulling their RV's out in the morning.

Farewell Bend ?

There's at least two in Oregon, one a State Park on the Snake River and the other a Forest Service Park on the Rogue River. They're located almost as far apart as possible and still be in Oregon.

I hear you on that one. We had a meeting on fire safety at work a few months back. They told us to meet in the parking lot for a head count...the parking lot of a hangar full of glass windows, on fire with 100+ jets on it. I told them to look for the tire smoke heading out of the drive, that'll be me.
