Your original coordinates were almost correct. 43"20'26.92 N and 124"26
'46.09 W. Change the bold 6 to a 0
that will put your right in the middle of the campground.
Enter following in to Google Earth if you wish
43 20 26.92, -124 20 46.06 or
43 20.44866, -124 20.76783 or
The long form for coordinates is degrees (°) minutes (') Seconds (") FYI on a standard keyboard with a number pad the ° symbol can displayed by holding down the Alt key and entering 248 on the keypad.
Northern latitudes are a positive number or an "N" either in front or at the end. Southern latitudes are expressed as negative number often expressed with (-) in front or an "S" either in front at the end
Eastern longitudes are a positive number or a "E" either in front or at the end. Western longitudes are expressed as a negative number with (-) in front or a "W" either in front or at the end.
There you have the correct coordinates. Bud's mistake was an easy one to make small screen 6 and 0 can look alike.
