Spots with keyword: trail

  • Salton Sea State Recreation Area
  • California State Parks, Bombay Beach CA
  • On the east side of the lake, making for spectacular sunsets over the water every night. Very quiet and beautiful and delightful. The big north-south highway and train tracks are pretty close and carry big noisy trucks and trains respectively.

  • Burro Creek Campground
  • Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Wikieup AZ
  • A great find! Very nice BLM campground right off US 93 between Phoenix and Kingman

  • Reelfoot Lake Campground
  • Tennessee State Parks, Samburg TN
  • Beautiful lakeside setting. No alcoholic beverages allowed in Tennessee State Parks.

  • North Campground
  • Bryce Canyon National Park, Bryce Canyon City UT
  • The other campground at Bryce, open longer into the fall. I like this one better, more convenient to the Lodge and Visitor's Center (wifi) and right next to the Rim Trail, which is what Bryce is all about.

  • Downstream Campground
  • Army Corps of Engineers, Fort Peck MT
  • A very pleasant campground in the Army Corps style, which is to say well-engineered down to the small details. There is a little network of paved trails over to the Dam Glorification/Dinosaur Museum and through the marshes.

  • Lake Solano Campground
  • Solano County Parks, Winters CA
  • Pretty campground and park on a little lake made from damming Putah Creek, the outflow of Lake Berrysea.

  • Juniper Campground
  • Theodore Roosevelt National Park, Watford City ND
  • The is the campground of the North Unit of the TRNP. It's quite pleasant.

  • Delta Heritage Trails State Park
  • Arkansas State Parks, West Helena AR
  • There is a tents only campground here, but I got here late in the day and the nice lady called the supervisor and said sure, you can park in the corner of the lot. Bless them! A railroad right-of-way has been repurposed to be the Delta Heritage Trail, and this is a spot for the hikers/bikers that use it.

  • Wetmore Campground
  • Wallowa-Whitman National Forest, Unity OR
  • Developed yet rustic and primitive, if that makes any sense. It's laid out nicely, but seems terribly underused and under-maintained. There are non-working no water spigots and a "No Water" sign. The fact that the Forest Service charges only $5 tells you what you need to know about the condition of the place. I however am liking it just fine and am happy to be here! Yellow Pine Campground is 1/2 away, much bigger and more open, but also underused and under-maintained. Six campers in a 40 site place on Fourth of July

  • Wagon Wheel Campground
  • Bruneau Sands State Park, Bruneau ID
  • Quite busy on Friday night. Lots of large, happy groups. Part of the crowd is for the observatory and the Friday night astronomy show!

  • Silver Mines Campground
  • Mark Twain National Forest, Fredericktown MO
  • Signage is very poor ==> hard to find. I ended up going to the river level loop with hookups and the camp host who directed me up the hill to the non-hookup sites on the bluffs. Nice big sites. There's a trail down to the swimming hole by the old dam. Very cool!

  • Horsethief Campground
  • Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Moab UT
  • This is where you camp when Island in the Sky is full ... which it always it. The method is to stop here on the way in, nail down a site then continue on another 20-odd miles to the Grand viewpoint ... then come back.

  • Manatee Springs State Park
  • Florida State Parks, Chiefland FL
  • Aquatic recreation paradise. swimming, kayaking, snorkeling, scubaing. You can swim or snorkel in the mouth of the spring Checkout is 3 pm.

  • Fowler's Camp Campground
  • Shasta-Trinity National Forest, McCloud CA
  • On the McCloud River, within hiking distance of the three waterfalls. Apparently heavily used in the swimming months, but pleasantly uncrowded tonight. The hike to Lower Falls is less than a mile and very scenic. Hike to Middle/Upper Falls is a little more than a mile. You can walk the paved road back to make it a loop if you wish.

  • Water Canyon Campground
  • Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Winnemucca NV
  • Lovely, quiet campground in an amazing location, tucked in a little valley six miles south of Winnemucca. You can hike up,up,up the creek, or hike up the side if the hill for an epic view north to the Jackson Mountains.

  • Roaring River Campground
  • Roaring River State Park, MO
  • Fifth spring in a row! Also a fishery. This may be the fishiest yet! Quite large, there is a lodge with a nice restaurant up the hill. There is wifi strong enough I could use it from my van ... but it only worked for the last 6 hours of my two days there. There was live bluegrass music in the Lodge on Friday night!

  • Salt Plains National Wildlife Refuge
  • Department of the Interior, Cherokee OK
  • Wonderful bird-watching place. There a short hike through the marshland to a blind.

  • Cape Perpetua Campground
  • Siuslaw National Forest, Florence OR
  • lovely spot in the valley beneath the cape. Lots of little hikes, and the rocky coast.

  • Fontainebleau State Park
  • Louisiana State Parks, Mandeville LA
  • expensive, but quite nice really. great beach, little nature trail through the swamp, gazebo.

  • Van Meter State Park
  • Missouri State Parks, Marshall MO
  • Really pleasant little park south of the Missouri, on a plain that used to be a Missouri Indian settlement. Deluxe shower building, well-maintained nature trails, nice picnic area, what's not to like?

  • Twin Peaks Campground
  • San Isabel National Forest, Twin Lakes CO
  • First campground coming off Independence Pass heading south. Real pretty. Still, $19 doesn't get you a lot in Colorado. Checkout time is noon. Elevation 9,620' - yikes!
