What's your favorite campground/park

I think it would be nice to see pics from some of your favorite places to camp.

We prefer state and corps of engineer parks.

Inks Lake State Park near Marble Falls, Tx.



Beavers Bend State Park near Broken Bow, Ok.





Cagle Park on Lake Conroe, Tx.



What are some of your favorites?

Happy Camping!!
Mark

cool pics man, and nice set up you got there.

As much as I love to go up in the woods and camp, I would have to say my favorite is in the dunes. Here is my favorite spot, Coos Bay oregon dunes.

Here's a few pics from this fall and earlier in the winter. I don't really have a "favorite" place, but anywhere that I can't see other people or hear traffic will work (and that's easy to find here in AK)

This is a little place me and my dad found. About 20mi on a 4-wheeler trail, then another 10mi on a trail all our own. (this was an early season moose scouting trip)





This was a solo hiking trip up an undisclosed valley in the Chugach. I made it about 10-12mi past the end of an isolated little road (This was a "I need to get out of the house" / sheep scouting trip)





And here's a quiet little spot about 60mi east of Talkeetna, AK.

I really like this one in Pisgah National Forest. Here are two different views of us camping at it. The best part is, its free:


Here's another great one in the Nantahala National Forest. Its is surronded by water on three sides, two creeks converge at it. It is also free:



We visit so many great campsites its hard to pick just one.


Outlaw, its my understanding that once we get to Alaska next year, we will find a ton of free scenic areas to camp. Do you agree? We don't really like campgrounds. We would rather be out in the boonies.

I belive that you will be pleased with what you find. There's anything you want, from SUPER remote (bring extra fuel if you're drivin) to full service.

You can get there with a highway rig, but to really see the state, get a bush plane, ATV or a good pair of boots.

I love hiking (and put well over 100mi on my boots every year) but you can't beat the ATV's for really getting back in there, and I can't afford a plane, but that's really the way to go.


Where are you planning on moving to in the state???

Excellent. We like super remote.

We are talking about installing a second fuel tank if only for the drive across Canada.

I still have a lot of research to due before the summer. However, we usually shoot from the hip when it comes to where we are going to be tomorrow.

We plan on mostly staying in our camper as we have pets and can't leave them for very long. You have got me thinking about buying some ATVs while we are up there though. A plane isn't in our budget either.

We have toyed with the idea of getting some land up there and becoming residents, but I am not very keen on the bitter cold. So, as of yet, we are just going to be summer time tourists. We plan on spending April-Sept exploring the state.


How does your truck handle the cold weather in Alaska? Ours isn't too happy in the warm winter temps of Tennessee.
