Campsites

Any place we spent the night

We just spent an entire week in one place. This is something that we have not been able to accomplish for a while. It was nice just to sit still for a moment and try to catch up. Although I never seem to get as much done as I plan. We found ourselves discuss, Read More

Yes, this is what it sounds like. A campground in Maine adjacent to a small desert. Well, according to Wikipedia it is not an actual desert but “a 40 acre tract of exposed glacial silt surrounded by a pine forest.” Wiki goes on to say that over-farming in the late 1700s, led to soil, Read More

As we were headed to the race at Lime Rock Park, we knew we would be a few days without hookups. So we looked for a full-hookup campground near the racetrack. We have stayed at Rip van Winkle before and found it to be equal and cheaper than the near-by KOA.

We can’t drive through Michigan without stopping in either Traverse City or Petoskey and the best place to do this is at Hearthside Grove. It is an ownership-style resort, with lots being individually owned, so that, each site is unique, as it is improved according to the owner’s personal plan. If the owner wishes, Read More

Every time we cross the river into the Upper Peninsula from Wisconsin we spot this campground from the bridge and say to ourselves “Wait, what’s that park?” This time around Darren remembered that fact when searching for stops along our path. It was a bit difficult to research the park as the city’s website, Read More

We had so much success boondocking at Cabela’s, when our drive started to run late in the evening we decided to give it another try. Somewhere along I-94, I decided that if I really pushed our drive times I could work in an unplanned still day. The later in the day it gets the, Read More

Last time we sped through Billings, MT, we stayed at the KOA. It was nice enough, but for a quick overnight it did not really seem worth the money. Since we had so much luck the last time we boondocked, we decided to give it another shot.

After camping the previous night just outside the park entrance, we were able to start scoping this first-come-first-served campground around 11:00AM. I am glad we did, because, although there were quite a few open sites, there were not very many into which we would fit. We ended up with a great site, but we, Read More

The next stop on our National Park tour of Utah was Bryce Canyon. The campgrounds in the park are rented on a first-come-first-served basis. So we reserved a spot just outside the gates in this private and that gave us an early jump on a prime spot inside. We wanted to stay inside the, Read More

Being able to get reservations at Best Friends Sanctuary meant we had to bisect our stay at Watchman. We knew we were returning to even better campsites in one of our favorite National Park campgrounds. Getting reservations here can be challenging and the bigger your rig the fewer choices you have. But if you, Read More
