"Spacious campsites close to the McKenzie River and Eugene. Definitely worth a return trip!"

Armitage Park campground is operated by Lane County, OR. The campground checks lots of boxes: convenient to I-5, but without intrusive road noise; very large, level, paved sites with vegetation between many to offer privacy, a combination of... Read more

"Tight Spaces but there’s access to the Coeur d’Alene River."

Expect to be real neighborly at Albert’s Landing. During our stay every single spot was booked and spaces are close together with no privacy. Even though we were very clear about the size of our coach and tow vehicle when we made the reservation,... Read more

"Private RV park with the feel of a state park – and I mean that in a good way!"

We spent 8 nights at Mountain Meadows RV Park over the 4th of July. We were camping with family and friends and needed a campground that could accommodate my brother’s 45 ft coach (affectionately dubbed “The Deathstar”). We also wanted to be close... Read more

"Nicely maintained Forest Service Campground."

We spent just one night at Charles Waters but there’s enough to do here to fill a few days. Group camp is reservable, the rest is all first come/first served. We arrived on a Sunday around lunchtime and had a choice of sites, but the campground... Read more

"Beautiful campground and a lovely lake, worth the dusty drive if you can stay awhile."

Tally Lake Campground has 40 sites nestled under the trees next to its namesake lake. Getting here is a bit of a dusty drive. There are two routes in, one involves 4 miles down a very dusty dirt road. The other is nine miles on the dirt road but... Read more

"Awesome inexpensive sites right on the Salmon River! "

BLM has some great campgrounds and Morgan Bar is worth the drive. The campground is small, just 8 sites, but for a pittance ($5 a night) we had a large grassy spot with river access. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring. Most sites are... Read more

"The signage sucks but the campground is great!"

The campground is located at the end of several miles of gravel road (FS Road 520). We saw NO signage for the campground on Hwy 21 and the sign on FS520 was completely illegible. There are lots of dispersed camping opportunities all along the... Read more

"Come for the water! "

We camped on Brownlee Loop in mid-June during unseasonably hot weather and were happy for the hookups. Each site has a picnic table and fire pit. Most sites are fairly well spaced with some vegetation between for privacy. Sites are a combination... Read more

"Stunning campground with lots to do, but NO cell service."

We fell in love with Cottonwood Canyon SP and its Lone Tree Campground. The grounds are beautiful. The property was originally a ranch and many of the buildings have been maintained and repurposed. There are biking/hiking trails that leave from... Read more

"Great option for a free overnight stay!"

We've overnighted at this rest stop a few times. The rest stop is at the top of a hill, so you are far enough away from I-5 that the road noise isn't too bad. Best of all there is a large parking area for the semi-trucks on the lower level, so... Read more

Go Around the Bend: Cottonwood Canyon: Marvelous and Muddy

Go Around the Bend: 2020 – Baby Steps in a “Hold my Beer” Kinda Year

Wow. This has certainly been an…ahem…adventurous year. (There may be better adjectives, but most aren’t G-rated.) Fires, floods, global pandemic, murder hornets, all against a backdrop of political...

Go Around the Bend: Steamboat Springs and Sunset Point

We pulled into the Steamboat Springs KOA on Sunday, 9/15.  As KOA’s go, this one fit the bill. Close quarters for my taste, but we had big trees for shade and the Yampa River ran right through the...

Go Around the Bend: Flagstaff, Sunset Crater, and Wupatki Pueblos

Our plan was to spend two nights in Flagstaff at a private RV park to clean up and restock after 10 days boondocking. By the way, I’ve decided if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em. Henceforth, all RV dé...

Go Around the Bend: From Lakeside Living to Red Rock Vistas

Our good boondocking karma continues! Although it was a little touch and go there for a minute. Rog looked at several areas and the one he was most interested in was Bartlett Flats situated on the Ba...

Go Around the Bend: Organ Pipe National Monument

We arrived at Organ Pipe National Monument on Thursday, 3/21. We’re in the Sonoran Desert and there is a reason why it’s called the “green desert”.  Covering 110,000 square miles, it is the most di...

Go Around the Bend: Where Angels Fear to Tread

We figured, and rightly so, that it would be extremely unlikely to find a site still open in the national park campground in the afternoon. So we went directly to Plan B and unhitched the mule to sco...

Go Around the Bend: Hoodoo Magic

Go Around the Bend: Capitol Reef National Park – Let There be PIE!

Go Around the Bend: Temple Mountain Boondocking and Into the Goblins Lair!

Although we’ve thoroughly enjoyed our time at Klondike Bluff, it’s time to head west again. We had a lovely sunrise and spotted a hot air balloon as we departed on Sunday, 5/7, to make our way to Gob...

Go Around the Bend: Check Out the World’s Largest Spring-Fed Swimming Pool!

On Tuesday, 3/7, we made yet another short hop to Balmorhea State Park, just 40 miles from Davis Mountain. I’d read about the world’s largest spring-fed swimming pool built here by the Civilian Conse...
