    Default Where is your favorite camping spot?

    I've loved camping my whole life! there's just something about being in the woods or in the mountains away from it all. there's a spot I like going to in somewhat northern michigan. they have 3 small lakes in the area, thick woods and lots of wildlife. the raccoons in the area are so used to people that they don't care if you are sleeping yet or not, they will make themselves welcome at your campsite and eat whatever you have! I've been told there are black bear in the area as well but haven't seen any myself yet. where do you like to camp? post pics if you've got them!

    Small lake right behind our campsite.

    I think he was ready to order!


    And they brought the whole family!

    On a camping trip to the West Coast, we had problems with creatures messing with our food at night. So one night we left out a bunch of "No Doze" pills once. We saw the raccoons eating the pills among the other "treats" in the pile of stuff left out. The next day we saw a couple of them zoning under a tree. We were laughing so hard we nearly wet our pants.

    Those pesky raccoons were cute. The place that I have camped out at the most is dinosaur Valley State Park in Texas. When my son was real young and before my daughter was born that was the first place as a family we camped at. We have also camped out in Colorado several times and any place in Colorado is a good place. It has been longer than I would like to admit sense we have been up there. I may have to put that on my short list of things to do and places to go.

    I'll camp about anywhere I can throw a tent up that's away from other people. Not a campground fan. I grew up in Colorado and camped in the mountains there a lot. Went camping in WY on my honeymoon around green river lakes area--really pretty there. Now usually just camp up the mountain from where we live or at the reenactment out in Colorado. Used to be we could pitch our tent about anywhere, but when I was 8 mo. pregnant with our second child and all 3 1/2 of us were still using our 2 man tent, I went and got us a WAY bigger tent. Now should never outgrow it, but it does sometimes take some looking and/or work to get a spot big enough to set it up . . .

    I totally agree with camping away from others. the times I've camped in a full camp ground just didn't cut it for me.. sure everyone is there to have a good time. but when people around are getting so drunk.. and way too loud.. it kinda messes up the experience. at least that's my opinion anyway. and +1 for a huge tent.. I have a 10 ft by 18 ft tent. love it.

    Both my hubby and I are handicapped, so for us to pitch a tent and sleep on a blow up mattress will not work because we could never get up off the ground in the morning. It's almost impossible for either of us to get up off the floor at home so it would be hilarious to watch us try that while camping! We have a motor home and we love to camp and fish and hunt. We like to be all alone and we leave nothing behind and you wouldn't even know we were ever there. We try to be as green as possible. That said, my favorite place to camp is anywhere and everywhere. See you on the flip side!

    One of the prettiest places we have camped is Jalama Beach off of Highway one between the 101 and Lompoc (the turn off, then 15-16 miles over to the Beach).


    I can't figure how to put in the images so I put them in as attachments. Sorry! The truck and camper in the first picture is mine.

    We have 3 acres of woods in PA. I back my POP-UP in about 100 Feet and we are Camping. We just spent 5 days there. You have to bring what you need. All that is there is trees, fresh air, and peace & quiet.
