Where is your most enjoyable camping done? Where is your next destination? What will you never forget?

Garner State Park! Great floats, and NO MOSQUITO! River is crystal clear, Rio Frio River. Warm days and cool nights.

Wallawa Lake State Park, OR.
A throwback to my youth; Jr Ranger program, night shows/movies in the am-pa theater, wildlife in the campsites, etc. I guarantee you will be excited to go back again and again!

Oak Creek Canyon north of Sedona, Arizona. But, you can't take a 5th wheel up the canyon. Stay at one of the RV parks near Sedona.



Getting ready to go to Colorado Springs, Gunnison and Mesa Verde,Colorado in late June early July for three weeks.



I won't soon forget the Grand Canyon, especially the North Rim. Thereare way too many unforgettable places to visit in the U.S. andCanada. Impossible to select only a few.

I'll be going to Mesa this Thursday and then Vegas on the 10th. After we leave Vegas we'll go to the Grand Canyon. Does anybody have any recommendations for Vegas or the Grand Canyon?

Dave,

I may be dating myself, but when I was at the Grand Canyon, there was only one campground there operated by the park service. It was a great campground. The rest were private owned by off the park property which puts you about 50 miles out.

Oasis Las Vegas RV Resort - is probably as good as it gets there.Edited by: atom ant

This may not fit the mold of the typical reply, but Ft. Benning GA, 2006. The unit I supported was doing some co-op training with a BCT. I was never too impressed with the hotels in the area around Ft. Benning (still, Pixie the midget stripper was an interesting experience), so I asked the unit about parking the RV next to the condemned hanger under renovation. After 6 years and 3 deployments with them, they were used to my eccentricities.

Funny story, a new and eager 2nd Lieutenant decided he had a place for me to park, right in the middle of the GP medium tents with cammo. The view from the top of the hill was great, a Class C RV with deployed awning, satellite dish and lawn furniture amongst the cammo netting. I new it wouldn't last long. Sure enough, upon my return from the flight line, the eager LT was anxious to let me know I should move it back to my original spot. It seems the CSM and XO were not pleased, but they got a kick out of it.

30 days of work camping. That little RV served as my office and lounge. It was much better than some of the other lodging arrangements I had shared with them in the past or to come. However, was a great time. I do miss my old job at times.

OJ

We haven't traveled much yet but, Tyler State Park in TX and Mill Creek Resort in Canton TX... Tyler is a beautiful well kept state park with good fishing...Then Mill Creek is a very friendly very up to date super clean park....Best trip yet was our Mini Rally in Canton and gettig to meet our first group of Redwooders and just left ther again this past week-end where we met up withAtomant (Brad, Dory and Sarah) They had just picked up their new 2014 (beautiful rig) and really nice people....Wish we would have had more time to spend with them, but they needed to get back to Colorodo and we had children who live in the area we needed to visit.

Royce, if you have time after the rally, head north to the Upper U.P. of Michigan. Go up to "White Fish Point" and you'll see some sights to remember along the water falls.

I use to live in Athens and didn't have a camper then, but know where you are talking about.

Brad - I hate to admit it, but we have done minimal touring in BC. My wife has toured extensively before we were married, but I have only crossed the Province once. Will correct this in August when we do a circle tour through the Rockies.

We stopped over for a night at the US Space & Rocket Center RV Park in Birmingham. AL. Real pretty and inexpensive. We want to go back and spend more time to tour the space center, too.

Also, the Delores River RV Park in SW Colorado is nice and a good place to stay while visiting Mesa Verde. There;s a great Scenic Highway that loops up to Telluride, Ridgway, Ouray, Durango and back to Delores. DO NOT pull the RW on the Durango-Ouray stretch (Hwy 550 - the Million Dollar Highway) unless you're a REALLY good driver and ready for a big thrill!!! I drove it in my Escalade, not pulling anything, and it was pretty harrowing - narrow, winding and huge drop-offs - Kevin kept looking out the window and telling me how far we'd roll if we went over the edge!! That helped lots, too.(;

Now you have me worried!! My wife and I are planning to stay at Gunnison area for several days in late June and early July. I was planning to take highway US-50 from Gunnison to Montrose thenUS-550 from Montrose down to Durango in order to get over to Mesa Verde. Are you saying that is not a good way to go while pulling a 5th wheel?
