RE: Mt. Rushmore and Yellowstine around July 4

Both will be crowded and busy. Go early to get parking spaces.

Do you ever go foraging?

We always like to forage when we are boondocking and on our hikes. Once in Oregon we found some water cress that was so delicious and often we pick berries. I know some folks like fiddle head ferns but I tried them once and thought they were nasty tasting. What about nettles?

Paying for public campgrounds

Just wondering about paying for public campgrounds. I am thinking mostly about places like Forest Service and BLM campgrounds that may just have a pay box and not an office. Do you bring cash, pay with checks or credit card? I can see disadvantages to each of them.

RE: Crater Lake

I love Crater Lake. We were there once when the snow was over our heads. (But we camped in Klamath Falls

Ward Charcoal Ovens State Park

For some reason I can't find much about this campground at all. We want to go in the fall and I'm wondering if anyone knows if there is water available, flush or vault toilets, a visitors center?

Water in or around Moab

We are coming in from Capitol Reef, spending some time boondocking or dry camping near Moab and then on to Canyonlands. Wondering where we can find water in Moab or if finding water in Moab will be a problem.

RE: Washington National Parks-- route recommendations?

If you go to the Mt. Baker area in Sept., save some time for picking huckleberries and wild mountain blueberries! Just keep an eye out for black bear.

RE: Great Basin NP RV Camping

Great Basin is on our bucket list also and plan to head there next fall. There are three campgrounds that are listed, Upper Lehman Creek, Wheeler Peak and Baker Creek. (We need accessible sites so I have them listed) I think Wheeler is closed in winter but the other two are open all year, but don't quote me. Happy travels, and please let me know how you enjoyed it.

RE: I have 1 week

I wouldn't base in Rapid City, I'd base in Custer. Its 20 minutes to everything on your list except the Badlands and thats about 2 hours.

RE: Washington National Parks-- route recommendations?

If I were you I would take Hwy 2 from Glacier and not miss Coulee Dam which will be a little side trip, and Lake Chelan which will also be a bit of a side trip but well worth it, especially if you can take the ferry ride up the lake. But stay on Hwy 2 and check out Whidbey Island and from there take the ferry over to Port Townsend. That way you can buy pass Seattle and you might get to see some whales. After making the Olympic Peninsula loop until you hit the Hwy 12 sign and turn off there and go to Mt. Rainier. Hwy 12 takes you to the Paradise side.

RE: Winging it on your travels

I'm a planner myself but not so much making reservations. I plan to be out in the middle of nowhere on Holidays and in summer we leave the campgrounds to the families and stay at home. I have a trip planned for next fall/winter and when we want to visit a town that only has private campgrounds, I call ahead and find out if they have any openings. If not, we just move on. We don't mind dry camping or boondocking so we have way more options than most folks.

RE: Canyon de Chelly

The Canyon is on our bucket list and we don't mind dry camping at all. I understand the tours to see the incredible rock formations are outstanding and informative. From there we want to go Navajo National Monument to see more cliff dwellings and I understand the Visitors Center sells some mighty fine Navajo silver

RE: FL to Yellowstone 10 weeks out west what to do?

How about Glacier and the Tetons, a week at each might be enough time see all. Then from Yellowstone, if your interested just south of Cody Wy is a small town called Thermopolis and if your interested in fossils/dinosaurs, the Wy Dinosaur Center is there and they offer tours of digs that is really interesting. You could blow a couple of weeks in South Dakota and still not see everything. Would suggest camping in the town of Custer, as it is right in the center of things. 20 minutes to Wind Caves, Custer State Park, Mount Rushmore, etc.... and then the Badlands cant be missed and if you like touristy stuff, Wall Drug will make you smile. And then there is Utah. You could spend a year in Utah and not see it all/

RE: adult only RV Parks California (not Palm Springs area)

What about the Carmel area. Don't know if there are any adult parks but Carmel is a great area. There is a park called Saddle Mountain Ranch more in the mountains near by with a great pool. Unfortunately there are kids.

RE: Olympic National Park

Salt Beach Campground on the Puget Sound side, just west of Port Angeles is a great campground. The best place for whale watching is probably La Push, a tiny little Quileute village, on the Pacific side of the Olympics. There is a RV Park there that is right on the water. The beach is rocky and and filled with drift wood but was the only place we have ever seen whales. And as your driving in the area make sure you stop at Ruby Beach, no camping but have your camera ready. And even though its a dry campground, at least spend one night at the HOH Rain forest. There are tree sections and one has sites right along the river and the other two are under canopies of trees.

RE: Suggestion Oregon, Northern Calif for this summer

Thanks all. LOL the one and only encounter I ever had with a rattlesnake was at John Day Fossil Beds and ever since I get a sick feeling in my stomach thinking about it. Thanks for the warning. I might have to rethink this.
