What about Ancient Redwoods RV park in the redwoods of northern Calif? The redwoods are not quite pine trees -- they are a lot bigger.

It may be too far this time, but East Texas has some really nice parks with plenty of pine trees:

Tyler State Park
Daingerfield State Park
Bob Sandlin State Park
Atlanta State Park

Brushy Creek, COE, Lake 'o the Pines
Buckhorn, COE, Lake 'o the Pines
2 nice COE campgrounds, Wright Patman Lake

And these are just those in the very Northeast corner of Texas -- about 150 miles east of Dallas. Most not far off I-20.

For what it's worth, east/west around Dallas is easy on I-20. I usually tow at highway speed with no slowdown. I must admit I've never encountered an accident; that would surely cause a slow-down.

A lot of nice places to camp, Forest Service as well as state parks in Idaho too.
1. Bull Trout Lake - Forest Service CG in the Boise National Forest. Two loops - Bull Trout, right on Bull Trout Lake and Martin Lake Loop, on Martin Lake. You would fit in both loops. Check it out on Campendium.
2. For full hookups, there's a small RV park on the Salmon River Byway, Torrey's Burnt Creek Inn. 10 sites and well spaced. In the open, but nice to have the hookups sometimes and not crowded like a couple of little RV parks in Stanley.
3. Various FS campgrounds around Redfish Lake and Stanley Lake, but depending on when you visit, they may be booked. Mid-week is best. A lot of various FS CGs along the Hwy 21 and 78 Corridors.
4. Ponderosa State Park in McCall Idaho.
5. Cascade Lake State Park north of Boise and south of McCall with various units, some with hookups, some dry. Poison Creek has full hookups, but is popular, best time for a FCFS is midweek.
6. Further north is Faragut State Park - full hookups and quite the history there since it was a Naval Base.
7. Even further north is Priest Lake and oh so beautiful. First time we camped there we had a 19' travel trailer. We were by ourselves in October with electric hookups. Water was turned off, but the FS let us fill out tanks in their yard. Then we went back with our 35' fifth wheel (clearly not having remembered the size of the sites), and couldn't fit anywhere. We spent the night there in the overflow parking lot, but still an experience.

What we found is that a lot of FS campgrounds in Wyoming and Montana have electricity, whereas that is the case in Idaho. We often to to Falls CG off the Togwotee Pass in Wyoming. Two loops, one dry and one with electricity. At 9k in elevation, it's nice to have the electricity to ward off the chill in the fall, which is when we travel most.

Enjoy your planning.

Funny, we always avoid sites with pine trees as the sap gets all over the truck and trailer. Maybe all pines are not the same with dripping sap but whenever we parked under them it's usually a mess.

Pines are the worst, but almost all trees are dirty and noisy when the wind blows. Twigs and junk falling out of them onto your roof. I've even had squirrels tossing pine cones at me.

Looking for suggestions. We would like to get away in June and we are looking for a nice clean RV park with lots of pine trees. My husband loves to sit outside in the pine trees.
We are from Northern Arizona so you can see why pine trees are a nice change. Having a lake and things to do in the area would be a plus. Prefer to stay in the Western states since we will be heading across country to Florida in August.
We are retired so time is on our side. Nice private sites would be great instead of bumper to bumper sites and full hook-ups.
Open to all suggestions.
Thanks in advance,
Janet


He doesn't like all those fabulous Ponderosa Pines in parts of your state?

Been all through our state and use to be full-time. Trying to find some new places where we may have over-looked. Let me clarify..we don't need to park right under the trees but would like to be in the feel of the trees. Maybe around the park or within the area. Where we live is mostly cactus, which is beautiful in it's own right but want something different. Just trying to get some ideas where to take the MH since we can not get on all the cruises we booked so will do our land cruises at this time. We are lucky to have the option.
Thanks again
