Any chance this could be turned into one of those google map deals with "pins"? You click on a pin and get details of the camp area...otherwise, you are going to get a list that while wonderful, will take forever to actually be able to use.

Heck...make one of those google maps, combine the lists (different colored pins for campsite/crash space/etc. That would be freaking useful!

I'd offer to help but my googlemap-fu isn't very strong yet.

I don't imagine many folks wind their way through rural Alabama, but if you find yourself travelling on Highway 69 south of Tuscaloosa, in Hale County, stop by the little town of Moundville, Alabama.

You'll find Moundville Archaelogical Park. Basically, it was the meeting grounds for the five major native american tribes of the southeast while in their prime. It's on the banks of the Black Warrior River, and it's spectacular.



Camping is excellent, with good bathrooms and electrical hookups if your Goldwing needs a sewer or power line

I think the fee is $10, but if you go on a weekend, no one is around to collect your money.

Best of all, you get the run of the park after hours. Best camping east of the Mississippi, in my opinion.

Cheers!

Catalina State Park
http://www.pr.state.az.us/parks/parkhtml/catalina.html
The park is located on State Hwy. 77 (Oracle Road) at mile marker 81, just 9 miles north of Tucson and 6 miles north of Ina Road.
Fee: Variable! See this fee schedule for all Arizona state parks: http://www.pr.state.az.us/feeschedule.html
Bathrooms, showers, charcoal grills, we were there for two weeks and it was not very noisy nor crowded. Beautiful views of the Santa Catalina Mtns.

Gilbert Ray Campground
http://www.pima.gov/nrpr/places/gil_ray/index.htm
Go west from town through the Tucson mountains over Gates Pass Road, hang a right on Kinney road, campground is on the left.
Camping Fee: $12/night (See web site for current fees)
Bathrooms, showers, nice views, very pretty. Tent area is far from RV area.


Utah:
Red Fleet State Park
http://www.utah.com/stateparks/red_fleet.htm
10 miles north of Vernal just off Highway 191
Camping Fee: $12/night (See web site for current fees)
Bathrooms, showers, also boat launches. We were the only campers there in mid-September; reservations are recommended for summer months so I imagine it could get busy. Nice view of an artificial lake, pretty rock formations. Lots of bunnies.

Hells Canyon

Hells Canyon has been a favorite place of mine for many many years.
There is a beautiful campground right on the Snake River. There are tent sites for $10 per night, and several RV sites for $20 per night. The RV sites have electricity and water. Tents can stay in the RV sites for the RV price. There are CLEAN showers, nice bathrooms, telephones. There is a grocery store and gas station nearby. There are MILES and MILES of dirt roads all over the place, both in Oregon and Idaho. Great fishing, too!!
If you all need more info, feel free to contact me. I know the area very well!

I was here this last August.

It would be nice if you could only get to it through this website, I'd hate to share all of my fav spots with every yahoo on google maps.

Colorado Ouray Area

Lots of National Forest Sites off of US550 from Silverton.
Location gravel road (I use Road loosely more like a jeep road) Last hairpin before you go into Ouray. Dry camping sites up the mountain not easy to get to,but the view worth it. (you might want to walk in first to check it out) I dumped my loaded bike once,unloaded it and dumped it again.

Fees: Free, Free My personnel fav. Or stay at KOA on other side of town and Pay $40.00 night

Natioal Forest Sevice has dry camping for $18.00 night. A liitle closer to Ouray on paved road.

Route 66, near Winslow, AZ

I mention this place only due to location and the quality of the shower. If you find yourself near Winslow and decide to stop, this is the place to camp.



Homolovi Ruins State Park CG
Located at 35.031314, -110.646512. Just off Highway 40
$12.00 a night
very few campers
great shower included in the price
close to Route 66/highway 40
good food at the nearby truck stop
some semi interesting ruins to visit
go North, South, East or West from here and it's all good.

Cheers,

40mile

Mulberry Gap Bunkhouse Inn & Camping
http://www.mulberrygap.com/index.htm

Between Ellijay & Chatsworth Georgia off Hwy 2

34°47'51.87"N
84°36'42.83"W

Cabins $25 per person per night
$15 per campsite plus $5 per person

$25 per person for Breakfast & Dinner per day (this is the real plus of this place)
They need some notice if you want meals so the can shop & prepare.

Kind of roughing it in style
Hot tubs, great home cooked food (and LOTS of it), Robes & towels in cabins, free hot drinks
Rustic/cabin type bath house, Fire rings w/ wood supplied (no charge)
Nice meeting/dining area w/wood stove
Pole barn available for tent camping in bad weather
Chohutta wilderness at door step.

They cater to the mountain bike crowd, but a great place for motorcycles too.
2 miles of gravel to get to it.
