Thanks, anyway, but I don't do campgrounds. That's why I bought a Sportsmobile.

Isolation is my #1.

We like primitive camping away from campgrounds too... but for quick stops and needing a ASAP place to crash this will be a great resource to have. Thank you for sharing.

Greggde, thank you! This site is a goldmine. Unlike some, we do do campgrounds and travel our area quite a bit. So I checked the listings for Washington state and found stuff that would have helped us a lot on some of our trips. Some of the spots are indeed only "way stations" or specialty stops (like the local casinos), but some of them are in really nice areas and offer some special features. On our way home recently from the Columbia Gorge, we stopped at the Pendleton Woolen Mills outlet a little way west of Vancouver (WA, not the Canadian one). We did not want to motor on up I-5 for more than an hour to the nearest known RV place, so we asked the nice Pendleton folks if there was an RV place nearby. They said sure - their parking lot. Dry camping, under a big tree in a small town, quiet and secure, and absolutely free. This day and age, that can be significant!

Free Overnight Camping

After being rousted with my family at two A.M. in numerous States and arrested for vagrancy in Bishop Ca. back in the seventies after I
had lost my wallet while on a business trip I try to make my quick stops as trouble free as possible and I know that several times that I
had read about some of the Forum Members concerns while in route to more pristine locality's . Enjoy

Until you've been surrounded by army guys with machine guns you haven't been rousted...
