Re: looking for a place to winter camp in the van
Anthony Lakes in eastern Oregon allows camping, and they have really good trails plus backcountry CC skiing. We stayed there years ago and they even had an electrical plug in for free.
Snoparks are OK but you have to listen to snowmobiles until 2AM.
For an upscale experience, try Mt. Bachelor. They allow overnight parking and have heated restrooms and even a shower (pay shower). Its a short walk over to the CC ski lodge. There is a fee for trail use.
