I'm looking for a suggestion on a camping location. Our ideal for this trip is: Boondocking next to a lake/creek/river/water where a 5yr old would have a good time swimming and splashing around with the dog. Hopefully with some simple rock climbing nearby. We're not into big developed campgrounds but would be happy in a smaller campground.
In a couple of weeks I have a family visiting (complete with a rambunctious 5yr old & a climbing teen). They are adventurous and we were considering backpacking camping and lots of scrambling around -- but my wife has a recently cracked fibula.
So we'd like to back off and find a more relaxed van based adventure. I'm having trouble finding something with water and since I don't have time to scout the trip first I'm hoping somebody has suggestions.
