Death Valley in the spring. If it had had good rain there are lots of flowers. If you like the desert, then you will love it. Let the tires down and put the
truck in 4x4 and you can travel to all sorts of areas. If you want some
wild life for a night, then Vegas is about 3hrs away.
Camping is rustic ( no power or water in most). They do have central
water and dumps at almost all areas. We had a generator (twin Honda
2000's) that we used when the AC was needed.
Also around Crater Lake in Oregon, south of Bend. There is Diamond Lake
just to the north with great camping (with a generator).
There is also a hot springs to the east of Eugene that is amazing, will have
to think of the name. Great camping and they have a garden that is about
20 acres. . We spent the whole day in the
garden with a picnic and the kids loved all of the hidden pools and fountains.
Ahhh... Belknap Springs!!! Had a hot sping swimming pool, lost of hookup
camping... There are also lots of covered bridges in the area if you like
Also Columbia California, in the Gold Country wine area. Pick a weekend
when they have an event (we liked the harvest festival weekend, and the
weekend they had the '49er days and built a old miners tent city). Stay at
Marble Quarrey RV park and just walk to town on the trail they have. Ride
a old stage coach and eat a fresh made candy or carmel apple. Or have
a beer in one of the 4 bars... In a state park to say the least!!! Go
by the many wineries, and the drive to the big trees just up the road. Used
to be able to drive a car through one of them.
I can go on forever... We went all over that area.. When we go on vacation we just pick a direction and go. We have a idea where we will end up, but
sometimes we end up someplace else. We always ask the locals at the
campgrounds what is in the area, and look at camping guides and use
