When you reserve last-minute, your back-window view can suffer. (We had a great time anyway on our short Victoria BC visit).

Okanagan Falls Provincial Park

Hi all, Here is sunrise pic of view out back window at Okanagan Falls Provincial Park, in southern BC, about 40 minutes north of Osoyoos. It's a quiet park, beside river, no reservations, dry camping. Great place to base wine tours and cycling. We meet friends there every July, has turned into a wonderful tradition. However with no reservations and only 25 sites, you need to get there early in the day, but totally worth it! People next to us, had left at 4 am from Vancouver to grab a spot. And the couple that pulled in as we were packing up did a happy dance when they realized they could take our spot - they also had got up at 4 am to get there early. So the secret must be out

Yah, well if you don't tell anyone, I won't either.

First night after the Escape rally. Timing is everything. Looked totally full and then a person with the best spot, closest to the river pulled out as we drove up.

Just the kind of campsite that we like, small and very quiet.

I'm sure I'm not the only one who forgets to take a picture of "What's Out Your Back Window" I've camped for 13 months now in Ten Forward.... almost zero pictures.

BUT, the weekend of the big Oregon Coast Gathering (which I missed for the first time in a dozen years), I went camping by myself (that is really not that unusual). Four days at Champoeg Heritage State Park. Closest state park to downtown Portland, Oregon.

It's a glorious Oregon State Park. Clean, well kept, stellar showers, plenty of garbage cans, etc.

I was in site A32. Backed in (usual) with a valley/pastorial view. No cars, homes, other campers, truly a gem out the back window. I saw two black tail deer and heard wild turkeys.

However, out the front... now I don't have a front window in Ten Forward... it's a 5.0TA, but you can see why, WHY a rear dinette is important to me.

I wake up before the sun comes up. It's nice to sit inside enjoying my coffee, wearing my jammies and the world is not full of other people and their stuff. This view out my back window is pretty common for the places I camp. Rear dinettes rule!

Rear.jpg

In case you're wondering how I took the picture. I opened the door and took it through the slit... that's the awning arm you maybe seeing. I didn't want my neighbors to think I was some weird stalker.

This was my site from the street.

YMMV.

THIS is the reason I wanted a rear dinette trailer.

We don't have a back window because we are going to Chilliwack to get it!
On the way....

Saw Devil's Tower in Wyoming today. Can't get the settings right on the camera but you get the idea.

And this is called a "Resort". Poor Gonzo th' Dawg couldn't even go outside without stepping on the neighbor's stinky slinky.
