The one time I went to Crater Lake it rained, it hailed and the wind blew. But I still want to go back. The Columbia River is definitely on my bucket list. Heck, a son and his family live outside The Dalles and he has my old Bigfoot truck camper. Okay, gotta go there.

Crater Lake is the only one I have been at. For me, that beach one ranked #2 would be near the bottom of any list I made. Seems like a sand parking lot to me.

Crater Lake is a Yes.
Columbia River gorge is a Yes.

Well you do go there for the warm ocean water and not for the mountains. It's sometimes good to change it up. I've always had a blast in Pensacola, eating fresh gulf seafood, drinking a few cold ones and snorkeling/swimming.

It is not that I wouldn't want to go to Pensacola, I definitely do, it is the campsite does not appeal to me at all. I imagine there are many others in the area, where they aren't like a parking lot.

I have really enjoyed most of the State Parks in Washington, Idaho, Oregon, and Montana, as well as the Provincial Parks in British Columbia. Most of them offer the camping I enjoy.

To be honest, I have never really camped near big cities. Could be something like this is all you get.

I prefer the hills, trees and mountains too. I guess it's because I was born and raised in the Utah Rockies. Flat ground never struck my fancy. My comments about Pensacola were for when I've visited there, definitely not in an RV. Our 19 will be the first RV I've owned.

I know what you really prefer, Jim. We were introduced to this the last time we visited Alberta:


We love the song, and the country to which it refers!
