Camping Sites, Places to Camp and Campgrounds

Camping describes a range of activities. Survivalist campers set off with little more than their boots, whereas recreational vehicle travelers arrive equipped with their own electricity, heat, and atv's. Camping is often done in conjunction with activities, such as hiking, climbing, canoeing, mountain biking, swimming, and fishing. It may be combined with hiking either as backpacking or as a series of day hikes from a central location. Campers span a broad range of age, ability and ruggedness, and campsites are designed in many ways as well. Many campgrounds have sites with facilities such as fire rings, barbecue grills, utilities, shared bathrooms and laundry as well as close access to receational facilities, but not all campsites have similar levels of development. Campsites can range from a patch of dirt to a level, paved pad with sewer and electricity. Use this section of Backcountry Secrets to view our list of camping sites, campgrounds, and places to camp. If you know of any other camp sites, please share.
