#020 - Bill HeatherlyBig Bend National Park, Texas2015 Ford F2502015 Hallmark MilnerCamera Used - Samsung GalaxyTo fully experience the vastness and wonder of the Chihuahuan Desert, we camped in a different backcountry location each of the five nights we spent in Big Bend National Park in March of this year.  The roads to the remote backcountry sites were very rocky and rough.  One site was six miles in and required an hour and a half of travel time each way.  It was well worth it because the solitude and night skies were spectacular!

I stopped in the Ranger Station at Andrew Pickens District and the ranger suggested a couple of the free campsites.  This one was along a gravel road on the Chattooga River (Deliverance River) at Long Bottom Ford Campground.  There were about ten free campsites that are first come, first serve with a fire ring and a lantern post.  I had a great time.

My boat is on the beach just out of the picture.  It was my second trip to this spot this spring.  The fishing was great and the weather was good.  It is a nice size lake where I have caught Rainbow, Brown and Cutthroat Trout.  Pathfinder is about 40 miles west of Casper, Wyoming.  Camping in the campgrounds is dry camping with a picnic table shelter and a restroom for $10 a day. There are also places to camp on the lake’s edge.

I went to Bridger Bay campground located on Antelope Island in the Great Salt Lake.  The sun was setting after I had walked back to camp following a soothing, floating soak in the lake.  The campground is primitive, and I felt right at home.  I didn't need any hookups to enjoy testing the outside shower with hot and cold running water to rinse.  I was certainly one happy camper!

We have been through this trail in the Jeep, and found bountiful vistas and a number of places to dry camp.  We wanted to return when we could spend the night in the Grandby.  Since this area is still in the desert, camping would have to wait until the cooler months.  The weather cooperated in February.  We loaded up the truck, made our way down the rocky trail and found this great out-cropping of red rocks.  It had a natural fire alcove, so we settled in for the weekend.  We were hoping for clear starry filled skies but the clouds rolled in.  It was still a great time.  It was less than two hours from Vegas, but it seemed like a whole new world.  You gotta love truck camping!

Recompence Shore Campground in Freeport, Maine was one of the places the North-East Truck Camping Jamboree had their gatherings.We were welcomed there as outsiders, and not yet truck camper owners.  We were invited into campers which were lived in; not shiny new on a show room floor.  We got to know people who have become our friends.  We were invited to share a meal with the group.Since then, they have moved on from this place, but my wife and I continue to go back. It is wonderful because you can go at any time of year leaving payment at the office in an envelope when you arrive.  We go in November because that is when the Jamboree met there.  Maine is wonderful for camping in November.  The crowds are gone, and it is peaceful.  This photo is from our trip last fall.

#053 - Bruce TinklerClarksburg State Park, Clarksburg, Massachusetts2013 Ford F3502013 Lance 1181Camera Used - iPhone 6sFor many years, I've been going to Wompatuck State Park in Hingham, Massachusetts for holiday weekends.  It is a large campground with a mix of tent and RV camping with 20A power in the RV area.  However, it has become louder and louder over time.  Our last visit there over Memorial Day was too much.  From dawn to the start of quiet hours at 10pm it was obnoxious.  So, we decided to look for alternate campgrounds.We opted for Clarksburg, Massachusetts at the opposite end of the state.  This small campground without power is wonderful.  The campground was full, but mostly with families in tents who were friendly, quiet, and respectful.  We had a wonderful, restful five day weekend there even with heavy rain the first two days.  We were dry and safe in our camper, and even ventured out to tour the area including going to the opening day of a wonderful Grandma Moses painting exposition in Bennington, Vermont.

We hit the road in our truck camper four days later to explore Washington, Oregon, California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas.  Our entire trip was 2½ months long and was our first, but definitely not our last, extended road trip in our camper.While on the road we learned of the Havasu Balloon Festival and Fair in Lake Havasu City, Arizona.  We made a reservation to dry camp at the festival site so that we could take in all the festivities.Our site was at an unused golf course that they had opened up to RV parking for the festival.  When we arrived, the area’s host was thrilled because she saw our truck camper.  She had a premier site for us since our rig was so small.  Much to our surprise and delight she directed us up to an old putting green up a small hill, where we had a commanding view of both the lake and the festival venue.As we were setting up our camp site, one of the neighboring Class A motorhome owners who had arrived before us came up and mentioned the host said they couldn't park on the green, and they were curious why we were able to.  Well, let’s just put it this way, the host said no large RVs on the green, just small rigs like ours.  Needless to say, we were especially thrilled to have a truck camper that weekend.The winds were rather unpredictable during the festival.  As hot air balloons floated overhead all around us we began running across the field toward our camper to watch the balloons dip and run on the lake.  What a surprise it was to get such a perfect cell phone photo while running across the field.

Luckily we didn't meet anyone coming down.Once we got to the upper campground, we realized that the ride back up the mountain was well worth it.  The view at Five Springs Falls campground went on as far as the eye could see and the sunsets were beautiful!  There was no one else there.  We've been back a couple times since then, and were able to finally snap the picture as we were treated to the sunset.

The rain was constant from Saturday until Monday. This is one of many of the places we like to camp as there are trails for ATV/UTV riding and many lakes for rainbow trout and arctic grayling fishing.This location can get a bit crowded because it is a great spot for traveling tourists to overnight along the Glenn Highway in Alaska.  This is a free boondocking spot which is also a great blueberry picking location later in the fall.  It also sees many hunters in September.

We turned around to see what the people were looking at; low and behold, there were two wild horses grazing next to our rig.

#085 - Josh and Stephanie PappSylvan Lake State Park, Colorado2007 Chevy 25002016 Lance 865Camera Used - iPhone 5SThis was the first great spot we stayed on our trip out west this year with our truck camper.  It was the first major trip.  It really made us feel like we finally made it and we were using the camper the way we intended it.  The state park is outside of Eagle, Colorado.  You have to take a dirt road out of town to get to it.  It’s not a rough road, but it’s still off pavement. As a truck camper owner, at some point or another, we all get that same feeling of getting away from the rat race of life.

We went straight north to western Montana and from there across to the Oregon coast and back up through Washington along the coast.  We traveled almost 5000 miles in 14 days.  We toured just about every national park along the way.  Now we are two weeks back from our trip and are moving to northern Idaho.

It took us a good hour of searching since the campsites were full.  We finally located this site as the sun was setting and the clouds were glowing.  I climbed on rocks across the road to take a picture of our camper during its maiden voyage.

#096 - Erica MoserSalida, Colorado2009 GMC Sierra 3500HD2002 Adventurer 810WSCamera Used - iPhone 7My husband and I were down on the Arkansas River for a weekend of river surfing.  Usually we just drive into the National Forest at night to find a spot to camp.  We headed up earlier than normal, so we decided to drive further than we usually do to try and find a good spot.  We kept taking turns at forks in the road and ended up by ourselves in this beautiful secluded rock quarry.  It's too bad we didn't have our fishing poles.  Our dog enjoyed fishing in the water in our place.

This year we decided to start early by camping at one of our favorite nearby campgrounds on New Year's Eve.  The caretaker had to plow the road to get us in.  We were the only two people in the park.  This may become an annual tradition!
