I found this on line and it got me thinking, I would like to create a bucket list of campgrounds I would like to visit. Has anyone created a list of "must see/visist" campgrounds?

I've been impressed with Pennsylvania's state park system and have stayed at several. Tend to go back to World's End (gotta love the name) and Rickett's Glenn.

Inexpensive, but pretty and spacious camping can be found on the Blue Ridge Parkway (what a ride!)

Here's a tip that some of you may not know. If you are 62 or older you may purchase a National Parks Senior Pass for 10 bucks--one-time fee. This will get you into any National Park at no charge AND save you 50% on camping. That brought my recent camping fee on the parkway to $8. Can't beat that! For those of you who enjoy the Skyline Drive--no charge to enter (Shenandoah National Park).

I thought I had seen a thread regarding a list of favorite camp sites somewhere before. I'm not good at the search function on the forum, so just have to go by memory.

My bucket list includes some of the sites on the link.

Also:
Glacier National Park
Yellowstone
Yosemite

And:
All the state parks in Texas. I have a state park pass and only used it twice so far. It is only good for 1 year and costs $50. Hopefully, some day.

You can't go wrong in a michigan State Park. I've camped in most of them over the years and never been disappointed. If Rustic is your cup of tea then a state forest campground will be good.

Welcome to Toad Rock Motorcycle Campground!



Toad Rock has been created based on the hopes, dreams, and practical experiences of the owner, Mary Laird. Motorcyclists are catered to based on her own experiences as a riding camper. Cleanliness, comfort, and camaraderie are high on the priority list.
Toad Rock is also an old fashioned campground for everyone, regardless of your mode of travel. A place where kids and pets are a joy to have around! (Excepting special occasions: call for details).

Recent News at Toad Rock:
Toad Rock Motorcycle Campground was featured in the November 2007 issue of Canadian Biker magazine. Download the PDF (1.2MB)
5 little cabins are available for rent throughout the season. They were rescued from a church camp down the road, and I have left the inspirational messages intact! Not much more than a "bed in a dry room", but they are cute, cozy, and a welcome site for late arrivals, and "two-ups". You can either bring your own bedding, or have linen provided. Please call for availability. During special events, the performers usually fill them.

My favorite is San Simeon State Campground north of Cambria California. You can hear the waves crash at night off the beach. We go and stay for a week every year. Since this is California you need a reservation in the summer.

campgrounds

KOA campground in Great Falls Montana, pricey as most KOA's are compared to state and national park campgrounds, but the washrooms are unique and the best I have seen yet and the tent camp sites are unique and very practical also. Pool and hot tub too. If ever in the area, I will go there again, maybe even if I just get anywhere near Montana.

To tail off of Andy's post above, the KOA in Sheridan, WY is very MC friendly also. We stayed there last summer going to Glacier.

Nice grassy sites complete with a covered table area, pool, great showers, friendly staff, quiet, and to top it all a huge bowl of ice cream in the evening for a buck!!.

Life was good!!

I rode past the Kirk Creek Campground, when I came off the back side of Fort Hunter Liggit. I had been trying to find the name of it so I could go camping there. Now I need to plan my weekend, and get reservations. Thanks for posting the link.

We stayed at a KOA in Laasen national forest near Redding, CA that was very cool. they had clean straw laid out for the tents, a pool, showers, plenty of wood around (free), etc. located deep in the tall pines. Very nice, friendly couple running it.

Corp of Engineer campgrounds are really reasonable, a lot of the corps camp grounds are pretty old but clean. Have stayed at some in AR, OK. MO and Iowa.
