I have a small 12' camper for the back in the mountains camping.
The Allegany State Park in the Southern Tier of NY and NW Pa. is a great camping area. There are many types of cabin styles and even great spots for RV's, trailers, pop ups and more. The park has about 100+ hiking/exploration trails all over the mountains (Appalachian foothills). There is also a huge bike trail that goes around a large lake where you have a small boat launch/rental and picnic areas. 2 thumbs up!!!!!

When I use to go camping it was always somewhere different than the area I live. So I like the coast. NH has a state campground right on the ocean thats very inexpensive which is why there is a waiting list. Its nice. A friend of mine said that there is a good one in the Keys but thats the same thing hard to get reservations. I live in the mts and there are lakes near by so like a I said different is the ocean. Camping at an event would be fun. Like the boonedangle or whatever it is down there in TN. That music thing. kinda like a woodstock but with country and blue grass music, now that would be a hoot. OR of course a hunting trip of any kind.

I do a camping /fishing trip in Canada every year. Trophy pike fishing, occasional bear visit, and great wilderness camping for one week.

The only music I like when camping is a chorus of loons and wolves, that will put you to sleep everytime! Bear visits are another thing!

I'm glad you said that I forgot we have paid reservations at Hunting Island State Park. It is right on the ocean above Hilton Head. It's one of those that is hard to get reservations for. We made our reservations last summer.

I have looked at going to Bonarroo music festival. They have a sweet 4 day package deal for VIP tickets that include reserved seating for two stages, buffet meals and nicer bathroom facilities including showers. If I went that's the only way I would go, tent camping in July here can be brutal.

i looked at that bonnarro festival.sounded good till ya read all the details.Sounds a little to "hippy" for my taste but to each his own

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

What have you got against hippies, Cartman.? lol I think the line between hippy and redneck is very thin. Both just want to be left alone to do their own thing. Like when Willie Nelson was at a club in Texas and of course who would go see Willie? rednecks and hippies. They started scuffling in the crowd and Willie stopped the show and pointed out the similarities and finished the show with out a problem. I've got friends that lean towards hippy, redneck, rapper, hillbilly, cityfolk, worldtraveler, liberal dems, republicans, greenpeople, all kinds of ways of thinking which I always find it interesting. No, I don't smoke dope or do any drugs other than caffeine in my coffee and tea. I like these people and I think they like me. A good person is a good person. I guess I'm comfortable with who I am so that makes me comfortable in the company of those who may be different than me. Besides it would be a dull world if we were all the same. just me babbling.
