I’m in my mid-50s, have a wife and two young kids and am a nomadic backpacker.
I’m going to spend my summer camptime in an area with lots of trees and waterfalls.
It’s going to be a beautiful experience.
And I’m ready for a trip.
I can’t wait to get to the park and camp, but I have to work on my own camping skills, so I’ll be spending my summer camping time in the backcountry.
What I need to know about camping in the mountains: Where is campground and how much do I have?
Campgrounds vary widely in size, quality and location.
Campsites are usually off-leash areas and usually have a fire pit or fire ring.
I don’t need a permit to camp on the property of a state park.
If you’re unsure if your campground has a permit, check with your state park or park district.
Where can I camp?
There are lots of places to camp in the country.
The following are my favorites: At the Wilderness and Recreation Center, at the Wilderness Recreation Center (WRRC) near the top of the Pikes Peak Trail.
It offers a beautiful setting for outdoor activities and includes camping, water and shade.
At the Greenbelt in Silverton, WA.
There is an open camping area for campers and there are a number of public restrooms, as well as a fire ring and picnic pavilion.
It is located at the top level of the Greenfield Mountain, just north of the town of Silverton.
The Wilderness Center is a private, privately owned, two-person, self-contained, self managed, all-weather campground with two paved parking areas.
It has a firepit, picnic pavillon, fire ring, fire tower, and picnic area.
There are two parking lots located at Greenbelt and the Greenfoot Trail.
They offer a lot of space to park.
The campsite at the Greenbluff Trail is a public, self contained, self manageable campsite with picnic pavilions and a fire station.
The park is open year-round, from the first Tuesday of May through the last Sunday of September.
There’s also a two-hour public ranger station located at Campground No. 2 on the Green Trail.
If your camp is open in late July or early August, it’s a great place to have a picnic.
I’ll spend my weekend camping at the Blackfoot Trail, which is near the base of Mt.
I love hiking through the Blackfeet and I’ve been to several campsites in the area.
At this location, there are two trails: one to the north and one to our left.
I will spend the weekend hiking from the north trail to the campsite.
The Blackfoot trails are about 30 to 40 minutes by foot and include a paved, well-maintained trail that’s accessible by bike or horseback.
It will be a nice time to get out for a few hours of hiking.
At one of the few campsites that’s on private property, I’ll take my family and friends.
It also has a parking lot.
If the weather is bad, you’ll want to camp at a campground nearby.
The Redstone National Monument is also close to my camp.
I have heard good things about the campground at the White Mountains, but if you’re going to the monument, make sure you bring your own tent.
I know this is not the most popular campground for outdoor enthusiasts, but it’s worth checking out because it’s right on the edge of the Redstone and the Red Rocks, and it’s close to the Red Rock State Park.
The campground is in the White Springs area of the monument.
The nearby Red Rocks Campground offers plenty of space for camp, as does the nearby Rock Creek Campground, which also offers lots of space.
If camping in this area is not your thing, there is also a camping area on the east side of the park, right near the entrance to the White River Canyon, and there’s a good campground just outside the entrance.
In the summer, I love spending time with my family in the park.
At Campsite No. 1, just beyond the entrance, is a wonderful campground that has a well-appointed picnic pavillion and fire ring with a fire pole.
There also is a well stocked fire pit and picnic table.
In summer, the park is full, but during the winter, it gets a bit quiet and it can be hard to find a spot.
When camping, make yourself at home.
There will be plenty of room for you and your family.
If I am going to camp, I want to make sure I have the best gear and equipment.
The best gear I will bring is my camera, tripod, and tripod/flash.
If it’s hot out, I will leave my camera behind at the campsites.
I also will
