This is a great simple site that in my experience was much less crowded than up near places like East Galcier and St. Mary’s. Easy access to a lot of good hikes as well as, Kalispel and Whitefish!
This is a pretty open and can be crowded campsite. Has some of the best surfing on Pahoa side and has a boat launch. There is an epic small thermal pond just a shorts hike from the boat launch. It is a well traveled path so you should be able to spot it!
Best spot to access some really epic hikes! If you do what we did and pull in super late head over to the cabins, they usually have some or the park works will sometimes let you hang up a hammock on trees near their cabins.
The hike down can be a bit steep and if it is raining it gets SUPER wet and slick. It is worth it! A beautiful pristine beach, waterfalls all around, and towering green mountains covered in dense jungle. Absolutely amazing! Be sure to pack in enough water and food! hike back to cars isnt too bad either if more supplies are needed.
Pretty epic experience sleeping so close to Pele. The best entrance to see the volcano at night is a bit of a drive/back ride but well worth it! Talk to locals in Pahoa and Keaau for tips on how to see the best views of the volcano. Cheap site about like $15 i believe.
I camped here a few times while living on the big island and I highly suggest it!! Great access to the beach, a beautiful warm beach, nice hike access, cabana with gorgeous view, grills, tables, bathrooms, and showers. Can get really crowded which is annoying however this site is AWESOME!
There is no better place to camp in Glacier than Bowman Lake. Great access to everything, usually can find a spot pretty easy, and beautiful! Cannot fail here!
We had to leave poplar point do to overbooking when we decided to add an extra night. We were directed down the road to Little sand point. This is another great spot on the water, but is a bit more crowded than Poplar point. However, this site offers a good beach for swimming, helpful staff to point out great hikes in the area, and they rent out kayaks for $20 for 24 hours which in my opinion is a total steal. Overall it was a good experience, but not a place I would stay long term.
Poplar point is a great site if you are interested in spending your days out on the water. Most of the sites are good size, but be warned that 18,19, and 20 are right on top of each other. Each site has a great fire pit and a picnic table and most if not all have access directly to the water. If you go during Labor day weekend, the community puts on an amazing fire works show. Overall the site is great, staff is friendly and helpful, and surrounding territory is beautiful. Also has a lot of great hikes in the area!
I spent a good month touring around upstate NY, primarily the Adirondack and the Catskill parks. I have nothing but great things to say about both areas. I spent the whole month camping at new sites, and taking in a lot of the scenery. As far as the Catskills goes, Mongaup Pond was in my top ten for places to stay. I have to point out first and foremost that it is a wheel chair friendly site and it think that is AWESOME! Price is reasonable about $22 a night for a clean site, nice restrooms, great fire pit, and stunning views and hiking. I had a very relaxing experience at this site and highly suggest it for anyone touring the Catskills!
This is a great site for anyone who does not want to travel far off the highway. I drove out to RI in 2015, and found it to be very convenient for my needs. I was driving along i80 and needed a place to chill out and rest a night, and this was the perfect spot!! The dam is beautiful and the campsite sits right near the edge of the water. I had a great and relaxing night here, and was ready for another full day of deriving when I woke up!
I passed by here and spoke to many people in the area about how the camping was. From the reports I received it seems like this is a great spot for families to have a weekend adventure or even just a daytime trip. The lake it self, which is a popular destination in this part of IL, is buzzing with swimmers, boaters, beach volleyball players, and happy happy faces. Seems like a great place to check out if you need a place to rest in IL.
I camped out at this site during my cross country road trip, and was very impressed by the facilities, but not as impressed by the layout of the sites. I have mentioned before that I do not enjoy being right on top of my neighbors, and Overlook is too close for comfort. Again it is great if you need a pull out spot while on the road!
I was on a road trip across the country and planned on visiting some friends in Cleveland, but had a couple nights to kill before getting there. I did a quick google search of decent places near Cleveland. Geneva Lake was about an hour drive. The campsite is cute and has great access to beautiful scenery. I personally enjoyed hanging out on the lake shore and taking some epic sunset shots.
I was running late on a drive one day, and quickly googled camping options in the area. The site is small but quiet, which I prefer after a full day of driving. I did not spend much time in the area, but it is a good distance from Brandon. I only passed through so I cannot speak to in detail about Branson, but it seems like an interesting place to see for sure.
The Keyesport Rec area is a great place to escape the heat, and take a dip. Not too far from St. Louis and located in a small town are of IL. Bizarre to swim in a man made lake, but still refreshing non the less!
Lewey Lake is gorgeous and the sites are wonderful! Seems from walking around that majority of sites are on the shore, although there are some inland. Regardless of your location, the lake is awesome! great swimming, lots of opportunity for fun and activities, and great hiking opportunities too.
This was another brief stop on my long journey back west. The state park is beautiful and the sites are pretty nice. I did not spend enough time here to give a thorough review, but what I will say is that this site is nice if you need a campsite for a couple nights while passing through Ohio. Seems there are a lot of good options for water fun at this site!
A beautiful place indeed! The sites are all right on or right near the Black River and the forest surrounding is gorgeous. A unique experience while passing through Missouri. Wide range of trees to see in this area, and lots of opportunity for fishing in the area. I really love it because it is secluded and the sites were well spread out!
Driving from east to west doesn't always support an exciting camping experience, but sometimes you just need a place to sleep. Ellis Lakeside was that for my journey. I am not a huge fan of sites right on top of each other, but if you are than you will enjoy Ellis Lakeside. It does sit right on the water edge, and has some pretty great water views. All in all if you are passing through KS and need a place to sleep, pull into Ellis Lakeside.
