The sites are all right on the river and have steps going down to the water. It’s fun to sit and watch all the rafters float by your site all day long. – packjen

DeWeese Reservoir
DeWeese Reservoir | Dept. Fish & Wildlife – Westcliffe, CO

This is a state wildlife area, so it’s free IF you have a fishing or hunting license. The night sky is so deep and clear you can easily see the milky way and all the constellations you thought you’d forgotten from high school astronomy class. – DagsInACaravan

Close to the north end of Sequoia and the entrance to King’s Canyon. Probably the most beautiful campsite I’ve stayed at! – Jrduffy

Keno Camp | Utility Owned Recreation Facility – Keno, OR

Keno Camp, about 14 miles from Klamath Falls, was the perfect spot to spend a few days in preparation for heading to the Crater Lake area. This is a lovely park with lots of bird song. A doe and two fawns appeared most afternoons. – LoveLifeOnTheRoad

Dry camping in a national forest. Quiet, peaceful, secluded. I didn’t check out the amenities at all — there might have been vault toilets, but that was it. – SarahWynde


Grand Valley OHV Area | BLM – Grand Junction, CO

All hell broke loose around 12:30 AM with the local youth putting on quite a display. Road races, firearms and fireworks. Right on. It was a show! Overall it’s a five star because it’s free! – oldmangranite

meadows campground
Meadows Campground | Routt National Forest – Steamboat Springs, CO

We were able to take prime picking of spots, and after running speed tests around the whole place, we picked Site 8, which also happened to be one of the few pull throughs. About 30 minutes to Steamboat, it was a beautiful place to camp. – Jakki&Ron
