Acadia National Park in Bar Harbor, Maine is magical. My absolute all time favorite.

Anywhere near water. There is a beautiful, natural hot spring in Southern Oregon called Toketee that is great for year-round camping and the hot spring tubs overlook a cliff above a river. Just thinking about it makes me want to go!

My favorite place to camp is in Olema Valley, north of San Franciso. Everything about camping makes me feel alive. Last time we were there the sound of a drumming from a nearby pow-wow reverberated through the campground and it was like we were part of the ceremonial festivities. The box would be treasured if I won.

I work at a summer camp on Lake Sakakawea in North Dakota, and it's my favorite place in the world. When we go on campouts there it's just a sleeping bag, with the stars as your tent.

I love camping on the Jack's Fork of the Current River in southern Missouri, especially during high springtime flows when we can float from the Prongs section.

Hands down, my favorite place to camp is a little spot near Mono Lake, CA. Turn off Hwy 395 onto a dirt road that takes you to the lake. Soon you're at a little pull-out right by the stream. Set up camp. Mono Lake to the east and the Sierra to the west - you're in heaven.

In the Eastern Sierras there is this little camp ground called Chapman Creek. I camped there with my family every year growing up. Fresh trout from the creek for breakfast, gathering firewood the whole bit. I love that place so much that one year, when my folks went without me, I asked my Mom to bring back a bag of the smell. She went around the campsite and gathered pine litter, pine cones, bark, even some dirt. and put it in a cute bag and gave it to me for my birthday. it worked! I used to open up the bag and sniff and be immediately transported.

I used to love camping near Quehanna Forest in Central Pennsylvania. Mountains and cold springs and trees and wildlife. Natural and lovely.

Harriet said...

I have just moved to Vancouver, British Columbia. We did a hike in Garibaldi Park, but I would love to go back and camp there. You have to carry everything in, so this box would sure come in handy!

the west coast of Vancouver Island, by kayak at the end of summer.

I'd love to camping somewhere lush and green! I live in Southern AZ, so that opportunity hasn't yet presented itself.

Logan Marshall said...

Finger Lakes, NY

Camping at Country Charm. Swimming in Seneca Lake. Sipping on regional Rieslings. Hiking Watkins Glenn. Walking the abandoned railroad tracks. Roughing it the right way.

K. Britt said...

My favorite place to go camping is the Blue Ridge Mountains, but I'd love to camp on the California coast.

Vanessa Marie said...

Far and away my favorite place is Point Reyes on the California Coast. Lovely backpacking and it's got the forest areas with heavy trees and also the ocean...ahhhh, bliss. I've moved to Oregon and while, not without its awesome trails and camping opportunities, I still miss good ol' Point Reyes!

Emma said...

I love the boundary waters, and have always wanted to try out the national parks...any of them will do!

badaries said...

My favorite place to go camping is in Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks, sleeping under the largest trees in the world!

Keeks said...

I love camping in the Sierra Nevadas. Alpine Lake is a great secret spot.

A Lady said...

Nostalgically speaking, my favorite place would have to be Breakneck Campground in PA, where my friends and I made of point of going once a summer during college. We'd go on hikes, drink cheap beer, cook over the fire and look at the stars-everything camping should be! And if there's somehow an alternate universe where grizzly bears don't exist, I'd love to camp in Yellow Stone.

Sarah said...

Growing up my family went camping every summer at Ohiopyle, but the backyard is always fun too!

Meg S said...

I would love to go camping somewhere beautiful near the water - not sure where yet!

Appalacian Mountains in PA for woods camping and Cape Henolopen Park in DE for beach camping

JenniferB said...

Big Bend national park, just outside of Fort Davis, Texas. I'd also spend some time in Marfa -- there's a trailer park/campground just outside of town.

By far, I would love to go camping in the Acadia National Park in Maine.

I grew up in Southern California, so camping invariably meant going out to the desert. The Glamis Dunes, Joshua Tree, even just pulling off the freeway on the way to Vegas. Once in awhile we'd camp on the beach, sometimes at Catalina Island.

Scrub bush, cactus and low palm trees came to represent camping for me as a kid. Tones of pale yellow and gold. Dusky hot Santa Ana winds kicked up in the late afternoon.

Then I moved to Boston at 26, to attend graduate school. I'd never spent any time on the East Coast at all, let alone New England.

A new friend showed me pictures from her last camping trip, at a place she called Acadia.

The colors hit me first. The greens, emerald and glistening, seemed to jump off the screen. And the lake! I'd never in my life seen such a shade of blue.

The textures hit me next: the plants! Plants and trees and grasses everywhere! The slippery, silvery piles of stones on the beach at the light house!

It seems an impossible place.

By far, I would love to go camping in Acadia National Park in Maine.

The best camping of my life was in Landmannalaugar, in Iceland's interior. Take a dip in the natural hot springs at midnight with new friends from all over the world, fry up some grilled cheeses on your camp stove after, wash them down with some whiskey, then curl up in your tent, nestled between the mountains.

My favorite place to camp is Bahia Honda State Park in the Florida Keys!

Jane Freeborn said...

My two best friends and I, for the past 9 years, no matter where we've been. have spent a long weekend camping on the New York side of Lake Ontario. It's the highlight of our year and keeps us sane, and I would love to share this with two of the most important people in my life.

Beth said...

Garner State Park, Concan, Texas! Hot days of floating in the Frio River on inner tubes and cool nights around a campfire make for a charming evening.

TaCo said...

Camp Wohelo in Lake Sebago, Maine. Spent many wonderful summers there by the lake with all of us girls learning to make fires, paddle canoes, and sail boats!

Cute cute box! My favorite camping is next to a lake. We wake up early, waterski while the water is smooth, nap during the choppy water afternoon, ski in the evening. Perfect vacation.

I love camping, especially at the Mavora lakes in the South Island of New Zealand. So peaceful!

Kat said...

Sugar Pine Reservoir, near Foresthill in the Sierra Nevada mountains. Sugar pines have a distinctive smell, and the dogs in the car can tell when we're getting close because they pick up the scent! They jump all over the place and start pressing their noses onto the windows.

meredith said...

Anywhere nestled between mountains or by the sea.

Taylor Turner said...

I have a passion for camping! Call me predictable, but I still haven't made it to yosemite and that's my next hope!

I camped on the Sunshine Coast in British Columbia once and it was so beautiful. We were right beside the water and seals swam by while we watched an amazing sunset.

Kristin Sunsdtrom said...

We take a yearly camping trip with all of our family and friends in upper Michigan every summer near Munising-the specific spot is a secret because it's so pristine and remote, we don't want anyone else to know.

Sherri said...

Acadia National Park! Especially the camping in Seawall, so close to the shore!

I love camping with my husband and our small grandson. We have the best backyard for a one year old camper.

The Adirondack Mountains are my favorite place to camp. I have to say, my brother got me an Opinel knife for yard work and it is possibly the best pocket knife I've ever had.

John Stokes said...
