This is a private camp site in Idaho. It has your basics and always supplies free wood for those that stay. It is a tad close to the highway, so it's not super remote and as off the grid as I would have liked. But, it was still a very pretty spot and the facilities were clean. Some of the campsites could have used a looking over from the staff before new renters arrived, but we only stayed one evening and it did the trick on our last night of camping while driving cross country.

This was an afternoon stop on a cross country road trip. The trek up is quite beautiful if you come up from 90. You'll be on a windy, dirt road for at least 30 minutes before you emerge in this abandoned mining town. The staff at the visitor center is a sweet, couple from the area. They are knowledge and super friendly. You can walk into most of the buildings and really see how everything was left after the town was abandoned. I suggest bringing some food with you for a picnic or lunch. At the top of the hill there are picnic tables and a nice rest area. They even have one of the houses open in the winter for rent for $30 a night. Carry in and carry out, but that would be a pretty special stay for anyone interested. A great place to visit.

If you're driving down Route 90 in South Dakota you can't stop but laugh at all of the billboards they have up about Wall Drug. It's a tourist attraction (not a trap) Stop by if you want a .05 cent coffee, a good doughnut, some fun people viewing and to waltz around in a giant store with old country charm. Every person there is as friendly as can be. It's worth a visit.

It was actually quite easy to nab a campsite on the same day. We had called a day ahead to get the scoop. You just have to show up at 12:30 if they have sites available to sign up for one. We stayed one night on a cross country trip. The views were breath taking. I could wake up there every morning. Ask for campsite number 1. It has the best view. This was also dog friendly and the bathroom facilities were clean. You do have to pay for a shower. Stay here!

This camp site was beautiful! Stayed here one evening on a cross country road trip. The sites are pet friendly, as well as the beaches. The sand dunes are a beautiful trail walk behind the camp site and a beautiful place on a summer day. The facilities at the camp are very new and the staff was extremely friendly. Mostly RV's and not very many tents, but we had a blast in our tents and making an evening fire.
