All fifty states. They all have something to offer.
Where is Arizonia?
I'm not sure...
For as much as I love Alaska, PA and Colorado I'm bias toward the 12mth camping down here in Sunny Florida. From the beaches to the springs to the keys to Micky's world we even have hills.
Yes, I'm bias.
I would Love Florida more with Mountains
I'm with you on that one. I get my fix by going up to visit the family at our estate in central PA. My wife isn't big on mountains (pun intended) as her family is primarily from NB, MT and southern CA. But I grew up around small cold trout streams, tall pines and rock outcroppings that hold everything from 18th century artifacts to fossils to rattle snakes. I'll someday be buried back up there on the family estate in view of the valley below. My wife wants to be cremated though some of her ashes will remain beside me for our DD's to visit in years ahead.
I have only PUP camped in AZ, CA, CO, NV and UT. During summer, 100+ heat is the norm in Southern Utah. Best CG is one at 8,000 feet or so for cooler weather and plenty of shade. Winter, lower elevation AZ or SOCAL is ideal. Also, scenic beauty and attractions are important. Eventually, I would love to experience CGs in other states, especially out West.
Any thing in the west is great. No humidity and very few bugs compared to the rest of the country.
Most of the campgrounds here in Alaska are basic. You'll find potable water & dump stations, and that's about it (At $10.00 a night, it's hard to complain). If you want other amenities (water / power hookups) you'll have to stay in the cities.
You will find that if you are willing to leave the pavement behind and venture out, you will see some of the best Alaska has to offer. Might I suggest heading west on the Denali Highway (It's a glorified Dirt Road) for some spectacular views, great fishing, and few if any other motorists.
I'm a little partial to Kodiak Island as I visited there while I awaited orders to Adak.
Whichever state it's not raining every weekend.......so that leaves Wisconsin out.
Texas, Arkansas and Florida
I have always been fond of camping in the state of Euphoria sure beats the heck out of the catatonic state
Utah for me!
I am going to have to say "ALL OF THEM" why you ask because almost every state has something different to offer. I have been from one side of this country to the other. Some state have 3 or 4 different types of environments in them. You can go from the mountains of North Carolina to the beaches of North Carolina and they are going to be different then the mountains of Maine and the beaches of Maine. You can go to the deserts of Arizona to the mountains of Arizona and they will be different then the desert of Utah and the mountains of Utah. If this all makes since. Central Florida and coastal Florida, are different then central and coastal California. Every state has things that are unique about them. I know this probably doesn't directly answer your question.
I know that boon docking in Arizona is more available then boon docking on the east coast. I think one of the main reasons is because we have a lot more National Forest on the west coast then the east coast and I think that the National Forest on the west coast are also larger.
You also have the state camp grounds that vary greatly, I have notice that there are a lot of Army corps of engineers campgrounds on the east coast unlike the western side of the country.
There are a fair number of Corps campgrounds in the Northwest. They're almost all right along rivers that have major hydro projects on them (Namely, the Columbia and Snake). There's one in particular on the Columbia I'd like to make a trip out to after I've got a little more experience under my belt.
But yes, every state is so different, and so much variety...
Oregon and Washington for the win! CG a plenty, something for everyone and the most beautiful scenery imaginable!
Living in TX I have to say....Michigan in the summer!
definitely Michigan, we have mountains (the Porkies), deserts (well, the shore of Lake Michigan has a lot of sand), valleys and streams, and the inland Seas. As an added benefit, our seas are not salted and are shark free, and there are not nearly as many pirates these days. We have all four seasons (pre-construction, construction, post construction and winter) and you can wear your entire wardrobe for each season in one day. What more could you ask for?
X2 for Michigan
