    I usually camp around door county and the dells in wisconsin. I also loved my camping trip in the boundry waters two years ago.

    Most any place in the Ozarks of Arkansas, but "Longpool campgrounds" in the Ozarks National Forest is very nice. Lots of trails, good fishing, and great site's for the 28' trailer.

    The campground host is very nice, and keeps the place up to HIGH standards.

    If I'm motorcycle camping, most any place will do, just get off the road a couple hundred feet.

    If I'm backpacking, the Buffalo river area is great, just beautiful.

    I envy you western folks on this topic. The North Georgia Mountains is the best I can do. But tha's pretty good!

    No Mountain jokes now!

    my all time favorite so far is Glacier Nat'l Park

    For our honeymoon, my wife ans I did a 65 mile backpacking trip in late August 2001. Stunning scenery great wildlife (countless deer and 5 bears not to mention some mountain lion tracks....way cool)

    I can't wait to go back and do it again
