I'm not familiar with Peppermint Creek, so I'll have to check that out. Where we camped at Isabella was nice for a large group, but I wouldn't camp there if it was just me and my family. It was close to the water, but I'd rather be a little further away if it means having some shade.

Like you, I also really enjoy camping. I don't do much of it in California, though, since I love to take road trips and travel all over the west. In the last several years, I've camped in California, Nevada, Utah, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Washington, and Oregon. In addition to camping in those states, I've also visited Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado, Nebraska, and South Dakota, but I haven't yet camped in any of them (at least not in the last several years). With all the times I've been to Colorado, and with everything it has to offer, I'm surprised I have never camped there.

Most of the places I've camped, I have not returned to because I want to see new places when I go. There are some great places I wouldn't mind going back to, though, if I ever end up in those same areas.

I plan on doing some camping up north, me and the wife roadtrip up north and have seen some great places we would like to go back to for some camping.

The best part is being out there and enjoying each others company, Right?

Wow, have been having sooo much fun taking our 2 y.o. grandson camping this year in our P'up!!! Took him to San Marcos River (Tx.) for the first time, in April. He was a natural!!! Rode on the Kayak with my DH on the river, slept like a baby that night!!!

Camped at Guadalupe River St. Park with him for Memorial Day Weekend. Most of our family and some friends joined us. The little guy loves the water so much, he even took a nap in his blow up boat. He runs around so much, getting him to sleep is no problem.

This past weekend we took him & our 14 y.o. grandaughter & her BFF down to the Tx. Gulf Coast of Rockport, Thurs - Monday. We stayed in a RV Park that was packed to the max, but had a great swimming pool, and tons of kids!!! We usually avoid these places like the plague, but wanted to take the kiddos to the beach, which they loved. We had a great time sharing it with our next generation!!!

WooHoo! I'm finally headed out in the morning for about 5 days of camping. We're not going far, but it's probably our favorite spot -- Bighorn Mountains (north central Wyoming) at Middle Fork Campground. My SIL and a few other family members come out from Oregon every summer for a few days up there with us. Weather is supposed to be nice and I've got my fly gear packed.

It's a small USFS campground -- only 10 sites and each has a nice stretch of trout stream in its backyard -- not big fish but fun to catch. And there's a beautiful mountain lake about a mile from it. I sure wish I had a canoe!
