Which part of your state is the most remote/isolated?

California is such a large state, so there are probably several contenders here, but I would nominate the far northern part near the Oregon/Nevada border (no offense to anyone who lives there BTW).

Anyone else from CA, or any other state for that matter, feel free to name what you think is the most remote part of your state!

Pretty much anywhere that isn't Albuquerque, Santa Fe or Las Cruces is remote. But the most remote part is probably Northeastern NM near the OK/TX/CO borders.

For Washington there are a number of super remote areas. Certain islands that are not served by ferry are remote. The town of Stehekin at the end of Lake Chelan is remote (no road access). For areas served by road, Ferry County and southern Asotin County are the most remote.

I'll add the Mojave desert area as being isolated also.

For Florida I'd say Jacksonville....
just kidding.
...probably somewhere near Florida's southern tip near the MiamiDade/Monroe Counties border. I'm not even sure how to even get to most of that area without a boat/airboat.

For Connecticut, I would say it's a tie between the northwestern and northeastern sections of the state.

Point Roberts has to feel rather isolated since you have to drive through Canada to get there.

either International Falls or NW Angle for Minnesota

You can't drive to NW Angle without leaving the country, however it is still pretty close to Winnipeg.

for NV, I'd vote dead center of the state - somewhere near Gabbs or the Berlin Ichthyosaur State Park. Takes at least 2 hrs to get to any "town" & that "town" may only have 1200 people in it.
