I can't believe Taylor Reservoir near Gunnison Co.didn't come up or even Silverton Co. (which allows atv and sxs's in town). Both places offer great boondocking opportunities with numerous campsites and lots of exploring to do with old mining towns and mines to go into, however, if atving is not your thing, you probably won't like the dust and noise, as these spots are atv mecca's. There is also some trout fishing in these areas. We spent two weeks in each of these spots this July and also last year. Also while your in the Silverton area, go North down the Million Dollar Highway to Ouray Co. If there are any bootlespookers in your family, they will enjoy shopping in Silverton and Ouray. Just a note though, the two closest Wally worlds are in Durango and does not allow overnight camping and Montrose which does allow parking. Thought I was getting out cheap at Wal-Mart but ended spending more there than a cg and that my friends is why Wal-Mart allows us to do this. THANK YOU Wal-Mart! First pic is at Taylor looking out my rv at my buddies! Third pic was at Lake City/Silverton (Alpine Loop) 20 ft out the front door of rv!!! Rest are pics taken on Alpine loop trail. Hope you all enjoy the pics almost as much as we did taking them.

ID:	70690our favourite place is at the Imperial Dam LTVA just north of Yuma, Arizona. We like it because it has two lakes, Senator Wash and Squaw Lake (picture) which leads out to the Colorado river. So lots of hiking and desert to explore and also water activities all rolled into one place

O.K., Miss Language Person here will bite:

If the word here is in fact "boodle" with a "d", I get it. Boodle is the good stuff, the reward, the unlooked for but well-deserved prize. Defined in one of its forms at this site as "a large quantity of something", or even as "loot; booty; swag". Pretty much, it's stuff brought back from campaigns such as those carried on by pirates, mercenaries, and other Soldiers of Fortune.

Like garage sale shoppers!

Where do I sign up/on?

Now you got it! Sorry for the mis-spelling of the word. Thought it was with a "t" for booty but I stand corrected. Have fun with the word.

Anyplace that has knuckleheads on ATVs making noise and disturbing the environment would be hard to describe as "paradise"

It is a good thing that everyone has their own idea of what paradise might be. Otherwise, these spots would get rather crowded. We prefer quiet/solitude and wildlife. Most people thankfully do not.

My all time favourites. Some are pay sites, but no services.

I'm headed there in a few short weeks.

This was taken around the corner.



This is the view from under my awning.





It's right here, but don't tell anyone.

In order. 1) Mustang Island--Texas on the Gulf Coast, overflow area of State Park campground. 2) San Clemente State Park CA. 3) North of Quartzsite AZ - BLM Land. 4) Overlooking Wickenburg AZ from Municipal Campground.

Regards

GPS Coordinates = N 26*38.104 W 111*49.977



Great Kayak spot.





A runner up would be Chetumal on the Caribbean. A little further to get to but kinda cool. Still in North America but only by about 400 yards. Geographically in central America but politically in North America. The land mass you see in the background is central America...and is also Belize.

GPS Location: 18.56083 N 88.24917 W



Good boat launch



And nice pool.

Wow...absolutely beautiful!
