Boondocking - Where is the place you call your "Paradise" in the US and Canada?

There must be thousands of very special and beautiful places to park our RVs in the US and Canada.

Let's hear about them ... If you have the Lat/Lon from your GPS for it, please share it. If you have pictures, show us where we can take our RVs so we too can hear our self say the internationally recognized phrase of RVers everywhere ...

Aaaaah, "The good life" RVing, "La bonne vie" RVing, "La buena vida" RVing ... or as a Swahili would say "maisha mema" RVing.

I think if you are asking for lat/lon of a boondocking paradise it will be a lot like asking for the location of the best spot for fishing

Any place where all you can hear is what nature provides, and that includes all neighbors being far enough away so you cannot hear them at all!

Does not matter is its desert or mountains, ALL places have their own beauty!

IMHO

Can't tell you. That is highly classified information.

In Alaska any place you can park your RV is a great place.

Lets expand our horizons a bit to include North America in general. Here would be ours. El Requezon beach. Baja California. Hope to be back there in January of next year. Definitely the quietest and most tranquil spot we have found. Think it was around 4 to 6 bucks per night.

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.

If someone posts the lat/long suggest you map on Google Earth to make sure it's not a Walmart

We have been rv'ing for years and have never stayed at a place that has full hookups. Seems like it would defeat the purpose of going. Though we only go for weekends and are no full timers. My favorite place in the whole world to go is a place close to where I live here in Oregon. Have gone there since I was a kid, took my kids there when they were young and now they come with the grandkidies. We atv and can ride out of the campground right into national forest land that has thousands of miles of logging roads to ride. Its also my oldest grandsons favorite place to camp, it opens on memorial day weekend and we are always one of the first people there. Truly heaven on earth

The falls in this area are beautiful.




A picture of my oldest son and his oldest son.




My oldest grandson at the campground before he was 1, all our kids and grandkids have been on electric quads before their first birthdays.
