    Please identify the place in North America that you would most like to visit on a camping trip and perhaps say a few words about why it's your choice. It doesn't matter if you have a realistic chance of ever getting there.

    I can't narrow it down to just one, would three be allowed (too bad if it's not... ;P pfffftt)

    1st, Colonial Willamsburg. I have a history degree in addition to being a reenactor, this is more or less a Mecca for me, same as my second choice, which is...

    2nd, L'ance Aux Meadows Newfoundland, the site of the only confirmed viking settlement in North America. I know, there are supposedly others, but this is the only one there is no denying.

    3rd, Mt Rushmore, just want to stand in the majesty of the area, look at the monument to three surveyors and that other guy.

    Heading up my bucket list is the giant sequoias. Though I lived in CA for over 10 years, I never got the chance to go - always working, with only one day off at a time. If I make it to retirement, that's the first place I'm headed.

    Michigan's Upper Peninsula (anywhere on the water)
    Yellowstone
    Grand Canyon
    Cape Cod
    Redwoods in Cali
    Vancouver
    New Orleans
    Alaska
    Lake Tahoe

    I need to go camping!

    Too many spots to pick just one! Maybe Alaska ( but probably will not get there). Have also never been to Cal or Fla--Those are probably more realistic goals. We DID get to Mt Rushmore on our cross-country trip in 1990. It is AWESOME!! I think my favorite stop on that trip.

    Alaska, I know I will never get there but, in my dreams we camp all the up to Alaska. At this point of the game, I would be happy to make it to Canada.

    I have to say Grand Canyon and Yosemite just for the iconic nature of it. So far away from me though.
    On my short list would be Eastern Canada. Hopping across the (fairly close) border to camp in another country would be a great experience.

    first choice - somewhere beside a stream where i can see the Salmon run, and if that's not far enough north to see the Northern Lights, that's my second choice.

    Grand Canyon, Mt Rushmore, Niagra Falls, in no particular order afterwards

    Grand Teton National Park or Arches National Park, They are both quite a bit different from all the other areas that I have camped and vacationed in or around. I have been lots of places East of the Mississippi but West of it, I have only been in California and South Texas.

    The West: Southwest (AZ, NM), West (CA), and Northwest (WA, OR, AK). We are actually planning on doing this one (or two or three) summer(s) (maybe not AK, but who knows) when DS is old enough to appreciate it.
