Camping

Campgrounds across the region vary from no-services, remote state or federal campsites, to upscale commercial operations. During July and August it's best to reserve a camp spot. Ask locally about bears, and whether or not food must be stored inside a hard-side vehicle (not a tent). Avoid leaving pets alone at campgrounds because of wildlife confrontations, and because it's against the rules at most campgrounds.
