I enjoyed your best reviews thread so much I decided to join in with a related but different thread.
What was your best ever camping experience and why???

Mine was Custer State Park, SD last year. I have never seen a park as nice as Custer. Even making reservations was easy. Their web site has a picture of each campsite. If you are like me and don't back so good you can eliminate sites with obstacles such as trees or large boulders.
Check in was breeze. Our site was long, shaded and private. The staff was numerous, visible and helpful. Then there were the extras you normally don't expect like being delayed en route to the visitors center by a herd of bison; the doe with twin fawns who grazed near our camp site; and the not very wild burros who begged for handouts along the Wild Life Trail. There were several man made amenities not usually found at state parks such as a store and several historical lodges/cabins. And it gets better. What can top Mount Rushmore as a nearby attraction? However, the Badlands, Wall Drug Store in Wall, SD and Deadwood, SD were certainly close runner ups. We were so busy visiting these attractions we only had time to hike one trail in the park. On that hike we saw several deer and a flock of wild turkeys. We have to go back again just to hike the park trails. The entire park and the little town of Custer were magical places.

We've been to so many places in our 2-1/2 years of full-timing that picking favorites is hard to do. However, we've been at Whistler Campground in Jasper National Park in Alberta for the past week and this may top them all. It is a beautiful well-run CG with huge FHU sites sitting in some of the most stunning scenery in North America. At ~$38/night we think it's a bargain. This is our first trip to Jasper but it won't be our last! Here's what we look like in our site: IPB Image
