Best Tent Camping: Colorado, 5ed.
Kim Lipker and johnny Molloy


Your Car-Camping Guide to Scenic Beauty, the Sounds of Nature, and an Escape from Civilization

The Colorado landscape is rich with opportunities for tent camping. Millions of acres of public lands are dotted with hundreds of campgrounds—but you probably only have a precious amount of limited time. Which campgrounds do you choose? Where should you go? When should you go? That’s what this book is for—to help you make the wisest use of your time in the wilds of the Centennial State.

In the mountains of Colorado, the Rockies, camping is primarily a summertime activity. When the snow melts and the rivers run high—that’s when tent campers start longing for the crisp mornings, crystal-clear days, and cool nights by the campfire that are part of a Rocky Mountain camp out. Not to mention wilderness hiking, trout fishing, mountain biking, and whitewater boating.

In other parts of Colorado, the tent camping season is extended. You can pitch your tent year-round in the canyon country of the Western Slope, along the prairie lakes of the east, and in some of the lower elevation state parks. No matter where you go or when you go, the scenic beauty of Colorado will never fail to please the eye.

Before embarking on a trip, take some time to prepare. Many of the best tent campgrounds are at the far end of a gravel road. This isolation—part of their attraction for many campers—makes for a long supply or gear run if you are unprepared. Call ahead and ask for a park map, brochure, or other information to help you plan your trip. Make reservations wherever applicable, especially at popular state parks. Ask questions. Ask more questions. The more questions you ask, the fewer surprises you’ll get. There are other times, however, when you’ll grab your gear and this book, hop in the car, and just wing it. This can be an adventure in its own right.

Each campground has been rated on six criteria: beauty, privacy, spaciousness, quiet, security and cleanliness. In addition, campground profiles include vital statistics about each location (fees, restrictions, operating season, amenities, contact information, driving directions and reservation information, to name a few) that help campers plan the perfect trip without unwanted surprises. GPS users will also appreciate that each campground's precise latitude and longitude waypoints are included.

Tent campers will also enjoy a detailed map of each campground included in the site profile. Making reservations online or blindly over the phone can put a camper miles from the restroom, stranded with no shade, or in the middle of a busy campground trail. Maps will help campers avoid those pitfalls, and wherever possible the author has even recommended specific campsites for maximum privacy, spaciousness, or beauty.

Although there's never a shortage for things to do in Colorado's outdoors, campground summaries in the book also suggest attractions and activities near each campground. Fishing, hiking, biking, paddling, and scenic drives in the immediate area are recommended to ensure that campers know the basic lay of the land and have a jumping-off point to plan their trip.

Whether it's a large family looking to get away for the weekend, a scout troop that wants to try something new, or a serious outdoors enthusiast searching for a place to adventure for the day and crash for the night, Best Tent Camping: Colorado has done all the work in finding those special, out-of-the-way campgrounds, and gives campers the tools to plan an amazing, unforgettable camping trip.

Best Tent Camping: Kentucky, 2nd edition
Johnny Molloy


Your Car-Camping Guide to Scenic Beauty, the Sounds of Nature, and an Escape from Civilization

The width and breadth of Kentucky offers the outdoor enthusiast a variety of lands to explore. Add the plethora of public lands with campgrounds and you have a fine starting point for adventurous tent campers. Kentucky is the oldest state west of the Appalachian Mountains. Settled by pioneers such as Daniel Boone and Thomas Walker, the Bluegrass State is steeped in American history, from the settler’s passage at Cumberland Gap to Daniel Boone’s Fort Boonesborough to the Civil War defensive fortifications at Columbus. Pioneers traveled on rough overland trails and along rivers, used for passage through the vast forests that thrived in their interiors. These steep, rich mountains, including the Appalachians and the Cumberland Plateau, that once formed a rampart to settlement now offer preserved destinations. Farther west are “barrens,” areas in the forests that Indians kept open to attract game to hunt. The Ohio and Mississippi rivers form the state’s western border and are its respective lowest elevations.

Today tent campers can enjoy these parcels, each piece a distinct region of Kentucky. In western Kentucky, you can explore the surprisingly scenic terrain of Penyrile State Park and Forest. Or tour Kentucky Lake and Lake Barkley, which together form the second largest man made body of water in the world. This vast watershed encircles Land Between The Lakes. The center state has numerous lakes where you can spend day after summer day cooling off from that hot Kentucky sun. Rugged and mountainous eastern Kentucky has its high points, such as Kingdom Come State Park that presents far-reaching mountain views. The beauty of Daniel Boone National Forest covers much of the Bluegrass State. Rock bluffs overlook gorges cut by water and time. It is a land of verdant forests, sandstone arches, and wild rivers.

This book by author Johnny Molloy leads you to the best tent camping destinations within these parcels of the Bluegrass State, describing not only of the campgrounds themselves, but also the fun outdoorsy activities nearby. The book uses a rating system, which includes campground privacy, security, beauty, quiet, and cleanliness, and gives inside tips on how to be enjoy each particular destination from your chosen campground. It also details prices, opening and closing dates, websites, and other information that will help you utilize your precious time to the fullest, enjoying your Kentucky tent camping experience.

Best Tent Camping: Michigan, 2nd edition
Matt Forster


Your Car-Camping Guide to Scenic Beauty, the Sounds of Nature, and an Escape from Civilization

This book is for campers who enjoy getting outdoors because they like the experience of being outdoors—the quiet of an evening in the woods, the sound of nearby water, a schedule set by the sun not a clock. While no one can predict ungracious neighbors, all 50 campgrounds listed here were chosen because they held the most promise for that outdoorexperience. I’ve tried to anticipate as many different ways to enjoy tent camping as possible. State Park campgrounds offer the most amenities, but are also more visited than State Forest and National Forest campgrounds. Michigan’s National Forest campgrounds often have flush toilets, a big plus when camping with kids. Every campground in the book, as most campgrounds in the state, is found next to a river or lake. And I’ve tried to mention the best places for fishing and paddling, hiking and biking in each area.

If you’ve ever crawled into your tent at night and laid there, wide awake, listening the boom of a portable stereo two sites over and the drone of a nearby generator, all the while illuminated by 10,000 watts of artificial light pouring through the thin fabric of your shelter, you will want to plan your next trip with The Best in Tent Camping – Michigan.
