    Default Your favorite Rec sites?

    Personally I prefer rec sites compared to actual campgrounds, wondering what favorite sites others have on here?

    My favorite spots are Cabin Lake, Coldwater FSR (near where it meets the Coquihalla), and a few spots off the Duffy Lake Rd.

    Anyone else?

    Helena Lake west of Lac La Hache. (Lots of dirt trails in the area)
    Mahood Lake near 100 Mile House. (Also lots of dirt roads out there.)

    And of course one of the best rec. areas is my own place.

    My favorite so far has been half way up Mt 7 in Golden, a couple spots along The powderface trail, and the Ghost has some cool spots. So far all the ones I go to I am able to tow my Beachcomber into.

    Last summer we were gone over 60 days.

    30 nights at Walmart, don't laugh, it's great when you are traveling.

    30+ nights at campsites, where we stayed several days.

    This was on route from BC to Ontario.

    My favorites in the middle of nowhere are at Baker Creek about 30 km west of Quesnel and a lake "Sunshine Lake" north of the Nazko Road, 40 km west. Last time I looked it was not on a map.
    I think that trail is now messed up by loggers.
    We used to go out there on snowmobiles a lot.

    im not a big fan of any rec or camp ground. i like the sites that are off the beaten trail, if it requires 4x4 and some clearance to get in even better

    Up the harrison forest roads you can find some beautiful spots we tend to go to every spring and fall due to the hot springs mainly, but that is always a gamble with access becoming easier to get further up the lake. Had some unforgettable trips and some trips I'd soon rather forget.
