davinski -
this website is FANTASTIC for finding details of remote and semi-remote locations for extended camping or daytrips. navigate your way thru the tab of the menu. you will find detailed maps of maintained gravel roads as well as numerous non maintained roads that are accessabe during certain seasons. the maps show you campsites as well as areas that are closed due to floods or other reasons. eastern/western and coastal areas of washington are covered in this website. they also provide details for hiking trails and other off road activities. so far, this is the best source of info i have found for remote and semi-remote camping, especially for owners of fwc or atc type campers. i have found more places to enjoy that are within 1 hour of travel than i thought imaginable. and with the price of fuel these days, it is nice to be able to explore without having to spend alot of time on the road and enjoy more time camping.

Memorial day is coming up...are you heading back to Beartooth Pass?

Planning on it right now. The camper has been off the truck since the first of the year, so I'll put it back on this week.

The planned route is similar to the one I did last year -
Lander to Cody, camp in Cody Friday night.
Cody to Sunlight Basin, camp there Saturday.
Sunlight Basin to Red Lodge over the Beartooth Sunday, back over the pass into YNP, camp in YNP Sunday.
Yellowstone out to Cody and then drive back home on Monday.

All depending on the weather of course....:rolleyes:

I'll be keeping an eye out for you on the Beartooth Pass next Sunday. I'm breaking in a new co-pilot for her first FWC weekend. We'll probably just be zooming around, taking pics and testing some new camping toys I've acquired recently.

Hope you have a safe and fun trip. Keep an eye out for me and I'll do the same!

Wow, some good resources, Especially the DNR website. Didn't even know such a thing existed. cool.

I am looking for mostly dirt roads that are off the beaten track. Don't want to do any serious rock climbing and stuff, but do want to get out and away with the ability to boondock anywhere. I've found lots of stuff on the 4x4 websites, but they are a little hard core for me.

Anyone have any trip logs or reports with photos and maps for the pacific northwest?
