On the road from Happy Valley to Churchill Falls. Near to the road. Too narrow for big rigs.

I was cycling but the road sometimes is very bad and i couldn't reach the pass.
I found this gravel place flat and perfect for tent or car.
There is a small stream coming directly from the mountain behind.
Close to the road but very quiet apart trucks in early morning, for tent can be more hidden.
Very cold night but amazing sunrise

$12 a night or only $6 with relevant interagency pass (America the beautiful included). The pitches are rocky and most on a slight slope, the road around the site is worn dirt and bumpy with small turnarounds. Walk first if you have a large or low clearance vehicle.
Portaloos and bins along with plenty of picnic tables, bear proof storage boxes and fire pits.

This one was out of order but there are more along this road, all within big sites but are before the "fee area" so I guess they are free.
All blocked and overflowing today, please stop putting disposable gloves down the drain!

Small parking lot w a picnic area. Good for a night. Not sure if you’re allowed to post up here but nobody bothered us.

As described perfect place ! It’s like any usual state park (fire ring, tables, sites ) expect that it’s free and you even get free firewood and free canoe if you want to take a tour on the lake! Thanks for this gem!

Actually we didn’t stay there as we were not able to find the overnight parking lot. Signs NO IDLING are everywhere so we drove to Walmart in Princeton.

$20 dry RV camping. Make sure you are on a dry pitch as if you park on a pitch with electricity etc you will have to pay for it ($40). Pick up a leaflet from the small box at the entrance to find which pitches are which. Gets busy especially around the 4 July celebrations & Mt Marathon race. First come first served except for certain dates when certain pitches are booked (see noticeboard). There are a couple of showers for $2 per 10 mins (get tokens with dollar bills from machine at shower/toilet block). Also portaloos. Great views. About 1/2 mile into town. Library/Museum has free fast WiFi.

Grassy area on top of a hill (spectacular views but difficult to find a flat space), defined by an electric fence. It has one communal picnic shelter, several braai stands, long drop toilets (ladies was NOT clean and you need to take your own toilet paper), a pile of wood to chop yourself for a fire, and a borehole with hand pump. No power, no other source of water and no private cubicles in which to strip wash or use a camp shower (unless you count the toilet cubicles!).

Price is US$25pppn plus park entry fees ($40pppn + $40 foreign registered vehicle).

So basically two European adults and one vehicle is $170 per night, but that is charged per night so does allow you two days in the park - the day you arrive and the day you leave.

If you're staying at or near KaingU Lodge they have a short scramble/bush walk to see rapids, and a nice riverside bar.

Great lodge and worth the drive through the GMA. We met the owner and he gave us lots of advice for our trip.

If you don’t have vehicle insurance for Macedonia, you can buy it here - even on a Sunday. The shortest option is 15 days and costs €50 for a car or motorcycle. (Our Jeep Wrangler was considered a car). They accept cash or credit cards.
The Macedonian border official will keep your passport while you purchase insurance and then return it to you when you show him the insurance document. It’s all very quick and easy.

Très belle vue. Camping très calme. 2 jours hors saison, donc le camping pour nous. 35/pppn. Un peu cher, car personne n'est venu nettoyer ou vider les poubelles. Victor très sympa.

Campground with pads and tables. Fire pits. BEWARE you need to register online to get a space, even though there are available sites. Sucks because there is no cell reception there. Plan ahead. Cute campground on stream.

Super fast, almost no papework required. I have crossed from Kyrgazstan to Kazakhatan, with a motorcycle. Basically no luggage check, very friendly people at both borders.

If you go there just for the shower, you have to pay the day use fee at the entrance station. It's 6,- per car which makes the shower quite expansive...
