This sticky "Post your Camping Pictures" (or something like that) is at the top of the camping forum. I saw a few tent sites posted on it.

I went through every post in that thread and there are only a few tent camping ones. It would be nice to see more if they're out there. Google has turned up very few as well.

There's not a whole lot of tent pics around...the best pic Ive ever seen for reference to set up a tent site is this one...perfect example of what you really need to be comfy and efficient.



This pic was borrowed from Natasha's Camping Site and it has lots of usefull info. But again...there are a few pics on this site...but they are fairly burried.

Here's ours from last year...before we got our Copper Canyon.
This is site 1501 (right behind the bus stop).
This poor pitiful Coleman tent was well worn.
This was the last time we used it at the Fort.


Here's our Copper Canyon...huge tent but we couldn't
fit in the 1500 loop with it and our screen house
so we're on 2050 (in case anybody wonders,
it's 432 feet from the comfort station to the left
and 432 feet from the comfort station to the right
according to my portable GPSr). In other words,
this is the furthest most site from any comfort station:


With the extra room, we were able to upgrade to air mattresses:


Inside our screen house:

WOW thanks for the pictures. How far is it from the power pole to the picnic table? Can you reach your tent at the rear of the site from the power pole?

I bring several 40 foot OUTDOOR extension cords and several power strips, so have never had trouble with power.

What brand is your camping kitchen?? That is the exact kind I have been looking for. Thanks!

It's the Lewis and Clark Fold and Go Camp Kitchen. Coleman has a similar one but a lot more expensive. I gave it a test drive and left it out on our deck for two weeks in the rain and sun and never got a rust spot. It's good quality. I had originally seen them at Sam's Club but they sold out before I gave in. So I ordered mine from some place on the internet....can't remember the store.

Can you pitch your tent on the cement or does everything need to fit on the sand part? Anyone know the size in feet of each site?
