CAMP SPOT

Lagoon Grove

Big Lagoon, CA

"The day had finally come. Our roadtrip began at 6am as we set off for Northern California and various spots around Oregon. 

I had grown up in Rhode Island and moved to the SF-Bay Area after my undergraduate degree in Colorado. Having never explored the PNW, I felt like a trip was long overdue to cure a case of wanderlust.

This picture was taken on the first day of our trip after setting up on a forested waterfront of a beautiful lagoon in Humboldt County. It was important that every camp site and location that time was spent in was epic from beginning to end. Mediocre is nothing to settle for - this site brought the goods.

We had a perfect west coast sunset coming down in front of us, while the infamous and beautiful forests of Humboldt stood behind the site. It was the best of both worlds and great way to wind down a day of driving, searching for elk and walking in the sand.

Couldn't have had a better start to a roadtrip that was centered around the natural beauty of Upper Left, USA."

Seal Rock Beach

Waking up to a van view of Seal Rock Beach is what mobile camping is all about.

Good Morning Mount Hood

In our very first Camp Spot feature, we are in awe from Lisa’s perfect opportunity to leave off the rain fly and enjoy the view in the Mt. Hood Wilderness.

Ghost River Wilderness

With restrictions to random backcountry camping only, the Ghost River Wilderness Area is an outdoor immersion through rolling tundra, boulder fields, and high alpine lakes.
