campsite/route suggestions

What are your favourite parks?

Hi TT Owners,
We're new to the TT world and the forum. We have recently purchased a 2015 x213 and plan to hit the open road with our 6mo and 2yo sons this summer from Toronto to LA and everything in between. The only planned locals we have are Calgary, Vancouver, and Los Angeles area (visiting friends in those areas) and Yellowstone. We're interested in exploring Colorado, Washington and the Dakotas. Would love your favourite parks in both Canada and the US.
With our two young boys we will be limited to short driving days so will be making lots of stops and plan to take a few months to do the whole trip.
Would love to hear about your adventures.
TIA.

What specific area in Vancouver are you visiting?? Lots of outlying areas.. I can help you with campgrounds when I know where abouts you wanna be.

We literally have no plans. We'll be visiting Invermere in mid-late summer via Calgary and through Banff. I've been googling parks. I've always been a tent or pop up camper so the TT thing is new and I haven't camped out of Ontario parks as an adult.
What are your top 5?

Sunnyside campground @ Cultus lake
Fort camping @ Brae Island, Fort Langley
Golden Ears in Maple Ridge

Campsites in BC book up fast and early, so you need to make reservations ASAP

I think the Washington coast is just so so at best but the Oregon coast is a real jaw dropper. Plan this section well and you might never go back home.

I agree with Tunce the traveler about the Oregon coast. It is stunning! We tried to get into a few OR state parks this summer and they are already full up. We opted for nice private parks near where we wanted to stay.
Since your coming to LA, I strongly recommend stopping by Yosemite National Park in central CA. It's really awesome and shouldn't be missed. Happy camping!

Do go down the Oregon coast, there are so many beautiful state parks. We are going again this summer and can hardly wait! We love Cape Lookout, Harris Beach, Sunset beach, Jessie Honeyman and if you can check our Jedidiah Smith in CA. We really enjoyed swimming in the Smith river. At Jessie Honeyman there is alot to do with the kids in the dunes.
There are lots of nice provincial parks in the Bamff area, and Calgary is only an hour away. There is also a theme park on the edge of calgary (Calaway Park) we have never been there cause we like the forests. Sounds like a great adventure! Enjoy!
