A thing that sounds like a fun thing for my wife and I to do this summer is to meander down the west coast until we get to san francisco. We would like to camp most of the time.
We will be driving from edmonton, stopping in vancouver first, and we can probably make the vancouver-SF-home portion take around three weeks. I realize that california might not be technically in the PNW but there are redwoods so come on.
What I am having trouble finding is maybe something that doesn't exist: a map of all camping options in a given area. Or maybe a website? [I will be bringing a kindle 3G which does well with simpler websites] Are there just the state parks, or are there more options?
If there were a paper map, I would buy it. If there were a collection of online maps, I would print them out. I would like to have options available in case the place we get to is full. If this is something GPS things do, I could borrow one for the summer.
We will be driving [no route planned but maybe just follow the coast?] but hike-in sites are preferable, if that makes any difference in finding campsites.
