National forests are RVers obsession


Kitty Bean Yancey writes in USAToday about a couple of RVers who vow to visit in every mainland U.S. national forest with a developed campground.

Suzi and Fred Dow of Bisbee, Ariz., plan to finish their 14-year, 153-campground adventure this August.

“We’ll end with Alaska’s Chugach National Forest and the Tongass National Forest,” said Fred Dow in the article. “The Tongass is the largest (U.S.) national forest, about 400 miles long. We’ll put the RV (31-foot class C Spirit motorhome) on a ferry and get on and off.”

  • Never thought of it as an obsession, more a passion. I hope anyone who has camped in a national forest will agree – national forests are great! Hope you can get out and camp in a national forest near you.
