How likely would it be for you to stay in a campground that involves a 3-mile drive on a dirt road?

Do you like camping off the beaten path? Or do you prefer more civilized places to stay with your RV, perhaps near a small town? That’s our question today. Specifically, how inclined would you be to drive 3 miles on a dirt road to get to where you will camp? Is that par for the course, or is it something you are not inclined to do?



Let’s assume that the dirt road is in okay condition, not one that requires a four-wheel drive or other off-road vehicle to negotiate easily—so most RVs wouldn’t have a big problem.

Remember, the poll may take a moment to load if you have a slow internet connection. But it will be along, we promise!

We hope you are having a wonderful day!

We routinely drive for three hours (not miles) along a mountain logging road to reach the nearest town to where we park when we’re not touring (concerts). We’ve been doing this for circa thirty years! We used to own a cabin in this gold rush era ghost town, but we let that go several years ago.

There’s nothing quite like the wilderness!

Love and All Good Things,

Three miles? Is that all? We do 120 miles each way down a dirt road every couple of years. The Denali hwy is dusty (or muddy) and rough most of the time.

Our campground really is 3 miles down a dirt road. Full hookups on 70+ sites. Check out our activities on Facebook. Facebook.com/triplecreekrv. People come down that dirt road for a good reason.

We even post road signs making fun of our road. Our claim to fame is music. People come from near and far to jam in our Jam Shack. This goes on year round.

If the road in the picture is considered “dirt” then sure, no problem. If it’s covered by two inches of fine powder dust then probably not.

Are you kidding? No idiots, barking dogs, cranky children? I have driven further than that on logging roads to attain it.

Carp Lake is easily a 30 km gravel,dirt road in. Best fishing lake ever! Always worth beating up your rig for.

A 30,000# RV and dirt roads are not a good mix.

We have 80,000 lb logging trucks go down our dirt road. Come join the fun.

In a heartbeat when my husband was alive. Still now if I wasn’t going alone! I’m a grandma with a few health issues that say “stay closer to civilization” but I would love it otherwise. The road has nothing to do with it even for my little camping van.

I’m a 63 year old great grandma, as of last month, maybe we should start an old lady wilderness camping group. Then we can still go but not alone 😁

There are older women groups that camp most are living in their RV or Van life but they join together for safety reason while camping and traveling. These groups are also a good place to find a someone as a travel buddy in case of breakdowns to your next destination. I don’t remember the names of these groups but I’ve seen videos on YouTube of these groups. Some are groups of retired people single women, men and married retirees some at just women.
I’m 58 single women I plan on living in my RV and traveling. so I just started looking for these types of groups so Im sorry I don’t remember the names of these groups or contact info but if you Search YouTube I’m sure you can find them. I do know they are out there, I hope this helps.

I’m sure there are lots of those locations “out there” somewhere. In this case, it’s found in the “land of hypothetical.” (It’s not crowded, either.) 😆 Have a good night, Robert. 😀 -Diane
