We are planning on several fly out camping weeks this summer; are there flight groups that camp; we are considering whether to fly into a paved airport a short distance from the camping sites, rent a car and travel to the campsite. Of course the other option is flight into the camping area directly. With the backseats removed we should have about 350 pounds for tents, supplies, sleeping bags etc. Does anyone know of good sites for fly in camping (in the West) and/or groups that camp together?

Most of our trips are camping in the -10. When you say “west” are you in California, Oregon, Washington?
If California – Columbia is great (o22), Oceano (L52), Kern Valley (lake Isabella) all are at airport camping and always available. Oregon- Manzanita, Havent reached Washington yet.
If you want a group, let me know and be glad to meet up, I know of a couple of others who would do the same. Already planning Memorial Day- so ideas are welcomed- I’ll be glad to load up the 3 women and their suitcases (for a overnight trip Wink no need to take out seats unless you’re bringing bikes as the baggage area has enough room for camping.
If you’re interested in Arizona- Payson has a great campsite on the airport- restaurant walking distance.

Go to theraf.org. The mission of the RAF is to open camping strips on Federal and private lands. Lots of places out west. I'll be using my -10 the same way when it's finished.

Interested in the total solar eclipse on August 21? Camping is available at John Day (Grant Co), OR. But parking is very limited, you'll need to call the airport now to reserve a tie down spot. And be prepared for sticker shock ($100 parking spot, $165 for a tent spot).
In CA Georgetown also has camping. But Columbia remains our favorite, especially if summer theater is running that night.

The State of Idaho has made a sustained effort over decades to maintain backcountry airstrips for air tourists, campers, hunters, etc. See this website for details of them : https://idahoaviation.com/idahoAirstripNetwork.php

Many of the airstrips are suitable for an RV-10. One of my favorites is Johnson Creek with a developed campground, firewood and flush toilets. The turf landing area is irrigated and mown. I took a Twin Comanche into it with no problems.

Still, this is mountain flying. If you have no experience, stop by McCall Aviation for instruction first. They specialize in teaching flatlanders judgement and techniques.
